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 51 – 4 Sites Left To Build

June 25th, 2009

Ok so today I got yet another 2 sniper sites done, I’ve now got 4 more left, so I’ll be done by Friday.  After these sites are done, I’m going to go promote them all through UAW, considering I’ve got 23 to build backlinks to, at 5-6 a day, it’s probably going to take me 5 days.  Once I’m done that, I’ve got another load of keywords to turn into sites in this niche…

It’s going to be a bit of a gamble with these other keywords since the product I’m promoting only offers a solution to these people’s problems as a side bonus booklet…This is the case for 15 of the 28 newly registered domains.

For the other 13, they’re not particularly buying keywords, however in the Google Keyword Research Tool, the green advertiser competition bar is more than 1/2 full for them…it will be an experiment…I’ve gone after similar non-buying keywords in this niche before and wound up converting 1:300…The better keywords in this niche convert 1:180 or 1:200…So worst case scenario, I’ll just be seeing more 1:300 conversions, which is fine by me considering there’s a lot of potential for traffic here.

Earnings For Today:

  • $53.50 – 1 sale from the main sniper niche = $27.12, 1 Site#1 sale = $26.38
  • Adsense = $3.75
  • Hops = 416

Day 50 – 6 More Sites + Hubpages?

June 24th, 2009

Well, today I again got 2 more websites done…most of the websites I’ve been creating have been getting indexed the very next day, so I’ve been going back and posting up the last review page for those….

Just to refresh your memories, I registered 23 domains in my main sniper niche which are all .net’s….they are for the same keywords I’ve already targeted with .orgs.  I’ve only got 6 more of these sites to do until I’m done creating the .net versions of my already existing .org keyword domains.

I noticed today that one of my new sites I just put up has already gotten a sale today.  It  took 19 hops before getting the 1 sale, but it’s still too early to tell if my new method of writing the sales copy for all these sites is causing improved conversions, or if this is just by luck that I converted a sale so fast…will have to wait and see how my other new sites written in the same fashion do.

Aside from this, I’ve been talking with Ben a bit about Hubpages.  Ben participated in Court’s 100 hubs in 30 days challenge and was quite successful in developing a nice adsense income as a result.  I’ve gotten a  few pointers from him and am considering having another go at it with this new information.  If I can find time in between my sniper site creation, I’m going to see if I can squeeze in some Hubpages.

One thing I did today that was Hubpage related was go back to my 10 Hubpages I created and interlink my hubs a bit.  What I did was the following:

Have Hub 2 link to Hub 1

Have Hub 3 link to Hub 1 and 2

Have Hub 4 link to Hub 1,2 and 3

Have Hub 5 link to Hub 1,2,3 and 4

Have Hub 6 link to Hub 1,2,3,4 and 5

Have Hub 7 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5 and 6

Have Hub 8 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7

Have Hub 9 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8

Have Hub 10 link to Hub 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9

Now apparently you’re allowed only 2 external links, but there is no limit on the # of links to your own hubs.  With this backlinking method, there are only 1 way links, however the linking is not evenly distributed and Hub 10 is left with no links.  I’ll be doing this though unless I can come up with any better linking strategy between the hubs.

Another tip I got was to target keywords as low as 200 exact searches..it would certainly be a lot easier to rank for such keywords…

Earnings For Today:

  • $67.01 – 1 Sale from Site#2 $20.04, 1 Sale from a sniper site in Site#2’s niche $20.04, 1 Sale from a new site in the main sniper niche $26.93 …..(BTW, I made a total of $568.31 for the week, up from $247.54 from 4 weeks ago)
  • Adsense = $7.75
  • Hops = 512

Day 49 – Day Of Monies

June 23rd, 2009
Sup Yo.

Sup Yo.

Well, got through another day of building sites, I put up another 2 sites today which leaves 8 sites for me to build before I get into a few new keywords…

Today was a KILLER day for me in terms of sales…In fact I’ve never had a larger sales day than today..

