For those who are creating content rich web sites, how many words per day in average can you produce?
The international standard for translators, not writers, is 2000 words produced per day.
I bet there are those out there that write content for their websites in a much higher rate than that. Perhaps some may write 10,000 words per day in average for their sites.
How many words per day in average do you write for your AdSense supported web sites?

So in a nutshell, the online business is still largely a hobby outfit ...
Not really, but it's true that some topics and audiences lend themselves to "monetization" than others do. Still, that's always been true, offline as well as online. A computer or car magazine might pay its writers more than a dollar a word, while a respected literary quarterly might pay in copies. An editorial Web site devoted to travel planning might generate significant income from targeted advertising and affiliate commissions, while an editorial Web site devoted to travel narrative ("armchair travel") might be trying to subsist on low-paying run-of-network ads and Amazon.com links. A cooking magazine that caters to the upscale "lifestyle" crowd can earn a lot of money fom ads, while a cooking magazine that caters to people who live on homegrown vegetables and roadkill will be lucky to sell any ads at all.
I was simply trying to say, 100000 over 2 1/2 years divided through 2 people isn't successful, it's ok, but not great.
But the animation are what make visitors come back and recommend others.
In 20 month i went from 0 to " full income "
I can live from adsense, and i am not living a country where living is cheap.
So i think my strategy is pretty muck OK...
I always think that if one day, google is not interested in my text anymore, at least people will keep referring friends because of the flash stuff...
So i would say content goes first.
Sometimes 2 lines and a picture or a video can be better then 10000 words... Just imagine that every visitor referres a few friends...
AND THIS WILL ALSO LEAD TO MORE LINK.POPULARIT.
Because those people will also link you from their personal website or from different forums.
