    not scam, but they treated their publishers in a very bad way. Most of their ads are from amazon. I removed them from all my websites (almost). Not worth to deal with them anymore.

    No. Definitely not a "scam".
    But when they started out, they used to give a good share of revenue. I feel that's been cut down a "lot" now.

    Chitika is certainly not a scam. But, the revenue shared by them is inadequate in my viewpoint.

    Not a Scam. Still now I am with Chitika Silver and the conversion is less than I expect. I am waiting for Gold approval and see what happen.

    They are crap, they treated me like shit, at some point they decided that they will put my site for review, without telling me, I had to realize that instead of making a few mere dollars for thousands of ad impressions I was making nothing for 3 weeks, contact them, and then instead of apologizing they told me to wait for their review process, but DIE CHITIKA, you can die like other poor customer service companies before you, you deserve it for treating people like that. I was not the only one, it was a wide process they decided suddenly and lot of people were not happy, they handled it the same way their earnings are : crappy.
    Of course I dumped them, my earnings were insignifiant anyway but you know, not having all your eggs in the same basket, so I was keeping them along with kontera, infolinks, etc.
    But honestly, I didn't appreciate what they did and especially how they did it, without telling me and after I contacted them just went along like if nothing happened.

    Usually every company does this, start out paying high, and get so many returns they have to lower it.

    Chitika is a huge company, not scam. Even Yahoo co-operates with them.

    But, they suck... I hardly make any revenue with my Social bookmarking site (sharingfeed.com)

    Any idéas?

    Chitikia is genuine but their payout share ratio needs to be increased.
