Day 36 – It's Time To Kick Ass And Chew Bubble Gum And I'm All Out Of Gum

June 10th, 2009

OK, so I’ve spent a lot of time today researching into different things I could be trying out and I’ve decided on what I’m going to be doing next.  I actually found 2 things I could potentially focus my attention on:

#1.  Building Hubs For Adsense

The idea for this comes from Court’s 100 Hubs in 30 days challenge at the Keyword Academy.  I’m sure you’ve all seen it by now, but in case you have not, here it is:


What I’m going to be doing is finding keywords that I’ll be able to rank for that have a high CPC and good amount of searches, then create Hubs for these keywords.  I will then interlink my related hubs and eventually when they’re all build, work on building backlinks to them.

The main way I’ll be building backlinks to these hubs I’m thinking is through runs of UAW and/or using Steve’s backlinks to create 10-11 hub backlinks at a time via site blogrolls.

There is a revenue share of 60/40 here, with 60% of the adsense impressions going to YOU, so by piggybacking off of the authority of Hubpages and building backlinks to them, you can make some good rankings in google and then earn yourself some good amounts of Adsense money.  You can also put in Ebay or Amazon ads and potentially earn some comissions from big ticket items.

Now, the second idea I had was:

#2. Angela’s GoArticle + Backlinking Technique

If you haven’t heard of this one, find out more about it here:


Basically the idea is to post articles up on GoArticles(which get IMMEDIATELY posted, there’s no waiting involved), then begin building backlinks to them so they rank up on page 1 of Google.  Apparently GoArticle articles are more responsive to backlinking attempts, more so than EzineArticles.  Not only this, but you can put links in the article in the body and you can link directly to the affiliate sales page!  Angela mentions that she has often put up an article, done a backlinking run through one of her packets(30 backlinks), then woken up the next day to see the article on page 1.

After thinking it over, I’ve decided I’m going to do BOTH of these approaches.  Building sniper sites is an amazing way of making money, and I’m so glad I was able to find something that actually works, however I do believe at the same time that there is a better way of getting this done…I don’t want to have to build 200 Sniper Sites to only get 2k/month…Granted that’s nothing to scoff at, however, I believe there are other methods that will be even more effective and with less out of pocket expense (not that I wouldn’t pay 2k/year for 200 domains in order to earn 24k/year)….

It will be interesting to see how my sniper sites end up doing as they age and as UAW continues to build backlinks for them, maybe they will improve and bring in more $$, who knows?

In the meantime, I’m going to be trying these 2 techniques…

I’m going to give each technique a fair shot…

Already today I have decided that instead of making adsense sniper sites out of the 19 keywords I recently found, I’ll use those keywords to make Hubpages.  I’ve so far come up with a swipe file for me to use for material to write up these hubs and I’ve written up 2 600-700 word articles so far for 2 of the keywords.

When I get around to using Angela’s technique, I’m probably going to start by just using some of my existing Ezine Articles and posting them over to GoArticles so I can build backlinks to them over there.  Angela has mentioned this should work perfectly fine…that you do not have to come up with new content all together.  Whatever has the most/best backlinks will end up ranking higher.

By the way, I’m very much past the whole not being able to own all your money making web properties…this is what stopped me from trying something like this before.  All that matters is what works and what puts money in the bank account.  I’m going to keep the # of hubpages per account to maybe 10-30 per account, but I’m not going to worry about any of them getting shut down..I’m not putting all my eggs in 1 basket…Too often fear stops people from taking action, as long as the overall trend is an increase in my bank account, that’s all that matters…

Earnings For Today:

  • $54.25 – 2 Sales, $27.12, $27.13 from the main sniper site niche
  • Adsense = $10.63 – I believe this is my biggest Adsense day so far…Adsense income seems to have gone up ever since the Google PR update
  • Hops = 446




George of Google Sniper recently came out with a personal coaching WSO that I’ve signed up to, I couldn’t turn that one down considering how much I had been following along with his tactics and considering I’m looking for some new direction.  I will STILL be doing the above until I FULLY learn what George and Alex have to teach and how to implement it…


This should be interesting, I’ll report back here on how it works out , but again, I will be still doing the above in the meantime!

    I have been interested in both of these methods so this will be very interesting to watch. You are able to get things done alot quicker than I can.

    What is a swipe file?

    I will be watching this method closely as well; I have been using Squidoo to build backlinks to my main sites.

