Day 278 – 4 New Domains + BLS + Inner Page KW Research

February 7th, 2010

Best watched in the *highest* resolution…

Got a lot of miscellaneous stuff done today..

I first of all queued up 5 more Backlink Solutions runs which will build backlinks to 15 of my newer adsense snipers.  I also did some keyword research for the inner pages for the new sites I’m going to be building in the not too distant future..In searching for inner page keywords, I was able to find 4 new keywords to use as domains as well.

I did a lot of inner page keyword research following that and basically found keywords for 17-18(can’t remember) of my domains that I have yet to develop (that’s 68-72 inner page keywords found).

Once I get my current work back from my writers, I will have 21 new domains to outsource writing for…once that is all done, it will take me up to somewhere around 180 odd sites.

Once I get BLS out of the way, I’m planning on taking the plunge and doing some Scrapebox runs on my adsense snipers (rather than my CB snipers), will be interesting to see what happens there.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops =189
  • Adsense = $108.70
  • 1 XFactor Book Sale = $30.80 (Thank you :>)
  • Total = $139.50

    Hi Mike,

    Just checked in and tried to enroll in BLS using your affiliate link. The membership to BLS is closed. Any clues on when they intend to start allowing people in?

    Did you see some results already from the scrapebox runs? Bought it yesterday but haven’t started it yet. Will look at the proxy you recommanded as i have a lot of sites and those all are in need of some boosting.

    Hi Mike,

    Just wondering, how do you build your extra pages on your xsp sites? Do you use the silo feature?

    The time has come to ask for advice…before I found your blog I had already made my mind on building clickbank snipers. I have 44 snipers up and running but only 27 of them have been re-indexed (after initial launch) and are there to make money. the others are re-indexing and posts are starting to be found.

    Anyways, I get around 20-50 hops per day and I started launching these sites about the 2nd week of Jan ’10. My problem is that I need money pretty quickly. I’ve only made one sale so far and these sites can easily be converted to adsense snipers as they target specific keywords but not particular to any product.I have 14 of them on page 1 and they get decent traffic.

    Im just unsure whether I should take the plunge into adsense or sit these out to see what happens with clickbank, any suggestions would be great, thx

    Anyone using Hostgator? I’m experience some major issues atm. My websites aren’t working…

  6. February 7th, 2010 at 14:04 | #6

    CB snipers kinda work much worse than, say, CJ snipers, due to the nature of CB products. ebooks convert really bad comparing to real goods.

    Hey Mark, what you have to do is sign onto their mailing list…then, usually near the end of the month, maybe from the 20th on, they will send an e-mail saying that X amount of slots are now open and at that time you can join.


    Hey Edwin, well, as far as SEO results, IE: boosts in SE rankings, I have yet to see that..however by using SEO for Firefox to check my backlinks, on the sites I used Scrapebox on those shot up significantly as outlined in the last few posts.

    @Mark S

    Hey Mark, no, not the silo..it’s pretty easy.. I just click the “add page” button and it asks for the keywords, name of page, description..I enter that all in and it creates a blank page.

    I then copy and paste over one of my other pages to use as a base, then cut out the text and paste in the new text.

    @Kasey Langton

    If you convert your CB sites to adsense sites, you can’t expect them to be successful as they were not built to target good adsense keywords but rather a good CB keyword…

    When I built my CB snipers, I found that I had:

    -a bunch that got no sales
    -some that got 1 sale every other month
    -a bunch that got 1 sale every month
    -a bit less that got 2 sales a month
    -a few that got 3 sales a month

    I built 130 of them…although I really would only say I have 100 of them as 30 of them just totally bombed. But out of the 100, I ended up making 1-1.5k/month(this figure is down as of late for some reason as one of my products is no longer converting)

    If you need money quickly, you’re not going to see that happen with either CB snipers or Adsense snipers, you’re going to have to look into something else, potentially black hat.

    All I can tell you is that based on my experience of having made 100+ CB snipers and 100+ adsense snipers is that adsense snipers have turned out to be more lucrative and a much easier method to build up my income with.

    But again, you’re not going to see money quickly building adsense snipers. I went from $5/day in Sept to $60/day by the end of December working hard, many hours on my own, without outsourcing…I put up 100 sites and also ran UAW on all of them to get up to that level. If you want to make the same kind of money you’re going to have to do the same.

    But again, it’s not fast money…It’s easier to make money I find with adsense snipers than CB snipers though…if you were to go down this path I’d forget about trying to convert what you have over and just start fresh.


    Hey Jack, you should talk to the live help, they have good support there, they should be able to tell you whats going on…I have Hostgator and if an outage happens, it usually doesn’t last very long.

