What is kontera?
Kontera is an in text ads network.
How do I join Kontera?
Edit: Kontera banned me because i had put up infolinks on my sites. However Kontera paid me the amount that was in my kontera account, so i do not have any anger on kontera. Sorry kontera, but infolinks pays 5 times the money that i earn from kontera. So guys go here an join infolinks and forget kontera!
Am not editing the rest of the blog entry, as kontera has paid me in the past and is pretty much ok as an in-text ads network. However infolinks is better than kontera in a lot of ways, including load times and cost per click.
How do I get started with kontera?
Once you get approved by kontera ads network, simply login to your kontera account and get your code. Put the codes in your website’s footer file and your kontera approved site will start displaying kontera ads.
Do kontera pays?
Yes, and here is proof, am making about $100 a month on kontera, it comes from a few sites of mine. Friends and visitors have asked me before that kontera pays or not, so here is the answer, it pays just like adsense, and even support paypal that adsense dosenot.
Why kontera pays so low?
Actually no, kontera don’t pay low, the payment depends on a lot of factors which have more to do with your website than kontera. Here are a few of my sites with September 08 kontera reports. It clearly shows that the ecpm and ctr fluctuates a lot. Based on my experience, here are a few reasons why kontera earnings can fluctuates. Quality of your
content, origin of visitors like search engines, social sites, regular visitors etc. place of visitors, like US visitors converts more. And all these things depends on publishers and not kontera, so stop blaming on kontera for low paying ads, and start working on your website.
Kontera as an adsense alternative:
Yes possibly, but I prefer kontera to be a supporter of adsense. Since kontera dosenot take up additional space in your website, so it can complement to your adsense in a big way. Keep the regular adsense ads on your site and along with it have kontera too and earn the extra dollar.
Dose kontera loads slow:
If you put the kontera code in the footer file of your website then the loading of kontera will not affect your overall site’s loading. Yes it takes time to load, but it loads at last when your entire site is already loaded.
Reasons why I like kontera:
1) Kontera give me the extra dollar, since the adsense income dosenot change when I add kontera on my sites.
2) Payments are made by paypal; so no more waiting for checks and paypal money helps me to further develop my sites, as I buy more content etc with that money. Payments by check option is also available in kontera.
3) Ads look good, visitors like it. It is not like the regular banners, kontera just makes some text or keyword on a page to a link by hiperlinking it. This way, so additional space of the website is required.
4) Support is good, pretty much timely.
In the coming months I will do more experiments on kontera and other ad networks, and make comparisons based on the results. Stay tuned and subscribe in my feeds to get regular updates from this blog.
