My question is legitimate, "Where are you know?" He says he's going to "get there" (presumably just needs more time) so I would have expected him to me closer now, why is that question out of bounds? Further, with five more weeks, I would expect him to have made a substantial gain cuz we all know it starts slow and speeds up, right?

Ax to grind? Get a grip.

So how close are you now Steve? I might want to buy the book... if it works.

So you believe the only reason for this thread was for him to pimp an ebook? The bigger question is what is wrong with you? How about commending the man for trying and then having the guts enough to say he didn't reach his goal, unlike what others would do and lie about it? On top of that a LOT of folks learned much more about building blogs/sites and monetizing with adsense along the way.

Then after saying he's failed miserably and also saying (Why would anyone buy form an expert who can't produce even one fifth of what he promises?) you state that you might want to buy his book? That's pathetic.

Based on the sycophantic responses, I'm guessing the "Cash Cow sales are pretty good.

"I am not a crook!" ~ Richard Nixon
First of all, the people on this forum are by and large NOT sycophantic, bootlickers, cronies, or any other such thing. And since I'm one of the "sycophantic" responses you've likely read, I will take some time to let you know just what kind of an insulting pile of sh** your post is:

In the first place, had Steve's motive behind this challenge was to pimp his ebook by proving he could make 100 per day in adsense earnings, he had to do only 1 of 2 things.

1. Develop 5 blogs with his strategy (which would have been only slightly more difficult) showed his result, and watched all us fawning parasites fill up his bank account.
2. He could have done exactly nothing, very easily faked adsense earnings (http://googleadsensegenerator.com/) and lied his way into a very nice increase in sales by providing bogus progress reports both here and on his blog.

He did no such thing, and whether or not you think your opinion holds weight, what you are implying between the lines is insulting both to him and to people here who support his effort and his forthright reporting.

His point was to attempt a "challenge" both to himself and to anyone who wished to join or follow. Furthermore, if he knew of his imminent success it wouldn't have been that much of a "challenge" yes?

Anyone who has followed this thread knows exactly that.

While I do understand that honesty online runs the risk of bringing the knuckleheads out of the woodwork - your derogatory initial post holds no substantive opinion at all and makes me wonder what purpose you have by jumping in (with only a few posts to your credit) and lending this sort of crass judgment and antagonistic attitude. That is, unless the very reason you joined this forum was for the sole purpose of crapping on people who value honesty and provide useful help.

I bet you're a real frikin hit at parties.

Joe, you are entitled to your opinion but I have to pull you up on this as you are so far off the mark here. The $100 challenge is something I took up as it is a challenge pure and simple and also to demonstrate how I build sites monetized by Adsense..

Nowhere in my cash cow guide do I make any claims about earning $100 a day from 1 blog, it is very possible of course but the focus is on how to build quality sites that do really well with Adsense and last in the search engines. Earning potential as always relies on the effort you put in to your sites.

Joe, get your facts right, read this thread rather than skim the last few posts and read my blog rather than cast wild aspertions and you will "genuinely understand it". In fact, if you think $25 a day from 1 blog is a poor effort then you are right! I challenge you to start another thread and show us exactly how you can do better.

At the risk of being chased by a mob with pitch forks I don't get it.

It looks like hundreds of hours of work were created here for peanuts. All of the oggling for what? 50 bucks. Are you trying to depress us?

Creating something for adsense seem to be a faulty premise. You should be creating something of value for users.


I have made about $50k last year off of my start up sites. Where's my fan club?

I think you are confused on your forums, pitchforks are over at the farmers convention!

I have thoroughly enjoyed following this thread, and learned a lot from it, including the fact that there are some people out there who get jealous when someone else gets any attention. Why don't you show us how you performed your amazing 50K feat so we can all applaud you too, (with adequate proof of course!). I'll happily learn from anyone willing to teach something worthwhile.

Otherwise you could get together with Joebil and a few others to form a "let me rain on your parade" forum so you won't need this one to post your peeves.

The people who have contributed to this thread are not fans as you put it but genuine people with a genuine interest in Adsense.

Do something worthy, by offering warriors something of value in another thread rather than throw negative vibes around and you might find some "fans".. :rolleyes:

So it’s completely about "feeling good" and results are secondary? Apparently that’s the case because I have been excoriated for pointing out the emperor doesn’t have any cloths on.

My point is that the man sells a book purportedly explaining how to do that which he was unable to do in real life and no one has any problem with that? Instead, when I point it out, I’m shouted down.

