3. Short Links

As the name suggests you have to shorten the links. But how do shortening of the link make money? The shortening of the link does not give you money but the websites which shorten your link give you money. Now the question is Why would they give you money for shortening your link.

Let us understand it properly.

Usually, the link of any website is very much longer. That is not even attractive. So if you want to shorten your link then you need a medium to do so. So there are several websites to do so like Adshrink, bit.ly, Linkvertise etc.

When you use their website to shorten your link then they shorten your link and add their website name in your link. For example, if you are using bit.ly then the shortened link would look like

You can see the difference. You can even make it shorter. The yellow-colored part is editable.

How Does It Work?

When anyone clicks on the shortened link then first they are directed to an advertisement and then the website appears after skipping the ad.

So before visiting the page user have to watch an advertisement. If you have good organic traffic then you can put shortened links there to earn money online. Too much advertisement makes the users uncomfortable and your traffic may reduce.
