150+ websites making $6-$100 per day. You Can Do This Too. My Online Business Strategy

by gpower2 546 replies
I have been marketing online for over 3 years now quite successfully. I am also a much sought after IM consultant.

The #1 question I get from prospective clients is, "What methods would you teach me in order to make money online?", or something of that nature.

Although I teach several methods to generate different income streams, my favorite method involves simple website creation using WordPress in conjunction with affiliate marketing to monetize.

My methods aren't anything new per se, but over the last several years I have perfected it in such a way as to maximize the benefits regarding organic search engine traffic and high conversions.

It's not uncommon for my sites to get 5000+ hits per month! And it's all free traffic!

I currently have 150+ websites that are making anywhere from $6 to $100 per day, I have about 4 that do $100 a day, the rest are all over the board.

Anyway... I wanted to share my basic business model here...

First and most importantly, the general idea is to produce a mini-authority website of 20+ pages that is optimized for 20+ keywords (including your main page and domain name keyword.)

The websites will have the pages listed on the left hand side of the site and all will link to internal pages. Each of the pages are, in and of themselves, researched keywords that will rank on the first page of the search engines and each garnish it's own share of organic traffic.

First you find a niche.

Then you start doing the keyword research.

The main keyword (for the main page as well as your domain name) needs to be relatively general.

Example:

Niche - Tattoos

Main Page (and domain name) Keyword - Masculine Tattoos

Internal Pages "Alternate Keywords" (listed on the left hand side of the website) - Tribal Arm Tattoos, Back Tattoos, Rib Tattoos, etc.

Using your favorite keyword research tool, the keywords MUST have at least 800 searches per month (exact match) and have manageable competition within the search engines. Let's just say 30,000 results or less (in Google) when searched for in quotes.

I build websites using WordPress (Wordpress.org.) I do this because quite simply, it's easier than building a static web page and it's much simpler to teach as well as implement.

When I build a site, I use a theme that has a left column sidebar and set it up to look like a regular website as opposed to a blog. For example, I take out page tabs, any unnecessary widgets, etc.

I then create a page to use as my main page (utilizing an already researched keyword that I will also use as my domain name.)

I go into the dashboard of the blog and under "Settings", I choose "Reading." Then I pick the page I just created to be a "static page" and my front page.

This allows a single post or page to be displayed as opposed to many posts like a blog has.

As you find your keywords, you will then create pages that will be clickable links using anchor text HTML within text widgets to be placed in the left sidebar of the site.

Once you create your site, you should have a very clean and basic website that has 20+ pages of content, that is linked to with keyword links on the left hand side of the page that are visible to your visitor no matter what page they happen to be visiting on your site.

All my websites are ranked #1 through #5 for all their target keywords (pages included.) 85%+ of my traffic comes directly from Google. The rest comes from people and or online entities who have linked to my sites.

My Website Qualities:

* They all target 5-10 different products per site.

* I recommend both informational products (ex: ClickBank products), and physical products (ex: Amazon, E-bay.) There are pros and cons for each. Informational products require more of a pre-sell, so in order to be more persuasive, your content needs to be at least 500 to 750 words per page. Physical products (tangible items) are great because you don't have to say as much and the competition is usually more manageable.

In building these sites, my goal is to be #1 in Google. In fact the power of this system is that all of the pages within your site have the ability to be #1 in Google, so you can only imagine what type of traffic and conversions that brings with it.

*Note - When done properly, 10% or more of your pages will rank on the first page of Google without you doing anything extra at all. I have found however, to get to #1 for everything, backlinking is key.

In the beginning, I wrote all of the content for my sites, and my backlinking (if needed.) At this point, I outsource almost all of my work in order to spend more time driving my businesses forward.

My online business strategy is an awesome business model that really works (To the tune of six figures annually for me.)

One great thing about this model, is that for the cost of one domain name (usually about $10 per year), and the cost of hosting (roughly $14 per month), you can set this business up.

*Note - Get a hosting company that allows unlimited add-on domains so that you can build more sites by just buying more domain names only.

Unless you pay for outsourcing, those are your only costs besides your time investment.

The sky is the limit!

As time permits, I will respond to any questions you post to this thread.

      Thanks for the detailed information. One should really sit back and absorb some of the points you have mentioned.

      Re: Pages as front static page, does it matter for Search Engines if the main page of the website or blog do not get fresh contents frequently. Does it affect the crawl rate?

        Gabquotes You might want to give MOBS a try then! You may be doing things with your 4 sites that you don't have to, or counterproductive. Therefore, spending way more time on your 4 sites than you need to. And those efforts aren't helping any. I don't know your personal situation with your sites but that is just my assumption from what you are saying. Hope this didn't come across the wrong way. I can tell you I felt the same way once, doing so much work and not getting very far. But Gary and Loz, teach you in the MOBS forum, how to stop doing the things that are counter productive, wasting your time, and focus ONLY on the steps that are the MOST effective and least time consuming. You get way more bang for your buck.

          All pages have their own content written around their own keyword. You can write reviews, stories, history around the keyword, etc.

          Each page will have anchor text links going to the particular product you are recommending on that page.

          I am a HUGE advocate of building your list(s), so yes I usually include an opt-in box, used in a text widget, within my left sidebar somewhere. Might as well take advantage of all of the traffic you're getting, right?

          I honestly use the free Google Adwords Keyword Tool exclusively. There are many tools out there. I have heard a lot of good things about Market Samurai.

          Thank you. The "figures" you refer to denote the actual number places in a monetary value. Ex: 5 figures could be $10,000, $30,000, $50,000, etc. While 6 figures might be $100,000, $500,000, etc. Understand?

      $1 per day is great, especially if you are a newbie.

      $1 per day doesn't sound like a lot, but once you compile 200 sites, you are making $200 per day, that's $73,000/year which is well above the average median yearly income of a US household ($49,700).

        So true, many people just don't realize the power this gives them to quickly scale up their income. If you can develop a system for building a $1/day website efficiently and quickly, then it's just a simple matter of replicating the system and doing more work yourself and/or outsourcing it to multiply your income many times over!

        Great if this really works, we run a very similar system but typically our intent is to use the affiliate products (mostly info products unless the niche is an obvious candidate for physical products, then we run those as well)...instead of the 150- site approach we may test 40-50 and find our top 10-15 which we then turn into $15+K sites each year by then building out the content, backlinks and product offerings.

        What I find hard to understand about your system is how you keep the pages that you get to rank in top 10 in those positions for any length of time without continuing to develop content (above the initial 20-pages) or continue to mine for backlinks? Sounds fishy to me since pretty much any page that is ranked in the top 10 will eventually (sometimes weeks, sometimes months) drop out as it gets replaced with competitive pages unless. That means the site will sort of go through a curve - get indexed fast, get ranked within a month, stay there for a couple months and then slowly fade down where traffic is not cut off, but certainly decreases?

        Cheers,

        Jeff

          Nothing fishy at all, this is the sensible way to do it. Wordpress is great for building sites quickly but I find if you use pages which are static as opposed to posts which are forever changing you get longevity in the SERPS.
          The first website I build about 5years ago using XsitePro has held positions 1 -10 in Google, Yahoo and other SE for past 3-4 years, I talking about multiple keywords for just the front page. Little of the content has changed in that time except I converted it to wordPress; I have not added any content in past 12 months. It did drop from PR4 to PR2 (but who cares?). from time to time I may add the odd backlink here and there but it has maintained its position for the main keyword ahead of skype.com and about.com I might add, how many backlinks do you think they have?

          Each month I'm reached by over 1500 different keywords and it's averaging 500+ visitors per day (95% unique) and it's not going away. So it is not true to say they ALWAYS drop out of the SERPS or lose traffic after a few weeks/month, if its done right it will last. Sounds to me like gpower2 is doing it the right way

            The great thing about Wordpress is that you can easily make the home page a static one (as opposed to a blog), and it's as simple as clicking a few items in the administration panel to get this accomplished.

            I follow a similar system in that I utilize static pages instead of the blogs that many people prefer. For some reason I've always enjoyed the standard html static page instead of having to deal with the many different features associated with a WP Blog setup.

            Most of that is due to my knowledge of html and my lack of knowledge in regards to blogs. I haven't seen any evidence that using this method has hurt income production. Of course, I also can't say that I'm leaving money on the table by not utilizing blogs.

        Fred, too long winded of a method bud...

        To O.P that fred replied to...

        Go into your WP, use default theme (will work ok, you can customize it later)... hit the widget section... drag the HTML widget over to the sidebar...

        create new page, set it to be presented as the main index page.

        Then add hyper links with your keywords that go to each PAGE (notice i didnt say POST)... and you will get a similar feel of what Gary does

        Hope this helps

      jbsmith - Yes, it absolutely works. The pages that rank on the first page typically stay there because the keyword you researched has very manageable competition in the first place.

      At times, a page may slip a bit, and then you just backlink a little until it gets back to where it needs to be.

      Works like a charm.

          Thank you.

          It's important to note, that most of these methods are not new per se, but they work.

          We tend to over complicate the process of earning money online. Most of us have the necessary information required to be successful, but often over think the process.

          Focus, commit 100%, take action, and DON'T give up!

          It's a sure fire way to make it, online or off.

      @rolltide - Nothing special. Traditional social bookmarking (Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, etc), blog commenting, article submitting, you know the basic stuff.

      *Note* - When I create my websites, let's say it's a 30 page site, I will typically have 5+ pages rank on the first page of Google (and stay there) WITHOUT me doing any backlinking at all. The backlinking comes into play when you have pages internal pages on your site not get to page one. Then, and only then will I backlink the pages, thereby maximizing my results.

      I also, will backlink to get to the #1 position when necessary to get the lions share of the organic traffic.

      As mentioned above, at this point, I outsource all of my backlinking. In fact, I use a few Warriors to do most of my work.

    Awesome post. A couple questions if you don't mind. Are your 20 pages of content unique?

    Do you add all 20 pages at once or 1 page a day over the next few weeks?

    Do you use any type of auto posting software or recommend one?

    How long does it take your site to start ranking on first page of Google?

    Do you use any keyword software like Market Samurai?

    Thanks for the awesome post, I learned a lot and have been looking for an easy to follow method.

      @giseo - some of the main site URLs (main page and/or domain page), get to #1 on their own merit. Mostly from the support of the internal pages.

      Also some of the pages get to #1 without me doing anything at all based on solid on page SEO methods.

      If not, as mentioned above, I do basic backlinking to get the pages to the top poisitions within Google.

      @smartsites:

      I have students that have created 30+ page M.O.B.S. sites in one day. I tend to be a bit slower and usually take a few days to build a site. Haven't had any issues in ranking either way.

      I manually post.

      Ranking time is not set in stone. I have had pages rank on the first page in days, and also have had pages take a couple of months. After creating a site and waiting for your pages to rank, build more!

      I am a big believer in using free tools. I use the Google Adwords Keyword Tool exclusively. It's great and most people just don't know how to use it properly. Most paid keyword tools are populated with the same Data.

      You're welcome

Sounds fishy to me since pretty much any page that is ranked in the top 10 will eventually (sometimes weeks, sometimes months) drop out as it gets replaced with competitive pages unless. That means the site will sort of go through a curve - get indexed fast, get ranked within a month, stay there for a couple months and then slowly fade down where traffic is not cut off, but certainly decreases?


        Cheers,

        From my own experience I can tell you this does work. In fact I make this work with only 5 page sites. I can get 24 hour indexing, 2 to a few days google page 1. Some backlinking to push it to the top 3 and then just leave it. I have sites that have been untouched for over a year and retain their top ranking.

