Google URL Shortener
Trustable URL shortener.
Not as many features as other services like bit.ly, but still gets the job done well.
Site is OK, but can be used by spammer to hide the origin of themselves. "goo.gl/6oIXi" is one example. A message I received on Windows Live.

Being used for spam or worse. This site has been showing up in my spam filter as coming from UPS, USPS, ACH Network Rules Department and others, varying subject lines such as: 7d54c03407651e9b Rejected_Direct Deposit_No._ and variations claiming my direct deposit failed. Of course there was no direct deposit and the to: line is filled with names I don't know. The text has an an url of: HRHCYNZCZYXL-NACHA- âę which leads to goo.gl/7lohi. Have NOT clicked it nor will i.

A URL shorten-er made and hosted by google. Though not dangerous it is used by criminals to lure people to unsafe links.
A scam and a fraud! Avoid!

Google's URL shortener isn't bad itself BUT hackers use it to lure visitors to a malicious site.
