    I bought the "Adsense $100k Blueprint" a few weeks ago when it was offered as a pre-launch special offer" to Bring The Fresh members. Here is my review. I don't sell in the IM arena and I'm not promoting the product.

    The product consists of an ebook - the "Blueprint" - plus about 10 'how-to' videos, a download of a custom theme & plugins, and a separate 'extra', an ebook called "The IM Toolbox".

    The main ebook is just over 100 pages, and is incredibly comprehensive. I read another review, I think the one listed at the beginning of this thread, where the guy says something like '100 pages of pure gold' and I have to say I feel the same way.

    It's essentially divided into two parts. The first part goes into how & why it works, and the second part is the actual 'action plan'.

    The first part - including chapters on Adsense, SEO & ranking, niche selection, keyword selection, and judging competition - are some of the clearest things I've ever read on the subjects. I feel like I have a completely new understanding of how these things work now, and because of that feel like I can now 'control my own destiny' as far as ranking sites - not just Adsense sites.

    The second part provides the step-by-step guide to creating the sites.

    The videos are clearly aimed at 'newbies', going over basics like getting Wordpress installed, Google Analytics, etc. If you aren't already comfortable in these areas, they would probably be helpful.

    I've built my first two "Blueprint" sites, trying to follow the plan as closely as I could in order to see if I got the expected results. It's only been a few weeks, but so far it seems to be working as promised, but I would expected it to since I now understand what I'm doing and why.

    The material is done in a way I haven't seen elsewhere - it was actually fun to read - and I didn't feel like I was getting 'old stuff' that's just repackaged. Reading the ebook really opened my eyes to a lot of things I thought I knew. Most it it would apply just as well to any marketing strategy that relies on rankings.

    If there is a downside, it's that this isn't a "quick fix" or something you can buy and be on your way in an hour. It's definitely not a 'magic button' product, but the author says that upfront. It took me a couple of days to get through the whole ebook and digest it, and since then I've re-read some of the chapters to improve my understanding.

    Does it work? It almost becomes besides the point for me. It has given me the confidence that I can now build sites in almost any niche and get them to rank on the first page, whether I use Adsense or any other strategy. All in all, the value for me is extremely high, more that some products I've paid hundreds for (Arbitrage Conspiracy...)

      I got this course a few day ago and must say it's very clear and concise. No fluff whatsoever. Probably one of the best buys I've made this year. 100 page PFD with 8 videos. I understand they are also bringout more videos in the future.

      There is supposed to be a private forum but am waiting to be given the link.

      I highly recommend it.

      And yet, ironically, that is exactly what you got. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just because it's "old stuff" doesn't mean it isn't relevant stuff that works. But the reality is, there's nothing in this product that is unique, or new. Pick high ppc keywords with weak-ish competition, build sites/blogs around those keywords, get links.

      The course is weak when it comes to discussing the best ad layout.....it pretty much doesn't. They say it is very important, and that they have done a lot of testing, tweaking, retesting and optimizing to get things just right. It says you need to do what they do to get their results, but then they don't tell you what it is they're doing to get 8%-50% CTRs. I can tell you the WP template they provide isn't it. In my experience using it on several sites over the past year or more, the CTR is terrible.

      Overall though, it's a decent product. If you do what it says, you should eventually see some success.

        I was pretty surprised to find many areas of the book showed "live" examples of their real sites - with URL's - to illustrate his points. And they're some of the big $$ ones from the salespage video, not 'made for the book' examples.

        That was something that really sold me, the sales page video that said something about being tired off these products where they don't even use their own methods lol! Even still I don't know if I would have been willing to use my own successful sites as 'case studies'.

      There is nothing new in this course. Its what's already mentioned in previous products.

      My friend and mutual consultant bought it. She is not a stickler for following instructions to the letter and has admitted that not all the steps were followed exactly, or in some cases, not done at all. Never the less, she is making money with just one site up and running using the "Adsense 100K" method. She says that she is very excited about it, and will continue to use it. She is very satisfied with the product.

    This is my kind of product.
    I hadn't done anything with AdSense before, and I associated it with crappy micro-sites targeted at ultra-longtail keywords, earning a few cents a month.

    This is a completely different deal altogether. The guide is very down-to-earth and wastes no time with hype or over-promising. It's a very solid guide to picking keywords, creating the right kind of content and basically building medium-sized websites that get a good amount of traffic and earn a good amount for each click.

    It's very cool and I've just dusted off my neglected AdSense account to get started.

      Hi Terry. What you qoted is my opinion of the product.
      I like it a lot. It's a very well put together guide and for me personally, it made the penny drop, concerning AdSense. I never did anything AdSense related before, because I didn't see the potential.

      Now, I'm building AdSense sites and I even have a small challenge going on with some of my subscribers.

      When you say "medium-sized websites" how many pages do you mean?

    I was given the chance to read the $100K Adsense Blueprint, and I agree with the others here saying that the guide is a good one. It's very thorough, and covers every step you need to make money with Adsense. I have failed with making sites to use with Adsense in the past, but I plan to scratch everything I've learned and put the methods in this product into play.

    Hey all,

    I actually have a somewhat unique insight on this product as I was sort of a, 'test subject' if you will...

    Once the co-creators of the BluePrint made the decision they were going to consolidate their knowledge into a product, they contacted me with a request.

    Being fully aware of the natural skepticism people would have towards the real life plausibility of a Joe-Schmo like myself being able to create a powerhouse website using a so called, "BluePrint", they asked me if I would take their raw guide and do just that.

    Obviously I accepted, and my objective was simple- build a website using a rough outline of their techniques while they focused on refining the actual product into something that would be presentable to the masses; in turn, my website would be the first 100% genuine 'case study' by reaching it's full earning potential in time for the product launch…

    Here's the deal. The product has already launched so I'm about a month behind schedule as my site is still a couple of ranking positions below #1 spot (my primary KW has 9,900 - exact match - searches per month). Building a website of this magnitude certainly requires you to pull your weight in the beginning but is far more rewarding and profitable for me than any 'micro-niche' type site has been, or ever will be.

    With November as the fourth month my site has been 'live' I would like to share with you some of the data I've been producing with my very first Adsense $100k BluePrint site:

    August: $60.49 - http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/2646/aug.png

    September: $298.86 - http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/879/sept.png

    October: $403.79 - http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/307/octs.png

    November: $599.33 - http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/2568/nova0.png

    **August-November Analytics** - http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/8052/any.png

    As mentioned, this site is about one month behind schedule but is still on track for $1,500 - $2,000 per month in pure Adsense profit as soon as I make the final push into #1 position for it's main KW, not bad.

    Considering how greatly refined, groomed and coherent the final $100k BluePrint product currently is, in comparison to the raw text file I was initially given to follow, I'm very, very pleased with the results I'm yielding and certainly foresee a new level of success in the New Year!

      That is good money- that said without knowing all the work involved also.

      "Can you REALLY earn $100/day from one site - in 90 days...?
      How about $300/day from the same site - in 180 days...?
      WE DO! Want to know how? Then keep reading.."

      The blueprint plan is stating $100/day after 90 days but your results are showing $20/day average after 120 days.

      How much work is this to do and maintain and will the income eventually match the advertised claims? Not according to the results thus far.....

        Orseay's last post was made in May 2012 and he last logged in sometime in October 2012. So that would put him in the M.I.A. category. The post that orseay made, the one you quoted, the same one that shows a very respectable representation of earnings he made with AdSense, appears to have been posted in 2010, prior to the Panda/Penguin shakeup. Shit happens, hope he's not in prison or pushing up daisies.

          That was the original reason I bought 100K Adsense Blueprint. Unfortunately for me, about 2 months later, Penguin hit and then Panda. Now Michael doesn't even mention adsense as a viable money making website.

              I will quote you, because I too made a similar post here on WF and my post got deleted out of thin air. Seems cops aren't the only ones who can be corrupted

              Hopefully your post stays so other's dont buy into the hype. The day I mentioned about all the people complaining about never getting their hubs or refunds, my post was deleted, and the entire thread on his forum was deleted as well (i was also banned for awhile).

He peddles products like ready made Authority Hubs, or blueprints with promises of updates. Only there are quite a few people left hanging without authority hub site or refund ($500), and the updates of blueprints never come. If anyone complains on his forum, they get banned, and their posts get deleted. Apparently he has enough clout here, too, to get critical posts removed. Buy his stuff, by all means, but beware of his modus operandi. His word is no good.

    Perhaps you should read your own quotations...

    "WE DO! Want to know how? Then keep reading.."

    ...more specifically, that big two letter word at the beginning, "WE".

    I realize it may seem crazy that after mastering the process of building these sites, the creators of the BluePrint have slightly better results than my very first one.

    $100/day and $300/day within the specified time frames are not fabricated and after I drop the iron on a few wrinkles, will certainly be closer to the outcome of my next build.

    I have a hard time finding anything negative about creating a site that earns $1,500 - $2,000/mth which I can sell for $20k+...

    Pessimism is a dangerous addiction, dude.

      Orseay - Thanks for the post on this project. For me personally if my site was making $600 from Adsense alone after 4 months I would be pretty happy with it. I'm still debating on this course as I would like to ramp up my Adsense earings and this looks to be a pretty thorough course.

      Their quotation is an inference on how much is to be made or should be made; your results differ by 5 times, not a slight difference, so it was brought up for review.

      I hope it works as planned and am considering this as my plan of action.

      Next time think before you get snarky with people for bringing up good/valid points; that kind of tone is undeserved and not appreciated.

      That said> Good Luck with your ventures, you are on your way to a lucrative business. I will likely be following suit in the near future.

        While they obviously want to sell their program and want it to be attractive, I think that was written pretty reasonably. To me, it says "here's what we're able to do using our system. Want to see how we do it, and learn how to do that yourself?"

        Having the course myself, I don't at all feel this is unrealistic, but I also don't expect to build my first site out of the gate and reach $100/day in 90 days.

        Throughout the course the author says very plainly, this is a business model not a 'magic button', and that requires time, effort, and some dedication in order to get all the results they are getting.

        I've recently joined the forum, and they are pretty active and seem to be pretty dedicated to, as they say often, "helping make sure can reach the same results we get".

        It's a Clickbank product, refunds aren't too difficult. I think if you are looking for a really good, well-presented, serious business, and you take the time to read the main book, you'll be pretty thrilled. I was.

          That sounds pretty good.

          I have spent too much time reviewing many mostly incomplete or useless IM programs in the last year so it would be nice to see a complete product. Many were related so that was part of acquiring a library of sorts of related strategies.

          I have not pursued Adsense sites as yet but am interested in this particular model as it could produce some excellent long term, mostly hands off income, if all accounts are on mark.

          I am skeptical for the most part due to the fact that probably 80% of the programs are not worth the money, incomplete or faulty. My Auditor day job entails I assess all information and look for weaknesses in the content and statements; therefore I notice and bring up any Issues that may be outright puffery or marketing lies. It appears on initial review that this product will deliver what it says- albeit not the exact same results stated by the vendors time frame, at least not always. But that is very tolerable if the results show up in a reasonable time thereafter.

          My question to those of you involved with this program. What is involved in applying this format? Are we building large authority sites and the like or is it more digestable and easier to implement than that?

          The money earned is promising as is the fact that these sites can be flipped later for good profit as Owen states; but how much is really involved, is it a better pursuit time wise than other IM attempts?

          Thanks for relating your experiences/reviews with this product so the uninformed can garner the process used in this program. It is important that anyone using the program elaborate a complete as possible assessment and review of the whole plan and not just say I made this amount of money but the back story may be that it took hundreds of hours to earn such.

          Thanks for your time!

It is important that anyone using the program elaborate a complete as possible assessment and review of the whole plan and not just say I made this amount of money but the back story may be that it took hundreds of hours to earn such.

