The URL of the blog hasn't been released, I've been searching for that too! Does anybody know the address and what are the reasons why this is kept secret? Anyway, good job Steve!

Hi dean, I have been trying to send you your link to the guide you bought but I think it may have got stuck in your spam filter. I hope you can access your spam folder because I am out of the office with just an iPhone for a few days..

Dear Steve.

I bought your book about adsense and how little I've seen, looks very good.

Recommended to use a wordpress blog and to my surprise I find that the facts in wordpress blogs are not properly in Internet Explorer.

I had not realized they are wrong because I use firefox and I have no problmes.

I wanted to know if there is a way to overcome this problem because 70% of surfers use Internet Explorer.

The URL to the challenge blog is in his signature and I believe there is a link to the cruise blog from there.

I agree that this thread should be closed down. It was supposed to be about how to earn $100 day with adsense using a blog. It I read this correctly, the money spent promoting this blog was way out of proportion to the orginal plan.

I say that project had mixed results "at best" and proves nothing.

Steve, why don't you just start another "Follow Me" topic and let this one die.:confused:

steve I remember that you have made the main page a static html page. Can you tell me what is the point of making it static. I have a blog and 500 posts and I update it weekly. do you think I should make the the first page static or leave it as it is.

Hi Biz

Actually, I think this project has proved a LOT. Despite the fact that Steve was unable to reach $100 per day within the time frame I still believe it's doable... and from nothing to $20 a day in three months is still impressive... most other warriors would love to be earning that amount per day from a single blog.

As far as I know, Steve has not spent one cent promoting this blog. The money spent has been on article writing services. He stated that he had spent $300 on articles (as the blog stood) and had another $500 worth that were yet to be posted. From that you can infer that he has posted just over one third of the number of articles he purchased. By the time those articles are posted he could well be earning over $50 per day. So the thing is, I believe it's doable... just not in the timeframe originally suggested. It should be noted that Steve also said that another two weeks of earning $20 ($23 actually) would pay for all the articles he had made and after that everything would be pure profit.

Having said that, I do believe that this thread should be closed to further responses. If for no other reason than the fact that people are STILL asking how the challenge went DESPITE the fact that the results are already revealed... I don't think Steve should be expected to answer this question constantly simply because people can't be bothered searching for the answer... do a ctrl F and search for 'Steve Crooks'. Perhaps one last response should be allowed... and that would be a copy of the response where Steve revealed the results.

Julia, is right in what she said... I have no power to close a thread by the way, I am just a mere warrior like the rest of you.

The average is over $20 a day now and I have been concentrating on new projects lately so I haven't been giving the cruise blog much attention. Rest assured, I will be pushing it all the way to $100, it might take over a year but I am in no rush now.

In fact, the big lesson I took personally from this challenge is that it is far better to make purposeful slow strides to a financial goal than it is to sprint there! The important point and I keep saying it, is.. have a plan and take action. The plan for a good, quality site monetized by Adsense is here, the action is up to you.

Re: Follow me to $100 a day in Adsense - A Question, Steve
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Steve,

I just found this thread and have to say kudos to you and congratulations on what I would say to be a great success! Even if you did not achieve the desired result which was $100.00 per day, most of us would be very happy to get $20 a day out of it.
I have been fairly new to Internet marketing and have over 20 blogs out with adsense on most. My adsense income is only about a dollar a day, which is quite disappointing. One day I made over $6.00 which was a fluke.

My question goes all the way back to the domain name choice. If you cannot get a good domain name with the keyword of choice in a .com, does it hurt your SEO to use dashes in between words and still get the keyword phrase of choice in there? I always wonder about dashes in the
domain name and if Google or the other search engines rank those as well.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Adam

Hi this is a great thread. If it does get closed i would suggest to keep it and not destroy it as it has much info for us to follow.

Regarding the domain name with keywords for a .com domain, if you can not find one then go for a .net or .org they will do the trick. Im not sure about dashes in your domain.

For SEO purposes, using dashes doesn't seem to have a significant impact as compared to dozens of other factors. Not having dashes might be a 'tie breaker' if all else is equal but this would be rather rare.

If you want your domain to be brandable, then dashes aren't recommended since they aren't as memorable to your average visitor. However, branding isn't typically useful for Adsense niches.

