<li>If you prefer random short URLs (ie <code>j3kz1</code> then <code>13hz7</code> like Bitly does), just activate the plugin that comes with YOURLS.</li>

<h3 id="stats">"Stats don't update as I think they should", "difference with Google Analytics", etc...</h3>
<ul>
<li>Out of the box, YOURLS updates traffic stats every time a short URL is requested. Period.</li>
<li>This said, some clients (like indexing bots, your internet browser) may skip requesting a short URL if they have the final destination known in cache.</li>
<li>Conversely, other stat tools may use different techniques to track hits (using javascript or not, using IP adress, filtering multiple requests by same client, etc...)</li>
<li>Bottom line: your mileage may vary with different tools, but there is no bug in YOURLS regarding that matter.</li>

<h3 id="noindex">There is no index page at the root of the install</h3>

<li>Indeed. It's intended. It's up to the user to make what they need. Some will redirect the root to a different place, some make a public interface for anyone to shorten links, some make a portfolio. You make it.</li>
