Hey Steve

I have a question regarding sites like this. It's similar to the question asked above by kevin but a little different

Once you have your sixty articles online and traffic is coming in... are comments viewed as updates to the blog by search engines. In other words, will frequent comments alone keep the blog in the spotlight with search engines or do you need to keep making regular posts?

I am hoping for an average of around 20 - 30 visitors per day per blog post. The reality may be different and I won't really know for sure until I actually get the traffic. Whatever, if I need more articles or other types of content then I will do it until I reach the $100 a day.

Thanks

My theory and it is only my theory is that because a blog is supposed to be updated regularly by definition then it does need to be updated once a week or so to keep the interest of google. I may be wrong about this but it seems logical to me, Comments are part of that process.

Hey Steve,
I have a question regarding site domain.

This kind of projects can be done on a freehosting server too?
What I mean is.... If we develop a similar blog on a free hosting service, can we get good results too (in this case we have mysite.freehost.com, for example)? Or the site domain must be like mysite.com or mysite.net....

Thanks for your answers.

Hi Steven

I had just started the process of changing an ordinary html site into a blog when you posted your self challenge – I’m now following your tips and doing a lot of tweaking, hopefully it will pay dividends!

While we all appreciate that you will want to keep your blog site private might I ask if you could post four or five sample posts so as we can get an idea of where you’ve placed your adsense blocks, how you place images, and get some general layout ideas etc. You could replace the original content of the pages with dummy material and your adsense with say colour blocks.

Looking forward to your next post.

ps should have asked what plugins are you using

Hi kakang,

there's nothing to worry since you have nothing to lose. Are you spending a lot of money to learn AdSense already? Just follow this thread and take action and you'll be fine. To get more visitor to your site, you just have to generate more traffic.

Here's thread that helps.

http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...eneration.html

Personally I would like to know Steve's own traffic generation tactics and strategies. Looking forward to that..

I'm not Steve, but I'll try to answer this one for you...

While it's possible to develop a site on free hosting, I would really recommend that you do everything you can to get your own domain name and hosting.

You can get a .com domain and hosting for as little as $20.81 US for an entire year! ($1 a month hosting at Hostica and a .com domain for $8.81 with a coupon at Namecheap).

Free sites often come with limitations on how you can monetize them, and you don't always have control over site layout.

Even if money is tight, I would strongly urge you to find that 20 bucks, and set up your own site.

~Mike

Steve,

Thanks for detailing this process for us. It's really helpful.

I know you've talked about this in general terms before, but to summarize here, I assume you outsourced your article production. Was the final count sixty? How much did it cost? How long did it take.

I have a number of blogs and mini-sites that haven't been updated for over a year. The traffic has remained constant (200-1200 unique visitors a day depending on the site) and the Adsense earnings have remained constant as well ($2 to $40 a day, depending on the site). It's all in having good, solid, aged backlinks and having done good keyword selection in relatively low competition areas.

Now, if there was significant competition or if I wanted to increase the number of keywords and long tails I was targeting then that would call for more frequent updating. If the domain was new and, in Google's estimation, an unknown, then more frequent updating would help. But, for right now, I'm happy leaving them 'as is' while I develop other sites.

And, yes, comments do help with SEO in a number of ways, especially with new domains. That's why it's a bad idea to turn off comments on a niche blog. Moderate them tightly, don't accept trackbacks, but leave them open to good contributors.

Even if you are not having many visitors you should have some earnings. the problem is that you can not "sell potatoes to the potatoes trader"!!
You need to target "Adsense ignorants and people avid for information" to make some money. As an example I can tell you that with a web site with 6 days live and 7 visitors I managed 4 Adsense clicks.

If your aim is to make money with Adsense choose diferent topics for your web sites, otherwise don't worry with your earnings because if you do 1 cent it's profit anyway.

Thanks for answering my question BG. Would you happen to know whether comment posting sends pings? You also say not to accept trackbacks but to leave them open to good contributors... how do you do that?

Personally, I moderate all comments before they appear on my blog because of all the unscrupulous people leaving crappy "non-comments" containing links to spam sites. I am happy to add quality contributors as users.

Out of curiosity, with the amount of traffic you receive to your blogs, how often would your posts receive comments?

In WordPress this is a global setting in the Options|Discussion section of the Admin Panel and you can set it in each individual post. Unless you're doing a lot of social activity (blog commenting, Digg, StumbleUpon, Twitter, etc.), which you shouldn't do for an Adsense site anyway, virtually all the trackbacks will be from spam sites.

The busiest one gets about 10 comments a week but only 2 or 3 are legit comments, the rest are automatic comment spammers. On others, I'll only get one or two legit comments a month, if that.

Let The Fun Begin..

Finally the cruise blog is live with just 5 posts to begin with and already getting spider activity I have started promoting it also. I have added a blog entry here The Adsense Challenge Begins… | The $100 Challenge if you want to read more detail into what I have done so far and any minor results of doing it.

