    There are many wallpapers and tatoo sites on flippa.com. it looks like it is easy for these sites to get a lot of visitors.
    I just wondering, are the adsense income numbers of these sites there trustworthy?
    like one site there is claiming to have 1xx,xxx monthly visitors and $8xx monthly income.
    It is really not hard to upload a tons of pretty pictures.

    The income is probably legit but the main issue with wallpaper sites is keeping your Adsense account safe. A lot of these sites just scrape copyrighted images and eventually get your Adsense account banned. Might get away with it for a while (especially if you're only doing $XXX) a month, but it becomes more of a problem as you scale.

    Well think about the "why are they selling it" clearly if you are making good money from something why would you just sell it? Unless there's a problem with it!

    They are against Adsense TOS, it's quite easy for them to get a site going and earn 3 digits while going under the radar (at least for some months) so if they can unload it before it gets too big it's a huge win for them. And you will be left with a banned adsense, forced to a worse alternative that pays 10-20% of Adsense

    Wallpaper sites are having low COC 0.01-0.03, so to earn decent amount of money - traffic must be huge.
    If you decide to create your own site:

    1. make original wallpapers
    2. post every day 3-5 images
    3. use alt with keyword
    4. write a 150 word description under each image
    5. build quality backlinks

    Some people think if they have copyright policy, disclaimer, privacy policy, that they'll be able to go by without being banned from adsense, but that's far from the truth.
