Copaclick.com is a new player in the field of pay-per-click advertising networks and I’ve been testing Copaclick on a few of my sites.
While I haven’t been using them for that long, I’ve decided to share my Copaclick review here because the company is constantly improving their system.
The one thing that Copaclick are proud of is their quick adaptation to the publisher feedback.
Therefore, I’ll cover here what they offer at the moment (September 2009), but I suggest that if you read this Copaclick review later, head over to their site to see what’s new.
Choosing Your Ad’s Appearance
You can select typical sizes for your ads like 300×250, 160×600, 468×180 and others. There are currently 7 color themes to choose from but I am sure that you’ll be able to choose many more soon.
One interesting feature that comes with Copaclick ads is the Highlight section which enables you to highlight the title of the ad.
This may be especially useful for the ads in the side column (160×600) where the highlight may help draw visitor’s attention to the ad. I am still testing this and I’ll let you know soon how it goes.
Choosing Ad’s Content
Copaclick ads are based on products so you can choose your preferred keyword for the ad (if I’m using the ad on a page about Hoover vacuums, I can select Hoover vacuum cleaner) but there’s also the Fallback Category (where I’d choose Vacuums) in case there’s no directly targeted ad for my page.
There are tons of Fallback categories, from used cars to hard drives and home appliances. If you have a product related website, I am sure you’ll find your category in there…
Optional Search Targetted Setting
Copaclick allows you to select search targetting which will use the referring search engine’s keywords (if there are any) instead of the keywords you set in the previous step.
Similar Products (Beta)
There’s also the Similar Products ad which shows more products all related to the keyword or the Fallback Category you selected.
Results So Far…
The Copaclick payout per click is currently at around the same amount as I get with Chitika on my sites. There are three reasons why I am still using Copaclick though:
- Not all visitors like the same ads. Some visitors prefer Adsense while others ads with images like Chitika and Copaclick. That’s why I use different types of ads on my pages to reach a wider audience.
- In some places, I use Copaclick as an alternate ad to Chitika. I use Chitika Premium which displays to search engine traffic and Copaclick which displays to the rest of the traffic. This adds additional revenue (I am at around 4-5 extra dollars per day) which I wouldn’t get with Chitika which wouldn’t show to non-search engine traffic.
- I’m waiting (testing) to see which ad network performs best in the long term and I’ll use it in the most prominent places.
One thing I really like about Copaclick ads is their clean look. They don’t like like annoying ads and blend very nicely and non-aggressively into a page.
If you have a product based website or even pages where products are mentioned, try the pay-per-click Copaclick network. (aff link)
They currently pay to Paypal if you accumulate more than $25 in one month which is also very convenient.
