    i am looking to earn some thing from adsense and so going to create, about 30 blogs on low competition high search volume niches. Although i have some seo knowledge but typically new to adsense .

    I need advises on either self hosted blog or a blog in blogger/wordpress which is good to generate traffic & get revenue.
    And clearly i am not going to automize any thing, 90% process are to be manual. its a long time process ,not going to rush it up.

    Self hosted blogs would be the best option as you have control over every aspect and don't have to worry about getting banned. Also, a .com domain name will in most cases be favored in the eyes of Google more than a subdomain.

    It all comes down to if you can afford the monitorial investment or not. Having a web 2.0 blogging network (blogger, wordpress.com etc...) will be free, but if you use custom hosted domains you have to pay hosting and domain registration fees. A blog network of 30 domains would cost about $75 a month to maintain ($300 a year/$25 a month on domain registration and $60 a month on shared hosting), this is not including content creation which could cost you way more.

    Personally, I would create a free network using web 2.0 blogging platforms until I start making enough money to completely cover the self hosted network maintenance fees.

    I'm glad you said your not going to rush the creation of the network, the key is to take your time and not leave any footprints or raise any red flags (same Whois, HTML similarities, same web hosts, same themes, interlinking, crap content).

    Here are some resources that should help you out:

    Instead of creating a blog network with 30 sites, you might want to consider creating one site and posting all the content there. In that case I would go with blogger. It's a free web 2.0 blogging platform service provided by Google and ranks better than the others, and one authority site is easier to manage than 30 micro niche sites in a blog network.

    If you choose to create a 30 web 2.0 blog network then here's a list of free platforms:
