Should You Use URL Shorteners?  Reply with quote  

You know - Since this was a longer Wordpress URL, like millions of other webmasters, I used a URL shortening service to make this link more usable and manageable.

I posted this shortened URL to Twitter and placed it in my weekly email posting... immediately I started getting emails from my subscribers and followers... the link doesn't work, you must have made a mistake.

Which can be easily done, but when I checked the link, I found that the shortening service was not working properly and giving the dreaded "Page Not Found" response. To compound the problem, I was using the Google URL shortener Goo.gl and since it was Google everybody assumed the mistake was on my part. I mean Google is Google.

In the past, I had been using bit.ly but had switched to Goo.gl, well - because it's Google. And everything works better with Google; this was the first time something I used with Google had not worked as planned. And it just wasn't my links, none of the links with Goo.gl were working. No big loss, unless you were linking your Black Friday & Cyber Monday traffic thru these shorteners. Ouch.

The Goole told me that URL shortening services are experiencing a renaissance in the age of Twitter.Twitter?? What does it mean? Of course long url has many different shortage, if we all ask the shortening services make our url become more and more short, but what will happen next time?

For Twitter - when needed - yes. For your main website I'd say no.
