Day 226 – More Outsourcing Stuff

December 17th, 2009

Today I did just a bunch more outsourcing stuff.  I got back the results from a few more of my sites that were backlinked with backlinks similar to that of Angela’s.  I put those profile links into SENuke again to ping them all.

Other than that, I reposted my ad on ODesk as well as Get A Freelancer, I’m going to continue to do so until I get a hold of the people I’m looking for.  If I need to, I will go out looking for them and message them myself.

I just got back 4/5 of the outsourced articles I gave to one of my candidates.  The work she does is pretty good, and only requires that I make a few corrections to it that takes about 3 min or so…once the corrections are done, the article is just fine, informative and a clear read.  If all goes well, I’ll be getting around 35 articles outsourced each week from now on…

I bought up 3 additional domains today and also did some research on 7 of my keywords and came up with 4 inner pages for each of those, I plan on those being the first 35 pages that I outsource.

I’m also going to need to do some more keyword research soon as I’m pretty much at the end of my keyword list.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = 1 sale from this site = GS, $65.60 (thanks :>)
  • Hops = 146
  • Adsense = $68.39
  • Total = $133.99

    Mike,

    You should add the pinging to the outsourced tasks. When the bookmarker creates the link, have them ping the URL using ping-o-matic.com or pingler.com or feedping.com.

    Hey Mike,

    Sorry to ask this totally unrelated topic but are you generating your rss feeds through Xsitepro? The one that ends with .rss? We discussed about this I think a month ago but I’m not sure you actually did it.

    I’m asking because I noticed that I’m pinging these and submitting them to rss directories but I’m not getting the same results as those generated by WordPress.

    Hi Mike.

    Great to see your progress. Well done. Just goes to show that hard work and consistency is the key. Now with outsourcing, the sky’s the limit!

    I have a question about domain names… I was doing some keyword research yesterday and came across some tasty looking 3-4 word phrases which got lots of searches but had reasonably easy competition. The thing is, all these phrases had a brand name in them (e.g. Nike, Canon)

    I’ve read you should steer away from any domain name with a brand name in them (such as ‘bestNiketrainers.com’) because it’s likely you’ll get told to shut it down.

    Just wondered if any of your Adsense Snipers have brand names in them, or if you steer clear of this?

    @TheDebtHawk.com

    Ya, I suppose I could ask to have that done, right now it’s not too big a deal since I have SENuke.

    @jb

    Ya JB, there is an option in XSite Pro 2 to create your own feed. And you’ll get the same results as with WordPress blogs, an RSS feed is an RSS feed regardless of whether it’s done in WP or with XSite Pro..

    Additionally, I find there is no difference in how my sites rank with WordPress vs XSite Pro 2.

    You may want to try submitting with more than one RSS program, I use 3, SENuke + RSS Submit + RSS Bot.

    @Nick

    Hey thanks Nick, ya, I think things will get crazy pretty soon :>

    About going after brand names, if you build enough sites with brand names, you WILL encounter legal notices/cease and desist letters. For legal reasons I haven’t mentioned anything about this on my blog.

    If you get that notice it can be scary, but often times if you just take it down and be cooperative with them it ends there. It’s all about what you’re comfortable with.

    Hi Mike! great on finding a good potential Outsourcer!

    I haven’t noticed you mention WPMage in awhile. Have you tried using it at all yet???

    @Clefty

    Hey thanks Clefty, I seem to actually be overloaded with potential outsourcers! I just got 2 more to look into…

    I haven’t got any time yet to use WPMage, there’s only so many hours in the day and you can really only focus on so many things at a time.

    I’ve already committed $300 odd dollars on 20 or so domains(not to mention the cost of the course itself) so it is something that will HAVE to be developed…I will probably look into it once I get settled into my outsourcing routine.

    My main focus is making money with adsense though at this moment because I’m at a point where I know that with another 100 adsense snipers(which will happen a lot faster now) I WILL be at a full time income, no doubt about that!

    Hey Mike, how are you doing?
    One of my No.1 ranking sniper site suddenly disappeared yesterday, I couldn’t find it in the first 10 pages on Google. Any idea why this happened? What should I do to rank back my site?
    Thank you!

    @Shane

    Hey Shane, ya, that happens to new sites sometimes when you’re in the process of link building for it. This has happened countless times to me and what I’ve found is that it either returns back to where it was or at times it may return, but a bit lower than it was before.

    It’s called the “Google dance”..not much you can do about except keep building links towards it and keep building new sites. If you’re lucky it will come back in a weeks time.

    Spent hours reading through your archives — Really appreciate the no nonsense unhyped case study. I am implementing XFactor Sites, 3 up for 45 days and am upto my first $50 in adsense. I have put amazon product links on all my sites and even though I have sent lots of clicks there are no conversions on Amazon. Do you have any product links on your sites? I did not see any Amazon or Ebay income listed. Do you reccomend against it?

    @Dan

    Awesome man, no problem, glad you liked it and good job on your first $50! I haven’t been putting amazon or ebay on any of my adsense snipers.

    I wouldn’t recommend against it, but at this time I don’t currently add either to my adsense sites, doing so would detract from clicks on the adsense block as there are those who read/skim down to the bottom, then if they see nothing go back up and click the links..

    Yeah, but what I’ve experienced was weird. I built the site as exactly what google sniper told to do. Then I did absolutely nothing to promote the site. In about two weeks, it started to rank No.1 on google. And till yesterday, it had ranked No.1 for 3 months… So I wonder if I should do something to rank it back or just leave it at that to see if it will come back by itself.

    @Shane

    It happens, maybe someone else trying to optimize for the term dislodged your site…

    You really have 2 choices:

    1. Add more links to it in hopes of bringing it back and stabilize it.

    2. Do nothing and hope it comes back.

    If you really want it back, take option 1, the proactive option…other than that, just go on building more sites.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
