Sharp drop in InfoLinks revenues


Well-known member
Any else using InfoLinks notice a sharp drop in revenue since Oct. 1? In my case a 97.5% drop! This is across several sites (3 XF forums, 1 WP blog) that share no code and haven't been changed in any way.

InfoLinks income has dropped quarter by quarter throughout the year but this decrease is the end of the road for them in my book.

AdSense revenues remain normal.

InfoLinks never lived up to expectations -- they bill it as comparable to AdSense but revenue over the last year has only been 9% of AdSense (and it's only that high because I don't run AdSense on one of the sites).

Adios, InfoLinks. I hardly knew ya.

Revenue from all of these in-text link advertisers varies widely. IMO, not only do the ads themselves stink, but the revenue you get from these companies stinks, too. It's always a toss-up between how much you gain in money by letting the ads run and how much you lose in customer satisfaction. If you can find another way, lose the link advertisers. They're frustrating for all involved (except them, presumably).
