Welcome to Adf.ly Basics.
If you are new to Adf.ly or just need some tips in order to help boost your Adf.ly earnings, you have come to the right place. Adf.ly is a link shortening service similar to tinyurl.com which shortens a link such as http://buxlister.com into http://adf.ly/1cyYt4.
This service not only makes it easier for you to post your links, but also pays you for everyone that clicks on it. Currently Adf.ly pays up to $.050 to $4.00 for 1000 clicks of your link depends where country the user live.
You maybe thinking “$.050 that’s only pennies”, or “how can I ever get 1000 clicks on my links.” I’ll address those 2 questions below.
Earning pennies isn’t much money?

1000 clicks? Sounds impossible!
The main concern with most everyone using Adf.ly is TRAFFIC, and how to get more traffic to click on their links. This is always a complicated question to answer because as everyone knows, it’s not easy to generate your own traffic without a lot of long, hard work. BUT there are ways where you can USE traffic from other sources. Another thing to consider is that Adf.ly pays you for up to 5 visits from the SAME PERSON or IP Address. This means that if you have 5 links and the person clicks on all of them, you will get paid for all 5 visits! So, basically, you will not need 1000 people to visit your links as long as you have multiple links for your visitor to click, thus you will need less people to reach that 1000 clicks. I will list below, several ways to use traffic from other sources to help increase clicks to your Adf.ly links.
This is probably the most well-known method to generate Adf.ly traffic. The easiest method would be to find popular videos that are receiving a lot of views on Youtube. Download the videos to your computer using one of the many free Youtube downloading sites or software. Re-upload the videos to your own Youtube account and title it similarly, or as close as possible to the original up loaders title. This method will get you views for your links posted below the clips, but I will go one step further to help you get the maximum amount of views.
Step 1. Choose 3-4 videos in a certain genre (example: Breaking News). Download these videos and then re-upload them to your Youtube account, BUT, set only one of those videos to “public”, the others set them to “unlisted”. The reason for this is that if ALL of your videos are “public”, all one has to do is to check out your channel page and they can watch all of your videos without having to click on any Adf.ly links.
Step 2. Create Adf.ly links to all of the “unlisted” videos.
Step 3. Under the “public” video, post a caption like this “Breaking News story #2 etc… and then add your Adf.ly links below the clip. If your “public” video is popular, you will definitely get views on your other videos, which means you will be getting Adf.ly clicks.
Step 4. Rinse and repeat steps 1-3 using different videos from different genre (comedy, fails, songs etc)
Step 5. Now go to your channel page. On the left column you will be able to add all of your Adf.ly links and descriptions. (use the old channel view, the new one sucks IMO)
If you decide to go the Youtube route, don’t just stop with 3-4 videos (one genre). Try and find as many different genre videos to list. If you can generate just 100 clicks from your 3-4 “News” videos a day, you can generate 1000 clicks from 10 different other genres, right?
Another easy method getting traffic from other sources is to post your links on forums, news boards etc. This is pretty self-explanatory and doesn’t need much explaining. Actually you can use our forum to advertise your Adf.ly links or use our member’s blog.
