Day 356 – Last 3 UAW Submissions(30)

April 26th, 2010

Well, the last of the UAW submissions for my inner pages is now done..

These days I’m going to be focused less on increasing my income and more on solidifying and beefing up the sites I already have…so if you’re looking to see my income hit new levels, that may or may not happen in the process.

I still have a bunch of new sites to put up and backlink, but after that I’m going to switch gears to just adding more pages to my existing sites.

So far the new theme I implemented on one of my blogs is performing just as well(if not better) the last 2 days, I’ll leave it on for a few more to be sure, but this looks like it could be a good one.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $57.63 – 1 CB sniper sale + 1 authority site sale
  • Adsense = $131.25
  • Total = $188.88

    Mike – a change in tactic! I think there’ll be a lot of people out there saying “Told you so”; very much looking forward to seeing the results of more content.

    Is this a confidence in your sites thing, or just covering your bases after what happened to Ben?

    P.S. Started my own little IM blog, let’s hope it maks it through a week…

    ey there Mike man.

    from your vast experience,
    could sites like amazon be beaten in SERP?

    Mike,

    I notice that you use to use Senuke then you changed to UAW.

    Were you not happy with Senuke and why did you change UAW?

    @Kenneth

    Hey Kenneth, I have always been confident in the sites I’ve built to this point, after what happened to Ben though I’m just taking extra precautions.

    I’ve heard stories of people being de-indexed despite having 1k word posts and 20-25 pages per site, so who knows what Google’s criteria is..

    Nice going setting up the blog.

    @calfred

    Hey Calfred, ya, you can beat an amazon listing…But really, the best way for you to figure out what you can beat is to go out there and build a ton of sites and get the first hand experience. You can read up all you want to on this, but unless you go and get some first hand experience on this, you will never truly figure this stuff out.

    @Steve

    Hey Steve, I switched off of SENuke as I didn’t see as good results from it vs UAW.

    An SENuke run would usually get me maybe 1 or 2 registered Yahoo backlinks while UAW would end up giving 30 or so.

    I did see some results from it though, if you read up on my past posts you will see.

  5. April 26th, 2010 at 20:51 | #5

    @calfred

    Definitely can beat Amazon, eBay, super big-name stores with 4-5 and more PR…

    Can happen with age, has happened to me, and I still can’t believe it. Backlinks + Solid SEO + Solid content and EXACT domain…lookout below!

    Mike: great idea, I think you’re making a wise move, imho. I noticed on one site that I “Dugg” when I got…**BANNED**…from Digg! (wincing), dropped from page 2 in G to…Venus? That was the last Digg for me so far — all that to say, I can’t get a response from G about it, but I’m glad they obliterated one site only and not all of my sites.

    All that to say, I don’t think you can be too careful. At this point, it’s not as if fortifying your position is a bad thing: you have something worthy to protect.

    In my experience losing backlinks is a huge SEO minus. Be sure to replace them.

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    James, didn’t you say that you joined SEOLinkVine when it was open early? Mind if I ask how much it is monthly?

  8. April 26th, 2010 at 23:49 | #8

    @ThomasT
    They are officially opening tomorrow around 12 noon eastern, give or take a nanosecond…

    There are 2 programs: pay as you go/per article (submission of a 400-500 word article, I believe, is $3 if I remember correctly), or $47/month.

    I haven’t been working my own business lately, only my clients’, so I can’t recall the exact figures but I’m 90% sure those are spot-on.

  9. April 27th, 2010 at 00:04 | #9

    @Jordan
    definitely, but attrition of backlinks is inevitable for just about anything but social bookmarks (given they are deemed legit, automated software has 25-50% retention), articles submitted to directories, site directory submissions, and web 2.0 properties that you personally have user-end control over.

    even with the natural attrition of some UAW links, my numbers have settled rather nicely, Mike says he gets about 30 or so per run, I can agree with those results so far (in rare cases even more).

    before my UAW runs, my sites had PR n/a, afterwards my PR on a few sites has grown, SERP rank has jumped, and I’m able to compete with amazon, big industry names in my niches, and much higher PR’s than Mike seems to suggest in his readme (I’m sure that Mike’s sites out-perform many of the same sorts of sites).

