Infolinks Review

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 payment proof

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I found the Infolinks control panel to be a little outdated, but so far in my experience I have found Infolinks to be one of the best in-text advertising networks available.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

Infolinks also has an Android app and an iOS app, and you can use them to monitor the performance of your account from your mobile phone.

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.

We will cover other legitimate advertisement programs for your blog in the near future.

    I just started using Infolinks but intext ads,adds too much of links in post,it looks odd.What I found that it will not work for low traffic blogs.Not working for me :(

    • says

      You can control the number of links Infolinks will add from your dashboard. It works good when you have good traffic & your blog is using commerce keywords.

  6. Derek says

    I made no money with adbrite when I was running a forum. The ads just didn’t match that well. It could of been my fault but I don’t run that forum no more. lol

    Info links is good, I have used them in the past but currently do not use them. If I start another site I may try them again. Nice review!

  7. says

    First of thanks Harsh for all the information and I personally think that infolinks is also as good as Adsense. Obviously there is no comparison to google product but its is just fare to assume that with infolinks you can earn just same as adsense. It is just that in infolinks it will take some more time than adsense since infolinks is something that does not offer high cpc rates. So I think everyone out there should try infolinks out and if it works then they should definitely go for it, absolute option it is for monetizing your blog,

  8. Akil Malek says

    Great article Harsh. Before reading this i was confused whether to use it or not. But one question arises here in my mind. How many links per page should we use?

  9. Wiryawan Adipa says

    I’m using Infolinks right now on my website, it because my website not approved by adsense, may be that my website still young (1 month), and I think I have to wait for 6 months to be approved by adsense, but for now Infolinks is good enough for me.

    • says

      You don’t need six months for google adsense approval. My website got approved when my domain was just 27 days old and had only 14 blog posts. There are few things you have to keep in mind before applying for adsense other than what adsense policies says.

      1) Must have quality content and minimum of 10-15 blog posts. You really don’t need 30+ articles for approval. If you have 10-15 articles, google will approve it but it also needs to follow other things which i have written below.
      2)Don’t forget to use other google products such as Webmaster and Analytics – Other than this, also submit your sitemap and links on Bing and Yandex.
      3) Continuity in Article Posting – Your habits of regularly updating your website plays a very important role in getting approved. I posted my articles regularly on alternate days and that really helped me.
      4) Alexa Ranking – Verify the ownership of your domain on Alexa and wait till Alexa shows your Global ranking. It will generally take 7-10 days after domain verification.
      5) Use social media to get at least 50-100 visitors a day on your website.
      6) Disable other ad programs(if any), while applying for adsense.
      7) Have necessary pages like About Us, Terms, Privacy Policy or whichever is necessary.
      8) Backlinks – You can get a lot of visitors if you have quality backlinks. In initial days of blogging, its tough to get them but still you can use Reddit for it. According to your Niche, find a subreddit and submit your link there.
      9) Don’t use a messed-up theme for your website. If possible use minimal approach and a clean design.
      10) Do remember, adsense approval is done by humans and not the robots. So before applying, do recall it in your mind that “Do my website really follow all the guidelines”.

      I hope this helps. Cheers :D

  13. Himanshu Dureja says

    Using it from past one year and it is adding some extra bucks along with adsense and chitika.
    Infolinks Ad program is worth using. Thanks for informative post.

  14. snehal says

    I am not able to open account in infolinks, it’s showing error unsupported website. can u tell me why? thank for this post

  15. says

    I’ve been using Infolinks for 3 months now, although in my case the CPM is very very low as compared to adsense but it’s probably because my niche has low priced keywords and the traffic is generally form South Asia. But from my personal experience I think infolinks is a very good & reliable ad network, they pay on time and there is no malware or anything (as is the case with most other such networks). You can’t depend on it as a full source of income but it can add nicely to your income stream.
