The digital landscape has changed significantly since we launched the Go.USA.gov service in 2009. Over the last two years the team looked carefully at the program holistically, taking into consideration the future of the program, the current landscape related to using shortened URLs and alignment with strategic business goals. In early 2022 we made the difficult decision to initiate steps to sunset the service.
Though the Go.USA.gov URL shortener service was retired on September 18, 2022, we wanted to share some of the final statistics on the overall usage of the Go.USA.gov service.
We would like to thank you for your engagement over the past few years and to those who were a part of our launch in 2009.
