Question about XFactor's Adsense Course

by Biggy Fat 105 replies
Hello World. Two days ago I was patient enough to read through all thirty two pages of that closed thread and did a whole lot of studying. ATM I don't have the actual membership but the thread opened up my eyes on how to go about doing it. But here is one thing: What is a recommended theme to make it work with Wordpress? I can't build a template in XSitePro for the life of me nor do I have the cash to outsource it ATM.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

    "Patient" hardly seems the right word for reading through pages of such excellent content ;-)

    If you buy the ebook, you will see how to lay out your pages. There is also an upgrade offer to buy a Wordpress theme.

    Thanks for your answer man. Thing is, the thread already opened up my eyes as to how to lay it all out and everything, and right now I can't invest in the course. Ideas were flowing and I took a crap load of notes. But what I was asking is are there any recommended themes with Wordpress that I can use it for (the freely available ones)?

      Well, I went ahead and chose a Wordpress theme that I think will bring me high conversions. But after studying that closed thread some more I have just one more beef: Page Rank.

      When looking at the PR on the competing sites on the first page, what's the maximum PR I should even deal with before attempting to rank my site? I've seen as high as PR4 with one or two or three sites with some of my great KWs. Should backlinking help me beat those PR4 sites?

    Just a note for some folks regarding the wordpress theme, my version 2 (the offered one from John's course) is coming out either late today or tomorrow morning that includes the config page and in regards to the PR issue with new sites, don't worry about it.

    I'll give you an example. John posted up the topic of bbq grills in his first thread. Bucking the trend, i decided to see if there were any tasty keyword domains available, and if there were- could i compete due to the other sites centered around that keyword.

    One month later, after building out that site, i was already making money. That one site made $9.15 in 30 days. Not bad

      Not at all.

      If there aren't 4,500 new BBQ sites that were made after that thread came out, I'd be surprised.

    I know the content is great and he does a wonderful job of laying it all out, has anyone been able to pull in the incredible CTR that he has (IE: 50% +)?

      Getting such a high CTR not only depends on your site layout, but
      also the keywords used, the type of traffic coming in, and more
      importantly, how targeted that traffic is.

      I'm using his guide to the T and only see 2-5% CTR..... I haven't had much luck yet. $.20 days aren't thrilling when being pulled from 4 mini-sites, most being on the first page of google for their keyword phrase.

    I've done some split testing (2 days on, 2 days off) and have seen anywhere from 15-35% INCREASE in my tests. That's from my own experience, so you're mileage may vary.

    Sounds great, guys. I will go with my gut and say PR4 or less. BTW, I do have MNF to help me out on the SOC, and it is a HUGE help. You could spend all day finding niches to exploit haha.

    Read through my 30-page thread again, it explains how simple my
    layout is.

    In case you did not pay attention, here ya go:

    1) Header with main keyword in it.
    2) Navigation in header and in right panel.
    3) Large Adsense block (336 x 280) below the title and intro paragraph.
    4) Content underneath.

    Now get to work picking your niches, writing content and getting traffic.

    You can get up and running with a very decent hosting plan for under $30 bucks for your entire first year including a domain name (if you just look for a coupon code). In other words, you can get started for the price of a movie for 2. There are just so many ways to make money with that hosting plan, you really HAVE to get that money back at least ten fold within the course of a year if you at least try, and not even try all that hard.

    The first site I put up I hand coded (without any idea what I was even doing). It looked awful, and I had NO idea about SEO (on-site or off). But I found a relevant affiliate offer, put up the banners, added a couple links, and moved on. Within 6 months, it had made $250 in commissions. In the time since, it's made around $5,000 in affiliate sales. And I have never touched it, other than to move it to a slightly less hideous static template.

    I've literally never not made money on a site, whether through affiliate offers or adsense. It might not be much, but they always make money. Maybe it's $15 a month, maybe it's $900. They key is actually putting in the work to get them live and building the links.

    There has never been a business opportunity as easy to start and to build as an internet business. If you really want to start one, then you can find the money, even if you have to collect cans. Because it is shocking how much you can bring in with just that $30 investment, some effort, and lots of trial and error.

    I agree with John that 20%-30% (sometimes higher) is about par for the course for the sites that I produce.