            Thanks for your time!

            Yes, this is an approach that requires time, work and effort, but is not over the top by any means. Once you grasp the concepts and actually begin implementing them, you will love what you do and the work will no longer feel like work.

            For the purposes of my 'test run' everything was done by hand and nothing except the content creation was outsourced (to a college student, not a pennies an hour word butcher); however, with such defined steps and processes, the outsourcing process will be simple for anyone to implement.

            Even without any outsourcing, I was able to thoroughly enjoy the last summer month of August, take two weeks to relocate from Canada to Florida for the winter, and spend a week in Mexico with friends without a worry.

            Tomorrow I am going to Seattle for five days, and at the end of the month I will be going back to Canada for two weeks. The point is, you can work from anywhere when you have a defined strategy and the line separating work from leisure quickly fades - just make sure you hide your laptop from everyone's eyes when you're at the dinner table! :p

                I have heard of Adsense accounts gettting disabled or banned for various/some reasons.

                Is there anything to worry about there as long as one attends to the site properly and doesn't mess around, i.e, fraudulent clicks or other reasons to arouse interrogation?

                Why would some accounts be removed and is it smart to have separate Adsense accounts for this and is that easily done by 1 person?

                Thanks for your time!

      For a long long time.... this is the best IM product I bought from CB. However, this is not a get-rich-quick approach.... the approach used in this course is quite different from other existing Adsense courses I have seen.

      This course recommends us to go for niches where other Adsense courses tell us to avoid... so you will face some competition but that is where the BIG money is made... so targeting the right keywords is key to your success. If you look at the sites used in the blueprint, they are more than 2 years old and the sites have gained some page rank... so be patient and expect to put in some effort.... I can confidently say that the blueprint works if you follow it!

        Indeed wrays.

        If you've trained yourself to identify and recognize only micro-niche type KW's this course will require a little rethinking and 'unlearning', as the main approach is based on the longer term development of bigger, more powerful websites.

        I used to have a spread sheet with hundreds of micro-niche websites and I can tell you right now, the ratio of cumulative work hours - outsourced or not - to the level of reward and value doesn't even compare.

        Allow me to make a hypothetical example:

        I'm not going to point any fingers, but let's just say 'Mr. Negative' is right and my current site doesn't hit $100/day, but rather plateaus at the $50-$70/day which I'm fully prepared for.

        Now, let's assume I didn't learn anything and didn't figure out any ways to improve my next project so I don't do any better with my second one...Boo Hoo! I'm still going to make a site that earns $1,500 - $2,100/mth. Combine that with the first one, and you're pulling in $3-$4k/mth, AND you're sitting on $40-$60k in extremely liquid assets.

        In my humble opinion, the exact-match domain micro-niche stuff is quickly becoming a thing of the past, and unless you're okay with spinning your wheels I would suggest you go for the gusto.

        Furthermore, I think one of the biggest things people are missing with this, is the fact that you can apply the BluePrint techniques to ANY website which relies on SEO and rankings. Adsense just happens to be the easiest, most fundamental way to monetize a website, but any 'big boy' niche with high CPC's also partners with the option of extremely high CPA offers and such.

        If you're not interested in promoting CPA offers and you don't like Adsense, then dominate a high traffic niche and start a drop-shipping business or sell your own product...the options are endless when you can dominate the search engines.

        Cheers,

        Owen

          Mr. Negative is here and available anytime you want an actual constructive criticism or assessment of copy!

          There appears to be less trustworthy, complete products out there than not and hundreds of Warriors and the like can attest and support that view.

          Not all flowers and bunnies out there, especially in the IM field.

          Unwise to blindly follow without some due diligence first.

          Thanks for your input/additional comments on this product Owen, more insight helps.

    As long as you play by the rules, you'll be fine.

    There is of course the odd story of 'innocent' people getting their accounts banned, but for the most part, that is only happening to people who take part in sketchy practices and do things that blatantly go against Google's clearly described Terms & Conditions. ( https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms )

    One safety measure you can take, is specifying your list of 'allowed sites' by making the following simple adjustment to your AdSense account:

    How do I add sites to my Allowed Sites list? - AdSense Help

    Google is smart enough now to know - for the most part - when something is your fault or someone/something else's.

    Absolute worst case scenario, you can register as many LLC's (tax id's) and open as many P.O. Boxes as you want- those two things are all you need to open a new AdSense account!

    Follow the rules though and you'll be just fine.

    Fwiw, one of the early chapters is "About Adsense" which includes an excellent section called "Keeping your Adsense account" with very solid advice, plus links directly to Googles TOS and 'Program Policies'.

    The more I re-read the book, the more I appreciate how well it is written. These guys are definitely not the all-to-typical "say anything to get rich quick" marketers. I would consider the course a thorough, realistic, and achievable business plan, and I'm finding myself applying many of their methods and strategies across all my Internet marketing efforts. For me it's been something of a turning point, from looking for looking for the next 'magic guru system' to feeling like I can now build a real, and lucrative online business career.

      Thanks for adding your comments.

      These types of responses are important and show more inner worth to a product and diminish ones anxiety in pursuing such plans. It is good to hear that these logical and attainable paths are in existence; without killing oneself with mass detail and overly ridiculous amounts of work or attention.

      I have no problems applying 10-20 hours a week at this or other online businesses but did not want to continually refocus from time bandits to other potential income plans each month or two after they clearly prove they won't work as planned.

      This sounds promising and may be either a good singular pursuit or part of a multi pronged approach to remove the Boss from the monthly equation!

    As far as I know, WP Unique doesn't actually make your content unique, it changes the ascii text to unicode in the page source. If someone were to search the content itself, every other indexed copy of it would show up.

    In building a Blueprint site, you would want to use fully unique content for the site itself, though some products like The Best Spinner will do perfectly fine turning your PLR into suitable content.

    There are no upsells, downsells, cross-sells, OTO's, pop-ups, exit blockers, etc... Everything necessary is included, plus some stuff that isn't required but great to have.

    There is a forum which has just launched, already has appx. 150 members and over 500 posts, and some very good, active threads.

    It is about to be launched as an option after purchase of the course, or separately to those who now have the course. It will be a free 7-day trial, then $17/month.

          You did not state facts.

          The promo video on the sales page shows a live login to Escrow.com showing more than $100k revenues, and that on sales of only 4 sites. That is a fraction of the revenues from just a 12 month period, and doesn't even include the daily Adsense revenues, which by itself totals more than $100k. Are you suggesting that is "fake"? This is all very easily verifiable stuff.

      Be very careful about making this sort of accusation. There are *zero* fake screenshots.

      Stock Market Day Trading and Yeast Infection Home Remedies have nothing to do with the Blueprint, they were sites thrown up to take advantage of some individual keyword opportunities that came up. Wild disclaimer: we even own some non-Adsense sites.

      Nor is any of this based "using XFactor's method" unless you consider exact-match domain names to be an "XFactor method". I own his course, respect him and his methods. The Blueprint is an entirely different business model.

      As for the testimonials, *every one* is from someone who reviewed the product and provided *honest* reviews. We have since received dozens and dozens of additional, *unsolicited* *rave* testimonials. Of the comments on this thread, as far as I know, one person has a PLR store - and I have no idea what that might have to do with anything.

    Black Hat Cat,

    I appreciate your comments, and would like to respond. I think what people are finding to be 'new' or 'not the same old stuff' - and we've received dozens of similar sentiments - is the approach we take. To boil it down to such general terms as "find high paying keywords with low competition and build a site" is like saying all product or affiliate marketing models are the 'same old stuff - find something people want, build a site around it, and sell it at a profit'.

    Similarly, while I don't doubt your experience with the layout, by itself the layout is only one factor in your CTR. For instance, the same layout can have a low CTR when used with a product-centric site, and a much higher CTR when used with an 'informational' site.

    We do say exactly what we're doing to get those CTR's - it is 'big picture' equation: the type of site (product-centric vs. informational), plus the targeted keyword phrases ('secondary' informational search keywords), plus the content (decent / mediocre), plus the content layout (predominantly text, no secondary headlines, etc.), plus the layout itself, etc. In this regard, greater success with Adsense is very much a "sum of many parts". When all these factors hit on all cylinders, the results are excellent - and repeatable. That is what we teach - the "how" (and "why") of each relevant factor as we do it ourselves, and putting them all together. This is what our 'formula' is, and we have tried to distill it into a step-by-step process. It becomes a "do what we do, and you can expect similar results".

        I read through the ebook, and it is a solid blueprint.
        You will have to do the work to make it work.

        Everything is step by step.
        How niches are chosen is different from many other adsense courses,
        and worth considering.

        In all fairness if you have been around the seo/link building/adsense block,
        some of the information may be familiar to you, except for niche selection and content writing.

        Overall a good adsense blueprint.

            After buying the course just a week ago the two most apparent aspects that have affected me are these.

            First is what I believe to be the strongest point. I believe the sites described in the course are what the search engines are looking for. I can't imagine any changes that Google might make in the future that could cause these sites to be de-indexed unlike so many auto blog sites that seem to be always on the search engine radar.

            While the sites do take work, that is I feel their strength. Completely opposite from building dozens of auto blogs and hoping Google won't make a human review or the fear that everything you do has to be cloaked or hidden in some way to disguise your methods. Please understand I am not knocking those techniques, I am only trying to point out the difference.

            Someone asked if this would work for new marketers and would it be possible to use PLR. Personally I feel this would be an excellent course for a beginner especially if he or she had not bought lots of other stuff which might serve to confuse. It would take longer to apply than other methods but I feel it would greatly reward those who took the time to learn and apply.

            This in my opinion is a solid approach but it will not work if the attitude is how many of these things can I build quickly with PLR and other methods that will not cause me to have to work very hard or spend time doing research.

            The second aspect of the course is the hardest for me to digest. It is almost completely opposite from all I have learned and studied and applied in other courses. The theme that is advised is, as someone above mentioned, certainly not an award winner to the eye to say the least.

            Although I have great faith in this course and am impressed by it's designers I still have trouble changing some of my current sites over to the recommended theme but I am doing it because I believe that is what makes the theory work. Time and testing will I am confident prove that they are correct.

            Is is probably never a good plan to build a business with just one affiliate program such as eBay partner network, Adsense or Amazon. Even when everything is done properly these programs can disappear as many in Carolina and other states have discovered when the law makers there decided to change the tax laws and drive Amazon out of the area. Many Ebay affiliates have had their dreams dashed when notified their account was canceled without an explanation

            However I believe that Adsense is a solid business model and if efforts were made to promote other programs at the same time this would provide good business insurance.

            I was introduced to this course through a webcast that lasted two hours. Normally I am gone from these things in 30 minutes. However I stayed because of the quality of the information these guys were presenting but was prepared for a super expensive program to be announced at the end. I was surprised at what I believe to be a low price and my belief in the designers was strengthened when I was not subjected to any upsells.

            The forum while new is building daily. My opinion after a week is that this is a very good course presented by two honorable marketers who seem intent on helping anyone willing to do the work to see success. Money well spent in my opinion.

      not really you can always get a keyword with low but quality traffic and try to rank for it and it will pay off aftersome time since the people who search for it are serious about it. I hope this helps you

      Hey everyone...

      I have been with a100k for about 8 months now and have built 3-4 sites from scratch using their system and communicating on their forum. Just yesterday I sold one of those sites on flippa for $4200-00. That site was making around $400 a month. (And I am going to help the new owner make it a $800 a month site). One of my other sites is making about $600 a month and the other one was a flop (boohoo)... The 4th one is new but will be the best of all of them (now that I know the system so well..it aint hard, just do what they tell ya).... I have tried all kinds of systems and internet marketing methods before but this is the one that I chose to stick with... and that's because it works... not just works now..but works tomorrow too..... it's simple and it's good. The very best thing about it, is that they change with the industry... actually I would go so far as to say Michael is a leader in the industry.... Everyone helps each other and if something sucks, someone will tell you so.. and same if it works... If you want to scam and trick your way to misguided glory then this is not for you, but if you want to build worthy sites that actually make money that you can be proud of selling and also, may actually gain in ranking after a panda update then you should join us..... I am staying.. this is the way forward for me.

