That suggestion probably needs a disclaimer posted with it. Such as "read the June 1st, 2007 arbitrage threads on this forum before attempting"
Personally I've always thought the content of my site generates the targeted traffic.
I wonder if anyone has any reliable information on what percentage of advertisers track conversions via AdWords? Two points:
1. I opened an AdWords account a while back to learn a bit about that side of the equation. I wasn't offered, suggested, required, etc. to establish any conversion criteria. I don't even recall seeing it mentioned.
I could probably find it if I went looking for it, but that's not the point. How many other advertisers are not tracking converstions in a manner that AdWords has useful data from the process?
2. What about all the MFA sites? Are they tracking conversions? A site with nothing but more ads and links to page with still more ads - are they tracking?
I wonder if it helps or hurts a publisher to generate clicks for an advertiser that doesn't participate in converstion tracking? And if it hurts, how can you avoid those advertisers?
