So What Happens When You Use Google URL Shortener to Reference a Google Doc?

So What Happens When You Use Google URL Shortener to Reference a Google Doc?  Okay – let me explain….

I know that Google likes to index sites that Google controls.  They even index Google Docs.  It also appears that they index Google URL Shortener pages.  So, what if I took something like Reno Carpet Repair and I mentioned it with a backlink to an article about Reno Carpet Repair ? Would that help the sites ranking?  OR what if I took it a step further and referenced the Google Document in a Google Shortener url like this:  https://goo.gl/LGnwLs ?

So, the question becomes – would any of those methods actually A- get indexed & B- help with ranking?

Seems to me, it should work amazingly well.  But time will tell.  I am doing this on Sept 18,2017.  I will come back  here and report the results shortly.
