Day 327 – Adsense Sniper #194

March 28th, 2010


HAHA! This one’s great!

Got another adsense sniper up, not much else to report, taking things a bit easier these days to be honest.

I’ll probably throw sites up until I’m a little over 200 sites total and start backlinks up again.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $16.61
  • Adsense = $95.31
  • XFactor sale = $30.80 (tnx :>)
  • Total = $142.72

    @Kasey Langton

    I have been pretty confused about the exact and broad settings to tell you the truth. I did a lot of research trying to find exactly what google meant by broad, exact, etc… Google is not clear at all about which number is actually the amount of searches for that term.

    I decided to start doing all of my research on broad because that is what John is doing in the Xfactor course. He specifies that he has MNF set to ‘exact’. I went over his screen shots and noticed that they line up exactly with what google keyword tool shows when it is set to ‘broad’.

    Also, what MSN keyword tool are you talking about?

    This is the only one I can find and its more like a neutered version of google trends.

    http://adlab.msn.com/Keyword-Forecast/

    My sites don’t seem to want to rise above slot #10. I’m only pushing 1 week on some of the sites and 2 1/2 weeks on others. I’m definitely not sandboxed. I got UAW 3 days ago and sent a run to each of my sites so that should start making a huge difference. I’m really not that worried about it.

    I think the problem is that my ezines and goarticles just weren’t getting indexed. Goarticles especially.

    @Josh
    It sounds like you’re doing great, Josh – to quote MikeMan – keep building, keep building, and when you’re done with that…build some more.

    With age, your articles/sites will/should go up a bit, but especially if you follow the keyword strategies on Mike’s readme – he goes a number of yards beyond the AdSense course. Using the SEOQuake tool from FireFox/SeO book, you can easily do some in-depth research to take the first page.

    In any event, Kasey has the Langton method – uses MSN’s keyword tool in conjunction with G’s, but between you and me – I’ve never found it. Don’t tell Kasey.

    I can’t seem to get past the form to generate an ad on MSN. I don’t want Kasey to think I’m an idiot, so I haven’t told him yet.

    Interesting on the MNF/Go0gle “exact/broad” search term parallel. never noticed. But way to go with the keywords/sites ranking! Spot on.

    @JamestheJust on Elance
    @ Josh
    mnf “exact” matches go0gle “broad”? that may be a prob…go to go0gle kw tool and do a search then you will see a drop down box above the results on the right side where you can select, broad, phrase or exact. switch to exact and it will tell you what that “exact” keyterm searches gets. broad is just what that keyterm gets on a broad level, meaning any combo of those words and what people may add to the keyterm so its best to select exact search.

    and the only way you can use msn kw tool is to become an advertiser, it costs $5 just one time, NOT monthly.

    https://adcenter.microsoft.com/

    sign up and it will ask you to create an ad and yada yada, try and skip all that if you can…then you will get to your main screen and click on tools at the top then click research keywords. if you cant get to it, try logging out and logging back in, but you need to get to the main screen…it will have these options spread horizontally across the top

    click Tools->Research Keywords, there is no broad, phrase or exact on msn, its defaulted to exact match.

    @Kasey Langton

    You put enough doubt in me that I went back and checked. I even wrote down the numbers between the course and what was in google keyword tool and in spyfu. I’m not quite sure was happening that day but on second check they don’t line up at all.

    Basically all of my websites are useless. Anyone want some .com domain names that get something like 90 searches a month? hahahaha

    I’m glad I brought this up. I was going to buy some new domain names tonight.

    bahhh… starting over a 3rd time I suppose. Time to get to work.

    @Josh
    starting over is all part of the IM game. you learn each time and get better and better…but if your sites hold value then try selling them on flippa, there are always people looking for .coms and like to fix up sites and use them for PPC or whatever the case.

    so now that you will be targeting keywords that actually get searched, you will notice the coms will be harder to come by…so .net and .org, either one will work as previously stated.

    heres a vid on flippa:

    @Kasey Langton

    Yes, .coms will be much harder to come by.

    Some of my sites might still make me a little money every month but nothing major. None of them get more than 1k searches a month. The highest is 880. I will have a look at flippa. Hopefully I can sell some of these sites just so I can pay for more domains.

    I guess I am going to liquidate the rest of my savings on as many domains as I can squeeze out. Then spend the rest of my time on infobarrels or something.

    I’m glad I brought this up. Thanks Kasey.

    They’re hard to come by but when they’re available you should grab them.

    Not view .com’s the same as .net and .org and go ahead and buy the other two instead.

    @Josh
    no prob…im sure Mikeman will have some great advice in regarding the situation as well on what your best options may be.

    @Kasey Langton

    I am going to start doing a lot of research on selling sites. I am told sites usually sell for 12 times their monthly income. The profit I would make from a sniper that makes just $100 a month would buy me a lot of domains.

    Granted I know virtually nothing about this so I may be pretty naive.

    You mentioning Flippa actually made me think of this. So thanks…Again. hahaha

    @Josh
    no prob..but do a TON of research before listing, lotta factors go into site flipping.

