Day 240 – Adsense Sniper #111 + Backlink Solutions

December 31st, 2009

Just got another sniper done and also started using Backlink Solutions….

I did 5 submissions of 65-75 word, 30%+ spun snippets, each linking to 3 of my sites (15 sites total) and each queued to go out 60 times at 3 a day…that’s 1 link to each of the 3 sites per day for a total of 20 links per site in 20 days time.

I’ve got 11-12 more submissions until I get to the 1000 backlink limit apparently, so over the next 1 or 2 days I’ll finish that off and see what happens.

In other news I have 2 more outsourcers who are doing the trial articles for me, I’d like to get at least one, preferably both of them working on building up more pages for my adsense snipers soon…

One thing I forgot to mention yesterday is I started doing some extra keyword research to find inner pages to build for some of my older adsense snipers, yesterday I found 9 good ones for one of my sites, over the next few days I’ll be doing this for several more of my sites.

BTW, Happy New Year!

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $75.88 – 3 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 132
  • Adsense = $64.42
  • Total = $140.30

Day 239 – Adsense Sniper #110 + The Plan

December 30th, 2009


This is GREAT, a compilation of humiliations the loser of the competition had to do…from the TV show Kenny vs. Spenny!

Another adsense sniper done…

The New Plan:

You know one thing that I did pick up from the XFactor forum is that it looks like XFactor feels he needs to revise his 5 page suggestion…this is in light of all the people talking about 1 page adsense sites and getting banned from Google or De-Indexed.

Obviously 1 page is going to get you into some trouble, however John mentions that 5 pages should just be what you launch with and that you should expand further on your sites to really ensure you have a stable adsense empire.  He mentions that all of his sites have a minimum of 30 pages at this point.

Given this, and the fact that I got Backlink Solutions, I’m thinking of changing my approach a bit.  What I’m going to do is still keep putting out about 1 site a day, but I’m going to hire other outsourcers to develop content for all of my adsense snipers.. I’ll obviously focus on the ones that are doing better a bit more, but it will be interesting to see what effects adding all these pages will have.

I feel that adding pages alone though is not going to increase the income, I’m going to have to get enough backlinks to the main domain as well in order for those extra pages to really pull in extra traffic…so that’s where Backlink Solutions comes in.

Backlinking:

Now I did more research into this and apparently you only have a max of 1000 backlinks per month with this program.  Now for most ppl that is more than enough, but for me, with 100+ sites to backlink and me wanting to do it ASAP, it’s not quite that much.

So, I’m going to have to revise my backlinking strategy with Backlink Solutions.  I’ll have to pick out the sites I want to use it on the most, and then with each submission, have the links rotate between 3 sites a piece.  I’ll then submit that at 3/day so that I get 1 link built to each site per day…If I only build links to about 50 of my 100 odd sites, that means that each site will end up getting 20 links.  If that’s the case, the links are going to have to only go to the main domain and not any inner pages.

I also found out that the spin syntax is quite simple and you can’t do nested spinning…also apparently you can still submit 60 word blurbs, although 150 is mentioned on the site…So what I’m going to do is try this for 1 month and see what the end result is..hopefully these few links from this blog network are powerful enough to positively affect my income, if I don’t see results fast enough, I may resort to getting backlinks via other methods as well.

Outsourcing:

As far as outsourcing goes, I really only have 1 person, the other person that was not responsive I had to let go, and even in sending that message I have not heard back from her.  I’m finding that in hiring people you get a TON of excuses…so far I’ve gotten ” the holidays” (understandable but I believe some have abused it), “my partner is in the hospital” and “My full time employer has asked me to relocate to another country and I won’t have internet access for several months”…Just, no words.

So ya, it’s tough finding people, but I have 2-3 additional prospects right now.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $20.04
  • Hops = 145
  • Adsense = $71.42 (high today)
  • Total = $91.46

Day 238 – Adsense Sniper #109

December 29th, 2009

Got another adsense sniper up and also spent a bit of time playing with Backlink Solutions.  I didn’t complete a submission as I was unsure based on what I had done if nested spun syntax was allowed in the submissions, so I decided to open up a support ticket before making any submissions.