        Congratulations that is excellent! You have already surpassed 95% of all would be marketers and have the basis for a full time business. $1 a day/$30 month- 150 sites $4500 a month. That is enough for most people to quite their day job. Not all internet businesses need to clever, cool, complicated, fashionable, cutting edge or have a fancy name with any synonym for "loads of quick cash" in it
        . BTW with improved keyword research it's not that hard to make that $10 a day.


        gpower2, this might not actually be a relevant question depending on how specific the keywords you target are, but do you ever have any issues with copyright infringement on very niche specific domain names?
        You should avoid trade marks and brand names in your domains. Some people do it and get away with it but many don't. I teach this stuff and I always recommend avoiding copyright problems. I have a recent real life example where a student created a web site with the name of a global toy manufacturer in it. He duly put the site on Google page 1 at which point he received communication from the company demanding the hand over his website. I don't know the actual legalities but he did end up giving his website away.


        So be warned

        Hi,

        Thanks for the great insight!
        By "using it properly" what do you mean exactly? I've been using it too for a while now, I know how it works, can choose keywords and can do keyword research. But I wouldn't say I'm an expert. I know it is not a rocket science if one knows the general and exact rules (which are not shared usually. ). Can you give us a general rule of thumb how this works? You mentioned that a long tail should have at least 800 exact monthly searches. That's fine.

        Do you think that the Competition column can give you a clue as to a keyword is worth to pursue or not? Sometimes I found that the Competiton bar was "almost full" and wasn't that hard to rank 1st page in Google.

        And things like that. I'm pretty sure many would appreciate a little howto guide regarding this topic. If you have time of course. Thanks in advance!

              Gloria, Gloria, Gloria.. Of course it's work. Have you ever attained anything in life, worth having, without work? If it was easy we would all be millionaires, right?

              If you are a newbie (or if you just can't afford it) , I don't recommend outsourcing. This method is completely doable for free (aside from domain and hosting costs.) That's how I started out. Once you start to make some money, then you can start to invest in your business (outsourcing, etc.), to leverage it up.

                Gloria, may I suggest service trading, or bartering? Whatever it is you are doing or good at can be traded for something someone else is doing. Like my site says, "Everybody's an Expert at Something". This can help you out several ways.

                * You get your quality content without cost.
                * You can also negotiate a backlink here.
                * and you build another business relationship that'll help you further down the road.

                Hope this helps.

          Hi btzr,

          Regarding the use of the Google Adwords Keyword Tool (GAKT):

          I don't use the competition column at all. I use the basics. Results in Google (in quotes) needs too be 30,000 websites or less. You can use the allintitle: query (ex: allintitle: "your keyword"), withing Google to further search for your competition based on what websites are using that particular keyword within their title tag. It gets more specific this way. I like to see that number at 10,000 results or less.

          I pay attention to the Global and Local monthly search columns, I use "exact" match only, I add the estimated average CPC column, to get an idea about what people might be paying for a keyword that I am researching. I like to see this number at $1.00 or better. *Note - If all the other criteria are o.k., and if this column is not better than a $1.00, it is not a deal killer. I use it for insight primarily.

          I also use the trend column (the bar graph.) I like to see this column fairly consistent across the board. This lets me know that my keyword will continue to deliver traffic long term.

          Hope this helps,

          Gary

          Some pages won't need backlinks at all.

          Others need some but it is impossible to say. Niches and competition will be different for every topic. BEFORE you create your site(s), you will have done your due diligence, so the amount of backlinking you will have to do overall will be minimal.

        Hey everyone. gpower2 is right about this. Don't use the free services. They can and will shut you down. A friend of mine recently lost his website because Blogspot shut it down with no warning. It was full of completely original material and there was definitely no blackhat or spam involved. We don't know why the site was shut down. My friend lost months of work.

        So, take gpower2's advice and only use domains that you own. If you use subdomains, then you can run hundreds of mini-sites for the price of one. Very cost effective.

      For physical products, reviews work well, along with customer testimonials, product benefits, etc. Not much in the way of pre-selling needed.

      I can't place his link here, but there is an article/content writer here on the Warrior forum by the name of Ed, that does a great job. Tell him Gary Gregory sent you and he will give you the V.I.P. treatment.

      You can build 20 or more websites for 20 different keywords (I have done this too), however, I prefer my method for several reasons:

      1. You don't have to buy 20 different domains, saving you about $200

      2. The way I build my sites, the keywords aren't considered stuffed. Quite the contrary. Each and every page (including the main page), is optimized for only one keyword. In fact, there are also LSI keywords within each page to attract even more visitors to your website(s) over time.

      3. Google Loves content. When they spider your site, you are rewarded for having more content.

      4. *Most Important* - You're visitors stay on your site(s) longer. Sure they may come into your site via one of your pages, but when they get there, there is so much more for them to see, they wind up perusing your site for much longer. In this game, the longer your visitors stay on your site, the more likely they are to click through to whatever you are recommending, thus the more likely you are to get paid.

        Also, the longer a visitor stays on your site, the higher your site will be ranked by google. Very hard to achieve this with a one page site.

        Correct, because you can create it on sub-domains.
        When I create a site I don't usually add ads initially
        but right after G crawled it and I intend not to make
        my site looks like an MFA.

      From doing the tutorials on Market Samurai and considering he is going for low comp keywords I would guess it´s to add traffic to the one site.

      If his main keyword showed, say 80 searches per day and he had 19 alternate elated keywords pulling 10 searches a day each he would be about tripling visitor counts rather than dilute the traffic all over the place.

      Then again I could be looking at it the wrong way, I´m just on tutorial phase with MS

      without following a methods that's totally new,
      there's no secret and there's no magic bullet.

      Simple.

      You don't need them. You need a method that's
      proven to work and follow it. Granted there may be
      new ways of implementing the method, but the

        Thanks for that

        I always compare it to buying a gym membership and expecting to get results just by having the membership.

        Any legitimate business opportunity (online or off) requires work.

        Let's put this in perspective. I have owned several off line businesses as well. In the offline world, it is not uncommon for you to invest 20, 30, $100,000 initially, then spend thousands more monthly to advertise, paying staff, etc. Only to understand that it will most likely take you a couple of years (at least), to show any profit at all.

        Yet, when people look to make money online, not only are they not willing to do the work, but they are upset when there are no results after putting in a few weeks of work! I am speaking in general terms. Not everyone is like this, although I can tell you it happens more often then I would like to see.

        If more people understood going into it (an online business) that you get out what you put in, it would be much better for everyone.

        This system works guys, plain and simple. Follow the steps outlined within this thread, commit to it, work the plan, don't get distracted, DON'T give up, and you WILL make money with it, period!

        Cool thread. Very decent job.

        A little while ago today, I replied to a thread in Warrior Forum on what is overlooked in IM. What you do definitely covers some of the many things grossly overlooked in IM.

        And yes, I would go for a 100-page site any day rather than a single-keyword site. Where's your leverage in a single-keyword site? God !!

        Let me cite an example of one of the sites Sudeshna and I own - and no, this is NOT to promote it but to set an example of how big a site can be and how valuable it can become - WebLiterature - Free Digital Online Literature Library - it has been discussed elsewhere in Warrior Forum also (I believe in one of Kneb Knebiah's thread, in which I had referred to it in a very interesting discussion that Kneb had - probably in the War Room - don't exactly remember where).

        Examine carefully and you shall see how it has gained some edu and gov links in time. And I am NOT talking about link spamming here - I am talking about editorial links coming from Gov and Universities. Last year (2009) it was discussed as one of the 49 websites in a leading university for websites of the year - agreed that they talked about the poor HTML deisgn (it was manually HTML-coded by me and was my first ever website and yes the design stinks) but the next site that was discussed was MySpace.com and an example of good websitte was Google.com.

        I hope you see the exact league that I am talking about?

        Now, why bring the topic up here? Because, while I have been idle on doing SEO on the inner pages of it, I did try to work on one of its pages on-and-off. It was super-competitive, but with time and a little (not much) effort it has come up to #10-#11 (toggles) in Google.com. The exact searches for this term used to show 6.73K per month in the older Google Adwords tool and shows up a little more than 100K now. It is a single-word keyword. The top-9 are all PR-5 or higher sites (including multiple PR-9 and PR-8 sites targeting the same keyword for up to the last 10 years, and some are Wikipedia and IMDB).

        What are some other examples? Well, did you check how many backlinks the typical Amazon or Nextag inner page has, when they rank on the first page? Did you see how much content does Nextag have to rank?

        The authority of the sites matter. And to leverage the authority, I would build a great umbrella site of 20 or 200 pages rather than a single-page website.

        This was just one of many reasons that I liked the approach of the OP.

    Just wanted to add something that may be getting missed here. These really aren't mini sites, but authority sites instead. Once you start building a site with 20-30 pages, you start ranking for your new keywords quite easily assuming you've got a good amount of backlinks to your domain.

    Another thing to add for those that have followed the xfactor method. John tries to sell you on product based sites, but I've found other types that work better such as health related and emotional related sites.

    Just my 2 cents.

    It looks like you have a similar business model to "LMC" here. Seems like his sites may be more focused on a specific product, and your sites have multiple products based on a more general niche.

    Thank you for sharing. I am just getting started in a similar business to you and LMC. I've done a lot of my own article writing, but I'm starting to outsource it now because writing articles is just too time consuming.

      gpower2,

      This is great information. Thanks so much. I will need to reread it a few times I'm sure.

      One thing I'm finding hard to get my head around. When you mention build 20+ pages or create a static home page are you specifically talking about pages or could we use posts as well. Do you feel there is a difference to the search engines or our SEO value?

      Thanks for replying if you get a chance.

      Wow... That's a lot of websites! I was also thinking about this kind of strategy, long before I stumbled on your post. Hundreds of websites each earning a few dollars a day will add up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars per day. So my strategy will be like this:

      1. Buy a decent web hosting that allows multiple websites (add-on domains). I have a shared web hosting account of up to 50 add-on domains. If I consume all the add-on domains, I'll get another account.
      2. Do some research on what's selling like hotcakes on the Internet. Compile a list of relevant keywords with high commerciality and low competition.
      3. Buy domain names related to the main keywords I want to target.
      4. Create websites using WordPress.
      5. Post content using articles I create myself, outsource from others, or spun from other articles.
      6. Update from time to time. Concentrate my SEO efforts on just a few websites and ignore the rest.

      Do you think this type of strategy will work?

        It surely can work and autobloggers do it all the time.

        However, another approach is less websites and more keywords for each. With this method you can enjoy many benefits. One of the main ones is it keeps it simple. You have less websites to drive traffic to, so you can focus your energies on a few. In addition, as you add pages of content for different keywords, you will get found by Google for all kinds of other keywords. Building supersites instead of smaller sites. Just a thought.

        Here is another idea, that Paula and Wanda (the 10k a month Amazon bloggers) shared in one of their posts. For many sites just certain pages are the money pages. When I look at one of my sites for example, one page has made me quite a bit, where the other pages have made me some. So as you build out your sites, keep that in mind. Instead of trying to rank whole sites focus on the pages that are showing promise within those sites.

      GPower, let's deal in a realistic way with the TIME INVESTMENT you have mentioned...if you wouldn't mind...

      It's true to say that $24 is the startup cost of the domain and hosting. But what about the time involved? In your opinion, what is a REALISTIC timeframe for getting a site to bring in $2 per day ($0.1 per article per day according to your method)?

      For example, let's suppose you are doing it all yourself, you don't want anyone else involved, or simply you don't know anything about outsourcing, or hiring employees. You want to test it out for yourself.

      Presuming you know how to find the keywords, get set up, write content and so on, plus do the neccessary things to promote the site (which you haven't shared yet), in your judgment, how long do you assign in man-hours to the building and promotion of the site.

      For the avoidance of doubt (I sound like an attorney now!!), a simple calculation based on likening the site to a "perpetuity" - i.e. that it will bring in $1 forever and ever, considering that you can invest money in property or the stock market at about 12% annually, makes a single site worth, according to the "Discounted Cash Flow Formula for Perpetuities":

      365/0.12 = $3,041

      $3,041 is the so-called "present value" of a site which brings in $1 per day forever. (No one needs to know this jargon, but it is to illustrate a point).

