Hello,
I was thinking of creating a lot of adsense sites with 10 articles or so for each site. I've seen some people do it when plr articles or outsource the articles. I would probably need to make a 1k sites to bring in some good revenue each month. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully someone who is currently doing this and is successful can chime in

    Adsense doesn't generate the sort of profits it used to so it may be dissappointing. A lot of effort to get 1K sites up, you would want to get some decent $ back from it.

      i see your point and i have a question.

      i am on the path of setting up sites in my micro niche right now. i am in no rush (this is important, since i love my day job).

      2 of my sites rank well right now and i am making a little bit of money.

      if i continue to do this with the rest of the sites i own and than expand to more sites, will i not have a substantial income in the long run?

      oh, i am talking about micro niche here, so once the sites are #1, very little maintenance is required.

      Sorry no, that is not great info, but downright harmfull and ****ty advice. As I recall he encourages creating blogs using PLR content and even free blogger blogs.

      Post-Panda and a long time before it, that was as good as never seeing a cent of income.

      That stuff may have worked 3 years ago, but it certainly doesn't work now.

    You don't need 1k auto blog sites. Just make 10 good sites with original content and about 25 pages in the right niches and you can still make a good income with adsense

    Thanks everyone for the replies.. Yes, the blog empire thread is where I got the initial strategy. I'd want to build and build so that's where the 1000 sites figure came up. But I'll check into some of the other suggestions mentioned.

    Keep in mind that adsense has some quality guidelines for the sites that the banners are displayed on.

    If you start creating a bunch of junk sites that are not updated on a regular basis, or have duplicate content on them, you might get a letter from google.

    My personal opinion - if your going to create sites to use with adsense, its quality over quantity.

    Create just 1 or 2 sites that you can update with quality content on a regualr basis.

      ok, that's why I was thinking about having articles written for each niche that I decide on. Perhaps revise my target to 30 sites a month or about 360 a year I'd like to build a blog empire

      Thanks everyone for your feedback it's greatly appreciated! If anyone else has anything to contribute feel free to do so.

        I don't think you need quite that many sites. I was talking with someone who told us that he made $36K the previous month. He had somewhere around 275 sites. This was around nine to twelve months ago, but I am pretty sure he is still doing similarly. I have not seen him in a while.

        If that is not enough for you, then maybe go for a thousand. But I would think most of us could live quite well on that kind of income.

    Or honestly try purchasing some adsense sites that are already established on Flippa. If you have some extra capitol you can save a huge headache and purchase a adsense site that brings in around 100 bucks a month for around $1000. I don't know what your financial state is but this is "easier"

    I've started out with Adsense.
    For me it was a fail because the most money that I've made with it was about 20 Euros/month which I had to split in half with a friend.

    Also you have to do some SEO for the websites so you can get some decent traffic.

    The problem with Adsense is that as you said, you need lots of websites to make money. After a while it becomes hard to keep track on all the websites. I recommend using Excel for that so you don't lose passwords or forget the host name.

    Another problem that I've faced is: the new website would rise suddenly and go at about 300 visitors/a day. After a month or so the traffic line just plummeted to 30/day or in some cases to 1-2/day.

    As you can see this is very risky so be cautious.

      when the site goes from 300 visits to 30 visits a day.. why did you leave that much fall.. when it comes to say 200-100 visits per daay, you should kick it with some 4-5 quality articles and some link juice... It just needs fuel and you did not provide the fuel for the engine...

    This may help...
    I have been watching these gut's on flippa and they are also fellow warrior members.
    The two have put a ton of valuable data together. The below link is to a page on their blog with an actual financial report. I consider these guy's pretty good at what they do and they seem to try to give out honest info.

    This may clear up any misconceptions and offer some tangible documented advice...

    I have several micro niche sites and am getting a good amount of traffic but few clicks. What I am really surprised at is the amount I am paid per click. Maybe just the wrong niches, but very low.

      Each click is different. There were times when I've got $0.5 per click and there were times I've got $0.02 per click.

      And yes, it depends on the niche. Having a website on dog training is different than having one on medical issues (they later tends to have higher pay per click)

    What is the value to your readers of a web site set up for the sole purpose of showing them ads? It looks like the only concern is to make money, not to help your reader.

    Sounds like a losing strategy to me.

