There are times Google's heralded ad
affiliate program isn't in
your long term business interest. Oh no I said it!
AdSense isn't the unstoppable revenue engine for every
eBusiness. Before I am taken out and flogged by the
pundits -- please let me explain what I mean in my defense.
I make revenues from AdSense at a very high click-through
I experience high click-through rates with AdSense without
resorting to questionable tactics like tricking site users
photos (the AdSense trick and tip dujour).
So my perspective is from one who has made decent income
AdSense to fund aspects of his business like advertising
seminars -- and outsourcing to his virtual assistants. Yes,
AdSense is a legitimate and significant revenue source.
evaluate AdSense with some type of balance.
By now you may have heard about people like Joel Comm's six
figure income with AdSense, or Jason Calacanis of Weblogs
on his way to generating 1 million dollars in AdSense
Google's Ad revenue sharing affiliate program for publishers
certainly seems to be an eSales Nirvana for many webmasters.
But there are obvious and not so obvious times not to use
AdSense ads on your sites. Let's list - examine - and
~~~~> 1. On Sales or Mini-sites
This is a no-brainer. If you are trying to sell a particular
product that is important to your bottomline, you don't want
AdSense ads distracting your customers from either joining
email list, or hindering your site's online sales process.
However I do see hybrid sites that are mini-sites or full
eCommerce sites, with AdSense at the bottom of their pages.
This might not be so bad since only 1% - 15% of your site
visitors will either buy from you or fill out a form.

If your livelihood depends on search engine optimization
marketing for a living you might want to think twice

In fact I noticed that there were no sites with AdSense

very few of them in the top 5 pages).
I knew it was strange to not have AdSense ads on the top
Internet marketing sites. This prompted me to scan other
industries where I noticed the same trend.
Many of the leading SEO gurus have sites that have been
from the top listings by the search engines. It seems
visible you become, the more of a target your sites are
search engine auditors.
Some of my sites are still on the top of MSN with AdSense
but that doesn't mean they won't also be targets in the
Let's face the facts. MSN and Yahoo! have competing ad
to Google's, and this competitive situation is rife for a
potential backlash against SEO sites with AdSense ads.
Many SEOs will point to exceptions to this position. However
you have been warned!
Think about it, how long will MSN and Yahoo! sit back and
SEO driven websites use their search indexes to fund Google?
Did you know SEO in MSN and Yahoo(!) --- is much easier to

~~~~~> 3. When AdSense Becomes Your Only Business Model
When you become so myopic in your thinking that you build
business solely on AdSense revenue -- think again my friend.
Why build a business solely on the largess of Google?
I don't know if your realize it or not, but the sites making
real big AdSense money usually have a following that doesn't
depend on the search engines. Internet mavens like Chris
Pirillo or Joel Comm have been on the Internet a while and
followings for their websites. Therefore they can
make six figures with AdSense.
These content powerhouses are an asset to Google and not the
other way around. But do you think Google is going to sit
and watch just anybody make big bucks off of their top
If you do a search on most keywords you will notice many of
top ranking sites are news sites, .gov sites, or .org sites
these days. The only exception is in industries where these
sites don't really exist like eCommerce industries
No doubt in most industries you will notice a conspicuous
scarity of AdSense sites in the top rankings. In other words
don't bet your future fortunes on AdSense.
An IPO based on projections of AdSense revenue isn't in the
future for the average eBusiness. Think of Google AdSense as
supplemental income. Building a business solely on AdSense
revenue isn't just silly -- it's just plain stupid.
