Speedlink V15/2011, URL Shorteners, Blogging, SEO, Social Web

speedlink 15

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great and productive week. Unfortunately can’t say that my week was that productive as my internet connection was not cooperating very well, due to an upgrade in services I requested. In addition, my favorite Twitter App (Hootsuite) is not working properly, this after upgrading my browser to version 3.6.17 of FireFox. Apparently, Hootsuite has an issue with this FF version and all I know is that they are working on a fix for it (hopefully soon). If you are experiencing the same problem, now you know 🙂

As usual, in no particular order:

I’m surprised URL shorteners are still as alive as they are. So many people hate using them for the obvious fact of not seeing what’s behind it first.

So true Dennis, and this is why my favorite Twitter app is Hootsuite. Hootsuite allows me to see the original source of the link first, thus knowing at the very least where it is taking me. Obviously I only do this from people I don’t know very well 🙂 I guess Matt can not undervalue too much shorteners because Google has their own, so it is somewhat surprising actually.

Google not only not caring about hidden links, but producing them themselves…irony?

Hi Gary. LOL, I hear you. There are just so many great info out there that it is very difficult to narrow them down to my top picks. Obviously there are more, but these should be enough or I will create an “information overload”, haha. Thanks for stopping by

Hi Patricia. You are welcome as always thanks for stopping by. As far as the links are concerned, yeah, without doubt I always want to know where it taking me. Had a bad experience before about it and all kinds of weird things happened. Lesson to be learned.

Hi DiTesco – Thanks for linking to the Facebook send button article! I updated it because the original plugin I was using added the send capability.

Thanks for vid about URL shorteners and 301 redirects!
