CPA or Adsense Sites - Which Is More Profitable

by Joel 9 replies
I'd like your comments on what is a more profitable way to spend your time:
a. creating & promoting niche CPA websites (for example, dating or fitness)
b. creating & promoting a niche wordpress site with adsense/amazon/clickbank ads (for example, dating or fitness)

Thanks!

Joel

    6 months ago: CPA
    Now: CPA
    Future: CPA

    Alright, I'm really into cpa and have earned almost all of my money from it, but still. If you want to make money from adsense (dont group that with clickbank please) you'll need to age a blog and have lots of content, eventually it can be a good autopilot earner. It's not hard to post once to your blog every day though so doing both isn't out of the question.

    That's like asking if it's more profitable to be a Doctor or a Lawyer :p

    There's definitely no right answer. There are plenty of people who make six figures and more with both of those models.

    The real answer is: what do you enjoy more? What excites you more? What do you feel more confident building? That's ultimately the most profitable one for you.

    This depends. You can earn with both. You need more traffic with Adsense. I actually use both techniques on the same site. And I do okay with both. With CPA on an information niche site you have to treat it like article marketing, but it works well at least for me.

    I would say CPA.
    CPA has a higher payout and if you choose the right offer the conversion is very high!

    This all depends on the amount of traffic that you have coming to your website and the type of content on your site. I would go with Adsense until you get enough traffic to make money off of CPA offers

    I always ask my friends this question..

    "If you see a $10 note and a $100 note on the street while you're walking, which one you will take?"

    Answer? I'm sure you know the answer well

      Actually, I'll take both.

    I think with the current state of Adsense, it's nearly impossible to make that much money with it (unless you have a site with super humongous volumes of traffic). I think CPA is far superior right now due to higher payouts and the fact that they convert really well. There's also different format you can use. You can link to the CPA offer through your content or have banners on your site leading to the offer.
