During the Malaysia General Election’s traffic spike on my personal blog, I took off my Kontera links because they are so confusing to my readers. My readers on the personal blog are not tech savvy and I know those links are going to drive them to madness. The mention of the word ‘election’ will bring up several links in one post. (you can set the number of links to appear but I am too lazy) Moreover, the whole point during the election was to get people to catch up on the elections news and not to make money.
I personally find Kontera Links an annoyance sometimes. However, on certain blogs where I don’t care about readers’ experience, I do get rather fine income. So far, I have made a few hundred bucks from Kontera. It is slow but there is money to be made from there.
However, they only works on certain categories of blog. Making money and personal blogs are not money maker. But some categories do make about USD60-70 a month. So, I am still hanging on to Kontera eventhough I personally find those double underline (note that you cannot meddle with the codes to make it single underline) and little pop-up bubbles rather irritating.
After all, we are into making money and every little bit counts. If you want to make money with Kontera, you can sign up for Kontera ads here. It is ok to place Kontera with Google Adsense but you cannot have Kontera with paid posts.

wow, $60-70 a month on Kontera! That’s really good, I think I get only a couple of dollars max a month LMAO

That’s exactly what I want to know — what type of blogs or topics are suitable for use with Kontera. I removed mine after 3 months as my blog was personal and makes a measly 40 cents total.

[…] Then, I receive payment from Kontera. I have actually forgot all about Kontera But I got a payment through Paypal for USD120. I also got another mail that I am earning some affiliate fees now. Just when I was about to give up on Kontera, I earn money! […]

It makes me roughly 30 cents a day on a good day.
It’s a slow trickle for me.

I’m using Kontera on my Hubpages, but am struggling with it. Also discovered that if you make less than $5 a month, you forfeit the money. From Googling I think it’s only worth having Kontera is you have a large amount of traffic

Kontera is a scam. I made over 130 usd and was getting over 230 click yet per day but only made like 2.30 usd..Less that 1 cent a click. SO I removed the adds and switched to Infolinks. Kontera close my account and told me they will not pay me for breach of contract. I cannot belive how a company like this can get away with scamming people! OMG STAY away from Kontera.
With info links I now get over 12 USD a pay with the same amount of clicks! :)
