How to start using AdShrink?
Did you just sign-up for AdShrink and you would like to know how to continue? You are definitely right in this article. We will explain, how to create your first link and which other settings you can define. Additionally, we will consider, how you can easily get in touch with our team for further support.ù
The AdShrink Dashboard
- First of all: The stats show in the dashboard are for a specific time range. Default is 7 days. But you can change it easily. Now let us start right at the top by explaining what the different stats actually mean.
- Impressions: An impression is the actual visit of the AdShrink page and also includes solving the Google Captcha. For verified users, every visit to the AdShrink page is counted.
- Clicks: A click is counted if a person continues to the target URL. This is possible after he completed all active advertisement offers.
- Links: This is the number of all created links within this time period.
- Payments: Here we display your total income.
The graph underneath shows your CPM, your daily income, your clicks and impressions. The CPM is your average income per 1000 clicks. If you only have a few daily clicks, it is very likely quite unstable. Scrolling down the dashboard, you can see all your created links with details for each link. On the bottom of the page you can see our guidelines. We recommend to read them.
Let us continue with creating your first link. Actually it is quite easy.
1. Create link
In the dashboard you need to click on the “create link“ button. After that you can insert the link-URL. If you want to link a download, it has to be a direct download-link. For example: Mega.nz, GDrive, dropbox, anonfile, pastebin or mediafire.
2. Choose filename
If you chose a download link, we automatically recognize it. That means, you can choose a filename. You should choose a proper one. It will be displayed for your users on the download button.
Otherwise, we just invite you to set a good button title. This button will be clicked by the users, if they want to continue to the target url.
3. Choose icon
Optionally you can choose your own icon for the installer, when you put in a download link (but you don’t have to activate it). It needs to be a PNG, JPEG, JPG with less than 3mb.
After choosing an icon, you can also set an AdShrink link. Also choose a good name for it. If you have not inserted a download link, this step is done right away.
4. SEO description
Optionally you can choose a SEO description. Especially with AdShrink premium this is an advantage. You will be much more visible in AdShrink search, so a lot of more clicks will be generated, which earns you more money.
5. Activate the Installer
Now just activate the advertisement settings you like to.
