The Goo.gl Way to Create QR Codes

Google just released it’s own URL shortener to compete with Bit.ly. Goo.gl has most of the features that Bit.ly brings to the table, but has a couple of  extra features that I am very interested in.

  1. Along with creating very compact URL’s, Goo.gl also generates a QR code for every URL that you shorten. If you see a Goo.gl URL you want a QR code for, all you need to do is to add a “.qr” to the end of the URL, like magic a QR code will appear. If you are creating QR Code for a large number of web pages, this is going to be a real time saver.
  2. With Google putting it’s weight behind it’s own URL shortener, I have a lot more confidence that it is going to be around 2 or 3 years from now.

Enjoy!
