Quick Info

Gkurl.us is a Social URL Shortener that offers shortening, stats and an API.

Popular links are based on submissions. For example, you can submit a link:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=33.420%C2%B0N,+116.489%C2%B0W&ie=UTF8&ll=33.214563,-116.30127&spn=0.923734,1.783905&t=h&z=10&iwloc=near

And it will generate a 'short' link.

This makes it much easier to send in a message to someone else, whether it be on Facebook, Twitter, or Instant Message. The links then appear in the Popular section, to be viewed by others.
