Yahoo is Closing Down its URL Shortener Tomorrow

Yahoo is going to shut down its URL shortening service tomorrow. Yahoo announced today that the YQL powered y.ahoo.it URL Shortener will be shut down on Wednesday (November 20th). "A URL shortening service is not one of Yahoo!’s core competencies for supporting our users’ Daily Habits," according to a blog post from the company.

Users of Yahoo URL Shortener will have to find better alternatives starting from November 20th. They will not be able to create short URLs using either the form at http://y.ahoo.it or on the yahoo.y.ahoo.it YQL table available on the YQL console. This page will redirect users to Yahoo's home page from tomorrow onwards. But Yahoo said that the short links that have been created will continue to be redirected to their sources. 

However, this service availability can also be terminated in the future. That is due to the fact that Yahoo also claims that it can make further changes to the service in the times that are yet to come. Nevertheless, the company will give at least three months prior notice to its service users before making any further changes.
