Day 152 – Adsense Sniper 24 & 25 + KW Research Tips

October 4th, 2009

Today I got another 2 adsense snipers done, plus the content written for a 3rd adsense sniper which I have yet to put up.  I got a few questions from a friend and I thought I’d bring those up here as well in case anyone here might pick something up from it.

Regarding the question of whether you should leave adsense ads off your sites when you first put them up…in my experience I have found that leaving adsense ads ON your site when you first put it up doesn’t harm it, in fact, I’ve had my site rank the very next day and pull in clicks….This has happened numerous times and I have received steady clicks from said sites ever since.

The other question I wanted to address was that of research and finding some good money keywords.  One of the biggest secrets to finding money keywords, the kinds of keywords that will bring you in $3-5/day consistantly, is just doing MASSIVE amounts of research.  Really, if you’re not finding those amazing keywords, you’re not spending enough time researching.  Ever since I made research more of a priority, I started finding some amazing money keywords which have turned into some steady performers for me.  This was something I never used to do before.  For instance, with my CB snipers, I would just spam out sites on any keyword which looked half decent.

I’ve learned to be a LOT more meticulous now.  Make sure you allocate a significantly larger portion of your time to just brainstorming and researching new niches.  The more you do this, the more you’ll realize how this method can never get saturated as you find so many gems scattered across niches you’ll never hear anyone mention in any IM forum.

The way you find these obscure money niches is by:

1.  Using the Google Product Research Tool

2.  Using the Brainstorm tool in MNF

3.  Spending time thinking up expensive items off the top of your head.

when you find a base niche and do research on all the keywords, analyzing the # of searches, analyzing the competition numbers and analyzing the ranking websites on page 1(PR  & backlinks), you will slowly start to get a feel for all these various niches.

Another thing which will help you pick out even more money keywords is making sure you pick up some real world experience as far as setting up websites and seeing where they rank for various keywords you’ve targeted.  Once you’ve gone after a good 15-20 different keywords in different niches and seen how your sites end up ranking after doing various amounts of promotion, you will learn what kinds of sites you can overtake on page 1(in terms of PR/Backlinks), what kind of competition numbers are good, what kind of authority sites you’ll be able to overtake easily(Ex: PR -/0/1/2 amazon’s/craigslist’s/tradekey/yelp/yahoo answers/bizrate/nextag) and so on…

I can tell you that after all my experience, I can tell by just looking at the first page of results with SEO for Firefox whether I can rank at the top, middle or bottom for that keyword, usually within 5 seconds.

If I see certain domains and I see a certain # of low PR pages the instinct triggers.  I then at times check the Yahoo backlinks to further solidify my hunches.  When you get to this level, you can begin finding even more keywords because you won’t be looking for them within say the narrow band that is outlined by XFactor in his book(even he mentions you can find keywords outside of the green).  There are many keywords that I go after that are in the yellow and some even in the red that I wind up ranking for…

But basically, finding those keywords that will take you to a full time income, comes down to doing a MASSIVE amount of keyword research.  Set up a habit of doing it on a regular basis and then writing down the money keywords you find.. I have built up a listing in a txt document of a variety of keywords in various niches that I can potentially target.  I list the “keyword / #of searches / # of competing pages /cost per click / SOC” and bunch up the keywords that are in the same niche, separating the ones that are in different niches by a line.

Each time I feel this list is shrinking in size, I go and do another round of massive research to expand upon it…sometimes I find keywords to add, sometimes I don’t…either way I end up gaining perspective on a wide variety of niches and then pondering on those, I can often come up with additional related niches to consider.

    What is the Google Product Research Tool? I don’t think that I use that today.

    Np Bruce, glad you got something out of it..

    I also wanted to mention, that apart from learning new things, it’s also important to pick up direction from people…especially if you’ve been in the business for a long time and almost nothing is new to you anymore.

    I think a lot of people here can benefit from this bit of info but don’t realize it yet..

    If you’re not having success or the success you want, spend ***significantly*** more time in your keyword research activities and you will begin to unearth niche and keyword treasures which will lead to many dollar sign epiphanies…You will then be more excited about each site you put out and be able to create a greater number of successful sites.
