The Easy Way to Make Money |

Earning money in the initial days of blogging can be tough. You don’t have the traffic and there’s still a lot to do to make people visit your site which takes time.

But there are a few ways that allow you to give a kick start and make some cents (which will eventually sum up to a dollar). One of the easy ways to make money is using

How does it work?

It allows you to shrink the internal and external links that you use in your posts and will earn you money when a visitor clicks on it. It initially shows up an ad that lasts for 5 seconds and then the visitor will have the option to continue to the intended destination. Click here to see what this looks like.

You can also share your shortened links to social networking sites. This gives them the maximum exposure and increases your earnings.

Another thing that I like about LinkShrink is that it doesn’t need any space on your site unlike AdSense.

Payout Rates  

You can earn from $0.48 to $8.38 for every 1000 clicks depending on the country the visitor is from which means there’s a huge potential once you know where and how you can use these to make the most of it.

The payouts are updated on a daily basis depending on how much the advertisers are willing to pay for your traffic.


The minimum balance that you should have to request a payment is $5. You can request a withdrawal via PayPal, Payza, or Bitcoin. It may take 3-5 days to process the payment.

The one reason they use Payza and Bitcoin too is to make sure people from no country is left behind. So, even if PayPal is blocked in your country, you can use either of the other two methods.

Will this affect site’s Google Rankings?

The above question pops up in my mind every time I try some new ad network and so, I made sure I get the answer before telling you guys about it or using it myself for that matter.

LinkShrink is an external ad (unlike a banner), so, it doesn’t affect your site’s Google rankings.

How to make visitors not hate you for this?

To be frank, no one likes to see ads but running a blog or a website needs finance and a lot of effort. Little earnings like this keep us motivated and allow us to share quality content.

Visitors may not like ads popping up every time they click on a link and can even leave your site but that’s when your smartness comes into the picture. You should wisely use this and not shrink all the links in a post.

You can also put a notice on the website that informs visitors about the ads so that they don’t freak out. I’ve always felt that this is a better approach and people will understand.


LinkShrink is absolutely free to join. So, go ahead and give it a try. It’s totally worth it.

  1. I am currently starting my Wealthy Affiliate adventures. I am enjoying every step of this program! I have learned so much! Thanks for the great advice.

  2. I have never heard of LinkShrink so I’ll have to check it out. I tend to be afraid of new things like this so admittedly it makes me a bit nervous, but you make it sound okay. Thanks for the idea and I’ll give it a try.

    1. Hi Maria,

      I can relate to how you feel. That’s why I did my research before trying it out.
      It’s definitely worth a try. You are welcome to share how you liked it. 🙂


  3. Hi,
    Thanks for the article. I had never heard of linkshrink before. It sounds like it could be a good alternative to google adsense. I’m going to have to check it out.

  4. This is nice brother. Just right on time as I am researching on more ways to monetize my blog. Your article paved way for a new plan I had in mind. Thanks for this. very helpful.


  5. Thanks for sharing the info. Pop ups aren’t bad and I think its a great idea to let your audience know they are there and explaining to them the importance of having them. I’ll have to check shrink links out and maybe sign up and put one on my site. Thanks for the awesome info!

    1. Hi Mike,

      You get to see pop-ups almost on every site these days but letting your visitors know makes the difference.
      I’m sure you will like the way it works. Let us know.


  6. This new kind of advertisement is much better than having Adwords throughout your content. An occasional popup is not hard to deal with as long as once clicked they go away. Adwords, on the other hand, are always there making some content hard to digest. I think this new kind of advertisements is welcomed. The income earned is very low, but so is Adwords. It is a refreshing idea.

    1. Hi Kenneth,

      Indeed. The one thing I really like about LinkShrink is that you can share these link over your social network and maximize your earnings.
      Thank you for stopping by and putting across your views.


  7. Good idea but I didn’t like the example I saw. It takes away from my website seems like. The ads are all random and all over the place. Now if you have control on what ads pop up it probably would be a very nice thing. Can you control what ads pop up so they are relevant to your niche?

    1. Hi Ronnie,

      I can relate with that. I’m always concerned if my visitors will think that I’m trying to spam them.
      You have the option to contact LinkShrink and remove the ads you don’t like.
      Hope that helps.


  8. Great info. This is not a bad way to keep your site running. Every business needs revenue to keep running. Thank you!
