Chitika Has Proven That Their Ads Truly Work

I remember the time I got my first check from Google for my Adsense account, man I was so thrilled, it was just like the time I got my first paycheck. Even though it took over a year it was still a milestone in my blogging career as it proved that it was possible to blog for money and it gave me the incentive I needed to expand and improve my blogs.

The thing is that I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket as I could see it was bad business sense to rely on just one source of income revenue. So, the search began to find out what other ways existed to add to my Adsense income. I came across Chitika only a month ago but it wasn’t until today that I realized just how good it really was. What made today so special? Not much, just the email I got from PayPal that confirmed that Chitika had made a deposit into my account. In just one month. Unlike Google Adsense where you need to accumulate $100 before a payment is made, you only need to rack up $10 to have it deposited into your account, which occurs monthly.

Chitika is very configurable so that it can easily fit in with your blog theme, and they have a whole range of ads you can use including the NEW Chitika | Premium – PPC Ad Units. This particular ad is really special as it behaviorally targets to your search engine traffic which means that the chance of getting clicks is increased dramatically. What is really unique about this ad is that if your visitors come to your blog via means other than a search engine, they do not see the ad at all, that and it is only targeted towards US traffic. I have a 728×90 banner in my header but I don’t see it because I’m an Aussie.

The beauty about displaying a second set of ads is that you dramatically increase your blog’s earning capacity. There may be times when there is nothing interesting being displayed by Google Adsense but something from Chitika catches their eye. Chitika even has a WordPress plugin that enables you to place an ad right in your post whenever you want. Once a member you can also recruit others and get 10% of their earnings as well, and what makes it really special is that it’s free which are pretty well the only sort of schemes that I promote.

  1. well. so far, chitika had only proved that they can mess with my blog design… lol

    i tried them this weekend with their chitika pro, but since i don’t live in the usa i can’t see if it fits well on my blog, but then i got an email saying that my blog was messed up… immediately took them away… :s sadly…

  2. That is indeed strange Hugo, as I have it installed on all my blogs without any problem. If you don’t happen to live in the USA they supply a code so you can test the ad to make sure it is working. Try typing #chitikatest after the url of this blog to see what I mean. You may have to refresh the page.

        1. Yeah, I know the feeling when things should work and they don’t and all you want to do is bang your head against the wall. Sometimes it is something so simple that you don’t even think that could be the problem. I’m glad you got it all worked out.

  3. Chitika didn’t work well for me before. Maybe I should give it another try and see if I pull in some revenue. :)

    1. that is exactly what i thought. doesn’t hurt much to give them a new try….

  4. Lucass, I would certainly give it another go if I were you. What could it hurt? Even if it brought in 50% of your Google Adsense, that’s 50% more than if you didn’t have it.

  5. Hi Sire,
    I actually joined recently but didn’t quite understand how it works and so did not put the codes in my blog. Thanks for sharing this information. Anything that is going to make me money interests me so I’m going to get it on my blog tonight.

  6. No worries Peter, we should all strive to provide information that can help us all retire that little bit earlier.

  7. Hi Sire,

    Thanks for reminding me about Chitika. I signed up with them shortly after they first launched, but I was totally unsatisfied with the results.

    That was maybe two years – or more – ago, so maybe it’s time to take another look.

    I’m not as interested in it for my blogs as I am for a couple of my large websites.

    I’m off to see if I still have an account there.

    Act on your dream!

  8. Hey John, long time no see. I reckon it’s good to be reminded every now and again, just so its not as much as my wife likes to remind me of things.

  9. Hi Sire,

    I finally put the codes into my blog. BTW I haven’t read much about it but are we able to monitor the no. of clicks we get on our site?

  10. Yes you can Peter. Each ad you use can have its own channel so that you can keep track of them separately.
