Xfactor's "Adsense Masters" Micro Niche Adsense Course

A Review Of Xfactor's "Adsense Masters" Course

If you've visited the Adsense board recently, you couldn't help but see the 1000+ reply, 50,000+ view thread entitled: 6 Months Later: $300 Daily w/Adsense (Lessons Learned)

The thread, based on 'lessons learned' from a full-time Adsense pro who recently doubled his Adsense revenues, very generously lays out the 'what' and 'how' of a very successful niche-based Adsense business.

Despite the generous postings of the OP, it was very clear that people were virtually begging for a step-by-step 'roadmap' of how to replicate John's successful business model.

The result is the "Adsense Masters Course".

For a Warrior special price of $39.95, I downloaded a 90+ page ebook that has to be one of the most detailed step-by-step guides, complete with a walk-you-through-everything course that lays bare John's exact business model.

This is NOT an "Adsense Encyclopedia", nor is it meant to be. John is very clear in stating that this is a very specific Adsense business model, and therein lays much of the goodness.

What you get is 7 chapters (94 pages) detailing EXACTLY how to duplicate John's current $300/day model.

(NOTE: There are also a series of videos coming within a few days)

The chapters are thorough, well-written, well-illustrated, and extremely easy to follow. While there is plenty of information on selecting niches, keyword research, Adsense placement, etc., every bit of it is in the context of reproducing John's exact strategy, right down to the nitty-gritty i.e. what colors your header should be and why, where to get your backlinks for ranking, precisely how to write your content - even down to how many words, etc.

You get screenshots of the exact templates John uses - worth the cost of the course alone, since they have already been tested, tweaked, and optimized to the nth degree.

The second-to-last chapter provides a detailed "7-day Action Plan" that a complete newbie can follow to success.

The final chapter, "Growing Your Business" provides an excellent discussion on getting beyond $10k/month.

Throughout the course - as was the case in the original threads - there is a good dose of reality: everything that's written is written from direct experience, and John is quick to point out where the limits of his experience are.

Bottom Line: If you want a real, detailed, proven Adsense business model that works, this is it. In fact, as someone who's been involved in Adsense for years, I have never seen such a complete, and completely realistic, "Here's Exactly How To Create A Successful, Long-Term Adsense Business" guide anywhere, for any amount.

It should be noted that by itself, the course will not do a thing for you - there is real work involved. However, if you have the willingness and desire, but lack the blueprint, now you've got it made.

    Actually I have to totally agree with the review above. Read the book in an hour and started implementing it right away (damn my 9-5 that doesn't allow me to work on it full time - just yet).

    I would like to add something clever here as my personal review, but I can't, the above post really touched on everything that is important take away from it. It's so simple and so far reaching, it's amazing. And one thing I was musing about yesterday is that in a way or another we all do it to an extent, we just don't realise it. We all do article marketing, setting up sites, but at least for me, so far evereything was so scattered, I diidn't put it all together. Seriously, this was one investment I don't regret at all having done.

      Ah, glad to see someone taking this up, I wanted to comment also.

      I have been following John's thread as well - it contains loads of useful information by itself already. Then, when it became clear that he was going to write it all up in detail, I decided to buy his course, and I was not disappointed.

      The PDF is a complete compendium of John's business model. I have yet to see someone else give out that much detail about their working processes. It's pure gold.

      Personally, when I surf around concerning IM topics, I'm totally sick and tired of all those silly sales pages, all the nebulous promises, the ongoing hunt for yet another better "tool" to make you insane riches instantly, the daily list messages constipating my inbox that are endlessly promoting more videos, more e-books and more "tools".

      John's course is refreshingly different. It's a BS free zone. He doesn't promise you'll get rich without much work - quite on the contrary, he is brutally honest and makes it very clear that you do have to work hard and consistently, and then he lays out the exact steps for you. It can't get much easier than that.

      Also, there is nothing nebulous about his method, he is very up front and makes it clear that what he reveals is his personal business model which has earned him substantial amounts.

      The course - and before that, the "Lessons learned" thread - has shown me that the time to stop shopping around and procrastinating is over NOW. You won't earn a penny if you don't take action, so I'm taking action now. The first niche keywords are identified, the first domains are being registered, content is being written as we speak (well, once I'm finished writing this post anyway ).

      My personal challenge will be to adopt the Xfactor method to the German market, where many things work a bit differently.

      Also, the way I'm going to manage my microsites will be different from what John proposes: I'm going to use a multi-blog Wordpress setup because I'm comfortable with it, and WP can be beautifully tailored to manage small non-blog sites as well. Besides, that gives me a way of managing my sites wherever I happen to be, without being tied to my home computer.

      I cannot thank John enough, first for giving out all his useful advice on the "Lessons learned" thread, and then putting it all together in a low-priced cookbook where he shares all the fine details.

      Kind regards,
      Zorro

        I agree with all of the above. This is the best course on adsense you will ever find. Straight and to the point, no fluff or hype, it's simple to understand so even a beginner could easily follow John's instructions and make money.

        John's personal 7 day action plan alone is worth the price he is asking for the entire course. It tells you exactly what you need to do each day to build 2 micro sites every 7 days. Just rinse and repeat to build your virtual real estate into a money making empire.

        John - Thank you once again for creating this money making masterpiece.

            Ditto, ditto, ditto to all of the above. It took me all day between those pesty work interruptions to get through the e-book but I devoured with enthusiasm every word of it.

            I, like so many, have jumped from one thing to another and just a few months ago decided to focus my time back on my Adsense sites. Even though I have made money with affiliate marketing and my own e-book, I think Adsense/Amazon/Ebay sites are my favorite.

            I think when we first start experiencing internet marketing it is a little bit like being a teenager again, where we have to just try everything to get it out of our system.

            John's e-course has added to my desire to just focus on my Adsense sites. I think all the benefits of the e-course have been laid out here in previous posts so I won't repeat them.

            As John says, he is the real deal and if you are interested in making your income from Adsense then get yourself a copy and get started.

              Just want to add yet another glowing endorsement for John's Adsense Masters Course and his excellent thread.

              I agree with everything I have read in this thread.

              As some have pointed out, John is VERY responsive and the course is incredibly detailed. The things that I worried may not be covered sufficiently (not due to John, but due to past experience) were content creation and template design. I was extremely pleased to find that he did a bang up job covering both. I can't think of anything he missed in this course, and he even tells you why along the way. Also, his writing style is very appealing which makes the book a very enjoyable read.

              A+++, two thumbs up, highly recommended, etc, etc

              If you want excellent info and a complete system for growing an adsense business, this is a must have.

    Hi,

    John´s course is very detailed and precise. One of the best courses I ever bought. I hope that everything will work out for us/me too in the same manner that it did for John. OTOH I hate to see it proclaimed here. It should be kept as a secret -

    Yes this course is in fact the REAL DEAL... John is a perfectionist when it comes to keeping his customers happy and he totally over-delivered on this one. And to think, there are still videos to come

    The template layout he explains and gives live links to starting on page 57 are outstanding and when he explains why he did what he did, it really makes a lot of sense (adsense in fact ). Something I never would have thought of on my own that's for sure!

    Job Well Done!

    It always surprises me that people are singing praises on a method that they have not actually tested. Just because something sounds good; it does not mean it is.

    Nevertheless, I would like to actually try the system. The link provided above though gives me this error:

      While I certainly agree with you, just from the free advice on the thread I was able to increase AdSense earnings on my main site, so it works.

      Now I'll know much more in a few of weeks as I'm in the midst of implement Xfactor's methods on new sites. Should know a lot in just a few days actually, but so far, so good.

      The course is great AND I'm making more money so far - how much more remains to be seen, but I'm super positive! Now back to work on AdSense and The Xfactor way . . .

      John sent an email today saying he would have the site down for a few hours to do some work on it.

      Separately, I've been doing Adsense for years, and have many sites that follow a very similar strategy. I can say from direct experience that his tactics work.

      While I can certainly understand your sentiment because I have felt the same way about so many different methods in the past, this is not the case here. I have been following the thread in the adsense section of the forum since the beginning. I put the tips into motion and greatly increased my adsense income from those alone.

