hey everyone today I'm going to show you
the best free URL shortener that I found
on the Internet I've been using it for
years it's free it's easy to use and
it's called tiny URL you can make custom
URLs or use their standard ones but hey
 
if you're new here my name is Ken and
this is northern Viking every day we
bring videos on reviews and how to's so
make sure you click that subscribe
button so you don't miss out on any
upcoming videos but let's head on over
to my desktop and give you a quick 
tutorial of how to use it all right so I
got my browser loaded up here you can go
ahead and punch in tiny URL calm into
your browser and you're gonna end up at
this page a couple things I did want to
mention the first thing it does say here
is that these URLs will not break in
email posting so you can go ahead and
 
email these URLs they are gonna work
totally fine the other thing it says
here is these URLs never expire so all
of the URLs I made several years ago are
all still working and I've been really
happy with this company or this website
tiny URL so let's go ahead and do a
couple of examples for you we'll do a
standard example and then we'll do a
custom URL example as well so let's head
on over to Amazon I already searched for
this mouse it's actually a mouse I just
purchased so say I did want to share
this link with a friend and this big
long address here in the address bar is
 
really long so I'm gonna go ahead and
highlight that and I'm gonna copy it so
I can right click copy the shortcut on
Windows is ctrl C if you want to do that
and then we're gonna head back over to
tinyurl.com so you're gonna see there's
this little box here that's empty and it
says enter a long URL to make tiny so
we're just gonna paste that in there and
a piece that if you don't want to do
right click and paste you can do control
V on on a Windows PC as well and then
there's a little option here that says
make tiny URL so I'm gonna go ahead and
click on that and it's gonna go ahead
and it says tiny URL was created so
here's the big long URL the original one
and here's the tiny one right down below
 
and I could highlight that and copy it
or there's a little button here that
says copy to clipboard I'm just gonna
copy that and let's test it out to make
sure it works so we'll open a new tab
and a paste that in there
and just hit Enter and sure enough it
loads back up to that exact Amazon page
that I wanted to send off to my friends
so it works perfectly so that's an
awesome tool if you're wanting to send
shorter URLs to your friends now say I
want to grab let's head on over to my
website and I created a video of
cruising the Endicott arm and the Dawes
glacier but again this URL up here at
the top is fairly long it's not as long
as the Amazon one but it is still pretty
long and maybe we want to shorten that
so we can share it with some friends so
I'm gonna copy that again we're gonna
head back over to tiny URL and to get
back to the main screen just go ahead
and click on their logo here on the top
right or left hand corner and again
 
we're gonna paste that URL in here but
this time we're gonna make it custom so
we've got that main URL in here now
there's a little box right below that
that says custom alias we're gonna you
can see the first part of the URL is
there the tiny URL calm and we'll just
type in northern Viking Cruz so you
created a custom ending to your URL now
we can just go ahead and hit make tiny
URL so we're gonna do that and it says
tiny URL was created and it shows the
the original one here and right down
below it says what your new one is so
tiny URL calm northern Viking cruise and
then we can just copy that to the
clipboard again let's go test it out to
make sure it works so I'm gonna open up
a new tab and paste that in there and as
long as my web site is working yeah and
it worked perfectly so it loaded up
right to that page on my website so if
you do want to share that with your
friends or family or or anyone on social
media you can shorten down those URLs
 
quite simply so it's that simple to use
this free tool tinyurl.com and I've been
really happy with it so I hope this
video did help you out in shortening all
your URLs if it did make sure to give
