Day 69 – 9 More Snipers To Go

July 13th, 2009

So today my 4 sniper sites from yesterday were all indexed, 3 were on the front page, 1 was on the second page…I went and uploaded the reviews I had written previously for all sites..

After that, I put up another 3 sniper sites for today and did some inventory on how many more sniper sites I have left to create.  Although I can potentially make 18-20 more, I’ve decided that I’m going to only make 9 more sites and call it quits at that point.

I counted up my sites and it looks like when I’m done creating the next 9 sites I’m going to have 96 sniper sites in my main sniper niche and 20 sniper sites in various other niches…that’s a total of 116 sniper sites, crazy!

I’m going to have to do quite a few UAW submissions for all these once I’m done…I’m anxious to see if my hops are going to increase or if my sales are going to increase once I’ve done all my UAW submissions…

I’m going to try and get 4 sniper sites done tomorrow and day after, so that would leave me with Wednesday being the start of me outsourcing UAW and going into Hubpage building full time.

Earnings For Today:

  • No CB sales today
  • 1 Sale from someone on this site :> $26.80
  • Adsense = $3.92 ( a good bit of this from Hubpages, from a hub I put up on the 9th)
  • Hops = 504

Day 66 – 2 More Snipers, 5 More Hubs

July 10th, 2009
Special Dad

Special Dad

So today I managed to get 2 more sniper sites created as well as 2 more hubs.  In addition to that, I also uploaded the 10 hubs I made yesterday bringing the total to 50 online hubs plus these 5 soon to be online ones.

Tomorrow I’ll work on the other 5 hubs for this niche I have planned and I’ll also research into a new hub niche to tackle.  With these Hubpages, I’ve found you have to be more patient than with sniper sites.  With sniper sites I can be indexed the next day and start seeing hops right then and there.  However with Hubpages, you need to wait about 1-2 weeks to start showing up high enough in the search engines to receive some clicks.

Of coures it depends on the niche you’re targetting, but this is what I found in the past with my 10 initial hubs and it is what Ben has found through his experience as well.

Earnings For Today:

  • $101.73 – 3 sales from the main sniper site niche = $27.13, $27.12, $27.12 and 1 sale for Site#1 = $20.36
  • Adsense = $5.05
  • Hops = 526

Day 62 – Hubpages & Sniper Sites

July 6th, 2009

Well, today I continued on with making the sniper sites while at the same time working on Hubpages…Today I was able to complete 2 more sniper sites in my main sniper niche, post  up the review pages to the 2 sniper sites I built yesterday(which are now indexed on page 1), post up the 10 Hubpages from yesterday and interlink them, as well as create 5 new Hubpages.  I’m going to see about creating 15 hubs tomorrow to make up for creating 5 less today.

The reason why I only got 5 done today was because I had to do some keyword research to find some new niches in which to enter for my Hubpages.  I spent about 2 hours doing that and found a couple of promosing niches.

Another thing I did today was register 6 more domains in my main sniper niche…I can’t believe how many domains I’ve registered in this niche, it’s just crazy…I believe I now have 90-95 domains in this niche, about 30 of which I have yet to develop.

I’m really trying to push myself here to get A LOT more work done so that I can see myself reaching a full-time income that much sooner…I hope to see a good chunk of income come out of these Hubpages eventually in the form of adsense.  I’m looking to get out at least 300 hubs (in addition to the sniper sites I’m working on now) which will hopefully result in at least 1k extra a month.

LONG DAYS AHEAD! My intention is to DOUBLE the amount of work I put out each day with the 10 Hubpages and 2 Sniper Sites daily, but hopefully this extra time investment will be rewarded…

Earnings For Today:

  • $16.61 1 sniper site sale from my main sniper niche, it’s from a site I built just 2-3 days ago, which is cool
  • $2.61 in Adsense
  • Hops = 520

Here are the results for the month of June:

Total Hops = 13,966
Total Sales = 76
Total Refunds = 5
NET Sales = 69
GROSS CB Sales = $1,844.57
NET CB Sales = $1,740.27

(+ $715.32 over last month’s total)

For me, living in Canada, with the current exchange rate being 86 cents to the dollar, this is $2,136.49 Canadian for me :>

Here’s more of a breakdown:

-47 Sniper Site Sales (compared to 17 sales for sniper sites last month)
-My main sniper niche accounts for $864.50 worth of sales…these sales came from a total of 17 of the main sniper site niche sites.

