Got another 2 adsense snipers done today and also found 2 new keywords and bought up the domains..
In other news, My #1 adsense sniper has returned to page 1 along with the other top level domain I registered to further capitalize on the keyword. Something really interesting has happened here though…
My #1 earning adsense sniper earned close to what it earns at the #1 spot and had close to the same # of impressions despite only being at the #7 spot(93% of traffic is for the main kw BTW). My other TLD for the same keyword was ranked #10 and earned 1/2 what my #1 adsense sniper earned…This isn’t the first time I’ve seen one of my sites earn just as much at a #4-7 slot as it did in a #1-3 slot, which leads me to believe the following:
As long as you have a keyword targeted domain you can be ranking in position #2-7(and lower) and still manage to pull a significant amount of the search engine traffic for that keyword, simply because your domain name matches the Internet user’s query exactly. Of course if there are other snipers you’re competing with, that will affect how many you pull(I’ve seen this happen big time with my CB snipers receiving new competition).
All that talk about #1 receiving 42%, #2 – 12%, #3 – 8%, #4 – 5%, #5 – 4%, #6 – 3% etc… is just B.S. theory which doesn’t factor in enough variables… In reality things don’t always work out that way.
Earnings For Today:
CB = $0
Hops = 204
Adsense = $54.82 (up since the return of my #1 sniper)
Just got 1 adsense sniper done today and changed the nameservers of all but 4 of my domains over to the new nameserver for my new HostGator account so that I can start putting sites on there.
Other than that, not much to report…my CB income seems to be doing better now, although it still has a ways to go before it gets back to $400-450/week from $250/week. Due to the poor performance of CB, I think I’m going to wind up around 2k total income for the month again which is annoying..CB income thus far is only around $850, normally it’s twice that.
Today I got another 2 sniper sites done….also, seeing as how it was Black Friday apparently Hostgator had a sale going on for 75% off their hosting plans…the coupon for it was “75off” but I don’t think it will still work by the time you read this..but you can give it a shot..
I decided to take FULL advantage of that…basically, I was able to cut down a $300/year reseller fee down to $78/year! I decided that since my main reseller account has a bit over 200 accounts this would be a good time to get an additional hosting account.
I actually canceled my other shared hosting account I had registered with Just Host for WPMage, I had heard bad things about them suspending you for going over 10% CPU usage(something that happens when you’re posting 1000’s of posts in a day with WPMage…so what I’ve done now is I’ve registered an additional *2* reseller hosting accounts for 1 year..total : $156, a fraction of the $300 for 1 account at 1 year!
I’m going to use my 2nd reseller to continue to develop my adsense snipers on and use the 3rd reseller to develop my WPMage sites on…
I feel I got lucky here getting these accounts so cheap…It was quite a mental barrier to go and do this…but after I went and registered a new account I realized that I was kind of at a barrier, I felt like I didn’t want to develop too many domains on 1 hosting account, but now that I’ve got 2 completely new and separate ones, I feel a lot FREER about going and filling them up with more domains.
I fully intend to fill up this 2nd Reseller account with adsense snipers…definitely 100 sites..I find building sites is just the easiest way to boost income fast, it’s the only thing you can be 100% sure of yielding results….With backlinking you have to just plug away and hope that Google rewards you for it instead of penalizing you or doing nothing..with building additional SEO targeted sites though, it’s much more of an exact science (provided you’ve got the keyword research aspect down, which isn’t a big deal, comes with practice)..
I’ve got to go over all my domains now and change the nameservers..
But having these 2 accounts definitely is good, it’s given me the task to fill them up by the end of next year with a ton of domains so that when it comes time to pay $24×3/month 1 year from now, I’ll be making more than enough to pay for that.
Well, I’m back to creating adsense snipers and I’ve got 34 more keywords in the queue which means I’ll be at 108 adsense snipers when I’m done…if I keep pumping these out 2 a day, that should be around the middle of December.
Unless some of my sniper sites suddenly become big earners or more of my sites stabilize on page 1, I estimate I’ll need to have 150 or so snipers before I reach $100/day.
