URLs

    I am trying to get some back links going, but I tend to use long titles for my hubs, which translates to long URLs.  Isn't there a short-version URL for each hub?  I'm pretty sure I've seen those when I've been in the process of publishing, but now I can't find them.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    There are two places I know of to get short versions:

    1. Visit the hub in normal mode and click 'stats' then go over to 'hub metrics' and it will be at the bottom.
    2. Click share at the bottom of the hub and click 'tweetthis' and you'll get taken to a twitter page with the short URL.

    URL shortening schemes tend to use 301 redirects, so while you are going to get the benefit of a link, its less effective than using the full url. I would advise you to use the natural URL whenever possible.

      Thank you Sir,

      I will take your advice, then proceed to educate myself as to what that all means.
