    My Dear DP Friends,

    I started my adsense journey a couple of months ago. I was surprised to see some sites that have absolutely no useful content, even improper grammar just for sake of revenue?

    Is this good, I think google shoud ban those websites that are designed aiming at Adsense DOLLARS apart from providing useful content in them...

    What do you think?

    There are thousands (millions?) of websites "built for adsense". Annoying but true. It is against the adsense TOS, but that doesn't mean there arn't loopholes...:rolleyes:

    Well you can also build useful sites with good content for adsense ;-) Or there are websites that were just orginally written without money in mind (wow, yeah they are still around ;-)), and after are year they put adsense on it and found out it makes nice money. Can you tell the difference at this moment in time ?

    Agreed, sites with use product feeds, scraper sites and the stuff build with e.g. article bot are anoying, however are from a money perspective lucrative. But it will be a short moment of glory for them.

    Cheers

    I started building a community site before I even knew what adsense is... In the process of getting that started, I have learned a lot about adsense and how it works. I am still in the building stages, and I have ideas for several other sites, but my personal goal is to always focus on the community and content I want first. I am working on sites that I would want to use. Then if I can work advertising in as a means of creating a revenue stream. I intend for the site to always come first and foremost and the advertising second.

    I think google built the system. They can disable or enable people at anytime if they dont like what they are doing.

    The bottom line is when publishers dont like something then something gets done about it. I cant tell you first hand if I write to google from as a normal everyday user reporting a site taking advantage of adsense nothing happens to them.

    If I report the same site from my company account with adwords budget to my adwords rep I get results with updates =P

    I don't really understand why anyone cares about what other people are doing,

    is it jealously that someone might be getting paid while you are not?

    It makes no sense to me , people hate another webmaster , for making a site that isn't up to "standards"

    I have datafeed sites, aws sites, etc, they help me afford to live, but some people find it "annoying"

    Quick I better go get a job in cubicle somewhere, so that I don't annoy people with my sites.

    Frankly I think most peoples sites look like garbage design wise, but it doesn't annoy me, it doesn't suck and I don't wish them ill.

    believe me I do not care at all unless its my ads on some assholes site that is inflating my budget. Just like google I care the most when it hits my wallet.

    I have only complained 1 time in my life and when adsense didnt do anythign about it I pulled my adwords budget. WHen my adwords rep asked me if there was anything they could do I told them I was not going to advertise anymoe until xxxxxx site was delisted from google.

    The site has not been completely delisted but for the words I was bidding on its not found.

    I agree to that. And then we have people posting sites that are cheating and get idiots posting things like "oh, just leave it to Google, they will deal with it"...
    Yeah, let the cheater continue stealing my money... These scumbags should be exposed like the thiefs they are

    Quality leads to traffic and traffic is the only thing which really matters. Right at the moment I have a friend building a very large aggregator site. He's doing it because he really thinks the blogging world needs it. If he is right he'll get traffic and make money on Adsense. If he's not or the site is low quality he will not get the traffic.

    It does not matter how you put the content on your site: what matters is that it is useful to a person arriving on the site. I have a few competitors in my niche who just post random keyword nonesense at Blogspot. I'm on page 1, I can't find them...Hmmmm.
