Make Money Online with Infolinks

I like to welcome Infolinks as the official in-text ad provider for John Chow dot Com. Infolinks serves those double underline links you see on the blog. When a reader mouse over the link, a relavent ad displays. When the mouse is moved away, the ad disappear.

The nice thing about Infolinks is that it allows you to make money without taking up or replacing any current ad space. It’s like getting free money! I was an early adapter to in-text advertising because I didn’t want to solely rely on AdSense. Google allows in-text ads to run along side AdSense ads. For publishers, blogs and webmasters that are looking to diversify their ad partners, in-text advertising is far and away the best accompaniment to Google AdSense.

The Highest Revenue Share In The Industry

What makes Infolinks stand out is they offer the highest revenue share in the industry. Other in-text ad providers give only 40% to 50% revenue share. Infolinks gives their publishers 70% and they give that even if you are a smaller blog. With Infolinks, you can get the same revenue share as a site getting over 10 million page views a month, which is what other in-text ad providers want in order to give that high a rev-share.

Access To Big Advertisers for The Little Guy

In addition to the 70% payout, publishers signing up through will automatically be allowed to take advantage of all of the premium ads that other in-text companies normally reserve for more brand focused sites. Infolinks is the only in-text company to utilize a 3rd party to verify the quality of their publisher’s traffic and take the manual guess work out of it. For young publishers who are still trying to build their brand, not being giving the same chance at higher paying advertisers can be frustrating.

Infolinks judges all publishers as the same and let’s technology determine who gets access to the higher paying advertisers and who does not. As a publisher, if you are doing everything right, no matter how big or small, you will get the same quality of advertiser as the largest publishers. Finally the little guys have a chance to compete with the big guys for ad quality and gain access to the highest paying advertisers. With Infolinks, not only do you get the highest payout, you get access to the higher paying ads as well. Other benefits include:

  • The most advanced in-text algorithm on the market. In-text is only successful when readers want to click on the ads. Infolinks has proven in head to head match-ups with other in-text companies, that given the same amount of inventory over the same period of time, Infolinks generates more clicks.
  • Infolinks has become the unquestioned leader in monetizing international traffic with the highest paying advertisers for traffic generated outside the US. No matter if your website is in English, Spanish, French or German or if readers are coming from places outside the US- Infolinks can monetize it.

Easy Setup – There’s a Plugin for That

Getting Infolinks up and running takes only a minute. All you have to do is go sign up and then install a small piece of code onto your blog. If you’re running WordPress (or Blogger, Joomla or Drupal), Infolinks has a plugin that will do all the setup for you. You could literally be making money within a few minutes of signing up!

Completely Free To Join

Infolinks is completely free to join and there are no long term contracts to sign. Try Infolinks on your blog and if it doesn’t make more than your current in-text solution, then just switch back. However, I’m sure you’ll find that higher payout equals higher revenue for you. And by signing up via my partnership with Infolinks, you’ll gain access all those high paying premium ads that are normally reserved for big publishers. Just put “From John Chow dot Com” in the comments of the Infolinks application and they’ll take care of you.

    What happened to Kontera? It seems they have recently made it more accessible to smaller publishers like me, when before they were exclusive to larger more trafficked websites. Does anyone else out there have experience using both Kontera and Infolinks? I’d love to know some of the pros and cons of each.

    1. John Chow says:

      Infolinks accepts small publishers as well. However, they offer a much higher revenue share so you should make more money with Infolinks than Kontera. Also, if you sign up through me, Infolinks will give you access to higher paying ads that are normally reserved for the big publishers.

      1. Abhik says:

        I am using infolinks since last 7~8 months and it’s performing 3x better than Kontera.

        1. Max Lee says:

          Kontera sucks caz those people took ur money and ran, the worst is they dont care if people like me talk sh** about them, thats why I left kontera, well, just saying, infolinks could be much better if payout is good.

        2. there are many negative review about kontera.

          Infolinks just capitalised those negative reviews.

          1. I am a small publisher but After I contacted to the Kontera they created my account but then also I don’t use Kontera because I found Infolinks better.

        3. PPC Ian says:

          Thanks for sharing, the stats are really helpful. I’m thinking of giving Infolinks a try.

          1. Hey John,

            This is great stuff. Knowing what works the best is not that easy to find. I would have thought that Kontera is better if it weren’t for this post.

            Having others share their experience here is super.


          2. yes now a days more and more people is going for infolinks.

    2. Mathew Day says:

      I’ve noticed a lot more people using Infolinks rather than Kontera nowadays.

