links are blocked?

Postby wisdom78 » Wed Jan 27, 2016 2:15 pm

Hi I have two concerns about using ad fly short cut links.
1. I noticed that facebook had completely blocked them, so I can't post using facebook and youtube as well won't let me post with the ad fly link. I had to go back to goo.gl short cuts. :(
2. when they do click the link, I want it to open in a new window/tab and I have noticed too that when the ad shows up, not everybody is going to know to wait for the skip ad to show up at the top. as a result they close it. Question in this case... How do I let them know that they will see an ad and to skip it? for if I put that on my site or next to the link, they may not even click it because they know now it's going to show and ad!

I really need some tips to get this going, for I have a very nice informational site that should be getting a lot of traffic. thanks.

I'm facing the same problem. I can't post the adf.ly link on Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Did you discover a way to post that links? Please, let me how you do this.


Wish your success.

I don't do Facebook but have you tried j.gs and q.gs domain if they are blocked as well. Why not test these dummy short links and see if they are accepted.

http://j.gs/Za19aZ91 and/or http://q.gs/Za19aZ91

Note that these are fake URLs and are intended for testing purposes.

If they are accepted, click on more options when you shorten your link and select the domain which is acceptable to Facebook.

As for the other question, you have to tell your visitors that they need to wait and click on the skip ad button. If you want to see how I did it, go to http://footballfont.blogspot.com and scroll down to the bottom of the page and see how I tell my visitors about the delay and the need to click on the button to start a download.

If bit.ly is acceptable on those sites, I was able to mask my adf.ly link with bit.ly. Here's how:

Login to your adfly account. Then go to https://adf.ly/publisher/tools#tools-easy Take note of the sample URL in the form of http://adf.ly/0000000/www.google.com where 0000000 is your adf.ly ID. The sample ID shown in the adf.ly tools page is your own ID.

Replace the adf.ly domain with either q.gs or j.gs so your link will now look like

http://j.gs/0000000/www.google.com
or
http://q.gs/0000000/www.google.com

Replace http://www.google.com with your own link. if your linked URL is http://www.test.com or https://www.test.com, your adf.ly link will now look like (Note: Use the complete URL just drop the protocol part)

http://j.gs/0000000/www.test.com
or
http://q.gs/0000000/www.test.com

Go to http://www.bitly.com/ and shorten the URL. If you have a longer URL than the example, the better. Use the complete and not just the domain. If your link is http://www.test.com/trial_file/download/show.html, your adf.ly link would be

http://j.gs/0000000/www.test.com/trial_ ... /show.html
or
http://q.gs/0000000/www.test.com/trial_ ... /show.html

Post the bit.ly short URL at those social media sites.

BTW I asked tech support before if I could use other adf.ly domains and I was told no go. Another thing is that all sample URLs in this post do not exist. No one will be paid if you click on the links

Enjoy
