Made my first dollar on Kontera today. But its only 3 cents a click(all of them). I hope they will display ads that pay more in future.
Thats great SunSeven. I'm waiting for my application to be approved still.
I just put it on, and so far have one click at $0.01 for an eCPM of 50c. Pass the champagne ...
I am planning to give it a few weeks, perhaps till the end of July, and then see whether the Kontera earnings are making me more than I lose in Adsense revenue by people clicking away from my Hubs via Kontera links.
Given that my Adsense eCPM was over $6, Kontera clicks had better be at least 95% people who otherwise wouldn't have clicked an Adsense ad - more than 5% cannibalisation and Kontera will get the boot.
Mind you, they may come up with better-paying clicks later on. We shall see ...
I have 3 cents so far. If I keep this up I will retire in about 200 thousand years.
Congrats, Sunseven you always seem to be at the top of the game.
Personally, I'm still waiting for my application to be processed.
Great Sun7. I'm still waiting for my application to be approved.
Congrats. I've got nearly a dollar, too! lol I agree, my average click is about 4 cents, which is pretty low. :-/ How do you see per click data? I couldn't find it yesterday when I was looking. All I could find was the URLs and the % of clicks coming from them.
Yea, that's what I'm doing. I'll probably give it more than a month, but I want to see if the Kontera earnings will decrease my Adsense too much, as I'm doing pretty good with Adsense lately, and I want to see if it'll be worth it... Basically, like you said, if the Kontera earnings will be more or less than what's lost with Adsense. So far I haven't noticed a change in my Adsense, but I also don't have Kontera on all of my hubs, but a good portion of them.
Thanks Sun Seven. Your Thread reminded me to check my Kontera Income.
Dtd: July 3, 2008
1. Net Imp: 159 2. Clicks: 5 3. CTR %: 3.14% 4. Revenues: $ 0.44
5. eCPM($): $ 2.77
What is Net Imp ? Is it Page Impression ?
Lol I didn't imply it yet and might not. I get at least $.05 a click on all ad sense things and thats better then 1-3 cents. Also guys remember, for this month only Mike the Kontera guy is offering all Hubbers 55% of the profits instead of 50%. So that 1-3 cents will be 5% less after this month
Man, Thanks for this info. I have activated Kontera on all my hubs, blogs and my site. I will have to think on this.
Which it's great to give it a try longer than one month to see if what you earn on Kontera will be more than what you potentiall lose on Adsense. I'm going to try the ads for at least 4-6 months to get it a fair shot. But for the past few days, I haven't noticed a drop in Adsense. Actually, I've had an increase in my adsense revenue.
I want to say that if you want to have fewer ads you can contact Kontera and have them decrease the number of ads.
I have made $ 0.09 on 30.06.2008 and
$ 0.08 on 01.07.2008 with 3 clicks each day..
Also it seems like less text links per article would be better. I personally want to drive people to my Hubs to share information, with of course the hope of earning some money for my time and efforts. However, too many ads may turn people off to HubPages. Anyone else have thoughts on that?

I am pretty new to hubpages, and I hear that a lot of people make money off of adsense and amazon, but I have heard almost nothing about Kontera. Is anyone using this or making any moeny from it? Is it worth my time?

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense...

What are folks opinions on Kontera these days?
by Whitney8 years ago
There have been many issues with Kontera, and after disabling the ads, my Adsense drastically increased. That's great, but when they refuse your money and take money from you, as well as tell you differing terms than...

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that...
