I am setting a CMS managed site (Drupal) about a software product for a very tight and specific market. I want to set there a page with a tiny dayabase with links to related products, techniques, firms and the like.
My Adsense-wise question is: Do these kind of pages have sense from the click-paid advertisement point of view? Will (Might) this generate more clicks or will I be sucking myself potential clicks by serving links that in the end will be free clicks instead of Adsense clicks?
Do you have any opinion about this kind of pages? If so, any advice on how to face them?
(Background: the subsite pages form a reference handbook about using this piece of software and include examples of working techniques. It's a heavy duty industrial product for graphic arts)
My site is a directory and it has thousands of outgoing links. Using the ideas I learned from this group, my income has grown over the last few months to just under $100 per day from Adsense.
I struggle with removing the links and just having contact information. I'm sure that would increase my income becuase there would not be so many ways to leave my site. But I know that the reason I have the visitors I do is becuase they like what the site offers.
To increase my revenue, I'm adding new directory pages and working on ways to add content pages. I will also start looking at other income sources.
I've had good luck with my links/directory pages. Each category page has an explanation of what sorts of things are linked there and why you might be looking for them. Adsense does wonderfully on those pages.
