I have a 2 unrelated sites which I am the only owner, and what I want to ask is, is it possible to earn high ($1000+) by 'playing it clean'? By that I mean doing everything I can to make it a great site for visitors, all content is original, easy to navigate, ranks high, updated often etc but not go out of my way to earn, so no popups, no large square banner before content etc.

Basically if I was to use adsense but not have money making as my sole intention, is it possible to earn loads?

Or do I need to hire content writers, write on topics i know nothing about, open 9 more sites, scrape content and so on .. all of which destroy the authenticity of the internet in my opinion.

You could look at it this way: There are 100's and 100's of topics which can get you 50 cents a visitor. They key is to happen to stumble on these topics and have the correct ad placement/colors, etc for your site.

For me, simply moving the ads, reduce ads to one per page, and blend them caused a 3x increase in $/visitor.

If you can get up to 50 cents per visitor then you'll be setup to be able to drive traffic via Adwords. Adwords visitors will get you a higher CTR.
