Day 121 – XFactor, Infobarrels, SENuke

September 3rd, 2009


Mr. Bean Goes To The Dentist – Thanks Pete

Today I was able to have a look at XFactor’s adsense book…I like his approach.  He laid his whole adsense strategy out in the kind of detail you don’t often see… the only thing is he uses XSite Pro to create his websites rather than WordPress.  I decided to try and figure out XSite Pro after reading the book…I had used it only 1 time before, but I wasn’t quite sure how to create a custom theme so I spent some time learning that, think I have it figured out.

I may try out his approach a bit on a few adsense snipers and see how that works out…

Aside from that, I’ve put up 10 more Infobarrels and now I’m going to start outsourcing more Hubs/Infobarrels to use up the money I have in Human Rewriter.  With all the income I’ve earned from Hubs/Infobarrels, I now have an idea of what makes money and what doesn’t…as such, I have a better understanding of what niches I need to focus on if I want to make money with Hubs/Infobarrels, so my next batch should do significantly better than my previous batch..

At the end of the day, I also squeezed in a run of SENuke for one of my CB Snipers.  The biggest success I’ve had with SENuke thus far is pulling a site up to position 3 on page 1 from nowhere..that site got 18 hops(old system) yesterday alone.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB Sales = $119.81 – 3 sniper site sales & 2 authority site sales (My income is back to normal it seems now that the banners are displaying on my websites…crazy how such a small thing can cause so much trouble.
  • Hops = 546(old analytics) / 264(new analytics)
  • Adsense = $11.12 (hubs = $4.54, infobarrels = $2.55)

Day 106 – Adsense Sniper Research

August 19th, 2009


Scam Now – Friggin’ HILARIOUS!

You know one of the things I’ve realized is that although it’s good to pump out as many sites as you can in 1 day, at the same time, you want to be certain that you’re not wasting your time on junkie keywords…

In the past when putting up CB Snipers or even Hubpages I sometimes went after sub-par keywords in favor of just getting more content out there thinking that if I throw enough out there something will stick…but after doing that as much as I have, I’m now looking to minimize the failed sites..

Therefore, I spent pretty much most of the day searching out different niches for adsense snipers and in so doing, gaining perspective on what kinds of niches seem like good targets and which niches are just not worth the time.

I’ve been able to jot down about 25-30 keywords in about 12 different niches so far…

Now that I’ve set aside this time to research these niches, it’s a lot easier for me to confidently barrel through and create these snipers en-masse.  I’ve still got to do quite a bit more research though, I want to cover as many different niches as I can to ensure success, I will start with the adsense site building again tomorrow though.

BTW, the first 2 sites are ranking at around the top of page #2 at the moment and the site I created yesterday has already earned me $0.54 :>  If after backlinking I can get each of these sites to bring in $ 0.50 – $1/day on average, I’ll be happy.

Oh, one other thing I did today….I had completely forgot about a batch of snipers I had recently made in my main sniper niche, I noticed about 7-8 of them ranking on page 1 now…it took a while but they’re there.  I went over there and posted up the final review page, will be interesting to see if that results in a boost of income of maybe $100-200/month down the road.

Earnings For Today:

  • Site#1 – $26.38
  • Adsense = $11.90 (Hubs = $2.77 , Infobarrel = $1.24)
  • Hops = 197(new) / 414(old)

Day 104 – Adsense Sniper Is Up!

August 17th, 2009


Retarded Policeman

Today I got my first Adsense sniper site up!  Now eventually I want to be putting out more than just 1 a day, I’m just acclimating myself to a new type of sniper site…

Now I’m not going to be as specific when it comes to talking about my adsense snipers and all the steps I take in setting one up as there is a very real possibility of losing my adsense account here if the wrong person finds my site. And I already know that people are misusing the detail I put on this site to search me up jump in on my niches so unfortunately this is how it’s got to be.

Now one thing I will say is that I’m not putting up only 3 posts as I would for a CB Sniper…I’m going to put up at least 5 posts on every Adsense site I put out there and I’m going to make sure the content I write up is decent content(which it always is)..

Now I picked out an Adsense theme today as well, we’ll see how well it does, but I basically selected a bland/boring looking theme which is more likely to get clicks.

The thing about Adsense snipers is usually high CPC keywords are competitive keywords and the types of keywords a sniper site would take 7+ days to start ranking for, if ever…I want to ensure the success of my Adsense snipers so I’m going to be spending much more time with keyword research and try to find me some high CPC keywords that for some anomalous reason seem to have little to no competition on page 1(mostly PR 0,1 and 2’s).  These keywords exist but they’re going to be harder to find.  Subsequently I MIGHT not be pumping out sites AS fast as I would CB Snipers(3-6 day), initially anyway…but we’ll see how things go.

If I can get these things to produce at least $1/day each, I would be set, as I can pump out sniper like sites pretty quickly at this point.

