Day 114 – SENuke Day 3

August 27th, 2009

Today what I did was I bookmarked 5 more properties for my first SENuke submission and submitted the rest of the RSS feeds for the 1st submission…I also submitted the spun article via Article Drip Robot to about 12 other article directories(there are more directories in there to submit to than in SENuke).

I then did another submission for an adsense sniper site, creating about 15 web 2.0 sites for it all interlinked, bookmarking about 5 pages and submitting 1/2 the RSS feeds for that as well…

Following this I also wrote up a new article in spin syntax to be used for a submission for one of the sites in my main sniper niche that has been booted off of page 1 for it’s keyword.

Thus far I haven’t been doing any sub-wheels, I’m just going to do 1 submission at a time for now…if I find that the 1 submission is helping, a particular keyword in any noticeable way, then I’ll go back and add a sub-linkwheel or 2 to strengthen the network.

I’ve also been thinking that I should start running SENuke for some product keywords as when browsing the success stories forum, I’ve found that’s what a lot of people have been doign to earn some nice sums of money…

Earnings For Today:

  • I’ve noticed that I’ve had quite a few EBay sales…I never check this as sales don’t come in frequently here, but I’ve had sales for 1 of my sniper sites that I stuck ebay in for: 18th = $0.41, 20th = $18.82, 22nd = $5.67, 24th = $1.06, 25th = $4.04 …I have a total of $32.92 in Ebay comissions for the month so far..
  • CB Sales = $26.38
  • Adsense = $17.91 , a new record high for me (hubs = $6.87, infobarrel = $2.99, + some additional money from one of my adsense snipers)

    Hey Mike- it’s great to hear that your hubs and infos are starting to pay off! Gives me some faith moving forward.

    I have a question for you regarding the back links for them.

    After you create a hub did you only back link with 1 Ezine? Or for each Hub did you do Ezine + Info? Also, did you stop there or apply other methods to the Hubs? For the past 3 days I had $.00 earnings and it’s a bit tough. I wonder if I’m doing something wrong or if it’s just a matter of waiting…Patience is not my strongest attribute.

    If I’m picking the wrong niches I want to make sure I’m not doing it for the next 100 hubs. I followed Court’s model for green keywords but I’m wondering if those are too competitive or if I just need to wait and see what happens. So far I’ve backed up my hubs with only infos as I’m not Platinum with Ezine yet…

    Thanks Mike.

    Oops one more question. Are you submitting the Hubs to any Web 2.0 properties like Digg, etc?

    Thanks Mike.

    Hey Mike,

    Just wanted to share something for you that you might be interested in – Tony’s emotional flood process on MP3. Great way to get into state and visualize past successes and future success. It’s really good.

    Mike, all of my 180 hubs have at least an Infobarrel backlink and about 60 of them have an Ezine Article backlink..

    I was thinking of then running UAW on my top earning hubs, I’ve done it for 2 of them thus far…

    I know what you mean about having to wait…I hated it and got really impatient. As far as if you picked the right niches, you’ve going to have to wait to find out that bit of info..

    I haven’t submitted my hubs anywhere else…I did start off bookmarking my first batch with BMD, but I didn’t get through all of them.

    Thanks Mike. Patience is something that this whole experience is teaching me…slowly. =)

    Hi Mikeman,

    You are an absolute machine. I’m new to all this, and decided to read your post starting all the way back from May to now. That’s what I did all night long last night. I figured if you can push out loads of sites and domains and what not day in and day out, I can read your adventures all in one sitting. So I did. Long but well worth the effort. Incidentally, I also came across Vic’s blog, but since I am, in his words, a f-in noob, I figured I will be in safer waters here in your blog.

    I do have a quick question, if you don’t mind so much. In my research, I came across and old powerpoint delivered by Matt Cutts (I think that’s the google guy’s name?), where he talked about domain names. I can’t find it now, but I think he specified that obviously we want our keywords in the domain name, but that the best way to have long keywords was to separate them by dashes; that was point #1. Point #3 of that same slide said no spaces is worst.

    So, I interpret that to be, if my keywords are “fix world hunger” then the preferred domain name would be fix-world-hunger.com.

    I realize most are simply using this format: fixworldhunger.com

    What’s your take on this? I realize Matt’s presentation was maybe from 2007, so maybe it no longer applies today?

    Hey Stacey,

    Wow, that’s a lot of reading, must have been fun :>

    As far as what Matt was talking about regarding the dashes, I’m not sure…however I can say that at this point in my understanding I would NEVER register a dashed domain.

    You have to put more effort into backlinking in order to get them to rank decently, it’s just not worth the trouble. You would be better off by adding “now/today” or some other such variant to the end of your keyword such as: fixworldhungernow.com….However if it were me, I’d forget the keyword altogether and just go after another one where keyword.com/org/net is available as there are so many keywords that fit that criteria.

    Hi Mikeman,

    Thank you for the prompt reply. After my post, I searched for Matt’s powerpoint again, and found it. It was delivered at WordCamp this year. What he actually stated was that keywords in URL paths should be delimited with dashes. For example, posts should be example.com/fix-world-hunger, rather than example.com/fixworldhunger. So it has nothing to do with domain names. Sorry for the confusion.

