I actually show ads (text and graphics) and the search box.
Some 80% earnings comes from ads, the rest from google search. I didn't tried already other ways to get incomings from Adsense but I think I still have to try:

The Firefox buttons
The Adverstise in Adsense buttons
The Links Blocks (don't know the exact term)
Any other am I missing perhaps?

What works for you?
Where does your Adsense incomings come from?

Nearly all of my AdSense revenue comes from content ads.

Search has extremely high CTR and eCPM, but not too many of my readers use internal search.

I don't use any of the other AdSense products (AdLinks, etc.).

Well its pretty obvious that most of it comes from Ads. Though for some , a large percent also comes from the search toolbar. Never tried other options.

I try any new product when it comes out and give it a few days trial of a minimum 50,000 page impressions, if it's not deriving any income nor performing well, it's removed.

All I use is a leaderboard and an Adlink unit, 40-50% of earnings are from Adlinks except on a few niche sites where it's up to 73%.

I tried search before and it didn't work for me. I am giving it another run though, and i wonder if in time it will pick up, as people get used to using it via the sites.

Adlinks have been great for me. I use the 160x90-4 link style.

I have found that search brings me next to zero, whilst referals are the same.

On one site, about 50% from horizontal AdLinks, the other 50% from conventional Adsense ad blocks (wide skyscrapers and vertical banners). Nearly zero from Google search boxes.

On another site, of total Adsense revenue, 90+% from horizontal AdLinks, less than 10% from conventional Adsense ad blocks (skyscrapers). I make as much or more from affiliate programs other than Adsense (Amazon.com, etc.).

On a third site, about 20% from Adsense banner ads, the other 80% again from horizontal AdLinks.

AdLinks are great for me.

In [google.com...] are the correct names ;)

Are you referring to those in "Link Units" and "Themed Units" when you talk about Ad Links?

What I use are those above (text ads).
Is there any way to show both text ads and Ad links? (I noticed that you have a radio button to opt for one kind or another and you can't pick both...
And I think you can't have 2 adsense accounts...
Am I right?

Yes. I believe you're allowed one Link Unit per page in addition to the three allowed text Ad Units.

Just select the radio button for Ad Units, copy and paste that HTML to your web page, then select the Link Unit radio button. This will update the box with the HTML code, so you can then and copy paste that HTML to the place where you want the Link Unit on your web page.

And I think you can't have 2 adsense accounts... Am I right?

You're right.

When first introduced, they were referred to as "Ad Links".

Although "link units" is now the preferred term, there are still references to "Ad Links" in various official Adsense Help pages.

Old habits die hard. I still usually refer to "Ad Links".

Virtually all comes from ads. I tried the referrals and they were a waste of time so got zapped. I do use the search option, but only because I used to have Google site search anyway. This way I get a few additional bucks per month out of it. I have experimented with adlinks, and they actually work quite well on some pages ads don't

100% from AdSense Ads...

In new site design I plan to implement AdLink on footer and in main menu... Maybe search also.

80% ads, 20% search, 0% everything else

Actually my site needed a seach engine badly. Having a 60,000 page site the free PHP indexing scripts just didn't cut it and I didn't want to purchase a Google search appliance.

And then I came across AdSense for Search - perfect!

1) Users can search my site
2) It's free and a lot better at searching than any PHP script (obviously, it's Google)
3) I make descent money off of it

[google.com...]

Do I understand correctly?

AdSense publishers are paid for clicks on the ads that are linked from link unit topics, but not for clicks on the initial topics themselves. The ads on the linked page are pay-per-click Google ads similar to those shown in regular AdSense ad units.

Does that means that clicks on links that the adlink shows does not generate earnings?
Do they pay you for the click produced on the common ad, in the page where the click in your adlink made the user land, on other website?

right. adlinks essentially show categories of ads, when a visitor clicks on an ad category there is no charge, they are then presnted with a google page of ads for that category, if they click on the ads there you get paid.

So it seems that Adsense search is not worth the time.

Where are you guys putting the search box?