Here’s the part that really bothers me though, Crook says:

"I will get the blog up to $100, I failed to do it in 3 months but I will eventually do it."

And I ask where he is with it now? If it's still on track for $100/day, shouldn't the results over the last five weeks be better than the previous five weeks?

I would expect the site to be really rolling right about now. If it is indeed making progress, I will buy the book. Heck, I don’t mind waiting a few more weeks for a $100.00/day but I would like to know there it is a possibility. (I expect the truth is that it has dried up almost completely since it’s now out of the spotlight.)

So, Mr. Crook, where are you with the challenge now? And to you "fans", why aren't you more curious how the site is doing now?

For the record, I do NOT think the challenge was issued in order to sell the book. But I have serious reservations about someone selling a book that demonstrably doesn't work. Even the author can't make it work! It feeds into all the stereotypes about useless marketing information products.

Joebil, you clearly haven't read even the last few pages of this thread, where Steve has indicated his current earnings and also stated he has eased off effort wise now the 90 days are up.
Also at no point have I seen his Adsense guide claim to show how to make $100 off one blog in 3 months.
You've waded in at the end with no useful contribution whatsoever

Joebil,

My response to anyone claiming to have a "secret", or "hidden technique" is never met with feel good responses. The opposite is the case. I'm skeptical to a fault. I have never paid or any "make monies online" advice, in my entire history online. I doubt I ever will. For you to lump me into the category of kool aid drinkers and sheeple is absolutely ridiculous. Read some of my other responses in this forum, I am quick to point out the shite that spreads around here.

Having said that, there are certain people, mostly located in this forum, who actually try hard to provide genuine help and guided examples to people. These people deserve my praise and endorsement. They also deserve to be defended against unnecessary and spiteful condemnation.

It's fairly obvious you're not a troll/flamer, but your lack of tact in your initial post shows me that you are bottom feeding and insulting for no good reason. Calling people "sycophants" and comparing the OP to Nixon - a proven lying sack of sh** - is not only disingenuous it's obviously mentioned only to add an unnecessary negative slant to Steve, a person who doesn't deserve such a response.

I've seen so many posts where someone in this forum will swoop in and ask a question like "how do I get ranked #1 in google?" and in his/he sig is an WSO or ebook with the title "I'll Show You How To Rank #1 In Google in 24 Hours". How about you lend your harsh criticism to those people? They deserve your vitriol. Steve does not.

I have followed this OP since its' inception and I'm a savy bloke. Not once have I felt cheated or misled by Steve's progress in his chellenge, nor the lack thereof. The opposite in fact - I was often refreshed by his honesty.

You had originally jumped in here - seemingly - to malign an OP that can/has genuinely helped people who are interested in making money with adsense sites. If you're being such a realist and just here to help all us sheeple realise we've been duped, well I question that motive. There are at least a dozen other threads and WSO's here - right now - that are obviously not worth the reading time and need to be "outted". Perhaps you shoud be using your tenure here ("member since 2006") to help the people swallowing that kool aid. ?

YOU SAID: "My point is that the man sells a book purportedly explaining how to do that which he was unable to do in real life and no one has any problem with that? Instead, when I point it out, I’m shouted down."

Try making your point without insulting the many people whom have read and/or contributed to this thread - no one would shout you down. Certainly not me.

YOU SAID: "For the record, I do NOT think the challenge was issued in order to sell the book. But I have serious reservations about someone selling a book that demonstrably doesn't work. Even the author can't make it work! It feeds into all the stereotypes about useless marketing information products."

Ummm, 20.00 per day in adsense earnings in certainly not a failure. In fact he has proven that his techniques demonstrably work. His ebook states he can help people make decent money in adsense. For the record, nowhere in his product claim does he state "this book will make you 100.00 per day in adsense, guaranteed". It does however state that he can help people create "profit pulling" wordpress blogs. Where I come from 20.00 a day - on autopilot - is profit, and massive proof that he knows what he's talking about.

Anyone here that can call an extra 7300.00 per year NOT a success is rich enough to be lending me money and not lurking around here complaining.

So YOU have been a member since 2006 and have a grand total of 6 posts with no thanks! Would be interesting to know if any of those bountiful posts have been positive ones?
....or do you just post after all that beer that you take to the parties.
I see that Peter Gibson has over 200 posts. Makes your comparison pretty clear to me.

Your inane comments tell me a lot about your parties, but do not relate much to the facts on this thread.

"You've waded in at the end with no useful contribution whatsoever."

