How I made my income this year (so far) with no PPC and No Linkbuilding

Those warriors that know me, will know that I am not joking.

want to show you how I do it. What I have NOT done is

SEO
Linkbuilding
Article stuff
PPC
Adsense
CPA (though I do make $$ from CPA, though not from this method)

So what is it then?

I am a product affiliate.

I work with eBay, Amazon and Overstock and put up websites to display their products.

Ok you have probably heard that before and even tried it and didnt get anywhere. Me too, then I discovered the trick...

1 - I would buy domains that already have authority. Meaning instead of getting fresh domains and spending all day linking them up, I just buy domains for cheap that already have all the backlinks. See http://www.tdnam.com

2 - I use Wordpress and Common Themes so my sites are not footprinted

3 - I put up some filler content on each page so google gives love to my sites

4 - After the filler content I use a plugin to blast up to 100 affiliate products from a feed so the content of the feeds actually becomes more content to be indexed

5 - I do LOTS (sometimes thousands) of posts per sites

6 - I automate and put up LOTS (dozens) of sites per day.

7 - Some sites make it, some dont' - but at the end of the day I profit.

And it works. Really Really works.

Happy to answer any questions you have regarding my system in this thread, Or can check my Sig Link (yeah the one that says not to click) too.

    Hi Greg,

    Glad for your success. How do you get the content for the posts? Do you scrabe them from other sites (is that the correct term?)?

    Thanks.

    Your story is eerily familair, I was a business development in Asia up until 3 months ago. All the traveling was breaking up my marriage, so i quit and having been trying IM for the last 3 months. Learned a lot but not making any money. Your system looks OK. Can you tell me what your average customer is making using this?

      I prefer the term "syndicate"
      but then I do something that make it unique. One of those techniques is to put it thorough a translator (either automated or manually) so you got english-french-english

      and when it gets back to english it is still readable, but slightly different wording is used.

      me too, and I ended up kicking my old job to the curb and just staying here. Make more like this anyways...

      Maybe some of my clients will pop in here shortly as I know we have a few warriors who are earning in our midst. But from what I have seen, after 1 1/2 months we have many people on track to earn about 1-2k in October just by following the system.

      Its all residue income and it just builds on itself. (meaning the income will keep compounding and increasing )

        WOW!

        That one tip just opened my eyes. I had not thought of using something like a double translation routine to spin an article.

        I just took one of my ezinearticles and went over to G language tools and did just what you said...english to french, then french to english and guess what...

        A completely new article, says the same thing, just reworded! This is the best free tip I've picked up in a while, and you sir deserve a big THANKS!

          I just tried that with my ezinearticle and it did not change at all except for maybe a few words. So it didn't work for my article.

            try doing english -> thai -> english

            or other combos (even 3 way)

            though you have to take care to maintain readability if you start using more obscure languages.

              It would be interesting to see people's experiences in using the translator in various language combinations to create unique articles. Obviously, the perfect combination would result in an article that shows high uniqueness while still being readable. I would love to know which combo works best: English to Thai to English? English to French to German to English? English to Japanese to Swahili to English? Only experimentation will tell.

                en|es|en is generally the best in my experience as it makes it mostly unique and leaves it readable.

                once you start getting away from basic langauges it becomes more hard to read.

                one cool thing is one way translation. So you can actually just translate to Japanese and leave it like that and of course Monetize with Amazon Japan.

        Great point!

        I think that's KEY here...

        "automation"

        and

        "right formula"

        because...

        I believe most people are struggling to make even small amount of money online is because whatever they are doing is not easily repeatable, scalable and systematic.

        Truth is... many-many things actually *work* online and can be profitable.

        But it's about picking one plan (that is systematic, can be repeated and automated as much as possible) and just keep repeating it over and over again.

        The beauty of this is

        Once things start to work... you just outsource the stuff that can be repeated and leave it on auto-pilot from here onwards.

        This is what successful rich internet marketers have in common..

        Their systems are different

        but

        they are repeatable, scalable and consistent...

      The details of my SEO is that there is no details.

      I win through quantity on the long tail. meaning I do NOT target keywords, but rather target entire niches.. (like Garden supply) and then generate a bunch of keywords that are the right combination of specific/broad in order to pull bunches of product listings with my plugins.

