Those who make a good living from Adsense "keep it to themselves".
Well, not all of them. But they may just not do it here on WebmasterWorld.
I've met a guy who created a highly successful site by himself. He's been featured in Adsense case studies, his site for several months was on the homepage of Chitika, and he's basically the poster boy of the IAB Long Tail Alliance. He is soooo willing to share what he did to anyone who'd listen -- except that he prefers to do in via conferences, seminars, and personal networking activities, not on forums. I've met him in several conferences, and he tells anyone and everyone who'd ask him how he did it.
So to say that these mega successful folks just keep it to themselves is not totally true. You just have to find where they share their secrets.
