    How well can you monetize with google adsense given good website content, and how big of an empire/internet presence must you sustain in order to make substantial money?

    Best regards,

    Mike

    (Meaning, can I make money off of just one site? Like a review site for instance.)

    Sometimes I really wish this forum would install a search button and add the option to sticky threads that would be helpful to new members. But then again, that would make it too easy.

    I earn about 200€/month with one website. If you really want to earn enough to make a living, i think you'll need a couple websites at least. Also note that if you earn a full living with adsense you'll have to pay taxes on it (aka about 35% of your earnings).

    Working on my MNSites now, by my research, 1-3/day is about average, although i have seen it as high as 5-15/day. This is not my actual experience (although I used to have an web app that generated 3/day with adsense). So for 3000/month, you would need to make 100/day. For 100/day, you would need 34 sites that generate 3 bucks a day. Most people shoot for keywords worth about 1 dollar, but this doesnt mean that you will get a dollar per click. Lets say your keyword has a cpc of 1 dollar, you may get 30-50 cent a click. Sooo, 30 cents per click x 10 clicks = 3 dollars. But no wait! Clicks depend on 2 factors, (that I know of) amount of traffic and how your ads are implemented into your website.

    Lets go back to the 10 clicks we received. I would say the average click rate is 3%, so (10/3)x100 = 333 unique hits a day. There are themes that "promote" clicks and have ctrs of 5-15 percent.

    This is speaking from a mathematics point of view, but unlike other things in IM, I dont think MNS is a numbers game or not at-lease when it comes down to factors you cant control (google ban hammer).

    When you build your first 10-20 sites, you may notice some may earn more than others, and other may not earn anything. So your number of sites to make 100/day may vary.

    Then you have another issue....

    Google Ban Hammah
    In my research, I noticed that some people that make decent income with adsense, get slapped. Also I noticed that others are not affected at all. This can be rectified by promoting products, cpas, or other ad networks.

    Want a shortcut to 100/day? If you have 1600 dollars, buy 160 (i think it was 160) mns from one of the BST's. Big investment, but I sure that if you have the know how, you can do good with them and "sharpen" them. You could earn your money back in 16 days :D

    This is just me talking, and some of what i been reading over the last month or 2. I too dont like the BHW search function, i perfer google, try to use

    inurl:"blackhatworld.com" MNS

    to find more MSN journals and QnA, middle click those links, listen to some music, drink a tall glass of beer or juice, and read up!

    Wish you the best, sorry for typos, I am watching the Presidential Debate :D

    It might be safer to project $2/day per site, following nerfsmurf's plan, and plan to build or buy 50 sites to build to $100/day with MNS. A second or third monetizing element is definitely recommended, along with alternate sources of traffic besides SEO (YouTube, social media, etc) to protect you from Google double hammering your MNS (banning your adsense, AND de-ranking you).

    I would love to get into the MNS building myself. I have a limited amount of coding knowledge. My biggest hang ups are 1. finding a free and reliable keyword and CPC search engine
    2. getting free or nearly free domain names to use for sites.
    I need a little kick starter guide to help me. I am not opposed to buying sites. where can I find the cheapest?

    do you think there are better alternatives to managing 100+ micro niche sites to make a steady $100/ day? nothing else seems easier to me, meaning MNS seem to be a "leave it and forget it" source of income as opposed to other methods.

    A good product trumps Google pinning you down, but also is not for everyone. Good ad copy trumps seo every time, but again not for everyone.

    Forgot the social media! On one of my authority sites, I realized that I get increased amounts of traffic on certain days, and I just realized that it is when I make a post on facebook!

    If your site caters to women stuff, pinterest would be awesome for you!
