Last year I signed up to a text link ads company as I thought it could make a bit of money out of the blog to cover expenses and had completely forgotten about it. Basically if your using WordPress you click on the link below :-
Sign up to an account and then go through the motions of linking your website/blog to Text link ads.. with wordpress it takes about 2 minutes literally just downloading a plug-in then uploading it into your wordpress back menu and turning on the plug-in.. that’s it.. You may not make any money on it and then again if it works well you could make a lot.. I made my first $2.00 today and I hope the advertiser will keep the same ad spot every month and hopefully gain more. Seems a better option than adsense at the moment which I cant really get an idea of what its doing as the return is fluctuating. Although wont complain as by the end of the year it will hopefully at least have paid for the webhosting for 2010.
Anyway if you have a blog give it a go it doesn’t cost anything and literally its very little time involved. At worst you wont get any ads.. but if it does work you could have found a small gold mine..
