You get like what, a couple of cents per click?
what is the point. It sounds like you'd lose money overall if you were using adsense on your site or hub to begin with.
I think its a complete waste which not even a homeless person would bother using even if he could.
But people use it obviously, and it continues to exist. It makes your site and your hubs look like crap. I think Kontera is a sad joke.
You have a right to your own opinion. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I've personally done well with Kontera. I have it on my main HubPages account. On some days I make more with Kontera than the HubPages ad program when I had it on. I've since turned HP ads off.
Hubbers have always had the option to turn Kontera off, but HubPages has decided to cancel Kontera this June.
I'll keep Kontera on my own sites though. I usually make payout every two months. It will take a little longer now, that's all.
Kontera has been mostly (or completely) phased out as far as I know. Not many people on the site were using it, anyway.
I was getting some very minor income form it. But I removed it because I think it may interfere with Adsense's TOS. Adsense does not allow you to run other contextual ads on the same page as Adsense, and from what I can tell Kontera serves ads based on the content of your page. Since it might offend Adsense's TOS I removed Kontera just to be on the safe side.
Google Adsense is notorious for canceling user's accounts for minor reasons, no explanations, etc.
I wouldn't want to offend G.A. either. If you look at one of your google adverts in the wrong way with your own eyes, you could get banned for that.
I still don't see why Kontera is not a laughable joke since you get a couple of pennies per click. A homeless person would think that's a joke!

quotations, in regards to your question about Adsense TOS, it is totally acceptable by Adesense's TOS to use Kontera and Adsense on the same site. As long as the ads from a third party ad network such as Kontera, can't be confused for AdSense ads, and doesn’t interfere with Google ads, there’s no problem.
Here's the section where Google talks about using third party advertising platforms on a same site where you use AdSense: https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … swer=32849

I never used Kontera, I myself find it very annoying when I'm reading something and skim over something and an ad pops up
I did not activate Kontera for the reason that it is being phased out soon. I don't know what it looks like but even if you only get a coouple pennies a day that is better than nothing.
Just my opinion but every penny counts in the long run.

I received a notice about being charged to keep my Amazon affiliate program active if I have no sales in 90 days. I'm sure others share this issue. Since I agreed to use Amazon under Hubpages program ID, I do earn more commission but now I may be charged due to my own ID isn't producing income.Is...

Hi, I have activated my google AdSense account. Google AdSense is prompting me to activate auto ads option when I visit that page. Shall I do that? Does HubPages allow that and in what ways will that impact on my articles?

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google Adsense. The question is, do I have to do anything to add Google Adsense to my...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...
