AdSense sites, also called niche websites are a great way to produce passive income.  Basically, the way they work, is to build a small WordPress website based on a specific niche.  The niche topic is selected by doing keyword research to determine what people are searching for on the internet.  What you are looking for is a very focused subject that has high search engine traffic but low competition from other websites.  After you find a niche that satisfies the all the requirements and is a good candidate for building a site, you can then build a small targeted website that contains a minimum of 5 articles including photos.

Another type of website that can be monetized with Adsense is a discussion forum.  You would pick a niche subject in much the same way as you would with a wordpress niche website but you build a forum using software such as vbulletin or free software such as phpBB.

There is a ton of information available to help guide you through the process of picking a niche topic as well as how to build an AdSense supported website.


Welcome to Jay James.com  Thanks for stoping by my little part of the “inter web”.  This site is mostly dedicated to Early Retirement. I retired at age 51 when the company I had worked for 30 years, eliminated my position.  I had a choice, apply for the new position created by my company, leave the company and search for a new gig with another corporation or retire.  I opted for the 3rd choice.

I’ve been retired for about 2 years now and would like to share some of my experiences both good and not so good.  I hope I can convince more people to leave the stressful, crappy corporate culture and live a simpler healthier life style.  Its been a tough transition for me at times but I think its worth it.

Even though I am “Retired”, I still need to find ways to generate income and reduce spending.  I have sold items on Amazon and eBay,  I build wicked-cool little guitar amps, I build small passive income producing websites and am always investigating new ways to produce income.  I may not make as much money as I dis as a corporate stooge but I am so much happier now.  I hope to share with you what I learn and experience on my journey.
