Day 359 – Outsourced 10 UAW Articles

April 29th, 2010

Just went ahead and did the outsourcing of another 10 UAW articles to Human Rewriter…that makes 16 total which when I get back, will be used to backlink 32 of my latest adsense snipers.

The wait time is pretty short right now, like 16-24 hours, so I’ve already got back my original 6 submissions…I’ll start submitting these to Ezine shortly.

Regarding the last 30 sites I’ve put up, they’ve definitely been pulling more lately, but I”ll have to wait a while longer before I can say that they are doing so consistently as today they brought in a slight bit less.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $10.79
  • UAW renewal = $26.80 (tnx :>)
  • Backlink Solutions sale = $29.10 (tnx :>)
  • Adsense = $111.65
  • Total = $178.34

    earnings and traffic’s been shooting through the roof for me. Started some time early last week.

    I guess it’s the up and downs of adsense.

    I think the changes have a lot to do w/ weather-Spring is here.

    Can’t shake a stick at your bad days, man — your floor is my ceiling! Nice to see Human Rewriter’s catching up and growing, too — their service is fantastic.

    Cant’ wait to see how these runs perform for your “new floor” — I’d imagine they can only help.

    Hi Mike,

    Just a few questions if you don’t mind. I was going to make a comment on a previous post where you mentioned Grizzly but just thought to post it up here instead. So now that you’re averaging well over $100+ days, did your adsense account ever get reviewed? Do you have multiple adsense accounts? With the recents posts from Grizzly and BenK, are you changing up your adsense sniper strategy or are you continuing to build out micro niched sites?

    I like how you write your progress before the day is even over lol! Hope you get over $150 today on AdSense.

    @Hann – I don’t think Google will ever notify you that your account has been reviewed, unless it’s a ban.

    I’m a little bit wary of the small niche sites so I will start telling my partner to write posts with lots of external links to sites that sell the products.

    Look at this site for example of a banned AdSense XFactor-ish site: gatoradebottle dot com

    Why did his account get banned? Is it because there is no Gatorade bottles for sale there? I think if I was a potential buyer for those bottles, I would be pissed to find that there is nothing to buy or direct me to buy the bottle other than hitting the back button or the AdSense ads.

  7. April 29th, 2010 at 15:48 | #7

    the site itself isn’t deindexed though. the gatorade bottle site.

    @Kai Lo

    It could be that there is absolutely nothing useful on that site.

    I think the big thing is that google is watching out for its advertisers. I am sure that the traffic they get from out sites doesn’t convert too well compared to the other traffic they get for that keyword.

    Reading that Gatorade site makes me feel great about what I’ve been writing.

    Whoever put that site up deserved to have their adsense acct banned.

    Yes, this.

    I don’t know how many others here have experience of dealing with G’s adw0rds, I do. When we put up ads3nse sites, we are building the G’s “content network” for them. To think that G is finding and deindexing sites because of a certain $/day, or number of pages, is imo crazy. I would wager they are deindexing these MFA networks due to advertisers blacklisting the sites over and again on the adw0rds side.

    Think about it, G has no reason to hate if a site is ranking, getting traffic, and getting clicks on an ads3nse block. This is G’s business model! Xfactor IIRC talks about this “secret favouritism” in his book. They really don’t worry they’re serps are getting a little spammy looking, they’ve gotta know they’re still leagues ahead of B or Y! What they will hate is adw0rds advertisers blacklisting sites and not wanting to pay for unconverting clicks, or even more so unintentional clicks that have no hope of converting.

    Anyone paying attention to their content campaigns will be weeding out terrible sites (like the above gatorade example) and drawing G’s attention to them. Imo anyhow.

    hey mike , for the inner page keyword , does it have to be highly targeted with the main keyword and meet the same conditions of monthly search at least 2400 or how I should go bout choosing it . thanks a lot I have build about 10 sites so far but haven’t done back linking as of now yet am doing it today as i have a plan for every 10 sites i would take a day off to do the back linking then get back on my regular schedule for 10 sites every week. all this would have been impossible without your help and other people. thanks a lot

  14. April 29th, 2010 at 19:48 | #14

    Spot-on, Dave — again: quality content. Or “content is king,” and really approaching this whole thing from a quality perspective. G has every right to protect their interests from a quality assurance perspective.

