Trying to post on Craigslist is getting more and more difficult. As of November 25th, 2009, 2 of the most popular link shortening services, Bit.ly and tinyurl.com are now blacklisted. So I went out to find some new ones to see if I could find one that still works. . . and I did.
URL shortening services were initially popular because web addresses started to get long and links would break when sent in an email. However, as microblogging services like Twitter have become popular, an increasing number of services and applications, including tracking & metrics, have been added to the basic URL shortening features.
Thanks to TopRankBlog.com for this table of the best URL Link Shortening Services!
