|The Adsense Alternative Chitika Is Sadly Shutting Down|
Most people will not have heard of Chitika, but it was often used as an Adsense alternative and offered pretty good ad rates. In fact, it was pretty much the same as Adsense, only it served contextual ads only which is one of the highest paying types of ads. It was also one of the very few that allowed for payouts via Payoneer and PayPal.
Sadly as of April 30th 2019 it is no more and I for one think that is a shame. Sadly there were signs the ad delivery network was in trouble and its lack of different style ads and ad-testing meant it wasn't moving with the times in the style that many other ad platforms have been, Adsense themselves included. As a word of advice if you are using Chitika and don't want to go back to using Adsense you could always use Ezoic to boost those earnings as unlike Chitika they have moved with the times and offer much better ad testing software. But having said that there are many other Adsense alternatives out there and it is well worth signing up to at least one or two of them.
If you have any thoughts or memories of using Chitika I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Now both Zemanata and Chitika gone what other contextual ad plugins would you recommend?
