Day 42 – Back To Site Creation

The 3rd Installment...

The 3rd Installment...

Hey, just want to say first off to anyone who was looking forward to seeing me do the Hubpages or GoArticles… like a lot of other ppl, I’m still trying to find my way in this IM game, still trying to figure out where my time is best spent…

As such, I”m testing the waters with a lot of different systems.

I can tell you that regardless of what I’m currently doing though, The one thing that will remain constant is my efforts to advance my business on a day to day basis….

There’s really not much to report regarding the 10 hubs I did…they’ve generated a total of 30-40 visits, no adsense earnings, that’s a project thats on the backburner now, I probably won’t be returning to that one…

As for GoArticles, I built 15 backlinks to 10 of the articles but have yet to see any of them rank.  Now I know Angela has stated that she’s run her packet of 30 on an article and seen it rank on page 1 the next day…I don’t know if it’s a case of me not doing enough backlinks, or if it’s the quality of Steve’s backlinks vs Angela’s or that I just need to give it more time.  Anyways, for now this is on hold, although I’ll check in now and then to see if anything happens.

As far as my foray into the Adult Friend Finder promotion…I’ve been getting 35-40 affiliate link clicks a day and I’ve paid for 7 days worth of advertising space for a total of $200…I still have no sales(which would come in at $75 a pop)…this may turn out to be an expensive lesson, but thats ok , all part of the learning process :>  I msg’d the creator of the WSO about whats going on and what I can do to improve this situation, but he didn’t reply and I sent the msg 2 days ago.

Now as for what I did today, today I pumped out another 2 sniper sites in the main sniper niche…I’m looking forward to see what happens here and hopefully I’ll see another boost in the amount of hops I get daily once I get through a few more of these sites.

I also noticed that 3 of my sniper sites I made last week in the weight loss niche have FINALLY started ranking on page 1.  It’s the longest I’ve ever had to wait for a sniper site to rank and these were low comp keywords…maybe it’s the niche?  Anyways, they’re not bringing in too many additional hops…one of them is ranked #6 on page 1 for a keyword with 1.6k searches for exact match, & 4.4k phrase (according to the Google keyword research tool), and yet it only got 10 visits and 2 hop clicks…strange.  The other 2 sites also only got 1 or 2 hops.

Today I also spent some time doing keyword research to find other keywords I can turn into sniper sites, I found 15 good ones with at least 3k searches for exact match.    I think from now on I’m going to stick to 3k searches for EXACT match to ensure I get a good # of hops for landing on the first page. (Interesting side note: I’ve found that the Google Keyword Research Tool’s exact match for searches is equal to Micro Niche Finder’s searches)

I also think that until I find some other method that I can see consistent results from and can be assured will increase my income from month to month, I’m going to keep the Sniper method as my main tactic, even if I have to make 50 sites to get $500/month increases.  I am still going to be searching around and trying additional things when I can though.

Earnings For Today:

  • $66.73 – 1 sale for the main sniper site niche = $26.65, 2 sales for sniper sites in Site #2’s niche = $20.04, $20.04
  • Adsense = $2.53
  • Hops = 529

    Hey Mike, were you not planning on trying out adsense sites then? Like the $100 dollar a day adsense thing?

    @Sara

    There are a lot of things to try out, I may try that at some point in the future, but for right now, I’m going to get through my 23 registered domains in my main sniper niche…
