    Love your stuff. Really helps keep me in check and motivates me to keep up with the monotonous parts of this business. Quick question, you are using UAW, right now I use AMA. I get back links from some of these articles. Now, if an article gets picked up 100 times, I may only find a half dozen or so registered back links. AMA articles are spun also so the content is unique. Problem is that site owners may be taking out the link themselves. If your article gets published 100 times through UAW, do you know how many back links you are getting on average? I am debating on whether switching to UAW will benefit me or if keeping AMA is the way to go. It is a bit cheaper too but not enough to keep me from UAW. Submit Your Article is another I have considered but I have shied away from that one. If any other readers have input here your experiences would be great to hear too.

    Ya, great movie man, there haven’t been many good movies out lately (unless you want to count How To Train Your Dragon which was rated well, but is geared towards kids)…Iron Man 2 is coming out next month though and hopefully Inception will be good..


    Ya, no big deal to me…if I was focused on building my business hard(I’m going a bit easy now) I wouldn’t even blink at this..this is how it is, I’m showing the good and the bad, it’s all normal/part of the game.

    Last night I saw “Date Night” starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey. It was really funny. Crude language, but done in a dorky “out of touch” way that was funny.

    I’m confident your Adsense will bounce back.

    Mike –

    You really should see “Tropic Thunder.”

    Thank me later. No way will I admit who I am. I’m ashamed I even admitted i watched that movie…but WOW. Funny, funny stuff — so long as you didn’t watch it a thousand times already.

    Since this is a slow thread…lemme toss this in here. We all know that matching your intended keyword with your domain works. (Some people on other forums can’t get that into their heads.)

    If I had to guess, I would say a matching domain gives your site 30-40 quality back links of “juice” to your SERPs. This is why you can get freshly indexed and show up on page 1 on Google.

    Anyone else care to quantize the worth of a matching keyword domain? Like I said, it feels like 30-40 back links, maybe more.

  9. April 18th, 2010 at 22:29 | #9

    sure, if you can define “quantize”

    Hey, you start somewhere, that’s where I started!

    @JL Scott

    Hey thanks man..

    The # of backlinks you get varies with UAW…you can expect around 30 backlinks, however sometimes I get double that.

    I can’t talk about any personal experience with AMA except that I haven’t heard good things about it from a friend of mine who’s used both that and UAW..he cancelled AMA and used UAW as I have to develop a massive income..

    What I can say though is you can’t go wrong with UAW and money isn’t an issue when you’re using it right…I mean really, $67/month for something which other than a few Ezine Submissions, single handedly got me to a full time income? For those in the know, this is a no-brainer.


    Ya, that’s rated 7.1, not bad…

    @some anonymous fool

    Hah, ya, saw that, Tom Cruise was unexpected :>

    Jeff – don’t balk at that! Good start. um…silly question: what is “AMA?” I thought that was “american medical association”…didn’t know they did article marketing.

    I have been analysing my last group of 10 sites. I have some sites sitting in the top 3 getting no views at all and other sitting on page 3 getting clicks every day.

    If I have a site that is getting just a few hits a day for its main keyword and is sitting in position #9 do you think it would be worthwhile to build it up to top 5 or top 3, or is the keyword likely another dud? According to google it gets 12k searches a month, so I think I should be getting more than 3 hits a day.

    My plan for these sites was to write 3 pages, send a UAW run, and a few ezines and see where it falls, then grow the sites from there because 3 pages is pretty thin. I can see now that some of the sites I shouldn’t even bother with.

    So, to rephrase the question, if the site is barely getting any traffic(but traffic none the less) at the bottom of the page, is it worth it to get it to the top? I know normally you would just move onto making another site, but I’m guessing you have to have developed an understanding of how much traffic you get at each position on page one.

