Well, today is the 3rd day in a row I’ve had over $100 in total earnings! Here’s the breakdown:
CB Sales = $97.44 (3 sniper site sales, 1 sale from site#1)
Adsense = $6.36 ($4.66 from Hubs)
TOTAL = $103.80
Hops = 274(new)/596(old analytics)
My guess is its a lucky streak as my hops have not gone up at all..
As far as what I did today…man, I really exhausted myself yesterday with 5 snipers and 15 ezines, it was hard to keep up that kind of pace 2 days in a row…today though I did manage to get 4 sniper sites done. I also registered a couple more domains in this new niche so now the total domains I’ll be developing here is around 23 domains. The sites are not ranking yet, although they are indexed, hopefully they will be in a weeks time.
I’m going to try and get these Sniper sites all up ASAP…I want them up early in the month so they have a chance to potentially earn and push my income up a bit higher. Once I’ve got a good chunk of snipers done, I’ll start spending my time on the hubs again and Niche Devil..
Today marks the first day I’ve had 2 $100+ days in a row and it feels good, I wish every day were like this :> Today I got $100.75… 1 sale from site #1, 1 sale from site#2, 1 sale from site#3 and one sale from site#4(this is the authority site that rarely got sales that now has had 2 sales in a row…)
In addition to this I also picked up $3.23 in adsense($0.71 from hubs)..
Now as far as the work I got done today, today I got A LOT done. I wrote up the content for 5 sniper sites in this new niche, and I put up all 5 of the sites with the exception of the final post which is to be applied when they are indexed. Now the site I put up yesterday has been indexed, although it is not appearing on page 1 or 2 yet…
That’s not all the work I did though as I also wrote up 15 Ezine Articles that I will be posting up for my hubs. It’s pretty easy to write up 250 – 300 word Ezines, it only takes about 6-7 minutes per article if you have a decent understanding of the subject matter…thus in 1 hour you can get 10 done..
I still haven’t seen any action from the .infos I put up..if these .infos don’t work out, there are 2 other options with Niche Devil:
1. Go after niches with even LESS competition (Ie: 500 searches/month or so) or…
2. Start putting up .net/org/com sites …Now the one thing I won’t be able to do with these sites is submit RSS feeds, but I’m pretty sure if I went with the .net/org/com that those sites would end up ranking well and ranking fast much like my regular sniper sites.
I’m really interested to see what happens once I start adding these Ezine backlinks to the mix…
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
OK, so it’s that time of the month again, time to analyze the income totals and find out how much I made! I’ve noticed something really strange when comparing the old vs the new analytics in Clickbank:
3 chargebacks($76.95) — chargebacks take money out of YOUR pocket, so if you made 1 $25 sale and got a chargeback, your balance would be -$25!
I’m not complaining about that! But the oddities don’t end there…
Approx 16,550 Hops for the month (+2,500 hops over last month)
8,634 Hops O_o !? 1/2 the hops practically!This changes my conversion rates significantly as well…My average hops per order in the new CB Analytics is 102/order vs 196/order in the old CB analytics.
Now, as far as how much income I’ve made, here’s the breakdown:
84 Sales (vs 76 total last month)
10 Refunds (vs 5 total last month)
74 NET sales
Gross CB Sales = $1,933.47 (vs $1,844.57 last month)
Refunds = $169.03 NET CB Sales = $1764.44 (vs $1,740.27 last month)
Now in addition to that I have some additional income to add on:
1 Sale from this site for $26.80
Adsense = $143.83 (+$9.98 over last month) **EDIT : $16.53 in Hubpage earnings, $1.27 in Infobarrel earnings**
Now here’s a surprise…I hadn’t been checking my Ebay at all because I didn’t expect much from it…I did report I made around $38 earlier this month, but it seems like I was way off..I don’t know how I was misreading it, but I was…I had another look via reports and this is what I found:
1 sniper site with Ebay on it got me 4 sales this month:
2009-07-05 Winning Bid (Revenue) 24.58 (from a $347.15 purchase)
2009-07-10 Winning Bid (Revenue) 51.26 (from a $1376.26 purchase)
2009-07-28 Winning Bid (Revenue) 2.5 (from a $20.52 purchase)
2009-07-29 Winning Bid (Revenue) 1.32 (from a $10.76 purchase)
***EDIT : I thought that was all my income, but it seems like this revenue is then split between Ebay and me and I’m left with $40.45, which is 1/2 of the total($80.89)***
So, adding everything together, the NET TOTAL for July is…. ***$1,975.51*** (+ $101.39 over last month)
I was hoping for a bigger increase, but part of the reason is I switched over to a new method of making money where results aren’t as instant (Hub building)..
