    Strictly a matter of opinion.

      goo.gl is not good enough for affiliate links. It doesn't like some of them - so in the end you'll be not redirected!

    Have you looked at SociWiz?

    Does what you're looking for...and the links can always be edited to point to another/different option at a later date....and it includes tracing as well!

    For a small 1-time cost (Under $25), I'd suggest taking a look!

    SociWiz

    Hope that helps!

    I like bit.ly
    I've tried goo.gl but find bit.ly a little easier and better to use.

    I use Pretty Links, which is a free wordpress upload. I have this uploaded into my blog. Its brilliant because it gives great tracking, and gives you unlimited tracking urls. To me this looks better than something like goo.gl or bit.ly.

    This is what I exclusively use. BTW, Bitly doesn't let you change your links after they're created. I recently changed around 8 affiliate links that went dead.

    The best to use is one in which you control the links and the data, you own it.

    Check out WP plugins like Simple Click Tracker or AudiencePress.

    Or self hosted, non WP, Easy Redirect Script.

    I have used and liked the free one from YOURLS: Your Own URL Shortener for years and you can install it on your own domain for the shortened links e.g. securitylinks.co/Sample, securitylinks.co/More etc (no idea if securitylinks.co is still available as a domain).

    Really just depends on what all you want it to do, and the type of tracking you want. I use this pretty exclusively now clikpass.com/special.htm

    Honestly, if you were to ask me. I would say go for clickmagick. When you track your traffic, you have to be detailed. If free is really good, why wouldn't everyone use it?

    Some breakthru require you to make a change for once. Good luck!
