The Web Link collector lets you share a survey link and collect responses. You can share your survey link anywhere—like on social media, in an email (using your own email client), or print it on a newsletter.
To create a Web Link:
By default, your survey URL will look something like this, with a string of letters and numbers at the end:
Your Web Link Collector URL is a public link, meaning that anyone who has it will be able to access your survey and complete it. Web crawlers can also access public links, and may index your survey on a search engine.
If you wish to use a Web Link Collector but do not want the link to be public, consider password-protecting your survey.
Depending on your plan, you can create a Custom URL Ending or use the White Label URL to remove SurveyMonkey branding from your web link. If you customize the URL after you send the survey out, both the old link and the new link will work.
By default, Web Link Collectors record IP addresses. However, this information can't really help you track survey takers. Instead, you can add required questions to your survey to collect identifying information from survey takers, or you can use Custom Variables.
Copying a web link creates a new link for you to share a previous survey at a different time or with new survey takers.
To create a copy of a Web Link collector:
A new Web Link starting with Copy of is added to the Collect Responses section of your survey.
Most of your customized collector options apply to the copied web link. To review and edit your collector options before sending your survey, select Edit Collector from the survey's three dot dropdown.
