Why is it important to shorten URLs


Shortened URLs occupy less space in your posts thereby making the posts look better. Moreover, custom URL shorteners also allow you to make customized URLs as you like for your brand so that your audience can easily recognize your brand name. 

Hence, it is very important that you use shortened URLs whenever you can. Another benefit of using shortened URLs is that they help you make better backlinks. This is because people who have bookmarked your pages with shortened URLs are much more likely to link to those pages than if they had bookmarked them with the long versions of your URLs. And, of course, a well-linked page will help your search engine rankings. So, how do you use shortened URLs? The answer is easy:

Just paste the codes that appear after someone clicks on your "share" button when they are sharing one of your posts on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter. Pasting a shortened URL into a post on any of these sites will cause the site to automatically transform your shortened link into a unique link which will then be visible only to the people who have clicked on your link. For example, if you have a blog post titled "My Amazing Hotel Room" and you share that post on your Facebook news feed, the post will appear like this to your friends:

My Amazing Hotel Room Matchurl And, if they click on the link they will be taken to a page with a unique address such  This page will only display to their friends who also read your blog posts. It will not appear on the web at all for anyone who does not have your friend's Facebook news feed open while they are reading your post. Another example: Let's say you have a website which sells T-shirts. You sell a certain style of T-shirt in a certain color. And, you have another style of T-shirt in another color.

Take the case of blue and green. Now, suppose you write a post on your website about your latest product and you share that post on your Facebook news feed. Here is what will happen: When your post is shared on Facebook, a shortened URL will be created for that particular post. This  shortened URL will be unique for that particular post. For example, it might look like this:product-name- Where  is a 13 digit alphanumeric code. And, what will happen next is, all your friends who read your post on Facebook will receive a notification from their Facebook news feed that there is a new website post to read.

In the end, if you have a lot of friends, you may get hundreds of notifications like this one from each of your friends on their news feeds. Once they click on the link, they will be taken to a page with the unique 13 digit alphanumeric code. This page will only appear to them on Facebook but not on the web at all. And, what is more interesting about this is that the page will appear in a different color than your regular website pages. And, when people read the contents of the page, they will find that it is actually a T-shirt. You can use any number of codes for this and you can use them on any of the social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. And, you do not have to write the codes yourself. There are many short URL services that allow you to create custom codes and even make short URLs that automatically display special messages when someone clicks on them. Some of these services include Bitly, Matchurl, and goo.gl.