I’m considering backlinking these up as well..I may try using the Firepow Blog network and see how that works out..

Earnings For Today:

  • $144.11 – One of my authority sites(Site #7) that was getting 0 sales with Market Health I switched over to CB…after 16 hops(according to old CB analytics I managed to get 1 sale + 1 upsell for a total of $65.93!  In addition I got 4 sniper site sales.
  • Adsense = $5.20 (Hubs = $1.04, Infobarrel = $0.79)
  • Hops = 257(new) / 497(old analytics)

Day 97 – Put Up 2 Sniper Sites

August 10th, 2009


MAC meets PC

Well, I’m still going to be posting here barring something that seriously impacts my income: Regarding Yesterday

Now…I haven’t done my usual amount of work the past 2 days…today I only got 2 sniper sites done…I have a total of 14 that I’m looking to develop right now(2 are done) in my main niche.  I had previously tried entering into a new niche and built 9 sniper sites as you may recall…those sites STILL haven’t begun ranking so it seems as if it’s just one of those niches where the competition is just way too strong and it takes a long while to start ranking(been about 5 days)…

Hopefully these 2 sniper sites I just worked on get indexed and rank on first page by tomorrow, if I see that happen I’ll probably go all out with building the rest of these snipers, otherwise I may shift my attention more to working on my hubs…

One thing I had mentioned a couple of days ago was I did an experiment where I converted an authority site over to an adsense site…Previously it had adsense on it but it was mainly promoting an affiliate product on market health that never got any sales for months…so I switched over to CB, but I wasn’t seeing sales popping up there really, so I just converted it over to a nice adsense theme and the result is that it now looks like I’m generating $1-$1.50/day instead of $7/month in adsense from this site(FYI, the site gets 90-100 visits a day).

Earnings For Today:

BTW yesterday I made $69.53 in CB sales and $5.04 in Adsense

  • $47.16 – 2 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 209(new)/370(old)
  • Adsense = $2.49 (Infobarrel = $0.25)

Day 95 – Misc Stuff

August 8th, 2009


Today I did a lot of different stuff…

First of all, I realized that I had 3 sniper sites I had made previously, several weeks ago…that had now begun ranking on page 1 but I had not put up the final review for…It’s possible I lost a sale or two by not having done this sooner, but this stuff happens when you’re putting up so many sites…

In addition to that, I also have done an experiment…One of my authority sites which was not getting a sale from Market Health, has been switched over to Clickbank but is not doing the best with that either…so I’ve decided to turn it into an adsense site.  The posts are still going to have a call to action for an affiliate product, but I have switched the theme over to an adsense focused one and am going to see if I can earn some more money out of it that way…

I also put up 5 more Ezine Articles, 10 more Hubs and 5 Infobarrels…this brings the total to: 180 Hubs/85 Infobarrels/30 Ezine Articles.

I’m going to get back to outsourcing Hubs again and also fitting in some sniper sites over the weekend…I really want to get up to 300 Hubs soon…

Earnings For Today:

Wow, the first time in a long time this has happened…$0 CB sales

  • Adsense = $3.41 (Hubs = $2.14)
  • Hops = 188(new) /

Day 94 – Hubs Are Picking Up

August 7th, 2009

Well, today I didn’t get as much as I had hoped done.  I wrote up 10 Ezine Articles, posted 5 of them…I also  pulled out 20 outsourced articles and tidied them up for posting(spell checked them, made sure my main keyword was in enough times and threw in some extra related keywords).

I think over the weekend I’ll look to setup some more sniper sites in my main sniper niche, I’ve got 14 domains that I want to develop there…I’m a lot more confident these will turn out well as I’m quite familiar with this niche…the new sniper niche I delved into seems to be a competitive one, I’m still waiting for my sites to show up in the rankings..

I’ve noticed that I’m getting regular Hub income as of late and I’ve also noticed a sharp increase in the traffic to my hubs…this graph will give you an idea of what’s going on:

Link To A Graph Of My Hub Traffic

So as you can see, over the last couple of days my traffic has practically doubled…I’m guessing there will be another boost once these Ezine Articles start going live …

Earnings For Today:

My income really has been up there the past 5 days, today was a good day..

  • $114.50 – 1 Sale for Site#1, 2 Sales for Site#3, 2 Sales for the main sniper niche
  • Adsense = $4.08 – ($1.69 Hubs), ($0.39 Infobarrel)
  • Hops = 190(new) / 352(old)

Day 89 – Niche Devil & Hubs

August 2nd, 2009


Washington, Washing-ton…

Well now, it seems like if you didn’t pick up Niche Devil, you’re out of luck :/, Vic has gone and taken it off the market, he doesn’t want too many people using and taking advantage of it and causing a stir with Google…

That leaves everyone who has picked it up free reign to take advantage of it :>

It’s crazy…now that I”m used to it, if I’m in the zone, I can setup sites in LITERALLY 3-4 minutes.  This includes FTP’ing, Setting up Ebay Campaigns, copying and pasting them in along with the kw’s and pinging (doesn’t include BMD).

