I just got Kontera up and running within the last week. The first day or so, a few cents was on there. On - like - the third day it appeared that earnings were 1.20-something. The next day that went down to closer to 1.00. Each day since (a couple) it has dropped (to about 80) and today to about 62.
Is this normal? I read the thing about "metrics fluctuating", but I thought that was more related to the ups and downs that may go on. I have no clue about why whatever appeared to earnings keeps going down (and I have visions of owing them money at some point! )
Is it a sign I should just stop putting their ads on?
Is it a sign I should do something different?
I like that... visions of owing them money thats hilarious! ... I think you are most likely accumulating those amounts.
Oh - thanks. After I saw your post I went back and looked more carefully at the period for which the report is. They do it a little differently than Ad Sense does. I'm not losing earnings - just getting worse and worse earnings as the days have gone by. (I suppose that shouldn't make me feel better - but I guess it does, in view of the original issue I thought I had. )
I find with Kontera, that my earnings are so low compared to my Adsense, that I only seem to check it once a week anyway. What's more annoying Lisa is that every now and then, the update on your earnings won't work and it'll have problems for a few days. It's not as polished as Adsense.
But due to you having to do nothing, it's worth keeping it on.
Don't worry gals and guys. Google has introduced Kontera-like expandable ads on AdSense sites.
You're automatically eligible to receive expandable ads if you've added the AdSense code directly into your page's source code and you've enabled image ads.
Expandable ads are currently only available to specific advertisers located in the U.S., who can bid on specific sites where they'd like their ads to appear.
I hope Hubpages will advice accordingly.
I think the Expandable ads will look better, meaning more people will probably click them.
I agree with you Whitney. I believe it's because of this ability to expand that makes Kontera ads get higher chance of more clicks than adsense per any given page.
Every few months. I'm actually closing the account once I get my next payment. I've reached $100, but have the entire month plus next month to wait for payment.
I think that's probably true, because people probably accidentally click them more often than on purpose. I mean, I've found that most of my Kontera ads don't even have anything to do with what my hub is about, so why else would hundreds of people click these ads each week? They just pick a keyword and put an ad to it. I'm hoping the Google expandable ads are more relevant to the topics at hand. Plus, being Google affiliated the each click will probably have more pennies in our pockets versus just 0.002 or whatever.
I just thought that Kontera ads are annoying when I visit other web pages. So I never turn it on for my hubs. It's all about user experience, more than anything.
Is it possible to turn off Kontera on all hubs at a click of a button or we have to do one by one?

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that...

I signed up for Kontera a week or so ago. The code is set under the affiliate settings, but I am not sure if I am seeing any Kontera stuff on any of my Hubs. What does Kontera ads look like? Plus, I...

I'm curious how you guys are fairing with Kontera since it has been added to HP. Please include how many hubs you have Kontera ads on, as well. I think it'll create a better impression as to how well it has done on...

It is strange to note that my earnings from Kontera ads were $32 in October end but now total earnings are $27.5. Though earnings are increasing every month but total earnings are decreasing. I tried to contact kontera...

Now that I achieve about 12000 page views per day, I felt it a good idea to give Kontera a whirl to see how I got on. Afterall, I have heard that people can achieve $5+ per 10000 page views.It was a complete failure,...

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense...
