For those who don’t know, Luminate is a service which makes your Pictures Interactive. And helps you generate an additional income from your pictures. To know more about it go through “Luminate – Adsense for Images”.

Initially I was very optimistic after implementing, Luminate on one of my websites which has a lot of pictures. As the Ads showed “ADs by Google” on the Luminate ads, I thought the payout would be as good as Adsense.

But once I implemented it, the Adsense CTR started to go down drastically. But the compensatory income from Luminate was far below the expectations.

Thus the over all income started to go down. So within a few days of implementation of Luminate, I had to remove it from my website.

So for my website it was not beneficial.
