Someone emailed me yesterday and asked me about “Adsense Ready” websites. Apparently it’s a program where people pay $100 or so for access to a database full of pre-written articles.
All they do is choose the ones they want to their site, upload the articles and Voila! their site is complete and ready for Adsense profits. I did a Google search and a there appears to be several sites out there like this.
In other words, these programs are for lazy people who don’t want to take the time to develop their own unique content.
People are always looking for shortcuts to success online. What many of them don’t realize is that the major search engines (Google, MSN and Yahoo) all penalize sites for duplicate content. So over time, as more and more people join Adsense Ready and start to use the same articles, the search engines will begin ignoring these pages.
After all, the key to success with Adsense is drawing in enough traffic to make a profit. That’s pretty hard to do if the search engines are ignoring your entire site because of all the duplicate content.
There are no shortcuts to success on the Internet. If you want to make money with a website, you have to work at it and build your own, unique content.
It really angers me when I see companies like this taking advantage of people’s ignorance. After finding out about “Adsense Ready” it inspired me to write an article on Internet money making scams.
