Google now has a quick tool to shorten web addresses. Go to http://goo.gl/ and 1) enter the website address, 2) press “Shorten” and 3) copy new web address from the right of the “Shorten” button. This tool is great for condensing very long web addresses you want send in emails that just don’t fit. It can also be used in blog posts, social network posts, and anywhere else you might need a condensed posting. Note: We used the shortener in the post below for our Google Maps page.
