What are Friendly Links?

Friendly Links are a game changer when you need to copy and paste a url (aka link) from , for example: a product you are promoting, or a link to a page you want to show your readers.

How do Friendly Links work

The really long url isn’t usually easy to read and if you wan to make it easy to read you need to follow a few steps which equate to extra clicks and time:

  • you need to copy the URL
  • navigate to the page you are going to paste it into
  • Type the words you want to equate with the link
  • highlight the name
  • click a link icon and then paste the full url.

With a Friendly Link you can save a lot of time copying/pasting.

The process would look like this:

  • you need to copy the URL
  • navigate to the page you are going to paste it into
  • Paste the link

That’s it, so easy.  Check out the video for a demonstration of how this works and how to enable it in your Microsoft Edge browser.
