Day 1 – AKA Day 129, AKA The Last 5 Days
Ok, I guess I’ll call this Day 1, even though it’s more like month 4.5 or Day 129 (I started back on December 28th 2008)..
Today I didn’t do too much other than work on setting up my site so I’ll take this time to go over what has been going on the last 5 or so days.
As of right now, I have created 29 sniper sites…I also have 13 more domains registered in 2 different niches that I have yet to turn into sniper sites. The 29 sniper sites plus my 8 main authority sites = 37 sites total.
Now to give you an idea of the kind of hops these sites are generating, have a look at my hop count for today:
These are my tracking id’s in Clickbank. No Tracking Code + Null are for my authority sites with Clickbank products (Site#1 – Site #5). Out of the 42 hops there, about 26 are for Site #1, 3 for Site #2 and 13 for Site #3. The rest of the 48 hops are for my sniper sites!
It’s crazy, I think today is the first day the sniper site hops have been MORE than the hops I got for my main authority sites. Before I was only getting an extra 20 or so hops from them. BTW, today is also a record for the # of hops, I’ve never had 90 hops in 1 day before.
So, aside from all that, I should mention that I got 2 more Sniper site sales in the past 5 days…1 was yesterday for $31.85(new niche) and the other was today for $20.04…this makes for 8 Sniper Site sales within the last 30 days for a grand total of $172.13.
What’s interesting to note is that the site that got the $31.85 commission has only gotten 3 hops IN TOTAL before getting the sale and the sniper site that got $20.04 today has gotten 28 hops total in it’s lifetime and yet got *3* sales!
It’s insane…I looked over those sites to try and see why the conversion could be so high and I realized that when I read my own copy, it actually read quite well, better than some of my other sites, so I believe that has something to do with it…it could also be the keyword though.
I don’t always get results like that though. One of my Sniper Sites that gets a ton of hops (104 in the last month) has had 2 sales which isn’t too bad and then there is one that has had 126 hops yet only 1 sale…Then of course I have a boatload of other sniper sites that have anywhere from 3-36 hops so far without a sale.
Now I started creating these sites around March 26th and most of the 29 I have were created within the last month, so I think it’s still too early to be thinking I should be getting more returns for my efforts.
One thing I’ve noticed is just how HUGE a difference going from position 5-10 on page#1 up to position 1 on page 1 can make. 1 of my sniper sites today was able to make that transition and rather than getting the usual 1-3 hops a day it instead got 12 hops today being at #1!
I’ve decided recently that I’d slow down on the site creation for the time being and work on building backlinks to these 29 sites I’ve already created. I’m planning on doing a Unique Article Wizard run on them, maybe covering 2 sites per article I submit with UAW….Then after that, I’ll submit backlinks for the sites via Steve’s backlinks(similar to Angela Edwards’ links).
There’s more I want to talk about but this has gotten kinda long so I’ll go over the other stuff in the next post :>
Earnings For Today:
- 1 sale for a sniper site = $20.04
- 1 sale for Site#1 = $26.20
- Adsense = $4.30
Here’s a visual look at my sales over the past little while:
