Chitika Review - Pay Per Click Ads

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

I tested Chitika, a pay per click (PPC) ads service to help publishers monetize their traffic. I displayed their ads a forum message board and 2 blogs for approximately a week, with very disappointing results. Here's my quick review of Chitika.

$0.07 for 5 clicks? Are you kidding!?

You read it well. What they give you per click is ridiculous. The highest paid click I managed to get was $0.03. I've read similar feedback on quite a few blogs and forums analyzing various ads networks. It would seem that their PPC is very, very low, especially if you're used to Adsense's $0.50 to $3.00 per click. Even with a very high click-through rate, which I had not, it would take you a huge number of clicks to earn anything of interest. 

A Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Blog!

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

I decided to create a new blog dedicated to Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, a classic RTS game released in 2001.

It can be found at the following address:
http://starwars-galacticbattlegrounds.blogspot.ca/

I've been an avid played of this game for more than a decade and thought it would be an interesting project to start a blog about it and see what comes out of it. I'm going to share resources, information, strategies, tips and tricks for Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.
