TNX is a pretty unique service; you can use it for link building, making money and buy links to your site. Buying links will increase your PageRank, give you more visitors and get your site higher ranked on the search engines. Link building is one of the most time consuming jobs for a webmaster, but it is very important to get people to the site. TNX will help you with this and you can work with what you should be doing, creating a better site!
In this review, we are only looking at TNX from a publisher's point of view, so we are going to sell links, not buy them.
So, why TNX?
Many other advertising networks pays you for click, leads or impressions, which means that you are practically selling your visitors to other sites, the more people you send to other sites, the more you earn. Maybe that is not what you would like to do with your hard earned visitors. If you use TNX instead, you are just selling links, you add links on your pages, and you get paid just for having them there. So I get paid for nothing? No, not really, many SEO (Search Engine Optimization) experts claims that outlinks hurts your ranking on the search engines, so that's a risk you are taking with adding extra links to your site.
I use TNX on a couple of my sites, and I am very happy with it, this is a service I really recommend. It might not be much money, but if you have a pretty popular site with a few subpages, TNX should cover your expenses. It also encourages you to add more pages to your site, so you will probably work harder with your site as well.
Ready for signing up?
Alright, this is how it works. You go to TNX and click on the "Join Now"-link. You will now see a standard registration page, with one exception; not anyone can join TNX, it is a closed invitation only system. You need to have got invited by someone else, but don't worry; DEVPPL got an invitation code for you, just use the link below, and the invitation code should be filled in when get to the registration-page:
If it is not pre-filled, use this code: ffffffffeb3b6419
When you have signed up, just log into the members-area in the upper left corner and you will be redirected to a nice clean interface, which I personally like very much, it gives the impression that you are working with a serious company.
You should now see a welcome text, and you should click on the link 1. Install the TNX code on your site.
You can also click the GET CODE-button in the menu to the left.
Follow the instructions on that page and install the code on all pages on your site.
You will now have to add your site to the system, click on the Add new site-button in the menu to the left and enter the information about your site. It will take 1-3 days for the TNX moderators to approve your site. When your site has been approved, you will automatically get links to all off the pages that you have added the code to. To speed things up, you can manually add links to your pages, if you don't have that many pages, you can do it manually, but for bigger sites, that takes too much time, they will pop up automatically.
Maximize your income!
By default, only one link will appear on every page that you have added the TNX-code on, I recommend you to change this to 4 links per page, and you will earn 4 times as much. To do this, click on "Site list" in the menu to the left, now click on the text link show site options + and some more info will be shown. Now you just have to wait until TNX has indexed your page, it usually takes a few days for the first pages start to show up. We should now update the Yahoo Backlinks, to get the right price for your links. Click on Site list in the menu to the left and then show site options + and click on Update Yahoo BackLinks. Now click on Manage Pages and Choose Advertisers. If you have got any pages indexed, they will be shown here. Click on All to select all pages on that page, then scroll down and click on the button Check Google PR of selected pages. You will get paid more for high PR pages, and this checks the PR of your pages and recalculates their price.
If you refresh the page (F5) your pages will now be ordered by their PageRank and the links you will get paid the most for will be on the top. Click on + Add new link and a box will appear where you can choose which link you would like to add. If you have chosen to have 4 links on every page, you can do this 4 times for every page.
I never bother to add links manually to my pages with PR0, links will be added automatically within a few weeks, so I don't think it's worth the effort, but I do recommend adding links manually to your high PR pages.
How does the system work?
The system is pretty simple, for every page you add the code to, you will show 4 links to other sites, you get points for these links and you can use those points to either buy links to your site from others, or just sell your points for money.
The value of a link = the amount of points you get for a link are being calculated based on the pages PageRank, Yahoo Backlinks and a few other factors like Alexa ranking and so on. So the more people linking to your site, the more points will you get for your links and the more money will you earn, it's as simple as that.
At the time when I'm writing this, you will get $0.95 for 1000 points, but if you register in their forum, you can sell your points to advertisers and get about $1 .00 to $1.10 for 1000 points.
So let's do some math then, let's say that you add 4 links to a page on your site and you get 100 points per link, you get 400 points which equals $0.95/1000x200 = 40 cents. If you then add links to all pages on your site, and you have 100 pages, you will get $40 per month, and that is much more than the average site makes per year with advertising.
TNX really knows how to share revenue with their users, if you refer another webmaster to their system, you will get an amazing 13.3% of what that site owner earns, without that user getting any less than he would do if you didn't referred him/her.
So let's say you refer a friend and that site generates 50.000 points per month, you will get 50.000x0,133 = 6.650 points, and this is not for the first month or something, this is lifetime, which means that you work once and get paid monthly for the rest of your life.
All you need to do is to give someone an invitation code and when they sign up, you will first of all get a 100 points bonus just for that person signing up, and then you will earn when links are being sold as well.
To generate an invitation code, click on How to advertise in the menu to the left and then hit the "Create new invite"-button. This is a onetime code, so you will have to generate a new code for every time you should refer another webmaster.
Alright, so this is it?
Nope, TNX are now offering new members 5.000 free points if you sign up and get approved now. So in a few days when your site has been approved and you have added the code to all your pages, register in the TNX forums and send make a post in this thread to get your bonus:
