    I don't have ANY experience with Kontera, as I have always simply used Adsense. I have been considering using Kontera WITH Adsense on my hubs but figured I would wait to make sure I can pass the monthly minimum.

    I was wondering what experiences others have had with Kontera. Does it go well with Adsens ? earn better or worse for you with adsense ? Worth using in your opinion ?

    I get anywhere from 150-300 daily views to my hubs currently if that helps anyone suggest to me whether it would be worthwhile to start now or if I should wait.

    I had Kontera up on my hubs for a while.  Couldn't get past the monthly threshold even though I had a lot of clicks.  Didn't like the way they made my hubs look either with the underlining and pop ups if the cursor went anywhere near them.

    Decided to get rid of Kontera all together and think I am the better for it. Just my experience, some others may have had better luck.

    If you start using Kontera and then stop, and don't give them a 30 day notice, you violate their TOS.  So, be sure to read what you're signing up for.

    I'm doing fine with Kontera.  It hasn't had any effect on my AdSense, evidenced by the fact that my AdSense is way up from July 2008 when Kontera was first added to this site.  But I'm one of the few folks here who's got enough pageviews to make Kontera viable.

    Relache suggests having over 10,000 views... a day? A week? I can't remember. But check out her hubs, I think it's in the earning one.

    Unless you're pulling in enough ad impressions, and enough of those are being clicked, then if you're under the threshold that bgpappa has mentioned (which is $5) then you're not going to see any of that money.

      I suggest 10,000/week or more.

        I think it has more to do with the topics you write on. I get almost double that and it took me three months to get a payout.

        Every time I saw it on one of my hubs, there was non-appropriate advertising.

          There's only one program that I know of that is worse with non-appropriate ads, and that's Infolinks.

            I have never heard of them. I am not even slightly impressed with Kontera - it took me almost 200,000 page views to make $100.

            I suggest anyone who is think of using it takes a look at Relache's hubs and sees what she is writing about because she is the only person I know who reports a good success with them.

              I think part of my success is due to a few of my referrals too.  You know how your ad codes are shifted to their Hubs 10% of the time?  I sometimes see other users URLs in my Kontera reports.

              Kephira, if you can't manage to earn more than $5/month from Kontera, they just absorb your earnings.  But you putting it on other blogs may fix that for you.  I'm about to add Kontera to my personal website as a way of increasing my revenue stream from them.

    I wasn't getting any cent from it so I removed it a few days ago.

        Seriously Relache, What are they going to do to the people who remove them without the 30 days notice. Throw them out of the program? Sue them? Click on their google ads and get them thrown out? How do they enforce this?

        I've never signed up and probably never will (and I have the page impressions to warrant it). But Do they even notice when their ads are removed?

    Removing Kontera from my site was the best decision i ever took on HP. Within 24hrs of removal, i started earning from adsense. And i mean immediately. To get to their payout may have taken me years.

    I agree 10,000 page views per week then only you will earn some money from kontera. but adsense pay 10 times more then kontera.

    I've only just signed up for Kontera so I'll find out soon. So far I've only been getting 5-10 cents per day, but it's been less than a week yet so I'm going to give it a bit longer. I don't get even close to 10,000 view per week (I'm getting around 500 per day) so I hope I made the right decision. I did also add it to a couple of my blogs though. I'm hoping it'll work there cos so far they only have adsense in the sidebar, which doesn't do too well.

    I do okay with Kontera, but the one thing I really like about them is customer service.
    I've had Kontera go above and beyond to help me with issues and to me that means a lot.
    This is opposed to "some" companies that shall go nameless that you have to do a human sacrifice just to get their attention.

    When I'm surfing the net for information, and come across Kontera links on someone else's article, I find it incredibly annoying.

    So... I removed Kontera from all of my Hubs about a month or more ago.

    My Adsense revenue keeps going up, and seems to have really shot up since removing the Kontera. Whether the two are related, I have no idea... but I do know that when I go to someone's article with Kontera, I always click away and find another article to read.

    I suspect I'm not the only one who does this.

    I have been reading up in some SEO forums and they all say the same thing, that adsense makes more sense smile

    I got rid of Kontera ads on my stuff.  Nothing much was happening with them, and I didn't really like a lot of them.  I gave the notice, but about two days later I got an e.mail from them that said all was discontinued.  If they had it set up that you could just let earnings build up that would have been one thing.  I really couldn't see giving them (even very modest) ad clicks and having them wipe out whatever meager earnings there were each month.  I gave them about eight months and didn't see much of anything happening.  Maybe that wasn't their fault, but if the deal is to earn x from x clicks I'm not a big fan of "except if there's only x you don't get any earnings".  I didn't have their ads on my Hubs for my health.  mad  lol
