Day 159 – Submitted 66 EZines

October 11th, 2009

Hahha, Kenny..

Today I got around to submitting 66 of the Word documents I wrote up yesterday to Ezine Articles…That’s going to equate to 132 backlinks spread out amongst 21 of my adsense snipers.

After these articles go live, I will have 10 adsense snipers that each have 18 Ezines submitted to them, with 12 links to the main page and 6 links total to each inner page.

that’s the most backlinking that any 1 site has…The rest of the sites have anywhere from 0-11 Ezines submitted to them(only 3 sites have 0, 1 of which is ranking #2 for it’s term).

I’m going to need to start doing a bit more research again so I can put up some more sites…The only time I’ll stop and start developing more inner pages for any of my sites is when I see my inner pages start ranking…until that happens, I’m just going to focus on backlinking and building more sites…

Hopefully this big batch of backlinks that’s about to go through will help pick things up income wise.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $46.95 – 1 Sale from Site#1 + 1 Sniper sale
  • Hops = 191(new) / 328(old)
  • Adsense = $19.19

    I had read on the WF that the very successful guy doing XF sites has his inner pages ranking mostly due to like 30 links to each internal page. Have you considered doing more than just 6? I don’t see how they’ll make huge rankings if you don’t continue to improve backlinks…just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

    I’m sure when all those articles get approved your earnings will go up – looking forward to seeing by how much. This really does seem to be working for you. Considering that your sites aren’t even that old yet, I think your Adsense will go much higher. Thanks for continuing to post your progress and motivating us all.

    Ya, thanks for the reminder Clefty maybe that will do the trick…the thing is I’ve also heard that there’s a point of minimal returns where if you have like say, more than 10 backlinks from the same place, they stop being effective..I guess I’ll have to see.

    But ya, I could definitely try assaulting the inner pages of my sites until they’re at maybe 15 or more links each and see what happens..

    @Web Career Girl

    Hey, np WCGirl,

    The last time I submitted a load of links, my site made $42 in one day when about 60 or so of them went live…the next day the income dropped back down to the $20/day range and when the last 30 went live, nothing happened, the income stayed at around $20/day.

    But the difference between then and now is that this batch of links is 90% focused on the inner pages..

    also we have to consider that John(xfactor) is only getting his links from one place (ezinearticles). Look what he has accomplished. SO if we continue to follow his lead we should see success as well.

    This is truth!

    Yesterday when I was checking up on my older niche blogs with google’s webmaster tools, I was checking to see if Angela’s back links were sticking from several months ago. On one site in particular, I had used 3 packets of angela’s back links and sadly, Google has only given weight to about 10 of the sites used, and that was out of at least 60+ of the sites in those packets. But the most interesting thing I had seen was that google did in fact love my ezine back links and showed every single article I had submitted to ezines with back links to my niche blog. So I really do believe when john has started he has seen the best result from using ezines. I will continue to use ezines and Goarticles although I may start tossing in some infobarrel articles for links too.

    Hey Mike,

    That’s great. Sorry to hear that you’re still not having much luck with the inner pages. I’ve still found that UAW has been what does the trick for the inner pages, though I distribute the articles at a faster rate (about 40/day) so I’m still not sure about how much these links will stick over the long term – but they DO get a lot more of them indexed and ranking than just doing EZA does.

    In fact, I track all of my pages and keywords with Market Samurai’s rank tracker and any and all inner pages ranking on the first page for me (or even top 20 for that matter) are ones that I did UAW submissions for. I haven’t been doing it long enough to know the staying power of these links, but take that all for whatever it’s worth. I’d imagine that more EZA backlinks will eventually have an impact on these pages though – they have to.

    I have another question since we’re on the subject. I’ve been doing 12-15 EZA articles per site right after I launch the site and put my pages up. I know that X-Factor says that this is often enough to get him ranking in a top 3 spot, but I’ve also seen him say that most of his sites take a few weeks or even a month before their rankings fully mature.

    With that said, I have a bunch of sites that I’ve submitted 15 articles for and most of these backlinks are showing up when I look up the pages in backlink checkers. These sites still aren’t ranking anywhere near where I know I can get them, and a lot still aren’t the first page (or anywhere close to it for that matter).

    My question for you is – based on your recent experience, do you find that letting the backlinks “mature” so to speak can be enough to boost your rankings? I know that I could continue building backlinks until I see the results I’m happy with, but if you think that the power of the backlinks I’ve already built will kick in some more if I wait a couple more weeks, I’m much happier to spend the next few weeks building up a portfolio of more sites instead of spending more time on the ones I’ve built.

    Sorry, I know this was long winded, but I’m sure you’ll probably know the answer to this question based on your own experience. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    @Jeff I know you are probably looking from an answer from Mike… but to reinterate what John has said in his course…… build your sites do your 15 articles to backlink and keep on moving to build more sites as the ones you build mature. if you keep going back to check you are wasting valuable time by checking back everyweek and thinking your site has risen in the search engine and if you dont see it ranking you start to doubt the system and wonder if you should build more back links…

    the best thing you can do, is build, do articles then move on.. then if you must check wait at least 30 days before going back ( I know that’s impossible to do..LOL) but you will get a lot more accomplished.

    bottom line, build, set and forget, build, rinse and repeat. and set a schedule that you go back and monitor progress

    forgot to add…you have to trust the system and keep moving. As you can see that Mike’s success shows that he trusts the system and let’s all follow suite so we can make it to the top together.

    See you at the top!