    I have built 30 so far this month; I am also using UAW to build backlinks.

    Maybe I will try Hubpages next. Let me know how it goes.

    First of all, I just want to say read the update!

    I wasn’t expecting this, but it was something I just couldn’t NOT do considering the price of it and how I’ve had some success using George’s methods already…

    It’s a 4 week long course, so until I learn enough to get up and running with that method, in the meantime I will be doing the above!

    Carrie, the swipe file is basically a Word file that contains bullet points on a topic I plan on making a website or websites about (ex: bullet points on losing weight, building muscle, forex etc..). From this, I’m better able to pull out points and use them to create my articles.

    Nice Susan, thats some good progress, I’ll keep you updated.

    Thanks Shelly,

    again read the update!

    Geez…. George looks like a baby! What a tempting offer and what a great price! If it wasn’t for my limited bandwidth, I’d be all over this.

    The WSO sales page seems misleading. It says the course is free – but the button takes you to a paypal link for $149.

    This sounds interesting; if the methods really do only take 4 weeks to make at least $1000 online. I definitely will check those videos out and decide later today!!!

    However the price is kind of steep; but if it works then it will be well worth it.

    Thanks Shelly – it was a quick parusal of the WSO. It still seems ilke alot of money, though.

    I’ve been doing much research lately (should be spending more time working, but it’s hard to do given all of the info out there). It seems that the ‘google sniper’ method is quite similar to the ‘keyword sniper’ that Court Tuttle was blogging about last year – is this what Keyword Academy is teaching?

    Hey Mike,

    My first time on your site; just looking around and you seem to be doing pretty well. I just thought I’d chime in and since you were talking about Hubpages and Goarticles, I thought I’d recommend Infobarrel.com

    It is similar to Hubpages in that you get a percentage of the Google Adsense impressions (75%), but you don’t have to have a certain quality score to place a back link in your article. The site naturally ranks very well in Google making it relatively easy to get your articles exposed to the world.

    The site can be used as a double edged sword; it is a great tool to increase your Adsense revenue while simultaneously building back links to help promote your Sniper Sites.

    Hit me up via email if you want any more information!

    Hey Ryan, interesting site, never knew about it, thanks for bringing it up!

  12. June 12th, 2009 at 15:32 | #12

    Mike, and anyone else that is doing the goarticles and Angelas backlinks…are you varying your anchor text?

  13. Mikeman
    June 12th, 2009 at 15:54 | #13

    @Jeremy Kelsall

    Jeremy, I haven’t yet gotten started on the GoArticles, however when I do I’m not planning on changing the anchor text…

    I’ve had Steve’s backlinks outsourced before and had 100 backlinks built for one of my websites using the same anchor text, and while there was some “Google Dancing” going on after building all those backlinks, which I expected, there were no adverse effects…

    After those backlinks were built, I ended up ranking #1 for my keyword for a short time, then dropped below where I ranked originally, and now finally has settled back pretty much where it was to begin with.

    @Jeremy Kelsall
    I just started this method and haven’t varied my anchor text. Wouldn’t that lower your anchor text ranking?

    Very interesting stuff Mike. I like your no-nonsesne approach to making money. Most people don’t make money beccause they don’t really want to work hard.

    I’ve been doing MMO experiements to test out different methods of generating cash online. I participated in the 100 hubs in 30 day challenge and I’m making a killing right now (I had a 45 dollar adsense day yesterday for example).

    Next month I’m thinking of launching another experiement — I’m thinking 100 click bank sniper sites in a month or 100 ebay niches. I was actually going to do exactly what you are doing now. I’m delighted to see that it’s a valid model. I think I will go with the clickbank idea.

    How much content do you have with each sniper site? I was thinking of personally posting 5 or so pages per wordpress blog, but I wouldn’t mind cutting back to a single page to save time.

    Nice Ben! That’s awesome you’re seeing those kinds of results from your hubs, I’m guessing that’s from 100 hubs?

    Ya, the Sniper Site method is currently the best way of making money online that I’ve found thus far…For each site, all I do is post a welcome message, a tip post, then I post a review of the product as my final post(I actually make this a static front page and I put it up only after my site is indexed)…often times I wind up on page 1 of google the very next day.

    Aside from that there are the basic contact us/privacy policy/about us pages, but that’s all I’ve done and that’s all I’ve ever had to do to rank on page 1.