NOTE:  On June 11th, truth be told, I purchased a CB product through my own link, hence the $163.75 commission day there should actually be  around $96.51 and the weekly totals should read as:

2009-06-24 $501.30
2009-06-17 $399.65 **
2009-06-10 $434.88
2009-06-03 $291.08
2009-05-27 $247.54

Nevertheless, you’ll still be able to see from this screenshot how my CB income in the last 1 month has doubled and seems to now be at at least $500/week(I still have 1 day to go before this week is over):


Here is the earning breakdown for today:

7 Sales..

1 sale from a sniper site in Site#2’s niche = $20.04
3 sales in the main sniper niche = $27.12, $27.12, $21.57
2 sales for Site #1 = $26.38, $26.38
1 sale for Site #2 = $20.04

Adsense = $5.04

Hops = 509

*Total for Today = $173.59!*

Can’t wait to see what my income will be like once these next 8 sites + the 28 I registered recently are done!  I would love to see this trend continue and bring my income to $750/week in another month…

Once I get to 1k/week, around 4k a month, I’ll be getting 4.4k/month CAN which is a little over 50k/year..I’ll pretty much be set then, hope that day comes soon :>

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 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 32 – Adsense Sites?

June 6th, 2009

Well, today I spent some time actually looking into the notion of creating sniper sites specifically for earning Adsense income…

I was able to find a niche where the CPC was around $3-6…I was able to find 19 websites that I could target, most of them had 4.4-8.4k searches for EXACT match in the Google Keyword Research Tool.

I’ve still got to get through with this batch of sniper sites, but when I’m done, I may try my hand at that…I even went looking for some adsense themes and found some which may be good (ad-flex-niche and bluesense).

Aside from that I got 1 more sniper site done in this new niche which makes a total of 4…I’m going to go through them a bit more rapid fire the next few days, I much prefer the 2 a day rythm.

Other than that, I had a pretty good day of sales again.  I had 6 sales today for a total of $133.36.  3 Were from sniper sites and 2 for site #1.

I don’t want to get too happy with this though as I feel I have a long way to go still and this needs to happen FASTER!…I need to get to the point where that is like an AVERAGE amount I get per day.  I’m either going to need to step up my site creation big time somehow or look into PPC or outsourcing…

Earnings For Today:


  • $133.36 from 6 sales ( 2 Sales from Site #1 = $26.38 + $20.36, 2 sales for the main sniper site niche = $27.12 + $16.61(this is for the second product in the sniper site niche that converts at like 1:300…the last sale is from another sniper site = $31.85)
  • Adsense = $7.22
  • Hops = 451
  • Total for the day = $140.58

Day 29 – It's Over 500!

June 3rd, 2009

Today I had some job related business to take care of, nevertheless I managed to take that content I created yesterday and put up the site in this new niche.  I’m planning on putting up around 20 more sites in this niche as thats how many keywords I’ve found thus far that seem decent.

It seems like a bunch of my sites in my main sniper niche that had been hovering between the bottom of page 1 and top of page 2 are now rising and getting more hops due to either time or more likely the UAW submissions that are going on…as a result, I’ve seen a SIGNIFICANT increase in the number of hops registered for today.  Clickbank for some reason doesn’t count the end of the day until 3am ES and because I’m going to bed a bit earlier these days, i won’t be able to give you the exact hops or even sales for the day(if more by chance come in).  But I can tell you that last I checked, my total hops for the day was *511*!

It’s crazy!  Back on April 6th or so, near when I started this site I had only about 90 hops for the day, I’ve now increased that number 5x in 1 month!

By the way, today was another insane day for sales, I got 4 Clickbank sales for a total of $96.10!  2 of those sales came from 1 of my 4 sites in the main sniper site niche that targetted a product name as the keyword…that site is ranking #3 on page#2 of Google, it’s only gotten 2 hops yet it has gotten 1 person buying both the regular item and the upsell (hence the 2 sales).

