    Did you remember back days when making money online was easier. My time, the hottest market was "Text Link Ads" before Google slap. Some of you might know or had made money from it before. What do you miss the most?

    You can still make money from those approaches not necessarily Text link ads
    now you have


    1. Infolinks - self serve text inline contextual ads
    2. 50onRed - self serve text inline contextual ads
    3. InLinks - monthly fee inline contextual ads
    4. Admanage - Contextual, inline & display, pops, parking, decent volume
    5. Kontera - inline contextual text ads. Not self-serve
    6. AdMedia - self serve inline contextual text ads like kontera, also display ads
    7. Snap LinkAds- text/inline type ads
    8. Linkworth - Banners, inline, contextual, plenty of cheap inventory

    Try with some of those and start banking

    Was making around $x,xxx daily from adsense, after they improved their algo and detect my method. And no, my method was not a known one. My adsense not banned, but the sites gone. Still making money but not near the old days.

    DP co-op network was great to rank any site. What happened to Shawn the guy who ran it and made millions cookie stuffing through it

    This was epic. A lot of people tried cloning it and even some succeeded as well. But the guy who came up with the original idea banked really hard.

    Actually it always looks that way, until you remember people were saying the same thing then.

    Truth is - since IM/SEO/RM is growing larger, you can sell it better because nobody wants to be behind on important tools. Simply explaining to a restaurant that EVERY surrounding restaurant is whooping him in sales thanks to these tactics, he'll have to jump onboard.
