Infolinks offers quite a nice alternative to google adsense with potentially high CPM rates dependant on the keywords you have on your site. Infolinks is not as strict as other ad networks, including adsense and with its fast site approval time it is becoming a very popular choice for many bloggers.
How does Infolinks Operate?
Infolinks offers four types of display ads to choose from. You are able to activate as many as wish at one time. As none of these options use conventional banner space on your site, you can use them along side other ad networks including Adsense, Adversal and many more.
Based on certain keywords and phrases from your webpage, Infolinks will display ads.
The intag ads have a very similar look to the text-links found on adsense. The difference being that the visitor only needs to hover over the links and the advert will be displayed. We found these type of ads have a higher click rate when placed at the top of your posts. You can choose where the ads are to be displayed on your site by selecting “manual placement” and simply copying the one line of html code into your page.
The insearch ads only target visitors who have come from a search engine so does not interfere with any returning visitors. The ads will appear as soon as the visitor arrives at your site. It remains at the bottom of the page and after a few seconds will minimise itself to just the headline. If the visitor hovers over the minimised ad it will reappear as seen on the left.
This makes them non-intrusive as the visitor needs to hover over the words to make the ad visible. The hyperlink look also makes them very attractive to visitors to click on. You choose the colours and how many links will display on a page. This ensures a natural look that will blend in with your current design.
For some, the inframe option will feel the most un-instrusive even though it does take up the highest percentage of the visible screen. This option is great when using a second ad network on the same page.
Mixing different styles of ads across your pages will keep click through rates at their highest as it will target the most amount of visitors to your site.
