I have started this blog in 2012, and the first advertising network I used was Infolinks before applying for Google adsense. After that, I have started displaying Google adsense ads along with this ad network as a supplement of my Google adsense revenue.
Infolinks runs a keyword-based real time bidding auction, all in order to deliver a perfectly timed, perfectly relevant ad by extracting user intent in real-time. They have also mobile apps for both Android Phone and iPhone for real time reporting.
Ad Unit Used by Infolinks
Infolinks publishers can use five types of ad units on their websites or blogs with named InFold, InTag, InText, InScreen and InFrame. The details about each ad unit are described below.
Different payment methods offered by Infolinks to their publishers are PayPal, Bank Wire, eCheck, ACH (only for U.S. bank accounts) or Payoneer. They will pay after 45 day from the end of the month when publisher have reached the minimum payment threshold for each method. For PayPal, eCheck, ACH and Payoneer they have a minimum payout threshold of $50 while the Bank Wire Transfer option has a minimum threshold requirement of $100.
I am using this advertising network for monetizing my blog also since 2012 and got payments many times according to their payment terms. Here is the screenshot for proof of their payment.

Turn on or off revenue booster for InTag ads and can also adjust where to display ads on top, bottom or on both. You can also select triggers for displaying InScreen ads.