I like the advice about consistency and a slow-and-steady approach. IMO, this is what too many would-be marketers lack - the patience to move the ball forward a bit at a time. We get sidetracked by hype and try to throw that hail mary pass all the time. Takes valuable time away from the actions we deep down know are what butter the bread: content + links.

I think $0 to $20 in 90 days or so is impressive. That's $600/month. that's $7200/year. That'll make a nice car payment, or pay a big chunk of your mortgage, or monthly groceries. Good job, Steve!

There is a chance that this thread maybe closed soon because it has turned into a bit of a monster and probably off topic from the original challenge that I started at the beginning. If you want to read more there is still my 100 bucks challenge blog which will continue to grow!

However, I would just like to say thanks for all the valuable contributions and questions from so many people. I am very proud of this thread and for every person who has gained something of value from it, it is for you that I am most pleased.

Good luck Steve and hopefully you can get to 100.00 dollars per day... not that you are not making that now but for your efforts and showing everyone interested in starting to make money online

Just a little update on my European cruise blog..

It seems that all my backlink campaigns are starting to pay off. The blog has now risen from the depths of google and is now ranked in the top 30 for my main target keyword phrase "European Cruises" both in the UK and US listings..

Even though it is still not on page 1 of Google yet, the traffic has increased along with my Adsense income as a result. I fully expect to get to page 1 soon and hopefully will see the big increases in income I have been waiting for!

As a marketer who has struggled with Adsense from the begining, I look forward to following your progress on this site, especially attaining your goal of $100/day. I hope you continue to post each step you take in this journey as there are many of us who could learn from you.
Thanks,

Although it failed to meet expectations, I learned a lot from this.

Thanks!

Wow I just read this whole thread. I am new to this forum and hope to be a contributing member. Steve hats off to you for chronicling your project and challenge.

You didn't get to $100 but the information you provided is definitely very useful as well as the people who participated inthe thread with their own posts.

It was a great read! Thanks.

hi steve, firstly a million thanks for all your sharing. I am greatly inspired by your journey from 0 to $20/day in just 90 days. I have also tracked your European cruise blog on google serps from page 7 to currently page 3 (i believe that the blog is yours cos you sign off as steve in one of the page..i shall not say which..

I got a few questions if you could help to clarify..

1. I noticed that you have used ezinearticles written by other authors..you have done it the right way by maintaining the author's bio and links. Does these articles get indexed on the serps with your page rather than ezine's version?

2. I have also noticed that there are articles in different languages with your name and links on other blogs..is this an attempt to gain traffic from different european countries? is it working? are those additional blogs from your own network or they are just other's who have copied your articles?

You are right steve. No one can become rich overnight. Slow and steady steps will lead to a definite success. Its good to know that you are earning averagely over $20 per day. In my opinion even thats a good amount to be earned from adsense.

All the best........

1. The articles in question were written specifically for ezine and so don't actually appear on any of my sites. They are however being used on many other webmaster's sites.

2. This is my experimenting with using a translator plugin on wordpress. I do see some traffic as a result of using it but in very low quantities. I also don't think it has had any impact on my Adsense income either according to my adsense analytics.

steve, thanks for the quick reply. I was referring to the recent articles such as "European River Cruise - A More Affordable Luxury Cruise Vacation" which was written by a Harwood E Woodpecker.

This article is posted on your blog and I have just searched on google and it seems that the article on your blog is listed higher than the original version on ezinearticle.com. I wanted to ask whether posting articles from ezinearticles, or other article directories, will lead to any repercussion from google for duplicate content? And the same time, whether these articles are bringing in any traffic?

thanks again

Jared

Hi Jared, the article you are referring to is actually one of the articles that I have used from Ezine articles that was not written by myself. I was not aware that the version on my blog was higher than the Ezine article listing.. I am happy about that and just proves that the duplicate content myth is just that, a MYTH...

I shall check my stats to see if any traffic is coming from this article.

Okay, thanks for highlighting this article Jared because now that I have just checked my analytics, I noticed that this article is performing reasonably well on my blog!

For the month of April, this duplicate content article had 177 unique visitors and actually earned me a reasonable amount in Adsense with respect to the visitor count.

This proves beyond any doubt that using articles from directories is a GOOD strategy to use when done correctly. Thanks Jared for bringing this article to my attention!
