The amount depends on the country where the link is being opened. Once a threshold limit is crossed then you can transfer the money to your account.

Paid URL Shortner

Let’s take an example: Alex Embbeds shortened URL’s on his Quora Answer. Now suppose for every 1000 clicks on the monetised URL’s, he is fixed to be paid $1.5. Let during the day he gets 3000 clicks for various Short URLs.

So, he will earn 3*1.5 = $4.5 per day; if this goes for a month then he will get around $135/Month.

You need to come up with the good strategy. Sharing URL with catchy tagline would definitely help.

You can try various online URL Shortener services like linkshrink.netCPMlink.netshorte.st etc.

You need to come up with some good strategy and high-quality answer content so as the readers are excited to click on your link thus gathering huge targeted traffic to your site.
