Title: gURL / What is a btfy?

A short article explaining what a .me link is, and how it works

gURL is a website that allows you to create short links with privacy in mind. You can choose exactly how long your link is, and only YOU will know the .me address - it won't be generated and stored forever on some external server by another entity.

We're not the first ones to come up with this idea of course - we were inspired by bitly and ow.ly , who both offer their users great services that we wanted to give our users as well. Give us a chance, and if you like what we do, consider telling your friends about gURL! [ARTICLE BLURB HERE WITHOUT TAGS...] <----- You can't see it because your ad-blocker hides the tag somehow..

An introduction to what gURL is, and what the website offers.

gURL is a website that allows you to create short links with privacy in mind. You can choose exactly how long your link is, and only YOU will know the .me address - it won't be generated and stored forever on some external server by another entity.

The code for this project is available on github:  https://github.com/btfy/gurl-redirector The links to the live version of the script are available in the 'Services' section on our site ( http://btfy.me/ ) - they're currently still under testing, so they might go up and down occasionally. We have completed implementing the redirect functionality, so users should be able to use btfy links without any trouble now, but we are still working on making sure everything works perfectly before announcing it outside our testbed. If you would like to help us out in testing services or just hang out with us when nobody else is around, join our IRC channel: irc://irc.freenode.net/btfy Thanks for reading, and we hope you'll enjoy using btfy - please let us know if you have any problems or suggestions

The way this works is that the first instance of the article contains tags for both "Btfy" <-- the name of the service , and "btfy" <-- the shortener . Each time this article is loaded, it checks to see which services are available by checking each tag against a list. This means that if gURL goes down, all sites will simply stop working until someone figures out what's wrong with gURL (which could take some time). This wouldn't be a good situation for our users, so we only inform the user that gURL is not available in one place - at the very top of the article.

This approach doesn't require any JavaScript to be loaded from other sites - it works entirely on your browser. The code required to accomplish this feat is rather simple: We have found that when you add "ad-blocker" tags to articles, they load much faster and use less memory. This means pages take less time and consume less data (if you're on mobile). You can thank us later! If you would like to help support this project and others like it (at absolutely no cost to yourself), we recommend installing an ad blocker extension such as uBlock Origin .
