How In-Text Advertising WorksIn-text advertising is a form of contextual advertising that targets the interests of the individual visiting a website. By scanning a website for keywords it can display ads related to the content of the website. For example, a user viewing a page about interior design will see ads for paint or flooring services.
While many contextual advertisements are scattered on the page or appear as pop-ups, in-text ads show up as hyperlinks within the text of the website. This integrated approach is non-intrusive for the user, and enhances readability of the website. Advertisers are able to use previously unused space and have the added option to incorporate logos and other graphical elements to improve the user's experience with the ad and the site itself.
mett.in What truly sets in-text advertising apart from traditional contextual advertising is its high degree of relevancy. Contextual advertising simply scans the entire website, determines what the site is about, and displays ads that relate to the subject on a very general basis. In-text ads, however, are keyword oriented, which allows an advertiser to target a highly specific interest rather than a broad range.
ContentLink In-Text AdvertisingContentLink is an in-text pay-per-click advertisement service that links to relevant keywords from Kontera's thousands of online publishers. What sets ContentLink apart from other in-text advertising is its ability to analyze websites in real time and continuously adjust the relevancy of its results.
