    Hey Everybody!

    For the most part, I've recently been out of the money making game online. I managed to pull $11k last summer when some of my Facebook stuff went viral, but haven't made much to speak of since then. Since I think Facebook is too dangerous to mess with these days, I want to try what everybody else seems to do here...Adsense websites. I plan to use Wordpress because I hear that it's extra Adsense friendly. I want to buy CTRTheme ($20) to help optimize the Adsense ads. I have a spinner that I will use to write about 50 unique articles for the site. Then I would buy Scrapebox (the BHW discount ;) $57) to post backlinks. I currently have a domain name that I've had for a year related to free laptops for college students. Anyway, below are the questions I'd like answered. If anyone feels like they want to give advice, feel free to number your answers if that makes it easier :)

    1. In theory, will this make me a decent amount of money with Adsense? How much are we talking? (sorry to sound so ignorant....I just have no idea how likely it is that I'll be indexed well and make much)
    2. Is Scrapebox the tool I want to buy?
    3. Will I need to buy proxies for Scrapebox? How much do those run?
    4. I currently have the laptop related domain name. Should I keep it and use it for laptop related content, because the domain name is older? Or should I get a domain name with keywords related to "auto insurance" or something that has higher bids on Adsense?
    5. What's a good niche to get into? Do I want to avoid stuff like "auto insurance" because it has many searches and too much competition? What's a good tool to use to find good keywords?
    6. .com or .info domain name?

    Thanks so much to anyone who has some advice! Truly appreciated! :)

    This depends on what kind of keywords you target, what position you will be in, how much the CTR is, etc.
    2. Is Scrapebox the tool I want to buy?
    One golden rule that "beginners" do not follow: Buy tools to automate what you are doing. Don't buy tools to start doing things. What do I mean with this? Some people buy a Youtube program and start working with Youtube as soon as they have that program. Don't do that. Start working with Youtube first and then start looking for a Youtube program to automate what takes time.
    3. Will I need to buy proxies for Scrapebox? How much do those run?
    You can either choose to use private proxies, or scrape a list once in a while on Scrapebox.
    4. I currently have the laptop related domain name. Should I keep it and use it for laptop related content, because the domain name is older? Or should I get a domain name with keywords related to "auto insurance" or something that has higher bids on Adsense?
    Auto insurance is not a niche. It is saturated so impossible to rank for. Go for smaller keywords : ~10K - ~50K searches a month. Try to get keywordrelated domain names.
    5. What's a good niche to get into? Do I want to avoid stuff like "auto insurance" because it has many searches and too much competition? What's a good tool to use to find good keywords?
    Avoid saturated niches. Use the Keyword Tool that Google has. You can easily check the competition. A good tool is Market Samurai. If you can't afford that try using Traffic Travis.
    6. .com or .info domain name?
    Doesn't matter.

    6. does matter - .info looks spammy. Choose .com, google also prefers them ;)

    No it doesn't. .com or .info doesn't matter. If .com is taken you should go for .info before any other. A .info-domain can also easily beat a .com-domain. .Com doesn't add any extra value

    The link in my sig has keywords that range from $1-$30 per click with low search competition that you can build your sites around, as for traffic. Thats up to you.

    1. AS money is generally on the slow side, but with a high traffic site, it'll add up.

    2. Scrapebox is a great program, and once you get used to it, you'll be dominating.

    3. Definitely buy private proxies - about 20 a month.

    6. .com for sure.