    Thats what I was thinking. When I say money quick I mean more like withing the next couple of months (which all i need for survival is 1500 month). Im going to finish launching my 30 domains I already have registered that target CB. So ill have a total of 70 or so that target CB then Im going to launch 60 amzon and see what happens there. I think that physical products will do much better considering what im targeting will be product specific and will also target items that are pricey retail but can get much cheaper online thru amzon. I can land page 2 fairly easy and within a week from being registered. And alot are starting to turn over to page 1 which is good. doesnt really seem to matter the comp as long as its under 500k in quotes then it seems to be green light and will hit page 1 either right away or after promotions.

    Thanks for your reply Mike, but how are you linking those new pages? You’re not putting up the standard xfactor links on the top menu bar are you?

    If so, are the pages only linked through the site map? Or do you use the right hand nav menu to link them?


  10. February 8th, 2010 at 02:34 | #10

    @Kasey Langton
    Alright, Kasey – I’m piqued. My sister in law wants to aff with Amazon, but I have no idea where to point her. I’m sticking with AdSense for a while, with the occasional product here and there.

    In any case, I’m wondering:

    1) recommendations on the software you’re using/site builder to do these amazon sites? How do they differ from Adsense creation, besides templates?

    2) I love your confidence, I’ve been hitting the top pages in the SERP’s too, but with only 3…wait 4 sites now (see, I’m doing it!)…I want to take notes from folks who know their stuff. What’s your method?

  11. February 8th, 2010 at 04:05 | #11

    @ Mike –

    Just used BMD first time today – way faster than the competition I’ve used (the wiz), but then again my computer’s an abacus…

    Anyhow, you fired me up, Mike. I got the one site up yesterday, UAW’d and EZA’d it, which material I hand-spun from a portion of my site, then BMD’d, RSS’d, Dugg it…now it’s on to the next. In 2-3 days, once I’m caught up on some deadlines, I’ll submit 1-2 more articles/pages, and my plan is to get it ranked, then apply for a physical aff product from CJ or similar – that seemed to work last time for a $400 or so boost on one of my sites.

    Thanks for the tips. I’m moving on to the next one.

    @Kasey Langton

    Well, I can only tell you that getting $1,500 in a couple of months with adsense snipers is very possible with 60-70 sites if you do your kw research right and promote them…I haven’t built amazon snipers so can’t really comment on that approach though..

    @Mark S

    I am putting links to inner pages under the title…I didn’t do it for a few of my sites as a test, but that test didn’t end up increasing CTR in any noticable way so I’m back to putting up the menu links.

    When I create additional pages in addition to the original 5, I do the same thing that XFactor mentions in his book when he creates additional posts.

    @James the Just

    Nice man, you making affiliate sites rather than adsense? When I do UAW runs, I like to do them for 2 sites at a time (1 article has 2 links in it that lead to 2 different sites).

    And ya, moving onto the next one is the right mentality, just keep pumping them out, a lot of people tend to get caught up in checking on their sites to see if they’re ranking or increasing in ranking etc..

    @Kasey Langton
    What do you mean by re-index / re-indexing?

  14. February 8th, 2010 at 08:53 | #14


    No, making Adsense sites, Xfactor style, BUT when I find a good physical product, high-ticket, on CJ, I promote it naturally. That’s where the extra $400 came in.

    Hey Mike, how is doing that working out for you? Are the additional pages getting hits? If so, is it from people clicking through to the “articles” page, or are they getting search engine traffic? Thanks!

    Thomas –

    Not to answer for Mike, but I have a crummy site – ranks in the top 30, emphasis on the 30…and the one or two pages that rank on page 1 of Google (and the only way it makes money) is from pages #7 and #9…(I went crazy on the topic, had my wife do most of the writing).

    Can’t speak for Mikeman, but it works for me.

    @ Will
    I launch my sites on a blank wordpress blog then wait for it to index into the search engines (this holds a better chance of not getting sandboxed). Once it indexes then I add content and wait for it to “re-index” with all the new content, aff links, etc.

  19. February 8th, 2010 at 23:41 | #19

    @Kasey Langton
    Just wondering why do you wait? Why not all at once? (Newbie of newbies here.)

  20. Mikeman
    February 9th, 2010 at 00:07 | #20


    Hey Thomas, last time I checked I hadn’t seen any new searches leading to the new pages…but I’m sure in time and with more backlinks it will help..

    And if anyone gets through to those pages, it’s going to be through either the inner page keyword ranking for the keyword its targeting, or for it ranking for long tail variations.

