Selling Links On Your Site

Text Link Ads helps you monetize your website, by selling ad space to perspective advertisers. As the name suggests, the ads you’re selling are simple text links. Advertisers like Text Link Ads because they get search engine love as well as traffic. Unlike other ad networks, the links served by Text Link Ads are static links without a nofollow tag. TLA is as much a SEO tool as advertising tool.

Publishers like Text Link Ads because the links are non-intrusive and doesn’t look like advertising. I sell TLA links on one of my sports blogs, and I’ve placed them right below my blog roll. Advertisers get the SEO benefits, and readers don’t view the links as advertisements, but rather sites that I endorse. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Advertisers buy links on a site for one flat monthly rate. The price is based on a site’s Alexa and Technorati ranking as well as Google PageRank and estimated number of RSS subscribers. The better the numbers, the higher the link price. Currently, we’re only getting a modest amount of money for our ads on the NFL site, but we expect the price to increase when the next Google Page Rank update happens.

Text Link Ads is a great program to join, as it adds yet another revenue stream to your website, and it’s not dependent upon variables out of your control (traffic, clicked ads, etc). TLA take 50% of the link price as their fee for getting a link sale. It’s a bit high, but they are finding you the advertisers, and all you have to do is approve them. All in all, it’s a pretty good deal!
