URL shorteners does not affect your SEO. If you want to use a web-based service Google run Goo.gl and then there is Bit.ly and TinyURL.

Google's recent announcement of its new URL shortener may play a strong role in your site's search engine optimization practices in the future. The service, which converts long URLs into short ones, makes it easier for users to share links on popular social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
A recent article on SearchEngineWatch stated that linkbacks may be improved by the service, and could improve a site's click-through rates. "Goo.gl could work into Google's ranking algorithm and become a factor in real-time search results and possibly even regular search results if the shortener proves popular.

Use URL shortener if your URL is too long like to post in twitter your URL may take majority of the characters, so sometimes you it need and sometimes not.

A short URL doesn't create any extra overhead - at least not in the conventional usage of the world - it just obfuscates the URL and, if it doesn't  use a 301 redirect, interferes with proper PageRank flow. The only reason to use URL shortener is for services like Twitter, where you have a low character limit, or for mobile users for whom  it's difficult to type long URLs. In the most cases, you should  just generate a slug from the page title. Doing so gets rid of any special characters and unnecessary articles or cojunctions. This shortens the URL while keeping it descriptive and user-friendly.

Not only google but any url shortener will helps you in the SEO. URL shortener are used for the minimizing the size of the URL so it can be easily remembered and you can use it somewhere where we have limited character option like twitter. Otherwise there is no need for them.

I think google shorter URL Will not useful for seo purpose because that is a different url. You can use short url for shearing your article & Content not your main url which one you want to rank in google ranking page.

They can lead to spamming and endless redirections But they will pass link juice.

If you use Google URL shortener or any other Custom URL shortener it won't do you any harm if that's what you are concerned about. But, it won't help your SEO also. It is just a redirecting technique which is used especially on social media to redirect a user to a web page. Also the link juice and anchor text flow through that URL to your web page.

It would be better if you use Google shortener links or any other link shortening service like Bitly mostly for social media.

Google shorterner or Bitly shortener can mostly be helpful on platforms like Twitter where you have to put your tweet in 140 characters so you can put your shortened link and reduce the space that would be occupied otherwise.

Shortner links might not help you too much in SEO.

It would be better if you use actual URL's while linking using a keyword anchor text

Get a plugin pretty links lite for wordpress. It leaves your url and lets you change after / to whatever you want so yoursite.com/article-1 can become yoursite.com/whatever-you-want-to

That's one of the solutions...

Google Shortener Links or any other link Shortening services like Bitly, owly etc do the primary task of Shortening the Long URLS.

I generally use the Bitly shortener primarily for Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. I don't think that these link Shortener services will help much from SEO point of view. Like in Twitter you have the limitation of 140 characters, so Link shortening service come handy at such places.

The Google URL shortener, at goo.gl, is a free, online URL shortening service. To use the shortener, copy and paste your long URL into the online form to obtain a much shorter URL that redirects to the source address

Shorten urls are using because to get more clicks on our site to avoid the spam feeling in the users point of view. Use short urls for the social media postings or promotions. Don't place these short urls in the anchor text while doing backlinks.
