The author that made the Death of Adsense book must be one of those scam gurus. He claims that he made alot of money; however, he never claimed that his site was a top notch site. He never claimed that they were high in quality or original.
In order to spread the word he offered his affiliates $0.50 for each person that downloads his eBook.
I beleive that he made this entire thing up just becase he made garbage sites and he wasnâ€™t getting enough money and he needed some attention.
Google.com only wants high quality, original sites so, donâ€™t beleive in his words.
Webmasters that make quality sites know that AdSense is pouring in cash.
