The Share a Link feature allows you to automatically pull in specific stories from an external source and approve it to be eligible for your Subscribers' News Digests. This is a good alternative to creating a piece of Content from scratch because you can pull in the information from an already published article without having to create Content from scratch.

To share a link, go to Content, then click on the Share a Link icon (yellow icon located in the left hand menu). Paste the link in the box under Article URL and click the check mark. Cerkl will automatically generate the article's Title, Subtitle & Summary, and Story Image based off of the information inside the article.

The information pulled in from the link is not final. If your URL does not generate content automatically, or does not pull in exactly what you expect, you can edit all the information that is automatically brought in when inside of the Story Editor, including setting a new title or Story Image.

To learn more about what options are available, please review: How to Create/Edit A Story

Please note: Cerkl is unable to provide support third-party hosted links if receiving an error. Server specific security configurations may prevent your from using the link in this way. We are unable to bypass these security settings.

Link Tracking

If you would like to track who clicks on the link, you can turn Link Tracking ON using the toggle above your link. You can then use these Insights to see the number of Subscribers that clicked on the link.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at or use the support Chat toward the bottom right-hand corner of any page.
