In a nutshell; make adf.ly account, shorten some valuable webpage URLs and share them on the web. See money adding up in your account. Good Luck!
Note (before signing up to Adf.ly): Don’t just join Adf.ly for sake of joining it. I have seen many people who sign up and think that they will get rich within an hour, doing nothing.
