Adlock is a URL shortener website which uses CPA, CPM model to pay its publishers. Adlock is one of the few URL shortener service which offers both CPM and CPA based ads to its users. Like other CPA URL shorteners it also offers high payout rates but the thing that makes it different from other URL shorteners is that, it also offers top banner ads where other URL shorteners only offers interstitial and link locker ads. Adlock is also one of the oldest URL shortener but it is not a very popular one. Some things that i like about this network are high payout rates, minimum payout, tools offered, nice and fast support and last but not the least – a good referral program. The only thing that disappointed me is its payment frequency, which is on monthly basis. This is the overview of this network so lets discuss about the services and facilities offered by this network, its pros and cons etc in detail.
Sign Up And Approval:
Like other URL shorteners sign up is easy. The all you need is a valid email address to register an account on it. Approval is also not necessary because it doesn’t ask you to have a website to register on it and use its URL shortener tool. But if you want to show the top banner ads then you have to submit your website for approval. Your website must receive at least 1000 unique visitors per day.
Adlock offers high payout rates to its users, you can check the payout rates on their website under publishers payout link. These payout rates update on daily basis and the rates differ for countries. For some countries it offers very high payout rates while for rest of the countries, rates are decent.
Stats Reporting System:
Reporting system offered by Adlock is good. On Adlock reporting system you can see the detailed graphical stats about your links performance. The reporting system also uses several filters to breakdown the reports so that you can analyze them in a better way.
Adlock offers all the necessary tools that you can use to increase your earnings. The tools offered by Adlock are Full Page Script, Easy Link, Mass Shrinker, Google Analytics and Export.

Adlock pays its users on monthly basis, usually it pays on the first Monday of each month.
Currently Adlock offers only PayPal as a payment method to its users.
Like most of the top URL shorteners, Adlock also offers a very competitive referral program, which is, if you refer publishers to Adlock then you will get 20% rev-share of your referrals earning for lifetime. So, you can say Adlock’s referral program is another great way to increase your earnings.
