    I use to run a successful web hosting company from 1997 - 2003 that had about 700 customers. I sold the company in 2003 to a friend of mine, and from there I went into the on-line marketing field. Since then I went from about 250 personal sites to about 65 right now. Mostly niche blogs, with some general video type of websites.

    3 months ago I was doing about $4 - $7/day with Google Adsense, and honestly, was pretty happy with that. As long as I got my $100.00 from Google for the month, I thought it was just extra income. Although something in the back of my mind said, "Couldn't I make more though'?

    I've actually been on this site for about a year, but just registered today. I've probably spent (ummmmm....) about 100 hours or so studying the posts on here learning as much as I could learn. I've probably spent another 100 hours reading eBooks. Most of them free and others, I admit, I bought from people on here. Most of the information I already knew, but the 10% I didn't know has made me quite a lot of money.

    Starting 3 months ago I created a spreadsheet that listed every single of my sites. I entered in information such as:

    Domain Name
    Pagerank
    Unique Hits Per Day (by month)
    Unique Hits Per Month
    How many articles I created
    How many videos I created
    etc....


    After that I found out that roughly 50% of my websites didn't have any Adsense code on it. Before I figured, no one was going to my sites. So I never put anything on it. Once I put Adsense on 100% of my sites I immediately went from $4.80/day to $10.00/day. So that was my first lesson learned.

    The second thing I did was I signed up with an SEO Article Submission website at $47/mo. I used their article submission service (their free web-based spinner) to submit my articles. I was also able to retrieve spun articles at 90% to give my niche wordpress blogs more content. At the time I had roughly 40 blogs that I setup to retrieve 1-3 spun articles per day. I started to notice an increase in traffic after 3 weeks where I went from $10/day to $17/day. At this time.... going from $4.80/day to $17/day was freaking amazing. Going from $144 to $510 was- I was just shocked. I honestly at that point, took a month off from my personal sites.

    I came back to work on my websites and figured... if I could go form $4.80 to $17/day.. what else could I do?

    The second thing I bought was The Best Spinner for $57(I think). I was tired of taking the time to manually spin articles, so I gave this software a shot. I was amazed at how many articles I could spin. Instead of submitting 4-5 articles per day, I could spin 70 articles a day... nearly an article per site per day.

    The third service I bought was 3WayLinks.... I have since uploaded all 50 of my websites and seen a big increase in traffic. By just getting back-links and going up the Google SERPS.

    From there I bought ScrapeBox, which truly changed everything. I don't use ScrapeBox like most people use it. I use ScrapeBox to only find *VERY HIGHLY RANKED* websites that use *any* kind of blog that is similar to my blog. I'll find about 25 of these sites and *manually submit* comments. Comments that are very much on topic, very in-depth and truly adds information to the blog I'm submitting to. Instead of a quick 1-2 sentence generic comment... my blog replies would be 150 - 200 characters. By doing this I was receiving a 95% acceptance rate, and I'm still seeing this today. I'm sure I could of found these websites by doing Google searches, but Scrapebox made this so much easier. Funny thing is (side-note) some of these blogs I posted on... I created good relationships with the owners. Some of the sites i've swaped ideas with, and others I was able to setup some linking. Some of these sites are P7 and P8. Social Networking... gotta love it! =)_

    Lastly... although one of the first things I ever purchased I utilized my VideoSwiper account more. A year ago I bought 10,000 credits (videos) but never really used this. I then bought 10 domains (simple $1.00 .info domains) and set out to created 10 video websites. From Country Music, Hip Hop, to Sea Life, Quilting, Castles etc... Very niche, but very good video websites.

    By adding in all the software, spinning articles, automated wordpress blogs, and some vBulletin forums I run... I have been able to increase my Adsense from $4.80/day to an average of $95/day. My big goal is to hit $150/day. Once I hit this I want to then start selling products/services as a side income.

    I just wanted to briefly post this and say that I've learned quite a lot from this forum.... but I know.. there is still quite a lot more to learn! If I could have the ability to bring in $7k/mo... why would I still need to work for someone else? :p

    One of the most inspiring threads I've ever read here. I'm definitely going to tuck this one away for building more sites.

    Very Inspiring and well done!

    Do you write your articles and then spin them or do you spin PLR articles.

    As for your "niche blogs" - do you generate/spin your own content or do run auto-blogs?

    manual posting ftw =]

    i always giggle a bit @ ppl who auto comment 100s or 1000s of blogs with a generic and stupid comment like "great post . thanks!" and then whine about why they are only getting 10% of their comments accepted. :)

    GL and hope you hit your goal.

    LOL, I have a few blogs without any spam prevention plugins installed and you should see the amount of these kinds of comments they get each day! It's actually pretty funny.

    thanks button. i have been busting my ass on blogs for the last 5 or 6 months.
    it keeps going up, but not as fast as it should be. im thinking a couple more months i hope. people have nooooo idea when they start how much work it REALLY is to get a site to produce a couple bucks a day.
    sounds easy, isnt easy

    if you don't mind telling, how evenly is your adsense revenue distributed over the 65 sites?

    I'm always curious when I see posts like this, if one or two sites are pulling in a large % of the income.

    CraigC: Most of my content I get comes from an article submission website. I only accept spun articles that are over 90%. For sites that get $1.25+ per click I write articles myself and spin them.

    BassTrackerBoats: Before I setup all my sites with adsense etc... I told myself that this is SEO. This will take time, which it's hard for me to be patient. I knew I had to stick with it, and eventually I would see results.

    mark0v: Honestly I am only using 2 Adsense accounts. 90% of my sites are on my main account, and the other 10 percent are on my new account. I make sure that my 2nd account at least hits $150, as I don't want to miss a check. Although the way i'm going that $150 should easily be $400 by next month.

    greentitanium: I've learned it is easy once you know how to do it. Although that doesn't mean you can spend less time working on websites. 3 months might seem like a short period of time, but I've spent a lot of time

    Good inspiration for those who are procrastinating like myself. I'm confused on what foot to start the step. I think I'm confused by reading a lot... unique content or not, autoblog or manual blog, adsense or shezblogging or CPA or all of the above.
