I turned Kontera on in July. and I have finally managed to reach the minimum payout threshold of $100
So, I have turned them off. I can now expect Kontera to pay me in January as they pay 30 days after the end of the month in which you reach their threshold.
So, Kontera will have kept the money I earned in July for 6 months before paying me and the least amount of time they will have kept any of my money is 45 days.
I personally think this is unreasonably long for a small publisher, considering the low eCPM -
$1.17 per 1,000 impressions.
Thats Great. Congratulations.
I am still $10 behind. I removed Kontera from my Site long back and still managed to reach $90 which I think is good enough.
I don't know what to say to that........
Mark, I have 25.00 to go and I am turning them off as it seems like they are taking from us more so then, given honestly.
Sir: I did not get you. Did I say something wrong ?
Kontera will only pay out after $100, so if you stopped at $90 you are not going to get paid
Whitney - my eCPM has been up and down like a barmaid's knickers the last few months so I have no idea what effect kontera has had
But - I think 6 months to wait is too long so I have turned it off. As far as I can see, if a reader clicks on a kontera ad, they will not click on a google ad, so I have decided they are not worth it.
Yeildbuild seems to be improving all the time, so I will give it another 6 months and see.
Mark, Thanks for the valuable info I have shut it down as there isn't any need to wait. Thank you again. :
Yes I know that. I just removed the codes from my site NOT the HUBS. Money is still coming from my Hubs.
I am expecting to reach the $100 Mark within 10-15 Days.
I got my Kontera payment this month for a month or so ago. I'm still debating on whether I want to shut it off or not. I will admit I received my first Kontera payment much faster than Google, but I will agree that the Google eCPM is much much higher than Kontera. I don't think that I'll ever make my Kontera earnings as high as my Google per month, which is sad. I have noticed that this current quarter my earnings are half way to my second payout, so I'll probably wait till my second payout until I shut it off. If I decide to.
Mark, keep us updated as to whether shutting off your Kontera creates any changes with your Google earnings.
Well, Kontera has kept every penny that I've earned (you can imagine how many pennies).....the amounts weren't enough to carry forward, so I'm going to turn them off since it seems pointless for someone like myself.
When I first started with Amazon.com several years ago on my own web site, it took months before I earned enough to get paid. Same goes for when I first started with AdSense. So the fact that Kontera takes several months to get to the payout point doesn't seem any different to me.
I think the earnings I'm seeing are enough that I'm continuing with them. If anything is driving down ad earnings, I think it has to do with the overall economy, and not the fact that two ad systems exist side-by-side.
To put that into perspective, I get paid every single month by adsense, ebay and amazon, but I will only get paid once every 6 months with kontera.
While it took me 3 months to get paid with adsense the first time, I was creating the content at the time, but kontera was added to existing content and I have consistently earned enough with adsense to get paid every month since the first payment.
Personally, I can't be bothered to wait that long, and all 3 other revenue streams have a far higher eCPM than kontera.
I would need somewhere in the region of 170,000 page views a month before getting paid every month by knotera. 60 days in arrears.
Perhaps you have that level of views, but I don't.

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...

Hi all,I have been keeping a careful record of the Kontera earnings, since someone commented, and I noticed, that my earnings seemed to be hovering just under the payout level, month after month.I have now discovered...

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...

I need to find out how to optimize and make the most out of my hubs. With Kontera, do I need to sign up as well?

I have earned $2000 from Google... so is it something that I should be congratulated about or laughed at?

Hello Everyone,I was reading some topics on hubbers getting their first payout and it took them up to 9 months to receive from Adsence. I was wondering does Kontera take that long as well. In your opinion, out of all of...
