Affiliate In-Text Advertising Launches

by Pace Lattin2011-10-29

Skimlinks has announced that it is launching Skimwords 2.0, which will provide affiliate links within in-text ads. This opportunity will convert certain keywords into affiliate links from their acquisition of AtmaLinks. It will match over 20 million product in real time to create these advertisements.

Currently the product will only support product comparison services, by analyzing page content and turning them into links when moused-over.  There is no word yet whether it will in the future provide other affiliate marketing opportunities including buying keywords from the site, although the company said that they were open to new possibilities as the service grew.

    Interesting. Could be much more lucrative than other in-text ad services that pay like .005 per click or whatever it is these days…

    I always get envy to those people who are earning well on affiliate marketing. I ask myself how did they do it? Is it easy? Well I be able to make it myself. Those question remains inside my brain. Me as a family man, the desires to earn well is always inside my head because I want my family to experience the good living without having to worry of what to eat , what to buy and what to wear. Sounds like a priest but its true. I wish I could give my family a better life.

    There’s no doubt that if this changes are successful, the company itself would allow keyword buying. They said it themselves that they are open to new possibilities. I guess it’s their marketing strategy to make sure that it’s successful before going further to the next step.

    I’ve personally never used the in-text ads, but I see them all over the place. Adding the ability to have affiliate links seems like a good idea. It would definitely make them more appealing to anyone trying to sell stuff online.

    Interesting service. Second one of these services I’ve heard about now. The first is the link in my CommentLuv below – thought it was pretty innovative and I guess others did too.

    Is defo easier than signing up to tens of affiliate programs and manually linking.
