Why you will never make much Adsense money with blogs

I have been down on the blog type structure for years. Its an inherently inefficient way of producing content for your website, and creates what I call the "Hamster Effect", where you run on the spot continually creating content without seeing old content being utilized.

Now someone else has had an epiphany on the topic and notes how impractical the format is with real world examples.

However to be fair, he doesn't seem to realize that spikes in traffic are not reflected in spikes in income, Google deliberately drops the price per click, to smooth out the spikes, creating the situation described below.
... Quote:
Fake Steve Jobsí best month came with a traffic spike. His actual identity was revealed in the New York Times, sending more than a half-million people to his site in a single day.

His payout? For that half-million-visitor day, about a hundred dollars in AdSense earnings. For the entire month, he made $1,039.81.

Not quite what he was hoping for when he became a celebrity blogger and earned an impressive amount of attention and notoriety.

So if Fake Steve Jobs canít monetize a blog, the rest of us are doomed, right? He worked hard, he created quality content, he had a terrific angle that went nicely viral. He was at the pinnacle, and heís broke. So we will be too.

There are zillions of people hard at work making blog entries in the hope they will make money. Its like a giant hoax. The amount of income from a blog for many people is very small, and thats a fault of the structure and the style of blogs. Its sad, if the made real websites, they would see more income.

It boils down to the old maxims of "If it looks to good to be true, it probably is", and "Nothing succeeds like hard work"

If you look on the adsense forum many of the people with blogs are anguishing over mere cents of income.
