    Direct linking is still possible with lesser known networks that provide lots of domains. Soon as the program becomes popular, search engines kill off all said links.

    When you have a landing page, you don't waste all that work : if the links change or the network is penalized, you change your page and don't lose all your promotion work.

    Direct linking works for certain niches/offers.

    You will almost always convert better with a landing page but direct linking can make money.

    yes direct linking is still profitable to this day.
    by having a landing page you have the opportunity to collect the leads email and sell them offers to them in the future.

    run some tests and see how much your conversion rate changes by direct linking vs having your own lander as the results may vary per niche.

    I have limited experience with direct linking but I found having a "pre-sell" or landing page seemed to warm up the leads a little more, thus boosting conversion rates a bit. Just my 2 cents...

    Same here. I use a LP for products and offers that I promote. Direct linking rarely works for me unless I'm promoting mobile offers. But even then, I usually create a LP for that after I've done my optimization.

    Landers can make a world of difference when used correctly to pre-sell leads or warm them up, or to squeeze leads into an auto-responder series. The effectiveness of direct linking may be tied to the urgency related to the solution you are selling. If leads are already frothing at the bit, and in a buying mood then direct linking is actually a better option than using a landing page. It's a delicate balance of knowing your customers, and split testing.