I noticed that there were some issues as well, like if you had a period or semi colon inbetween 2 braces, it would be omitted in the final output and result in a spelling error.. ex:

The dog went over the {roof|shed}.{However|But} he didn’t die.

In the above instance, I noticed the period was being omitted and the words before and after the period were being squished together…the only way around this was to put in a period as part of the spun content and insert spaces:

The dog went over the {roof.|shed.} { However| But} he didn’t die.

Anyway, once I figure all that out, I’m going to start using it.  I’m thinking of running it twice per site.  The first run will alternate the main keyword link with one of the inner keyword links and the second run will alternate the remaining 3 inner page keyword links…this way with 2 runs per site, I’ll be building backlinks to my main page as well as the internal pages.

I just wrote up a post about 130 odd words/7-8 sentences, stuck that in Magic Article Rewriter and hit the “Apply Magic” to have the content auto spun to around 25% unique.  I made a few adjustments for grammar to that and then took 3-4 of those sentences and re-wrote those 3 times each.  Having done this last bit got the uniqueness above 30% , however it brought up the whole nested spun content issue which I’m looking into…

Aside from all that, I’m still looking for outsourcers via GAF and ODesk, I’m in the process of interviewing some of them and having others start up on some trial articles….BTW, in ODesk, don’t have 2 posts open at a time..I was doing that and getting more applicants, but apparently its against ODesk rules as they closed my posts and notified the candidates that it was an invalid posting. :/ …so now as soon as I find my job is not getting applicants, and I’m not happy with any of them, I’ll just close the job and repost it.

GAF doesn’t seem to have this issue though, you can just pay a refundable $5 charge to post multiple times..

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $76 – 4 sales – 2 sniper sales, 1 site #1 and 1 site #2 sale(authority sites)
  • Hops = 151
  • Adsense = $57.54 (some new sites are starting to pop up as earners now that I have done UAW runs on those sites, however I’m still hovering at the $60 avg/day range)
  • Total = $133.54

Day 237 – Adsense Sniper #108 + Backlink Solutions

December 28th, 2009

Got another adsense sniper up and also decided to look into a new application for backlinking…it’s called Backlink Solutions and it’s made be the same people who created Traffic Kahuna.  These programs are pretty much always sold out and you can’t really get into them unless you’re on their list.  If you’re on their list they notify you when there are openings so that you can get in to fill the openings from the people who quit the program that month..

Well, I got an email that Backlink Solutions as well as Traffic Kahuna were going to open up, probably not long, so I decided to spend the day researching those 2 programs as well as other options to try and figure out what I should be doing.  In the end though I decided on trying out Backlink Solutions.

The reason for me wanting to do this is to have additional backlinks going to each site in addition to the UAW backlinks…This wasn’t cheap though as the program costs $99/month.

What you do with this program is you create these spun “snippets” which can be posted up on one of 2 blog networks(or both).  The main blog network has a lot of high PR sites and there is also a user blog network full of user blogs.  Both of them combined total around 300 blogs.

I haven’t had time to test it out yet, but I’ve read on sites that you only need to write 60 word snippets…however inside of the program they suggest 150, so I don’t know exactly what it is you can truly get away with.  But in each blurb, you can have only 1 link.  Now you can spin these and also spin the backlink so that in submitting to the sites it randomly picks 1 of 2 or 1 of 3 different backlinks..

In other news, I’ve also started looking for some new workers and am in the process of interviewing a few people and hiring on people for some trial articles.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $51.42
  • Hops = 158
  • Adsense = $63.48
  • Total = $114.90

Day 236 – Adsense Sniper #107

December 27th, 2009

As you may be able to tell, ever since I’ve been outsourcing, I’ve been taking things a bit easier, IE: I’ve used it as an opportunity to not work quite as hard (IE: 6-8 hours a day 7 days a week).  I’ve been working at getting my business going for a year now, I started making daily logs of my progress around the 28th of last year so I figure with outsourcing, it’s about time I start relaxing a bit more.