Is that what I've done? Remind me, Bounderby, how long you've been a member here?

Mr. Crooks says: "I will get the blog up to $100, I failed to do it in 3 months but I will eventually do it."

Does that mean he's slacked off for now (since the 90 days are up) but plans to come back to it at some future date so as to get it up to $100/day? If that's the case, when should I revisit the topic? I ask you since you apparently speak for him now.

Look, if he can produce $100/day, I want to know about it!

I too have not seen where where the adsense guide claims to produce $100/day... but I did read where its author claimed to be able to do so.

Will the next Steve Crook apologist please step forward...

Right, so now I'm not only a "sycophant" and drinking the "kool aid", I'm a "Steve Crook apologist". :rolleyes:

See, this is why WF really needs a shaking head smiley.

I am not apologizing for anything since this OP has not done anything worthy of an apology, by neither Steve nor myself doing so on his behalf. And had Steve been anywhere near irresponsible or guilty of deception AT ANY POINT during his challenge, guaranteed I would have called him on it in spades - and any of my friends on this forum would concur.

In my last response I had said I found you to NOT be a troll. I withdraw that statement. You are just exactly that. It's obvious now that you have no intention or desire for comprehending the subject matter here, your only goal seems to be baiting us all into a useless and boring arugment. All this at the expense of the original meaning of this OP. The name calling alone shows you to be lacking in tact, and your complete failure to understand the facts of this challenge show that you are not here to contribute anything useful.

If your intention was to find out where Steve is now with the challenge, the answers are already here in previous posts. If you wanted to know if he's closer to his goal, an appropriate question would have given you a prompt and helpful answer I'm sure. In fact that question has been answered, many times. Instead it looks to me as if you set out to be a pompous, confrontational ass, drag down a helpful thread, and insult as many people as you could in 100 words or less.

I never said it was a failure... but it's five times less than he promised.

Look, I didn't make the challenge, he did. I assumed he was going to use the techniques in his book and that he understood the limitations of his methods, and that $100 was a reasonable figure. I was as excited as the next guy at the prospect of $100 a day but if the author can't make it work, who can?

Besides, he still says he can make $100/day (eventually) so I'd like to know when (and how)? If I need to come back in a couple months, I'll do so but I need to know when. I thought we were here to make some money, not to glad-hand and back-slap.

If he can produce $100/day, I'd like to know about it. Is that too much to ask?

Steve?

I have been wondering quite how to respond to this thread this evening because nobody likes to see their name and integrity questioned. I have decided that the best route is to just let it go. My point being is that I don't have to defend myself as I have done nothing wrong pure and simple.

All that I will say is thanks to all the people who have found something of value from this thread and all the kind words as well, I really appreciate it.

Before this thread turns into a playground I would like to get back on topic again and lets remember what is important here and that is discussing and criticising (positively) how to create great sites monetised by Adsense.

Somebody asked earlier about why I chose Adsense over CPA and the truth is, it isn't about choosing.. Do both! This particular thread is about Adsense specifically, maybe one day I will start a challenge on CPA offers.

Okay Joe, you do have a genuine question here having read it again and it deserves an answer.. The techniques I used in this challenge demonstrate how I build sites monetised by Adsense and most of them I describe in my cash cow guide to Adsense.

You are right I thought I could get the blog I created to $100 a day within 3 months and when I started the challenge I knew it would be difficult but I was confident that I could get there. I have already said that I failed to do it in the time frame I gave myself and I am not proud of that. I have also said that I am not putting any more stupid time limits on getting to $100 a day with this blog. If this is my crime in your eyes Joe, I can live with that.

Also, in my challenge report that I have given to all my customers I have stated that my biggest regret is giving people the impression that they should aim for $100 a day within 3 months.. Of course you can get to $100 a day with 1, 2, 3, 5, or maybe 50 blogs it is about how much content you put out there and how much you put into promoting them. Does it matter how quickly you get there or just that you do actually get there?

Anyone who is complaining that Steve failed in his quest, and therefore his book is a fraud, please remember something: Even the best baseball players strike out more times than they get on base, and the number of times they hit a home run is puny compared to their times at bat. Steve took his turn at bat and he got on base with this blog. $600 a month is not too shabby for three months.

If Steve had started three, four or more blogs and said that he would make $100 a day with one of them, then MAYBE I could see your point. No one is going to succeed every time, and that is not to say that Steve failed. Adsense is a tough nut to crack for most folks. I will bet that there are more people that try and never get their first check because they don't meet the minimum payout that Google sets, than those that make money with it.