      The book...and coming videos...just takes it all a step further. There is nothing more that I can add to the previous testimonials for John's course. The simple way John has laid this out means that ANYONE can put this into action today without fear of not knowing how to do it or if it will actually work. He literally walks you through everything.

      It really comes down to this...for newbies and those who have struggled for several years to make any real online income...you can either continue to buy WSO after WSO (I've been there myself over the years) or the next latest and greatest $2000 "guru" product and chase rabbits month after month looking for the next "big thing"...or you can get this course and start making a consistent monthly income.

      Thanks, John for putting out a quality product.

      How do you know that people have not tested the method? The ones who bought the course didn't just buy it as a new WSO just because of the hype and a few well placed testimonials that some people gave (and we know about these types of testimonials,don't we). The manual (and later on the video that is coming) has been done at the request of the people who actuallly implemented some of what the free thread gave them and they saw already they adsense earnings increase - based on the free thread. I am following the thread from the beginning and only yesterday bought the course. Had plenty of time to test it out on my existing sites (didn't have the actual template John is talking about) and my Adsense earnings went up quite a bit.

      For example I have a site that is making me on a daily basis 50-80 cents, sometimes as low as 25-30 cents. It's a personal site of mine about meditation, so I was not really focusing on Adsense to be honest with this site. As soon as I changed the other day my Adsense the way John described in the thread, I saw an increase to up to $1.65 for that site. Yes you might say it's nothing, but that's just one site that doesn't conform to John's specifications, just switched around a bit the Adsense and removed the additional ones I had on that page to unclutter the site a bit. And the earnings went up.

      So yes, that works and this is what made me buy John's product. Can you say the same for the many WSO's that are posted on the forum that people buy really unknowingly of what it will really bring them as all one has in front is a well crafted sales letter with some well placed testimonials?

      I too followed the thread and bought the course and, WOW, what a bargain. John really delivered and wrote the book in a very easy style. I totally agree about it being a BS free zone and I too am so sick and tired of all the hype around the IM world - the sales letters that would fell a forest if printed on paper, the "here's how to earn $59,743.14 in 4 days" type promises and the never ending supply of tools and systems. John lays out a very easy to replicate system that involves that awful phrase "hard work". Im going to give it a go - hope you do too!

        Amen to that! And many of these gurus just repackage information put it on DVDs and charge $1995. And, once you get on a "guru" list it seems you get bombarded solicitations from 20 other guru's.

    Simply A.M.A.Z.I.N.G

    I never give reviews on stuff because it usually sucks. However after reading Johns thread twice I thought the best way to tip him would be to buy his ebook.

    ...I think I owe him another tip.

    The book is awesome. He IS the "real deal" and goes waaayyyy beyond your every expectation.

    I'm just sooooo happy I started reading the Warrior Forum and stumbled on Johns thread (which is a must read too!!!)

    If you want to learn how to make a sustainable income from Adsense (or affiliate commissions) the read Johns book....read it 2-3 times....let it sink in.

    Then Act....that's all you have to do (and that's the hardest part).

    Thanks John

        I give John the same glowing reviews already given above for his Adsense Masters' Course. I'm extremely happy that I bought his course as this is the real deal - and to be around a no BS teacher! He explains exactly and clearly what, why and how it should be done, unlike all the puzzles and scams of past courses that I bought that I couldn't quite piece together.

        I consider him a real mentor and myself lucky to have found his course. I also want to concentrate on this business plan now.

        Thanks a lot, John!

        Oh, and I would also like to be PMd if you know of a suitable WP theme. I'm interested in XSitePro, but will get it later - when I'm making $300 p.d. , through John's aff link.

    John thank you so much for such an easy to follow, detailed course. Everything you need to make his type of sites is freely shared so we can replicate his success....have researched and bought my domains and am now writing the first page for my site, and it's just about ready to publish.

    I would prefer to use the wordpress platform rather than Xsite-pro and was wondering if anyone knows a theme that can be tweaked to look like Johns sites as shown in his ebook. You could private message me so as not to give anything away about his layout. Will appreciate any info about this and again thanks John for a great ebook.

If you don't get it you will be the one who misses out. It's unfortunate that some people let few pennies get in the way of dollars. Every successful business has a start up cost this is cheap for a life time of income stream.

    This course is a breath of fresh air. No hype, but a COMPLETE detailed blueprint which anyone can follow.

    Anyone who is in this business for any length of time will be sick of all the products where all the effort has gone into the sales letter and little into the product. Which is often incomplete and impossible to implement.

    This course will go down as THE course for 2009. From a marketer who dare I say it, is honest for a change and not a professional conman- sorry Guru.

    He tells it all. Warts and all.

    After spending 18 hours reading and rereading the course I have now changed all my efforts to implementing it in every detail.

    Thank you John for "telling it all".

    I realised a rather weird phenomenon. The courses that gave me the most mileage and improved earnings have been WSOs which all costs less than 50 dollars. I have joined costly programs from a number of so-called gurus, yet, the effects on my business are less. I suppose the gurus talk more about strategies and not so much the step by step tactics.

    Anyway, Great job John. I have seen improvements in my earning since i made slight changes to my sites. And yes, wordpress sites work just as well too.

      First of all, THANK YOU all for the kind words.


      Second, it's not my business to interfere in an independent review
      thread, but I wanted to bring up Loy's template because I've gotten
      a lot of complaints about Loy's posting of his wordpress template
      from paying customers of my course.

      No Need For Concern

      1) Loy is a good guy and is just offering a starting point for those that
      use wordpress.

      2) There is SO MUCH MORE to my exact replica in the course - little
      details that Loy is not sharing.

      3) And finally, a template is just a small fraction of what I lay out in
      my course so there is no need to be concerned (but I DO appreciate
      all of you looking out
      )

      John, and others, I'm sorry... the thought didn't even cross my mind that I was sharing information from the ebook. I just saw that a fellow buyer wanted to use WP so I whipped the theme up quickly, but again, my apologies - I've deleted it, sorry about that fellow buyers!

      And to prospective buyers, I can tell you that a theme or template is hardly enough to find success with. I have sites that have a consistent 25% CTR on a monthly basis, but that is just one part of the equation. I don't have the traffic I want, and my EPC often doesn't make sense.

      I choose what I purchase very carefully, and John's book is a very informative read. If you really do need a crash course on what to do, buy it. Think of it as replacing a night out or something if you find it expensive. The other option is go through a ton of experience yourself, which takes a lot of time and patience. As John says himself, the book condenses what he's learned over a long period of time, and that's exactly what the book puts forth. He doesn't try to sell you this or that, or lead you on, and is absolutely straight up about what you need to do.

          I also bought the course but didn't see the option to buy the theme.

          I PM'd Kael41 (David) about purchase but haven't heard back yet. I know he was in the process of updating the theme.

        I'll not expend a lot of vocabulary extolling the virtues of
        John's (XFACTOR) book and program except to agree with those
        who have praised it. This is good stuff and presented in a
        manner I would compare to a father trying to save his teenage
        son the pain of the many scars he is about to gather as he
        begins to enter adulthood.

        "Son", the father might say, "I know you are probably not
        going to listen to me because the knowledge you have gained
        in 13 or 14 years of life you feel outweighs my years in the
        trenches. However if you will have patience to listen to what
        I have to say then maybe later if you do not find success you
        may want to give my methods a chance."(Remember how much
        smarter your father got the older you got?)

        I as many others have purchased many products. Some good. Some
        not so good and some absolute trash. This is how we learn. If
        I were asked to recommend a single program to someone just
        starting out in internet marketing, this would be the plan. The
        only investment I can see is the very modest cost of the plan
        that John has given us Warriors plus hosting and domains. I don't
        know of any good methods of building a successful business on the
        internet without the last two.

        No fancy software or trickery is needed. He does recommend a
        paid keyword tool. I noticed he did that without an affiliate
        link. I can vouch for that tool also. However the plan is
        chock full of a four letter word that I know will discourage
        some folks. (Probably mostly affect those who have not been
        successful) I will repeat that word here but please do not send
        me angry emails for my choice of language. I got this directly
        from John's ebook. The word--WORK. Yep you will have to do some.
        He mentions it enough to make sure you understand.

        Personally I don't think what he describes as work is actually
        labor. I believe once you start doing what he recommends you will
        find it enjoyable. After all where else in life can you write
        articles and have a chance to express yourself while at the same
        time earning money from your efforts?

