    Greetings Reed, Thomas Richmond here, i find that Affiliate marketing has been climbing at a rapid pace this past year from years of hiding from the big dogs who own a website selling there own products, these affiliates have surpast this in some capacity. I still think its best to have your own website though to get the full benifit. Thank you for the Adsence info Reed, your doing a great Job at informing us once again. 🙂

    Hi Reed,

    Using Google AdSense is a way to make money, that’s true. However, in my point of view, if you have a blog that’s very targeted at a certain niche, you’re also exposing your site to competitors because they can specifically buy advertising space on your blog.

    Thus, leading away potential buyers and visitors to buy from them instead of from you. Of course, that will take some smart marketing by that advertiser!

    Once again great post Reed! Adsense does have BIG advantages to those with high traffic on their site and/or have several websites to use it on. Some people get excited and think that having google ads on their site will starting giving thema nice paycheck for doing nothing. What people need to realize is that in order to make a decent income you need to work hard at marketing your blog/site and have the appropriate amount of traffic to make a decent income. I also believe you can pick and choose what type of ads would be displayed and of course I wouldn’t be picking any of my competitor ads.

    Thanks again Reed I always enjoy your blog. They are very informative, easy to read and not borring!

    Hope you had a great halloween

    I have just recently started building my own Adsense empires and have been quite successful with a few of my sites (others not so much but that’s mainly due to my low content).

    Most of my adsense websites have been specifically built for adsense and a couple CPA offers (Amazon, Commission Junction, etc). My income from those sites depends almost solely on adsense or those cpa offers and they have no other affiliate products or big ticket items on them.

    If the primary focus of my sites is sales from my own products or affiliate products, I tend to leave adsense off. I don’t want my visitors being distracted and taken away from my pages by clicking on an adsense ad.

    I think it’s one of those things you have to play with and test…test….test.

    This is just the way I’ve structured my sites and implemented adsense. Oh…and for those who are still wondering…Adsense is by no means dead. As long as advertisers are buying “Adwords For Content” then Adsense will continue to be a source of residual income.

    I myself have clicked on several Google Adsense ads on various sites. I’m educated enough to know what they are but when the ad is written well it can peak my interest enough to click it on and I’ve just made that website owner some money.

    As always I enjoy reading your posts,

    Nice article, Reed.

    I’m not really that big on Adsense, mostly because they’ve already banned me from displaying their ads. I’m not discouraging anyone from using Adsense, just know that they can yank you from the program for any reason.

    I have since moved to the Pepperjam network. There, I have complete control over what ads display on my blog and I am actually beginning to make better money now then I did when using Adsense.

    Hope this finds you and yours well

    @Kim one of the ways I got a lot of clicks on adsense is by having pages that really didn’t have any other options for them to go to see if they wanted to go somewhere they pretty much would click the adsense ad or go to their address bar and enter in a site.

    @Timothy yes it sure is nice to get income coming in all the time.

    @Thomas thank you

    @Asher there is a Competitive Ad Filter in adsense you just have to look for it.

    @Mohamed try doing a search like “game affiliate program” on google. Removed DealDotCom thanks

    @Rivers thank you

    @Ouss you’re welcome, now please don’t post a comment with that many links again.

    @Timothy Halloween was alright the party I planned to go to was canceled so I had to find another.

    @Serena agreed people need to realize they won’t make money off adsense unless they get traffic

    @Margaret glad to help.

    @PV thanks

    @Jane yes if you are selling your own products on the site then no need to use AdSense

    @Mikey yes I should look into pepperjam too I hear it brought up a lot

    @Jill you’ll get paid the same as if they didn’t buy from my understanding. Now there may be something on their end that rewards you with a few extra cents but you won’t be getting a huge amount.

    Adsense is a sure 2nd income stream for any affiliate marketer that is promoting products through website or blogs,its something that is automated without any more work but One needs to be careful with it and abide by the adsense rules or get ones account blocked.

    Reply Reply November 6, 2008

    Reed, good info. A site owner needs to think what’s the most desired ‘click thru’ he/she wants? If you have a high converting product on a page – DON’T also have Adsense. If not much is happening on a page and you’ve good content, then add Adsense for monetization (where it wouldn’t otherwise be happening.) To me it’s a great gap filler for bringing home a few rashers of bacon.
