This is part of Blogger’s question and answers series, where I answer readers questions in the form of a blog post. This question is from Richard:
Can I use Google AdSense and Infolinks together? If I use Infolinks along with AdSense, will it put my AdSense account in danger?
This is one of the most commonly asked question related to blog monetization. AdSense is very strict about their program policies and placement guidelines. You can check out AdSense policies here.
Good thing is, you can use almost any other ad network with AdSense till the time, other ad network doesn’t display ads in format, which mimics original Ads served by AdSense or creates confusion between AdSense and 3rd party advertisement.
Is it Safe to use AdSense and Infolinks together:
Infolinks is an in-text ad network and offers various other ad types. I have used AdSense and info links together here at ShoutMeLoud for years, and it has worked out great. Officially there are no issues using Infolinks with Google AdSense. You can learn more about Infolinks here.
Like AdSense, Infolinks relies on the contextual ad technology to display relevant ad, but they don’t violate any of the AdSense guidelines and is fully compatible with AdSense. You can also check out this official Infolinks page for more information.
Still, what if you could take things a step further by transforming your site’s content into its ad platform? That’s exactly what Infolinks has done. The perfect complement to AdSense, Infolinks uses InText Ads and transforms your site’s copy into ad copy in a matter of seconds. Better yet, there is no risk, it takes no space of your site, no commitment, you don’t have to alter your site’s content and your site will become profitable right away.

- You can safely use Infolinks on the same page where you are monetizing with AdSense.
- You can also use any other in-text ad network along with AdSense on a webpage. Ex: Viglink, SkimLinks
- The only thing that you need to take care of is; ensure the pop-up created by hovering the mouse on info links ads, should not cover AdSense ads. You need to take care of AdSense placement in such a manner to avoid the same. A good practice is to add <!– INFOLINKS_ON–> and <!– INFOLINKS_OFF–> at the start and end of the content area of your blog. This way info links ads will be displayed only in your content area part.