Click Here for a Screenshot of Clickbank, showing total hops for the month, $ earned, refunds, and a breakdown of the hop distribution to the sites >>

A look at the monthly progress now:

Feb = $325.17
Mar = $622.44
Apr = $795.19
May = $1,158.80
June = $1,874.12

I remember at the beginning of the year I had the goal of reaching 3k/month by the end of the year…I remember it seeming like this big goal and I remember not being sure if it would be achievable in that time frame or not..funny how things change…Now, given my results, I’ve changed that goal to 4-5k/month by then.

Additional Info For The Day:

  • Created 2 more sniper sites in the main sniper niche
  • Got all my ordered articles I outsourced, I’ll talk more about this tomorrow..

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

Day 53 – UAW Time + Look At Progress

June 27th, 2009
The Evolution of Geeks...

The Evolution of Geeks...

Ok, so I just finished off the last 2 sites I’m going to be creating for a while…Now I need to run UAW on about 23 odd sites, so this should take me about 4-5 days to complete.  After the backlinking for these sites is on autopilot, if my previous sites are any indication, they should start kicking in and generating commissions more frequently in about a months time, maybe a little sooner…

I’m still kind of curious about trying out building Hubpages for adsense…I do have my hands full with lots of sniper sites to create though…

I was going through some of my old Clickbank screenshots recently and I pasted together an image here to see how my Clickbank income has been growing over the past few months..This covers February to June:

And here’s a look at how my Clickbank bars have changed over time, this is from Aug-Sept of 2008:

Here is February 2009 (Made $258 NET in CB Sales):

Here’s April 2009 ($672 NET CB Sales):

And Here’s May – June ($1,051.58 NET sales in May):

I’ll have a detailed summary of this month’s sales and profit at the end of this month…

Earnings For Today:

  • $53.31 – 1 Sale from the main sniper site niche = $27.12, 1 sale from Site#1 = $26.19
  • Adsense = $3.66
  • Hops = 378

Day 52 – 2 More Sites To Go & R.I.P. MJ

June 26th, 2009

Well as you are now most likely aware, Michael Jackson died today at 50 after going into cardiac arrest…

I was surprised to find that when I did a search on “Michael Jackson Dead”, I saw an IM’er actually trying to profit off this with an adwords ad saying  “Should MJ Go To Hell?” then when you load it up it’s some site linking to a CPA offer saying to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on it and you can win a free Wii…pretty messed up, but it’s gone now.

I was a big fan of MJ back in the 80’s and it’s sad that Michael Jackson is now gone.. the world doesn’t feel the same without him around…It was hard to believe that he was actually dead even when reading about it. Even now it seems unreal, he was so young…

Well, back to my business, today I got another 2 sites done…I decided to count up how many sniper sites I now have and found that I now have 77 O_o.

As I answered in a previous comment from Bruce, I began creating these sites around the end of March, but I really started creating them en-masse around the end of April(2 months ago).

As a result, my income jumped from $622 in March to $795 in April (12 sales from sniper sites), then again to $1,051 in May (17 sniper sales totalling $417).  For the month of June, the # of sniper site sales looks like it is going to be 2.5x what it was the previous month..I’ll wait until the end of the month before I post stats.

I’ve now got 2 more sites to build before I finally venture into new keyword terriotory..  I much prefer going after new, fresh keywords than trying to rank again for the same keywords…It will be interesting to see how these .net and .org sites for the same keyword perform in a months time when they’ve had enough time to age and gain backlinks..

Earnings For Today:

  • $43.73 – 2 sales from the main sniper niche = $27.12, $16.61
  • Adsense = $2.71
  • Hops = 396

Day 48 – 2 More Sites Down + 28 New Domains

June 22nd, 2009
The Series Finale...

The Series Finale...

Today I got another 2 sniper sites completed…in addition to that I also had my eye on around 28 domains in the same niche…I finally decided to just go ahead and register the whole lot.  So now I’ve basically committed myself to the remaining 10 websites + these 28, that’s 38 websites which will likely take me close to a month to get through (factoring in promotion time with UAW).

