This week’s cool tool recommendation is Cutt.ly – a URL shortening tool.
What is a URL Shortener?
A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is the address you type to access a website on the Internet. A URL shortener (also called a link shortener) makes it easy to manage long URLs. By using a URL shortener, you can reduce the length of your URL, which makes them more shareable and memorable.
In addition, long URLs with letters, numbers, backslashes, and question marks can appear suspicious. As a result, people may be reluctant to click on the link.
There are several URL shorteners on the market, and today I am going to share one of those with you – Cutt.ly.
Let’s see it in action.
As well as shortening your URL, Cutt.ly lets you create QR codes and customize your link to match your brand name or indicate what it is about (this is available on the paid plan). Furthermore, you can find out who clicks on them, where they are, and when they do so you can assess their effectiveness.
