Ads question

  1. jellydonut25 profile image61
    jellydonut25posted 7 years ago

    So, my Google AdSense account has been deactivated...

    I'd like to disable the Google Ads but enable Kontera ads on all of my hubs.

    I was just wondering how to do this. If Google isn't going to pay me for the links people click on from my hubs, I'd rather they didn't make any money either...but I would still like to be able to make money through Amazon and Kontera.

    Hi jellydonut25!

    Let me be really frank here. Kontera is hard to get your clicks and each click is about 0.01.

    Was your adsense got deactivated by purpose or you just dislike adsense?

    If you wan to disable adsense, go to My Account, click on affiliation and take out the code. Done~

    If you still have Adsense, its no harm doing a little. You get a nice small amount every click but it also depends. At times I get about $1.xx per click and others might just be $0.01 for adsense.

    Try changing your tags and keywords as your main target is from Search Engines and not from Hubbers.

    JD--The AdSense ads will remain on your hubs, only you will not benefit from them. You can enable Kontera if you have an account with them. However, our resident Kontera expert, Relache, has advised that if you don't get 100k pageviews per month, you probably won't make much $$.

    IF you have affiliates set up, you get 60% of impressions and hubpages gets 40% of impressions.

    IF you don't have affiliates set up, hubpages will get 100% of impressions.

    I doubt you'll make much money with Kontera unless you end up as one of the top hubbers with a large amount of traffic. I get 700-900 views a day and make $1-$2 a month on Kontera.

    If there is any way to get back your adsense account, try it. Otherwise I'd advise you to start maximising your Amazon related content.

      700-900 man! I wish to have that too! Sorry hijacking topic.

      *back topic: I dont think it is worth it to put up on Kontera itself only..better get adsense if you have adsense account.

    Just for the record when I have Kontera enabled I often see clicks in the $0.10 - $0.30 range.

    I do realise that Kontera gets the most flack from people who have never used it, nor have they ever attempted to optimize it.

    While Kontera does not beat adsense in earnigns I really do not believe it hasa  huge adverse affect on Adsense earnings either, and I am currently in my 4th stage of testing to see just how much of an effect it really does have on my Hubs.

    Personally I enjoy seeing a small amount of money trickle in through Kontera.

    I do not think Kontera is good replacement for the Google Adsense ads though. In my opinion you should spend time on each hub and choose Amazon capsules which will create a sale rather than a click.

    Why did you get your Adsense disabled?

      Hey Oli,
      I have been trying Kontera on and off for the last few months and it appears that I get better adsense amount per click when I have it enabled. I turn it off and I swear my adsense goes down.
      Is that similar to your experience or am I just seeing things?
