I don't believe Kontera is nearly as good as adsense. I have gained some clicks from kontera, but they do not give much revenue. Do you think people clicking on my kontera ads could potentially be hurting my adsense earnings to some extent? e.i. They click on them instead of google ads.
I think kontera has potential, but not nearly as much as adsense....
As someone with well over 100,000 hits a month: yes, it absolutely hurts my earnings. My earnings nearly doubled on Adsense after taking Kontera away, because so many readers were apparently distracted from my Adsense ads by it.
You'll find that many people think Kontera can hurt your adsense although a few people say that after a lot of testing it doesn't.
However the general consensus is that it takes about 100,000 in traffic a month for Kontera to be worthwhile.
Yes. Kontera wasn't worthwhile as far as I'm concerned, and I turned it off to find out if my Adsense earnings would improve, and they did. Pehaps it was coincidence. Whichever way, I don't believe it matters until you have the 100,000 in traffic.
I see you've reached 300 fans, WryLilt. Congratulations!
It wasn't coincidence. I had kontera turned on for a few months when i first started out many months ago.
Then i read in the forums somewhere that they didn't really add value to your earnings. And did infact affect adsense earnings in a way.
And the day i disabled Kontera, i earned my first revenue of £0.30p from adsense. I never activated it again since then.
I turned off Kontera too and have had record breaking months for Adsense since then.
I have seen only a very mild drop in earnings from Kontera after extensive testing.
I dont think it is true that you need 100,000 views to make Kontera worthwhile, you might as well say you need 50,000 views to make Adsense worthwhile.
You always have a certain number of earnings per views, the number of views does not dramatically change the overall percentage of earnings you make.
Even if you are getting a thousand visitors a day you could still earn enough for a large case of beer every month through Kontera.
Despite popular opinion against Kontera I dont think it is aparticularly bad advertising system. It has a low impact on Google Ads and it does not take up page space.
The only real downside in my opinion is that some visitors might not like the rather annoying pop out advertisement form.
I think it can hurt your readership. I won't read a page with Kontera on it unless I really, really need to.
i immediately exit a page with any in text ad service - this could have long reaching consequences if lots of readers feel this way.
as for the service in general - many high profile, well visited blogs and sites, tested the service and decided it was a dud.
I highly recommend against it. I tried it for a couple of months. Adsense went down. Removed it, and Adsense almost immediately returned to prior amounts. And the amount I earned from Kontera wasn't bad at first, but then it turned into pennies a click. I've had other problems with Kontera also, but won't get into them.

I'm curious how you guys are fairing with Kontera since it has been added to HP. Please include how many hubs you have Kontera ads on, as well. I think it'll create a better impression as to how well it has done on...

Hi all, we are aware that there's an issue with AdSense earnings right now and our engineers are looking into the details. It's not clear if the issue is on HP's end or if this is a problem with Google, but we should...

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the...

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...

I will admit right off the bat I don't think my comparative studies between having HP ads on versus off have been very scientific. However, I am NOT impressed with my earnings when I have HP ads on. What I...
