In my previous post, Tom asked if it is worth it is worth implementing Infolinks into niche blogs.
Tom asked :
That would be very handy! I am thinking about implementing InfoLinks into a few of my niche blogs , do you think its worth it?
Well, below is the screenshot of the payment I received from Infolinks on December 30, 2008 :
Infolinks work with Google and we cannot get penalised for selling links. So, it is a safe bet. Moreover, it doesn’t intrude into our regular readers’ view because the tiny bubble pop up doesn’t show unless we mouse over the link. Regular readers will know those double underline words are ads link.
However, organic traffic will immediately click on them because the links look like a useful link.
But I must warn bloggers that it is wise to reduce the links per page or else we will get too many links inserted into our page. You can limit the number of links to appear on each page.
What you need to do is to add a line like the one I bolded below :
var infolink_pid =MY INFOLINK ID;
var infolink_link_color = ‘708090’; (colour that I chose)
var infolink_title_color = ‘708090’;
var infolink_text_color = ‘708090’;
var infolink_ad_link_color = ‘24951E’;
var infolink_ad_effect_type = 0;
var infolink_anow = 5;
It means only 5 links will appear on each page. You can set any number you like. Otherwise, Infolinks will insert insane numbers of links and hence, make people and yourself go crazy with the double underlined links.
So, ready to Infolinks yet? Infolinks can make money if you know how. I only use it on a few blogs which I don’t normally do paid post. However, you can choose to leave infolinks out of your posts by adding in a few codes. You can find all these codes on your Infolinks dashboard under Implementation guide.
