Infolinks Review

infolinks signupInfolinks 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.


infolinkslinksThe 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.

infolinkssearchThe 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.

infolinkswordThe intext ads will appear to visitors as usual hyperlinks on specific words in your website.

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.

infolinksframeFor 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.

Infolinks can be used as an adsense alternative or in conjunction with Adsense as a supplementary income. Infolinks provide more varieties of ads, which have a fresher look about them, encouraging a higher click through rate. As for Infolinks CPC rates, Adsense generally outperforms Infolinks but we like Infolinks for the option of monetising as an additional revenue stream.

    I have in region of 5000 unique visitors per month and am making some money with infolinks. Not a lot but its something, and very easy to install so im happy!

  2. Joseph says

    I’m finding the intag ads are working best for my site. I think they are not so intrusive and people are familiar with being able to hover over links..

    • Dave Erin says

      As infolinks is a CPC Network it is hard to determine what the advertisers would be willing to pay per click within your niche. I would think though, to be anything of significant value, you need to be pushing 500 page views or more each day.

      Hi Tuhin

      Thanks for stopping by. The earnings from Infolinks are dependent on a number of factors and it would be impossible to say how much each click would earn. Good luck with them if you do sign up!

    • Dave Erin says

      Hi Abid, thanks for the comment. We like infolinks too. Let us know how you get on with them.

    • Dave Erin says

      Hi Abiranjan,

      Infolinks will still be seen by visitors located in India, but US visitors generally will generate a higher CPC rate when they click on the ads.

    I removed it…///
    But some facts i got.
    Infolinks is better than Chitika on earning basis.
    But infolinks links make content confusing to the visitor. some times they think that dotted or underlined links content some useful links.

    • Dave Erin says

      Hi Peter

      Adsense and Infolinks are compatible and work well together. I’ve read that 60% of Infolinks publishers use Adsense as well. It shouldn’t have a negative impact on your earnings but every website is different. The best way to know is to run your own tests with and without the Infolinks ads and decide.

      Good luck with it!

      Hi Ankush

      The amount you earn from Infolinks is dependent on a lot of different factors so I wouldn’t be able to give you an estimate. The best way to find out is to sign up and see if Infolinks works for you, if you’re not happy with the amount you’re earning after a month or two you can always look for an alternative.

      Hi Monty,

      I don’t know what the average epcm would be for you, it will depend on a number of factors including your source of traffic. Best thing to do is to sign up and test it for yourself. If you’re not happy with the rate you can always try another ad network.

    • Dave Browne says

      That’s great news Anand, please come back and let us know what you think of them after a few months.

  5. says

    I recently included info links on my website without knowing that it’s no longer cpc based. Does ecpm means the payouts would be much lower now on an average? Also is there any other ad network recommended?
