Established in 2006, Affinity serve the needs of web publishers around the world. It was the time when publishers were running after Google Adsense. Today Affinity is a renowned contextual advertising network similar to Adsense. Publishers are allowed to make money with affinity program. The advertising campaigns run by affinity are CPM (Cost per 1000 impressions), PPC ( Pay per click), CPL (cost per lead) and CPA (Cost per action). Affinity encourages publishers to join publisher program when their site content is clean and legitimate. Unlike other ad networks Affinity doesn’t demand minimum traffic ( Page impressions).
The different ad formats offered by Affinity are In-text, Tag cloud, In-footer, In-page and In-image. However, some formats are available in selected countries only. Most of you might have used Infolinks or Kontera In-Text ads on your site. I recommend Affinity In-text ads too. In-footer monetization is also a great way to boost your earnings. The In-footer ads on your site are either graphic or text banner. The revenue model could be CPM, CPC, CPA and CPL depending on the campaigns. You need to add code to each sub-domain if you want to show ads on them. Publishers can track their earnings on their account dashboard. Affinity simply deduct the earnings generated with click fraud activity.
Affinity pays you via Paypal or Wire transfer on Net 45 basis. The threshold payment for Paypal is $50 and $1000 for Wire transfer. You need to submit W-8 or W-9 tax form to receive earnings.
