How To Know What Is Behind A Shortened Domain Url Without Visiting

I was actualy surfing the internet trying to find some research on important topics i needed, and i stumbled on this web page(to know whats behind a shortened URLs) which i am going to share today in this article.

Some time you may have come across short url on social media e.g some uses Google url shortener and the link may be something like this goo.gl/RAxiU1, or sometimes a friend may sent it to you as a message.

In either ways, let us just say that you are not sure of that link no matter where it comes from, and you want to find out what it is even without visiting because many people use this links to re-direct users to porn websites, which alot of individuals dont like(including me).

If you want to know what is behind that link, then your problem will be answered in this post.

We will need to visit a page which is GET LINK INFO PAGE after visiting that page input the shortened url, paste the “tiny”, “bit.ly” or whatever link on the box and click on “GET LINK INFO” after that it will load up the original link and you will know if it was exactly what the poster said it is.

Now you have known a way of checking out a shortened domain info. Was it helpful, let me know below or do you know of another way to check it?, it will be appreciated if you drop it in the comment box.
