    im starting to realize that ad-sense is not the best way to utilize organic traffic...first off why the hell should i put up gads and let someone else get a sale or something think about it we are getting 20 cent per click but another person is making the big money..im still doing niche sites but promote products..i say ad-sense is good for keywords that don't have a product to promote it with and still you could find a product somewhere..

    if you're only getting $0.20 per click then you shouldn't.

    if you're using adsense you should be targeting keywords that have good PPC amounts. otherwise you should promote products like you say.

    Idon´t know what´s with good PPC amounts. Whatever the keyword tool says about click prices, Google always seems to find some 10-20 cent clicks for me.

    This depends on the niche you are targeting and if you have been smarted priced. Smart pricing occurs when your converts are not converting for the advertiser. Are you filtering out the low paying advertisers? If you want to pm me your site url, I will see if I can help you?

    I look at it this way. For every Adsense click @ 20c you will get paid, so it's guaranteed money in the bank. For every affiliate product click, depending on the merchants sales page conversion rate, you might only get paid once in maybe 100 clicks or even worse.

    So the affiliate commission needs to be at least $20 to match 100 Adsense clicks @20c per click.

    I promote some Clickbank products that have great conversion rates of 1 in 10 so they average over $2.50 per hop so Adsense is not even close in that case.

    But I have also promoted similar products that have a really poor conversion rate averaging just under 20c per click, so Adsense is on a par with them.

    It all comes down to which affiliate products you promote and what their conversion rate is. I use Clickbank Analytics to help me weed out the poor performers and replace them with better ones.
