Day 378 – Updated Read Me File

Late update,  for this past Monday, been busy ..I actually spent my free time working on this site.  I decided to add a bit more to the Read Me page at the top of this site.

What I did was:

-Add in the end of month totals from Jan – April 2010

-Added 7 extra posts to the end of part 2 in the read me (Useful/Interesting Posts)

-Added a new section called “part 4 – Screenshots of Clickbank & Adsense Income” with 32 posts

-Added a new section called “part 5 – Misc Posts”

The biggest change was the addition of Part 4…So if you’re the type that is more visual, or just likes to see screenshots taken of Clickbank/Adsense earnings, you may want to check out part 4 of the readme right here. I often would take screenshots when I reached a new milestone, so you will be able to go through and see visually when I reached most of my Clickbank and Adsense income milestones through that.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Adsense = $140.77 (nice adsense day)

    How often does Google send you a check? Do they do ETF payment?

    Just curious – I really love reading your stuff – good good stuff!

    Thanks alot Mike! I really appreciate your blog! My adsense income is growing thanks to your informative blog.

    Do you ever put videos in your sites? I find a sniper with several YT videos..I was thinking of adding my own videos made with camtasia and uploading them to YT also..

    Also do you ever link your sites together>? I made a links page on 20 of my sites and added my own sites..my adsense income has increase possibly as a result..what do you think>?

    Monthly if you’re over $100 in that month, otherwise it carries over, and if you mean EFT payment – yeah, they do that as well. What’s really cool is that when Googl3 verifies your account, they actually put about $1 and change *in there* so you can then verify that’s your checking acct.

    (sorry, just wanted to chime in here!)

    Mike I do not have time for this! Now I have to go and read the ‘Read Me’ section, because I know you have useful info in there that I want to see. WTG now I will be behind! 😉

    np man..


    Hey thanks Steve :> Ya, James answered that, I get mine via direct deposit.


    Good to know :> I don’t put videos on any of my sites, but it’s an idea if you’re looking to beef up your site content a bit more.

    And no, I don’t link any of my sites together..I couldn’t comment on that as I don’t practice it, but I have seen instances in other people’s networks where it seems to have worked for them.


    My plan worked.

    Good read.. I wanted to get your opinion on a topic that’s been nagging me for a few days since I caught wind of it. It’s about Google’s stance towards MFA sites.

    Now there’s no official statement made by Google (correct me if I’m wrong) but I have been reading about first-hand reports of people who made lots of MFA sites with some success (>$100/day) and around that threshold they experienced a massive G sandboxing of their sites which knocked a LOT of their sites in rankings and dropped earnings down to $10-$20 a day.

    I have no idea if this is legit or not. Seems scary if it is. Obviously hasn’t happened to you and I hope it never does. One thing I noted in my research was they look at a lot of variables but they are VERY good at sniffing out if you are making purely MFA sites and have a tendency to sandbox those sites once you’re around the $100/day mark.

    Different story for authority sites, but who knows where the cutoff is. 3 pages of content, 10, 30? Sorry for the ramble, just wanted to see if you’ve heard/witnessed this.

    I do like that you diversify into CB snipers too – wonder if that would fall under G’s umbrella if they do a deep dive into your site list but I am guessing no since they probably just check out all the adsense sites.

    Keep up the killer work – real asset to the IM community sir!

    Hey Jon, tnx man. Ya, I talked about this a while back…you can find it if you search my site for “grizzly’s post”.

    Google is de-indexing networks, but my guess is the inspections are triggered automatically by suspicious activity.. ex: going from $0 – $100/day in 3 months with your adsense account.

    I’ve also heard stories of people with 1k+ word posts and 30 page sites getting de-indexed, so who knows what their criteria is.
