Look.fo – Simplify Linking To Google Searches

Everybody hates having to copy and paste a link to a Google search? The URLs are often so long, that you can’t cut and paste the whole thing. If you’re having that problem, you should see the simple solution provided by Look.fo. With this site, you’ll be able to create simple links to Google search results, which are much easier to share through any IM client or Twitter. Now, when you want to share a Google search, you can tell your friends to just look.fo/(search keywords). I’ve been trying it out for sometime and it makes sharing Google searches a lot simpler.

This is one of those sites that seem so simple yet they’re very useful. You’ll be quickly drawn in to the site’s simplicity and high usefulness factor. When in doubt, just “Look Fo It”.

Features:
* Get short links for Google search results.
* Create as many short links as you like.
* No sign-up needed.

look-foI tried Look.fo out with something easy like “TheTechTalker” and the site performed well.  It quickly formed the URL (http://look.fo/thetechtalker) and the Google search results it returned were accurate enough for me to justify sending that to someone who wants to know more about TheTechTalker.com.

Similarly use http://look.fo/microsoft for search results of ‘Microsoft’. Also, for specific Youtube, Wikipedia and Dictionary Definitions searches:

* For Youtube searches, http://look.fo/youtube-queen
* For Wikipedia entries, http://look.fo/wiki-blogging
* For Dictionary definitions, http://look.fo/define-freaky

Checkout Look.fo for easy sharing of Google Search result URLs. Something different or one should say – a twist in usual URL snipping service!

      I just feel that Look.fo has a cleaner web interface and does give a search page too.
