Chitika Highlight is really an innovative ad product. When any reader of your blog highlights a piece of text, the ad shows up. Now, many people do copy text from blogs to make another search or simply for using to paste it somewhere. Sometimes people even do it unknowingly. At that time the ad appears and when the users click, you make money.
This is really unique!
I have been checking ad networks from almost 5 years but I have never heard or seen such an ad unit. It will surely increase the revenue of your blog just for the fact that people will click it out of curiosity. I mean seriously, when you highlight text in a blog, what happens? Nothing. Right. Now, when an ad appears people will definitely want to check it out by presuming that it is a related search item and as a matter of fact it is definitely a related search item.
Highlight ads are contextual!
The best part is that these ads are contextual, that means if a user has highlighted, say “Travel” as the next then he would see the Travel related ads only in the small pop up window.
How to activate these ads?
To activate these ads all you have to do is visit the Chitika Dashboard and select the Menu ChitkaApss(Beta). Then, select enable the Chitika Highlight ad provided you have an account. Otherwise you can sign up for one.