      1. Yes this is quite right.

        All top bloggers are giving preference to infolinks instead of Kontera.

        If they all are doing this than believe me guys there must be some genuine reason, so go for it.

  2. d3so says:

    Thanks for the info.
    I’ll definitely check then out and give them a try.

    1. yes in our industry trial and error methods is quite useful.

      Best of luck.

      1. d3so says:

        Yes, I signed up for infolinks and it’s running on my blog. I’m just waiting to be officially accepted in.

        1. Please share your experience with us.

  3. So you reccomend InfoLinks over Kontera? hmmm interesting!!

    How much per month did you make with Kontera if you dont mind sharing?? I find it hard to make good money with them since they pay pennies per click..

    1. John Chow says:

      Infolinks pays more than Kontera. That’s why I run them. Everything else being equal, the deciding factor is what makes you more money.

      1. john is recommending infolinks.

  4. Blogging says:

    infolinks is pay to click or pay to view?

    1. John Chow says:

      Pay Per Click, just like Google AdSense.

      1. Abhik says:

        Amm.. They also have CPM Ads for premium publishers.

      2. Blogging says:

        Google AdSense can earn more!

  5. Arcade Blog says:

    Thanks Chow,

    I remember signing up to infolinks like 2 years ago when my personal gaming community website was brand new. I stopped using it when someone said to remove the ads until the website grew. I’ll add it to my blog to see how the blog does.

    1. It should do well now if you are getting enough traffic.

  6. Jose says:

    Never tried this kind of monetization. I think I will try this with some sites with low ctr and high traffic.

    1. Today i see the infolinks is disappear from any website in the world. I’m not sure about the issue whats up with this

  7. Keith says:

    Is this offer only valid for a certain time, and does it apply to a website as opposed to a WP blog? I plan on starting a blog soon, but have not yet.

    1. John Chow says:

      This offer is good for any sites that you own. It does not have to be a blog.

      1. Sorry John But you haven’t told is this offer (advantage of all of the premium ads) only valid for a certain time or end soon ?

  8. saju says:

    It does not display relevant ad, i can see matrimonial site advertisement on this page , Infolink really sucks. they paid me 0.36$ for 120 clicks

    1. James M. says:

      So true. I have Infolinks on my blog, too. Thing is, the ads seem to be of random nature. Most are not related to the current post.

      1. Atniz says:

        You must have targeting for some really low keyword in your blog. Just keep adding more contents to your blog, you will see more money coming your way from infolinks. I earned nearly $10 in few days from infolinks earlier. Just some conflict with my private ads clients, need to remove infolinks from my blog. Otherwise, it is a great platform.

    2. I think thier paying ratio is better I got $1 in only 6 clicks.

  9. I’ve also used kontera but really didn’t make much from it. Not sure about infolinks. Isn’t adsense a lot better than contextual links?

    1. John Chow says:

      If you’re allowed to run both at the same time why not do it? You’re sure to make more than just running AdSense by itself.

  10. Do you use this instead of Kotera now? What makes it better?

    1. Abhik says:

      A better revenue sharing, perhaps.

      1. Faster loading of ads and page than Kontera makes it better.

  11. Abhik says:

    So, it’s Infolinks.
    Man, you’re going to get a phone call or email from Kontera offering a better ratio anytime soon πŸ˜‰

  12. Partha says:

    It is a very lucrative offer signing up Infolinks through John Chow. Sure to do that and at the same time trying to get more traffic.

  13. Atniz says:

    I have used infolinks earlier on my blog too. Must say one good alternative of Google adsense. But, have some conflict with paid post buyers. They don’t want their content to be messed with infolinks ads. So, I don’t really know how to remove these links from only certain page leads me to giving up on infolinks.

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s really simple to do. You just need to insert a div tage before and after the post. Then no links will show up on that blog post. I’ll post a how to on that soon.

      1. Atniz says:

        Thanks for the tips. Hope to see more tips on how to make our infolinks earn higher too.

      2. Lynn says:

        I would like to know this as well. I tried to use the section of the WordPress Plug in where you can exclude certain page numbers, but this is not working.

        1. Lynn says:

          I found another site that explained that if you want to exclude Infolinks on a particular post or page, you just add the code at the very beginning of the post or page. You must be in HTML view to do this. I use WordPress, so I make sure that I’m in the HTML editor when I add the code, not the visual editor. I just tried it and it worked. It only excluded the infolinks on the one post/page that I put the code on, but the Infolinks were still showing on the other posts and pages, just like I wanted. Seems to work great.