It is too bad you didn't pull it off Steve. But, don't pay any attention to those that bitch at you for trying. You did it in front of everyone, and then owned up to us when you didn't make it. You could have lied and told us that you had done it. But obviously you have more honor than that.

For what it is worth, in my mind, rinse and repeat. The next one you do may be a $100 a day one, and then again, maybe only another $20 or so. Who cares? Rinse and repeat.

Steve, thank you so much for your insightful post. I am one of those determined to make money online but have yet to earn a penny. What may have been obvious to others has been totally elusive to me. I found your original post to be inspiring, the easiest to understand and the best step-by-step procedure for targeting a market that I have yet to find. I‘m actually going back now to copy it down so as not to loose sight of what‘s important.

I am here to say thank you to Steve Crooks for opening this thread.
It has been a useful thread for me and I am now saving some money to buy the ebook.

I know that there many negative comments on this thread
who turn the people's motivation down.
So, I decided to share my thought.

I've been doing online business for 5 years and gain no success.
I spent my last 6 months learning the concept of make money blogging with adsense.
I'm glad that finally I found this thread and the Steve's ebook.

Though I don't know what is the ebook contains exactly,
I have a faith that it will give me at least $20 per day ,
3 months from the day i buy it.

$20 per day form 1 blog is a big $ for me.
Moreover it is a white hat method.
I do not need to fight my inner voice to do a black hat
with the black hat tool.

I count on you Steve for the next 3 months.
I will definately buy you ebook and take action.

So people, please respect others goodwill to offer a positive lessons.
They have the right to sell the report anyway,
it's a fair payback.

I have already said that I failed to do it in the time frame I gave myself and I am not proud of that. I have also said that I am not putting any more stupid time limits on getting to $100 a day with this blog. If this is my crime in your eyes Joe, I can live with that.

Also, in my challenge report that I have given to all my customers I have stated that my biggest regret is giving people the impression that they should aim for $100 a day within 3 months.. Of course you can get to $100 a day with 1, 2, 3, 5, or maybe 50 blogs it is about how much content you put out there and how much you put into promoting them. Does it matter how quickly you get there or just that you do actually get there?

Wow. That is great! For now, I'm targeting 5$ a day, sounds cheap? But it would be a great start if that happens.

Finding a good adsense niche

The criteria for a good adsense niche is:

1. Has high CPC associated with it.
2. Has low competition.
3. Has plenty of advertisers in adwords.
4. Has plenty of searches in google.

I can use various software tools that I own to help with this part but as I want to demonstrate this to the masses I will use the excellent free google keyword tool to help.

There has been some speculation as to the accuracy of google's tool in respect to number of searches but for me, I generally find it accurate having tested it with some adwords campaigns. It is a great tool for finding number of searches and cost associated with each keyword.

Before we get to this stage I need to decide on the topic of my blog first with half an eye on what are traditionally good adsense paying niches. Broadly speaking, we can say the following topics are traditionally associated with high CPC.

1. Legal
2. Financial
3. Web Hosting
4. Medical
5. Travel and tourism

As a believer in trying as far as we can to create a site about something we might be remotely interested in, I will pick travel and tourism as my starting point.

It is now time to dig into the travel & tourism topic to find a niche that satisfies my other criteria and that I can be interested in creating content for.

I then go to kwbrowse.com and do a number of searches starting with travel and then tourism. On the right pane of kwbrowse after each search is a list of related topics to your main one. I click on some of the topics that kwbrowse shows up and copy paste the results into notepad. At the end I have a long list of travel and tourism related keywords.

Time to open up google keyword tool.. I then paste this list of keywords into the keyword tool and click on "use synonyms". When the results are returned, I sort by "Estimated Avg. CPC" from high to low. I then look down the list looking for four things.

1. High CPC
2. High Searches per month
3. Consistent searches through the year
4. Could I create content for that niche?

I also make sure that my "match type" is set to "exact". This should give an accurate result for each particular phrase.

In my case, I dug down into the cruise vacation niche and was presented with a few possible candidates which fit my criteria laid out. I then made another list with my possible niches on.

The next step is to find out the level of competition for each niche. I do this by typing into google each niche keyword phrase in inverted commas. I then made a note on my list of the number of search results returned. I am looking for anything that has competition of less than 500,000 because I reckon I can nail a page 1 position on google with that level.

While I do this I will also be looking at the quality of sites that fill the top 10 positions on google just to see what I could potentially be up against.

Okay, I have made my decision..

