So today I spent some more time with UAW…I submitted 3 more UAW articles that will build backlinks to 6 of my site’s main domains at a rate of 15 submissions/day. I also went ahead and outsourced 7 articles to each be re-written 3x for 7 more UAW submissions.
At this point, I just have 13 other sites that I’ll need to outsource UAW for and then 66 of my 72 sites will have backlinks building to their main domain(which will likely wind up being 30 backlinks at the end of the runs for each site).
Aside from that, I have also been wanting to start up WordPress Mage, although I had a little issue with my new hosting company to take care of. I had wanted to have a pre-owned, aged domain as my main domain to build add-on domains ontop of as this gives all WordPress Mage sites a bit of an extra boost..thing was I signed up with a new domain so I needed to get tech support to switch it over.
Once that’s done though, I’ll be able to get started with the building of my sites…I’ve got some 20 odd domains that I bought with GoDaddy to work on, but I’m going to build them nice and slow. By the way, the WordPress Mage system is launching on Monday November 23rd…they’re planning on keeping it open for 4 days or until they sell out. They’re only going to be releasing some 450 copies of it. Other than George, looks like Holly Mann is also promoting it.
I’m hoping with my CB income drop and loss of my top adsense site, this can help me pick up some of the slack. There are a bunch of people on the forums making money with this and due to the way in which this is setup, it doesn’t require much work…the only thing to be cautious of is building up your income too fast and getting auto flagged by the Ebay bot that looks for suspicious accounts, although you can also make money with Adsense, Amazon, CJ or CB.
OK, so I’m at the point where I’m considering if I should go and get SENuke…the thing is I’m already paying quite a lot of money for subscriptions..I’ve got Firepow, UAW, Aweber….plus there’s my reseller hosting at Host Gator..it all adds up to around $190/ month. If I add SENuke on top with it being $127 now that puts me at $317/month, pretty crazy.
If I do end up getting it though, I’m going to ensure I use it and use it A LOT…
I was looking over my niche and noticed that there are 3 keywords I’ve been knocked out of now and 1 more keyword I’m sharing. So I’m thinking if I get SENuke, I might as well go and run it on those sites, link wheel that up and see if that allows me to regain my rankings.
Now as far as what I did today, I decided to find out what hubs of mine are making the most revenue and take note of them. I found out that I really only have about 30 odd hubs that have generated any income, so I wrote those down and paired them up in groups of 2. What I’ve now got are 18 pairings of hubs which I can do UAW submissions for to boost their rankings further.
So far I have submitted 1 UAW article linking back to 2 of my hubs.
I hate not having a money making system in place that is working and working well, but hopefully I figure one out that works soon.
I think I may have spoke too soon when I had mentioned my earnings seem to be staying the same, at least as far as my adsense is concerned…it’s not much, but it seems to have gone up a bit due to increased revenue from my Hubpages and Infobarrels. Today I was able to make $15.87 in Adsense revenue.
Over the last week, my average adsense income has been $56.30…Last month I made $143.83 in adsense…if this trend continues that would come out to $225/month. Not a huge for the work put in, but it’s something.
Today I was able to get a 4th Adsense sniper done as well as submit the UAW article for this and the adsense sniper from yesterday. I now have 4 adsense snipers completed and what I’ve been finding is that they have all been ranking on the 2nd page.
I’m going to have to do some more backlinking in addition to UAW to get them all to the front page, my intention now is to make use of SENuke to build up a network of sites linking to it, a link wheel that is. I’ve already written up a spun article which I can use as a SENuke submission for my first 2 sniper sites, I’m going to try doing about 2 submissions of SENuke per site and then go in and internlink all the Web 2.0 properties together and see how that works out.
I already know from my previous experience with SENuke on one of my authority sites that it does a good job of getting your site’s pages from page 2-3 of Google up to page 1, so I’ll see how well this works out for these adsense snipers.
As I mentioned before, I’m not going to be pumping out these adsense snipers like I was with my CB snipers, I’m going to focus more on backlinking to ensure that each one is successful.
OK, so today I got another adsense sniper site out of the way and also wrote up a UAW article. I saved the UAW article 1/2 way through completing the submission, I need to get another site done before I submit it as I do 1 UAW submission for every 2 sites.
As far as my income is concerned, although there are times where I may have a very big day of CB sales or a high amount of adsense revenue, I’d say I’m still on track to make 2k/month, no big changes in income yet…
I’m hoping that the next big break in my income will come as I figure out these adsense snipers….The key is going to be finding a way to get them to rank on page 1, and bring in a good amount of traffic…A lot of this is going to depend on me finding myself a good niche or niches as well as finding a backlinking system which I can consistantly use to get my site up there at the top of page #1 as high CPC keywords can be hard to rank for in many niches.
