Day 306 – Adsense Sniper #189

March 7th, 2010

Another day and another adsense sniper is up..

I haven’t had the time to look at all of the comments, but I did notice some mention of income dropping and needing to do maintenance.  All fluctuations as of late have been due to eCPM which I cannot divulge…My average so far this month is a little over $100, which is down a bit from the $109/day it was a bit further back.

But as far as the whole backlinking for “maintenance”, I’ve already spoken about what my stance is on that.  My focus is ALWAYS on growth…never maintenance.  If you want to make it in this business, you can’t think in terms of maintenance…maintenance = stagnation.  When you focus on continuous growth, your “maintenance” takes care of itself…your income will just continue to go up and up.

I haven’t been able to do my regular backlinking due to being busy, hence things are not progressing as they would otherwise.

I had planned to backlink up all my new sites with 1 run of UAW and all my top sites with yet another run of UAW…After doing that, my income should shoot up big time, it’s just a matter of  me getting back to business as usual which hopefully should be soon..

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $69.70 – 2 CB Sniper sales + 1 Authority Site #3 sale
  • Hops = 214
  • Adsense = $84.14 (bit on the low side for me)
  • Total = $153.84

    Hi Mike,

    You mentioned that your stagnant income is due to ecpm, and that maintenance equals stagnation.

    What I would like to know is if your impressions have been constantly on the move upwards?

    I’m just wondering about your strategy because in the last 60-70 websites you’ve launched, the income has not moved up. Are you sure it’s due to ecpm fluctuations, and not traffic?

    Just curious..

    ^^Second the above. Mike, you are defo very strong willed but I am just not buying your maintenance argument. What you call maintenance is actually growth. Building links, adding content and going up the SERPs is growth, NOT maintenance.

    You will do much better IMO getting your sites in the top fold , ideally in the top 3 for the main/inner pages than building site after site with no “maintenance”. Honestly , my advice would be to stop building site after site and go back to your oldest sites and work on SEO and go through them all. I do about 50-60/day with only 5 sites that I have worked on part time for the past 3-4 months.

    Still, can’t fault your work ethic. you are much more hard working than me but I think you have got into a daily routine/pattern which you are unwilling to change on some level because it is somewhat in your comfort zone.

    I agree with you man. Keep growing!! If you don’t grow, you die.
    UAW runs will straighten out your income. You’ve proven that.

    You have developed a system that works. We’ve all read along as you continue to increase productivity and improve the system by removing inefficiencies. That’s a surefire sign of success.

    Going back and spending precious time on SEO for sites that may or may not ever rank well just isn’t an efficient use of time. Especially when you know exactly what to do to continue being successful.

    Imagine the VRE you’ll have when you’re done. Even if/when adsense goes away you’ll be able monetize the sites easily.

    @Mark S

    All other variables have remained the same, eCPM is what has been fluctuating. And no, it is not traffic.

    I explained what I’m doing the other day..I’m busy moving into a new place and don’t have time to do backlinking, hence I’m making sure the limited time I do have is as productive as possible, and the easiest way for me to do that is by putting up new websites.

    I’m repeating myself again here…I’ve explained the other day that you only see marginal increases in income by posting up sites, all major increases in income come about through backlinking. The reason for no increase in income is because I don’t have time to backlink(a part of my strategy which has yet to be implemented on the last batch of sites).


    Don’t know what you’re talking about Jim, I don’t believe in “maintenance” and there is no argument, this is how I do things.

    I don’t do the whole maintenance thing as I explained, I focus on GROWTH and the “maintenance” takes care of itself.

    There’s nothing you’ve mentioned that I’m not already aware of, you need to understand again, that I have my set strategy and I know what works because I know what I’m doing… I am not looking for any outside input, I am only re-executing what I did to get to $10/day, $20/day, $30/day etc.. over and over and chronicling it on this site.

    As I explained before, I don’t have time to do the backlinking component of my system with the limited amount of time I have right now, hence the deferred increase in income. I mentioned before that once I’m fully moved in I will start a backlinking campaign to boost my income up.

    My regular strategy is to run UAW every 30 odd sites…I’m now up to 50 odd sites that have yet to be backlinked, so I am behind on my own strategy, the thing is, it is INTENTIONAL. I am purposely not focusing on backlinking/growing my income at this point as it would take too much time out of my schedule right now to backlink.. the best way for me to be productive at this point is to just put up sites(which takes little time) and keep my writers busy as no matter what, I’m looking to put up close to 400 sites.


