Day 217 – Adsense Sniper #90 + Adsense Milestone Again!

December 8th, 2009

Zach Galifianakis, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim were commissioned by Absolut Vodka to make a film for their website. They were told they could do anything they wanted as long as they mentioned the product…this was the end result.

Wow… I just can’t believe where my income has been going the last few days….

Just a few days ago on Nov 30th I had my highest day which was $67.75, then I had another highest day on Dec 2nd at $77.62 and now Dec 7th at $82.01!

It’s just INSANE how fast it is growing… as I’ve stated before, it’s a combination of me making more money from some of my new sites and also from some of my old sites starting to earn more by ranking higher or for more long tail keywords…a lot of the time the long tail keywords are variations of the keywords I created my inner pages on, the main long tail variations end up pulling in 30, 20, 18 or 10 extra visitors/month and my top sites usually have 1 or 2 of those..then there are of course a few that bring in 5 or so and plenty that are at 1 or 2/month.

I’m feeling pretty good about where my income is headed right now to say the least :>ย  I don’t want to jinx anything, but I think if things continue as they are, I could be at $100/day of adsense within two months.

The income is pretty stable on a day to day basis.. I like how there are no serious dips in the income.ย  In the last few days as my income has reached an avg of $50/day and now $60/day I’ve seen even more of my newly created sites start popping up in the middle range $1-3 and as of today it now looks like I have 9 sites that are earning over that and probably several more with the potential to earn over that amount on some days.

I hope it’s not premature, but at the moment after seeing these results and taking into consideration what my actions have been to achieve them, I feel I’ve figured out the Adsense Sniping system.

I feel that now it’s just a matter of duplication, as long as I keep doing this, as long as I can keep finding good keywords, and pumping out sites at a decent pace, there really isn’t a roof on how much I can make…and if it takes building 100 sites(or thereabouts) to make $100/day, which is what its looking like now, I’d say that’s a good trade/off.

In other news, I created another adsense sniper and also did a bit of research into my top performing sites and took note of some keywords that were getting traffic that I could go back and make additional posts on to potentially get 2 pages ranking on page 1 and thus more traffic(indented rankings).ย  Whenever I can, I’ll write up one of these as an extra article for the day so I can start building up some additional content for these sites.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $22.84 – Authority Site #3 sale
  • Hops = 211
  • Adsense = $82.01

    How in the world do you keep track on what you have done to the different sites as far as SEO goes. That is one of my biggest stumbling blocks… Not having a system where I know what has been bookmarked, what pages have been targeted w/ backlinks from articles etc.

    You must have it down pat… Care to share?

    You are really in a good spot there… Imagine if all these sites were in a nice position on page 1….

    That is so awesome! More tips please haha. I think its really in the keywords you choose. It seems you can only really know the more you do. I am seeing increases (small but still something) as I go. It seems with time you will probably make way more than 100 a day with 100 sites.

    Great news about how this is really climbing now. If you add more pages with additional keywords do they come in as indented on page 1?

    Also I know you wrote about this somewhere but forgot where. I think you haven’t seen good results if you add a phrase after keyword like facts or sales.com etc in domain name right if you can’t get the exact phrase?

    Hey Mike….do you buy any domain names with dashes in case the exact match isn’t available? Meaning like cat-food.com or whatever… If so, do you find they rank as well and as fast as the non-dash domains?

    Thanks and great news on your rising income! Add outsourcing and you will really be flying.

    Thanks Susan :>


    Hey Evita, I have a system although it’s not the most organized one in the world, it works for me though…

    what I do is make an excel file and stick the names of all my sites I created in order of creation in the first column..

    The second column I made was to keep track of my initial 12 Ezine submissions…my first few sites would all get an initial 12 ezine submissions(12 backlinks to the main domain and 3 backlinks per inner page)…so I would list off whether I was at 3, 6, 9 or 12 in that column…although I haven’t been even using this column since I stopped doing Ezines.

    The next column over was for keeping track of an additional 3 Ezine submissions on top of the 12, I did this for a few sites…

    The following column after that is my “UAW” column. I list off if I’ve run UAW for the main page over there or not by writing down “1Run – MainPage(Nov 29th)” as an example.

    Following that I have a column called “UAW Inner Pages” where I write down if I’ve done UAW submissions for the inner pages.

    I’ve been labeling it “outsourced(1/2)650@40 = 16.25” which breaks down to me having outsourced the 1st 2 inner pages to be backlinked and they are being sent out to 650 article directories at 40/day which will take 16.25 days to complete..If I did another run for the last 2 pages I’d change the “1/2” to “2/2″…this is all stuff that makes sense to me, you gotta write up stuff in your own kind of code.

