    Because you are paid 5$ for 1000 US visits. You could monetize that traffic a lot better.

    monetizing shortner may work but giving less revenue. if you have some good creativity and page appeal, it might work as secondary source. Everything is worth a try.

    Linkmaster: I would completely agree with you on this point.

    I've a plan to set-up this as well and already have bought a short domain "link.la". Everything is worth a try :)
