Infolinks Banned My Account, Is It a Revenge ?


Last day i got a Mail from Infolinks That They Detected fraudulent activities in your Infolinks Publisher account and They Banned My Account.

Infolinks Scam
Infolinks Scam

The Mail Said

” Dear Anish,

We have detected fraudulent activities in your Infolinks Publisher account and your account has been permanently suspended. Accordingly, your account is hereby suspended until further notice and any pending credit is revoked.

We ask that you please remove the Infolinks code from your website at your earliest convenience.

We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.”

I little bit surprised, why they banned me ?. because i didn’t done any fraud activities. Because for the last 4-5 days me not using Infolinks Ad code anywhere. Then how can they find fraudulent activities ?.

Last Week I have read an article In My Friend Amit Bhawani‘s Blog ” Why Infolinks & Kontera should be Completely Avoided “. That Article Strikes me and i decided to test it. me removed the infolinks ad code from blogs. I got Positives Results.

1, My Blog Speed Increased
2, Traffic Increased Up to 10%
3, Bounce Rate Reduced
4, Increase Adsense Revenue
5, My Blogs are Clean Now 🙂

So Infolinks Ban not affect me and its a blessing 🙂 . My hearty thanks to Infolinks team, I am sure those who reading this article should test their blog perfomance without Infolinks.

I am sure its a revenge from Infolinks side, because Amit Bhawani Said that Both Kontera and Infolinks are Monitoring that Post, Infolinks Team found that me following Amit. so they decided to ban me.

My request to all is please Read Amit’s Post and Test Yourself.

    Well Infolinks pay horribly low and I guess all in-text Ads network do same, they took money from us and give small penny for us! Also Image Ads networks pays more then these sites!

    You did excellent job to delete it!

    I think your website is very much beautiful now. The absence of infolinks made your website very much beautiful and it looks like a website which get free from a devil!!! 🙂

    Fouzan, Yes you are correct. my humble request to all my friends is don’t use inline ads.

    Once I applied to many ads networks as infolinks, kontera, adbrite, etc, I gave all ads 3 days time in my blog. Their reports were not satisfactory, so I had rmoved them all. It’s only adsense that have good ads related to my site, which is mainly based in electronics.
    For example, adsense shows electronics components ads, while infolinks shows ‘’ in my site. They don’t have ads.

    I agree with you Anish, both infolinks and kontera should be completely avoided. I got over 10-15 clicks per day with very very low earnings 🙁

    I wasted 6 month by using infolinks service……

    @ Arup

    If you are Using Rewards Program you can earn, for a free registartion is giving 0.5 to 1 $. at the same time these inline networks giving 0.1$ for 100 Clicks.

    The only ad I see on my blog through infolinks is ‘’ be it be any keywork.

    Hahha, yes it looks like a revenge.
    They may have thought that when you have already removed their code (means lost a publisher) then why pay remaining payments?

    Nice to know that Bounce rate reduced, rather than redirecting your tech-savvy readers to some marriage portal.
    Good Luck.

    These guys have no other options to stop the bloggers from not posting their loot. Hence they try to opt for other options. Atleast they should pay for what you earned till date.

    February 25, 2011 11:13 AM

    Thanks Amit Bhawani for your valuable comment here. Yes they can’t stop people, all the responses says it.

    I removed kontera ads from my blog. I got just $.005 for 12 clicks from kontera. They are the worst ad network the web.

    anish you are right !
    infolinks really sucks even big players in blogging are not makking a good earnings from infolinks ,
    me too removed infolinks ads from my blog ,
    infolinks really slow downs our blog,makes our blog looks ugly ,
    i think using infolinks is a waste of time and losing our adsense and other ads clicks
    every publisher should remove it

    Infolinks are real cheaters.
    I was waiting for attaining payment threshold so that i can stop using it.At last after long 10 months wait I attained payment threshold,within the next 2 days they banned me.I lost above $50.Actually Infolinks motto should be changed as—Linking text to “their” revenue….

    Using inline text links creates lot of irritation while reading. You need not have any worries for getting banned. But u should analyze what made that happen. Check whether any thing wrong is happening so that the problem wont continue with other ad networks.

  15. Anish K.S

    February 27, 2011 3:41 PM

    Mukundan Srinivasan, I got an explanation mail from infolinks that their system found an illegal activity from mys side. it may be the no impressions. they have lot of issues in their reporting system, i mean bugs. last year i reported a couple of bugs with screen shots to them.

  16. sujith lal

    February 27, 2011 5:23 PM

    Visitors coming via Opera Mini will not feel Infolinks as an ad.They can see it as a link only,Which will lead to unwanted clicks and it is a fault from infolinks side.

  17. Anish K.S

    February 28, 2011 1:26 PM

    @ Harpreet Singh.

    1, Infolinks is no more interested to pay


    2, They have serious issues with their system, so this kind of banning.

