Adsense doesn't work. Google has cheated thousands of us out of millions of dollars.

Please do not purchase the domain, help us get our money back instead.

AdSense works just fine.
But it is not a "get rich quick" deal.

Unless you have exceptional content, and the promotional skills needed to get enough of the right targeted traffic expect it to take a while.

I am confused !

However Thanks for replies

@ken_b I expect that it will take 6 months to 1 year to get $50/day with average articles ?

@incrediBILL it does not work ? I like to work in web development only !

Tell us about your promotional skills. What methods would you use to build traffic to your site?

As ken_b said

It's not as cut and dry as "write X articles and receive Y amount of money in Z amount of months time"... for instance, the topic that you are writing about is a crucial factor in determining what kind of income you can expect.

you will not get $50 a day in 6-12 months from zero, unless you are like some top shot blogger with 30k followers on twitter. If you're as I expect you are, just some ordinary guy who will turn out ordinary content to ordinary traffic levels, you might get up to $10-20 after a year. Again, it depends what niche. Legal articles with 1000 views a day will obviously attract more money than history articles with 1000 views a day.

It works. But it takes time, a lot of work, perseverance and determination. Also the right niche. It won't make you rich overnight, but with enough effort, it can produce a nice revenue. We started our current site from scratch in 2006 and are making a nice living today.

That's a start, but it's wayyyy too vague.

What would you post on Facebook and how would you get your Facebook page seen? Do you have the knowledge and the equipment to make an attractive video? How would you attract Twitter followers? Do you have any budget for paid promotions?

Answer those questions plus a gazillion more and you'll have the beginnings of a promotional plan.

You don't get it. There are so many factors involved...your topic, your website design, your user location, etc. There's no magic formula, and if there was, no one would share it with you because you'd just be competition.

Just pick a topic you think people would want to come back to your site for, and build it the best you can. You'll either make money or you won't, but it's likely the latter. It's extremely late to be getting into the game and AdSense is NOT a get rich quick scheme.

The answer as to whether you can make money at it depends on how skilled you are in a multitude of disciplines. No one here can tell you. It's something that depends on how much effort and work you put into it, and how viable your business plan is. If you don't have the money, time, or will to devote to this project then perhaps the answer is zero, it's not for you, get a job working for the government. If on the other hand you are willing to invest your time studying, researching, investing MONEY and TIME then you have a chance.
