bit.ly links not working

more options
      • Sincere apologies. Just found the answer !!! When I copied the link I picked up a space added to the link <}:-( Can't see how to delete my original question - only edit it ***

Up until now all my saved bit.ly links worked fine when I put in the short link: e.g. bit.ly/HfdSfGrd

But now with some I get: Something's wrong here.

This is a 404 error, which means you've clicked on a bad link or entered an invalid URL. Maybe what you are looking for can be found at Bitly.com. P.S. Bitly links are case sensitive.


Any suggestions as to what has gone wrong and the cure?

Thanks FredMcD. When I copied the link I had picked up a space added to the link. So always check you haven't any spaces in your bit.ly links.
