Ready Made Adsense Sites – Elf Knows It [ARCHIVED]
I just got a question in my inbox from Stephen, and he was asking about ready made Adsense sites you can download off the net.
Firstly for those who don’t know, these ready made Adsense sites are site templates you can download, and they are packed with articles and Adsense ad’s positioned and set up for you, all you have to do is insert your Google Adsense publisher ID, upload to your server and away you go. Sounds simple and rewarding right? I’m afraid not!
So to answer your question Stpehen these sites are a bad idea, I wouldn’t recommend anyone try and use these sites. Search engines are programmed to look for unique original content to deliver to the user, So if you imagine 2000 other people have the same template up as you, the search engines will just ignore it, because it’s not unique and would be of no value to the person searching. So that means virtually no traffic will make it to your site, which means no revenue!
But on the brighter side there is actually a pro to these templates. If you have an original website up, or are thinking of this. You can base your ad placement and design on these templates, but use your own original content.
Hope that answers your question Stephen.
