    realize whether adsense is or isnt for you. and affiliate or cpm program may pay you better in some cases.

    Absolutely. My tip would be to not focus on Adsense as your sole income stream, but to diversify in terms of programs and revenue models.

    First of all, I agree with Sports Outlaw that it is probably better to run Adsense and a relevant affiilate program. Two different programs with two different models will help smooth out the bumps in your overall earnings and protect you from sudden crashes.

    Build a good site that gets good traffic and then you can add a third earner: Selling a limited number of links (say 5 max) to related sites from your (now high-PR) top page on a pay-per-month basis. They get the PR link and targetted traffic, while your users get easy links to relevant sites. Everyone wins, and it is a legitimate practice as you will not be selling the links for PR alone. The flat-rate payment system provides you with a third stream of income based on another different payment model - once more protecting you from the ups and downs of life.

    yup....!!

    I agreed with that Amit.

    my friends,
    try imagine your articles was surrounded by the adsense or pay-per-click programme... will your visitor feel easy to click on them? what say you?

    Well it depends what kind of site you have, on some sites you do want the banners to stand out.

    adsense is settling in at #3 or #4 among my income streams at the moment, and they are being phased out to the point they are my "default ads" when I have nothing else to display in many locations.

    The two tips that have helped me the most are: :D
    1. Wider is better for adsence ads
    2. Use the heat map
    I went to the wider skyscraper ad and moved the ads from the right side to the left side and went from 2-3% CTR to 7-12% CTR.
    This combined with a steady increase in traffic is working very well. :)

    ok, what if you have a network, a lan, and their are 50 computers, and someone clicks on your ad from another computer, they have nothing to do with you, they are just an employee of the same company or something, and they click the link, will google count that? Because from my very short experience, it doesnt appear they do.

    It will bite you in the @$$ when you least expect it. My sites aren't made for my friends/family, so I don't tell them about them. Sometimes letting friends know you make money per click makes them want to help you, which, in fact hurts you in the end.

    Now a lan with 50 computers and everyone knowing about your website.... i would block that IP ASAP. Not worth the hassle for a couple of bucks IMO.

    Tips? Pay special attention to the instructions on the claymore anti-personnel mine which says "This Side Towards Enemy" :)

    I'd have to say that you should never lose sight of who the real audience of your site is...the visitors...don't design it specifically for the search engines.

    Although I use an example of 50 computers behind a lan, now think of a vpn network, where there is over 1000 computers connecting throughout the week. They appear to all be originating from the same network, but they are actually spread all over the US, so google certainly can't use the one IP and think they are all from me, it must have something to do with cookies too.

    If there was a web page that all those users had to go to on a regular basis, but it had ads on it, and direct the ads at them, for the sales people, maybe ads on getting new leads, and so on. Then that would certainly be getting a lot of clicks.

    I bring this up because I have this opportunity, and 1000 computers/users is conservative, we all VPN into a corporate office, we all have a start page that has company info, links to email and so fourth on it.
