    I've been reading all over here and other sites that with all these Google updates things are going downhill with SEO, backlinks etc.

    I wanted to try earning money with adsense following a method called viral adsense cash -

    Outline -

    1. Create viral content site like Viralnova or Upworthy
    2. OR an alternative news site like zerohedge.com
    3. OR a Numbered List Sites like listverse.com
    3. Drive traffic through Social media or by ads from Outbrain.com or Taboola,com
    4. Slap Adsense on your site
    5. $$$

    It looked interesting but I read that this method is not working well nowadays for newbies. Outbrain not accepting new sites and the expense is too much while profit is low.

    So WTF should I do ? -

    Some say we should keep on working on SEO, while others say it doesn't matter now, average page view per session or time on site and bounce rate is the new ranking factor.

    Again I read that Social traffic is not good for adsense , don't know why :/ I'm also not very fond of adsense because they are known to ban for slightest mistakes and also competitors can just click on my ads and ban my account right ? o_O

    So instead of a Viral site , what should I focus on ? Micro niche sites , or try on building an Authority site ? Are these even working now ? how many F*****G types of sites are there ?

    I thought about building amazon review sites following Erica Stone's Extreme Review and other products . I will start it but heard it takes a few months to get some cash out ?

    I thought about sites with WP Azon or something similar but heard they don't earn that much as well and google doesn't rank them very well .

    I'm working for a long term solution . So I'm not really sure what I should do ? Should I build my own site, build my list a promote affiliate or my own products instead ?

    Or start Freelancing again or Arbitrage stuff ?

    Most of the methods seem outdated by now and I want to try something that will work nowadays in 2015-2016 ?

    What would you have done if you were to build everything from the beginning.

    OP you only read, read, read and read ... this leads to a big mess in your head right now. Why don't u choose 1 method and try it. Without testing and only reading you are not going to achieve your goals.
    Lets say I create a thread: "It's really hard to build microniche websites ... don't go for it guys" you are going to read this thread and say to yourself "Damn ... Fu*k it I'm going to search for another method".

    Asking the lounge for pizza money is definitely not working.
