I recently made some hubs that have been generating pretty good traffic. I was earning about a dollar a day on Adsense, some days $3 and some days 50 cents.
I figured when I got to this point that I would throw it on. So I did.
Adsense earning yesterday: 8 clicks $5 (my best day ever)
Kontera earnings yesterday: 7 clicks $0.03
If it did as good as adsense I would be alright, however at this moment, I should almost turn it off. However, upon looking at the ads, I really didn't think they were too overwhelming.
I think the Kontera ads just need to be on my sites for a little, bit. Anyone know?
I've never had any luck with Kontera, at all.. From what I understand, few people do on here. I turned it off simply because I always made more with Google..
I've kept Kontera on but it is pretty bad. I keep thinking it might get better but its been a year now???!!! I'm not holding my breath.
I turned mine off a few months ago, They simply do not pay enough PPC. I think Kontera has potential but unless they change there program for the better, I will not use them.
Theres nothing wrong with experimentation, but I am done with them at this point.
This is Jonathan from Kontera. I'd be more than happy to help any of you optimize your account for Kontera, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Kontera has an exclusive ad inventory from some of the biggest brand names in the world including Microsoft, Nintendo, L'Oreal, Ford, Sony, Pizza Hut, National Geographic, Blackberry, and more. These premium, often Rich-Media ads are the most eye catching to site visitors, offer the best possible CPC, and are only available through the Kontera network.
If for some reason your not receiving these ads, I'd be happy to look into it.
Regarding using Kontera and AdSense together, it generally isn't an issue. Because Kontera and AdSense are displayed in different sections of an webpage, they don't cannibalize each others ad clicks, and you can only ad to your overall ad revenue by using both.
Additionally, because of the problem of banner blindness, where some users get so over saturated in seeing banner ads that they just start ignoring them completely, there's a whole segment of your site readers whose ad clicks you'd be missing out on completely without also using an In-Text network.

Kontera earning become a question mark for me. I think rarely people get payout through Kontera.
I have not used Kontera so far, but based on comments I think we are better off without it. Has anyone tried Chitika?
At the Hubpages Hollywood Hubcamp, there was mention that the staff is looking at how much Kontera is cannibalizing from adsense clicks. It will be interesting to see what happens
I had it on for a few months but I no longer bother. You earn a pittance and whenever I visit a page with Kontera adverts I feel like I'm moving my mouse across a minefield.
Some pro hubbers say that it takes 100,000 views/month before you earn decent money with Kontera.
Also, Kontera used to have a policy that if you earnt less than $5 for the month, they'd keep it and it wouldn't roll over to the next month. They've changed this policy due to overwhelming pressure from users, but I think they lost a lot of people from that, too.
I have seen so few positive comments on Kontera that I have never bothered to even turn it on.
Yeah I have as well, but I felt it would be dumb for me to not give it a try. And like I said, my best day of adsense just happened and it was on, so I can't say it hurts(for sure).
I'll give it a couple more days, but like you guys I am sure, it has a possibility of taking adsense clicks away. And if I can't get money for the clicks, why would I feed Kontera.
Yeah - Kontera ads aren't worth it. They need to work on their advertising business if they want to keep publishers in my opinion. I can't name one person who has tried it out and stuck with them.
I used Kontera on my blog and hubpages for almost one year, It was showing less than $1 when I turned it off and started using Infolinks on my blog. I made are around $15 in 5-6 months, not very high but its better compared to Kontera.
I read many hubbers are getting decent money through Kontera, but I think they can even earn more than 5 times if they use Infolinks. I'll be more than happy if HP provides an option to use Infolinks.
I personally see Kontera as a waste of my time on Hub Pages, as Google Adsense and Amazon ads clearly are doing the business. I think Hubs are better with another company instead of Kontera. Why have they not tried do a deal with Clickbank or Linkshare, there's lots of text ad companies out there...and Apple are starting the iAds now too. People have to move with the times and will inevitably move to the greener pastures too.
If it's making you money then why not try experimenting with it a little more. Create a blogger blog and write on niche which is getting you kontera clicks on hubpages. (You can see which URL's making you money by looking at kontera reports.)
I was thinking about trying Kontera but I think I'll hold off until I hear something positive; other than a posting from someone working for kontera Thanks to all of you for the heads up!

I am pretty new to hubpages, and I hear that a lot of people make money off of adsense and amazon, but I have heard almost nothing about Kontera. Is anyone using this or making any moeny from it? Is it worth my time?

I don't believe Kontera is nearly as good as adsense. I have gained some clicks from kontera, but they do not give much revenue. Do you think people clicking on my kontera ads could potentially be hurting my adsense...
