This article is not fresh news, but perhaps you have not known about it. The topic we are going to discuss is about shortening the Link Address. Why must we change the link address? Of course, not all of the link must be changed, but sometimes we will need to change it, for example, when the link is an affiliate link.
Many bloggers join the affiliate program and they want to get many down liners, but it becomes phenomenal that the visitors do not expect to click a link with affiliate program, the visitors always see the bar status of their browsers when mouse over a link, and if the link includes an ID, the visitors will not click the link.
One of the ways to hide the original link, you can change it by using the service from TinyUrl.com.
For example, if I have the affiliate link as follow:
and I do not want the visitors see the link, and then I will change it like this:
