The bottom line is it doesn't matter what advertising method(s) a site uses. Traffic is the factor which determines whether someone can make money off of advertising or not. That, of course, is where the "original" Google (Google as a search engine) comes into play for most sites. Well, yes - Bing and the others like DuckDuckGo come into the picture. But - At least in my situation Google is the main search engine which sends my sites traffic.
