Affiliate Marketing — Adsense Only Makes Cents!

You know what’s screwed up? I see more and more affiliate sites becoming big Adsense sites (including me). So, Instead of affiliates making 15-20% commission by selling a merchants products, affiliate marketers are selling their top web space advertising spots for pennies – to Google!. I agree, pennies do add up, and this is probably Google’s grand plan:

The merchant makes money by NOT having to pay affiliate commissions; Affiliates provide highly niche’d sites for merchants to advertise on (because Google demands it if you want to get noticed); Google gets to be the middle man and make profits off both of them!

Sometimes I wish I was a Search Engine!

Any comments?
