    Hi there

    I have zero experience on adsense. Currently, I'm working on a pet project which will scrape all websites and gather infromation such as broken links, title, competition, alexa rank, social profiles etc etc. Basically lot of data-mining.

    I will publishing this on a website and will do proper SEO for each page so that someone searching for a person name or sitename will land up.

    I have seen many such sites which aggregate information such as hosting, alexa/compete rank etc.

    Do these sites bring any revenue? Some of the sites I have noticed have less than 10k alexa rank in less than 6 months - I'm not sure how well traffic converts for them..

    Let me know if you have any insights.

    What you have to remember is that site owners and webmasters rarely click adverts or have ad blockers in the browser

    Thanks - will use CPA offers and SEO software etc. Any idea on how much such sites actually make.

    Eg: sitetrail has alexa ~4k with about 200k visitors.

    Roughest estimates :)

    Actually that sounds good to me. Everytime I do search for phone numbers sometimes I end up at those types of site. They may not make buku but they make money and thats good enough for me.

    Let us know how it works out and what your results are. Peace.

    Cool. Was actually looking to see if there would any insights in getting approximate revenue these sites make each month so that I can see its viability.

    I have given you estimates!

    Every website has no boundaries, the only boundaries is down to the site owner!

    I could get a website to earn £xxx where you could get the same website and make £xxxxxx or the other way round
