    Everyday new small and medium-size websites devoted to url shortening are launching. The main source of making money is to put a banner on the iframe; but this is against the TOS of most ad serving companies like AdSense. What is the best way to have a money making banner (ad) ?

    Not sure if there's really a way to monetize them, unless you were to make it a free basic service with premium accounts that have more advanced features... like I'm doing with mine... let me know if you find something else that works :)

    Do you really sell premium accounts in this highly competitive market. I mean there are lots of websites offering the same service. Why someone should pay for service from a new website?

    Do you honestly believe you can go up against any of the current URL shortening giants? I know when i need a URL shortened i use tinyurl and nothing else.

    URL shortening is not that profitable, you gotta beat industry heavy-weight first, you can offer some $$$ in return For using URL services at start!

    If some of you people, like OP considers that $30 per month are money..than you are so wrong. Move to CPA. But if you really like this domain, well, you're late anyway in the industry
