How can I be certain that a URL-shortened link I click isn't going to send me to a dangerous or unwanted site?
When I see a shortened URL, I'm always hesitant to click it because I don't know where the link is going to go. (In the worst case, it may lead to an XSS exploit against a site that I'm logged in to) ...
I have a Google spreadsheet that builds Google Analytics links. I'd like to shorten those links. I tried the Bit.ly example but even their example does not work. How can I do this?