These new domains also have pretty good traffic, just like my current sniper sites in the main sniper niche…the keywords range from 5.4 – 14.8k searches for exact match and I should be able to rank on page 1 for most of them pretty easy.

For any other niche where you can at least get 1:100 conversion, this would be a goldmine, however in the niche I’m in, conversions are likely to be 1:200 or 1:300.

In addition to all this, I did also spend time in Alex & Geroge’s training seminar…not much else new to report other than that.

Earnings For Today:

  • $42.45 – 2 sales in the main sniper niche = $26.33, $16.12
  • Adsense = $3.36
  • Hops = 463

Day 47 – 2 More Sites Down, 12 To Go

June 21st, 2009
The Return of Who Wins?

The Return of "Who Wins?"

Since I started creating more sniper sites for keywords I’ve already targetted with .orgs by using up the .nets, I’ve seen my sites take some first page rankings…As for the hops the’ve been able to generate, here are the stats(all sites are on page 1):

KW1: .org = #1 (26 hops), .net = #3 (10 hops)

KW2: .net = #7 (3 hops)… My old .org site is not showing up on first page for this at the moment

KW3: .org #7 (10 hops), .net = #10 (1 hop)

I’m sure over time, especially after a UAW submission, the results of these new domains will improve…

Once I’m done with the remaining 12 sites, I’ve got about 20-28 more keywords in this niche that I can target…I tried making sniper sites in other niches and never saw the kind of results that I did from this, so I figure, why not just totally mine this one out since I know it’s yielding results?  It might not convert that great, but it makes up for that in traffic volume.

So aside from this, tomorrow there is another seminar being held by Alex and George Brown, which I’ll be attending…I think it’s going to be 3 hours again.  I only showed up for 1 hour of the first one and I haven’t yet had the time to go over the other 2 hours I missed, so I’m a bit behind…

Well, I’ll report back on my impressions of the new method once I get a good understanding of what it’s all about…

Earnings For Today:

  • $54.06 – 2 Sales from the main sniper niche = $27.12, $26.94
  • Adsense = $6.17 (woah, I just noticed that one of the clicks I got was for one of the 10 hubpages I made while experimenting with the hubpage adsense challenge, was a pretty decently priced click too)

**OK I just checked out the hubpage click a bit more…according to my analytics, it came from a hub which is currently sitting on #2 of page 3 in Google.  I haven’t been getting many visitors to the hubpages I have though.. its been under 5 /day.

  • Hops = 458

Day 46 – George & Alex's Training + 14 More Sites

June 20th, 2009
An Interruption To The Daily Battles...

An Interruption To The Daily Battles...

So yesterday I mentioned I didn’t get around to writing up the reviews for my last 2 sites (although I did post them up with the welcome/tip posts)…Today I just got the review posts done for both the sites (which by the way are the posts which take the most time to come up with).  Both of the sites I created yesterday were indexed today…

1 is ranking #8 on page 1 (along with another one of my sites which is ranking #1 for the same term)

and the other is ranking #7 on page 1 (along with another one of my sites ranking #3 for the same term)…

I’ve now got another 14 more sites to build here…once I’ve done that, I’m going to consider going after several other keywords in this niche which may be hard to provide a relevant CB offer for, but which I can still pull a lot of traffic from..I’m probably going to just go for it and see how it turns out, worst case scenario, I”m out $10 for each domain.

Aside from that, George and Alex’s training started up today.  I wasn’t able to stay longer than 1 hour, so I didn’t get too much out of it, will have to download the rest of it…but from what I understand Alex is bringing in his bum marketing experience and George his pre-selling experience…

Now I didn’t hear the whole thing, but from what I did hear, we’ll be learning of various free ways of driving traffic to Squidoo sites.

I’ll still be creating my Sniper Sites, however I will be setting aside time 3x a week to attend these seminars, the next one is on Sunday.

Earnings For Today:

  • $47.17 – 1 sale for a site in the main sniper niche and 1 sale from a sniper site in the same niche as Site #2
  • Adsense = $4.30
  • Hops = 485
