What are the benefits of URL shortening?

1 answer

A key benefit of shortening a URL is to make the URL easier to share and track.

URL Shortening is convenient for any of the reasons why a friendly URL may be desired, such as for messaging services that limit the number of characters in a message (for example, SMS), for reducing the amount of typing required if the reader is copying a URL from a print source, for making it easier for a person to remember, or for the intention of a permalink. Other uses of URL shortening are to "beautify" a link, track clicks, or disguise the underlying address.
