This tool currently runs through my old mathstatic.co.nz website. At some stage I’ll move it onto this statistics-is-awesome.org website 🙂

This tool is similar to the wide range of URL shorteners out there e.g. goo.gl, tiny.cc, bit.ly etc., except that the shortened URL will send you to one of two links at random. I couldn’t find anything like this out there when I searched (but I may have been using the wrong search words!) which is why I set up this tool.

It is useful in particular for online experiments, where you want to send participants to one of two different pages (e.g. a Google survey) without them necessarily being aware of this randomisation process.

To setup the URL, head to http://mathstatic.co.nz/auto and follow the instructions on the page.
