I am drawing a blank!  What is the tag called in Meta Tags that allows a shorter url?    

For example:

You probably want mod-rewrite; it's not a meta tag but it is commonly used to make memorable URLs.  There are other meta tags that might be useful to you, including <link rel="canonical" /> and there is <base href="..." />.  There are URL shortening services, like bit.ly, too.
