Here are some services that can help you to create your one shortcut URL. All those services have quite some different features that you can discover by visiting them. The main purpose of course is to shorten your URL.

For example, you can turn
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode =&q=louth&ie=UTF8&z=12&iwloc=addr&om=1
into :

http://is.gd/1
Here are just a few of the many uses
of those services:
  • Avoid “unclickable” situation when your URL is too long and you have put it in some posts, emails or forums;
  • Useful for mobile phone when you are texting;
  • Useful for Myspace, Facebook, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, etc. It's just easier to share that way. It saves space and looks better.


















































How to encourage this blog if you like it:

Just do something like that, and I will have the huge pleasure to continue posting the best of the creativity I have.
