Monetizing Your Ghost blog with Infolinks is a very simple process that takes no more than 2 minutes.
I used Infolinks for this example because most of my sites convert better with them but you can use the same method to integrate Google AdSense.
So let’s start… If you still don’t have an account with infolinks follow the link and sign up for their publishers program : www.infolinks.com.
The approval process usually takes not more than 24 hours. After receiving an email confirmation that your account has been approved login in your Infolinks account and visit the dashboard. Check if you need to amend your account or website data (add a new website if you need to) and go to “Integrate” tab.
Copy the code provided in your editor or just in Notepad.
Next go to your Ghost installation and find your active theme folder. In this example I used the default
Ghost theme “Casper”. The files of the theme are located in
Open the file
default.hbs and scroll down to find the
Save and re-upload (if you are using FTP) the
default.hbs to your active theme folder.
Restart Ghost to make sure that the change is live and you are done. Your Infolinks ads should appear on your blog almost immediately and your blog can start earning some money.
