My Experience With Infolinks vs Adsense

Share This
After using infolinks for over 2 weeks I can fairly write a review on the infolinks Ad Networks and also compare it with Adsense.
I will cover each one at a time. First infolinks. Below are the pros and cons

1. Infolinks.
  1. Takes very less time to integrate.
  2. Very easy Payment details configuration (even for Indian Bloggers).
  3. Good ability to configure Ads displayed.
  4. They claim you are paid 70% of the revenue.
  1. No matter what they claim its pays you fraction of what Adsense offers,
  2. Even after 10+ clicks you may only earn $0.01
  3. It may affect your Adsense CTR as readers are diverted to more attractive looking infolinks.
  4. Can be annoying to many users as the Ads populate if the mouse is even hovered over content.
  5. May display highly irrelevant Ads ending up frustrating your readers and you may loose loyal readers.
  6. Minimum threshold is $50 and after that takes 45 days for money transfer.
  7. Earnings reports are updated only once a day.

2. Adsense
  1. Best in business
  2. Pays the highest in Market.
  3. Famous worldwide and the most famous Ads earning and money making methods available online.
  4. Displays most relevant Ads for your content which results in more CTR.
  5. Earnings reports are updated every second.
  1. Minimum threshold is $100 and after that takes 30 days for money transfer.
  2. No direct Money transfer in India only by checks.
To conclude the comparison there is hardly any comparison between world leader Adsense and a immature Infolinks. I would only recommend anyone to use Infolinks only when their Adsense account is no longer active and it can only be a cheap alternative to Adsense. Please do not mix Infolinks when you already have Adsense Ads running. In case you still want to use Infolinks then restrict the number of underlined Ads to less than 5 per page. Luckily its configurable but my overall experience is very negative and I have dropped Infolinks from my blog as of now. (Reactivated it)

After removing infolinks I found that it has little to do with performance of Adsense i.e. CTR. It can run with Adsense, only thing is it pays very less.
