Novel idea ...learn the basics of building web pages and forget PPCSE direct to merchant SEM as a sole source of income. Then submit your pages to Google. The merchants and trademark holders themselves want to control the PPCSE top positions and drug keywords are expensive.
Millions of e-mail spammers whack the surfers mail boxes daily with drug offers and every sleezeball to try affiliate marketing has poluted the SERPs and e-mail with Viagra etc etc -penis enlargements -casinos -loan and mortgage offerings. Never pick a verticle popular with any form of spammer.Webmaster's... Mike and Charlie

Where spam = Unsolicited Commercial Email, I agree! Once they get ahold of something, the market becomes saturated with offers and ill-will and the sales tend to dry up.
As for SE spam, that's different. Just out-optimize all the competing stuff like you would any other listings that aren't yours. If you manage to do it, you win.

The biggest problem I see with direct-to-merchant SEM is that if you do that, you're stuck with the merchant's base CR. Merchant sites have gotten better in the last couple of years, but I still see some that would waste a lot of traffic if that traffic went straight to them. An affiliate sales page gives the aff. a chance to mitigate some of the merchant-site shortcomings and can, if done right, increase CR quite a bit.There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway
