As Google AdSense allow only 3 ad units per page, we have good amount of space left empty on the blog.

Do You Know What The Word “Chitika” Means?

What does Chitika mean?

    Donald, Chitika answer to your question is Yes. At, there is Q & A says

    Can I use Chitika Ads with Google AdSense?
    Yes. You can use Chitika Ads with AdSense because Chitika Ads are non-contextual and do not look like AdSense units.

    I am using adsense with my other blogs. Do you know which is better, chitika or adsense? I would like to try chitika but I’m quite confused with their site interface. I don’t know how to use them and I don’t know the difference between the premium ads and ordinary ads.
