    I've signed up for a native ad network that's similar to taboola.

    Over the past several hours, I've had one of my articles go semi-viral. I've managed to get 2.3K impressions with those ads...31 clicks which is 1.31% CTR, and ONLY $1.46?!?!

    What the hell am I doing wrong? Sorry if I sound like a total noob loser (because I am), but it's incredibly frustrating for me.

    On adsense I've had 8 clicks with 0.5% CTR on that same article and I've earned $4.25. Better, but it's still very low

    Is this normal? I've only started out my website like a week ago.

    Maybe that network sucks balls.

    Why don't you stick to adsense?
