    Hey mike, what about a one-click website builder that will produce all files. Then all you need to do is upload to your host and you’re done.

    Total time spent from filling out info to setting up website, less than 1 minute. Bwahaha, god I hate wordpress. I might automate using uBot though.

    Seems like your adsense income is slipping down. Do you have to keep pumping out sites and building backlinks to keep your income?

    Frank, get lost.

    What, why? I just asked the man a question! No need to be rude.

  5. Frank
    March 6th, 2010 at 09:59 | #5

    I simply meant that due to Mike having to move and spending less time on building backlinks it seems his adsense income is decreasing.

  6. March 6th, 2010 at 11:05 | #6

    Mike, just curious…have you tried the new link building service at the WF called Link Racer?

    I just signed up for it and am going to try it out.


  7. March 6th, 2010 at 11:06 | #7

    It happens, Frank. The pattern is simply build a bunch, then backlink, build a bunch, then backlink…

    It’s nothing to worry about. With AdSense, it fluctuates, no worries. The new bottom for Mike seems to be $100/day. Ceiling = ?

    When you do a comparison in business, you don’t compare Monday this week with Friday – you compare March 3, 2010 with March 3, 2009. Monthly totals, compared on an annual basis, is more a metric that makes sense. Micro-managing is going to waste time and cause sweaty palms…maybe even acne…fungus…or worse: being single.

    Ask Mike what he made last year at this time and re-think the question. Actually, he posted that about a week ago.

    On a MUCH higher plane – DID YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO??!

    OH MY. Representing Nor-Cali here, “That was Hella funny!”

    Yeah. I said it. It’s a 707 thing. You wouldn’t understand.

    BUT that was by far worth the price of admission – This guy is funny! Thanks, Mike.

    I’m glad I stumble across your site…you just motivated me to start my own journey to make $100/day by building AS.

    If you’re looking to build more backlinks with no cap…I’ve been using ArticleRanks for awhile now. Basically for $2, you submit spun articles to blogs on their network, you can set your article to be publish unlimited amount of times or as many unique blogs that are in their network.

    One of my articles has been published on 122 different blogs so far…to maximize AR, I submit spun articles on different categories to target more blogs within the network.

    Also AR has a built in spinner on their site. I also use Free Traffic System (which is free) to post my spun articles, but they limit 30 blogs per spun article. Those are just other option you can consider if you need more backlinks.

    Well anyways…you’ll see me more often on your blog now. Like I said I’ll be starting my own journey to $100/day! Time to research some keywords!

    Hey Mike,

    Plan on doing another Scrapebox run soon? Really interesting in seeing how the blog engine submissions and how it effects your rankings.

    this is gonna be a problem soon. I know because I have built at least 200 sites before. You may keep on maintaining that $100 per day but your expenses will keep on increasing since you registered a domain for it. Time to weed out non-performing sites.

  13. Al
    March 6th, 2010 at 21:52 | #13

    @shab I second this.

  14. March 6th, 2010 at 22:47 | #14

    Sorry, not sure I follow – do you mean the expenses related to re-upping the domains?

    hi,mike , my xfactor site ctr is always 3% or so ,my theme is clickmp’s wordpress theme. why my ctr is very low .but xfactor and ClickBump says their theme is at least 20%,i am frustrated…

  16. March 7th, 2010 at 00:03 | #16

    I’ve had days where mine has been 100%…with 1-2 clicks on that channel…others where it’s 0, everything in between. How many sites would you need to build to see money at that rate?…

    hey hey hey, let Mikeman do his thing, theres plenty of comments where people try to “suggest” on what Mikeman should do, Ive even suggested a few things…but the point is, he doesnt just make 100 a day. with the cb snipers theres been more than a few times he has hit over $200 in a day. how many here can say that?? Im sure Mikeman has thought about every angle and his options…and hes been successful and has provided the public his failures AND success. Why start weeding out sites? You never know that 6 months or even a year later a “non-performing” site could hit it big and pull its own weight plus more.

    Why do i say this? because I have plenty of non-performing as im sure we all do. and i was going to start deleting them BUT good thing i didnt because one of them came out and started getting noticed and it went from 100 uniques a month to pushing 10,000 uniques a month.

    @Kasey Langton Early in the game Mikeman reported about few of his sites being “sandbox’ed”. What I meant with my comment earlier is it’s better if we all just build new sites properly instead of worrying about how to get the old sites out of the invisible “sandbox”.

    It’s just more productive, dontchu think?

  19. March 7th, 2010 at 00:27 | #19

    @Kasey Langton
    holy cow turd, batman! 10k, huh? Nice, dude.

    March 7th, 2010 at 01:00 | #20

    @ Al
    no doubt, the sandbox is a wicked hating machine

    @ James the Just
    yeah its crazy, its kinda like when you get your first site on page 1 and your like, ok now what? im kinda like that with this site, got on page 1 and getting about 10k uniques and almost 20k page loads a month and im like now what? how do i make serious cash off this thing…lol, been trying different solutions.

