While almost any company outing presents a great way to bond with coworkers, Chitika’s spring outing provided the added benefit of helping out our local community on top of the usual drinks and fun. Prior to hitting up Pinz in Milford for lunch, drinks, bowling, laser tag, and nostalgic video game competitions, our Westborough HQ employees teamed up with United Way to clean and maintain the Assabet River Rail Trail in central Massachusetts.
Earlier this week on Digital Point, Chitika publisher Chris discussed how he got his forum, DeadMansCrossZone.com, upgraded to Gold level while attracting a relatively small audience - tens of thousands of impressions per day. While we’ve discussed major considerations in terms of getting your site Gold account ready, here we’ll be discussing some of the unique considerations for smaller websites looking to achieve Gold account status as quickly as possible.
Formerly the Publisher Panel, our revamped Partner Center has undergone some major changes with our latest redesign. The aim was to make it as easy as possible for publishers to monitor and make changes to their accounts. In this blog post, we provide an overview of some of the newest tools and improvements that are available to all Chitika publishers
A question we often get from new publishers relates to what they can expect to earn using Chitika. While the answer can vary significantly, this blog post outlines the factors that influence publisher revenues on our network
In a previous study, 7,500 Chitika publishers made an average of 15% more revenue simply by turning on the Hover ad unit for their websites. And now, our new and improved Chitika Hover 2.0 is poised to make our publishers even more!
One of the biggest sources of frustration with some other ad networks is an ambiguous terms of service (TOS) agreement leading some publishers to be banned without so much as an explanation. This is sometimes after months or years of seemingly good standing with little to no changes to the site. At Chitika, we have a simple to follow TOS agreement focused on two factors.
One question we often get from publishers is how we determine which ads get shown on their site. While our algorithms take a wide variety of factors into account, the exact ad shown to a given user is greatly dependent on the geographic location of that user and how they got to the website itself. In this post, we’ll focus on both of these areas and how you can maximize your earnings with Chitika.
In this post, we tackle one of the major factors influencing a publisher’s revenue – how they implement the Chitika ad code in terms of page position and unit size. Due to the differences in behavior between sets of audiences, the optimum settings for maximizing ad revenue can vary drastically between website types.
For our premium advertisers, including those that provide us with Rich Media/display inventory, we’re able to deliver their best ads to sites with traffic representing the greatest proverbial bang for the buck – our Gold-level publishers. With Gold-level publishers recieving our highest-value ads in terms of CPM, how can a publisher move up the tiers?
We all know the realtor’s mantra “location, location, location” when referring to what makes property desirable. It doesn’t matter if you have the biggest, most beautiful house on the block; no one will want to buy it if its next to the dump!
