Viglink: A Google AdSense Alternative

Running advertisements on your website is one of the best ways to gain revenue on the Internet. Currently, Google and its subsidiary Double Click are the most sought after ad networks online. There are a lot of reasons why some publishers fail to meet Google’s AdSense program policies when applying for AdSense accounts. If that is the case, there are other other than having Google AdSense eligibility. One of them is .


Viglink offers monetization for publishers, bloggers, and forums using content driven advertising by hyperlinking specific product keywords on your page. Working with 5 billion pages per month with over 35,000 retail merchants such as eBay, Amazon, Target, Walmart, and any major retailer in the world; Viglink takes care of finding the highest possible earnings for your link.

Getting Started and How it Works

You only need to do 3 steps to start earning on Viglink.

1. Create an account with your email address;

2. Copy the HTML code onto your website, blog, or forum;

3. Create your content and build your links. It’s that simple!

There is no pre-registration, pre-approval or traffic requirement unlike Google AdSense. Earnings commission is at 75% for purchases or clicks made through your links. You can control how you want your links appear on your page. Their technology supports multiple platforms (i.e. websites, blogs, forums, social networks, and mobile). Payouts are processed via PayPal and are made 60 days after earnings are recorded. Viglink covers 3rd party fees and does not have monthly minimum for payouts. They take care of FTC disclosure for you as well. For more questions, visit Viglink’s FAQ page.

Other things you need to consider are:

1. Viglink takes 25% commission on sales made, which some consider to be a big chunk out of their earnings;

2. For support concerns, you would have to dig into Viglink’s Knowledge Base and Forum; and

3. Reports may be a bit confusing for some.

I'm glad it helped &indianfighter . Have you been using Viglink before on your web or blogsite?

This seems like something definitely worth checking out. Not that I have any problems with my AdSense account, but certainly having one's eggs in more than one basket is exactly what is needed in case things DO go wrong. Thanks for the information about this.

AdSense also requires £60 earnings in the UK before payout. In three years, my blog earned less than a 10th of that... I need to look into Viglink in more depth I think.

This does sound interesting. I am not able to monetize my site using Adsense bec it is just a few days old. WIll check this out. Thanks for the heads up.

It works well with Google AdSense too. I definitely agree there should always be back up plans for everything, especially on the web as things change without notice most of the time.

Ad Networks want to be on the safe side before they commit to serving ads on any platform. What makes Viglink attractive is the fact that it relies on content rather than traffic. Another plus I saw is that it can optimize several platforms including forums (social platforms included) and mobile.

You're welcome goddess888 . As long as you have content on your site, Viglink will work for you. It also works on forums, social media platforms and even on mobile emoticon :smile:

Thank you for this :) Definitely worth checking out :) Just FYI: I clicked through to read your other post (nicely placed btw!!!) because of course I want to know more but I clicked BACK because I hadn't commented here or liked this one. And the other opened in this window. I'm not whining about it (maybe a little, lol) but if I weren't the TYPE A that I am, I might have just said, eh...and not come back around. Might you think about changing that link to open in a new window? Just a thought. Okay, NOW I'm going to read it. Again, thanks for sharing. Always excited for new opportunities to earn, so I can keep doing what I love :)

This sounds an interesting alternative, or perhaps addition to monetisation possibilities on a web site. I have adsense but had never before heard of viglink. Will have a closer look at this. Thanks very much for the information.

PenFlavor wrote on July 15, 2014, 8:20 AM

Hmm...that's strange, I double checked both links today dear, and both show to open on a new window. What could possibly be happening?? Good that you pointed them out so I could check them emoticon :smile: I may have to ask Will or Heather if they can replicate the problem with the links.

And with regards to Viglink, yeah it is definitely an opportunity. I just can't wrap around my head around it to even suggest it in Persona. It might ruin what we all want to pursue.

PenFlavor wrote on July 15, 2014, 8:31 AM

I think I know what caused it. I shortened the links that's why they open on the same window instead of breaking out on another tab. I've tested them and they are good to go. Thanks again sandralynn emoticon :smile:
