It has been a while since I wrote this article on VigLink – A Retrospective, and since then I sort of concentrated on many other affiliate programs and CPC tools. But one good thing about VigLink is that once you have your API Key installed in your site, you really dont have to do anything else with it.
That being said, I got an email saying my account was credited with $67 yesterday!!!!!I was surprised and immediately went back and saw that the source was VigLink and it was a result of just 2 clicks made on on my recent posts. Below see the screenshot from my VigLink Account Dashboard. Of course all the other clicks for the month did not pay out anything except those 2 on July 17th.
So this got me thinking and immediately I thought I should share it with all of you wonderful bloggers out there. This is an easy way to make money, all you need to do is sign up for the program – VigLink SignUp (this is a referral link and gives a small portion of the commission VigLink makes from your link referrals).
I have been using other affiliates like Amazon and CJ.com but, nothing comes close to this when you think of ease-of-use and prompt payments. It doesnt have a minimum payout and my first month commission was credited to my account with just $5. I have also explained this in my previous post on the subject that all you need to do is install the API in your header.php file and forget about it. Just go about writing your articles and building content as you have been doing so far. VigLink is tied up with numerous affiliates and for every article you write, it searches for the keywords and adds the links by itself.
For those who are concerned – the links added as ‘NoFollow‘ links, so it doesn’t dampen your spirits to just sign up and start making money on the side. The viglink dashboard is also very friendly and gives complete information on how many affiliate clicks were made on a daily basis, which post of yours the clicks came from, if it resulted in any commission etc.
