Day 286 – Outsourced 20 UAW Articles To Human Rewriter + $200 Pt.III

February 15th, 2010

HAHAHA! This is great..

Today I decided to get a bit of backlinking done so I went ahead and outsourced the backlinking for the last 40 of my sites by outsourcing my UAW submissions to Human Rewriter.

I deposited $650 in there (and got a bonus of 115 credits) as my current balance was only at $8…After doing all the submissions,Β  I’m now down to $567…so that’s about $206 for 60 outsourced articles.Β  I could have kept the cost lower by being more selective in my articles, but that’s a pretty good price considering the avg article was around 380 words.

I noticed while in there that I also had $46.80 in affiliate commissions there for the month (thanks :>) , not sure when that happened as I usually check that once or twice a month.

In addition to this, today I also spent a bit of time doing keyword research and found myself 4 new keywords.

I’m looking forward to seeing a jump in income once I submit all of these UAW articles…

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $89.87 – 2 CB sniper sales + 1 sale for authority site #1
  • Hops = 161
  • Adsense = $114.98
  • 1 XFactor Sale = $30.80 (thank you :>)
  • Total = $235.65Β  – My highest day yet!

    Hey first of all congrats for yesterday’s income!! I am sure that it will take a spike after all those UAW submissions.

    I have a couple of questions again.

    I currently have started the interviewing process and have a couple people writing articles for me for the trial project. My question is once they get back with you and you choose the one that you want to work with; do you pay your VA’s after they complete all their work for the month or after every assignment that you send them?

    I am trying to get this all organized to make this transition as smooth as possible. Right now I am only planning on hiring one person that can help me write more content. Hopefully it won’t be too long before I am able to hire another one.

    Thanks again for taking the time to respond as you always do..

    I signed up on BLS and also requested Chad to send in my comms to you because of the help you have provided to everyone that is following you. I am really not sure if you gotten it or not. Signed up on Satuday.

    Hi Mike,

    Congrats!!! I have been following along like everyone else and your success is inspiring. But what would you suggest a plan of action for someone like me that only had about $200 to spend per month? I have a resellers account with hostgator so that would leave me with $175. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    After the post yesterday I remembered that I had hired someone to do a UAW run on one of my sites (over a year ago), yet I have almost no backlinks from it. Is this normal?

    I’d like to try UAW again on another site and had a question for others who use it. Is a particular format and word count needed? I just had an ~375 word article rewritten twice on Human Rewriter (so 3 versions total)- could I use that?

    If anyone has a post with recommendations on using UAW, please let me know. I’ll try to search Mike’s archives.

    Carrie –

    Newbie me here, just wanted to say that for the UAW runs I’ve done, I get backlinks every time – but I think it may simply be a question of “how niched are you” – panning back a bit and submitting to a related but more broad category might help.

    I’d also ask, on the next run, that you get the submission reports as proof of submission – they come every so many days.

    The format is simply to break it up into smaller paragraphs, have about 250 words and up, and re-write the original if it is published elsewhere – I wouldn’t run a public article thru UAW for anything – even if it’s spin-tagged. So, if your first article is already published, re-write it.

    If you have 3 unique articles, I can submit it for you for nothing, give you my 2 cents for what it’s worth, and re-write your titles/resource boxes. Let’s see what went wrong. BUT I understand if you don’t want to do so, in order to protect your interests. No worries either way.

    @ MikeMan: Rock on, man! Love your numbers. Your success is addicting.

    And I don’t want a flood of freebie requests from everyone…sorry. Unless your MikeMan. Then I’d do you a freebie. Once. πŸ™‚

  6. February 15th, 2010 at 13:43 | #6

    Oh, if you’re going to spin your articles/titles/resource boxes, the format is:

    {word or phrase 1|word or phrase 2|word or phrase you get the pic}

    FInally, to get the MOST out of your UAW submissions, it really helps if you understand their keyword funnel.

    That is, they ask that you start of niche-specific: “Android Apps” and then get broader as you continue, so you have 15 keywords in the funnel, from niched – broadest category.

    In doing my own submissions and also for clients, I’ve played with the submission keyword system and have noticed a change from 400 directories on up to 800 or more, simply because of the algorithm they use.

