|Review At A Glance
Adf.ly is a URL shortener like bit.ly or goo.gl, but instead of redirecting their users directly, for each of their links they show a page with two frames. In the top, smaller frame is a "skip ad" button that becomes accessible after 5 seconds, in the bottom frame is the advertisement. This is supposed to give you cheap traffic for your website.
- This is junk traffic.
- These people are on their way to go somewhere else. They're not going to pay attention to whatever you have to offer them.
- Very low conversion rate.
I have recently tested for you a cheap traffic source that was supposed to be a good solution to make money off your blog or website. I was actually given the method through an e-book I bought. Although I requested and received a refund for that e-book, the money I invested in that "traffic source" itself is now lost... I hope that my bad experience will be of some use to you!
So, the basic idea is this: buy some "worldwide traffic" from Adf.ly that costs only $0.80 per 1000 visitors and direct that traffic to a site of your choice. I have made two tests with 10,000 visitors each and tried directing them to:
The only real consequence is that all this junk traffic has consumed all my bandwidth, and I'm lucky the director of my hosting company is a friend because I have exceeded my quota but the site's still in operation...
Conclusion: don't waste your time with Adf.ly. That service isn't worth your time or your money.
