Hi all,

 

I just tried to shorten my URL but this message popped up instead and I can't find any information on what it means. Can you help? Thanks.

I've noticed they have made a few minor changes to the interface since i last used it.
Have you tried clearing your browser cookies and cache?

Once you have done that, I would wait 10mins and then try again.

Have you been shortening a number of urls at a rapid rate?
If not, something may have gone a bit pear shaped on Google's side regarding api limits and the url shortener

Literally I’ve changed the builder to another browser and it works.

I just got this and all I had to do was clear all my cache/cookies and it fixed it. I am on Chrome.

Open another tab and go to goo.gl to shorten it. Same output without this issue.

Did anyone find a permanent solution to this problem? I'm having it now. I've switched browser, cleared the cache and cookies, and still not working properly. I'm not doing multiple URLs at the same time. Olivers solution won't work for me as I need it as a UTM link for GA.

 

thanks in advance,

Eoin

I usually just use notepad or a similar text editor

add the url and simply add what utm parameters with their values to the end of it

eg

https://www.example.com/page.html?utm_source=mysource&utm_medium=mymedium&utm_campaign=mycampaign

Then as per  @Samuel J suggestion.. if it needs to be shortened.. put the whole url into

google url shortener manually, to shorten it
