How many times has it been told to you that “Making money online from home” is a fairy tale? Or in other cases, you need to have a Ph.D. in SEO and marketing in order to do so?
What if I told you, those people who say so either don’t know anything for themselves, or well aren’t just capable enough.
It definitely isn’t a fairy tale and you don’t need a degree in anything either to make couple fast bucks off the internet.
Infact, what if I tell you, you don’t even need a blog! Well that’s the beauty of Shorte.st, the URL shortening program I’m writing about in this piece of review.
Being honest, this is the one platform which let me make my first dollar online, couple years back and I’ve been in love with it since, so why is this review coming so late? Well pardon me, but I just didn’t want the world to go saturate it out. (Yeah, it’s the blunt truth!)
So yeah lend me your attention and pay heed to what I’m going to cover out, let’s start with the baby steps, right?

What is Shorte.st?
Shorte.st is an URL shortening platform, (as I already said!) but now the question arises, how good is it and why would it pay you, right? Well, before you actually start trusting it I know you are keen to know why it works! Why would anyone on this planet would pay you for shortening your URL’s?
Well, they don’t do it for social service. Yeah I won’t lie about that. Let me tell you how it works and then probably you can understand the practicality of Shorte.st
Shorte.st is a platform where advertisers approach for Website impressions. Meaning if some got a site, shorte.st will give them a certain number of impressions, for a certain price.
Now what it does is, whenever you shorten your URL’s with it, it creates an intermediary page for your URL’s. And everytime your link is clicked, those websites from the advertisers are displayed for 5 seconds.
See here’s an illustration of how it works:-
So, because you used their service and created the short URL, they can display the ads/ website impressions, and hence you get paid a percentage of whatever they are making from their sponsors.
Why Shorte.st is Better?
A totally legit question, yeah I mean why would you go with Shorte.st and not any other platform out there? There certainly isn’t a shortage of URL shortening platforms, right?
Well the feature I love most about Shorte.st is that it doesn’t spam your page! All the ads that are displayed are on the intermediary page!
For eg. you shortened “www.yoururl.com“, you’ll get a short url that will look something like “sh.st/32323” now, the destination is YourUrl.com but the ads aren’t displayed on that.
Instead the are displayed on a third party Url, the Short URL which you created and hence no negative effect on your site!
Secondly, they have insane pay – out rates! They pay as high as around $10.80 /1000 impressions! (Or even higher in some cases!) Ofcourse the payout isn’t fixed, but well this is what’s possible with Shorte.st!
Here’s a live payment proof for you just in case you’re pondering over it’s authenticity.
