Google AdSense is great and all, but I’ve been using it for an undisclosed number of months, and I still haven’t gone past the $100 mark. I did spend a good number of hours early this morning to find alternatives to the AdSense model, but failed to find a service to my liking, except the Amazon Associates program. Since most of my existing ads focus on blog-related content, the Amazon link can easily attract photography enthusiasts’s interests.
To paraphrase a classic pinoy comedy line: Traffic is good, but cash is better
So, any advice? Feel free to comment 😀
UPDATE: Since SassLawyer sideblogged this entry, I re-evaluated how I just concluded that earning revenue is better than site traffic, and how bad-sounding it is 😕
Let me cite this though: site traffic is nothing if the visitors don’t close their browser tab without pondering on the content (or photo!) you’ve posted after reading/viewing it. Half of the traffic might even be sourced from those pesky online gambling idiots. If a blogger is already confident that he has a semblance of a relevant readership, that’s enough to be gratified. Only then should the blogger be concerned about profit Ha!