    Also, someone may misconstrue what I wrote in my post about Vic. For the record, no, he did not call me a f-in noob. I was trying to be humorous given Vic’s propensity to use that term. I think he’s a mad genius. I mean that in a good way. More power to him.

    Finally, may I ask for clarification about your statement about dashed domains requiring more effort to backlink to get them to rank decently. I’m not sure I understand. Sorry if the answer is obvious, I’m new to all this.

    Thanks again!

    Hey, np Stacey..

    Ya, when you make WordPress posts the default is for the dashes to be inserted so that’s not something you have to think about..

    The reason why I said it takes more effort to rank a dashed domain is because Google favors non-dashed domains. If you’re trying to rank a dashed domain, you’re going to have to work extra hard with the backlinks to get it to rank well, whereas if you had a non dashed domain which is contains your keyword, you barely have to work to get it to rank for the keyword it’s built on(provided there is little competition for that kw).

    Hi Mikeman,

    Gee you’re up at all hours of the night. I thank you for the clarification. Now, if only I can find decent keywords that might convert, then I can start building…

    Dee, nice! I’m guessing it’s substantially over what you were making before…

    and ya, my sleep schedule is all messed up..I don’t get enough sleep and then I nap :/

    Yes, I am earning income every single day. I still keep up with your blog just trying to to spend alot of time in forums and blogs so i can use that time to put into action what I have already learned so far.

    If you ever put out a product, please let me know. would love to be on your list. and finally i plan to purchase several new software next month with some of my earnings. one is UAW, keyword elite and may SENUKE may put that one off till the end of the year…. will be purchasing UAW through your link since I have benefited alot from your knowledge on that.

    Im still not good yet at click bank products for teh most part I guess because I just dont believe in a majority of the products with the exception of one that i use personally. But the main thing is I have found a way to earn consistent income from several streams and right now Im perfecting so I can move on.

    One thing I want to master is the adsense snipers and wanted to know what the profile is for the keywords that you are most successful. for example what is the maximum competing sites I should go up against.
    I really want to stay as low as possible so I dont have to spend too much time promoting and I can set and forget an move on to the next site.

    Hey Dee, I probably won’t be putting out a product anytime soon, if at all…I’m not your average IM’er in that way, I’d rather not get into marketing to others in IM. Glad you picked something up with my experiences with UAW, and thanks :>

    When it comes to promoting CB products, or any type of product as an IM’er, I’ll be brutally honest with you…if you want to be successful, you HAVE to drop that only promoting stuff you believe works bit..I used to think similarly, however that thought process is only a hinderance to your progress, you’ve got to put that aside and think as a marketer..focus on marketing the products that people are buying.

    It’s up to them to make the purchase decision, they need to take full responsibility for their actions/purchases…additionally, they always have the option to return the product if it’s not for them and if the product isn’t good, it will have a high refund rate which you can take note of by analyzing the info within Clickbank.

    As far as what keywords to go after when targeting adsense snipers, that’s something that comes to you with practice…I’m at the point now where I can do a search and watch the statistics from SEO for Firefox load and then tell in a split second whether the kw is good or not.

    You develop a 6th sense for this stuff…and the best way to get to this level is with practice. Don’t be afraid to put up several sites and have several failures..it happens to me all the time, but you learn from it.

    I can tell you that it’s usually a good sign when there are several Web 2.0 properties ranking on page 1 or if other sniper sites are ranking on page 1…I also like seeing lots of PR 0,1 and 2’s on page 1.

    As far as competition in quotes, it’s good to see less than 30 or 20k although I’ve gone after keywords with more competition than that if it looked like the sites on page 1 were easy to overtake(few backlinks/low PR)..

    It’s also going to depend heavily on what niche you’re building the sniper site in…some niches you can build a sniper site and have it rank page 1 next day, others, the keyword may look good but you end up taking a week to rank, or you end up ranking on page 2 despite it looking like a good prospect.

    Happy Birthday Mike!!! and many more…. We will agree to disagree on the marketing issue….
    Im not necessarily addressing this to you specifically. But sometimes I thnk we as IM forget that we are trying to connect with real people and some may hang on our every word. I have a set of guiding principles that will not allow me to promote something that I don’t stand behind or that has not proven itself out in the marketplace to be something that will really add value.

    While there are 1 or 2 products on CB I have no problem promoting the others.
    Yes it is ultimately the consumer that is responsible for the purchases they make however, they rely on the information about the product (some of that info comes from IMers like you and me)in making that position.

    Yes, you can be very successful as an IMer with solid core values that guide you in business. We should operate in a way where we don’t have to worry about anything coming back to bite us in the butt…

    if you dont believe it will… learn from from the recent acai issue… you better believe officials are hunting down every IMer that has promoted this product. But guess who pays the ultimate price other than the customers who believe the product… Other IMers that are trying to run an honest business on the internet.

    Well enough of that. But I had to express my views on that Mike. I am on my way to making millions ethically.
