Earn money online with sharing links


What is Link Sharing?

Well as the name suggests link sharing means sharing links but why do these link sharing websites pay you money?
The answer is when you share a link shortened by these websites; they take the user who clicked that link to the destination website by showing them an advertisement in the header part or body part depends upon what type of advertisement you have selected to be viewed. In this way they are paid from the advertisers and you are paid for helping them.

What kind of links you can share?

You can share almost every kind of link that may lead to any download page or static website. Make sure you do not lead users to porn, hacks or warez websites. Legit websites won’t allow you to do so and your account may be banned.

Now that you know the basics of link sharing websites let me introduce some legit link sharing websites and their details:
