Intellilinks was launched in 2009. Intellilinks specialises in CPM text links in which, as a publisher, you sell textlinks which will appear on your site for a continuing monthly payment from advertisers.
How does Intellilinks Operate?
Once you have submitted your website, Intellilinks review your site and based on quality and traffic size, they will automatically suggest a price for advertisers to buy text links from you. This is usually between $20-$100 per month. If you wish the price to be changed you can do so by emailing the support team. This monthly payment makes Intellilinks especially attractive to publishers as there is no dependance on clicks to generate an income.
- Advertisers do not see the URL of your website until they pay, therefore making it an unbiased system based solely on keywords, page rank and traffic.
- No minimum payouts. Payments are made monthly via PayPal.
- One of the easiest ad networks to set up. For wordpress, all you do is install a plugin and then activate it.
- You have the choice whether to automatically approve ads that will appear, or you can be emailed every time an offer is made and you manually approve.
- Instant approval if Intellilinks review your site as having sufficient traffic. One of our test sites was page rank 2 with traffic of only 150 visitors per day and was approved on the spot.
- Doesn’t use any ad space so can be used with other ad networks.
- Great support which includes live chat (only available during normal working hours).
- Supports global traffic.
- Attractive looking link ads that integrate into websites seamlessly. Two ad types available, textlinks inside the content and related textlinks that appear inside of the sidebar (see below)
- You can be waiting a while for an advertiser to make an offer. This can be helped by concentrating on which keywords and title you give your site in the marketplace. Check the marketplace (its in the menu at the top of their website) and see what similar sites are using first.
Signing up for Intellinks
Signing up is free and takes less than a minute. Once you have registered you can then submit your site and if approved, you will be given the wordpress plugin to download and activate on your site. Everything else is taken care of by Intellilinks. If you chose the option of auto approving ads then you will start to see ads on your site as soon as somebody makes an offer. Otherwise you will be sent an email to approve or decline at your discretion.
We do recommend checking out the marketplace on Intellinks website as you can see exactly how much your competition is asking for so you can set your price accordingly. If you have a higher page rank and more links then obviously you can push the price up a bit further and still be an attractive investment for the advertisers. Intellilinks are on of the top adsense alternatives.
