Google Free URL Shortener Service

Google Free URL Shortener Service

15.Nov.2021

In this post i'll go into a brief explanation of what Google URL shortener has to offer. I will focus on the importance of using a url shortening service, how it works and most popular services available for you to use.

I am currently using Goo.gl in my online business for link tracking, but also other uses like utm tracking, etc. If you want to learn more about UTM parameters click here .

Google offers it free of charge, so why not take advantage of that? You can simply sign up here , or click "settings" in the side menu once logged in (see below)

Once you've signed up and added your website account(s), all urls shortened with Goo.gl will be tracked and you'll be able to see statistics for all of your links in one central dashboard.

In the "settings" section under accounts, you can add your websites from which you would like to shorten urls with use Google's free service or other services such as Bitly , Ow.ly, Rebrandly , etc.

You can also create a shortening url for a specific country. For example, if iwanttoshortenmyurlforitalyonly .com is a website that only caters towards Italians I could set up a Goo.gl url shortcut that points to it by using its corresponding ccTLD .it (see below). But iwanttoshortenmyforitalyonly .com will always resolve to the same url/path no matter what country you are in or visiting from.

You can also set up vanity short urls for free with Goo.gl, just by adding your desired keyword after "goo" in the settings section (see below).

If you're interested in managing multiple accounts with your Google login, all you have to do is click "add account" and if you want to use another service like Bitly , Ow.ly, Rebrandly , etc. simply switch it here . If not proceed by clicking save changes at the bottom of this menu bar.

Now go ahead and shorten some urls! I know i did :) Some cool things about using Goo.gl: 1) You can use it without a Google account. 2) You can shorten urls from your mobile while surfing on the go, just login with your Google account(s). 3) I have personally had some troubles using other services for link tracking, so i stick with Goo.gl.

These are some of my favourite features about Goo.gl and why you should also consider using it :)

I hope this post helps anyone having trouble understanding url shorteners . If you have any more questions feel free to leave a comment below or ask in the comments section of any social media platform that you use! Cheers :D
