Amazon recently activated their Contextlink feature on their affiliate program, which is almost identical to Kontera’s Contentlink. They are indeed identical on the way they display the advertisement, where they both create a link out of your content, and make a small pop-up description once the reader hovers their mouse over the link. The only difference is that Kontera is Pay Per Click while Amazon is Pay Per Action. My question is, can they both run on the same page? Now, if I have to choose between the two, I prefer Kontera for obvious reason, a click on Amazon link will not give me the money unless the clicker purchased the product while a click on Kontera gives me instant cash. I believe based on experience that you can only earn a decent amount on Amazon if your website is focused on product reviews.
So, I obviously recommend Kontera against Amazon. Now, how do you sign-up for Kontera? Most people are rejected on the Kontera program because of the 500,000 page impressions per month requirement. Unless your website is as popular as yugatech, I think, that figure is hard to reach. But hey, look at my textmates blog. I have Kontera ads there. I was able to get the approval even though I didn’t meet their page impression requirement. How was I able to do that? Simple. Just follow this link and read it. Then, thank me when you get approved. Hehehe.
Earning potential? Not as much as Google Adsense. But it is better than nothing. An extra cash is still an extra cash is still an extra cash. =) Napapagaya na ako sa style ni Misteryosa (a personal blog is a personal blog is a personal blog!).
