Day 50 – 6 More Sites + Hubpages?

June 24th, 2009

Well, today I again got 2 more websites done…most of the websites I’ve been creating have been getting indexed the very next day, so I’ve been going back and posting up the last review page for those….

Just to refresh your memories, I registered 23 domains in my main sniper niche which are all .net’s….they are for the same keywords I’ve already targeted with .orgs.  I’ve only got 6 more of these sites to do until I’m done creating the .net versions of my already existing .org keyword domains.

I noticed today that one of my new sites I just put up has already gotten a sale today.  It  took 19 hops before getting the 1 sale, but it’s still too early to tell if my new method of writing the sales copy for all these sites is causing improved conversions, or if this is just by luck that I converted a sale so fast…will have to wait and see how my other new sites written in the same fashion do.

Aside from this, I’ve been talking with Ben a bit about Hubpages.  Ben participated in Court’s 100 hubs in 30 days challenge and was quite successful in developing a nice adsense income as a result.  I’ve gotten a  few pointers from him and am considering having another go at it with this new information.  If I can find time in between my sniper site creation, I’m going to see if I can squeeze in some Hubpages.

One thing I did today that was Hubpage related was go back to my 10 Hubpages I created and interlink my hubs a bit.  What I did was the following:

Have Hub 2 link to Hub 1

Have Hub 3 link to Hub 1 and 2

Have Hub 4 link to Hub 1,2 and 3

Have Hub 5 link to Hub 1,2,3 and 4

Have Hub 6 link to Hub 1,2,3,4 and 5

Have Hub 7 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5 and 6

Have Hub 8 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7

Have Hub 9 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8

Have Hub 10 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9

Now apparently you’re allowed only 2 external links, but there is no limit on the # of links to your own hubs.  With this backlinking method, there are only 1 way links, however the linking is not evenly distributed and Hub 10 is left with no links.  I’ll be doing this though unless I can come up with any better linking strategy between the hubs.

Another tip I got was to target keywords as low as 200 exact searches..it would certainly be a lot easier to rank for such keywords…

Earnings For Today:

  • $67.01 – 1 Sale from Site#2 $20.04, 1 Sale from a sniper site in Site#2’s niche $20.04, 1 Sale from a new site in the main sniper niche $26.93 …..(BTW, I made a total of $568.31 for the week, up from $247.54 from 4 weeks ago)
  • Adsense = $7.75
  • Hops = 512

    Hi Mike,
    I thought of emailing you this but thought it would make a good tutorial.
    Would you take on a sniper site with an obscure two word illness name that has two click bank products? Here are the stats: keyword of the illness is – “Word1 Word2” – Word1Word2.net available .com .org gone. Exact 12,100 – Phrase 27,100 – Broad 33,100 >>> Page1 – Wiki PR: 5 – PR: 4 – PR: 1 – PR: 1 – PR: 2 – PR: 3 – PR: 3 – PR: 2 – PR: 1 – PR: 1

    Does the fact that there is no call to action make it feasible? Also available is Word1Word2Treatment.org with Exact 1,600 – Phrase 1,600 – Broad 2,900

    Hey Mike,

    It’s amazing that you’ve already gotten consistent sales for such a short period you’ve started these sniper sites. I think I missed your post on your new style of writing the sales copy. Any clues how you do them now? I’m still mustering up some courage to start these sniper sites 🙂

    I’m also interested in your new sales copy. Can you say if when Ben talked about adsense and targetting low search phrases what he recommended for competition? And is the adsense you discussed with him for hubpages primarily or also for one’s own domains? My adsense has been going up so I am thinking of expanding on that. You are obviously good at pre-selling so cb looks like it works well for you.

    Hey Pete,

    First of all, it’s got a nice amount of traffic, secondly, if it’s a keyword such as “cure x” or “treat y” then even though it’s not longtail, I’d still go after it, it as it will still convert, maybe not as well as a 3 word keyword, but the traffic will make up for that.

    AS far as page 1 is concerned, I’d need to do a bit more research…I’d need to check:

    -The # of yahoo backlinks for the PR 1 sites, make sure it’s not something like 1,500, but rather something small like 200 or less.
    -check the BASE domain PR of the PR1 pages..sometimes the page is PR 1 but the base domain is PR4 or something, that would make it a slight bit more challenging.
    -Also, I’d check the competition in quotes…If it’s only 15k or around there, that would change everything…but if it’s around 50k and with those numbers, I’d be a bit cautious.

    You need to look at those PR1 sites in detail and see if they’d be easy to outrank.

    I could probably give you a more detailed answer if you came back to me with a bit more of the info I mentioned above..but considering there are 4 PR1’s on page 1, my gut is saying you can take it, even though I don’t have all the info.

    Don’t get paralyzed by doubt though..If you’re not sure you can take something but have an inkling you might be able to, just go for it, it will be a learning lesson…See it as an opportunity to learn and advance your understanding of what you can take on and what you can’t.

    That’s what I’ve done recently, I’ve gone after keywords where the competition is 200-300k in quotes because I noticed another guy with a sniper site ranking on page 1 with not many backlinks and a PR of 0…although the competition in quotes was high, the page 1 competition seemed light in this niche so I decided to buy up the domain and try it out.

    Ya JB, I also find it crazy that I’m now getting consistent sales :> As far as the change in my ad copy, most of my sniper sites in my main sniper niche weren’t done exactly as George laid out. I did them more in the form of blog posts in that, I gave them some info they were looking for, then I discounted it, then I offered a better solution.

    I also didn’t put up a pic at the side..but now for the last few sites, I’ve been giving them a bit of what they’re looking for, then going into a story of how I used this info but it wasn’t enough to fix things, then going into how I found the product and listing pros/cons at the end…

    I’m also including a pic of the “site creator” at the side.(I only neglected to do all this for THIS particular niche, for my other sniper niches I did all this).

    JB, you gotta just do it man, venture out into new territory, nothing happens otherwise! You’ve got to stop doubt/fear and just jump in to new projects, as long as you allow doubt/fear of the unknown to hold you back from taking action right away, you cannot be successful in this business.

    Debbie, I never asked Ben about the competition as that is something I already know how to handle well enough on my own..but I do recall him mentioning if you see a Web 2.0 property on page 1 like an Ezine Article that’s a good sign(you probably know about this tip already)..

    I do feel I’m good at pre-selling, however the only thing that confuses me about pre-selling at this time is how George manages $200-500 per site. But as long as I’m profiting from my efforts, that’s all that matters, it may just be the niche as I have some other sniper sites in other niches that convert well (I have a handfull of sniper sites in other niches converting at around 1:30, they just don’t get enough traffic for that to add up to $200-500/month).

    Hi Mike,
    I don’t think I was clear enough in my explanation. The domain name is only the illness itself. For example, RheumatoidArthritis.net Is that too broad to create a sniper site for or would you attempt it because of the traffic volume?

    @Peter (pacecom)

    That doesn’t sound like a keyword you could make much money off of, it’s too broad…

    As nice as the numbers are, I would look for better keywords.

    nice method of hubpages linking. how much do you buy your domain names for? You should also post the domain costs and your domain total. I’d like to see how many domains you have total and how much you spent on them if it’s not to personal.
