Company Review

We love consumer reviews as they are a good way to get a first feeling about if a website is safe to use or not. Positive reviews usually increase the trust score unless we suspect fake reviews. In this case we found negative goo.gl reviews and the overall trust score of the website was lowered.

Webshop Review

It is quite common that websites share their internet infrastructure (server CPU power, disc space and Internet access) with other websites. This is what goo.gl is doing as well. For smaller websites this is very logical as they do not need all the infrastructure all the time. From a larger brand or high traffic website it is expected that they have their own infrastructure.

We upped our review of the website as it has been given a high ranking by Alexa. Alexa ranks websites based on popularity (how many people are visiting the website every month) and listings (how many other websites link to the site because they consider it valuable).

A significant number of positive reviews for goo.gl were found on other consumer feedback websites like Resellerrating, Trustpilot and Sitejabber. The website seems to be performing well. We therefor increased our rating of this website.

The website is using internet services from 2 countries. A normal website needs several technical services such as a web server, DNS, email server, firewall, etcetera. Smaller companies by all these services often from one company. Larger websites and corporates hire these services from multiple organizations, often spread across multiple countries.

Technical Review

We identified an SSL certificate meaning that the data shared between your browser and the website is encrypted and cannot be read by others. SSL certificates are always used by legit and safe websites. Unfortunately scammers increasingly also use SSL certificates so it is no guarantee that you are visiting a reliable website.
