V7N announced last week that they have launched a new link buying service which could be seen as a hybrid of Text Link Ads and the Pay Per Post blogging systems, but different in terms of style, location of links and pricing structure.
V7N Contextual Links works by bloggers placing a line of contextual ad copy at the end of specific blog posts.
The copy does not review or endorse the product, but is specifically an advertisement made up of a sentence, with some of the terms in that content linked to the page of the advertiser, using the desired anchor text of that advertiser.
It will be interesting to see how this new contextual advertising solution for the SEO market and new money making system for bloggers pans out.
Ideally, the advertiser would be able to target specific blog posts which are already relevant to their service, product or topic, and purchase placement within those posts.
