    They aren't links, they're redirects. They can still pass link juice though I personally don't consider them "high PR links". You can check which type of redirect it is by using:

    Only 301 redirects will pass juice, so if you see any other type it probably isn't doing you any good.

    They are High PR links if he is only using bit.ly and goo.gl because they have been 301 redirected to your website. They pass the link juice, don't need to worry.

    No, they are no follow. Use only goo.gl instead for better SEO benefit.

    How would you use them? Just build a lot of bit.ly for example links or build links to your shortlinks?
