What is the best URL shortener to make money?


Making money online is just like building a house. You must start from small concrete bricks. In this blog, besides Moondancing, I will post articles realted to Making money online as a way to keep record of my way in exploring that immense MMO (Making Money Online) World. I begun with Fiverr some months ago and have made some significant profit from it. Then comes AppRedeem, which is really good to earn some extra bucks. Now, I am getting to know another method, it offers you an easy way to share links and a chance to earn money. The method is know as “URL shortener”.

A URL shortener is an online service that people use to shorten their long URLs. So, let’s say you have a long URL like:


You can use an online URL shortener to shorten your link to something like:


There has been a big rise in the use of online URL shorteners: adf.ly, bit.ly, tinyurl.com. Not to mention a powerful service from “The Boss” Google. So which one is the best?

Adf.ly vs Tinyurl.com vs Bit.ly

First advantage, they are all free to use and offer Google Analytics integration and on-site performance monitoring. However, Adfly has stood out because every time someone clicks on your Adfly shortned URL, you will earn some cash. Moreover, Adfly links are even shorter than Tinyurl.com and Bit.ly links, this is because they are rapidly becoming an overpopulated and over used service.

How much money can you make with Adfly?

The amount of money you can make with your Adfly links depends on where the people who click your Adfly links are located.
The average rate of pay is $4.00 per thousand clicks. I know what you are gonna say. $4.00 may sound small, but just think for a second. How many people have internet connection and how many of them use social network such as Facebook? Over 500 million people use Facebook on a daily basis, not to mention Myspace, Twitter.etc. So even if there is only a small portion of Facebook users click on your tiny Adfly links, you could be earning a tidy amount of money. A great way to attract lots of users to your links is to set up a Facebook Group or a Facebook Fan Page. Many of these groups or fan pages have more than a million users – so if you get your thinking cap on, you can make good money very quickly! Updated: Facebook no longer approves adf.ly links, but you can still generate traffic and earn money from other sources.
You can also make money with Adf.ly through a referral program. Adf.ly it is paying you 20% from you referrals for life. The minimum withdraw fee is 5.00$ and it is paid by PayPal and Alertpay. Their interface is very easy to use and very fast. Once you sign up, be sure to read Adfly’s term & conditions. I also recommend visiting the Adfly forum for more great ideas on how to further your Adfly earnings!
Last but not least, please view my adf.ly payment proof to have more confidence in the road ahead! Happy earning!

I earn +-50$ a month, not that much but I don’t do a lot for it either :)

ucube (http://uqu.be/register.php?refid=skull) earns me more but that’s because they allow warez and adult links. Rates are overall lower than with adfly.

I also tried linkbucks but they really pay bad.