        However having said all that I must confess that just like the
        teenage son I do have a couple of problems. Not with John's
        methods. I think they will work well if followed to a tee.
        However as many folks who have wandered around the net for a
        number of years I have developed a few habits that will be very
        difficult to alter.

        First I love Wordpress. It has been so long since I built a for
        real website that I have forgotten what HTML stands for. So I
        will start to follow John's instructions with this one exception.
        I gotta try it first with my blogs. You might as well ask me to
        give up powdered sugar donuts. I am just not that strong.

        (However I am also convinced that some early morning when no one
        is around I will sneak over to the machine and build a couple of
        those html thing-a-ma-jigs to test against my blogs. I am hard
        headed and weak but not so dumb to pass up what might be excellent
        advice).

        The only other problem I struggled with was putting text on these
        sites describing a product with out then throwing in an affiliate
        link. However I have overcome this fear and am now building and
        in some cases rebuilding existing sites following John's advice.

        It makes a lot of sense. Sure some affiliate commissions are
        greater but they do have to buy something as opposed to Adsense
        where the mere action of a click puts us on the positive side of
        the balance sheet. He does give us the latitude to put affiliate
        links in but I will, in the effort of withdrawal go with his best
        advice.

        However in the effort of total disclosure I will still set up
        at least 4 sites on different IP's with good keywords to link
        to the main site. On these sites I will continue to use software
        to bring in eBay and Amazon ads. Hopefully this will not distort
        or worse yet hamper my efforts in using John's methods.

        For those of you who, like me, just gotta try it once with Wordpress
        I would offer one tip. I made my blog template into an almost
        exact copy of John's html site. I use Artisteer to build my
        templates. However one problem remained and that was the colored
        stripe that John mentions. But I believe you could make a reasonable
        example of the site with any good available template. The main
        problem is the colored stripe.

        It is not necessary to delve into the mysteries of php and CSS to
        solve this issue. Just make sure you use a template that allows
        widgets. Drag a single text widget over, insert a table the proper
        size and background color and then place the suggested information
        in the table and your problem is solved. I am sorry I can not be
        more explicit but John has earned the right to keep his template
        and it's design to himself and his customers. I want to be of help
        but do not want to disclose his hard earned methods.

        Anyway, looking back over this diatribe I guess I used up a lot more
        vocabulary than I intended. Some things are just worth the effort
        of describing. I think John has done a masterful job on his program
        and you could benefit yourself greatly I believe if you made the
        investment.

          nice post ironwood,

          but,

          I see clearly the trend of wordpress and people who are trying
          to sell training suggesting wordpress. [not including John].

          This is because wordpress is easy to set-up, though it is not
          the best way.

          I strongly suggest using an html website, because they rank better,
          and maintain rankings better than wordpress. If you don't keep
          updating wordpress your rankings will decrease.

          Your rankings and traffic will remain stable more with an html site,
          just as John says once you get the backlinks and rankings there is
          little maintenance.

          SBI! - Blog or Build?

          I am still using frontpage 2003, if you don't like that use xsitepro.

          But find a way to build a html site.

          There is a membership site that launched recently, they make 6-figures a month
          with there system, they promote using wordpress, but later they mentioned their
          own sites are html. To me that is very telling.

          I'm sure there membership site would be less success if they told people
          they had to build a site with frontpage or dreamweaver. They know people are
          scared to do this or too lazy to learn.

          Ok, I'll stop because this is a review thread.

          John's adsense course is super, you'll learn adsense conversion tips
          not taught anywhere else, not even taught by Joel Comm, John is better.

          Just use an html website.

            I'm actually a little ill that John has now made it simple for everyone to use a method almost exactly like what I have been using and keeping quiet about.

            However, I just want to make it clear that just because you use WP, you don't have to make your site a "blog". It's just a content management system. You can duplicate the recommended sites exactly using Wordpress. This program is great no matter which site building method you prefer.

    The ebook sounds awesome! I would like to get it but would like to know if the program will work for sure on Word Press.
    And if so what themes are recommended? I really don't want to learn coding, WP is enough for me, so I want to be sure I can find a theme that will work for the design that is recommended.

    This is definitely the best and most informative e-book I have ever read. It's worth sooooo much more than what it is being sold for.

    John takes the time to break-down every single aspect of such a simple process so that you really can't get it wrong.

    I read the book twice so that I missed nothing - and I still keep referring back to it constantly.

    MNF and XsitePro takes awhile to get used to - but after you spend some time with both programs and get the hang of it all - you get an awesome overload

    I'm currently promoting my first 2 sites and am starting my next 2.

    So I will keep everyone updated with my progress.

          If you are so worried and know that he is breaking all of Adsense's TOS, then why would you even consider buying his products? Do you have proof of your accusations? That's a pretty serious statement to make.

              In the interest of clarity and to avoid misinformation - and in fairness to John - can you please be more specific about how ALL of his layout break Adsense TOS and which particular provision in the said TOS he breaches?

                I really have nothing to hide, so I'll be more than happy to discuss
                all questions/concerns with you guys.

                About the video, last year I made a quick video showing a replica of
                the layout that I used for my big health site, that is still earning over
                $100 daily to this day.

                As far as breaking TOS:

                He may be referring to having my large Adsense block immediately
                below my page title in that old video.

                Yes this can be a problem, if your title is misleading, like "Click below
                on today's best deals"
                or some nonsense like that.

                However, in my current course I suggest to everyone to have a few
                sentences of text below the title
                if you guys are worried about that.

                The one thing about my course is that I show you exactly what I do,
                and I stay very humble on the fact that you can (and should) make
                changes to your own business as you see fit, and just use my course
                as a blueprint.

              This is ridiculous and I'm calling you on this. Either provide proof that all of John's layouts break Asense TOS or you are simply trying to trash this thread and John's credibility. I don't want to hear BS...I want the facts. Back it up and I'll be the first one to issue you an apology.

                  Next couple of days. Between settling down from moving and
                  getting my new operating system up and running windows (Mac),
                  it's been busy.

                  Should be no later than Tuesday, and although it is a complete change
                  from my current article marketing strategy, it's just a different direction.

                  There is no one-way of doing any of this, and the best way to succeed
                  is to try many different variations and see how they work out for you.

                  I've also got to update the entire "template" issue, which is getting a
                  little out of hand.

                  I want you all to use my book as a guide, but at the same time be an
                  individual because you will do much better if you go with your own
                  intuition combined with some experience from me and others.

    Did you have experience of developing more than 1000 domains?
    If you don't but you want such experience, you should buy the book
    I haven't finish reading yet, but when I read that he bought 100 domains over, I know this experience is worth the money.

    I would like to chime in with an enthusiastic review of this ebook. For me this ebook paid for itself 48 hours after I implemented John's suggestions.

    I implemented some of John's suggestions on my existing review site and doubled my income overnight - literally. I did not know that my titles, colors, layout and AdSense placement could use improvement. Also, I didn't understand that certain distractions were preventing visitors from clicking on my AdSense ads.

    Although the writing isn't the best, I highly recommend this ebook because John explains _exactly_ what he does on a daily basis to achieve his high AdSense income.

    I hope more gurus take John's approach and share the details of their daily routine.

      Having your adsense block right below your headline
      is not against TOS. Show me where it says that.

      The only thing that may be of concern is if you confuse

          Personally I did not learn anything new. Everything that is in the ebook is already in this forum and in many other other ebooks/reports that have come out over the years. His principles, as he himself says, are basic.
          I read the entire two threads that xfactor started and what I noticed was that people jumped in with questions again and again that had already been answered more than once.

          That's the reason some will want this info - because they don't trust themselves to pull the gems out of those free threads but want it condensed and laid out for them neatly. That's fine - maybe that is what some need. If you are already in good profit with adsense as many of us are - why would need any product telling you how to do it?

          There is no magic bullet - but there are placements and site arrangements that increase adsense income. Those who already profit well from adsense don't need any "how to".

          If you are going to buy any make money product - it's a good idea to buy it from someone who is actually DOING what he's telling you how to do. You might be amazed how many WSO offers here are "ideas" that have never been implemented.

