Chitika eMiniMalls is Chitika’s flagship paid per click (PPC) product.

These ads are behaviorally targeted and they will displayed only to your U.S. search engine traffic (including certain other traffic). So, if your website gets a lot of U.S. traffic, then Chitika Premium ads are just perfect for you. Chitika Premium ads are available in all standard IAB sizes and they are compatible with Google AdSense.
Multiple Product Unit (MPU)
This PPC ad unit is similar to Chitika eMiniMalls but displays ads for various products instead of just one. More products means more chances of genuine clicks by visitors and more income for publishers.
A hosted ad management platform for publishers that will enable you to start, promote and manage your direct ad sales. After sign up, Chitika will create a Direct Ad Sales storefront for you. Then you can promote, monitor and approve your direct advertising campaigns. Chitika will take care of your approved advertisersâ€™ campaign set-up and ad serving, and processing of payments.
This is Chitika’s text link ad solution. Chitika Linx will automatically identify important keywords on your web pages and will hyperlink those keywords to interactive CPC-based product listings. This is a non-intrusive form of advertising and your users will see the ads only when they mouse-over those links.

Chitika’s Referral Program
The publisher referral program of Chitika is also a good way to earn some extra money. You will earn 10% of the total CPC revenue that your referrals earns for up to 12 months. You can also earn money by referring advertisers to Chitika. For each $100 spent by your advertiser referral, you will get $25 as commission.
What about Payments?
Chitika will pay you 60% of Chitika’s revenue. They makes payments to their publishers via PayPal and check. All payments are sent around the start of every month. You will receive your payments about 30 days after the end of the month in which your account’s total generated revenue exceeds $10 (for Paypal) or $50 (for checks).
In my view, Chitika is the best alternative or companion to Google Adsense. If you run a blog or website focused on poducts, then Chitika eMiniMalls may give better results than AdSense. Chitika Premium ads are also a good option if you get a good amount of US search traffic. Right now, I am getting really good results from their Premium ads on one of my blogs. So, I would highly recommend you to join Chitika today.
