Friendly URLs for Linking to Google Search Results
When searching for something using Google, you will notice that the URL of the results page is extremely long, unfriendly and filled with all kind of random characters. These long URLs that Google generates are done for tracking purposes but it makes it awkward to link to because people don’t want to have to click on a URL the length of three football fields just to see some simple search results. I have found an easy way to link to Google search results. Simply type the URL:
and replace the text “keywords” with whatever you want the search results to show. This URL will give you the same search results but will be 1/10th of the length.