Man, I’m just blown away by how easy it is to get hops with this sniper method…

Earnings For Today:


  • $96.10 in CB Sales – 2 Sales for a sniper site in the main sniper site niche (combined total = $49.96), 1 sale for Site#1 = $26.38 and one sale for a sniper site that has been ranked #1 for the last few days = $19.38 … This sniper site is getting 10-15 hops a day, today it got 18 hops out of 56 visits(according to AWStats)  ..this same site got a sale 2 days ago as well.
  • Adsense = $6.16
  • Total for the day = $102.26
  • I’ll report tomorrow on the total number of hops/sales for today if it changes as it’s not yet the end of the day

Day 28 – Site Creation In A New Niche

June 2nd, 2009

Ok, so today I got started on my new niche.  I spent time today deciding on the product to promote, I went and found an image to use for my persona (off of bigstockphoto.com) as well as a name which had no results when searched for in Google….then I picked a keyword from my keyword list to start my first site on and wrote up a review page for the product.

The first time you write up that review for a new niche usually takes the longest.  Thereafter, writing content for all future sites in the same niche becomes easy and I find I’m able to churn out the sniper sites at a rate of 2 a day.

Today I was able to get the content written for 1 site, however I decided to wait until tomorrow before putting it up.  Reason being that I have a habit of doing all my work late at night when it’s easier for me to concentrate and I’m trying to ween myself off that as I may very well be working 9-5 sometime again soon.

I just got an interview with a client (the real interview) this Thursday at 11am.  It was actually an interview for another company (I was submitted to 2 different companies)…So I’m going to start going to bed a bit early now so I don’t wind up going to that interview brain dead :>

Earnings For Today:

  • $20.04 – Sale for a sniper site
  • Adsense = $2.44
  • Hops = 381

Day 25 – Assessment of Sniper Sites

May 30th, 2009

Ok, so today I was able to get 3 more runs of UAW done…that leaves me with about 6 more sites that I need to build backlinks for (I realized I had  more sites than I thought to create backlinks for)…Once I get that done, I’ll probably start making sniper sites again.

Now I thought it would be a good idea to do an assessment of how successful my sniper sites have been thus far.  Now this is not going to be the best assessment as not enough time has gone by and because most of my sites in my main sniper site niche only became profitable once I switched out products, but none the less, here’s my income thus far for this month from sniper sites:

AMEX     USD       Sale       1     $20.04
PYPL     USD       Sale       2     $27.12
VISA     USD       Sale       2     $27.12
VISA     SEK       Sale       1     $26.33
VISA     USD       Sale       1     $27.12
VISA     DKK       Sale       2     $26.33
VISA     USD       Sale       1     $27.12
VISA     USD       Sale       2     $27.12
PYPL     EUR       Sale       1     $26.33
MSTR     USD       Sale       2     $27.12
VISA     USD       Sale       2     $27.12
VISA     USD       Sale       1     $20.04
VISA     USD       Sale       1     $20.04
MSTR     CAD       Sale       1     $31.85
PYPL     USD       Sale       1     $20.04

Total = $380.84

So out of all the 50 sites I’ve made, this is what I’ve been able to make from them this month(with the exception of the 30th and 31st as it’s not the end of the month yet).  Now I think if I let this play out for another month, that figure will be at least $500 for 50 sites (possibly more but lets stick with this) because as I said before, not enough time has gone by and a lot of my sites only became profitable once I switched products for my main sniper site niche(at the 14th of this month).

So, lets just assume that’s the case…that means by the time I have 200 sites, if I can stay consistent I’ll be making an extra 2k/month.  That seems like a lot of work to get to 2k/month,  but then again, it’s not too hard to pop out these sniper sites.  The only thing is if I want 5k/month at this rate that would equate to 500 websites which is a crazy number :/  I’m wondering if at some point I should stop and maybe focus on building web 2.0 sites to funnel traffic to the sniper sites…

Anyways, I think what I’ll do is once I’m done backlinking with UAW, I’ll start creating sniper sites again in a new niche.  I’ll then check to see if things are going well with the new sniper sites and if my hops and more importantly my income keeps increasing, I’ll stick with it and keep building sites.

Earnings For Today:

  • Sale for Site #1 = $20.36
  • Adsense = $5.61
  • 1 refund for Site #3= $22.84
  • Hops = 335
