Text Link Ads or TLA is the text links that you can find on many blogs. It is a paid link which advertisers use to get higher search engine rankings and more visitors to their blog. Of course, this links doesn’t have the “nofollow???.
Text Link Ads are different from the normal advertising programs like Google AdSense and the like. TLA is just a simple text link that you can put anywhere in your website. Publishers will be able to choose whether they want it sitewide or just in a single page. Of course, sitewide links will make you more money :-)! Keep in mind that publishers are also given a choice if they want to display a lot of ads or not, the lesser the ads, the higher the price.
I recommend you to create your own account. It’s another way of monetizing your blog, a good source of income.
Remember that websites that has high PageRank and Alexa rankings will get higher linking price. So having high PageRank and Alexa rankings is always handy.
If you want to make MORE money with Text Links Ads, you could try the following tips
TLA above the fold – Put the TLA code above the fold to give Text Link Ads ads more exposure to your visitors. Advertisers love more exposure to their ads so more likely the price of your ads will get higher prices because of the demand.
Limit the number of ads – As a publisher myself. I can limit the number of ads to display on my website. Like what I said before, the lesser the number of ads the higher the prices will get. So it’s up to you whether you like many ads but lower prices or lesser ads with higher prices. Calculate it
