    Which is a better way to monetize a website: pay per click program or an affiliate link like Amazon?

    I have started a new website all about saving money and working from home. I haven' advertised it yet because I want some content on there so no one really even knows it exists! I would like to monetize it and eventually sell my own e-books from this site. But writing that e-book is 6 months to 1 year away, so I want to monetize it with something else that will bring in some money before the official book launch. Do you think I am better off to go with a pay per click program, or an affiliate program like Amazon or Walmart where I would have specific ads for products? Thanks in advance!

    Why not both? Using both would clearly be the superior thing. Not every single page would likely be the best place to have an amazon link, but every page could have adsense. When you post a page where you talk about a product, that page could and should have an amazon link and the adsense adverts.

      Thanks for your response Wesman Todd Shaw but I also want to sell my own e-books and I think having 3 different type of ads would commercialize the site too much.

      Could you sell them on amazon.com?
