    A few days ago I found out about Google Adsense. It seemed pretty cool, but I wasn't sure how well it actually worked. Does anyone have any previous experience with it?
    Thanks

    I highly do not recommend google adsense. First off all their payment sucks. I mean when you make 90 cents off of 29 clicks one day and $5 off of 6 clicks another you know that something is not right. Second of all they cancel your account the moment they even suspect something is wrong. I used them for a while on my website and then boom all of a sudden my account was terminated becuase of "suspected fraud" which they didn't even prove happened.

    bidclix looks more reliable than adsense, however it looks as if it pays at a steady rate of only aout .35 cents. I don't know though. How is it working for you?

    ok
    this question is for Maggz or anyone else who has used bidclix:
    If you haven't earned a certain amount of money in a month, do you still get a paycheck?
    For instance, with Adsense, they only pay you if you have earned over $100 in one month. Is this true with Bidclix?
    Thanks for your help!

    I've never heard of bidclix, so I can't comment on them. But, I thought I'd comment on AdSense since no one else likes them. ;) I've had a ton of advertisers show up here who never paid. I've been very happy with Google. Their ads run fast, rarely let offensive links fall through, and pay on time every month. We're averaging $0.17/click right now, but that varies widely in both directions. In all, I've been pretty happy. :)

    I've also never heard of bidclix, but have been using Adsense on my (tech) site for a while now and paid off all hosting fees I've ever paid! (y)

    As opposed to other "affiliate" programs this one pays for each clicks, no need to buy from the "clicked" site before you get a commission.

    Also the amount per click depends on your page content and what the keyword that triggered the ad was worth. See their AdWord program for details.

    You also need a high traffic site to get a good revenue.

    All I have to say is if it wasn't for this program, my site may not have been around anymore! :D