      So each keyword becomes a post - and instead of spending my time optimizing and backlink building/seo - I just do more and more and more posts (and even automate this)

      and eventually some of my pages catch in the long tail search results just by the sheer quantity of it.

      And it earns well.

I may have to give your tool set a spin to see how it performs, especially since you're offering a free trial and your monthly cost after that seems to be quite reasonable.
      Glad you like the sales page. Our team will be very happy to hear that.

      For the Adept Mage toolkit, you can in theory do everything manually and on your own. Though we are gunning for automation so it may help to spend time more efficiently.

      For getting my affiliate listings I use something called Affiliate Mage, which pulls products based on a seed keyword from amazon, ebay or overstock. though there are a few others that do similar things with varying prices and features.

      I also use content mage to generate content (so I dont have to grab manually) and posting mage to do bunches of posts at once.

      Other simple yet useful plugins are XML Sitemaps and the Random Sidebar Posts Plugins. Both give the search spiders lots of food for grabbing all your content.

      me too, but SEO and backlink building just gives me a blaring migraine. Thats how I figured out this system in the first place, I basicly kept banging at the CPU until I figured a way to earn without ever having to touch that stuff.

      Incidently my best earning sites are actually on domains that already had alot of these "important things" done for them when I bought them.

    I've just started to pick up existing PR domains but more for creating a link building network for SEO. Any good tips for preserving PR (I keep same registrar, use Archive.org to mimic old title tags on some existing pages, put up wordpress with common template, use wp-o-matic for filler content).

    Sounds like you are doing something similar, except keyword in domain is probably more important for your approach, along with PR/backlinks/traffic, yeah?

    Do you focus on PR1-3's? If you're paying say $15 for GoDaddy Auction, plus $10 for domain registration, you have to have a good success rate to compensate for all the $35 strike outs?

    I look forward to your feedback.

      Keyword is not important in my approach It is the domain.
      I look at PR as a starting point, but moreso look for age and REAL looking backlinks. Not ones that are the obvious result of a linkbuilder (because if I can tell, they can tell)

      Recreating Content is good, the actual SAME content is better. Can use Archive or Warrick.

      I also look for sites that have NEVER been owned by an affiliate. Because if an affiliate owned them and dropped em, then there is probably a good reason.

      Re: good success rate. My winners net me anywhere from $5-$1000 per month. So its almost always a win no matter what even if there are a few duds that slip in there.

      I also generally buy the $5 ones- unless I see a gem in the $10 auctions. (i just generally dislike auctions)

      somewhere in the hundreds, however about %70 of my income comes from my top 10 sites

      with the hundreds others producing the other %30

      but to find those top performers I of course had to put up lots of sites and somehow, the winners came forth.

      So using this strategy, you cannot limit yourself to 10 or 20 sites.. you really got to go for it to sift the diamonds.

      Now after some experience I get better at picking winners, but still its an ongoing process.

      You are a genius! Congratulations on your success. This thread really opened my eyes especially to the article spinning idea using the Google language tools. Where do you usually get the content? How many sites do you make in a week's time?

        Thanks for your reply.

        Content can come from many sources
        however I believe the Terms of Service of most Article Directories allow you to copy and paste their content.

        If I put my mind to it, I can put up 10 leisurely in a day (though I normally get distracted lol). I use automation now, so most of my time per site is actually spent picking the domains and arranging the keywords.

        The actual act of putting up the site and all the posts only takes a few minutes with automation.

        I will then spend a few minutes sculpting the front page (because google frequently manually reviews homepages, but not inner pages) and making sure that everything is in order before moving on to the next.

          Is Content Mage and Posting Mage plugins included in your toolkit? So what does content mage actually do? Will it populate our sites with the content we need to build our sites and pass any sort of Google review?

            Content Mage and Posting MAge are part of the Master Membership which is opening again on Nov 5th

            There are some video demos on the Adept inside to see it in action.

            but what Content Mage does is takes a Seed keyword from within your post and turns it into content.

