    After sometime with adbrite and 6 months with kontera I've finally ditched both these low inventory and low paying companies.

    Just to show you how low paying kontera is check out both screenshots. The first one is from Aug 01 2008 - Aug 31 2008 using kontera, I made $29.62 with 160,013 impressions ($0.19 eCPM($)).

    From Oct 1, 2008 - Oct 26, 2008 using Infolinks I made $62.08 with 119,202 impressions and ($0.49eCPM($)).

    So as you can see I had less page impressions but made more than 2X the amount with infolinks and i still have 5 days to the end of October.

    below are screenshots from my account for proof. and just in case your wondering about the sites, Yes both are from the same exact site.

    Infolinks

    Who would I recommend? I would recommend people with forums and content sites/blogs to try it out.
    SEMrush
    Common answers to questions found on there website
    Publisher requirements? None
    "Infolinks has no minimum requirements for page views or visitors and no hidden commitments."

    Payments? Paypal and bank wire minimum $100.
    "Every month. In details, at the end of each monthly payment period, Infolinks calculates your earnings for that month and issues your payment within 30 days of the end of the payment period"

    If your considering trying infolinks be sure to sign-up now because there is a special higher % program going on for anyone signing up before 31st oct.

    I would happily appreciate anyone signing up to use the aff link in my sig :)

    cheers.

    InfoLinks (http://infolinks.com/) is going and big time to be one of the best in the market, gaining publishers trust. paying high and fair.

    kontera is a big joke, kontera sucks and big time. if you make less than 5$ per month with kontera they take your money, read kontera terms very good, and see what surprises are waiting for you there.

    kontera the very very very low payment, and the disrespect for publishers by thinking the own the market and they are the only one in the market was very wrong, and they pay for it now, unless they raise and start pay fair to publishers, come on 1 cent per click is a big rip off, i prefer to leave my pages ads free and not to let kontera rip me off with your 0.001$ per click.

    i used adbrite inline ads, and they are good, but after testing infolinks i decided to go with them. oh yeah :):)

    my clicks with infolinks is up to 1$ per click sometimes, the lowest click i have is 0.10$.

Thread) he make 1012$ with 32000 Views .. and CTR of 80%), oh WoW .. good for you and for him.

    my final advice is stick with whats better to your site :)

    very nice dude.
    its also depending on your niche and the traffic, i am going to write my review about infolinks soon.

    kontera SUCKS and everybody knows it, there is always better alternative, and so far infolinks is performing well on my site, and very good money.

    I agree you might want to test both and see which works best but i bet infolinks for most people pays way better.

    My friend has vibrant media and his on the same niche.. I was able to to compare my earning with his and my total was higher.. this could be different with other niches so it's best to experiment before you deicide to stick with either one.

    Or: I had just over 10k views, 500 clicks, made $33.. Just because your sites perform the best with some programs and not so well with others doesn't mean we all do badly with kontera right? Obviously kontera works best for some niches, while infolinks works better for some.

    My entertainment network earned 1/4th of what it does with Kontera when I tested infolinks, is does that mean that Kontera sucks?

    Seems quite ignorant to say that 'Kontera sucks', shamelessly promote another program and believe that everyone doing well with Kontera is lying, right 'darling'?

    yep, its not like what it was when we joined it months back, but it still is better than kontera unless it starts paying even lower :eek:

    everyone doing well? from what i read and from personal experience, i would say that everyone is not doing well, actually very few are doing well :eek: and its quite possible that those few who are supporting kontera might well possibly be lying :eek:

    when there was no alternative like infolinks, we all used knotera and praised it, but if a high paying alternative like infolinks is there in the market then why use knotera. People like jim karter who used to earn 10k+ a month from kontera now says that he is earning more with infolinks :)

    I agree with everyone here. I use infolinks on my site (patentpenders.com) because I am doing much better than I was with Kontera. I upped my revenue by about $300 a month immediately after switching to infolinks.
