    Whenever Google does it, everyone thinks 'Omg! It's Google!' Google has that unique effect. Also, they are going to take over the world one day anyway!

    Google's shortner defends whoever uses the links, it prevents malware links etc, goo.gl links thus should be safer + you get amazing stats on everything about the link
