Thanks to incrediBILL for another provocative but absolutely non-educational thread.
By definition, so-called adsense gurus only sell their eBooks or software - they do not make money using Adsense.
Since they cannot market their eBooks or software on webmasterworld, they obviously have no incentive to post there false advertisement here.
When Google started the Adsense program, thousands of happy publishers shared their happiness and their findings on how to get the most out of participating.
This has stopped - and the reasons are obvious to every single publisher who has been using Adsense from the beginning.
Ever diminishing revenues combined with an ever diminishing brand value of Google.
It actually has come to the point where quality publishers remove Adsense due to the negative image transfer - i.e. having Adsense on your publication becomes more and more an indication of 'low quality'.
As a quality, brand publisher you don't really want to associate yourself with Adsense anymore. Especially when direct advertisement sales awards you with 20 times the revenue.
