Titan No More. Now I'm A Glitterati!

It's most probably the hardest decision I had made in the year 2009. I've been thinking about it for quite a while now. I've listed the pros, cons and weighed my options carefully times and again. Finally I made up my mind to end my 7-months relationship with Advertlets. At the beginning of last year, I was using both Advertlets and Nuffnang to serve ads on my blog, but later...both company decided to embark on their own respective loyalty programmes that restrict the inclusion of other ads from SEA! I have to choose...

Bye bye Advertlets!
Hopefully I'll be seeing you again! :'(


So...I dumped Nuffnang in favour of Advertlets. The reason was quite simple back then, I simply didn't like the empty ads that Nuffnang serves (click here to read more). Till today, I still don't like the empty ads that Nuffnang shows. It's like giving them free publicity effortlessly. But then this year, I've decided to give Nuffnang a try. After being an Advertlets Titan for a few months, my earning is relatively very, very low compared to Adsense. It's like I'm not making any money from Advertlets at all. I wanted to discard it...but my patriotism held me back. After all I should be supporting a Malaysian company right?

This is me right now!
Let's see...


Then on new year eve...I pondered about sticking with Advertlets...A cracking decision to make. It's quite sad that I had to part with Advertlets. The only reason I migrated to Nuffnang its because of its Innit! Nothing more. Because I really hate its abusive empty ads. Yupe, I figured I could take advantage of Nuffnang's Innit for a little publicity. So if Advertlets were to shake up a little bit, be more organized and responsive and best of all rolled out their very own version of Innit...I promise I'll switch to Advertlets again!

I hate the empty ad!

My heart is still very much with Advertlets...I could be switching back any time! Perhaps tomorrow. Who knows? But right now I'm a Glitterati! Happy blogging everyone. =)

Mrcoolku said...

I'm Glitterati from very first but didn't earn much because of low traffic. My adsense will earned more than NN too. :)

Tekkaus said...

MrCoolku-->Yeah! Perhaps we need more Malaysian's Traffic. 50% of my traffics are from America! Or maybe we should just pay attention on Adsense. =)

Tekkaus said...

BB Community-->Yeah! But I'm focusing on adsense for the time being! Same to you BB Community! =)

Tekkaus said...

Suituapui-->You are really freat you know. You blog not because of money. =)

foongpc said...

I don't even bother about earnings from Advertlets - I think they are not paying out on time.

Nuffnang should be better, but like you, I hated they gave empty ads, so I dumped them!

I think the best is Adsense. It's worldwide, and if you want to make most money, Adsense is the way to go. Only thing, I don't know why Adsense don't accept me : (

Faisal Admar said...

i used ad sense before and after a while the ads is getting on my nerve and i quit all ads.

i don't know, i just find they are ugly and annoying haha. its just me! :P

Tekkaus said...

Foongpc-->Yeah! Actually locals or SEA ads company payout are low compared to adsense. But we need to support Malaysia right? Ha =) But I also hated the empty ads that nuffnang gave. That's why I reiterated that I might switched back to advertlets.

Why Adsense didn't accept you? How come? I don't understand. Perhaps you can try to reapply! =)

Tekkaus said...

Faisal Admar-->Yeah! That proves you have passion for blogging! =)

foongpc said...

I also don't know why. They just say that they cannot accept me at this moment in time and hope I understand without giving any reasons whatsoever! I cannot do anything as the their email cannot be replied to.

I already tried to apply twice. First time, I was using the same computer as my brother who also has his own blog. He has Adsense in his blog, so I figured that Google thinks it's the same IP address so disallowed it.

Second time, I use my laptop, but internet connection is by way of a router in my house. Again rejected - I think maybe Google still think I'm using the same modem although different computer? What do you think?

Maybe, I should try again at a place outside my house at a cafe with wifi?

Tekkaus said...

Foongpc-->Hmm...perhaps you can try register it at cybercafe? =) Poor guy, if not I thing you are earning tonnes by now.

JayceOoi said...

Nice move. Advertlets payment is bad and slow. Support also the same.

Tekkaus said...

Tekkaus-->Really! But I still have to see if it's really workable for me! =)

永遇乐 said...

First time visit your blog.
Advertlets vs NuffNang = No end war

I wonder how do you become adverts Titan
Is it by email request? Or you automatically become a Titan member after a period of time?

Between, why when someone having his own domain will increase Adsense earning?

Haha, nice to meet you anyway~!

Tekkaus said...

永遇乐-->Yeah! We need to request via email. And you need to sign up at least 3 months to do so.

I believe it has something to do with the indexing of its webpage.

Nice to meet you too. Thanks for dropping by. =)

永遇乐 said...

Oh I see
Indexing of its webpage...

Thanks :)
