Google has recently launched its URL shortener service Goo.gl and it has got a lot of coverage. I was just doing to catching up with some blog reading and I found that it is full of excited praise for Goo.gl.
Goo.gl URL shortener should be quite a big thing, considering Google is big fish on the Internet. But currently it can be only used by using Google Toolbar if you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox. It also has support through an extension which can be installed on Chrome.
Feedburner can also be used to create short URL using Goo.gl but there is no website by Google where I could go to and use this service. That problem was solved thanks to a website I came across.
- Gaigalas.net is a website which is run by Alexandre Gaigalas. Once at the website I could simply type in the URL I wanted and click on Shorten.
- This created a short URL using Goo.gl.
- This website is not run by Google and the service is still in testing mode. I used it to shorten DW URL and it works.
Do you know of any such services with respect to Goo.gl? Let me know through your comments.
