I had the best 2 days on google for my home affordable hub, great traffic from Google then ramped down after 2 days. I checked my Kontera account and noticed their was a high rate of click through for the same hub, at of course a lower rate than adsense would bring.
So I disabled my Kontera ads on that hub to see what happens in the next couple days.
Anyone else do this and what do you think about the whole Kontera thing? Is is taking away from Adsense?
Yes, even i tried this. Kontera, to me, looks like a FRAUD. Few months back my Kontera Earnings was around $95 or 97. Next day It went down to around $57. DAMN ! .
I disabled Kontera Ads on all of by blogs, hubs and websites and my Adsense income increased by almost 300%. .
I am NEVER going to use Kontera Again.
I wouldn't say that Kontera is fraud or are fraudulent. I certainly don't like the practise of losing your money if you're under $5 a month.
But Relache reports excellent earnings.
And my experience has been woeful.
I've now removed Kontera also, mainly because they were providing irrelevant ads
I had Kotera on some of my blogs, but made no money out of it, while i did make some for Adsense, so................i DISABLED IT!
Yes I have now removed Kontera on most of my hubs - well the ones that get any traffic anyway!
Kontera is probably taking away from Adsense earnings. I've removed mine due to this thread.
I took Kontera off last week sometime, and my HP Adsense earnings have gone from about $15-$18(and change) a day to $20-$23(and change) a day.
But, it's only been a few days. Not enough to see if there's been a stable, long-term change or difference.
It did take a few days to get the bump in earnings after I disabled everything, so I'm not sure if it's just coincidence or what.
I noticed this too. Google is creating contextual ads; do you think that they'll be relevant to the topic versus highlight a random keyword that has nothing to do with the article?
Thank you for the posts everyone, I have not started Kontera because I am new and not enough traffic, but after reading all these posts, I know not to go with Kontera. Thank you for warning all us newbies.
I actually like having kontera on my hubs because I like the extra income to my paypal account each month. Sorry to hear its not working for most folks, its working fine for me.
Dorsi, I'm curious as to whether you've seen any changes in the past two weeks after taking Kontera off?
I have decided that when I took off Kontera, my Adsense has increased. A day or so after I took it off, my Adsense went up, which could have been coincidence, but it's been stable for the past few weeks.
Just curious if you have seen a difference.

So I've been a Hubpage and Squidoo writer for the past 5 years. Recently, my 185 Squidoo hubs were transferred over to Hubpages and to start earning money, I applied for the Google adsense program about 2 weeks ago. It appears that my account was approved for a couple days and then I...

I have noted a huge drop in Google Adsense earnings starting from today. Traffic has been way up. However, no clicks, CTR zero, and CPC nil. Is the HP Exchange Bidding Dynamic Allocation (EBDA) responsible for this glitch or is it Google Adsense bug?

Admittedly I don't earn much with the Hubpages Earnings Program - I earn less than a dollar a day. However I noticed since the beginning of this month there was a been a significant drop in my earns per day, they are less than half of what I'm used to getting.It's a little worrying as I already do...

Now that I achieve about 12000 page views per day, I felt it a good idea to give Kontera a whirl to see how I got on. Afterall, I have heard that people can achieve $5+ per 10000 page views.It was a complete failure, although my primary concern was the effect on my AdSense income. I enabled Kontera...

I switched off HP Ads one week before the end of April (I was going to wait till the end of April, but had to go away for a few days so did it early).I've now compared the first three weeks of April (with HP Ads switched on) to the first three weeks of May, (with them switched off).I can now say,...
