At last AdFly sent me my payments last week 🙂 . I run a freeware blog where I provide downloads of freeware and shareware and decided to try AdFly over there. The blog receives decent traffic and in this review, I am going to share what I am experiencing with AdF.ly.
If you are new to AdFly and don’t know much about it, then here is how AdFly works. AdFly is a URL shortening service which pays you when visitors visit your shortened links. For example if you run a software downloading blog, then you can monetize it with AdFly by shortening the file download links. When you will shorten the download links and place on your blog, visitors will be first taken to an advertisement page and from there, they will be guided to original download link. So if you are running a software downloading blog with decent traffic, then you can earn good with AdFly.
Although AdFly is a legitimate service and really pays but their payout rates didn’t satisfy me. You hardly earn a USD for around 2000 visits to your links from US. For other countries, the rates are worst. i.e. if your blog’s visitors are coming from Pakistan and India, then you will need to receive 5000 to 8000 visitors to your shortened links to earn $1 🙁
As I said earlier that my blog receives decent traffic, so I earned $17 over past two months and AdFly sent my payments last week. Here is the payment proof.
My Recommendation: Although AdFly pays little, still it is among highest paying services of its kind. There are many other URL shortening services too along with AdFly will earn good for you if your blog receives good traffic. So shorten your link with AdFly and send your blog visitors to your downloads through the shortened links to earn some extra cash along with Pay Per Install networks that pay very decent and you must be using any PPI network if you are running a software download blog or website.
