So, what exactly are Sniper sites?

9 replies
Hello Warriors,

Onto something today. Planning to actually work, for a change

For once, I seem to be interested in Google Sniper sites (not that I didn't like the method before or don't think it's any good). It just caught my attention+interest very recently.

So, what exactly is a Google Sniper site?

Here's my understanding of what it could be... One keyword (low-medium search, low competition), EMD (exact match domain), 6 articles targetting the keyword, some SEO/link-building. Is that correct?

Also, how are these (Google Sniper) kind of sites affected by the recent Google Panda algo change/updaate?

      Use the search function - look for the keywords as thread title - and find the original WSO for the product (by George Brown). There are over 240 posts in that thread - about every answer you could want.

      The light bulb (info) is there - you have to turn on the switch.

        I have built my business around micro blogs much like what Google Sniper is all about. I'll tell you that the info in his course is top notch and should go a long way in getting you started but just don't buy into the "don't need any backlinks" hype.

        Any time you're planning on driving traffic through SEO you're going to need to do a little work. That's one thing I hate about these products..."build a site in 2 hours that rakes in $1,000s"...it isn't quite that simple.

        Cheers and Good Luck,

        James

      This type of method is sort of how I got started.

      You are correct on the basics of a "Sniper site"

      What you probably don't know though is the exact methods to finding a long tail keyword for this type of site. Also what sort of syndication marketing it takes to get the site to rank.

      This sort of site will make you money but it is very hard work because you have to do so much SEO for one site and you have to have at least 20+ sites to make any real money.

        With respect, how much money is real money in your opinion?

        What other method would you choose if you had to make that amount of 'real money' with just 3 websites? Thanks for your thoughts/views on this, in advance.

          I would consider $5,000+ month real money. That is about the point when you can IM full time. Also if you're making that much it is usually fair to say that you know what you're doing.

          If I had to make $5000+ a month with 3 Websites just starting out I would build authority sites one at a time spend all my time with SEO and learning Paid traffic methods. After about 2/12 years you would get there with 3 sites. This is why I don't build authority sites often.

          With sniper sites you can usually make around 200-300 a month with each site. Granted you need to put in a lot of work for each site with articles and blogs and other SEO things but work hard and you will get there.

          Another thing with sniper sites is every step of your work has to be perfect. There are many things that can go wrong and you don't have the time to work on one site for to long.

            There is a lot of truth in what you are saying. I bought the latest Sniper Program and is pretty tedious. They say you should buy the actual CB product and then build the site. Keywords are my biggest hurdle.

              I have overviewed both google sniper manuals before. It is great information for a beginner. It highlights the steps to creating a micro niche site.

              With that said though, It is only Highlighting some of the essential steps.

              It is like this: Lets say there are 10 steps to building a successful sniper site, and 5 sup steps in each of the main 10 steps. Google sniper talks about the first 10 steps but only 1 or 2 of the essential sup steps that you need to make it work. There is so much more to finding a good keyword and building backlinks than what google sniper tells you about.

              If you are to follow just the google sniper method you will probably rank on page 5-10 on google or if you do make it to page one you will only really be getting around 20 visitors a month do to a low competition key word with low traffic.

              Trust me George dose much more than what he puts in google sniper. The thing is he dose not do all the hard work he has a team of marketers that do all of it for him and he just overviews all of it and puts in the finishing touches. He is a good guy i think but he is also very smart and knows how to sell a product. Google sniper was meant for beginners and if you put in all the steps needed most beginners would be completely lost. Plus the product would not sell as well because it would not be a get rich quick product that all beginners seem to look for.

              This all dose not mean i do not thing Google Sniper is a good product. It is an awesome product for beginners and a good place to start if you looking into affiliate marketing. But you will need to learn more after you have let the basic steps of GS sink in.

    1 keyword with very few content, usually between 1-10 articles and also with Exact match Domain...
