Goo.gl Is The Fastest URL Shortener
By on October 29th, 2010

A few weeks ago, Google announced the public launch of their Goo.gl. Goo.gl can also be used to create QR codes which can be read by mobile phones. With the announcement Google had claimed that it is the fastest URL shortener on the market right now, even faster than Bit.ly, which eventually took a potshot at Google. So is Google’s claim really good?

Pingdom URL Shortener Comparison

Pingdom ran tests on multiple URL shortener’s including Goo.gl and Bit.ly. The results give a astounding victory to Goo.gl, which is in fact 3 times faster their Bit.ly.

As you can see from the chart above, Goo.gl beat Bit.ly and other URL shortener’s by miles. Goo.gl also had a 100% uptime, which was also achieved by Bit.ly.

So if you had been doubting about Google’s claim, this should quell all your doubts.

    Google is the king of speed, doesn’t surprise me. I think this pressure will cause other URL shortener services to up their ante when it comes to speed, to keep up with Google.
