Is selling text links or banner ads more profitable?
If you own a forum or website, then you may earn revenue from selling advertisement on your website. You may sell text links or banner ads but which one is more profitable? From my personal experience, many people like text links because they are also a backlink. However, I earn most of my revenue from banner ads because it is easier to make money off banner ad networks. I had very little success with text ads networks. People seem to be looking for results more than backlinks when buying links so banner ads are probably more popular. Do you agree?
Banner ads also tends to be more expensive because it takes up more space so you can make more money from banner ads. Most websites use banner ads as their main source of revenue and sell text links on top of it for a slightly extra income.