    Thanks Slash…again, the reason for not focusing on SEO/Backlinks is due to not having time.

    And ya, In the time I have, I’m focusing on building my real estate..every site though will eventually enter into my system of running UAW once or twice(for the older sites).

    @ MikeMan –

    Right on, thanks again for pounding it home. I’d share my two cents, but they seem to be what you said… 🙂

    Seriously, I have no clue what I’m doing, so glad I can come here and read what works from someone who’s out of the “theory” box and into real-world practicum.

    Later. Well done as usual.

    Ah ..if that’s the case, cool Mike. Thanks for clearing it up.

    Some of us haven’t been reading your back logs so we’re not sure exactly what’s going on here. But it’s good to know.

    Hey Mike, how many UAW did you use to release per day? Was it about 30 / day?

    @James the Just on Elance

    tnx James

    @Mark S

    Hey Mike,

    Congratulations on the condo and all you’ve accomplished. I think maybe some people are unsure of how you use the terms maintenance vs growing. For a lot of people, to add backlinks is called maintenance but obviously you have this as part of your whole plan/schedule so you include this. Some people think no maintenance means set it and forget it but since you do include backlinking runs of uaw etc then obviously you do what others call “maintenance” anyway. Just thought maybe people use the words differently a bit.

    Hi Mike

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are growing. Over time your backlinks will increase hopefully from syndication from ezinearticles. Your domains will age and that will be a factor.

    The more sites you have the better. With this system there is very little maintenance. I am also creating sites but in a sifferent style. My websites auto update with other content using wprobot.

    Do you have any tasks that you do that can be done by bots. I know you used senuke before. The thing is I am creating bots using ubot and I have bots to submit to forums, blogs, profile sites and web 2.0 sites like senuke. This tool with scrapebox will be very powerful. The thing is that there is a learning curve for ubot and will distract you from your adsense snipers. Just wondering your thoughts or anyones on another tool to help them automate any web activities.

    news…theres been an “acquaintance” buddy of mine looking to get a site up for his local business here. ive been putting it off and told him i didnt want any clients as im only doing this to get passive income and not “deal” with clients…he kept begging and begging because of a mutual friend kept telling him that i can get page 1 rankings…

    so i finally cracked and told him what the heck ill do it. but imma charge at least 5 bills to do it. I launched the site with his keyword and it landed page 1 with no content yet. now just gotta add a few posts, few pictures, put his phone number in a few spots and ill get paid.

    really needed it while im converting these snipers and launching amzon snipers as it will take awhile to get paid on any sales

    @Kasey Langton
    Nice! Dude. Really. Nice.

    U rock, man. Let me ask you this – are you stil using that crazy Kasey method of KW research? Not so crazy looking.

    @ James the Just
    100 dollar bills…and sure ill take 10 from ya…haha and yeah still using the so called “crazy method” of uncovering keywords, but ive already uncovered 250 of them, just got 50 more to go then ill have all 300 amzon snipes. already purchased 100 gotta purchase the other 200 once i find 50 more keywords…keep in mind that i dont even log in anything thats gets less than 10k searches a month using exact match on go0gle kw tool…i will put one in thats under 10k searches every so often if its getting high searches in msn or has low comp then ill go ahead and add it… and some kw i uncovered are getting 90k searches but id say they average around 20k searches a month as a whole, if i had to guess.

    @Kasey Langton
    Just curious, if you only use KW’s >10K searches/month, what is your guideline for #competing pages in g00gle?

  18. Kasey Langton
    March 8th, 2010 at 23:55 | #18

    as a rule of thumb i try to stay under 500k in quotes but ive ranked on the first page for 12million in quotes…so really if the domain is available as the exact keyword then i go for it…but if it doesnt get enough searches and the comp is over 500k then ill skip it in some cases

    Thanks Deb.. The problem is the mindset of “maintenance”, it gets you nowhere, fast. You should be always focused on GROWTH, when you are, maintenance is a non issue!

    @Sarwar Abedeen

    Hey Sarwar, ya I got my system down and not looking to automate anything, just outsource…

    The staples of my process are to outsource writing of content and outsource UAW articles then distribute the UAW articles…after that, I add into the mix another promotional method, be it BLS, Ezine or what have you..