    UAW isn’t BS. I don’t think SEOLinkVine will be much different…though I’ve heard mixed reviews from My Article Network, the blog network/UAW competitor owned by Matt Callen, Brad’s brother (SEOLinkVine).

    As soon as I personally can vouch for it, I’ll be sure to spill the beans on the results, though I don’t think I’ll ever stop UAW.

    One great way to use UAW is to send out pre-sales articles, point to a landing or opt-in page, and have the sales come in. It’s made me over $1100 doing exactly that from 2 runs on one site….since then Elance has taken over (can’t complain, doing well either way).

    All that to say, I haven’t noticed anything but upward momentum from my sites after UAW — I’ve used other services where my backlinks went to 100 do-follow…then settled back at 11 backlinks.

    That sucked.

    This was a result of using developer-hut — which my brother-in-law used to quite nicely along with his manual blog comments, and has dominated the first 1/3 of Googl3’s SERP for another site (not a sniper)…in my case, the developer-hut run had zero benefit on that site by way of ranking.

    So, I can definitely say that the UAW runs have been dynamite to my SERP rankings, much quicker than traditional article marketing, though I don’t think I’ll stop doing that either (love writing!). There hasn’t been a negative impact so far from UAW at all.

    In my case, TWO RUNS have more than purchased my annual subscription, and I’m not done yet…

    Random thought for everyone.

    When I took my intro to psychology class 2 years ago I did a project where I proved that listening to death metal(especially if you don’t like it) increases your focus and listening to classical lowers it. When I started the test I thought the opposite would happen. After discussing it with my teacher he told me that the music gives people the feeling of being under pressure or stressed which studies show increases focus.

    I thought of this today and set my pandora account to Megadeth(which is admittedly not death metal). It is usually set to techno or something like Clint Mansell or Hans Zimmer because it blends into the background nicely. Listening to something a lot more aggressive made a huge difference.

    @Mikeman

    I have began working on hubpages and infobarrels again today and I was wondering something.

    Why do you think your hubpages and infobarrels didn’t turn out as well as you would have liked? I don’t recall you ever reaching 300 hubs+150 infobarrels like you planned.

    Thanks.

  12. April 27th, 2010 at 08:15 | #12

    @Josh
    Have you ever looked into Demand Studios (for quick cash)? If you write for infobarrels/hubs, and needed quick cash, you should look into it, imho — you can make instant money to keep working your business, get money within a week to ten days even.

  13. April 27th, 2010 at 08:17 | #13

    @Josh
    btw: my pandora/project playlist is nothing *but* techno/metal. just seems to work for me, for the same reason you note! pretty cool to hear i’m not the only one.

  14. April 27th, 2010 at 08:49 | #14

    @ Everyone who uses UAW,
    When you build a new site do you submit right to UAW for a run, or do you let the site age for awhile.

    …also who needs heavy metal music when you have 2 small screaming children?

    Hi Mike
    I can see you are becoming somewhat concerned about Google. I’ve been doing 7 pages per site… 5 content and a privacy and Site Map page.

    Are you now thinking this may not be enough? My sites are
    just starting to roll. Don’t want to screw it all up.

    Thanks

    Hi Again

    I hear Incansoft has a new update on their Directory Bot and submits to 700+ directories. They are pretty cheap and usually do a decent job. Is that something that we want to do? I may have read here that it’s a no-no? … but we want to get to the directories in another manner?

    Thanks

    Bill

  17. April 27th, 2010 at 13:35 | #17

    @Bill
    Re: directory bot — Mike doesn’t say anything about that in the Readme, I’ve just bought Directory bot just because there was a sale at Incansoft…got a few things. In any event, their RSS and Social bookmarking programs work fine — as to the directories: I’ve submitted manually to a handful, they’re good for link-love depending who you submit to, if your question is, “is that something we want to do,” that’s your choice. It’s your business, but I’m personally using Incansoft for the directory run.

