    Just to let everyone be aware that goo.gl isn't safe for mass BH.

    it also happens to bit.ly. Best is to use your own URL shortener.

    Agreed, it's the only way to do it. Gotta have your own URL Shortener if you think you're going to need one.

    Most important thing is to make sure you've got control over your links instead of leaving them in someone else's hands.

    Yeah I've noticed goo.gl disables all my links, and bitly disables clickbank links, works for my CPA though. Never heard of isgd.
    Also, sexyurl works well, and you can make money off of it.

    Since when Google's services are not safe for mass BH? :D

    For best results you should spam http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/ with Scrapebox. It will give your autoblog a nice boost in the SERP.

    Yeah, I've had similar problems with bit.ly before. Just buy a .info and you'll be set, no more worrying anymore.

    I was using snipurl because you can re program the links.. very cool, but.. my clicks werent getting thru to destination so I tried editing the link.. it said it would not accept the changes as it was a link used in spam.. so someone had disabled the link..
    so fess up... which one of youse done this and why??

    Also anyone have any comments on BUDURL ??Any good? get banned ??

    Ok I have an update on this.. it seems the problem was when I wanted to re assign the url address, my SERVER is banned, ( 000webhost ) and it would not accept the hosting address.. so I had to upload my page to another site.. it accepted the url change ok and now points to the new address ok.. so Snip URL is good to go... also it has inbuilt ability to post your link to .. Facebook, Google, Stumble, Myspace, Twitter, Reddit,Technorati,Digg and Delicious... so far so good..
