Since I started using Kontera back in April of this year I’ve been pretty happy with the results. Earnings have been up and down, but as I posted back in June, Kontera was earning roughly 50%-75% of what my Adsense for Content was earning, and has been ever since.
Well, while checking my stats for yesterday I was surprised to see that Kontera actually out-performed my Adsense for Content by about 10% (i didn’t use my calculator, that’s just off the top of my head). This is the first time that Kontera actually earned more than Adsense.

Kontera does well for us because of our high number of user-generated forum post/pages. Adsense tends to not perform well on this kind of pages and this was one of the reasons I decided to try Kontera in the first place. I expect that as the number of forum post/pages increase so will our earnings from Kontera.I’m not trying to persuade anyone to use Kontera instead of Adsense, but rather I’m just re-emphasizing that Kontera is a great way to add to your overall website earnings in addition to Adsense. This is particularly true if you have a content-heavy site or a forum.
