I never click on any Adsense ad. I hear people say they make peanuts from Adsense ads compared with the time they spend creating content. Today I was reading an eBook called Adsense Secrets 5 (copyright 2011 so it seems new). I noticed in a couple instances the author mentions how to do something in AdSense and mentions one of his sites. I go visit that site and I don't see any AdSense ads! Makes me think that even this author gave up on using AdSense. As in after he published the book.
So does AdSense still make money? OK.. let's be more specific... how much time does a website owner spend to make $10/day. I know this depends on the topic of the content. You pick a topic and tell us how easy/hard is it to make $10/day for your own experience.
