Hey guys, I decided to ask this question at the Minecraft community because I know a lot of Minecrafters who seems to use adf.ly to generate revenue by people clicking the links. What I would like to know is,
Is AdFly legit and safe to use!?
Seriously, I searched all over the internet and couldn't find a reliable source that could tell me it was a legit thing. Reply's are greatly appreciated. :wink.gif:
No offence, but you shouldn't accuse people of not understanding the issue when you yourself clearly don't understand the issue.
Adf.ly is not a service for shortening links (you want one of those then try tinyURL). Its a service that generates revenue through displaying adverts when you click on an Adf.ly link. The problem is that the adverts it displays are not well screened, and tend to be somewhat 'dubious' in nature, sometimes including malicious scripts or surveys/competitions that harvest personal data.
actually, ad.fly is a link shortener. It's in their tagline: "We are a free URL shortener service with a twist...get paid to share your links on the Internet!"
and yes, there are much better link shorteners out there (I like googles personally)
The Commies count their quarters and the ArtSci wish they could, the Engs have the longest pole and slam it home for good, so big, so hard, so tall, it reaches all the way to heaven, so shut your hole, we climbed the pole, we're sci 1 ing 7!!!
Adfly is okay as long as you use adblock or you're very careful to not click on the ads. As of using it for your own links... I don't recommend it because people really just don't like it and it doesn't really generate that much revenue. (It's $0.01 USD for every 5 visitors.) I'd recommend just using tinyURL or goo.gle or bit.ly like the rest of the internet.
