Kontera: Hubpages Original Con-Textual Revenue Solution

Updated on July 29, 2017

What is that weird little advertiser called…COnTeerrra? Am I even saying that right? Kon-ter-a, maybe its Ko-nter-a? Well that’s not important, the good thing about being on a computer is that you don’t need to pronounce it, just spell it right and hope for the best. Anyway-you’re here to learn about Kontera. What it is, how it will make you money, and why use it. It really can bring in cash, lets see if I can’t educate you a little about Kontera!

Warning: I can not teach you how to say it if you don’t know, sorry but that I can’t do because I don’t know if I am saying it right =).

What is Kontera?

Kontera is the leading advertiser of in-context ads. There ads are PPC just like ad sense and many others. But Kontera is different. Kontera’s ads are in-text ads that make a pop up window with the advertising content by rolling your mouse over it. They introduce a new way of advertising.

Kontera’s advanced system on in-text pay per click ads guarantee the highest degree of relevancy between content, keywords, and ads! There system is called ContentLink. What can ContentLink do for us? Let’s see:

How will Kontera earn us money?

Kontera is like ad sense, they use PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising. If a user clicks the ad you get a commission from referring them to that site. A simple way of looking at this is Google Ad Sense in Text ads, and the company is Kontera and not Google.

(Note: Hubpages Team conducted a test and the results is 10-20% in revenue increase!)

The inside workings of Kontera, How there technology works!

· Extraction: A typical analysis process begins by extracting all the relevant page content and attributes, including: text, HTML properties, location on page, URL, Title, Meta tags, custom Meta tags, etc. Every such attribute conveys a specific weight to the algorithms that analyzes the data.

· Discovery: The extracted data is then scanned through the discovery process in relationship to the proprietary taxonomy and via a dynamic part-of-speech analysis to identify keyword relationships and significance.

· Classification: The page and its best matching keywords are classified with their best matching topics, and both keywords and topics are scored for relevancy.

· Ranking: The resulting output of keywords and topics are then ranked, based not only on keyword and topic relevancy but on other parameters as well. These parameters include: topic and keyword conversion rate and click-through rate, advertisement CTR, advertisement conversion and revenue potential.

· Self-Learning Optimization: The self-learning and tuning module automatically performs yield management and optimization. This process is based on real-time analysis of user reactions to specific keywords, topics, and ads as they relate to specific web pages and topics. In Text Ad impressions are then re-distributed in order to assign more impressions to the keywords that are performing better. This self-learning stage completes the cycle of Kontera´s contextual advertising technology granting it its unique

Questions & Answers:

Q. Did you see whether there is a threshold earnings level at which you have to reach before payout (like Google)? -asked by New Day. A. Yes, there is a set limit of earning $100 before a payout for that month. If you have a Question I will do my best to get an answer and I will also add it to this section. To ask me simply leave a comment or contact me here. (Make sure you read it right and include the . and _)

Now you know what Kontera is, How do you sign up?

Kontera In-Text Ads

Thank You for reading my Hub!

Just as an ending note, many people have had problems with Kontera. Personally, I think it should only be used as a fill-in for Google Adsense, if you can't put adsense on a page OR if you can't get an adsense account. I leave Kontera on one Hub so I keep the account open, but a company that has the right to keep your profits if there under $5 a month really isn't that great.

I appercaite all comments! Please tell me what your thinking or if you like\dislike the Hub!

Check out my other Hubs HERE!

Kontera as a company is closed.

This page is still here as a reminder of what was once an opportunity for earning on Hubpages. The company itself failed and got bought out by a new company. Hubpages haven't used this ad platform for many, many years.

      Where is my affiliate code and which URL should I use?

      I'm not even sure what URL they want. Is this for each individual hub page or is this my profile page—or what?

      It took me two years to find this wonderful hub, richly written and well researched. But if I may ask "are you a staff of Kontera?"(lol). You did great justice to this topic I really enjoyed reading. Hope to get more of this kind of info soon.

      Normally my links are completely unrelated to the content. Additionally, the pay rate is so abysmal it's barely worth having (even with a $100 payout, it could be years before you see a penny)..

      I guess it doesn't hurt to add it to everything, but it definitely doesn't help either!

      Thank you for the informative hub! Call me stupid! I am still learning. I have signed up for Kontera but I have not earned anything. I understand the fact that you have to earn $100 or more a month before they pay you. I have nothing. Don't know if there is something else I have to do or what! I wish this is less complicated!

      Yes, Kontera! Using it as an additional way to earn revenue is unbelievable. I joined a couple of weeks ago, placed the code on all of my Blogs and Websites and submitted the proper info in my Affiliate Settings here at Hubpages. I love it and have already earned a few dollars. I'm sorry it took me so long to try it out.

      If your here to learn about Kontera I have another excellent pay-per-click network and it's free to join AND you can use it with Adsense and Kontera. Visit my profile to find a link to Chitika. I joined a few days ago and it's another excellent freebie. Thanks for the Hub, you explain Kontera perfect.

      No, you do not need to pay them anything unless YOUR the advertiser.

      9 years ago from Frederick Maryland

      Thanks for the lowdown on Konterra, you don't see many well thought out explanations of what it is and why one would want to include it. Previous to finding your hub the only info I found was a rather lukewarm sort of "it doesn't pay much but it pays something" website I found on Google.

      I'm no stranger to websites but my hub experience is relatively short. I learned a couple of useful things from your hub that I'm incorporating on my hubs:

      1) You had the foresight to add a "Thank you for reading my Hub". I'd not thought of giving thanks to people who took the time to read my stuff... now I feel as if I was pretentious without being thoughtfull enough to include such a small but appropriate ending to a web offering.

      You thought of it before me, but imitataion is the sincerest form of flattery and I'm imitating your ending from now on.

      2) You created an external website to list your hubs.

      Now why didn't I think of that one as well?

      I'm in the search engine optimization business and I missed that opportunity... more flattery by way of imitation in the pipeline.

      I'm your Hub fan now:o)

      Are you on facebook as well?

      Is it true that if you make les than $5 in a month, Kontera has the right to keep that money? I think that is how I understood it when I read their terms.

      Hi Thranax,

      Thanks for the info. Well I have not seen many or any kontera enabled hubs. This led me to investigate at the forum. I subsequently disabled kontera from my sites, as I had the impression that the pop ups caused by mouse-over may annoy viewers.

      Would you advise me to enable it once again? cheers :)

      I'm currently testing out Kontera on one of my blogs and just like you... I still have no idea how to pronounce it LOL... I probably will eventually incorporate it here on my hubpages too. However, I want to use the monetization options provided here at HubPages tastefully - not just stuff everything in at once i.e. Adsense, Kontera, Amazon, Ebay, etc.... I think hubs will start to look wayyy too commercial & cluttered then.
