After reading a bunch of the threads here, it seems that Adsense want you to all ready have some traffic before you even apply for the Adsense account. Is there any 'official' amount of time that needs to elapse?? I thought I'd read 6 months, but it didn't seem to be an official policy. My big concern is getting banned from Adsense without any reason. I want to have quality, original content and be able to monetize it, so I thought I'd start a couple of blogs and then put ads on it, but if I have to wait 6months, that would put a large obstacle in my path. Would buying an 'aged' URL or domain get me around the waiting period. and where do I find the amount that the clicks pay??? STG- I can't find it.... I have the Adwords Tool- but I'm not sure if that's what I'm looking for. -what I'd really like to find is a list of adwords, sorted by total # of searches and then I could find a niche from those listings- does such a thing exist? Thanks.
