Certainly some good advice. For years selling ads yourself and/or individual ad brokers were the only way to go. AdSense has two advantages: It's easy and, in topics that people want to buy ads for, it does pay well. But for many unfocused blogs or blogs focuse don low-pay subjects it is less than worthless. There is absolutely no reason the average blog could not sell their own ads ... _if_ there is content that attracts businesses who wnat to advertise for customers.

Kevin - Yikes! Although, I suppose that was almost to be expected. Poker sites aren't a massive step away from casinos, and casinos sure do know how to make their money... ;)

Adsense is all about your blog's topics. Blogging tips is right up there with hamster mating as far as low-paying adsense niches. So for you, on this site, I'd say go private ads / text links all day long. Once the PR update hits ( Your Alexa rating is already fantastic ) you'll be able to pull in some very solid cash in those Areas. Adsense has nothing for you.

Michael - Wioth regards to minimum payout, adsense is not too bad compared to other advertising networks. I checked a poker affiliate account last week and saw that I have over $100 just sitting there. I emailed them asking why It wasn't being paid out and I was told the min payout was $150! Tom - If I had known adsense would have converted so badly for me, I wouldn't have added adsense to blogging tips. $35 in 2 months is a slap in the face as far as I'm concerned. Your 100% right, our goal should be securing long term readers :)

I was accepted for Yahoo Publisher Network, but haven't tried it out yet. Maybe this is a good reason to try.

Your last point about using the space on your own pages to promote your site, is very wise. Especially for a site that is relatively new, most monetization strategies will suck early on. Promoting the features on your site to whoever does find you will give a lot better long term return. Too many of us are worried about our $1 of revenue today, when we should be worried about securing long term readers. That's my opinion anyway Thanks Tom

I use Adsense for the exact same reason. I'm thinking about removing it now because it can be downright ugly. The annoying thing about it is the high minimum-payout. I have $25 with Adsense from another site I used it on at one point. It would be a shame to abandon Adsense and just give Google that money... :(

Great points about Adsense. I have made more money from Auction Ads than Adsense but Adsense has been on the uptick for me over the last two weeks. I have Bidvertiser on another blog and it earns more per click but less than adsense overall. I have a new Azoogle affiliate banner that is getting a good click through rate but if it doesn't start converting soon I am going to replace it.