    Chet,

    Thanks for your honest and considered review.

    TiffanyB,


    During our 'pre-launch' we set up a few offers for the forum. I'm happy to say that while relatively new, we already have a few hundred active members, over 1000 threads, and some very worthwhile conversations between some very motivated and serious marketers. It seems to be pretty well split across 'newbie' and seasoned IMers.

    We are emailing all new customers with a 7-day free trial for the private forum.

    You should see an email from us today.

    Best,

    Adam

    UPDATE

    It's been close to 2 months since I bought the Adsense 100k Blueprint.

    The first week or two I read through the materials, but didn't really start on my project, so it's been somewhere around 6 weeks since I really began.

    First thoughts - I have to say my whole outlook has changed. One thing this course did for me is make a lot of things really clear for me. If I think back to before I read the book, I realize I either didn't have a clue in some very critical areas, or what I thought I knew was wrong or incomplete.

    I tried to follow the outline given - I began with some brainstorming, decided on my main topic, and found my "primary" keyword phrase. From there, I developed my "keyword phrase group" of 7 additional keywords (8 in total). I registered my domain and opted to write the initial content myself. I followed the guidline for how to write the content and optimize it.

    My site was indexed pretty quickly, and I spent the next few weeks doing the 'action plan' - essentially doing basic backlinking to all my "keyword target" pages.

    At this point, 2 of my chosen keywords have reached the first page, and I'm getting some consistent traffic. I realize (after the fact) that I didn't choose all my keywords as well as I could have, but that's because I didn't follow their recommendations.

    I started getting some clicks pretty quickly, and for the last 7-8 days have averaged about $8 per day. I know it isn't a lot, but I'm very psyched! If I get all my targeted keywords to do equally well, I will have a $20 or $25/day site, which for me is terrific, and much better that I had been doing for one site.

    Overall, I've been getting the "promised" results, though in some areas I haven't been as diligent as I could have, opting to do what I wanted to do rather than what was suggested.

    I've also joined the forum, and it's starting to blossom. It seems as though they must be on there all day & night since almost every new posting gets at least one reply. And many of them are long, detailed, in-depth responses. It's almost unfortunate that this seems to be the exception rather than the rule, but I haven't had this kind of support on other purchases.

    All in all, I'm excited by my progress, and plan to start on my second site after Christmas. More than the specific success with my new site, I feel really empowered by what I've learned.

    Kim

    PS - It seems John's new book (xfactor) is finally out. I'm going to get it just to see if there are any tidbits I can use to improve what I'm doing now, though knowing what I now know, it's hard to imagine it will be anything earth shattering.

    UPDATE: I've reached my goal of $25/day from my blueprint site (my most recent "7-day average" was $26.11), and I'm really excited!

    I'm averaging about 65 visitors per day - though it goes up during the week and dips over the weekend - from 3 of my targeted keywords that are now on Page 1. Most of it comes from my first "primary" keyword which is hovers between #3 and #4 (the other two are near the bottom of Page 1). Since I am continuing with my backlinking efforts as per the provided "action plan", I'm confident I'll get my other targeted keywords onto page 1 eventually.

    It's not a million dollars, but I feel that it's pretty stable so far, and more importantly, that I can repeat it over and over.

    I also got through xfactors huge new adsense book. I found a lot of good information that I can use, but overall I don't like the direction as much as the $100k blueprint. Among other things, he recommends going after a slew of longtail keywords, where the blueprint course emphasizes focusing your efforts on getting good rankings for a small number of specifically targeted 'keyword phrases'. The benefit of this approach is that it is more predictable, and if I've chosen my keywords well, I know what I can expect, and roughly how long it will take. The blueprint course does suggest going after more of those longtail keywords, but only after getting ranked for the main ones you are initially targeting. I also feel the blueprint course is much more of a clear step-by-step plan which is something I needed.

    I also have to say the blueprint forum has become a fantastic resource - almost "one-on-one" coaching from the author, plus some other very smart people. Whenever someone asks a question, there's usually a pretty quick but very detailed reply, and they've been adding a lot of "goodies" and freebies. The other people on the forum seem pretty serious about their efforts for the most part, which makes it feel like a community.

    My plan now is to take what I've learned and set myself a goal of launching a new site every two weeks - 2 per month - throughout the winter (I have already started on my second site). I plan to keep half of the sites and sell half, and hope to reach a combined $100 per day with the ones I keep, by next summer. I feel that's a realistic goal.

        But if you want to know how serious I am about this course, here's a story I'm almost embarrassed to tell. I bought the product on December 29. On January 4, I found an affiliate for the course offering a lifetime membership to the forum as a bonus. So I bought it again through that link. I have not refunded the first purchase. Nor do I intend to.

        So that's my vote for whatever it's worth.
        That in itself speaks volumes, brother.

        The book is well laid out

        I also have this and recommend it. Adam and company are very supportive in the forum. You will probably pick up a new trick or two just by going there.

    Thanks Terry, it's very exciting for me!

    I'm getting a click through rate a little over 16%, and while my overall average is a little over $2 per click, it seem that most clicks are around $1.50, with a few $3-$4 clicks most days.

    The big thing for me is that I never got numbers like that, and wouldn't have considered that realistic - but then again I was doing adsense all wrong. The blueprint course essentially "re-educated" me. I'm doing things very differently now, and seeing things in a very different light.

      My earnings have been stable since I the beginning of the year, averaging $20-$25 per day on my first dedicated effort from this course. I have two more 'blueprint' sites that I've started, but they are still pretty new and don't have much in the way of rankings yet.

      I expect they'll perform similarly; perhaps a bit better as I was a little more diligent in my research the second time around.

      My feeling is, if you read the ebook, you will have a very good and firm understanding of how to build and rank profitable sites - the rest then is up to you.

      Happy New Year to all!

      I've dedicated one of my projects to this system as I mentioned earlier in the thread and have had great results.

      It's been a few months now since I launched and my site has plateaued at just under $700/mth as I've had some difficulties making the last critical jump from #3 position to #1 for my main target KW however, I've had other things going on and haven't focused all of my attention on obtaining that position.

      I'll be sure to update when I do eventually end up in #1 spot!

      Best of luck!

        I bought the Adsense $100k Blueprint for 3 weeks ago because I really needed to make some money. I am unemployed for the moment.

        The best thing is that Adsense $100k Blueprint doesn't promise you to make 100 or 1000$ tomorrow if you buy it. They make it very clear that you need to do the "hard work" before you can retire and live a luxury life

        I am very excited to make some money with adsense The recommend to use Market Samurai in your keyword research but a much better tool is MicroNicheFinder. I think this tool is the best and in only 30 minutes I've found all my great keywords!

        Also, I have created a review website about this amazing program there you can read what it is and what I think about it.

        Hey everyone,

        When I last posted on here in the beginning of January my goal was to get my first A$100k site up to #1 position where it would reach maximum earning potential..

        Well, I didn't get to #1 position, but the site remained in #3-4 spots for the last month and a half where it earned just under $700 again.

        Last week I entered an escrow agreement to sell the site for $13,000.

        The funds were released to me earlier today after the 7 day inspection period successfully came to an end and everyone's happy!

        Although the site's earnings and positioning fell slightly short of my initial goals (partly my own fault), these kinds of sites are really solid overall and I think more and more investors are beginning to realize the long term value attached to them, hence my selling price of 20x monthly earnings.

        Good luck to all!

          That's fantastic - I just started digging in to this product and really enjoying what it has to offer.

          My intent is to take what is taught and apply it to some of my low performing sites in order to turn them into bigger income producers with the intent of possibly flipping them in a similar manner such as what you have done.

          $13,000.....that's a lot of cheddar!!! Always good to see someone apply what is taught in a product or course.

          Owen,

          Thanks for the progress update - I'm glad to hear that you still consider this a success, despite not achieving your original goals.

          The great thing about these types of projects is that regardless of whether they meet our expectations in the end, we always learn new tactics that can be applied to future endeavors.

          Perhaps you could tell us a little more about how you were able to stay motivated throughout the entire site build - especially during the beginning stages when there was no traffic or revenue coming in.

          I know that a lot of new internet marketers struggle with this.

          Congrats!

          -Adam

            Hi Elis,

            The forum is $17/mo., but there is a 7-day trial.

            In terms of keyword programs, we go over both free & paid tools, and while we do use Micro Niche Finder a lot, it is absolutely NOT necessary, and everything we talk about can be done with just the free tools. In some cases, they're preferred.

            Fwiw, Market Samurai's keyword research module - the main keyword research tool - is entirely free.

            As for backlinking, we spend a LOT of time going over what, how, where, and why, plus we provide a complete "Action Plan" that walks you day-by-day and week-by-week through building your backlinks.

            I should also mention, EVERYTHING is 100% applicable to any type of business that relies on search traffic i.e. affiliate marketing, opt-in list building, etc.

            I also sent you a PM.

            Michael

                Quick Question:

                After reading the Blueprint I am a little confused. Should the main page of the website be a Post or Page. Thanks for your help.

                  We use a very specific structure, for very specific reasons. The main thrust of A100k is to create a keyword phrase group, and get Page 1 rankings for each.

                  Sites are based around the chosen keyword phrase group, which itself is based on a 'primary' target keyword phrase.

                  The 'primary' is the focus of your homepage and domain name, and would be a 'Post'. All the other keyword phrases become the basis for a 'Page'.

                  The reason is so that we can focus all our backlinking efforts on their respective Pages/URLs. The homepage 'acts like' the 'Page' for your primary keyword phrase.

                  There is very good group of discussions about these concepts in the forum as well.

    After reading all the rave reviews in this thread, I went ahead and bought it. I don't know what you folks are raving about. This is the same stuff I have read at least a half-dozen times. I will be damned if I can figure where they come up with the $100K thing from. I didn't see anything in the video that even referenced how they think you can make $100, in a week, month, or even a year.

    I think you folks are crazy. There is nothing new here.

    There must be an awful lot of 'crazy' folks then, as there are hundreds of people who feel this is a great plan for success. On the Blueprint forum, there are more & more people experiencing success with it - many for their first time.

    Something doesn't have to be "new" to be good or effective. Whether it's Adsense, affiliate marketing, etc., the fundamentals of effective keyword research, SEO, and business building are the same. That said, for many people, understanding the true nature of rankings & traffic for instance -are- new. We get many, many comments to the effect of "I finally understand how this all works, and what I was doing wrong."

    The Blueprint provides a very clear and thorough examination of the 'what' and 'why', along with a solid plan of action covering the 'how'. It is a guide to copying a successful business model, without having to learn everything through expensive trial & error. We don't claim to offer a 'Magic Bullet', but rather a tested & optimized plan for creating a 6-figure Adsense business.

        I gave up hoping for a completed v3.1 of the $100K AdSense Blueprint long ago. The forum came bundled with my purchase and was by far the most valuable part of it. Forum has a lot of really good people who were super helpful. But as time passed it became quite obvious that things were falling apart including any hope I would see a real v3.1 which would make the blueprint usable. Anyone who questioned Michael on this or any other issue was completely written off and most of the time bullied by Michael.

        He does not seem to know how to accept criticism shown by his latest "sanitizing" of the forum completely of any questions related to his business. Eventually I had enough and asked to be removed from the mailing list and the forum. Only thing I will miss are the good forum members. But there are plenty of other places to get good info on IM, including WarriorForum. I wish everyone well on Michael's forum and hope that all those waiting for refunds receive them soon.

        Good luck!

