It's only been a few days since John Scott and Jeff Behrendt opened the new V7N contextual links to publishers and already the frenzy has begun with bloggers unable to sign up fast enough for the program.
It On the surface there's a lot to like about the new V7N system for both advertisers and publishers. Yet I still have reservations about the system in general for both those buying and selling links.
Why the Program is Good: The system is pretty simple and could described as a cross between Text Link Ads and Pay Per Post. An advertiser pays $20 for a link and a blogger gets paid half of that to place the link on their blog. Advertisers get the benefit of the link being a contextual link and bloggers get paid for simply adding a link to a post.
Some of the advantages of the system to advertisers according to v7n:
- Contextual Links @ V7N provides contextual links
- Contextual Links @ V7N are undetectable to search engines
- Contextual Links @ V7N are purchased, not rented - the links are permanent
All good things and at $20 a pop the kind of links being offered are certainly a good seo spend. These are the kind of links we all want. They display many of the signs of a quality link. Most site owners are aware of the difficulty of find links and now for a reasonable cost you can have as many as you want.
