    Hey guys, long timer lurker here. I've been reading and have been learning a lot of things about internet marketing. I started IM back at 2011 and fell into quite a few scams and whatnot. I've tried lot's of things but my forte was in SEO and I spent a lot of time in that. I ranked a few sites but never really hit the jack pot because I kinda gave up mid way and so, I went back and forth trying to balance school life and making money online. It was definitely frustrating and it made me want to give up completely.

    But after 5 years and over $2000 in total investment in this project, I'm finally happy to say that I'll be making a good ~$70/day with Google Adsense. I know I could have reached this amount in a year if I had invested more time but, it is what is is and I'm pretty happy with the results. Since I'm utilizing paid traffic, I don't have to worry much about SEO but, I do spend about half my income on the paid traffic.

    The next step is of course to expand it.

    Invested in traffic. Does your mean you buy traffic to make money with adsense? What kind of traffic do you buy? Thanks

    I don't really know myself as I am using a third party source (passiveadsense.com) for my traffic. I pay and they send.

    Nope. I'm still using my same old Adsense account from a few years back.

    Don't scale it up yet. Check if you will get paid first and if you get paid, slowly increase the traffic.

    i had same story. Was making a few bucks a month on adsense, I did some work and increase traffic and then my account got banned. Tried to enquire why but only ever got automated emails back from google. Was really odd because I had only 3 pages with adsense on them and never made more than 2 or 3 dollars a day, and had never clicked my own ads once to even check them out, but got banned for "suspicious traffic" even though I never had a day over 10 visitors ever. So I havent even went back to adsense because I fear they will pull the carpet out from under me the first tie they have to send me a $1000 check.

    That's unfortunate. Earning $2-3 a day with only 10 visitors is pretty suspicious actually but, for me, I'm doing pretty good so far for the past 4 months since I started this. No email or anything.

    So, you buy traffic from a brand new blog where the author forgot to fill out the "about me" description? Or maybe you are just promoting your website with this thread...

    My desperation to make an income got the best of me. =] But I was referred to the site. Just thought I'd share it.

    How much are you spending for the traffic per day?

    I did paid traffic on an account that I didnt really care about three years ago. They finally banned me about four months but I made $12k before they did so it was def worth losing an adsense account over.

    This is way too risky man, hopefully you will have made back all the money you invested before they catch up with you.

    Whenever i see offers that seem too good to be true I always ask myself how would anyone give away such opportunities to make a lot of money when they could easily use it for themselves
