    Why do you all promote Chitika as opposed to Adsense?

    I don't. I think chitika sucks and I'll never use it again. It was a waste of my time.

    I have some sites where chitika has outperformed adsense for a long time. Other sites where Chitika makes no sense to have on them. It really depends on the site and if you can find good links to products that people will click on. If you can do that, and your site is related, you can pretty well with chitika.

    If you are just running chitika as an generic ad placement, they tend to perform poorly, and worse than something like Adsense or YPN.

    Just as with anything, it depends on what site Chitika is running on. You have to try it out and test before making judgments.

    I think Chitika is a complete waste of time. I tried it on one of my domains that usually pulls $10 a week with adsense and ended up making $1 in 3 months with Chitika. Never again

    As a matter of interest, was the domain concerned with any sort of consumer product, or was it something eslse?

    I think it depends a great deal on the type of site you have. For my sites Chitika offers very little in the way of products that would be of interest to my visitors.

    Exactly. I have a few sites that Chitika completely sucks on no matter what I do with the ads.

    However.... I also have sites where Chitika leaves AdSense for dead as it highly relates to my topic there and the click values are higher.

    Like with any ad system - you've got to experiment, test how things go, track results and then make a decision on if and how to use it.

    chitika is really depends on the site. Looks like site/blog with product/item related doing pretty well.

    For a product oriented blog/site there really isn't anything better than chitika.

    iAudiophile uses it on a few pages, and the money we get really isn't too bad.

    not all sites are approved and not all webmasters are paid so, Why is Chitika better than Adsense?

    Is it? I really doubt it

    I can't use adsense so i use chitika instead. The good thing is you get paid via PayPal. Everything else sucks.
