    I trying to decide which to do, both have advantages.

    I think with your advice I might be able to split them at least for myself.

    Backlinking is a lot work now especially as the auto methods are devalued but it is similar for both types of site and is the biggest consumer of time and money.

    Adsense I suppose converts better the return is much much lower often less than a $1 that being the case isn't it better to do affiliate? You need huge visitor numbers to make good $ with adsense but fewer for aff.

    So what do you think effort for effort Adsense or Aff?

    I guess it all depends on your site, if the traffic is very targetted and you find suitable products to use as affiliate links I would go that route, but if its a huge traffic site with a more broader audience then adsense would be better. I am still fairly new to all this but that would be my opinion anyway.

    its very hard to comment. If you have a lot of traffic i guess adsense makes your life easier. but if your working with a targeted crowd then your better off with affiliates and cpas. But for huge traffic cpa also works.
