How do I Earn Money with Infolinks?

You can earn with Infolinks by visitor views, clicks and engagement with the Infolink ads. I could not find any detailed information provided by Infolinks on how the earnings are calculated. This could be because each advertiser has different rates for clicks, impressions and conversions.

However, Infolinks has stated that all publishers will receive 65% of the revenue share. Also, publishers will only receive a payout when their earnings exceed the minimum payout threshold. The minimum amount is $50 for Paypal, eCheck, ACH (only for US bank accounts) and Payoneer. $100 for Bank wire transfer.

For full details, you can refer to the article by Infolinks on payments.

How to Integrate Infolinks ads on your Website?

Once your application with Infolinks is approved, you will receive an email with your login details where you are able to locate your integration script code to be placed in your website for the Infolinks ads to start showing.

Copy and paste the unique Infolinks script into your website’s HTML, before the </body> HTML tag. Infolinks has provided simple to follow manual steps on how to integrate their script into your website for the various blogging platforms such as WordPress, Blogger, Weebly and Wix.

Some of the platforms have plugins that you can use instead of doing the manual insertion. For example, I used the “Simple ads.txts” plugin by WordPress to integrate the script for my blog. Detailed instructions can be found here.

My thoughts on Infolinks ~10 months after being on board

Infolinks program is a good to have Ad program to complement whatever blog monetization efforts you may have. As you can see from my blog stats, I have a stable viewership of a few thousands every month (not a lot I know, but getting there :]) but the earnings that I have from viewership is more of a pittance. The majority of my earnings are actually from referrals.

I am not sure of Infolinks business model, but it may be because there are trying to reward their users for new sign up to capture more market share, instead of rewarding their users with more ad revenue.

Do give this a go and see if this blog monetization program is right for you.
