How to use Google URL Shortener

google-url-shortenerI Just figured it out!!!

Although it was launched 2 months back but I always thought it is based on invitation basis and only for selected silicon valley’s Geeks, but today I figured out that everybody can use it, the only catch is that for the time being it is bundled with Google product only (Google Chrome/Feedburner/Google Toolbar)

I don’t use Google toolbar as it is only available for Internet Explorer and Firefox. So for me best way to use Google URL Shortener is to use it with Chrome.

For that you need Google Chrome and Chrome Extensions, Once you install Chrome extension for Google URL Shortener, you can create Goo.gl short URLs with a simple click.
