Amazon product links can be very long and spammy looking. If you are trying to share an Amazon link with someone or bookmark it, you will notice that there is a lot of fluff and miscellaneous code, most of which is used for different kinds of tracking. You can get rid of all this unnecessary stuff from the product link.

Example of Amazon Product URL

An example of an Amazon product link is this:,aps,83&sr=8-6&th=1&linkCode=sl1&tag=amazon-20&linkId=11036591996443881804e040e7a6e89f&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl

This is 280 characters in size! Much more than

Third-party URL shorteners

There are third-party URL shortener services like and others that are short in size and redirect to these longer URLs.

All you have to do is sign up for these services, enter the long URL and you get a shorter URL that you can use. Unfortunately, the shorter URL will not contain the domain in itself.

There is nothing wrong in using these, but if you want the original posted URL to contain the domain name, it adds a sense of legitimacy to your blog post that contains it.

Or if you are emailing or texting someone a link to a third-party URL shortener service, it may be misinterpreted as spam. I would definitely not click on a or or link sent to me.
