Why I Hate Google Adsense

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by foldberg1, Jan 24, 2010.

    It's only worth it once you have enough traffic to generate atleast $100 a month.

    Once you can generate $100 a month you might as well remove the google ads and put up affiliate ads or montly billed advertisers in their place.

    Anyone else see this as an issue? Am I dead wrong? This is just based on my own personal experience with my sites.

    I'm actually still waiting to be approved or disapproved.. It has been just a little over a week now since I submitted my application.

    I currently run Clickbank ads on my site that look like they are actually part of the site and not just another text advertisement. I do fairly well with those, but want to see if adsense can pull in some more revenue.

    I will get back to you on this, but like they said above, do what's better for you.

    Adsense is a cash cow. It depends on who and how he is milking. That means it all depends on niche...

    AdSense is hands off approach. If you deal with individual advertisers, you have to manage adserver, deal with customers, payment processing, tax calculation, and much more.

    AdSense coupled with some high paying affiliate programs is most effective auto pilot money generation machine if you get lots of traffic.

    We all get this from time to time. I agree Adsense is a cash cow, you just have to learn how to milk.

    Do you think adsense would work good on a gaming site?

    as already said above i think to make good money depends on your niche too plus site traffic and in my opinion the average web user doesn't care much about those ads only if they are maybe are searching for something and an ad catches their eye

    Agreed. With Adsense I can set it up and forget about it, and the money keeps coming in even if I don't do anything for weeks.

    With affiliate programs and individual ads I constantly have to be monkeying with stuff, which takes time, and time is money.

    There are many webmasters who earn asmuch as $1000 or more per month from one site. Learn SEO to get more visitors and money.:)

    With my experience so far I have to agree with the thread starter.

    The first 100 are very hard to earn. Once you do though you're better off partnering with other ad agencies.
