i am hoping to make at least $3k from adsense every month.
Is SEO + adsense a viable business model
Also I have discovered several untapped niches where the serp quality is weak and there are plenty of advertisers.

By itself? No.
I do very very well. But I haven't quit my day job. It's NEVER wise to build your business on something over which you have so little control.
However, you can certainly use it to fund a more stable business that doesn't rely on Google, if you can make it work.
i always think that is a strange argument to make (even if it is wise), because returning to full-time employment is not much different.
To be succinct, the OPs business model won't work, cloud cuckoo land.

Last year i made a site in the same niche and got it to 300 visits a day inside 4 months from launch. I invested about $1500 on it and had made $800 back. However, i got greedy and began adding keyword based content with little value. Eventually the site was hit by panda. It now gets zero traffic from google. I have now revamped it completely so hopefully it will recover soon.
These are not mfa websites but information resources loaded with answers/solutions about a certain topic/problem/subject.
I'd say give it a go if you do it as a sideline, don't give up the day job. Use social networks to build a loyal userbase - if you are not in an area that people care about then forget it.
building content rich websites in various niches, ranking them high in search engines and monetizing the resulting traffic mainly with adsense. These are not mfa websites but information resources loaded with answers/solutions about a certain topic/problem/subject.so, how is this not an MFA site? You already said it's basically made for adwords monetization. Sounds like more thin eHow style trash to me. That's all we need.
