Few years back I had interviewed Infolinks on this blog and it has maintained its reputation and has grown even strong in the past couple of years – Lets explore how in this blog post.
Big advantage over Google Adsense – angular.js
We all agree that Google Adsense is the best ad network and is #1 in providing the best revenue share to its publishers and works best for most advertisers. But the biggest drawback and shame for Google is, Google Adsense doesn’t work on sites which are developed from Google’s own angular. Yes, I know we can write directives and make Adsense ads work on these sites, but read adsense policy carefully, it violets Adsense terms to make it work on ajax sites.
Note: We’ve a good competitor for Google Adsense, which I’ll mention in my upcoming post. Stay tuned. – You’ll love it. I’m serious.
Infolinks is the best adnetwork for websites built with Google’s angular.js
Infolinks Products / ad types
Simply turn ON and OFF the services(products) like – intext, infold, intag, inframe, inscreen, inarticle(beta) from inside your infolinks dashboard and it’ll reflect on your site(s).
intext: InText highlights keywords and every time a visitor hovers over them, a related ad appears.
infold: InFold displays ads relevant to what your users are searching for, while infusing another SEO layer to your site.
intag: It displays relevant keywords list at the bottom of the page and shows ads once the mouse is hovered upon the keyword. Looks somewhat similar to Adsense link ads.
inframe: Based on your website’s category, InFrame will display attractive banner ads in the margins of your website’s pages.
inscreen: InScreen, an interstitial ad, is driven both by user intent and website content, resulting in well-timed display ads for your website.
Infolinks and Adsense together?
I get this asked many times, so I want to clarify this in this blog post – yes, you can use Infolinks and adsense together on same blog / site and it does not violate either adsense nor Infolinks policy.
I’ve to tell this – Infolinks has one of the best customer support. You need not be their premium publisher or someone getting set number of earnings or traffic, they still treat you like their best publisher.
MobiSphere.in Top Earner
MobiSphere is a discounts / coupons website which is built using angular. I simply copied Infolinks ads to the index page and the ads started immediately on all my pages. No hacks, no directives.
Strong Adsense Alternative?
Even though Infolinks is a very good adnetwork, it is not an alternative to adsense yet. I can say its a complimentary ad network that you can use along with Google’s Adsense.
Infolinks takes some time to learn about your website content and the traffic segment your blog/website receives. You need to give some time before you can see better ads and revenue for your site via InfoLinks. You can always mail their support team to ask what you can do better to get good revenue.
If you’re using intag Infolinks ads, then make sure to turn on the ‘Revenue Booster’, it’ll increase the click-through-rates and hence your revenue.
Ads Turn ON / OFF
The Infolinks off tag
<!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->turns off the script. Place it just before the section of text in which you do not want InText ads. You should put the Infolinks on tag
<!--INFOLINKS_ON-->when you want to turn the script on again (when you want ads to appear).
