With the passage of time, URL shortners have gained popularity. More and more people are joining hundreds of different shortners and some of them are even earning up to $1000 per month. After some deep research on this topic, I found out that some publishers have earned thousands of dollars with these services while others are stuck with just a few cents in their wallets. The link shortner services work differently for different people. The algorithm is the same but the geographical factors make a great impact on the earnings of every individual. People who attract traffic from high income countries earn more than the people who attract traffic from low income countries. This is one reason why some people are so happy with the results while others feel betrayed. Today I'm going to talk about the famous URL shortner website, Adf.ly and I'm going to write down the complete details of this service. So let's begin.

Adf.ly is one of the oldest and most popular URL shortner. The company pays you for almost every click you receive on the shortened URL but this does not mean that you can trick them. Many accounts get banned every year for using fake traffic from bots and traffic exchange websites. The company treats its loyal members with respect and rewards but people who disrespect policies of adf.ly get banned immediately. Adf.ly is just like Goo.gl and bitly but the difference is that they pay you for sharing their shortened links. An advertisement is displayed for five seconds whenever someone clicks on your shared link and then the visitor is redirected to the desired destination. Within 6 seconds you earn money for sharing links. Great, Isn't it?!
How much can you earn?
Adf.ly pays you per 1000 impressions. You can earn up to $10 per thousand views. It depends on the geographical location of your visitors.

This is because majority of advertisers are from high income countries that are willing to pay more for targeted audience. If you have visitors mainly from Asia, you will earn between $0.40-$3.5 per thousand ad views. It may seem less but imagine how much you can earn if you attract millions of views.
