    I'm new to this too and I feel your confusion. I have read so much and I have so many programs/ebooks/courses, that it's all a bit of a blur. I'm now trying to weed through things and just find some focus. I did my first paid ad campaign today through facebook with two different CPA offers. Seven dollars total. I had one click through for .40 cents. So, I know I'm not there yet. I feel a draw to CPA ad's personally, but I just don't know what I'm doing yet. I also have adsense ads running through several of my web sites and have made a little over six dollars in two weeks. I'm also selling programs and some ebooks. Sold two ebooks in two weeks for a profit of about five bucks. I'm trying my ass off, but we have so much to learn. So, with all that said, from one noob to another, I think CPA offers are the way to go, but in reality, it's all about numbers and pathways. I think diversifying is the key to success. But for you and me, it has to be one step at a time until we know what we are doing. I know one thing for sure, we have found the right place to be!

    Well, since CPA and Adsense are quite different I would say CPA and here are the reasons why.

    First, you're not in with a company that is big and full of bullshit like Google.

    Second, CPA is more flexible and you can do a multitude of different projects.

    Third, I hate to know how many Adsense accounts I've seen people get banned by G's for stupid bullshit.

    Forth, I've seen bigger paychecks out of CPA than Adsense.

    Fifth, you can better control what you have on your website with CPA, plus with CPA ads you can have a selection of graphical ads.

    That being said if you plan on running Adsense compliant website it probably wouldn't hurt to go ahead and toss Adsense on your site, but I can honestly say I made more in one day with CPA than I did with Adsense over a period of a year...

    In my opinion adsense is much slower to get started that CPA. CPA you can make money fast

    You can get traffic from all sorts of sources with CPA. Some use craigslist, seo, twitter, ewhoring, or whatever to get traffic.

    Personally I just use SEO & Adwords.

    I second you on the whole "am lost", I am lost and am so not a newbie. It's just there are MANYYYYYYYYYY chances and MANYYYYYYYYYYY possibilities and nothing is more guaranteed than the other, I hope this will be resolved in our minds soon... I still would say go for both :)

    I'm trying to grasp the CPA method(s), but what seems to be my stumbling point is:

    A) What should a good landing page consist of?

    B) what are good techniques to get people to actually click through the ads?

    C) How to get good consistent, cheap or free traffic?
