I own a web/graphic design company and have a related website. I'm new and get around 1500 pageloads a month I have a number of content and portfolio pages.
Would it be a good idea to use Adsense on my website.
Does google have a specific policy for the kind of websites, specially B2B. What effect will it have on my website and traffic.
I am working on web a lot and surfing all kinds of websites, but when I see AdSense advertisement on Corporate sites (sales websites) I don't recive good impression about the site and their business.
It is just my opinion.
Definitely don't do it.
A. the ads will be for competitors, even in the vague sense
B. it makes you look unprofessional
C. you won't make much money from it.
RE: A) If done in such a way and the visitor is not interested and wants to leave and look else where, you could have it so they leave through an AD without breaking any rules.
RE: B) I dont think it does.
RE: C) He's just pulling answers from his hat now eh? :) hehe, You can make money from it, if you dont have the time to deal with all orders then this would be a good idea to half your orders. But, you could make more by getting more orders, get employee's pay them and make more that way.
My advice, test it - see the results and decide.

I have a friend with a design site and if we were to use his figures and averages as a basis for comparison, and remember that Google's Page Impressions may well be lower than your page loads, then you would probably expect to earn about $25.00 for the month.
Design a sepreate landing page with something free on that page, that is a great com-on (maybe some of your artwork for a desktop lets say, "Get a free desktop") and put the ads on that page. Then make a link to your home page from there and sell your design services through the back door.
You can also bring people for the freebie through adwords. This way you win both ways.
