Day 73 – Developing A New System

July 17th, 2009


Fredryk Phox

You know, one of the things I’ve realized which was key to me getting all the work I got done with the Sniper sites was developing a system to follow each day…I would set an expectation for what needed to be done for the day and then I’d have checkpoints throughout the day where I would assess how far along I’ve come to reaching my daily goals.

So for instance, near the end when I was making 2 Sniper Sites a day and 10 hubs, this is the schedule I setup for myself (Note: I work late)

  • Get content for all sniper sites written up in Word format by 9:00pm
  • From 9-12am put up the 2 Sniper sites and promote them (BMD, RSS etc..)
  • From 12am-4 or 5am work on writing up 10 Word docs for hub content  & then spend 1 hour uploading that to Hubpages and interlinking the Hubs

I knew it would take me around 1 hour to write up the content for each Sniper site, so around 6-7pm I realized it was time to get down to business…

Then when I had written the content by 9, I knew it would take me around 1 hour for each site to be created, setup with posts and promoted, so I knew that if it hit 10pm it was time to get down to business once again…

Finally, I knew that it would take me 1 hour to write 4 articles for hubs, and thus 2 1/2 articles to write the hubs and another 1 hour to submit them and interlink them….So again, I knew that by 1 or 1:30am I needed to buckle down.

The main goal for the day, as well as all the little checkpoints helped keep me on track and getting things done…As time went on, I changed those expectations and pushed myself harder to the point I made 3, 4 and then 6 sniper sites in a day..This is how I did it, this plus getting into the zone and once in the zone, writing non-stop and taking advantage of it.

SO…

Now that I’m making hubs full-time, I’ve had to figure out a whole new system to go by..I’m still working on it, but what I do know at this point is that I’m setting the goal of AT LEAST 20 hubs written and uploaded each day.  If I can maintain this, I will have 600 hubs by the end of the month.

Now seeing as how I’m going to be entering so many different niches for the hubs, I’ve needed to come up with a strategy for how I’m going to write for so many different topics.  I realized that if I try to write on multiple topics in the same day, I will not be able to enter the zone as easily because I’ll have my mind on 2 different subjects.

So I realized I’d need to work on only 1 niche each day…and as for how to write for all these niches I know little about, I’m using a tactic I used a long time ago to create my authority sites, the “Swipe File”

Basically, I go into Ezine Articles, and search for “my niche + tips” and get back a ton of Ezine Articles with nicely laid out tips I can grab.  I take them, copy and paste them into a Word file, until I have a massive list of points to draw from.  I also go and pull points from regular websites as well…

Once I’ve go a large enough swipe file with enough different points, I then write my hubs, often times picking 3 or 4 points to talk about per hub article….

Now today, I was writing on a topic that I found a good # of points for and a topic which I just found easy to write for and this is what happened while using the swipe file:

As you can see, from about 11:20-2:34 I was able to get 15 450-500 word hubs completed in Word docs…that’s about 5 hubs an hour.  A big reason for that speed was due to the swipe file…other things that played a role were the fact that I found the niche easy to write for and I got into the zone…

Earnings For Today:

  • $26.18 from Site #1
  • Adsense = $5.86 (Some Hubpage earnings in there)
  • 548 hops

Day 60 – Outsourcing Update + Public Enemies

July 4th, 2009

I’m pretty tired today, just got back from going out and seeing Public Enemies…was a great movie with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, a story about John Dillinger, set in the 1930’s..  Was really well done, you really felt you were in that time period, everything was duplicated so well, down to the smallest detail, unlike any other movie I’ve seen in that sense.  The movie was given 8.4(+ #215 of the top 250 movies of all time) on IMDB..

Well, I got home late, and all I had done before going out tonight was submit 2 of my UAW articles…Now, one thing I noticed was that my articles were given to me in batches since I ordered them, and it looks like some of my later batches were written by an author who clearly does not speak English as a first language…a stark contrast to the first few articles I got which were great.

So, this time around, rather than taking less than 2 min to revise ALL the articles, it took me about 5-6 minutes PER article!  I also had to add a bit to some of the paragraphs as they had them as just 1 or 2 sentences sometimes.  All in all though, this still saves me time as well as effort and it is done at a VERY cheap price, so given that, I’m STILL going to keep using them.

When I got home I ended up submitting another 2 UAW submissions (each submission builds backlinks for 2 of my sniper sites), and now I only have 1 more UAW submission to do to finish up the backlinking to about 22 of my newest sites.  I’ll probably be ordering some more articles either today, or tomorrow for the latest sites, as well as about 3-4 sites I made a long while back that I never got around to promoting via UAW…

I’m pretty tired right now so I’ll wrap it up there.

Earnings For Today:

  • $53.56 – 2 sales from sniper sites in my main sniper niche = $27.12, $26.44
  • Adsense = $2.95
  • Hops = 450

Day 54 – I Outsourced The UAW Articles

June 28th, 2009
Dr. Strange Love

Dr. Strange Love

So today, I began work on writing my UAW articles, I actually wrote and submitted 1 article which would build backlinks for 2 of my sites…that left me to create 11 more UAW Articles (1 for every 2 of my sites to build backlinks to, since I put in 2 links in each UAW submission)…

But before going on to work on some more, I recalled that earlier in the day I was talking to Debbie and she had mentioned a site, in passing, at which you can outsource UAW article writing…I’m not sure of the efficacy or quality of the work done here, but at the price that was being offered, I decided to give it a try…The site BTW is GetArticlesDone.com …

I ordered 11 UAW Articles as follows:

300+ words (6+ paragraphs, 3 articles total): $6.95

Then I paid an extra buck for each one for their “Rush” turn around…  They say they will “TRY” to get it done in 24-48 hours though:

“We try all to get your articles done within 24-48 hours but can’t promise that though. Please also include some delay if you place bulk orders.”

It seems like all these article writing services can’t manage to hold hard set deadlines, I’m pretty astonished by the fact that they can’t even guarantee that when you pay extra for it.  Anyway, I’ll see how this turns out, if I’m happy with it, I’ll probably continue to outsource my UAW articles.  The whole thing cost me about $88, which is about a day and a half of my current online income, in exchange, it’s probably saving me about 2=3 days of work.  Once this work is done, I’ll then go and submit all the articles myself…

Now that the backlinking is taken care of, I’m going to begin creating sites again tomorrow..

Earnings For Today:

  • $45.52 – 1 Sale from Site#2 – $20.04, 1 Sale from a site in the main sniper niche = $25.48
  • Adsense = $2.53
  • Hops = 390
