We do our best to make sure all the links we generate are safe. If you do happen to be forwarded to a Linking You address which is unsafe, please let us know so we can investigate, and protect future vistors of the URL.
Please enter the address segment of the url (anything after the forward slash from the Linking You address):
Linking You is a free URL minifying service developed by The University of Lincoln. Use it to generate minfied URLs for your dissertation, for putting on documentation or just for sharing links on social media websites.
Linking You makes large URL's into small, easy to use URL's. So instead of long URL's, such as:
you can instead use short and snappy URL, like:
Shorter addresses are easier and quicker to type,read, and remember.
Previously, Linking You was available for anyone to use, but due to misuse, we have decided to provide this service to our students and staff at the university only.
Yes you can! Just sign in, and if you have any, we will show them to you.
Linking You checks all URLs against Google's Safe Browsing service to make sure they are safe. If Google states the URL is unsafe, we will not direct anyone to the original web address. We will also not generate a minified URL for an unsafe URL.
We just make sure the URL is safe, minify, and save it. When someone clicks the minified link, we find the original URL and send the user on their way.
These links will be around for the foreseeable future.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do!
