Chitika Earnings – Poll of the Week

Posted By Darren Rowse 19th of December 2005 Chitika eMiniMalls 0 Comments

The next Poll of the Week is up. This time we’re looking at Chitika’s eMiniMalls earnings with the question being:

In October, how much did you make from Chitika eMiniMalls after Auditing?

We’re looking at October earnings as November is yet to be audited and I’m only interested in the final figures. You can include all earnings including any affiliate earnings.

So basically I’m asking about your pay out figure for October. How much was your PayPal (or cheque) payment? Feel free to leave a comment on your response in comments below.

  1. Not too much, as I just started at the end of October. Things have picked up considerably since I began implementing it across many sites, but a recent drop this week has been discouraging. *sigh*

  2. just a bit more then 1$ :)

    think i need a lots of tips :)

  3. Despite following all the tips, doing what “should” work, I got a handful of clicks which all got audited out. Just not worth it at all. I now have it on my archive pages but nothing else. Could be my topic just doesn’t work…

    I will probably try it again with a different niched blog. For now, my scrapbooking blog will be Chitika free.

  4. yeah Kim – seems to be something that works very well on some blogs and not so well on others depending upon topic, positioning but also taffic origin.

  5. Do you mean it works well on YOUR blogs Darren? heh…. I don’t hear many other people saying their rolling in Chitika cash.

    My October stats were miserable, and audited more than half. Actually, I’d go and add up all of what I made in Oct and what was actually paid out, but Chitika doesn’t have an easy way of looking at that.

    Hopefully on this next payoout, it’s MUCH better due to the alternate ads and them now auditing out bad clicks live. —

    I love the Chitika system, but I think they’ve focused too much on pleasing the advertisers and not really giving too much care to the actual publishers giving their ads top spots and placements. I don’t know what the problem was with my account for October, but I can assure you the majority of ALL my traffic comes from the US, CAN and UK, and any clicks they get from my prime placements are total Quality clicks. I can understand if they take away repeat clicks and all, but it’s not matching up to how my other ad systems have performed. Like i said, hopefully it gets better– hopefully they’re listening to the quality publishers out here.

  6. Yirmumah – no – I mean it works well on some blogs and not others. When I look at how it performs on MY blogs it works well on some….and not others.

    If you look at the poll results so far you’ll see that there are a few others that seem to have good results too. The overwhelming vote so far is that people are not using it – but of those that are using it there are a handful who are a range of responses including a handful who are making decent money from it.
