Shorten Amazon Affiliate Links

Amazon is one of the largest online store where you can find variety of products to promote as an affiliate. If you are a blogger, you can see how I use product links in the blog. Amazon links are lengthy and you may not feel great about  them at all.  You will see similar as following:

You can shorten the links in many ways. You can manually shorten the link by grabbing ASIN code (it is in the product page where you can easily find it) of the product but my advice is to use shorten URL with amzn.to which is provided by Amazon itself and it is easy to use.
