I know it sounds crazy to you but I am considering turning my adsense off. Although I joined in November Christmas was an Amazonian surprise!
Total items shipped 988
TOTAL EARNINGS *$1,467.05
My adsense earnings during that time were about $180. - That might seem like a lot, but sometimes I feel like if you are focusing in on Amazon earnings rather than adsense, that adsense might just be a distraction to your customer or even an over-bombarded reason to leave my page(too many ads). There were many times when a click away from my page was probably not worth the money I get from google as well. My ECPM is $3.57 since I started. How do I analyze this?
Are you serious? I only had one order for a book that cost $12 .
That is so awesome and congrats on a great payout.
the sitewide average per click adsense vs amazon is greatly skewed towards adsense.
But such an average could no way promise what your personal returns would be.
If you wanted to focus on amazon and still have adsense on then you could just design your page in such a way that the adsense modules were pushed lower on the page and use the "sweet spots" for amazon modules.
rather than read a-z and the bbc and the other various robotic suggestions from above, just experiment with your layout and you will find a middle ground that highlights what you want w/o allowing adsense to detract or distract
I really think you need to figure out how much you made per click through Amazon and compare that to AdSense before you turn anything off.
I made quite a bit off of Amazon in 2010 -- about the same as AdSense in fact. But when I compared the two on a per-click basis, AdSense paid me almost twice per click what I made from Amazon.
And I wouldn't bet the bank on Amazon either. As states begin to pass these Internet sales laws, Amazon is dropping all affiliates there. It's happened in North Carolina, Rhode Island, Hawaii, etc.
If you read the rules for turning off AdSense you will see that to do so you must not have any outgoing links to any commercial site or concern. That would include Amazon.
I suggest you read the FAQ and TOS.
@ Relache - Thanks that's very interesting, although I can't imagine that if it benefited both me and HP that it should really be a big deal, but I didn't realize that was part of the TOS.

I have heard that one's earnings has to reach a threshhold of $100 before he gets paid by Google Adsense. Does that mean that if you have two Hubpages accounts linked to Adsense your earnings in each account must reach $100 ($200 in total) before you are paid? Or will Adsense pay you when your...

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is well written and informative. I kept hoping as I got more readers, the money...

I wrote a few articles that I posted and earned ad earnings (Ad Earnings Only). I'm thinking about increasing my earning potential in 2016 with more informational articles: (health, recipes, how to's, and etc.). I'm also thinking about adding Amazon and Google Adsense. However, I haven't posted...

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google Adsense. The question is, do I have to do anything to add Google Adsense to my...