    Dee, thanks. The only real point of confusion is what John says in his course vs. how he explains it in his WF thread…it’s a little vague.

    On one hand it looks like he’ll preach what you said. On the other hand, in his thread he made it seem like he’d throw up a bunch of sites and continue building backlinks until they ranked, then moving onto others.

    But, if like you said, it takes about 30 days before the weight of the backlinks really kicks in….then I’m all good with the “don’t look back” mentality. Just want to make sure I’m approaching this right!

    Ya, I wonder whats the most Ezines he’s ever had to send to get one of his inner pages ranking…well, I guess I’ll find out myself through trying it out.


    You know I have a number of sites that I’ve submitted backlinks to that aren’t showing up anywhere as well, but that’s expected, that’s just the nature of this game, you have to expect a small fraction of your sites aren’t going to be successful. The more experience you get at this game, the lower the number of unsuccessful sites you will have though.

    I think you’re asking the wrong question, rather than wondering if those backlinks are going to mature and if that site will boost up down the road, what you really need to do is just forget about it and move on..

    Later on some of those sites might eventually show up in the rankings, who knows, but in building the hundreds of sites that I’ve built I’ve had MANY sites “fail”, I just don’t think about them/worry about them…when you’re producing a large quantity of sites each week, you don’t have time to focus on them anyways.

    So..if I were you, I’d focus on the sites that are doing well as well as focus on putting out more sites.

    And Jeff, I have a question for you too since you got your inner pages to rank :>

    Have you been doing UAW submissions for each individual page? When I’ve done my UAW submissions I’ve done all the links back to the main domain only but used the keywords of my inner pages to link back to the main domain…

    What I’ve seen this do in the past with my CB snipers is cause my main domain(not inner page) to start ranking for that inner page keyword, however I’m guessing what you’re doing is doing UAW submissions for each and every page, which is probably more effective…is this in fact what you’re doing?

    Jeff, one other thing…we’re going after keywords here which have very little competition, they should wind up ranking on the first or at least second page of Google within a weeks time..if they don’t, it could be a niche that Google holds back ranking quickly for.

    If this is the case, like I said, best to just throw up a few backlinks(not too many), move on and revisit it in the future, if there’s improvement in the rankings down the road because Google has let up it’s noose, then you can re-assess what to do next.

    Thanks for the response. To answer your question about UAW, here’s what I’m doing.

    I’m doing submissions for each inner page. My typical site will have 4 inner pages (not counting privacy, about us, etc.) and about a week ago, I decided to start regularly doing one UAW submission for each inner page on my site. I’ll link back to the inner page and the main page within each submission.

    It’s a pain, because I’m being extra careful and don’t want my UAW submissions to include any of my content from the inner pages…so all in all, I’ll end up having to rewrite each article 3 times, which is a pain. The whole process for each site takes about 2 hours’ worth of time, which is the same amount of time it takes for me to set up a site and write 4 articles, so I’d really rather not have to do these UAW submissions if possible.

    With that said though, I’ve seen a bunch of my inner pages (but not all yet) ranking within 3 or 4 days of the submission. I can’t say that about any of the ones that I did only EZA backlinking for. Seems weird to me.

    Also, I’m not sure if you’ve bought any domain names with dashes in them. I’ve been experimenting to see what works and what doesn’t, but none of my inner pages on domains with dashes in them are even ranking after the UAW submissions.

    I know that we both have SEnuke and I’d love to play around with it a little to see if I could find something that works there. I’ll probably try something out either way, but if you have an idea or two that you haven’t gotten around to but want to look into, let me know – I’d be happy to put it to work on one of my sites (especially one that hasn’t otherwise ranked yet) and see how it does.

    Jeff, it sounds to me like you’ve got yourself a goldmine if you can so easily get your inner pages ranking with UAW….

    I’m now interested in trying this out to see how it works for me. I’ve always submitted at 7/day which is safe, it doesn’t end up throwing your site around in the rankings…however I’m up for testing out a higher number of submissions and doing submissions for each individual page to see what happens.

    If I were you, instead of sending 1 link to the main page and 1 to the inner page, I’d make both links to inner pages…I’d also work on shortening down your writing time for UAW articles…perhaps you could shorten it down further if you wrote on a topic you know a lot about..

    For reference, I do my submissions in just under 1 hour.

    Another idea would be to use SENuke on the inner pages, that’s something I had wanted to try, especially since they added all those new Web 2.0 sites…

    Thanks for the suggestions Mike. I’ve figured that keeping my UAW articles relevant to the keywords would give me a bigger boost than writing random ones (especially considering the fact that the relevant UAW articles will rarely outrank my own after a few weeks), but I’m definitely willing to try out some subjects I know more about to see if it’s just as effective. That’d be great if it was, because it’s so boring doing 12 rewrites of articles in some of these niches.

    I’ve found that 40/day still does bring fluctuation, but that after a while (anywhere from two weeks to a month), my ranks for those terms will usually settle. You could always try something like 25 to go somewhere in between. That’s about 50 days’ worth of backlink building if you choose the right tags/categories.

    I also do mix up my anchor text and put through random variations, but for the sake of building the ranks for the keywords I’m pushing most, I’ll make those about 50% of the author resource box versions. A little variety, but pushing the ones I’m targeting most. I’ve found that if I don’t do this, the main keywords I’m going for won’t rank as quickly.

    I’ll play around with SEnuke on the inner pages of one or two of my sites that I’ve only done EZA submissions for – that way we’ll see if there’s any measurable impact as far as getting them ranked.
