    I'm sure this type of question has been asked countless times. The response is usually gold/silver or just keep your money because you'll end up blowing it. For starters, I recently purchased an adsense site on flippa and like a dumbass I used the sellers recommendation to drive adfly traffic to the site to make money. It makes an easy $40-70 a day but the banhammer will come soon and I've already accepted the fact that I won't see a single dime out of those adsense earnings.

    So with an adsense ban coming, I'm looking for something more along the lines of affiliate based websites or to monetize the site I just purchased with CPA offers. I was also thinking about purchasing a bunch of Amazon affiliate sites. So I'd get those up and running, see how they do, then flip or keep them depending on what happens.

    I'm not sure where to go from here. All I'm looking for is something stable that isn't dodgy or an outright scam. Any suggestions or advice?

    Hi, I have an affiliate program you can join although I'm not sure if links/advertisements are allowed in BHW rules

    Anyway, what makes you so sure the "banhammer" is coming soon?
    Never heard of Adfly personally...

    Hay OP, how do you drive traffic to adfly? Maybe I can help you not to be banned for longer time.
    What kind of program it is?

    Hmm, there's a market for Squidoo lenses? I'll have to do some research on that.

    At first, I didn't do any research about adfly with adsense. There's no definitive answer, but the general consensus on various forums is that driving adfly traffic to a site with adsense ads will get you banned. It's cheap traffic but I get clicks on the ads and the cpc is very high. It might slip past the Google bots and I may receive a check, but I seriously doubt it. I'll know for sure if I get a check at the end of next month or an email from google.

    I'm sorry, I didn't understand you, I thought you're driving traffic from your website to adfly working with them as a publisher.

    ^Yeah, you can sign up as an advertiser and drive traffic to your website using Interstitial or banner traffic.

    I'm really thinking about purchasing an amazon magento ecommerce store site from this seller: jaerehan

    Can't post links otherwise I'd link to his thread here on BHW.

    I would do KW research and buy lots of good content through one of these cats at BHW.

    So I went with the Amazon Magento store and will work on driving targeted traffic to that site in the coming weeks.

    The adsense account is still up with the finalized earnings about to occur on the 7th. I bet that the ban will come the week before I get paid. I'm thinking sometime within the last two weeks of June.

    Amazon is definitely a good way to go if you want something more legit and stable.

    Consistently performs all year round, converts incredibly well and you can look forward to decent bonuses in the last two months of the year when people buy more than the item you're promoting.

    Not sure how well Amazon works with automated content as that is not my area but unique, authority Amazon sites are simply awesome when they get going.
