    What is the best url shortener to use? I have 3 links I want to shorten so i can put them in ads. I might as well make a little money too. I would like to have a site that is reliable and actually pays in a decent amount of time. I was using another site, but it took 45 days to get paid.

    Also I would appreciate if anyone had any working blackhat methods using url shorteners. I have other links I could use.

    Thanks

    Here's another question. I used a program in the past for monetizing my links, but for gods sake I can't remember the name of it or where I got it from. It involved entering my link and a daily set of proxies. I also used my hide ip program as well.

    Thanks again.

    Adfoc.us pays better than adfly and pay on time.

    I built a site that shortens links and gives you a control panel and all of that. Works on reddit too.
    For monetizing links I use adfly but I have noticed that people get mad about the redirect advertisement wait time so I just stick with my site.

    Lately, bit.ly has started showing warning messages for clickbank links. Visitors will simply avoid such links. I have started updating all my clickbank links that were shortened using bit.ly. It's better to setup a link shortner on your own domain and have full control rather than rely on other services that you don't have full control on.

    Back to the topic, I guess OP is asking for url shortning service that pays to share links. ****** seems to be the popular one out there. I see those links all the time. Adfoc.us is another one you might want to check.

    If you wish to monetize, I would recommend using AdFly. Although the payment amount is miniscule, I like their service as they are legitimate.

    I tried bit.ly for statistics, but they don't allow affiliate links either. So I just put a go.php file on my server that does a 301 redirect to the affiliate: examplexcom/go/promo-1 => whatever affiliiate url you want.

    Careful with bit.ly ... it is blocked at my work, and probably others as well.

    If you use wordpress, try the redirection plugin. It includes stats, and you don't have to worry about uploading a php file every time you want to add or edit a link.
