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

thanks for Your Suggestion, currently i'm using google url shortener only

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.

When you create a short URL for a page, the page rank is not negatively affected by a short URL. All page rank data transfers over to the main URL. However, an URL used as a link with anchor text does not need a short URL. The user only sees the anchor text, so having a long URL does not affect their experience.

It is a good thing for people who often use social media as part of their marketing campaigns or who just use them to share content. According to several ranking specialists, it seems that using URL shorteners doesn't lead to any negative impact on your SEO.
