Day 105 – 2nd Adsense Sniper Up

August 18th, 2009

Joe Rogan’s a thinker..

So today I got my 2nd adsense sniper up….I also noticed that my first adsense sniper ranked the very next day (I had picked an obscure niche with a decent CPC hence the quick ranking), it’s ranked near the top of page #2 though.  It’s going to take a bit of backlinking to get it up to page #1, but today I just did a UAW submission to build backlinks to my first 2 Adsense snipers.

I’ve now decided that I will be using UAW on the adsense snipers I create….I’m going to use it to backup 2 adsense snipers at a time and I’m going to put it up right after the 2nd adsense sniper is completed.

Following this, I have been toying with the notion of using SENuke as well.  I was thinking I can spend 1 hour creating spun article that’s 300 words(each sentence is spun about 4-5 times), then use that to do MULTIPLE SEnuke submissions… each time changing the anchor text or linking to differen’t internal pages to get my additional posts ranking as well.

THEN…if I really wanted to I COULD also stuff that into an automated aricle submitter for even more backlinks.  I think this is a pretty good system here…but I’m first going to start off with UAW only and see what happens.

I also spent a bit of time looking for new keywords…I found 3 thus far…I really need to spend more time finding good keywords…I find that the creation of these sites is so much easier when I can see ahead what the big picture is… ie: I know what the next 20 odd adsense snipers are going to be about…Once I can see that far ahead I’ll feel a lot more comfortable and likely be able to really start pumping these out…Having a plan is is so key..

Earnings For Today:

  • $46.42 – Site #1 & Site #2 sales
  • Hops = 268(new) / 461 (old)
  • Adsense = $10.21 (Hubs = $2.03, Infobarrel = $6.65

Day 102 – Figuring Out What To Do

August 15th, 2009

LOL Brandon DiCamillo is hilarious…

So today I just finished off my last 2 sniper sites…the last batch have not been ranking as of yet for some reason but I’ll keep tabs on them and when they do I’ll put up the final review page.

I noticed that one of my sites I put up a LONG time back was ranking page #1 and I hadn’t put up the review page for it….I just went back and posted up the review for that…these kind of things can get by you if you’re putting up a lot of websites.

Oh ya, another thing I noticed was that it looks like there is another person again who is having a go at my kw’s…This guy is now ranking #10 on page 1, below me..They used the same theme, they didn’t do the niche research since they cut and pasted the technical stuff out of my blog, then they reworded everything else…

Anyways, I’ve decided that one of the things I’m going to be doing now is backlinking some of my sniper sites up…I’m going to be trying out Firepow for this as it’s one backlinking source I have at my disposal that I have yet to take advantage of….

Another thing I did today was had a talk with Ben about my hubs…it’s been a month since my first big batch of hubs, 3 weeks for the majority of the remaining ones and I’m not seeing the kind of results I had expected..

Ben’s a friend of mine so I gave him complete transparency into my accounts to see what he had to say about what I’m doing wrong…What I found out was that apparently I was in the wrong niches for a lot of my hubs…

The other thing that was a problem was Traffic…I wasn’t getting enough of it and it’s likely because I didn’t have enough backlinks to get things to rank in the niches I’m in.  Apparently Infobarrel/Ezine isn’t always enough.  So what I’m thinking of doing is finding out what my best performing hubs are and building backlinks to them with UAW and using the Firepow blog network and see how that goes…

I’m also going to be searching for Adsense niches to target where the competition might not be as tough and see how I fare…If I happen across some good keywords that I see my hubs ranking on page 1 for, I may go and create some adsense snipers as well at this point.

The next few days I’ll be doing a lot of keyword research and looking for some good niches to get into…

Earnings For Today:

  • Hmm, a $0 day again
  • Hops 219(new) / 435(old)
  • Adsense = $3.71 (hubpages $0.03)
  • Niche Devil = $2.92 .info Ebay Sale 😮

Day 84 – Setting Up More Real Estate

July 28th, 2009

Ok, so today I spent the day putting up more backlinks to my hubs via Infobarrels…I was able to get 30 up which leaves me with 40 more Infobarrels left to put up. These 40 are all done at this point, they’ve been outsourced…so they are ready to go.

One thing that kind of annoyed me though when putting these up is they removed a bunch of my links to Hubpages.. They don’t like it when you link to your site at the bottom of the article as you would in Ezines…it seems like they would prefer you work your links into the body instead. So I had to go back and find ways to get my links into the body in the natural flow of the article.

Now I tried for the hell of it a search on one of my keywords where I just put up an Infobarrel and noticed that it was already appearing on page 1 of Google for it’s keyword! I haven’t checked many of them, but hopefully the same will be happening for other Infobarrels and this will be the start of my web properties ranking well enough to generate me some clicks.

Earnings For Today:

  • $27.12- 1 sale from a sniper site
  • Hops = 537
  • Adsense = $3.66

BTW, this month looks like it’s going to be the month of refunds…I can’t believe just how many I’ve had (13) and today I just got 2 more, almost $300 worth 🙁  This is why it’s good to have some Adsense income where you don’t have to worry about refunds stealing away your income.

Day 81 – 10 Articles Outsourced

July 25th, 2009

Today I was out for most of the day taking care of some things then went out for my friend’s 30th b-day, got back at like 2am so I didn’t have much time to work on the business…nevertheless, I was able to outsource 10 articles which will become Infobarrels.  I still have to outsource 30 more though, at which point I’ll have all my Infobarrel’s outsourced.

