Hello Everyone,

I am confused about something, and would really like to get your advice.
I'm torn apart here, and cannot seem to have my mind set on the right way to go.

I have many ideas to write about, and produce thereof some original high quality content, which I will write myself. Therefor, my guess is that such content will drive a lot of traffic, and make up a great improvement for any site.

Now trying to decide where to start posting that content, I've considered two options:

1- I have an old good ranking ezine - articles directory which generates some good Adsense earnings. This site contains some original content, but it also contains many articles which were previously posted by their authors on other sites. (prior to mine).
The advantage of this option is that I can easily advance this site by that original content, and thus quickly improve my Adsense revenue.

2- The second option is that I start a new site, where I will post all the new and original writings. I will never post in it any unoriginal or nonexclusive content.
All that in the hope it will get better rankings than the other site, and generate more money.
The advantage of this is that I'll start a new, clean and quality site which will have a good reputation from onset.
But the downside is that I do not know when will it start ranking high and drive decent traffic.

So my two questions are:

1- Which of the 2 options do you think is better? But please take into consideration that my main objective for the time being is to quickly generate as much money as I can from Adsense. For we are living now in very hard financial times.

2- If posted in this ezine (the old site), will that original and quality content make up for the old low quality content. Or will the old content keep affecting its ranking forever?!
Knowing that that ezine could still have some copied content from elsewhere, since - by its nature - it allows for members to publish their work.

Can anyone please help me out here?
Thanks in advance!
