I guess one of the first questions that will go through your mind will be why you should consider implementing these ads on your blog. Well, their main advantages are:

Some of the ad networks that offer this advertising format, such as Infolinks, allow you to change the look of your ads so that they are not underlined twice, but are dotted. You can also choose the color of the underline.

Which ad networks offer in-text ads
The largest network is called Infolinks. They accept blogs with little traffic. So, if you have just started and you still do not have many visits, try them out.
Another alternative you can try is Clicksor. Or just search in Google and find other smaller companies.
