At least that is true when it comes to your web site address.
Have you ever joined one of many affiliate programs that creates a web site address, URL, for you to promote them that is longer than even best stretch limousine in town?
Even though all you have to do is click on it to get to where you want to be, when a URL looks like it is two blocks long, it takes away from message of your ad copy.
