Tip #54: Why you should use the "long" URL.
When pasting links into our own posts or on other sites, commments, Facebook, etc., you may have used TinyURL or a similar service. TinyURL lets you copy in the possibly very long URL and make it "tiny".
However, sometimes, those "tiny" links will not get as many click throughs as a normal, long, original link because readers cannot tell what the source is, where the link will go. And with today's spam and spyware, many are hesitant to click on a link they don't know.
So for that reason, and to help improve SEO (as the long URL will contain your domain and possibly keyworkds in the title of the post or page you are linking to), copy and paste the entire, long URL.
