Make Money Online – Post Level Text Link Ads

Text Link Ads will soon be rolling out a new revenue source for bloggers call Post Level Text Link Ads. What is Post Level TLA? According to Patrick Gavin, Text Link Ads’ President:

What this means is that in addition to your run of site TLA’s you will be able to serve up a single TLA at the post level below each qualifying post in your blog. As you know with the growth of social networking news sites, individual blog posts can be very valuable in terms of traffic and direct links to these specific posts. These popular posts can now be monetized with our new plugin.

Only one ad will be served at the bottom of the post and it will allow the advertiser to have a full 80 character title and 150 letter description. You will still have full editorial control over the advertisers.

Post Level TLA For Traffic & SEO

The TLA Plugin allows Text Link Ads to determine popular posts on your blog and add them to their marketplace. Post Level TLA offers advertisers targeted blog posts to buy links in. Moreover, because they can select the anchor text as well, the links offer tremendous SEO potential. For example, many of my financial and credit card posts rank on page one of Google for investment related keywords. Buying a Post Level TLA on any of those posts would mean targeted traffic and better search ranking of the advertiser’s site for the keywords they are targeting.

Like normal text link ads, pricing for Post Level TLA will be offered on a flat rate monthly basis. The price will be based on post traffic, page rank, number of links to the post, topic category and other factors that TLA won’t reveal.

When Will It Be Available?

Post Level TLA is currently in private beta testing. Full roll out is expected later this week. Post Level TLA is only available for WordPress blog. When the system is ready for full roll out, publisher will have to upload a new Plugin and replace their current TLA Plugin. All current TLA publishers running WordPress blogs will be able to take advantage of Post Level TLA.

If you have not signed up for Text Link Ads, I highly recommend it. TLA is one of this blog’s biggest moneymakers. With the addition of Post Level TLA, I see it helping me make more money online.

    Wow, that sounds like a great new source of revenue. I foresee your revenue going up big time in the near future, John 🙂

    1. KidBlogger says:

      yea.. with not just TLA on sidebars but also within posts! nice

      1. Jonix says:

        it’s almost like th V7N deal

  2. Kumiko says:

    Looks good! Any chance of you doing a Kontera-style partnership to let the little guys and girls grab a slice of the TLA pie?


    1. James says:

      Kumiko, he has one.
      Check here

      1. James says:

        Opps. never mind. I misunderstood. 😳

        1. Jonix says:

          🙂 you did

    2. Jonix says:

      kumiko it’s not difficult to enter text link ads. A partnership like kontera it’s not necessary in this case, i think. Did you try to enter TLA?

      1. Alex says:

        If you ask me, I wouldn’t want to go into TLA before I can charge a good price for the link..

      2. derrich says:

        Yeah. Anyone should be able to join TLA.

  3. Alex says:

    It’s to bad that Post Level is only available for wordpress 😥

    1. Jonix says:

      Alex, is the best script for blogs. Blogger blogs unfortunally have many downtimes because of their servers. Can’t you change to wordpress?

    2. KidBlogger says:

      yes? could you… it’s just cheap.. you can buy a shared hosting wp blog for about 3 bucks!

      1. Alex says:

        At this time I’m in the process of making money without spending any cash at all, so wordpress is out of the question.

        1. Alex says:

          Hey, my URL didn’t show above..

        2. Jonix says:

          If need free quality hosting for wordpress, just send me a messagem at my community in mybloglog

      2. Dave says:

        Gotta spend money to make money 🙂

        1. Alex says:

          It’s harder, but manageable.

  4. Scott says:

    Although I do run TLA on my sites I do find these new in post ads rather ho-hum in regards to bringing anything new to the TLA.

    I think it really cheapens the article in my opinion. Unless of course the ads are contextual. But isn’t that what Google is for?

    Maybe I’m missing something?

    1. Gath says:

      I don’t think the ads are contextual – but you get to approve/reject the ads before they are shown. That way you don’t have to show any ‘FREE Male Enhancement’ ads (unless you want to :mrgreen: )

      1. Jonix says:

        ehehe, i agree with that. a blog like this one, shouldn’t have that kind of ads.

        1. Marc says:

          Yeah, I think that’s the one frontier that John will hopefully avoid 🙂

          1. Marc says:

            Well paint me silly…

            John you evil mogul you… I just noticed you updated your paid listings with a brand new free one 😉

    2. Dave says:

      Why do you find it ho hum? It’s an amazing way to add more residuals to your blog. Especially if you have a LOT of posts.

