My tourist site is doing well with google adsense, as well as a few other sites. They find me by articles I write with adsense in mind.
I often write about products, so the ads show those, and they click on the ads. However I also have many affiliate sponsors I belong too.
I could make pages of the items these stores have right in my own site, making a store inside. Once they click on the items it takes them to that site and product page, like Amazon.
However if I do that they will not click on the adsense ads. So, what would be better, have no store items and hope they click my adsense to find them, or have the products right in my site but don't get as many clicks on the ads?
If they click the ads I get paid no matter what. But if they leave my site by clicking a product in my site and don't purchase anything I make nothing. Thoughts?
Maybe for the 'store' ads, whether they're text ads or banner ads, you could have a new tab or window open when someone clicks on these ads.
[I believe the HTML for that is: target="_blank" in the link that goes to the sales page in question].
That way your current site page is still available by selecting the previous tab or other window. If they're not interested in the product, they can just close that tab or window and be back at your current page.
You could also place these banner ads near the most relevant part of the articles. This may entice enough interested viewers to click on the ads, where they might not otherwise. Google isn't the only one that likes relevance.
Every web site is a work in progress. You should try anything and everything...test, test, test.
Hope that helps.
Thanks. I make sure all links on my sites open in a new window, always. But even then sometimes they go and click off yours if they think the new window is what they want.
On the one hand, if I do it right a store page will give my site that much more key words to work with. I could even put adsense in the store pages I suppose.
Guess It's something everyone has to decide on their own. Thanks again.

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

I have my home page set to my Orlando tourist site, so I see it hundreds of times a day. The two big Google adsense ads on my home page normally show Disney and Orlando vacation image ads.Sometimes if I have been working on my pet site, they will show pet ads. This past few weeks I have been...

Is google adsense only paying for clicks and not impressions? My adsense earnings have almost gone down to nothing. Has anyone else experienced this?

Okay, I just signed up like two seconds ago, and I am seriously confused. I can figure it all out (I think for the most part) on my own, once I get reading into everything, but I have one major question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere.Do I have to have a google adsense account to...

I've heard people talk about turning off Adsense to earn more from the Hubpages program, but I'm really confused about how this works. Does HubPages pay better than Adsense? I thought Adsense was required to make money on HubPages and the two incomes were added up in your daily earnings. Can...
