The Death of AdSense Meme

Posted on October 13, 2006

Why so many Death of AdSense or AdSense is Dead type posts? Here's one reason why.

Bloggers are getting paid for discussing some Death of AdSense book or newsletter by This campaign ran from September 14th to October 14th and apparently paid $10 per post. We have no way of knowing if it is being renewed for another month because and now blocks the opportunities page from non-members (we are not a member).

Aside from the ad campaign there is also some genuine discussion taking place. Some bloggers do think AdSense revenues could drop if there is too much click fraud going on or if Google is hampered by expensive click fraud lawsuits. Other bloggers think AdSense will continue to perform well. But for the most part it seems that this discussion was triggered by the campaign on PayPerPost.
