No top-secret methods or techniques. All I do is install Automatic Website Builder, add new domains (powered by AWB) to backlinks building tools which I purchased from AdsenseBoy, and that's it. Of course, I try to follow most of guidelines from Webmaster Book, and sometimes I "adjust" those guidelines (when I think it's needed, or when I want to make some experiments).
Put it simply, if you want to make money, install Automatic Website Builder, get some backlinks using other tools, and you should be fine. Just make sure you don't put any fancy play game on the plan, just follow the basic rules and recommendations.
