    I want to do shorten about 500 links, but if they go bad in like a week or whatever... and I have to go back and do it all again.... :06:

    i have a few from Dec last year, they're still active, however for some reason i can't see the stats in my Google account anymore, the redirecting is still working tho
    edit: lol, i can see them now with turned off Adblock Plus :)

    and this is from Goo.gl's help page:

    "Features

    Goo.gl short URLs are randomly generated, and the mappings of short URLs to long URLs are publicly accessible. Additionally, the short URL to long URL mappings are:
    * Immutable - once created by you, no one else can change them
    * Irrevocable - once created, they do not expire. Note, however, that Google reserves the right to remove any goo.gl short URL, for example for spam, security or legal reasons"
