Vibrant vs Infolinks vs Kontera ~ Which in-text ad is better?

Kontera, Infolinks and follow by Vibrant… These are the in-text ads that I tried and still publishing 2 of them. So which one of them is the best? Let’s find out…

Vibrant earning

I started to publish Vibrant in-text ads on since June 2010. The first month performance was outstanding due to many big advertisers. However, earning dropped in the follow months. Luckily, back up from bottom last month.

Infolinks earning

As for Infolinks, I still publish it on this blog. June earning == US$ 5.29, July earning == US$ 3.16, August earning == US$ 1.33 and September earning == US$ 1.08. Oh my, the earning is dropping each month. Will it drop below US$ 1.00 this month?

Kontera… I did not try it again (because Kontera had a bad earning record) even after several emails from its business development manager. Why? I planned to try out Vibrant for a quarter then test out Kontera. Decided not to when I found out that My Tech Quest blogger regretted to switch to Kontera from Infolinks.

I made a good decision to publish Vibrant in-text ads. It is the best in-text ad in the market for me. Time tells everything… If you are good, you will perform in long run. Let’s see Vibrant can continue to perform or not. 😉

  • Hi – I work for Vibrant Media. I’d be happy to talk to publishers interested in joining our in-text network.  We offer the leading technology as well as the most relevant, most premium, and highest paying ads.  You can reach me via email at I’ll reply within 1 business day. Thank you.

  • Hi Jayce,

    This is Jonathan from Kontera. I just read your previous post about Kontera, and first of all you can easily look up how much money you’ve accumulated in your Kontera account by contacting our helpful support team at – if you do have around $40, it’s would be a great time to give Kontera another shot, as we recently lowered our minimum payout threshold from $100 to $50. Especially if you’ve been seeing diminishing results with your current In-Text providers.

    Additionally, Brian, the Business Development Manager who e-mailed you recently is probably the best there is at optimizing sites for publishers, so you’ll never get a better impression of how well your site Kontera do on your site than with him. Please feel free to contact us so we can talk about your site in more depth.
