    Hey Guys, I just came across it today. I never knew Google has started themselves a Url Shortener service similar too bit.ly

    Check out. Its cool. They have click tracking options too.

    Code:
    http://goo.gl/
    I guess it works better than bit.ly in terms of loading landing page. Check out.

    These days bit.ly shows error message and they have made spam protection much more strict. I guess this Google Url Shortener service will be a great alternative to others.

    Share your thoughts guys.

    That is correct. Doesn't work with clickbank links. I only use them with my feedburner account to auto post blogposts on twitter.

    Google profiles users and collects data from multiple points in an effort to do this. I personally have no desire to give Google any additional information then they already have. With so many URL shorteners around, there is no need to use goo.gl.

    I used to make use of Tweetburner because it allowed you to track how plenty of people clicked on each link &, because it worked fine, I seldom looked at any other url-shortening services. But it wasn't always reliable, & then it disappeared for some time so I had to go search for a new that would track clicks. Now I juse cli.gs & I am liking it. The thing I wish it had is details about each that clicked the link--specifically, what their Twitter ids are. Sounds like Trim & Bit.ly offer this--I'll must check them out.

    Great - I would like Google to know more about my business, where my traffic is coming from and where my links are (would I F£$% ?!)
    And if Bit.ly are cutting down on spam - why would you thing Google wouldn't be TWICE as hard on spam? Of course they will.

    That's cool... I might use it if I'm posting somewhere that has banned bit.ly, TinyURL, and all the other common ones, but you shouldn't come to totally depend on anything by Google. You never know when they'll ditch it, or start charging you for it.

    I have my own affiliate platform and 16 affiliates. I sent them an email a week ago about my recommendations to use goo.gl service to cloak links. Did I do something wrong?
