Where are all the so-called AdSense gurus, why aren't they speaking out?
My guess is the AdSense gurus figured out long ago that the minute you tell someone how you're making money, a bunch of wannabes try to duplicate your site instead of doing their own thing. Some simply try to scrape the site to hopefully get a slice of that pie, buy knock off typo domains, anything and everything just to cut into someone else's income, therefore the common sense thing to do is simply keep your mouth shut.
Yes, but if we are talking about speaking out on forums like WebmasterWorld wouldn't these big publishers be posting anonymously anyway?
I think that if we had enough members here to make a viable and decent sample group and the polling facilities to conduct a simple but anonymous poll, we could gain a little more insight.
Ok, you may say that the gurus don't waste time in forums let alone participating in polls, but who needs gurus when they are probably the minority anyway. Those average to reasonably successful publishers who participated would have nothing to lose in answering what would amount to a few yes and no answers anonymously.
I do concede however, that we would probably have difficulties in building a viable sample group anyway.
