This service is host to various phishing and spam operators and should not be trusted, as of this date. Google insists that, to file any abuse of this service, one must sign into their service. This is yet another abuse upon anyone that wants to report spam! I've discovered also that reporting a working link of theirs does not always work. I had one come back as being "not a valid link" yet the shortened link did work.

This is a URL Shortener made by Google Corporations Inc. This one can really make URLS more short but this never had advertisements so you can't earn money. But it's very good site and safe! No phishing, auto-download etc.

overall: Suspicious pros: - Shortens long URLs; good for services related to Twitter - No ads cons: - Used by criminals as you cannot see the actual URL unless you use third-party extensions my description: If you ever see a goo.gl link, chances are it's either phishing or will lead you to untrustworthy services. Visiting the site itself is harmless if the link isn't shortened. I'd recommend getting a URL unshortener before opening one.

URL shortener owned by Google. It can be used for illegitimate purposes as well.

Идея сайта хорошая, сами используем, где нельзя проставлять прямые ссылки. Но этим же пользуются и мошеннические сайты.

Like most URL shorteners this service breaks the WOT context menu.

Мало того, что скрывает вредоносные ссылки, так еще https протокол подключили, чтоб антивирусникам тяжелее было вредоносные сайты отключать. А сама google совершенно не пытается контролировать, что за гадости через себя пропускает ! Через этот сократитель ссылок в основном только мошенники и распространители зловредных скриптов работают. (а так же привлекатели рефералов на зловредные и мошенические сайты)

Не советую пользоваться данным сервисом для сокращения реферальных ссылок, т.к. 60% он пропускает делая их обычными.

goo.gl is googles URL shortening service I've used this for some time on both chromebook and android if you have an android device you can install Google URL shortener app, this isn't a official app from Google, once installed just link it to goo.gl by signing into app with your Google account in the app you'll see similar details about how many clicks on a URL you've shortened have been clicked, where in the world it was clicked, what type of browser was used mainly the same stats which you see when clicking details in goo.gl site now for chromebook just open chromes extensions and search for One Click URL shortener and link it to same account you use the android app on after extension has been linked with Google account it will place an icon at right of address bar now all URLs you shorten via extension will also appear in your goo.gl shortener service, so now you can view and share all URLs from android app and chrome extension.

Site itself was created with benign, but is often abused by contemptible crooks to lure unsuspecting victims into the trapdoor that is the malware domains that just can't wait to utterly screw up the victims' computers. Therefore, using it is like playing with a live bomb.
