Clarification: 404 errors and spam control Muthu Muthusrinivasan 1/10/11 1:55 PM
Hi all,

To address the recent complaints/comments on this forum about
increasing 404 errors for goo.gl short URLs, we thought we could
provide some clarification.

- We are fairly aggressive in tackling spam and related security
issues on the goo.gl domain, given the fact that users are not aware
of the long URL destination in advance in most cases.

- Our spam detection algorithms are automated, and routinely disable
suspicious goo.gl short URLs. We understand that our algorithms are
not perfect and are continually working on refining them.

- We have thus far displayed all "disabled" goo.gl short URLs as 404
errors. However, to avoid confusion and to provide greater insight
into this process, we plan to start displaying more informative error
pages instead of generic 404 errors. These changes will roll out quite
soon.

We (on the team) do read this list regularly, and really appreciate
your feedback!

Regards,
Google URL Shortener Team

Thanks and that is what I have been telling folks.

Question re the algorithms, if an email is marked as spam in a gmail account and contains a goo.gl url does the URL get flagged as a spam URL? If so how many until it is considered spam and what factors go into qualifying what is spammy?

Thanks,

Thank you for the clarification.

Today I sent a newsletter out to about 1900 subscribers. It looks like
I even cannot link to my own web pages as Google has disabled the
links for spam, security or legal reasons. Even linking to my own web
site is considered spam, insezcure or illegal??

For example:
http://goo.gl/TrDpT
http://goo.gl/NMiwo
http://goo.gl/aDEn

I'm just confused. In fact, I just noticed ALL the links are disabled
in my newsletter (for the 1st time).

Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control cosmitec 1/23/11 3:31 AM
I noticed the 3 URLs I mentioned are enabled again. Thanks so much.

It looks like 3 other links that I always use in my monthly
newsletters are still disabled for the same reason. They link to my
contact pages on my web site and to my Facebook business page.
http://goo.gl/FdU0
http://goo.gl/XAZD
http://goo.gl/VMnf

So, people cannot contact me anymore through my newsletters and have
to surf to my web site and fill out the contact form.

Anyway, I never thought I would really need a URL shortener. I don't
like these crazy little links that raise suspicion because you don't
know what's behind it.

But who's to blame?

When posting long URLs in e-mails (like in newsletters) the links are
broken in most e-mail clients (especially e-mails in txt format). And
people who try to click a broken link almost always think that the
link is wrong or dead or...

And that's the real issue that should be fixed: making sure that even
the longest URLs/links are clickable and are not broken in e-mail
clients. That's what I want instead of a URL shortener. It would be so
much more transparant too so that anyone can see what the link/URL is.
I don't use the URL shortener to hide links, I want my links to be
clickable in any circumstances. Links should work (if the page exists
of course) and be transparant.

I do know it's extremely difficult to write algorithms that try to
find out the intention of the one using short URLs. Not sure if it'll
be ever possible. Unclickable long URLs harm the reliability of (the
information of) the company or business. But short URLs that do not
work are as harmful as well...

Imho it should be one of your main focuses at Google to fix the issue
about unclickable long URLs in e-mail clients so that we don't need
any URL shorteners for this purpose (it's still beyond my
comprehension why major ICT companies like Google or Microsoft have
not been able to solve this issue but I'm unknowledgeable about such
ICT matters too so, perhaps I'm missing something... ;-)

Anyway, I also appreciate all your efforts to make things work, one
step at a time, with the best intentions because it's not an easy job.
Spammers, hackers &Co have made of the internet kind of a jungle or a
war zone... :-)

All the best to the team

Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control si...@maximonsolutions.com 2/22/11 8:19 AM
I've just had the exact same problem. I've been using goo.gl for a
while to track links in my personal emails and loved it. Then I hit on
the idea of including a link to see how many people read the company
newsletter online as opposed to their inbox.

5000 emails and 63 clicks later I get the URL disabled message and my
information has also disappeared. Is there anyway of enabling my link
again?

I also sent my newsletter to 4800 people and get the message this URL
has been disabled.

