Br.st Throws Its Hat Into The URL Shortner Ring

br.st! is a service of Brinkster (a web hosting company). With br.st! you can take a long URL, shorten it and then track the traffic to it. Brinkster thinks we need another URL shortner thats pretty much saturated. Similar to many of its competitors br.st offers statistics (in your own timezone) about your links, including number of clicks, referrers, and origin (country of region) of all the clicks. Bit.ly which is one of the current leaders offers all of these analytics as well. Additionally, br.st filters submitted links through malware filters. Br.st service lets you post to over 10 social networks and sites including Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and Digg and will soon offer google analytics. The site also offers bookmarklets to add to your toolbar. And br.st has opened up its API. Br.st will also offer image and filer sharing (similar to yFrog or TwiPic) and will let you see detailed stats on these links. Though full of useful features, Br.st is entering a space thats inundated competitors and its a dog eat dog world out there in the URL shortening field. It seems that every week, theres a new URL shortner out on the market. Tweetmeme just debuted its own URL shortening service, Retwet.me. of course, one URL Tr.im, has dropped out of the race. And recently, RoyalPingdom conducted a study on which URL shortener was the fastest and Ow.ly and Bit.ly came out on top. Website... Br.st