Earnings For Today:
Today was a HUGE CB day…it seems like the holidays must have triggered a lot of sales…but strangely the holidays brought on less clicks for Adsense..
HAHA! Kenny vs Spenny : Who Makes The More Convincing Woman?
Today I was out most of the day so didn’t get too much done…
one thing though, without specifying the specific #’s, I noticed that one of my sites had clicks in the double digits and a near 100% CTR, which was just ridiculous..someone trying to cause trouble?
I looked on page 1 but couldn’t see any sniper sites though, just other large online stores. Not sure what the deal was, but it prompted me to buy adsense click lock to protect my webpages…I’m going to try installing it on that domain.
In addition to that, I went and did a bit more research and registered 6 more domains! I figure this is a good opportunity to go over one of my other tips which is:
Don’t Count Out 2 Word Keywords!
I have several 2 word keyword domains that earn me money..there are 2 for instance that I recently developed that both have a nice CTR and are earning me a nice amount of $$(middle ground earners that earn $1-2 every other day).
These 6 new keywords I found are ALL 2 word keywords:
Legend (exact searches / competition / CPC (minimum CPC in Spyfu) / Strength of Competition)
As you can see, these are all keywords in the yellow/red for SOC as well…with everyone targeting the green SOC’s, this is what you’ve got to start resorting to in order to find yourself some keywords.
I analyzed the page 1 competition for all of these and found it to be relatively weak…based on my past performance 1/2 of these will be successful out the gate, possibly even 3/4 now that I know what I’m doing a bit better.
I’m really looking forward to developing all these and seeing where I wind up..I’m going to get to building my websites again starting tomorrow.
Thanks Tim for that suggestion to try out HideMyIP….I got the free version and used that today and never encountered any issues with using Micro Niche Finder getting the Google ban… so it seems like it did it’s job!
In fact, I was able to go all out researching today and registered a whopping 28 domains! This excites me as every time I buy up a lot of domains that I have a good feeling about, I KNOW FOR A FACT that my income will go up once I’m done developing them. I had this same feeling before when I registered some 30 odd domains and built sniper sites #40-70..
So now that I’ve uncovered all these great niches and am feeling good about them and I have all my previous domains building backlinks on autopilot with UAW, I’m going to get back to developing these Adsense snipers, which will take me up to 100 Adsense Snipers!
When I can I’ll do some work on WPMage, still got to get my first site going there…
I figured since I’m fresh from a round of successful keyword research that I’d share a few tips with you to help you out as well:
A Few Generic Tips:
1. Research And Buy Up The Domains You’re Going To Develop In Bulk
Once you get to the point where you have a fairly good grasp on keyword research(enough to know when you have a winner or potential winner on your hands), start buying up your domains in bulk. When you try to go at this by only researching a little here and a little there and registering 1, 2 or 3 domains at a time your progress will be severely hampered.
By doing your research thoroughly and buying up a lot of domains you feel really good about (10+), you will feel a lot more optimistic in developing the properties. The reason being that you will know that out of the 10+ sites you’re building that at least SOME of them are going to rank on page 1 and be successful, consistent earners.
By purchasing the domains in bulk, it also forces you to commit to the development of these blogs. By having invested in these domains you will be more likely to go through with your initial plan and develop them all so as not to waste your investment. Now not all 10 of those blogs are likely to turn out as expected, however that’s not the point, the more blogs you pump out, the greater the chance you stumble across the winners.
Personally, having registered these 28 sites has renewed my enthusiasm as I’ve found some great domains in this lot and I know that some are going to stick.
2. Don’t Get Stuck In The “Re-coop Investment” Mentality
This one is SUCH a killer for so many people…they are always looking to regain their investment, every penny they put into their business, all that is focused on is how to get that penny back.
Having the right mindset is critical to being successful in this business, you need to focus on what you want.
So the big question is, “will focusing on re-cooping all your investments help you to a full-time income?”
The answer is clearly not…The right mindset you need to bring to the table is to invest WHATEVER IT TAKES into your business to attain the passive income level you’re seeking.
