Day 255 – Adsense Sniper #134 & #135

January 15th, 2010


2 more adsense snipers done…

I spent today not only reviewing/editing and posting up the articles for these 2 sites, but I also spent some time doing more keyword research.Β  I didn’t find many new keywords for new sites, only 3, but I did find 32 inner pages to build for 1 of my sites and 16 for another.

Thought I’d mention that Scrapebox has an RSS pinger feature built into it, I’ve been using that lately in addition to RSS Bot and RSS Submit when submitting my RSS feeds..

Not much else to note today..

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops = 149
  • Adsense = $75.31

    Mike, have you noticed the alexa ranking for your site here?

    …man, that has gone to 40,000, which as you know is pretty great. You must be getting considerable traffic here. by comparison: Justin Brooks’ Site Fling is 47,000 alexa.

    That’s a great alexa ranking….

    Wondering what you’re gonna do once you reach 100+ in Adsense. πŸ™‚ I keep coming across sites like http://www.curtainsheers.net/Drapery.html and think about setting up affiliate sites like these except don’t know how to set this type of site up – use a script I guess?

    Anyway, seems like it would be a nice additional income if you pick the right affiliate products.

    Hello Mike,

    I was wondering where did you find a reliable and affordable hosting plan to host so many adsense sites. When I read those host reviews I always got confused. Do you have any experience with Godaddy or Hostgator? Thanks

    When I reach $100 in adsense I’m just going to make more money :> In actuality I’d need $5,000/month in order to make the 50k/year I’m looking for IF I intend on outsourcing at 1k/month…so my next goal would be to hit $150/day in adsense.

    Ya, Niche Devil can setup sites like that…although I’ve had a friend who went all out with that and wound up with sites de-indexed.

    You could always manually enter EBay/Amazon feeds into your sites.


    Hey Bob, I use Hostgator reseller accounts. Last Black Friday there was a deal, 75% off accounts, i got 2 reseller accounts $75 each for 1 year :> Before that I had 1 reseller at $25/month, so in a years time I’ll be spending $75/month…my thinking was that in a years time I’ll have developed so many web properties that that won’t seem like such a big fee…we’ll see..

    I don’t like Godaddy for domains, but I’ve had to use them after buying stuff off of the GoDaddy Auction. haven’t used them for hosting…but for domains, privacy protection is way too much.

    Which domain company are you using, and more importantly – how much do you pay per domain + privacy protection?

    Wow…. 40,000 Alexa ranking??

    I sure know how to hang out in the right places with the right company… πŸ˜‰

    Hey Jack, I’m using Namecheap right now…with a coupon I pay around $8.88 for each domain. The new domains have free privacy protection which I love and to renew it the following year w/ coupon it costs $0.99.

    Have you ever bought crummy domains…because you were staying up so late and the niche numbers looked too good to pass up…and then you wanted to shoot your right hand…and then thought, “What am I going to do with a tea party site with Adsense?”

    …there’s a guy I know…not me, of course, but this IDIOT neighbor named “Dave Jones,” we’ll say…

    Ol’ Dave bought a dozen or so domains that will SUCK according to the OCI rating (online commercial intent)…but man, they’re low-compete keywords.

    Question is: what would you tell “Dave” to do with these paid-for domains? Would you develop them and roll the dice, or “flip” and sell them?

    Sorry, just want to pick your brain. This Dave guy needs help…

  10. January 15th, 2010 at 19:50 | #10

    32 inner pages…what? I understand that’s a “sniper” site, but how BIG are these sites, man? On average?

    I just want to back up what Mike says, Namecheap is the best I’ve found for buying domains, and HostGator is the best for the kind of hosting we need. (I also have the $25 per month Reseller account – makes it easier to keep domains separate)

    AVOID GoDaddy like the plague if you can! Godaddy is notorious for holding your domain for “ransom” money if you get spam complaints (WHY the hell the domain registrar gets involved with that is beyond me.. it should be the hosting..) If you get spam complaints (happens if you run a mailing list, even with Aweber) they’ll shut off your domain, and say you have to pay them a $200 fee to get it back. I forget exactly what they say it’s for.. something like monitoring, or dealing with the complaints or something.. it’s rediculous.

    Beyond that, there web HOSTING is HORRIBLE as well. Why go to a domain registrar for hosting? Go to a hosting company for hosting. (that’s like going to a cake shop to have them make you a pizza)

    Namecheap = awesome
    HostGator = awesome

    I’ve used 1&1 for DNS, but JustHost for hosting. Love both, don’t know any different, but will be going with NameCheap if it’s private at that price. wow.

    Yo, Mike – I don’t feel like making any money tonight, so I’m sitting here thinking of ways to BUG the daylights out of you…

    Seriously, I did want to know what the difference was between UAW and SENuke? It seems they do the same thing, only UAW is server-based and charges a membership fee per month, and SENuke charges you once and puts the reigns in your hands. Seems like a no-brainer to me, but it seems you used both.

    Why do you use both, and what’s the diff?

    (getting back to Elance clients)

    @James H

    Haha, well “Dave’s” gone and got himself damn well screwed up now hasn’t he?

    Well, first of all forget OCI, if you’re building an adsense site you need to look at CPC in both the Google KW tool and Spyfu. If Spyfu shows the min value as at least $0.45 even $0.40, I’ll go for it..provided the first page of Google for that kw is as low comp as you say it is.

    So unless you’re absolutely sure these keywords are all crap, go ahead and develop them and find out for yourself first hand, that’s the only way you’ll truly know. At least develop a couple of them and assess your assumptions.

    The adsense snipers are 5 pages each, I’m building up some of them to make more money…

    And UAW and SENuke are totally different. UAW distributes to 500-1.5k article directory/blog sites per run and it submits spun content as well…at the end of a run you wind up with about 25-30 backlinks.

    SENuke is great for building lots of Web 2.0 sites, many people use it to go after super low comp keywords so that all the Web 2.0 sites can show up on pages 1,2 & 3 of Google and you can dominate the first few pages with your stuff.

    You can submit videos with it and submit RSS feeds too..In my experience, runs of SENuke have not resulted in as many backlinks, in fact out of 1 run, even though I submit to about 30-40 Web 2.0 sites I only end up with 1-2 visible links in Yahoo Backlinks. Although repeatedly running it over and over on the same site may produce better results.

    I’m gunna have to start charging you for these answers pretty soon..

    I’ll gladly pay you in flattery cred, all the way. Seriously, I’ll buy my stuff thru your aff links, no joke. I’m just trying to time it all, getting my Google check and want to re-invest that…but look for it.

    Do you have a SENuke aff link? I’m sold.

    @James H

    Hey James, if you’re looking to promote adsense sites, or even CB sniper sites, I’d strongly recommend going with UAW over SENuke..

    I’ve tried both(as you can see in my history) and I’ve seen much more success with UAW when it comes to getting backlinks and raising keyword authority. With 1 run of UAW I’d get an article spun and sent out to 500-1.5k sites and I’d get 25-30 backlinks, it is a staple in my site promotion…In comparison, with 1 run of SENuke out to 30-40 Web 2.0 sites, I would only wind up getting around 2 recorded links in Yahoo Backlinks..

  17. January 16th, 2010 at 04:39 | #17

    Thanks for the 411. Timing, man, timing! I’ll def take you up on it, I assume your aff link is in the button at the top of your site? I’m there, really. (when I get PAID that is…which will be sooner than not)
