    Very true.

    I think most of those who make serious money that are not an MSN are people who have many sites - 50 to 100 sites, for better paying keywords, all earning monry

    wow, sounds like a sweet deal. :)

    I guess running multiple sites is the best option, you can ditch ones that are fledgling or have too much competition.

    The bummer about this is if G sees suspicious activity in one account and red flags you...all accounts (channels) go bye bye :(

    Agree. I think Google's "one strike, you are out" policy need to be changed.

    If you ask me, it is time well wasted. Let's say you did 10 sites. Let's also say you knew a lot about those 10 sites content, had proper linking strategy and good html etc... skills. Your income would only be limited by traffic and clicks. Bottom line... more eyeballs equals more clicks equals more money.

    Time well wasted...

    More sites does not necessarily mean more money, but I must say it does increase your chances. The more pages you have out there (on one or more sites) means the more pages you have available to get indexed by search engines... and this in turn increases your odds of receiving free traffic... but one thing to remember is all this takes time... you must be patient. It could take up to 6 months for some engines to pick your pages up, etc. So don't throw in the towel after a month or two... keep building good content and you will have a good chance of being rewarded...

    What SE takes 6 months? I generally give it 10 days on 50% of the SE's I submit to, and a max of 30 days on the rest. I would say the average is about 10-14 days for the most part with the top 14 I submit to. If it takes 6 months, I would not bother..
