How To: Make innocent URLs appear suspicious with ShadyURL

Make innocent URLs appear suspicious with ShadyURL

Want to disguise your URLs so that they appear suspicious? In the style of websites such as Tiny URL that take your original URL and give you a shortened one to post on your blog or twitter feed, Shady URL takes your original URL and gives you one that might convince people not to click it. Go to Shady URL and paste the URL you wish to disguise. Click submit, and on the next page it will give you a URL that looks, well, shady. It might include something about a mail order bride or an investment opportunity, often ending in .info. This is a funny way to prank your friends without actually causing any harm.