          The principles in this product probably are basic (disclaimer - I didn't buy it because I've done adsense for years) - so what? There is no "fancy" way to do everything - getting too creative with adsense gets you banned by google.

          As for xfactor - week after week he has come back to his threads where he freely offered advice AFTER testing and using the methods for some time. I think he had to create the product just to be able to leave the thread and its never ending questions.

          kay

          edit: As for the amount of work involved it is in reality much less than with many money making methods that work. Those who believe that an hour or two of doing "something" will cause money to flow into their paypal account need to join the real world.

              Here is my opinion:

              Any business that relies on AdSense, PPC (Adwords) or SEO is at the mercy of Google. This does not mean that you won't make money. It just means that Google could decide to cut you off at any time. Google constantly changes the rules.

              You always need to be aware of this fact and deal with it in one of three ways:
              1. don't base your business on traffic from Google or Google's ad network (AdSense)
              2. use PPC, SEO and your adsense earnings to build an audience that Google cannot take away from you (think email newsletter)
              3. base your business on Google and just realize that it could go away at any time (be sure to save your earnings). When it does go away, move on.

              Also, keep in mind the dynamic nature of this game means that new opportunities are constantly presenting themselves. Don't be a victim the next time Google changes the rules. Figure out what new opportunity just opened up and take advantage of it.

    Xfactor, just curious about your clickthroughs using your special template.

    What is the overall average clickthrough for all of your sites that use that special template? In the course you mention that you sometime get high 90% and even 100% CTR on some some sites, sometimes. But what is your total average CTR?

    Thanks

    Just finished reading the book after seeing all of the glowing reviews.

    Personally I did not learn anything new. Everything that is in the ebook is already in this forum and in many other other ebooks/reports that have come out over the years. His principles, as he himself says, are basic.

    I guess we humans are like dogs and like to follow leaders. Perhaps it is easier to take action when somebody who claims that they know what they are doing tells us that something works.

    I gather that most people who see this ebook as a revelation are probably quite new or not very well versed in the Adsense game.

    The ebook is useful if you are new to Adsense as it provides an actionable plan in one document.

    Most people though will fail at his method simply because it requires a lot of work if you do not have the funds to outsource.

    Just a small review. I am not a newbie when it comes to adsense and building sites. I read the course yesterday and I know for a fact that what he tells is working.

    Ranking: What he describes to look for and what domains to buy is what I have been doing exactly lately and it works

    Backlinks: he wrote something that I never knew was possible using articlemarketing. That tip alone for me will be worth more then the course.

    Layout: I have used a layout that came close to what he descibed on some sites and had CTR % that came close to 30% and I was happy with it but now I see his actual layout and the % he sometimes get I will change all sites I have using that layout and see what it will mean for my adsense income.

    Wordpress or not....I see some people asking if this works with wordpress and even some telling that wordpress will not rank as fast/long as a standard html site. I just want to trow in my experience. Wordpress is nothing more but a cms. The output is html.....that's why you are able to see a wordpress site in your browser Wordpress doesn't have to be a blog. It can be just the same as the example site John shows us ...even with some benefits as you can scedule posts in the sequence like John tells you too.
    footprints in templates...use css. make a template, call it default. In the template have a header, navigation, content, sidebar and footer. Keep it that simple and use css to add the width, background, colors, textsizes and images. That's the way I will make it.

    Hope this helps a bit

      Ya know, it's so easy to do because all you need to use are the
      XsitePro functions to make the right side, header, and main page.

      Then just type in your links.

      I'll be putting up a video tomorrow on this for XsitePro users, however
      I still use version 1, but I think the process is still the same.

          Yes I do have a few simple videos ready, but I also want to include a wordpress template video that my designer is making, so hopefully he will be ready tomorrow and I can just post them all up at the same time.

          Don't worry though, you are not missing anything that isn't in my book. The vids are just snapshots of MNF and XsitePro, plus a few tips on adding pages to your sites.

            I know you mention, MANY times, NOT to stray from you ebook. But, my question pertains to web site creation and an alternative to XSitepro. Would it make much difference if we use an ONLINE site creation tool like Weebly (which James from MNF recommends). Hence creating so many micro sites , could save substantial time not having ro code locally and upload into every individual domain space. I use Web SIte Tonoght for all my other sites

              Actually, quite the contrary - I urge you to use your own twist,
              but trying to use my guide as a backbone.

              I would never suggest anyone to follow me blindly because there are just
              too many directions you can take your publishing business into.

              And yes, any site builder tool is fine - any of them.

                    Hi guys, the price is finalized now at $67.00. I kept the discount
                    open as long as I could, even after promising earlier customers
                    that I would raise the price sooner.

                    Now I have to keep my promise and set the final price.

                    But think about it, it's only an extra $20 bucks - for a course
                    that a customer recently told me this in an email:

                    "Hi John,


                    I've finished reading thru the course the first time. As a semi-professional in
                    buying other people's course (supposed to be a joke), I will have to say this
                    is probably one of the only courses where a true model and plan is laid out.


                    So many courses today have professional copywriters putting together the
                    presentations, hooking up with big name JV partners, and putting together
                    persuasive materials.

                    I have bought more than my share, as I know many others have as well. The
                    common denominator in these other courses is that when you have finished
                    the material, you are left with little or no direction. Their material is purposefully
                    left with holes so you don't get the full picture.


                    Anyway, I wanted to compliment you on your ebook. Very well done."

    Truly, the course was worth it to learn about two things -

    1. The simplicity of the template - and how much psychology is in it! I bow to your ingenuity John!
    2. How you market your sites. Never thought about that way, but it really is quite brilliant! To be honest, do you think that using a package like Angela's backlinks with your plan could be beneficial?

    Thanks!

    I don't see why not as I am not using XSitepro either I use Whypark which is a content driven hosting provider. I have a very simple template on there very much like the one John describes in the course. (Just in case anyone questions my choice of Whypark I can put up unlimited unique content articles on it as well as Adsense or any other advertiser I wish). The reason I use it is because of it's speed and sheer simplicity. Ideal I think for following John's programme.

    This really is an excellant course. But the "proof is in the pudding"......

    I have made 4 sites using John's method over the last 2 weeks or so and I've earned $62 so far. Although, I do think I've struck lucky with a couple of Ezine articles that seem to be bringing a ton of direct traffic at the min - this will probably fizzle out. But still getting plenty of Google search engine traffic for the sites.

    I wish I didnt get so many clicks for the right hand Link ads though as they pay rubbish!

    I have wrote a few articles and done one or two other backlinking backlinking methods.

    So this is an excellant course and really does work - provide you:

    a) follow exactly John's advice
    b) put the work in - and some more

    Very pleased with it so far.

    Hi everybody...

    I just wanted to post my experience real quick...I bought John's book, and I have to say I was a bit skeptical until I read the whole book and saw that his strategy could absolutely work.

    I applied his strategy to a site I already had up...it has been getting about 10-15 uniques a day and in 6 months I only had 22 clicks.

    I changed to Johns Strategy and two Days later... I got 7 clicks out of 15 uniques! I only made the change 2 days ago. THIS IS HUGE FOR ME! I have been waiting for something to work...and finally! The dollar amount was not huge...but in the scheme of things this is absolutely huge! I am so excited!

    Hope this helps for anyone still on the fence. John's book is really well written and laid out.
    He has a great 7 day action plan.

    I just bought the course, but haven't yet received a confirmation email or download link. Is this normally automated or do I need to wait for John to respond? If it's the latter, so be it, I can wait (but I would prefer the former as I'm eager to get my hands/eyes on it!)

      It should arrive soon. John could be busy at the moment.

      In the meantime, let the excitement build. It's a great buy!

    I think John sends it out manually. I think it's a public holiday weekend in the US so that might cause some delays. In the meantime you can get a lot from reading the original thread John started in the SEO forum.

    Got it! Thanks Razor. I already read through the ENTIRE original thread, taking 14 pages of notes. ) While I don't expect to find anything remarkably new in the ebook, I think it will be a great resource to have as a better organized and more complete version of my notes. Plus, honestly, I felt I owed it to John to make a purchase. He gave away so much in that original thread that I see this as a way of saying Thank You (and getting some additional value for my money too, I am sure!) Looking forward to reading it all.

