    I have never really used any URL shortening services before so was wondering, how long do they last?

    I'm not going to be spamming the links, just using them, maybe 10-20 clicks per day, I just would prefer not to use any of my own domains but also do not want the links to expire :)

    It says on the site that they never expire. I once saw a link from 2005, and it was still working, so I believe it :)

    Supposedly they don't expire and I've got a few I'm using for over a year but all things net are always evolving.

    Firefox has a nifty extension to make tinyurls with a click or 2.
