    When Will G Lower The Boom on Garbage Sites?
    There are more and more adsense garbage sites each day.

    Go to the site and there is nothing worthwhile to read or click on but adsense ads.

    Nothing wrong with adsense as an option but I see more and more sites that feature adsense as the only option.

    Until the kid barfs from the excess amount of candy

    A related question would be: does Google make (a considerable amount of) money from Adsense on garbage sites? If so, Google won't be lowering the boom anytime soon.

    If Google continues to accept these types of sites, how will the lack of quality affect the better type of sites that use Adsense?

    Yup. They could do something about it anytime they want. They don't.

    BINGO ... that's one reason why I've been apprehensive about this type of revenue generation as its season seems near the close

    note that if you have enough traffic on your parked domains, google will let you have some code to help you monetize them.

    hard to tell them from the scrapers, then . . .

    They won't. Or possibly, they will try, only to find some other form of garbage sites sprout up instead.

    Them having the AdSense program is a definite conflict of interest, no matter how often they say the search department is seperate.

    Google makes money from these garbage sites, but I think they would make even more if they cracked down on them. I'm finding they dilute search results, especially around heavy demand keywords.

    I have a few affiliates who run mini-directories around a few choice keywords. This means I'm buying against them in my own Adwords campaigns, then they are collecting Adsense revenue (less than affiliate commission) to send them back to my site.

    It would be more constructive on my affiliates part to create some content around links provided, drive the traffic themselves, and take the 35% of $297 ... instead of the $.65 I'm paying for the keyword.

    If my math is right, at a minimum 1% conversion to sale they get $1.04 per click with the affiliate link. Send targeted traffic for better conversion and better per click value.

    Of course, if they create content of value, they can still run their Adsense.

    But Adsense only ... is hurting everyone and reducing search relevance.

    Best,

    Justin

    I wish Google would do something. I'm seriously thinking about removing my own adsense ads because adsense is increasingly associated with spam intentions. I suspect Google needs the spam sites to offload lots of ad volume.

    As a publisher using adwords and an advertiser buying, I've observed Google earning 90% on each click. Whatever the total average, it will be very painful for Google to cut back on it's spam addiction.

    Simple AdSense garbage is already bashed out.

    More advanced version of AdSense garbage will most probably get out within 2-3 months, after Google manages to fix its changes.

    Super advanced AdSense garbage is called a value web site, and if Google starts to fight with them - its popularity can get into threat.

    And taking out adsense and other ad monetization projects for Google is impossible. This is business. They have to think about their money + the game of shares needs good capitalization.
