If There Was A Special City of Adsense Users, Would You Move There?

Would you move your business operation to Adsense City in a small country?

A while back there was a discussion here in this forum about low tax countries that are good for Adsense or IT business.

What if a small nice country would create a special new city called Adsense or something like that, with low taxes and all the necessities for Adsense users. Would you go there and move your family and business there?

Image all the citizen's are Adsense users, down the road there are few Starbuckses, all over Wi Fi hot spots and etc...

Think serious, would you go there and live?

It's interesting how many Adsense users are in the world and how many of them earn at least 500-1000 dollars a month?

Along with:

- The shantytown for the people who have been kicked out of the network.

- The soapbox in the park for unhappy AdSense publishers.

- The guys who stand on streetcorners and murmur, "Pssst....Wanna see some really hot keywords?"

- The auditorium for "How to Make a Million Dollars in 10 Days with AdSense" seminars.

- The Arbitrageurs Club, where MFAs hang out.

- The Ad Unit-arian Church for publishers who worship money (and whose members are encouraged to stay above, not within, the fold).

No, I wouldn't move there. That's the beauty of the web and Adsense. You can do it anywhere.

europeforvisitors--- You funny.

No way! A city full of people who all have the same obsession? I'll stay in New York, thanks, we all have different obsessions. Makes life more interesting.

Actually it's supposed to be an adventure, but an interesting idea: Low tax Adsense city.

Must be fun.

If Sylicon Valley brought people from around the world for IT and life is so expensive in SF, Adsense city with very low taxes should work too.

lmao @ europeforvisitors...

Nope, wouldn't move there. It's an interesting idea but I live in a beautiful place and I think it might get annoying to live in a town full of people who do the same thing that I do...

Europe your good, above the fold... hahaha

That sounds cool "Club Arbitrage" gee what kind of a club would it be? Somewhere where we could spend the dollars we make very unwisely.

Yeah I'd move there as long as we had our own central bank and army, oops I mean police force.

We also need stocks in the town square where can put any fool that gets banned.

No, because publishers who'd been smartpriced would always be complaining about the penny stocks. :-)

Will Google support EFP or are we going to have to cash cheques in US dollars?

Will copyright laws apply?

Will it be somewhere with nice weather?

What will be the 'buy-in' price?

How much do you anticipate beer being on sale for (per pint)?

Will the law be based on English common law with appropriate variations? Will there be an external court of appeal?

What form of government do you propose?

Once I get the answers I'll let you know if I'm interested!

Heck no... where I live, 1USD = RM4. If I make USD50 a day, thats equivalent to a Senior Manager's pay! Even better, remember that guy from Vietnam where 1USD = 100 or was it 1000?

Google will have its own office, I mean embassy there and we could take a spin down there and ask what the hey is going on.

It sounds like it might be a lot like that town in Jim Carrey's Truman Show (1998)--along with all those wonderful added features listed by EFV.

Nobody would cut their lawns.

Houses never get painted.

Wives always biting their finger nails.

No, I prefer to live with sane people.

Sounds like EFV is campaigning to be the first Mayor of AdSense :)

If elected as Mayor I promise:

- The shantytown for the people who have been kicked out of the network.

- The soapbox in the park for unhappy AdSense publishers.

- The guys who stand on streetcorners and murmur, "Pssst....Wanna see some really hot keywords?"

- The auditorium for "How to Make a Million Dollars in 10 Days with AdSense" seminars.

- The Arbitrageurs Club, where MFAs hang out.

- The Ad Unit-arian Church for publishers who worship money (and whose members are encouraged to stay above, not within, the fold).

A bit late I know, but I laughed out loud when I read that! People here at work looked at me funny ;)

Nice one EFV =)

You lost me on the word "city". Like someone else said, the beauty of AdSense, or any other non-job income, is being able to live where you want. I have yet to meet a city that I want to live in.

There are so many other factors, that are far more important, in deciding where to live. You could probably fill a city like that with the small percentage of people that would find it appealing, but I bet you lose citizens pretty quickly once they start missing other things.

And give up the simple life in the mountains where men are men, women are women, and sheep are nervous? Actually, I think we have more llamas than sheep.

Although, maybe I could finally get broadband if I moved to AdSense city . . .

The city couild have issues with unity. If there were train tracks running through the town, most of the happy, really creative, musically-talented, and artistic types would be in Macland, and the rest would console themselves in the bars over in PC Hell.

While it may start as a "low tax Adsense city", I suspect its popularity or lack thereof would slowly but surely drive prices and taxes up.

I'm staying where I'm at where 1USD = 1USD.

Brother

You should not be so harsh on our deprived fellow citizens. Let them be happy and worship their false idols, yea so it says in the Book of Chips, "Compute and let Compute".

Just take no false golden idols of Bill Gates unto thy heart, truly he wears the number and is the Antichrist.

All praize the holy Apple, and save us from Microsoft, Amen!

(see what happens when you let a couple of Mac guys in here)

This could be an idea for a tourist destination; a special place for webmasters in general. The entire city/ town could be wi-fi enabled with coffee shops etc. Living in such a place isn't a very tempting thought.

Further to my previous questions (to which I am still awaiting an answer) ... I'd also like to know about plans for a datacenter. And what kinds of sites will we allow, and which will be disbarred in order to preserve our good neighbourhood?

Regarding the links-for-pints proposal I'm afraid that 10 links is a lot of work for one pint, unless sitewide links can be used to clear bar tabs on mass from MFAs...

At the advice of their stockholders, Yahoo would build a housing development in the suburbs, where the residents would be bombarded with endless junk mail and slow-loading Flash billboards for crap nobody cares about.

To the dismay of Yahoo's decision-makers, the subdivision would ultimately fail, not because the only places to eat there would be low-end fast food chains, or the fact that everyone only did things with money as the motive and all of them had their price, or even because of way every time you closed a door you got hit in the face with an ad for an amazing spy camera, but because of the bizarre phone service that would never target the right number, so when you tried to call a plumber, you got connected to eBay.

...but then it would only take one black hat to come in and we would all get banned because of related accounts! No thanks!

How come ideas such as Sylicon Valley works, Holiwood for movie industry works and Adsense city for webmasters will not work?