          1. Lynn says:

            The code I entered does not show up in my reply. I will try it here by putting it in between parentheses


          2. Lynn says:

            It still won’t show up. I guess that I cannot share the small snippet of code. I would include the link to the website that I found the info on, but I’m not sure John would want me to. I apologize for so many posts.

  14. I’ve been using Infolinks for about two years now. They came to me & offered their service & I decided to look into them. I love it. Much better than Kontera.

    The other thing I like is that they don’t make blogs go slow. I noticed that with Kontera, my one would show this blank white page for a second before loading the actual site. Never had that problem with Infolinks.

  15. I have used infolinks, it increased my income 10%, try good.

  16. hubpk says:

    infolinks earning is very small or slow vs google adsense but i did not like inline ads.

    1. Abhik says:

      They both are totally different.. Adsense is contextual and Infolinks is in-text.

  17. I have seen these adverts around and been wondering about them but haven’t tested them yet. Don’t think i will until my blog gets a huge following because i can see them putting some users off and i’m more interested in making my blog grow at the moment.

    1. Yes You should grow your blog first because you can only make money with ads if you have at least 1000 daily visitors, I am blogging from last 6 months and getting only 100 daily.

  18. Moses Yoon says:

    Thank you very much for sharing this information. This is my very first comment on your site, John. I’ve been following you for the past year.

    I started a new Korean American website based in Philly. As I read your posts, I am doing my best to implement your recommendations. Thank you so much for all this valuable information!


  19. Abhik says:

    A question. Did they (infolinks) provided an affiliate section to track clicks and signups? In my case, no.

    I know a few people who signed up using my affiliate link, but I can’t track them and can’t see my earnings also.

    1. Paul B says:

      Same. I was talking about Infolinks more than 2 years ago

      Since then I’ve referred dozens of people (that I know about) but they’ve never implemented any sort of affiliate management/reporting. I’ve never received a penny from them for my referrals. Also worth noting that their eCPMs have droppe off in the last 6 months. A couple of years ago Infolinks were on fire, more of a warm glow about them at the moment (but still a LOT better than Kontera)

  20. Wiguan says:

    I’ve been with Infolinks long before.
    Then how should I ask for that premium advertiser ads to be appear on my websites?

    1. You can only get premium advertisers if you are a big brand or you will have to join again through John’s link.

      1. Atniz says:

        I’m already a member there, is it possible to get premium ads on my blog too?

  21. Infolinks is much better than kontera. But they show ads linking back to their home page which will be paying less (I’m sure).

    No matter how many ads you allowed, it will be showing only 2 or 3 real ads in one page.

    John, any way your link will help to existing infolinks users to get higher paying ads?


  22. In-text advertising saves spaces on the blogs but I don’t like to use then because I don’t want to disturb my readers by showing them unwanted underlined texts.

    1. Atniz says:

      But, it will definitely add more revenue in your pocket by end of the month.

      1. I don’t think so because my readers will disturbed they can leave my blog then I will also not get what I am getting now.

  23. Fantastic going to give it a try. Thanks john

  24. Very interesting, I am going to try infolinks now. πŸ™‚

  25. fas says:

    BUt wont that spoil the reader experience.

  26. Lynn says:

    I’ve been pleased with Infolinks. It is also very easy to set up.

    1. Now days most of the ad providers are making their integration method easier.

  27. Mathew Day says:

    You really can’t beat 70% payout and I like how the small blogs are treated the same as the highly trafficked ones.

    1. Atniz says:

      The customer service is excellent. I’m not sure her name, “Sarah” maybe, she is good and very fast replying.

  28. PPC Ian says:

    For those currently running Infolinks, what kind of CPMs are you seeing? I’d consider placing this on my sites, but only if I can get at least 5 CPM (I’m in very high CPM verticals). Otherwise, I can’t rationalize it since it messes with user experience a bit and also would add more overhead/Javascript to sites which is something I don’t like doing…

    1. Atniz says:

      It is depending on your advertisers link and clicks you get. Why not give it a try for a week or month to check its potential. For me, it helps me to earn additional $10+ a week.

      1. no says:

        $10 is next to nothing.

  29. Adam Snyder says:

    I have been using info links on many sites of mine and the revenue it great. This is the highest paying network that I know of and the advertisers are great.

  30. I have been using infolinks on one of my blogs and I have to say its performing much better than I had ever expected. I really think infolinks can someday replace adsense.

    1. Abhik says:

      That’s NOT gonna possible πŸ˜‰

  31. aatif says:

    using it since 3 months . and it is better than kontera for me .

