In this article I will discuss the advantages of monetizing your Blogger blog with Chitika, a pay-per-click advertising program. If you are unfamiliar with Chitika Premium ads then let me clear up this point right away. Chitika can be either an alternative to Google Adsense or used in conjunction with Google Adsense. Today I will be exploring the reasons why Blogger webmasters might add Chitika to their Blogger blog in addition to their existing Google Adsense ad units to create a multiple revenue stream.
How Much Can I Earn From Chitika
Chitika Referral Program
Earn money from referrals. For every Chitika publisher referral you’ll earn 10% of what your referrals earn. And you are eligible to earn commissions for each referral for 15 months following each referral’s approval date
Is Chitika Right for My Blog?
Chitika Premium Ads are suitable for Blogger blogs that already have existing Google Adsense or Adbrite ad units. There is no conflict because Chitika unlike Google Adsense only serves non-contextual ads. Chitika ad units don't resemble Google Adsense ad units either so it is easy to distinguish them.
Your Blog Needs to Be Receiving US Visitors
To get the best results with Chitika your Blogger blog needs to be receiving visitors from the US and Canada. You will need a significant amount of traffic from this region to make it worthwhile. The higher proportion of US traffic received the greater the number of Chitika ads that will be served on your blog.
Your non-US visitors will not see these ads at all unless the alternate URL feature is enabled. Chitika gives publishers the option to submit an alternative URL such as Google Adsense so that a selected Google Ad unit or similar will be displayed where there is no suitable Chitika ad unit to display. This will only work if you have 2 or less Google Adsense ad units operating at any one time. If you have three Google Adsense units already displaying the ad will not be served. One way to get round this issue is to set up an alternate URL for a linked ad unit. Remember that 3 Google Adsense linked ad units can be displayed on any one page.
Chitika Only Displays Ads to Visitors Arriving via Search EnginesChitika only displays Premium ads to organic traffic. That is visitors who arrive via search engines. To get the most out of Chitika, therefore, your blog needs to optimized for search engines. Chitika serves a vast array of ads to websites based on searched keywords and phrases. If your blog is about cars and a visitor arrives after entering a phrase in a search engine such as "new ford explorer" Chitika will serve an ad about the Ford Explorer.