    @Kasey Langton

    Ya.. I’ve personally found after making 150 sites that the sandbox talk and holding off on adding adsense is a bunch of nonsense. I have always put up my adsense code as soon as the site goes up…some of my sites get indexed next day, others within 3 days, others 5-7 days at the latest…but no sandboxing occurs.

  21. Kasey Langton
    February 9th, 2010 at 00:29 | #21

    @ James the Just

    I wait because you can pass the sandbox filters much easier that way and also rank higher right away. In case you don’t know what sandboxing is…sometimes go0gle will NOT let a site rank well right away because they “sandbox” the site and you have to wait between 3 weeks to 6 months for them to trust you enough to let your site out and rank for keywords on your site. Although they will not admit to this, they also will not deny it. But after launching many sites and testing. I know it exists.

    So if you launch a wordpress blog with no content. There is nothing to sandbox. Just add it after you have been indexed and it does much better in the beginning. Just my opinion, and it’s only my opinion because of my personal testing and experiences. Others may have different results.

    @ Mikeman
    I think the big G is biased because of adsense. I have tried to do research on this and find out and although there are no solid answers. Many DO believe that if you have adsense on your site than you may rank higher and get more traffic.

    Again, im not sure but ive heard other people say this is a common occurance. For example, I saw a video from Joel Comm where he talks about when he was testing the Yahoo network and took off adsense from one of his sites, his traffic plummeted by half. Then he took yahoo off and added back adsense and his traffic started going back up.

    @ James the Just
    When I start with amzon, which will be in a few weeks. Ill be targeting product names as the domain name. I know this is all kinds of infringment possiblities but I launched a few of these in the past and never had a problem, so far and they have done well, thats why I have decided to go with amzon snipers. If amzon fails then I will hail to the almighty adsense.

    No recommendation on software, I build everything by hand using wordpress. Then promote my sites via RSS feeds and pingfm thats about it. I use RSSbot for RSS feeds, but I dont really do anything else. By optimizing my sites on the way I launch them it pretty much will get me to page 1 or top of page 2 right away when I add the content after indexing.

    If you follow Mikeman on what hes done with adsense im sure it will work with amzon but no one has done this yet (as far as we know), so its to be determined.

    Nicely stated, thanks for the tip and reply.

    February 9th, 2010 at 01:58 | #25

    @Kasey Langton

    Hey Kasey…if you make sites on product names you will eventually run into problems, it’s inevitable :/ I ran into trouble and since decided not to bother with those anymore since I’m at a point in my kw research where I can find other profitable non-brand name kw’s easy enough.

    BTW, when I put up my CB snipers, I also put up my content/aff links immediately and encountered no sandboxing..my sites were indexed within a week and many ranked first/second page off the bat..had great success with it.

  26. Kasey Langton
    February 9th, 2010 at 09:29 | #26

    @ Mikeman
    You seem to be lucky with that, sandboxing seems to be pretty popular nowadays. Maybe its the keywords im targeting? Not really sure but it happens enough to where i needed to start finding ways around it. Most of the time it only lasts for 3 weeks. But I have a few that have not appeared yet and its been over a month. In any case, I can pretty much get around it now.

    As far as product names, I know your probably right about running into problems at some point, but it may be some here some there. Ill be launching soooo many that I dont think it will make a huge impact when I lose one here and there. But again, Ill just have to test it and see how it goes.

    But my theory on it is…when people go shopping and find a pair of “name brand” jeans (just for example) in a retail shop and say whoa! those are way too expensive but i REALLY want them. Then they are going to come home and look them up online and type in that “brand name” to get a better deal. And thats where ill be at…waiting to capture that crowd and send them off to amzon where most likely it will be a lot cheaper than in retail.

  27. February 9th, 2010 at 10:01 | #27

    I have several sites that include a brandname and the only time i ran into trouble was when i had a domainname with the word Amazon in it. I heard that Sony seems to be always on the lookout for domain names with their name but for the rest i just register the domain and I do not worry that much. But my primairy niche research is not brand related.

    Altho I am the creator of an Amazon wordpress plugin I also focus on Adsense as I do find it nice to have an second source but i also find that looking at the stats I earn more with adsense per click then with Amazon.

    @ Edwin
    I think you’re right about that. There are some “big dogs” that keep an eye out. For example: Amazon, Sony, Apple, ebay, FICO <–yeah didnt know this was trademarked either but appearantly it is, and other companies that have a big internet presence seem to be the ones that keep an eye out. They actually have assigned people just to look out for this, its ludacris. But for other brands like coleman, anne klein, baby phat. These are more retail related and don’t have a big online presence. Most don’t even have a website for crying out loud. But anyways, more likely will slide under the radar.
