    I decide by niche. If there's a good affiliates for the niche I am targeting I go for Aff. otherwise for adsense.

    What do you go for with a $10k product? 4% off Amazon or Adsense? Obviously the buying potential is very low, but $400 per sale or clickity clicks every day?

    One of my deciding factors is visitors location. For USA, CA, AU, UK, IE I go with cpa and sometimes I can mix it with adsense. For Asia and Europe just adsense.

    Do both. See how it tracks then test with just adsense, then with just aff. Results should tell you. Don't guess!

    If you can get away form google I would do that. They are being a pain here of late. I know several guys that have had accounts for years and google must be doing a sweep as there accounts were banned. They were not doing anything black hat and only making around 500 a month.

    I also got a notice on my account that i have had for years about something stupid and in the same email if I mess up again they would diable my account. what a bunch of crap when you have had an account for 4 years no issues ever and you goof one time.