This isn't the place to report problems with that, but there is one. Fill out the form here:
https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dHNwbnQ0VHpLUm5UY3NGY1B6SE5Vamc6MQ


Note, however, the steady stream of reports in this forum from people who created a goo.gl URL and then e-mailed it to a large number of people only to find that some of them reported it as spam. Any large list is likely to include some number who will do that, and then the link is dead for all the rest. You can't retract the e-mail. The spam monitoring process in goo.gl simply makes this tool inappropriate for use in marketing e-mail.

Given the long and steady stream of messages on this subject, it would be my considered opinion that anyone who includes a goo.gl URL in an important mass mailing should not be considered for promotion anytime soon, and anyone who does it twice should be fired without further discussion.

Use any of the large number of other tools that don't filter spam if you have to. Better yet, set up a real short URL on your own server and take no risk at all. Or just blow me off, your replacement can figure it out.

Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control フォックス・マクラウド 5/23/12 5:37 PM
Hello dear Google Employees & ShortURL users,
and sorry for double posting...but this is crucial for better security:
 
 
This is for your service goo.gl , could you please forward it to the
correct person:


For security reasons it would be vital if you added the following
features to this service:

-not automaticaly forward to the longURL, but ask the user previously
& previously show a preview of the actual URL the shortURL is
forwarding to.
-as well as a screen shot of the actual website (behind the shortURL)

-also an automatic malware site filter that blocks malware sites and
prevents creating shortURLs that refer to malware sites.

-the ability to add tags to a shortURL you created yourself (so that
you & others can easier find what they are interested in...and see what you want to show to them).


And by the way: since the shortURLs are said to be public, where can I
look them up?


Hopefully someone can help.
Thank you very much in advance.
 
BTW @Google URL Shortener Team: why can anyone find my GMail address in this group...normally it is hidden to protect privacy and prevent abuse because of SPAM???


Best wishes!

In the interest of also getting two very important links re-enabled. I am posting on this thread. All of the following links need to be reenabled as they are involved in a wide spread marketing campaign. I have submitted them through the support form multiple times with no results. Please contact me with any questions at he...@nationalcartmarketing.com.

Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control Kenneth Capron 11/8/13 8:23 PM
I have noticed that as I type in my short URL (in Chrome), the caps turn to lower case and result in a 404 error.
When I cut and paste the URL in with the proper uppercase letters, it works fine. 


Is this a Chrome flaw or a flaw in the URL shortener???

When typing the short URL into Chrome, the uppercase letters automatically turn to lower case and this results in a 404 error.
This must be due to the auto fill feature of Chrome or something like that. But it really sucks.


This is going to be a problem since I had 5000 postcards printed with this short URL and I bet most people just give up on registering for the conference. I am responsible for filling seats and this flaw doesn't facilitate that.
Re: [google-url-shortener] Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control vanhorn 11/9/13 12:09 PM
It's not only a Chrome "feature", it's a Chrome feature of your
computer. I rarely actually type URLs (copy and paste being several
orders of magnitude more accurate than my typing) but I typed yours in
and got to a conference registration page. I assume it was yours, it
definitely wasn't a 404.

Given that "CamelCase" is so common in URLs, and that most web servers
are case sensitive, it would be unthinkable that any browser would do
case conversion in the address bar (or unibar). Your system has,
apparently, been modified.

So don't worry about your promotion, unless you sent it via e-mail (very
few goo.gl URLs survive wide distribution in e-mail). Do worry about the
security of your computer.

We have recently created a website below for one of our services, however,
we are afraid that the URL is currently not working.

http://goo.gl/VPcD3

(You see an error message below.)

404: Page not found ? the page http://goo.gl/VPcD3 does not exist.
If you typed in or copied/pasted this URL, make sure you included all
the characters, with no extra punctuation.


