Text link advertising has gotten a bad wrap. When Google began penalizing sites which utilized this form of advertising, the entire SEO industry took a pretty substantial hit when it came to credibility. When all you have to do is buy your way to the top you know there is a systemic problem. Purchasing a few well researched text ads on relevant websites influenced search engine placement so well that for many it became a standard practice. Since it no longer carries the same weight (or so many are led to believe) you would think that there would be fewer and fewer resources to help Web professional achieve high rankings - not the case in the least.
I came across TextAdMarket.com today in an affiliate industry forum. While the service is serving up just 20,000 impressions (not clicks) per day, the solution as a whole looks (while similar to others) rather interesting. Advertisers looking to buy ads can vary the length of time their ads appear, receive the same targeted capabilities as services such as Textlinkads.com in an open marketplace style listing environment, have a minimum purchase price of just $20 and have access to some complimentary analytics. If you're looking to sell a service like this, TextAdMarket is offering 10% commission - which is a pretty good rate, but don't expect much with only 20K impressions daily across the network.
