    I just noticed them today.  Is that part of the HP program?

        I saw them too. Funny thing is, the link options below the ads says chitika and opt out. I was angry because I did not 'opt in' in the first place, plus getting banned from adsense still hurts.
        I have gone over to chitika to apply with my hubpages url. I hope I have not gone too fast?

      The Chitika ads you all are seeing are in fact part of the Ad Program. We're conducting a two-week test to see how the Chitika ads perform compared to the Google custom javascript ads normally running above the share bar.

      Thanks for the feedback!

          Hi Pepples, it would have been nice to inform the community before so we are aware. Just saying......

            I think that was addressed to me? smile We typically don't make an announcement before ad tests. For long-term and/or permanent changes, we'll be sure to post one.

    The Chitika Ads are from the AdChoices Pool, also known as the DoubleClick Partner Network, of which Chitika is apart of, as well as HubPages. Looks like one of their search ads was put into rotation.

      If I get you right jacharless, Chitika ads in this regard cannot be displayed on hubpages i.e as an affiliate of chitika?

      1. jacharless profile image79
        jacharlessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Correct.
        Unless HubPages partners with Chitika, are unable to offer "stand alone" Chitika ad placements. Honestly, it would not make sense for HP to do so, as they are already a DoubleClick Partner.

          Thanks. Then it is more likely that my application to chitika using hubpages url will not go through, right?

            Don't think so. Try resubmitting the URL (domain) using your private site or Blogger site.

    Hmm. Might have to retract my statement, earlier.
    Seems every hub I read today has a Chitika/AdChoice Related Search Ad, just above the commentary/rating area. Odd.

  4. peeples profile image95

    I seem to have them on all of my hubs today.

    DigbyAdamsposted 6 years ago

    I've got them on most of my hubs as well - and I'm seeing them when I read other Hubber's Hubs. I think they look great. The ones I'm seeing are targeted to the topic and flow into the content well.

    Well, if Chitika is being implemented as an AdSense-HubAd alternative, then this is awesome! If not, phoo-ee.

    Does anyone know what's up with this?

  8. melbel profile image95
    melbelposted 6 years ago

    I think it's a good move. I never did well in Chitika because I didn't have the traffic volume, but HubPages definitely does. If this is a part of HubAds, it could potentially drive up earnings.

    Anyone seeing an increase in CPMs?

      I do have it a bit higher these past 2 - 3 days. I doubt its because of these ads

    2. TheMagician profile image88
      TheMagicianposted 6 years ago

      So wait -- do we need to be signed up for Chitika for them to show up? I'm a bit confused on where users play in this.

      DigbyAdamsposted 6 years ago

      It looks like this is just part of the HPads program, so we don't have to be signed up. At least I hope so. Don't you think the Hubpages staff would have let us know if there was a change?

    4. jacharless profile image79
      jacharlessposted 6 years ago

      There's been no formal announcement, that I am aware of.
      So it might be either a test-phase apart of the HubAd (DoubleClick affiliation) or independent. I can only hope it is the later, as Google cut me off nearly days after joining HubPages. And the requirement to have Google account to qualify for HubAds, has rendered revenue on my hubs null-void. Which is the reason I deleted 100 hubs and changed accounts.

      James.

      Was Chitika an ad program we had on Hubs in the past and it was removed as it was not working well for HubPages or the writers here? Or was that another type of ad.
      I know there was an alternative to Adsense when I joined, but I cannot remember its name. It was one that I never signed up for but I think it put links into your text.

        It was Konterra not chitka

      Chikita are pretty famous for being useless from what I have read in the past.

    7. weezyschannel profile image89
      weezyschannelposted 6 years ago

      Well, I'm for it if it is used part of the ad program. I hope they continue to use adsense along with the Chitika.  Only once in a while do I do anything from adsense. I make more on the the Hubpages ad program.  I wonder if they change the placement of adsense ads if that would help us? I kind of wish we could place our own adsense where we would like it. I think that would help. Just a comment smile