    I can't speak to the value of this in absolute terms since I've been so busy the last two weeks I haven't been able to do much more than make a dent in my first site using this plan.

    However, I will say that I'm very impressed with it. I am quite happy with the growth of my adsense earnings now but, knowing you can always do better, I bought this product. I quickly discovered a couple of mistakes I've been making and I have to believe that concentrating on improving those areas will help.

    I've bought several adsense products and many of them were valuable.

    But if you want to know how serious I am about this course, here's a story I'm almost embarrassed to tell. I bought the product on December 29. On January 4, I found an affiliate for the course offering a lifetime membership to the forum as a bonus. So I bought it again through that link. I have not refunded the first purchase. Nor do I intend to.

    So that's my vote for whatever it's worth.

    Hi Simon,

    My first Blueprint site, which is now pretty steady at $20-$25/day, is based around a "keyword phrase group" of 5 keyword phrases. I have a 'target Page' for each (with my homepage as the 'target' for my primary phrase).

    I add 2 posts per week, and have a total of about 34 pages (Pages plus posts).

    That was my first Blueprint effort, so naturally it took longer. My second effort already has about half that, and I only started it a few weeks ago.

    Fwiw, I have 3 Page 1 rankings on my first site. Once the other two hit Page 1, and as all 5 move up on Page 1, I expect the site to reach $40/day. Perhaps the most valuable thing I've gotten from the course is the confidence that I can now find and properly assess 'valuable' keyword phrases, and rank for them consistently.

    Before I purchase, can you elaborate on the "footprint" aspect of the the theme that's used with your product? My point - if everyone's using the same theme, will that be an issue with G?

        I'm pretty confident that theme footprints aren't a concern; any good or popular theme has thousands of installs.

        What I think is going to be a bigger concern going forward is Google's new/renewed emphasis on rooting out 'junk'. Required reading:

        Google's Plan to Combat Search Spam
        Official Google Blog: Google search and search engine spam

        The Blueprint is written to pretty 'white hat' standards, with the goal of long-term sustainability. Our belief & philosophy is that it's no harder to do things 'right'. To date, I have not had a single Blueprint site deindexed or otherwise penalized, nor lose rankings (occassional slight shifting aside). The sites we've built following the Blueprint have stood the test of time, with many being over a year old and still retaining their rankings, traffic, and earnings.

        As with anything else, you 'reap what you sow' - if you make the effort to produce reasonably high quality sites, you won't run into too many problems. If you produce reasonably high quality sites based on the 'right' niche & keyword research, and follow a 'good' ranking plan, you'll end up with good, sustainable positions, traffic, & earnings.

          Thanks for the reply.

          I couldn't agree more about the quality content issue. When I first started in IM - I found myself going down the route of "grey hat." One day I realized - it was a pain the rear to constantly stay ahead of what G might be looking to de-index. From that point on - all I build is quality "white hat" sites.

          Cheers!

            I couldn't agree more - so much so that we posted a "Where We Stand On..." sticky thread on our forum.

          Michael,

          I'm a bit concerned about whether you guide newbies as far as what type of Adsense Ad works best. There seem to be SO many different formats and testing con sometimes be more confusing than enlightening, in MHO. Do you address this?

          Also, do you address positioning of Adsense?

    I'd just like to join the debate and say I bought the product just after Christmas. I like what it says and how it says it. I think what's also good is that innovations are added as and when at no extra charge and much of the optimisation has been done for you. This weekend I'm about to get my first Adsense site up live. I'll keep you posted as to my progress.

    Thanks Mike, Kev, Jim, and Kim!

    I read a lot of the reviews for other product launches, and I have to say - some of those guys make it easy to look good! A decent product, at a decent price, that makes realistic claims & promises, and delivers decent value - really, how unusual should that be? Yet we hear all of the headaches, heartaches, and frustration with so many products.

    As you can see from the promo video, I tried to key in to that issue exactly. Fwiw, the result is a sky-high converting sales page (note to affiliates...).

    Thanks again for all the positive comments, and for those of you who trusted us enough with your wallet to purchase.

    Just want to say I invested in this course and I've gotta say it's a really cool course if you want to start out making money to Adsense.

    I make money by other means but never delved into the world of Adsense before, and it's really opened my eyes to how profitable it is to own your own Adsense Empire.

    What I like about it is it's a solid long term system to making money. No flash in the pan technique that'll get you banned from Google.

    So if you're willing to put the effort into this and not expect instant results then I recomend it.

    Hope this helps

      Thanks for that James,

      I bolded some of your post since you hit the nail on the head. Any good business model will require a commitment of time & effort, and anyone who says otherwise is probably trying to sell something.

      The rewards of course are long-term, sustainable success.

          Hi Katie,

          The course can be applied to any type of site or blog.

          The core of A100k is about understanding how to choose the 'right' keyword phrases, build pages around them, then how to get them ranked on Page 1.

          While the business model is Adsense, it applies equally well to any business model that uses search engine traffic. Once you understand how to do it, you can choose your keywords and get pages ranked for Adsense, affiliate products, squeeze pages, etc.

            Almost all information is available for free somewhere, in some capacity.

            This course compiles a ton of that information on a specific topic (adsense,) organizes it, cuts out the fluff, gives a specific plan of action to get things working.. as well as a wordpress theme to use which I would have paid for in and of itself. This takes hours of work and trial and error.. and in many ways I've always had *too much* information without a clear plan of what specifically to do.

            I'm very happy with my purchase of this course, which came largely based on what I've read here.

            PS- I am NOT an affiliate!

    After three pages of glowing testimonials about how well the course has been written and how the course makes sense, I only see only 1 person actually testifying to any results with it. Some of us are a bit cynical and would love other "success stories" to contribute.

    I am curious, has anybody actually executed what is in the course? And if so, how are you doing with those sites so far?

      Let me add my opinion about this course (which I own). I purchased three days ago, I've read/watched everything. If you want to achieve success with Adsense - this the course to do it.

      Here's why;

      Three years ago I was trying to get into IM, I understood all the various pieces, but I couldn't figure out how to string them all together. I eventually found a course from Liz Tomey that showed - soup to nuts - how to build a Wordpress site monetized with Adsense. That video course was fantastic! All of the sudden, I knew how to use FTP and what an .htaccess file is.

      With this knowledge, I wandered off and built my first site. Long story short, the site was optimized with quality - original content, it had on/off page SEO done correctly...it made money. In fact, within 6 months it had achieved PR3 and a sky high CTR and conversion rate. Now - you might notice I keep using the past tense...well...when I built that site I didn't have very much experience, and I made several mistakes. The first mistake was going after low paying keywords - if I remember correctly - when someone clicked on ads...I paid them The other dumb thing I did was take the site down - I wanted to change the monetization - I just didn't know any better.

      I have learned from my mistakes

      The reason for the story above is to give some validity to my review, I now know how to build Adsense sites, and this course is spot on. It teaches exactly what you need to know to work with Adsense. The correct points are taught and emphasized. In my humble opinion - if you do what your taught - you will make money. Also, since this course emphasizes quality/original content, you'll end up with a site that gets better with age and can be built out to something more robust.

      I'd like to touch on how the material is presented. Let me say first, I was an air traffic controller for eight years in the Navy. After I finished drilling holes in the middle of Indian Ocean I went back to college for my degree - I ended up in the dental industry for a million years I was the wax/metal production manager for the largest dental laboratory in the world. My point - I know how to train people! I can take a reasonably intelligent person and within 6 - 9 months have them making between 40-70K as a dental tech. I can do this because I know how to present information, it's a skill that's critical to everything we do in life - it's merely communication.

      So....back to my point of how the material is presented. I have a few minor objections, but I would give the material an 8 out of 10. My biggest objections being the lack of continuity from the PDF to the videos. I would also like to see the addition of a flowchart or "quick start checklist." I have access to the forum, perhaps the "quick start checklist" is in there and I haven't seen it. My points above are minor, and in now way preclude me from giving this course my full recommendation.

      Let me close with the most important aspect of all of this...you have to remain focused and take action! DO NOT allow yourself to be distracted my the next bright shiny object.

      You will succeed!

    Hi Apollo,

    I appreciate the sentiment; I've had the same question reading some other really positive reviews.

    I would guess that many who wrote positive reviews are now working on their sites and probably not revisiting this thread - though I'd bet if those same people felt it didn't work, they'd be back here in a hurry to say so

    I can tell you many people talk about their progress and successes in the forum, and there are a number of people who are blogging about their progress. That said, and this is emphasized in the course, this isn't a 'quick fix' or 'magic bullet'. It is a long-term business model. Some people are applying themselves actively 'full-time', while some taking their time going through the steps. The basis of the revenue is search traffic. It can take from a few weeks to a couple of months to get your pages ranked on Page 1 - the objective of the Blueprint. That said, there are a number of people who have "dived right in" and are already earning good - and steadily growing - revenues after 3-6 weeks.

    If you would like, I'd be happy to set you up with a temporary forum account so you can poke around, ask questions, etc., and invite you to report back your impressions here.

      Michael,

      I'm seriously considering purchasing your product, but as you might imagine have bought before to discover the material was really over-hyped. If your offer is open to me as well, I would really love to visit the forums and make a educated in depth decision.

      Just so you know, I've had my site for almost 3 years, 120+ pages and my Adsense income is next to none. I'm now in the product development stage but will gladly put that on the back burner to dive into Adsense and really get it going with this existing site or start a brand new one. Heck, if I can write (myself - not outsource) over 100 pages, I know I can write 30-60 and get the Adsense ball rolling.

      Let me know,

    Hey guys I'm a newbie at IM and wanted to learn more so I've read here and there in the forums and have come across a few IM packages over here in this forums

    1) 100kblueprint
    2) Bringthefresh
    3) War Forums

    And I have url pinger software & backlinking bot which I'm not really sure what they are used for..

    and I've heard about magic submitter, sick submitter, market samurai, these are some stuff I've never used..

    Right now there's a person who's guiding me bit by by ever since I bought my first autoblog at flippa, she guided me on how to implement the FB app system, ping.fm to publish an article into many different blogging directories when one click, other than that I'll post articles on its specfic forums.

    Can anyone recomend me what I should buy? to further improve my IM skills , Currently I'm interested in autoblogging earning through ad sense but I'm starting to go into affliate marketing/amazons on WP sites and hopefully be able to create other projects in the future but right now. I'm learning a lot of stuff randomly and hope someone can guide me.

    My goal's are to be able to make 500 a month by june this year. Really passionate and determined but don't really know who's the real deal, I have all the nessary knowledge on HTML/PHP related stuff in building a website that I learnt in my high school days, though doing this as a hobby is great, they say the earlier you start, the more experience you will gain in time to come.

      Bought the course because of a few reviews here ... getting toe into adsense - have avoided it like plague for 2 years due to horror stories here and elsewhere ...

      "My account just got banned and I had $3500 in earnings coming or blah blah blah ..."

      Thought I would see some real evidence in this $100k blueprint about "How To Keep Your Adsense Account" ... Do i have to join hte forum for $17 to get the WHOLE story on that one?

      Ive ssen many a banned Adsense earners sites with 10-25 or even more articles and posts on it ... banned or de indexed ... can we get some real world info on a site you'd consider "quality content" - "value added to the searcher"

      How about a make believe niche with some eza or PLR pak articles layed out like you'd recommend and as THICK in content as you'd recommend to NOT get labeled MFA and shut D ... as an example for buyers of the system. There has to be more to keeping an adsense account out of trouble than what was posted in the book and theres not much of that discussion in the videos ...

      I know how to pick niches - i know how to rank stuff - I know how to do on and off page seo ... what Im looking for is the exact type of content adsense reviewers deem acceptable and just HOW MUCH OF IT they need to see to feel warm and cozy and not get tossed into the MFA pit of death, or de-indexed. that Zone theme and bluesense are screamin MFA x 1 billion on the net - seriously thats not a MFA footprint?

