I will Rather blog Free than to monetize my Website with AdSense (Says SEUN)

Few days ago a friend was asking Me to show him how to make money online so i recommended AdSense having gone through his blogging niche and the kind of traffic he gets.

To my greatest surprise SEUN replied and told me that he will rather stop making money online or even stop blogging in all instead of using Google AdSense as a means of monetisation. lol i nearly laugh out my ass. He further stated;

” I applied for AdSense and get approved i used AdSense for more than 2months with good accumulated earning and i was locked out for stupid reasons i cannot tell, I was not moved so i got another AdSense and after my first withdrawal of $100 i got banned, I was still persistence so i got another AdSense and after earning about 1,500$ i was suspended and later banned for invalid clicks and activities.”

I was weak to the bone and vowed never to use AdSense Seun Said. I felt sympathetic yet there was nothing i could do. All his hard earned AdSense are all gone he even go to the extent of changing domain name having got banned on his main domain name yet he finds no solution.

I noticed his problem was not from AdSense but enemies Online. Believe me just like you have enemies offline so you have them online. Some will even vow that they won’t see you use AdSense as long as they know your website. this happens commonly in Nigeria. They are ready to use VPN in clicking your Ads daily to make sure you are locked out and unless you identify and block such IPs you will get dooomed.

Even with what happened to John i still say AdSense has done nothing instead they only keeps to their policies so as an AdSense publisher you have to read and know AdSense policies and also avoid your enemies online if you can know them.

  • the Stress to get Approved AdSense account is Hard compare to getting affiliate account
  • Affiliate marketing pays higher commission than AdSense as they pay per sale while AdSense pays per click
  • Affiliate means of Withdrawal is made easy since most of this affiliate programs accept PayPal but AdSense does not
  • In some certain Blog niches AdSense is not allowed but you can find any affiliate Product for any niche type.
  • AdSense is Only Managed by Google but There are many Affiliate programs running online suitable for every type of website
  • AdSense policies are very strict compare to affiliate programs and this can cause the loss of your hard earned AdSense earning or account
  • You can share affiliate links everywhere online but AdSense is only for your domain name/website
  • Verification means is easy for affiliate but to AdSense it could be difficult
  • In most affiliate there is no occurring Earning you withdraw your earning for every successful sale but in AdSense you must reach the payment Threshold of $100 before you can withdraw

With the above listed points i think that Affiliate means of monetization is the best since it seems to be more favourable. But i can’t draw a conclusion that you should stick to it as i have noticed that many bloggers are not good in affiliate marketing yet theymake good money with Google AdSense from their website.

I will Say if you want to monetize your website/blog no matter the blogging niche i will recommend you make use of both affiliate and AdSense since that doesn’t violate AdSense polices when properly placed.
