Back in 2010 when I started making money online, Adfly was a popular site for newbies. You could make $5-$10 per day using Adfly, but that was 10 years ago, and now I tried Adf.ly again, so before you start working with Adf.ly read this article.
What is Adf.ly?
Adfly is an advertising platform that allows you to make a short version of any link from the internet and if you post that link somewhere, and visitors click on that shortened link you will get paid by Adfly.
It seems complicated but it’s really not, it’s one of the most popular money-making methods for newbies.
Adfly is free to join and free to work for everyone, so you can just go and register your account right now.
So when you register on Adf.ly you will be able to create a short link for any link you want.
Adfly will generate a short link for you, link will look something like this: “www.adf.ly/gf4”.
Basically the site will give you this link and you just copy that link and put it on your website, send it to your friends, post it on Facebook, post it on some forums and get visitors through your link.
If someone clicks on that link Adfly will redirect them to the Adf.ly page with a sponsored ad and they will have to wait for 5 seconds before they can skip that page and get to the real website.
This is how you make your money, once your visitor skips Adf.ly 5 seconds ad and once they land on your real page you will get your money.
How Much Money Can You Make With Adf.ly
It’s not much, even for newbies this is not a lot of money, you will get on average $0.0040 – $0.05 per click.
You will make $1-$3 per 1000 clicks, on average, so you would need 6000+ clicks in order to make $6-$15 every day.
If you can get a lot of clicks it’s great, that’s $180-$450 per month and you can use your Adf.ly income to fund some other online projects, but if you don’t have some large Facebook/Twitter/Reddit group, or a lot of friends, it’s really hard to get more than 500 clicks per day.
Once you post your link on a forum, blog comment, Reddit, Twitter, it’s active forever, for example, I posted some Adf.ly links on a few car forums 4 years ago, and links are still active even after all this time I am getting a few clicks every day.
I don’t like the fact that you need to spend 3-4 hours to make just a few bucks from this site.
Adf.ly mail support is 1/10, you will never get your ticket answered, at least for 2 weeks, and sometimes they don’t even answer, ever.
Ads or sponsored pages on Adf.ly will sometimes contain some naked scenes, gambling adverts.. so these ads are not really 100% safe for kids.
Sometimes they will give you really bad click prices like $0,0010 per click (it’s not always the case tho).
Should You Start Working with Adf.ly
I would not recommend you this site if you have a goal to make more than $5 per day, because the first few days will get you only $0.5-$2 per day, especially without large groups, Youtube videos, or without a lot of friends on Facebook and Twitter.
You can try a few other methods from my blog for newbies:
Don’t get me wrong, you can still make some money using Adf.ly, but for me, it’s really pointless to spend 5 hours every day only to make $5 per day in the end, and you are lucky if you even get those $5 every day because it’s unstable.
If you have some plan, some methods to make some big money using Adfly, go for it, try, if you fail try some other methods.

You can use Adfly as your side method, while you work on some better paying method, you can use Adfly to cover your costs.
I will repeat this again, you won’t be able to make anything more than $1 per day if you don’t have groups, pages and friends who will click on your links.
