My megasite is about 5 days from launch and I'm feeling pretty excited. I got to thinkin with the ol' noggin and I came up with a conclusion. See if you agree with me. Think about why people use adwords in the first place. Primarily because they hope the value of the visitor is worth more than what they are paying for them. So theoretically, THERE IS MORE MONEY TO BE MADE THAN ADSENSE IS PAYING. DEFINITELY! Someone out there thinks your visitors are worth quite a pretty penny So here's what I'm gonna do. Step one is to upload the site with adsense on it. (they owe me $70 and I just wanna get a check and cut them off). Step 2: Get that week's earning of adsense + affiliate combo. Step 3: Reupload my site with the adsense spots fully filled with my affiliate marketing tips with HOT marketing tactics. Use pictures, etc... Step 4: Compare week 1's earning with week 2's. I'm pretty sure (knock on wood) that week 2's earnings will be higher. It makes sense. Adsense really seems like a cop-out to me. Plus I just don't like google. Period. What do you guys think. I'll def. keep you guys updated.
