Day 63 – Long And Intense Days

Please Do Not Laugh, I Iz A He-Man

Please Do Not Laugh, I Iz A He-Man

I’ve really been going at it hard the past few days….I’ve been consistantly working about 10-12 solid hours a day, trying to get as much work as possible done so that I can completely master this whole living off of online income deal :>

So now that the switch has been flipped, I feel like I’ve become a workaholic, this is what I did today:

  • Wrote up 5 extra hubs to reach a total of 10 hubs(I was 5 hubs behind from the previous day)
  • Submitted the 10 total hubs to hubpages, bringing the total # of hubs online to 30
  • Took my last outsourced UAW article and posted that up
  • Posted up the final review post on 2 of my sniper sites that were indexed from the previous day
  • Created the content for my next 2 sniper sites in Word documents
  • Created my new 2 sniepr sites for the day, bookmarked them submitted the RSS feeds
  • Tried to get as many Hubs done tody(aim was 10), got 5 more done.

I can’t wait to see how these hubs turn out for me…I had a bit more of a talk with Ben, and apparently rather than make 300 hubs in 1 month, it would be better to make 200 hubs then spend some time writing 100 Ezine Articles to backlink to all 200 hubs (2 links per Ezine Article = 1 link to each hub).Β  I was actually thinking it might be better to run UAW on them or Steve’s backlinks, but Ben was pretty adamant about that part of the equation and how effective an EzineArticle alone can be at raising a Hub’s rankings…seeing as how he’s making a good chunk of change, I’m taking his word on it…so once I hit 200, or maybe 250, I’ll start creating Ezine Articles.

I know I said I’d document my sniper site creation process earlier, but these days, ever since I started pushing myself extra hard, i haven’t had the time to write it up in a detailed manner…but to put it simply(or verbosely):

  • I register the domain
  • I “create a new account” in my WebHost Manager(WHM) for the new domain
  • Once done, I setup the FTP info for this new domain inside of Filezilla
  • I go into cPanel for the newly created domain and create an e-mail account for it (admin@domain.com) and set the mailbox size to 1000mb
  • I create an SQL Database, a User, then add the user to the database
  • I go into Firepow and proceed to install the blog, providing the site’s FTP details, domain title, keywords, tagline, description..

***Firepow installs everything, sets up the permalink structure, installs plugins, all that stuff..

  • I then login to via FTP to my site and upload a few extra plugins (Smart Update Pinger, Statpress, Feedburner, Evermore)
  • I create my cloaked links via Ninja Link Cloaker and upload them through FTP
  • I upload my theme of choice
  • I login to my blog and change settings in the AllInOne plugin, XML Sitemap plugin and enter in a list of places to ping after each post is made under “writing” in the WP Settings
  • I enable the theme and change the footer to get rid of the theme’s links
  • I add a text widget with my persona I created (a pic + text) as well as a categories and recent posts widget..
  • I add a banner to my aff program being promoted to appear on the sidebar
  • I put up the about us/contact/privacy policy pages
  • I put up the first welcome post
  • I put up the tip post

Promotion:

  • I submit the website to Digg.com
  • I submit the website to Friendfeed.com
  • I create a Feedburner RSS Feed and hook that into my site via the Feedburner plugin
  • I submit the site via Bookmarking Demon to a load of Bookmarking sites
  • I submit the RSS feed via Firepow/RSS Submit/RSSBot/SENuke
  • I wait until the next day when I usually wind up on the first page of Google for the keyword
  • I post up a final page with is my story/review of the product page and place 3 links in, beginning middle and end.
  • I make that page a “static page” through settings – reading in my blogs WordPress account

Thats it!

I probably left out some stuff like enabling the plugins and stuff, but that’s pretty much it..

Earnings For Today:

  • $105.49 – 3 sales from sniper sites in the main sniper niche(2 of them from some relatively newly created sniper sites), $27.12, $27.12, $26.33, & 1 sale for another sniper site in a different niche = $24.92
  • Adsense = $4.73
  • 588 hops

    Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to give a breakdown of your method. I’ve been sitting on a sniper site waiting to start it just so I could read this πŸ™‚

    @Lisa

    Hey NP Lisa, glad it helped..

    Do you prefer RSS Submit or RSS Bot? They both do the same thing. I’m thinking that you probably create multiple feeds and use both programs at once…just a thought πŸ™‚

    @David

    Hey Dave, I honestly don’t have a preference as I use them both…they’re both good programs.

    It doesn’t take much effort for me to submit an RSS feed to both at the same time, I get my RSS feed submitted to more places that way.

    Mike,

    Great summary of what you do. Do you submit both a feedburner feed as well as the regular wordpress feed for each site to rssbot and rss submit? Are you testing out new niches with hubpages?

    Debbie, I’m just submitting 1 RSS feed, the feedburner feed…If I try submitting the regular WordPress feed as well, at least in Firepow, I get a msg telling me that the feed has already been submitted.

    Right now I’m doing about 20 hubs per niche…I’ll be doing it at 10-20 per niche to spread things out, unless I find a niche that is just gold and I know for sure I’ll be ranking for tons of keywords.

    Nothing to laugh about that picture.

    It is completely normal. Looks sharp.
    I know I’m impressed. Thanks for improving the internet, Mike!

    haha, I can’t believe that guy is serious about that costume :> And thanks man..

    @Isak

    Ya, Isak, I’m just doing 3 posts, that’s it!

  11. July 8th, 2009 at 02:05 | #11

    thanks.
    what about later, dΓΈ you normally add more content after a while?

    i usually add around 5-6 posts.

    @isak

    Nope, no more content is needed, just backlinks after that.

  13. July 8th, 2009 at 07:56 | #13

    Ok. Thanks.

  14. July 8th, 2009 at 09:53 | #14

    Mike, 1 more question.

    When you write your TIPS post, do you write it around your main keyword or a related one?

  15. Mikeman

    @Isak

    Make your first post a welcome post, so if your site is called “acnetreatments.org” you’ll Make the post title “Welcome to Acne Treatments”

    By doing this, you can end up getting not only your main domain ranked, but also a supplemental ranking underneath it with your welcome post, this way you can potentially take 2 spots on page 1.

    As for the tip post, I just make that on some keyword closely related to the domain name that I can potentially rank for.

    Great post πŸ˜‰ bookmarked. I will def. push myself harder knowing I wouldn’t be the only one working a hard 10-12 hour day. Congrats man. You know how to treat it like a job.

    One more: You are using firepow for content then? A little confused ’cause you talk about just having a post or two or three for a site but here you mention using firepow. Or do you use firepow for other functions rather than auto-content.
    thx!

    @chaChing

    Hey man, ya, I made this post long ago…I’m doing something different now.

    But when I was doing this, I used Firepow to install my blogs, not to generate content… The 3 posts per site I created for my Clickbank snipers were written by me. 1 review post and 2 tip posts.
