Have you ever had to send a really long URL to someone in an email only to have it end up broken so the receiver could not click on it and get to the correct page? I encounter this often when I send payment links to clients that are generated by my shopping cart.
I’ve known about a free service called tinyurl.com for some time, but I never liked the way it creates URLs that have a bunch of random letters and numbers. Last night I discovered another site that does the same thing with one big improvement…you can create a short URL with a "nickname" so the URL makes sense to the receiver.
The site is snipurl.com. The nickname feature is what I like the best about it and it’s FREE!
3. MORE INTUITIVE URLs WITH NICKNAMES
Don’t like URLs like http://snipurl.com/h because they are just some random text? Then you can make http://snipurl.com/digicam_review and post more intuitive URLs to your mailing lists or in your newsletters with sophisticated user tracking etc.
