5 Best In-Text Advertising Networks

Most of the bloggers make money using adsense or through any private high CPC/CPM ad networks or via selling ad slots in the sites. There is also another way to make a decent amount from the site. These days you could have noticed links popping out a small ad window when the mouse is rolled over in some sites. This is called as contextual advertising or In-Text advertising and this was the method which I mentioned earlier. In-Text Ads will be displayed based on the keywords preferred by the Advertiser.

It is not a tough job to get register in the networks offering it and it is free as well. Sounds interesting? If you have a site with decent traffic then you can make $3-4/day as an average earning. These earnings may vary depending on the niche as well. If you do not have an adsense account then a private ad publishing network and In-Text Advertising can fetch you good money. Register in the best 5 In-text advertising sites and get started!!

Here is the list of 5 best contextual advertising networks that I know,



I think this is the best contextual advertising network I have ever used. Infolinks is the best in payment and also support as well. All that you need to do is to get register and put the code in the Footer or Header file of your site. Infolinks will start showing ads immediately. However an approval of account is needed before getting the code.

In my experience infolinks works well with Tech niche than other niches. Minimum threshold amount for payment is $50 and they pay through PayPal, bank wire transfer or ACH.



This is the second best In-text advertising network I know. Kontera works similar like Infolinks but you have an option of Plug-in here. If you use a wordpress site then Kontera plug-in can make your job pretty easy. You can set the color of the link via the plug-in admin panel and lots of other customization options are available as well.

In my experience Kontera work well with Health niche than other niches. Minimum threshold amount for payment is $50 and they pay through PayPal.



I would rank this as the third best contextual advertising network in my list. You could have seen a big In-Text advertising window in some sites, which are from Affinity. This is worth a try not only for publishers but also for Advertisers as well. Affinity is growing big these days.

In my experience Kontera work well with news sites where big ads can really attract readers. There is no minimum threshold limit and they pay through PayPal and cheque.



This is 4th in my list. Clicksor is a well known advertising network having all kind of Ad displays. The main point about Clicksor is that they share more than 60% advertising share with the publishers.

I have not tried Clicksor personally but heard it is worth a try. Minimum threshold amount for payment is $50 and they pay through PayPal and cheque.


Last but not the least is the builtinText. It is easy to get started with this network and integration of ads can be done in few simple steps. The best part is that their minimum payment amount.

Not sure about the advertising network as I have not tried it personally. Minimum threshold amount for payment is $25 and they pay through PayPal, Wire Transfer and cheque.

Hope this helps you all!!

    i think you got it all wrong!! mainly about Clicksor, they pay a measely 0.6% lmao instead of the so-said 60% share with the publishers !!!! believe me i’ve been using their ads on many websites for a long time and still not hitting the 50$ threshold!
    their ads are slow, count only US traffic, drive off my valued visitors and sometimes you get viruses and spyware on your site and infect your user, so they generally SUCK! this is experience talk and not what they say on their website or what their reps say on some forum!

    word of advice: STAY AWAY FROM CLICKSOR!

    ps: among the other in-text ads mentioned, i’ve noticed that Infolinks is the best (well at least for my niche- teck reviews)!

      Subhashini@ Yes you can but it will not increase your revenue because all your text will compete for 2 advertisers. A rational decision is to join only 1 at a time and reach to the minimum payout.
