Infolinks: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Published July 22, 2011 - 0 Comments

I’ve been keeping an eye on the Infolink in-text advertising stats since I implemented it on my blogs earlier this month.  I’m pleased to say that people must be finding some value, because there have been a few clicks.  Even better, the clicks are spread across the different blogs, so I know that it’s not someone simply clicking on things here.  I have run into a problem trying to get it to work on www.LadyAshburnhamPickles.com for some reason.  I suspect that the theme might be interfering with it, which is a shame because I think that site would be perfect for in-text advertising.  I would try using a different theme, but I actually have that site looking pretty much like how I want it to look, so I’d prefer not to screw with it at this point.

I have also scaled back the number of in-text links once I finally discovered that was an option, so the blog no longer looks like a chaotic mess of links.  It should be a little easier to read, which really… is the point.  The advertising is nice, but I suspect that it will be sometime next year before I’m able to get that first payment into my PayPal account.  But that’s ok… slow and steady wins the race…
