URL shorteners are nothing new, Tiny URL has been around, but WP.me is different in a few ways: First if you’re a WordPress user, the dilemma ends here, as WordPress now’ve their own URL shortening service in the form of WP.me, and…:

  • WP.me’s the only two-letter .me domain in the world.
  • Every blog and post on WordPress.com has a WP.me URL now.
  • These’re all exposed in the <head> using rel=shortlink.
  • It doesn’t work for any URL in the world, just WP.com-hosted ones.
  • The links are permanent, they will work as long as WordPress.com is around.
  • WP.me is spam-free, because we are constantly monitoring and removing spam from WP.com.
