I have Adsense on my website - I use both text and banner ads. Is it ok to add additional text program such as Vibrant Media? Anybody had problems with Adsense because of a second text ad program? How about SEO. Can any other in-text ads impact SEO?

It's ok, but usually in text ads are not earning much these days. They used to be, but something has gone wrong with those ads. They tried to make them bigger and they now look like 300-250 size ads, which the readers don't like.

It's fine to run both. I have been using Adsense and Vibrant for well over a year, no problems.

No problem with the size of Vibrant in text ads on my site as far as I can see. But the looming problem for in-text ads, it's already here actually, is that they basically don't work as intended without a mouse. Mobiles therefore are out as far in-text ads are concerned unless they come up with a solution.

I've used either Vibrant or Kontera for at least 3 years now. Any site where I implemented them had no impact on AdSense earnings. That surprised me.


Vibrant has been down big time for me this year. Has me thinking I should switch to Kontera and see how they perform. Don't be afraid to try both (within the terms of service) and see who is better.

Hi,

This is Jonathan from Kontera. Because we're displayed in a completely different area of the webpage, you can use Kontera alongside Adsense, and as Swanny007 mentioned, it won't hurt your AdSense earnings.

As for if in-text advertising will hurt you with SEO, this study tackles that question (the short answer is, no): [murraynewlands.com...]

We've used Kontera and Adsense on the same page for years with no problems. But the last couple of months, Kontera revenue, which used to be about 10% of Adsense revenue, has completely tanked. No idea why. As a result, we've removed it from our site.

Yeah no issues running in-text advertisers with adsense and/or other affiliates. Surprisingly, in-text ads did not impact other earnings (well, without taking into account the additional load time which could be substantial I suppose when talking seo). Anyway, I prefer Infolinks.com Best publisher payout.

Main concern for in-text ads is that there is not much advertiser inventory. One month could be huge, the other just 'eh'.

There's no issue with in-text ads and SEO.

Hi Jonathan,
Why did Kontera decide to discontinue contracts with many premium publishers on a fixed CPM price basis?
