    The best way is using adwords traffic to build your list first.
    Then you promote your affiliate offers to the list.

    It'll convert better and secure your account to be suspended by adwords.

    I don't know why anyone would bother Adwords as a ad source is failing and will continue to. I never search a site from adwords, knowing the organic sites got their by posting great content. D

      There are millions that do click those ads. I get very targeted traffic whenever I promote my Amazon review sites with AdWords and I generally have very few problems getting approved.

      Hi D,

      That seems like a very silly notion to me. Google cannot exist without the success of AdWords. That is where they receive the bulk of their income and the only reason they can afford to operate their organic search. If Adwords fails, so does Google Search. Adwords has succeeded magnificently, and will continue to do so.

      As someone that does a good amount of AdWords advertising, I can attest to the success that it has brought me, and many of my clients. Generally speaking, traffic from Sponsored listings has much greater commercial intent than traffic from organic listings. In many cases the profits from sponsored listings exceed the profit potential from organic listings. The reason, I believe, is that people who click ads do so because they are considering a purchase. People who avoid clicking the ads often do so because they are not considering a purchase.

      Here is a statistic to ponder: 89% of the purchases from sponsored listings cannot be acquired through organic listings.

      There is only an 11% overlap in commercial traffic between those 2 channels. If you ignore sponsored listings than you are ceding all of that revenue to your competitors, how does that make sense?
