Day 65 – 10 More Days of Snipers + 50 Hubs Done

Ready Wing Damaged...

Ok, so today I was able to get 2 more sniper sites done..I also posted up the review pages for the sniper sites I created yesterday, which BTW were both indexed on page 1 today…I also was able to write up 10 more hubs.  These hubs are in a new niche and I have done the keyword research for another 10 hubs for tomorrow.  I have yet to post the hubs up though.  This now brings my total hubs to 50.

Now I mentioned before that I had heard one of the keys to making these hubs profitable via adsense is linking to them with Ezine Articles, howver in speaking with Ben who has been successful with Court’s 100 hub challenge, he mentioned Infobarrel being another place to use for backlinks to the hubs.  Now the benefit of using Infobarrel is that Infobarrel allows adsense income sharing as well at 75%.  Now it doesn’t have as good ad placement as Hubpages and it doesn’t have quite the domain strength in the search engines, however it still is quite a strong link.

By using Infobarels to link to my Hubpages, I can both strengthen my Hubpages while earning money off the Infobarels as well.  Seems like an interesting concept.   Ben mentioned he’d be doing this if he could start over, so I’ll give it a try once I’ve gotten around 200 hubs done.

Now aside from the hubs, I’ve got about 20 more sniper sites to make which will take me around 10 days, after which I’ll have exhausted all my keywords in my main sniper niche.  I think after that I’m going to take a break from sniper site creation….I’ll build backlinks to all of those through UAW(which I’ll outsource), then I’ll go full on into building hubs and Infobarels.

Ben has mentioned his 100 Infobarels which have no backlinks yield $5-10/day and that he earns about $12/day per 100 hubs…his figures might have changed since his income is going up, but those numbers look good to me.  Can’t wait to see what happens with this..

Earnings For Today:

  • 3 sales = $77.09 – 2 sniper site sales in the main sniper niche = $27.12, $27.13, 1 Sale for Site #3 = $22.84
  • Adsense = $5.73
  • Hops = 607

    Hey Mike!

    I just ran across this post and wanted to let you know that if you ever need any help with your Hubs or have any questions regarding HubPages, you can shoot me an email and I’ll help you out. Good to see that you’re finding some early success with your Hubs, which is great because they’re only going to gain more authority as time goes on!

    Happy Hubbing and let me know if you ever need anything —

    Hey Ryan, thanks for the offer man, much appreciated! :>

    Awesome to see Ryan pop by!

    You have totally got me excited about Hubbing, Mike. I failed with my attempt on Tuesday to get 7 hubs up but I got 6 up. Yesterday I got totally distracted by one of my Youtube health friends who was chatting with me in IM most of the day and sending me links that I was only able to research new keywords for hubs I was suppose to create for the day and I only got 4 hubs up. So now I am at 10 in 2 days.

    If hubpages works out for me as I plan for it, then I am going to talk my sister into it and possibly my mom since it’s totally free to do. No domain buying, no special software just pure keyword research and good ol’ fashioned writing *blech*.

    Mike, I’m really impressed with all the hard work you’re doing. Very few people, including myself, spend enough time actually working day in and day out. You picked some really crazy competitive niches, yet you still were able to find a way to sneak in and make money.

    Your keyword research, the writing you do on your sites, and the many late nights building all of it is unbelievable. Very very impressive!

    Hey Sara,

    Ya, I get distracted too, no big deal…in the end though I do my best to get the work done, even if I have to stay up way late..

    I think the key to getting this thing working is going to be doing the backlinking to the hubs from Ezine or Infobarrel..


    Rob thanks man, but I got to tell you, this is what I was afraid of happening, being looked up and opening myself up to the possibility of people jumping into my niches.

    I suppose it was inevitable..but I’m no guru, making 10k/month and am putting this info up for free..I hope this isn’t a mistake, the last thing I want is for it to bite me in the ass.

    I know what you mean. Shoemoney stop sharing his sites altogether for that reason. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to hide your niches once you start seeing some success. Once you start ranking, there are hundreds of seo tools and thousands of marketers seeing your sites and analyzing them.

    I learned a long time ago it doesn’t matter how much competition there is. I ran a really long thread on the dp forum where I gave my domain, keywords, what I was bidding, etc… I had some people just copy my website and try to duplicate exactly what I do. I even gave my own sister my blueprint. For whatever reason, even she couldn’t duplicate my success, not even close. She gave up.

    And that’s the difference, 99.9999% of the people will not do the work necessary to succeed. That’s why I’m so impressed with your results. So don’t worry about copycats and hijackers. They will fail by their very nature – which is primarily being lazy.

    I think you’ve got a good point there Rob. The key to success in this buisness is hard work and eventually to work smarter.
