Is AdSense a Real Business Model for Publishers?

The question of whether or not AdSense is a secure way to make a living comes up every now and then. A new WebmasterWorld thread named Is AdSense a valid business model for publishers? goes right into that, and its three pages long already.

I know of a few people who have decided that their blog was bringing in enough monthly income. So they decided to move to a low cost area and continue their blog. I do not know if AdSense alone sustains their livelihood, but I do know they also have normal banner ads on their site.

The forum folks tend to believe AdSense is a viable and even sustainable source of income. But like any business model, there is always some risk.

I would say that relying on any single income source is a bad idea.

I would say, Yes, that includes a job. How many people do you know who've managed to keep one job throughout a career? If you lost your job, wouldn't you be happy to know you had other sources of income?

We should not depend only on google adsense for income source, we should search for other resourses of income. here is my weblod:<a href="">Make money blogging online</a>
