    Hi! I've decided to create my own shortening service and now I have http://short4.me online!

    I'd like some advices on How to promote this service. I have already started Twittering on my profiles using this new shorten url.

    Any help appreciated! Thanks!

    many possibilities here.
    1.use xrumer to advertise this service on millions of forums worldwide
    2.set up an autoblog that ranks highly for a term similar to "link cloaking" or something.
    3.use youtube vids
    thats about all I can think of

    I thinks its way too competitive to run such a service.

    So you guys think It was a shot in the dark?
    Useless thing. Money spent to no money back?

    By the way, I'd try doing a good catching layout and monetize it with adsense.... also upgrading the script...