      100 articles / pieces of content isnt scary for a site designed to make $300 a day ... Hell we'll buy it all - write it all - spin it all - whatever x 200 if needed and put it on auto post ever 1-2-3 days and different times on a random schedule

      [ theres a great plugin in by the way for some coder - i think it already exists ... ]

    Thanks for purchasing the course; I appreciate your remarks re: account banning. In fact, I'm going to write up a somewhat more in-depth section for the next update, and will post it in the forum as well.

    I say 'somewhat' for the same reason that section is as it is: Google rarely provides detailed explanations of why they ban an account - Adsense, Adwords, etc.

    That section is based on two perspectives. First, I collected all the info I could from people who had their accounts banned. Second, I went through everything I could find published either by Google, or on their Adsense blogs.

    What I came away with was pretty much what I started with. While there are almost certainly some sophisticated filters that are intended to ferret out 'unworthy' sites, for the most part it simply boils down to 'following the rules'.

    Of course, that leaves a lot of room for broad interpretation, and what I get from your post is, it would be great to have a better sense of what could be interpreted as 'unworthy'. I would have liked to be able to draw some stronger conclusions from the data, but unfortunately there were many contradictions - sites that seemed to be entirely within bounds that were banned. One problem is that when an account gets banned, it could be not only for an individual site out of many 'good' ones, but can also be simply someone Google 'connects' to a banned account.

    That said, having looked long & hard at this, my feeling is that having some depth in terms of number of pages, and length in terms of article/post/page content are the surest ways to stay 'safe' - providing of course that the basic 'rules' are adhered to.

    What I do to 'test' is consider, what impression would a manual reviewer come away with?

    If I had to distill it into a formula, I would say:

    Minimum of 5 pages of 500+ word original, related content;
    Minimum of 5 pages of additional content;
    Appropriate policy adherence i.e. privacy policy, contact info, etc.
    Avoid 'pitch' or 'promise' niches i.e. miracle products, miracle cures, instant success methods/products;
    Avoid 'content stuffing' meaning multiple pages of too-similar content;
    Avoid 'keyword stuffing' meaning obvious over-optimization of keywords;

    Thanks for that post!

        Please accept my apologies, it's entirely possible one fell through the cracks.

        However, the forum was opened about 5 weeks after launch. There is now an option on the purchase page, and we tried to notify all prior customers.

        If you'll PM me, I'll get you set up with a gratis forum account.

        FYI: The forum now has almost 500 active members; 3500 posts in more than 500 topic threads; at least 3 active 'follow-me' progress threads; success stories; Q&A covering every imaginable aspect of the Blueprint including keyword research, site structure, backlinks & ranking; helpful tools; free software & content; and expert site reviews.

    I'm trying to go with my gut feelings on purchasing this. I feel a bit conflicted.

    One of my concerns is how many hours a week does this require? and is the forum an "upsell" - that I will need to be successful with "the blueprint?"

      Hi internetsweetie,

      First let me say there are no upsells, downsells, sidesells, pop-ups, pop-downs, or anything else of the sort. The product is a single purchase, and comes complete with the ebook, 10 how-to videos, themes, and some valuable extras. You don't need to spend another penny, other than hosting & domain name, in order to follow the entire Blueprint.

      As a separate product, we have a members-only paid forum ($17/mo), for which you can get a 7-day trial with purchase of the course. The forum is a terrific resource where you can ask questions, interact with others doing the same thing, plus there's a ton of extra resources, etc. However, you do not need the forum to follow the Blueprint at all.

      As for the time, it's largely up to you. This is NOT a 'get rich quick' scheme though, and you must be willing to put in some time and effort if you want to get results. How much time & effort is up to you; the more you apply yourself, the more - and faster - you will see results.

      That said, you can implement the entire Blueprint with just an hour or two per day, providing you aren't entirely new to Wordpress, or using things like a keyword tool, etc. Once the initial work to create your site is done, we provide an "Action Plan" to follow in order to get your pages to Page 1 rankings. For that, you can again expect an hour or so per day in linkbuilding, plus whatever it would take you to either write or outsource a couple of posts & articles per week.

      You won't get to $100k on an hour per day. However you can expect to create a site that earns $25/day. And once you have your first Blueprint site, it requires very little ongoing maintenance, at which point you can build your next one.

      If your goal was to reach a 6-figure income, you should expect to put in anywhere from 10-25 hours per week.

      Hope that helps~

          Hi Jamie,

          The target for a Blueprint site is appx. $25/day. While you could of course have 6 such sites totaling appx. $5000/mo., and that wouldn't be pushing it with a 30 hr/wk. effort, it's simpler than that.

          The Blueprint advocates keeping half your sites, and selling half. In fact, there's an entire chapter on flipping, including a sample listing you can use.

          These type of Adsense sites are easily the most desirable on Flippa, and routinely get 10-15 times monthly earnings or better. In fact, we sell these regularly, and have seen up to 22 times monthly earnings for sites with this type of consistent earnings and a little age.

          A $25/day site nets $750/mo. That's an easy flip for $7500-$10,000.

          If you were to create just 1 site per week - not terribly difficult - once they reached their target of $25/day (realistically from 6-12 weeks), you could easily exceed your $5000/mo. goal, and I have to say if you were to really apply yourself @ 30 hrs/week, you could realistically expect far better results.

          One thing to keep in mind is the 'lag time'. From the first site - which also always takes longer - each site has to go through it's rank-building, so there would be a 'stagger' of 1-3 months before your revenues caught up and were consistent.

          Here's what it comes down to. The Blueprint provides a step-by-step plan for duplicating a successful Adsense business. To the degree you follow it, you will get predictable results. The level of time & commitment you apply will determine how much, and how quickly you earn.

          Hope that helps~

              As the sales page says, yes, you can. We do it. And the Blueprint shows you exactly how we do it, and how to exactly duplicate everything we do. Are you likely to get that "out of the gate"? No, nor do we claim you will.

              If you do everything exactly right, you can - we do, and show multiple examples. Generally, it takes some time for most people to digest, understand, and implement everything 'perfectly'. As such we initially work towards a target that is much more accessible for most people.

              This is not a 'push-button' solution. It takes time to understand and master, even with step-by-step directions. It took us over a year to perfect our particular methods and procedures. We save you the time of having to try and figure it out on your own. But you won't pick up a 110 page book, digest it, and perfectly execute instantly.

        As a separate product, we have a members-only paid forum ($17/mo), for which you can get a 7-day trial with purchase of the course. The forum is a terrific resource where you can ask questions, interact with others doing the same thing, plus there's a ton of extra resources, etc. However, you do not need the forum to follow the Blueprint at all.

        As for the time, it's largely up to you. This is NOT a 'get rich quick' scheme though, and you must be willing to put in some time and effort if you want to get results. How much time & effort is up to you; the more you apply yourself, the more - and faster - you will see results.

        That said, you can implement the entire Blueprint with just an hour or two per day, providing you aren't entirely new to Wordpress, or using things like a keyword tool, etc. Once the initial work to create your site is done, we provide an "Action Plan" to follow in order to get your pages to Page 1 rankings. For that, you can again expect an hour or so per day in linkbuilding, plus whatever it would take you to either write or outsource a couple of posts & articles per week.

        You won't get to $100k on an hour per day. However you can expect to create a site that earns $25/day. And once you have your first Blueprint site, it requires very little ongoing maintenance, at which point you can build your next one.

        If your goal was to reach a 6-figure income, you should expect to put in anywhere from 10-25 hours per week.

        Hope that helps~

          Hi Kleo,

          We focus on Wordpress for various reasons, however everything would apply equally well to Xsitepro, providing you're reasonably competent with it. I'm an Xsitepro user, and many of the sites were originally developed with it.

      I have just completed reading the book.

      To be honest, I think the author still thinks it is 2005.

      I am also surprised by people saying that it is a well written course. After reading it, I doubt if the author has really ever created a successful website within the past 3 years using his methods.

      The impression I have is that he has read on quite a few Adsense courses and put what he has learnt together in an ebook.

      His approach WILL NOT get you rankings for competitive terms. He forgets to mention so many important elemenst like themes, LSI etc.

      I think many people who have given rave reviews for the ebook have probably never built a website before and have probably never read an SEO or Adsense course before this one.

      I mam shocked and disappointed at how easily impressed WF reviewers have become. I guess it is no surprise why the only success story I see in their forum is from the SAME GUY who has been posting his successes on this Warriors forum. I did not see anybody else bragging about any success using the Adsense 100K blueprint. Not surprising at all after reading their blueprint.

        Not true. I have found one of his websites sold on flippa for $30K in the late 2009. And then after 6 months some other guy have sold $40K adsense website in the same niche.

        While i may not agree with the SEO methods and template that they advocate to use, overall i like the product.

          Was it an Adsense Website? How old was the site? How many has he created since or before succesfully? How do you know it truly is his site? If so, did they survive the last Google update?

          The thing is, somebody may have gotten lucky ONCE. Then they start calling that one time event a system. Then they start selling that system to gullibles and newbies who just can never attain that one time lucky event.

          If the dude in 2011 really still builds $25/day sites the way he teaches, then I will eat my hat.

        Check your facts, you have no idea what you're talking about.

        My "approach" works exactly as advertised, gets you rankings, and does so repeatedly. I have done this over and over and over. As have plenty of people doing the same thing.

        "Never built a website?" I don't know what your problem or agenda is, but everything I have done, written, or claimed is easily verifiable, and if you even bothered to look, you'd see success after success shown in the sales video, actual Flippa auctions, live Escrow.com account login, with real, live examples - URL's and all - published in the book.

        As in Adsense sites sold for $32,000, $21,000, $50,000, $16,000, etc., etc. and Adsense sites getting $100-$400/day, verifiable.

        "Gotten lucky"? I don't even know how to respond to that. Yes, I've gotten lucky. Every month for years running.

        "Was it an Adsense Website? How old was the site? How many has he created since or before succesfully? How do you know it truly is his site? If so, did they survive the last Google update?"

        Are you suggesting I'm lying? I thought you read the book? Or did you buy it and refund it a day later? One thing I can say with certainty is that you're criticizing something you haven't done - if you actually tried it, you'd have had the same success that I have.

        You're telling me I'm stuck in 2005 by citing LSI? I'll just leave it at that...

      Hi mygold,

      "Adsense $100k Blueprint" is a course. It consists of a 110+ page PDF, 10 'how-to' videos, two custom Wordpress themes, some plugins, an Action Tracking Sheet', and another ebook, "The Ultimate IM Toolchest" which is a compendium of hundreds of free IM resources.

      The course goes over our methods & strategies for creating a 6-figure Adsense business, including a step-by-step guide to copy our business.

      The course is $47.

      Separately, there is a members-only paid forum ($17/month). The forum is not necessary to build your Adsense business - everything necessary is included with the $47 product. The forum provides a place where you can get direct support, ask questions, interact with others doing the same thing - including at least 4 active 'follow me' threads - plus a host of extra resources, freebies & downloads, etc. We currently have over 500 members and thousands of posts. You get a 7-day trial for the forum when you buy the product.

    Will this program teach me how to make money only through adsense? cause I used to have a autoblog that was making 10us-15usd a day that I bought from flippa for 647usd and wasted money cuase its now its been making 0.00 a day, for some reason and it uses the FB method of getting its traffic.

    I'll send you a pm, could you do a review on that site? would really like to be convinced that adsense really work and how to achieve it cause I dont see why people want to click on ad's.. I just got interested in IM start of this year but don't really know if it will work for me. Your course might just be the one that I've been looking for.

      I know of a few people who have lost their adsense accounts due to autoblogs. If I were you, I would consider myself lucky that it is just that your earnings dropped.

