I’ve been reading few posts on inLinks from all the top bloggers around and the only thing I can say is that they are just making a fuss about it and nothing else. MediaWhiz, the company behind Text Link ads has started inLinks and their idea is to keep the text links alive and make money out of it and it perfectly makes sense to me.
inLinks is doing nothing new at the moment as this particular service is available through Text-Link-Ads anyway. Now, one may ask the question that if they are already selling these links through TLA, then why are they coming up with a new brand? The answer to this question is that they will try to to come up on the Google with that particular brand name as TLA’s Domain is banned on Google at the moment.
Amit has suggested that these links will surely be tough to detect, however Google also keeps Cached copies of all the websites they crawl, so they may ban your blog if they compare the old copies with the new copies.
Most of the A – list bloggers suggest that one should not sell the links on their blogs as this may result in ban from Google. Honestly I know many bloggers who sell links from their blogs and nothing has happened to their ranking in Google, rather they are doing too well even with those ads running at the moment.
What’s my suggestion on the use of inLinks ?
I’ll say that its your call. Your blog is your real estate and you are the best judge of what needs to be done with it. I can suggest that you may go for the service, however if you depend on Google then don’t blame me, if they ban your blog. If you generate good enough traffic from Social media then I think you can easily take the risk of selling the links.