Since the service has already been in the market and
we have prepared for the promotion as well,
we hope that you would make the treatment as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

I created a shortened URL along with a QR code to link to an event page for our business.  We tested it several times before sending the flyers and material off to print and we just received the material in the mail.  I just tested the QR Code again and in my history on my phone it is linking to the wrong shortened URL (it is one letter off) - the original shortened URL code still works, is it possible to change the link my QR code is routing to?  The problem is, I downloaded it but it's not showing when I log in that I ever created a QR code. 

Can this even be fixed or are we going to have re-order ALL the materials we put this QR Code on?

Help!  Thank you!

Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control Sabrina Ramey 4/8/14 2:09 PM
Thanks Google Shortener Team, but that actually doesn't answer my question at all... let me rephrase: 

I recently created a QR that links to a shortened goo.gl URL for a web page for an event we are hosting.  We tested the QR code multiple times before we ordered the marketing material that it was going on and it worked fine.  We just received the marketing material and tested the QR code and it is linking to the wrong shortened URL code.  In my phone QR reader history the original short URL is still there and is still working (It is one letter different from the one the QR code is linking to now).  Is there a way to change the link to the QR code we have already created since we have already ordered printed materials this is on?
Original shortened URL we would like the QR code to link to: http://goo.gl/DzLh2A
Current shortened URL the QR code is linking to right now: http://goo.gl/DzLh2R

Please let me know if you can help! Thank you!

wow.  so,  I've just lost 3 hours of my time, generating qr codes to go on the labels of my boxes.... they link to evernote notes that contain the list of stuff in them...  and then I hide them.  that way, anybody that scans the box can see what is in it.  

3 hours.  Make the notes, get the codes for the links, print a bunch of labels...  and now it seems like most of them don't work.  They WERE working, because I test them as I make them... and also as I generate the label - to make sure I have the right one on the right label.

3 HOURS!!!

why?! what could POSSIBLY have marked these as spam?

Please re-enable ALL of the codes/links that I created today...  I don't want to do this all over again.... and fail again.  I had hoped to finish this job tonight... now, because of your way over-aggressive algorithm... i'm stuck sitting here doing nothing

3 HOURS!!!!!

Just sent out a mass newsletter using a shortened URL from Google. 800+ people just received it with a link that was marked as spam even though it is not spam but a link to a 4th of July parade. If this could be resolved before anymore people click the link would be great. It makes my business look unprofessional. Please help. Thank you.

But your business *is* unprofessional, you just sent a goo.gl short URL to over 800 people via e-mail, something that is almost certain to result in the link being marked spam by at least one of the recipients. I assume that the messages in this forum are available to be read, and I myself have said this same thing dozens of times. The experience of dozens of others who have had links disabled in exactly the same way has been shared here, even if you didn't read my comments about their experience you should have learned from their problems that this simply isn't the right tool for that job. A professional would have done that preparation in advance.

I really need to figure out how to unsubscribe from this list, it doesn't do my blood pressure any good to repeat this point over and over again.

But even you deserve to have your question answered now that I'm up, here's the link to fix your link:

Re: [google-url-shortener] Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control Hillary W-R 6/25/14 6:03 AM
I'm sorry but under the circumstance you have also gone through this issue and can understand the frustration. I did not read nor have I heard of anyone complaining about using a website to shorten a link through Google. It is not unprofessional to use an outside website in order to make a newsletter look smooth without a lot of unnecessary letters from a URL. There is no preperation when it comes to another businesses website URL. If you have also complained about the same issue then there is no need to be disrespectful when someone happens to stumble across that issue.
Re: [google-url-shortener] Re: Clarification: 404 errors and spam control vanhorn 6/25/14 11:19 AM
No, I have not gone through this issue, I've just watched with dismay as dozens of other people have come along and done the same thing you have.

No, it is not unprofessional to use an outside website to shorten a link. However, a professional either follows best practices or varies from them based on reason. You use a URL shortener like goo.gl in cases where the absolute length of the URL is the over-riding concern, which basically means on Twitter. You do *not* use such a URL when the prospective market will have to type the URL, in that case you make sure that every character is identifiable and preferably memorable.

