I signed up when I first joined HP and I've made a grand total of around $7. I'm thinking of dropping it because I personally hate when I'm reading something online and get those constant pop-ups when I skim over the text with my cursor and I'm thinking that perhaps my readers may get annoyed by it, too.
Any thoughts or advice?
I have had it two years and haven't earned a cent.
The pop ups are annoying also.
Thank you all for responding. I'm with you Earnest - I'm going to go remove it right now!
When I took Kontera off of my Hubs, my Adsense went up quite a bit. And I forget, but I remember someone here saying you have to reach the payout limit in a time-frame (something like a few months???) or you lose what you have accumulated.
Some have made money with it, but you have to have a lot of viewers from what I have heard from members here.
Okay, how do I remove it? Do I just erase my affiliate code under the affiliate settings page or am I missing something?
When I edit or make a hub I just don't tick the box that says "show Kontera ads".
Yeah, but I was hoping there was a way to disable it in all hubs at once so I don't have to go and do that to each individial hub!
Lily...you can go to Affiliate Settings and then to the bottom for Kontera Specifics and click the drop-down menu and you can "disable Kontera on all hubs."
That is what I have done for Hubpages, although I still have Kontera on another site.
Thanks! I knew I had seen that somewhere and just couldn't find it - even though it was right there! Ok, I've now disabled it on all my hubs. Should be interesting to see if it makes any difference...
@Relache - thanks for the input, that's good to hear it's doing good for you. I, however, am nowhere near that amount of page views (I wish!). Perhaps when I get to that point I'll turn it back on.
I run Kontera on all my Hubs and my AdSense is yet again reaching a new daily/monthly high.
However, from my own experience, if you don't get over 100,000 pageviews per month, it's not going to earn well for you.

I signed up for kontera, but when I try to post the link in the affiliate settings he says it must be a wrong id or something.Why is this not working?

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'm trying to implement Kontera ads on my hubs, but each time I paste the HTML code into the text box on my hub, Hub Pages said it needs to be cleaned up and then deletes it. Where do I put the HTML code? Or is...

I recently noticed that my tracking ID for amazon did not match the Amazon associates ID. I am not getting any traffic to my Amazon sales, and I have been told by people visiting my hubs that they are unable to buy from...
