Into a Tiny URL[19 characters] http://tiny.cc/map3
The Tiny URL is easier to memorize or use where space is limited such as text messages, chat (instant messaging), or email signatures. A Tiny URL is perfect for:
Use on Twitter
Create QR Codes
Shorten YouTube addresses
Shorten Ebay auction pages
Shorten and share Amazon pages
Post on blogs, forums or message boards.
Share addresses through email and not worry about the links wrapping or breaking. Ideal for ebooks, online magazines, newspapers and journals. Archival uses in schools and universities. Use in QR codes to create a simpler code and lower dpi for printed versions. Tiny can make your address short, plus meaningful - create a "custom URL" that is personal and unique!

Track banner Ads for internet marketing
Text or Banner Ad
Merchant's web site
An Ad is a piece of html code that includes a URL to refer the visitor to a merchants's web site. Convert it into a Tiny URL and replace it in the Ad's html code. When clicked it works behind the scenes to gather stats and redirect visitors to your seller's landing page or web site. This allows you to track Ads by viewing statistics related to user clicks.
Campaign Tracking: convert referrer or affiliate URLs into tiny's and use on Ads, emails, hyperlinks and track their success.
Action Tracking: convert action links (form submissions, signups, opt-ins, survey or checkout completions) into tiny's so you know which entry pages attract the most visitors and which pages are converting them. Test ad variations, ad copy or search terms.
