Chitika Ad Network: Best Adsense Alternative [FAIR REVIEW]

CHITIKA Best Adsense Alternative

So let's first know what is chitika ?

Chitika is a CPC/CPM/CPA AdNetwork ! 

At Chitika, they show banner ads to users when and where they want to see them. It’s one of many things (targeted ads) that set us apart from the approximate competition listed below:
  • network of 350,000+ quality publishers
  • four billion strategically targeted ads served per month
  • Access to top tier advertising partners like Yahoo!, SuperMedia and HomeAdvisor
  • Proprietary targeting and optimization technology that leverages the power of programmatic buying to serve precisely the right ad, at the right time.

Here comes some kind of recommended paragraph to go through:

As a blogger or webmaster getting rightfully approved and publicizing Google ads on your website might not be a dime a dozen for everyone.
literally frequent of the new applications got rejected each day by Google Adsense because they don't find that glow and spark in your blog which they require.

An another terrifying situation may occur when google tagged you as a victim of breaching their terms and policies and your blog's synergy get's ruined permanently with Google as your account got banned by Google Adsense.

Fortunately, if you get to approve an application with Google Adsense by any means and you are not offending any of the google's policies you have to wait for a long span to get some dollars in your hands.Because you won't be able to redeem until there is a decent amount of 100$ in your account, additionally you have to wait a couple of months for the redemption of your first payment.

Making money with google is not a piece of cake.Your traffic's quality CTR percentage must be decent enough along with the quality of your content and  smart ad banners placements.

Google Adsense was always been an apple of my eyes, I had always got a deep enthusiasm to display google ads on my website.But, when i actually started using it I felt it is not easy to cut the mustard with google.I started searching for a good ad network with the following attributes in my mind:
  • It must be trusted.
  • It must have a minimum threshold amount and easy payment methods.
  • It must have a good support system.
  • It must have a delicate amount of advertisers with them.
  • The approval terms and other norms should be flexible.
  • Easy customization of ad banners.
I have tried a dozen of ad networks on my websites and examined the above-mentioned qualities deeply. I have tried Chitika  ad networks as well and found it working well with my blog.

Its very easy to get chitika account approval ;) compared to adsense, Adsense is kind of nightmare level difficulty to get qualified as a publisher for newbie bloggers :(

I have found that Chitika is generating more than any other concern ad networks and the ads were quite good and relevant.So I have decided to keep using Chitika.

I am using Chitika ads along with Google ads on my blog since a couple of months and I am quite satisfied with the revenue it is generating according to my traffic.

  4. Yes Bilal, its such an informative post really chitika perform well & its 100% legit and also we can approval easily.

  5. Google Adsense is the best revenue advertising program but I really don’t agree that it’s the best of all. Adsense has VERY strictly rules and may ban you even if you didn’t do anything to get that ban and the worst thing is, you cannot appeal (you can but you won’t get your account back).

    Infolinks- this is probably the worst advertising media, it has ONLY facebook ads and they are really untargeted that’s why I really don’t recommend this media, really bad.
    Adsense wins if you can have your account.