The big question though is, how will the .info’s rank?

Well, today I registered 45 more .info domains and put up 20 more of the Niche Devil sites spread out amongst several niches…will be interesting to see if there is any activity in the coming days now that I have 30 .info’s out there. BTW, neither my .org or any of my .infos are ranking yet..seems like it is a tough niche.

In addition to this, I spent some time outsourcing hubs, got 10 outsourced..I’m going to need to spend more time on this, I feel like I’m behind since I’ve been paying more attention to ND.

I also wanted to mention…one program which I found yesterday which is going to help me out big time in the managing of ALL my domains is Domain Dashboard.  If you’ve got a lot of domains and you’re finding it hard keeping track of them all, this is a free program (used to be paid, but became free SEO Cockpit came out) that lets you access your WHM and log into each of your websites CPanels to check their AWStats(works best with a reseller account)….it also lets you check all your sites page rank, keyword rankings and backlinks!

It’s not something that’s going to matter to you if you only have 10 domains(but keep it in mind for the future),if you have 20+ though, you’ll want to pick it up:

Earnings For Today:

  • $55.18 – 2 Sales from a sniper site, 1 Sale for Site#1
  • Adsense = $5.16 ($0.35 hub / $0.10 IB)
  • Hops = 457(old analytics) / 258(new)

Day 75 – I Outsourced The Hubs

July 19th, 2009


Goldar…

So today I went and uploaded the remaining 12 hubs from yesterday to make for a grand total of 100 hubs uploaded….

After I did that, I started doing some keyword research to find new keywords for hubs.  It took a bit of time, but I was able to find enough keywords to use for hubs for both today and tomorrow.

Now when I picked this latest topic to write about I wasn’t too keen on writing about it.  If you don’t have any idea what it is, it takes quite some time to figure out all the lingo and write a meaningful article for it.  I originally had no intention of going into forex, insurance or taxes as even thought they pay highly, I would find it boring to write about…however I decided if that’s where the money is, I should at least give it a shot.

So, I began writing….I ended up writing 4 articles and then realized there was no way I’d be getting 20 of these done in the time I had left, each article required quite a bit of research.  So, I decided that I’d go ahead and OUTSOURCE the articles!  What I used was a service called “Human Rewriter”, it’s gotten some good reviews on the WF and the content is apparently re-written by people from the U.S.

It cost me on average $3.75 per 480 word article….What I did was search on Ezine Articles for my keywords, and usually I’d find a bunch of articles.  I’d then look for those that are at least 450 words…then I’d check to see if they used the keyword in the body, if they did and the article looked good, I’d copy it, maybe add the kw a few more times, then use that to submit to be re-written.

So I did this for 16 articles as I had already written 4 today….The turn around time is 24-36 hours so I’ll let you all know how well this turns out for me.  If it goes well, I can see myself using this in a big way to outsource some of the Hubs…namely the Infobarrels which will serve as backlinks to my Hubs…I can just make them all rewrites of my Hubs.  If I am looking to create 150 Infobarrels to backlink to 300 of my Hubs, it would cost me about $560…and if things turn out as they have for Ben ($10 per 100 infobarrels), I’d be not only saving myself 1 week worth of work, but I’d also be getting $15/day once those Infobarrels mature.

It all sounds good, in theory….I’ll have to wait and see how it all turns out…

Earnings For Today:

  • $62.92 – 1 sniper site sale = $20.03, 1 Sale for Site #3 = $11.04, 1 sale for the main sniper site = $31.85
  • Adsense = $2.87 (some Hubpage income here)
  • 482 hops

Day 74 – 100 Hubs Written Up

July 18th, 2009

This has been a long night…I waited too long to get started on writing my hubs but nevertheless, I got 20 hubs all written….I was just in the process of uploading, I got through about 8 but then Hubpages got all screwy, they’re messing with the website layout or something and now I can’t navigate their site to add the rest of the hubs I wrote.

So I guess I’ll call it a night and get back to uploading the remaining 12 hubs tomorrow when hopefully this will be fixed…But once It is, and I finish uploading this, this will make for 100 total hubs!

It’s a lot of fun seeing the # of hubs go up at such a fast rate, just 2 days ago I was at 60…in another 10 days I SHOULD be at 300!  Probably at that point I’ll start making 150 Infobarrels as backlinks to the existing hubs and see how that works out.

Earnings For Today:

  • $87.46 – 4 sales for the main sniper niche = $16.61, $16.61, $27.12, $27.12
  • Adsense = $5.63 (Some Hubpage income here)
  • Hops = 515

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
