It's called VigLink, it's backed (funded) by Google and it automatically creates affiliate accounts for you for every link leading outside your site, EVEN if the link is posted by someone else.
I'm making about $25 a month with it and my network is tiny and fairly unpopular. You other Creators ought to be able to make a lot more than me.
Anyway thought I'd share this again as it's totally worth it.
Hello Mr. Jones. I would have thought that with a name like "Sidian", your network would be quite popular. ;-)
I'm using this, and I may have installed it by your recommendation in another forum post. Brilliant idea.
Bah, what's in a name? hehe
My network does alright but could really use a member boost right now. How much luck have you had with VigLink yet? Makin money?
"What's in a name" he says. Heh.
I hear you though. My network is effectively dead in the water, only because I've decided to take it in a new direction, somewhat. I'm working with a few business partners on a project that will bring in new members and quite possibly chase old members away. Destroy and rebuild, so to speak. I installed Viglink in anticipation of the new traffic when I relaunch my network. I made my money woth my Amazon Associates shop, time for something new. The overhaul is an immense undertaking, but it will exceed the effort I've put into it.
Interesting but how do you install it on a ning site? Per VigLink video, I have to copy their code and paste it into "my code'? I'm curious how you installed it?
Same place you put the Google Analytics code. I forget what Ning calls the area though. :P
Seems Ning just released a similar application here.
Looks like I was heading the right direction!
I wonder what differences there are under the hood of these two products though.
Has anyone compared the two products? Do they take the same cut? Thanks for sharing this Sidian and Thunder!
Looks like Skimlinks has an additional ability to convert words like ipod or amazon into links too, on the fly. Since it is integrated with ning, I'm going to give it a go. They take 25% of the commission BTW.
