Let me try and see if I can help us both better understand what you are asking.
You said...I just began to run ads with adf.ly but....
You mean you purchased adverting from adf.ly or you purchased from another source to advertise your adf.ly links?
You said...I mean: I pay for people to see my ads, so how will this somehow "convert".....
You cannot pay people to look at an ad that uses an adf.ly url.
Hello, thank you for the reply.
I just ordered 10$ of ads to try it (and spread my forum around the net), but getting a little of that money back would always be nice - the problem just is that I have no clue what you are talking about, no point of refrence what so ever :-/
Could you (or someone else) please give me an example on how to do this?
Here is an example....
Let us assume you are an expert in making Tennis Rackets. You write an article about Tennis Rackets. You advertise that article all over the internet. In that article you place some links that take readers to a site that sells Tennis Rackets. The links you use in the article are links you create using your adf.ly account. So now when readers of your article click the links in the article you make money within your adf.ly account. Also, when the readers reach your advertised destination, your Tennis Racket site, the reader may become a paying customer. So by tracking the link activity you start to get information about conversion.
I hope that helps and please realize that understanding the true value of conversion is a big topic. It is a bigger topic when you include extra steps. For example adf.ly may turn away some readers and they will not reach your final destination. That is if you main goal was selling Tennis Rackets.
