Most webmasters and bloggers make money online by placing ‘targeted’ ads on their sites. The most common ads provider used is Google Adsense. Google Adsense displays ads relevant to the contents of posts/articles.
Those who generate traffic mainly from the search engines can earn more when visitors click on these ads which are matched with the search keywords they typed in search forms.
While Google Adsense is still one of the more reliable sources of website revenue, there are other programs that also offer similar opportunity, and one of those is Chitika | Premium.
Just like Google Adsense, Chitika | Premium is a CPC-based advertising program, which means you earn when somebody clicks the ads on your site. However, Chitika | Premium ads are only served to US and Canadian visitors.
Visitors of other countries will not see the ads, making your site neat and free from empty ad boxes. There are several ad sizes you can choose, and there’s even a plugin for WordPress blog users.
This snippet from Chitika | Premium says…
Chitika | Premium helps you make money by serving highly targeted, AdSense-compliant ads to your search engine traffic. Anyone who comes to your site via Google, Yahoo!, etc., will receive an unobtrusive text ad based on the keyword they used to find you.
The Chitika | Premium Referral Program
Chitika pays you 10% of what your referral earns for 15 months from the time your referral was approved into the Chitika program.
Chitika will pay you 30 days following the end of the month that your commissions are earned provided that your total revenue has exceeded $10 (for PayPal) and $50 (for check where PayPal is not available).
If you have a good traffic from US and Canada visitors, you’ll earn big with Chitika | Premium. If you do SEO on your posts and draw traffic from the places mentioned, putting a Chitika | Premium ads on your site/blog can increase your revenue than just relying on Google Adsense alone.
My Chitika | Premium performance in terms of average cost per click and eCPM is comparable and at times even higher than Google Adsense.