    Then, I have one more column after that called SENuke,t his was for backlinking to the inner pages. There I made up my own little code as well. I would write something like:

    SENuke 1.a(oct22)/1.b(oct23)/2.a(oct24)/2.b(oct25)

    …there are about 40 social network sites and I would break that down into 2 runs. Those two runs would be 1.a and 1.b when I’m building backlinks and those backlinks would go to my first 2 inner pages. As you can see, I’d list the date I did the run. Then after i’d do the same submissions broken up to the 3rd and 4th inner page.

    Now that was getting cluttered so I also made a seperate .txt file recently to keep track of which sites I’m going to be building additional pages for as well. I was going to make another excel file but instead just stuck it in a txt..

    I just put the main keyword of the site up followed by the inner pages that need to be written. Ex:

    Pianos For Sale
    pianos for sale (a 2nd article on the same keyword for indented rankings)
    for sale pianos
    piano sale
    piano chair

    and so on…

    Another thing I’d do is I might color code the first column in excel which is the name of my sites to signify something. Like just recently I color coded all the sites I was planning on submitting additional backlinks for green and the ones which I MIGHT build backlinks to yellow.

    What I’m doing is not the most organized way of doing things because I didn’t waste too much time trying to find the most efficient way to keep track of stuff, I just made sure I kept track of stuff as I needed it and this is how it turned out.

    Hope that helps.

    And ya, right now about 45-50% of my sites are on page 1, I don’t expect all my sites to get to page 1.. I don’t want to waste time flogging a dead horse, a site that doesn’t get to page 1(or even 2) within a week possibly 2 of putting it up is likely going to take far too much work, so I’m focused mostly on getting the few that wind up on page 1 off the bat to climb higher.


    Haha, sure Lisa, let me know what you want tips about and I’ll see if I can put something up.

    Ya, keyword selection is a crucial step in all this. There are a lot of little nuances I’ve picked up regarding keyword selection through massive amounts of practice..and the thing about that is the best way to explain that would be through showing you through example keywords.

    And ya, I think over time these sites will earn more, I just don’t like to count on that and just assess based on how things are NOW. A lot of my top performing sites are 3 months old though.


    Ya, if you want to say get a double index for your main kw, you can write up another article on it and there’s a chance they will. There’s an article written about this by Grizzly:


    He suggests linking the 2 similar inner pages together both ways, I’m sure that helps, I haven’t done it though.

    And when I can’t get the exact phrase, I move onto another keyword…that’s one of the main reasons how I’ve been getting 45% of my sites on page 1, I only go for exact match domains.

    When you add something else after the domain name, you’ll need to spend more time backlinking to get your site to rank for that kw..Exact match domains can rank on page 1 for me within a week, even though I’ve only done the basic RSS/Bookmarking/Digg submissions..

    Then the UAW submissions is basically for lifting those sites higher up on page 1.

    If you’re considering adding something to the end of your domain, then you should spend more time doing kw research as there are enough domains out there where you can snatch the exact match.


    Thanks Shelly :>


    Hey Jason, thanks man.

    I never go for dashed domains and never will pick one up..just like with adding words to the end of a domain, it will be harder to get it ranking, I prefer easy/guaranteed rankings.


    Hey thanks man,glad to help!

    And as a final note, the video up today is just, genius.

    It just occurred to me that I never actually commented on one of your posts before, even though I’ve been coming to your site for about 2 months now, haha! All I can say is… You’re amazing! Having $50 Adsense days and then the mile stone days like this far less than a year into it is insane!

    I’m definitely going to start building Adsense snipers soon, since Clickbank has been slowing down for me.

    One thing I always wondered though is if you do any CPA? I’m sure all of your niches aren’t suited for it, but do you run CPA offers in any of them?

    Congrats on the huge Adsense day, and good luck getting to the big 100 with Adsense soon!

    Thanks man, glad you left a msg :> Making money via adsense snipers is probably going to be easier for someone new to IM than trying to make some sales as you don’t have to worry about pre-selling anyone(although even that is not too hard to learn).

    In my experience though adsense snipers are more lucrative..

    I did do CPA this time last year, made $100/day on Youtube and another $100/day via classified ads sites, but that was not passive income and it was not the kind of way I wanted to make a living online, I wanted to setup something more stable and an income stream I didn’t have to worry about disappearing on me..

    I’m not going to stick CPA on any of my sites, waste of time, I keep my sites strictly to one purpose and if I want to make more money, I just make more sites rather than fiddle around with old sites.

    Excellent! Wow the hard work is really paying off! Sounds like the X Factor sniper model is really for you. It does seem like you just learn through experience about all the keywords etc. Something I am still struggling with!

    @Ruth – Web Career Girl

    Ya, once you get a hold of the keyword selection(through experience building sites and seeing what works and what doesn’t), then it just becomes a matter of pumping out the sites!

    I’ll see what I can do on a day where I have free time about keyword research, maybe go over a few example kw’s.

    @Peter (pacecom)

    Hey thanks Pete :>

    Hi Mike,

    Congrats on the amazing progress. You’ll soon hit the $100 per day mark. It is an awesome feeling! Your efforts are really starting to pay off!
