Day 148 – You Will NOT Believe What Happened Today!

September 30th, 2009


I still can’t believe it.


I had been writing up 30 articles a day for the last 2 days as you know and submitting them to Ezines.  What I found is that apparently the more articles you submit in 1 go the faster they get accepted or something, because each of those batches of 30 articles basically went live the same day or the very next day..

What I did with those 60 articles in total was link back to about 15 of my adsense snipers, spreading it out among the main page as well as the inner pages.

With 2 links per article, I was aiming to have 12 backlinks to the main domain and 3 backlinks each the the inner pages.  I haven’t gotten that done for all of them as of yet, but the plan is to get that base level of advertising done then add even more article backlinks once I have that solid base setup..

As you know my income from adsense has usually been around $5-10/day and that yesterday I went up to $19.93, have a look at this (click image for larger version):

I was going nuts!!!

I couldn’t even concentrate enough to get my 30 articles for today written, I was refreshing my adsense account every 5 minutes!

I checked my Ezine Articles to see if maybe it was referred Ezine clicks, but out of all these 60 articles, I only got 8 clicks through to my websites which is not even close to accounting for this.

It seems as if the rankings for my sites and internal sites went up and I got a surge of traffic due to all these high PR Ezine backlinks!

I just started with this whole XFactor method a little over 2 weeks ago, Sept 12th and only made 15 or so sites, I can’t believe I’m seeing these kinds of results at this point!  Hopefully this new income level continues…

Now that I made this huge chunk of money, I’ve changed my priorities…I want to play it a bit safe here and flesh out some of my existing sites beyond 5 keywords and make additional pages for them.  I’m only going to be doing it for the domains that I created that didn’t target a product keyword domain though(ex: I’ll develop additional pages for a site like instead of, the reason for this is you never know if some sort of copyright problem will arise with the latter domain.

As far as what I did today, I got 30 more articles written and I submitted the 30 articles I had written from yesterday.  I’ll probably take a break from the promotion soon though to build up the additional pages.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $63.03 – 3 CB sales, none for the troublesome product though…I’m getting the feeling that it is the new sales page after all and that the new one isn’t converting as well
  • Hops = 269(new) / 545(old)
  • Adsense = $42.91
  • Total = $105.94

Day 131 – 50 Pending Ezines + Content Done For 1 More Sniper

September 13th, 2009

Ewoks vs. Predator

I spent a lot of time today just finishing posting up all the Ezine Article backlinks for my original 5 adsense snipers, I also posted up 6 Ezines linking back to my latest sniper which was built totally in line with XFactor’s system(submitted 36 Ezine Articles in total today).

At this time I now have 50 pending Ezine Articles which is just crazy…

I’ve noticed today that one of my sites has raised in rank to the #1 position for it’s keyword, no doubt due to the Ezine submissions…and it’s performed well for me today.. In fact, since a bunch of my Ezines I had submitted earlier went live today, I’ve had 4 of my snipers bring in some dough today.

I only hope that with the Ezine Submissions, I’m able to get a stable influx of cash from all of these sites.  I’m definitely going to be spending a lot more time on each one of my sites, no more just pumping out sites…I’m going to do what it takes to make these produce daily/consistent results for me.

Aside from that, I also was able to get the content done for my next site.  I’m spending more time on writing up my content these days as I want it to be quality, not just articles I rushed out so that my sites will each be more solid.  I’m also making sure each post on the site is close to 500 words.

Again, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when that whole lot of Ezines goes live…

I’m feeling pretty good about this way of making money..just so long as the Ezine backlinks provide enough link juice to bring me up in rankings so I can see consistent daily earnings. If not, I can always do a run of SENuke, use UAW or use other article directories and see what happens.

Earnings For Today:

  • $43.26 – 2 cb sniper sales
  • Hops = 290(new) / 550(old)
  • Adsense = $9.22 (Adsense snipers did well today)

Day 130 – XFactor Site Up + 20 Ezines

September 12th, 2009

Joe Rogan on DMT “It’s like mushrooms times a million plus aliens.”

Today I was able to finally figure out all of X Site Pro 2!  Man, that took me a day and a half, but I wanted to make sure I understood ever facet of that program.  I was able to figure out how to get an RSS feed setup and I submitted that to a bunch of RSS directories…I also pinged my site at Ping Goat and bookmarked it with Bookmarking Demon.

Another thing I did was I scheduled some of the posts to post at a future date.  For XSitePro to do this though you need to leave it on otherwise it won’t be able to upload at the time specified.

But now that I’ve figured it out, and I’m being more picky with my niches and I’ve realized I can pump out these Ezines at a good speed, I’m feeling really good about this whole project and it’s ability to earn me some money.

Today I noticed some of my adsense sites have been getting clicks, more than usual…I believe that it’s due to some of my Ezine Articles going live (only 5 ….)

Well, aside from getting XSitePro figured out and putting up a site, I was also able to write up 20 Ezines…I think I’m going to do these in huge batches rather than doing them 12 at a time (12 for each site) since it’s much easier to just pump a bunch out in 1 sitting.

I’ve still only got 5 of my Ezine Articles approved, it’s taking quite a long time even though I’m Platinum, I don’t know whats up with Ezines lately, I submitted some of these articles back on Monday, they’ve gotten lax.

Well, here’s hoping that just pure article marketing can blast these sites to the top…

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Hops = 261(new) / 504 (old)
  • Adsense = $4.73 (Hubs = $2.35) + some $ from 2 of my adsense snipers

Day 128 – Did A Massive Amount Of Research

September 10th, 2009

Joe Rogan vs. A Female Heckler

OK, so today I spent upwards of 8 hours just researching various niches both within Micro Niche Finder, Google and the Google Keyword Research Tool.  I was extra picky with the keywords I picked out, I wanted to ensure that the keywords I choose are ones that I can rank for extremely easily, so I crossed out any keywords that may have presented some challenge.  This made my whole keyword research phase a lot longer, it also made it hard to find several keywords in the same niche since I was being more stringent.

