Google Short URLsYou are chatting with a friend who needs help in framing a Google search query that  returns more relevant web pages in the search results.

You could go to Google, type the appropriate search  keywords and then  send him the corresponding Google search URL. You may also want to use TinyURL  because long Googlesearch URLs can break when shared  via email or through IM messages.

If  this is something you do frequently,  try Gog.is – it’s a URL shortening service  but limited to Google search   queries.  Just add the keyword after the gog.is domain and  that URL will automatically redirect you to the corresponding Google Search Page.

For instance, the short URL http://gog.is/india redirects to the longer Google query string http://www.google.com/search?q=india. For compound search queries, you can use either a comma (,) or a plus sign (+) to separate the keywords – so both gog.is/digital,inspiration and gog.is/digital+inspiration would point to the same search page on Google.

For Twitter, gog.is may be a better alternative to tinyurl for sharing Google URLs as what’s on the target page becomes obvious from the URL itself so no embarrassing situations.