            Posting Mage then puts up XXXX posts with a click

            They are seeded so 1 keyword = 1 post

            It will make better sense after watching the videos.


            re: google review. What I normally do is set as static and manually sculpt the front page as %90 of the time, the reviewer only looks at the home page. So if that looks good, then the rest of the site gets a passing grade.

          What sort of things are you doing to the homepage to make it so that it will pass a manual review by Google? I noticed in your videos when you ran some of the articles through the translator the wording was off or had a some wrong grammer. For the homepage post (which I believe you make it static) do you go through the content and make sure it reads well and fine tune it compared to the internal posts?

          So ultimately with your system you are getting traffic for all those long tail keyword combinations that are either in the content of your article in the post or from the product listings embedded in those posts? So pretty much for any of these long tail keyword combinations you are either ranked on the first page of Google or near the top of the SERPs correct?

          Have you considered backlinking to any of the keywords that you notice you get decent traffic even though you might be at say at position #6 on the first page? Just pointing a few backlinks could move you up to the top 3 or even the top spot to really boost your traffic.

            The Homepage Post, I will usually write myself or get a PLR. So it is %100 readable.

            I just do the post and a picture and leave it as-is. I make this actually a "Page" and set it as static within the WP Dashboard.

            The other posts I really dont pay attention to much. They gleam long tail traffic, lots of it for the actual product titles. I almost NEVER rank 1st for a term, or even near the top. Most of my results are somewhere between 6-40 in the rankings. but have such sheer quantity, that it works out. Also by the time the people get to my listings, they are usually a determined buyer, so the conversions are pretty good

            I forgot what settings i used in the video. But if you use en|es|en should be pretty good.

            re: backlinking. Its a great idea and would probably help out alot. I have never done it and do well, so I suppose that it can only improve your results.

              Thanks for the answers.

              So the homepage has no affiliate links from ebay, AZ, etc.? Just a unique article with one of your keywords and an image. Do you determine which keyword to use for the homepage or it doesn't matter? Is it better to use a broad term (i.e. laptops, camping, etc..) that encompasses the whole niche to write for the homepage or a long tail keyword (i.e. hp laptops, camping tents, etc.)? For the rest of your posts do you always have an article posted (with image) followed by links to Ebay, AZ, and Youtube video?

                No affiliate links on the homepage. I just make sure the article on there 'looks good' and would fit in.

                Regarding the layout of the content/links, we actually have template on the dashboard that can edit to do custom placements of the various sources of content

        Is this a blackhat type of thing. You provide a keyword list and the system churns out pages and pages containing those keywords? Have you been banned using this method?

          not at all. It pulls content from legit sources. Actual real valuable content - not MFA keyword stuffing junk.

          Never banned, though sometimes sites lose indexing, its just the nature of the google dance - I maybe lose 1 in 8 sites to the google monster, however these sites can still catch and earn well in Yahoo and Bing who dont seem to be as picky. I even have one site that had been deindexed by google for over a year, but pulls almost 1k a month just from Yahoo and Bing traffic. so go figure.

          It is a system that works via targeting the long tail in quantity and providing valuable content and profit generating affiliate links.

          Does that properly answer your question?

            Hi Greg,

            Thanks for your reply. I would like to believe your method is on the gray/greyhat side of things. With the precautions you mentioned in your ebook, it should minimize the deindexing or banning from Google. Anyway, I found your ebook very useful and I have subscribed to your membership to view the videos and try out the tools. If this turns out profitable, then I will even continue even after 60 days.

            BTW, can you also PM me the demo site?

            This system sounds awesome (and for those who are considering checking it out further, I highly recommend checking out Greg's free videos...definitely good stuff there.) The one thing that's still confusing me, however (and I'm sure this is just ignorance on my part)... is that once Content Mage has pulled in a boatload of "new" posts and has backdated them randomly across your blog, doesn't this trigger some kind of red flag with Google? I mean, a week ago the site was indexed by Google via sitemap.xml with 20 posts and then the next week, there are 5,000 posts with posting dates going back 2 or 3 years? (I'm concerned that this would set off a bomb with Google resulting in immediate sandboxing or de-indexing, not to mention the ethical considerations of backdating thousands of posts.)