    OK, let's put it this way... you are planning on having 1000 sites... OK, do you mean to have 1000 free blogs or 1000 of your actual sites? If the second option apply, you should think about your costs too... 1000 sites would cost you about $1,000 per month... can you make so much with, let's assume, auto blogs?

    OK, you could but it's not all about just making those sites... what about marketing, promotion, links, SEO, content... I hope you are not thinking only about throwing 1000 of sites up and expecting fat Adsense checks?

    I'm sorry to admit this but getting 1,000 good autoblogs up is near impossible. Autoblogs should still have a unique design and "sort of" unique concept in order to make money. The "auto" part comes from the articles posted, which will be posted via WP Robot (unless you choose another platform to use).

    Also, you have to remember, if an autoblog is making you $1/month, it isn't enough to cover all the expenses including hosting and domain renewal. Domain renewal in particular is $10/year and only $2 will be left over per blog. You must really think this through.

    In my opinion, an autoblog is only worth creating if you're making at least $5 per month, otherwise the rest of the fees associated with running an autoblog will eat your income up.

    It sounds like it would be not only a lot of work creating the sites, but managing and remembering to keep the domains renewed not to mention keeping it all in order. I can barely keep up and manage a handful of sites. Maybe if you created a smaller amount and choose a higher paying niche and concentrate on a smaller number it might be just as profitable.

    Keep in mind not all clicks are woth the same! For example Credit card related PPC links may be worth $5 per click, where a chocolate manufacturer might be 20c.

    Keep that in mind when doing your niche research, as this is the key between making money, and wasting it.

    I've just started to use Adsense to make money and the one site I worked on to figure out what works made $138.00 on it's first month, $175 last month and is on track to make $300 this month. That's one site, and it was built with the reader in mind. Quality content. I've recently had additional sites built and two of them are starting to trickle in income as well and with quality back links and more quality articles I'll be able to rank them on the first page of Google, Yahoo and Bing using multiple keywords which means driving the traffic up.

    What it comes down to is instead of trying to build 1000 blogs, why not build a couple of sites at a time, perform your keyword research, build them with quality content, onsite SEO optimized and then build or outsource quality backlinks to them to help them rank for multiple keywords and instead of aiming for 1-2 dollars per day per site, look to make minimum $10.00 per day per site BUT with the reader in mind.

    Good information here.. Yeah I agree with making only 10 sites with good niche. Do some keywords research and I'm pretty sure that you could get good earnings with adsense if you optimize them very well.

    If you have time and good budget, make 100 sites with good niche and maintenance well, no need 1k sites.

    If you take the time to do proper keyword research and analyze your competition thoroughly, you can earn a solid amount just from a handful of websites. No need for 1,000 low-quality websites earning a few pennies here and there.

    Creating niche sites work. I know 2 persons that are earning in excess of 10 K a month. The sites that they create is Adsense/ Amazon combination sites. The key to success is to do proper research in keyword selection. Determine profitability, competition and whether a keyword is seasonal beforehand. Choose a wrong keyword and it will surely reflect on the income it will generate. Also make sure that you add unique quality content, minimum of 5 pages to start of with. No quality content? Start searching for your webpage on page 7 of Google.

      1000 sites ? Look what the hell kinda of sleep will you be getting with that ? running 100 sites is hard enough, good luck being a slave to Google!

      Unless you hire about 20+ VAs to micromanage them fulltime, you are in for a hell of a battle man

      I'd rather have 1 site with 1000 pages

    First experiment with a few sites say 2-3 as a start up. Promote and update them regularly. Then add up more sites with slow pace. This way you will be ready and gain experience over time to handle an empire of sites.

    Seriously do some math.

    How about renewing all those domains at $10 (estimate) x 1,000 = $10,000 (per year).

    You could have one heck of an authority site ($10 per year) instead of a thousand MFAs, 1,000 x 10 pages = 10,000 page site.

    Good luck with that ROI.

    Hey. I would Stay away from PLR articles. Go with 100% unique content.

    Im not saying PLR doesn't work, but I feel better knowing the content on my website is unique.

    Also I wouldnt go out and build Thousands of sites. The renewal fee for all of those sites will be a lot and also to continually backlink all of these sites will also be costly.

    That is why I changed up my approach to focus on a handful of sites or so.

    I just think it is easier that way.
