Day 273 – Adsense Sniper #151 & 152 + Scrapebox + Additional Pages

February 2nd, 2010

Hmm, had to remove this video, it was causing problems with IE loading, it’s here though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAePPynu5-w Lol @ 0:01 – 0:11

Today I put up 2 more adsense snipers as well as 10 extra pages for some of my existing sites…

Regarding my writers, 2 of them decided to drop out today…1 was a writer who had been lax in their submissions, for some time now, one that I was about to let go, the other one that I just had brought on.

I still have 2 new writers though, I’ll see how things turn out with them.

Aside from that, I’m still seeing some crazy results from Scrapebox:

Site #1 = 12 backlinks – 14 – 22 – 45 -105 – 136
Site #2 = 29 backlinks – 35 – 37 – 47 – 82 – 94
Site #3 = 17 backlinks – 18 – 20 – 20 – 43 – 52
Site #4 = 0 backlinks – 14 – 18 – 18 – 26 – 40
Site #5 = 1 backlink – 1 – 5 – 5 – 37 – 53

Not sure of the staying power of these links, we’ll have to wait on that, but this is still extremely impressive.. I’m thinking instead of doing a 2nd UAW run on some of my best performing sites, I may try doing Scrapebox runs…I’m still up in the air about it though, we’ll see, because I know for a fact that UAW will result in an increase in income, I’m still not sure about the end result of running Scrapebox will be…

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $25.48
  • Hops = 161
  • Adsense = $116.83
  • 1 XFactor SaleΒ  $30.80 – tnx man
  • 1 UAW sale = $26.80 Thanks :>
  • Total = $199.91 (damn almost $200..Still a record high earnings day!)

    Mike, homie is it midnight yet? If not, send me your PayPal because i’m putting 99c in your account damn it!

    Haha kudos, you rocked it in today that’s awesome indeed.

    Nice work on the backlinks also, so what’s that about 300-400 you have gained across your sites in a few days? Indeed Scrapebox rocks i’ve been making a killing with that tool, i got it at Christmas and it was hands down my best purchase of 2009 and believe me i pi$$ed a lot of money up the wall on all sorts of tool.

    I can’t believe the array of things it can do, being a blog commenter doesn’t even scratch the surface. Since using the Scrapebox, my ecommerce sites are making more money now than they did in the Christmas rush.

    Are you going to focus more on affiliate sales? You can make some impressive revenue once you get that rolling, especially if you can build up a list.

    Keep up the Awesome work, $200 tomorrow you can do it.

    P.S. You need a new photo for your blog, one smiling holding two $100 bills, when you break $300 switch it out for one holding three bills and so on. Haha!

    With the results you are seeing, are these links already showing up, or do you mean that the links are found when checking in Scrapebox? Also, do you only do 1 website per run?

    Hi Mike,

    This is my first comment here. I’ve been following your blog for the past few days now as I have also started churning out xfactor-clickbump adsense sites. After setting up four blogs, I have gotten my 1st dollar day. Not much but that’s only for 4 sites. I am inspired by your persistence and consistency and putting up your daily journal gives me that needed boost that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Keep it up and I am also planning to put up a blog to chronicle my adsense adventure. Soon!!!

    Great stuff Mike. I need to pull my finger out and start building some more sites. I only have 3 so far, bringing me around $70/month.

    The bit I really struggle with is finding keywords which don’t already have the domains taken (.com, .org., .net)

    I’m reluctant to put dashes between the words (would be interested if you use dashes sometimes and whether it has any negative impact), and as for tagging on extra words (info, deals, advice, reviews, etc…), sometimes those domain names end up being 30 characters long.

    Do you set a limit on the length of a domain name? Do you always only go for domains which match your keyword exactly, or do you append words?

    Damn, that mom in the video is hot! Kaseem is such a playa!

    Hey Mike, I had 2 quick questions.

    1) If the keyword I’m targeting is for example “Vegas Coupons” and the .com .net and .org are already registered then would I get the seo benefit by getting a “Vegas Coupon” .net or .org instead? Or should I just get a “Vegas Coupons blah blah” .net or .org?

    2) Would it be a good strategy for scrapebox by sending all the links to a web 2.0 property which then links back to your site? Seems it would protect your site if google ever wanted to ban it. Would you get the same link juice by using this strategy?

    Shoot, looks like scrapebox is giving xrumer a run for its money and much less expensive..I guess I’m just paranoid that a nerdy site owner recipient of the blog comment would report my site to google as spam.

