There are many small bloggers who want to earn money through monetizing his/her blog. Since, no other monetizing platform is better than Google Adsense, but Google Adsense has pretty difficult process and requirements to get the approval. There are many other Google Adsense alternatives that bloggers can use to monetize his/her blog, but Infolinks is one of simplest and best alternative for Google Adsense, at least in my opinion. Here, we would explain the step by step process “how to apply Infolinks request and getting approved.
Infolinks is my one of the most loved blog monetize platform due to its simplicity of getting approval. Infolinks is also pretty reliable in term of getting paid. However, Infolinks does not pay as much as you may be paid by Google Adsense. Still, Infolinks is the best monetize platform for small bloggers who did not get approval from Google Adsense.
In order to apply Infolinks and getting approval, you need to follow the following steps.
Sign Up For Infolinks

Once you are signed up for Infolinks, the Infolinks support team will review your website and other information. Once they found your blog eligible as per their policies, which is most likely in most of the time, you will get a welcome mail from them.
Integrating Infolinks with WordPress
Once your request is approved, which may take 2-3 days, sign in to your Infolinks. Since, there are various platforms on which you can host your blog but I personally found WordPress as most helpful and easier to use than others. We assume that your blog is hosted on WordPress. In order to integrate Infolinks with your blog, their is dedicated WordPress plugin for Infolinks is available that makes it easier to integrate Infolinks with WordPress blog.
In the Infolinks account console, click on the Integrate tab and then select your blog platform such as WordPress as soon in the following figure. Download the Infolinks setup file as it will be used later during installation of Infolinks Plugin.

That’s all you need to do to apply Infolinks and integrate it with WordPress blog.
Customizing Infolinks Ads Display
Once your Infolinks request is approved and you are done with integration, next you need to customize and adjust the Ads display settings. Infolinks supports various types and advertising methods such as In-Text, In-Frame, In-Banner etc. as soon in the following figure.
Go through each of the available options and select the desired options as per your wish. We would recommend at least In-text, In-screen, and In-article for the best monetizing results. However, do not use over advertising for your blog as i may slow down the Website speed and may affect the user experience. Typically, new bloggers (as i did this mistake already) always want to make as much as possible money through advertising platform as soon as possible, which sometimes degrade the performance of blog and can lead to decrease the user attentions and traffic.
Earning money through adverting ads on your blog require really great patience for which most of the new bloggers lacks. As per my personal experience i just earned $1.6 in my first month with Infolinks. But we remained focused on increasing blog traffic and adding more quality content. After 2-3 months, my earning crossed more than $50 per month with Infolinks. So please keep patience and focus on increasing organic traffic for your blog. It is good earning assuming that I am also a new blogger very much like you.
Getting Paid by Infolinks
Infolinks pay you your money once it reaches to $50. They pay you after 45 days from the month in which your three-sold reached. Infolinks supports the following payment methods as soon in the following figure.
Select each one of the payment method and read the guideline for them as each method has its own features and limitations. If you have PayPal or Payoneer account, there will not be any issue to getting you paid. You can choose the appropriate payment method as per your comfort, however, we would recommend to use PayPal or Payoneer personally.
Recommended for you: Getting started with Payoneer account if you don’t have Payoneer account yet.
