[Exclusive] Top 10 Best URL Shortener Tools / Websites


If I need to define the URL shortening term then I would say, its a service in which a long-ish URL is inserted and on a click of button, the url is shortened to maximum 10 characters. So, whenever anybody clicks on that link, he/she will be redirected to the original link.

There are many advantages of shortening the url. For example look at my G+ url,

https://plus.google.com/111053365313216547746. Very tough to remember and recognize right ? So, I shortened it into this,
  • It looks more cleaner, simpler and easier to remember. 
  • CTR of shortened URLs will also increase. You just need to type the attractive G+ or FB status and put the short url with it. 
  • You can also track your visitors.
So, these were the few advantages of using url shorteners. Twitter has initiated the concept of shortening URLs. So, if you wanted to publicize your blog post on twitter, you will just get 140 characters. Here, you must have use short url to complete your tweet in 140 characters and as it can be re-tweetable by others too.