Now for the fun of it, here’s a look at some of the new CB analytics for my account:
Now as far as what I did today, I spent a lot of time familiarizing myself with Niche Devil…There was a bit of a learning curve, but once you have it figured out, you can pretty much create a new site in 15 minutes, it’s crazy! The only question is, will the .info’s rank well? So what I did was I put up 9 .infos and I also put up a .org for one of the same keyword as the .info….I put up the .info’s earlier in the day and a lot of them are now indexed however they are not ranking…I just put up the .org about an hour ago, so it will be interesting to see which ends up ranking first, the .org or .info (the .info has had a head start, but it’s pretty much a shoe in for the .org I’d say..)
There’s more I want to mention about what I did today, but I’ll leave it for tomorrow’s post.
Ok, so for the first half of the day I got 20 articles outsourced, but then in the second half of the day, I came across something which I just couldn’t ignore and which is going to be changing my strategy for the next few days…
Vic from Blogger Unleashed has released a program called Niche Devil…it just came out on the 29th and it’s something even Grizzly is mentioning. What the program does is it allows you to setup a new website in under a minute (36 seconds in the demo video) which will pre-load it with Ebay/Amazon or Chitika…it will also take an article you provide (700-1000 words) and pull sections out from it, and spin it, inserting your main kw in it to create unique content.
This is similar to BANS was, except this leaves no footprint.
The idea here is to setup A TON of these sites as .infos(Vic suggests infos) and get them indexed and earning money…seeing as how easy they are to setup, it can be very easy to get up 100+ of these sites.
Here’s the link to the site if you want to check it out: Niche Devil (Vic is selling this for the next 14 days only)
Now I’ve already picked this up and started to work on this…I’m going to pump out 100 of these sites relatively quickly and see what happens. I’ve alerady done some keyword research and found a little over 50 keywords to use, I’m going to register these as $1 .info’s and set them up with Ebay/Amazon and see what happens. If this works out, I’ll be splitting my time between this and Hubpages.
Here’s my plan of action, you might want to follow this if you’re having a go yourself:
1. Use Google Product Search to find possible product niches that I can earn comissions off of on Ebay.
2. After repeatedly hitting “search”, once I’ve found a keyword that looks like it will bring in some good commissions, I’ll do a search for it in the Google KW Research Tool.
3. I’ll check that the CPC is decent(preferably $1+, optimally $3+, but at times I’ll go with $0.60+) and look for keywords with 1k+ exact searches.
4. With these keywords, I’ll search for them in quotes and preferably find keywords with under 30k competition and a front page that has a few PR N/A’s, 0’s, 1’s or 2’s.(I’ve found some keywords with as much as 18k, 33k and even 49k exact searches/month that I can potentially rank for)
5. Make a list of 50-100 keywords then begin creating the sites.
For site creation you just need to upload some files via ftp, then access the setup.php file, giving it your main kw and 10 subkeywords…Once you’ve done that and create it, you then only need to ping it and submit it to BMD and you’re done O_O.
This looks like an easy way to earn some cash and and diversify my portfolio…so for the next few days, I’m going to be focusing mainly on this… we’ll see what happens…
