Chitika Ads in Joomla Content

How to add Chitika Ads in your Joomla Content and articles

Chitika ads in JoomlaIf you have been using PPC such as AdSense or Chitika for a while, you know that your CTR rate increases dramatically when your ads are displayed within your content rather than to the side, before or after your content.  There are very few Chitika plugins for Joomla - and with these you lack the control to determine exactly where you want to place the ads. You want your ads to blend seamlessly with your content, thus you want exact control of where you want the exact advert to appear, whether you want to align it to the left or to the right of the text and whether you want one advert in one article or three adverts in a different longer article. These are many things which the Chitika plugin allows you to do.

This plugin provided here gives you the control to decide where the Chitika Ads are going to appear without limiting you to predefined slots, or automatic generic spots. You simply insert the {chitika} tag where you want you ad to appear and this will be replaced by the Chitika ad details you have specified in the plugin parameters. Additionally you can define how you want to align the ad, so {chitika left} will align your ads to the left, {chitika right} will align the ads to the right, and {chitika center} will align the ads to the center. This makes sure that you are the one to decide where the ads will be displayed.

The plugin should be fairly easy to use. Install the plugin, put in your Chitika parameters from your pre-defined Chitika ad, and remember to enable it. Then go into your articles and insert {chitika} where you want the advert to appear. Add {chitika left}, or {chitika right} or {chitika center} if you want specific alignment of the ads to your content.