      For a $2 per day site, the so-called "Present Value" based on the discounted cash-flow formula for a perpetuity is

      $6,083

      In other words, this is what someone (an investor) should be willing to pay for one of these $1 or $2 sites if you sell it on flippa for example. It also assumes that the cash-flow of $1 is forever and the rate of 12% is the stock market or property return rate forever...

      I'm getting carried away here. Back to the point in hand...

      For a $6 site (you claim your weakest site makes $6 per day), I roughly value this site at $18,250 again, provided it pays $6 FOREVER per day.

      This would be a "smart" price to sell the site, and also to buy the site. It is a fair price (in my opinion)...IF IT IS ASSUMED IT WILL PAY $6 DAILY FOREVER.

      NOTE: If it is only for 2 years say that the site will pay either $1; $2 or $6 per day, the valuations are as follows (using a very high 12% rate - the valuations would actually be a lot MORE using Bond rates at 3.5%)...

      $1 site values at $690.89 if it brings that $1 per day for 2 years, then nothing forever and assuming you can get a 12% return from other investments.

      $2 site values at $1381.78 if it brings that $2 per day for 2 years, then nothing forever and assuming you can get a 12% return from alternative investments.

      $6 site values at $2072.67 if it brings that $6 per day for 2 years, then nothing forever and assuming you can get a 12% return from other investments.

      I want to take the more conservative valuations as estimates for what each site is worth.

      So, can you explain to me, based on those figures, is this a good investment of TIME?

      For example, would you say, based on an alternative of working in "McDonald's", that $2072.67 is a fair reflection of the time put in to an average $6 per day site?

      In other words, would you say that you have done about 1 months work at 37.5 per week (150 hours) on the site to get it to $6 per day which would be the equivalent of paying someone about $69 per day for a 30 day month to work on the site.

      I know this paradigm doesn't take into account "once you've done it once, you can build a MASSIVE, PASSIVE income," but it would be useful to get your answers on this slightly technical point. It also assumes everybody's alternative is working in McDonald's for $69 per day.

      To clarify, if you are honest, would you say that you have done more or less than 150 hours of single-handed work on a $6/day site. If so, the model would seem reasonable to me from a very simplified financial analysis perspective...

      Summary of questions. Basically there are two questions:

      = In your opinion, what is a REALISTIC timeframe for getting a site to bring in $2 per day ($0.1 per article per day according to your method)?

      = Based on the "fact" that a single $6 per day (theoretically forever) site could be worth $2k even paying someone for a full month (at $2k) to build a single site (forget the scaling for now) would be an OK investment.

      Let me know your thoughts/ideas on this. Thanks for your post also! This is a topic that greatly interests me (scaling niche revenue sites). It seems like a NO BRAINER to get even ONE of these sites going...

      If you can give an estimation of the exact number of hours required to build the site PLUS the investment into your "formula", I can value the sites better, thanks.

        It's great to read this thread.

        I'm a total newbie and i plan to do something like your business strategy discussed here before i read this thread.

        I'm thinking to use Market Samurai or Keyword Discovery, but i think that i could follow you using Google AdWords Keyword Tool, the free one from Google .

        Could you please tell me how to use that free tool comprehensively?

        I also want to know what registrars that you use?
        Is it GoDaddy or NameCheap?

        And what another tools do you use?
        Copyscape or DupeFree Pro maybe?
        Or any other?

        Btw, i have subscribe to your M. O. B. S

        Thank you very much for sharing such a tips, Gary.

          If you read further back in the thread, Gary gives a pretty good outline of how he uses GAKT.

          Gary uses NameCheap, as do I and probably the majority of other Internet Marketers. GoDaddy can seduce you with their initial cheap prices to suck you in, but you'll get hit by them with renewals.

          Also GD has the most awful interfaces, chock block with ads and upsells. Namecheap is a good, clean, simple design (IMHO)

            GoDaddy works well if you use coupons. I used to use 1&1, namecheap, and name.com, but I found that using coupons with GoDaddy is least expensive overall.
            I also use valuedrops.com for expired domains that have names related to a niche that I want to develop a site in.
            fatwallet.com/forums/hotdeals lists coupons daily.
            I pay as little as 1.99-7.89 for a domain name this way. I also use the coupon codes for renewals and pay 30-50% less. So using GoDaddy is far less expensive for now.

            If anyone is serious about doing this there are ways to clone WP sites that can save a lot of time. You set up a WP site with all of the features that you want and then clone it over and over again, just changing the theme and then adding your content.

            You can do this for free by learning the the method. Just Google it.

              I avoid GoDaddy like the plague, have read so many bad things about them (just do a search in Google) and my experiences when first searching for domains left me very wary of ever using them, even to check domain availability.

              I use Namecheap for most registrations now and also 1&1 in the UK, if registering .co.uk domains.

      Lots of excellent information here. It is important to emphasize the fundamentals when you first get into the IM game. Michael Jordan still shot free throws every day and probably still does.

      However, I think one of the biggest problems is the ability to find a profitable product to sell in a niche that isn't dominated by other savvy marketers. This was certainly true in my case. While I think SEO and organic traffic is wonderful, most of us have problems getting around the beginning question of: "What do I sell?"

      I think it was great to remind people that physical products do offer a chance that many IMers tend to forget about. Maybe I am wrong, but I think that people still pull out the plastic for physical products more than digital ones.

      I love the fact that the site mentioned above (classic lit.) is hand coded by a non-graphic designer. I think it adds authenticity and this is how more sites online should be. Ironically, in terms of sales, I have got a considerably better result from the sites which have been made in the same way (or similar) because people warm to the fact you are not staring at corporate images and glitzy designs which can detract from your purpose of surfing the site and make you feel uncomfortable or like you're being groomed for something. Intrinsically, this kind of site screams of the good old internet, like when yahoo had a handful of sites in its listings, and the people seem to lap it up.

      On the other hand, it might serve the reputation of the site to have a design upgrade, but in my experience of university staff who talk about this kind of thing in their programmes and seminars, they are far more interested in the quality of experience for the user and the functionality than the kind of "Sodium Glutamate-laced" design that causes you to drool like a labrador who has just picked up on the scent of an open can of Rabbit and Cranberry Stew.

      I know this is probably a newbie question but, for someone on a shoestring budget, is there anyway that something similar could be implemented without buying all the domain names. Like using 1 domain name and sub-directories. From what I'm understanding it would cost $100. to set up 10 sites and that's no problem when you're up and running but for me to get started I'd have to look for a way to use 1 domain and get started with that.

        For someone who can't afford 150 domain names simply buy a few domains and build the wordpress sites on subdomains, using you keyword phrase as your subdomain. I am not sure there is any reason why you couldnt do this 50 times or more per domain.

        Example femininetatoos.genericdomain.com

        If you cant think of any great niches or dont have the time simply then outsource this work. You can do it cheaply and get back lots of niche keywords. You can then further research these before you dive into the blog building. Probably save you hours and hours.

        What about using a theme like Atomic Wordpress Themes that will put the clickbank and adsense ads in automated and has over 1000 niche headers?

        I was sure you were talking about adsense for most of this post then realized you monetized with clickbank, which I have never seemed to have much luck with. I have read about this system several times prior using adsense. AutoContentCash is one and includeds some great wp plugins to get backlinks and content.

        You mention only use pages and not posts but didnt read an explanation for this in this thread. I like to use content plugins that create add'l content and thus more trafiic. Any reason not to use posts?

        My advice is turn this into an efficient system and dont get bogged down in design and maintenence. I am prety sure someone over at fiverr would build your blogs for you while you are fast asleep.

        BTW after reading this I went over to a blog and have that wasnt monetized but was geting a trickle of traffic and added adsense. This morning I had a click for $1.50! 99 more blogs and its a done deal!

          Hey This site is great and so do the information. I am a new bee and I even don't have a site yet.

          I was wondering you guys have 100 of sites and what I check the hosting per month for a site is 10$.

          So 10 * 100 =1000$ Per Month.

          I cannot even think of it..

            Hey Dr A,

            You are thinking incorrectly. Hosting for 100 sites will still run you about $14 per month or so (if using a hosting company that allows unlimited add-on domains), and to purchase a domain might cost you $10 per year each, not $10 per month. You might pay $1000 for the year for 100 domains, but your income will far exceed that number annually.

          I don't use posts because my sites (even though created using WordPress) are made to look like regular static websites, not blogs. Further, the sites use an internal linking structure by using keywords that are pages throughout the site, which give the sites more favorable ranking juice within the SERPS.

          This could work but would not be as powerful. It's better to get a .com domain for each site/niche. If one were to build 10 sites per month this only comes out to around $100 bucks a month with godaddy. So really its not that expensive. Do that for a year and you got yourself an empire!

            So is an addon domain get less attention or is it penalized by G?

            Since blogger blogs are basically subdomains and they beat out alot of IM sites I planned on doing a host per 10 domain names (probably wouldn't settle for subdomain default naming).

            Also you can use infos for this. $2 bucks apiece. Some say stick to com, org, net. I think info is there.

              But everything I said in my first post still stands. 95% is rehashed and those guys don't make a dime from selling anything other than their IM products. Crack on me all you want.
              You are right, 90% of stuff in the IM niche are rehashed and just packaged differently..and probably 50% of the stuff in all other niches are rehashed and packaged differently too. That's the way it is in business, be it tangible products, digital products, info products.. etc..

              Do you see Sony Ecrisson, Motorola etc stop coming out with handphones because Nokia already have the same ones? More than 99% of the handphones out there are similar and have exactly the same functions, but why are they still able to generate revenue from them?

              Do you see Long John, Subway shunning away from the fast food industry just because Macdonald is owning everybody else? No, they just took the same idea and went at it with a different approach.

              and etc.. etc.. there are hell lot of examples out there if you want to look for them.

              It is TRUE that some people only make money from IM products (i.e making a living off teaching other people how to make money), but there are also tons out there that doesn't make money off IM products. WarriorForum is a internet marketing forum , naturally most of the people here are in the internet marketing niche..but there are tons out there not in the IM niche making a lot of money. (Want proof, go to clickbank look at the gravity scores for non IM products, if you don't know what gravity it, go and look it up)

              Great, you haven't failed at this business model. But judging from what you have said, you probably just want someone to tell you that it is possible for you to make it the first time so that you won't be wasting your time on it, because whenever you go, everybody seems to be saying the same thing and using the same method. And that(making it the first time) is definitely not going to happen unless you were born a internet marketing genius or have a lot of luck.

              The only way to know whether something works or not here.. is to try it out for yourself. If it works, then great, find a way to scale it up and expand, if it doesn't, learn from it, learn why it didn't work and how you can make it better next time

          If you are only seeking AdSense income then take your web page and paste it into the Google keyword tool and let it do the work for you. Use the principles that Gary is teaching or just use the keywords that it reveals and find the ones with the highest CPC and least traffic and rewrite your content on your webpage to monetize for these keywords or keyword.

      Given that you've got so many websites, there could be a few with topics related to each other. Do you ever link one website to another with same or different IPs presuming that you may have a few hosting accounts. Like do you put a visible link on the blog to bring your visitors to the next blog if it is relevant and related. I'm interested to know because I get very different opinions about this. Some say it's ok while others say it is bad.

        This seems like a good, simple method to follow. In fact, in the past few weeks, I've seen three different methods of getting your websites to make more money posted here. I've copied each of the three methods into word documents, and have purchased 10 domains for each method. Now, I'm in the process of creating the sites to go with each method (I've already got two up and am working on the rest). Once all the sites are up and running smoothly, I'll tend to them for a month, then compare the results I get between the three different methods I've seen posted on the WF.

        As a site flipper and affiliate marketer (I do a lot of both), doing a test of three different methods of increasing a site's income is a good thing, as it will not only help me make more money from my sites (especially once I determine which method is working best for me), but it will allow me to sell the sites for more money, too.

        So thank you very much for this information. I hope to be profitting from it shortly!

