I removed Chitika at the very beginning of December and just got my payment for Nov. & a day or two of December. I experienced a 21% loss after the audit. It's not as bad as what some people saw, but I'm definitely not putting Chitika back on my sites...

I experienced less than 3$ take back for both Nov and December plus the 10% bonus for both months made up the difference.
I run a blog pertaining to hockey, spend about an hour a day getting the proper key words and it has worked for me.
Very happy with the results and Chitika coming thru for me,

My Nov and Dec audited revenue posted and my share was Paypal'd this evening. Overall haircut was 28%.. a good bit better than October's 38% crew cut. Daily deductions ranged from 48% to just 3% in mid/late-Nov when I removed all Chitika ads from my site after their Curiousity Click mods killed their ads' CTR.

I'm one of the lucky ones. For November and December combined, I took about an eight percent hit in the audit. I can live with that.

But I do notice the Average Cost Per Click has continued to drop from when I first joined in November: about a 30 percent drop in Dec. and 50 percent in Jan. Those seem to be quite dramatic drops though maybe I'm wrong. What have the rest of you experienced?

I've noticed the same.

The difference between audited and unaudited was $1.30 for me. Chitika is doing good for me so far.

I am just wondering, those of you that took big hits in the audits: Are you displaying an alt ad for non-supported IP's?

I was geo-targeting to only US and UK, still received a massive correction. I had the alt URL, but that did not really help. After audit, my eCPM was around .04 CPM. I do not plan on running them again. I can get 4 times that amount with YPN.
