Blog advertising is a prickly slope. I have dabbled in this poison for almost as long as I have blogged. Most of my adventures have been less than satisfactory and I have made just enough money to help me host my blogs and services. I recently decided to give Text-Link-Ads a try.
I really like it so far. This mode of advertising works much better than contextual advertising for sites such as mine. Text-Link-Ads are easy to setup and their customer service is excellent. There have been some bugs and discrepancies while they upgraded their systems and changed things around but these have always been resolved to my satisfaction without my interference. Patrick Gavin knows what customer service and a customer based business model is all about.
I love to promote and help businesses that I like. Text-Link-Ads offers a good product, are very easy to deal with and can become a relatively good source of income. Have you used their services? What did you think of it?