I am getting 100 articles written initially most for the blog and the rest will be used for promotion. I will write some of them and outsource the rest at around $5 per article. If I need more to reach my goal then I will get more. The articles are arriving in batches of 10 or so and usually take my ghostwriter about 1 day for 5 articles.

I have just checked on google to see if my new blog had indexed any posts yet and was very suprised to see that they had indexed all 5 posts. They are all ranked very low at the moment for keywords worth over $5 and with a few thousand searches but just 2 hours after posting my last article they are indexed on google none the less.

Smart pricing is why. This happens when your clicks aren't converting for advertisers. This is what happens when you get a lot of social referral traffic that likes your site and decides to 'help you out' by giving you a 'tip' by clicking your ads. The result is that you'll get paid about 10% of what you would have been paid for a click. The most obvious warning sign is a low CTR, below 1%. However, you can have a low CTR and if your clicks still convert well you won't get priced. Also smart pricing doesn't affect one domain but your entire Adsense account.

Some targeted blog commenting or forum posting can help so far as link juice go but you don't want to over do this.

You want to have over 95%+ organic search traffic for your targeted buying keywords in order to maximize your Adsense earnings.

True, but then you start to cross into the "you get what you pay for" territory. (i.e., I've had some major issues with 1and1 over the years.)

That's why I recommended what I did. Is it the absolute cheapest possible solution? No, but it's as cheap as I was comfortable recommending while knowing from experience that the two outfits I mentioned run strong, consistent, dependable operations.

Tough to sell from a site that's down because the web host isn't dependable.

I have had my own personal horror story with 1and1 customer service and credit card charging, and re-charging and...... you wanted that domain cancelled? Well.... we kept on billing you, and oops... we still are billing.

I choose not to do business with 1&1 any more.

It wouldn't really matter if it took a couple of blogs. Once you've actually acheived it all you have to do is 'rinse and repeat'... just duplicate the results. Imagine having three or four blogs each earning $100 per day. Write one new article for each per week. Wouldn't take a lot of maintenance to acheive a nice tidy income.

The fact is that even one blog earning $100 per day would earn $200 per week more than my current employment. Not that I would leave work based on the results of one income stream. But then, each of the blogs would incorporate more than just adsense too... I'd probably promote some clickbank or paydotcom products aswell. My current site has a CTR of around 2% which is pretty low but still earns money

You must be the odd one out, I've never had a problem...

Don't let the past years knock you back from a good deal - just like wine, older it gets, it tastes better.

Got a couple of questions for you Steve (and any other experienced adsense users).

1. Do you know what type of adsense units fetch the most clicks? Text, image or link units?

2. What is the prime position to place adsense units in? Top of page? Top right hand sidebar?

They do say that our eyes automatically gravitate toward the top right hand side so is that the best place for adsense units? I'm assuming of course that you have researched this (or at least noticed which units work best in the process of experimentation).

I've had the most luck with text only large rectangles and squares.

I prefer placing a single Adsense block in the upper left corner of the page inline with the text.

Of course, different traffic patterns produce different results. I'm just saying what's worked best for me over a wide variety of niche blogs and mini-sites.

Personally speaking, I go for the less is more theory with adsense and don't put to many blocks on one page. I usually go with a 468 banner at the top of each page and bottom of the page and maybe a skyscraper in one of the sidebars.

I never really go for image ads as I think people are a bit blind to banner ads these days. Llink units I haven't really tried although many people say they have had success with them.

I've never used more than two adsense units per page... one 468 banner at the top and either a skyscraper or link unit in the sidebar. Although, that doesn't count the cbpro (clickbank) unit that I have below adsense. I always make sure the adsense unit is above the fold & I sometimes ad a google search box lower down in my sidebar

First Visitor

Less than 24 hours since I posted my first articles to the blog and I have just checked my stats to see I have had my first visitor from google. A small victory, I know but progress none the less. The keyword was a bit of an obscure long tail keyword but hey, I'm not complaining. A larger progress report will appear on my 100buckschallenge blog later.

The rest of the day will be spent starting the promotion of the blog and getting my articles queued up in wordpress for future posting.

Congratulations on your first google visitor Always a good feeling, I recall the buzz I got when I got my first SE visitor.

When you say you're getting your articles queued for posting do you mean you're entering them but saving them as drafts?

No, I am talking about the ability in wordpress now to click the edit button next to the publish button and set a date in the future when you want it to post.

Hey Steve, this is great man.

I am following along, but I am using my blog to promote a clickbank product. I have 70+ articles based around keywords that I am using and I started yesterday, uploading 3 per day. One for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hope I get some success, I am sure I will!

Thanks man, this is the kick in the a$$ I need!

There really is a lot of free stuff online, wordpress.org is a good place for starters.

Whole books have been written on this..

1. Permalinks
2. Usual on-page SEO stuff (keywords, titles, H1 tags, meta stuff)
3. Keep things themed under different categories
4. No linking to bad neighbourhoods
5. Google sitemaps

That will do for starters.