    And to end my rant, you’re becoming an IM rockstar with all the people increasingly starting to follow you! It would be cool if you arranged a conference in Canada or U.S. for everyone to meetup who follow your site.

    Hey bro, congrats, this is awesome progress today. Say, what do you think about using those backlinking packages one can find on WF and BHW? Would it help?

    I don’t think running scrapebox can hurt your sites at all, in terms of rankings. The only time your site will get a penalty if its linking outward to “bad neighborhoods.” If you have spammy incoming links – at the worst, Google would simply devalue these links but not apply a penalty.

    The one disadvantage of using scrapebox is that it may draw unwanted attention from righteous webmasters who hate sites that are built for the purpose of advertising adsense/affiliate stuff/etc. I stopped trackback spamming, mass blog commenting, etc when I actually started to receive phone calls from the owners of these sites I was spamming links, referrer spamming, blog commenting, etc. A lot of the sites that get harvested are what’s called “honeypots” – they are built for the sole purpose of finding people who use those methods…and then they will do whatever they can to get your site penalized or de-indexed.

    Hey Mike,

    How has your reseller hosting been working out for you? Any noticeable downtine or suspensions? I’m just wondering because I’m currently on shared hosting and was wondering if it’s worth it to just go with reseller hosting to save me headaches in the future?

    Haha, thanks man. Good to hear you’re doing well with Scrapebox. I focused on affiliate sales with my CB Snipers…following adsense I’ll move into ebay sites, then I may pursue CPA, I probably won’t be back to CB for a while though…

    And ya, too busy these days to update the picture :p

    @my addict mind

    Hey man, good work getting your first dollar day, that will only continue to go up as you build more sites and become better at keyword selection. Glad the site’s been helpful :>


    Hey Nick, ya, answered that one in the read-me, I don’t bother with dashed domains, I just go for absolute matches to the keywords, I don’t even add words before or after the kw. It’s just easier to rank the websites that way.

    I don’t have any limits on how long the domain name should be, but its rare that I make a domain that is long…


    Hahha, ya, that was a good one.

    Regarding your first question, you CAN do that and I’ve seen that work for others, especially when the keyword isn’t very competitive. However, I personally don’t do it…there are enough keywords out there where you can get an exact match and I’d rather do less backlinking and have the ranking process be as easy as possible.

    And ya, it would definitely be a good strategy to bomb your Web 2.0 properties with links via Scrapebox, you wouldn’t have to hold back that way in fear of sandboxing your site.

    hah, a conference eh? I’m so used to providing stuff for free on my site, I’ve never thought about that.


    Thanks man…well, I tried outsourcing a bunch of those backlink packages if you check my past posts..however, I didn’t see any noticeable improvement from my efforts, so I didn’t continue doing them. That’s not to say they wouldn’t work out for you though, just that I didn’t see as good results doing that vs. say, UAW.


    Ya…Hmm, that’s a pretty crazy story..guess I’ll see what happens when I continue to use it..


    I’m glad that I got a reseller account. I got it a long time ago as Andrew Hansen had recommended getting one for anyone looking to build up a strong web presence/blog empire.

    It would have been a headache moving sites over from shared to reseller, so if you’re planning on making a living online or a sizable chunk of income, it’d be easier on you with a reseller account.

    Hi Mike, I might have missed it somewhere in your posts but what feature of Scrapebox are you using to create backlinks? Is it the auto comment part?

    @Mikael Rieck

    Hey Mikael, it’s the blog commenting…I’ve been auto submitting spun comments to WordPress blogs.

  12. February 3rd, 2010 at 05:27 | #12

    Thanks Mike. Then it is not for me. Then you’re actually one of the spammers I hate for taking up my time when I have to report them for spamming.

    It might work but it is definitely not an approach I would recommend to anyone.

    Like I said I would be, I’m back πŸ™‚
    Bought scrapebox as well. Basically I’ve been eyeing it for a while but you know how it is with window shopping, you have to pass by it a few times until you actually buy it πŸ™‚
    Anyway, it’s awesome! I’ve heard lots of talk about it being black hat, and yes, it can be used as that, it’s true. But as I’m focusing on white hat techniques for my websites, I am really finding it invaluable for finding me nice wordpress blogs with high PR to comment on. I’m commenting on manually, although the tool indeed gives you the option to do in ‘en masse’. Just found a nice edu blog related to my niche woohoo!

    Nice :> Ya…it’s all in how you use it.. I personally have no issues with BH stuff though. It’s a powerful tool for sure and way underpriced.
