A couple of days back myself and many other writers got a shock at Wizzley to find the Adsense ads had vanished from all our Wizzles. This is being looked into by the ream there but it is very worrying and like many other people I have taken my Adsense code out of action there just in case.
Until Adsense ads come back, if they come back, and hopefully they will, Chitika ads are showing instead.
I have an account there, but I've never posted. I got an e-mail a couple of days ago where they were looking to see if any users had gotten an e-mail from AdSense because apparently either an ad placement or some other issue had caused them to lose their AdSense privileges. It said that AdSense might have mailed the user instead of Wizzley directly.
Yesterday I got the same e-mail that Georgie describes above - I had actually forgotten that I even had an account at Wizzley, so it was kind of a surprise (I joined about a year ago, but never posted anything there).
I just took a look at your "website" link on your profile and it goes to an empty Wordpress blog. You're missing an opportunity if you don't link to your Blogger blog on your profile, if it's the one that's got content on it.
I'm guessing you're fairly new to the blogosphere? I just posted an answer to Brimancandy which is very relevant to you:
Blogs were once personal diaries, or a place to muse on any topic. These days, you must pick one topic and stick to it faithfully. Choose something that's dear to your heart, or you'll run out of material sooner than you think! Also, be sure to pick a URL for the blog that's descriptive of the content, not something jokey.
If you want to write on a broad range of subjects, revenue-sharing sites like HubPages are built for that. Blogs have to be focussed.
I think what's a happened at Wizzley is just the ad placement, not the number of ads. Apparently all websites are reviewed every couple of months and if they want the website owners to change something they give them so many days, but Wizzley didn't receive the email requesting them too, therefore, they didn't change anything.
So now they've changed the placement and it's just a case of Google acknowledging that they have so ads are enabled again.
Product articles do very well in terms of clicks and conversions. Recipe articles so, so. Just interesting content really and if you manage to receive a couple of EC awards you're on the front page which brings in a fair bit of traffic- Also, you can interlink to other articles (obviously) but also show your own related content in the sidebar.
Adsense is back at Wizzley. That's two long weeks without ad income for members - and it turns out the reason was content on one member's account, specifically photos which Adsense found unacceptable.
I know people get frustrated when HubPages disables ads because of the content, and we all feel they're overly strict in their interpretation of the Adsense rules sometimes - but look what happens when a site is more lenient! This experience makes me grateful that HubPages takes the attitude it does.
As discussed in this thread The Chitika advertising network would be a good alternative to Adsense and Kontera or an additional revenue source. Chitika is easier to affiliate with than either Google Adsense and...
Hi to all there! I hope that u all are fine! Hi To Hubpages team, What I am going to suggest is to add Chitika ads (similar to adsense) to Hubpages earnings. I'm saying so because there are many people whose adsense...
I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...
