    I have used adsense in the past and made good money without any effort. This was 4-5 years ago. Wondering if it's worth it to go with Adsense these days? and what is working?

    I need to make around $2000 per month.

    If you can drive traffic to it then it is the easiest way to make money, in my opinion. You may make more with other sources but Adsense is easy. No preselling, and the user doesn't have to spend money.

    If you can drive traffic then yes, no effort needed. Beside that, I think price slightly decreased over the years in general, but traffic largely raised.

    Traffic is still the key, I believe the ad serving have Improved over the years. Adsense now have Many Different sizes of ad units.

    You can not Guarantee $2k with adsense unless you have Amazing Traffic Coming Each day and yeah the risk of getting banned.

    Revenue is down from the good old days so you'll need more traffic.

    Agree.. Its not any more easy as it was before 4 years. You need more high quality traffic to hit the target...there are many other ways these days you should use rather then depending on adsense

    If you made 2009 let´s say $500 with 20.000 UV´s these days you need over 50.000 UV´s for the same amount of money.

    Numbers are only example !

    Thanks for the replies so far. It seems more traffic is needed today compared to old days. What is the reasoning behind this? Is it smart pricing by Google? Is google taking into account age of the website, authority, backlinks, social etc?

    Ya, you need solid traffic but if you are pushing big traffic media.net will normally pay out better then adsense. If you are pushing smaller numbers then adsense will probably pay better.