            Again, I'm sure this is because I'm not fully understanding the process correctly. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

              Its a good concern. We generally recommend to start with 500-1000 posts and wait till you get some indexing and ramp up..

              though that being said, I have also slammed up domains and did 30k posts off the bat and got like 8k of them indexed and made a few bucks.
              (though I am the first to admit this is risky due to points mentioned above)

              There is no "definite" with Google. They really are half-blind. You just pull off what you can while it works.

      All I can say is I have Quite ALOT of sites. My top 10+ sites earn me about %70 of my income. Where as the countless others add up to the other %30.

      The trick is that you don't know which sites are going to be winners and which are not. So you need to have the gumption and tools to put up lots. If you handicap yourself with tools that have limits or caps, you limit your income and most likely will not succeed.


      So I started doing this about 2 years ago. At the end of my first year I was making enough to support myself in a basic lifestyle, so I quit that and went at the Mage full timeish and started really developing the Mage and applied massive automation and well... the last year has sorta been like a dream!

        thank you for the reply. I guess it's a numbers games as with most IM ventures. Saying that...I built 22 Amazon sites on a .info extension using a wordpress plugin that scrapes content depending on the keyword.

        I built that in August without much effort. Each site probably had about 12 post as I was intending to flip.

        I just checked my Amazon account and it has made me $16.68 and only half of those sites had my Tracking ID. Again this is with NO promotion except the initial site submissions, rss, all in one seo etc Literally set and forget.

        I didn't put much effort into those site yet it made money on autopilot.

        I can definately say autoblogging works. Has kidna reignited my interest in set and forget sites.

        Thanks

          If you made that much on Amazon, I bet you could have made 10x as much with EPN.

                  Hey folks,

                  I was one of Greg's beta testers for his system and I am more than pleased with the results. I created a review here: (http://www.warriorforum.com/internet...ew-thread.html) that gives my take on it. I didn't know this thread was here until just now.

                  Some have talked about "off-color" marketing. I am NOT a black hat or grey hat marketer - white hat all the way. Since I don't use off-color marketing techniques, I was a little concerned at first. BUT, I have discovered that with this system you can be completely white hat and still earn a top notch living. As you will see when you visit my review post I am set to make over $1000 this month with the mage system and it is ALL white hat.

                  I do not use the translation technique that Greg uses ... and I am still making money. I honestly believe I will be making 5k per month by the end of my full year with using this system.

                  That's when I'm going to retire because that's all I need with what I already have. Oh happy day!

                  Linda

    Greg, thanks very much for posting this. I This is very similar to what I am doing although it is not as sophisticated. The results I achieved per site were very similar to yours. I did put up sites built from product feeds on hundreds of domains. I am not sure though that the built-in SEO effects of expired domains are really that great but it certainly saves a lot of time in terms of website promotion. However, I found it very labor intensive. At its peak in 2006, I was able generate more than 5K income but have let it slip since then. This is because I no longer have full time staff working for me.

    Now that my core business has been repeatedly attacked by Google, I have started to concentrate on it again. I am interested in whether

    1. You hire staff or VA
    2. Do you use dedicated servers, it so what are their configurations.
    3. Do any of your sites get de-indexed completely by Google.

      Hi Greg,

      You talked about some launch in Nov. 5. What is that? How do I get in? Is there a trial period too.

      Salamat too. Hope you are enjoying your internet lifestyle in Thailand. I too am dreaming to automate things in this business. But unfortunately, most of the efforts to execute my plans are too time consuming even with outsourcing as I still have to manage people and check their outputs.

      But if your system promises to be a one-click operation or several clicks and you get a money system in place, then I am sold.

      1 - I have NEVER EVER let anybody touch my sites. I do have a content writer that I use to experiment with a few alternative methods, but the bulk of my sites (%95) are all just me. The fact is that the Mage is your VA.

      2 - I have LOTS of servers actually. Lots of different cPanel shared hosts. And a few dedicated. I use cPanel x3 and this configuration
      Though I did start it all and get to a fair income with just a $5 month shared host.

