What are Tiny URL's?  Basically, the word tiny means small.  The meaning of a URL is basically another name for a website address.  A more formal way to describe a URL is, "A Uniform Resource Locator, colloquially termed a web address, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier, although many people use the two terms interchangeably. URLs occur most commonly to reference web pages, but are also used for file transfer, email, database access, and many other applications."

If you are making a URL (website address) smaller, it will help you make better use of character limitations on websites such as Twitter or other social media websites that have limits to the number of letters or numbers you can include in your messages.

Making the URL's smaller allows you to fit more meaningful text in your message and not waste to many characters on the actual website address you include with the message.

Tiny URLs are easier to post on fashion blogs or fashion forums. You can also use them to make email friendly URLs. Simplify links to your website. Hide an affiliate link (fashion affiliate programs). Create personal or unique addresses using a keyword.

Here is an example of a LONG website address:
https://www.apparelsearch.com/fashion/designer/name/g/giorgio_armani/
Giorgio_armani_fashion_designer_news_photos_video.htm

Here is an example of a link to the same page in the form of a SMALLER website page address:

http://bit.ly/giorgio_armani

Bitly is a URL shortening service and a link management platform. The company Bitly, Inc. was established in 2008. It is privately held and based in New York City. Bitly shortens 600 million links per month, for use in social networking, SMS, and email.

If you write a fashion blog or have a fashion website and you wish to provide your viewers with information regarding a particular subject, you may want to use one of the shortened urls from below.  You can use these in your blog and the links will take viewers to pages that have information regarding the subject in the link address.  For example, if your blog is regarding designer handbags, you can possibly use the shortened link to "designer handbags".
