URL Link Shortener - Helps with that 8000 character limit

Recommended Posts

Vinyl Lady Decals

Hi Everyone

 

I'm sure we all get a little frustrated at times when we go over the 8000 character limit, but still want to add plenty of graphics/photos into the listing.

 

I have found a very handy little gadget that cuts those URL's (links for pictures, etc) to about 25% of the length they normally are.

 

Once you have uploaded your graphic/photo, copy and paste the link that is created into this webpage and click shorten.

It then gives you a nice short link that you copy and paste back over the link you originally copied and you will have the same graphic/photo, but a lot less code.

 

Here you go: http://goo.gl/

 

I hope you all find this as helpful as I have.:wub:

Its a pleasure, anything to make the lives of seller's easier.

 

Here's an example of a listing that I used these short URL's on:

Home & Garden - 3 Great Garden Books on CD + 1000 Free Ebooks - Garden, Hobbies for sale in Durban (ID:55114072)

 

All the graphics on this listing have short URL's and it allowed me to get in a lot more info for the buyers.
