Is CPA a good compliment to Adsense?

12 replies
Right now I am using Adsense and Infolinks (although the latter has sucked lately), but I'd like to get a good 3rd network for my blog. CPA seems like a good option, and I have a pretty good understanding of my demographic, but I never really know what sites to push.

So my questions.. .

1) Is CPA is a good compliment to Adsense?
2) Which CPA networks have top notch affiliate managers as well as marketing tools?

Bonus question

3) Does anyone know how to maximize Infolinks? My 'ad views' to 'page views' ratio dropped significantly recently, but even when views were high, I wasn't very impressed with the CPM.

Thank you!

    Well, it's simply another way of making money online...

    So yeah, it can be a good compliment to Adsense.

    Why not do both and see which one provides a better profit?

    It's not really whether it's a good compliment to AdSense, it'e whether or not you can successfully make money from CPA using your blog. Assuming you can, it should be pretty easier once you find the right offer.

    Good CPA networks include: MaxBoutny, PeerFly, NeverBlue, AdScendMedia

      Thanks. Anyone have a #1 preference with any of them? Looking for top notch support, because I'd like a manager to monitor things and suggest new offers, etc.

    Hey the best person to ask that question about CPA and adsense would obviously be your affiliate manager in whichever networks you're in because all CPA networks have different rules, and you wont want to ruin a good campaign by having unnecessary clashes

    Maxbounty, peerfly, adsimilis, cash network, commission junction just to name a few........do some research as well

    hope this helped....my 2 cents

    Also, about infolinks. I recently dropped InFold, and not surprisingly my CPM went up, but my Ad Views dropped significantly.

    What are some of the better customized options with them?

    ie, # links per page.
    Color of link. Should I match my theme, or make it stand out?
    Single or double line. Again, match theme, or maybe stand out?
    Infold/Intag/InFrame/InScreen?

    Thanks everyone

    IMO, when done properly, you can often make much more with CPA offers than adsense.

    I actually prefer CPA as a form of monetising existing traffic as the ROI is generally higher - but ONLY if you really know your own traffic, the demographics and it's behaviour.

    Personally I found anything high-end that pays per lead is always best, such as real estate, insurance, loans, debt or investment enquiries. These have generally speaking quite a high CPL rate which can top adsense or other forms of "per click" earnings.

    Hope that helps

    CPA is a good source of making money. In my opinion you can make even more with CPA then Adsense.

    CPA is better than opportunity than AdSense, consider the value chain on the Attached Image. AdSense is the lowest earning entity.

    Considering joining a network? then join Blackfox Performance Network that has 1600 good offer you can promote, pays on time and totally legit. Just head to the signup page since that link is not referral.