  32. Just getting my feet wet with infolinks but found this info to be very helpful..Thanks!!!

  33. This’ll be the first time I’m going to use in-text ads, thanks for the recommendation and I hope everything turns out well.

  34. This info has really been an eye opener and I have just registered my account at infolink.

  35. David M says:

    I signed up yesterday for infolinks and it was approved today. The code was easy to set up on my website soon after I signed up. The ads are up and running today. Some of the ads seem a bit odd (not sure what a dolphin has to do with a volkswagon model) but others are fine. Hope they get better. Thanks for the recommendation. David

  36. I’m going to try InfoLinks. Thanks all for the comments, and I hope that I can be experiencing the same as you folks!

    Let’s just hope that the payout is really better than Kontera. Are there any others out there that is worth trying?

  37. Baccarat411 says:

    I’ve never tried PPC before, but since you blogged about it John, I’m going to incorporate it into my blog. Thanks for always updating us on the latest Ad Networks.

  38. Thanks, taking your advise I just signed up now for my Website.

  39. ClixSense says:

    Nice and useful info,but do you know is there any similar in-text advertiser that uses AlertPay or MoneyBookers as its payment processors?

  40. I have used Infolinks as well and so far they never miss any single payment. I would recommend them as well for additional monetization on your blog.

  41. Dan Lew says:

    I think I will install it now and give it a shot

    1. Fernando says:

      You should, I use it on every niche site I have. It loads really fast and always pays in time via paypal.
      A tip from my experience, I’ve tried the Infotags, didn’t really work on me, but I’ve heard some people got like 30% more.
      I wonder if this has anything to be with the placement of it. Any suggestions?

  42. Well, I believe you are lucky to earn that big from infolinks.

  43. Is it possible to have info links and kontera running at the same time ? wanna try this so as to know which one is good after a month on my site…

    1. You can’t use kontera and infolinks on the same. Either use kontera or infolinks.
      Well, i would say… use infolinks rather. πŸ˜€

  44. Farhan says:

    I have recently started using infolinks lets see how it goes

  45. Andrea says:

    When surfing on other sites I find infolinks kinda of annoying, but now that I know that there is money in it. I’m considering adding it to my blog lol Is that wrong of me?

    1. Make Money says:

      How would you not know that there is money in advertising? Infolinks isn’t used to send people away from a site…it’s used to monetize the site. I wouldn’t put anything on my site that sends people away unless it was an EXCELLENT product or I was paid to send them there.

  46. make money says:

    This helps me a lot. I’m currently using Kontera on my site and it hasn’t been performing well AT ALL. I’ve earned less than $1 on 10 clicks…horrible. I’ll have to try out infolinks. You say if we sign up through you then we get access to higher paying ads?

  47. ata says:

    Yeah, received my first payment of over $200 on the same day this article was published. I like to alternate with different advertisers every month. Although, the pay is better with adsense and others, but in terms of ‘in-text’ advertising, Infolinks is certainly No:1!

  48. vutha says:

    It is great site, I used it more than one year and I got paid two times already.

  49. I’ve tried Infolinks for my personal blog but ever since, I have not been earning. Maybe it’s just that people are not interested on clicking on my content.

  50. Barry Wells says:

    Hi John, thanks for the detailed post. I have seen info clicks in operation on a few sites and have often wondered about them.

    As a result of this post i have been over to info clicks and have set up an account, which has been approved. However i haven’t activated the plugin yet as a friend of mine that has the same wordpress theme activated it and it messed all of his colour scheme up.

    Obviously i don’t want to do that so am a little concerned. Have you heard of this before? If so how can i avoid it happening?

    Thanks John,

    1. R.O.M.E.L.O. says:

      No offense but I think you are commenting on the wrong post. It’s infolinks not info clicks. O_o

      1. Barry Wells says:

        Sorry for using the wrong word, my mistake, but I am on the correct post.

        Can anyone answer the question on info Links messing up the blogs colour scheme?


  51. Thanks for sharing this. I have sign up with infolink after reading your post (6nov) and should be able to collect my first payment by end Dec. Thanks

  52. I am the member of infolinks but not using because was thinking it’s just a crap for the bloggers but after looking this detailed and powerful review here, interested to use and get the value as explained above.

  53. Nej says:

    Signed up with infolinks after reading your post. Hopefully it will work out great for me..Thanks for the info and the great offer.

