So what can you do with a shortened URL?

So what can you do with a shortened URL?

06.Oct.2021

1. You can click on the shortened URL.

2. You can copy and then paste it into your browser's address bar.

3. Or you can send it to a mobile device over text message or email.

4. But what exactly do the numbers mean? And why does one website's short URLs look so different than another site, like bitly vs tinyurl?

5. It turns out that there are four main types of shortened URLs: Secret-based, Tracking-based, Ad-based, and Custom-base .

Conclusion with a call to action: Just include "tinyurl" or "ur1" in front of any URL, and you'll end up here! TinyURL  is my favorite service because they have so many options for customization. Try it out on your own today!

Context: If you wanted to write an article about "url shorteners" and what they can be used for, the contents of this post would probably work well as your introduction. The first sentence works well as a hook because it mentions how convenient shortened URLs can be, and then immediately follows up by giving four examples (emails/resumes/text messages), which is good enough to explain why they're necessary. The second sentence explains that there are many different ways shortened URLs work; this could help people understand the differences between the options. And finally, mentioning TinyURL as your favorite shortener helps round out the piece with actual content for those unfamiliar with such services.

One possible downside is that the content is somewhat unorganized and difficult to follow. It's not very clear which paragraph or sentence goes with which number in the outline above, which can make it difficult to read. This would be a good time to use headings (even if you aren't using HTML) to split up each section into smaller chunks of information. Another candidate for improvement might be the conclusion; while the final sentence after "Thank you" is nice, in order to tie in better with an introductory paragraph it could perhaps quote someone saying how useful URL shortening services are, or maybe even include another example of when they might come in handy? For example:

Context: If the introduction was basically what you wanted to say, this quote would be a good way to expand on the topic and give an example of how readers might use shortened URLs. If the introduction went deeper into what they are/their history, you could perhaps mention that here as well.
