About $1K per day. Not as good as affiliate marketing, but a nice supplemental for very little!

Pardon?

I don't which calendar you use but there certainly are not 500+ days a year in mine even though I could do with them!

$0 - I use my own search engine script with regular AdSense blocks on the results pages. The difference in payouts is amazing...

I make pretty much nothin from it, but its only on a forum I am intergrating it into my new layout I will be making. For the actual site part of my site.

I made about $20 per month on search but only place it on the main page.

Any downsides to including it or is it a no brainer that you should have it on your site?

I had it on my sites for a couple of months.
Under $20 per month.
Deleted them and replaced them with adlinks.
Now get hundreds of dollars monthly from the adlinks.
Best change I ever made in my sites.

Unfortunatelly, I only get ~2000 page views a day .. I really need better marketing.

Yes, I certainly do.

By replacing the space used by the search box with the vertical AdLinks block I increased the CTR tremendously and the CPC is better (in my experience).

This may not work for everyone but for me it did.

Well, I provide internal search as a service to my readers, so replacing it with AdLinks wouldn't make sense. (I might consider using AdLinks elsewhere on the page for other reasons, but that's a whole 'nother issue.)

EFV if you haven't tried Adlinks you really should give them a test run. It's hard to overstate how well they perform on some pages.

Right now if I had to give up regular text ads or the Adlinks it would be no contest. The Adlinks would win by a mile.

I'll be doing some layout juggling soon, and I'll probably try AdLinks at that time. (Gotta change my old-style display banners to 160 x 600 skyscrapers--apparently some of the big ad agencies are moving excusively to the IAB's "universal ad package," which doesn't include the classic 468 x 60 size.)

I thought AdSense TOS says "no unit in search result pages", meaning anything but on Google Search.

I use my own search (built on htdig) so I can run Amazon links matched to the search terms - that's clearly more useful for my readers (and my overall Amazon income is nearly three times my total AdSense income).

Anyone have an opinion as to which performs better on article pages -vertical or horizontal?

My, my, results do vary a lot.

We've been in Adsense for 13 months, and our total "search" income for that time has yet to reach the average earnings from "ads" for just one day! And our "adlinks" have generated only 25% of the value of search income!

There may be a degree of chicken and egg, here, but search and adlinks are not a central part of our Adsense strategy. We tried giving them prominence in the past, but quickly found the results to be vastly inferior to straight ads.

We've had Google search on our site since day one and the results vary from month to month. Currently we're pulling about $100 per month depending on search terms. We used to have FreeFind which was a great search function although the only problem was they keep all the ad revenue generated and they give you the search function for free. I'm always whining about the options Google gives for search functions and I'll take the opportunity to do so here again! Choice of 3 background colors is appalling. Premium publishers have the privilege of customizing their search box to blend into their site.

Google says the reason they will not extend this privilege to small publishers is to keep their brand/logo/box intact. This argument is valid only if applied across the board. I may not be running the New York Times site but I too, want my site to look professional. I still believe the search function is a highly overlooked revenue generator, at least for large sites. We have the search box buried at the bottom of each page since it is so ugly and large and it cannot be incorporated seamlessly along the top row with our navigation. Probably the low returns among the publisher network with much higher revenues generated with AS is the reason why Google doesn't want to bother promoting their search for sites. At least let us change the background color? Pretty Please?

You can pick your own colors now. It's a recent change. :)

My monthly average search earnings will buy one meal at a not too fancy restaurant. Not great, but it helps.

AdLinks runs about 1/3 of total earnings. I've tried them both horizontally and vertically and don't find much of a difference in performance either way.
