    Thoughts on in-line ads
    Hi all,

    I would love to hear your thoughts on in-line advertising (is that the correct term?)

    I mean those ads that make certain words in blog posts, articles etc clickable.

    Are you a fan of these types of ads?

    What makes a good in-line program in your opinion?

    Many thanks.

    Dean

    If by "in-line ads" you mean those ads inserted by merchants as links to words on your website -- the kind that usually have an annoying pop-up ad whenever someone hovers over the targeted word -- I hate 'em.

    If you mean linking to a text word or phrase yourself within a blog post or other content on your site, they are really the best and most effective ads I use.

    Just my 2 cents, but I do my best to run far and fast away from blogs or websites that have those incredibly annoying hover/pop-up text ads.

    Dean look up contextual advertising in particular AdSense. There are affiliate models like Skimlinks, Viglinks and AvantLink's ALE. Let us know if that is what you mean?

    I've also seem some great results from Prosperent.com. They got some great tools to ensure that the product match for each link is the top performer/seller. Their affiliate base seems pretty happy.

    What I am thinking is the type that "writerguy" referred to... BUT, without the annoying pop-up.

    It is something I am considering offering to my affiliates (plus the usual options), any tips on do's and dont's for this type of ad/program?