It is unprofessional to use a URL shortener without learning the advantages of different providers. It doesn't take much investigation to learn that goo.gl is dramatically sensitive to the spam question. When you ran into problems, you came here to ask for a solution. A professional would have come here first.

I can't tell if you're referring to a newsletter on paper or via e-mail, but in either case a professional will test any new feature extensively before using it in production. If a professional is going to send out an e-mail blast to ten thousand users this week, it's only because he tested it with five hundred users last week.

If you're using a short URL for appearances, that probably means you are doing this in print. In that case, you need to use a service that allows you to create a meaningful URL, not a random one. If you are doing this in e-mail, you don't use a short URL you just use appropriate anchor text, the underlying URL is of little or no concern.

Professionals educate themselves, they act very carefully, and they are rarely surprised. When a pro is surprised, his reaction is along the lines of "I should have thought about that" rather than "oh, poor unlucky me". You aren't dealing with a lack of luck, you're experiencing an avoidable error. Don't whine about it, learn something.

Hello Muthu Muthusrinivasan & hello goo.gl Team,

as this user pointed out, it does not make a good/professional impression if your links do not work.


However, I do appreciate your efforts to fight SPAM and Malware very much! Thank you. But it shouldn't render this service unusable for professional campaigns.


Please, wouldn't it be possible (and cool!) if you inserted a "Gateway page" prior to opening a shortened URL?

This Gateway Page should show the full Long URL and an actual Screenshot of that Website, maybe even check that Website for a security rating and highlight the score on the Gateway Page (scoring e.g.: 0 to 10 points. 0=absolutely dangerous, 10="perfectly" safe).

That way, users could decide if they want to proceed to that Website or if they stop (e.g. if the Website seems malicious and hence has low/dangerous security rating)



For business users and professionals an automated algorithm that disables "random" Short URLs is a killer to your online campaigns. Hence, it is unfortunately way to risky to use goo.gl for professional purposes.


Additionally, it would be also great, if the Short URL was customizable.



Best wishes!
SFxoFFx

This is a good idea, but would break the functionality of several existing
short urls that people seem to use to embed content on their pages. (Which
is not a good idea if you want metrics for your site.)

There does exist some URL shorteners that do that, the first one that comes
to mind is http://v.gd/

Besides functionality, from broader scope, having unpredictable behaviour of
short URLs based on user preference when it was generated wouldn't help here,
as it would further confuse and frustrate even more users.

Hi

I've just noticed that Google has disabled all my twitter links, and I still can't understand the reason. 

I was sharing my new blog post and I noticed that all the links were blocked, so suddenly, I've lost my work of the last five years on twitter, I'm so sad about this... Is there any way to submit my links to be reviewed ? I'm a human not a spam machine.

Some of the links to my own site that you have blocked:


As you can see, they are links to my own blog, there are a lot of sites I've shared too, but I can't still understand it. I'd like to solve this please my twitter @perlssdj is now dead :(

Sorry for my broken english, but I guess you are able to understand, thanks for your help.

Hi,
I got the same issue here since 2 days

- One of my old link has been stoped because it reach of too many click. That's OK
- But a new one linking a .exe has been disabled for no reason

Does Google forbid now links to .exe ??? or did it find something wrong in it (it seems there is no virus inside) ?

Can somebody please re-enable goo.gl/ju5ogV? It's a link to a Google form that we are hoping to use to register participants in a teen job fair. I'm afraid it has been marked as spam. Thank you!

Hi all,

To address the recent complaints/comments on this forum about
increasing 404 errors for goo.gl short URLs, we thought we could
provide some clarification.

- We are fairly aggressive in tackling spam and related security
issues on the goo.gl domain, given the fact that users are not aware
of the long URL destination in advance in most cases.

- Our spam detection algorithms are automated, and routinely disable
suspicious goo.gl short URLs. We understand that our algorithms are
not perfect and are continually working on refining them.

- We have thus far displayed all "disabled" goo.gl short URLs as 404
errors. However, to avoid confusion and to provide greater insight
into this process, we plan to start displaying more informative error
pages instead of generic 404 errors. These changes will roll out quite
soon.