    It has to be done precisely, and the submitter needs to have experience dealing with various article directory submissions to really have a clue. Otherwise you lose dozens-hundreds of possible backlinks.

    Hope that helps.

  7. February 15th, 2010 at 13:46 | #7

    Sorry, that should have read, “Otherwise you lose dozens-hundreds of possible (SUBMISSIONS).” NOT backlinks! MikeMan has said here before that he gets 25-35 or so backlinks from UAW runs. On a freak accident of good luck or God simply smiling on me, I did my first run on one site and got 300 backlinks. Actually, I had about 50-60 already, so 240 or so backlinks, from one article. Yikes. Don’t ask me. Couldn’t repeat it if I tried.

  8. February 15th, 2010 at 14:01 | #8

    Thanks James, that helps. I do only have 2 unique versions as the original was already submitted to EZA. I guess I need one more rewrite.

    As to the rest of what you said it went over my head. So maybe I do need someone with experience to do the submissions for me. At the moment I don’t have enough sites to warrant buying the programs myself.

    Looks like your CB sales are back up. And still the hops are averaging about the same. Maybe Jan was just a slow month for CB. I noticed a lot of posting about CB sales down on WF last month.

    My Daily Sales Snapshot in CB is starting to get filled with numbers from having sales everyday instead of all 0’s like it used to be.

    Hey Mike,

    What do you use to track clicks? I use Google Analytics linked to my Adsense account which tells me which keywords users arrived on my site and clicked ads. But i’ve hit the limit to the number of sites i can add to a single Analystics account.

    Do you use anything to track which keywords produced clicks?

  12. Mace
    February 15th, 2010 at 16:16 | #12

    @Chris – statcounter.com can track that stuff for you. It’s free and keeps prying googly eyes away from your sniper empire.

  13. February 15th, 2010 at 20:20 | #13

    Thanks, Mace! (Though I didn’t ask the question, I’ve been looking for ways to analyze apart from the WP Wassup plugin, and the G analytics.

    @ Carrie: Which part went over your head?

    “Spin Tags” are simple syntax that tell a program like the UAW software (which is SAAS, or Software As A Service, it’s a monthly fee of $67) to do synonym substitutions.

    In UAW, you use the Jet Spinner syntax, which is:

    Original: See James run.
    Spin-tagged: {See|Watch|Look at|Check this out! I thought I saw} {James|Tom|Dick|Larry|Obama} {run|fly|take a flying leap|eat crow pie|ride a bike}.

    A simpler illustration would be:

    {See|Watch} James run.

    If I was confusing on the keyword funnel, it’s a specific thing to the UAW. Basically they submit your article to up to 1500 directories, and the amount of directories submitted to depends on the keywords and categories you’re trying to write about.

    Many directories only publish certain topics, so that’s why they have a funneling system. You can get more play the broader you cast your articles, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’ll lose a hundred or so opportunities.

    If there is anything else, let just let me know, I posted a comment or two on your blog so you can reach me thru that email.

    In any event, if it’s just one re-write, then either re-write it and give it to me, I’ll submit it (write 3 resource boxes, I’ll make you some more in the UAW), and we’ll get it going.

    If you need a rewrite for that one 375 ish article, shoot it over and no prob this time around, unless the topic is nuclear physics, I don’t have a problem running that batch thru for you.

  14. February 15th, 2010 at 20:32 | #14


    Carrie – I’ve only had a couple of UAW articles done and I noticed it wasn’t much help if your article was very niche specific. The problem is that there probably won’t be very many people who sign up to get the articles who will want to publish yours if it’s not relevant to their site. You can submit all you want but if no one publishes it, it doesn’t make a difference. I got better results when I wrote a more generic article (like Xfactor talks about).

    @James the Just

    James, I was not able to figure this out from the UAW sales page. Do they just submit to article directories, or do they have a network of blogs too?

    As for the article directories, are they all directories with the article dashboard engine? I have a program that submits to ~700 article directories and am wondering if UAW simply does the same thing.

  16. February 15th, 2010 at 20:56 | #16

    @James the Just
    Yeah, the funnel part went over my head but I suspected it was a UAW specific thing. Thanks for explaining it more, it makes sense now.

    @Sara – that makes sense. My first run was niche-specific, but not a rare niche.