      One thing I'm finding hard to get my head around. When you mention build 20+ pages or create a static home page are you specifically talking about pages or could we use posts as well. Do you feel there is a difference to the search engines or our SEO value?

      Thanks for replying if you get a chance.

      Walter
      No problem Walter.

      The main page of your site is to be created as a static page. Do NOT use posts anywhere within the site. Once you make internal pages, you create them as you normally would. They are linked for the visitors view by the links you are creating within your sidebar.

      The sites rank well in the SERPS using this theory.

          The site is created using a format that utilizes the left sidebar of a WP blog (made to look like a regular website.) In this sidebar, you are using anchor text HTML to link a researched keyword as a page.

        This one was news to me.

        Ok, just wanting to be 100% clear or maybe I'm slow.

        You are saying NONE of your content should be added as posts.
        And that all content you wish to rank for is added as pages only, am I correct?:confused:

        This one was new to me, I was doing static home and posts thereafter for all content.

    How many times do you include the product link within the page - 1, 2, 3 or ?? Or is it dependent on how long your article is? And always as a text link, correct?

    I have a couple of site already built that sort of use this method, but I'm fine-tuning at this point and really appreciate your sharing your expertise.

        Add a word at the beginning or end of the keyword (domain names only), ex: keyword lose weight, example domain name www.loseweightnow.com

        Also, I have had no problems ranking with other suffixes (.biz, .info, etc.) The .com, .net, and .org are more branded and are advantageous for this reason.

    gpower, I know this is a silly question, but is there anyway you could give a more detailed walkthrough on getting your site set up as a static page so only your first article shows up on the first page? In WP I've gone to "Settings" and then to "Reading" and I've messed with this but I can't get it.

    My articles are all showing up on the main page, but I only want my first article there. Like you said earlier - I just want my other articles showing as links in the sidebar. Is there a theme you would recommend? What am I doing wrong here? I'm sure it's something simple but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Great post! I have a similar business model.

    I have found using mulitple pages that target a keyword for each page can be very powerful. I recently build a new blog using this method and for one of the keywords my site is showing up as #1, in only a few days, granted the competition is super low but still. Here is a link to google for proof: Google

    My site is coonhounds.info, when I first indexed it, the site also showed two other pages at the #2, and #3 spots. However these have fallen now, but I still have number one. I also show up on page one for two other key words "english coon hounds" and "bluetick coon hounds" and middle of page two for "treeing walker coon hounds". I am not ranking for the main keyword yet but I have started building backlinks so I think as I add more content it will easily make its way up. Because the current success is with only about 5 pages. I am adding more pages daily between other projects.

    I also have sites that target a single keyword and I have found it harder to rank them and gets lots of traffic. Granted you can still get on page one and get some visitors daily but its 20-100 vs 20-100 for each KEYWORD/PAGE of your blog?

    In conclusion, this can be a very powerful method. The key is to find super low competition niches and provide good content. Throw in backlinks and your set.

    Excellent info, thanks. I checked out your site--if i put in my e-mail do I get to see the next vid for free, or am I going to be offered a "special opportunity for the low low price of..." I like your method though, definitely seems like something that makes sense and I guess I would just have to figure out a few things:

    1) The math of how clickbank works and whether they have any affiliates associated w/the keywords I'm targeting.
    2) How to go about finding keywords to target. I understand the criteria you mentioned to determine whether they're good or not, but I guess maybe just open a listing of businesses and/or products and start going through everything you can think of?

    Thanks again for your time and the info.

      You will get more free training vids bud.

      1) Not sure what you mean by the math of ClickBank? Once you discover a niche you want to create a site within, you then need to do the keyword research for words you find relating to that niche.

      2) Find a niche, find some products to promote (ClickBank or otherwise), find the keywords. People have their own way of doing this. I can't really get too into how to do this thread. I mean, you can check out my whole business model and how to do everything within my latest system launch, but I can't really promote that here.

    That one tattoo site you use as an example is the perfect niche. I'll have to think about why that is for a bit. So far it seems good because it's not a nationwide product that has strong brands, like electronics or something, yet it has worldwide appeal. Also it's something people might impulse buy. Lastly it seems that the competition was pretty weak since a lot of people go to their local tattoo shops to get stuff done, so there aren't a lot of national/worldwide competitors...it just doesn't get much better than that.

    Was that one of your $100/day sites? If not it's gotta be close.

    @gpower2.

    I understand what exactly you did and in fact I wanted to implement this same exact method for my next review site. I have a question though:

    With your internal linking structure:
    1. you have 20 pages of content
    2. main keyword set as static page
    3. every other page targeting another keyword
    4. you put in the PAGES widget on your left side bar and every page's title is a keyword
    5. each one of those pages had an anchor text linking out to a product

    Would this be correct? I'm just trying to figure out what exactly is your internal linking structure. I mean when you say you have the keyword listed in your side bar, does that constitute as an internal link? Or are you linking pages to each other with anchor texts in the content.


    My idea is to create 8-10 pages on a site. Home page is where the review of a product is. All other pages are targeting niche related keywords, which then link back to the my home page where the review is.

    I would have the pages listed in the sidebar and also have a text widget with the product banner Im promoting.

        Hello gpower2,

        As mentioned in my PM, thank you for the great post. It gives me a lot to think about. I do have a few questions and hope you don't mind answering if you have time please.

        1 - I am a bit confused about your backlink process. You mentioned that sometimes you don't even need backlinks for the sites you choose. I dunno but I am having a tough time with this one as just about every micro niche i've looked at needed backlinks to get into the Top-10 let alone the top few spots. Are the people you are competing against not using any backlinks either? Is that how you are getting highly ranked without backlinking?

        2 - When you mention your keywords are >800 per month exact, do you mean your 20 keywords combined or each 20 has > 800. I realize this is probably not set in strone but am curious.

        Thanks!

    I am also confused with linking structure. I am stuck there!

    I've tried bunch of stuff, but it doesn't work the way I want. Since I saw few of gpower2 videos (which are great), I can see one of his websites, but I can't seem to mimic that linking structure.

    So basicly, my question is : do you make those links (keywords) on the left sidebar as Pages, Categories or Links? If you do, where do you actually put content if you are not using Posts?

    I'm very familiar with Wordpress so I'll answer what I think he is doing, and he can correct me if I'm wrong: The links on the left are all internal links to other pages on his site. All of the content on his site are simply more pages he has created, not other sites. It's very simple to do this in WP, you just add a page rather than add a post. It's clearly marked in the WP software editor.

    Osman, you are correct. His sidebar links go to another page on the same site with another targeted keyword. After about the opening paragraph, he has a call to action to click on "the best site for x product is _insert money site link_" Then at the bottom of the page he also has an 'ad' that he's created with another call to action to the same or similar money site. It's definitely well thought out and seems to be a good method.

      Thank you for the answer! I still have to play with the code, because my pages are actually creating as menu in the header instead of the sidebar on the left.

        Actually, this is not difficult do at all. Here is how:

        1. Create a custom menu for the navigation bar.
        2. Add the pages you want to display there (about, privacy etc..)
        3. Only those pages you placed in that menu will appear on the navigation bar.
        4. create 20 pages or how every many you want (I actually add those pages to nav bar as well by making a heading "articles" and make a sub menu with all the content pages.
        5. All pages titles should keywords you want to target.
        6. Complete form for All in one SEO plug in for each page.
        4. create a 2nd custom menu in wordpress and add all your pages (content).
        5. Add the "custom menu" widget to your sidebar and pick the 2nd custom menu you created.
        6. Done!


        Let me know if you need anymore clarity.

        Yeah I had an idea of the linking structure used here. My only other question is, how long is the content on each page? Any minimum amount to shoot for (500 words perhaps)?

        Folks, Im going to give this a try with one of my sites. However, I will only target 8-10 keywords. No posts, all pages. I will let you guys know of my progress.

          So far so good! I actually need some more help, if you don't mind. After I create pages, they still appear in the header menu, even though I have them in my links in the sidebar as well. Now I want to remove menu in the header completely. I don't need them there, since I don't wanna have 15-20 menu items in the header, obviously. More so, I would prefer not to go into sub-menus tweaking there simply because I don't need it! I currently have only 1 Home item in the header menu and don't want anything else there. I hope you can understand this!

          Thanks in advance.

            Yes, I know exactly what you are saying. If you go to your header php in your theme editor, scroll down to where it has the code listed below. Then list the pages you want to exclude.


            wp_list_pages('echo=0&title_li=&exclude=put your page numbers here ie 6,14')); } so it looks like;
            wp_list_pages('echo=0&title_li=&exclude=6,14,110') ); }


            There are also plug ins but many make the individual page disappear from both the top and side menu which is not good when you need Privacy, Disclosure etc.
            After spending time with it, I found tweaking code to be the best and easiest solution.

            Hope this helps.

            Use the Page Link Manager plugin to control the menu in your header, and then the SimpleSideNav plugin to set up and control a menu in your sidebar. That's how I did it earlier today, anyhow--took me a little while to figure it out.

    I agree with gpower2, and most of you guys, This takes time and research, you can get a site make $1 a day pretty quick, but you need a lot of work to make 200 sites like that...?

    Am I Right?,

    Maybe I'm wrong...

    With less time but a little bit of "an automated system" you can buy an aged domain, maybe under $15, do your keyword research and then automatically post as many content as you need, to fill the age of the domain, then do some tricks to get it re-indexed an after maybe 40 days Cashing!!!. From $1 to $7 per day. Then you need just to rinse and repeat...

        I assume you can do that 'and' tag the post. Doesn't that give you a kind of double hit?

          You can... I do it and I don't take a "hit" nor does it give me any more "juice".

          "Pages" does not allow for "tags", so I was offering a suggestion for adding your keywords (tags) to pages.

          You need to also optimize your TITLE and Description, because that's what's going to get people to click the link to your site.

          Your site can be #1 for a keyword, but if the site below yours has an attractive title and description then they'll get the click.

          I made a post on another of my blogs that's similar to the link that I provided in an earlier post, but this one goes into a little more detail about why optimizing your TITLE and DESC are just as important as getting to #1.

    Guys, don't get hung up on the 'system' so much, it's the general principle you need to apply. Wordpress is just one way (though EVERY Internet marketer should know how to use Wordpress), you could do this with static pages in Dreamweaver or any html editor! I wrote my own 'lite' script to do the same. The point is you have a front page and lots of keyword-optimised subpages at a depth of just one and linked on the home page. It's not voodoo, seriously, just keep it simple and focus on the content and keywords.
    For a low-competition niche you can rank no. 1 with just ONE page, I've done it lots of times!

      Hey Guy, I agree with you 100% here, as I build all of my stuff from plain old raw HTML. Wordpress is great for non-coders, but HTML is really NOT all that hard. But I would like to mention two(2) things here you forgot, which totally simplify any website design.
      * CSS, or cascading stylesheets - They set the style and general look of your site.
      * Templates - Create your index page (without content) and use this as your basic framework for your other pages. Your site now has continuity, functionality and really powerful flexibility.
      * Quality content - It's not just enough to put content on your pages; it must be HIGH quality content. And Google tracks this with their advanced algorithyms.
      * Backlinks - Yes these too are highly important. The best way to get these, I've found, is to write (or rewrite) articles for sites like HubPages.com, Yahoo Answers and other similar sites.

      When designed in this manner, just add plenty of quality content and Google (and other search-engines) will love it just as much as any blog out there.

        That's four (4) things I totally agree though, I was just simplifying things from the technical point of view as Wordpress can be overkill sometimes. My little script uses CSS and Smarty templates, and of course the content is always quality (hey, I write it ). Hmm, I would offer that script as a WSO, but I just can't be bothered with answering all the support questions afterwards, cos people'll find all kinds of ways to break it!

