10/19/10 – update – bit.ly now has QR codes – you have to dig into your stats to grab the QR code but they have it. So for now I am back to my bit.ly account – Google listen up – I like to brand my links so hop on the band wagon and give me what I have with bit.ly and I will be a mighty grateful customer.
Can get a QR code to go with the link – here is the QR for the story I originally saw the post on.
Now that is something I cannot get from bit.ly – at least not yet.
I like that it is linked to my google account – one less thing for me to log in to.
I really like the way it displays my clicks and all of the analytics that are associated with my goo.gl link. Clean and simple!
The biggest one I can see is that I cannot “brand” or personalize my links like I can on bit.ly. That is a huge issue for me – of course that could also change. The ability with bit.ly to customize my URL is part of an SEO strategy, if goo.gl adopted this I would be an avid user of their service.
So I will continue at this time to use both! When I want a QR code I will use goo.gl when I want to personalize I will use bit.ly