    Quick question; is there a "members area"? I know there were discussions of possibly having a forum for paid members, but I didn't see any access/links to that in the email I received. Just a link to download the book and 3 videos. Not that that's not enough... just don't want to miss out on anything if I happened to overlook it.

    TIA

      About An Adsense Forum:

      Yes a forum would be great, but the problem with running a forum with
      as many people as we have is a full time job. I know because I have
      several IM friends that run forums and they spend 5-6 hours per day
      moderating and keeping up with them.


      And I am only 1 man, and the 1 man that everyone would expect a reply
      from, not to mention having to control the environment.


      I'd LOVE to do it, trust me, but I do not know of a way without charging
      a fee, and most people do not understand how much work is involved nor
      would they be open to paying for it.

        I'm a newbie at forum moderation but I can learn fast.

        I can help with moderating the forum and can have some time spent on it each day.

        Maybe there are course members who are experienced in running a forum who may also may able to help on this?

          I do appreciate you stepping up to the plate to help.

          However, with a new forum that revolves around my name and my
          course, I would have to take care of it from the start as if it were
          my baby.

          Forums can be helped my moderators in time, but from the start
          and possibly many months to come, I would have to watch over
          every post as if they were gold.

          And that takes time and care, and a dedication to helping with
          replies and answers, on an ongoing basis.

          I know that most of you would consider paying a small fee for
          such a community, but there are still many others online that
          would not appreciate or be willing to invest into a course forum,
          as they do not understand the time, work and risk involved from
          my end.


          I've considered something like $9.95 per month, or a higher one-time
          fee.

          But I also do not want to deal with the headache of people complaining
          that I am charging money. These people feel that the work put into
          a forum each day is something that I should do at no cost.

          I do wish that I had 3-4 hours to spare, for free, every day.

    Hi,

    I got a free copy of this Adsense course in the War room thanx to John's
    offer. I have uploaded 7 sites based on the course info in a matter of 5
    days after going through the course.

    My average earning per site is $4.20 per day per site.

    I have email him and promise to pay for my free copy with my first
    adsense payment from these sites.

    This was truely the best Adsense course I have seen. It is EXTREMELY
    simple and easy, but you have to do some work.

    I do recommend this course to everyone especially the newbies around
    here and anyone else that are stuggling to get some google money.

    There are some things in his course to do that is exactly opposite than all
    the other marketing books tells you.

    One of the greatest marketing tips I got from this course was the way he
    uses article directories.

    Really worth the money if you are willing to do some work.

    I'm able to create 4 (maybe 5) sites in an 8 hours day (fulltime, without
    doing other things)

    If you do decide to get his course, then my advice is "Follow everything
    exactly as he is telling you do".

    I'm think this will work with CPA offers as well if you think out site the box.
    I'm going to test his method out with CPA offers after I have 30 adsense
    sites setup with this method.

    Well done XFactor for creating this product.

          You're asking the million dollar question. A month and a half ago I didn't have a clue about Internet Marketing. The recession gave me the opportunity to delve into this full time.

          In that time I've been all the way from the beginning days looking at the 'get rich quick' sales letters to occasionally finding information that I currently think is really useful after spending a lot of time learning everything I could.

          I spent some (too much) money on what I now know is junk.

          However there were two things that I bought that I feel were worth a lot more than I paid. One was a video course put out by what it feels like is another relative newbie that had some success. ($29).

          The other was John's course. And the funny thing was he gave it all away for free in his forum posts before he condensed it and made the ebook that he has for sale.

          Time will tell if the information is correct, but it 'rings true'. And I'm running with it.

          Newbies like us have a lot to learn I think. Maybe there's an easier way to do this. Even the numbers that John talks about seem 'too good to be true' in some ways. But I think he's had the experience and put in the time and the work so that he 'knows' what works.

          I'd say that if you're serious about giving Internet Marketing a try, then first of all you just have to start. If I would have had John's ebook a month ago, I'd probably have saved a few hundred hours of my time wading through the other useless chaff on the web looking for direction.

          Cheers,

          Mike

      That was a "pre-release" price to order and pay for the course long before it was finished and released.

      It's a steal at it's release price.

    I just bought the course yesterday and am overwhelmed with ideas and excitement. John has done an exceptional job and spelled everything out in a simple-to-follow blueprint. I had actually started reading the thread yesterday and got up to page 9 when I gave that up and decided I had to have the manual (I still plan to finish reading the thread to the end). Paid the full $67 before I saw the post here about it being available in the War Room for free a few days ago (my fault for not visiting regularly enough), but for those asking about a discount, etc., it is well worth the full price.

    Kael41 - how can I get your WP template?

    Also, is anyone using Market Samurai instead of MNF for keyword research? I'm trying to determine how best to interpret the MS search competition analysis to MNF's SOC.

    I would have purchased MNF long ago except I'm on a Mac and hate using parallels, but I may just have to break down and do it anyway, although I'm sure MS returns just as good of information, if only I could interpret it correctly.

    Edited: Sorry, just one more question for MNF users. I see that when one purchases MNF, it comes with a USB "togo" version of MNF to use anywhere. Does this require Administrator access on the PC you want to use it on; is it an .exe file that has to be launched? I'm wondering because I use a Windows PC at work (Mac at home), and it would be great if I could take the USB version to work, but I don't have Administrator access and cannot install software on the PC.

      Hi Susan,

      I'm also using Market Samurai in a way similar to what was taught in this year's 30 Day Challenge. In the 30DC they used it to find low competition/high traffic micro-niches. The difference there was that they then guided people on how to create/test as an affiliate site.

      Using the 30DC methodologies with Market Samurai I'm getting similar niche/market results as John demonstrated with MNF.

      If you don't want to get on the 30DC list you can just to go YouTube and find all the videos there, and there's a checklist in the 30DC Facebook app to help you find what's covered on which days.

      The bottom line is that yes, you can use MS to find the right keywords/niches to use with the rest of John's methods.

      -Roger

      I've been using Market Samurai for 8 months and love it..there is so much information you can get and so many things it can do that most people don't know how to take advantage of it all. Of course anyone can use free methods as well, it will just take a little longer.

        I can understand a person wanting to sell a digital product. I'm really beginning to question the price for digital products sold on the Internet and their real value...I guess it's in the eye of the purchaser.

        Call me the devil's advocate, but if you go to any book store and purchase a hard cover "How to" bound book, it contains a CD and all the tutorials contained with the book, a person may spend $45 to $60 bucks and it contains between 500 and 1000 pages. It's hard to spend $67 bucks on any digital product that has less than 100 pages?

        Are there videos as well and what about updates with new information or trainings?

          Then by all means, please feel free to hop down to your local B&N or other bookstore and buy one of those books.

          Whether a book is printed and bound in leather with gold edges on the paper, a hardback, a paperback, or a .pdf, what is really important is the information that is provided. John's course is a step-by-step blueprint that anyone can follow and achieve a very good income.

          Don't get me wrong, I have also purchased digital products (and bound books) that were not worth their price, whether it be $7 or $197 or more. But this isn't one of them, IMHO. You may not agree, so instead of questioning the price that John has placed on the information that he chooses to share, make your own choice. If you think it is too expensive, don't buy it, but don't try to claim it isn't worth the price when you haven't seen it.

          There are many people who have stated it is worth more than the price John has placed on it, myself included. I also 'missed' my opportunity to buy at $39, and then at $47 and then to get a free copy in the War Room. My fault. After coming late to the party (reading the long thread), I realized I wanted the course, and paid the $67. I do not regret it for a second. John could raise the price easily and people who purchase will still feel like they got more than their money's worth.

            The original lo-o-ong thread is priceless and wa-a-y better than nothing. Both brilliant and generous on Xfactor's part.

            But if you think it's just as good as the course...HUGE mistake.

            Not only does the course contain much more step-by-step detail, it actually incorporates changes by Xfactor from when the original thread began, as a result of his own ongoing testing (such ongoing testing he recommends for us to continue doing as well).

            This is not a "normal" "pretty good" course. This is simplicity itself, with proven results. Don't miss that combination: "simplicity" and "proven". Hard-to-find combination in my experience.

