How to become rich with Adsense

Case Study, going from less than 40 dollars per day to over 300,000.

In 2003 appeared this shy post on the forum Webmaster World:

40 dollars per day, is it bad or not?

And in 2006 another note, the tone is very different with this title: "How I make a million in three months":

I'm probably the first independent publisher in terms of page views. I wonder if what I'm going to say may help you but here I know who can help you be successful with Adsense.

Whoever is behind this nickname, Markus Frind, the webmaster of, the first free dating site. He has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, and several other magazines.

By spending an hour a day on the site, but with two moderators to filter out unwanted ads, the webmaster earns millions of dollars on a free site, through advertising.

What is his recipe for achieving this result? He exposes it us in 6 points:

  1. Get a database of IP addresses, so you can find out where the traffic comes. Needless to submit pages to an audience that does not need it. It also allows to display ads for visitors to countries where they earn the most.
  2. Create a site that gets repeat traffic, ie where the visitors come back every day. SEO is not what will make you rich, with millions of regular visitors, you win much more. Whatever the topic.
  3. Let your visitors create content and a lot of it. (This is the case for a dating site). Reviews of visitors on services are a good example. Build the site around the visitors and where they are part of it rather than for consumption.
  4. Do not enter a market where there is already a number of competitors using Adsense. Create a new market or a free service where competitors require fee (this the the case of Plenty Of Fish).
  5. Make your site simple, the pages will load faster with no more than two advertisements and one or two pictures per page. Users should find what they need immediately.
  6. Visit forums and if surfers do not talk about your market, chances are that you may win money.

We must recognize that most successful sites, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. fit this description.

Nonetheless it will always be needed to have a good expertise in programming and web development to achieve an efficient and easy to use service.
