    Hi this is my first post, been on here for a few weeks reading so hope I dont break any rules or anything and that what I am about to say hasnt been said by someone else! I am not affiliated with any of these services, and im sure you can modify this for your own needs.

    Basically what happens is when I make a post to my blog it automatically gets placed in twitter with a shortened link by Adf ly who pay up to $4 for each 1000 links clicked. So if you have a lot of followers clicking your links this will hopefully give you a new income source.

    I set it up using dlvr it (which is like feedburner but automatically uses your blog posts categorys as hashtags which I believe is very important).

    To set this up go to adf ly and click on tools > API documentation and copy the API url, then on dlvr it you need to go to "short links" and add a custom shortener and create one for Adf ly, paste in this url but change the:
    somewebsite to (at symbol)URL(at symbol)
    at the end of the link.

    Now thats taken care of go to the Deliverys tab on dlvr it and add destinations for your feed, so in this case add twitter. Now to get the automatic hashtags click the edit twitter destination option and go to the advanced tab and setup the auto hashtag placement, I have set mine to appear at the end of the tweet and to a maximum of three.

    dlvr it checks for new posts in your feed every 15 minutes but you can also just hit the refresh feed option if you want to see the results immediatly.

    If I have missed anything out it shouldnt be too hard to work out, and hope it helps someone!

    Edit: had to edit my post as I cant post links :(

    For this to work you gotta have a Twitter account with lots of followers, right? Otherwise it doesn't.

    I have twitter account with about 36 followers and I make around $5 a day, lol. Still playing around with this, but thinking of getting TweetAttax to help me out.

    My understanding was that it takes 1000 US visitors to reach the $4 range. How do you convert 36 followers into 1000 visits?

    When I try placing the hashtag after the content and setting the # of hashtags to 1, it tells me "unable to create destination"

    EDIT: After I reauthorized the token, it worked perfectly.

    Very nice man. I'm glad to know about this. I was using SocialOomph (recommended by crashed challenge) every time I made a new post to schedule tweets and stuff. This is much better.

    its working good but if anyone is still using this may want to help me out.
    When it autotweets on my behalf and when i click the dlvr.it link it redirects me to the main link, adfly doesn't some here in between, so the user goes like this.

    my tweet>dlvr.it link>the main page.

    Whats the use of api key of adfly??
    i have done exact things stated in OP.
    let me know if anyone can get me throught this.
