Chitika eMiniMalls October Audit Results - How big was your Haircut?

If you are like many of us you signed up for Chitika's eMiniMalls in October. The audited October revenues are finally in. Without getting too specific I would like to see how big of a haircut people are taking on their audited results. We had a reduction of a little over 10 percent.

<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!

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.

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.
