    Hi,
    I am interested is it profitable to run an article directory with 90% unique and readable content. I assume Adsense is the best option to monetize.

    Any personal experience is greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure if it's profitable anymore. The Panda update affected lots of article directories and it's been written that even Ezine articles was badly affected. So I'm not sure how a new directory could profit.

    Maybe a niche article directory might work? Maybe some members here are running successful article directories and will chime in?

    There is a group developing on the same for Auto Approved directories. I would say set it and forget it. Be a part of it and enjoy dual benefits. I am sure group is already over 200 members and there are ppl keen on having 5/10 directories each too.
