    Hi there.

    Okay, I have this whole structure of buyer intention keywords for the Amazon affiliate/review website. I am currently getting the content written for them and building the review website.

    But for sake of extra income, I thought, what if I also will maintain the blog on the website for the extra income and use my Adsense ads only on there? I can filter the ads to be shown only along the blog posts with more informational keywords, than buyer internt. So, basically, these blog posts will also generate money and also contribute to the ranking to Amazon review pages (with linking only, no product reviews on these).

    Have you done this before? If so, what are cons and pros?
    Please suggest if you have any experience
    thanks

    Target any one. If you are planning for affliate income, make sure your sitecis flawless. Having a lot of ads will decrease user experience resulting in higher bounce rate.

    Yes, you can. However, a review site will be taken more seriously if there are no or very less ads so you may be losing potential leads.

    It depends on the traffic. If it is an informational - educational niche i would suggest adsense.
    Otherwise it is a buyers intent keywords then amazon affiliate.
    However i would also suggest to stick with one.

    Thank you guys for your answer.

    Just to clarify, What I mean is that I will NOT use AdSense on any page that is having Amazon affiliate link.
    Adsense will be only used in the blog section of the website, which will be having the information articles around the same niche

    Will this structure work?

    Although I do not know your traffic i would suggest amazon. The reason is that if you add adsense on each click you basically redirect someone and you get the cpc (1,2$ whatever).
    But if the amazon products you are targeting have a big price then he commission would be bigger. Also usually they do not just buy only one product, leading to much bigger commission.

    What you could do is use Amazon CPM ads on your site. I use them on sites with AA links and I've found that it always does well. That way even if there's not a real degree of buyer intent, then it'll still get you some commission from the CPM ads. I have written a lot in the video game niche and promoted it on a lot of sites. With Amazon though, the comission is pretty poor for video games. However, since I'm getting in a lot of traffic, I'm getting money from the ads. If someone clicks on the link to my site to Amazon and they buy it, I get money. If they don't buy anything or click through to Amazon, I still get money.
