I just found a cool script that allows you to create your own short urls. And you can create them with whatever you want in the url! The script is called yourls, and its a breeze to use. What I liked is the ability to create custom URLs and to track clicks on them. Now I can double check if traffic is really going where I want it to! It even includes some sample files to start your own URL shortening service. Not a bad way to advertise yourself! Anyhow I thought some of you might benefit from them, the url is www.yourls.org. And i am in zero way connected with them!
