Chitika is one of the famous Adsense alternative that is serving ads since 2003. Here is the complete review of Chitika that was posted by me 2 years back. In earlier days Chitika worked fine but later on Chitika earnings dropped gradually. The CPC was even $0.01 for many clicks that is very low.The reason behind such low CPC is Non US visitors.Our blog is getting huge amount of visitors from Asia and CPC for Asia for chitika is very low. During the Whole course of using Chitika as adsense alternative, we eaned around $ 107 via it,half of which was the affiliate commission for referring Chitika to friends and others.
