I'm planning on launching a new blog within the next month or so. Since there won't be enough traffic for the first couple of months, I don't foresee any potential interest in paid ads. I was thinking of adding affiliate links in place of ads. I was wondering if anyone finds that their affiliate links convert better than a paid ad. Is having an affiliate link instead of ad a better long-term solution for anyone here on the forum?
I've just heard of too many horror stories from people not getting paid from Google ads.
