Chitika publishers see drastically reduced earnings after audits: I got in after the hump, maybe well after the hump (the hump being the huge rush of people trying out Chitika for their adserving needs). I personally made little to no money right from the beginning and frankly should have known that this would be the outcome. Chitika had piss poor results for my blog with their text ads and their eMiniMalls returns have now fallen to those levels. Long live Chitika, Chitika is dead. There is enough money to be had in this business that if you create a little buzz in the industry, you can rope in enough people to start making you some money. I should really resurrect that open source text link ad app (to be able to sell ads independantly and dynamically on your blog, accept payments via PayPal) I was putting together.
