    URL Shortners, especially well known ones like those 3, won't do harm to your site. Now, blasting your site with tens of thousands of URL shortners of questionable quality could probably hurt your site. Social media almost always shortens links by default.

    I'm not sure which Analytics package you're using, but that's fairly typical. You should browse to see if there are other data types you can look for like "source" etc. It won't hurt your site though, it'll just make figuring out where your traffic is coming from a bit harder.

    I would suggest you learn more about UTM parameters. You add those to an URL before shortening and it'll help remove the mystery of where the visitor came from. :smile:
