    Google has offered URL shorting services for a long long time now, but almost nobody bother to notice.

    On top of that, the original and still current offering by Google is the best way to handle this, as Google lets your domain be used as the URL shorten service.

    This eliminates the problem of branding, users confusing other links as yours, and more importantly in a lot of cases ownership of the link. As why oh why would any major brand let a 3rd party take control/ownership of its links, also read the fine print of many of the TOS in those 3rd parties and you will see that some have the option to run advertising, disable and even redirect the traffic.

    Here is Google’s shorten URL service, that is available for free to anyone that owns a domain name:

    Interesting – the benefit of not having to go off site to shorten a URL is definitely appealing. I’m curious to see how this will affect Bit.ly’s stats. I very rarely see TinyURLs anymore since Twitter made the switch to Bit.ly. @charm there are other URL shortening solutions available that allow you to brand the shortened URL.