I started looking for another outsourcer by reposting on ODesk and GAF…as soon as I can get a reliable 2nd writer, I should be putting up sniper sites at a faster rate than this.

Earnings today were pretty crazy …the 26th was boxing day, Canada’s equivalent to Black Friday..I would say it’s due to that but the sales are from the US.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $123.31 – 5 sniper sales
  • Hops = 147
  • Adsense = $52.97 (adsense is back up it seems)
  • Total = $176.28

Day 235 – Adsense Sniper #106

December 26th, 2009


Hahaha!

I just finished logging all my tax info today and thereafter put up adsense sniper #106.  I may need to start looking for new outsourcers if I can’t rely on one of the girls I have right now..If I don’t get the work I assigned to her tomorrow I’ll start looking for someone to replace her.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $25.48
  • Hops = 140
  • Adsense = 43.19

Day 234 – Adsense Sniper #105

December 25th, 2009

Hey..Merry Christmas guys!

Today I put another adsense sniper up..I also spent a bit of time doing Christmas stuff and also did some of my taxes….

I plan on finishing up on my taxes on Christmas day and probably get another sniper site up as well.

The outsourcer that had been lagging behind got back to me and gave me 13 articles, however I had outsourced 50 of them to her to have done by Friday(Christmas)..Despite being late she is a native English speaker and does write well, so it’s a bit of a quandry.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops = 138
  • Adsense = $36.28 (down due to holidays)

Day 233 – Adsense Sniper #104 + KW Research

December 24th, 2009

Today I put up another adsense site and I also did keyword research to find inner pages for 7 of my sites so that I can give my Ghostwriter more work for the next week.

It seems like that other outsourcer is just totally unpredictable and has no accountability,  I just keep getting excuses and she fails to send me any work on a daily basis as I had outlined… if she doesn’t deliver the 50 articles I had assigned by Friday/Saturday, I’m going to have to just start looking for another person.

Anyway…Enjoy Christmas Eve!

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops = 142
  • Adsense = $31.29 (real low, I’m guessing due to the holidays.)

Day 231 – 7 UAW Submissions + 31 New Keywords Found

December 22nd, 2009

Well, I just got all my UAW submissions done for adsense snipers #74-100 so it will be interesting to see what happens with my sites with all these new backlinks coming in, things usually improve after a batch of UAW submissions…

I also went and did some keyword research and lucked in on a boatload of keywords!  Sometimes you do research for hours and you only find 1 or 2, other times you luck in on a niche that has a boatload of openings, and that’s what happened today.  1 of the niches I found 7 openings in, albeit they are all brand name keywords…in another other niche I found a whopping *20* openings…and whats more, they are for keywords that are 3k-9k exact searches.  The CPC isn’t as high though at $1.10-1.50 I’d say on avg but that has never stopped my other sites from pulling in some nice coin.

Now while I have 1 outsourcer who is working diligently for me, it seems like my other has just gone rogue or something…she was supposed to start working on Monday but I haven’t received anything from her.  It’s odd because she was eager to start, and submitted the first trial articles to me on time, but now she hasn’t sent in any articles for Monday nor left me a message.  It’s all part of dealing with outsourcers, the whole issue with them meeting the deadlines you set…If I can’t rely on her I’m going to have to look for more people as she was to write 50 of my articles each week.

Oh ya, I also noticed my #1 adsense site came back late in the day…whenever it disappears it seems to come back a week later.  And this time it’s back at #1(although the difference in income it generates from #1 vs a few spots lower is negligible I’ve found).

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $26.38 – 1 sale for site #1
  • Hops = 177
  • Adsense = $53.16