  54. R.O.M.E.L.O. says:

    I have infolinks on my site and I just received payment last month. πŸ™‚

  55. James Rose says:

    I have never heard of infolinks before this but it seems to be a good idea! I will sign up soon so i can because I want to get my Boston IT Consulting company off the ground and be a reliable place for new customers. Infolinks have clearly worked for other people and I want in on it too!

  56. I have Infolinks in my site since few months, it works very well in addition to Adsense and also Chitika.

  57. I am agree with you, Infolinks pays more than Kontera. I have tried both inline ad networks, now not running any of these. But when we compare infolinks earnings with Google Adsense I think I am better without any inline ad network.

  58. Darren Marsh says:

    I’ve been with info links for about two weeks now and I’m about to give up. They brag about the high cpc but i’m getting around $0.04 per click on pages that I get over $1.50 for adwords. My CTR has gone down a little on other adverts so ill give it a week or two more and if there isn’t any changes ill be taking it off..

  59. Benny says:

    Infolinks is much better then Kontera, their ads seems have more Impresssion and more clicks, we can also get pay through paypal, i switch Kontera to Infolinks now

  60. Babaji M P says:

    Infolinks is “THE BEST” in text ads.

  61. Sharat says:

    Infolinks is better than others πŸ™‚

  62. Suharto says:

    I am awaiting my registration approval at infolinks, being a neophyte I know it’s really a hard start and I need much help. For those who wants to help pls visti my blog at and look for the mistakes and I am looking up for your suggestions. Thank you so much everybody.

    1. @suharto.
      as usual infolinks need 2 days to review your application. please wait and check your inbox, if more than days you can contact infolinks support.

      infolinks is the best since I use them 1,5 ago! they are make me rich!

      1. Suharto says:

        Thank you so much for sparing me a few minutes of your time. I look forward for a partnership helping those in need. God Bless to the icon.

  63. i will try this ad network for sure…

  64. mas bayu says:

    thanks for the info that is given, turned out to join in infolinks very easy, not like adsense

  65. Yeah InfoLinks has been good to me this year, I made almost $7,000 in November and they also named me website of the month. I never came anywhere close to making that with Vibrant Media or Kontera.

  66. Infolinks is very good among its kind of services, I used it in one of my sites. But this won’t give you major income, you will need other services to get the money-wheel running.

  67. Infolinks is one the best and highest revenue sharing service. I tried few similar services and finally fixed with infolinks. But recently, eCPM rates are getting a bit lowered comparing past few months.

  68. ikki says:

    i think i will use infolinks

  69. I have had a lot of success with this system, I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants something more than just adsense.

  70. δΏ‘ζ˜₯ε“₯,εΎ—ζ°Έη”Ÿ

  71. Hey JC,

    Just signed up to InfoLinks via your URL. Thanks for the post.

    I’m also trying out Vibrant at the same time. Hopefully it goes well.

  72. Edison says:

    Dear John, Can you assist me in putting code on post where we do not wanna infolink to be in..

  73. TheTechMedia says:

    Signed-up for infolink and got approved my 2 sites very fast. Awasome. Looking forward for great income in coming days.

  74. Joey says:

    Thanks for the tip. I guess when Google AdWords dominate the market, you need something enticing in order to make you switch from them. Looks like Infolinks is pretty decent!

  75. David says:

    Thanks John share tips earn money with infolinks.

  76. With my personal experience, Infolinks is 100 times better than Kotera.

  77. I’ve joined infolinks but my income is still small .. still much to learn

  78. Lisa says:

    Great stats for infolinks thanks for sharing.

  79. Jimmy says:

    Thanks john for sharing that………..infolinks is now emerging as an alternate of adsense………..

  80. Tanner Waid says:

    Have you made any good revenue off it yet?

  81. Kirk Taylor says:

    I plugged infolinks in briefly, but I’ve got other linking software in my site and it didn’t seem to perform very well.

    I’m using Joomla so I’m sure the different CMS causes some issues, but more likely just the linking software.

    I’m planning on using on another site in the near future and will see how it performs.

  82. Dimitris says:

    I really have to re-think my in-content ad scheme and give it a try….

    Just keep in mind that just adding more ads does not always work… make sure they do not interfere with you other sales funnels

  83. Awesome John! I think I will go ahead and signup. There is no traffic minimum correct? Kotera has a min I believe

  84. Kai Arora says:

    Infolinks is quick in approval, after reading your review I applied for Infolinks and day before yesterday I got approval.

    I live Infolinks better than Kontera because Infolinks allow me to change the look from double underline to dotted, this will increase clicks for sure.


  85. rabbistarak says:

    I have recently joined infolinks and so far I didn’t have any complain
