I just published an AdFly review and some things came to mind that I want to address in this article.
There’s no doubt that AdFly is still booming after the many years it’s been online for and there are thousands of people making money with it.
Because let’s face it, if no one was spending money and no one was shortening links, nothing would be happening and it would just die down rather quickly.
But it seems that it’s still a viable opportunity to make money considering they pay on time and don’t have any history of scamming people.
These 2 traits alone are good to see in an online business opportunity and the reason why I wanted to discuss the best ways to making money with AdFly.
Enjoy and I hope you make a good passive income with it!
What You’ll Get Out of this Article
If you search up “how to make money with AdFly” on Google, you’ll find people telling you to shorten links and paste them to various websites.
Of course that’s how you make money, but that’s not enough detail!
They don’t tell you which websites to paste your link to, how to get traffic or how to make the most money out of your efforts.
Because let’s face it, most who pursue something like this will spam their links and get banned because spamming is against their ToS.
The approach I will be taking is in line with their Terms of Service which will ultimately allow you to make money for years to come.
That’s why in this article you will discover step-by-step methods that have proven to make money so you’re not left still scratching your head wondering why you can’t even make your first couple of dollars on the internet.
Read through these methods below, then choose which one you like the most.
Method #1: The Trending Method
The easiest and quickest way to find what people are searching for TODAY is to go straight to the horses mouth (Google).
Here’s some earnings I personally received using the exact method I’m about to teach you and it literally took only a few minutes work.
I used this technique when I first started with AdFly and made a decent amount of money with it.
However, keep in mind that you’ll see some earnings within the first day but it’ll soon die down after a couple days.
The magic happens when you have thousands of these specially-positioned links scattered around popular articles on the internet which are getting daily traffic.
That’s why you shouldn’t mistake this for an instant solution to your financial problems but rather a long-term strategy with initial dollars made within the first 24 hours.
Step 1: Find what searches are trending and getting lots of traffic
Go to trends.google.com and you’ll find exactly what is going on in the world of the internet.
At the time of writing this article, a lot of people are searching for “world cup” as the rugby world cup is currently in progress.
Step 2: Find a popular article
Search up your keyword that people are searching up on google news and find an article that sounds interesting and better than the rest.
Controversial is good but curiosity is also great if you cannot find controversial.
For this example I have chosen “Rugby World Cup: Why the Wallabies must give youth a chance in Japan“.
This makes people curious to see WHY they’re claiming this and big rugby fans will click it to find out more.
Step 3: Copy the URL and shorten the link
This will give you a shortened link that looks like this: http://fainbory.com/8THt
Step 4: Copy that link and paste it to other news websites
Something I want to emphasize here and you should always remember is DO NOT SPAM.
The concept of copy and pasting something with link shortening websites does not mean spam your links anywhere and everywhere.
Doing this will put you on the fast track to a permanent ban because it is against AdFlys Terms of Service.
So the best way to paste without spamming is to add a little snippet/comment before placing your link.
For example: I went to a news website called “France chase Ronan O’Gara for Rugby World Cup” and said in the comments section: I can’t believe they said Robinson isn’t a great ball carrier >add your AdFly link<.
This is a great way to get clicks because you’re talking to highly targeted traffic as they are all loyal rugby fans and chances are they know who you’re talking about.
Do this everyday with different keywords while keeping the readers curious on what’s on the other side of your link.
The passive income flow you’re chasing will soon come as long as you stay consistent and don’t give up after a few days.
Method #2 Create YouTube Videos
What do we need to make money? Traffic.
And what is YouTube? The second largest search engine in the world!
Google has the most and YouTube has the second most.
We can exploit the second largest search engine in the world by creating videos and monetizing them.
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Use an established YouTube channel (at least 5000 subscribers)
The reason I say you should have an established YouTube channel with a good number of subscribers who watch your content often is because this method will take too long to build up otherwise.
If you don’t have a YouTube channel and no subscribers, skip this step now and move on to the next method, otherwise keep reading.
Step 2: Add AdFly links to your new videos
With every new video you post, make sure the content is relevant to your audience and that your AdFly links are relevant to the content on your video.
For example: If you teach basketball training, tell your audience at the end of the video that you have another video they need to see and they need to click the link in the description to see it.
Of course this link will be a shortened URL to the web page you promised beforehand.
Each time someone clicks that link, you make money.
Now imagine having tens of thousands of views to your YouTube videos per day, that is thousands of clicks to your AdFly links and a few dollars per day passive income.
It is a numbers game.
The more people you can get to click your shortened links everyday, no matter what method you use, you make more money.
A word of caution: Please do not add AdFly links to your current videos already uploaded. You haven’t mentioned anything about your links in the video so you’ll be wasting your time, no one will click those old links and you’ll just get discouraged and quit too early.
Method #3: Blog Commenting
Blog commenting is still alive and will probably never die.
Google favors websites with comments so it makes sense that website owners (like myself) are chasing comments left, right and center to get better rankings.
If you’re an AdFly publisher, you need to find popular blogs receiving thousands of visitors per day and publish your comments to them.
Of course while keeping in mind that you should not spam your links whatsoever.
Every link you post has to add curiosity to everyone that reads your comment and they’ll want to click to see more.
Don’t comment just to comment.
The aim with this method is to talk about the article you just read, add value by talking about something you read inside the article, and THEN it’s time to add your link.
I’ll explain step-by-step so you get a better understanding of how it all plays out 🙂
Step 1: Choose a niche
Choosing a niche is a super simple process and I recommend something you can talk about to your friends for hours.
