i've noticed there's quite a few "shorten your links,get paid" sites popping up and i was just curious if anyone's tried this and gotten paid from it.i know there's a couple others just like it,but this one looks kind of interesting. people seem to be using it a lot on twitter in particular.

Hi scarlet...it's posts like this that make me a little crazy. You see, I have no idea what you are talking about. I feel like such a klutz. I know what Twitter is but for the rest of it, it may as well be a foreign language.

It's not you...it's me. Your explanation still makes no sense. I know what twitter is and I know what a link is. I don't know where you would be posting a link from or to and why you would do this and why would you shorten a link...I've only ever seen short ones ..... and where does getting paid fit in to it all? And how come I don't understand what this is all about??? I feels so stupid. I have asked and asked and no-one will or can explain it to me. Not to worry. No need to reply...it just bugs me every time I see something along these lines.

I just visited the site. Seems people are making money by shortening their links. This is the first time I heard of it. May be I should try. Right now I am going through their site.

I'm thinking of joining. $4 per 1000 visitor seems reasonable. I wonder, where will I get 1000 visitors from.

hmm..probably the best bet is to tack it on a blog or profile somewhere.

It is like linkbux. They will pay you if somebody will visit your link using linkbux shorten links. Never heard about adfly.

Wow, it looks like I am a day (eternity) late and a dollar short, but I'll respond. I've never heard of adfly before and if I did have never tried it, so I'm not sure. However I have been a member of paid-to-read emails and similar sites, network marketing, online surveys, blogging, communities, and mystery shopping for over 10 years now. I now what works and what doesn't, what is a scam and what isn't, what actually pays you (like Mylot) and what doesn't. Good luck, hope you are doing well.

We are four years further and I can tell you Adf.ly is a trust worthy site and a well known url shortener for many people. adfly payed me and other members every month for over 4 years now. If you haven't signed up yet I suggest you do because its just awsome to shrink post and get paid for every visitor to your links.
Earn money for each visitor to your shortened links with adf.ly! Use a URL shortener service that pays.
