    Hi! I'm new to this Internet Marketing thing and I'm willing to give it a go but I'm not sure about Adsense considering the following Adblock has. Any of you guys still monetizing with Adsense and if yes how are things going ? Has Adblock put a dent in your income?
    Thanks!

    From what I've read, Adsense revenue has been decreasing each year for a while,. I just read an article that showed that the amount of revenue shared with partners from 2005-2014, and the number dropped each year.

    On a positive note, I believe that the amount of people who use ad-blockers is under 40%. Plus many users are on mobile devices where it's somewhat difficult to setup ad-blockers.

    I just built a new site and added Adsense, but I'm considering other ways of monetizing my site as well, such as affiliate marketing and create content to sell.

    I don't see any reason to not use Adsense. Adsense has the largest range of ads to show (I think), which allows you to use it on some pages where you can't find other products or services to advertise. Plus, you don't want every page on your site to have an affiliate link or a product you're selling, but you can put Adsense links throughout your site without issue.

    I feel like the people who are using adsense are the people who would have absolutely refused to buy something from an online add anyways. There are millions of people out there allowing ads on the websites they visit, and those are the people who end up buying all of that crap anyways.

    You can get your site whitelisted for some adblockers if the amount of ads on your website is reasonable and not distracting.
    AdSense is probably one of the easiest ways to earn with a website and they have a great spectrum of ads, I like it.
