Not thatrepparttar 102386 Google Adsense program is not without its problems.asrepparttar 102387 reporting provided by Google is lacking. Google has not implemented any way to track multiple sites that serve ads; they simply showrepparttar 102388 number of ads served,repparttar 102389 percentage of clicks received, andrepparttar 102390 revenue earned each day. Google does not discloserepparttar 102391 amount ofrepparttar 102392 revenue they share, what percentage ofrepparttar 102393 revenue they earn and what someone can expect to receive for each click. Webmasters with multiple sites will have difficulty determining which websites are producingrepparttar 102394 money inrepparttar 102395 Adsense program.

With affiliate programs many webmasters implement a new browser launch with each click offrepparttar 102396 site, Adsense removesrepparttar 102397 visitor fromrepparttar 102398 website and there is not currently an option to launchrepparttar 102399 visitor into another browser.

Early on Google implemented a filtering system that allowed webmasters to prevent a specific domain's ads from being served onrepparttar 102400 website. Ad blocking meant that webmasters could prevent their competitors ads from being dynamically served on their website.

Overall, adwords are great supplements to websites where affiliate programs are either not performing or when affiliate programs don't exist that targetrepparttar 102401 sites content.

Give it a Try Implementing and maintaing Google Adsense program on a content site requires very little effort and can often bring a steady stream of additional revenue for webmasters. Consider supplementing content and see what happens.