      3 - yeah de-indexing happens. I am probably one of the worlds foremost authority on sites getting de-indexed and I have cut down my de-indexing rate drastically over the last year by applying a few tricks. (hint NEVER use Google Analytics - those buggers) But the fact of the matter is that its part of the game. Even if your site gets deindexed by G, then Yahoo and Bing will still send it traffic after they kick in (takes them a couple months normally) I have one sites that is deindexed by Google for over a year, but still earns around 1k a month just from Yahoo/Bing Traffic.

      This is true. I know that some people are using the tools in question to do Adsene sites, or even put up Theme related CPA/Clickbank sites in bulk as well and monetizing with banners and links.

      This will have to be investigated further as I have not had a chance to fully investigate these tactics.

        I knew it all along...

        Now I don't use Google Analytics anymore too, because I have noticed that my sites kept dancing up and down depending on some visitor factors or whatever... I now use a different tracking system and have noticed more consistency in traffic and rankings!

        I have heard the same from some SEO veterans too and they basically are pretty sure that Google will use that data coming from your stats in their favor (although they might not admit it)

          I have statistically verified this over quite a LOT of sites and independent testing environments (meaning no crossover of accounts etc..). The stats proved true. Time and time again. Sites with GA got deindexed at about 3 times the rate as sites without GA.

          It doesnt mean that you will get deindexed by using it. Many affilaites do fine. But its just another stat to stack in your favour.

                We will setup your first Mage site if you like. So really the only technical thing you have to do is buy a domain name and then use Word Wizard to research keywords (you just input a starting keyword and click a button)

                and then of course paste the keywords and click. then you are done.

                You can then repeat this for dozens of domain names if you want lots of sites.

                Of course this is the simple method. If you wanted to get more advanced, you can fully look under the hood and get crazy.

                But we give you both options.

    Hi Greg,

    Have you also tried using AdSense (I know that you wrote that you only do product marketing)?

    Don't you infringe on copyrights when syndicating content from other sources and then rewrites it? Do you keep the Author box from these sources?

    Is it correctly understood that you are focused on quantity here? How do you create a nice index for all your pages, so that your website looks nice, etc.?

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Thomas

      Hi ThomasTe

      Those are some intelligent questions

      1 - I have dabbled in Adsense - but it is not my expertise. My understanding is a few people have used the Mage to put up lots of Adsense sites and do quite well. They are some of the non-vocal type so I am not sure if they will pop in here or not. You can actually use the MAge to make Frankenstiened versions of the XFactor method if you like that.


      One of our other Mages described a stragety to us the other day where he didnt even bother with eBay or anything else, but actually generated a bunch of content article posts and monetized them with CPA or Clickbank offers. My useage of the Mage aside, it is a wicked mass content and site generation tool. The best I have ever seen . (I made it because I tried the rest and they all came short)

      2. - You can keep the author box. rewriting the content is optional.

      3 - Re: nice looking sites. We put alot of forethought into this. I think that you will find that Mage Sites are designed with aestethics in mind. (we like beautiful things) there are numerous tricks that we do to achieve this that we wont go into here.....however... lets allow this screenshot speak for itself. It is a post from a blog that has about 5000 posts and took me 10 minutes to setup. I set it up I think around August 1st and since then (2 1/2 months) it has netted me about $110 total from organic traffic

      (i also have sites that do me in the thousands, but that is getting into some advanced theory)

      Use autoblogging techniques like this with Adsense [b]only[b] if you don't mind risking losing your Adsense account.. Seriously, this is not the way to build sites with Adsense on.

      I started with a $5 a month shared host and a $40 plugin that was similar to affiliate mage.

      I built the sites manually and started earning and learning and then subsequently applied automation.

    This method is very cool. I was looking at other autoblogging plugins when I saw Greg's post in the War Room. I'm not crazy about autoblogging, but this is different.

    I also think the beauty of this is the ability to create huge sites fast. Everyone wants to know how to monetize it, but, to me, that's secondary. I'm trying sites with different methods, and you can, in fact, do anything you want to monetize it. You could even sell you own product if you wanted to.

        Sorry, but $500 is too much. That's considerably higher than competing autoblogging and product feed plugins. I'll have to pass on this and cancel the 'adept' membership too which is pretty useless without the automation tools for someone who's already familiar with the process.

