I have a client who is hot to start using AdSense to get some more revenue and he said that he heard that AdSense participation can provide an SEO boost. While I told my client that he should not expect a great deal of revenue I had never heard about the possible SEO benefits. Can anyone confirm or refute this?

as far as i know adsense is not going to help any SEO boost....

However if you do SEO on a site with adsense, you can expect some quality traffic and hence a good earning from adsense.

Adsense is almost irrelevant for SEO. Almost means that it can have a negative effect: Some sites are just made for adsense. If that is obvious, the site will be penalized.

If you are making websites only for adsense purpose, then google is definitely going to punish you.....

so i would recommend you to first make a webiste, get a descent traffic and then add adsense...

FWIW, implementing AdSense will get Google to give your site a good, deep crawl. They naturally do this to make sure they display Google ads that are relevant to the website's content. I have heard of cases where webmasters, who added AdSense, suddenly notice better SERP placement or have seen new pages indexed. Then again - others (including myself) noticed no change at all.

I'd be interested in hearing how this works out for you and your client - that is, if you decide to give it a shot...

The adsense reporting, includes google's monitoring javascripts so may give you a better sense of what pages are getting hit, So you can optimize your site content

BUT
Google adwords adsense, analytics servers are listed in the Spybot 'Immunize' database,
and the MSMVP Hosts file, as malware,
revenues and the reports will not be accurate,
any user with a competent antimalware program will not load those external javascripts, see the ads, or be recorded on the tracker.

If all your client is looking for is Adsense revenue then good luck with that.

If your client has a web site geared to bring him more business then Adsense detracts from that marketing goal. Adsense is almost like reverse marketing, bring in the qualified visitor so he can click your competitor and you make a few cents, maybe. Makes no sense at all to me why business web sites do this.

I agree with you totally in regards to the pointlessness of Adsense on a serious business website. I think I am dealing with what we all deal with as we consult with clients, that being someone who hears something in passing that sounds to good to be true and regardless of how smart they are they buy it hook, line and sinker!

Thanks all for the input. Time to put my client straight.
