Google URL shortener goo.gl today received a couple of new feature:

  • Copy to clipboard:
    This feature is avilable for past two weeks, lets you copy new short URLs to your clipboard. "When a new short URL is created, the text on the page will automatically be highlighted, and you can simply press Control+C (or Command+C on a Mac) to copy it."

  • Remove from dashboard:
    New, now you can also remove items from your dashboard, so that you can see a quick summary of only your most important links and hide the ones you no longer need.

    Please note: Hiding a short URL, means you're only removing it from dashboard. The URL will still exist and work. You can't add short URLs back into your dashboard once you've hidden them. Remember that you can always view analytics for any of your short URLs by appending a "+" to the end of them (e.g., http://goo.gl/rQ6HT+). This feature will be rolling out over the next several days, and may not work immediately on mobile devices.

  • Spam reporting:
    Google set up goo.gl/spam-report for telling about a goo.gl URLs that lead to spam sites. So far it's helped us a lot in identifying and blocking short URLs that lead to spam, so keep those reports coming.
