What is VigLink? Complete Review
VigLink is an affiliate network with in-text ad network features. You can use it as ad network as well as the affiliate network. If you don’t know about affiliate marketing, read What is Affiliate Marketing. OR you can also take this Affiliate Marketing course from Udemy.
When you install VigLink code on your website, it will automatically link your keywords to the advertiser’s websites just like Infolinks. It will also convert your existing links to the affiliate links. When anyone purchases through that link, you will get the commission. That means there is a chance to get extra income with your existing content and links. You can use it along with other affiliate networks and Adsense also.

Advertisers and Products
It is the huge network with over 50000 advertisers and 500M+ products. I did not see any other affiliate network with these number of advertisers. It is partnered with almost all retail stores like Amazon and all other digital products and services.
It has Cost Per Click, Cost Per Action, and Cost Per Sale advertisers. But most of them cost Per Sale products. If your website or niche cannot make sales, you will earn less compare to Infolinks. But if your website depends on affiliate marketing, you will make the good income with this network. If you don’t find the affiliate program for any one of the advertisers, you better search in VigLink, there is a chance that you will find the affiliate program.
VigLink does not approve small blogs. There is no guarantee to get approval. My tech blog did not get approval in initial days. But later they have approved my blog.
The best part is, you need not get approval from individual advertisers. You are pre-approved for almost all advertisers. Of course, there might be some advertisers from which you need to get manual approval. My application was rejected from some advertisers in other affiliate networks. Still, I am using the same advertiser’s affiliate links from VigLink.
How to Use VigLink

Log in to your VigLink dashboard. Go to Manage -> Account. Select Add a Campaign. Give Full details about your website.
You will see an option to check the code installation in VigLink dashboard. But it did not work properly for me. It showed that I did not install the code correctly. But my application was approved after some days.
Wait for some days to get approval. You will receive mail about the approval.
After getting approval, You need to change some settings in VigLink dashboard.

You can easily understand the meaning of the options. You can check the options what you like. I recommend you to select Advanced option and select New window option which will open your affiliate links in new window.
You can enable it or you can disable it. If you enable it, it will insert affiliate links to some keywords just like Infolinks. You can check below screenshot for my settings.
