Chitika lynx was such a failure in terms of payment, compared to Kontera and Infolinks that they have stopped their program.
But now since a few months they're trying to get back into the market..
So they announced that from today until 31st January 2013 they'll double your monthly earnings from chitika linx. But up to $100. So that means if you earn $80 they'll pay you $160 but if you earn $130 they'll pay you $230 not $260.
They double, OK, but what is their CPC nowadays? If it's still $0.01 and they pay $0.02 until 31st january, then why should we care about them and not simply continue to use infolinks or kontera?
Chitika, even their normal ads, I really don't know how they can manage to pay so low per click.. I'm sure the advertisers pay them normal money like $0.1 per click and more depending on the competition, so why do they give publishers such low rates? Greedyness only? That's their only explanation?
Even if infolinks and kontera pay low rates compared to adsense (it's not the same format and doesn't take as much screen real estate, I know) they are always performing better than Chitika Lynx in the past..
So do you think today Chitika Lynx will be paying more than Infolinks? Is it worth a try to replace infolinks code with chitika lynx at least until 31st January?
If you currently earn less than $100 per month with infolinks then yes it's worth a shot with chitika, otherwise, don't bother. What do you think?