I have decide to go for "European Cruises" for the following reasons..

1. It has a CPC of $6.51 associated with it.
2. It has approximately 6600 searches per month.
3. The search volume is reasonably consistent through the year.
4. The competition is 181,000 in google.
5. I can create content for this niche.

My next post will be how I chose a domain name for it and a WP theme. Until then...

p.s. You don't have to copy the niche I chose, there are literally thousands of them if you do the same research and it only takes about half an hour.
This alone is ABC of niche research that could easily be copied for other keywords and starts one on a profitable niche journey. Keep it up please.

So much negativity!
Steve started this thread as a way to give FREE help to people trying to make money on line. He has answered many questions and even listened to some other ways that people have of doing things. The book is for sale, yes, but not required. Everything that is needed is right in this thread.
He could have set his goal at $10 and he would have ended up as a superhero. But who sets their goals so low that that are easy to obtain? Only losers.
I have seen Steve put up with a lot of losers posting in this thread. I once commented that he was a better man than I and that this was like running a race with a pack of dogs nipping at his heals! But he just keeps on smiling and running the race.
Personally I have taken notes from this thread and put them into a pdf format for later reference. And I am sure that a LOT of people have taken a lot of good information from this thread.
So did Steve lose? Did any readers of this thread lose? I would have to say no. Steve admitted his defeat with his tail between his legs. He had so many comments telling him that it was not a defeat, but a win. Just because he set his goal high, doesn't mean that he lost. It just means that he challenges himself more than some other people would.
I can't imagine how many people were helped and inspired by this thread. Inspired to take action. Even if they did not follow Steve's advice to the letter, or buy his book, they learned that any action is better than none. And that is the message that Steve has projected.
So who did lose? The people who came in here looking for negativity. Looking to call names and sling negativity. Those same people probably never helped anyone do anything for free. Those same people will never succeed because of their negative attitudes. Because as surely as you think it can't be done, it can't! But those that think it can happen will find a way to make it happen. And they will not quit until it does!
There are many variables in anything that we do in life. Maybe a different niche, a few different keywords, or adsense placement, and there could have been different results. But does it matter? Not to the ones that were here for the free lessons. The methods remain the same. And if 100 people followed along, there would be 100 different results.
So at the end of the day who would I rather listen to and follow? Steve. Because he is truely interested in helping people. And if you believe otherwise, you are in the wrong forum and the wrong world. Steve has shown the true Warrior Spirit and I am thankful for all that I have learned and I am also thankful that he is a member of this forum.

People, I have to chime in here and remind those that are here to learn, and who commend Steve on his honesty and integrity, to ignore the people who obviously have some sort of ax to grind. Hopefully, as with any other bully, they will get tired and go away.

It is up to each person here to decide whether or not $50, $25, or even $20 dollars a day is worth our time. It is not up to the likes of JoeBil to decide that for us. I have a great appreciation for Steve having shown me another potential way to go about making money on the internet. What you do with his information, how much effort you are willing to put in, and how much money you are willing to make is up to you.

If this is not a program for you, that's fine.

I too have read this thread from the first post, to the last post, and have copied much of Steve's information into a file for study. To me $20 a day from one site is awesome, I have yet to make dime one, but will not give up trying -and it is threads like this that give me the inspiration, and the information to get a little better every day.

I am deeply grateful for the forum, and the unselfish people like Steve who put it on the line to pass on the knowledge that I lack and desperately need, without looking for any compensation for all the time and energy that they invest in us, even though we are unknown, and sometimes ungrateful.

@Steve
I made a few posts at the beginning of your thread. May be you remember me. I had a website and made a few Euros on Adsense a month. By now I have 5 websites, about 10.000 visitors a month and make about 3 Euros a day on Adsense and about 20 Euros a month with Amazon.

Why am I making only 3 Euros a day with Adsense when I have 10.000 visitors a month and a Click-Through rate of about 10%. Here is what I discovered:

Assume I have a webpage optimized for "Computers Online". Google says position 1-3 cost $5 a click. As we all know the content network pays considerably less, but one could make $1 per click. But in real I get much less. Why is that so?
When I check my server logs I see that up to 50% of my visitors come from broad match. When I click on referrer I arrive at search pages for keywords like "Buy computers online for cheap", "Where to find cheap computers online" etc. (these are all fictional terms but that´s not the point) My webpage does also rank high on those search terms. At first I think that´s great. I´m ranking on more of Google´s search pages than I did know of. When researching those keywords in Google´s keyword tool it says not enough data from last month and also none or less than 100 on average. The cost per click for position 1-3 is 5 cent.
Since up to 50% of my visitors come from those cheap search terms, Google is forced to give me cheap Adsense ads. Or the advertisers would pay much for cheap traffic.

