Remember Chitika? Â The first “other” place to make money other than with Google AdSense?
Well, recently I have been seeing a lot about them popping up on forums and in blogs.
The most recent thing that came to my attention was from Domenic the owner of Mommysavesbig.com. Â He switched over to Chitika ads in early 2012.
Before he switched to Chitika he was using Google AdSense ONLY. Â After adding Chitika and a bit of optimization, he says his revenue increased “well over 30%”.
Domenic says one of the big reasons to his success was adding in the extra add unit:
Many people choose to have 3 AdSense ads on their websites, but if you take out one or two and replace it with a Chitika ad, it creates competition, which is a good thing. Â My AdSense revenue remained the same and I was able to earn extra income with my Chitika ads.
Domenic also gave some shout outs to their customer support peeps at Chitika:
Having an account manager is amazingâ€¦ itâ€™s like having your own team working for you. Â They optimize your Chitika ads until you reach the maximum payout without having to deal with the headache that comes with tweaking and testing your ads.
Since I sold off most of my content sites I have not been using Chitika.
But recently I saw a HUGE uptick from people I had referred to Chitika:
The balance is all from referrals! Â That rocks!! Â Now normally this is only like $1,500 a month so its a nice jump. Â Nothing like free money 😉
If you have a content site I strongly recommend you give Chitika a shot.
As for ad units they have as many different types as anyone:
For those of you who are current Chitika publishers please comment below if you are seeing a uptick on your websites.
