I'm debating on whether or not to add Adsense ads to our site which features links to sites we are affiliated with. We currently receive all visitors via PPC, and push the traffic to the sites we are affiliated with.

I'd like to know the experience of others who have this type of site and use (or have used) adsense. Do you lose affiliate revenue by displaying adsense banners, or do you see an increase in overall revenue?

Just trying to weigh whether or not to push both, or just stick with affiliate sites.

Thanks.

Fred,

LOL, asking people what they sell is a big no-no on this board. Nobody is going to give out that information.

Fred:

understandbly even if anyone knew, it would be courtesy to keep it aside from the conversations. Why?... if you ever find a product that makes you $200/day, do let me know, so I can do the same thing and compete with you :)

I don't need Viagra, I can do just fine on my own.

oh, you meant, selling the product?..;)

I wouldn't want to go into meds/pron or gambling...no offense, but those markets tend to be full of shady people. So I should have phrased, "if you ever find a product thats not adult/meds/gambling that you're pulling off $200/day, let me know".

Great, the secret is out! I have the number one kitty litter review site on the net. If you outbid me, I will have to start cloaking. ;-)

Dear KellyandSummer,

Look like you are very successful in PPC. Have you ever try any other PPC SE like FindWhat & etc.

Best rgds.

Eugene,

In our experience, the traffic from other PPC search engines besides google and overture is minimal, and lower quality. I do know some people that make a good ROI on them. However, I'm talking more like spending $1 per day to make $5 per day. Nice ROI, but low volume.

Looking at my 2004 website income:

61% Subscriptions
33% Adsense
3% Amazon Aff
2% Other/Misc

So basically, Adsense is pretty darn good and a good way to supplement your website income.
