    Sales Vs. Ad Revenue
    Since most of us are here to talk about affiliate/performance marketing, I would imagine most of us make our profits thorugh commissioned sales links.

    Is anyone building sites to generate ad revenue?

    If you were to start a new site, is it a no brainer that most of you would be building a site focused on selling commissioned products and services rather than planning to make money by showing ads?

    Most newspapers talk about how little money they make from online ads compared to print ads. This doesn't make sense to me since online ads can be measured and generate direct action much better compared to print ads.

    Do you think the ad revenue business model will improve in the future?

    And it's nice that they are willing to "share" some of that (boatload) revenue with some of us publishers.
