    Hello,

    I have started my first niche site on my own. I have other established sites I have purchased, but I have never actually created a site from scratch. My only monetization methods for this website are Adsense and Amazon affiliate products. Mainly adsense. I have been reading up on Adsense, and it seems like it isn't a very secure stream of income. I've heard of accounts getting banned for no reason. Is there good money to be earned, or should I not pursue Adsense at all?

    Thanks in advance.

    Adsense is just as insecure as Amazon, if you don't play by the rules, they will both ban you sooner or later.

    It depends on your niche, really. Not every niche is for Amazon, not every niche makes sense to monetize with Adsense.

    I think that if you play by their rules you should be fine with either one

    Amazon is a bit easier than adsense though.

    Like moabaer said play by the rules and you will be fine.

    I'd also like to advise that you pick either amazon or adsense and optimize your site based on that choice. Start small and keyword research is your biggest issue with these types of sites.

    For Newbies or starters Adsense is best, as it's bit easier as compared to other methods.

    There is absolutely no secured payment online. There is no payment portal that promises never to banned your account permanently, it's a risk

    If the traffic being sent to your website is primed to buy what they are looking for, you will make a lot more money with Amazon.

    If not, Adsense is the way to go. There is no other advertising network that pays anywhere close to adsense.

    Adsense generate good income for general untargeted traffic, but if you target the right niche you can make a lot more with other platforms or other payment methods like PPL or PPS

    Adsence worth it, one min just shinning my 7th car.booking a hoilday 9 th one this year , yee adsence is the best my eyes

    Of corse adsence is worth it, you got to learn how to get the cash but beleve me the sky is the limit....

    Google got millions but google needs millions also spent in advertising that where adsence comes in there millions for everyone.

    The net full of millions from adverts from google so google needs good adsence website to get them advetisers seen .

    Adsense can be a good stream of income only if your site gets a lot of traffic.
    But if you're in a niche market, try to directly contact an advertiser. the pay is usually much higher that way.

    There is a lot of methods to earn money, you can choose the method which is more convenient to you and your niche site. But make sure your site has the good amount of organic traffic. Either Adsense or Affiliate, if your site is worth then you can earn money from it.
