URL Shortening

URL shortening is a technique on the World Wide Web in which a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) may be made substantially shorter in length and still direct to the required page.

There are a number of services that allows you to shorten your URL. Some of the more common ones that I use:

Google URL Shortener – http://goo.gl/

TinyURL – http://tinyurl.com/

bitly – https://bitly.com/
