    I'm not a fan of Adsense. Not any more. You really need to go authority these days (gone are the days of those effective SEO mini sites) and your ROI will tend to be much higher with affiliate or own-product offers.

    Social networking sites have been a disaster for adsense account. There is a high risk of getting account disabled as you have same visitors over and over again. Search engines are best source of traffic.

      I'm in total agreement; Adsense does not favor social networking sites because this traffic is not viewed as valuable for their advertisers. Google Adsense wants people from search engine traffic to click on their ads because they are the highest targeted and most profitable clicks for them.

      However, I want to encourage you to continue with your plans on creating Adsense sites. If you do, make sure you make them valuable for your readers and you will be rewarded. Work hard on getting your sites ranking in the search engines.

      If you are going to invest money on Adsense sites, after you research profitable niches and pick out keywords, outsource your articles and never look back! You will make money if you stick with it.

      There are very few businesses where you can invest $500 dollars for 50 URLs, $5,250 dollars for 15 articles per site, and an ROI of $20,000 to $25,000 dollars your first year. That's typical for someone who knows what they are doing with Adsense. (Let me break this down: 50 sites bringing you an average of 1,800 page views a day, 10% CTR = 180 clicks a day. 180 clicks a day times (X) a modest .35 cents a click = $63 dollars a day. $63 dollars X 365 days a year = $22,995!)

      The biggest advantage of building Adsense sites is you will be able to set and forget many of your sites for years to come, and they will still pull in a lot of money. I have many sites that I have not touched in two years and they are still just as profitable as they were two years ago!

    I say . . . invest that money in building a niche authority site. Create a product(s) or spend a little and have one created for you.

    Adsense, IMO, is not the way to make decent money for small time marketers like most of us. You make pennies for people clicking away from your site.

    Do your market research and find a hot niche where prospects will spend money to solve a problem or have a desire met. Create, license, or pay to have a product tailor-made to solve the problem you've identified. Set up a web site, fill it with relevant information, begin building a list of prospects in the niche . . . an you're on your way to success!

      The two highlights above will get you going long term.

      I don't really consider adsense to a business model at all. It's more of a way to monetize traffic that really can't be monetized in any other way, or that the site owner is too lazy to explore better options with. In any case, don't be lazy

      Having your own product allows you full control over what the customer receives, how it's presented to them, and building that list will allow you long term communication with them.

    I still prefer micro niche sites. I have got 10 of my small niche sites still have occupied first page of Google and doing exceedingly well. All I did was add an opt in box attached in these sites and getting leads everyday. Micro sites still works if optimize with a proper plan.

    Social traffic is not what adsense enjoys, you might get hit anytime. More people use adsense as the monetization because, it is a care-free once you start getting traffic to your website. A visitor need not take his credit card out to generate income for you.

    Microniche or Authority really depends on the keyword you choose. In the recent years authority sites have a better & faster success rates than microniche sites. Another advantage is, you will never run out of ideas to keep your authority website active.

    I recommend you build Authority websites and monetize them with adsense, amazon and affiliate networks based on the keyword. If you have good conversion with amazon or clickbank, remove adsense from the website to prevent leak of conversions.

    Social traffic doesn't fetch you much with the micro niche websites. To earn more it is better to drive traffic from search engines.
    To improve traffic to your website analyze for those terms which people are using to get your site.
    Optimize your website for new terms, for long tail search terms.
    Update content on the blogs of your website. I've got traffic from the blogs on the wordpress.

    Already you are earning from the adsense, I hope you will be able to earn more & more from this sector. To increase your earning, you must increase traffic. Without traffic, you will not be able to earn. so please give emphasis on the traffic. Thanks

    If you want to make good money off adsense then
    you need to enjoy immense amount of traffic from
    the search engine.

    Overall, making money from adsense is just about your
    niche/market and then traffic. The keywords and
    CPC you pick matters as well as your landing page.

    Put more focus in creating a authority website. It would be better worth it in the long run for you. Also google shows more interest to sites that provides quality to their visitors. Focus on providing quality content and not seo or adsense and your visitor count will grow.

    Today, definitely way to go is authority site with ton of long tailed articles and to be patient, because those sites needs 3 months usually to start gaining some profit
