Chitika is my #2 ad supplier, after AdSense. At one point, I estimated their EPC average at 5 cents.
A while back, they decided to hide their poor performance by removing click data (# of clicks, CTR), thereby making it impossible to determine what their EPC is.
Because of this, I only give them my poorest performing AdSense pages, mainly so that I don't dilute my AdSense stats. If they provided the d@mned stats, I would test them on other pages, but blindly with no data? No way.
You serve ads? Then you provide the d@mned stats, unless you are a pack of idiots! I really find this exasperating and hard to believe. Management by ostrich theory (head in the sand). Please use our service, but we won't tell you how your ads are performing. Mind-boggling.
