    I have been looking at Chitika for some time off and on but I don't know if it's any good. Has anyone used them or know if they are good?

    I don't want to waste my time if they are not worth the time and effort or not.

    Any good info will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have used Chitika in the past but it has been a couple of years. I tried them on a few blogs of mine, each in different niches, and they never produced results that were any good.

    After a several months I gave up on them and switched and just put Adsense on them and it performed much better.

    I am sure that Chitika works well for some people but they just didn't work well for me.

    I keep seeing things around that say that it is one of the top ones so I am wondering how accurate the information out there is. I saw some posts on other forums that said similar things to what you said. I wonder why there is such mixed information out there.

    I really don't know why that is Catherine. I have seen information similar myself. All I can speak on is my own personal experience with using them.

    It might be a lot of people basing their information on speculation instead of actual experiences with them. I see a lot of people that are doing that.

    You are probably not going to make as much from Chitika as you would with Adsense but many people use it before they get approved or started with Adsense because it is much easier to get approved by them.

    I have heard of some people making good amounts of cash from them but how and why I couldn't tell you. I just hear most people saying that it is not as good as Adsense for making money.

    I don't know much about this affiliate. Try signing up sometime ago but the support never got back to me.So wouldn't know their effectiveness.

    you could try Amazon,Kongo,Jumia etc.

    I heard that it can be a stepping stone on the way to using Adsense. I just didn't know if I should even bother.

    I have never heard of Kongo and Jumia. Are they affiliate networks or something like Chitika?

    It might be good to use it before you get Adsense just to kind of get a feel for that type of advertising. It can't hurt other than using time and not making money from it. At least you would learn something hopefully.

    If you consider my opinion, I will tell you chitika is bad. I have used chitika on my blogs and I never earned any money. When you have an account on Chitika, you are required to submit your site where chitika will put ads. Upon approval, chitika will place your site into auction amongsts its advertisers for ad placementns. Advertisers will consider the traffic and quality of the site before they decide to advertise on your site. If ads are places, you are ready to earn. It is a difficult process, yet earning is hard to come