    To help further stabilize them though, I bookmark them with Bookmarking Demon, submit their RSS feeds, create a Digg and Friendfeed backlink, then do a UAW submission..

    Yea, sounds pretty good. I have not been playing around with clickbank at all. I normally create sniper adsense sites (something like that colorado lastek eye site you saw — though that’s court’s).

    If you are ranking #1 just by having the keyword in your domain name, you must be picking ultra long tails or long tails with virtually no competition. Of course, this depends on the niche. I have ultra long tails in something like skin care and it took me 3 months of backlink work to even get onto the second page. Other sites are further than that, lol.

    What sort of exact match traffic are you targeting?

    I’m going to create 100-200 of these sniper sites next month. What I’ve found, at least with hubs, is just having a sheer number of hubs gets you a decent income. I have over 300 now, but with about 100 I was pulling in a good 7-11 bucks on income a day. But, hubs are picky. If you pick the wrong niches you won’t make anything. You also can’t treat the the way you would say a niche blog. I mean you can, but you can still make money without ranking at all. Send me an email and I’ll help you out, if you are interested in making money with hubs. With your work effort, you should be able to, in as little as a month or two.

    Haha, I like that — you give me some tips for making money with click bank, and I help you make money with hubs 😉

    Hey Ben, I’m not ranking #1 for all the keywords I choose, but I am ranking on page 1 for the vast majority of them…

    The keywords I’m ranking on page 1 for are not necessarily long tails or ultra long tails…I’m ranking VERY easily(like next day easy) for some 2 word keywords(some of which I’ve taken page 1, #1 for)…It all comes down to the amount of competition for the keyword (when checked in quotes) and the level of competition on page 1(each site’s PR & Backlinks).

    Ya 3 months to get to 2nd page is brutal…with the sniper sites I’ve made, the longest I’ve had to wait to get page 1 rankings(assuming I’ve chosen a good keyword) is a little over a week.

    100-200 sniper sites, damn, that’s a tall order…I know there are a lot of people other than George who do this and have hundreds of domain names (George has less than 50 and is getting 10k/month).

    At the moment I kinda have my hands full with the Sniper Sites and learning George & Alex’s new method, but I’d definitely be open to hearing more about your experience with the hub method :> …I’ll send you an e-mail..

    Yea, I know there feeling. I have a bunch of experients to do, but I’m currently so busy with my hub page experiment. Next month I hope to get going on the sniper click bank thing.

    What sort of layout do you use for sniper sites? Simple picture with text and a few links to clickbanks for that product or a sort of BAN’s style list of 5/4 links + pictures to different products in a niche?

    I’ve heard a lot of people use the click bank market place to find the products to promote? I usually just think of a niche then find products in it — I don’t like trying to pick out products that another 100k people are looking at too..

    Thanks for the tips!

    For my sniper sites I’ve been using a simple theme, nothing too flashy…George suggests just the basic WordPress theme, so if in doubt use that.

    I’ve been doing it a bit different from George in that I’ve been making the review of the product as a static front page so that it is always displayed when reaching the main domain. The welcome post and tip post are only accessible through the side menu.

    I also as Georoge has done, put a picture up on a column on the right side of the screen with a brief description of that person and their troubles(depending on the product being sold)..

    As far as links to the CB product, I have 3 links…one at the beginning, one in the middle, one at the end..they’re all long, bolded and stand out.

    Thus far I’ve only been promoting Clickbank products because I like seeing the bars get longer and longer as I grow my business:>

    BTW, check your e-mail

    Ya Ben, I sent it there, check your spam..

    As far as Clickbank gravity, a low gravity for a clickbank product just means that not that many people are promoting it and thus not that many people are earning a commission…Low gravity doesn’t correlate to low levels of competition.

    I’m guessing you mean marketing products in obscure niches where because it’s so obscure the CB product has low gravity? I usually go for products that have at least a gravity of 50. But if you know how to spot a good converting landing page, even if a product has a low gravity, you can still happen across one which you can make good money off of, it’s just you’re taking more of a gamble as you don’t have the social proof to back up the profitability of that product.

  22. September 4th, 2009 at 17:41 | #22

    Nice methods man. I want to try those too. I heard infobarrel is another good one like hubpages. I don’t know if you want me to link you but I know makemoneyonlinewithseo.com is doing like $100/day with hubpages adsense. Not bad at all for being residual income.

    It’s nice you have your sniper sites already working because that’s also residual and you’ll just keep getting money from it.
