    I have been away from SEO for over a year now, but I am wanting to get back into it.

    Me and my GF are planning to travel in September (9 months away) and I am looking for something to build which will help us make some money while we are away. Are authority sites still worth building?

    I am home all day everyday, I can write several articles per day, and pour all my hours into it, but I don't know how the SERP's are nowadays, and if it's still the same process to rank, as it used to be.

    I have a couple more questions:

    1) What is the best keyword tool/service now?
    2) Is Adsense still the best way to monetize?

    Thanks for any help! It's my dream to travel the world, and make money while doing so, so I am willing to work as hard as I can to make that happen!

    Happy New Year

    Of course they are, just make sure the content is top notch. I have an Authority site that is getting 40,000+ unique visits a month. Makes a good income.

    I intend to.

    Is your site targeting a broad amount of niches, or is it just focusing on one? I'm not sure what to go for!

    I don't know
    For keyword tool: I personally prefer " Ultimate Niche Finder " - you can find it on here: Misc Section

    Adsense is the easiest way - but not the best way in my opinion.

    Don't rely on it.

    By all means go for it, but the times when a blueprint was guaranteed to work are over.

    Fuck Google and especially gaming it. Time to start looking elsewhere.
