    I have about 10k of click a day with short URLs. I already have a page with ads between the short URL and the long URL. I am looking for a way to monetize once they are on the long URL. The short URL redirects after 11 seconds on the ad page. I was looking at skimlinks but they won't approve any of my sites.

    Thanks

    I'll assume that you have basic html and css knowledge. Just redirect them to a page of yours where you'll have an iframe like this:

    Code:
    <iframe src="THE LONG URL"></iframe>
    and you can add some css to expand it to take the 100% of width and height of the browser window. And then add a <div> with your ads inside and set the div css properties to position: absolute; or position:fixed; and keep playing with the left, right, top, bottom values.

    That's how I'd do it.

    edit: I made a quick example, check it out here: http://jsfiddle.net/z4mSn/1/

    That would work but I would, but the ads are too obvious I would like to be able to inlay ads into the site so they look like they are suppose to be there. Like instead of sending them to the long url I would send them to http//ad-service-url/?id=123&url=long-url and they inlay ads on the site.

    That won't be possible since javascript won't let you modify the content of an iframe. I've been there.
