    That’s great news. I have been keen to give Text Links Ads a try, but as a Blogger user I wasn’t able to.

    Thanks for the heads-up Darren.

  2. Alex Becker says:

    That is good news. I probably would not qualify now but hopefully in the near future I can use them.

  3. Text Link Ads is one of the best programs out. They have great customer service and actually sell ads!

  4. Darren Rowse says:

    MM – yes, i’m hearing from a lot of bloggers that TLA has become the largest earner on their blogs – particularly smaller blogs that don’t yet have a lot of traffic but which have an established search engine ranking.

  5. Not only that but I am seeing decent results when I advertise on other sites. It really helps drive up Pagerank.

  6. David says:

    You should get accepted from Text Link Ads as soon as you hit Google PR4 as long as if you have a decent enough looking site.

  7. THANK YOU DARREN for this announcement !!!
    I always check your site when I return home and this is great news : )

    Not sure if I can qualify for TLA yet as someone mentioned you need a
    high search ranking but I will give it a try.

    Thanks so much for the information *

    Indeed, as Darren said, I’m not a big earner, smallish blog, personal blog on top of that, and TLA is the biggest income generator. Purrty nice.
    Also, the links don’t take as much space as adsens, for example.

  9. Arun says:

    I am not sure what you are talking about. I use blogger and also have been using TLA for almost 6 months. I think you meant blogspot websites?

  10. This is good to hear. I have signed up for TLA, but have yet to try them out… maybe I should on one of my bloggers.

  11. John Hood says:

    Pity it’s not available to those of us with ‘old’ Blogger accounts and no means to migrate as yet!

  12. Blog Bloke says:

    Yes Darren, as you probably know I broke the story yesterday. Your readers might also be interested in knowing that it’s also been reported on my blog that it is not yet available for FTP users. Have a happy new year and thanks for the link.

  13. Darren Rowse says:

    hadn’t seen your post BB – got the news via an email from Patrick from TLA a couple of days back saying that it was coming out over the holidays. Sorry mate but I’ve got a few thousand unread items in my news aggregator to catch up on from the holidays as I’ve been in ‘lite blogging’ mode this week.

  14. Liza says:

    Thanks for the tip. I was actaully thinking about signing up to be an Amazon Associate. This post is very helpful. Thanks.

    Great news!

  16. makubex says:

    Thats great, will use on a few of my new Blogger blogs

  17. Mad Dog says:

    Yup, they contacted me, have ads sold, but still don’t support Blogger FTP accounts, only those that use the Layout function. Kind of strange since I’d think most of the larger blog sites use FTP to maintain their own hosting.

  18. marco says:

    I applied for TLA about two months ago. Got approved, installed the ad code in my blogspot blog and was told to wait a few days for my site to get listed in the inventory. It’s been around two months now and my site still isn’t in the inventory. I’ve contacted TLA support and was told it would be listed in the market place soon, but it still isn’t listed. I tried contacting them again and haven’t been getting any response anymore. I read from somewhere that they have some sort of backlog of sites to list in the marketplace but I’m not sure if it’s just hearsay. Is there anyone else out there on the TLA publishers program who’s been waiting months to get listed in the TLA marketplace?

  19. We are on WordPress – but we haven’t used TLA yet.

    We are just trying to figure out who to go with. We have been so busy building our blog, we haven’t spent enough time looking into which ad companies to use. I must admit – the whole subject overwhelms me!

  20. Biju says:

    Great news!
    But I don’t think my blog will qualify for that. I think TLA needs certain amount of traffic to your site in order to qualify for their ads.
    But I always loved their ads. I wish I could do something like that in my blog.

  21. Evan says:

    I heard that Google doesn’t like text-link-ads and that it’ll end up bringing down your page rank.
    Is this true?

  22. Tarakan says:

    Yes Google do NOT like any buying or selling of text links. I have recently applied to TLA, got approved for my PR3 website (not blog btw), installed the code, and got ads sold. The ad sold was very low quality website with nothing much in the body page. How on earth TLA could accept such low quality sites. Also Google is always on the watch out for any website/blogs used to sell link ads and penalise them. Im not going to hurt my SERP for the benefit of a few text link ads on my website obviously. Tried contacting TLA again to make their ads a NoFollow link (meaning no Search Engine juice for the ad) which I guess will be a smile on Google Bot. Yet to receive a reply from TLA.
