What Do You think about the Kontera Ads at Sabahan.com?

Last modified on 6th September, 2007

You may have noticed that recently certain keywords are underlined twice. Those are Kontera ads in case you don’t know.

Kontera is an advertising program which selects contextually relevant keywords on a page in real time and automatically turned them into a link.

I was accepted into the Kontera program a few weeks ago and last Saturday I decided to give it a try and installed it.

The addition of Kontera link at Sabahan.com seems to contradict with my position in regard to what I consider annoying web design elements.

Like Snap’s Snap shots, Kontera shows a box when your mouse pointer hovers above a link.


But unlike Snap shots, you can actually read the text in the box.


I want your opinion on this, do you find it annoying? If so, do you think I should remove it? Feel free to leave your comment.


Update: Thank you for your feedback. Kontera ads are no longer served at Sabahan.com.

Update: Kontera is making a come back, read here why.

  • Wahlau.NET says:

    oh..that is kontera, I think it is easily mixed up with normal link and poping up seems a little annoying.

    Anyhow, like said by Katana, a user can easily ignore this ads if it is not relevent to them.

    I dont like snapshot but kontera is ok because it makes money

  • Katana says:

    As a user – Can be easily ignored
    As a webmaster – Good alternate income

    My 2 cents, hehe

    annoying just like the snapshots thing

    I just started with Kontera a few days back. However, my friends were telling me that they were having problems with IE 6. Seems like it is not compatible with IE 6. Now I am contemplating whether I should remove it or not.
