Today, I saw an Adsense ads at a hardware review site that really interests me. I tried to put my mouse on the link so that I could see the URL so that I could manually key in the URL instead of clicking on the ads. (I always do this, so if you are an Adsense publisher, it is very hard to earn money from me. RFOL) But I can't see the URL. So, I have no choice but to click at the Adsense link. I was brought to the web page which has nothing but Adsense ads that is related to that widget advertised earlier at other web site.
I was really curious. So, I decided to check the homepage of this web site. It has nothing but a search box that says "Search to find results on any topic." No contact us, about us, or any information whatsoever about the purpose of the web site. Even the logo of the site has broken link.
I did a search on a few widgets and all the results are related to the keywords I used. And guess what? All are Adsense ads.
Does Google allow this? The site is nothing but a Google Adsense "search engine." The site is a few months old with 0 page ranking. I doubt anyone would be interested to use that "search engine." So, the owner has to advertise with Adwords hoping that those who clicked on his Adwords will click the Adsense links at his web site.
Is that how some Adsense publishers are making a lot of money? Spending money on Adwords, etc hoping that they could earn more money from Adsense.
If that is how Adsense so-called UPS clubs are earning their big money, I feel really frustrated, because I've been working so hard late at night creating contents (believing that I could not put Adsense on pages with no content) just to earn a few dollars per day from Adsense, while those with money, all they need to do is advertise with Adwords, etc to bring others to their web sites which have no content whatsover except Adsense.
