Adf.ly is a Url shortner service, which pays you for shorten your links. And when any one visit those links and see advertisements, you get paid for that. You must be familiar with Adf.ly, that’s why you are here to find some tricks about earning with it. I have spent more than one year with Adf.ly and now I can say that I have learned some skills and tricks to get some extra and easy money using Adf.ly. If you don’t have an account then get registered with Adf.ly here.
If you are just shrinking your URLs then it won’t help you. Adf.ly has created an awesome service but they don’t guide their users how to correctly use their service. If you are just sharing your shorten links with some of your friends then I can bet you can hardly make $1 in one month. You need to target large public so you can get handsome income. These are top 3 methods I used, which work for me. I want to share those methods with you.
- Adf.ly With Blogger
- Adf.ly With Youtube
- Adf.ly With Social Networking Websites
Now let me explain these methods one by one. So you can get pros and cons of each method.
1. Adf.ly With Blogger
Creating a Blogger blog is a best way in my opinion. Start a blog about any topic which is demanded too much. The best one is the Download Blog. Software, Movies, Music or E-Books, any thing which need to be downloaded from 3rd party websites. (Don’t use copyrighted material, because if Adf.ly receive any complain, they will gonna ban you).
Lets say, you start a blog and plan to put Mp3 Music on it. So, do it like this:
- Choose good blogger template
- Download Mp3 Music from other websites and upload to File hosting sites like, mediafire or which one is easy for other to download from. (Mediafire is most favorite of all)
- After uploading get the links and Shrink with Adf.ly
- Make posts for Downloading those Mp3 Music and give Adf.ly Shorten URLs there. You can also use “Full Page Script” from Adf.ly, but I will not suggest it.
- Post as much as you can. Keep in Mind Focus on Quality + Quantity, not just one.
- Most of your traffic will be coming from Search engines like Google, and you should try to make them loyal visitors. So, don’t annoy them with lot of ads like Popup, PopUnder etc. An normal quantity of ads could be acceptable, but not too much.
- I will suggest not to use “Website Entry Script“ because it annoys your visitors a lot.
Not in days, but in some weeks and then months you will be having hundreds of posts. You will have lot of Mp3 content available for downloading. Within some months you will be having lot of traffic coming from search engines. Those people will go through Adf.ly shorten links for downloading any of their desired Mp3 music. Keep in mind that visits on Adf.ly shortens links will not equal to your Blog visits. And specially in case when you have lot of other ads on your blog. Your visitor will be lost in any other area or ad and he can’t find download link, so simply they quit.
I have told you that this method is my favorite. The reason behind is that this methods generates almost constant income per day. And this method will surely work for long term. Another great benefit you will get is, of having your own Blog which receive lot of daily traffic and you can monetize this in many other ways.
You are not going to earn much money on the first month because at that time you will not have much content and traffic. So don’t worry and specially don’t lose hope. Its a proven method and it will work if you work with it. Rome was built in a day, so you have to do some hard work and then you will be earning almost 50-100$ per month easily.
2. Adf.ly With YouTube
Using YouTube with Adf.ly is another good way. But in my point of view its not that much useful as the first method of having blogger. In this method you will be going to upload interesting videos on YouTube and put Adf.ly shorten links in the description of every video. So lets discuss it step by step how to do it exactly:
- Create a YouTube Account
- Choose some interesting and useful videos. For example you are working with Cartoon videos. Download different type of interesting Cartoons and upload them to your own Account.
- Shrink a URL of your another uploaded video and put it in the Description of newly uploaded video saying “For more please visit:”. Paste it 2 to 3 times, so it can get attention easily.
- Again upload as much videos as you can. It will create chances of earning more. Don’t use copyrighted videos, or YouTube ban your account and you will be facing problem.
- I have observed that videos such as Hot Scenes from movies or Funny clips etc are having too much views. So you can then too.
- You can also upload Drama serials of TV channels. There are lot of channels on YouTube, who are regularly uploading episodes of different dramas. So, try out these too.
Within days, you will be seeing clicks on your Adf.ly shorten links and your earnings will be start. It will much depends your effort of uploading more and more interesting content, for which viewers want to see more.
Uploading videos is little bit difficult task if you have slow speed internet. So try to make use of little videos of 5 to 10 minutes. Your earning will solely depend on the number and quality of videos you upload.
3. Adf.ly with Social Networking Websites
This method is also useful but it will not work for long term. There are two websites I like most if I will be doing this method. Those are of course Facebook and Twitter. Problem is that Facebook has block Adf.ly links and we can’t share or make any comment with Adf.ly links. But now thats not a problem,because we have got a Method of Posting Adf.ly Links on Facebook. Second is twitter and they allow us to post shorten links without any restriction. So lets talk about both of sites one by one.
- Facebook has a very active detection method in which if you are going to spam in any way, then it will block you from doing that action soon. So try to do some interesting comments some famous pages with Adf.ly shorten link. Also send some messages to any other Facebook users, encourage them to view you link. But don’t do these actions too much, because you will be banned then.
- Facebook will work greatly with you if you have a Fanpage having lot of fans. You can post updates and put shorten links with it. You will surely get lot of views. Here again, don’t try to put too much links because it may cause your fans to unlike your page.
- If you can have more than one Facebook Profiles then you can increase the number of comments and messages having shorten links. But watch out, Facebook spam detector is more sensitive for new and unverified profile.
- Using this method you will views from the very first day. But believe me these views will not be too much to make you happy. Until you have a Fan page having some hundred thousand fans.
- Twitter is a social website having lot of traffic and there are much chances of clicking on any link which you post. Twitter also has a spam protection system, which will detect spam activity and ban you. So keep in mind this, first get lot of followers and then start this activity of tweeting Adf.ly shorten links.
- If you already have lot of followers then share some thing interesting and give shorten urls with it. Keep in mind that spamming is not helpful in any case. If you spam you will not receive more than few views, and your account will also be banned. So try to be original and help others. And they will be automatically helping you in earning money.
There are too much other social networking websites where they don’t have much members. So, there you can easily spam. Try to register there and send private messages to members. But I don’t think it will help much. And also you can try Google Plus. I have not tried it yet, but you can test try with it. You can easily post Adf.ly links there in comments or in status update.
Okay that’s it for now. I will be sharing more tips with you people for earning with Adf.ly. As there are lot more ways to earn with it, you can stay updated with my new posts via Email Subscription. And also don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
