    Not once in the 6 months I've been here, has Kontera placed even one ad link on any of my hubs that is relevant to my content.
    If the word is "Spiritual" there is an ad link for "Brakes"

    Yet they don't allow you to influence it, as they state they have sophisticated technology that does it for us.

    Is everyone, anyone having this problem?

      Yes, it's the same with me.

    I find the words turned into ads on my personal web site, where the entire thing is coded in simple HTML, are more on-topic than what I see on my Hubs.

    But either way, I'm earning with my Kontera ads, so I'm not going to complain.

      I do earn well on Adsense even though it is still early days for me, but from Kontera ... I get a lot of clicks, but what I earn on them is hardly what I'd call in any way substantial. How much traffic would I need to make it so? I'd be very interested to know what I can expect from Kontera, and who better to ask than an experienced Hubber like you?

        I didn't start to see basic earnings from Kontera until my Hub traffic got to be over 100,000 pageviews per month.

          Thanks, Relache.
          Then I have some way to go ... at least 100 more Hubs or so I'd guess ... smile

    Hi Deborah,
              I have noticed you can only see the Kontera ads when you log out of hubpages and search for your hubs, I read somewhere its like a failsafe device to prevent you from accidently clicking on them. Hope this helps!!!

      Chef, Did you actually read Deborah's question?  Because your answer has nothing to do with what she asked...

    If the ads were relevant, I might earn something. But why would anyone who reads my hubs click on something for brakes?

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

          The way our contextual algorithm works is it scans and analyzes all of your website's content to extract its topic category, the subject matter of each individual page, and lastly determines which keywords to highlight. Because most ad networks can just scan for keywords, the fact that Kontera’s engine understands context easily makes it the most sophisticated In-Text ad network available.  

          Given that relevancy, the type of ads being displayed depends on what kind of content is on your hub, and how that matches up against the subject matters in our existing ad inventory.

          For instance in your “A Powerful Love Ritual” post, I can see that the word “eye” is being serviced with a premium, rich media ad for L'Oreal because makeup is a relevant subject matter. Or in the same post, the word “beautiful” features an ad for Kohl’s jewelry for similar reasons.

          Remember that the ads displayed vary based on many factors, among which are the content of the web page, traffic sources (depending on where your site visitors are located, each will receive different ads), current campaigns running, advertiser preferences and more. Kontera’s algorithm takes all of these factors into account to ensure we deliver you the most relevant and high-performing ads. We are always expanding our exclusive ad inventory and new campaigns are launched all the time, campaigns which just like L'oreal, I’m sure will be appearing on your relevant content.

          I hope that answer was of help to you, Deborah. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.

          -    Jonathan

    I have disconnected them from my hubs or am in the process of disconnecting them - they are of limited value to readers and I was only told the other day by a reader that the links have no relationship to hub content and are nothing more than an unnecessary distraction for serious readers.
