Infolinks Review: How it works and complete Guide

Overall
2.5

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: Not so great anymore!

Update: Infolinks is no more the best ways to monetize your blog. You can use any of these ad networks which also works for low traffic.

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I found the Infolinks control panel to be a little outdated and in 2019, it doesn’t seem to generate good results like it used to do back in the days.

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.

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

Can You Use Infolinks and Google AdSense Together?

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 questions 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.

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.

 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.

Conclusion:

  • 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.

  1. I have just got the approval from Infolinks…. Their text ads are really mind blowing and auto-generated… But have a asking, how much they pay in PPC?

  2. I have tried infolinks for about five months in my website but could not earn anything. Just removed that from my website. I am now looking for other alternative as my website was banned from AdSense.

  3. I have been approved by Infolinks since 3 months and have 1500+ ad views. Still I have not been paid anything. My account shows 0.00$. Is it because I have not entered my payment information?

    HI HARSH
    good information.
    but i have a question, I want to show ads via Adsense+ infolinks+ affiliate marketing. is it possible??

  11. Thankyou for this valuable information.I just signup for infolinks and installed their WP plugin.Hope they will approve my request.But what if they rejected ? Can any body help ?

    Thankyou

    1. yes, you can do that. but don’t fill your page with ads. try to limit your ads to 3-4 in a page to give a good user experience.

    Infolinks works quite well after these 2 giants, Adsense and Media.net for me, actually, I tried Infolinks on my blog tech 2hack.com and it worked well but at the present time i am not using infolinks because there no space to put ads from 3 different networks.
