    Maybe.. maybe not. I won't tell you what I made in April, but I'll say this.. I am smiling very big.

    I DO know of others that are making more than I am. And that's fine! There is more than enough to go around.

    I am currently not making jack squat either with adsense but I can tell you one small piece of advice if you want to make it big with adsense...

    you must first believe that you actually WILL earn 10,000 a month, even better you must convince yourself that this day will one day be true and that this day is coming...

    Back to the S corp thing.

    Not to get too technical. With an S corp profit gets distributed to each of the shareholders in accordance to their basis(reletive to the amount of shares each person owns) then taxed on their individual tax returns under their individual tax rates. Usually found on a K1 then reported on Schedule E (i believe).

    Problem is that Uncle Sam does not like this since certain taxes are avoided by persons who WORK for the company. If you look around there are many documented cases won by the IRS/Government against S Corp owners/shareholders escaping employment taxes. These cases pretty much set the presidence of shareholders who ACTIVELY WORK for the company should be paid a REASONABLE wage. When that is done you get to pay taxes just like a normal job and so does the company. Whatever is left - expenses can be distributed as profit/loss to individual tax returns which usually constitutes in tax savings.

    So if you are the only owner more than likely you work for the company even if it be an administrator doing paperwork. The gov. can come back at you IF they wanted.

    Other than that these tips on here are great! Keep it up guys.

    SM - Great Thread!

    With 100's of sites to manage, how do you have enough hours in the day to make sure that each one is positioned on the SERPs. Things like forum posts, link building, etc.

    From what you said, it looks like you set up your site, optimize it, send out press releases and watch the traffic come to you. Is this correct?

    Kind of... I have a routine I do for each new site. I usually wait to add them to directories until I have atleast 5.

    This thread is VERY inspiring for me. I am about to take the plunge into building websites for a living, and it was very encouraging to read that most of the steps i had planned, like setting up multiple sites under an S corporation etc was done before with great success. There were also a lot of great tips i had never thought of, i cant say thanks enough!!!

    Do you use your existing sites to generate traffic for your new sites? If the answer is yes, how important is this to you in developing traffic? I am asking because it seems as if the easiest way to build an internet business is to add new sites that are related to each other in some way.

    Totally. I think its very important to stay with one vector and slowly branch out into related subjects.

    I use a lightweight version of postnuke. I took out all internal stats/whos online/ user session stuff and implemented my own cacheing engine. My bigest postnuke site currently has almost 170,000 users and at any given time it has about 20-30k people online. Its the bigest postnuke site by about 140,000 users ;) ALexa ranking of 3700. It gets alot of traffic. It works but only because its striped of all the crappy db calls.

    Currently I have been playing around with Drupal. (http://www.drupal.org). I totally love it at first impression and it has seo friendly urls out of the jump. Also has excellent built in cacheing. I am going to be playing with it some more but I highly recomend Drupal depending on how much non cms standard code you want to do.

    Shoemoney, you just think you're all cool because you're making a lot of cash from Adsense and have some impressive sites. Pfffft. Well you're not. I tripled* my Adsense revenue this week, so there!












    *From $1.00 to $3.00

    Seriously, I just wanted to chime in and say thank you for sharing your knowledge. It is appreciated. If you're ever in AZ, hit me up, i'll buy you a beer.