        I was under the impression from your sales page that the membership would cover the tools. I think your sales page is somewhat misleading and you should make this clearer.

      As far as I can tell his plugins grab a bunch of articles from article directories, instantly run them through a language translator (twice) so they become a little unique and then re-post them.

      It's basically auto-blogging with a tinge of unique content (and domains that may be 2+ years old w/backlinks...that's the key).

          How I define it??? lol, thats exactly what they are, cause from what I've heard about your "Mage Sites" system, WPRobot plugins do the same exact thing as far as pulling article, vids, amazon product, cb products, yahoo answers, ebay products, and flickr images and running them all through a translator.

          I am curious about the aged domain though. I've heard of people buying aged domains, and after they set up their site on the domain, the pr and links disappered. Have you experienced this on any of your blogs? also, with working with an aged domain, how fast do you see your sites being indexed? How soon do you start seeing traffic?

      It is possible and many people use Adsense. I just don't have the knowledge regarding Adsense to implement it effectively. My specialty is physical product affiliates.

      If someone already knew alot about making Adsense sites and used that knowledge in Combination with the Powers of the Mage, they may do very well.

      But re: autoblogging. I suppose maybe i just dont like the association of the word. because before I made the Mage, I tried "Autoblogging" and i didnt make any money.

      So there must be something different in there going on?

      Things dissapear sure, but I dont pay attention much. I work on a Quantity business model. Meaning I have a formula that has a good success ratio, so I just put up as MANY as I can and dont really look back.

      Generally I need 3-4 weeks for traffic and earnings to really start to kick in and be noticeable. Though in lucky cases you can see it the first week.

    Greg,

    I'm trying to get my head straight about this system so... Mage system benefits are:

    autoinstall of the domain(s) (could be a mass of domains) concurrent with WP installed with all its plugins activated, "front end" article content that has been translated for some uniqueness, "back end" keyword product posts done all at once or keyword posts set at intervals. Plus mage gets ebay keyword listings or just ebay keyword categories? Is that pretty much it in a nutshell?

      thats pretty much it. Domains are not "mass installed" (though that is a great idea we could possibly do later) you have to do each one at a time though the entire thing from configs to posts is done in a click.

      Content and Product/Keyword listings are mashed up so that...

      You enter a keyword and that keyword seeds BOTH the article content AND the eBay etc... listings.

      So you have content targeted towards your keyword.

      We actually create all the posts in one go. So if you do it backdated then they are just there, if you forward date then they fire off as a "scheduled post"

      each post has a mashup of content and products all seeded off the same keyword

    I started using Mage System when it started in beta. I am probably on the low end of the spectrum with only around 7 epn only sites. These sites are earning around 5 bucks aday and that is just setting them up and leaving them alone. His system works.

    As far as adsense goes I have been experimenting with some different combos of programs and come up with a hybrid way doing things with mage strategies and some other programs strategies combined and have raised my adsense from 6 aday to 20+ aday and climbing in around 30 days.

    Gregs program is a great way to start earning cash and i would recommend it to anyone.

    Jump on it you will learn tons of things his instructions are really easy to follow

    Hey Greg,
    Cool system. Definitely interested in checking it out. One quick question: I've got about 40 (unsuccessfully monetized) blogs that all get around 50-100 daily visitors each. Incidentally, they are all tied into Google Analytics. Since Google now knows these sites exist, is it too late to close the barn doors by deleting those Analytics accounts or can I recoup their value by cutting the cord to Analytics?

      Like I said, cases will vary, my data is based on aggreate experiments and percentages. With regards to your quesiton. my *guess* is you can close the barn door..

        Greg,

        So after reading your ebook about this system, then your first step is to find the good domains before doing any sort of keyword/niche analysis correct?

        When you find the right domain name do you then try to target the niche that is somewhat related to the domain name or not? Or it doesn't matter?

        Say you find a domain name that is for example "wwwdotinsuranceguidedotcom." Do you then make this into an insurance site or switch it over to some other niche?

        I guess what I"m trying to get at is even when you are looking for domain names do you need to focus on what words make up that domain? Does it have to be a bit related to product niche that you will eventually target?