    @ Mikeman,
    i found 3 keywords that get over 100k searches a month on exact match, one of em gets over 200k, these are physical products. im praying to the Almighty that they dont get sandboxed and get on page 1 pretty quickly.

    questions is…have you noticed it taking any longer in time to rank for keywords that get a higher number of searches? Ive always wondered about this and have not been able to test it until now when i purchase these domains i suppose.

    @Josh
    @ all
    oh and one more thing…i know people have their own opinions about godaddy BUT…IF you are using godaddy for your registrar then you can use coup0n c0de cjccab749 (once your at checkout) to get .nets AND .orgs for 7.49 and when searching for domains you will want to ADD them all at once before going to checkout and this will be considered a bulk register. IF you are registering more than 5 domains you can get free private registration for all of them

  12. Josh
    March 30th, 2010 at 09:55 | #12

    @Kasey Langton

    Yeah I realise it is going to take a ton of research. I just don’t want to have to sort through all the bullshit all over again like I did before I found people like Mike, Grizzly, and Ben for adsense.

    My initial research tells me that just making a site and selling it for $1,200 is unrealistic. How sad…hahaha

    @Josh
    re: flipping, you should check out webcareergirl dot com – she’s ruth and used to post here regularly – she told me about this site in the first place. she’s into flipping, and has been doing it for months, though not sure where she is in the process.

    i have a few sites that have appraised in the $800-900 range, but it’s because of ranking, content, montetization and keyword potential – easily a money-making keyword structure. that’s my guess anyhow, and it has 195 backlinks or so.

    a common price for flipping right out of the gate is about $100-150 – but again check out Ruth’s site, she could help you with that.

  14. March 30th, 2010 at 13:05 | #14

    @Josh
    re: flipping, also – you should read what seobook has said on the selling of domains – a very authoritative and better look at appraising a site versus the traditional methods out there. depending on kw, you can get more than you’d think, but probably not for low quality kw’s.

    anyhow, you mentioned infobarrels…hm. don’t think that would be a good play. same with any 3rd party site situation – you just don’t have the control you need to make it work, and you don’t get 100% of your cut. you’re much better off making your own sites, optimizing the ads correctly, and doing better kw research.

    Mikeman used to do some of those a while back, though not sure it was infobarrels, i think hub pages. i’m sure he’d have some thoughts on it, but i think you should just read mike’s readme about kw research and go from there…

    not sure if i am allowed to post this link or not, but ill try it anyway. its a nice guide as a starting point for selling sites. and it will boost confidence when your listing.

    this will cut through all the nonsense and get right to the meat.

    Al :

    To offer those prices they need to be offshore (Panama actually = tax haven), outsourcing customer service is common, try calling HG I’m pretty sure they’ll connect you to somebody in India.

    blackhatworld.com is registered with internet.bs if that helps with credibility. (I’m pretty sure Mike and a lot of us are members there)

    I’m American educated but living in a 3rd world country I guess I stopped being prejudice against people that don’t speak English as a first language. Sure it’s funny making fun of other people’s accent/dialect but is it worth that extra $2 you pay to GoDaddy?

    You choose.

    Seems like this post got stuck in the spam..lots of stuff keeps getting stuck there for some reason..

    Well, keywords that have a higher number of searches often have more competition which leads to it being harder to rank on page 1 for…

    This is not always the case though..I’ve ranked on page 1 easily for a kw that has 12k searches/month but low competition…I can’t say what would happen with kw’s that get over 100k exact searches, I’ve never come across kw’s like that which are easy to rank for.

    Of course it also has to do with the niche…

    March 30th, 2010 at 17:21 | #23

    @Mikeman
    well, ive noticed that there is a hefty number on competition for name specific physical products, BUT its mainly online stores so the keywords are on pages on the domain. so something like bigonlinestore.com/thephysicalproductnamehere so its much different than a sniper as you can imagine and much different from a clickbank product where everyone and their grandma is trying to promote. know what i mean? so im hoping it will be surprisingly simple to rank for considering.

    @ Al
    im from Texas, where everyone has guns, talk alot of sh*t and ride horses to work. so to answer your questions, yes its worth paying the extra $2 because its security knowing that if ANYTHING goes wrong at ANY giving time then all it takes is to pick up the phone at ANY time of the day…even at 3am to resolve a problem. and g0daddy is located in Arizona so everyone speaks perfect English there and can resolve any questions or problems immediately

    @Josh
    For the record, when I referenced Ruth’s blog (webcareergirl) – SHE references Michelle’s material (which material I opted in for). It’s something I would do after focusing on AdSense, for what it’s worth, definitely.

    (Sorry, I couldn’t remember the direct source, I just know that Ruth’s site was a nexus of ideas for me.)

    i would have just posted this link the first time if i had known how i got there to begin with…but wanted to add that its definitely worth opting in to get the ebook, probably the best book on the web for site flipping, thank you Michelle for providing this information.

    My internet has been down since yesterday afternoon so I haven’t been able to post again. Thats a frustrating way to have your work day killed.

    Anyways, thanks for the suggestions, I will read over all of them when I get time.
