Q: Are they effective for advertisers? A: I can't really answer that. I've never used them, so you'll have to ask someone who has. Of course, you could ask one ofrepparttar companies that offers text link ad technology, but you already know their answer...

Q: Will they become more popular? A: Once again, I can't answer that question with any authority. But I have my suspicions; I suspect they will become more popular, simply because there are a lot of web publishers out there who are willing to try programs that offer a revenue return. Ultimately,repparttar 149702 popularity of text link ads hinges how successful they are for advertisers, not how well-liked they are among users.

Q: Can I stop it happening to my reprint article? A: No. I believe that power lies solely withrepparttar 149703 publisher. Of course, you can forbid it in your reprint guidelines, but that will simply limitrepparttar 149704 number of times your article is reprinted (consequently limiting your referral traffic and link popularity).

Conclusion - Are any of these questions really important to article submission authors?

In my humble opinion,repparttar 149705 answer, once again, is “No!” As authors of reprint articles, we loverepparttar 149706 Google AdSense arrangement because it creates a demand for quality content. The more high quality articles a publisher reprints,repparttar 149707 higher their site rank,repparttar 149708 greater their traffic, andrepparttar 149709 more they earn fromrepparttar 149710 pay-per-click ads on their site. As a result, our article submissions get widely published and we build brand awareness, credibility, authority, referral traffic, and – of course – link popularity (i.e. increased rank).

Text link ads are no different. Like Google ads, they encouragerepparttar 149711 publisher to acquire more high quality content. It's as simple as that.

“But my article is hijacked! What ifrepparttar 149712 reader doesn't return?” There's no denying we'd prefer to keep our reader. But most readers know whererepparttar 149713 'Back' button is, so if your article is good enough, they'll be sure to click it. And if they don't, well at least you've gotrepparttar 149714 permanent link back to your site inrepparttar 149715 byline of your article. And after all, that's one ofrepparttar 149716 big benefits of article submission, isn't it?

Anyway, enough talk. Let's see how it all unfolds.

Happy hijacking!