    Hey thanks Susan..I pay them after they complete each project..so for the 5 article trial, they get paid for those 5 articles when they’re done…then after that I get 35 articles/week from them(if they do it on time)…once those 35 articles are done, I send payment via Paypal.


    Oh thanks bud, ya… I did get a BLS commission on Saturday, that must have been it :>


    Hey thanks Joseph..It’s hard for me to say what you should do as I don’t know where you are in terms of your IM experience and understanding..

    If I were in your place, I would use that money for domain name registrations…I would be focused on pumping out as many sniper sites as possible.

    Depending on where you register your domains, that will allow you to get about 20-25 domains/month.

    Once you’ve got about 30-50 domains set up, I’d then look into getting Unique Article Wizard to promote all your sites..in the meantime I would promote them via submissions to article directories, primarily Ezine Articles.


    Hey Carrie, ya, you could use that 375 word article re-written twice for UAW.. I always make sure my articles are at least 7 paragraphs and 350-400 words before submitting via UAW. 7 Paragraphs will ensure you get a good amount of uniqueness in the article submissions, 6 is too few.

    And Carrie, I’m not sure how many sites you have, but if you don’t feel you have enough I would focus on pumping out more sites rather than doing UAW submissions as you see the best results when you do UAW submissions to your sites in bulk.

    Get a good 30-50 sites out there then re-visit UAW. Also, UAW is something you don’t want to have someone else doing as when someone else is submitting for you, you will not get as wide a distribution. The more categories you specify your article should go out to, the wider your distribution..you can’t count on someone else setting up a wide distribution for you as finding a bunch of categories takes time (searching through the catlist.txt file referenced in the UAW help).

    @Kasey Langton

    Thanks for the info Kasey, I rarely check there…ya, today is good too, if other people had issues in Jan then I would hope that was what was wrong all along!


    Hey Chris, I also use Google Analytics and I also hit the limit, several times :> I have several Google Analytics accounts.

    And what Mace suggested is good, I’m thinking of switching to Statcounter for some of my newer sites.

    @James the Just

    Thanks for jumping in James.


    Ya, thanks for sharing that insight Sara.


    So Carrie, the way to get around that would be to submit an article on something more general as Sara said…

    Ex: If your niche is “cat towers”, do a UAW article on a generic pet keyword like “Pet Training”.


    It submits to blogs and article directories..

  18. February 15th, 2010 at 22:15 | #18


    Great questions. I’m glad MikeMan answered, and I AM SORRY for hi-jacking the blog!!


    Really, I’m not trying to. I just have NO ONE ELSE to talk to about this stuff, my wife is officially rolling her eyes at me when I open my mouth since I’m one-track minded…and that one-track has jumped tracks to AdSense, UAW and IM topics…hm.

    So, MikeMan, sorry – I just love the UAW, and love that it’s saved me so much time. I’d buy it again thru ur aff link, which I already did, but that thing cooks with gas.

    I had NO idea it submitted to blogs – never paid that close attn.

    Glad MikeMan’s an analyst at heart. πŸ™‚

    Have a question, ponder and answer at your leisure:

    I have found a certain IP address across ALL my sites, the referral site is “go0gle.alert” which is now “G!ga” alert…which it turns out can be a spy site.

    I’m now considering changing the game plan, being more anonymous. I’ve seen that my backlinks all go thru my EZA acct, of course, and I think it’s pretty simple to find all my sites thru EZA.

    Recommendations, or should I care?

    Just wondering, as I’m so green at this still.

  20. February 15th, 2010 at 23:24 | #20

    clarification, I have found the same IP address across all my niches because I use WP’s “WASSUP” plugin.

    @James the Just

    Well, it’s good to work to protect your niches, if you don’t start properly when you’re new, you’re screwed, as you will interlink all your sites via backlinking.

    That being said..if someone is crafty enough, it doesn’t matter what you do,as they have 1 little bread crum(1 of your sites) and a lot of time on their hands, there’s a good chance they can find the rest(or at least a large chunk of your other sites).

    I won’t get into the ways in which that is possible…but dividing up your Ezine submissions into several accounts can only help …

  22. February 16th, 2010 at 08:41 | #22


    I mean, thanks.
