Day 118 – SENuke Day 6

August 31st, 2009


Check this guy out…

Well I was out most of the day..saw Inglorious Bastards (the Nazi movie with Brad Pitt/Directed by Quentin Tarantino)…another GREAT movie.  It’s rated 8.7 on IMDB via 37k votes and is rated #35 out of the top #250 movies of all time.  Definately one of the best WWII movies out there and another must see movie.

As far as work goes, I was able to get 1 more run of SENuke in for one of my websites, and I believe I have also found the reason for my string of $0 CB days…

It seems like for whatever reason, the affiliate banners are not displaying on any of my sites for 2 of my products.  This has resulted in my sites looking more bland and without those aff banners it seems to have seriously affected conversions.

Let this be a lesson to you not to link out to gif/jpg banners externally but rather to host them on your own site so that the images don’t dissapear on you.  I’ve now got to spend a ton of time fixing all of this and its cost me quite a bit of money as today has been another $0 day! (3 $0 days in the last 4 days)

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops = 345(new) / 575(old) – my hops have gone UP but due to this issue I’ve seen no sales, what a shame..
  • Adsense = $10.06 (Hubs = $3.27, Infobarrel = $0.11) + some $$ from an adsense sniper

Day 117 – SENuke Day 5

August 30th, 2009


This guy is so awkward he’s hilarious!

OK, despite today being my B-Day I still managed to write 1 article in spin syntax(40-50% unique) that I should be able to shoot out 3-4 times for 3-4 of my sites which I’ll start doing tomorrow…

I noticed that although one of my sites overtook my competition the other day, it seems like it was short lived as my site went back down in rankings (Google dance perhaps).

Regardless, I’m going to continue running SENuke, through all of these niches that have been attacked by competitors before I start looking at other ways to use this product.  I know there are MUCH better keywords I could be using this on.

So again, a short update, I should have more done tomorrow though..

Earnings For Today:

  • $0 CB day again…hmmmm…
  • 250 hops(new) / 461(old)
  • Adsense = $3.10 (hubs = $0.33, infobarrel = $0.28) + some $$ from an adsense sniper

Day 116 – SENuke Day 4

August 29th, 2009

Didn’t do too much today…I did 1 more SENuke submission for one of my main sniper site niche keywords and did some additional bookmarking and rss submitting for some of the previous submissions I’ve done.

I didn’t exactly log where I was before and after the submissions, but I do know that for 1 of the keywords I have overtaken one of the guys who went for my keyword and am ranking #6, right above him.

Earnings For Today:

  • $108.48 – 4 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 238(new) / 420(old)
  • Adsense = $2.61

Day 115 – 3 SENuke Runs

August 28th, 2009

So today I ran SENuke 3 times on 3 of my niche websites.  Each time I built between 15-18 Web 2.0 sites linking to each other and linking to the main site using 3 variations of anchor text…that’s around 45-50 Web 2.0 properties in 1 day, crazy!

I also submitted 5 bookmarks of the 15-18 properties for each of those 3 SENuke runs, then submitted 1/2 of the RSS feeds for each.

As I mentioned before, at this time I’m only going to be doing 1 run on each of my sites, so there will only be 1 link wheel, no sub-linkwheels just yet.

One of the things I’ve noticed is out of all the Web 2.0 properties, not all of them are do-follow…additionally, not all of them tend to keep the spun content you put on them.

I’ve found that for the purposes of linkwheeling, the do-follow Web 2.0 properties to be used include: quizilla, msn spaces, tripod, webs, friendster, ning, blog.com, vox, blogspot and livejournal.

Then there is another group that is no-follow: Wetpaint, Google Sites, Zimbio, Xanga, Wikispaces, Hubpages (until you reach 75% author score)..

Then…there’s a 3rd group which are sites that may possibly delete the submissions you made: WordPress, Blogger, Wikispaces, Google Knol, Hubpages, Google Sites

Considering this, I do 2 seperate submissions to the Web 2.0 sites, the first one goes out to the do-follow blogs so those end up in a nice linkwheel, then the 2nd to the rest of the sites that are no-follow… I leave these to be link wheel’d too.