I’ve been looking into various ways of doing this and as I mentioned before, I think I’ll be trying SENuke in addition to UAW. This means I’ll be spending a bit more time building backlinks, moreso than I did with my CB Sniper sites, but seeing as how the only thing I need for each site to be successful is traffic, I’m going to see to it each site is getting enough traffic, even if that means I’ve got to do a bunch of Ezine Submissions for low hanging fruit related keywords.
I thought I’d also mention that I’m going to be playing with targeting keywords that have a CPC of $2 or even lower if I find a keyword with a ton of searches…this is the only way I’ll find out what works and what doesn’t, trial and error.
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..
Now I know a lot of you were expecting to see another jump in income this past month, but the fact is, sometimes you can work your ASS off and stay at a stand still! It’s all part of the frustrations that go along with IM.
Well, considering this and considering it’s the start of a new month…I want to ENSURE I make some progress. Seeing as how I’m relatively new to the whole making money with Hubs and the only thing I KNOW I can make money off for sure is with sniper sites, I thought it wise to go back to making some sniper sites.
Now this does not mean I’m abandoning Hub building..My goal with Hub building is to get 300 hubs built with 150 Infobarrel backlinks and 150 Ezine Articles backlinking those hubs as well. I’m going to be working on my hubs on a day to day basis still, but I’m going to try and spend more of my time focused on building snipers.
Now MikeM, I know you asked if I’m seeing the kind of results I expected with the Hubs…the answer is, it’s still too early for me to pass judgement. I’ve got 160 hubs up and 80 infobarrels backlinking them but a lot of that is relatively new.
One thing I HAVE found out though(through experience and speaking with others) is that backlinking is INCREDIBLY key to this. If you want to see some fast profits from your hubs(like Court saw), you can’t just put up 100 hubs and expect to see cash rolling in. You need to backlink those up with Infobarrels, then again with Ezine Articles and even more if possible(ex: UAW).
The other factor is of course time, however time without the backlinks is not good enough, so if you’re only planning on putting up 100 hubs with nothing supporting them, you’re going to be dissapointed.
With that said, it seems like things picked up for my Hubs today, although I can’t disclose clicks…
Now as for Niche Devil, this is also something I’m going to see if I can squeeze in. My intent is to get 100 .infos out there and see what happens. So far what I’ve found is if all you do is put them up and ping them, they don’t get indexed, you NEED to run BMD on them if you want them to get indexed.
I haven’t had all of mine indexed as I don’t want to do too many bookmarks at once, but I am now just finishing up the last few bookmarks on my 30 ND .info sites.
One other thing I want to mention is that I found one of my .info sites RANKED! I was surprised, although it was found WAYYYY back on page 17. If this were a .org/net or com, and I had done my usual RSS submissions, I know this would have shown on page 2 at the least for this kw. It’s interesting to see how differently .info’s respond. Well, hopefully the .infos end up ranking and bringing in traffic sometime soon, I still don’t have any traffic to speak of for them.
Now as far as what I got done today…I did some research and found 15 keywords in a new niche to target and put out 1 sniper site. I also outsourced 10 more Hubpages.
Earnings For Today:
$126.83 – 2 sales for the main sniper niche, 2 sales for another sniper niche and 1 sale for one of my authority sites that RARELY gets sales.
So 2 days ago I had outsourced 16 hubs to a service called “Human Rewriter” It’s an outsourcing service I saw Jeremey Kelsall and Michelle and Leslie from TNB vouch for…Well, I just got them back and overall I am pretty impressed! I read through them all and noticed that they all made sense, there were no silly grammatical errors that would show that someone wrote this who has English as a second language.
I got really excited after looking through the first few, thinking that I wouldn’t even have to edit these, that I could post them straight up as hubs, but I eventually found a few that had issues. About 3-4 of the 16 didn’t use the keyword enough times or at all in the body….Additonally 1 other small thing was I mentioned they should all be over 450 words…the majority were, but there were 2 that were under 400, one at 330 words and one in the high 300’s. With those I jsut padded on an intro paragraph and a little conclusion and that was that.
On the whole though, this has been the best outsourcing experience I’ve ever had.. I even asked them to throw in some LSI keywords if they could fit it in and they ended up doing it :> …As for the editing for each article, overall it didn’t take long…I’d say less than 30 seconds for each, except for the 3-4 that I needed to fill in the keywords (1-2 min each) and the 2 that I had to add an intro and conclusion sentence (2 min each)..
But again, the thing that stands out most with these people is the English quality… a lot of outsourcing companies say they have native English speakers(GetArticlesDone) but then you realize some of the articles are NOT written by native speakers….In this case there was the odd small spelling mistake, but the grammer for all 16 was on par with a native speaker.
Now BTW, Get Articles Done was still good and I will still use them for UAW submissions… but for content I want on a site, content I want to read well, I’m going to be using Human Rewriter (That’s my link if you want to use it to sign up).
