    Do the Adsense clicks on average have a higher pay out than Kontera clicks? I'm new to HubPages but found that the Kontera adds in many cases don't relate to my content and are also very distracting. At this point I chose to remove Kontera from all my hubs but at the same time don't want to leave money on the table. I had the feeling that Kontera might be doing more bad than good.

      In my own experience with Hub Pages and Kontera v AdSense, the later pays higher per click. However, I have had days with more clicks on in-text ads (Kontera) than AdSense Ads.

      One advantage is the use of Yield Build by Hub Pages, which seems to increase the overall value of AdSense clicks . YB is not optimized for Kontera nor Vibrant Intelli-txt Ads.

      Also keep in mind you are splitting Kontera and AdSense with HP.
      Vibrant in-text ads can appear on pages, as well as, other advertisers that HP does not share revenue with users...

      Hi KJ,

      This is Jonathan from Kontera. It's possible, in many cases even likely, that you'll make more with AdSense but since Kontera and AdSense ads are displayed in different parts of a Hub, they don't cannibalize each other's clicks, and just add to your overall revenue.

      For me Kontera isn't working out for me, it pays way less than adsense!

    I don't use Kontera, so I can only relate what I've read here in the forums. I believe they pay less on average than AdSense clicks. Relache, our resident Kontera expert, says you really need to have substantial traffic (100k views/month) to make Kontera worth your while.

      I'd like to add to this that if you have a product hub I don't see the sense in having people click away with Kontera at all, sometimes I wonder about Adsense for these types of hubs as well, but with Amazon conversion rates at about 3-5% I'll keep Adsense for now.

      Obviously for how to hubs or non-product related hubs, Kontera and Adsense Ads are how you make your money so on those it makes sense to me.

    Yes, Kontera generally pays less per click than adsense, but you have to remember that Kontera is also not taking up ad space, it is not visable unless a user hovers over it, so advertisers do not get as much brand exposure.

    I make a nice bonus with Kontera each month, and you need to think of it like that, just another way to leverage earnings from a website.

      @ thisisoli - right, my only problem with it is when a user gets redirected using Kontera when they might have clicked on an Amazon ad instead.

        It can do, but in my experience the amount you earn from having different advertising options far outweighs cash lost to possible sales on Amazon. If visitors are looking to buy they will generally focus on amazon ads, if they are looking for info they will head towards Adsense.

        Hi Brandon,

        If your worried about users getting redirected, we have a script at Kontera to make sure that your Kontera ads open in a new window: http://kb.kontera.com/questions/94/How+ … +window%3F

    thanks everyone for your answers. It is helpful. I laughed when I read 100K views per month would make it worthwhile because I'm so far from that. I might experiment a bit and keep Kontera on one of the hubs and see what happens over the next month. Good stuff guys and gals...thanks again.

      It's all in percentages.  If you want to earn big bucks off Kontera you will need a lot of traffic.  However a little bonus is always good!

    Jonathan, i was thinking about adding site tags that you mentioned in another thread. Do i need to send email to support or you personally to add hubpages site tag to my account ? or it's already done via hubpages interface ?

      Hey Skyfire,

      If you are already a Kontera publisher, and want to add a new site, you do need to contact our Support at support@kontera.com or me, so we can give you a unique tag for it.

      If that's not the question you were asking, let me know and I'll try to answer that one too wink

        Sorry i was not clear with the question. Do i need to contact support to add tag for my account's operation inside hubpages domain ? I know that for my other sites i need to contact support for unique tag. I was just confused about my hubpages account and respective unique tag.

          Hi Skyfire,

          If you already have a Kontera account, but it's for a site off of HubPages, you have to contact Kontera Support to create a unique Kontera tag for your HubPages profile, which would really only be a unique site ID, since you don't need to use your entire Kontera tag to implement Kontera on HubPages.
