What most of new people do wrong when creating content for their adsense sites
YOUR CONTENT SHOULD NOT GIVE AN ANSWER TO THE VISITOR!
You are not creating a content locker site, your are not earning trough your content, your are earning trough your ads, which means that your content should not offer an answer to the query which it ranks for - your ads should do that! If you are targeting the keyword "lawyer services in New York", then don't write about lawyers and give out contact numbers - let your ads do that, not you! A visitor will not click on an add if he does not have a good reason for it. Write about something connected to that niche which is enough interesting to keep the visitor for the next 40 sec there, so he can see the add and click on it.
FIND PROPER KEYWORDS WHICH GIVE RESULTS
If you target the keyword "Solar Cars" and write general information about that car, mostly fans of that car will Google that keyword and come to your site, out of 200 visitors only 3 guys will click on some connected ads (just an example)
But, if you target the keyword "Solar Cars for sale" and write general information about that car and your experience selling it, buyers will come to your site, read the content, see that it's not what they are looking for, they will note the first add on their left which says "buy a used Solar Cars now" and click on it!
In my experience a "for sale" keyword generates more clicks then a regular keyword, which again connects to the above part which I mentioned - target a keyword which targets people who look for a solution, then give them ads which solve their problem! Try to twist this.
AN ARTICLE NEEDS TO BE SEO OPTIMIZED PROPERLY!
If you want to earn trough adsense, you have to optimize your site, and especially your content. Without that you can forget about the #1 position. This is the most important step, You´ll some of your keywords without ANY backlinking, just with good SEO optimized content!
This means that you need content which has this requirements:

- at least one video on the site (youtube, vimeo, etc)
- at least one image with your keywords at the alternate text
- Heading 1, heading 2 and heading 3 with your keyword
