    And you wonder why click revenue is going down?

    Revenue from Google affiliate sites using the AdSense program came to $1.04 billion, or 39 percent of total revenue--up from last year's earnings of $675 million. http://publications.mediapost.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=Articles.san&s=49882&Nid=24401&p=204107

    They tout the partnerships with big sites but the vast majority of the income is probably begin made on the backs of the little operators.

    I think they pocket way too muich of the profit and should share a bit more revenue with the people that line their pockets or the publishers cut out the middle man (google) and go direct to the advertiser.

    my 2 cents.

    I have moved some of my properties to YPN and also advertiser direct which pays way more than G. Not just bitchin about it I'm doing something about it :) I give placement to whatever vendor provides the most $$. G is currently running third.

    I think it is awesome that they crushed Yahoo this quarter. And I think this is the first time the Adsense network broke 1 billion for a quarter right? We rock!

    Revenue was around $1 billion, but they paid out $825 million to search partners. So on average, they're taking roughly 18% of partner revenue, if I'm looking at the numbers correctly.

    Obviously the premium partners and big players get a bigger cut, so the average Adsense member might be getting 70%? Just a guess.

    Adsense payouts keep dropping. I'm looking for some better paying alternatives (YPN is amazing).

    I agree... I've worked my ass off all summer on various blogs and now Google has recently been "smart pricing" me. I'm about ready to fly out there and kick them in the freaking nuts!

    Personally I think its time Google was broken up into smaller companies.

    Smaller companies are somehow better than large ones?

    Smaller companies compete with each other.
    Google can just run roughshod over everyone else. (like Microsoft attempts to do)

    Where there is a market place, the customer is treated better. You dont have to go far in this place to see how bad some people have been treated.

    When YPN is international and MSN ContentAds, it will be better for everyone.

    People who use search engines are looking for quality since price is not a factor. This naturally creates monopolistic competition.
    Google is the leader in the industry for a reason.