    The reason Mike does what he does is that he’s found a system that works and works *quickly* — so I’m giving you my 2cents, but Mike’s lightyears beyond me, so take my 2 coppers for what it’s worth.

    Again: his method is both efficient and sufficient, and he doesn’t mention directory submissions. How you work your biz is up to you, though.

    @Kelly
    I more or less do what Mike suggests, though I first write an Ezine or two or three…depending on how much time I have. Then I UAW, RSS feed submitters, Social bookmark software…

    Mike’s system works, though, quite nicely. It all depends on your goal. Mike’s is to build massive amounts of VRE, stop then backlink. What you choose is really up to you, some like to fortify a bit more with backlinks, but again: up to you how you work your biz.

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    Demand Studios turned down my application. Its honestly because I’m not a very talented author. I’m sure the fact that the only thing I could list on my resume is a high school education, 100 infobarrels, and 150 ezines didn’t help either.

    I did become a member of associated content. I sent them 3 articles and I am waiting to hear back from them. If they are accepted then I will probably work on articles for them 8 hours a day for a few weeks.

    I am doing the hubpages/infobarrel thing right now because I think its the fastest way I can get to $50-$100/day. Its probably the safest way I can go for volume with the drivel I have a tenancy to write as well.

    I’m hoping that in the meantime the legal battle between Amazon and the internet tax states will get sorted out and I can start making Amazon snipers. I think its obvious that the bill is unconstitutional, hopefully the courts will agree.

    I’m hoping that in the meantime the legal battle between Amazon and the internet tax states will get sorted out and I can start making Amazon snipers. I like the fact that they pay you for everything in their cart.

    I’m also going to begin working on a authority site in the singing niche which will sell an ebook/course I have been slowly working on. I have no idea how much money I could make from this but I do know more on the subject than the average singing instructor so at the very least I will help people who were in the same position I was in a year ago.

    I have no idea why it sent that paragraph twice….or decided to only include one of the last 2 sentence on each. Woah.

  21. April 27th, 2010 at 20:47 | #21

    @Kelly

    Hi Kelly, I got the similar suspicion too. I am in the mid experimenting it. So far after about a week of test, the results show that those sites that were back linked to more authority sites first responded faster and better then those I send straight to UAW.

  22. April 27th, 2010 at 21:50 | #22

    @Tinman
    and Kelly:

    If you guys read the “readme” at the top of the blog, you’ll see what Mike does re: backlinks. It’s not *just* UAW. All of his sites, according to this blog anyway, have web 2.0 backlinks, from social bookmarks to ezine articles, RSS feeds and a Digg.

    A proper backlinking strategy is varied, with several backlinks, preferrably from various means, pointing to a site. I personally wouldn’t just use one method no matter what anyone told me. I’d always go at least with 5 Ezines to a domain, but that’s just my preference.

    Cut and paste that to other directories for 3 directories total (PR4+), then UAW runs…

    Kelly: you asked if we let our sites age — I know Mike does for a bit (in the readme), but only because he works in stages: build-build-build, then backlink 30 sites, then build…hope that helps.

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    Ya, my guess is they are doing automated sweeps and if they see something that is unnatural, like going from $0-$100/day in 3 months on a new account, it is flagged for manual inspection. Thereafter if they don’t like what they see, you get the boot.

    Plans change Josh…if something isn’t working out you don’t continue along with it. I reached 200 Hubs and 100 Infobarrels I believe.

    I never stopped to figure out why it didn’t work out, but it’s probably due to a combination of #1. Not backlinking up all the hubs & 2, not going after the best keywords. I’m not so sure about #2 as I haven’t looked over my keywords now that I know a lot more about keyword selection, but definitely #1 played a role.

    I think Grizz’ post addresses this if you haven’t checked it out already…This game is always changing, I say if you’re starting to make some decent money, you should look into beefing up your sites just to be on the safe side.

    @Tinman

    I have never encountered problems when I did a UAW submission soon after the creation of a site. Of course before I do that, I always do BMD/RSS and Digg submissions.

    Were you picking keywords you just couldn’t rank for or were they just bad niches?
