    Google’s URL Shortener Goes Public!

     Google’s URL Shortener Goes Public



    Google’s URL shortener has been available for some time but frustratingly only as a feature of specific products like Google Toolbar, Blogger, Maps, Picasa and Feedburner.

    Today Google reveals a website
    Code:
    http://goo.gl/
    That lets you simply copy and paste the long URL and instantaneously produce a short one – pretty standard stuff.



    Google insists it isn’t going head on against the likes of ~ Due To The Increase In Phishing We Now Disallow Protected URL's ~ but instead will focus on what it knows best; stability, security and speed.

    While there isn’t an official extension or bookmarklet out there, they are in fact already all over the place – despite no official API. My personal favorites; the bookmarklet, Chrome extension, Firefox addon and if you’re on Safari, this is an absolute must.

    I don't know if it's forbidden but people don't like to see those links because they can't know where you will get (Gay porn etc...). Links that can give you money when other people click them are forbidden.
