I have had some success from Chitika on other sites so I'm sure that they must be bringing in good income for Squidoo, however I'm not sure if I can't do better. What do I mean? Well I checked my stats from the last payment and my tier one payment for Chitika was only 42c. I'm not concerned that I turned the Chitika ad off of my iphone lenses now, 42c really isn't a huge amount in my opinion.
However......Chitika knows what they're doing so perhaps I should try a little experiment.
Lou's Online Jewelry Store and have added a text module at the bottom of each page (it's a page break lens) and I have put a banner for one of my affiliates along the bottom. Now this lens doesn't get a lot of visits, but I had just been looking at that affiliate (seeing a few of Kate Middleton's engagement rings being sold thanks to one of my hubs on British Royal Engagement Rings) at the time that the idea came to me.
I am going to check out a few other lenses and put this idea to the test - anyone care to join me? It will be interesting to see if we can get clicks to our affiliates that payout more than a mere 42c for a tier one!
