Thread: Google URL Shortner

    Re: Google URL Shortner

    I've only done a couple of total runs but noticed the last one, a large one, had most of the short urls valid vs the last time most were blocked. Not sure what/if any difference there was

    Re: Google URL Shortner

    Bad news guys:

    Google is shutting down its goo.gl URL shortening service

    Google is certainly pissing me off, just when I figure out how to get some extra juice Google has to go an F it up.

    Skimmed the articles, can anyone degeek and summarize? It's still google right? Are they 301 and if not I would imagine they are still valuable if owned by google? Why the switch?

    It says they won't allow new links to be made soon but SEEMS to be saying that existing links won't ever expire...I'm going to make sure I have a good one made for every money site and 1st tier link I have before the option is closed, would suggest doing the same.

    yep, they couldn't kill the existing ones, millions of people have been using them for their excellent stats for many years...

    so great idea to shorten everything you've got for that extra link juice before it closes etc

    Re: Google URL Shortner

    Hi Pete,
    Just ran my first run of Version 1.5 and there was no option to add short URL's or not and there was an error 'unable to create short url'.
    I understand that google short-links are only available for past users. How do we turn shortlinks off for users who haven't used google short-links previously to avoid the errors?
    Thanks a lot.
    Simon

    Re: Google URL Shortner

    I had issues - only had locations. I was thinking it might be the url as it is long http://www.mydummysite.uk/main-keywo...name-or-longer

    how many shorties were created on that one google account?

    I checked all mine and they are all fine..

    knowing how many you created will help.

    will look into adding "Option" for shorties etc.


    thanks
