---- Filter Your Traffic for Fun and Profit.

|If you're able to target a page to someone that has a high probability of buying, then why not cut out the middle man and sell your widget direct? |
You spend your time targeting 137 different types of widgets, and you've found it more profitable to just use AdSense than to try to cut/maintain deals with 137 different widget vendors.
You're actually competing with the guy who makes the widgets, and he hasn't yet figured out that you're making money and gathering market data by selling his widgets via the AdSense middle man.
You used to sell the widgets direct, but the widget maker stiffed you one too many times on payments, so you would now rather take less money from AdSense than deal with the widget maker.
Transactions with the widget maker are taxed differently than AdSense, due to the vagaries of type of business and city/county/state tax laws, ending up in making the lower payments of AdSense more profitable.