      Get some genuine content and create a real website.

    Thank you for the very detailed reply. I really appreciate that and it does help clarify some aspects of the information your course provides. For some reason I've never really got into blogs as a serious medium.

    I use them but honestly I employ them more for backlinks and entry ways to my main sites. You might cause me to change my mind and re-evaluate them based on your teachings.

      Hi Tim- one of the things that was very, if not the most valuable for me (I say this only because I was familiar with some of the core concepts already) was the visual layouts and structure provided in their examples.

      The ads are incorporated in a way that while they are not using any illegal techniques such as hiding the 'ads by google' text, they blend well into the navigation and are viewed as part of the content rather than these unnatural blocks of text that most of our eyes have been trained to ignore on sites.

      I think you could incorporate that concept on static pages for sure. one of the main benefits to wordpress in this specific case would be the fact that they give you a few wordpres templates to use.

      Also, the way to select keywords for these specific type of sites and making sure the topic itself will actually have relevant adsense ads for it (i incorrectly assumed most things would).

      I had a bunch of articles written on a topic a long time ago that I never did anything with or knew what to do, but they make sense for this blueprint so I'm giving it a shot (though the keyword is not ideal for the #s, the fact that I already have all this content written and an EMD domain is a good start.)

      Also a question for Mike- I may have missed this in the guide, but using your wp themes where I simply enter my adsense ID, how do we take advantage of the tracking features in adsense?

      Thanks

      The simplest answer is usually the correct one.

      That's bizarre...

      Don't know what I might have said to have them pulled. I'll try a very generic replies, hopefully it'll stick.

      Regarding using static HTML versus Wordpress:

      The tactics in the course would be the same on Wordpress or straight HTML. The main reason we use Wordpress is that it's easier to insure repeatability and consistency. There are some people in the forum who are using Xsitepro.

      Regarding Adsense tracking:

      Tracking Adsense is done from within Adsense. We include a video on how to set up "URL Channels" to track your sites.

    This may have been said, but can this work with AMAZON associate as well? Also, why flip the site if it's bringing in good money? I don't get it. If it's making you $10k a year, keep it, no? Why cash out and let the buyer have the long term $? I don't get it. If i had 10 sites making $10k each annually, i'd be golden.

      I can't speak for Owen, but I can tell you that we recommend keeping half the sites and selling half. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is the "bird in hand" notion.

      While there is no reason to think a site won't continue performing, there are a whole host of things that could occur. That said, it's worth noting that the reasons these sites routinely get such a high multiple is that they're considered a relatively safe and hands-free investment.

      As for Amazon, everything in the Blueprint works equally well for affiliate marketing.

      Hey goldmedal,

      Good question. Simply put, I don't like turning down good deals when they come along.

      I have other projects and goals on the go which means realistically this site probably would have ended up neglected on my back burner and never seen it's full potential.

      Instead, I've sold the website to a great guy who's motivated to carry on the torch, allowing me to focus on other projects...he's happy, I'm happy, it's a win win.

      Cheers!

      Nothing black hat; in fact we advocate avoiding anything dicey at all. You certainly don't need to 'cheat' to make a lot of money with Adsense - in fact, doing it 'right' is the only way to insure long-term success.

      This is meant for building a serious, long-term business, not a "quick & easy" dollar grab, and as you point out, this entails some 'real work', patience, and avoiding the 'get rich quick' mindset.

      It doesn't seem to matter how good a product is you'll always have some naysayers. I'm new to all this and for myself who has been struggling to get something positive going online for far too long, this is a game changer. I especially like the fact that it deals with WP Blogs and not static sites. I tried my hand a static site building and almost ended up hanging myself from the frustration.

      This a step by step plan that even the newest of newbies can follow and with a little effort make work. If I had more than two thumbs I would give it ALL THUMBS UP! There is nothing more to buy! Everything you need to get started is there except for Domain-name and Hosting. For the price they give you the key's to the kingdom.

    Hi guys

    I purchased this program a couple weeks ago and read it through once at that time.

    I had attempted this IM thing acouple times in the past with just mild success.

    I felt like i was missing some steps or not quite "getting it".

    Well since this time I have read the manual again like 5 times- the last time i took notes in a note book in an attempt for it to sink in.

    Finally, a light bulb has gone on in my head and I "get it".

    This program is a comprehensive / exhaustive method for making some serious money with adsense.

    I am now ready to pursue my dreams for online marketing and feel a great deal of confidence now that the process has truly been cemented in my mind. I think i finally understand how the process works and the right way to do this.

    For this I am thankful and now I have a concrete plan to follow and yes it will require a lot of work but I am now ready to tackle this- and the nice thing is I now know that my hard work will not be hit or miss- it will hit and stick this time.

    Now I head to work putting this into action. I will report my progress.

    Thanks for the great program

    Ok - after all the positive feedback I couldn't resist anymore and jumped in, too. The only problem is that I can't download everything within the next 3 hours. So I just opened a support ticket and hope that it's answered too.

    I'm very interested in this program - and the Adsense model in general. It seems that with ANY site, whether it's an Adsense site or an affiliate site, you should still do the basic SEO to get it to rank high, but in the affiliate case it seems you have to "work harder" to get a sale as opposed to someone just clicking on a link. That has always appealed to me as an easier sale, and although I get less money per action, I might be able to earn as much or more than an affiliate site.

    Another thing that is VERY appealing is the fact that when flipping a site, people seem to be less inclined to buy an established affiliate site, but will snap up Adsense sites left and right. And if I can get an Adsense site to $25/day - $750/mo - then I could probably flip that for $10-15K and possibly more. For me and I'm sure a lot of people, I will take the cash now on some sites as a much needed cash flow injection and then continue to build more sites.

    I think the naysayers in this thread have their own agenda, and I think I've heard enough good things to say that it would be worth buying this product. But I heard Fatcat Blueprint mentioned and checked out the site and it also looks pretty good. In a way, maybe too good. I hate outrageous income claims. But it sells.

    Does anyone have both programs, and if so which one would you suggest?

      Hi Razz,

      I wholeheartedly recommend A100k!

      I've heard good things about Fatcat Blueprint, and have been meaning to pick up a copy. I too would be interested to hear from anyone who has both.

      I completely agree with your feelings about 'working harder' for affiliate sales, not to mention swallowing returns, etc. That said, much of the course focuses on keyword research and ranking, and applies equally well to any business model that works on search traffic.

      As for flipping, you are absolutely right. Adsense sites get snatched up almost immediately, and at fantastic multiples - providing of course they're reasonably decent sites otherwise and can show some revenues.

      Within the course, the strategy we advocate is to keep half your sites and flip half; this gives you the 'best of all worlds' with ongoing revenue, plus those really nice 'bird in hand' lump sum 'cash-outs'. In fact, we've included a full auction listing for you to copy & use, essentially the listing I've created for my sites and used very successfully many, many times.

        Sounds like another Google alogrithm jarring is on its way; have you or are you ready to deal with its implications? Changes are to be to sites that are made and primarily created to generate Adsense revenue.

        http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/...-sites-in.html

        How are you/we going to deal with these issues and is this still viable without producing a larger type authority site rather than 10 or 25 page sites-which is the basic inference made?

        "This update is designed to reduce rankings for
        low-quality sites--sites which are low-value add
        for users, copy content from other websites or
        sites that are just not very useful. At the same
        time, it will provide better rankings for
        high-quality sites--sites with original content
        and information such as research, in-depth
        reports, thoughtful analysis and so on."

        Are we not producing similar "Content Farms"?

        How much do you guess it will effect us?

        Yes I know about the original content and all that but that may not be the end of it and there very well may be problems ranking the way it used to be done, as in present day.

        Thoughts?

        Thanks for your time!

          Great questions - as you might imagine, this is something we spend a lot of time thinking about and considering.

          Most important is understanding the specific changes Google has, and continues to make. Fortunately, they're pretty 'open' about what they're doing, and there is a lot of good information available, directly from Google, and from other expert sources.

          Generally speaking, the changes are mostly extensions of what Google has been doing with many of the recent updates - trying to define 'lowest common denominators' in order to target "low value" websites. These are the usual suspects: copied, scraped, or otherwise unoriginal content, 'thin' sites with little content, etc.

          Additionally, those 'lowest common denominators' for rank manipulation such as paid links, which have led to some of those recent high-profile cases such as JC Penney.

          Fortunately, from a macro perspective, it all amounts to this: reasonably 'good' sites - those with decent original content, that follow the rules, and have reasonable link diversity - will always be ok. What is the difference between a 'good' site developed with the intention of generating revenue, and a 'good' site developed out of interest, passion, etc.?

          Early on, I made the decision with A100k to focus on long-term, sustainable results. As such, everything taught and advocated within the course promotes building 'good' sites.

          We have a couple dozen test sites that we use not only to test and validate what we put in the course, but to try and understand the particulars of these changes beyond what is published. So far, everything bears out our initial assumptions - that the A100k course, if followed, will result in 'good' sites that will do well over the long-term.

          One other aspect is our forum. With almost 600 active members, we're able to get a really good and wide perspective, both on what is working, and when someone runs into problems, what are the particulars that created the problem.

            Excellent, thanks!

            Wanted to crack that Google nut as I knew it was going to come up here, and for plans like this, eventually.

            I am contemplating your course and have been on this thread for a long time now but want to make sure it is the best of the shiny objects circling about.

            The income results are not quite as advertised per day but if one could get to about $700 month, within maybe about 4-5 months?? just from Adsense than that would be an excellent, almost auto-pilot income after the hard work is put in.

            I am/was looking at promoting CPA offers without a major website and YouTube Marketing etc but this may be easier to just focus on one thing, one plan, get it all going well with unique, quality content-monetize it somehow and then move onto another similar well paying keyword project every 2-3 months or so. Sound logical or are other approaches better than this longer run version?

            I think with a site that forwards actual solutions to people's needs and with some good Adsense ads and maybe an affilate product or two lingering to the side, it will/should work well long term and produce good revenue and provide viable info/answers to the patron and for Google.

            Thanks again, I also suspected that you would make sure the forum was actively assessing these changes as well.

            Any other updates from the gang would be appreciated! PM me with some of your stories about this plan if able, appreciated!

    Hi guys- just wanted to give an update on my progress-

    Actually, I am thinking of starting a thread to document my progress, and keep on track....any maybe others can join in?

    Anyway today i sat down and made my first adsense site with this method- I have been working for about the last 10 hours or so with a couple breaks in between.

    I did my keyword research, got a domain and set up the main pages of my site. I think this process will now become quicker now that i have actually done it.

    I am actually pretty proud of what I have been able to create. Kind of tired now so I think that will be all for today- hopefully my site will be indexed soon.

    I will then continue on to the next part of the project, and begin building some backlinks over the next week as per the plan.

    Over and out

    Hi Chris,

    My husband was unexpectedly - and very abruptly - layed off a few weeks ago. Fortunately I hadn't been sitting on my hands

    Mike (the author of the course) helped me sell the first site I had built. It averaged around $25 per day, and I was able to get $9000 for it on a -very- quick sale. Since then I've stepped up my efforts as I don't know how long my husband will be out of work, and we really need the income.

    Between all my sites, I clear about $90-$100 per day, but some of those are 'other' sites that I'd had for a long time. I'm earning roughly $50 per day from 3 Blueprint sites, but one of them is pretty new. I have 3 more that I've begun since the beginning of February, and are just now finished, launched, and indexed.

    One of the things I've learned between the ebook and the forum is to do better keyword research. I now 'get' the whole ranking concept, so I believe it's just a matter of choosing good keyword phrase groups to build my sites around.

    With my husband out of work, I'm going to be putting in more of a full-time effort (while he gets to play "Mr. Mom" lol!). If I hadn't had that site I was able to sell, we would have been in dire financial straights by now. Though I'm very anxious about the future - my husband works in a field that it won't be easy to for him to get a new job at the salary he was making before - I don't feel hopeless, and have some confidence that I can continue to boost my overall income.

