    The competition on the web has gone up so now instead of advertisers only have a few thousand websites to choose from the now have millions, they can pay a lot less per click now. If you look at his stats he was getting around $14 per thousand people and I have a few high traffic websites and the per thousand is at around $3 via adsense.

    Alexa rank is not very important. Your rank goes up the more times people with the alexa tool bar visit your site. And my guess is that more webmasters
    have the alexa toolbar installed than fighters.

    Guys he has pictures of his house, office, pool etc, online. Do you think he has all of that stuff by putting fake stats on the internet?

    all i see here is google trying to lure gullible newbies to sign up for their freaking adsens just to have them banned for no reason. For that 130000 that google paid him, what do you think how many people that had close to 100 (that means close to payment amount) had to lose their accounts just to make "business" profitable ? We will return the money to the advertisers, yeeeahhh sure they will, hahaha. It's funny with what you can get away from when you have the power, and the support of the "big fish" that will reply to my post proclaiming that i am a kid who was banned and now i'm angry cause of it, hahaha, that's life.

    That was back before google allowed advertisers to seperate bids between the serps and content sites. It was very common for people to make $100k a month. I have a friend who bought his first 2 houses just with adsense money. Since the change, content sites only earn about 5% of what they used to, so most site owners have switched to different ways to monitize their sites.

    I could be wrong but I think I read that he used services like Adwords to direct traffic to his sites so what you may be seeing is a gross revenue amount. Can't be 100% sure on that I think I recall reading that but could be wrong.
