I'm seeing a lot of Chitika Advertisments appearing on Hubpages where Adsense usually appears.
But I can see no way to ad my Chitka account in the Affiliate interface?
Anyone know how to add Chitika?
I'm assuming those are used during HubPages impressions.
Maybe HP is using Chitka for now to measure the results to see if be good for us too? just a thought
Chitika has gone slightly down in my opinion, while it will be another revenue/income stream here if that's what Hubpages are testing, Chitika recently implemented a new stats system in which you only earn from impressions rather than the impressions and clicks that it used to be and many people have lost an income stream almost overnight...time will tell on this one, but you just might need to have the recommended Kontera traffic of 10,000 views or more to make any substantial income off it!
I am still earning off both clicks and impressions with Chitika, have you submitted sites to be part of their premium network, or whatever they call it now?
As usual I probably read it wrong...or they count clicks too, but do not show them in your stats.
Yeah I have 4 domains all in there and earnings dropped around a month ago, I now get loads of impressions but no earnings.
Tis a strange phenomenon....I might have to contact Chitika.
Update----- a few of my ad sections have been wiped from my blogs, am re adding the code and testing it and see if that will do it.
And yeah I was wrong they do count clicks, just they don't show them in your stats, only impressions...I'll get my coat!
Make sure your websites are all in the approved list, they don't need much to be classed as silver, I have a brand new blogger site classed as such, but the earnings increase is pretty decent.
LOL... I couldnt help chuckle over Waynet's evolving comments! You made my day!
I think that's great, not putting all your eggs in one basket makes sense.
Although it does make it easier to keep track of the eggs....
It would be nice if we have more options, I live in fear of AdSense being taken away. Happily yieldbuild seems a good system for diversifying away from AdSense.
Wow..you must have not noticed the Chitika debacle when a lot of publishers were calling for their blood.
Overnight they removed all the ads from my blogs because suddenly I didnt have enough traffic for them.
They said they would evaluate and re-instate the ads on the blogs that were basically "worthy".
Go over to their blog section (the forum conveniently vanished right before their great "cleansing") and look at the comments from publishers.
After a great deal of noise, they FINALLY approved my Blogs for Chitika ads, but by then I was so put out I told them to take a hike and took all the Chitika ads off my blogs.
I still have my account there, but it would take something major to get me to ever use them again.
Thanks... I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
I've been using Chitika along side Adsense for years on a site with appx. 250K impressions per month. I have experimented several times with letting it run in place of Adsense, but it never did as well. For me, it simply provides a way to put in another ad that will be different from the Adsense fills.
Some people say they do very well with Chitika. My results weren't that great. I think it comes down to available inventory - Google simply has more.
That doesn't at all imply that it couldn't do well here. Obviously Chitika would love to have a big catch like HubPages in their stable, so I would bet that they are sparing no effort to help that success happen.
Wow, Chitika hooking up with a website like Hubpages would be a great idea. Have you suggested it to them? I'm going to sign into my account to make that suggestion. Great thinking friend.
Um, no, I did not.
Why would I? As I said, I don't think they are always as good as Adsense. They might be useful as an additional source, which is what I use them for, or they might do well on a specific website, but I don't think they have the inventory to compete with Google on a large scale.
That's what I think. If HP is trying them out, HP might think something different.
Like I said before, just go to the Chitika blog and look at the publisher comments.
You'll see how happy everyone is with them.
Cut backs, cut backs everywhere! All businesses are shaving thems down to the core making it harder to make a living. This is a sad example of our times.
I can see it coming... first ebay's non approval of non applicants to hp, then amazon's short life cookie and now Chikita... it is like a disease eating away at the core. And who are at the core? Yes, the slaves! Us!

Chitika has been an integrated option with YieldBuild for quite awhile -
When I started at HP, I often wondered why Chitika was not already integrated into HP proper, if shetoldme can pull of impression share with Chitika I dont see why it didnt already happen here.
You will see a lot of threads requesting Chitika here at HP.
But now I would be less supportive, many of the chitika ads are very attractive product listings - I rather get the commission on the actual item then .08-.20 cents per click which seems to be the chitika average.
I guess it would be a plus for those who havent taken the basic steps it takes to be accepted into ePn (1. start a website, 2. Apply)

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...

For the last 24 hours I have not had any adsense impressions from HubPages at all....which is very weird.Either something's wrong with my adsense/hubpages linking or I have only been getting hubpages ad program impressions (can't tell yet as it hasn't updated). Any ideas?

Hi Guys, I have another account with a few hubs and it earned me $0.01 for some of the days without any clicks at all! How did this happen?
