Ads provided by URL shortener website are less intrusive and run for few seconds only, mostly for 5 seconds and therefore they do not annoy visitors. Some URL shorteners ask visitors to fill up the captcha code which visitors take as a security step by the website owner and therefore they won’t mind filling CAPTCHA and help you in generating a good income from your links.

So, here’s the list of 10 best paying URL shortener websites in year 2017:


LinkMus is my favorite URL shortener website, it started early in last year and gained popularity very quickly. The reason of gaining popularity very quickly is it is the highest paying URL shortener in the world. Also good services and on time payments made it popular. So far after using it for around one year i have never faced any delay in payments. They pay on time and every time. This is one of the source of my regular income. It offers high rates for all traffic and that is the reason why i like it the most.

Also unlike other URL shorteners, LinkMus has a special ad type called lockers. Basically users have to download a free app or they have to watch a small video to pass through the link and this pays about $1 per each visitor. You can use this to lock download links or videos and earn really good income.
