Chitika Spamming




I thought the email I got from Chitika last night was something really special. But then again I have this gut feeling they’re just spamming me…

Here’s a copy of the email:

Abe,

yugatech.com/blog is a great site! Proud to offer the industry’s first interactive ad unit, eMiniMalls, I feel we would really rock on this site. Adsense compatible with a huge 10% referral commission. Check us out today, www.chitika.com

Best Regards,

To Karla,

If you really thought my blog was that great, you should have known I am already a member of Chitika. I did post quite a number of entries about it here, here, here and here. A quick search for Chitika was just a click away.

And when you sent me this email, did you bother checking my email in your database because it’s the same email I used to sign up with you? You would have then figured out that I am still using eMiniMalls, although not on this blog.

That brought me to conclude that your email was purely spam. I won’t reply to that email but instead will post it here so we’ll see if you’re really reading my blog and prove me wrong.

Update: Ms. Escolas emailed me back disproving my ealier allegations that Chitika is spamming and I thanked her for clarifying that. I am still hesitant to use Chitika on this blog since a majority of my traffic is from Asia, which their campaign still does not support.

    They do check your site for mentions. They reacted to my Chitika and PayPal story.
