I am an LLC. It is a smart thing to do, just because of liability and the stupidity of the internet. All it takes is one frivolous lawsuit.
If you are saying you should have an LLC so you can have 2 AdSense accounts, I believe that is not policy compliant. I might be considered a wuss to follow the rules of Adsense, but I will state again that AdSense is a golden goose. I will not risk killing it by keeping multiple accounts just for the sake of a backup plan. If you are policy compliant, the risk of blowing up your account is minimal.
I have tested affiliate links. Way back in the day (in internet terms), I use to be quite the arbitrageur with other sites so I was very intimate with affiliate stuff.
I tested it and, again, in my niche, it just does not do as well as Adsense. I know others who have much better returns with affiliate links in other niches. But in mine, they just don't work well. But they are part of my "catastrophic income drop plan" should that occur.