            Comes with a helpful membership/video area. Can't wait for the WP download, Xfactor, although I just booted up XSite Pro Version 1 from an old 2005 download of XSite Pro I had on my computer that I never got around to using (I've been using versions of [free] Mozilla Composer (which I actually like, but not as user-friendly as XSite Pro).

              I have read hours on this topic which John has graciously answered in the forum and helped people with answering them. I don't have a doubt John is a straight shooter and will probably purchase it. I'm just bummed I got in on the tail-end of the bonuses.

          I know it isn't easy at times, but basing the quality of a product solely on the number of pages can be a huge mistake. 1000 pages of fluff and garbage can look impressive, but it is just that...useless fluff. This is not that type of product. Regardless of the number of pages and length of any quality product or book, just one sentence or idea can be all it takes to dramatically change your income.

            I have to agree that this was money VERY well spent, despite the fact that I felt like I had gotten everything I needed for free from the original post. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for the straight scoop on an approach that is uncomplicated, honest and is clearly working very well.

            In fact, think about this. Since we (those of us who have posted positive reviews/comments) aren't "affiliates" and aren't gaining monetarily in any way, shape or form from your purchase, and in fact could even consider new students to be 'competition' (I put that in quotes because I honestly see that there is just far too many opportunities out there to be even slightly concerned about the idea of competition), wouldn't that give even more credence to the praise? I mean if I'm telling you something is the best thing since sliced bread, followed immediately by a link to purchase it so that *I* make money from you, the sure, you have every reason to be skeptical (I would recommend it, in fact ). But telling you honestly that this will be money well spent **IF YOU DO THE WORK** outlined by John, is the God's honest truth in my opinion.

    I think Adsense is an awesome revenue model and make a good bit of money every month from Adsense. Not too mention that Google has never paid me late I always get my check every month

    Also, I would note that I think having a diversification of income streams is important so once you develop a good bit of income from Adsense I would continue to grow that income but also diversify into something like Affiliate Marketing or CPA as an example.

    Could the sites be built on blogger instead of wordpress?
    Are you writing your own content or using prewritten articles from
    directories , or plr, for content?

      Hi,

      I just want to add my comments about the need for a Micro Niche Adsense forum.

      Since Warrior Forum is about to become a paid forum only and I cannot afford it until I start making money online, it means that I will have absolutely no support other than putting in a ticket. I'm sure that John's staff does not want to have to answer every little question I have.

      It is much more helpful to get tips and tricks from other members anyway.

      John, I know you are gun-shy, but just look at how many OTHER people post answers to questions on this forum about your product. I bet that that 99% of the threads that would get posted to an exclusive forum would be answered without your intervention.

      You could always make the disclaimer that you will not be moderating the forum. Even a forum entirely run by members would be better than none.

      I'm very nervous about having no way to get advice once this forum becomes paid-only.

      Also, this is about the first product I bought that did NOT have any kind of support forum that was included in the price.

        The WF is not going paid only. Free members can still post and read the forums.

    If anyone is too skeptical or too financially strapped to buy the ebook right off, I'd suggest just implementing the material in John's original post. Download a free copy of Market Samurai, do the keyword research, find a niche, and build a single site. If you follow the guidelines he laid down in that post, you are almost guaranteed to see some money coming in over the next few weeks or so. Once you taste that blood in the water, you are going to be far less skeptical and want to build more sites. Then, you can either build another site based on what you already know or, if you want, you can spring for the $67 and get John's more in-depth game plan.

    The point is, if you are really wanting to get started on actually making money and not just spending time in forums, just do the research, follow a system, build the site, write some articles, and actually start making money. That was the whole point of John's original post, to help others get started. He then spent a lot of time writing the ebook and making the videos to provide a more formal blueprint, and he asked for some money in return. But if you don't want the book, he gave you plenty of information to get you started. If you don't know how to build a site, then just install a Wordpress blog (it literally takes one click) then download a free adsense-ready theme (which is remarkably easy in the latest version of wordpress), and you are good to start getting some adsense clicks. John's template will probably get more clicks, but I managed to get a decent click rate from some pretty bad templates when I first started, so you can always start with one theme, then easily change templates down the road a bit, once you are established.

    Whatever you do, just stop thinking about doing and start actually doing something. You'll be very happy you did in a few months time.

        Hi XFactor,

        I bought and downloaded the EBook yesterday. I am only about half way through it and you seem to have laid out a solid plan of attack. I look forward to trying to put all this into action and seeing what happens.

        I am a 20 years sales professional who already does 200+ a year but would love to find another way to add to my income and maybe someday replace it. Your plan is very meat and potato that even a Noob like me can follow. I am sure I will email you some questions after I have had some time to digest it, but thanks for sharing your ideas.

      Very good to hear WOlfmmiii! Would you be willing to share some details as far as (roughly) how much and how quickly you're seeing results from your new sites? It's always helpful/inspirational to hear success stories from those who are in front of us.

      I just put 5 sites up this weekend, and I think 4 of them are indexed, so we'll see it/when I start seeing a few clicks. In the meantime, living vicariously through your success (or anyone else who is willing to share their success) is great.

      All the best,

        One question I have about this technique is as follows:
        If you have a niche you are looking at such as treadmills and you get numberous brands that come up as the niche would you make a site for each brand or use each brand as a long tail keyword.

        Thanks to all you experts.:confused:

    So far I've created one "test" site using David's wordpress theme(old one) with great success. However right now I'm stuck because of the glitches involved with the old theme and settings.

    If John and David is here, just wanted to know when/if the installation video for David's new WP theme is available either in the adsense course or by pm/email. I received the new download link for the new theme from David but no instructions yet. Since I'm a noob with wordpress I really need a guide. Thanks a lot!

    To end all questions or troubles with getting a "template" designed for
    members of my course, I've decided to list several additional designers
    in the member download area this week.

    These people are all members of my course and you can then choose
    for yourself to have anyone you want design you a wordpress template,
    XsitePro template, CSS template or plain ole HTML template.

    Thanks for your time.

    Ok I have read John's book over and over several times now and have 2 sites that are ready to go. I was able to reproduce the template pretty darn close and I Like it.

    Now what I'm struggling with is what categories to write articles for. His article says to pick the most popular categories but also ones that your article won't get lost in very fast.

    How do you figure out what categories you should write for?

    BTW John replied to my email with a question I had and I appreciate that support. I'm very excited about this project and as soon as I get the first couple of sites out of the way I'll feel better about the learning curve and start putting more sites up.

      For starters, I've been testing the standard approach to write
      FOR my niches and less articles as well, this will be a course
      update to be posted soon.

      Second, this changes the action plan as well, which will also be

      Third, I will be starting a private forum in about a week so for

          Hey all,

          I put up my 1st site with frontpage, tweaked the style sheet
          to the right color, and created my header using an old head creator
          software I have.

          I added 6 articles, and added 6 articles to EZA, 2 have been approved,
          maybe 2 days later, I'm in the top 10, got 4 page impressions 1 click and made over a $1.00, pretty good start.

          I was a little discouraged at first because in MNF the competition for the exact phrase was 23,000, then a week later I checked it, now it is 110,000
          in quotes,.

          I reran mnf and all the pages had more competition, so I think the se
          made a mistake, but the soc remained the same, below 10.

          Imo consider the soc more than the competition, exact phrase match.

          thanks John this really works

    Thanks for the quick reply John, I'll be looking for the forum. I'm taking a month off from work starting next week and the micro niche sites is one of my main projects during my time off so get cracking on the forum!

    As for the articles, so you are looking at writing about the niche instead of anything else? Also, I'm guessing you need to write all fresh new articles and not submit your long tail articles right?

    question: for the keywords I want to build sites around using this course, I keep running into other sites that are doing this course, too (it's obvious based on the site layout, even down to the colors)... would you still try to make a site and rank it for that keyword, competing against another course member, or would you scratch it and move on? I'm debating... suggestions appreciated. For all the ones I'm finding I think it proves the course works and there are a lot of people doing it.

      Hi digitaldreams..

      I'm sure no expert but I am a little surprised at your comment about running into other sites. I work with a LOT of keyword niches and my experience has been completely the opposite. I've yet to see one other site based on Johns. I will say that I see a lot of Adsense sites that use a fairly similar system/theme. But that is just the nature of the beast.

