You can use a different URL scheme for each type of content you share. A lot of companies use branded URLs like social.example.com/_short-url . That's okay, but it's not all that informative. If the URL is being shared, the context is already social. The word "social" doesn't add any information that isn't already known.

How to create a short link using Google URL Shortener API Step 1: Go to the Google APIs Console and create a new project. In this article, I will be creating an app named "URLShorten" . After the project is created, enable billing for your app. You will have to click on "Select a project" drop down menu next to "Google Cloud Platform" logo in the upper left corner of the screen and select your newly created project from there. Note: Enable Billing for App Engine Project Step 2: Create a file named Procfile at the root directory of your app with following contents [APP_ENGINE_API_NAME = [YOUR_PROJECT_]] [hostname] [and] [PORT = 8080] hostname = appengine.google.com app engine opens the framework for web development. The framework is based on python language or java programming language with some restrictions imposed by app engine which will be discussed later in this article. In your Procfile, you need to edit the second line as per your application name and port number of your choice. Step 3: Create a file named appengine-web.xml at the root directory of your app with following contents In this file, you have configure handler for URL shortening service and specify that it should use HTTPS protocol and save all requests into a compressed format (gzip) . You also need to mention that this service must run on a particular port.   Step 4: Create a file named appengine-web.xml at the root directory of your app with following contents In this file, you have configure handler for URL shortening service and specify that it should use HTTPS protocol and save all requests into a compressed format (gzip).

Best Use branded URLs # matchurl

Best Use branded URLs # matchurl

14.Sep.2021
When you share content online, it's important to use a URL shortener. It's also important to brand the shortened URLs with your own unique brand identity. Without branding, you're extending the benefits of the URL shortener that you're using (bit.ly/ or adf.ly/). Those are good shorteners; what they do is make long links fit in status messages and tweets without breaking them up into multiple lines, which can be annoying if not downright impossible for some people to read. They also provide click analytics like how many times (and when) that particular link was clicked, but that is secondary to the primary purpose of making URLs more readable in any medium where space is limited (like Twitter).
