Pay off 30 years mortgage in 11 months with Google Adsense revenue
March 29, 2016 7:23am CST
It seems like a Google Adsense success story with a twist. Not many Adsense publishers can pay off 30 years mortgage of nearly A$200,000 in 11 months. However, Ai Takagi and her husband, Yang Kaiheng, did that in 2014. They set up a website named The Real Singapore (TRS) and wrote many articles that spread lies and promoted ill will among Singaporeans. Both of them were not even in Singapore. They lived in Australia, but they saw a niche in promoting racism, and hatred. They made about A$473,595 in about two years when they had the website up and running. However, their articles were lies, and they were charged in Singapore court under Sedition Act. Takagi was sentenced to 10 weeks in jail. Her husband had pleaded not guilty. While I love to have this kind of income, I do not want to go into this niche. It causes social unrest and hatred among the different races and religious groups. I rather write something loving, and uplifting, not using lies to stir up ill-feelings and anger. Image credit to http://www.theaustralian.com.au

I think for the kind of money that they made, they got off very lightly. After all, they made nearly half a million dollars, and they had a fully paid off house now. They just had to go to jail for a few weeks, and then they are free to live a debt-free life again.

@gudheart Of course it is not worth. Now the current sentiment is against Muslims and refugees. Though you can spread lies and cause resentment against them, you will not be happy with the money earned this way. it is a bad thing to cause misery to others who are innocent and who are in a far worse situation than us.

Sometimes it is hard to verify. When a fight breaks out, you may not even know how it breaks out. You probably see someone hits someone else, but you do not know why or the reason for it. If you want to create trouble, you can write a blog post about it, and tell lies about the cause of it. Nobody will question you closely as you are writing as a witness.

It's sad to hear that. It'd be good if they write about the truth and really promote the country well, then they will be happier to earn the money, but perhaps they won't be able to earn so much in such a short period. I am not sure if they think it's still worth to do so.

Yes, they will not likely to earn much if they write the truth, and write good things. I think it is the same in every country. Bad news spread faster than good news, and many people just take the bad news as gospel truth even when these are lies.
