I Won $50 with on Chitika Referral Promo

I Won in a Referral Promo Competition
This post is how I made $50 just writing a review about Chitika ad network. When it comes to monetizing a website through a contextual advertising network, there are lots of ad networks that claim to be the best Adsense alternatives. They promise you that they pay faster and better than AdSense. Some even went to the extent of telling you that they'll drive traffic to your website/blog once you sign up with them as a publisher. (I'm writing from a personal experience here. Those days when I was still an online novice I used to believe them anyway!).

Personally, I signed up with lots of such "Make money quick ad networks", one of which is no more in existence, or better, is temporarily not available at the moment. (The few bucks I made just went like that). The ad network claims it pays better and faster than AdSense and yet it could not stay around up to a year, after its inception.

Well, enough of those bullshit AdSense alternatives. Let's talk about the real best AdSense alternative. Let's talk about Chitika ad network. As stated above, when it comes to monetizing a website with contextual ad programs, honestly there is no better AdSense alternative than Chitika. Why? You may ask.

I gave a detailed post about Chitika ad network services in my last post whose link is given above. Some of the features of this network that I like so much is their various ad types, i.e. the Lynx and Hoover ad types. Since I have activated these ad types, my Chitika revenue has greatly increased. In short, the performance is awesome, despite the low traffic I receive on my blogs most of the days.
