How to Shorten a URL#matchurl

30.Jun.2021

hey guys welcome back to my channel in
today's video I'm gonna show you how to
make a shortened URL for a longer link
that you might want to share with people
on the internet for me personally I just
want to create a shortened link in order
for people to be able to subscribe to my
YouTube channel and I've been doing
research so I thought might as well make
a video about it there's a couple
websites that allow you to do this and 
they're all basically the same thing
the first one is tiny URL nothing
against it but its website just seems
very basic the next one is Oh W dot ly
and I don't know much about this I don't
see many people using their links so I
would rather just pass on it the next
one is goo GL this is Google however I
was gonna use this because YouTube is a
Google product but it says right here on
March 30th 2008 we turned down support
for goo GL URL shortener and they just
tell people you should go to bit ly the
reason why they shut this down is
because they started doing something
called firebase dynamic links however I
tried figuring this out and it's just
too advanced this is more for for
example web developers who want to
create links that will then open an app
for you and take you to maybe like a
payment page so the best option for just
creating a simple shortened URL is the
website bit ly com
and we're gonna set up a count and I'm
just gonna show you how to make a
shortened link that you can then you
know put on your your website or your
YouTube channel alright first I'm going
to sign up and there is a basic payment
option $29 a month and it shows you what
you get for that $29 a month if you just
want once again a simple URL shortened
then you can go with the free option it
does give you the option to sign up with
Google which is what I'm gonna do okay
I'm logged into bit ly through my Google
account and then I'm gonna select create
new bit ly account okay over here it
says create your first link now I'm
going to select just for example my
youtube channel and command copy and
then over here paste
long URL command-v I guess it's possible
to customize the back half of my link to
make them more memorable or meaningful
I'm not gonna do that at the moment okay
I got it I can add a title for example
Jake bro youtube channel and then save
alright there it is that is the
shortened URL for my youtube channel now
I can select copy and then if I want to
paste this into a new browser I can just
go ctrl V that is the shortened URL hit
enter and my YouTube page loads
fantastic that's exactly what I wanted
