Day 10 – Success!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions…today I decided to swap out my old product for my troublesome sniper site niche with a new one.  By the time I was finished it was pretty near the end of the day, but low and behold, right after switching programs I managed to get 1 sale for $27.12!

So it seems like it was the program…I hope that the sales continue to come in more regularly now with this program, time will tell!

That alone took me quite a while as I had to trade out banners and switch around text on all of my sites, I’m glad it’s all over!  Other than that, today I got my UAW submissions from yesterday done, so now I’ve got all my sniper sites building backlinks on autopilot which is a good feeling.

Seeing as how I got a sales in this niche, I did some more keyword research into this niche to find other sites I could start up.  The thing about this niche is there are a lot of highly searched keywords, the only question is if they are profitable because they are only 2 word keywords.

I just may try it for the heck of it, it’s hard to pass up easy hops, I mean these keywords have 40-75k searches/month forPHRASE match…they do have high competition, in quotes it ranges between 50-150k, but I know I can take some of these….BTW, I just checked one of my sniper sites that is a 2 word keyword and it’s #1 out of 53k competition….and…I have another 2 word keyword that is #1 out of about of 61k competition.  I normally don’t check where my sites are in the rankings and only pay attention to the # of hops the sites get, so I didn’t even know my sites were doing that good :>

As impressive as those numbers seem though, I think something is wonky…the site that got #1 out of 53k competition and supposedly gets 50k searches/month for PHRASE match in the Google Keyword Tool only got 41 visits today..and 2 hops.

In contrast, I have a site that’s ranked #3 for a keyword that has 15k searches a month for phrase match and it got 43 visits and 10 hops.


I think I’m going to be spending a lot more time doing keyword research, I really want to find some money keywords in other niches..

Earnings For Today:

  • $27.12 For a Sniper Site in the the troublesome niche
  • Adsense = $3.06
  • A record # of hops, 174! (For the troublesome niche, 55 of these were for the old product and 36 for my new main product, however I also have a secondary new product I tried on a few sites that got 8 clicks….that’s 99 hops total for this niche!)

    Hey Mike thats great news. It will be interesting to see over the next few days how this new product performs, but it’s looking promising so far.

    I haven’t built any snper sites yet, I have been concentrating on building my authority sites, but I did pick up a copy of google sniper recently and do intend to start on some soon. I’m sure that the info you are sharing here will be a great help to me and many others.

    That’s good news. Hopefully the sales will keep coming in.

    Yay! Hopefully more sales to come!

    Awesome! I’ve had a ton of hops from old sites with no sales from them and I was thinking of doing the same thing.

    Yay! Hope the new program continues to do well. All the pics you have used on this blog are great, but the one today made me really laugh out loud when I saw it. 🙂

    Thanks everyone :>

    Ya, I hope the sales continue…You know I had a chat with George about having made 39 sniper sites but only making $200 so far and this is what he said:

    “I would recommend taking more time to create this sites. Is traffic the problem or your preselling? Figure that out and then work to correct it is my only advice really.

    But slow down, 39 sites is loads. And to answer your question, my first site was very successful, then over the next 10 or so I would say that 5 out of them went on to make 500 a month as well.”

    SO now that I think about it, there is a way for me to improve all of my pages, since in this niche, I actually didn’t include the about me section..I have included it in all my other sniper site niches except this one, but I’m going to go back over them and add one.

    Other than that, apparently I need to slow down, hah…not sure what else I could do to my sites though to make them bring in more traffic or be more profitable…I’ll have to talk with George more..

    I would say the other factor is time. I think it hasn’t been quite long enough to judge how they will do overall. Give them a few months, do a bit of promotion on them and then you can look back and see how they did 🙂

    Awesome work Mike! What Clefty is is true…time is the winner in this IM game. Today I made my first CPA Offer sale and I had not touched the site or the web 2.0 sites for it nor built back links for it in over 3 weeks. Just out of no where it’s not getting traffic. Amazing!

    Hahha, Sara, good one! That’s cool that your site is picking up all of a sudden.
