In a nutshell, Text Link Ads sells text links on your site on your behalf.
Let’s see how is this useful and how you can earn revenue.
It all starts from the basic idea that linking increase visibility.
Imagine that Seeking Revenue is popular site. You want me to link to your site so that visitors (including search engines) will visit you.
What can you do?
You can either ask me nicely to create a link (which I’m too busy to create) or Buy from Text Link Ads.
How does it work?
If I am a Text Link Ads (TLA for short) publisher, TLA gives me some codes which I place on my site. These codes get a list of advertisers that had brought link on my site creates the links.
How effective is it?
I had just signed up as a publisher so I have no idea how well it works. However Darren over at Problogger had been using it with some nice results.
Using text link ads (note the lower case, referring generally to all text link ads) has its controversy.
Should you buy text links or sell link ads using Text Link Ads? I am giving it a try.