  5. Yet another great way to add to the monetization of blogs. I need to get the traffic first though. Because without the traffic, the best ad company in the world will not help.


    1. KidBlogger says:

      you betcha! but I think if you have traffic but no PR TLA won’t approve you, is that true?

  6. James says:

    I like this idea. I wonder why it took them so long to come up with it.

    1. The people at text link ads have been doing really smart things. It will be interesting to see what they come up with next.

    2. Jonix says:

      It take time to something like that

    3. KidBlogger says:

      it really takes time because they are making sure it will be effective… 😀

  7. Chris M says:

    Interesting, I have no had an success with TLA as of yet, but I am working on a few projects, which will hopefully see some revenue 🙂

    Thanks for the info John!

    1. Jonix says:

      It’ll take time, be patient chris, TLA will generate income.

      1. KidBlogger says:

        yes, i hope so… is there any alternatives for TLA, just wondering?

        1. Gath says:

          Try selling links directly through digital point.

          1. Alex says:

            You can sell banners, links, even forum signatures..

        2. Dave says:

          If you have high traffic on your blog, you can just post the link offer right on your blog 🙂

        3. Jonix says:

          Also there are V7N Contextual Network. It’s something similiar to this new approach that TLA will launch. V7N was the first.

  8. Garry Conn says:

    Sounds pretty cool. Something I will look for in the future. I have TLA on one of my sites finally and it has been doing very well. Looking forward to the PLTLA’s.

    1. KidBlogger says:

      is it true that they only accpet sites with pr?

      1. Jonix says:

        No. You don’t need PR, but you need at least an alexa rating 700.000 lower, the time of your blog is also important, and the number of backlinks.

  9. Dave says:

    Yeah, it’s difficult, you need to build up traffic before you can take advantage of something like this. Once you get the traffic though, you are doing good 🙂

    1. Alex says:

      Once you get traffic, you’re doing good with anything, right?

      1. Marc says:

        Pretty much. At the end of the day, that’s what advertisers are interested in.

  10. Thanks I’ll take some info

  11. KidBlogger says:

    I hope my blog will be approve, TLA didn’t approve it bec. it doesn’t have any PR 👿 but it has high alexa and uniques per day.. 👿

  12. Gath says:

    I think this is a great idea. It gives advertisers a chance to buy a spot on one related post, without paying to be on all the posts.

    Publishers could lose out (and so could TLA) if advertisers embrace this model & abandon the sitewide link buys that they do now with TLA.

    1. Marc says:

      I think it’s a fantastic development too. I don’t think they’ll lose too much sitewide business though. There’s still a lot of benefit to the sitewide links and there’s a lot of overhead involved in the single post stuff.

  13. Ma2T says:

    Sounds like a great idea to me, on one of my blogs TLA is my biggest earner, im always sold out of ads (max 10). PR of 6.
    An additional source from them sounds great.

    1. Marc says:

      Congrats! I’ve still got some slots to fill but hopefully someone will jump on board and buy them out.

  14. Matt Jones says:

    Sounds good, but I’m guessing you have to have your site accepted by the publisher program same as usual? … I need that PR update :mrgreen:

    1. Alex says:

      PR update is coming soon…

      1. Jonix says:

        PR updates happen every day, Alex. The supposed PR Update that you see, it’s not the real PR that google have internally, which he uses in is algorithm.

        1. Alex says:

          Yeah, I guess you’re right Jonix, thanks!

  15. Amanda says:

    I need a PR period ! my alexa is getting better my PR sucks.

  16. Xof says:

    Too much ads will kill the ads 👿

    1. Jonix says:

      It’s just a question of integration. Integrate the ads well, and you’re on. See the example of this blog, see the example of the big network of blogs b5media (they are full of ads). All this examples are successful blogs that are growing day by day.

  17. Dave says:

    Not really, look how ad packed John Chow is and he just keeps making more money.

    1. Alex says:

      When a blog is good, its look doesn’t matter!

      1. Jonix says:

        Allways matter alex, the look at least must be reasonable. “The eyes are the first to ear” 😉

        1. Alex says:

          That’s true if you’re a first time visitor. But would you give up on John Chow dot Com if it becomes to cluttered with ads? I think not..

          1. Marc says:

            Jonix does have a point though. While John’s ads are all over, the posts are still very clear and present in the layout. If it became difficult to read posts, that could be a turn-off.

  18. Mr. Red says:

    They just sent me an email on this, i’m going to have to test it out, see how well it works.
