    Some shorteners are provided by some bigger company which collects traffic stats on the urls, so they're not making money from the shortener service directly.

    Bit.ly sells its stats such as how many people when to which site, and from where. Other sites lead people to a page that is 90% iframe of the desired URL and on the top of the page, there are ads.

    Adfly pays the publisher $4/1000 views, but charges $5/1000 views.