    Are you writing (or paying for articles to be written) from the perspective of what value you add to the reader’s experience? It doesn’t matter if we provide a click to buy (though why wouldn’t you?), so long as you look at this thing from a consumer point of view.

    Before I buy something, I read about it (if it’s a big enough purchase or I don’t know about it). From that perspective, if I’m reading a regurgitated article from Ezine that had the content quality of a candy bar wrapper…then I wouldn’t be happy.

    If you’re writing on a product, then give a review, a comparison, a buyer’s guide type of article — helpful stuff. Something that matters.

    Or ask yourself what your buying objections would be to the product in question, then answer the objection so that the buyer will buy (just for example). In that case, so long as it’s not all BS (especially if it’s in the diet/weight loss niche and you’re full of it), then you’ve done your thing…

    And it’s a win/win/win: you win (you get the click, get to keep on rolling), your reader wins (genuine content, gets information relative to search terms), and your advertiser wins with an interested buyer/visitor.

    I think a lot of this would be a moot point if quality was job #1 from article marketing to landing page. But again, just my 2 cents.

    RE: Gatorade bottle site: This guy is asking for trouble, he also has a trademarked name…I received my first cease and desist email today on one of my 3 trademarked domains and supposedly they said that they mailed/or emailed me last January the first time (I haven’t received any) and that they have a deadline of May 5th to transfer the domain over or else, they will file legal action. Also this is a law firm that emailed me.. I took down the site and tole them that I am ready to transfer it to them…so guys just a warning to all that have brand name domains…be careful coz these big companies have law firm watch dogs checking the net..sooner or later, you will get this letter…I will also take down the other domains that I have, just to save me some headache. The funny thing is that they have 2 pages on the letter dissecting every word of the domain that implies that I’m defaming their company and I have advertisers on the site (Adsense)that is their direct competitor…amyways lesson learned.

  16. April 29th, 2010 at 21:23 | #16

    I wouldn’t worry about it. Seriously. 80% of letters or emails from lawyers is about as far as a company will go — and what “legal action”?

    Sorry. I just think you should wait that out… Furthermore: they have NO RIGHT to tell you to “hand over” any domain: I don’t care if you have a picture of their MOM on your site!

    I’d write a letter of demand asking for payment through a regular transaction, like on Flippa — you want my domain? Pay for it.

    Seriously. Don’t get punked or spooked by some legal pimp. What the heck are they going to do?

    You **NEVER** give over a domain — WITHOUT payment?! — what, did they send you a dead fish in the mail?

    &$%@ that, seriously, wait that out imho. but NEVER –>>GIVE<<– a domain. I don't care if it was barack Obama… You paid for it, they can't take it over. That's straight up BS.

    What, if you put "Big Mac" in the display URL, will Ronald freaking McDonald come knocking on your door — ?!

    The first job I did on Elance was for a LAWYER. Transcribing "Legal Basics for Business," the lawyer's name is Dava C. something… At any rate, there was a whole section on protecting your marks and you know what? It is VERY hard for them to prove JACK SQUAT in court.

    And bottom line: unless you're saying, "This product causes cancer" or some LIE and slander, you're FREELY ADVERTISING for them.

    SO guess what?

    KICK ROCKS. You want my site? PAY UP, SUCKA.


  17. April 29th, 2010 at 21:24 | #17

    @JamestheJust on Elance
    btw, when I say, “Pay up,” I don’t mean a lousy $8-10, either: I mean, PAY ME. At the VERY least, 6 months of income from that domain, or something similar.

    that’s serious BS. And all the more reason to have a reseller account…

    I didn’t realize you could backlist a site. Maybe google gives you a visual not after you reach a certain amount a day but after a certain amount of advertisers backlist you. Though, in reality they probably have an algorithm that includes several variables in order to decide if they should flag your account or not.

    @JamestheJust on Elance
    Thanks for the suggestion James. I emailed them back and lets see if what is going to be their reply.
    On another note, I was playing with template design with x-site pro and using dynamic menus, it can actually look like a WP site pretty neat. I’m going to test this template also and see what happens…

  20. April 29th, 2010 at 23:53 | #20

    As a suggestion, maybe you can work out some kind of a deal… after all, you know how to get on the first page of google. That must be worth something. There must be statutes that cover this sort of thing.

