One Merchant or Many

I was just curious. How many focus on one program? Focus on many. Focus on one type of product or related. Its a very broad question but love to hear some success stories.

I focus on many -- some closely related, some loosely related.

I've got a few for different websites, but my biggest moneymaker by far is one single merchant. I'm trying hard now to find another that at least matches the success of this one so I'm not stuck if something happens.

I would like that one would make more money from a link created from picture of a "hot product" rather than the adsense "gibberish" but you have a who knows how many AMs are injecting parasites into their ads? How can an affiliate know for sure?
I have resisted Adsense thus far because:
- I don't want to clutter up my pages
- Although I have steady traffic, I wonder if it is enough to justify Adsense
- Websites promoting free hosting seem to do well with Adsense but all my sites are somewhat narrow niches
- I write a lot about a "certain type of widget" but I am afraid that Adsense might offer ads on "the counter widget" that I do not support
- That's another thing: loss of control scares me, I don't like the idea that I am not in control of the ads placed by a third party
The reason why I am thinking about "converting" to Adsense is that I want to convert all my webpages to XHTML and Adsense seems to go with XHTML rather nicely

Rhia, instead of just thinking about it, just try it. If you don't like it, remove it. Simple.

I really dont want to get this thread off subject
Clutter - add a small box to the bottom of your pages.
If you are worried about "Loss of control" then it is not for you. Myself I couldnt care less what G puts on my sites as my pages are highly targeted. I trust the big G on that one.
The counter widget thing is understandable I dont know how to avoid that since none of my "professional content gibberish pages" have ever come across that problem.
One thing that I want to say that there is nothing to lose by trying it.

As an aff, I have lots of merchants, in lots of categories (some related and some not related at all). Rather than try to predict what'll be the hot seller for the year, I find it's better to just be promoting a lot of different things.
As a merchant, the absolute hardest part was deciding on one category to focus on. I'd love to do like Wal-Mart and just sell nearly everything!There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway
