5 Best In-Text Advertising Program for Bloggers

IN-Text Advertising

Example Ad Type

Being a blogger, we should not limit our-self to one way of monetization. If you have seen how ShoutMeLoud makes money, you will realize along with Adsense we use many other methods to make money from our sites. Today, we will learn about In-text advertising and I will share some of the best In text advertisement networks that you can consider joining.

Shoutmeloud has covered lots of tips to make money through advertisements. It doesn’t make much difference that it is banner Ads or ln-text Ads, you just need to follow few tips and tricks to earn through advertisements. When it comes to In-text Ads, I prefer to blend it properly with blog layout in order to make it a lucrative method to earn a good amount. Also, intext advertisement uses Javascript, so presence of advertisement won’t hurt your site SEO.

One of the most common question asked by people is: In text advertising compatibility with Adsense and to let you know, we have used infolinks here at ShoutMeloud for years along with Adsense. In text advertisement, doesn’t violate Adsense policies.

There are many options available for ln-text Ads, but I won’t suggest you to give hit and trial method for ln-text Ads. You can find few options provided by good Advertisers like Infolinks , Chitika , Bidadvertisers which I covered in my earlier post about Alternatives to Google Adsense.

Popular In-text Advertising Programs:


Let me start with one of the most famous and popular network among Blogger. Infolinks is one of the easy to start and implement network. You can control ads from Infolinks dashboard and it offers minimum payout at $50. Inflinks also offer related tags feature to further boost your earning. Over all, after using Infolinks for almost 2 years, I can recommend this network. Payout is via PayPal.

Viglink works on a different model and unlike other in text advertising network, Viglink convert your normal link into affiliate link. Saying that, instead of earning few cents/click, with vigilink you can earn much more with affiliate commision. Viglink is partnered with many existing affiliate network and it converts your normal link into affiliate links. Don’t worry about SEO, it won’t make any difference in SEO.

Viglink Payment

For example: If you write about App store product and you are not an Apple affiliate, Viglink will convert your link into aff. link and when a reader buy the app, you will get a commission out of it. I tried this network on CallingAllGeeks, and it turns out to be really good. I highly recommend tech bloggers to give it a shot.

Vibrant is a popular advertiser with more than 3000 partners, thus the chances of relevant advertisements automatically increase. I used Vibrant and I was pretty happy with it. Vibrant Ads are easy to blend with your blog content and increase the chances of more clicks.


Built In Text

Builtintext is another In-text advertiser which will help you to increase your CTR. It gives you 30% Ad Revenue Sharing. The best part about built in-text is that you can choose from 15 Ads format according to your blog layout. Bloggers who prefer to avoid irritating ads on their blog, Built in-text is a good option for them.

Well by the end, your earning depends upon your blog demographic. For example, traffic from countries like U.S always pays more than traffic from Asian countries. So, my advice is to pick a network which converts better for your blog demographic. I have used Infolinks, Viglink, Kontera from above list on my blog and they work out to be good. You can also check other network TOS and apply for them and see which one works.

Do let us know which In text advertising network are you using at the moment and which one you will recommend to others?

    No doubt that Infolinks is the best In-text Advertising program, but I have seen a lot of people who just hate Infolinks. I think if your blog is popular, then you should not use Infolinks as it may give a bad user experience to your users and you may lose a lot of readers.

  2. Vikrant Malik says

    I also think Infolinks is the best in all those and also you ranked it first in your list. Really useful article…..

  3. Ankit Bansal says

    I want to know that Info links depend on the country you are getting traffic too because i also have a job site which gets a nice traffic but only from India.
    So should i try infolinks ? I have not tried as yet because i always value my readers more. but due to financial reasons i need other sources of income .
    So please suggest ?

    • Abhishek says

      Ankit, infolinks pay high for US, UK and canada traffic only. In India the pay out is very low even if the ecpm reaches around $5. You will get only $4-$5 earnings for $3-$4 ecpm in India. But if the traffic is from United States you can earn alot..

  4. Jonathan Cohen says

    You can definitely use Kontera with AdSense. Because AdSense is displayed in a completely different part of a webpage, using Kontera can only add to your overall revenue.

  5. admin says

    Never heard about any of them but now would love to use them. Can We use them with adsensE?

  6. SHARIQ says

  7. chandan says

    Very good list of In-Text Advertising, but i think that too much ads on the same site is too confusing to visitors and may make them upset and lead them to leave you website eespecially if these ads takes long time to load.
    thank u for sharing

    • says

      Right Osama, that’s the mistake one by lots of money minded bloggers. I would suggest to have one or two Ad programs and think about your visitors too.

  9. Amal Roy says

    These are pretty much new programs. I have never heard some of them before. Good to give them a try. It would have been better if you could add infolinks and kontera to the top of the list as those are the toppers in intext advertising.

    • says

      I have covered infolinks in my previous article about Google Adsense alternatives.
      It seems Infolinks is very lucky for you , Keep Rocking :).

    • Mahendra says

      Are you making $30 per day ? on which site ? I haven’t seen any info link ads on your site donotopen! Just wanted to have a look to your site.

  10. Mahendra says

    Vibrant is not vibrant for small publishers.It requires monthly 500000 impression which is a dream figure for small and medium publishers. Some of above network have target audience only western countries, useless of Publishers having Asian region.

    No one can compare to info links in view of eligibility, CTR and blog size.
    Anyway thanks for giving me a try to some new ad network which I was not aware.

    • says

      Agree with you Mahendra, Infolinks has no comparision , it’s best. Vibrant is good for big publisher but provides good earnings with time.