I’ve gotten back the 40 articles I outsourced yesterday, these guys are quick….so I’ve got that to post up to Infobarrel, I also still have 20 Hubs that I had outsourced that I still need to put up.

It will be interesting to see what happens once I have all these Infobarrel backlinks in place…I’m even considering doing additional backlinks with Ezine Articles @ 250 words each…but I’ll see what happens with the Infobarrels first.

Earnings For Today:

  • 1 Sale for a sniper site = $16.61
  • Hops = 499
  • Adsense = $2.06

Day 80 – 40 Articles Outsourced

July 24th, 2009

So today I got back 12 of the articles I had outsourced earlier, which coupled with the 8 I wrote myself gives me 20 new articles to post up as new hubs.  I have yet to post this, but when I do, it will bring my hub count to 160.

I’ve realized that my traffic to my hubs is pretty low and I’m not really earning anything substantial from my hubs…To speed things along a bit, I’ve decided to start backlinking to my hubs at this point, waiting around for my hubs to age was just too tedious!

So, I went ahead and outsourced 40 of my already existing articles used for hubs to be rewritten so that I may post them up on Infobarrel.  Each Infobarrel will then serve as a backlink to 2 hubs, so that will be 80 backlinks total.

Tomorrow I’ll outsource another 40 articles to serve as backlinks and see if I can start posting them up.  It’s crazy how fast things are coming along now…makes it more fun!

Earnings For Today:

  • $62.45 – 1 Sale from a sniper site that is 8 days old = $25.48, a sale for $16.61 for another sniper and the first sale for a sniper site which is 3 months old O_o = $20.36
  • 571 hops
  • Adsense = $2.49 (Little bit of Hubpage income there)

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

July 9th, 2009

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

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 30 – New Niche Site Creation

June 3rd, 2009

This is going to be a quick update as I’ve got to head off to bed early for my interview tomorrow…Today what I did was upload the review page to the site that I had created yesterday(it was indexed today)…It’s all the way back on page #4 right now, however there is another sniper site on page 1 that has only 2 backlinks, so I know it will eventually find its way there.

Also today, I wrote the content for a new site, created it and posted it up.

Earnings For Today:

  • $42.75 (1 sale for Site#3 = $22.84 and 1 sale for a sniper site = $19.91)
  • Adsense = $4.43
  • Hops = 387

BTW, this data is all kinda incomplete as there are still 4 hours left for me to get hops/Adsense/cb sales.  Also an update for yesterday.. I reported that I had gotten 511 hops, that figure actually rose to 541 for the end of the day…

Day 24 – PR Surprise :o

May 29th, 2009

math problem elephant Pictures, Images and Photos

Today I had some dealings with recruiters and job offers…I’m going for a recruiter interview tomorrow(after which I may get a client interview) regarding a Quality Assurance position.  Because of this I had to spend some time today refreshing my QA knowledge and going over my resume so I didn’t get as much work done today as I otherwise would have.

For anyone that hasn’t followed from the start, I’m a contract Quality Assurance/Business Analyst and I’ve been out of work for a bit now, which is why I’ve been able to devote so much time to getting all this IM stuff done.

It’s great being able to work on my business full-time like this, however if I do wind up getting a job, the pace is going to slow down…especially since these jobs are going to require me to travel quite a distance.

Well, aside from that today I did manage to get 2 UAW submissions done, building backlinks for 4 of my sites…in addition to that, I noticed that my page rank for many of my sites has gone up, it looks like Google in the last few days has done a page rank update, check your sites!

The end result of this for me was the following:

For my main authority sites:

Site #1 = PR0 to PR1
Site #2 = PR1 to PR2
Site #5 = PR0 to PR1
Site #7 = PR0 to PR1
Site #8 = PR0 to PR1

And for my sniper sites, I had 8 of my oldest sniper sites reach a PR of 1!  It seems like running UAW on the sites has paid off..interesting.

Earnings For Today:

  • Sale for Site#3 = $22.84
  • Adsense = $2.05
  • Hops = 356

Day 11 – Deciding On What To Do & Backlinking

May 16th, 2009

So I’ve been wondering lately if I should continue on building sites or maybe try and rework my existing sites for better conversions…I think that that answer will be more apparent after a few more days go by, I want to see how well these new products I’ve selected for my troublesome sniper sites perform.

So seeing as how this is where I am, I decided to spend a couple of hours building backlinks to about 24 of my sites, can’t go wrong with that….

That’s about all that I got around to doing today, so don’t have much else to report.  I did have a new record number of hops for today though (197)…It seems that since my UAW submissions, a lot of my sites have risen for their terms in Google..some to #1!

1 of my sites that got to #1 after the submissions got a total of 31 hops, the most I’ve ever had for 1 of my Sniper Sites and that’s from only 43 visits O_o.

I also had several other sites in the double digits of hops, one at 14, one at 13, one at 11 and two at 10…Below that I had one at 9, two at 8, one at 7, one at 6 and the rest below 5…

It’s interesting how so quickly I was able to get my hops from around 60/day to almost 200/day, that seemed so out of reach a short while ago…I remember Jeremy Kelsall from the Warrior Forum mention he got like 1000 or so hops a day and that that generated him around $300/day and I remember wondering how am I going to get it up that high???

Now I know, just make more sites…a LOT more…of course there is the one issue of making sure those are profitable hops, I’m working on that :>

Earnings For Today:

  • 1 Sale for Site#1 = $20.36
  • Adsense = $2.85
  • Hops = 197
