Adsense Vs Kontera my past one year experiences

Adsense has always created problems for me in terms of ctr and the 0 cents, 1 cents, 2 cent clicks on top of it. I spent countless hours managing the display and still had same issues.
With Kontera In-Text ads, my AVG CTR for the last 12 months is at 15% and average 10 cents per click. The returns were excellent with little or no effort on kontera ads.
How is your experience?
What do you suggest me? Continue or discontinue Adsense?
Thanks
conjo

What's in text ads? Is it one of those that adds green hyperlinks to your content body?

No offense... but looking at your stats on both contextual network, I think there's little money to be made in your market. Without knowing what topic your site is about, my opinion is very speculative.

Anyway, have you considered running both on the same page to increase revenue?

Irock,
Any suggestion and or comment is welcome and will appreciate it if it helps improve my earnings.

At present the market iam in is 'online party invitations' and is busy during festival/holiday seasons.
I am adding one more website which will be news service and is expected to drive heavy traffic.
I will post my experience with adsens again after few months and see, if it helps.

At present i fell that the space iam allocating for adsense is not worth the money iam getting.

Sorry if I sound very naive... but what's 'online party invitions'? I know what i means literally, but how does this have to do with website except to send out invitation?

Can Kontera and Adsense run on the same page? I think that will have problem with Adsense TOS.

Is it? I've seen like thousands of sites running both on the same page.

I have no idea why you're asking this. Surely there can't be any doubt about what you expect people to say.

As for me, I dislike Kontera's approach to serving ads and will never use them. I don't find them relevant or contextual at all, merely jarring. But if they work for you then stick with them and drop AdSense.

Irock,
Its about sending out invitations, announcements, party tips etc. On the average i have about 20 guests per invitation which gives a decent traffic to my website.

It IS against the G TOS to have both Kontera and AdSense on the same page. However, as many of us know, there are a ton of sites using both.

I got approved by Kontera yesterday which I will use on non-Adsense pages together with Chitika. How long does it take for this Kontera code to work? It's nearly 20 hours now and a day later I still see no adlinks on the test pages.

Still no Kontera ads showing after 28 hours. Will this happen every time I want Kontera ads on a new page?

my kontera ads are showing pretty much instantaneously. I posted a reply in another kontera topic, but it's been placed on hold (yellow notice?)
