Google URL Shortener

Google recently released its own URL shortening service “” URL shortening is an essential tool used in social media marketing on site like Facebook twitter and many more. All though the market is already saturated with many URL shortening services, Google manged to add a few bells and whistles to set them selves apart from the competition. Here are just a few

1. Goo.glprotectes against malware, phishing and spam.

2. You’ll be able to see data on all the links you’ve ever created and shared, right there in one place.

3. If you’re interested in another person’s shortened link, you can view that data too, just by typing “.info” after the shortened URL, even if you don’t have a Google account.

I have started testing it on some of Web Video Solutions blog syndication’s. Check back for reviews on how I think Google’s new service compares to its competitors.
