Remove rel=shortlink from HTTP header

Have your ever wondered what is the use of “rel=shortlink” on header? 

The format of shortlink is very simple. It contains your domain name and page ID. The output looks like the following line.

				
					https://example.com/?p=ID
				
			

At this present world we like to use different short link services instead of the default WordPress shortlink system. Let me explain how easy it’s to remove rel=shortlink from HTTP header area for a WordPress website.