If you have to invest $10,000 in domain name registrations, hosting, and Internet Marketing courses in order to generate a $100/day income, so be it!
When I make domain purchases for instance, my focus is nowhere near looking at the cost of the domains and how much out of pocket I am…I’m focusing on how these new domains are going to be adding to my bottom line…even if the majority of these fail to earn anything substantial, I’ll at least have a few winners that will yield me some passive income which will bring me closer to my goal. And if I were new to registering and developing these domains with the Adsense Sniper system, at the least this would be a great learning lesson.
So rather than having the Re-coop investment mentality, instead adopt the “Do whatever it takes to achieve my passive income goal” mentality. I know I for sure wouldn’t be where I am had I not adopted this way of thinking.
Tips On Adsense Sniping:
1. Drilling Down
When you’re doing your keyword research, always make sure you “drill down” as much as you can in any given niche. What do I mean by that? Well, say you do a search on “Gas Grills”. You will get results tailered to that query, but at the top of the list will be a few keywords with a relatively high search count that you can do seperate queries on.
For instance in this example, once you’ve looked through all the results for “Gas Grills” you can then do a search on “Weber Grill” which has 135,000 exact search results and is likely to bring up some additional keywords you would not have seen otherwise.. You can also drill down with “barbeques” at 110,000 exact searches or “charcoal grills” at 40,500 exact searches.
Sometimes you can even do this a 3rd or 4th time if there are enough keywords with a high amount of searches.. Doing this, has been one of the KEYS to me finding as many keywords as I have. Had I not done this, I’d have left a lot of money on the table with many of my niches.
2. Don’t Discount Yellow/Red SOC
Especially since keywords are being snatched up left and right that perfectly meet the XFactor guidelines, you need to broaden your net a bit when looking for your keywords.
In Micro Niche Finder, if everything else checks out but the SOC is yellow or red, I often times see that as opportunity..I ENJOY seeing that because I know most people aren’t targeting that and there is a good chance that I can find myself a keyword there.
I’ve seen sniper sites rank for yellow SOC all the time and even red SOC that is under 1,000. Actually, there are some situations where a sniper site will rank on page 1 even with an SOC over 1,000.
But generally, if you like the CPC, competition and # of searches but the SOC is around 500 or less, this can STILL be a good sign.
The first thing you need to do is to find sniper sites that rank when the SOC is yellow or red and analyze the first page for that keyword. Take note of the page rank of the other sites it’s competing against, the backlinks they have…take note of how many PR N/A’s, 0’s, 1’s etc.. there are and what kind of domains are ranking(Yahoo answers/Amazon/Yelp/Ezines etc) . Pay attention to where the sniper site is ranking and what page rank it has and how many backlinks it has.
After you analyze enough front pages where a fellow sniper site has ranked despite the SOC being in the yellow or in the red, you will begin to get a feel for what you can rank for with yellow and red SOC’s. Eventually it will get to the point where even if you don’t see a sniper ranking for a yellow or red SOC keyword, you can still figure out if YOU can rank there if you were to try…
Until you get to that level though, if you see another sniper on page 1 for a yellow or red SOC kw less than around 500, that has a PR0 and less than 30-50 or so backlinks, it’s usually a good sign that you too can rank on page 1 along with them or overtake them with a run of UAW.
3. Don’t Be Too Mechanical In Your Keyword Research
Now I’ve been throwing out a few numbers here, and things to look for, but I STRONGLY advise you to use your intuition as your main guiding compass. Don’t EVER get caught up in these formulas that you need to see X PR 0’s and X backlinks before you can consider the keyword…nothing is so black and white when it comes to keyword research and if you take this mechanical approach you are limiting how good you can get at this whole keyword research game…you’re also going to wind up frustrated and confused when things you see don’t align with the formula.
People who develop these formulas do so only after having developed their intuition first through massive amounts of keyword research….Your goal should be the same, develop your intuition through massive amounts of hands on experience, then you can come up with your own set of guidelines that make sense to you.
