Each URL shortener may handle these factors/policies differently which means your earnings could vary greatly from one URL shortening service to another. As a general rule-of-thumb, you should expect to earn around $0.60 – $2.00 per 1000 views for most URL shorteners. But it is very possible to earn hundreds of dollars from URL shorteners with enough work and effort.

Bc.vc does what it’s supposed to and if the majority of your traffic is mobile, this shortener may work for you. However, I wouldn’t recommend using bc.vc over other URL shorteners like Adf.ly or Shorte.st. Their website doesn’t feel very professional and based on their announcements, they seem to encounter many bugs and issues.
- You’ll need to create a bc.vc account, click here to register.
- Now figure out what kind of links you will be shrinking and how you plan on sharing them. Example: you can shrink links to a funny video or picture and post that link on your social media accounts.
- Paste the long URL in the appropriate area and hit “Shrink”. Copy and share the link to start earning.
- (Optional) Shrink your bc.vc link with another URL shortener such as Bit.ly to hide that your link is a bc.vc link – increasing the amount of clicks you’ll receive.