      I would sure imagine that most of the people that have just started using John's specific system in the last month or so are in the process of working their sites, getting ranked, etc. To accidentally find these sites where many are scattered all over the SERPS is amazing. (I know there were a few that did exact copies way at the start, but they don't seem to be active.)

      Regarding your question about competing with a 'fellow XFactor' site, that's really up to you. I think that there are millions of niches that might be better to target where you know that you won't have a new committed competitor working for the same keyword. But all's fair in love and war, isn't it?

      Good luck on your site.

      Cheers,

      Mike

      Would you want to put the time and effort into finding your keyword, building your site, writing content, submitting articles, seeing it start to climb, then one day seeing a nearly identical site creeping up alongside you? Wouldn't you be just a little annoyed?

      There are soooooo many prime 'untapped' and easy-to-rank keywords to be leveraged. If you run into a marketer who's trying to succeed just as you are, common sense and basic courtesy would say "move on". Not to mention karma. That, and 'parasitic marketing' are the kinds of things that draw buses towards you when you're crossing the street...

      I spent a good part of the last few days hunting down "rankable" keyword phrases in some of the high-payout niches. What I found was, there were too many of them! I had to force myself - literally - to stop registering domains in order to get any work done on what I already have! And these are in the "don't even bother" niches!

      John's course hands you everything you need on a platter. About the only real decisions you have to make are which keywords to go after. Give yourselves a break. With so many viable keywords, thousands upon thousands, put in just a bit more work and pass on the ones that aren't "stupid easy". Move on to the next one. Not only will you save yourself from putting in more effort than necessary, but you'll avoid being run over by a bus...

    so far I've been scratching those off my list, mostly as courtesy even though I know others won't necessarily be so kind to me. But seriously, I'm well over 10 now that I've found, it's a little disheartening and also enlightening. I'll be tracking some of them to see how long they stay with decent positions... almost all are on page 1 after 2 weeks or less.

      Hi digitaldreams,

      Your last few posts have really got me thinking. Could I ask you a couple of questions?

      1. When you say that there are over 10 that you've 'found' does that mean your actively searching for matches to similar wording from the template to find 'XFactor' sites or do you find them when you're looking at high ranking sites when Google-ing your potential keywords?

      2. Regarding the sites being less than two wks old, can you tell me how to tell the age of the site. I know how to see how many 'years' old it is, but is there a way to tell to the week how old it is or how long it's been ranked?

      I've been spending a lot of time working on sites. I'm worried about how 'transparent' things can be if a person has the knowledge.

      Thanks,

      Mike

    Mike, I find them when searching keyword competition in google and looking at the top 20 sites. I'm not searching for similar template wording, mostly because xsitepro uses the same wording for all sites it creates, whether adsense on them or not. Using xsitepro isn't really a negative footprint anymore than Frontpage is.

    I'm just looking up the domains to see when it was purchased. All of them were bought between Aug 31 and today. Some only 7 days ago, brand new. What it's proving to me is that instant ranking is pretty easy, but longevity remains to be seen. It probably has a lot to do with continued link juice, perhaps to do with site growth. Not sure yet.

    Let me add a few things here:

    1) My site layout example is only meant to be used as a guide. So yes, if
    you copy it or use a "template" that many others have, they can find your
    sites.

    This is why I advise creating your own sites, with the basic outlines of my
    example. Not only that, but Google may even consider them MFA if so many
    are found that look alike, even though they are not MFA - they have unique
    content.

    2) Second, regarding seeing other marketers when researching your niches,
    that should actually be a GOOD thing to your mind.

    Why? Because it shows it works and you CAN do this yourself.

    Now if you choose to go after that same keyword, that is your call.

    - John

    I'm not sure where you're getting your 'inspiration' from for these keywords but perhaps one or more other people are using the same source? It's strange that you're finding so many. I did prelim research on over 150 products today and didn't run into anyone using anything that looks like this template.

    I've got LOADS of product types and names to work with. They are all over the place (hence Amazon.com having 4-quad-trillion listings).

    Inspiration was simple:

    1. I just looked at my house for 1 item. I didn't care what it was. Just something I bought and thought at least 1-2 other people on the planet wanted too. Don't kill yourself here. Type in something and look. If you don't find anything in a few minutes, pick something else.

    2. I went into Google and typed in the BRAND first.

    3. As it happens, I was presented with a huge list of items I didn't even know they made.

    From here, I could branch my KWP research, sites, etc into:

    A. A specific product. (The A-1 Wonder Superific T-6000)

    B. A product type that spans brands (grills)

    C. A product type that focuses on one brand (Jmartin's Grills)

    D. Attributes, which can spawn all sorts of stuff (Red iPod, Red TV, Red Sheets). Think about attributes people might want in more than one product type. I don't want to say too much, just think about it.

    I just build 2-3 sites and i got first spot in few weeks without any problems.. and i`m using your theme but my CTR% is maximum 10%...

    On average it`s 7-8%..

    Any ideas here or suggestions on good Wordpress themes with good CTR%

    The "template" isn't the end all or the only issue. Your traffic and how well it's targeted is key.

    You could use the best template known to man, but if you're pulling in the wrong people, it won't matter.

    Are you pulling in buyers or people just doing some research for a future purchase (maybe)?

    If you're traffic is skewed heavily with buyers, you're CTR will go higher. If not, it won't. People will see your ads just fine, but they won't click, because they aren't in a buying frame of mind, not interested in that product because they weren't buyers and you didn't convince them, etc.

      I've also have come across a couple of sites that have got the same template as John recommends - just by searching for my own keyword terms in Google (and NOT searching for text within certain common pages).

          why would google take action against these types of sites,
          as long as the content is good and original

          what about all the sites built by site build it sbi,
          most of those site have adsense, some I'm surprised to see
          have adsense on the home page

          also there are just so many ways to create a template
          2 column, 3 column, nav bar on the right, left, top,
          meaning not so many variations.

          also a MFA site means the content is crappy, not because
          you have adsense in the upper left corner

          what about all those article directories, EZA makes most of its money
          from adsense

          or the articledashboard script

          just make all your content unique, even your privacy policy
          for each site

            You don't have to believe me. I'm in the adsense biz since 8 years and making a healthy
            income from it until now. Everytime something goes into mass, google has taken action.
            98% of those sites will disappear in the near future. Always do the opposite of the mass,
            that is the rule that made me the most money.

                That might happen for those who insist on focusing on a certain theme and doing it in an exact copycat fashion. Should not happen if content is original and good quality.

                  I know. I have the course, the template all info. But most people are lazy, and mass produce
                  these sites. Some are building 10-20 / week (there is no better way to waste your time and
                  money). If you change the template with each site, unique content, unique backlicking etc.
                  then there will be no problem. But only a handful of people will do that.

                    Especially if you put a short sentence between the <h1> heading and the main square advert, it's completely white hat.

                      At the moment it's gray hat. But that can change tomorrow. I'm long enough in this game and

      I totally agree with you that`s why i followed his advice to find the "happy clicking / buying" crowd and using the "product niche" as people mostly are looking for information / something to buy..

      I`m not saying that 1 theme can do miracle work, but XFactor mentioned on a rare basic to get CTR% up to 100+%, i don`t want that but i would like tips / triks or ready made good adsense themes to test, it doesn't hurt to test and see if a theme is better than the current one (got to love wordpress).

      But again getting up to 100% CTR and getting maximum 10% ctr on the same type of site and theme is a big difference.

    Here's the thing about wordpress...it's highly configurable! You don't have to leave footprints unless you want to. Mix up your content descriptions, colors if you want, and page order. Google is not going to ban a site based on the theme nor the platform.what they will ban a site on is the content itself or any kind of suspect backlinking.

    Just a FYI- if you DO lose your adsense account, i'm split testing my google adsense ads against yahoo network ads and i'm making money with both..so just a heads up. You can make money with more than just adsense ads.

    Take it one step further..you've built some sites that are now in the top 10 for serps, now would be a good time to parlay that into having an affiliate website or making money from CPA ads.

    The backbone of what john teaches will provide you the foundation to do a whole LOT more than just adsense. Those who have built up their empire have already realized that, and those who are now just getting into the game WILL realize that.

