Do people still create web based proxy sites for profit?

    I remember back in the days it was a huge market.

    Create a web based proxy and put some Adsense in it = $$$.

    I was wondering if this method is still effective and if someone is using it? Maybe the monetization technique has shifted? Maybe the market is overcrowded?

    I think both are valid points, but what is your opinion?

    Can't tell you from the now, but the same back in the days I run a pretty succesful web proxy, alone measured in page views. Many page views.

    However, the adsense earnings where really low. I switched to another ppc, changed the layout, changed many things. Result: still low earnings, some bucks per day.

    Would never go back to web proxies.

    most of the sites monetize with adsense and infolinks
