URL Shortener

Last Update: December 15, 2013

For our newer members or those of you that don't know, there is a free tool available for shortening any url link that you want to.

There's probably a few. Here's Google's -


If you are asked to sign in, then you need to create a Google account. Most of you will already have this.

So next time you see a URL link you want to share, that could fill up a book, simply open up the aforementioned free tool and copy/paste it in the box provided. Hit the blue Shorten URL button and you're done.

Too easy, but incredibly useful.

A few months ago Vimal, I'd no idea what those weird looking links were that I saw every now and then on people's sites. We have them here at WA, if you click on the grey/white Affiliate Link button.

You're welcome Ken. It just makes it look a lot better if you want to add a link to your site as well.
