More on the Death of Adsense!

September 15, 2006 by Chuck | 10 Comments

The other day I made a post about the Death of Adsense report.

I get a whopping 50cents if someone downloads it from my link! I doubt I’ll see a cent… there’s probably some minimum.

But the report is sure raising a stink.

Here’s what Jonathan Leger had to say… basically that it’s DEAD WRONG!

I like Jonathan’s products and blog but I notice that the guy he links to to refute the report makes his living (or part of it) selling “How To Make Money With Adsense”.

They’re criticizing the  Death of Adsense report  when really I thought  it was worth reading  (one of the Adsense Guru’s did too.)

My question is… how do they know if he didn’t have something better? They can’t because the author hasn’t released the 2nd part of the report yet.

What I’ve found is that nobody questions the reports premise. Advertisers can choose to pay virtually NOTHING for adsense clicks from a content site.

And the report writer admitted that he had made a bunch of junk sites receiving junk traffic.

I think the truth is this…

1. Lots of ADSENSE SITES DIED.

2. You had better LOVE your topic and produce a site people want to come back to get real Adsense earnings the way you want them.

3. But in case the advertisers reduce their fees per click to nothing, hopefully you have a back up plan. The fellow who generated millions and who wrote Quit Your Day Job doesn’t use Adsense… it’s all affiliate programs from what I can tell.

So…

4. If Adsense works for you, fine. If some day it all goes to dust, think ahead to have a back up plan!

    I read the report, too and can’t wait to read the 2nd part! I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn’t just another tired hyped up sales pitch selling me more crap “I have to have”.

    I think the big named gurus don’t want to talk about this too much considering there’s that “Adsense Templates” coming out next month. Which they’ll most likely be gearing up to help promote and make money from instead of Adsense itself.

    Like you, I thought this report is definitely worth reading!

    I think that you raise an excellent point about google. I am not going to debate on the issue of google but what I will say is that you offer excellent advice. Any person this world regardless of what they doing for a living or rely on to make money needs to know never to depend on one thing and have many different sources of income. There is an old adgage about not having all your eggs in one basket and that is true. If your websites only source of income is google ads then you need to sit down and think what do if google close tomorrow? I would advice that you at least 3 source of income for a website and alway be looking for others. If one well dries up then build another one.

    I agree that this report is interesting, but it really tells you nothing that you didn’t already know. Hopefully the next installment will be a little more forthcoming about how, if Adsense is so so dead, what’s alive and working…

    As for myself my Adsense revenue has never been better. It all amounts to how you put your site and its content together.

    If you use junk templates to throw together a few hundred website you’ll get the results you should expect, zilch. If you take the time to build unique content on a website you designed then you’ll have far superior results.

    I can’t wait to see what this Death of guy is hawking, you better believe at the end of this little game it won’t be cheap!

    There are already a lot of good ways to make money online that don’t involve Adsense.

    The “book” was a disappointment – 18 pages of nothing. How he made autogen sites and was disappointed that they didn’t earn big bucks. So he moved away now and found something else that surprise, surprise makes him tons!

    Based on his very poor understanding of the Adwords/Adsense model – I’m not agog for his pronouncements on other money making methods. But then maybe because I earn a six figure sum from Adsense myself I’m not “ready” for the secrets he’s willing to impart for….FREE

    Ya i agree with you that we have to have a back up plan…. Not only in adsense but in whatever we do in our life we should have a back up plan.

    One more thing, i think affiliate program is still relevence….
