Cisco "Go" links reference in the wiki

By stretch | Saturday, March 6, 2010 at 4:32 p.m. UTC

One of my (very) slow-paced background projects has been building a list of all the handy Cisco.com "go" links I come across. "Go" links are easily remembered shortcut links to various content throughout Cisco.com. For example, http://cisco.com/go/fn redirects to Cisco's feature navigator tool at http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/index.jsp. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find a master index of all "go" links, so I started the Cisco.com "go" links wiki article to record the ones I've found useful.

At the time of this writing, the article contains just a few dozen links; I invite readers to add any others they've found handy. However, please keep in mind that this isn't intended to be a master index by any means. Google says there are thousands of these links; the list in the wiki only needs the links most useful to engineers (e.g., no marketing links please).

cool idea. this is a good list. about google results, you can narrow it with this search:
I get 646 results - still many but much easier to deal with

@Ivan: Liked the idea, In a single shot we get all. @Jeremy: Please add a master index of technology also.

I've put together a small Perl script and was able to find 473 links by bruteforcing the service (ie. trying to access all possible combinations of letters and numbers). You can get the sourcecode, as well as all the links I found on my blog: http://hype-free.blogspot.com/2010/03/unshortifying-cisco-go-links.html
