Can You Really Get More For Your Clicks Than Those Miserable Adsense Cents

by Christopher Kyalo


The truth is that Adsense blinded us all for a very long time from opening our eyes and seeking other opportunities. Nobody wanted to heed the warnings or seriously read those Adsense-bashing articles that spilled the beans.

Part of the reason was of course the fact that it was so easy to make money with Adsense. You just blogged and did your stuff and meanwhile somebody was paying you. It just took the imagination and the breath away, even from those who were not making much.

Yet even Adsense management themselves warned that nobody should start a site or blog solely for the purpose of making Adsense money only. It is still in their terms and conditions only that it is not only ignored but there is a whole huge industry of junk sites created solely for the purpose of generating Adsense clicks. Incidentally, could these latest developments be part of Google's plan to deal with this annoying industry of junk spam sites mainly fueled by it's own Adsense program?

Actually this so-called death of Adsense thing is a blessing in disguise because it has helped open the eyes of many folks who are not in junk sites to lucrative new possibilities including the writer of this article.

Let us for a moment ask ourselves one question. Is it worth giving away those valuable leads for a couple of single digit cents? You work hard to generate traffic to your site, and put in a lot in all the other chores that enable that valuable lead to arrive at your site and click at some Adsense ad. Your reward for the effort? 4cents? 8 cents?

One alternative are CPA networks where you can end up making $10 or more for a single click through or even $70 if they end up buying. That's really something for a click don't you think? What are CPA networks?

CPA stands for cost per action. This is a form of affiliate marketing with a difference. Instead of being paid for a sale, you get paid every time a site visitor fills out and submits a form after clicking through to the landing page from your site. It is as simple as that. What you are actually doing here is generating leads. Leads can be very valuable to any business and this is why some of them are prepared to pay such a high price for them.

Making money here is very simple if you choose to promote offers that are as closely related to your content as possible. This is because chances of the person being interested in taking action and downloading a special report or whatever action (which will cost them nothing) needs to be done are very high.