In May, I shortened a link to a URL to:


It was fine as of a few weeks ago, but is now broken

I desperately need this link re-activated if at all possible. It's not spam or anything nasty. It simply links to a flickr album.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Hello Muthu and google team 

we are facing an issue, we have been using Google shorten for the past 2 years, posted over 3,000 social post using them, now all these URLs are broken leading to 404 error, we have been facing complains for fans followers and social media users about this, 

is it related to the google account that created these urls?  our community manager had to leave the company and thus we deactivated the account, is that it? 

is there anything we could do to reactivate these URLS?

Thanks,

Hi,

Anyone found a way to reactivate links? My client has given a Google short URL to about 90 customers and I would really prefer if it can be reactivated or atleast redirected to a new link.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks!

I desperately want to know how can I do that.

Please help!

Non sbaglia mai e stra mai, ovvero, azzecca sempre, facendo fare tantissimi soldi, a tutti, in previsioni su azioni e materie prime. Ma azzecca anche, qualsiasi previsione in politica, calcio. Qualunque altra cosa. Michele Nista e' una vera e propria success machine, tutti i giorni dell'anno. Michele Nista e' un grandissimo Re Mida, uno dei piu' grandi Re Mida di tutti i tempi, in azioni, materie prime e non solo. E questo da fine anni 80, non solo da ora. O da due, tre anni. E' molto boicottato, il genio Michele Nista, da un topo di fogna, gia' condannato al carcere in Italia, Brasile, e indagato in
Inghilterra, che e' il pervertito sessuale, nazista, minacciante morte, e quindi, assassino: Paolo Barrai di Mercato Libero.
Non mi credete su che verme sia l'assassino fallito Paolo Barrai che attacca sempre, il genio in azioni e materie prime, nonche', eroe civile, Michele Nista? Allora date un'occhiata a cosa scrive chi da lui, si e' visto, di fatto, derubare milioni di euro, tutti risparmi che aveva:
Gruppo di risparmiatori truffati da bastardissimo criminale, pluri pregiudicato, avanzo di galera Paolo Barrai ( Blog Mercato "Merdato" Libero). Da incapace, delinquente, ladro, mega lava EURO mafiosi o "politicriminali", padanazista, berlusconazista, razzista, antisemita, super cocainomane, acclarato pedofilo, frequente mandante di omicidi Paolo Barrai ( Mercato Libero noto a tutto il mondo come Mer-d-ato Libero). Si, assolutamente, pure assassino Paolo Barrai ( "suicidatore" di David Rossi di Mps ma non solo). Schifoso lava cash mafioso e killer Paolo Barrai nato a Milano il 28.6.1965. E, prima di ora scappare come un vile ratto, a Lugano, in Svizzera (avendo paura di venire arrestato, in quanto indagato da Procure di Mezza Italia) e fra poco ancora piu' lontano: a Panama ( ove lo proteggerebbe il criminalissimo nazifascista corrottissimo ambasciatore lava EURO e $ mafiosi Giancarlo Maria Curcio
http://www.ambpanama.esteri.it/Ambasciata_Panama/Menu/Ambasciata/Ambasciatore/
non per niente, vicino al noto camorrist-avanzo di galera Valter Lavitola

