Genuine: Earn Money Online FREE Shortening & Sharing Links

Have what it takes to earn money online? Above all for free?  It’s a big Yes. As long as you have as much as a simple mobile phone and internet access, Yes you do.

Here’s my story: A few years ago i was just a little bit dense 16-year-old high school student with little knowledge on what the internet is, I did know a little HTML,  I have managed to teach myself after reading so many guides.

More so I knew those guys who was making little money on the internet then. They were mostly kids. Like ME!

I so wished to join them but I had no resources. No Computer, No Laptop, Just a small mobile phone that couldn’t access the internet much but then I knew I had to do something which obviously is saving up some cash to buy a PC. That way I could at least have a shot at this.

The journey was a rough one. No funds to buy web hosting talk less of a single domain lol. I never knew one could earn money online FREE shortening links back then.

The initial plan was to start a rough forum using some very popular script among locals here called PBNL, copy paste some news from popular websites, Spam very popular Facebook PAGES comment box to get traffic. I got an average of 500 visitors per day using that technique but slowly everything changed.

Facebook changed the way comments are being ordered, you could try that now and come up with NOTHING! ZILCH.

Things have changed a lot during these years. I would have driven my spam comments traffic which are mostly Top tier and Nigerians to my shortened link for more cash.

So the real Question is…..
