Day 202 – 5 UAW Articles Outsourced + 6 UAW Articles Submitted

November 23rd, 2009

I’ve just about submitted UAW articles for all of my adsense snipers, at least for the main domains..I just need to do 6 more submissions tomorrow and that will be wrapped up.

In other news, that little test I did to see if I can submit an Ezine article with an off topic resource box worked, it was accepted, as have all my 200+ articles I submittedย  in the last 2 or so months…so it doesn’t look like Ezine has changed at all.

If you’re having problems getting Ezine to accept your article’s due to your resource boxes, it’s probably because you’re not at the Platinum level.ย  They are more stringent on you if you are at Basic or lower.

I finally got my shared hosting account setup right with an aged domain to create the add-on domains from so I can start up on making my WordPress Mage sites also…there will be a bit of a learning curve before I can start pumping these out, but also, I don’t want to be building these fast anyways.

WordPress Mage BTW is out at 8pm EST today, the 23rd, until the 26th for anyone who is interested in it.

Earnings For Today:


  • CB = Wow…4 days in a row of nothing? I’m used to seeing $400-450/week, then it dropped to $250 now its dropped even lower.
  • Hops = 106(new analytics)
  • Adsense = $47.13

    Hey in regards to your adsense sites; do you have them all on the same hosting account?

    that sucks in regards to your CB income; however the great news is that your adsense income keeps growing. Eventually you will get your CB income back up again!!

    How much time do you use per day in order to work? On average. Just a curiosity ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ouch! That sucks about your CB sales, or lack thereof rather. Man, aren’t you ever so glad you branched out to other ways to earn money besides relying on those sites as passive income?

    Hey Mike, the CB sales (or lack thereof) seem odd to me ๐Ÿ™

    I assuming you have many sites (like 50 or more) with the CB link on them, right?
    …and you are only promoting one CB product, right?

    This is the same one that the vendor changed the sales page? right?

    Have you tried contacting the vendor to see if his overall sales are down?
    …have you checked his sales page? …anything changed on it?
    ..have you tested your links(s) to see if your hoplink ID shows up?

    Just trying to think of things I’d check/do myself. I hope it comes back up for you, which it probably will.

    Hmm……you were are making a killing online. I wish I could even make just 1 CB sale.

    Just a question. Do you have all your ezine articles on one author name?? I have a platinum account, but don’t want to put all my sites on one name. I want to reduce my competition.

    @Tech Blogger
    It’s a good idea to use many pen names. You can have multiple pen names on your account.

    @Susan

    Hey Susan, ya, they are all on 1 reseller account right now.

    Ya, I always seem to run into these setbacks which makes me feel like I’m running in place.. frustrating! I’ll keep on creating/promoting and hopefully it will pass.

    @alex

    Hey Alex, I’d say I work at least 6 hours solid a day.. I don’t work straight though, I work on and off, take breaks, so that 6 hours may actually be 8 hours….At times I work 12 hours though or 16 hour days.

    @Sara

    Ya, glad I got my adsense revenue, and soon I hope to see EBay up higher as well.

    @nick

    It especially sucks when you have 100+ sites giving you $0..

    @Bruce

    Ya, it is …I checked my hops and found that they have gone down recently, ever since the beginning of the month…that also coincides with a lot of new competition I’ve been getting for some of my keywords, new sites have been popping up so I think the new competition has something to do with it.

    I’ve contacted the vendor before, nothing has changed on the sales page and my aff id is showing up…it’s either the new competition that’s doing this or possibly a drop in traffic for this niche.

    BTW, I just got a sale today, a small $16 one..

    I’ve found that the hops have gone down for me even if I am ranked higher than my competition. I have a theory that even if you rank higher than another sniper site, the fact that the domain name is targetted to the user’s search query makes them able to pull traffic much easier and they can actually pull sales from you.

    I have seen this several times now, both with my CB sites getting new snipers and also with me putting up 2 adsense snipers for 1 kw…

    With my adsense snipers, when I used to have my #1 earner, it was ranked #1 and I had another top level domain for the same keyword at #8. the #8 domain earned only a couple of dollars while the main domain was there, but as soon as my main domain vanished, the #8 sniper has seen a tripling of it’s earnings. that showed me that if the user isn’t finding sites at the top that seem to match their query(the title/domain name is not to their liking), some get funneled down to the lower pages that may be more targeted.

    Another example is for another keyword, I did the same thing but instead the 2 sites started ranking side by side within the top 5 of page 1….what ended up happening was rather than getting more traffic, the traffic was SPLIT between the two, literally.

    So again, my theory is any kind of sniper showing up on page 1 can sap your sales and that may be what is happening right now for my CB sites..

    @Tech Blogger

    Hey man, I would never put all my Ezines under 1 name. I have many different author names. You don’t want the people reading the articles to think there is this 1 guy who is a specialist on karate, antique furniture, toaster ovens, weightlifting and archery.

    Also, you don’t want all your sites in 1 account for other aff marketers to find all your niches.

    Keep the same platinum account but on that, make new author names. A good thing to do is create 1 new one for every new niche you enter..although when you’re like me and you’re in almost 100 different niches, sometimes you get a bit lax with that rule.
