Another Note about URL Shortening

Cli.gs is getting ready to shut down

In my continued search for a good URL shortener with good tracking I found Cli.gs. It sounded good until I ran across the following article that says it is scheduled to shut down later this month (10-25-09). It would be wise to use another URL shortening provider.

I just went to their blog to verify it. Here is a clip from them:

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

“It is with great sadness that I have to shut down Cligs. On Sunday, 25 Oct 2009 at 12:00:00 GMT, the service will stop accepting new short URLs and will stop logging analytics.

The forwarding data will be retained so that forwarding can continue for at least till the end of November; after that, there are no guarantees as to how long the service will continue to forward the short URLs to their destinations.

Shortly (in a few days), I’ll be deploying a mechanism to export your data. It is almost done and just needs a bit more testing before I’m comfortable releasing it.”
