CPA is where the money is at? Not adsense?

    I read many success stories on this forum and most of them are using CPA/affiliate programs or selling their own software/ebook. Unfortunately, I am new to all that and I only have one established site with adsense on it.

    Should I be focusing on driving a lot of traffic to my website to try to increase my earnings from $6/day to $20-30/day or should I devote my time in learning how to earn from CPA programs? It looks like may can earn $100-$300/day with CPA programs?

    Where are all the adsense success stories?

    you could go either way really, in most cases a beginner would be able to generate more revenue in CPA vs. Adsense at the starting stages since all you need is one conversion on a decent offer (can pay anywhere from 50-100+ depending on the offer terms)

    adsense starts off a lot slower but begins a snowball effect once you build more sites. there is no right answer to this, choose your weapon and start grinding.

    I see. I think the main thing is I hate taking the responsibility of running multiple websites. I can't multi task like some people do. Like when playing World of Warcraft, I like to focus on one character only while other players like to focus on 3-5 characters and watch each one grow. I don't know why I'm like this.

    I put so much time into this one site I am now focusing on SEO so I can rank up certain keywords and make more. However, I don't think I can make 100-300 a day with adsense with the keywords I am focusing on now. Maybe 20-44/day if I'm lucky and get ranked top 3 for them.

    Why not do both? Get some high paying relevant adsense on your site and also throw up a targeted CPA banner or 2. Test out a few different things, that's the best way to know what works and what doesn't.

    I make a lot more in CPA compared to adsense but I do them both.
    You can make money in both, so its better if you do both IMHO.

    It completely depends on the niche and keywords your targeting. For example, I have some sites in some niches that are composed of predominantly teenagers who lack credit cards and probably spend all their money on World of Warcraft, so Adsense is better for me in that niche simply because the CPA offers won't convert well. On the other hand, if you are targeting keywords like "buy affiliate dot com" or "traffic voodoo review", using Adsense instead of a CPA offer would be unbelievably idiotic! So you have to decide based on your niche and keywords. But overall there's no reason you can't use both
