    If you are going for a very specific niche and find very low competitive keywords you can make a decent amount of sales in time but you need to work on ranking them via backlinks, blog posts, yahoo answer etc

    As above, yes, just focus on a Long tail keyword, target with quality content, build a variety of content including images, videos, etc to make an interesting website. Then monetize by pushing CPA or Adsense adverts. KaChing!

    I've found that blogspots and wordpress blogs are easier to rank than regular websites if you have a limited budget at least since you can just blast massive amounts of links to them. I tried to rank my main website for a keyword with tiered linkbuilding and the 1st tier web 2.0 is outranking my main website for the keyword I'm targeting.

    You can earn a decent sum with free blogger or wordpress, If the content is great then ping it to search engine for quick index and spread the post links in social networks to get social traffic.

    yup, in fact I'm using one right now. The free blog was actually our project for the university but I keep it after we finished the project. Before the current blog, I also have a few blogs that make money but I shut it down due to the google update.

    Answer is a simple Yes.

    Avoid autoblogging software, illegal stuff and read TOS carefully.

    Picked a niche, depending on your SEO skills, flow through and be patient. Results will show overtime. I knew of a blogger selling advertorials space earning 10,xxx monthly, certainly wish you all the best.

    Best Regards,
    Commoner

    100% Yes! It is possible to earn a decent amount from free Blogspot and Wordpress. I myself use it and I'm earning extra bucks from it. Just write awesome and original content, do SEO, SMM, and in the long run I am confident that it will be a great source of an extra income for you.

    There are many people who use blogspot / wordpress blogs and achieve a great income you just have to ensure you are making original and interesting content.

    The only thing you have to worry about is if you violate TOS then the hosting company can tear your stuff down without warning, so keep that in mind when building a site like this. It's definitely doable, you just can't use a lot of the more black hat methods or you'll get slapped.

    From what I know on wordpress you can not place ads like adsense, etc. unless you have posed WordPress on your own domain and server, but then there is no way of talking about money on the free solution :) On blogspot you can earn, but you cant change site as much as wordpress, only a bit code at the page code, you can't put on websites any affiliate programs or ads that require copy some files to the server.

    Yes you can make money, but what I feel is
    with a free blogging platform, you give up some of the control and custom options. Instead of using wordpress or blogger, you can choose to open a hosting account and use the wordpress script because this is much more powerful and it comes free with just about every hosting account out there.

    I feel it is not worth going for free blogs - first of all such blogs are not your property. When you work on free blogs and increase their value, you can not even sell them. Secondly, such blogs can get banned anytime and all your work is lost. So it is better to invest in a domain - you can get adfree hosting from companies like 0fees.net if you do not have budget for hosting.
