Make money with Text-Link-Ads

Text-Link-Ads is a company which allows you to buy static text links on thousands of categorized websites - or put links on your own blog/website and make money. The most important thing here is the page rank of your site. The higher it is, the more money you can make (the amount of visitors doesn't really matter besides making it more attractive to advertisers). You can check your page rank here.

Besides selling text links on your site, you can also make money by referring new members through the affiliate program, putting text links to the bottom of every post you make, or even showing text ads in your RSS feed. These last two options seem to be limited to blogs using WordPress platform though.

I tried submitting two PageRank 3 sites when I signed up. First one was this blog, and it was automatically rejected. Second one was my Lithuanian website about Agloco and it was accepted. Since they both have PR3, I guess the reason was that my website has a second level domain. I might try to resubmit this blog if it gets a higher PR.

Even if your site gets very little visitors, the aim of Text-Link-Ads advertisers is to get higher search engine ranking, not a high click-through, so they will buy links from you anyway. TLA makes payouts by check ($25 minimum) or PayPal each month. If you have a blog or a website with a high PageRank, consider joining Text-Link-Ads.
