Adf.ly, Linkbucks , bc.vc and Adfoc.us are the link shortening networks that pay you when users click on your shortened links and reach their content after a 5 seconds interstitial ad. You may bump into such links on websites or social forums that use it to make few bucks from their content. These ad networks do pay and they are legit but the paying fraction is very poor which equivalent to 1000 views for $1 for non targeted traffic and 3-4 $ for traffic from west. These tiny links are very frustrating to those who try to skip them because every time you visit a website and click on the shortened links you must wait for 5 seconds to reach your content and then click the Skip Ad button.