    Also, for those who were wondering earlier(James). A lot of my infobarrels are landing on the top page for their terms(these all have ~500 searches/month) with only one 1 ezine, but aren’t making any money. My infobarrels which are targeting harder terms(2k-30k searches/month) are actually falling in the rankings after sending them UAW links. Another page, which is going for a term with a high CPC, a lot of searches, and a lot of competition was indexed in under an hour then I aimed 5 similar infobarrels at it and it was immediately dropped from the both google and yahoo’s index. The support pages are ranking for the term on the 40th page. Either way, it has 10 UAW articles aiming at it which will begin sending links sometime tomorrow… I find it completely insane though, its like the search engines knew what I was going to do with it. The article isn’t even spammy or thin, I spent three hours making sure the information was quality and it came out to 2300 words.

    I’m going to try a lot of the same strategies with hubpages this week before my UAW trial runs out next week.

    Hey Mike

    If I want to build backlinks for one site using 10 articles, should I submit all of them to ezinearticles or submit them to different article directories such as goarticles, articlebase, etc. ? I heard that backlinks from different sites will help a lot in rankings. But in this case in which way can I get the best results? I mean if all of these articles get indexed by google.

    when i submit article through UAW, should article relevant to your site ?

  18. April 19th, 2010 at 11:50 | #18

    According to the AdSense master’s course (the Xfactor course) you would submit those 10 to ezine, get them approved, then cross-publish to Articles Base and Go articles… doing that I gave my early sites about 50-75 backlinks for free. just took lots of writing…

    OK, is that 12k broad or 12k exact? My feeling is that it isn’t exact but rather broad and that’s the reason for the lack of traffic.

    You need to go after keywords that have at least 2.4k+ *exact* matches, it’s rare that I find one that is 12k exact, so this might be your problem.

    But as far as what you should do…you need to execute your plan on every site indiscriminately…Make sure each site has at least 1 UAW run on it and then re-assess.

    Also, the way you’re doing things is different from how I’d do it..I wouldn’t build a site, then see how it does then build more pages, I’d build each site with 5 pages to start with…you don’t want to have sites in your profile with only 3 pages.

    If a site is barely getting any traffic at the bottom of the page, you first have to ask yourself why that is…did you mess up on the keyword research? If you did and it ends up being a keyword that truly only gets 1k exact searches/month or some such thing, then it might not be worth your time to bother with it further…If however everything checks out, and it looks like you can take positions 1-5, go do another backlink run on it.

    The only way you’ll know what happens when that ranks higher is by getting it to rank higher.

    Don’t be afraid of experimenting like this when you’re new to the game, it’s not a waste of time, you will learn something from your efforts…but again, check that you are looking at EXACT match.


    Well, I can only tell you what I would do and what gets me results, which would be to submit to Ezine and then thereafter submit to UAW..I can’t prescribe anything I wouldn’t bother doing…I don’t bother with directories other than Ezine for manual submission.


    This is answered in the Read Me..

    Its exact. I already went through that debacle once… Broad it says it gets 110k.

    I did keyword research for 4 days trying to come up with the keywords for my last(for a little while) 10 sites(I narrowed it down from ~70 keywords). They range from 2.9k-27k exact. I definitely botched a few of them and misjudged the competition.

    The sites that I am already in the top 3 for get 12k and 8k exact according to google, but I’m not getting ANY traffic from these keywords. Spyfu, as well as the first page of google, show that the terms even have advertisers. I guess this is completely unavoidable. Google’s tool does just give you estimates.

    My original plan was to make all of the sites with 5 pages but I ended up building all of the sites one day, then adding 1 article every 2 days for a week and backlinking every other day. It was just a plan to get them indexed and ranking faster, I’m not sure I will use it again in the future. All of them did have UAW articles as well as ezines by the way.

    I will work on getting my sites to the top of the page, thanks.

    and have you tried other keyword research tools? and what tools?
    have you tried semrush for example? i think it is rather competitive.

    Ya, I had a look at SEMRush before..For kw research though I keep things simple. I stick to just the Google KW Tool or MNF.