The hardest part when it comes to outsourcing is finding a good person or good group of people to outsource to, and with these guys, who I hope will stick around for a while, I feel I’ve now got that element of confidence. In fact, I’m now considering going all out with outsourcing after this and just outsourcing ALL my infobarrel backlinks to my hubs to them. If I make 300 hubs and outsource 150 Infobarrels which are just re-writes of 1/2 my hubs….at $3.70 for the average 450-500 word article, I’m looking at $555. Quite a lot of money…I really only have Ben’s experience to base this investment on, but I’m willing to try it out. It will save me literally a week’s worth of work too.
BTW, if you use this, it’s billed by the sentence. Don’t use semicolons and make sure you extend your really short sentences by turning the periods into comas. I usually get my 450-500 word articles down to $3.40-$3.80.
As far as what I did today…I wrote up 5 more hubs so I now had 40 hubs I needed to post up(including the 16 I outsourced)…I only got around to posting up 20, so I’ll need to spend 2 hours doing the other 20 to get my total Hub count up to 140. I’m a bit behind what I expected to have done but I’ll be making up for it with some outsourcing. I also spent some time looking for new Hub niches and FINALLY found some more..this is what I did:
1. Go to Google Product Search
2. Look at the listed items for recent searches
3. Look for items which probably cost a lot or you think would result in a high CPC
4. Search for them in the Google Keyword Tool and find out what their CPC is and if they’d make good Hubs
5. Go back and click “Search Products” to get a new list of products to check through.
I did this and found about 12 potential niches.
BTW, I had this asked via PM, but wanted to answer it here. If you’re wondering why I’m suddenly switching from Sniper Sites to Adsense Hubs, The reason is, I want to diversify…I want to make my income more stable. With Clickbank, there are days I can make $0 or only 1 sale, which is not fun. Although if I look at it on a week by week basis, it seems more stable, I want to get daily income.
I’ve also seen the amazing potential of it from speaking with Ben who’s making somewhere around $80/day after around 2 motnhs I believe and I want to get in on that action..
I’ll probably be doing other stuff as well after all this to diversify even more, like maybe Adsense Snipers(outsourcing with these guys would be great for this) or Amazon Snipers(like what Niche Market Ninja is doing)…
Earnings For Today:
$27.12 – Sale for a site in the main sniper niche
Hops = 661
Adsense = $3.64 (Note, 6 of the 9 previous days I’ve made money off of my Hubs…nothing substantial, I’ve probably made around $13 in total since I put up my first 10 hubs over a month ago, but it’s still too early..need to wait 2 weeks after posting all my latest hubs before I can expect anything..backlinking should help)
Well, looks like the hops have finally reached past 700, today I clocked in at 716 hops :>
Other than that, I finished off my last 3 sniper sites and now am finally going to be focusing my energy on building hubs…
I’m going to need to spend a good deal of time tomorrow researching various niches to jump into for the hubs. I want to start off putting hubs in as many niches as I can so that I find out which are the good niches to focus on early on.
I’m also going to be outsourcing some UAW articles over the next little bit, gotta go figure out how many articles will need to be outsourced and also come up with what keywords they should target before I outsource them.
Once I’ve got a good idea of what niches are going to be profitable, I’ll start writing the hubs..I’m hoping that after all is said and done, I can pull in at least a solid 2k/month from Clickbank and another 3k/month from Adsense via Infobarrel and Hubpages..
After I do my hubpage and Infobarrel spree, I may then consider other ventures, like possibly creating adsense sniper sites or amazon sites geared around product keywords like what the Niche Market Ninja is doing…But first things first…
I still have a few other possible sniper sites I can create in this niche, although I’m going to keep them on the back burner for now, I need a break from the sniper sites…I’ve created 116 Sniper sites thus far…
Earnings For Today:
3 Sniper site sales, $16.61, $16.61 and $27.12(this one is from a site I put up on the 23rd of June)
Hops = 716
Adsense = $6.49 (Hubpage clicks in here)
Additional Notes For The End Of The Sniper Spree:
Just want to make a note here…George speaks of making somewhere in the range of $200-500 per sniper site, however in my experience after 100 odd sniper sites for keywords with searches per month of 3k-14k EXACT match, this is not the case. Whenever I make these sniper sites, I expect them to at best generate 1-3 sales/month..Out of all my sniper sites I’ve ever created, this has been the norm, and I have a lot of sites ranking in the top 1-5 positions for page#1.
Additionally, I don’t expect to see all my sites bringing in that, usually it’s only like 1/3 of my total sniper sites that bring in those sales each month. That’s not to say only 1/3 are profitable, some sites may only make a sale every other month and who knows, perhaps more sites will become profitable as they age and I generate more backlinks…but this has been my experience thus far.
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)
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
