Kontera is Gone

It has been about 135 days since I put Kontera ContentLink™ in-text ads on my blog. Within this time period I have been comparing the revenue generated from it to Adsense.

Over the first half of the trial period earnings between the two were just about on par with Adsense coming out on top. Since then, there has been a very big drop in Kontera earnings. I can’t even begin to imagine how long it would take to reach the US$100 pay out minimum.

I have noticed an increase in the number of bloggers who say they do not like Kontera at all. Some go to the extent of not bothering to read blogs that displays these ads. I may be starting to see more bloggers say they don’t like it as I am reading through more and more blogs as days go by.

Bottom line is, Kontera is not for me and it is gone!

    I was using Kontera and now using AdBrite. I don’t get a lot of clicks. I am thinking to drop the ad too!

    I don’t have AdSense, since I was banned for long time.

    Good to know that I am not along on this contentlink stuff.

    It just did not seem like something that was worth it for this blog.

    I’m am out here to share my experiences and not just provide information. Thanks for sharing your experience with in-text ads.

    Frankly personally I find them very obstructive. Accidentally you go over and it pops up and block the article. I might take it away if it doesn’t earn much for me.

    Hello,

    I’m from Kontera and Gerri, I’m sorry to hear this has been your experience using ContentLink.
    ContentLink ads provide our publishers with the opportunity to earn high revenue so long as they follow some basic guidelines. There are many ways to optimize the use of ads and control them. Some of these include determining the color of links and where to place them in a page.
    Once changes are implemented, ContentLink ads are non-intrusive and profitable.
    I hope you’ll give us another try,
    Contact us for further info at support@kontera.com

    I use both Adsense and Adbrite and i can say that adbrite is also a good source of income but not as good as adsense.’`,

    I used Kontera back in the 2002-2008 timeframe, and I think I got up to $12.00 in earnings, the clicks were only making .03 to .07 cents, just not worth it for the pain it causes readers.
