<10%, I feel thrilled, especially when compared to what some people said they lost in the other thread!

The audit numbers vary quite a bit, even for people who say they are doing geotargeting. It would be interesting for people to mention what their principal advertisers were when mentioning how much they were adjusted down. I can't help but feel some kind of pattern will emerge.

I would also like to see people post what (in broad terms) their niches are & whether the ads are for products or services.
To answer the OP, I get to keep my one click from when I joined on Oct 31. Woohoo!

I took about a 40% hit. :(

If your taking hits like this, surly you cant continue?

Essex_boy: I'm only running chitika on three small websites that, for various reasons, I don't want to put Adsense on. I've applied to YPN to replace chitika on 2 of those sites, but haven't been accepted yet. The smallest of the 3 sites is almost a perfect match for chitika -- and even that one barely beats adsense after chitika's monthly trimming.
I started running Chitika on the small sites as an experiment to see if I could make more than Adsense on my big site. At this point, I'd have to say 'no chance in hell'.

Thanks I did consider running that instead of Adsense just to see but with these dire warnings I think ill keep clear.

38% hit with 76% USA traffic.

41% cut out with over 80% North American traffic. Too fishy to be believable, so I cut Chit SHI* from most of my pages. Scammers.
