My experiment in Chitika Ads
For 3 years, I have been an Adsense Publisher, and over the time it is my main source of revenue in blogging. I try not to banned from Google Adsense, and I try to integrate my ads in a proper way. They have a lot of rules and I adhere to all of them to my knowledge. I have always liked Adsense and it works quite well for me.
Recently, just over a week ago, I found out my Adsense was inactive. I feel very disappointing, for several years of taking care of my Adsense now its all gone. I don't know what to do, I lost my £60 every cashout I've made on my blog. It was terrible because the reasons behind of being inactive is I really don't know about doing it.
Someone contacted me and told me I should try Chitika Ads. I have never done this before. It did look good, so I signed up and replaced my ads from Adsense in a few strategic locations in my blog to see how they would do. For me, they have not done well at all, sorry to say.
In my every post, Chitika puts local merchants and maps on the ads. All I see is their ads repeating the main keyphrase of the page, then placing the little maps and pictures. Chitika should be able to match the ads to the subject matter of my post. I assumed Chitika could do what Adsense does, but so far they are not able to perform in a similar way.
I am not quitting yet. Just saying my disappointing experience so far. I hope after several months it will improve? Not sure, but certainly hoping it will. Overall, Adsense works, and so far, chitika does not work very well.
In conslusion, I have not reached a decision yet, and I will continue to experiment with it and see if I can make it work. I hope one of you guys will help me decide and teach me how to improve my earnings in Chitika.
