    I have set up an e-commerce website that would be run via a dropshipping arrangement. However, I aim to turn into a big portal, with lots of articles, blogs and probably even a forum. The idea behind the content is that it would bring traffic to the website. I have been wondering whether or not I should use adsense on the website, so that I can monetise the content.
    I aim to have two kinds of content on the website:
    1.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]My own articles, blog etc, that would be keyword specific and hence help build traffic to my store.
    2.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]Articles from free article databases, that would help monetise the traffic that the store would receive because of the keyword specific content.
    I am however not sure if adsense is a good idea on a E-Commerce website and would like to have your views on this. Should I get rid of adsense completely and just focus on product sales? Should I replace adsense with a commission based program where potential customers would at least not go to competition?
