The Search giant Google in a recent blog post on its official blog has announced that they are shutting down the URL Shortening Service on March 30th, 2019.

This came as a surprise to many avid internet users as was one of the best URL Shortening services around. Although Google was late to enter this market back in 2009, it quickly grew popular because of its clean look, no advertisements and it was pretty much faster than any other service on the internet.

With URL Shortening service, Google had changed the way people shared their links. They introduced analytics, link open count and many other features to get their users hooked and this made the most sought-after service around.
