Day 182 – Interesting SENuke, UAW, Ezine Results + AS#49

November 3rd, 2009


Looks like doing 3 adsense snipers yesterday really wore me out mentally…I only got around to doing 1 adsense sniper today.  I’ll be sticking to 2 a day more often than not now..

I noticed some interesting results through using Magic Rank Tracker to see where my sites rank in Google after doing things like Ezine submissions/SENuke submissions and UAW submissions and I’ve found some interesting things(BTW, I now find using a program like this to be critical to judging the effectiveness of your backlinking strategies)..

1. Ezine Articles

One thing I noticed about Ezines was that for a decent number of the inner pages I submitted Ezine Articles to(3 ezines per inner page, although some had 5-6), some of the inner pages went from not ranking in the top 100 in Google to ranking anywhere between #30-#80 on average.

Now just because I did the Ezine submissions to the inner pages, didn’t mean I was guaranteed to get those pages ranking between #30-#80, but over time SOME of them did.

For inner pages I have done absolutely no Ezine backlinking to however, they remain completely out of the top 100 search results in Google.


Ezine Articles help inner pages, but not nearly enough…it’s possible there may be more improvement in another month from now, or by submitting more than 6 Ezines to each page, however from what I’ve done here, it doesn’t look like fast results come out of Ezine backlinks to inner pages.  As for how well they help the main domain, I haven’t tracked that with this program, however from what I’ve seen outside of tracking, Ezines do help the main domain rank better, faster.

2.  SENuke

On sites I ran SENuke on for the inner pages and then checked up on later, I noticed similar results that I saw with the Ezine Articles…it was helping the inner pages rank, but nowhere important, usually between #30-#80 again.

However, when I ran SENuke on domains that already had a boost from Ezines, I sometimes saw a nice result…One example is a site which had 5 links to an inner page which got it to #23, which then had SENuke run on it(links from about 30 Web 2.0 properties), it went up 15 spots to #8 for front page viewing…Still, it’s quite a lot of work to get that, and it didn’t always happen like this..

for example, another Site had 4 Ezine links to the inner pages which got 1 page to #71, after SENuke, it only went to #61…so sometimes doing SENuke after Ezines brought things to the front page, other times it didn’t improve it enough to get it there…then of course there were situations where there was no noticable change in the rankings despite having done Ezines + SENuke.

3.  UAW

I recently submitted 10 UAW articles at 40/day to 10 of my sites…these were to build links to 2 inner pages per site, so that’s 80 links total a day.  This is spread out among about 17 days and right now I’m probably on day 3 or 4 of the submission cycle…

Now for the sites I’ve done the inner page submissions to at that rate, I’ve also done another UAW submission to the main page at 7/day, keep that in mind when I go over the results…

What were the results?

Site 1 results:

Well, for this, lets say the keyword for one of my sites was “dog treats”… for this site, the main keyword went up 3 spots to #5 on page 1 and the singular version of the main domain keyword (ie: “dog treat”) went from #55 to #11.  This is all from trying to build backlinks to the INNER pages…somehow it affected the main domains ranking!

My only guess is that this combined with the 7/day UAW submission for the main page somehow resulted in this.

Site 2 results:

Lets say this one was targetting “cat treat” with it’s domain, for the keyword “cat treats”, the plural, it went up from #15 to #5, which brought in a surge of traffic for this site today.

So what does all this say?  Well, for 1. 3-6 ezines per inner page is not enough to see anything substantial.. 2. Ezines + SENuke yields decent results some of the time.  3.  UAW seems to yield great results however in an unexpected way.

It’s still to early to say what the final results of the SENuke runs and UAW runs were of course.. but it will be interesting to see what happens in a weeks time due to the UAW submissions, I’m curious to see if like with you Jeff, they inner pages for more of my sites really boost up there.


