Some website links are way too freakin’ long. You may want to copy and paste the address into a messenger, email or post it on a forum but the huge address is a pain to deal with. There is a service I started using at the beginning of this year which takes any long web address and shrinks it into a very short one in return.


The service is from the website Bit.ly. It is 100% free to use. It is not necessary to sign-up for a free membership to use but doing so allows you to keep track of all the short web links you have created. A really cool feature I like when you sign up for a free membership is that you can also customize your web links. So if the site spit out a URL with the address of www. bit.ly/Y73r94J, you can change it so something like, www. bit.ly/MyCustomLink. Of course the custom link address must not be one that is already taken.

In the following Shorten Web Links Using Bit.ly video tutorial I will take you step-by-step and you will easily learn the following…
1. Introduction to the website www.Bit.ly