      How long would it normally take to put up these sites - you have completed 3 basic sites in February? How many hours of dedicated work did that take to pull off?

      How long does it generally take to make it to say $15/day, assuming the keywords and market would produce that.

      Is there a way to properly outsource most of this, after doing one or two sites to know the plan?

      Thanks for your time!

      Kim what do u use personally for kw/niche research...seeing as you are successful with this. How many pages do you make your site? Or at least - how many new articles do you throw on? Do u do a lot of backlinking? edu/gov, social networking, blog forums......

        I'm quite interested in the $100K ARB.

        Can anyone tell me, bar the initial cost of the course, what other expenses will I have?

        I've seen a recommended theme referred to. What does it cost? Is it's use optional?

        Site promotion - is paid for backlinking considered essential to the blueprint?

        I'd just like some indication of what it might cost to get a few sites up and running?

          Hi Kyle,

          The course is $47, complete. There are no upsells, downsells, cross-sells, OTO's, pop-ups, pop-downs, pop-unders, or exit-pops.

          Included is the main ebook (a 115 page PDF), 2 custom themes, 10 'how-to' tutorial videos, a folder of plugins, an "Action Tracking" sheet, plus an 'extra' bonus, "The Ultimate IM Toolchest", my $37 ebook with links to hundreds of free IM resources.

          Separately, we have a members-only forum. The forum is $17/mo, however you can get a 7-day trial with purchase of the main product. While the forum has become a terrific and very active resource, it isn't at all necessary in order to follow the Blueprint.

          Beyond the product itself, you should expect to spend $7-$10 for a domain name, and hosting if you don't already have it.

          There are no other costs or expenses.

          Paid backlinking is definitely not considered essential. The "Action Plan" we provide - and in fact every function including keyword research - is layed out using all free tools. We do have a 'Resources' section that talks about additional paid and free tools & resources, however none of them are required. In many cases, we actually suggest 'free' over 'paid' methods.

          That said, someone could buy tools, pay for backlinking, outsource content, etc. But none of that is necessary. We advocate doing everything yourself initially anyway, as you'll have a far better understanding of how it all works and fits together, and a much stronger foundation should you want to scale up and/or outsource.

          The course was created very intentionally so that someone could pick it up and not need to buy anything further beyond domains in order to have substantial success.

            Yes, I know I am a nobody here and I haven't contributed to the forum as I should be but I need to jump in here. I'll say this; A100k was absolutely eye-opening for me.

            I purchased it last night and sat up to 2:30 am reading the whole ebook and highlighting key points.

            Over the years I've bought course after course hoping for overnight or overweek riches. Finally, I have wizened up to scams and B.S. from so called IMers. I am not stupid when it comes to SEO and other areas as I have many sites ranked very well, but I will say that I have been stupid in generating myself some real money.

            I have still yet to pay my electric and gas bills with IM (obviously I'm doing something wrong) but I know this will someday soon change. I have found great information here at WF and this product definitely gets two thumbs up from me.

            Regards and thank you ethical warriors. May the force be us all.

            Mike.

            Separately, we have a members-only forum. The forum is $17/mo, however you can get a 7-day trial with purchase of the main product. While the forum has become a terrific and very active resource, it isn't at all necessary in order to follow the Blueprint.

            Beyond the product itself, you should expect to spend $7-$10 for a domain name, and hosting if you don't already have it.

            There are no other costs or expenses.

            Paid backlinking is definitely not considered essential. The "Action Plan" we provide - and in fact every function including keyword research - is layed out using all free tools. We do have a 'Resources' section that talks about additional paid and free tools & resources, however none of them are required. In many cases, we actually suggest 'free' over 'paid' methods.

            That said, someone could buy tools, pay for backlinking, outsource content, etc. But none of that is necessary. We advocate doing everything yourself initially anyway, as you'll have a far better understanding of how it all works and fits together, and a much stronger foundation should you want to scale up and/or outsource.

            The course was created very intentionally so that someone could pick it up and not need to buy anything further beyond domains in order to have substantial success.

      Kim, that is awesome! I'm so happy for you! I'm sure that you were a bit scared, but what a way to make a comeback and kick fear in the teeth!

      And the fact that Mike helped you seals the deal for me. That speaks volumes and I'll be purchasing soon. Way to go, Mike!

      Between all my sites, I clear about $90-$100 per day, but some of those are 'other' sites that I'd had for a long time. I'm earning roughly $50 per day from 3 Blueprint sites, but one of them is pretty new. I have 3 more that I've begun since the beginning of February, and are just now finished, launched, and indexed.
      That's really cool and speaks well of the course to me.

      With my husband out of work, I'm going to be putting in more of a full-time effort (while he gets to play "Mr. Mom" lol!). If I hadn't had that site I was able to sell, we would have been in dire financial straights by now. Though I'm very anxious about the future - my husband works in a field that it won't be easy to for him to get a new job at the salary he was making before - I don't feel hopeless, and have some confidence that I can continue to boost my overall income.

      Kim

        Hi Michael,
        I asked this over at the BTF forum but you are probably busy with your own forum:

        "The pdf says to look for 2400 exact searches a month. Yet the screen shot of Micro Niche Finder (pg 33) shows a broad search and some of the (apparently) chosen keywords to be decidedly less in volume of searches. Clarification? As well, MNF shows Phlebotomy Certification (mentioned in the blueprint) as being very hard (red-6280!) to rank for."

        Buddy
        PS Also were you saying that each of your money keywords should be 2400/month? As I mentioned above it looked like some that you were going to use had search volumes in the hundreds.

                  That's the way I feel vemma bear - I think I finally understand how to make myt pages rank - for my keywords - and why I had trouble in the past. I really had come to the conclusion that there was no rhyme or reason to Google's ranking. Everything I'd read anywhere else just didn't seem to pan out. Now it makes sense.

                  On the webinar last week, they said they were releasing a course about traffic. Does anyone know if it's available yet, and if so where I can find it? Also, is it a different course or the same one, and will it be free or discounted for those of us that bought the Adsense course?

            There is a lot of info there.

            It really is a "blueprint!" - A very do-able, step by step process - which I'm looking forward to implementing within the next few days.

      Hi jimotman,

      Your initial site will launch with 5-10 pages of content. This consists of the homepage, plus another 'page' for each keyword phrase that is targeted.

      Once the site is up & indexed, the 'rank building' begins. For the plan we outline, you can expect to add at least 2 new posts per week. Once you have your Page 1 rankings, then you can add few new posts.

      Also, as part of your 'rank building', you will be adding content to Web 2.0 sites and article directories however this can be spun content.

      In all cases the content can be outsourced if you so choose.

      No. The course is a business model for building and ranking sites targeting 'secondary' search phrases within bigger niches; keywords with moderate volume and moderate competition.

      We do not advocate targeting super-high competition keywords as part of this business model.

      Let me help you decide: buy this one.

      Actually, while I haven't picked it up yet, I've heard good things about FCB and plan to pick it up to see how it compares. A100k is by no means the 'only game in town' as far as good Adsense business models go.

      They're both Clickbank products, so an easy way to decide is buy both, and refund whichever doesn't fit your goals. Either way, my advice would be to stick with one strategy.

      I know you answer something like this above, but I'm kinda curious as to how you would get traffic here.
      As you might imagine, this is something we've been looking at very intensely.

      First let me say that we have a number of 'test sites' - over 20 - that we use to test things like Google changes, the Blueprint plans, etc. In addition, we have dozens of our own Blueprint sites, plus the benefit of the members forum with hundreds of people building Blueprint sites. To date, we have not seen any adverse affect on any sites that have been built & promoted that followed the Blueprint diligently.

      What we're coming to realize is the increased importance of 'link diversity' - something we specify in the Blueprint. Even before the 'Farmer' update, we advocated multiple sources for backlinks including Web 2.0 sites, article marketing, Social Bookmarking sites, and others - in fact, this is part of the 'Action Plan' we provide.

      Some of the key take-away's that I've been able to discern from this update are in many respects, just extensions of where things have been going for some time:

      Build sites around themes, not individual keywords
      Original, quality content on your main sites
      Avoid creating 'thin' sites - either too little content, low-grade content, non-original content
      Strive for link diversity
      Maintain 'link velocity' in your link building

      If you follow these guidelines, you are essentially building quality authority sites, and building your ranking through ongoing, diverse backlinks.

      One big takeaway is the importance of 'link relevance' - having anchor text links that jive with the content (as opposed to having unrelated resource box links in your articles for instance).

      By syndicating your content through blog networks and services like Unique Article Wizard, you can insure content- and link-relevance. Ditto for using Web 2.0 sites.

      I'm in the process of writing an in-depth analysis and 'response' addressing the update which will be posted in the forum and emailed to all customers next week.

      The bottom line: doing things "right" and avoiding 'auto-magic-instant-anything' is more important than ever, and that is the foundation of the Blueprint.

        Thats not true at all. I've done heavy testing into this and can verify with absolute confidence that link relevance is NOT a big factor. It probably has *some* small effect, but it is simply not that important. As part of my testing, I ranked a huge medical keyword into the first page in 2 months using links EXCLUSIVELY from 2.0s that contain articles on Internet Marketing ONLY.

          Thanks for posting that, but you may have mis-understood me. What I mentioned above is in relation to the recent updates, particularly the new 'Farmer' update.

          What's significant about Link Relevance is that it didn't used to be a big factor, but will be a bigger factor going forward.

            Are content publishers/marketers seriously supposed to wait for 6 months to get an Adsense account if we have none already and are using a new domain as well?

            Really!?

            That seems a ridiculous amount of time to wait after going through the process of building a site and then forced to wait about 6 months to get into Google Adsense and start making money.

            Using Blogger and Hubpages for this is nonsense as well; we need a real site to make coin with, not a Blogger site etc.

            Seriously disappointed if true....

              I don't know how you could have meaningful testing results for something like that in a week.

              There are plenty of indicators, including remarks by Cutts and Singhal suggesting it IS a significant factor.

                By that logic, my sites that have been built on solely non relevant backlinks would've dropped which they haven't. The same could be said about your "testing" that indicates relevant backlinks are important going forward. I don't believe you have done any significant testing in that area yet like you claim. Also, I LOL@Cutts. That guy is a good source of information about on page SEO, but his offpage "advice" is total BS. When I stopped listening to his "advice" I started ranking faster and more consistently.

    For anyone that is on the fence about buying this, I give it a 5 star rating (5/5) without hesitation.

    Everything is laid out for you in step by step format. There were a few things that I wasn't totally clear on, but after watching the videos I was good to go. The thing that impressed me most about this is that the philosophy behind what they are doing and how they do it I'm 100% on board with. You'll find other Adsense products promoting micro-niche sites, but do you really have the time and energy to make hundreds, maybe 1000+ of them in order to get to the revenue level that you want? I know I don't. Sure it takes some work to uncover the keyword phrases that have good/moderate search volume but with a competition level that is beatable. But when you find them - and you WILL if you just keep looking! - then this business model is GOLD!

    Throw in their action plan to make sure that your site builds up consistently over time and backlinks aren't built too quickly and this almost guarantees a first page ranking if you did everything else right.

    I've started to become an Adsense Niche Hunter now. I already have 5 sets of keywords that I will eventually build sites around. For now I'm focusing on my best one, then in the next week or two working on my second one. Once I'm in maintenance mode on those I'll be working on the others. I'm sure by then though I'll have 5 or 10 more niches ready to go. I can really see that eventually the bulk of my work will be finding the niche/keywords that fit the model, then getting the domain/site set up and the theme/plugins loaded. I can set up a site in 15 minutes. Then I'll outsource the content creation and the SEO work based on their action plan and start working on the next ones. By working this way, I have no doubt that this can be a $10-20K per month business sometime this year.

      or

      Adsense Masters Course - Adsense Masters Course By XFactor

      Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
      I've got both and both are very good.
      They are quite different in approach. xfactor's talks about creating far fewer Authority sites whereas 100K blueprint talks about setting up many sites based around sets of keywords.

