What is Adfly?

Adfly is a URL shortener that rewards the publishers of the shortened links by offering 50% of the advertising revenue for every click their readers make.

After the reader has clicked the link they will be shown an ad for 5 seconds and can then proceed to the target URL.

Waiting 5 seconds is a small price to pay if the link is genuine, and why shouldn’t you be rewarded for your efforts.

How Does Adfly Work?

Like all link shorteners, Adfly is designed to redirect a long URL with a shorter one to help minimize the mistakes made when transcribing long URLS.

However, Adfly imagined an opportunity during the URL redirection to value add the link and include a small ad that appears before the target URL is reached.

And after an ad is shown, the advertiser play for the click and you earn 50% of the revenue.

Note: These ads can be skipped and there are actually Adfly Skipper plugin’s that enable people to skip the ads completely.

However, Adfly wasn’t designed to be scam but some people intentionally use it as click bait, which hurts the rest of us wanting to use it for good and earn a little extra money along the way.

How to Make Money with Adfly

Making money with Adfly is as easy as sharing a link, but not all people are going to click on an Adfly shortened link, given it’s been around for a while and a lot of people know what it does.

I’d recommend using one of the alternative Adfly Domain Extensions when generating Adfly links, to disguise them better.

Adfly Domain Extensions

In the Adfly Admin screen, simply select the drop-down list and choose a different domain extension like or to disguise your links better.

Of course, if you aren’t just creating click-bait then you might not have as much reason to take these extra steps.

Adfly might not be suitable for all situations, and I wouldn’t recommend it for links you share with friends, although the Advertising is tested for malware and virus so it should be safe.

The only Adfly ads I’ve seen with Adfly have been legit companies that I already know, so perhaps they are using Ad retargeting.

The Adfly Pay Rates are quite good if you’ve found an opportunity for a number of clicks, but it does take 1000 clicks to earn $5-$10.

That said some of the top Adfly users are making over $100 day, depending on the country of origin. So it’s worth investigating if you need the money.

The best places to share links are on your website, forums, Facebook, Quora, Twitter and other social media platforms.

But most of all don’t be scammer as this hurts all the genuine people wanting to make money online from Adfly.

Adfly Referral Program

Yes, there is an Adfly Referral Program and when you join you can earn 20% of the money your referrals make, which is a nice little income if you’ve got an army of Adfly link sharers you’ve signed up to the network.

Here’s my referral link if you want to join the Adfly network –


With a few carefully placed links, you could easily make a few dollars every day although the top earners are likely to be using click-bait tactics to make their money.

The choice is really yours on how to make money online with Adfly, but I recommend the right way, as scammers just ruin it for everyone else.
