Day 56 – Hello New Visitors, Yes, I see You :>

June 30th, 2009
I See You, And So Does This Guy And His Cronies

I See You, And So Does This Guy And His Cronies

Just wanted to say that I’ve noticed over the last few days I’ve been getting double the normal visitors over here off of the Warrior Forum, but I haven’t heard from you guys and girls, don’t be afraid to comment or ask questions here :>

I initially intended for this to just be a small community site, full of info, charting my progress, but if more people can find value with the site, then all the better.

Today I just got back 3 of the 11 articles I ordered off of GetArticlesDone.com … My first impression was that the articles were better than I expected.  I only paid $7.99 for each UAW article, which in truth is actually 3 articles, so that breaks down to $2.66 per article.

I could tell that the articles were written by someone who had a good grasp of the English language.  There were a few spelling errors, ex:

“optimised” vs “optimized”, “maximising” instead of “maximizing”…but that was easily fixed in a few seconds in word.

Other than that, there were maybe 2 or 3 grammatical issues per article, which didn’t take me more than a few seconds to fix.

One thing though, I ordered the 300+ word UAW articles and got back an article with 6 paragraphs.  UAW suggests you have a minimum of 8, so it can do it’s thing, however, you can still submit to UAW with 6 paragraph articles.  Also, I noticed that the keyword was not used in the article, only in the title, so I had to go and add it 3x.

Next time I suppose you need to spell this stuff out in the instructions.  But again, overall, the quality of English is much better than some of the other articles I’ve seen where you can clearly tell it’s not the writer’s native tongue, I’ll probably be using these guys again but will reserve my final judgment when I get all my articles.

In other news, today I put up a new website in my main sniper niche, it was something I needed to research a bit so it took me longer than usual.  I also submitted 2 of the 3 UAW articles I ordered.

Also, I wanted to add that I noticed that Site#1 has increased in page rank to PR2 and it has also gotten 1.5k more visitors over last month…near the beginning of this month I submitted it to 400+ directories at ArticleAware.com, it seems like it paid off.

Oh, and the SENuke submissions I did, they were for some sites that I had knocked out of the rankings (ex: keyword.org got knocked off of page 1 of Google by keyword.net).  The submissions didn’t seem to have any effect on rankings as the sites didn’t pop back up on Google (I can’t even see them in page 2,3 etc..).  perhaps if I had run them on the site which is currently ranking on page 1 I’d have seen some that site move up.
Earnings For Today:
  • $45.84, 1 sale for the main sniper site niche = $25.48, 1 sale for site #1$20.36
  • Adsense = $5.51 – I noticed a BIG chunk of this came from one of the 10 hubpages I created a couple weeks ago.  It seems like it took 2 weeks for the hubs to get to the point where they could earn me money from adsense, and in the last 9 days, well, I can’t say how much I’ve earned, however,I will say if I extrapolate this, if I had made 100 sites, I’d be getting around an extra $100/month, and I’m sure that number would go up as the sites start ranking higher since the ones bringing in this money are only on page 2-3 of Google.
  • Hops = 475 (they’re back up today)

    Morning Mike, yeah, I saw someone had linked to you on a G. sniper thread on the Warrior Forum the other day. I still love following along and watching your success. It’s great to see your numbers continue to climb.

    uh, Mike I think that was my link 🙂

    ….I figured it was such a good blog it ought to get more attention. also, after I did it, I was curious to see if you noticed any difference in traffic.

    @Bruce

    Haha, ya no prob Bruce :> Ya, this blog was getting 150 visitors/day, now it’s up to 300/day..

    But I never created this blog to get tons of traffic or get sales, but more as just a community to talk and ask questions, share findings, that sort of thing…

    LOL like the picture! Glad to hear GetArticlesDone was decent quality. I’ve been considering trying them out – especially for UAW. What a bargain.

    Hi Mike,

    I am a Google sniper follower as well and really enjoying following your journey. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work.

    Kind regards,

    @Sara

    Haha! Ya, GetArticlesDone is pretty good, I’m quite satisfied with the work they’ve done and I think I’ll be using them from now on to automate my backlink building a bit more…it feels good to not have to think about writing those UAW articles.

    If you wanted to, you could even just submit those as articles to Ezinearticles instead of UAW..if you don’t get the “Rush” delivery, it breaks down to only $2.33 for each article since you get 3 articles for every UAW order you make..

    @Andrew

    Hey Andrew, thanks for responding :> Good to know who’s on board.

    Hi Mike, just found the site and I’m catching up with all your efforts..inspiring is too weak a word for it all.

    Just had to comment that in the “Queen’s own country” and several others we use the s instead of the z in some words 🙂

    Gotta agree with Martin on the inspiration. Found your site a couple of weeks ago. I’ve got twenty sites up as of today and a zillion articles into uaw (some for my EBay Sites) as of today. Hope you enjoy that UAW commiss, you’ve earned it with such an inspiring and open site.
