I have read and heard AdSense referred to as the latest fad which won't last. That may be true, but think about it.
As long as there are people who want to promote their sites with AdWords, there will be AdSense.
Plus, it is the AdWord users that set the price we receive per click through good old fashioned bidding.
For AdSense to die, all bids would have to cease which I cannot see happening. Soooooo, AdWords guys are happy since it is a product where they decide the price. WE are happy because AdSense is a great supplemental income. And Google is the most happy since they take a piece of everything.
In a way, Google is becoming a Monopoly.
This, I believe, is the one nitpick most affiliates have with the great and mighty G. They don't tell you how much each click is worth. It's one of those things you have to accept or not accept. They'll tell you in the report how much you made from how many clicks, but as to what got clicked, how much per click -- it's all a big mystery. G won't tell anyone. You either have to roll with it, or buck the system. And it's way too profitable to buck IMO.