    Gpower2 thanks so much for sharing in your success strategies! I am a total newbie, and I have an unsuccessful blog with wordpress.org. I want to begin to build based on your type of model. My question is:

    Are you able to create multiple sites using Wordpress 3.0 and the multi user/network capability? I use hostgator with unlimited domains. Doesn't that take away from your unique domain names that have the keyword in them? My understanding is that each new site is an addition, formatted like this:

    original url.new url.com

    Am I missing something here? Any insight you can offer will be very much appreciated. Thanks again!
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[2829767].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author LilBlackDress
      Rapph, the add on domains is pretty confusing. But each domain can have its own individual name. You do not have to tack it on to the other name when you set up your websites. I had a number of accounts in an addon site and they all had their own websites.

      So lets say your original name is BlueWidgets.com and you also own RedWidgets.com. For WordPress you could set up your domains like this BlueWidgets.com and RedWidgets.com OR you could have bluewidgets.com and redwidgets.bluewidgets.com

      I recently moved all my sites from an add on account to reseller account and each was moved as its own domain. I left the main name behind.

      The system is made to take advantage of naturally occurring, organic search engine traffic. If you want to drive traffic alternatively, you can, but it is not entirely necessary.

Lastly it seems that the competition was pretty weak since a lot of people go to their local tattoo shops to get stuff done, so there aren't a lot of national/worldwide competitors...it just doesn't get much better than that.

      Was that one of your $100/day sites? If not it's gotta be close.
      It's funny you mention this. The tattoo niche is actually a VERY difficult niche to crack. The reason I created that site, is because I wanted to have a test site I can show to my clients to prove to them how well the system works.

      There is no shortage of traffic in the niche, it's just that most people want to get design ideas online but don't necessarily purchase. They are saving their money to actually buy the tattoo.

      Example: the average conversion ratio online is 1% or 1 out of every 100 visitors will buy. In the tattoo niche, it is more like 1 out of every 400.

      The power of my system is the high amount of organic traffic that is generated. Simple put, more targeted traffic = more conversions. $$$

      So basicly, my question is : do you make those links (keywords) on the left sidebar as Pages, Categories or Links? If you do, where do you actually put content if you are not using Posts?
      The links are created using anchor text HTML, with your keywords (pages) being the clickable links. Further, they are placed in the left sidebar using text widgets.

      Tags on the pages within WP aren't as important with this system. Your on page SEO and internal page linking help with this.

      Ha...Ha...Ha..., it;s funny you ask. I don't get DSL up here and have to use satellite which is pretty bad. It is a personal choice of mine though, wouldn't change it for the world. I deal with the slower internet to live the life I choose.

      3. Only those pages you placed in that menu will appear on the navigation bar.
      4. create 20 pages or how every many you want (I actually add those pages to nav bar as well by making a heading "articles" and make a sub menu with all the content pages.
      5. All pages titles should keywords you want to target.
      6. Complete form for All in one SEO plug in for each page.
      4. create a 2nd custom menu in wordpress and add all your pages (content).
      5. Add the "custom menu" widget to your sidebar and pick the 2nd custom menu you created.
      6. Done!


      Let me know if you need anymore clarity.

      Yeah I had an idea of the linking structure used here. My only other question is, how long is the content on each page? Any minimum amount to shoot for (500 words perhaps)?

      Folks, Im going to give this a try with one of my sites. However, I will only target 8-10 keywords. No posts, all pages. I will let you guys know of my progress.
      The content on the pages varies. 500 to 750 words for informational products. 350 - 500 for physical products.

      1. Buy a decent web hosting that allows multiple websites (add-on domains). I have a shared web hosting account of up to 50 add-on domains. If I consume all the add-on domains, I'll get another account.
      2. Do some research on what's selling like hotcakes on the Internet. Compile a list of relevant keywords with high commerciality and low competition.
      3. Buy domain names related to the main keywords I want to target.
      4. Create websites using WordPress.
      5. Post content using articles I create myself, outsource from others, or spun from other articles.
      6. Update from time to time. Concentrate my SEO efforts on just a few websites and ignore the rest.

      Do you think this type of strategy will work?
      That will work!

      It's almost all organic! That's why I love this system. Each keyword (page) will rank on the first page of Google. If you have done your keyword research and competition manageability correctly BEFORE creating your site, the traffic takes care of itself.

      As mentioned in my PM, thank you for the great post. It gives me a lot to think about. I do have a few questions and hope you don't mind answering if you have time please.

      1 - I am a bit confused about your backlink process. You mentioned that sometimes you don't even need backlinks for the sites you choose. I dunno but I am having a tough time with this one as just about every micro niche i've looked at needed backlinks to get into the Top-10 let alone the top few spots. Are the people you are competing against not using any backlinks either? Is that how you are getting highly ranked without backlinking?

      2 - When you mention your keywords are >800 per month exact, do you mean your 20 keywords combined or each 20 has > 800. I realize this is probably not set in strone but am curious.

      Thanks!
      See my response above in answer to your question #1. I only backlink pages that need it once my site has settled into the SERPS. 10% of your pages will rank on their own merit! There are a few ways that I manage this when I create my sites. Too long winded to explain here. I will PM you some info about my system if interested.

      2 - Each keyword has to have at least 800 exact searches per month when using the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. If your keywords are searchable you lose the power of the organic search engine traffic that drives this system.

      Are you able to create multiple sites using Wordpress 3.0 and the multi user/network capability? I use hostgator with unlimited domains. Doesn't that take away from your unique domain names that have the keyword in them? My understanding is that each new site is an addition, formatted like this:

      original url.new url.com

      Am I missing something here? Any insight you can offer will be very much appreciated. Thanks again!
      I use HostGator for M.O.B.S. sites and it is no problem with WordPress.org. When you add sub-domains, they show up as www.yousite.com, just like a regular domain name. looks no different.

      I have HostGator accounts with 50+ websites 1 main domain, 49 sub-domain url's, it's all good!

        I beleive part of the confusion here me be the terminology used. What Gary is referring to on Hostgator are "add-on domains" not subdomains.

        Subdomains is using a domain like www.bluewidgets.com and adding another domain underneath it to look like www.forum.bluewidgets.com

        An "add-on domain" is just adding another domain to your shared hosting account. Each addon domain is seperate but in a shared hosting setup you just have 1 c-panel instead of a c-panel for each domain.

        Cheers,
        Brendan

          Lee, thanks for the down-to-earth lightness. Believe it or not, I have partially created such a site (a few actually) and always mean to "get around" to properly making them profitable.

          Presuming I stick to one of these sites, would it be possible for you to point me towards a good plan of action for doing a reasonable job of promoting the site to get some organic traffic and clicks which is measurable.

          The reason I say this is because what tends to happen is the site gets created and a big campaign of tactics launches. This has worked really well in the past, but never with the kind of niche sites you might expect of this sort of project. For example, at a minimum, what would you do. As for me, I would:

          Submit 2 articles.
          Bookmark a page on the site.
          Bookmark a "bookmark of bookmarks" page.
          Ping the resultant pages.
          Create an RSS of the site and submit that.

          I guess this is too much of a minimum and therefore should include:

          Submission of 2 videos plus bookmarking/pinging etc.
          Creation of 5 web 2.0 feeder sites (so-called link wheel)
          10 directory submissions

          Would you say those things (8 things) are enough of a minimum? Plus all the on-page SEO stuff?

          Or do we need to go down that horrible route of using BlueFart software to create a gazillion spun (aka resource consuming/junk) blogs and Web2.0 sites and so on for "low-class" but needed link juice.

          If not, can you divulge a better plan? By PM if you want.

            It's a good start, but most of it is not necessary...

            The keywords we teach you guys to get, are ones that hardly require any backlinks... the sites structure and choice of keywords all come together to produce a nice LSI Structured Document, a little like wikipedia, but done on a smaller scale.

            IF however, you want to boost your rankings, the steps you mentioned will help, not too sure about just 2 articles though...

            I took Gary's site to page one from page 5 for a term that had been sitting on page 5 for about a year, but he never touched it to use it as an example, that you dont really need to get backlinks if some of the keywords do well on their own, most ppl will navigate to another page; a page that could be one that is not ranking on the first 2 pages of google, so it kinda balances it self out...

            but when I got behind the wheel to prove a point of my method of getting backlinks, the lazy way, was via one source (article directories / blogs), within 5 days, he was ranked 6th... and that page, for the past 2 1/2 months has been making around 1-3 sales a day, at $17 - $21 a pop when a sale is made


            So what other sources are there to get links from if you feel you need to give your pages a push up higher in the rankings?

            1. social bookmarking.
            2. social media sites, like twitter, ok, twitter uses nofollow, but the blogs that take the rss feeds dont
            3. googlegroups, msngroups, yahoogroups.
            4. article directories
            5. blog directories
            6. craigslist
            7. classified ads
            8. forums (not sigs, but in actual posts - takes time to build a reputation first before placing links in posts)
            9. guestbooks
            10. press releases (which get you in google news, etc)
            11. your own network of personally owned sites
            12. other related sites you dont own.
            13. rss feed directories
            14. video sites (some dont have the nofollow)

            All the sources will be explained in the Gold Level of MOBS after the new year... though there's already 32 extra ones I added the other day, 42 more are going to be added next month... and after the new year there's going to be about 20-30 more...

            Our goal is to create an IM University, covering all aspects of making money online...

      Guys, one simple way to do the promotion on these pages is:
      1. give a link from one or 2 of your other blog rolls to it the moment you push the page live.
      2. write 1 xomba snippet for your keyword and your new page will be indexed and have a 'little' traffic within 30 minutes to 1 hour (normally for me).
      3. Buy a list of 15 to 20 .EDU or .Gov sites. Put 2 links (not to many or The G will freak 'won't believe you') to each of your new pages all different links obviously.
      3. write an article submit to 300+ article directories (use a bot or farm it out if needed).

      next build more pages and follow above.

      Come back follow the money see which pages are putting coins in your pocket. Promote those pages with 1 more article. Then learn from them as to what you did right. Then build more just like them and repeat above process.

      You should find this to work rather well

        These are nice tips Patrick and much like what I do. I generally use a little fast indexing tool and am indexed really quickly. I used to use Clipmarks.

        I also use a content site that indexes my content. This has been phenomenal at improving rankings for my keywords.

        Fiverr has some inexpensive .gov links or I outsource.

        AMR is outstanding for mass article submission.

        And I am featured writer at Xomba in one of my niches.

        So great ideas and I use them all. However, I just have tons of keywords and quite a few sites so would love to find some quick and effective methods to blast them all out there till I can get to them to work on them individually.
        Just one of my sites for example, has over 100 carefully selected keywords.

      I would say that 10% of your pages will rank naturally. For the rest of the pages, you can pretty much use any backlinking processes you want to. You have already pre-determined that these keywords (pages) have manageable competition, so you don't have to work as hard as you might think to get the remaining pages ranked on page #1 of Google.

          Don't do profile links like the service here someone does on forums, etc does... its not a good method of SEO, in fact, it hurts your site over time. And your rankings wont become stable.

          What he does 90% of the time? Spends all that money I guess on his Wife, Kids and his horses

          j/k...

          Article Marketing is one method that works well, other is to set up your own network of sites, mix in some social media sites, press releases, etc.

      Good question. However, since you are building each inner page in a MOBS site fully optimized around a specific keyword, more of those pages will naturally rank on page 1 than you realize just using good onpage SEO. Use techniques on the inner pages such as linking to other internal pages using anchor text links.

      What I did was personally invest in SEOpressor plug in that was created by fellow WF member, Daniel Tan. You don't know how good that tool works with a MOBS site to help you with onpage SEO. Which will go a long way to getting your pages to rank naturally.

      You can find keyword for almost any niche that have at least 800 Global Searches and less than 30,000 website competition. Use extra FREE tools such as the "Wonder Wheel" and "Related Searches" which can be found on page 1 of Google under the "More Search Tool" dropdown in the left hand sidebar.

      Don't forget, you can build MOBS sites around both info and physical products. So the niches out there for you to build sites around are numerous! Plenty to go around!

      Hope this helped some!

