I HAVE to respond to clarify some sweeping generalizations:
To somehow argue that if a website's primary or only source of monetization is Adsense it is bad website is just being ignorant. There are thousands of excellent websites, including the New York Times, that use AdSense. I run two excellent websites with six figure incomes from only AdSense. They are industry leaders, have 100% original content created by professionals. The reason that we work with Adsense is because of all the ad platforms that we have tried, AdSense has worked the best for us.
Like any other ad platform, I am sure that there are spammers and cheats using AdSense but to somehow argue that Adsense equals bad website is not fair. If the websites were so bad, Google would not have been able to create billions of dollars in revenue from AdSense.
