    for newbies to make some money, here is a simple method that has worked for me.

    create an article directory: i used WP and an article directory plugin. all you need to do is create some categories. you can do so by copying them from existing directory sites.

    what happens is that 'spammers' (sorry for lack of better words lol) will find you and post articles (majority of them, as expected, are spun and barely legible writings). so it is basically like they provide you with free contents for you to run adsense ads. at the same time, you can moneytize with text links. i used infolinks(?). i limit the word count to a minimum of 1500 words, and outbound links to 1 or 2.

    in a couple months, i had 10s of thousands of articles, and made up to $20 a day from adsense. what happened was somebody posted things like "watch live streaming tv".. some kind of popular tv series. evidently, it was not real, so desperate people click around on my site.

    it last for less than a year when i got too many articles for the server to handle. the site went down for a week when i was too lazy to fix it. my experience is that when a site went down for some 5 days or longer, google kills your search ranking.

    another method to create maintenance free sites is universal-fact sites.

    with these sites, i made money without doing any seo whatsoever. just remember - never to let your site stay down for an extended period of time.

    Its very old method, if you make article directory like Ezine or Goarticles then it'll be profit generating for you...

    Thanks for the tutorial but it wouldn't work in 2014. For one, Google doesn't any more give value to backlinks coming from general article directories, so there wouldn't be that many people who would actually submit articles to your article directory. For two, a general article directory with spun content wouldn't get the necessary rankings to pull in the required traffic. And last but not least, it's in Adsense's policy that your site must have original content, therefore, you couldn't just copy past the first few articles.

    However, it would be a great idea to make a niche specific article directory, and to manually review all article submissions. Yes, that would mean that you won't get as many articles as you would when you'd accept everything, but quality exceeds quantity. It would make your site more trustworthy, and a more attractive place to get a backlink from. So SEOs would actually work harder on the content they'd submit to your article directory, you'd get better quality content, better search rankings, more money...
