Linkworth, who I wrote about a couple of weeks back, have recently updated their control center in a bid to make things easier for people to work out what on earth is going on there. This comes as a welcome relief, but the site is still plagued with confusing names that will likely baffle newcomers.
So what’s in it for me?
Once you’ve got your sites in there, you have a number of ways to make money with your blogs.
This is like Text Link Ads. You set a price for sitewide links and links on specific pages. Advertisers then contact you. There is also the option of selling rotating links.
As before, this is like Pay Per Post, except you wait for offers to come in. You set the price for each of your blogs and then advertisers find you. I have been offered posts through Linkpost already, but none of them are worth my time to accept because they are way off topic.
This is still a cool thing. You sell links based on keywords in your blog posts. It’s not exactly revolutionary, but you get to set the price for each keyword.
I didn’t notice this one before they remade the site. Linksura offers “single-url rotating ads”. What that means is that you place a single text link ad somewhere on your blog, and the anchor text changes with every page view, thought the url remains the same.
Another new one. Multi-url rotating ads this time. Both the anchor text and urls rotate. Seems like a bit of a gimmick.
This time you’re getting billboard ads.An advertiser writes a page of content with links that you then publish on your website. This is like Linkpost for people who don’t run blog software. For a blogger it’s not that useful.
This is a way to sell links on multiple blog in package deals. It’s not a bad idea in theory, but I’m unsure why you’d sell multiple links to the same person unless your blogs are about identical topics. It would also mean you make less money.
I’m not particularly impressed with the new Linkworth design because there is still no emphasis on making it clear exactly what is being offered by the company. That aside, there are some decent money making opportunities for bloggers hidden away in there. You earn up to 70% of the revenue you generate, which over time could mount up to a considerable sum.
