I am currently keeping an eye on a few Adsense websites with a view to buy and am wondering if there is anyway to actually verify that the adsense revenue that someone claims they are earning is legit ?
At the moment at most i can go on is there word and a screenshot (Which is too easily faked).
I have seen some mention of getting a site owner to put up your adsense ID for a day or two so you can see the stats but i would be worried about my adsense account then coming under scrutiny from google.
Is there some way to do an estimation based on traffic , an average CTR and the average CPC of keywords in the niche of the website ?
At the moment im thinking it might just be about doing other due diligence the website and if everything adds up then you might be able to "trust" them.
But of course i would be far happier if there was a way to know for sure
Thanks in advance !
