SponsoredReviews.com, a service that connects advertisers with bloggers willing to write honest reviews about their products and services, has added a new feature to their program – LinkSets.
LinkSets allow you to create an unlimited number of URL/Link Text combinations inside of your opportunities. The LinkSets system will then automatically handle assigning those links to bloggers as you purchase reviews.

For starters they claim to offer lower transaction fees and a bidding system. Following are a few key points the service will offer.