      At the end of the day both will make you money if you follow all of the advice and take action. And is said many times - there is no silver bullet. You need to work, work, work for success, whichever route you take!!!

    Hi there

    I'm still on the fence for this one. I was wondering if those who have implemented could let us know if they are having significant progress with monetising. Also, please shed any light on the Google algo change and any implication as a result.

    I'm sure this thread got a 5 stars rating for a reason. I just need a little bit more encouragement to sign up.

    Cheers, MS

      Hi Matt,

      If you read through this thread, you'll find a number of people reporting significant success. On the private members forum, there are also a number of people reporting success, various success stories, and a number of ongoing 'follow me' diary threads.

      Almost everyone who follows the Blueprint diligently sees the same results. A lot of thought and effort was put into making sure it's a repeatable process. Realizing that this isn't a 'Magic Bullet' get-rich-quick scheme, and requires a commitment of time and effort, anyone who puts in that time & effort will have success.

      As for the 'Farmer' update, I can tell you that none of our own Blueprint sites - over 20 - have seen a drop, plus we have the benefit of hearing from hundreds of forum members as to what they're seeing. Everything in the course jives perfectly with the update.

      I posted a sticky in the A100k forum discussing the update; some of it is summarized in a Warrior post, with a link to a longer post: http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...er-update.html

      Lastly, A100k is a Clickbank product, with a 60-day no-questions-asked guarantee, and we approve any refund requests right away.

      Michael

      PS - If you're still on the fence, I'd be happy to set you up with a temporary forum account where you could poke around, see what others have to say, ask questions, etc. If you'd like to take me up on that, just shoot me a PM.

          Thanks.
          Sorry M.A.D., somehow missed that one.

          Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away.... used to be you had your Adsense application reviewed - and usually approved - in days, weeks at most.

          I think around the beginning of 2010, Google changed what was seemingly 'blanket' approval of most applications, making it more 'difficult' to get. While I certainly understand their rationale, but that's neither here nor there.

          Through the experience of a zillion people applying, it's become evident that when using your own site to apply, the older it is, the more likely you are to be approved.

          Keep in mind, getting approved for Adsense is entirely up to Google, and they'll do it however they choose to do it. Whether it's efficient, smart, of just a great big PIA, it is what it is.

          Using your own sites, there's no "6 month rule" except in certain countries (China and India for instance). However, it is often suggested since Google cites that for some applicants.

          Using Blogger or Hubpages to apply doesn't mean you're limited to using those platforms only. Once you've been approved, you can use your Adsense account on any compliant site.

          Since many people applying for Adsense don't have a site yet, we've found it to be a quicker and easier way to go.

          Here's the actual eligibility criteria:

          https://www.google.com/support/adsen...py?answer=9724

          Again, it is what it is. Once you have your account, you're good to go. Getting approved may be quick & easy, or it may take some time. The best we can do is try and make it as likely as we can to get approved.

      You don't necessarily have to wait, that's just a suggestion.

      One thing I can say though, don't fall for any "guaranteed approval" or "24 hour approval" offers.

    How many articles does each site need to have in order to reach the revenue stated?

      It depends on the keyword phrase group. The course teaches you how to find and develop a keyword phrase group. This becomes the basis of each site. How much content will depend on the keyword phrase group.

      Typically, this is 8-12 keyword phrases. For each one, there is an article for the site, plus a number of posts and article submissions. There isn't a specific number to say "this many articles will equal this much revenue". A higher-CPC keyword phrase group may require less content, however that same group, if they are more competitive might require more, etc.

      Sorry I can't be more precise, but this isn't that kind of 'push-button' application; rather the requirements will vary with the niche & keywords you chose to go after, what your revenue and timeline goals are, etc.

    Michael,

    I'm in Christchurch, New Zealand and after recent events (ongoing earthquakes!!! ) am looking at getting back into internet marketing in a big way to offset any dependence on the local job scene. Job security ain't what it used to be.

    My question is what is a reasonable timeframe to start seeing earnings of 1K per month using the A100KBlueprint for someone who has an Adsense account and can build sites? Domains, DNS forwarding and hosting is no problem either.

    Look forward to your reply.

      Hey Rob,

      My heart's with you all there; hope you didn't get hit too hard. If it helps, I'd like to offer you, and anyone else there who is experiencing direct hardship as a result of the earthquake, a 'scholarship' of sorts. I'd like to offer you the full package - the course, videos, forum, etc. at no cost upfront. Once you're 'on your feet' and earning with it, you can then buy your copy, but you'll have no obligation.

      Your question is a tough one to answer for all the obvious reasons, but I'll try:

      We'll assume you already have your Adsense account, access to hosting, Wordpress, etc., and that you take the time to go through the course - specifically, reading the ebook.

      From that point, you begin with your niche selection and keyword research. Depending on the tools you choose to use, and I provide examples using both free & paid tools, you might spend anywhere from an hour to a couple of days. Once you have your initial keyword phrase group, that's the point you really begin the 'work'.

      The 'work' initially consists of registering your domain, and setting up your Wordpress site (btw, we do provide video tutorials for those who are new or doing this for their first time).

      You'll then create or outsource your base content. This consists of an article for each keyword phrase in your chosen group - your 'ranking target' pages - plus another set of articles to be used as posts.

      Once the site and content are up and indexed, you begin your backlinking campaign. We provide an initial 3-week 'Blueprint' - do this day 1, this day 2, this day 3.... this and this week 2, this and this week 3, etc.

      It can take anywhere from 10-30 days for your pages to 'settle' in their initial rankings. From that point, it becomes an exercise of repeating the 'week 3' ranking routine to push those target pages up in the rankings.

      The goal is to get those pages to strong Page 1 rankings. That's when you'll be getting strong, steady traffic, and as a result, strong, steady revenues. Depending on the actual keyword phrases and their competition, you can realistically expect this to take anywhere from that first month, up to 3 months. On average, you should expect it to take around 45-75 days to get your top rankings.

      The entire plan is built on this premise: you choose a keyword phrase group that is not more than moderately competitive, and that has appropriate search volume and CPC's. You then follow a step-by-step plan to get ranked for each of those keywords. For your first site, unless you are experienced with how we do the keyword research, you should expect around $20-$40/per day once you get those Page 1 rankings.

      As your experience increases, you'll find you are able to develop better keyword phrase groups - higher search volume, more keywords, higher CPC's, etc. - and so your sites will in turn generate better revenues.

      Of course you aren't limited to building just one site, or even one at a time - in fact, we advocate building multiple sites once you fully understand the strategies - but realistically you shouldn't expect your first effort to be a Grand Slam.

      If I had to put it in those terms, I'd say on 'average', following the Blueprint closely, you should be able to see $25/day from the first site in 60-90 days. Once you understand the concepts and process, you can build more sites, higher-earning sites, or both. And of course once you have a site with a stable $25/day, you have also have a $7000-$10,000 asset.

      PM me if you'd like to take me up on my offer btw.

      Hope that answers the question - somewhat, at least

        It was quite surreal and one friend I personally knew was killed in the collapsed buildings but compared to Japan we got off lightly. My wife and kids were all OK so I am extremely grateful and have nothing to complain about.

        Very generous of you with the 'scholarship' but your course sounds good and my credit card is good so I'll gladly pay upfront like everyone else.

        I'm quite experienced with keyword research, however, you can never know everything so for these sites I'll simply follow the keyword research guidelines that you lay down in the book/video.

        Is this valuation according to flippa or similar sites I assume? I saw from your sales page that you did some impressive site flipping in record time! Probably looking to hold on to these assets for a while yet as (somewhat) passive income but good to know.

          Yes, Adsense sites that aren't junk and have some month-to-month earnings history are in high demand and command a very high premium. Blueprint sites sell very well, and very fast. You can expect from 10-22 times monthly earnings, depending on how much earnings history there is.

          In the course I specifically advocate keeping half your sites and flipping half. This give you the 'best of all worlds', the daily revenue stream, and the 'bird-in-hand' lump-sum infusions. This is the strategy I employ for myself as well.

      Though I'm obviously not an 'impartial party', what I can tell you from my own experience, and recent threads on our forum, which is pretty much what one would expect.

      Those sites, and those building sites, that adhere to the guidelines in terms of content quality, site layout, etc., have not seen any adverse impact - in more than a few cases, sites have jumped up.

      Those site, and those building sites, who are 'winging it', taking shortcuts, or falling short in regards to their content, are not seeing much progress, and in some cases sharp drops.

      That said, I should mention that a few sites that one would have thought would have been hit, haven't been, while a few that seemed like they should have been fine got hit.

      Hi Randy,

      While the forum isn't necessary in order to succeed with the Blueprint, and it was written to completely stand on it's own, it has become a tremendous resource, with over 600 active members, and over 6000 posts in 900+ threads.

      In addition to a lot of helpful & motivated people sharing tips, progress, success - and failure - stories, there is a ton of info covering questions about Adsense, the new 'Farmer' update, implementing the various steps of the Blueprint, keyword research, competitive analysis, content writing, backlinking, technical issues, site flipping, etc., plus a lot of 'goodies'.

      We also provide 'expert' site reviews & analysis; there's a section specifically for this, so someone can make sure they're on the right track and implementing the tactics correctly, double-check their niche & keyword research choices, and get advice for any stage they're at. URL's and keywords are kept confidential unless someone chooses to post their info publicly; and in fact there are quite a few people doing this, and a lot of 'cooperative' support and suggestions between members.

      I would say the main benefits are a) being able to 'compare notes' with others following the same strategies - ask questions and get quick answers, clarify things than may not be clear, etc., b) have your progress personally reviewed w/ constructive feedback, and c) the motivation, community, and positive support that totally permeates the forum.

      It's developed into a great group of people, with a great 'attitude' and feel.

      I should also mention, the forum will be expanded very soon to include our upcoming "Traffic $100k Blueprint", so there will be additional 'cross-benefits' even to those who don't purchase 'T100k' - which btw will be released first, and at a steep discount, to A100k customers.

    Randy, the forum is useful if at least to get you started. Most of us have found this as a steep learning curve and with everybody else on the forum it's good to have others to bounce even the silliest question over.

    The biggest benefit of being on the forum is that it's not a secretive thing. Everybody wants each other to succeed and are willing to help you get there and you'll also find many people with lots of different experience coming together to give their expertise to help you put it all together.

    The other cool part is that when people start trying other things they're quick to report if it did or did not workout to save you the trouble and pitfalls. Give the forum a shot and just sit down with a notepad and take notes. If you don't see it's for you or you're brain is full then tell them you want to cancel it.

    btw this is a unbiased review, I bought the program and on the forum and I've been doing adsense stuff for many years

      Just a quick post to say how much I'm enjoying the whole experience of being a member of 100K Adsense Blueprint community.

      I love the product, it is one of the best and most detailed courses on IM I have bought. It is clearly written by someone who is in the trenches, DOING IT (very successfuly it seems) and not someone whose theories sound good and "should definitely work"

      I also really like the forum and find it incredibly helpful and inspirational to be amongst a group of people following similar path and aiming at similar goals.

      One of the best things though is having Michael and Adam (the two product creators) available on the forum every day to answer all kinds of questions. Even stupid ones .

      Too many product creators have their customer support outsourced and that often just doesn't work. Well not here! I have had my questions answered by both Adam and Michael on the open Forum, as Private Messages and by personal email. The guys are super helpful and quick to respond (most of the time )

      I can't recommend this course highly enough.