The thing about the keywords I’m running SENuke on is they’re probably too high competition for all these Web 2.0 properties to show up on page 1, 2 and 3 of Google and dominate the SERPS….This is why to really see the benefits of this, I’ll probably have to go after some lower competition buying keywords.

In other news, my birthday is tomorrow (the 29th), I’ll be turning 30!..anyone see that Friends episode about Joey making the deal with God to stay 28 forever?

Hah…well,  I did something messed up to prepare for the mental shift which was to go through my 29’s thinking I”m already 30…it didn’t exactly work but at least I still have my good looks!  Strangely, I don’t have plans for my B-day but I have plans to go out on both Friday and Sunday..

Earnings For Today:

  • $0 CB Sales..sales are down lately
  • 256 hops(new) / 468(old)
  • Adsense = $7.29 (Hubs = $3.35, Infobarrel = $0.48)

Day 114 – SENuke Day 3

August 27th, 2009

Today what I did was I bookmarked 5 more properties for my first SENuke submission and submitted the rest of the RSS feeds for the 1st submission…I also submitted the spun article via Article Drip Robot to about 12 other article directories(there are more directories in there to submit to than in SENuke).

I then did another submission for an adsense sniper site, creating about 15 web 2.0 sites for it all interlinked, bookmarking about 5 pages and submitting 1/2 the RSS feeds for that as well…

Following this I also wrote up a new article in spin syntax to be used for a submission for one of the sites in my main sniper niche that has been booted off of page 1 for it’s keyword.

Thus far I haven’t been doing any sub-wheels, I’m just going to do 1 submission at a time for now…if I find that the 1 submission is helping, a particular keyword in any noticeable way, then I’ll go back and add a sub-linkwheel or 2 to strengthen the network.

I’ve also been thinking that I should start running SENuke for some product keywords as when browsing the success stories forum, I’ve found that’s what a lot of people have been doign to earn some nice sums of money…

Earnings For Today:

  • I’ve noticed that I’ve had quite a few EBay sales…I never check this as sales don’t come in frequently here, but I’ve had sales for 1 of my sniper sites that I stuck ebay in for: 18th = $0.41, 20th = $18.82, 22nd = $5.67, 24th = $1.06, 25th = $4.04 …I have a total of $32.92 in Ebay comissions for the month so far..
  • CB Sales = $26.38
  • Adsense = $17.91 , a new record high for me (hubs = $6.87, infobarrel = $2.99, + some additional money from one of my adsense snipers)

Day 113 – SENuke Day 2 + Tony Robbins Frank Kern John Reese

August 26th, 2009

For the video guys, check out this video of Tony Robbins interviewing Internet Marketers Frank Kern and John Reese on the traits and mindset needed to take massive action on a daily basis and develop an extremely profitable online business:

http://tonyrobbinstraining.com/320/interview-with-frank-kern-and-john-reese/

This is a MUST see guys, it will really help you out!  Seeing as how I’ve switched from my usual CB snipers to a new money making method I’m not as familiar with, it’s helped me, and I’ll be watching that more than once.

Now, the last time I used SENuke for building Web 2.0 properties was probably back in Feb-March, not quite sure, around there though….I knew that SENuke was good for boosting pages up in ranking but even then I don’t think I realized just how powerful tihs program can be.

Now that I have a bit more IM experience, and now that I’ve just run it for the first time in a while, I’m realizing how this is going to seriously increase my productivity.  Last night I created about 500 profiles in the “profile nuke” section…These are the profiles that you’ll find in say Angela’s backlinks where you can get yourself a bunch of easy high PR backlinks.  A lot of these sites have captchas, but SENuke has the ability to let you pay $7-8 for 1000 captchas at some captcha solving sites and have that hooked into the program so all you have to do is set it and forget it….with $8 spent, I woke up to almost all of those 500 accounts created…I then went and had all of the accounts automatically confirmed via SENuke.

I’ll need to wait a while for those profiles to age so that my username drops from the “recently added” listings before I add links to all those profiles though, but that feature alone seems pretty damn powerful.

