Pointless idea, for too many reasons.

You expect to fail?

I do not know what the OP expects or trying to prove.

"create and market?" Seems no point to the exercise as whatever is reported is only valid to the keyword/theme of the site. Other keyword/themes will behave differently.

Sounds like you're going to create a site or blog for the sole purpose of displaying AdSense ads.

I really don't think it is a good idea either. There are just too many variables involved. How you do with your adsense is not necessarily going to be the way someone else does with their adsense!
On the other hand I am a Working From Home consultant and I always advise that if you have an idea that you would like to try out then you should go ahead and give it a try!
I have seen lots of blogs that talk about how they are doing with their adsense earnings but they haven't stopped there! Some have written ebooks on the subject and have started podcasts and the like - so who knows? - you may be able to tap into something that makes it work (and makes it profitable) for you.

This same topic has been reported on several times in past years right here in this forum. As I recall, they began with a bang and then fizzled out after a couple of weeks.
A little advice: 60 days is an embarrassing understatement of what real success requires.

I remember this as well. A lot of enthusiastic posts at first, people helping out and getting into the whole thing, and after a few weeks, the OP is never to be heard again, with the last posts being:
- So how did it go?

I always thought it was a scam to use us as fodder for an e-book.

dbbern2... I've always seen it as a beg for expertise "in the interest of science". They take what is offered and give nothing back. Another short-cut search for that "filthy lucre" ala googleness.

Fair points one and all,
I can conclude from this, that the water has been thoroughly tested and the answer to my question is "this is not a good idea"!
thanks for the input I'll take it on board.

I disagree. If you have the time for the experiment and can give us the results then judgement commences. Before then who can really say.

Why do you disagree ?
For starters the OP stated it was an "unscientific adsense experiment"
2: The site is not established, so traffic will be low, and that will reflect on earnings.
3: No idea of niche - making the test pointless.
4: Test is too short.
5: Too many variables to execute a proper test, and results wouldn't prove a thing, because the same tests could/would produce different results with a different niche - or even the same niche, but different country.

Exceldan, if you have the time and are willing to try, then try it.
Yes there are many variables to just "try" without order or not scientific method... that would make it pointless unless you have some goal or direction.
Take in count what the others members have said to end up with something useful for you and the community (if you are willing to share). Others have come with the same intention but we never saw them again on the forum... or feeding the test. Again, there are many variables, I have tested with some of my sites even from scratch so results vary.
But then again, experimenting is a good way to end up with some results as long as you do it scientifically... to have some logic and sense in the result, because at the end if something good or bad comes out we would like to ask many things, and you might end up with questions too. Better do it in some way that you can provide yourself some answers from the experiment.
