A Business Model That Is Working For ME!

8 replies
Hi All,

I can vouch for the popularity of blogging about big sporting events. I have an autoblog i set up covering the subject of the 2010 World Cup and my adsense earnings from May 2010 alone from this site with minimal SEO work is £168 (approx. $250).

Lifetime earnings from this blog since its inception in Dec 2009 is £500 (approx. $750).

This month to date it is sitting at £75 ($120) and we are only a quarter through the month. I also earn quite well on Amazon from these types of sites. Yikes, did i give a business model away here?!?!

Needless to say i cover as many sporting events as i can and my World Cup 2014 is already prepped ready to go lol!

Just remember that this is all set up as an autoblog with minimal SEO work, approx. 30 minutes at its inception and nothing since. It seems that the popularity of the event adds drive to the site, allowing it to gain Google ranking seemingly on the surge of popularity for the event itself. My World Cup site is proof of this...as are others i have.

I hope this helps some Warriors trying to make their first buck(s) online.

Best wishes,

Michael

    Michael- I'm intrigued by how simple your model is and yet seemingly effective.

    You said you use minimal SEO. Curious, how minimal if you don't mind sharing, are you doing any additional marketing or back linking to the site.

    Sounds like "Build it and they will come"

    Is it purely the volume of interest in the topic that is getting you this activity?

    I'd believe you are doing something else very correctly to get this interest. How many page views daily ?

    Best Regards,

      Hi,

      As i said i do a little SEO both on and off page, nothing else. The popularity of the event gives it the drive to succeed. Please find my stats for the site in question:

  • So basically you create dummy blogs about major sports events, SEO them up, toss Adsense on them and pre-populate them with automated content.

    Did I get it right?

    I've seen sites for sale based on this concept but always assumed there was some magic ingredient needed, like 1000's of backlinks to make money ... Well done !

    Believe me my friend, one post is added on a daily basis + my on and off page SEO and i get a load of traffic. It really does, in my opinion, count on the chosen topic. Popularity does add to the SEO 'milkshake' as the stats show!

    Thanks for contributing,

      wow that's very impressive, I just setup an autoblog myself - but I'm using it too promote my sales pages and squeeze pages, but just out of curiosity, the money that you earned from the auto-blog, was that just with adsense or were you using other sources of revenue as well?

        The revenue quoted was for adsense only. I have also made revenue from Amazon.
