    Do not create sites for adsense only

    If you create sites with the sole aim of making money from adsense, you will not do well on the whole with few exceptions. The problem with createing sites for adsense often leads to sites that might be described as low quality with people unlikelty to return or link to your site. If it was not earning from adsense, it might not earn from anything else. Whereas if you create quality sites, not only will it earn from adsense, you can monetise it in other ways. This may not hold true for all sites, but there is far greater chance of doing well in monetising a site that's built for the user and not merely thinking about keywords and search terms in regards to how much you will be found on the search engines and what CPC you might get with adsense.

    To be honest, I was guilty of this when I first started out in webmastering a few years ago, but over the last couple of years I have realised to do well in this field I would need to maintain high quality sites so they can earn revenue various ways and not just from adsense.

    I must stress I still have a couple of sites I would still would call adsense sites, but I have spent quite a bit of money redisigning one of the the sites and and added high quality content as well as one or two other features to strive to become less 'adsensy', if I may call it that. This will hopefully give people more of a reason to link to the site naturally, whcih is very very important if you wnat to maintain good rankings on Google.

    Thanks for this article, the last few weeks I was pretty much busy just making websites for Adsense, but before I was from the point of view you're now.

    Because of this thread I will start making websites for the value first, afterwards for the success

    I learned this a long long time ago (but it also took me a long long time to figure out).

    Good advice for newbies

    My aim was with the minisites to have visually appealing and NOT parked lookalike sites. If it looks like it's made purely for Adsense then most people would just close it right away (high bounce rate - no chance for clicks), the trick is to have it look like it's not for Adsense, but in reality it is - with the possibility to extent it with other monetization forms.

    I never would have thought to make a site with just adsense alone, or only for that. It might work for some, but overall its a dead end.

    I think you should always choose something you are passionate about though. The passion reflects in your work and gets you much more money in the long run.

    I just made an adsense weight loss site. The articles are good, design simple, and CTR very high.

    I guess this is a more successful site, but my main goal is to use it to get into Adversal.

    Part of the google adsense guidelines clearly states that you can not put adsense on pages will little to no content.

    There was a guy who had his adsense account banned because he put some banners on a blank page.