If I remember correct you said your average click is worth more than 50 cent. Don´t you get broad match visitors that bring down your average income per click? How to get constantly high click prices?

Yes I do, the lowest price I seem to get per click is around 20 cents, it doesn't really fall below that. Sometimes I get clicks over $2 as well and my analytics show me that the higher priced clicks are from the more competitive keywords that is true. It does average around 50 cents per click, obviously some days are a lot better than others.

For this blog, I do occassionally get a below $10 day still whilst other days it is up over $30. Once the blog started ranking reasonably high for the comepetitive keywords I am sure my site has been a target for some strategic placements as well which certainly boosts the income per click.

As always it is very niche dependent as well what sort of price you get for the clicks. You might find some niches that the competitive keywords have a high cost associated with them and yet a broader related keyword phrase is worth peanuts. This is why your backlinking and on page SEO needs to be good to leave Google no doubt what your content is about.. The trick is to make the content primarily focused on the expensive keywords.

Indeed. This has become a very useful thread. Perhaps, if I have some extra time, I'll make a compilation of all the useful information in this post and put it all into one document then upload it and share it with you guys!

Sound like something you would be interested in? Just let me know and I'll do it when I get a chance. I'll also add some things to it as well

Thanks,

Been reading through all the replies here and following what was done, what worked and didn't work. All I can say is that I learned a lot here and there is great information. Sometimes our worse failures lead way to our greatest successes!

Thank you to Steve and all the posters!

All,
Even though I am a newbie to IM and Adsense, I found Steve's original ideas quite useful. Having said that, I wouldn't think there is much to be added from buying his book. I also mistrust "secret techniques"

I'd be impressed if you got through it all in one night. There is a lot of reading to do here. A lot of good information contained within though. It is worth the time spent, and the subsequent headache that is sure to result from staring at a computer screen for that long.

Hello Steeve,

I owe you a thumps up....I use your strategy to find a niche though not monitizing through adsense. without post and backlinks, I am at position 4 of google first page.

Thanks again man....

Steve,

After finishing reading all 33 pages of this thread, I simply say congratulations! Your thread proved that with effort and determination anyone can take a brand new site from making nothing to making plenty. Granted you failed in your initial goal, but you achieved and proved so much more that that doesn't matter. Duplicate the process and one can certainly see where it's possible to be earning $100 per day with Adsense alone, and even more when combined with affiliate offers.

Ironically I don't frequent WF very much as my time is spent elsewhere. I only stumbled upon this thread while showing my wife's aunt how she can make some money online with a simple Wordpress site and adsense (all she wants to be able to do is make about $500/month). Your thread combined with showing her my own earnings I feel have given her enough incentive to get started. It also makes me want to redo a few of my other domains I own one at a time and see if I can replicate the success you have had with this site on an aged domain.

Thanks again for this very informative thread....

Yeah I was looking up a search phrase I found in one of my site's stats the other day and discovered an article I wrote awhile back completely owned the entire front page :p

I just found this thread and was wondering how it was going with the site Steve, as time should be up for you to be making $100 a day.

I was wondering, as I couldn't imagine making $100 a day with adsense, but I guess that is what makes you an advanced warrior.

Let us know how it is going, okay Steve?

>I was having a hard time seeing this as a success and I couldn't understand how valuable the information was if it wasn't working. [JoeBil]

I'm arriving late in this discussion, having just discovered it, but beg to differ that it wasn't working. Any blog or web site that brings in any money at all is, in my opinion, a success. With Google continually changing the rules, and alternatives like AdBright and Clicksor having limited offerings outside North America, if one get can Google-sourced income, I say "great!".

True, he did not meet his goal, but he has documented his methods quite well, and I would love to have a monthly income from my blogs.

I will be going through all 33 pages of this thread and copying Steve's highly useful texts.

Steve,

It doesn't matter what the other people say about you, but you know who and what you are doing for others. Down in your heart is what it is count.

Even though you failed this thread was a great read. I didn't get a chance to finish the whole thing (afterall... I've got money to make) but I just wanted to thank you for the "case study".

Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Sound like something you would be interested in? Just let me know and I'll do it when I get a chance. I'll also add some things to it as well

Thanks,

James
I'd love to have a synthesis of the main infos of this challenge thread! Please do it!
