[ Sharing ] Analysing and retrieving the Statistics from shortened URLs

I’m going to talk about how you can view or check whether someone else clicked on the same shortened url as you.
This is also pretty useful if you want to know whether you are a target of a scam or being targetted to a drive-by.

The url which i’m going to test today is this:
http://www.dailychanges.com/

Let’s go through some of the URL shorteners and how we can get more info from these shortened URLs.
Bit.do
======
The original shortened link is http://bit.do/bKoMw
But if you append a “-” without the double quotes like this http://bit.do/bKoMw-
You will get to the statistics page for this shortened url.
It gave some important information about Referer sites, Referer pages and even visitors IP.
Probably dangerous if users are being targetted.

Next we will talk about Is.gd
Is.gd
======
The original shortened link is http://is.gd/MyG7K6
However, if users want to look at the statistics, they can simply change the url to something like the one below.
http://is.gd/stats.php?url=MyG7K6

Next we will talk about
Goo.gl
======
The original shortened link is http://goo.gl/z8w84
But if you append a “.” without the double quotes or “info” like this http://goo.gl/z8w84+ or http://goo.gl/z8w84.info
Once you go to the statistics pages, you will be redirected to something like this below.
https://goo.gl/#analytics/goo.gl/z8w84/all_time

Next we will talk about
Bit.ly
======
The original shortened link is https://bit.ly/1LsiFyY
But if you append a “.” without the double quotes like this https://bit.ly/1LsiFyY+
Using the statistics page, you can also check which other user are also sharing the exact same url as you did.
Please note that if the other user(s) used Google analytics in the url, you might not be able to see them in your statistics page.

Next we will talk about
crop.is
=======
The original shortened link is http://crop.is/NV8
However, if users want to look at the statistics, they can simply change the url to something like the one below.
http://crop.is/NV8+

tiny.ph
=======
The original shortened link is http://tiny.ph/2mCe
In order to access the statistics, they can simply change the url to something like the one below.
http://tiny.ph/2mCe+

tny.im
=======
The original shortened link is http://tny.im/3Bm
In order to access the statistics, they can simply change the url to something like the one below.
http://tny.im/3Bm+

tiny.cc
=======
The original shortened link is http://tiny.cc/xtad8x
In order to access the statistics, they can simply change the url to something like the one below.
http://tiny.cc/xtad8x~

Then again, if there isn’t any means to check the stats of the shortened URL.
Always make sure to use online services like http://longurl.org/ to make sure the shortened url is not redirecting to some malicious url.

I hope that readers will find all the information written here useful.
