I just posted a new article, "Can You Really Make Money With Adsense?" which you can read at:

http://www.buildonlinefortunes.com/adsensemoney.htm

Even with Google making it more difficult, there is still a way to get a nice check at the end of month. But first, decide what you want your biz to be and accomplish. Maybe ads aren't the way to go if its a sales letter :?

Thank you for the link.

Sometimes you can make more money by putting advertisiments of companies, rather than Google AdSense.

It's free to try it out so you can check it out but I have never been an Adsense fan. Lets see, I get the traffic to my site and hope for cents on a click while someone else gets a commission, no thanks. Plus you're at the mercy of google. They make a change you might get slapped. You drive traffic to your site then you give it away for a few cents a click. I think it would be better to have a few affiliate links in there instead.

Check out Havads see my sig (it's an affiliate link). I like having ads that I control. Adsense template sites, I guess people make money by having many sites that's why Joe Comm is now offering 100 cookie cutter adsense templates per month. I think that's junk and Google and the other search engines hate it. That's why the recent adsense changes because of people like Joe Comm cluttering the Internet with worthless sites. I prefer to develop my sites, and use block ads that I control and I list only products/services that I like and I stand behind and promote. Unlike Adsense you have no control what will be displayed.

Yes, you are right about adsense in some cases.

I've started adding cpa's where appropriate to some sites. I've yet to see that cpa's are the answer to making money with ads on your pages.

I'm going to look at Haveads too.

Any positive comments?

I haven't used CPA's before. Any good resources to get started using them?

I make a little over $600 a month from Adsense right now. My site is only a year old and has approx. 120 pages.

I use http://www.adsblacklist.com to keep the crap MFA ads away and it seems to work for me pretty well. :wink:

Hi,

Yes, there are many reasons for using CPA's (Cost Per Action Ads)
that you can get by signing up at many networks like:

azoogle.com
modernclicks.com
maxbounty.com
hydramedia.com

etc. Do a google.

The biggest reason for using CPA's is Money! The ads that are pay
per lead are the best. You can make up to $50 per lead for insurance
quotes, cars, etc.

Your site needs to have decent targeted traffic and quality content to
not only be approved by the CPA network but convert and make
money.

If you have any specific questions ask the affiliate managers at the networks.

You can still use some adsense with cpa's but you should test and track
what works and what doesn't.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I just dont like google adsense anymore.
Sure, there was a lot of hype about it at one time .

But a person new to the internet really cant do too much with it.

I like the affiliate marketing better. Why would I give away my visitor for pennies when I could get a good commission .

Google adsense is like selling your visitor for pennies.

That's my 2 cents.

bye,
faraz

It really depends on your niche. If you have a niche that has high-paying keywords, you can make a good deal of money. I know someone in another forum who just broke the $10,000 a month mark on Adsense alone. Not sure how many sites he has, but the money is the money.

I've only been at this whole thing for 11 months now and my pages have the ability of getting $1 to $2 a click. That's pretty good. If you use the adblacklist.com along with your Competitive Ad Filter to keep the MFA site's away, any "pennys" you may be getting tend to go away fast.

:wink:

At one time last year, I had over 3000 machine generated sites with AsSense. Made $10-15 day tops before getting de-listed. Sure you can make more, I just got tired of jumping thru hoops. Other business models are more profitable.

Is the site the one in your signature? (about Oregon)
That one looks good, in my opinion.

Well I am sure the other guy must have spent some money on his own adwords program to earn that much, right?

Yes, it's from my Oregon Coast site.

I'm assuming he put in a good deal of work to get where he is, including PPC. I haven't read the entire thread. It's 18 pages long! :lol:

MFA sites are never going to pay-off in the long run. The SE's are much more concerned with original content.

I looked at this just now and I'm a little uncertain how it's used?

Do I understand that as an adsense publisher I can use it to get a list of sites that bid super low on PPC?