    Another way, is to blast some emails out to yahoogroup ezine lists (double optin)... give it a day or so, and you will find a LOAD of blogs taking the feeds from these groups and populating it on their blogs...

      I've not read every post in this thread but if I understand correctly then this is a similar system to what I use. Either way, I'll share something some of you may find useful and might help to explain this strategy.

      Here are some actual figures from two of my websites that started out as an experiment. I'm initially going after one key word phrase only.

      Site 1 www keywordphrase.net
      Site 2 www keywordphrase.com

      The main keyword phrase I'm targeting gets 1000 global searches month for broad and 170 for exact. Sounds low? That's typical of some of the phrases I go after. The thing is it depends on the keywords. I go for keywords that can (and do) get searched in various permutations. For instance,

      how to use keyword
      keyword guides
      where to buy keyword
      keyword explained
      keyword for beginners
      advanced keyword uses
      etc etc

      Site 2 is a one page site plus privacy and contact pages - that's it.
      It's in position 3 of Google and here are some stats.

      Total visitors approx - 800 month
      Monthly visits for targeted key phrase - 72
      The remaining visits are mostly based on variations of the keyword phrase.
      Site earnings - approx five pennies per decade

      Site 1 has seven pages of content, all written for humans, all informative but all seven pages are still based on the same key phrase using some of the popular searched variations.

      Google positions 1 and 2

      Total monthly visits approx 7k across all seven pages
      Monthly visits for targeted key phrase - approx 150
      The remaining visits are spread across the seven pages
      Each page is linked via text widget, all pages are static pages. I'm not sure that really matters but I'll mention it as it's what the OP is doing.
      Site earnings anything from $30 to $300 per month.

      I have been using this strategy for about three years. My linkbuilding efforts usually add up to nothing more than a directory / article blast with submiter software. Occasional the odd EZA article etc.

      I use this strategy because a: it works b: I hate building links unless I absolutely have to.

      I pay very little attention to the numbers in keyword tools. All I'm interested in is, are the searches low enough that no one else bothers going after them and is it on a subject that people are seeking information, willing to spend money on that information and does the keyword get searched for in enough variations to increase the traffic.

      Multiple pages all based around the same keyword idea, linked internally wikipedia style is something people used to talk about but don't seem interested in anymore. I personally think it's now more powerful than ever.

      Someone always has to ask this question.

      My true motivation is that I sincerely enjoy helping people succeed, plain and simple.

      This system is only one of my income streams, so I don't need the income from the sales of this system.

      I am not undercutting myself. There is plenty of room for everybody. There are thousands of niches and keywords as yet to be discovered. I know it doesn't seem like that at first, but believe me there is. The internet in and of itself is VERY much untapped.

      This system runs on virtual auto-pilot for me now.

      Jump right in the waters fine.

        Thanks again for the info. I guess if there really are that many exploitable niches then it makes sense to share.

        We were just doing a little bit of tooling around on Google's keyword research tool and there really does seem to be a huge gap in competition between various niches. We initially tried some keywords that only get 1k or so hits/mo and the competition was much tougher than some others that get 5k+.

        Also, it's tricky to know whether certain sites can be overtaken. It seems like a key to this process is the ability to get the top 1-3 spots in google, and knowing if you can do it with minimal effort. Some of the criteria you list are good, but some others such as the number of backlinks to a site versus the domain, optimization of title/domain/heading/desc, are tough to know whether you can overtake a competitor. Is that something you go over in more detail in the ebook?

    @jobfreeop, i think using the stockmarket is a bad example, they crash a lot...

    MOBS sites dont

    Gary will outsource most of his work, mainly articles.

    He'll spend probably no more than 2 hours, an hour most of the time, per day.

    In fact, i spend less than an hour a day, if that actually, I'm like Dan Brock, I'm a lazy bugga, and I collected over 1986 websites over the course of 4 years, generating a sod load of money each month.

      Hi I am still trying messing with the figures.

      As I said, if we used Bonds instead (risk free compared with stocks) then the valuations I just gave would be about 4 x bigger for each site.

      Still, if I am valuing a site at $2k conservatively ($6 per day), how does that match with the amount of investment required INCLUDING TIME to set up a $6 site.

      What I'm saying is provided you can get the income of a single site to stay at $6 per day for a time period of 2 years to FOREVER, its worth between $2k and $6k for the site on its own, independently in terms of valuation, given that money decreases in value as we go on, and given also, I could just buy a property which would average out at 12% given historical average property growth.

      I know this is an analytical and theoretical paradigm, as stated, but I'd still like to know...as the calculations are a decision tool (actually I think it is called Decision Rule in finance)...

      People who run adsense for example would agree that the time issue (and investment) is an important issue to address.

        You should analyse things like this but I think you maybe worry too much about it. I think try a few things first and then do the maths. The problem with over-analysing is it becomes too formulaic. Some things work and some don't. The rest can just be written off.

        In the example I used above, I can build these sites in anything from a couple of hours to a week, anything up to 30 or so pages. Some of them will earn $10 per month, some might do $200 month or whatever. The main thing is to build the site, move on, build another and then monitor it. The ones that seem to work - go back and invest more time into them. The ones that look like a waste of time, dump them. You might lose x amount of hours per year of wasted time. As long as it isn't most of your efforts then it's just part of your business model.

        My own advice, take a month or two, build ten or twenty sites, just do them, don't obssess over them, don't fuss over what theme to use, write them for humans, just keep an eye on them. After a few weeks / months, the ones that look worth tweaking... tweak.

        Over time you'll get better at it.

        As I said before bud..

        He'll spend probably no more than 1 hour a day to get it set up... MOST of his sites he doesn't touch at all... Just like all my sites, I haven't touched them since they were put up and they still make money... I got a site that has NO backlinks in the asset protection sector and consistently makes $5+ a day in adsense and I haven't touched it in 3 years.

        Once he's finished his first 20-30 page site (done in less than a week - if outsourcing the articles, which he does mainly now), he leaves it, and moves on to the next one. and so on.

        And if he has the time, he'll spend probably no more than 20-30 minutes to push some backlinks out there.

        Don't over think this man... The strategy is too simple to be too over analytic.

        You are reading too many investment books. You are talking about valuations of assets of a MAJOR corporation or even a country. That is why you can valuate assets over such long periods.

        NO ONE will ever pay several years of revenue for a network of mini affiliate/adsense sites. You will be lucky to get a year of revenue. The reason is mini sites are not a solid business except for a few rare networks. You rely on Google algorithms, low competition keywords (which changes), and you are an affiliate. You own almost nothing so you will get almost nothing.

        Those sites don't make money infinitely nor do they grow. Most will wither as more competition enters the market which means you need to spend more time than you think to hold positions.

        The only way to ever see those kind of valuations with Internet businesses is if you have a major foothold in a market.

          Thank you for the dose of reality, kind sir. Actually, I started off just for fun applying the formulae to the "business" of a single adsense site. Due to moving from forex into a specialised area of stock markets I am having to learn what the fund managers call 'real finance' from the ground up...so practising to remember some basic formulae. Please note, it is still my belief that forex is for the higher-skilled traders for a number of reasons out of the scope of this forum. Oh, well, there goes my dream of being a financial genius - as applied to a 20 page adsense site.

    I use 1and1.com, they're even cheaper... $6.99 for first year, $8.99 a year thereafter... I can't bring myself to pay $10 for a domain name or $14 a month for webspace for one site.

    And I pay $120 every 3 months for web space (dedicated).. this particular server has 112 sites on on it.. so it works out quite well.

    Why do you use pages and not posts? Is there a big difference? I ask this because I have a feeling that G00gle when it finds your site in a wp platform it treats it as a blog an there for expects fresh posts and new content continuously.

    And why exactly left sidebar and not right or any other combination?

    gpower2,

    Thanks for the great thread. Not only was your original post very helpful, but I learned even more from the conversation that followed it.

    Being new to IM, I was drawn to the idea of making niche sites that make a small but consistent amount of money every day, and simply scaling up the number of sites over time. My one problem with this is that most of the info I've read on the subject is targeted at one or two page sites. My initial problem with this is a feeling that I wouldn't be really contributing to the greatness of the internet (which is important to me). I don't want to add to the giant pile of low quality websites that are piled up all over the internet (Not to say all one page sites are low quality, but everyone knows there are a lot of them that are). Your method seems to solve this problem for me. By making a site around a general niche, and having many high quality pages about different subjects within that niche you are not only ensuring long term rankings in google, but it forces you to have a hub of high quality information for certain people that would be interested in it, which in turn is contributing to what I believe is the greatest part about the internet existing in the first place. Your system makes this process much more fulfilling, which in turn can keep a newbie like me interested and motivated through those initial phases of hard work. Thank you for that! I am definitely starting this method tomorrow morning.

    It's cool to see you live in Paradise, I'm actually from Northern California as well. I live in the Yuba City/Marysville area, about 45 minutes north of Sacramento. It's too bad you live out in the woods. For my day job I work in sales for Comcast and I'd totally hook you up with a great deal on some high speed internet! haha. (obligatory plug: anyone in California that has Comcast in your area, PM me if you want to hear about some good deals, even if you already have service with us! You'd be surprised about what I can do for you.)

    Also gpower2, any chance you can pm me a link to one of your sites or something like it for reference? Trust me I have no intentions of competing in the same niche or for the same keywords as someone like you. That would be suicide, haha!!

      Hi Ciber, It doesn't come down to which one you trust more. Gary's experience and from what I've seen on the few MOBS sites I've built, both indicators are proven to provide the best initial information for the first glance at competition level. The goal with MOBS (and what helps make it successful) is you are setting up sites that focus on keywords with minimal competition. Hence one of the reasons your sites will naturally rank very high from the get go. The MOBS criteria is first check your keyword in Google in quotes. The # of competing websites should be < 30,000 Then check the keyword in Google prefixed with allintitle: You are good to go is the results is less than < 10,000. Having the keyword in the Title is a huge onpage SEO factor. If your keyword meets these 2 factors, as Gary says, you can rank naturally with little to no backlinking. But don't forget you do want to examine the backlink detail of each site on page 1 of Google for your keyword using a tool such a Traffic Travis or Market Samuari. Hope this helps!

      I have read the entire thread from beginning up to this point. I have a few questions that I would like to ask and I hope you don't mind answering them.

      You've mentioned that you use .net, org, and .info. Do you also use other domain extensions such as .us, .me, .biz, etc.? If so, how do they perform in terms of ranking?

      Do you use any wordpress plugins on your sites? If so, do you mind sharing it with us?

      Do you ever register a new domain and develop it? OR do you buy a domain with age and pagerank so that its easier to achieve a better SERP.

      Lastly, The title of this thread states that you have about 150 websites. You also stated that your hosting your site at Hostgater using 1 main domain and 49 add on domains. So I'm assuming you have 3 separate accounts with Hostgator? my question is do you link each site that belong to a different account?

      Thanks again.
      Generally speaking, the only plugins you MUST use is: All In One SEO XML Sitemaps A link cloaking plug in of some kind There are some others I use personally that helps me, such as : SEOpressor Wordpress.com Stats Google Analyticator.........just to name a few And with MOBS, if you are new to Internet Marketing and starting out with no $, you should register a new domain and develop it. But I do know of a couple other MOBSters, more experienced in IM, that have purchased a highly optimized domain but changing the whole site around to meet the MOBS criteria. I assume there were some aspects of the existing site that meet MOBS criteria but needed some tweaking to make it better.

    Hello gpower2,

    First, thank you for sharing what you know. I am interested in getting into affiliate marketing and have a few questions.

    1. How are you defining low competition? Is it by the green competition bar in the Google keyword tool or the monthly number of searches? Sometimes the green bar says high competition, but there will be a low monthly number of searches.

    2. Do you have different hosting accounts for each of your wordpress sites or do you have multiple wordpress installations on one host? It almost seems like overkill to set up a full wordpress installation for a 20 page site.

