Day 26 – Keyword Reserach

A while back I created 4 websites in the main sniper site niche that were directly targeting products in the niche…(IE: Productname.org)..They are now all indexed by Google, but for some reason, 3 out of 4 of them are nowhere to be seen on the first few pages of Google…I only found one of them and it’s on page 2, #3…

So rather then spend my time running UAW on them, I decided to skip them and just move on..

I’ve decided on the new niche I’m going to be going into, however there are a few products I can promote here, so I still need to decide on which one is the best.

I spent some time today doing more keyword research, seeing if I can find some gems.  I want to spend a bit more time doing keyword research this time around as I want to ensure that I get the most out of my sniper sites, I want to avoid situations where I get tons of hops and few sales.  So the next little bit I’ll be spending time looking for the best keywords I can find.

I found a couple of good ones, I found 2 that have 5.4k searches for exact match according to the Google Keyword Tool, I found 4 that have 4.4k searches for exact and then another 5 or 6 ranging from 1.3k – 3.6k searches for exact match.

I didn’t pay attention to phrase or broad match as from experience, I’ve found exact match to be the best determinant of traffic potential.

A funny thing happened while I was doing my keyword research, I came across someone’s blog done in the NB format, with Adsense and Kontera on it, except it was done in the form of a Sniper Site :>

I’m going to continue my keyword research until I can find maybe 15-20 really good keywords in this niche to go after, then once I decide on a product to promote, I’ll begin creating sniper sites again.

Earnings For Today:

  • $36.59 = 1 Sale for Site #1 – $19.98 & 1 Sale for the main sniper site niche for $16.61 (note: I’m promoting 2 different products in my main sniper site niche, this is the other product which I had not received a sale for up until today.  It took 558 hops to get that 1 sale since the 14th of this month!
  • Adsense = $4.44

    I don’t think I’ve ever come across a NB site…but who knows. I think there are many of us who are combining all of the knowledge we have and turning out sites that way :)

    I’ve run across both NB sites and sniper sites during my research. Guess it’s really a small world on the Internet afterall :)

    I have a few combination NB & Sniper sites. LOL

    I seem to stumble on NB sites all the time and it seems like most of these sites use the Super Adsense theme – it’s a dead give away.

    If you want to see what a bunch of NB’s are blogging about google: “Provided By My Debt Free Goal”

    LOL I took that off of mine when I used the theme!

    Thanks Deb..

    I’m also surprised through my keyword research how many people make Sniper Sites(most are probably people who haven’t read George’s book)…

    The majority of them that I find look like they were put together in 1 day..then there are those that are turned into authority sites.

    That’s very sneaky Shelly, ya, I always get rid of any outbound links in the footer.

    Looks like my site appears for that search too now for your comment :>

    Yeah, I think when your purchase your themes it IS a bit sneaky to make everyone link back to you…

    If you check the backlinks to “my debt free goal” you’ll find a LOT of blogs… you can actually see what everyone else is doing….lol…

    I removed those links pronto ;-)

    Just wanted to report that this month I broke the $500 mark with adsense :) Woo-Hoo!

    Have also decided to keep my eyes peeled on sniper type sites for adsense. Why not, right?

    @Evita

    Nice Evita!

    Ya, there are quite a few sniper sites created for Adsense out there(They’re sniper sites in the sense that they’re trying to pull traffic by making their domain name the same as the keyword they’re targeting…I suppose you could also call them mini-sites)

    I was wondering if anyone uses this site when choosing clickbank product to promote:

    cb-analytics DOT com

    Evita – Awesome Adsense earnings! Congrats! I’d like to make some sniper type sites for adsense too. :-D If I ever get the articles I ordered from Cyberhub I may just do this.

    I noticed My Debt Free Goal has a PR of 0 despite all those backlinks. I wonder why?

    Maybe she got the backlinks to fast?

    Mike – I think my comment is in your spam? I was wonder if you used this certain site to figure out what clickbank product to use but I don’t see the comment here.

    @Shelly
    Sorry about the posts getting caught in spam…I haven’t even been checking that folder, I’ll start checking that daily now…I just approved the post.

    BTW, that http://www.cb-analytics.com site is pretty interesting, I’ve always used cbengine.com