Verme repellente Paolo Barrai di Mercato Libero: facente sue terrificanti delinquenze in cravatta da casa ( comprata attraverso centinaia di estorsioni di quando trafficava in Citibank e tantissimi altri crimini) di Via Ippodromo 105 Milano. O DAGLI UFFICI DI MALAVITOSA, MEGA LAVA SOLDI DI COSA NOSTRA, LADRONA, BASTARDAMENTE CRIMINALE BSI ITALIA SRL DI VIA SOCRATE 26 MILANO. IN MANO A SUO PADRE, NOTO PADANAZIS-T-RUFFATORE E PURE NOTO PEDERASTA VINCENZO BARRAI. ABITANTE IN VIA PADOVA 282 A MILANO E NATO A MILANO IL 3.5.1938
Ciao, sono Antonella di Milano, e faccio parte di un foltissimo gruppo di clienti derubati di tutto, dall'assolutamente criminale Paolo Barrai (Mercato Libero, ormai noto nel mondo intero come Mer-d-ato Libero). Costui e'¨ davvero un bastardo assassino sicario. A tutti noi, uniti ora in una associazione " Risparmiatori truffati da spietato criminale Paolo Barrai di Mercato Libero (e siamo gia' in centoventi, dico centiventi: di tutta Italia, Brasile, Germania e Svizzera)" ci fece andare corti ( al ribasso) sul mercato azionario italiano a inizio 2009 (col Dow Jones ai minimi degli ultimi decenni: 6900; cosa che avrebbe potuto fare solo l'Ugo Fantozzi misto a Renato Vallanzasca della Finanza: Paolo Barrai). Abbiam perso quasi tutti tra il 70 e il 100 per cento dei nostri investimenti. E quando gli telefonavamo per chiedere semplicemente che fare, mentre il mercato saliva rapidissimamente, dal Marzo 2009 in avanti, egli, se non meglio dire, "esso", come un vile ratto, scappava. Si faceva sempre negare al telefono. Mandavamo e mails, nessuna risposta. Citofanavamo agli uffici di ultra truffatrice, ultra malavitosa, ultra ladrona Bsi Italia Srl di Via Socrate 26 a Milano di suo padre, notoriamente pure pedofilo, oltre che mega ricicla soldi criminal-istituzionali o mafiosi, Vincenzo Barrai di Via Padova 282 a Milano, ci vedeva dalla telecamera e nemmeno ci rispondeva. Nemmeno ci apriva il cancello di entrata. Io non sto offendendo, sto solo dicendo la mera verita’ . E fra poco la faremo sapere a fior fior di Tribunali di mezza Italia, anzi, mezzo Pianeta Terrra!!! Che i delinquenti ti debbano fare fessa, e pure non permettano replica, no eeeee. Il neofascismo e la mafia del delinquente, del ladro, del truffatore, del professionalmente incapacissimo, del davvero bastardo dentro e fuori Paolo Barrai di Mercato Libero alias Mer-d-ato Libero, a noi non fa nessuna paura.
Una truffata, derubata di tutto, dal verme assassino Paolo Barrai (già riciclante soldi di Mafia, Camorra, Ndrangheta, come di mastodontici ladrocinii o mega corruzione di Umberto Bossi e Silvio Berlusconi). Fra l'altro, socio, non compare di malavita, ma socio di:

detto questo detto tutto.. immaginerei!!
Mi ha bruciato 700.000 euro. Tutto quello che avevo. Ma a tanti altri ha bruciato 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10 milioni di euro. Facendo comprare il gas naturale a 5$ e passa, che in poche settimane crollava a 1,9$. Facendo vendere il Dow Jones a 6900, ossia ai minimi di tanti ultimi anni. Dow Jones che ora quasi vale il doppio. E senza che lui prendesse telefonate, rispondesse ad emails. Senza dare indicazione alcuna a noi clienti terrorizzati! Come uno struzzo che dalla paura e coscienza di essere incapacissimo a livello di fiuto per investimenti, mette la testa sotto la sabbia.
Il verme brucia risparmi di una vita Paolo Barrai oltre ad essere il peggiore consulente per investimenti borsistici o di qualsiasi altro tipo, ove inesorabilmente sbaglia sempre (ha fatto comprare case in Brasile, a Porto Seguro ... ove lo attendono 8 ANNI DI GALERA SE VI CI TORNA, E NE SCRIVER̉ہ" PRESTISSIMO.. dicevo... ha fatto comprare case in Brasile, a Porto Seguro, col real a 2,1 contro l'euro.. e ora son state tutte sequestrate dall'anti mafia Brasiliana, per mega riciclaggio per conto di Cosa Nostra, Camorra e Ndrangheta.. e comunque, il real brasiliano e' passato dai massimi di 2,1 contro l'euro, livello di quando il cagnaccio idiota, brucia risparmi di una vita, Paolo Barrai, ha fatto comprare, financo a 3,2 contro euro.. creando perdite economiche immense, in ogni caso, a chi come " un ciuccio ei napule" le avesse con lui acquistate). Ove mai, mai e ri mai ne azzecca mezza!E' anche un irresponsabile, arrogante, nazista, razzista, lava soldi mafiosi, codardo, ladro, truffatore, criminale, falsissimo, pedofilo, si, PEDOFILO PAOLO BARRAI (SE NO CHE BERLUSCONES SAREBBE, SCUSATE???)!!! ANCHE QUI LO PROVEREMO E PRESTISSIMO)!!!!!!
E mi dicono che ha pregresse, pure varie condanne al carcere. A Milano (come da questi seguenti articoli: il criminalissimo "funzionario nei guai" di Citibank, a seguito dell'arresto del suo "Kameraden Berlusconazisten und Padanazisten" Pietro Terenzio, come da fine scritto che qui segue, è assolutissimamente lui:

