There is no limit to the scope and scale of the Internet. It is one technology that has produced more millionaires than any other.
There are so many opportunities for making money online but most of us don’t know about them. Those who knew about them went ahead and made their tons.
One of the common methods used for generating a steady stream of income is to do blogging.
The strategy revolves around getting the most out a website and its web traffic through monetization.
Every blogger will create a Google AdSense account to monetize his blog site.
But here we will discuss a more lucrative earning opportunity that could generate more income than blogging. It is Infolinks.
Signing-up with Infolinks
It is quite easy to sign up with Infolinks. All you have to do is to visit the Infolinks website and click the “Join us” link on the top of the page. The following image provides a screenshot of the joining page.
You could either provide your details such as name and email address or sign-up using your Facebook account. Either way, make sure to provide your website URL.
Each account goes through a validation process, which takes between 24 and 48 hours. You will receive a confirmation email once your application is approved.
Once your application is accepted and account created, you can determine the integration of the Infolinks code. This will vary from one platform to another.
For example, the process is easiest for WordPress sites. It is as easy as downloading the plug-in and activating it.1
Everything is executed by the plug-in and there is no need for any manual activity. You could however determine the ad that should appear on your web pages. You have the option to choose from 4 unique ads – Infold, Intext, InTag and Inframe ads.
I know you will be concerned if these ads will conflict with AdSense or look similar.
The fact is that they are different and don’t interfere with AdSense activity on your website.
It is also allowed to change the features of the ads in a way that they can be customized to your blog’s colors, fonts and theme.
1. Infold Ads
Infold ads have the highest conversion rates. These ads are displayed at the bottom of the pages. The unique thing about Infolinks is that it will display the ads based on two factors:
The keywords used in your blog post
The search queries made by your page’s natural visitors
The benefit of displaying at the bottom is that it doesn’t interfere with the user experience and also reduces the bounce rate.
Another feature is that it will fold down below the line after showing for a few seconds. So there is minimum obtrusion.

2. Intext Ads
If Infold ads have the highest conversion rates, Intext ads are the most popular ones. They are shown as hyperlinked text within the content of the blog posts. They will be highlighted whenever users hover the mouse over them.
This is how Intext ads look in their normal state:
This is how the ad pops up when anyone hovers the mouse over it.
Here again Infolinks brings the principle of non-obtrusion. The Intext ad will disappear if the user doesn’t click on the ad.
Although Infolinks doesn’t allow you to customize these ads, you can certainly decide the number of ads you will have on your pages.
3. InTag Ads
InTag ads have a bunch of relevant keywords inserted in your blog post. A splendid example of the ad is given here:
When a user hovers the mouse over the keywords, it looks like this:
InTag ads are designed based on relevant tags.
I recommend customizing InTag ads based on your blog site’s theme, colors and layout.
