    I don't know if any of you have heard or seen but Google has put out their own URL Shortening website. What are the thoughts of you BHW members?

    Cool, but not news. this popped up here a few days ago.

    My thoughts on it?

    Well. it´s a url shortener. it shortens urls like it should. And gives you statistics so it´s kinda cool.

    People have been using bit.ly and tinyurl for blackhat purposes and now the big G has released this. It's 301 permanent redirect so in theory it could rock but I wouldn't go near it.
