    If you have a site like EzineArticles or Tradekey, then why not, you can make a living only from Adsense

    WHY:

    Big Traffic:
    Big Hits:
    Big CPC:

    You have to have multiple sites with decent traffic. Or an absolutely massive site with crazy traffic - like biztrenz said. It isn't a method a person typically starts out in, unless a US dollar can go along way where you live.

    There are many DP members who earn thousands of dollars in adsense earning only. However your goal should be to develop one good website with quality content and work towards making it successful. Once it works then start replicating your formula.

    Depends on how much money you make, right? A lot of people can make a living off of their AdSense income alone. Most can't though...

    I can´t make a living with my adsense income, but it´s always a nice cash at the end of the month, and sometimes it doesn´t require any effort from me. It´s hard to get a life with adsense money, but i think that with hardwork that could be reachable.

    I can tell you this. I wouldn't want Adsense to be my only source of income but I can cover 100% of my business and living expenses with just Adsense. And still have money left over. Not going to go past there.

    You have to approach Adsense as a Revenue Model and be committed to making it work.

    The danger is putting all your eggs in one basket and not having a backup plan. I do NOT build sites solely for Adsense. If Adsense went away tomorrow I would populate the sites with different opportunities.

    yeah this pretty much sums it up Adsense is REALLY hard to launch off and it isn't for everyone so try other methods too and see what you're comfortable with

    Very much agree with ^

    It can be dangerous relying on only one source of income especially if you need it for a living. Adsense is good for supplement income thou.

    Find a micro niche, build your website on that, replicate it. You will earn much money. And you can live from that adsense earning.

    I believe some of members here can make living with adsense income only. I hope some day I can do it too. But it is a long way to go before getting there.

    I think We can make living with adsense, but I think It's also depend where We live. For people in India or Indonesia, then I think $1000 a month is enough. I think make money using adsense for that amount is not that hard. But people in NY or CA should make around $6000 to live. Then I guess They should be 5-6 times harder to make living in adsense. Isn't It?

    I'd suggest you start with one niche, if it works, then go on and duplicate your method. if you can have 100 similar sites, adsense will pay you very well.

    Yes there are some people who make a living through adsense. But it take a lot of time a lot of effort to make good money regulary.
    You also need a good niche which pays good $$. You can start off small concentrating on one site and go on from there.

    You can make living with Google Adsense income in the below 2 cases:

    1. If you can develop a website like EzineArticles or Squidoo.
    2. If you have 1000 websites generating a minimum of $10/day.

    It depends how expert you are in Blogging and SEO. Some people earn much here having lots of effort to put in.

    @markov: I don't know about you, but I don't really need $10000/month to live (In Europe)... but maybe you have a very extravagant lifestyle? ;)
