QR Codes, URL Shorteners, and Google… Oh My!

URL shortening services bit.ly and goog.gl definitely come in handy, but what you may not know is that they also offer QR code generation, automatically directing users to shortened links.

By simply visiting one of the aforementioned sites, entering a URL, clicking shorten, and adding .qr to the end of the link, you can have a qr code that can be printed or posted for all to scan!

Since Google is such a big proponent of QR codes, its no surprise that they now offer this service. Check out the QR code below that I created in seconds using goog.gl
