How to shorten pesky long URL’s…

Google URL Shortener

Google URL Shortener

Ever wonder how those weird little short urls get created????  http://goog.Akrl??

Let’s say I take the following URL (a search on ‘Cows are Awesome’):

(http://www.google.com/#hl=en&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=Cows+are+awesome&oq=Cows+are+awesome&gs_l=hp.3..0j0i30.1147.3418.0.3865.16.12.0.3.3.2.328.2399.0j8j3j1.12.0.les%3B..0.0…1c.1.5.psy-ab.Ql4zEk0dqXk&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.43148975,d.dmg&fp=a0fc57285ec9fcf0&biw=1355&bih=596)

 

I plug it into the Google URL shortener function and it draws up this:  http://goo.gl/AkfAk

This is so nice if you have presentations and need to use hyperlinks.  Thought this might be of use!
