123I thought of writing an article about URL shortening services and some great websites that offer you to supress the lengthy url’s. Suddenly this great update reached me today and i made to write with this first. The aim of URL shortening is to eliminate the lengthy url’s being shared in the chat, email or via social networking sites. Usually bloggers use such URL shortening services to avoid the lengthy links in the blog or while referring their friends to their blog. Ofcourse, people always happy to visit url’s if it’s shorter and have some unique name relevant to the link after the actual domain name. I have said enough about Stumbleupon.com, one of the famous social bookmarking website few days back in an article. The SU have launched a new service very recently, that helps the internet users to shorten their lengthy web addresses to make it much easier in sharing with their friends and relatives.

Stumbleupon already have 8 million users and still counting for its bookmarking service. This new announcement really makes bloggers like me happier to say good bye to Tinyurl sort of services and to begin with su.pr . Just a 2 letter domain name thats easy to remember.

The tricky part in this is, you must get an invite code to register with this service. And limited number of invitations provided by stumbleupon, to its Twitter followers in its profile (Click the link). So follow SU in twitter to get the invite code to proceed with the registration process.

If you use your posts to be compressed then SU will get updated with the latest su.pr url’s and let the 8 million users know about it through its homepage. sounds very interesting isnt it ?. So grab your invitation code and start stumbpress your blog url’s.

So your twitter and facebook friends will let to know about your recent updates with your blog. The total number of visits made to the supressed url, number of stumbles made to a specific su.pr url and finally the followers inside su.pr shown in the right side of the member area.
