SEO and URL Shortners

I am wanting to do tracking on links which I provide on my blog and was looking at something like bit.ly to do this, but I was wondering if this affects SEO due to all of my crosslinks going to the same domain.

Does anyone know if using url shortening linked content affects SEO?

I think you will find this article interesting:

Looks like the jury is still out on this though. As a user of a website however, I do not trust shortened links (except on Twitter where they are common).

  • good point, I'm a bit wary of them as well. Perhaps i should just make it happen with some javascript or something.
