lol...After almost 3 months of silence, I could suddenly see some clicks and some money in my konterra account. I had long time back thought that it doesn't work at all. I don't know if it worked from hubpages (coz I never see any konterra enabled fields or ads here in my hubs, or in other hubs). It might be from my personal blog. Still, just wanted to share it here!!
My 100 or so hubs make between $15 and $25 a month from Kontera. I don't enable them on some hubs because I reckon they drive people crazy. On the other hand, money is money.
You will only see the kontera adverts if you sign out from hubpages and go to one of your hubs I guess its one of their failsafe devices to prevent click fraud. It is reccomended you only use kontera if you are earning $50 or more a month from google adsense, because if you do not meet their payout threshold within 30 days they keep the money.
Oh! In that case, whatever I've earned might go to "Konterra charity" !! I don't see any way to make that payout in 30 days!!
Kontera pay out is thirty days after you reach the minimum payment which is $100. You don't need to make $100 a month. Having said that I'm just reporting what is commonly reported in blogs etc. I am close to $100 but haven't quite reached it yet.
I have seen no loss on the adsense front since enabling Kontera. I might disable it for a while just to see if I can see a difference. Problem is, the Kontera income is very slow to begin with and builds - I reckon they have some way of optimizing ads served over time.
Congrats on making money from any means... Kontera is not receiving getting too much HubLove lately however, you might want to check out this forum post before switching all your hubs over to Kontera ....
Jonathan from Kontera here. Just wanted to update you guys that the minimum payout threshold on Kontera has just been lowered from $100 to $50, across all payout methods.
Additionally, if you can't make the (now) $50 threshold within 30 days, Kontera does NOT keep your money, it'll just roll over into the next month until you do meet the minimum payout.

Although I have enabled Kontera Ads on all my Hubs, I cannot see any Kontera ad on any of my hub. I visited my account page on Kontera's web site and everything is perfect according to my knowledge.

I can't seem to pull up the new terms and conditions revisions. Can anyone tell me what they are? I got an email yesterday saying I have 30 days to say my objections or something like that.
