Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Use the heat maps, and write good quality original copy, daily. If you can't write the copy yourself get someone else to do it for you. It's easier and you can really get loads of sites up very quickly. I am just about to put on a writer full time -- it's a good feeling.
Doing well with Adsense, after sometime, will become a no brainer.
You gotta put the hard yards in first, make good content, test your adplacements, read this site, etc etc
Or you can just do what other people do, steal the damn content off another website
Bloggers call that an "aggregator" and I'm actually shocked how many of those aggregators are out there posting repeats of Webmaster World threads, blogs, web site content, it's just silly.

Are people who look at photos worth having as visitors to a site? Other than to increase the number of visitors? I have the impression that they aren't.
In my experience, photo galleries don't do very well with AdSense, but photos are valuable as illustrations for articles because they make the site more appealing to readers.

Oh, but there is a secret. And I'm going to tell you, now. Don't tell anyone else. Shh.
And the fact is that the secret which "seems" to be effective for one site may not "work" for another:-))
Ohhh...did I just let something out then?

Instead of photo, I put adsense right after the first paragraph of my articles. It works for me very well.
Sounds like short-term thinking to me. I'd rather have repeat traffic and more opportunities to earn revenues from my readers.

I believe if it's working for me for the last six month, It will continue to work for the next 5 to 10 years. If it stops working then I'll change the strategy. About the placement of adsense, I think my readers love it. They are seeing relevant links on what they are reading.
1- Read between the lines
2- Ignore the posts by members who brag about how much they're making (they're most likely full of Sh-t ;))
If you have more money than brains buy one or two to get you started, otherwise just read this forum and ask yuour questions and you should be just fine.
After lurking on WW for 1 or 2 months you could write one of these books easily and you'll be just as qualified as any of those authors.
