goo.gl

Goo.gl, the Google’s URL shortener service introduces a new dedicated website: goo.gl.

It now offers some basic statistics concerning the URL too (references, country, navigator, OS). [Though, it would been better if it provide integration with Twitter for retweet counts]

If you’re using Feedburner’s RSS feed redirection service, then you may already know that you can link your blog’s feed to your Twitter account, using Goo.gl. In this case, you can obtain your statistics for previous tweets by simply getting at goo.gl.

You can also shorten your URLs on the homepage and share them (same as Bit.ly).

The main advantage with Google is that, upon connecting to your Gmail account, the connection to goo.gl is automatic and transparent.