  21. Al
    March 7th, 2010 at 01:11 | #21

    Not much, the big players use tools for everything.

    I’m about to launch 300 adsense snipers next month using a personal custom CMS so we’ll see what’s up with that.

    Mikeman’s UAW advise sure did help though. I needed a systematic approach, especially when dealing with 300+ sites and UAW seems to cover this.

    Do one blast per site, wait a month see where the sites rank, do one more if necessary.

    KL, sorry, I was referring to your earlier comment, just realized I don’t make any sense LOL.

    @ Al
    300 adsense snipers eh? just so happens im doing that same number but will be doing amazon sniper. ill be starting mine next week. all hand built except for the wp-robot which will post after my main post that ill make a sticky. this might be interesting…looks like good stuff is going to happen and hopefully be posted in the next couple months.

    March 7th, 2010 at 06:29 | #24

    Sorry if I missed this Mike, but how do you select your keywords for the additional 4 content pages around your main keyword?

  25. Mikeman
    March 7th, 2010 at 11:28 | #25


    Anything to further automate the process would be good, sure.


    Hey Frank, ya, I pretty much answered that in the comments for today(Sunday) in the following post. I haven’t had time to implement the backlinking portion of my plan…when my system is running smoothly though, there is a constant increase in my income though.

    @Chris Hunter

    Hmm, haven’t heard of that, I don’t really go to the WF much..

    @James the Just on Elance


    Haha, ya great vid :>

    And DC, welcome… and thanks for sharing


    Hey Dave, no plans on doing Scrapebox anytime soon, only massive UAW runs and possibly Ezine submissions.


    Problem? There’s no problems.. I have over 400 domains, I assess whether to keep each one on the month that they are to expire. This month I have 10 Clickbank snipers I made last year I need to assess.

    Worst case scenario, 200 adsense websites generate 3k/month… to maintain that is roughly 2k/year. 2k/year for 36k/year? Good trade-off.


    Hey Cilly, it’s possible you picked a bad niche where the conversions are low…it’s also possible that you have other sites using adsense that aren’t adsense snipers that are dragging the CTR down..

    If the second isn’t the problem though, it’s the niche, and you need to just keep pumping out sites in different niches, you’ll eventually find those that yield the 20-30%+ click through rates. low CTR are not the norm though, that’s for sure, just keep at it.

    @Kasey Langton

    Nice man on that 10k uniques, that’s a crazy improvement!


    Glad that helped …


    Ya, I did cover this before somewhere, I select them in the same way I look for my domain name keyword….If I can’t find those types of low competition keywords though, I just get a bit more lax and rather than looking for 2-3 PR N/A’s or 0’s, I look for only 1..

    Eventually if I absolutely can’t find anything good, I just pick out whatever keywords, regardless of the competition. If the competition is really looking bad, I’ll never expect it to rank, I’ll just hope that page will generate some extra long tail traffic (ex: if I make the page “automobile insurance”, I’ll hope that I can generate some traffic to my site not for that keyword specifically, but long tail variations like “automobile insurance online” or “automobile insurance quotes” etc..)

    March 7th, 2010 at 12:53 | #26

    @ Mikeman
    thx, its only for one site though, but seeing all that traffic…i have no idea what to do with it. I just so happened to get on first page for a pretty lucrative keyword and Im #9 on the front page, i couldnt imagine if I was up higher what it would do. But i just checked my stats and already have over 4k uniques for this site for the month. traffic will double the 10k at end of month at this rate. its averaging between 700-900 uniques a day! finally came out of the “.03 cent click” on adsense and this site made me $20 by itself yesterday.

    @Kasey Langton

    Nice man, congrats on that! Ya, I’ve found although you will have top earners(which this seems like it might become for you) that consistently earn well, at times they may dip down…part of the game.

  28. Kasey Langton
    March 7th, 2010 at 13:05 | #28

    Gotcha…Ill keep that in mind and try not to get frustrated, thx. im about to launch these amzon snipers as ive mentioned several times before, but im pretty hopped up about it. the first batch will get launched on either wed or thurs. ive almost got ALL my keywords found for the 300 sites. I lack about 50 to find which is what im doing right now.

    James the Just on Elance :
    Sorry, not sure I follow – do you mean the expenses related to re-upping the domains?

    yup. renewing a domain can be a pain and tracking each domains performance is even more painful if you do it yourself. For those are who are registering hundreds ofdomains, I suggest signing up for Godaddys Domain Discount Club.

  30. Kasey Langton
    March 8th, 2010 at 10:27 | #30

    its really not that difficult, in godaddy domain manager you can sort your domains by renew date. so when you do this you can clearly see whats coming up for renewal and at this point you can check each domain for that month its up for renewal and see if its worth keeping up…but i figure if its made more than 10 bucks for the ENTIRE year then its worth keeping as its brought in ROI…i used to make things difficult which would only frustrate me, but take a few steps back and look at the entire picture, internet marketing is actually quite simple.

    low CTR are not the norm though, thatโ€™s for sure, just keep at it.

    I CANT understand you , what niche has high ctr? is it merely product niche by micro niche finder ?
