Paper routes out, Google AdSense in
Chloe Spencer stopped by the BlogHer Conference to talk a little about her venture into the world of SEO, Blogs, and Google AdSense. Chloe started a website called the "Ultimate Neopets Cheats Site". Early last year when she was 15 she started the site and actually researched keywords through WordTracker and Google Suggest to find out the popular search terms for the Neopet category so she knew what exactly to write on. Since then she pulls in about $20 - $30 per day through AdSense, working far less hours than she would babysitting to make the same amount.
Chloe's little part time venture shows us that as long as we are passionate about a topic, do our research, and stick to developing it, rewards are right around the corner. There might be a little shortage in the paper route sector but hey, they too should keep up with the times.
