Shorten Your Web-links – Free and Easy

Summary of Service

is.gd
notlong
urlcut
urlms

Blocking of Shortened URLs:
All is not perfect with using such shortening services as some websites may prevent shortened and/or redirected URLs from being posted. Sometimes is is because the application has its own shortening device such as Twitter when it replaced TinyURL with Bit.ly as its default shortener for users in 2009. Other sites and services may block such shortening services to prevent or reduce SPAM and online viruses as the shortened link may “hide” some of the otherwise noticeable clues that something ‘is a muck’…
