I’m a Text Link Ads convert

I’ve been using Text Link Ads on my site since late June of this year. Already, my earnings from the text link ads that I’ve sold have nearly tripled the earnings I receive from Adsense. Tripled.

Now they’ve added a RSS ad plugin and format for wordpress that has the potential to increase my earnings even more. If you’re reading this in a feed reader, you can see an example at the bottom of the post.

I highly recommend that you include TLA in your monetization plan. The service is amazing, the customer support is even better. I haven’t had one complaint that wasn’t taken care of with their live chat function.

  1. […] – Xbox Live Pipeline is a snazzy web interface for the Xbox Live Marketplace, but man, kill the sounds already. Worse than a game of hyper Pong. – Google Spreadsheets and the artist formely known as Writely have now been combined into Google Docs & Spreadsheets [thanks read/write web] – PC World thinks that the #1 selling gift this holiday season will be the Nintendo Wii. This prediction sounds pretty solid because there aren’t going to be enough PS3 to go around and unless Microsoft slashes the Xbox 360 price and adds HD-DVD the Wii could be the cabbage patch doll of 2006. – John Chow shares his list of the 10 best WordPress plugins. Browsing through it, we’ve tried and use only two of the plugins, but some of the others look very interesting, including the dynamic digg this plugin. I think the optimal title plugin would be handy for those who use Google Analytics because it pushes the title of the blog to the back of the post title and would make it easier to track in the stats. I’m going to try that one and the related posts plugins out and maybe the digg one too. Thanks John. – Text-Link-Ads have released a blog juice badge. Hmm scores 6.7 out of 10 (I think). We’ve started testing them out here at Hmm so interested advertisers can buy a text link in the RSS feed (also pictured to the right). Seems pretty affordable for advertisres at $80/month. We didn’t set that rate, text-link-ads did and they take 50% of the money for the backend (too much in my opinion, especially considering I could write my own rotator to do this, but then they also provide an advertiser matchmaking service of sorts which I don’t have). I like that you can rotate in your own ads, which we are already doing. Thatedeguy swears by these ads. Let me know what you think of them in the comments. I think if they are rotated enough they’ll be alright and I don’t find them intrusive as a single text ad link. I’m curious what you think. At this point it’s a limited time experiment and it’s only in the RSS feeds. – Verballs are furry creatures that light up and move when Skype calls come in. Think Gremlins and Skype.
