How To (And Why You Should) Disable Infolinks Search Ads

Years back, websites like Infolinks and Kontera gained popularity due to their innovative non-obstructive in-text ads, which do not shift the focus of your readers from the main content to adverts. As every innovative idea cannot win, depending on the difference in the commission and payout rate while some websites retained and added more publishers & advertisers, some others lost too. By my first hand experience, I found Infolinks as the best In-Text advertiser.
But recently, Infolinks introduced another (well not so innovative product) (a Search based Widget) and enabled it automatically for all the publishers. The idea is good (although reminds me of Chitika). But unlike Chitika, the placement of this new widget is highly obstructive for most screen resolutions, especially if you are viewing the site on laptops.

By using this widget, you may see a little increase in the click-through rate, but it will certainly upset many of your first time visitors by hindering a clear view of your blog or article. And thus reducing the chances of converting your first time readers to permanent readers.

Here's how you can disable them... As this widget is enabled automatically, you need to log in to your Infolinks account to disable it.
Once you log in, go to the Customize page. Then go to Search Widget, by selecting the appropriate link from the sidebar. And finally un-tick the the option "Turn on Search Widget ads for ***.com" for any or all your websites. And finally Save the settings.
