Monetize your website - best adsense alternative

Hello everyone. Today I want to recommend you to a very well known advertising network which is a great alternative to those who are already making money or for those who are adsense banned. Infolinks is a contextual advertising network working with thousands of publishers and more than 100,000 active websites around the world distributed in 128 countries.




Infolinks has been recommended in my list of the best Adsense alternatives for 3 years already, but they are actually bigger than that. You can use Infolinks at the same time with Adsense ads without having problems or being banned as it could happen with other networks. And you can mix it with many other networks from that list too to increase your revenue. As mentioned, Infolinks has contextual ads and they’ve been online for a few years already. They have close relationships with different publishers and of course, they work with several big advertisers including some of the biggest ones around the globe. Ebay, Pizza Hut and HP are just a few. That means they have a big inventory of ads waiting to be shown in your website with good CPCs and payouts. Here are a few others you might be able to promote in your website depending on the niche.

Infolinks Ads


As you can see, there are several Infolinks ads formats, both for desktop and mobile traffic to improve your earnings no matter what. Infolinks does a great work scanning your website so they can show the best ads based on your keywords, which is somewhat similar to what Adsense does, but I feel the algorithm here has been improved and so you’ll get better results with very high click rates (CTR) without being too intrusive with your ads or pop ups as other networks do. Let’s see the  Dashboard. Sign up as a publisher here, and when you get approved, you can add your website in 1 minute:


The user interface looks amazing and if you’ve been working with several ad networks before, you’ll definitely appreciate it. When you first login you’ll see your last 7 day reports. Here you can check your impressions, clicks and earnings. Also, you have an option to email yourself the reports in case you can’t access to their site when you’re out without a computer.

 I also noticed they have an app for Android an iOS users where you can check your earnings in real time. Not every network does that and it’s always something good to have. If you want to get started with Infolinks as soon as possible there’s a 1 minute integration menu where you can add their code to any platform with a javascript code, but they’ve gone the extra milestone by adding quick settings in case you use any popular CMS including WordPress, Blogger, Drupal or Joomla.


Installing Infolinks in your WordPress website is as simple as downloading a plugin and link it with your account. No need to add javascript or extra plugins in your html/php code, which is great in case you’re not a tech savvy person. Now that you know how easy is to start using Infolinks, let’s get a quick look at the customization options for every type of ads they provide. We’ll start with their Intext ads as those are the ones that changed the way Infolinks do advertising. Infolinks will create links from your articles by scanning the keywords you’re using, thus resulting into very interesting ads that are non intrusive and have a high engagement rate. In their InText manager you can select how many links you want per page (1-12), the style of the links and even the color to match it with your website’s design (like in adsense)

After you’ve done the proper customization you can either deploy those settings to 1 website or to all the websites you have at the same time. You just need to add your websites into the dashboard to make it work.

Then we have InTag ads, which are pretty much in the same category as the InText ads. InTag ads also appear as keywords, but instead of making links appear on your articles, there will be a tag cloud with related terms. This is very similar to the ads with Google Adsense and you can customize the number of lines, the color and the location of the tag cloud (top, bottom or both).

These two types of ads works best for me, but you can try the other.

Infolinks Earnings and Payments

Infolinks uses pretty much every payment method to withdraw your earnings without problems no matter where you’re located at. Your Infolinks earnings can be processed via eCheck, Wire transfers, Payoneer, Paypal and even Western Union. Here are my earning from small wordpress tech blog, as you can see i didn't received many clicks, but i earned couple of bucks. If you have big traffic you can earn a lot more.



Conclusions

 Honestly, Infolinks has been doing great lately and their platform has changed a lot since the first time I checked them back in 2012. I think they are a great alternative for people who want to use non intrusive ads, or even if you’ve got an Adsense account you can still add Infolinks and get some extra revenue from your traffic.

Their user interface is great and their ads are very easy to implement and customize. Their InText ads are great if you hate banners or pop ups, but try the InFold ads too as they’ve been working great for many publishers.

How to make your content go viral - my method

How to make your website go viral?

It's not free method but very effective (and very cheap). If you are sharing something interesting on your page it can go viral. But how to start the snowball rolling? This is main problem - initial traffic (boost) for your blog or post. And there comes Social Bookmarking! 

But manual submitting can really be a time-consuming process with you being required to create an account in each site before submitting your page to them by yourself. It's better to outsource this task. What if you could submit your website to over 300 biggest social bookmarking websites for less than $5? If your content is interesting your website will go viral easily. Submitting to Social Bookmarking Sites like Digg, Stumbleupon puts your blog/article out there in front of millions of people, increasing your visibility ten notches and getting you more branding. As more and more people read your bookmarked blog/post and vote for it, the more popular it becomes & the traffic to your site increases. Social bookmarking can also bring more additional backlinks to your page. Each of these popular Social Bookmarking sites see tremendous volumes of traffic on a daily basis, if your blog/website has good content on it, chances are that several of these users will link to your content, thus getting you relevant links which will ultimately lead to an increase in your rankings in the google. You can find many social bookmarking services on Seoclerks, for example:

Get traffic from Instagram on autopilot

I am going to share to you guys how I make a lot of money using one awesome tool. It is hard nowadays to find reliable tools we can use to increase our traffic online and also increase our earnings.

Let me tell you first how I started promoting my product on Instagram last year,  I pay people to post my photos on their accounts. At first I didn't care if I am paying for it (I spent $600 USD per month) because I already have money to spend for traffic but then I realized when one of my friend told me to try a tool to automate my Instagram account and reduce spending money on guest ads, that was the time I tried Instazood

This instagram bot can grow your account on autpilot. You can get 100s of followers a day! Features of Instazood:
  • like
  • follow
  • unfollow
  • comment
  • private messages
  • posting 
  • post schedule
Some dashboard options:
 

You can set the limits of following, unfollowing, commenting etc.



I know that the use of social media these days is not solely for socialization purposes or personal usage, but for variety of purposes. Many people (including me) are using Instagram for business, campaigns or raising awareness among many others. It can bring you massive traffic. Simply put your website's url in bio, post 10-20 images related to your site (niche), run the bot and gain followers. You will see a lot of clicks from Instagram after a couple of days. When you reach 10k followers you will start getting private messages from people/companies who want to pay you for posting their ads on your account. They can offer you even $100 per one post (depends on how many followers you have got)

Instazood is FREE to try for 3 days (with full features), after 3 free days you must pay $9,99/month but it's worth!
