Day 32 – Adsense Sites?

Well, today I spent some time actually looking into the notion of creating sniper sites specifically for earning Adsense income…

I was able to find a niche where the CPC was around $3-6…I was able to find 19 websites that I could target, most of them had 4.4-8.4k searches for EXACT match in the Google Keyword Research Tool.

I’ve still got to get through with this batch of sniper sites, but when I’m done, I may try my hand at that…I even went looking for some adsense themes and found some which may be good (ad-flex-niche and bluesense).

Aside from that I got 1 more sniper site done in this new niche which makes a total of 4…I’m going to go through them a bit more rapid fire the next few days, I much prefer the 2 a day rythm.

Other than that, I had a pretty good day of sales again.  I had 6 sales today for a total of $133.36.  3 Were from sniper sites and 2 for site #1.

I don’t want to get too happy with this though as I feel I have a long way to go still and this needs to happen FASTER!…I need to get to the point where that is like an AVERAGE amount I get per day.  I’m either going to need to step up my site creation big time somehow or look into PPC or outsourcing…

Earnings For Today:


  • $133.36 from 6 sales ( 2 Sales from Site #1 = $26.38 + $20.36, 2 sales for the main sniper site niche = $27.12 + $16.61(this is for the second product in the sniper site niche that converts at like 1:300…the last sale is from another sniper site = $31.85)
  • Adsense = $7.22
  • Hops = 451
  • Total for the day = $140.58

    I have been following you for a few weeks now, and I must say I am impressed at how much entertainment, and value, your site provides on a daily basis. It has, in fact, inspired me to try my hand at creating a few sniper sites.

    Mike,

    That was an impressive day. Will you be using Court’s strategy for the adsense sites? Would you skip a product review and instead just have articles for that approach?

    Most impressive! :-D

    Where can I find Court’s strategy for adsense sites?

    Congrats on a good day!

    What would be the difference b/w a sniper site and an adsense site? More content and a niche that doesn’t have a clickbank product?

    Hey Dusty, thanks man, glad you’re liking it :> Good luck with the sites..

    Debbie, I’m not sure what you mean by Court’s strategy…but I think that will depend on if I decide to make them full adsense sites or to try and get affiliate commissions from the site as well(from Amazon).

    I’m not 100% sure at this time, but I’ll probably do a static front page and post a regular article up there.

    Hey Shelly, thanks :> Maybe Debbie can explain Court’s strat..

    @Carrie

    Hey Carrie thanks..The difference would be that I wouldn’t setup a new persona for the niche and I wouldn’t post up a pic/avatar on the side of the page. I also wouldn’t be telling a story about how some product worked for me but instead just post an article on the front page.

    As far as whether I’ll add a product or not, I’m not 100% sure on that yet…

    Mike and Shelly,

    I’m not too familiar with Court but thought that Mike was talking about the strategy of using hubpages to make adsense income:

    There was also something he wrote on adsense:

    But I’ve only skimmed it. I’m sure Mike has his own ideas which he will share.

    Hey Mike

    Good to see you still giving updates and tips on what you’re up to. Looks like all your hard work and trying things out is paying off for you. I always wonder over here to check out your latest ideas.

    I just bought bookmarking demon through your link (I figure you have always been so generous with sharing your techniques you deserve to get a little something back for your efforts).

    Anywho I just wondered before I start playing with it, do you have any tips or hints in addition to what the directions say, how many sites do you bookamark each time and how often do you bookmark.
    Thanks
    Linda

    So Mike, with the stories you tell about how the product worked (on your sniper sites) do you actually use the product or do you just make up a story of how it worked?

    thanks

    Debbie, my plan was to basically register a domain name targeting a keyword like I would for a sniper site, but instead place adsense on it and an article as a static front page.

    Hahah, Evita :>

    Hey Linda, I saw that, thanks :> I have never expected to make money from this site.

    As far as what to do with Bookmarking Demon, you want to go into preferences and under “pull random pages from the following RSS'” put these in there:

    http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/us
    http://feeds.digg.com/digg/popular.rss
    http://rss.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032091/device/rss/rss.xml

    Then you can have it randomly add some pages from this to your bookmarking to make it seem more natural.

    Aside from that, you’ll want to spread your bookmarking out amongst many accounts. What I’d do is once a day for the next week, I’d go and create accounts at all of the bookmarking sites, so at the end of it all, you’ll have 7 accounts per bookmarking site…it’s a good idea to spread them out as much as possible.

    As far as how often you should bookmark, you have to kind of use your discretion. The most I’d bookmark would be about 4-5 pages a day, that’s not to say you can’t do more, you really have to experiment for yourself to find the limits. You may also encounter some of your bookmarking accounts getting deleted, it’s happened to me before, just create new ones.

    And as far as the stories about how well the product worked, that is something made up..if you’ve actually used the product, that will help in the story telling, but it’s not necessary.

    Mike,

    If you use sniper for an adsense site would you then just leave out the photo also as there or would you have a little bio of a person and not endorse something specifically (unless you were targetting a product name and using adsense for that)?

    @Mikeman thanks for taking the time to give those extra tips Mike, much appreciated

    Haha. Good job. I can’t wait my highest is like $66/day which is 2 sales. I can’t wait till I get to 5-10 sales a day consistently. Then I’m just going to keep building.