Hi all,

To address the recent complaints/comments on this forum about
increasing 404 errors for goo.gl short URLs, we thought we could
provide some clarification.

- We are fairly aggressive in tackling spam and related security
issues on the goo.gl domain, given the fact that users are not aware
of the long URL destination in advance in most cases.

- Our spam detection algorithms are automated, and routinely disable
suspicious goo.gl short URLs. We understand that our algorithms are
not perfect and are continually working on refining them.

- We have thus far displayed all "disabled" goo.gl short URLs as 404
errors. However, to avoid confusion and to provide greater insight
into this process, we plan to start displaying more informative error
pages instead of generic 404 errors. These changes will roll out quite
soon.

Hello, 

I just noticed that our most important short url has been disabled. It has been used for our weekly newsletters to our own small emaillist for quite some time. Besides this there is no other indication why this could have happened. 

goo.gl/IvP3o6

This link will never be used again but please enable it because many people will not now find what they are looking for.

Hi Muthu and team,

We've had the same problem. We're being flooded with emails from our supporters saying they get an error when they click the link to join the campaign. http://goo.gl/NiOoyl 

Every supporter opted into getting our emails, and the link above simply redirects to our website to a campaign page about an issue. We don't understand how we have violated the services. Forcing girls to have a compulsory virginity test in order to get a scholarship is a violation of human rights, and the South African constitution.

Muthu,

My blog is connected to the Triberr Website and when the shortened URL to my most recent post is clicked in Triberr or in Twitter I get this message:

"http://goo.gl/YdDKKx – this goo.gl shortlink has been disabled. It was found to be violating our Terms of Service. Click here and here for more information about our terms and policies respectively."

I have hit the request review link but I haven't heard anything back yet. I've been posting for four years and never had any trouble before so I'm not sure what Terms of Service I'm violating. I'm hoping to get this resolved as soon as possible.

Here is the link to my blog post that has been disabled: http://www.impressionevergreen.com/2016/03/mountains-at-collioure-watercolor.html

Thanks for your consideration,
Dan Miller

We would like to bring to your attention a serious lapse that has occurred in a public petition, on the Change.org platform, that was sent to close to 100,000 supporters. We had been fighting for a legal backing for people who help road accident victims in India and had a victorious judgment by the Apex Court recently. Refer to the following link - https://www.change.org/p/talk2jpnadda-introduce-a-good-samaritan-law-in-the-parliament/u/16218062 

However, due to some error, our supporters are unable to view all the short links, which contains the guidelines and copy of the Apex court judgment, which they must keep with them all time. The three links, which are part of the email have been disabled. Here are the links: goo.gl/D8hG92goo.gl/U81piO and https://goo.gl/tzLnHw

We are unable to rectify this from the Change.org back-end because once an update is sent out, it cannot be changed! 

We request you to review our links and reactivate them as they could have been identified by your server as spam. It is urgent that the message reaches out to supporters otherwise it will jeopardize our campaign on the petition platform.