        Up to now I look for the profitable keywords/niches and then look for find a domain that is available with that keyword to target.

          I do it backwards. Most important thing is the domain, more so the backlinks, age and indexing.

          I can makeup whatever niche I want after the fact ... for instance if I buy the domain

          johndoe.com

          I can name my site
          John Doe Industrial Supply


          get the idea. Power domain first, keywords and niches second.

      These are all good, but they dont have ready made RSS feeds. Meaning its alot more work to get their products into place with our methods of site generation.

      Popshop can in theory integrate with a little hacking,as our system is modular and each component can work independently of one another . An experienced user could in theory hack Popshops Dynamic feed/API into our Posting Mage mass posting engine for a nice marriage.

      Thomas,

      I am a Mage user and my tests for translation are running about 35 to 44% difference and very readable with the option you chose. There are several different results depending on the language you select and the number of passes. Most readable is en|fr|en and en|es|en and that runs on average 35% difference and very readable.

      Look for a new thread from me soon on duplicate content and how to deal with Google on that important issue. There's much more to duplicate content than all the rumor mills indicate. But if you know what to do, its not so hard to come out on top

      regards

      What Jan said above is correct (he is our Dupe content expert!)

      also to do a quick manual spot check you can just use
      Google Translate to do it manually and then paste into a online dupe checker
      to get a good feel for what is going on

    Hi Greg,
    thanks for your tips.
    One question : why google desindex your websites if the content is unique (with the translate en>fr>en) and the design is nice? It's the manual reviewers that think the sites are not good or what?

    Thanks

      lol, because life cant be THAT easy now can it? They figure it out somehow, maybe look at the other pages for whatever reason. . I dont really worry about it to much. My business model is built on quantity.

      So go get your expert opinions on the Adsense subject. I am sure people have lots to say on this subject The tools are just there to use as you please.

      I hear people are also cleaning up by putting in CPA or Clickbank offers around mass generation of themed topics.

        Yeah, life is hard . With a model like that, you must have some advance on the reviewers. If you stop to create sites, your empire start to decline no? Yeah i am too pessimist, and i think too much, i know

          Not necessarily. Actually people know that once sites get settled into the good graces of the googles, then they generally will stick unless something drastic changes (this aside from regular google dances which effect all types of sites regardless.) Its more for increasing and compounding

          lol... no thinking allowed. .

          but really, I dont have all the pieces of the puzzle, but have learned enough to make my way so far. I just know how to spend my time. There are 1000 different directions to do or things to think about or consider.

          My method is to just laser focus on the things that I deem to be important to my success, and basically just ignore other things. Its how I keep myself focused and successful without the time drains that kill so many endeavors.

          For instance we can take linkbuilding for example. I *know* linkbuilding is a great thing to do, but I just have never bothered and really don't even know much about it.

          Does that make linkbuilding a bad strategy? No way. I hear its great. Its just not something I focus on because in my method, I have calculated that I get highest ROI when my time and resources are spent putting up more quantity and just focusing on the automation and sheer numbers

          It is definitley not the only way and not for everybody, but it has worked for me and other who have adopted the system.

          Hope that helps/

            ho, i see. I understand better now with your post when you say that you write yourself your first-page content and stuck it as a static page. The goal is to say, "hey google guy, my homepage is cool and useful no? Dont look more .

            I will try your method, with an outsourced article for homepage (you see clearly my low skills in english writing )

            Yeah, my biggest problem, i have learned too much things, i know too much methods that works. I dont know on what to focus now.

            It's the biggest problem when you dont have your step by step plan to apply everyday, you look at every course and see so much contradictions and you dont know what to do.

            You just do what i want to do and like others people say, it's better to do something even if it's not perfectly done than just do nothing.

      Sure.. When using Adsense these days you need to be very aware of the content on your pages to ensure you are meeting the Adsense TOS. By creating a truckload of pages automatically you have no easy way of knowing whether what you are doing is within the rules. People do it and get away with it but lots of people don't as well. You need to ask yourself whether it is a risk you are willing to take.

    The thing I'm thinking about is violating copyrights. If someone created an article they own the copyrights.

