Day 44 – AFF Results & 100+ Websites

June 18th, 2009
Who Wins? The Saga Continues...

Who Wins? The Saga Continues...

I forgot to mention something yesterday regarding my foray into advertising for adult friend finder…I was able to get a $75 sale yesterday, however that was after spending a total of $200 for 7 days of advertising and that came on the 4th day of advertising.

It seems like this could be lucrative if you could send targeted traffic and a low enough price, or better yet, for free.. It took 125 or so unique visits to get that $75 sale.  I could spend more time with this method, searching for the best sites to advertise on so I can get the best rate of return, however I’m most likely going to stop once the 7 days are up.

Today I just built 2 more websites in my main sniper site niche…this makes for 5 sites created over the last 3 days and leaves 16 more for me to work on.  I can potentially make even more sites in this niche as I recently came across a bunch of other good keywords, all with around 8-10k searches for exact match…the only catch is with these keywords, it will be hard to provide a targeted product for them so conversions again may not be good.

I’ve been thinking one way I can get around the bad conversions is to setup an autoresponder for all these sites and start collecting e-mail addresses…by doing this I might be able to get a few more sales through an autoresponder series.  I’ll need to come up with the series of msgs and a free guide though.

You know, I had a little bit of a stall as far as site creation goes as I reached the 100 site mark, however I feel that has now passed…I’m prepared now to head on over to 200 total websites.

As far as the profitability of my main sniper niche is concerned, it seems to be producing a total of around $700/month rather than $500, this is coming from *36* sites, 25 sales and around 8,800 hops a month O_o

It may be a lot of sites to build to get that kind of income, but they’re small sites that don’t take much time to build… I’m just glad I’ve found a repeatable process that if I keep doing can lead to a full time income.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB Sales = $100.14 – 3 sales from the main sniper niche: $16.33, $16.31, $27.12, 2 Sales for Site #2 = $20.04, $20.04
  • Adsense = $4.88
  • Hops = 584

Day 42 – Back To Site Creation

June 16th, 2009
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

Day 39 – GoArticles + AFF

June 13th, 2009

So today I got started with that whole Adult Friend Finder thing.  I actually went and spent $200 worth in advertising.  I advertised on 1 adult site which estimates for the ad space I got that I’ll get around 400 clicks a day(this cost me around $40) and on another website I advertised where it estimates I’ll get 1100 clicks a day($160)..

The thing is, since going live, I can see that my ads have gotten many thousands of impressions, however the number of accumulated clicks to my website (which promotes Adult Friend Finder) has been extremely low so far.

The ads have only been up for a few hours and I’ve gotten 37 clicks to my site, but only 8 clicks to my affiliate links :/  I’m going to need at least 3 sales to make a profit (of $25) preferably 4 for $100 considering I get $75 per paid sign-up..these ads are going to be up for 1 week, so I’ve got 7 days to do that in.

Aside from that, I decided that I’m going to spen the majority of my time now trying out Angela’s GoArticle Backlinking tactic…The reason being is that I think I will end up seeing more results for my time investment doing that than focusing on the hubs.  With the hubs, I need to create them from scratch, they need to be of good quality and they need to be 600-800 words if I’m going to play it safe..That takes quite a while to write up.

In contrast, I already have PLENTY of articles submitted to EzineArticles that I can swipe and post on GoArticles then just build backlinks to..

So today what I did was go through some of the articles I’ve submitted for one of my main authority niches (Site #4) and look for all the articles which are based on keywords that have a good amount of searches and low competition.  I found a bunch that had an average of 1-1.5k EXACT searches according to the Google Keyword Research Tool(not the best # of searches, but that’s what I had to work with), and then went ahead and pulled those articles into GoArticles.  I did this for 11 articles…

The transition took more time than I thought…I had to revise the intro paragraph a bit so I could work in a link at the top there(which links DIRECTLY to the Clickbank sales page) and I also ended up re-writing the last paragraph just a bit as well.  Lastly there were a few times I changed the title too…

I put in individual tracking id’s for EACH article.  I can see how if I keep doing this, it’s going to make things pretty messy when checking the tracking id’s in Clickbank, but I’d like to know exactly which articles are able to get hops and sales.

Funny thing while I was doing all this was that I saw a few GoArticles on page 1 and 2 of Google where the author had been doing this same method!  There were about 30 registered backlinks to the articles, potentially from Angela’s backlinks…

After I put all the 11 articles up on GoArticles, I went and used Steve Aylor’s backlinks at 15 different sites to create backlinks via each site’s blogroll.. with the blogroll(10 links) and a blog post(1 link) I was able to get 15 links to each of the 11 articles.

Tomorrow I’ll get another 15 for these and then look for 11 more articles to do the same thing to.

Earnings For Today:

  • $80.62 (2 Sales for the main sniper site niche = $27.12, $27.12), 1 Sale for Site #1 = $26.38
  • Adsense = $1.57
  • Hops = 467

Day 38 – Work Smarter Not Harder

June 12th, 2009

Part 2 of “Who Wins?”

First of all before I go on, I got a lot of traffic here ever since the controversy over Jeremy Kelsall’s testimonial..I noticed that Jeremy came in and replied back to it but it was caught in my spam filter.  Therefore to help set things straight for him, if you haven’t seen his response, you can find it here: Proof Jeremy didn’t fake a testimonial.

Now, as far as what the order of the day was…as you know I’ve been looking into ways to leverage the money I’m generating online now so that I can multiply my income even further.  To that end, I spent most of my time today looking into a method involving purchasing advertising space on adult sites and funnelling that traffic towards Adult Friend Finder which offers $75 per sign-up.

I’ve done everything to set things up except pay for the advertising, I think I’m going to venture out and give it a shot though, will be an interesting experiment (If you’re wondering, I got the idea from a WSO by Bakai)..

Aside from that, I didn’t get quite as much done as I had planned.  I bookmarked 4 more of my Hubpages and I created and posted up 3 more Hubpages.  I now have 10 Hubpages up.  I’ve gotten 37 visits to all my hubs in total, however this is probably just traffic from within Hubpages…My author rating is now 37 (it’s been climbing up from 0) and each of my articles are climbing up in rating as well (72,69,63,61,58,57,55,50,50,50).

Earnings For Today:

  • 4 Sales = $96.51 (2 Sales for Site #1 – $20.36 + $26.19, 1 Sale for the main sniper site – $27.12, 1 Sale for Site #3 – $22.84)  – I like the way the sales are going as of late
  • Adsense = $2.52
  • Hops = 476
