Are Adsense Website Packages Worth Buying?

Are Adsense empire building packages really worth the money? I have seen many promising to set up content ready Adsense sites with a click of a button, complete with supplied articles for each of your niche sites. They are very tempting to a webmaster who wants to minimise the chore of building Adsense sites by hand.

So what do you all think? These Adsense Empire packages look good, but are they all that they're cracked up to be?

If you could build an empire with those packages you would use them yourself, you wouldn't sell them to competitors.

The only empire being built is by the seller of those empire building packages to the gullible.

'Nuff said.

They are typically filled with duplicate content that is being sold and resold over and over... Hence you will find your "empire" of sites no where to be found in search results.

If you plan on buying all your traffic, then I guess it does not matter... but if you want to rank and get organic traffic... they are useless... not to mention they might get you penalized/kicked out of Adsense depending on where the content came from...

That just screams "get rich quick scam" to me. But then again, anyone who expects an easy shortcut to riches deserves being scammed in my book.

You can also look out for instant Amazon stores with "guaranteed traffic".

Heh! heh!

Sadly people do fall for it.

People are so gullible they will fall for anything. The recent string of ponzi schemes is an example. They promise you the world and deliver nothing.

So what's the solution then to building a successful chain of adsense sites, if these packages are not very good?

Writing and searching for articles to pad up your site is a laborious chore. Just wish there was an easier solution to article amassing on my site.

For me it was 10 years and about 100,000 hours of work. Give or take.

There really aren't many (if any) shortcuts anymore. Oh, there used to be, and the SERPS are still full of a lot of crap sites with crap content.

If it were easy, everyone would have done it, and everyone would be rich, wouldn't they?

Blimey, if building an Adsense business is THAT hard, then I may as well give up now!

If you want to make a lot of money quick without much effort, I have this friend in Nigeria. I might be willing to introduce you to him.

I'd be leery of trying to build an "AdSense business." Over the long haul, it's far more productive to build a site that has intrinsic value to users and that can be monetized in different ways. AdSense is merely one possible source of revenue, and--like the advertising business in general--it continues to evolve. What works today may not work tomorrow, and in any case, publishers who don't look beyond AdSense are leaving money on the table.

I believe this is the only way to succeed at this. When I was building my site it was 12+ hour days almost 7 days a week for the first 2 years. Then once you have created a significant amount of content you can take it easy and occassionaly add some new content.

These "AdSense packages" remind me of the "Earn money from mail order" pitches that used to show up in the classified ads of magazines like POPULAR SCIENCE, or the "Earn Money by Writing Greeting Cards" ads in WRITER'S DIGEST. Who knows--maybe those mail-order and greeting-card pitchmen are now selling AdSense packages at the age of 80 or 90. :-)

Hilarious. There are no "get rich quick schemes" that are documented, otherwise they'd have to share money with competitors. It takes work and it takes a while to see some returns.

When I was building my site it was 12+ hour days almost 7 days a week for the first 2 years.

It takes work but not THAT much work. I advise everyone here to have a social life outside of being a webmaster.

That hard compared to what?

Digging ditches? Flipping burgers? Robbing banks?

Besides, your page content won't do squat unless you know SEO as the site won't sell itself.

I don't believe in those packages, anyway I think there are exceptions. I began with one site and added more sites to my basket.

There is one site that grew more than I expected it and is taking more time that I have available so selling it appears to me as a good idea. The thing is, I'm a one man band and don't think about hiring anybody (no no and no). I can deal with the websites I have except from one that I really care about, but the readers are asking more and more... more than I can give, so... it is a business opportunity.

Complicated, I know. But as usual, there are good things that we all sell, and that doesn't mean they suck. The truth is, most of the sites on sale are dead animals already.

I think that some of those get rich quick Adsense packages do actually work. I have 15 site that each earns over a million a month and they all used the same package.

Email me at yousoundlike@sucker.ru and I'll send you details of the package and how to pay for it. You know it makes sense.

Now, if you want to minize the work you put into it, you can always try looking for somenoe to outsource it to. Or maybe hire a VA.

Who said having an online business was any less difficult than having a real life business?

The web is not a shortcut to riches for the lazy. Sure, some get lucky and become rich... just as some who like to play basketball are lucky and good enough to play with the pros and make millions.

For the rest of us, it means hard work for our bread and butter.

However, if you like what you're doing, it doesn't feel like hard work as much as other jobs. And that's the key.

But if you're looking for get rich schemesr... that's not the right attitude. It's a road to nowhere.

Like everyone else has said, those AdSense packages are a pile of you know what. If you really think about it, you will realize that what they are selling you, they have sold to possibly hundreds or thousands or tens of thousand of others so you would have a carbon copy of all of the other sites.

To make money with AdSense you must have original content. It takes work, effort, and time, but you can do it if you put your mind to it.

Remember this........ all good things come to those who wait, or this........ if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Any worthwhile site requires hard work, simply having trillions of worthless rubbish sites just makes for further clutter.

Imagine how fast the AdSense Content Network would be debased as also worthless if people gave up searching because of irrelevant results? It's bad enough as it is! How advertisers would desert the content network even more because of bad value?

Do what I did, build a community forum.

Saves me a hell of a lot of email answering and I can add my two cents every so often. Builds site loyalty and I'm absolutely certain much of my other affiliate income is generated because of it.

If you think building a legitimate Adsense business is hard, you will be in for a ruder shock when you discover just how hard it will be to generate decent earnings with your prefabricated 'Empire'

The Adsense smartpricing algo has a way of punishing any publisher it deems unworthy. Who knows how it will score prefabricated sites which are essentially nothing but duplicate content.