It should be a niche that you’re really interested in and know a lot about, that way you won’t find it hard adding value to the comment section.
For this example I’m going to go with the building muscle niche (because I know a lot about it).
Step 2: Find websites that receives lots of traffic
Search up something on Google that you know a lot about.
Because I’m going with the building muscle niche, I’m going to search up “how to build muscle”.
The first result is usually the best one so click on the top result.
Copy the link and shorten it with AdFly.
This is your link that you will be pasting to other websites with similar content.
Step 3: Paste your link
You know how I just searched up “how to build muscle” and clicked on the first result?
Well now it’s time to click on the rest of the results on the first page, which is 10 websites.
Read the article, go to the comment section, talk about the article you just read, add some value and then add your AdFly link at the end.
Here’s what I would write:
Wow! I’ve been building muscle for many years now and still didn’t know that water was helpful when building muscle but according to this article, it is! I just stay consistent and always go hard every time I’m in the gym, the results just come. These are my favorite tips on building muscle: >insert your AdFly link<.
See what I did there? Talked about the article, added value and then made them curious so they would click my link.
This has better chances of getting accepted by webmasters and not being banned by AdFly.
It’s got more chance of making you money than if you wrote “Wow, I just found the best ways to build muscle >AdFly link<“.
That won’t get you anywhere and I can almost guarantee it.
Step 4: Find more results
Find more results but keep using that same link.
You could use similar keywords that have similar content so you can still use the same link.
For the muscle building article I was sharing, I could also search up: “ways to build muscle”, “ways to get shredded”, “how to get big shoulders”, “how to get big legs”, etc.
The possibilities are endless and the more you rinse and repeat this method, the more links you have getting accepted on various websites receiving lots of traffic and overtime the passive income flow will get larger and larger.
A word of caution: Remember to never spam your links because that’s only going to get you banned. Your comments probably won’t get accepted! Plus adding value is going to give you more credibility and people are more likely to click on your links and make you money!

Referrals (hands down the best)
Getting referrals is hands down the best way to make money with AdFly thanks to their 20% earnings for life!
This means you receive 20% of what they earn without doing a single thing, just for bringing them into the system.
However, keep in mind that it is not an easy method but when you can find ways to get referrals, you will create a passive income flow that’ll pay you for months and even years to come.
That’s the beauty of the referral system.
But it is not easy to get referrals so keep that in mind if you think you’re going to invite your friends and family on social media and laugh all the way to the bank.
No, this method requires a long-term strategy and that’s why getting referrals is last on my list.
It is the biggest money maker on AdFly but also the hardest.
Below you will find some of the best ways to get referrals with AdFly.
- Create an AdFly review, review other link-shortening websites and send them to your AdFly review as a recommendation
- Have banners on your website. This’ll work if you’re receiving daily traffic
- Periodically post your link with a caption to all your social medias at least 2x a day
- Create an e-book on making money with AdFly, sprinkle your referral link throughout the e-book and give it away completely free to anyone and everyone. The best places are make money online forums, torrent sites and Q&A, as long as your e-book solves a specific problem, you can make a lot of money this way
- Send out an email blast…send them out frequently for best results
- Last but not least, promote, promote and promote some more. No one’s going to sign up under you if they can’t see your link! Again, steer clear from spamming and aim to provide value before posting your referral link, that’s the secret to getting high amounts of referrals. No one likes a spammer
Do Not Use Bots
One way of getting banned as fast as possible is by not following their Terms of Service.
I’ve emphasized that you shouldn’t spam your links because you’ll only get banned, and there’s another way to get banned instantly.
It is the use of bots.
Using bots to exploit the system is one of the worst things you could do.
Not only are your earnings going to be wasted but so will your time, and that is an invaluable tool that you need to use preciously and wisely.
Is AdFly Allowed on Facebook?
The answer is no, but there are ways around it.
Facebook has banned the use of many paid link sharing websites for many years now and other social media giants are following in their footsteps (Twitter has also stopped the act of sharing AdFly links).
But that doesn’t mean you can’t get around this censorship and still make money 🙂
You’ll have to mask your links using Bitly before posting them.
And fortunately there is still time to make a lot of money off of these two social media giants.
How AdFly Pays You
In order to receive your earnings, you need to reach a minimum amount of $5.
They pay via PayPal and Payoneer, however, Payoneer requires a $10 withdrawal amount if you choose this as your payment method.
Earnings are paid out at the end of each month but offer daily payouts if you reach the requirements for it.
The requirements are: have been paid at least once, have not changed your payment details in the last 72 hours and have an account more than 1 month old.
The daily payout option is amazing and allows you to receive your earnings as quickly as possible.
Is AdFly Really Worth It?
AdFly is real and legitimate as they get and I have no qualms regarding the legitimacy of it.
But the real question is, is it worth getting involved with AdFly, implementing the steps and making money?
To be completely honest with you, it will take an EXTREMELY long time to make a decent passive income flow using AdFly. I’m talking like 1-2 years.
It’s not going to replace your day job and it may be possible to after 5 years of hard work, but there are better alternatives that can make more money a lot faster!
AdFly is good for getting your feet in the internet marketing waters and to make your first few dollars online.
Because lets face it, making money online is hard and the quicker you see money being made, the more likely you’re going to keep trying because you enjoy seeing the numbers move up.
So AdFly isn’t a complete waste of time but it is a massive motivation boost when you see numbers next to that dollar sign!
Cheers for reading this article and I hope you have a great day.
