There has been a lot of talk over the years about people making massive amount of money off Google Adsense. Just from searching online, you will come across various sites featuring pictures of ShoeMoney’s six figure adsense check and a few stories on PlentyofFish.com’s owner making high six figures a month. I’ve always found the PlentyofFish.com story very interesting, but haven’t seen as much information on it as it deserves. This month Inc. Magazine did a cover story of Markus Frind’s PlentyofFish.com site, and how he is raking in over $10 million a year and working less than an hour per day.
A Google Adsense Check to PlentyofFish.com, back in Feb of 2006.
– According to Markus Frind, he operates his business out of his apartment in Vancouver, British Columbia, and he says he has net profits of about $10 million a year.
– PlentyofFish.com is serving up 1.6 billion webpages each month.
– Find’s blueprint for success: Pick a market in which the competition charges money, build a “dead simple” free website and pay for it using Google Adsense.
– PlentyofFish.com is quickly moving into first place among all dating sites in the U.S. and U.K.
A look Mr. Frind’s Cash Cow Web Site, PlentyofFish.com
One might ask, if life is so wonderful and easy for Markus Frind… why bring so much attention to yourself all of a sudden, and not just sit back and keep collecting checks. While reading through the article, you will find a certain type of arrogence from Markus, as if he is untouchable… scoffing at the idea of starting a new web site or company. There may be plenty of fish in the sea… but no one stays on top forever.