Well, I’ll stop there as this is getting pretty long, I’ll make more posts like this though if I find myself with a bit of extra time and if you guys are finding value in it..
One of the most intense scenes from Fresh Prince of Bel Air..
I finally got my UAW submissions done…pretty much all of my adsense snipers now have backlinking going for them on autopilot and will wind up with at bare minimum 30 or so backlinks…got this all done quickly thanks to outsourcing UAW articles to Human Rewriter..
Once I finished that I decided to do a little bit of kw research…man has it gotten hard to find good keywords…I only found 3 in the hour or 2 I was searching…2 of them were in the yellow as far as SOC is concerned, however my experience tells me I can definitely rank for them..The final one was green, however the minimum $ value in Spyfu(not CPC) was only $0.40 (I’ve never gone below around $0.44 before). All of these were above 2.9k exact searches/month by the way. It seems these days you’ve got to be a bit more accommodating to find keywords, unless you happen across an untapped niche. I stopped searching for keywords due to an annoying Google ban..
So after that ban I decided to get started with WordPress Mage. I went and installed CPMage on my main domain which I finally got set up right on my hosting account and then went to go fill in my default settings (filling in my CB aff ID, CJ ID, Amazon ID etc…)…didn’t get that all filled out though as I still haven’t been accepted by Overstock, I might have to call them.
Tomorrow I’ll be spending a bit more time figuring out WP Mage and possibly do a bit more keyword research..I’m kind of playing it by ear regarding what to do at this point.
I’ve just about submitted UAW articles for all of my adsense snipers, at least for the main domains..I just need to do 6 more submissions tomorrow and that will be wrapped up.
In other news, that little test I did to see if I can submit an Ezine article with an off topic resource box worked, it was accepted, as have all my 200+ articles I submitted in the last 2 or so months…so it doesn’t look like Ezine has changed at all.
If you’re having problems getting Ezine to accept your article’s due to your resource boxes, it’s probably because you’re not at the Platinum level. They are more stringent on you if you are at Basic or lower.
I finally got my shared hosting account setup right with an aged domain to create the add-on domains from so I can start up on making my WordPress Mage sites also…there will be a bit of a learning curve before I can start pumping these out, but also, I don’t want to be building these fast anyways.
WordPress Mage BTW is out at 8pm EST today, the 23rd, until the 26th for anyone who is interested in it.
Earnings For Today:
CB = Wow…4 days in a row of nothing? I’m used to seeing $400-450/week, then it dropped to $250 now its dropped even lower.
So today I spent some more time with UAW…I submitted 3 more UAW articles that will build backlinks to 6 of my site’s main domains at a rate of 15 submissions/day. I also went ahead and outsourced 7 articles to each be re-written 3x for 7 more UAW submissions.
At this point, I just have 13 other sites that I’ll need to outsource UAW for and then 66 of my 72 sites will have backlinks building to their main domain(which will likely wind up being 30 backlinks at the end of the runs for each site).
Aside from that, I have also been wanting to start up WordPress Mage, although I had a little issue with my new hosting company to take care of. I had wanted to have a pre-owned, aged domain as my main domain to build add-on domains ontop of as this gives all WordPress Mage sites a bit of an extra boost..thing was I signed up with a new domain so I needed to get tech support to switch it over.
Once that’s done though, I’ll be able to get started with the building of my sites…I’ve got some 20 odd domains that I bought with GoDaddy to work on, but I’m going to build them nice and slow. By the way, the WordPress Mage system is launching on Monday November 23rd…they’re planning on keeping it open for 4 days or until they sell out. They’re only going to be releasing some 450 copies of it. Other than George, looks like Holly Mann is also promoting it.
I’m hoping with my CB income drop and loss of my top adsense site, this can help me pick up some of the slack. There are a bunch of people on the forums making money with this and due to the way in which this is setup, it doesn’t require much work…the only thing to be cautious of is building up your income too fast and getting auto flagged by the Ebay bot that looks for suspicious accounts, although you can also make money with Adsense, Amazon, CJ or CB.
