You can make a ton of money utilizing that insane traffic for selling products, affiliate marketing & more.

But we are talking about AdFly here, so we are going to utilize the insane traffic to click on our AdFly links.

How? Let me explain.

Mobile games are becoming popular day by day. Every now and then a new game pops up on App Store & Play Store but still, they manage to get millions of people playing the games.

This means there’s a lot of people playing games every day.

And you can use AdFly to make money in this rapidly growing market.


This is very simple. A lot of mobile gamers visit YouTube to watch the trailer, gameplay, cheats, hacks & mods of their favorite games.

Every now and then a popular game pops up, so there is a lot of room for you to make videos & get an insane view on your videos with ease.

You can make videos about these games and use AdFly links in the description to send them to Game cheats, guides & mods.

Everybody love game cheats & guides which will help them to become a pro player of their favorite game.

In fact, almost every addicted player will be actively searching for game cheats & mods.

And there are already a lot of websites providing game cheats, guides & mods.

You just have to make a good video about the mods, cheats, or guides on how to become a pro player.

Then you can use AdFly short links to refer to those sites where they can find the game hacks or mods. So, you just have to copy the links & shrink them using AdFly & use them on YouTube’s description.

But don’t limit your mind to games only. You can use AdFly for any kind of video which refers the viewers to go to an external link.

There’s no limit you can use this to make money from AdFly.

Websites with Downloadable Contents + AdFly.

Make Money With AdFly Downloads Site

One of the best ways, you can make money using AdFly is by making a website with downloadable content like e-books, arts, themes & so on.

You can monetize download sites with AdFly using two ways which are explained below:

Pop-up Ads

AdFly also Pop up and pop-under ads. When a visitor lands on a page or clicks on the contents of the pages, pop ads start showing up.

On a download site, a user has to click here and there to download the content they want.

So, they will see a lot of pop ads which will result in maximum earnings.

There are a lot of downloads sites out there that are making tons of money through pop ads on download sites.

You can also start your own site and monetize it through AdFly pop ads.

If you want a complete course on how to start and monetize a downloads site, let me know in the comments.

AdFly Links

On a downloads site, you can redirect your visitors to 3 – 4 different pages before allowing them the actual content.

And use AdFly short links to redirect them to different pages.

If you are providing the best stuff for free, then your visitors won’t mind clicking on different AdFly links before downloading the content for free.

Suppose you have 1000 visitors daily, if all of them downloaded the content after visiting 3 – 4 AdFly links, then that’s easy $10 – $30 income for you.

And don’t forget the pop ads will bring in more revenue.

You just have to think in a creative way and make your own twist on this method to increase your earnings even more.

Note: I suggest making your own content for the downloads sites. And I don’t recommend you to use illegal or pirated content while making a website with downloadable content which might get you in trouble.

You can create your own products like video game guides, digital arts, website themes & widgets, and so on.

Forums + AdFly.

AdFly Forum Method

There are literally millions of forums. And millions of people actively using forums to discuss a subject matter of their interest.

Every day thousands of people ask questions & thousands of people answer them.

You can also use forums to get clicks on your AdFly links by answering questions and referring people to a legit source for more information they need.

You need to write a brief and clear answer and at the end of the answer use your AdFly links to refer people for more information and if your answer looks promising, they won’t hesitate to click on the links you provided as a reference.

But keep in mind that not all forums allow you to add links to new members. Most of the forums will ban you if you spam it.

The best way to reduce your chance of getting banned is to provide value with quality & informative answers & discussions.

When you have a reputation on the forums then, you can add AdFly links at the end of your answers.

Don’t think of spamming the same forums with AdFly every day. There are thousands of forums, so you can take a rest from one forum for a week & move on to the next one.

This way you will be able to promote your AdFly links from time to time & still not get banned.

The best part about this method?

Most of the forum gets tons of traffic from Search engines and your AdFly links will be forever on the forums and over time you will keep making money from link seven if you stop posting.

So, you can have a passive income over the years. Always try to add value to the forum & the mods of the forums will not delete your answers or ban you so that you can keep getting clicks on those links.

AdFly + Social Media

AdFly Social Media Method

A few years back, you could directly share your AdFly links on Social media.

People were making good money sharing AdFly links directly on Facebook & Twitter.

It was easier to make money as you had only share links everywhere on social media.

Basically spamming the social media with ugly AdFly links.

But now, things have changed.

You cannot share your AdFly links on FaceBook and most of the other social media.

Facebook now detects spam links and removes them within few seconds.

So, It’s almost impossible to make money with AdFly links on Facebook and other social media.

Is this the end of The good old AdFly + Facebook Method?

Probably not!

Now here’s how to do it:

Start a blog and start writing about trending topics.

If you can write a lot of articles on what’s happening in the world quickly, then you can share the articles on Facebook and get tons of traffic.

Then, you can put AdFly pop-under ads on your blog. So when a visitor lands on your site, they will get a pop-under ad and you will make some revenue.

Another way, I figured out is putting AdFly links on a hyperlink. ( Read also: Put Your AdFly Links here )

Bottom line:

If you cannot share links directly on social media, then you can drive traffic to your blog and monetize those traffic with AdFly links.


AdFly is one of the oldest link shortening networks and thousands of their active members receive their payment on time. So, you can arguably say that this is a legit ad network.

You can use it to make some spare income or even some side income if you work hard on these methods I’ve mentioned above.

Just like any other newbie on the IM journey, I started with these AdFly methods, and when I made some money I moved on to better projects to work on.

You can work on this network and make some money but don’t dream of making thousands of dollars using AdFly.

I suggest you try out AdFly if you want to make some dollars and use it on other projects.

If you want to earn passive income, then I highly recommend joining Wealthy Affiliate. It’s free to join with a lot of high-quality training which will help you to make passive online income.