  • Adsense = $45.61 – Today was a KILLER adsense day.  Part of it was due to some sites getting a boost from UAW, but another great part of it was due to a handful of newly created sites now bringing in a couple of dollars!  If these new sites keep on doing this, I can see how this income can start growing fast if I keep pumping out 2 sites a day.
  • CB = $45.52 – 2 sniper sales
  • Hops = 208(new) / 377(old analytics)

    Hey Mike,

    I’ve been following along for a couple of weeks now and I like what your doing here with IM.

    I thought I could pass along a great tip I learned to help get better targeted Adsense ads, which in return, should increase your adsense CTR.

    It is a tip from someone I follow on the Warrior forum. I integrate this tip into every Adsense site that I create. Here is the link to the video on his blog explaining the tip.

    Hope this tip will help you get to your $4,000/month goal faster!

    These are interesting results so far! Thanks so much for taking the time to publish this stuff!!

    When you first put up your new sites do you just do ezines or what is your backlink strategy for your new sites?

    Is Magic Rank Tracker still available?

    I meant to add do you just follow what John says in his book or do you do something else for backlinks to new sites?

    Hey thanks Jared…You know I came across this a while back but didn’t pay it any attention, but it seems like some people who implemented it in the comments are seeing results…have you noticed a difference?

    I’ll definitely look into applying this at some point(although my CTR is already freakishly high) thanks man.

    @Lisa Stoops

    Hey np Lisa. When I first put up sites, what I do is:

    1. Publish the first 3 pages instantly and ping them all with Pinggoat
    2. Digg the site
    3. Bookmark the site (used to use Bookmarking Demon, but that’s no good anymore, so I’m using SENuke…Bookmarkwiz is apparently good too although I’ve yet to look into it)
    4. I RSS submit via RSS Submit/SENuke’s RSS tool & via RSS Bot

    I then schedule the next 2 pages to be published the following 2 days, and I try and ping those as they are published(these are XSite Pro pages so the pinging isn’t done automatically).

    After that I continue to build more sites, in big batches..then I go back and backlink via Ezines.

    For a lot of my sites I’ve given them 12 ezine backlinks to the main page and 3 to each inner page…some sites have 5-6 to the inner pages.

    Then I had also gone and run UAW at a rate of 7/day on 20 of my sites…I recently followed this up with 10 of those sites getting backlinks built to 2 of the inner pages at 40/day to be done over 17 or so days…

    There are 7 other sites where I ran SENuke on as well, giving about 25-30 Web 2.0 links to each inner page. For some sites this and the Ezine submissions were all that was done, other sites this was added ontop of the 1 UAW submission at 7/day.

    And I had initially been following what John set out in his book(Ezine submissions) but deviated as soon as I realized it was not bringing in results fast enough on its own.

    @Lisa Stoops

    And ya, you can get Magic Rank Tracker…the only thing I wish is that you could more easily browse through your various websites, you have to click them individually to open each profile. If there was one that allowed you to browse your profiles more readily I’d get that.

    Magic Rank Tracker is a cheap option though and does the job..

    Thanks Mike for your response! I think I just need to get my system down so I can crank a couple more out a week. Right now I can only do two a week and it’s draining. 🙂 But I’m sure I’ll be able to pick up the pace soon.

    But I’m glad to note that that one site that fell off the face of the earth is back in the #6 position. So I will NOT worry about sites moving all around and just continue building sites.

  7. November 3rd, 2009 at 17:41 | #7

    Sweet Mike….thanks for sharing your results. Been a while since I’ve made a post but I do read your site everyday…and If i forget Sara always keeps me up to speed lol.

    P.S – How do I get my pictures in the avatar on your blog?

    @Lisa Stoops

    Ya nice, never stop and worry about sites that aren’t doing what you want them to, just move on..

    @Desmond Owens

    Hey Desmond, np man… About the pics, you just have to setup a “Gravatar” go to gravatar.com, setup an account and use the email you’re going to be posting with and setup a pic for it there. Then when you come here to post and use that same e-mail, it will load up the pic you put in your gravatar account..

