1. Matching Highlight Color/Link Color

There is an option on the right side of the customization wizard to set your site’s text and background colors. There you can see how Infolinks In-text links will be displaying on your website.
Choose your link color wisely. Make your link color that suits your website’s hyperlink color to get more clicks.
2. Use Single Underline
Infolinks serves better-paying ads with double underlined keyword.
So people tend to use double underline, which gives a clear message to your website visitors –Hey I am using In-text ads.
So it is better to make it dotted, so people think this as a normal link and this will increase your CTR.
3. Maximum Links Per Page
Infolinks recommend keeping the links per page to its maximum(12). They are saying then only visitors get the feeling of ads on your website pages.
If all your pages have more than 1000 words content, you can try this technique. Otherwise, keep the links per page to 6.
Note : Don’t annoy your users with too many ads.
4. Choose the Best Content Category
You can choose any of the content categories from the given list. Choose the correct category for your website for better-targeted ads.
You can easily change your current category from ‘My Websites’ menu. Select a proper category for your website and see the result.
5. Make Use of Infolinks On/off Text – Infolinks Ads Placement Control
The placement tags allow the publisher to control where to display the Infolinks ads.
The Infolinks off tag
<!--INFOLINKS_OFF--> turns off the script. Place it just before the section of text in which you do not want InText ads. You should put the Infolinks on tag
<!--INFOLINKS_ON--> when you want to turn the script on again (when you want ads to appear).
Remove the ads from your header and sidebar using the Infolinks On/off Text. So you will get more ads in your content and this will increase your CTR.
