Login and click on “ Create Links”
As you can see in the picture above, you can shorten Single URL or Multiple URL’s. Here type the URL in the space provided. Please give the full URL starting from http. You can select Ad Type as Interstitial or Banner or None. From earning point of view, selecting Interstitial will provide you more money. But it take 15 seconds while redirecting the URL and displays an advertisement. Usually visitors hate this and close the window. So better option is Banner because, it will show an advertisement only on the top of the window of the desired redirected URL . That means, visitors will not be delayed.
You may select “None”, if you don't want income and just want to shorten URL.Now click on “Create”
Now you will reach the page “ Manage”. Here you can view the statistics of the link you made. Just keep the move over the URL you gave to shorten. Now you will get the shortened URL.
If you type this shortened URL in browser window, then you can see a small advertisement slot , over the top of the window. This brings revenue to Linkb and we also get paid.
