What is a URL Shortener?

A URL Shortener allows you to take a long URL like http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pitch-Perfect-Blu-ray-Digital-Copy/dp/B008YV11JQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1399448718&sr=1-2&keywords=pitch+perfect and turn it into something like http://ziz.im/llB2m2.

What is an alias?

Zizim gives you the option to set an alias for your short url. Essentially, this means you can set what comes after our URL (if it isn't already in use). e.g. http://ziz.im/customalias. If one isn't provided, we'll generate you one of our own.

Why are they useful?

URL Shortening services are useful, because they allow you to monitor the number of people who visit your link. Zizim will be making the tracking aspect of the service public in the very near future, it's currently under development.
