Euro 2008 has created a lot of surprises and the big team like France or Italy even Netherlands which has been considered the number one for the champion, were knocked out by small teams like Turky, Russia. I am happy as two teams that I voted for are now still in the semi-final rounds and my favorite team, Germany will definitely have advantages tonight as many of key players of Turkey could not play in this match.

Many of specialists and fans hope and think that Germany will defeat Turkey tonight to get the first ticket for the final match of the Euro 2008 but football is still the football. It always create surprises that make it a king game.

I am now concerned about who would be the best player for this match and I am sure that he will be a German, not a Turkish? Do you think so?  Can he be Ballack or Philip Lams?

We will wait and see 🙂


I am so sad to tell you guys that I failed to make bookings for my unplanned trip to Switzerland last week to watch the previous football match between my favorite team Germany and Portugal. But, anyway they got victory and I felt very happy about that.

Although I could not make the trip, I could still make my home a live and real Euro 2008 stadium with a 42 inches flat TV LCD that I have just bought. I have spent a lot of time exploring which type of TV is the best option with affordable price in a rush time. My friend who has used it for two years now advised me to buy a flat TV LCD as it could save space for my room. Further, he also shared with me several tips that help me make a right decision by reading trusted gadget reviews about the products I was interested in.

When I visited the websites that he suggested, I saw a list of top 10 gadgets and surprised that most of them are flat TV LCD products. I read carefully all reviews about the one I was interested in. Many customers of those websites said that these products are highest rated as it was considered another Euro 2008 stadium within their house. So, I decided to get one of 42 inches.

Now, you know why I am not sad even my bookings to Switzerland was not successful.

Chitika in 2003

As you all knew that Chitika has just made a huge changes in its affiliate network and a major decrease in its publishers’ revenue has also been reported. This changes was made due to a tough economic condition and US recession this time and many big advertisers now are not willing to pay for all clicks and a demanding percentage of clicks must be converted into sales to be eligible to get PAID.

This late change is quite natural in this challenging condition while other affiliate network of the same type had applied this quite long time ago like ShoppingAds, WidgetBucks or Amazon..etc. Now, the only affiliate network that still apply pay per click is TTZmedia and ShopZilla but ShopZilla is better as TTZmedia ads will only be displayed in specific English-speaking users/countries.

Here are two key notice posted on the Chitika blog that you must know to have suitable changes in your strategies if you would still like to generate more revenue from this industry.

Who Will Benefit From these changes ?

1. Publishers with good search engine traffic: The Chitika | Premium unit is working out great for our publishers with good search engine traffic. Such publishers are benefitting from targeted CPC text ads in a competitive marketplace. And on the advertiser side, this creates good conversion rates. This matching of publisher to advertiser is creating a nice health marketplace for all parties involved.

2. Publishers with very high traffic — but who were not getting clicks in the old system. These publishers are now seeing their yields optimized by the chitika system intelligently switching between premium ads and graphic ads.

3. Publishers with good content/brand name sites: These publishers will really benefit from the new tools like AdPro that Chitika is starting to roll out.

Who Will NOT Benefit From these changes ?

Any publisher who does not get significant traffic from search engines. For such publishers, we have made available two options:
a. If you have a high conversion rate (meaning that your clicks convert into sales for the advertisers) you will be successful with the CPA ads.

b. If you have a high amount of traffic (whether it converts or not) you can benefit from our CPM Graphic Ads program.

Good luck and hope to here you comments on this soon.
