6 reasons why short URL’s are useful

by Bryn Youngblut on June 22, 2008

I started a short URL website not long ago and I wanted to discuss the advantages of using these free internet tools. First off the purpose of this tool is to turn a long URL into a short one, for example:





  1. Link will not break up in emails
  2. Fits where space is limited (IRC, chat, text messages)
  3. Cloak/redirect referral links
  4. Easy to remember
  5. Ability to make custom link paths (example: http://skeefurl.com/awesome/)
  6. Track hits
