    Ok, I've just bought a new site that has around 1,000 indexed pages of all different type of products. I usually wouldn't go near sites with no unique content, but since the site was cheap (2 months of its last income - although it was Christmas so....) I bought it.

    Now, here's where I don't know what to do. The site makes money from sales of the products through an affiliate website. Would you recommend using adsense or is this too risky - no unique content (apart from the blog which has a little bit of unique content).

    I'm not too sure what to do to make the site better to be honest....all I can think of is adding blog posts, but will that really help my rankings that much (it's on a subdomain).

    Thanks

    This might be a bit White hat, but if it makes money what about buying some offsite advertising to drive more traffic? Or write some articles and post them to high quality sites in the niche with a link back to your site?

    if it does not have unique quality content, don't bother adding adsense, got a friend who was banned because of that

    David - yeah that's not a bad idea. The site is made up of databases and I know nothing about them so in leaving the site as it is! The site isn't an EMD though, but posting articles to sites like ezinearticles etc would boost my chances of people going to my site when they search for a specific product, right?

    Flx - thanks! Im not risking my Adsense account anyway! I want to keep that.