    Definitely still getting some rankings on the inner pages from UAW. It’s been two weeks since my backlinking blitz and the results are starting to show. The sites where I did UAW submissions are hands down outperforming the sites where I just did eza submissions, so it’s something to keep in mind. Still don’t know about the long term since eza sites are more likely to build up pagerank, but I tweaked my routine to what I’d mentioned before and it’s going pretty well so far. 5 eza submissions to the main domain at one per day and 2 UAW submissions for each site, with each linking to the inner pages.

    I’ve also adjusted my submissions to either 20 or 25 per day. I’m liking 25 since it seems to give me the same boosts and ends up sending my submissions out for another 2 weeks or so compared to what 40 does.

    Use marketsamurai for your rank tracking. You won’t have to switch views by site.

    After your UAW submissions have completed on an article, do you just plan on getting new submissions created for more back linking or will you just edit the current article submissions so that they are slightly different in content?

  11. Mikeman

    Nice Jeff..UAW submissions can get your PR to 1(most likely) or even 2 depending on the article directories it submitted to..

    Hmm, are you doing 20-25 for all 4 of your inner pages at once without your site getting knocked about? I may try that out so I can get the backlinks going to more inner pages rather than waiting for the 40/day to finish.

    Thanks for the tip on Market Samurai, I’ll look into that.

    Yes I do see a difference. I get better targeted ads for each particular page topic. Highly suggested.

  13. Jeff
    November 4th, 2009 at 11:04 | #13

    @Mike – Yeah, I’ll do two articles. Each one is about any random niche. I figured out a way around the way they rejected before….I’ll just make my signature something like “See more articles by this author about topics like ‘keyword1’ and ‘keyword2′”. Then my second article will be submitted the same day, linking to keyword3 and keyword4.

    There are sites that it still doesn’t seem to work on (yet), but the overall net effect is that my top earners are all sites that I’ve done UAW submissions for. I’ll always submit two articles per site at a time, I’ve never waited like you have. I think it’s fine, since each inner page is really only picking up about one “registered” backlink per day this way.

    Ideally I’d like to try working the keywords into somewhere closer to the beginning of the article itself, which I’ve done a few times. It’s just hard if you’re writing about a random niche, though everything I’ve read would indicate that the backlinks may carry more weigh this way. I wrote one article that was specifically about “random topics I’ve written about” and alternated the backlinks of 6 different sites so that two would show up in each variation of the article. I don’t know if it’s coincidence or if it could have to do with some other backlinking work I’ve done for these sites, but 5 of the 6 have made some of my better gains of the last few weeks.

    @Sara – I’ll probably evaluate the rankings of the pages a few weeks after they’re done to see where they’ve landed, and whether or not they begin to slip. I know that they say you can wait a couple of months and resubmit the very same article, though I haven’t tried this yet so I can’t really say whether this works. Have you ever tried resubmitting the same ones?

  14. November 4th, 2009 at 13:11 | #14


    Hey Jeff,

    Yes I actually have tried resubmitting the same ones and they were denied. The articles were from my first run which was about last December. The articles were denied saying that they were not long enough in length even though obviously they ran the first time with no problems. Another one of the submissions was denied saying that it appeared my article seemed “too promotional” rather than loaded with information which is crap because obviously that article also had been approved and sent out before.

    So I guess trying to reuse older submissions may not be the best way to go.

    Hmm good to know, I guess thats why I got away with it.. I would say “In addition to writing on XXX, Bob has also written on yyy and zzzz”.

    If you’re doing 2 submissions at 20-25 then that’s pretty much the same as 1 at 40..2 submissions at 40/day could be risky…If you’re not having any adverse effects with what you’re doing, I’ll look into doing that also..

    I’ve never heard anything about backlinks carrying more weight because the keyword the article is written on is closer to the top of the page, that sounds hokey, who said this?…perhaps those sites did well because the backlinks were being rotated such that it looked like more natural link building..ie: 1 day 1 site gets links, the next 2 days it doesn’t, then it gets links again on the 4th and 5th day etc..

    Where can I find Magic Rank Tracker? A search on Google does not lead me anywhere? Maybe I can use Mike’s affiliate link if he has one.
