[Guide] - Make your own link shortener with Blogger and increase earning

Make your own link shortener with Blogger and increase earning. Nowadays, many Bloggers are using third-party services for shrinking links or encrypting them in the hopes of earning more money from downloads. 

But most of these link shrinking services pay very little. You can get thousands of views and downloads but can't make a reasonable earning from them. So, what is the better option for you? Creating your own very link shrinking or encrypting site which functions in the same way as others(adf.ly, ouo.io, etc). 

This post is focused on How to make your own link shortener with Blogger and increase earnings. By using this method with your blogger blog, you will increase traffic and earn more than what you get with other link shortener services.

With Blogger, you can create your own link shortener(or link encrypting) website and use it to gain even more traffic, monetize it and make more money. And more to that, since you can monetize with Adsense, it will save your visitors from all the hassle the get from links shorteners that have pop-up ads.

Requirements to create a link shortener site with Blogger

  • A domain name. Your Blogger blog needs to be on a custom domain name. Although you can still create without a CNAME, it will be more advantageous to have a custom domain name for easy monetization.
  • The URL shortener script(code) for Blogger.
  • Basic HTML knowledge

How this URL shortener will come in handy

  1. Increase traffic: With third-party link shorteners, your short or encrypted links go through the third-party site. But if you are having a link shortener all that traffic will come back to you.
  2. Boost earnings: An increase in traffic will definitely result in an increment of your earnings.

Getting started

As we said earlier, you need to have a custom domain name for your Blogspot blog. And if your Blogspot website is already monetized, then you are good. Below are the steps to follow:

Create a subdomain for your blog.

Once you have a custom a Blogspot blog with a CNAME, you can create further subdomains for your existing domain name. Let's say your blog is www.example.com. You should then create a subdomain for this domain like out.example.com where all your external download links will be pointing to, to use for the link shortener site.

Create a new Blogger blog and link to the subdomain

Once you've created your subdomain, you just need to link it to a new Blogspot blog. You can read here how to add CNAME to Blogspot.

Uploading URL Shortener script

Once you have created your new Blogspot blog and pointed it to the subdomain of your domain name, you can now upload the URL shortener script or template and customize it.

Note that even if you have your main site hosted on WordPress, you can still create a URL shortener with subdomain and host on Blogger free.

To upload the URL shortener script, proceed thus;
  • Log in to your Blogger site
  • Locate the blog on which you want to upload the template.
  • Click on "theme" then "Edit HTML"
  • Download URL shortener script from below, open and copy all content.
  • On the HTML Editor in your Blogger dashboard, press CTRL + A to copy all content and then delete it.
  • Now paste new code(the one you get from here)
  • Save the template and there you go.


You can add Ads code directly from the layout. The title will auto what you've set as blog title as well as the Footer credit.

The different ads placements are indicated on the theme layout.

How this URL shortener works

Just like any other URL shortener where you get to see some contents and ads displayed, this Blogger URL shortener works the same. Any time you short a link, it will automatically pass through a post on your URL shortening site. 

And if the site is already monetized, visitors will get to see your ads, wait for a couple of seconds on the page before proceeding to the final download link.

Once you have installed the template, you will need to create some posts via which your encrypted or short links will pass through. You can add in-post ads as well.

How to use

  • Put the link on the Generate Link box with http:// or https://
  • Use CTRL + V on the keyboard to put the link.
  • Click the Generate button to get encrypted link.
  • Click the Copy URL button.
  • Done.

  • Download Blogger link shortener script
