If you come to know that you will get paid simply because they came to your blog, then will you not be trying it out. One such program is the Shorte.st.
Shorte allows you to shorten links while you embed it into your blog posts. If you have a self-hosted blog, it can work even better. Embed the code into your header page and everytime your blog shows up on the search engine, any reader who clicks on your blog post will enter and come out after monetizing it.
