Short URLs

    Hi Everyone

    When we publish a Hub, we are given two URLs - a regular one, and a short one.
    I have just set up a twitter account for promoting my website and my Hubs. How can I find out what the short URL is for my Hubs so that I can use it on my twitter feed? Is this even possible?

    Thank you,
    Bron smile

    I'd just click the share button and let Twitter automatically use the long URL. However, you can find the short URL at stats|overview when viewing each hub. smile

    When signed in, go to the hub. (Not in edit, just the normal hub.) Then click on 'Stats' in the black line at the top.

    In the 'Overview' section, you'll see 'Views' and 'Metrics'.  Beneath the Metrics heading you'll find the short url for that hub.

    I don't know about using it on your twitter feed though, but I guess you could. You'll have to wait for someone else to say for sure.

    You can also use any number of URL shorteners on the internet. Just Google it and you'll find at least a couple options.

    Or if you're using Hootsuite they have one built in.
