Infolinks is a name which you are likely to see mentioned when you are reading about monetizing your blog. I have used Infolinks for years, and in today’s post I will be sharing my review of Infolinks from my experience.
I started blogging in 2008, and the first advertising network I used was Google AdSense. Thereafter, I started looking for other blog monetization programs, and that’s when I stumbled upon Infolinks.
The first question that came to my mind was:
Can I use Infolinks with Google AdSense?
After reading various reviews, I decided to apply for Infolinks ad network and use it on my blog.
Infolinks review: works perfectly with Adsense!
One thing you will like about Infolinks right away is the fact that it is easy to set up, and once you have set it up, you don’t have to do much! Infolinks will automatically start showing ads on your blog, and you will start making money right away.
Now before you jump for joy and sign up, you should know that it takes time to earn any decent income from Infolinks. You need to have good search engine traffic, ensuring that you get traffic from countries like the U.S. and the U.K. in order to earn high CPM on Infolinks.
Here is a screenshot offered as proof of payment:
Infolinks minimum payout is $50, and payment methods include PayPal.
I found the Infolinks control panel to be a little outdated, but so far in my experience I have found Infolinks to be one of the best in-text advertising networks available.
At the time of the writing of this article, Infolinks is one of the biggest contributors to ShoutMeLoud’s earnings, after AdSense.
Infolinks is easy to integrate, and from the Infolinks option panel, you can configure ad color, number of ads, and various other options.
While there are hundreds of other programs which sound similar and promise to be one of the best advertising networks available, when it comes to payment, you will face numerous issues with other networks.
I can tell you that Infolinks is not a scam website, and they pay within the stated payout time. They offer various payment options such as PayPal, Western Union, and bank wire transfer. I personally use PayPal to receive my payments.
The only thing I do not like about Infolinks is the Infolinks affiliate program, because they do not offer a monitoring system for affiliate referrals. (Though surprisingly, I even get paid for that!)
Another good aspect of Infolinks is that you can run it with your current AdSense ads without issue.
Here is a demo video of Infolinks, which will give you an idea of how this advertising network works, and what types of ads will be displayed on your blog:
Here are the payment options offered by Infolinks:
- Bank Wire Transfers – $25 plus 2% to receive your payment via your local currency
- PayPal – U.S. residents $1, everyone else 2% up to $10
- eCheck – $6 plus 2% for currency conversion
- Western Union – $15 minimum
- ACH and Payoneer – No fees
Based on my personal experience using this program, my opinion is that Infolinks is one of the best text link ads programs available to us today.
