Adding Kontera

    Tried searching on how to add Kontera to a hub. Recently published my first Hub and I don't see my Kontera ads showing up on there. Do I need to add an HTML capsule and paste the Kontera code in there to the hub, or am I missing something here? Thanks

      No you don't need to add HTML.

      First go to http://hubpages.com/my/affiliate , there you must add your Affiliate IDs of Adsense, Kontera etc. And on that page you will also see:
        "Enable Kontera on my new hubs by default"

      Check that option to activate Kontera on all of your hubs. You can do it for each of your hub by editing it and checking the box which says display Kontera on this hub.


      A Suggestion: Do not activate Kontera now, as their ads do not make much money and if you earn less than $5 with Kontera in a month, your earnings will be rolled back. And you most likely are not going to make that much with a single hub.

        This is no longer the case.  All earnings roll over until you meet the minimum payout.

        This is not true, kontera no longer does this, if you earn less than $5 they are rolled over to the next month.

    Thanks Ultimate Hubber smile

    I guess I'll disable my Kontera until I get decent traffic in the meantime. I hear that it takes away from Adsense earnings anyways, so wouldn't want to miss on any opportunities.

      So ... there is some conflicting info here that probably should be cleared up ( by someone in the know; not me )

      1)  Is there still a reason to wait to activate Kontera, now that they roll over low dollar earnings until you reach the pay-out minimum?

      2)  DOES Kontera take away from Adsense earnings?

        Rather than directly answer the question I'll make a comparison, in my experience...

        Kontera's contextualisation is crap. The highlighted keyword is often never in context with what the hub is about. And the ad is often never in context with what the highlighted keyword is about.

        Kontera doesn't pay out as much per click.

        So in the off chance you do get a click, that click may have instead been 'spent' on an Adsense ad. And would have been worth 10 or more times what Kontera pays.

        Having said all that, here are some things to take into account...

        It might not always have been that way, and it may not stay that way.

        I ran Kontera ads on my hubs for a while, and the results were underwhelming. Much later, and not too long ago, I tried them again, and the results were still disappointing. However... even though I don't have ads running on my hubs, I do have referrals who have them running on theirs, so I am getting 10% of the ad impressions. So I am still earning a little bit each month.

        You might want to publish a hub on a topic that gets a LOT of traffic but has a very low CPC and only run Kontera on that hub, and in turn any referrals you have that are running Kontera may also have hubs that result in earning that you can accrue.

    Personal experience is that (with testing) Kontera has not drastically altered my AdSense earnings.

    However kontera has also never earnt me a huge amount.  I think of Kontera as an extra $30 a month beer money.
