Day 102 – Figuring Out What To Do

August 15th, 2009


LOL Brandon DiCamillo is hilarious…

So today I just finished off my last 2 sniper sites…the last batch have not been ranking as of yet for some reason but I’ll keep tabs on them and when they do I’ll put up the final review page.

I noticed that one of my sites I put up a LONG time back was ranking page #1 and I hadn’t put up the review page for it….I just went back and posted up the review for that…these kind of things can get by you if you’re putting up a lot of websites.

Oh ya, another thing I noticed was that it looks like there is another person again who is having a go at my kw’s…This guy is now ranking #10 on page 1, below me..They used the same theme, they didn’t do the niche research since they cut and pasted the technical stuff out of my blog, then they reworded everything else…

Anyways, I’ve decided that one of the things I’m going to be doing now is backlinking some of my sniper sites up…I’m going to be trying out Firepow for this as it’s one backlinking source I have at my disposal that I have yet to take advantage of….

Another thing I did today was had a talk with Ben about my hubs…it’s been a month since my first big batch of hubs, 3 weeks for the majority of the remaining ones and I’m not seeing the kind of results I had expected..

Ben’s a friend of mine so I gave him complete transparency into my accounts to see what he had to say about what I’m doing wrong…What I found out was that apparently I was in the wrong niches for a lot of my hubs…

The other thing that was a problem was Traffic…I wasn’t getting enough of it and it’s likely because I didn’t have enough backlinks to get things to rank in the niches I’m in.  Apparently Infobarrel/Ezine isn’t always enough.  So what I’m thinking of doing is finding out what my best performing hubs are and building backlinks to them with UAW and using the Firepow blog network and see how that goes…

I’m also going to be searching for Adsense niches to target where the competition might not be as tough and see how I fare…If I happen across some good keywords that I see my hubs ranking on page 1 for, I may go and create some adsense snipers as well at this point.

The next few days I’ll be doing a lot of keyword research and looking for some good niches to get into…

Earnings For Today:

  • Hmm, a $0 day again
  • Hops 219(new) / 435(old)
  • Adsense = $3.71 (hubpages $0.03)
  • Niche Devil = $2.92 .info Ebay Sale 😮

    Hey Mike,

    I’m working at building a ton of Adsense sniper sites at the moment. If you decide to go down that route and would like to to exchange some info/tips, send me an email or something with your contact details.

    Writing a blog like this is great and all, but I doubt its worth the extra competition/people copying your hard work.

    I still don’t get how people are finding out your niches.

    Adsense sniper sites can easily be trace once your adsense code is expose regardless of niche. Product sniper sites are much harder to follow specially if sniper sites are independent to each other.

    And ya, Ruby, if someone finds 1 of your adsense sites, they can find all the others…and all it takes then is for some ass to clickbomb you for 1 week straight for you lose your adsense account.

    I really think it is an idea to set up a second adsense account when earnings become substantial.

    Someone asked John as in X. factor that question and he says one acct is good enough. Imagine someone finding his sites, (with his visibility someone is bound to find them…) and then sabotaging his $300+ account! Actually, he did lose his acct. after having shared his sites on Digital Point. Someone sabotaged him…

    AFAIU, it is OK to have more than one acct. if you set up a corporation.

    May be worth it down the road…
