I have a couple of sites that I run google on. One is a single page site with a script tool a lot of people like to use. It makes decent money all from this single page site.

I also run a site with hundreds of articles in a specifc niche area and it does quite well, though certainly not to the levels I would like it to go.

My question(s) is those that run sites that have thousand of pages, or tens of thousands of pages, how do you fare? How many hours a week are you spending maintaining that level of a site? Is google on each and every page?

I maintain 400 pages of my website with a single click.
How?
I use MS Frontpage 2003 Dynamic Templates technology.
It's simple, it's fast, and it works.

My site has about 3000 pages covering various topics so my AdSense income has been fairly stable in ratio to the traffic onsite. I'm trying to add at least 100 to 200 pages per month but it's not easy. Who said making money would be?

5000+ pages, almost 6000. We've been up since 1998. And we add about 5-10 articles/case studies/news a day. Used to add so much more when we were syndicating our content. We have a team of writers however on our staff to write the content.

How do we fare? Very very well.

Google is in most of our pages, except for our discussion forum. We make more from banner ads there than Adsense

- A site with 100K+ pages.
- 2 ecommerce sites 100+ pages each - selling goods/services. Not based on ads.
- 3 more content sites with around 200 pages each.
- Developing more useful content and tools... ;)

It's a fulltime job to maintain and improve all of these sites/services.

One of my major sites is about 45k pages at the moment. Niche info site, no e-commerce stuff. I run AdSense on about half of it.

Site is staticly served but dynamically generated via a set of custom databases and scripts.

Hi TheDonster

You said you add 200- 300 pages per month to your site. Can you please tell me if its your full time or part time job?

Honestly I desperately want to quit my job because G is giving me far better than my regular job.

Hi Chikung,

No it's definitely my part time job. I can't commit to working on my site full time just yet, nor do I want to. I would strongly advise you to keep a full time job before quitting anything web site related. I'll recount my history for you a bit: Started selling on eBay about 3 years ago for fun to supplement my income. At one point, I was selling in a highly competitive field and clearing 1K a week. At this point I'm thinking "BYE BYE BOSS". Then overnight, the bottom fell out, my field became super competitive and I decided to start my site. 3 years of hard work and learning part time and now my site still only provides me with about 1/3 of my regular income. Plus don't forget, a twitchy Google algorithm can wipe out your traffic overnight! If you're making good money with Google now, keep at it. If you know what you're doing, it will only grow over time. And none of us here can predict what will happen to AdSense in another 2-3 years down the line. Eventually I think a lot of webmasters here can regard their site as a supplemental retirement fund. (Bill & EFV not included :-)) Just my 2 cents.

I have 4,000 pages and i covered almost everything you can think from A to Z and it took me one full year to build those pages everyday. You name the topics, products or services, i got them covered unless i missed it.

The income is over $3K month from adsense alone but i dont trust this income.

I have 9 sites with a grand total of about 3000 pages. Interestingly, my smallest site (under 100 pages) generates the most AS revenue every month (by far). It is just a homepage, a few product pages, and maybe 80 article pages. It took about a month to build, and I add a few new pages every month. It makes about $1200/month from AS + another $150 or so from affiliate sales.

I didn't know it when I started it, but it was kind of a "perfect storm" site topic. It just happened to be very popular (14,000 or so daily searches for the main keyword according to Wordtracker), but also had a comparatively low number of competitors. Hit the jackpot with that one. Haven't quite duplicated it yet, but I'm working on it! Love this business.