    3. Do you think it is better to use html static pages or wordpress for a mini site if once the site is set up, it isn't going to be updated frequently?

    Thank you

      Hi RunningBear, You don't need to worry so much with the green competition bar for judging competition. Actually, in the videos where Gary shows you how to use the new Google Keyword Tool, he suggests you turn the Green Bar Column off. You only need to judge keyword competition by typing the keyword, in quotes, into Google to see if the competition is < 30,000 But also search the keyword in Google again but this time, place allintitle: in front of the keyword. If those results come back < 10,000 sites that have the keyword in the title, you should be able to rank relatively easy with little to no backlinking. I'm not saying you might have to do any backlinking but won't have to do much.

        zosowolfpacker,

        Can you clarify this, please?

        I understand looking for the keyword or keyword phrase in Google with quotes - "keyword phrase"...

        But when you say add the allintitle: parameter, do you still leave the keyword or keyword phrase in quotes, like this - allintitle:"keyword phrase" and see if that is less than 10,000?

        Thanks!

          Hey Chris,

          Nope, take the quotes away when searching by allintitle:

          So it would be allintitle:keyword

          Shows you how many competing websites actually have the keyword in their title. Very important onpage SEO factor. You will be amazed sometimes to find how many site owners leave this important piece out. Even for keywords in popular niches.

          Shreveport LA? Will be flying into Shreveport on business week after Thanksgiving. Working in the "big city" of Bossier City then on to West Monroe Been there a few times. Interesting place!

            Thanks for the clarification, Doug! Do you know if there is any particular reason why it's not taught to use the allintitle parameter with quotes? My understanding is that using it with the quotes was always a better indicator of who's using the the exact phrase in their titles.

            Using the allintitle parameter without quotes does show who's using it in their titles, but the results show any variation of how it's being used.

              Hi Chris,

              To be honest, I have no idea why it is not taught to use the quotes around the keyword for the allintitle: search. I remember asking Gary this when he taught me that step. He said to use it without quotes and I trusted his expert judgment since he is more experienced that I am in this arena. But so for the allintitle:keyword without quotes has worked for my keyword research and seems to right on target.

              Yeah, I will have to see what my work schedule will be when I'm in town. I usually don't know until I get to my destination, but sure, we can grab a bite to eat if the schedule allows. Thanks for the invite.

              I'm going to assume that the whole purpose of the thread is to get people to buy your product.

              Using pages vs posts in your blogs is not new. Affilorama uses this method in blogs. What I see in your strategy is some basic info with no real strategy to get page 1 rankings. 1 left sidebar with internal linking in fact is a standard method.

              What I struggle with in starting out, is finding niches where the top 10 on a google search for the main keyword(s) is crackable. For instance, turkey fryer. Or lawn blower. Possibly I'm targeting Amazon products that are too popular.

              Which leads to my real point. I don't want to buy another training program that uses 'dog training' and is just some guy who 'says' he makes money in IM when in reality his hopes are to make money selling yet another rehash of 'how to make money in IM'.

              When someone sits down and develops a training product that actually walks a student through 5 different setups, blogs etc.. from start to finish, I think I might have to change my pants.

              But that won't happen, since the 5 walk throughs, after 6 months, can be reviewed by any new potential buyers of the product. And when they see that all 5 sites are failures, the product is not sellable anymore, and so it's back to using 'dog training' and alot of hype about your house, your horse, your clickbank sales and all the other garbage you guys use to sell your rehash.

              Tell me you use some real examples and do complete walkthrus, from finding a niche thru whatever means, to the final blog / site. Let me look at 1 or 2 of your 150 sites that are successful.

              Then maybe I'll try your product.

                Dood in which part of his post did he even ask anybody to buy his product?! It's only in his sig and almost everybody else on here does the same thing in their same sig (asking people to buy their products through their sigs).

                If you don't believe this method works, then fine, don't do it. You talk about Affilorama blogs using the same method, so have you actually even used the same method and tried it for yourself? I bet not.... Maybe you did.. but you just created a site based on a certain product and then expect it to rise to the top #10 of google for the keyword you found overnight.. you know what??Thats not going to happen!!

                Yes a lot of stuff are rehashed and sold in different ways, but you have the ability to choose to buy or not right? The money is YOURS.. if you think you already know what you are going to get from the product you are going to buy and you don't need it.. then you DON'T buy it!!! It's that simple!!!!!!!!:confused:

                And products that walk a student from start to finish for a whole blog (seperate from the IM niches) DO EXIST, you just need to looker harder

                If you have problems with finding niches, then read more about it, work more on it, learn more about it!!!! If you have trouble finding niches yourself, what good would it do you even if he showed you a few examples of his own?!! Everything you need to know is already in the first post, all you need to do is to tweak it to fit your own style!!!

                People use dog training as an example for their programs because it's the easiest, and (read) because it's an EXAMPLE. Just think about it, if the owner of the product gave away a good breakable niche but there are at least 10-50 students taking the same program, what good would it do any of you? You all would be just competing among yourself (which makes no difference if its dog training or a breakable niche anymore), therefore it is of course better to teach you how to find your own niches rather than hand it over to you on a golden platter!!!

                  I haven't failed at anything since I haven't tried any of this yet. I have two sites I've owned for 5 years and since I do make money from adsense and clickbank on those sites, I want to expand. But those ideas didn't come from wanting to make money. The monetization was added later.

                  What research I've done with the trial of Market Samurai lead me to believe that a product is needed that focuses more on niche and less on everything else. Is that wrong? Whatever.

                  But I think I found one or two training products that might have more than the usual theoretical instruction.

                  And I'll probably quietly join the war room.

                  But everything I said in my first post still stands. 95% is rehashed and those guys don't make a dime from selling anything other than their IM products. Crack on me all you want.

                  In the inimitable words of the Greaseman... Please, don't call me dude.

                  I believe that when the product is released that focuses on the front end work, ideas, niches, developing keywords, long tail, whatever, getting around the big guys with pr 5. Using real examples, burned after the fact or not, will be a very rich man, woman, ... or dude.

                  Maybe it isn't possible. Has to come from practice. And staring at recent Digg entries, Market Samurai anchor texts. Whatever it takes.

                I'm goin to assume you have been burned one to many times. I know how you feel but if you are going to continue in this industry failure is only a stepping stone towards your success. BTW If you had information that you believed could really benefit people and you spent long hours creating it wouldnt you want people to buy your product? Thats what this industry is all about, making money from home. Thats what this guy is doing but he is providing useful content in doing so.

  • I have never done any of this blog farming thingy, but I fail to see how building, growing and maintaining 200 websites for $5/day each could possibly be an efficient way of using your time as an affiliate, even if you outsource the whole thing (which costs money and time from you).

    Someone always has to ask this question.
    Well, it's a legit question. True altruism is very uncommon, so it's natural for people to get suspicious when there is someone who wants "just to help" not have the person convert in an email for the least or a lead, or a potential future buyer. Let's be honest with ourselves.

      He wasn't sad why the poster asked that question...

      He's sad for the reason that lead up to that question...

      A common pattern you see these days is product owners are more about making sales, and dont lend a hand when the buyer wants.

      Gary is the real deal, he's heart is in the right place... He lives a comfortable life, and he wants others to share his experience.

      Gary and his wife operate Spirit quilts, check the bottom of the mobs site for a video of him and his wife, you can also visit their website too, full contact info, etc is all there to see they are real people working towards a real goal.

      The only one I can see doing stuff like this is, Gary, Anik Singal, Joel Comm's crew, And Allen (of this forum)... I wish there were more, all of which I have helped as well with donations, except for Anik as I can't find a page to donate to his efforts of building schools and tools etc.

      For some people the pay off isn't always financial, it makes them feel good, so no it's not true ultriusm, but the pay off isn't money.

      Some people are even nice/kind/helpful because they believe in hell and karma.

      So no not everyone does something for a lead/money.

      There can be many reasons for people helping others at any given time, sometimes people get high off their own success and feel good so they want to help others.

      And sometimes you make as much money as you wanted to make.

    Wow! Nice strategy. I am also trying to do something like this. currently stuck at $300 per month.

    *Note - Get a hosting company that allows unlimited sub-domains so that you can build more sites by just buying more domain names only.
    I think you mean to say Unlimited Addon Domain. Where we can host unlimited websites.

    I'm working my way through the keyword research methods touched on in this thread, the MOBS site, and some other videos and guides I've acquired. I'm hitting a road block with Google's updates to the keyword tool (and nearly all of the videos and guides I'm viewing utilize the old interface). Where I'm having trouble is getting the GAKT to provide me with related keywords that aren't extremely broad. Using the "feminine tattoos" niche as an example, I can't get it to return anything resembling the sidebar categories that were used on the example site. I've tried setting the match type to Broad, [Exact], and "Phrase", but none of them yield the results I'm looking for.

    I can't help but feel that I'm missing something painfully obvious here, but I can't seem to track down a useful guide that incorporates the new tool updates. I've spent the last few days studying this method (thanks Gary, by the way - this is amazing!) and I am tremendously anxious to start taking some action on this method!

    If anybody could point me (and others) in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

      If I type feminine tattoos into GAKT, I get most of the related keywords used on the sample MOBS site.

      Did you sign in with your GAKT account before doing the search? That will give you more results, although when I just check now, I didn't bother logging in and it gave me enough results.

      Also, what do you have your "Locations" and "Languages" set to? These are available under the "Advanced options"

        I am signed in so I am getting more results. I'm set to U.S. and English.

        I've poked around a bit more and I think that the problem was that it was default sorting to "Local Monthly Searches". Is it best to sort by relevance and work from that list top to bottom? I changed it to "Relevance" and I can see a number of categories from the sample MOBS site.

        This brings up one question: the web-based results are sorted by relevance, but the exported CSV doesn't have a field for relevance. You could easily add an "Order" column with an ascending value in it, which would allow you to re-sort by the original relevance. Does anybody have any tips for working within the exported spreadsheets? Keith Dougherty has some wonderful videos around this topic that I've been learning from. Any other tips would be wonderful.

        Now that I can extract my keywords, I can go forward with this! Thanks UMS for getting my mind going. A little push in the right direction is definitely appreciated

      You can also use Google's wonder wheel to drill down on the keywords and then type them into Google's KWT and Google search as already stated and check the results.

      Briley,
      That was my same question to Gary when I started in IM. I'm not sure how he does it. But me personally, I'm starting to get enough websites to where I created an Excel Spreadsheet to track, where I am on each for each MOBS step while building my site.

      But the great part about all of this is, once your site is built and where you want it to be on page 1 of Google, just leave it alone and let it earn $ for you.

      All you need to do after that is just keep a check on where your site is ranking. If it happens to drop a few notches, just build a few backlinks to get it back up the scale. But this won't be often.

      In order to track your sites ranking, just go to SEO Book.com ~ SEO Training Made Easy and download the page "Rank Checker". It is 100% FREE!!

      I just track the ranking for my MOBS site domain keyword and all of the inner page keywords simply using this tool. That's all!

      If any page slips a bit, I just build a few backlinks and to push it back up.

      I dont manage mine per se, I use SEO Elite, punch in my keywords, punch in my domain address, and BOOM, let it go to work... only need to check it once a month, if that.. if i see that the graph shows a drop for a page and its keyword, I spend no more than 30 minutes to put out another 1000-2000 links out there.

      Then I can go back to what i was doing - which probably is helping my forex members or playing poker down the casino

      I use a spreadsheet to track all my sites also. Each site has it's own spreadsheet. The sheets include my keywords, the URL for the article on each site, a list of the work to be done for each keyword etc.

      On the page with the list of work to be done I check off the work when it is completed. I also cut and paste a link to the main URL's I have used for site promotion. For example, if I made a Hubpage, I will have a link to it.

      When I want to work on the site, I pull up the spreadsheet, and I can see instantly what I have done. I have my URL's listed for quick copy and paste.