    Hii Anish K.S

    I mailed infolinks asking them why i was banned. The first email that i got was

    ” We have detected fraudulent activities in your Infolinks Publisher account and
    your account has been permanently suspended. Accordingly, your account is hereby
    suspended until further notice and any pending credit is revoked. ”

    Then I mailed them again saying that I have done nothing wrong and I am also getting decent traffic..I got the following reply

    “The reason that we have blocked your account is due to severe warnings from our advertisers on your traffic and due to our analysts data; we had no other choice but to block your account.

    We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.”

    I think they have overtaken Kontera and now are putting ban on few as to be competitive to adsense.. (HAHAHA)

    I also like the postives that you have given of not having infolinks. (thanks to Amit Bhawani)

  20. Anish K.S

    March 1, 2011 9:46 PM

    Haha, Same content to me also,

    ” severe warnings from our advertisers “, its not correct its ” severe warnings from, but i have very positive experience with shaadi,com.

    This is a bad move from Infolinks. They should atleast provide the proper answer/reason to ban your account. I still use Kontera but their eCPM is dropping day by day.

    Hi Anish, First my congrats to you for posting about these frauds, i heard about lot of online scams, these people cheating both publishers and the advertisers at same time. one of my friend said that he got just .5$ for 200+ Clicks.

  26. Anish K.S

    March 2, 2011 10:48 PM

  28. Rahul Solanki

    March 4, 2011 6:24 PM

    sorry that your account was suspended.but if you asked that why they suspended your account may helped some bloggers and webmaster (what invalid activity happen?).

    I don;t say that i not agree with amitbhawani but it may helped some peoples who are earning online via blogging,websites,forum etc…..

    with same reason..
    but I don’t give up for this.. 😀

    March 7, 2011 8:33 PM

    I also have read Amit Bhawani post that you have mentioned, and left a comment and my experience with infolinks and kontera.

    Both ad networks are useless. They are making money but they do not want to give any share.

    March 9, 2011 6:16 PM

    Anish, thanks for your article, I stopped using Infolinks about 3 weeks ago and I too have seen increased in daily visits and adsense earnings. I can probably safely say that readers did get put off by in-text ads and sometimes all you have to do is acidentally hover your mouse over an ad link and you get a pop-up review, which can be frustrating. It is a shame becasue I actually liked using Infolinks.

  32. Trixya

    March 11, 2011 11:47 AM

    That’s horrible – Infolinks is a big brand and it must first discuss the problem with the respective publisher, rather than straight away go on banning spree. Feeling very sorry for anish 🙁

    Hi,Anish K.S .. I like ur option given for all. I think adsense is better than all these things but how can i easily get approved from google adsense.
    Thank u

  46. Anish K.S

    April 24, 2011 8:27 AM

    did u need a ban from infolinks ?. just remove their code for 2-3 days, at 4th day you will get the notification ” you are banned ”


  47. sathish

    April 25, 2011 1:36 PM

    its better to avoid infolinks since it provides very low payment as per click.
    the better one is the adsense but it is difficult to get the adsense approval account.
    IF U hav an idea abt getting adsense approval plz reply me.
    thnk u.

  48. sathish

    April 25, 2011 1:40 PM

    its better choice to avoid infolinks that it gives low payment as per click.. but comparatively the better one is adsense its give 1$ as per 1click but its difficult to get the adsense aprroval account (especially in India).
    If u guys having any idea abt this you can mail me at

    June 12, 2011 11:25 PM

    I had been using infolinks for many months but end up with only pennies , might be due to my low traffic at my site…After removing it atleast my site loading speed increased and there is a small rise in average monthly traffic..Thanks to my decision i get high ppc from adsence for the visitors coming from google search engines which weas not present before..

    July 9, 2011 6:23 PM

    If you are using google adsense, There is no need to any other program to generate money from your contents. Google is the best. I have also seen in the forums people are complaining about low CTR after implementing infolinks ads on their website.

  56. BLOG404

    August 24, 2011 7:24 AM

    Aww . That’s sad . I never know infolinks also bans publishers just like adsense :p
    Still its more awesome than kontera

    Infolinks IS NOT PAYING!! mine was over $50 dollar about 3 – 4 months ago, but until now they still not pay me. So i removed it from one of my blog that i put it . No wonder, the setting in Infolinks dashboard is so bad too …….

    Infolinks is another abomination in the long list of abominates that secretly and systematically steals your money from you. I recently disabled Infolinks from all my sites and begged them to close my account while keeping the whole shebang I earned and shamelessly they did so!

    It began when I started receiving relentless emails from them saying I need to declare my Taxation through Infolinks through W8-BEN. I do submit them from year to year and after sending them copies of my W8-BEN forms repeatedly all I got was SQUAT! No Reply! No reasonable answer! instead I get same email for going down the memory lane again and again following the same steps….

    This time I thought they better shut me down for good! Since they are not financially or most importantly not a bit morally backed up, they did the same without shame! So, The dime and time I lost don’t matter they proved themselves shamelessly to be ignorant and money laundering leeches!
