    Hey guys,

    I tried with a niche site a while ago and failed. I think I'm going to try again and see how it goes. Last time I tried with Adsense niche site. This time I want to try something else; Amazon or CB. Cause for some reason Adsense keeps banning my account. I'm guessing, account banning/blocking is not an issue with Amazon or Clickbank?

    Which site would you guys recommend? Which works best for you? Which one has the best/easiest potential to make money?

    P.S. Whatever site I choose, I'll be buying it from one of the sellers here (recommend a seller too?). And then I'll be buying articles from over here as well.

    amazon is a LOT easier because everything there is long-tail. Like 1 link from PBN can rank it soooooooooooooooooo easily.

    adsense I tried it bleh, there are other publisher sites where you just use pounders and you can get more bang for the buck. Adsense is too over regulated to me.

    Clickbank - people like physical products rather than PDFs dont you find? Lose weight? Lets eat some pills than read a book!

    So your recommendation is to buy an Amazon niche site and forget about Adsense and CB? I was thinking about going for Amazon myself.

    I already mentioned in my OP that I'll be buying the site from one of the sellers here and then will be buying articles regularly. I have no skill.

    just don't if you don't know what you are doing, don't buy anything.

    Just learn first, don't waste money.

    Why not just do all 3.

    If you have a niche site, lets say "Vitamin D is an amazing supplement"

    Then what's the harm all 3.

    1) An Amazon link to some vitamin D supplements online
    2) A Clickbank Link to a product that goes into details about all the different vitamins
    3) Some google adsense ads that displays ads based on what the users been looking at.

    Don't think of each service as a competitor, do all 3. Although I will caution with Clickbank, I will promote at least one service their that provides recurring revenue, so you account is always in active status getting a payment.

    Can you get targetted traffic without getting your domain penalized by google

    If so CB is best
    If your nit so good at SEO
    Then amazon longtail keywords will work for you
    If you dont know why your adsense account is being banned then you cant fix it
    So forget adsense

    Depends on the content you want to write. Amazon is great for product reviews, while Adsense and Clickbank sites are generally more informational/guide based.

    All are good choices if you know what you're doing. You gotta know how to rank, how to write/buy quality content that will lead to conversions (If clickbank/Amazon).

    • Clickbank is great because commission is higher, and if you find a goldmine product that converts well and has monthly recurring subscription commission. The hardest part is finding a product that will convert.
    • Amazon is great because it's noob friendly. You can rank easily for long tail keywords and convert pretty easily if the content is good. The bad part about Amazon is the commission is low. So you either need lots of conversions, or lots of micro Amazon sites. If going Amazon route, I recommend reading Meatheads thread about Amazon sites.
    • Adsense is also good. You don't need to target any products, it can be purely an informational site, such as a health disorder, and viewers will usually click on the ads in hopes of finding more info about it. Bad thing about adsense is low competition keywords are low traffic, with decent CPC ($1-$10). So again, lots of micro niche adsense sites are needed to make a decent amount of money.
    My overall recommendation is to try all of them. Build 5-10 micro adsense sites. 5-10 amazon sites, 5-10 clickbank sites. Contrary to other recommendations here, I do not recommend combining adsense and Commission based monetization on one micro niche site. For instance, adsense + Clickbank or Amazon. Why would you want someone to click on an Ad that takes them off your page when you're trying to convert them into a sale ? (Commission > Adsense Revenue).
