Bit.ly

Bit.lyBit.ly is a website that allows you to shorten URL or website links.  Simply copy and paste a long or unwieldy link into the white text box at the top and click on the Shorten button.  If you sign up for a free account, you can do even more with Bit.ly like keep track of all of the links that you have shortened, add notes to links (so you can remember why you wanted to send people to a particular link to begin with), and curate “bundles” or a collection of links on your own or collaboratively with others.  You can even see statistics on how many people have clicked on or viewed your shortened links and customize their URLs.
