Infolinks - An Overview 

Infolinks has been paying publishers since 2007 for allowing them to post ads on their website.We've heard that the application process for Infolinks is a bit less rigorous than Google Adsense, so if you're a new blogger and do not have a lot of content on your blog yet, Infolinks may be a great solution for you. 

How Does Infolinks Work?

Infolinks is similar to Google Adsense in that the content of ads generated for your viewers is based on an algorithm that takes into account two things: 
  1. What your readers just viewed, and 
  2. What they are currently reading.
Infolinks differs from Google Adsense in the manner the ads are delivered. With Infolinks the ads are designed to eliminate banner blindness in several ways. Here is an overview of the types of ads Infolinks now offers.

Types of Infolinks Advertising 

Infolinks several types of advertising including affiliate advertising.
  1. Infolinks Affiliate Advertising currently allows you to make 10% of any referred accounts ad revenues for the first 12 months. This is one major difference from Google Adsense.

By turning InFrame on, you can quickly and easily change the settings of your account to fully maximize your revenues with Infolinks. Here is a screen shot of our In-Frame Customization page.With the InFrame ads, they approach from the left, right or both sides.

  5. InScreen Infolinks Ads. Inscreen Infolinks ads are one of the newest ad offerings from Infolinks and can be customised as to colour and timing of when the InScreen ad will be shown. Would you choose to show the InScreen ad on entering, leaving or on internal links? We are experimenting with the internal links rather than entering or exiting. Which setting would you choose for your site?

  6. Infolinks InTag Advertising. While Infolinks InTag advertising has been out for a while, Infolinks has just added a new twist to this popular ad type. The traditional InTag advertising customization allows you to choose the colour of the tag links, and their placement as shown in this screenshot of our Infolinks Customization page. For these traditional InTag links, I'd recommend using the same colour as your regular links.

  7. NEW Infolinks InTag Revenue Booster Ads. Just recently rolled out, we believe the new InTag Revenue Booster Ads will really make a difference in Infolinks Revenue. By turning on the InfolinksInTag Revenue Booster option, you now will get two additional types of InTag Ads: intent Triggered display banners and Premium Content Recommendations. Did you catch the March 19 2015 Infolinks blogpost about this feature? In the picture above you can see we've turned on the InTag Revenue Booster option. What do these types of ads look like? Here is a screen shot from the Infolinks site showing the tree types of InTag ads now available through Infolinks. For us the most exciting type is the Premium Content ads. There are several companies offering these types of ads, but you need a HUGE readership to qualify on their site, and Infolinks is a great way to access this type of advertising for new sites.
