Recently I was invited to test the Adbeans Publisher Network and can honestly say I have been pretty happy with the platform so far, the platform definitely favors blogs with a higher PR ranking right now, PR3 or higher is most likely to get approved but I would encourage any blogger to apply if they are looking to gain some earnings by including some sponsored links in their written content.
Links were a fairly good match for content and not intrusive, payout rates were among the best out of all the blog publishing platforms I have used and can honestly say that this is one service I would recommend along with SocialSpark (which will likely eventually go away for IZEA’s new platform) and Tap Influence.
There are a ton of other platforms to try to if you are looking to make money with blogging and I encourage you to visit the Make Money Online page on DragonBlogger if you want a large list of programs to try. I haven’t added AdBeans yet, so I need to update the page however.
Adbeans has you list your website, add details and they provide keywords and links that you either include in new articles as either in-content links or signature links. There is a higher payment typically for in-content links that are very focused around the advertisers topic than for signature links but both will work if you have a hard time finding a way to write exactly about the sponsors content. Adbeans has been around since 2003 which is crazy since I had been blogging since 2008 and tested dozens of other publishing platforms and never heard about Adbeans until this past month.
Any questions about Adbeans let me know,
