    Affiliate marketing... definitely.
    Think it this way. Adsense is paying you from money that advertisers paid to Adsense (you are getting a % of the Adsense fee, it's like a 2nd tier commission)
    Affiliate marketing is paying you for promoting x product (first tier commission)
    First tier commissions are always higher than 2nd tier ;)

    Affiliate marketing is by far better (you just make more) if you are good at promoting a product, but if you're feeling lazy and feel like having Google do all the work for you (in terms of targeted ads), use Adsense.

    Sorry buddy, but it is hard to answer. It is like if had to decide which fruit: apple or pear? Two completely different things...

    It depends on the website being created, but personally "affiliate marketing" re-enforces the website if its a good product or service.

    I voted for adsense.The biggest advantage of AdSense for feeds is the same as AdSense for content: you can earn money by placing targeted Google ads in your feeds. AdSense for feeds ensures that you can earn advertising revenue whether users see content on your website or in your feed.

    But around affiliate products you cannot build very generic sites. Right?

    i believe affiliate marketing and earn more money while every sign up actually you can earn big bucks of it compare to adsense where you need to collect lot of clicks to generate lot of money .
    So it actually depend which is your expertise where you good in conversion or good in getting visitors to click on ads.

    adsense is deffinetely the easy way . It's enough to have a 2 page website with a shitload of SEO to make a couple of bucks per day . My brother has one of these websites and he makes arround 2 dollars per day off it. But then again , he has the affiliate marketing website which generates a whole lot more on a daily basis , but that requires a lot of work. So in the end, the question is: are you lazy and want to make easy money or are you determined and hard working and determined to bring in the ''green'' ?

    I mix both. I use Google DFP so Affiliate Ads for example are shown to the Country they relate to , and Google Adsense Ads are used the rest of the time.

    This ensures that I target "manually" the correct country for the Affiliate Products/Links but let Adsense do the rest of the work around Content & Geo Targetting.

    I would also support affiliate marketing simply because of the fact that you derive a lot of satisfaction after generating every sale!