In addition to that, today I did 1 submission.  Things went a bit slow the first time around as I was getting used to this new version and all the new web properties.  There’s now an option in SENuke to linkwheel all the properties together, so you can have each Web 2.0 property linking to the next one, over and over forming a loop spreading link juice, it’s all done automatically too.

When I tried it though I had a few problems and the linking didn’t work out as I anticipated…partly due to the fact that I cancelled a run then began it again.  Additionally I made the mistake of not linking to my main adsense sniper site at each Web 2.0 property.. I was so focused on getting the link wheel working I forgot to do it!  So..I had to go back and manually add that to about 18 different Web 2.0 sites..it took me 45 minutes to login to each one and put in the anchor text O_o

After having done that manual work though, you can really appreciate how much time this program saves you…I mean, today using an article with spin syntax, 30% unique, I was able to submit to 18 Web 2.0 sites and interlink them all as well.  I still haven’t finished submitting to all the article directories either(about 10 of them) which I’ll do another day.

After I did these submissions, I then went and bookmarked about 5 of the Web 2.0 pages to the available bookmarking sites…Over the next day or 2 I’ll bookmark the rest in batches of 5, I just don’t want to raise any flags by bookmarking too much.

Additionally, I submitted only 1/2 of my RSS feeds, I’ll do the other half tomorrow.

BTW, that paid captcha solving is only for the profile nuke, when you’re creating Web 2.0 sites you get free captcha solving from the SENuke team itself…they have people who fill out the captcha’s for you within 15 seconds which is pretty cool…

Well, now that I have a bit more experience with IM and more motivation and drive, I feel I may be able to make better use of this program than I did before…Now when I first used this program, I used it mainly on one of my authority sites to boost pages from page #3-2 of Google up to page #1…this resulted in me getting an extra $300/month.  I ended up stopping using it because I didn’t know how else to use it, but now with a bit more experience, I know of many ways I can implement this.

I only hope that by implementing this extensively I see an increase in my income which justifies the high cost of the program…actually, I’m hoping for a lot more than just justifying the cost of the program..I’m hoping this will be the key to earning me thousands rather than hundreds like the last time I used it.

Anyways, in addition to running SENuke, I also wrote up a new article in spun syntax to be used as a submission for one of my other Adsense sniper sites…In a short while I should be comfortable enough with the system to do several runs a day.

By the way, this link wheeling doesn’t just stop with 1 wheel of Web 2.0 sites around your money site, there are many different techniques out there which show you how to boost the power of your network by adding additional “sub wheels”…like for example, if you have a Squidoo page as a part of your initial link wheel, you can then do another linkwheel which links to that Squidoo page mainly, then another sub wheel which links to just the WordPress site on your first linkwheel….

I’m still not sure which linkwheel strategy I’m going to go with..but I’ll be adding 1 ore more layers to the first link wheel, thats for sure, in addition to doing the article submissions too…My only concern is getting my main site sandboxed, that’s what I’m going to have to watch out for.

Earnings For Today:

My income seems to be going down as of late.. I’ve never had my income dip below $400-500 in a long while, and it’s now gone to $391 and now $288 for the week…I believe this is linked to me having my sites knocked out for 3 of my kw’s (2 sites for each kw knocked out…I’ll be revisiting these sites with SENuke though)

  • $49.22 – 1 Sale for Site#3 and 1 sniper site sale
  • Adsense = $13.43 (Hubs = $3.67, Infobarrel = $3.24) + 2 of my adsense snipers contributed to this as well
  • Hops = 290(new) / 563(old)

Day 112 – Picked Up SENuke

August 25th, 2009


LOL at the hand on shoulder guy

So I went and picked up SENuke…

I wasn’t used to the current version of it so I had to spend some time looking through the videos and learning about the new features and what-not.  There is a very powerful profile nuke feature in there now which is much like Angela’s Backlinks, it has 500 of those sites and it automatically creates accounts at all the sites as well as submits various links and RSS feeds to the accounts…you can even linkwheel all 500 accounts together, crazy!

In addition to that I had to get used to this version’s hang ups as there is usually a couple of issues with the automated software.  One of the issues I had was not being able to validate the confirmation emails in Yahoo Mail…apparently Yahoo had changed things up and are not allowing POP3 connections so you have to go in and go through your verification emails manually.  At least that’s what I had to do, next time I’ll make the accounts with G-Mail.

