    Hello guys,

    I have an interesting scheme for making money online. It through surfing forums, blogs, answer websites, and social websites answering questions. You need to research the question and find a website with the answer. Then you wrap that website link with an intermission page and post that wrapped link to the website, forum, or blog that had the question. Few forums and blogs will bring you much money :)

    I earn 50 dollars per day. I think, It's a good amount for about 3-4 hours of my workday :)

    Almost forgot, I use as URL shortener service. I had experience with another services, but ULMT.IN is most reliable. High rates is a big plus of this service :)

    Hi Luizz,

    That's an interesting concept, but I don't quite understand what it is you are doing to make money. Please make it a bit more clear for those of unfamiliar. What exactly is an "intermission page" and how do you "wrap" a link? How does this actually generate money for you?

    The url shortening website supposedly pays for clicks and then generates revenue for it's advertisers by displaying banner ads in the window frame of the website being accessed.

    Aha! Thanks Vishal. So any url shortening site won't do. This is something I hadn't heard of, but that sounds a bit icky for the person following the links. I hate when those ads pop up over a page myself, so I'd hate to inflict it on others. ;) I can understand the appeal for the one posting the links if you make money from it, but I don't think it's for me.

    Same here Angie. These concepts are always short lived.

    Agreed. If my ultimate goal is conversions, I don't want people having to "trip" over advertisements to get to my websites. And I don't think URL shorteners are a good SEO practice either.

    You will have 2 options to show ADs to the link follower:

    Content Locker ($$$$$): Complete the survey to see the destination page.

    Interstitial ($$$): The ad will be shown before the destination site.

    Framed Banner ($$): Ad banner will be shown at the top of the page.

    And the examples of short links to

    payment proof,

    This concept works without own site. You find the answer for the question and post the short link of proper website.

    This is a great idea, I need to try this. Seems like it wouldn't take too much work and would be fun.

    Sounds fun but I guess you are only making money if you're posting, right?
    I actually use these type of shorteners (the ones that pay you and the ones that don't) when creating backlinks to my pages. Instead of creating 100 backlinks pointing all to the same page like , I actually create different versions all pointing to the same site ( ,,, and then I use the shorteners to create even more links.
    Google sees this as a more organic way of backlinking - in reality people linking to your website don't use always the same url, they use different ones plus they use shorteners, right?
    I ranked many sites and videos on the first page of Google with this technique!
    Just my 2 cents :)
    Good luck!
