I'm using Chitka. Does anyone have an opinion on which one is better. Can we change if we want to?

Hi Brenda,

AdSense is better - I recommend using Chitika only as a fallback in case your AdSense account got locked. You can try it yourself and switch between the two options any time you like.

Cheers,

Simon

I agree. I love the way the Chitika ads look. But Adsense converts wicked better.

Does anyone actually know of people who made a living via Chitika? 

I always get really despondent when I read threads like this, because I can't use Adsense through no fault of my own.

Thanks everyone. I've had a problem getting on adsense. It's a long story, but I'm going to give it another try.

Jo anything can convert. It's just a question of working with it long enough to figure out how. Chitika has been around for a long time. If someone wasn't making money with it, it wouldn't have lasted.

Thanks for the reassurance. I've been in the grip of low-level panic about this for a while, but this evening, I've really been getting disheartened. 

I've just been searching the internet for Chitika success stories, but all I keep seeing over and over again is 'if you haven't got Adsense, you might as well just give up'. Which isn't helpful.

However, I think that I have worked out how all of the algorithms for each site involved works. I think that it could be possible to make some money there, but a huge factor is time.  Chitika ONLY makes revenue from hits coming from search engines in specific countries. I just have to wait on my articles being out there long enough for them to rank well in SERPs.

One of those 'patience young padawan' moments.

Jo, I hope the U.S. is one of those countries. I just signed up for a new adsense account. There was a glitch with my previous adsense account.

I actually know a lot more people making consistent money using Amazon these days than Adsense

Jo don't give up hope. I wouldn't waste too much time looking for success stories - one way or another. I never know who to believe any more - unless you see someone's 1099, you never know what's real. If Chitika has a forum you could start there. I've actually been thinking about trying to make it work on some Wizzles. It's good not to be so dependent on Google.

Hey warriorprincess, yes you can. Simply enter you Chitika ID in your Wizzley settings. That's it.

And very very soon, you'll all be able to use eBay as well on Wizzley :-) Coming soon!

Simon, that's really great news.  But can you let us know how would that work.  I mean only members with existing epn account can use it or can we apply through our wizzley profile or would it pooling like at squidoo or hubpages?

Hang on, guys...we're still in the last phases of testing our exciting, new affiliate possibilities. However, there will be no "pooling" and everyone can participate. 'Nuff said for now. More soon!

VERY Tantalizing. Patience is not one of my virtues. But I'll try to behave.