      I don't want loose my adsense account. It has pulled in seven figures and why should
      someone risk that. Yahoo ads are paying cents, if you compare it to Google. It's not only
      adsense, it's the system. Every system that has been used in extense in the past, was
      Google slapped. The sites are worthless if you don't rank in the top 10 any longer. Don't
      think that you could get rich with affiliate links on these sites. I think you could spend
      your time at better strategies. I like the CB products. Not only a system, but a complete
      business plan how to get to a six or seven figure business per year. But everyone has to
      decide where he spends his 24 h / day. I like to work max. 4-6 h / day and have fun the

        Code,
        Let me assure you, not every system that has been used has been google slapped. I've been at this game almost as long as it's been out and there is ALWAYS a way to do well at it. There are a few people on this site who make 5-6 figures monthly with just adsense alone..and i happen to be one of them. I don't care if you take my word for it, but, ask around. The people who have done well w/ just adsense have learned how to diversify.

        All i'm proposing to anyone else that games this system is that the value basis of these sites exist in what you LEARN in the implementation of this system as well as how to sustain over a period of time. I can pull out this theme, keep about 80% of the existing content on it and transform it into a CPA based site and still make money.

          Absolutely. Similar strategy as I use. But I think you are one of those 2% who have success,
          most don't think outside of the box and just copycat Johns system. John has done an
          awesome Job with his ebook and his help in this forum. I just want to wake up some people,
          to not only copy the system as it is, but be creative and test things out for themself. Use
          Johns strategy and template as a guideline, but add some twists and changes to stand out of
          the mass. I know you are already doing that :-).

            Great conversation everyone and I'd like to chime in and say that
            Code64 does have a point here.

            Like I mentioned before, the site layout that I use is only a small
            portion of making it big with Adsense.

            But the layout should not be used to the "T"

            Change it up, test the waters, try headers, try not using graphics,
            try wrapping your adsense ads, etc. etc. etc.

            Nothing is meant to be copied.

            There are millions of websites online, and they all have the same
            stuff:

            1) Content
            2) Graphics
            3) Links

            But in the end, if you build your sites with quality content and
            be willing to test different looks, you will be fine.

            - John

          Code is spouting nonsense and in my opinion looking for attention here. This is not grey hat unless you are going off on your own tangent and not following the course.

          Google does not go around looking at templates to see if people are using the same colors. Google is interested in content, so just make your content unique. And I would recommend changing up the wording on the "about," "contact," and "privacy policy" pages simply because some people that read the course will search you out, NOT because Google is going to ban your sites.

          I personally did check out other people's sites out of curiosity (because they kept those pages the same wording as John's), and most of the ones I found were ranking on page 1 for their chosen main KW. I didn't delve into them any deeper, I was just interested in seeing if they were doing well.

          So I went ahead and put up some sites, I have 2 finished a week ago and 2 that I'm working on this week. I have a number of other things that I also work on every day so I'm a little behind on this week's two but I should have them finished by Wednesday. Last week's two sites are already earning Adsense, so I'm pleased so far.

          So everyone who is going to jump in and try this project, use the template if you want to, but just use unique content, switch up the wording on the above-mentioned pages, and build your content around something that can be monetized in another way if you suddenly don't have Adsense for some reason. You never know so it's best to stay one step ahead.

          My 2 cents - YMMV.

And I would recommend changing up the wording on the "about," "contact," and "privacy policy" pages simply because some people that read the course will search you out, NOT because Google is going to ban your sites.

            I personally did check out other people's sites out of curiosity (because they kept those pages the same wording as John's), and most of the ones I found were ranking on page 1 for their chosen main KW.

            Another great post and good advice.

            ***It's about getting your site ranked passively, not the actual "template"
            that makes my approach work***

                My point is that no matter how you layout your site, it does no
                good unless you choose the right niches, get the right traffic,
                and hold the rankings for steady income.

                You can have the word's greatest template/layout - that's the
                easy part.

                The hard part is getting it to make you money:

                Targeted Trafic + Backlinks + Ongoing/unique content.

    I didn't even think of using my Yahoo account. I haven't used it in a long time but I still have it. Excellent!

    And you're absolutely right, don't just limit to adsense. You can discretely put affiliate links in there and if you don't overdo it then it should work for you.

    Test test test people!

    John you need to hurry up and get your forum going because I have a couple of ideas to test and I'd be more than happy to talk about them with others that have purchased your book.

    fyi I just put in the yahoo code instead of adsense and it pulled up great ads

    also remember that if you use both google and yahoo on the same page, that they both can't have the same format per Google's TOS.

    Good to see lots of conversation going on about this project- I ahve fubled around only long enough, but not stayied long enough in any project to make any big money- i think i have found this to be the best fit- but take it to another level- a business level- find people to do quality work for you- duplicate yourself rather than just the small biz model(if it has to be its up to me)

    Take a long term vies, as john site- "Relying on Google traffic is dangerous" (or words to that effect)

    New content will always rank quickly- then it will settle down, so expect some "ups and downs"..... Good luck and puff forward with momentum (donald trump)

    Was there ever an answer as to whether there is a simple wordpress theme available which mimics the html template ?

      Simon - Check the log-in area tomorrow.

      I'll be posting about 10 different designers/template creators inside
      the log-in area that you can contact and choose to work with on this.

      All of them are customers of my course (insiders only) so they will
      know how to help.

      Note: I do recommend you vary your template and make it different.

        Hi John

        I'll check tommorow but I'm not after a template, (html) I'm after a Wordpress (Theme) which will mirror what you use as a template.

        At one point there was discussion of it being done, but I lost track of what actually happened.

          Theme/template/layout - I meant them all.

        Wow, what a great ebook full of information it's like a treasure.

        I've just finished the ebook and am going to start the 1st day of the 7 day action plan, while i'm almost finished with this i'm was going to start day 2, but then rememberd that i haven't purchased any software to create simple websites.

        But, my question is if you also give templates to members to use as well? Or do we have to create our own ones with Xsitepro? I was reading the thread and saw that a member was offering free ready made for this great ebook? or am i mistaken?

        thanks,

      The template given is purely a guide to help to maximise CTRs; it's not meant to be copied exactly or anything, hence why there's no ready-made one available.

      There is a WordPress theme around (which is independent of John's course), but I don't know much about that sorry (I hand code all my websites so don't use WP or anything)

    I decided to not go with wordpress either. I hand coded my first 2 sites just about like John's but it's mainly to get over the learning curve. The thing about wp is that I didn't want to worry about using that many databases as I plan on doing many sites. Wordpress is very easy to setup but once you have a template then it's even easier and more so to make tweaks to change it up.

    I did go with host gator and have to say I'm very pleased. I have two huge sites that are on their own servers with another company but went with host gator to try them out. The names resolved fast and the sites are easy to setup. I don't think anybody would be not impressed.

    i also decided to skip wordpress for similar reasons. what I'd like though is a php version of the template because I plan on having sub-pages and I HATE having to go in and manually update each html page any time I change anything. Anyone have (or want to create - paid) a quick php version? I just need the basic structure. I'll handle the colors, fonts, links, etc.

    BTW, I started using 1&1 on his recommenation as well because I love that private domains are included. I really don't want to create this website empire and have every site be easily found with a simple search. The initial setup sucked and took 2 days but now that I'm up and running it's quick and easy.

    Depending how you work, WordPress for a site that's only going to have 4-10 KWP pages is pretty much a waste of time.

    If you are using WP, make sure you your $$ KWP pages/posts are always linked from the home page.

    It's easy to knock out a site a day if you desire.

      I agree with Xfactor that XSitePro is a great choice for building the sites. WP is really an overkill. My ISP locked out my sites because I had 20 WP AdSense sites running and I was taking 60% of the CPU resources. The same sites with XSitePro take far less disk space and far less bandwidth. I've built hundreds of sites by hand but after learning XSitePro I won't do that again.

    Hi Klingon,

    It's good to read someone honestly saying that success is going to take some real work. That's exactly what I'm finding, although not with adsense.

      John,
      I had sent you an email to your new email address, but didn't hear back so I assume yu did not receive. Two questions:
      1). WHY the added hyperlink Adsense in the right column?
      2). Have you discovered certain markets more "Adsesne active" or more "Adsense trigger happy" ? I wonder if any tools have incorporated such data yet?