Another thing was that some of the bookmarking accounts were being created but showing as not being created and the username/password were not being loaded into memory…anyways, I’m going to have to look up more on that one tomorrow, but all these little things take time to get used to the first time around.

So I really spent most of my time getting accustomed to the new SENuke today and creating accounts for all the Social Bookmarking/Web 2.0 and Video Sites for my first run on one of my Adsense Snipers…It took quite a long while as for some reason my Internet connection gets really slow at some points in the day and things go by at a snails pace, hopefully tomorrow my Internet will be back to normal and I can start using SENuke at the usual speed.

I’m going to put this program to quite a lot of use this month on my existing sites as well as new sites and see what happens…

Earnings For Today:

  • $46.74 – 2 Sales for Site #1
  • Adsense = $5.22 (Hubs = $2.48, Infobarrel = $0.86)
  • Hops = 238(new) / 501(old)

Day 111 – Next Steps…

August 24th, 2009


Gordon Ramsey of Hells Kitchen as a kid…

OK, so I’m at the point where I’m considering if I should go and get SENuke…the thing is I’m already paying quite a lot of money for subscriptions..I’ve got Firepow, UAW, Aweber….plus there’s my reseller hosting at Host Gator..it all adds up to around $190/ month.  If I add SENuke on top with it being $127 now that puts me at $317/month, pretty crazy.

If I do end up getting it though, I’m going to ensure I use it and use it A LOT…

I was looking over my niche and noticed that there are 3 keywords I’ve been knocked out of now and 1 more keyword I’m sharing.  So I’m thinking if I get SENuke, I might as well go and run it on those sites, link wheel that up and see if that allows me to regain my rankings.

Now as far as what I did today, I decided to find out what hubs of mine are making the most revenue and take note of them.  I found out that I really only have about 30 odd hubs that have generated any income, so I wrote those down and paired them up in groups of 2.  What I’ve now got are 18 pairings of hubs which I can do UAW submissions for to boost their rankings further.

So far I have submitted 1 UAW article linking back to 2 of my hubs.

I hate not having a money making system in place that is working and working well, but hopefully I figure one out that works soon.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB Sales = $16.32
  • Adsense = $8.58 (Hubs = $1.75, Infobarrel = $1.14)
  • Hops = 271(new)/494(old)

Day 110 – Adsense Sniper #5

August 23rd, 2009

Things have been progressing a bit slower than usual for me this week, I haven’t been getting as much work as I’d like done… hence the short updates.

Today what I did was put up my 5th Adsense sniper site.

Thus far, they’re all ranking on page #2 and they’re definitely going to be needing more backlinking as they’re not generating any consistent revenue at this point.  I was planning on using SENuke, but I’m going to have to spend $127/month for this and I’m already getting killed with subscription costs so I’m still out to lunch on what exactly I’m going to do there.

Another option is for me to use Article Directories or submit manually to Web 2.0 sites to create the link wheels in the meantime…

Anyways, I don’t have much else to discuss right now, other than I’m still trying to find my footing here and build my momentum with this new method…

Earnings For Today:

  • $58.15 – 2 sniper site sales
  • 217 hops(new) / 420(old)
  • Adsense = $3.59 (Hubs = $0.39, Infobarrel = $0.97)

Day 109 – District 9

August 22nd, 2009

Just got back from seeing this movie, District 9…It’s currently rated 8.8 and ranked #31 out of the top 250 movies on IMDB..  It was a pretty sweet movie, definitely the best movie out at the moment..unique movie with some great CG effects.

Well, aside from the movie, I did some other stuff too and got back late so I didn’t get as much done as I’d have liked.  I did manage to get 5 articles written though to be used for my new adsense sniper site.

I’ll be putting that up tomorrow and also look into starting my backlinking with SENuke..

Earnings For Today:

  • $41.80 – 1 Site#1 sale & 1 Site#3 sale
  • Adsense = $7.72 (Hubpages = $2.27 / Infobarrel = $0.26)
  • Hops = 167(new)/357(old)
