Short URL for your links

Day by days, users are using various form of services like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Viber, etc… to communicate with others and send/receive messages. Some of these services allow users to type only limited number of characters in single message. Hence, if you would like to a link which has long URL, you will need to shorten your URL in such a way that it still directs users to correct page on Internet.

 You can achieve this by a method call URL shortening, it is a unique way to convert your long URL in to shorter length and still directs user to correct page. For an example, http://goo.gl/1uSLM0 is shorted URL for our blogs’ main page: http://blog.techietalks.co.uk. You can create a separate short link for each of your webpages or blogs.

The main advantage of a short link is that it can be easily communicated and typed without any error.

Users don’t need to change their current configuration or possess in-depth technical knowledge. There are various sites who offer users to shorten their URL online. Some of them are:

Google URL Shortner - https://goo.gl/  
Bitly URL Shortner – https://bitly.com/
TinyURL – tinyurl.com/
Hotsuite – ow.ly/   
Twitter – t.co/

  1. Great article. So what you are saying is that you can create shorter links of short links by using the short link services? Short-link-ception?

    So eventually after years of work, I could end up with a 1 letter short link?

    I would like to reserve C and S please, if that's ok.

    Please send the forms to my house in Amsterdam so I can book this asap.
