Does anyone know when or if Hubpages will ever split Chitika revenue?

    Hello all,

    I've been tweaking my Hubs because a Hubber gave me a suggestion and while I was tweaking all of my Hubs I noticed Chitika ads on many of my Hubs.

    Does anyone know when or if Hubpages will ever split the Chitika revenue with it's members?

    I noticed where Adsense ads are usually placed there are Chitika ads instead.

    Thank you

    When you see a Chitika ad then you know it's a HubPages impression, not one of your own.  As far as we know, they are still testing those ads during their impression share to see how they perform.

    Hubpages is testing several different advertising programs on their share of impressions, like Relache wrote.  I'm sure staff will make an announcement if and when these other programs become available.

    Chitika has been part of YB for quite awhile - they must have enough testing by now..

    I think I saw a forum post that mentioned they (HP) take in consideration whether a network is friendly to smaller publishers before rolling it out as an option to all hubbers.

    Im a chitika publisher but I have lots of sites..and hundreds of affiliate partnerships..i remember when Chitika did all sorts of changes and basically stopped serving ads for a bit..

    maybe, a user who only writes on Hubpages wouldnt be eligible for a chitika account anymore?

    just conjecture..I thought they were an easy network to get into...

      Hi all,

      Thank you folks.  I would think they would test it out before they offer it to all Hubbers. 

      I am happy to hear they are testing Chitika because I do have a Chitika account.  I only earn pennies a month but over the last few months have noticed the pennies increasing.

      I remember when they stopped everything and I also remember I had to wait about six weeks for all of my Domains to be approved.

      Again, thanks everyone.  Have a great night.

      I've been waiting for over a month to get approved by Chitika. They said they are not reviewing new applications right now, as they're getting ready to upgrade something or roll something out. Supposedly they will contact us when whatever it is gets done. smile

        They were really easy to get into a year (maybe more...I cant remember when I joined) or so ago.
        But all that changed.

      I use Chitika also, not on hundreds of sites like you, but on all I have where it is appropriate. I like that they are search term-specific. That makes for good placement options with related content, and helps relieve the "What if Adsense..." nightmares.

        I also like the fact that Chitika ads are search term-specific.

        When I first joined Chitika I did not use it much.  It takes time for me to grasp and learn new things so occasionally I place a Chitika ad onto blogs.  Then one day I said to myself, why not ad a Chitika ad at the bottom of all my blogs.  I felt it could not hurt.  So I spared the two hours and did it one day.

        I don't sign into Chitika everyday like I do with Adsense.  About a month later after I added Chitika ads to the bottom of all my blogs which I created and wrote specifically for Adsense, Kontera and Infolinks, I wanted to check my revenue.  What do you know, I earned $0.37 for the month.

        Many of you are probably laughing but this is how I practice and grow.  Each week I create/write a new blog.  As of now I have 68 blogs created using blogger.  Over time I'll have many more and placing a Chitika ad at the bottom of each of them works for me.  There will be a day when I have hundreds of blogs and my Chitika revenue will increase.  All in due time.

          68 blogs?  I couldn't possibly think of enough stuff to write about on a regular basis to fill that many blogs LOL.

            Hi EmpressFelicity,

            Yes, 68 blogs as of to date.  I started using blogger about two years ago.

            I focus on creating Hubs and blogs.  On all of my blogs I have a Hubpage referral link on all of them too.  I place Hub links on my blogs and blog links on my Hubs when it fits.

            I feel Hubpages and blogger compliment each other.  I didn't plan it it just happened.  I truly enjoy these two free services the best.

    Like I said earlier (or maybe in another thread), I reversed my thoughts on HP adding Chitika.
    I hope they do now because it helps with the "All your eggs in one basket" thing.

    They are probably even easier to get in to now, a whole host of their publisers jumped ship when they changed to the new value based advertising system.
