    Link Shortening Service

    Shorten Your Links! MyLinks
    - mlnks.com -

    Let's say you're posting a link in your MySpace status, tweeting it, or even embedding it in an SMS - but you're limited to a certain number of characters. What do you do? Let's imagine you have a pretty long URL such as "http://www.runningonlinebusiness.com/" - that alone is 36 characters long! Using mlnks.com we can transform that to a measly 18 characters: http://mlnks.com/b

    The result? A shorter link that's much easier to remember and more user-friendly.
    You can also use the service to mask things like your affiliate or clickbank ID.

    There are two options when working with mlinks.com:
    1. Shorten with a custom alias
    2. Shorten without a custom alias

    A custom alias is simply where you pick the ending of the URL.
    Such as: mlnks.com/kovich


    We'll take my NB Profile Page as another example, but this time using a custom alias:
    http://www.netbuilders.org/netbuilders/kovich.html | We run it through mlnks.com and get: http://mlnks.com/kovich - which went from 50 characters to only 23!


    Still not convenient enough for you?
    We offer two other awesome features:

    1. Browser Bookmarks - commands that you can add to your bookmarks toolbar that allow you to create a short link for the page you're on! No copying or pasting required!
    2. Clean and Minimalistic Site Layout - no fancy graphics or distractions. Get straight to the point of creating your link without having to wait.

    So go ahead and give mlnks.com a try - you won't regret it!

    Looks cool! What about adding statistics to the short URL's? So you can track how many clicks it received?

    Greetz!

    Well, Aquarezz - sorry for the delay in replying, but I am working on a statistics feature for the URLs, which will hopefully make the service a whole lot better!
