Some prefer, their creation must be monetized right from the start, to churn out as much money as they can. While some believe to wait for traffic to come and then monetize after they have reached a decent traffic of nearly 1000 visitors per day, however since a 1000 may take a while longer than you think, some even start from a menial 100.
