What is a Kontera ad?

    I rather like those small blue Google ads, but I have never seen a Kontera ad and don't know whether I should sign up for them. Where could I see one?

      With only five Hubs, I'd have to say from my own experience, you shouldn't bother with them.  You really need a LOT of traffic to see decent earnings from them.

        I would have liked to see what they look like. Some ads are simply much too aggressive.

    You can only see the kontera ads on your hubs when you are NOT signed in to hubpages.

    A Kontera advert is an inline advert, so you will see a small block of highlighted text, when you mouse over this, a small box will pop up with an advertisement!

      I see. In other words, they are not ads of the kind that flitter and flimmer that make me wish I could spit back at them.

      If they are on the right hand side of the screen and large, they interfer with reading so much that I routinely open some Word doc and drag it there to cover them up. That helps.

      Hotmail (now Windows Live?) is the worst offender. Have been taking stepts to cancel them. Not easy, mind you.

      Thank you. I had read this page before, but forgot about it. I wasn't really interested in the policy,  but in the type of ads they publish. I think I have never seen a Kontera ad anywhere. Now I wil  look out for them.

    Personally I just like the additional few dollars I get each month from Kontera.  From my own experiments it doesnt adversly affect sales or adsense clicks, yet still brings in around $1 per thousand page views extra.

    While new users proabbly wont notice this, I have a true Yorkshireman's tight fist, and I do like to think that every penny counts!

    kontera is the type of ad that you do want to spit back at.

    apparently, if you log out and check out some of olis hubs you'll see the annoying little buggers.

    Hi Blue Parrot,

    My name is Jonathan and I'm the Community Manager at Kontera.

    Oli is correct, Kontera are In-Text ads that when you scroll over them with a mouse, a small unobtrusive box will pop up with an ad that related to your text. They're not the type of ad that's been driving you nuts, they only appear if when you point your mouse of a highlighted word.

    If you type "quaker Kontera case study" into Google you'll find an example of what our premium, high quality ads look like. Kontera is proud to feature exclusive, often Rich-Media ads from such globally recognized brands as Ford, Samsung, Intel, Dove, L'Oreal, Blackberry, Dominos, and Kmart.
