For over a decade, Google Adsense has been the only advertising network that pays good for Bloggers. But, in the recent years, we can find several new ad networks rising up like anything. Out of all, only a few succeeded and one among those is the Infolinks. Although, it’s not a complete replacement to Adsense, its way too better than the other Adsense alternatives out there.
I’ve used it on several blogs of mine and the results were astonishing. The good part of Infolinks is that you can use it along with Google Adsense as they’re completely in-text ads. Besides Adsense, Infolinks is my next biggest contributor. I haven’t used it on 9to5Blogger yet, but have good experience using it on my technology blog and other entertainment blogs. Integrating Infolinks ads is pretty easy. Simply, go to Customize tab and customize the colors and max links allowed per page. Next, go to Integrate tab and choose the 1-Minute integration process.
Myth Buster: There is no threat to your Adsense account if you use Infolinks along with it.
Infolinks Payments: As of on writing this post, the minimum payout is $50 and PayPal is used as the default payment system. You can as well use various other payment options like Western Union, Bank wire transfer, Check etc…But, I personally prefer PayPal as its an easy way to receive money online.
Infolinks Payment Cycle: Infolinks calculates your earnings at the end of each month for that month and issues your payment within 45 days of the end of the payment period, which is the standard industry practice.
If you haven’t reached the minimum payment threshold ($50), then all those earnings will be forwarded to the next month and will be paid during the next payment cycle.
Here I am sharing my earning reports that prove the Infolinks performance.
Infolinks Earnings [Latest: Ignored for several months and started using these recently]
Infolinks Earnings [Old: During the first few months of Sign up]
In my view, Infolinks is the best text links advertising program till date. I haven’t faced any problems with them till date except when I faced some problems with my PayPal account (which isn’t in their hands).
