    What is hubpages allowed infolinks on our hubs?

    Adsense ads are already displayed on our hubs. However, I know many persons come here to earn. Even those who are here for their writing passion would really love to increase their earning potential. How do you find the idea of hubpages partner with infolinks to allow our infolinks ads to be shown as well? Would that not be complementary to adsense and hubpages ad program, especially infolinks being intext advertising and therefore in no way rival to adsense and hubpages ad program?

    Infolink tends to divert traffic as people used to clink on text link with content the leave the website, which effect page view duration and faith of search engine.

    On the other hand, Hubpages already feauted eBay, Amazon and Adsense and the most profitable HubPages Ad Progrma that give you revenue even for page views. I think it is enough and infolinks are not so reliable as I used on my personal website.

      Hello mcxniftycalls,
      Thank you very much for the well explained answer. So I can see you join others here to have not a very good opinion of infolinks. Giving us a second thought as to whether leave their ads on our websites or remove them.

    use them on your blog or website.   I have read multiple articles etc with these infolinks in them.  I hate them.  I have yet to click on one that was content related.

      Thank you very much for your views LindaSmith1.
      So, contrary to others, you have given an answer from the point of view of a reader and that is really very pertinent. We write for our readers their comfort is what makes them return. Again thanks.

    Just an opinion, open for discussion...while your idea of adding infolinks is admirable, might that give the text of one's hubs an appearance of having too much clutter?

      I agree, the ads we have now are enough.  Too much of a "spammy" look turns readers away.

      hello hawaiiannodysseus and Christin S,
      You definitely have good points. That make me wonder I have made the right choice in putting them on my websites and blogs. I'll have to ponder over this issue again. Thank you very much.

    Google ranks you lower now for using systems such as Infolinks.

      Hello wjack2010, thank you very much for sharing. It's the first time I am learning about google penalising sites using infolinks. This means less readers, the ones we write for. I sincerely believe what you said will be of use to publishers.
