    Firstly because it is a lot of work to get a forum off the ground, and even if you can do it, it's also a lot of work to moderate it.
    Most traffic is repeat traffic and so the CTR of forums is known to be really low, and the risk of invalid clicks is high (because of member who want to help, or because of people annoyed by the forum).
    But yes, a forum with a lot of traffic will nevertheless earn you money via adsense, but I also look at the work/money ratio, and it's a lot of work to earn some money. If the same amount of work was put into niche sites or other kind of sites, the return on investment would almost always (like 99.99%) be superior to a forum.
    SEMrush
    But then, that's only my tips I give to adsense beginners/intermediates, but anybody feel free to start a forum if you feel confident about it! I don't mind at all, just not me, thanks.

    What is the age of your website ?
    How many sites do u maintain ?
    is it global content or this is for country based website ?

    From my experience, I saw that , adsense revenue increases every month - step by step. Have you experienced this ?
    Best wishes for your 500$ adsense revenue per day.

    Hello, I have already answered those questions about the number of sites I have, origin of traffic, etc. That's why I ignore them each time someone new to this thread asks them.

    As for the increase of revenue, it's true that it is step by step, but it is because traffic is increasing that way. Revenues are directly linked to traffic, not to the age of your adsense account.
    Also, I'm now over $1000 per day, this thread is several months old.

    Congratulations...it all makes my tiny little mind spin. I have a total of $24 all time :( I suck at it..... But I am glad to see wwwSENSERELYcom is posting again. I can't believe you reached out to help a person or two and they treated you so badly. What is the matter with people? And why would that guy with the website accept your help and them remove your link so quickly? That is just mean and greedy.

    Yes, the calendar site has been dropped by google and is now receiving only traffic from bing and yahoo.
    I think I overdid it by buying 1 domain name per month and with 4 languages it was 48 domain names.
    Perhaps only doing it with 4 domain names would be less considered like SERPs spamming.

    I took a big holidays of several months, but now I am going back home for a few months and I shall be working on my sites again.

    It went above $1000 per day on average for a whole month (my record month so far) but now it went back below $500 a day. I am confident it can go above again because the good season (christmas) starts again NOW ! :)

    Grats on $500/day! And thanks for sharing some tips. Did all your earnings just come from adsense? Or is it a combination of adsense earnings and maybe some affiliate marketing on the side? :)

    No, I am talking only about adsense here. But I also have earnings from other ppc&cpm ad networks as well as affiliates programs.
    But in this thread I am referring only to adsense.

    First, congrats to you for such a remarkable achievement. Could you tell us how many sites you have that earned you $500 a day. Niche sites? or authority sites?

    Fantastic success story. Great tips too. Good questions soopoot. Is wwwSENSERELYcom a one man show, or is it a team of people that is putting in the work to generate that type of income. $500 a day equates to about $15,000 a month and about $180,000 a year that's a healthy income for a team of about three people (maybe even more at a squeeze).

    Is it one site pulling in hundreds of thousands of visitors a day or many sites doing the same thing? It would be interesting to know.

    don't chase high paying keywords (CPC) because you won't be the only one and probably not the best at SEO so... instead find a niche with moderate to high traffic with low to moderate competition (between webmasters) because it's better to earn $0.1 twenty times than $1 once.

    Hi, I don't know if I answered that already but yes I work alone and I am not good at giving other people tasks to do, I'd rather do it myself if I can, if I can't then I find another way around the problem. I would have more success if I was good (or at least if I tried) at gathering an online team of trusted individuals to either do freelance work for me or to work as a team. But If I work online it is because I don't like working for a boss or for customers. I never tried to work with business associates but I guess it would be the same problem as boss/customer for me, I don't want to waste my time dealing with human-human work relationships.

    As I said earlier I have about a dozen active sites, with most of the money/traffic coming from half of them. Otherwise I have also many more domain names with a beginning of a site started on them, but my lazyness means I have more ideas than motivation to realize them. Often my motivation goes as far as buying the domain name, installing a website with a few content and not finishing it.