      I got the initial spreadsheet from a course I took and modified it for my needs. If you want the link just PM me.

  • I know I'm going to get seriously hammered here for even bringing it up, but I've got to say this thread seems pretty promotional of your MOBS system. I enjoyed the post a lot and you've given some great information--I even checked out a couple of your videos before you guys even started mentioning the system in the post--and I appreciate you sharing so much, but I was under the impression it wasn't how things were done here.

    Am I missing something? I know a few of you guys are pretty well-known on the WF and mean no disrespect, but I imagine if this was my thread I'd have been called out, so maybe you can clear it up my misunderstanding.

    Let's face it--4 of the guys doing most of the talking here have a signature link to the system being discussed in the posts. Again, if I'm missing something, my apologies. Seems a bit suspect to me but maybe I'm confused.

    Cheers,

      Not at all James, in fact, I appreciate the fact that you brought up this point.

      I originally started the thread with the intention of giving out some useful information regarding what worked (and still works) for me regarding affiliate marketing online.

      Since I utilize this method, my signature link will have reference to my system.

      I am very blessed to have a lot of good friends and students of this system that also affiliate with it, so also have that information in their signatures.

      We have an online family that happens to care a lot about this system and are willing to help to that end.

      That said, we are all online entrepreneurs, and at the end of the day, would like to generate an income online.

      We are all trying to help one another succeed, at least, that's what I try to instill in my students.

      To be honest, they (my friends and students) weren't initially aware of this thread, and I had asked some to come and help me out in answering some questions about the system. I was sick for a couple of days, and didn't want the people in this threads questions to go unanswered.

      If you notice, their answers to questions only started happening later on in the thread.

      This thread was started as a way to help people out who might need some direction in their online business

      Hope this helps,

        Gary, I am not sure that affiliates are allowed to have an affiliate link in their signature to a product that is not theirs on the WarriorForum. I was under the impression that it had to be your own product in the signature line?

        In other words if I am promoting some Clickbank dating product that I did not create, I don't think I am allowed to put it in my sig line on WF. Of course if they were involved in creating it, then it is allowed. Correct me if I am wrong.

          You are not allowed an affiliate link in your sig. You are however, allowed to have a link to a domain you own within your signature.

          That said, I hope you understand that I created this thread to give people a simple road map they can follow to create financial freedom, for free.

          I've seen a lot of ppl use affiliate links in their sigs here and or a link to their site with affiliate links, which is against the TOS of WF.... seems the mods have missed all these hundreds of sigs that i have seen in the last two weeks.

  • Cool Gary,
    Thanks for the thorough response.

    It just seemed to me that the people responding (the same ones with the sigs) were making it a point to state your acronym every single time they posted, which isn't really necessary since variations of this system are all over the place--although surely not the same as yours. But I understand we're all marketers and network here more for just advice, and I also understand that when you're giving so much it's nice to get something back.

    Anyways, I'm not here to start a fuss or interrupt the flow--just think people should keep their eyes open a little, that's all, and it seemed strange to me that no one else had bothered even mention it. But maybe I was reading too much into it--I'm sure there's plenty of people on here who can think for themselves.

    I imagine if it was something to be worried about some people with more experience and footing here would have chimed in. Keep on keeping on.

    Cheers,
    James

        If you read back through the thread, all of these questions have been answered to some degree. They're all built on Wordpress, using Pages instead of Posts. He monetizes them with affiliate products (ClickBank, etc). I'm assuming primarily (if not entirely) digital products. No mention has been made of Commission Junction, LinkShare, etc.

          Hey Scott,

          Wanted to answer this for you and the previous poster.

          You can use this method to market any type of product. Info or physical products work perfectly. So the number of products and niches are endless with Gary's system.

          I am actually working on my first physical product website, and so far it's coming along perfectly using the same steps as you would for info products. You only need to adjust the content writing style just a bit.

          For info products, you want to keep the writing style more along the lines of a "story" or helpful, knowledgeable "soft sell" content. For physical products, you can choose to do reviews, especially if the product is a specific model, etc or choose to do the helpful information content style. Discuss, the benefits of the physical product etc.

          Hope that helps!

          After I paid my programmer $50k for to be done, he came out with some excuse some months later that he had some illness that prevented him from using his hands, as they swelled up or something...

          So, Gary and I are going to do something else instead - and work on something that I'm thinking of calling the "I.M. Machine", not only will it build sites for you, etc, but it will put your site in front of over 10,000,000 potential viewers, it'll take about 12 months of testing and what have you, maybe sooner, all depends on how fast my programmer can code these 13-15 modules inside it.

                  I will echo others and say that the info shared in this thread is worth much more than a lot of wso I have bought to date!! Great business plan!! Thank you for sharing.

                  A couple of questions :

                  - When you need backlinks to a page, typically what type and how many do you get to rank high?

                  - I have some micro niche sites with 3-5 pages and they don't perform that well. Should I add 15 more pages around good keywords or should I start new sites from scratch?

                  - Do you use any special plugins (eg. all in one seo)?

                  Thank you again.

                    Bit like asking how long is a piece of string. Obviously if you are going for an extremely competitive niche, you'll need lots of backlinks. However, if you are following the MOBS system, you'll be going for a niche that isn't too competitive, so if your site needs some backlinks, it may only need a few dozen, eg: blog comments, social bookmarks, article directories.

                    Depends a bit on how competitive the niche you are in and how low they are currently ranking.

                    That said, adding more pages with related keywords is definitely going to help. As to how much, can't say without seeing the details of your site/s.

                    This has been answered previously in this thread.

                    Apart from all-in-one-seo, google-xml-sitemap and pretty-link, that's it.

                    Some people choose to use other plugins for analytics, but they're all optional.

    Another questions I had in regards to internal linking:

    So I have 2 pages and each one of them is targeting a specific keyword. So PAGE 1 is targeting KEYWORD 1 and PAGE 2 is targeting KEYWORD 2.

    When I want to provide a link to PAGE 2 FROM PAGE 1 which keyword do I use as the anchor text? Is it KEYWORD 1 OR KEYWORD 2?

    Hi Loz,

    I am really stuck with something.. If you would kindly take a minute to help me out I would be forever greatful..!

    I am not experienced with making sites with wordpress on its own..I have however used firepow over a year ago to create afew wp sites that did well in fast indexing and rankings in top 10 for under 30,000 allintitle competing sites..

    I am now looking to create 100 sites + for targeted keywords under 50,000 competing sites.. I am looking for a creation/management platform that I can make the sites with and have optimum seo to get them indexed quickly and ranking well.. also monetizing plugins like adsense, physical products, affiliate offers, amazon, ebay, rss, articles, social bookmarking, youtube, yahoo answers etc...I also want to create static homepages for some sites to have a squeeze page also for cpa offers..

    I am stuck between deciding to go with firepow again or wp robot.. because i have used firepow and they have contact, about, privacy pages installed I know they work well and user friendly with good tuitorials on how to optimize sites to the best... but the cost is not cheap $137 monthly compared to wprobot one time payment..

    Can you please suggest anything that will help me in my major dilema i seem to be having in not knowing the best way forward,,

    thanks in advance ,

    Well, actually, my buddy Dan Nickerson who works for Joel Comm, has a application that alllows you to manage your wp sites... I'll get the link for ya when I speak to him next... but i dont think it does what you're wanting it to... my seo website builder pro was going to do all of that,and some... (thats what my programmer was working on about 4 years ago)... it could create like 1000+ blogs insde 30 minutes after filling in all the details, and it drip feeds content, then gets backlinks at the same time. it has some other features in there to make it look like a human is actually behind the site driving content into it and other stuff.

    this app that Im planning to put together is more refined than the seo website builder pro that i was working on, as i've had more time to think about all the things that have changed since then to incorporate that into the software.. there is nothing out there like it on the market....

    I dont have a price tag for it yet, but it's gonna be huge...

    btw, you dont want to have yahoo answers on it, it makes things worse, i've tried products that scrap content directly from yahoo answers and it was a waste of time.

    your best bet, is to just build them manually for the time being, adding posts to wp is not difficult... spend 1-2 hours a day adding articles to ONE site, and set it to future posting dates, to every 2-3 days, then work on the 2nd,and so on...

    all the best

    I just wanted to say that I've paid way more for WSO's and other programs that didn't teach me as much as this forum has. What's funny is whenever someone gives out some free information everyone starts asking a gazillion questions and it's not easy keeping up with them all by yourself. I mean, Gary still has to run his own business right? So for Gary to actually invite some of his students to help answer everyone's questions is a true testament to the kind of person he is. At the end of the day we are all selling something and even if our goal is to give out some free information just to get some credibility to sell our product then so be it. I mean at least you've learned quite a bit before you even think about buying his product and I would much rather purchase a product after someone has proven themselves to me. So take this information and do something with it, I bet you could use the original guidelines, build a site and flip it to pay for the cost of his course.

        IMHO, you should use that money to register your domain names and pay for hosting.

        That's just IMHO.

        I can tell you the keyword competition they explain in this thread for free does work just like said; it's easier for me to see that when I'm building sites not in English; not as many affiliates or adsense CPC, though, wich has been a problem to me with my sites; but with this thread I realized that there are also terms in English with such low competition, if you search for them.

        Lots of people all around this forum are telling how low competition sites DO RANK with almost no backlinks... at most, submitting 3-5 articles to a distribution service.It's just a matter of taking action and keeping it simple.

        ---------

        I am kind of stuck on the writing, thinking I will just outsource this part.

        I was spending so much time trying to tweak some premium designs, trying out plugins, etc., reading e-books, subscribing to memberships, fixing WP hacker attacks, lost many weeks with that and it made each new site take TOO MUCH time even to be duplicated from the previous one.

        Now that I read this thread + combined with another one I hope I saved, I started a .doc "blueprint" guide, it is one page with all the simple steps I need to take based on the free info from the thread + and a few more pages with copy+pasted parts of this thread I wanted to keep at easy reach. I will tape them together, the main page in front of the rest, with sort of my "daily routine" to try putting this system at use with 5 domain names to start off.

        I'll keep that blueprint in my desk, printed with HUGE fonts.


        If I bought any product at this point, it would just take away MUCH more time from actually building the sites. That's probably true to many people, too.

        After I see the first results with what I learned here for free (+ more than $100 on domain names I bought recently based on competition), then I will definitely spend more money with outsourcing more sites and buying more training.

        Will keep you all updated with my efforts.

    I am using the very same technique presented in here and is working, but with a little remark:
    This is what the author of this thread say *the keywords MUST have at least 800 searches per month (exact match)*

    I find out that if a keyword has less than 3000 searches/month, is a wasting time keyword. 3000 searches/month gives you about 100 clickers or less if you are on the first page. What is it under 3000 is a work in vain.

      There is more to be said about the whole question of number of searches. These are decisions you have to take when choosing a niche - if I am promoting a high-ticket item that could sell just one per month, but earn me a couple of hundred bucks in commissions, then a low search volume is fine, indeed I would expect it. If I want to sell 100 of the new Harry Potter book or whatever, I am only going to earn like 60 cents on it, so I want higher volume. To be honest, psychologically, I would rather work on a few high-ticket sales than lots of low-ticket sales! So it's not as simple as just saying high volume is better.

        It is indeed a delicate balance between hunting highly searched keywords (but with high competition) and the little one highly targeted and with few clickers (and potential customers). Both have downsides: competition or little traffic (or no traffic at all).
        Anyway 3000 (what I was recommended) is not a high volume. Between 3000 and 10,000 is reachable with little to medium competition on some good keywords. What is it over 10,000 it is indeed hard to get on first page.
        That's my opinion.
        Anyway, if a website is well optimized for 7-8 keywords/page and has over 20 pages, you can go after both: under and over 3000. You never know what surprises Google give ya. I got fantastic position for huge traffic keywords (where I supposed that I have no chance), while other keywords that I considered valuable to me return no customers at all (even if they are targeted to my niche). So, trying both sides is the wining lottery ticket.