  21. April 29th, 2010 at 23:57 | #21

    Try the law library if you don’t want to hire an attorney just yet. That’s all the lawyers do anyway. Mine always sends me ‘cuz he doesn’t like to do the grunt work.

    At least you will know where you stand.

    April 30th, 2010 at 04:11 | #22

    I think hiring a lawyer over a site that earns at most $100 a month(?) is a little over the top.

    I’m pretty sure they have no legal ground to make you give them the domain however. All they can do is give you a cease and desist and force you to take it down.

    Then again, I’m not a lawyer.

  23. April 30th, 2010 at 04:43 | #23

    Hey Mike,

    Great numbers men. you are definitely an inspiritation for us, your dedication says a lot about where you want to go. quick 2 questions.

    I know that you outsource most or all of the article writing, and I am starting to do that as well, is just not possible to control every aspect of this business. Now in regards to the site creation (keyword research, content and putting them up) do you do all by yourself? I would assume so, just to protect your niches and even thought human rewrite is pretty darn good, the content of the snipets are sacred thus demanding your own attention.

    second, have you ever tried your hand at CPA? don’t know much about it, but most of the people that does it, swears by it saying that is better than anything..

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    lol, ya…would be nice to see an increase.


    haha, np…there’s a new Nightmare on Elm Street out now..


    Hann, I won’t be answering all those questions, all I’ll say is that I’m going to spend less time building sites and more time beefing up the ones I already have.

    @Kai Lo

    Hey, my progress is on the previous day’s earnings..


    For the inner page, you want to pick it like you would for any other page..except I go as low as 300 searches/month. Also at times I can’t find a good kw, in that case I just pick any old one with no intention of ranking for it to meet my quota. At the least it will pull long tail traffic.

    @ganhe dinheiro online

    Thanks man..

    I outsource all article writing these days…as far as keyword research and putting the content up though, i do that on my own..

    I did do CPA almost a year and a half ago, made $100/day on Youtube and another $100/day with Classified ads. I stopped and decided to setup a more solid business which generated more passive income. But ya, CPA is damn good, easier to get sales than with CB.

    @Kai Lo
    about the gatorade bottle. If it was considered a junk site by google, why didn’t they deindex it? Why just ban the adsense account? My theory:

    – his adsense account was banned because he broke the TOS = clicked his ads, encouraged others to do so etc etc
    – why are lots of people complaining about sites that have been deindexed? = has anyone actually seen an example site that was deindexed? I don’t think so… my conclusion is that anyone who had their site indexed was involved in dodgy practices, or had spun/duplicate type content. I will believe this until i see an example of a site that has been deindexed.

    I think if you simply write relevant content about the keyword, you are safe, no matter how helpful it is. Who is to say what someone wants when they search for something? Just because a guy searches for gatorade bottles, it doesn’t mean he wants to buy them.

    The internet is far too big for google to become the quality police, as long as you dont do anything naughty, I would not worry. If you are generating clicks that convert, then everyone is happy.

  26. April 30th, 2010 at 18:09 | #26

    What is CPA?

    Also, I know this has been answered previously but I cannot find it-Do you guys set up multiple account through hostgator and google? Are you allowed to do that w/ your ads3nse accounts?

  27. Josh
    April 30th, 2010 at 18:27 | #27


    CPA is cost per action. Its some form of affiliate program. I don’t know much about how it actually works though

    Making multiple adsense accounts breaks the TOS(if I recall correctly) but you can do it by setting up a LLC and renting a mailbox then applying to google. Other people do it just by setting up an account for one of their friends or family members(though I imagine this can create tax problems).

  28. April 30th, 2010 at 19:08 | #28

    CPA would be differentiated from PPC in that PPC = $ = click. CPA = $ = action, usually a sale of some item, or signing up to an opt-in list or service, rather (Cost Per Leads)…

    Commission Junction, Shareasale, even Amazon and Ebay are examples. There are tons of those services out there, and believe me: they work. The thing is, it requires more work/pre-sale strategy to close a sale vs. the click on the only shiny object on the page (the PPC ad).