In the end though, I ended up finding about 93 keywords in 14 niches.  Now I probably won’t even use all of these keywords, I’ll again be further filtering these and picking the best out of the lot.

These keywords are not only going to serve as my main domain name/main page, but also as some of the supplementary pages.  Given that, I’ve still got a lot more research to do, but this should keep me busy for a while.

Researching for extensive periods of time really helps to give you a better understanding of this whole adsense sniper system as you see the various different niches and levels of competition you’re going to have to deal with in each one.  You gain more confidence and perspective on how you’re going to structure everything and where you’re likely going to wind up ranking for each keyword and how many backlinks it’s likely going to take to get yourself to the top.

Also, after doing so much research looking for only the BEST keywords you know you’ll rank for, you feel a lot more confident about the outcome of each individual site you work on, rather than just confidence on the project as a whole, which in turn leads to less hesitancy to put in time promoting each one extensively, so this new system just might work out better than the old shotgun approach.

Now after having done all this research, I wrote up 5 articles for 1 site in a somewhat technical it took longer than usual to get those articles written.  Tomorrow I’m going to put up my first site completely in line with XFactor’s system…it will take me a while to do the first few sites as I’m not used to using XSite Pro, but once I figure it out, the site creation should go by a lot faster and smoother.

Earnings For Today:

  • $48.69 – 2 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 264(new) / 512 (old)
  • Adsense = $4.35 (hubs = $0.16) + some $ from an adsense sniper

Day 127 – Niche Research

September 9th, 2009

I’ve decided I’m going to change my usual approach…normally when creating sites, be it CB sites or Hubpages, I would just try and bust out as many as I could per day and would focus more on quantity over quality…

Now since each of these adsense sniper site’s done in the way John goes over requires some work writing articles for backlinking, I want to ensure that pretty much every one of my sites is successful.  So I’ve decided to become far more picky and spend significantly more time looking for the perfect keywords to go after.

This means that on my heavy research days I won’t have as much quantifyable work done here to report, so things won’t be as interesting for you guys, but hopefully being extra picky here with these next few adsense snipers is going to pay off…

I noticed when doing my research that there were plenty of other people running with XFactor’s program as I found several sites with the same theme during my keyword research….and this was keyword research into niches that he didn’t even mention in his book.

Aside from that, I did see the odd automatic Amazon site which the Niche Market Ninja teaches…

Well, aside from research, today I also submitted 18 Ezine Articles for some of my Adsense Sniper Sites….I still have 30 to post up which I’ll likely end up doing tomorrow.

Earnings For Today:

  • $105.07 – 4 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 374(new) / 730 (old analytics) …This is a new high in hops for me according to the old analytics
  • Adsense = $5.92

I’ve earned the most I’ve ever earned in a week this past week…$678.45:

Day 126 – 42 Ezine Articles Done Today

September 8th, 2009

Got this one from MikeM..

So in sticking with the whole XFactor method, I decided to write up some Ezine Articles for my 5 pre-existing adsense snipers.  The great thing about doing Ezines the way John has laid out is that it takes you very little time to pop each article out…in fact at my peak I was getting about 11 articles done an hour/1 article every 5-6 minutes:

Thus using this system I was able to pump out a total of 42 articles total today.  This in combination with the 18 I had already done makes for a total of 60 articles, 12 for each of my 5 sites.

I’m going to be posting these articles up on Ezines over the next 2-3 days and I’m also going to get started on some new adsense sniper sites.  I’m going to spend a bit more time than I would otherwise on the research aspect considering how much time is going to go into the promotion of each of these sites.

I truly hope that all these Ezine Articles will be enough to finally give me some decent results out of my snipers which thus far are yielding inconsistent clicks.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $49.22 = Site #1 & Site #3 sale
  • Hops = 397(new analytics system…wow, a new high in hops, I strongly suspect this is due to all  my SENuke runs) / 664 hops(old analytics)

  • Adsense = $4.98 (hubs = $0.07) + some $$ from 2 of my adsense snipers

Day 125 – XFactor Adsense Snipers

September 7th, 2009

Well, I’ve decided I’m going to have a go at XFactor’s course, however before I go starting new sites I figured I’d start it with some of my existing sniper sites.  For that reason today I posted up 12 Ezine Articles to 2 of my sniper sites.  These are each linking back to my main domain as well as 1 additional page.

I’m going to be doing 12-15 Ezine submissions per site and make sure the submissions cover not just the main domain but hit each of the 4 additional pages at least 3 times.  Aside from that, I haven’t figured out what else I will do, but if it’s not submitting to other article directories, it will probably include me doing either UAW submissions or SENuke submissions.

Aside from posting those 12 Ezines up, I also wrote 5 new Ezine Articles and I did one more SENuke submission for one of my sniper sites.  I think I was a bit hasty in saying that I didn’t see much of a change when using it on my main sniper niche as now that some time has gone by, I have seen some slight increases in rankings.

I’m going to continue to write up Ezine Articles for my 5 existing adsense snipers, so that will be about 60-75 Ezine Articles in total…then I’ll start making new sites using XSite Pro.

I’m interested to see what all these Ezine Backlinks are going to do for the sites…

Earnings For Today:

  • $36.65 – 2 sniper site sales
  • Hops = 343(new) / 596(old) seems like the hops have been gradually increasing since around the 2nd of September, likely due to the SENuke submissions.
  • Adsense = $1.58

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)
