goo.gl

You can Shorten goo.gl links with goo.gl. I don’t understand why but now you can create links like http://goo.gl/LoeN┬áthat don’t go anywhere. This because your browser stops redirecting after some x redirects. This is what IE 8 does:
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/LoeN IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:38.453
GET /LoeN HTTP/1.1
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/LoeN IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:38.671
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://goo.gl/iVC1
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/iVC1 IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:38.671
GET /iVC1 HTTP/1.1
-------------------

-------------------
URI: goo.gl/1LyW IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:38.734

-------------------

Location: http://goo.gl/SSq8
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/SSq8 IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:38.968
GET /SSq8 HTTP/1.1
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/SSq8 IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:39.046
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://goo.gl/J6rK
-------------------
URI: goo.gl/J6rK IP: 66.102.13.101:80 Time: 23:08:39.046
GET /J6rK HTTP/1.1
-------------------

But http://goo.gl/LoeN is pointing somewhere. Please let me know if your browser reaches the final URL……..
