Huh! Nope its not. Where did you spot them?
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?
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? 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.
NOTE THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER.
If I get you right jacharless, Chitika ads in this regard cannot be displayed on hubpages i.e as an affiliate of chitika?
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?
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.
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
Chikita are pretty famous for being useless from what I have read in the past.
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

Yesterday I noticed NONE of my hubs have AdSense ads on them any longer... where the ads were there is only a white block of space. I still have an active AdSense account, none of my hubs are flagged that the ads are disabled, they are all set to "high". I completed the pin process...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...

Does HubPages put Web Cake ads in our hubs?This morning when I logged on I noticed that something called Web Cake ads are now in my hubs. I had never noticed them before. They are marked with a double underline in links and also pop up on the screen.

This is disconcerting: I've diligently tracked all Adsense revenues from my hubs for a year averaging roughly > forty five cents a click.In the past couple of months (since the new Hubpages ads option has become available, which I personally don't use) my adsense clicks average a lousy ten...