      Do me a favor and go to EZA, GA or articlesbase.

      With the SUBMISSION an author gives permission that his content is re-published! (As long as his resource boxes and links stay intact!)

      Talking about autoblogging and scraped content from EZA, Goarticles and at the same time talking about "copyright violation" is absurd!

      Please read the TOS of those article directories....re-publishing is one MAJOR purpose of article directories, it is to be expected and always implicated if you submit an article.

      If you, as a writer are worried about your copyright and dont want your article to appear anyhwere else: An article directory would be the LAST PLACE ON EARTH where you should put your writings!

    Ive heard of this before. This way inst a new method. Its pretty much common sense. Alot of people forget to renew there domain names and they pretty much fall off but the backlinks dont. My question was how do you know which domains have a hight backlink count.

        Can these sites be flipped or is that a separate course or license? Please elaborate if you have a moment.

        Also, I want to add that I just joined the Adept Mage Membership and find the layout and training very impressive.

    Hi Greg,

    Before I sign up to your membership, do we have to pay for the mage tools separately? I was reading one of the posts and said the tools will cost almost 500 dollars. Also, how much would it cost me to get my first mage site up. Please let me know as I'm interested.

    Thanks,

      That will be a separate license, that is not available just yet as it entails a whole different approach and modification of the software (right now you will have to give them the plugins with the flip and that wont work due to licenseing restrictions)

      After we get this launch cycle finished this is top on our list to look at.

      Aside from the cost of the tools, each site requires a domain, usually a $5 domain which is $5+ reg fees and some shared hosting (but hosts can handle lots of domains)

      Thanks,

    Steve, I really doubt that Adsense is going to be displeased with these pages. They basically consist of articles, YouTube videos, and Yahoo Answers - just like thousands of other Adsense sites. I see nothing in them that would go against Google's terms of service. They are not like the autogenerated sites of a few years ago that scraped search engine listings or created nonsense pages. They are real articles and they keep the author's resource box. If you think about it, they are no different than what you would find on an article directory. I can't see why Google would be concerned about them.

      This is very true/

      Now there may be *other ways to earn on the net. However I never figured them out.

      Winning Formula + Automation/Replication = Payday

      That is about it.
      People need to first decide why they are in the IM game? Are they putting up these sites to earn and pay their mortgage and feed their family? Or are they trying to "create meaning in the world"

      I have "Created meaning" lots of time in the world. I have even wrote two unpublished fictional books am part of the town council and like to play the guitar. But when you have a family to support and simply putting up the same website over and over makes you more money than your day job could ever hope, then its just a no-brainer... at least for me.

    I must give you a HUGE...."Thank You" for your free advice and blueprint to making over $100K with no PPC & no linkbuilding techniques.

    More importantly, I am super-enthusiastic about the "content mixer/translator" idea (English-French-English).
    This tidbit was a real gem & It truly works like a charm!

    Many Thanks and please.....keep us informed of your future endeavours.

    One bit of advice to folks, don't try to get in ebay affiliates via hubpages, she denied me for that years ago.

    There are a lot of good names that come up for sale via tdnam if you can get lucky to get it for cheap before someone else does.

    Very interesting twist!! What on avg do you pay for such sites?

    And what do you use to create the blogs? And do you use autoblog plugins or how do get the thousand of pages on the blogs?

    I am doing *basically* the same thing, but not on old domains...i spend a lot time SEO and ranking them, some with GOOD success. There's nothing better than wordpress and nice themes, IMHO. The idea with getting established domains is really great!!

    (hint NEVER use Google Analytics - those buggers)
    hu? I have been deindexed twice, but it was because of stupid things i did and not because of analytics. (Hint: NEVER autoblog to twitter from your WP blog )

    By the way...i am especially interested in your methods and criteria to check for backlinks and authority to select a domain to purchase. What makes a "good" domain in your opinion? Where do you purchase?

    The other stuff is relatively clear to me. VERY interesting thread...how could i miss that...

    Hi GeorgR,

    Thanks for your reply. The thing is not about re-publishing but editing existing articles. That's another alley.
    Copyright is always there, you can just have permission to republish, but not necesarrily edit, which is why I asked.
