My Proven Adsense Niche Model REVEALED

In this thread I will outline the precise system that made me over $5176 in Flippa revenue in January 2012.

Basically, my Adsense business model is creating micro niche Adsense sites with the intention to flip them after 3-4 months on Flippa. I don´t claim it to be the best system out there, but I claim it to be a proven system model that worked very well for me.

Here is the exact process that I use from keyword research to flipping a site:

1.Niche Selection – Keyword Research

That is the first step where a lot of people already make fatal mistakes. If you are not picking the right kind of keywords for an Adsense site, you might be wasting a lot of money, time, and energy.

I have found that “how to” keywords and a lot physical product keywords are not optimal for Adsense.

On the flip side, niches such as online education and finances/investing work extremely well for Adsense. The more likely it is that people come online to find a solution for a particular niche (and are willing to invest money), the more money you should make.

What I would do in the first step is simply find a niche that has at least 20-25 potential keywords. Such a niche might be ultrasound technician.

-Open up the Google Keyword Tool, and paste in ultrasound technician and hit search. Make sure that you are signed in with your account so you can get up to 800 keywords per search.

As you can see ultrasound technician has an exact search volume of 33100 searches in the US. This is the type of keyword we want to use for the homepage. I like to write the homepage for a keyword like ultrasound technician training, and aim to rank it for both keywords; in this instance ultrasound technician and ultrasound technician training. The reason for that is that your homepage is automatically optimized for 2 keywords and therefore easier to rank in Google.

Now, how do we know that ultrasound technician is a great Adsense niche in the first place? There are a couple of things I like to check here.

-The first thing is obviously whether or not people would come online to look for training, products, schools, etc. The answer is clearly yes.

-Second, open up the Contextual Targeting Tool, and search for a number of keywords like ultrasound technician, ultrasound technician training, ultrasound technician schools in California, etc. In the right column you will see how much the suggested bid is (that is pretty close to what Google is going to pay you, but it definitely is less).

I like to see a suggested bid of at least around $1.50-$2.00 (the more, the better).

-Third, make sure there are enough keywords with proper search volume. A niche where there are not enough keywords with proper search volume might not be worth going for. (I will outline how I go about the backlinking system later on).

In this instance, the keywords that I would use for this website are:

ultrasound technician – 33000 exact
ultrasound technician salary – 14800 exact
ultrasound technician schools – 9900 exact
ultrasound technician requirements – 1900 exact
how to become an ultrasound technician – 1600 exact
ultrasound technician schools in California – 1300 exact
ultrasound technician schools in Florida – 1000 exact
ultrasound technician training – 1000 exact
ultrasound technician schools in pa – 1000 exact
ultrasound technician schools in ohio – 1000 exact
ultrasound technician schools in Illinois – 880 exact
ultrasound technician schools in nj – 880 exact
ultrasound technician schools in texas – 880 exact
ultrasound technician schools in Georgia – 880 exact
ultrasound technician jobs – 720 exact
ultrasound technician school – 720 exact
ultrasound technician schools in ny – 720 exact
ultrasound technician schools in Michigan – 720 exact
ultrasound technician education – 590 exact
ultrasound technicians – 390 exact
ultrasound tech jobs – 590 exact
ultrasound technician job description – 480 exact
online ultrasound technician schools – 480 exact

2.Content Creation

If you can afford to outsource the writing do it.

So what we would need for the content creation is a really good article for the homepage, preferably 1000 – 1500 words. The article should be written for the keyword ultrasound technician training.

Then we would need another 23 articles for our internal pages. For internal pages, I prefer having articles with around 500 – 700 word.

You shouldn´t spend more than $150-$200 for the entire content.
On an Adsense site you don´t even want to have super high quality that keeps readers on your website. Your content should definitely be relevant, on topic, and providing a solution. But there is no need for writing a super in-depth and highly informative article with lots of facts like the one you will find on a Wikipedia page.

3.Buying a domain

While EMDs still help in ranking the homepage, other factors have become much more important.

I like to invest into a solid – relevant aged domain that I will buy on GoDaddy. I prefer to buy a domain that is at least 2 years old, contains keywords, gets traffic, and is listed under the expired domains in Godady.

You can use FreshDrop.Net for your aged domain research if you want to also look at other places.

You should use a backlink checker tool like SpyGlass to make sure everything looks alright.

I don´t buy a domain that has sex, pharma or gambling anchor texts pointing to it.

Make sure that you check whether the targeted domain is indexed or not. You do that by going to google.com and making use of the Google web search:

site: http://yourdomain.com

NOTE: Make sure that each of your Adsense sites is hosted on a separate IP address. I recommend you to use aseohosting.com

You should definitely not start a new domain, because it´s just going to be so much tougher to rank. I found that the value of EMDs has decreased, and even if you only want to rank the homepage, it should still go faster by using a solid aged domain.

4.Setting up the website

Theme: I like to use ClickBump for all my Adsense sites because it gives me templates that are clean and very conducive to click.

Make sure that you open a separate URL channel for each internal page. I know that most people don´t find that to be important, but it is. You want to track every single page so you see where the clicks are coming from. You might think that this is only a minor leak, but in reality it is a really big leak. If you see where the clicks are coming from, what the CTR is, how much the average CPC is, you will get a really good feeling whether it´s worth investing more backlinks into ranking a single page or not.

On Page SEO: Make sure to utilize a plugin like ClickBump SEO or SEO Pressor. It´s amazing how so many people can ignore on page SEO on an Adsense site, and then wonder why they need 10 times as many backlinks to rank it.
Ad placement: I like to use 336 x 228 large rectangle on top of every page on my website. Make sure that the title of your ads is blue - 0000FF, and the text color is 808080.

On quite a few of my past projects I saw a massive increase in CTR after placing the 160 x 600 wide skyscraper on the right sidebar of every page.

5.Backlinking sytem:

Usually, I wait around 1 week after the website has been built to begin with backlinking.

Campaign 1: For the first campaign I will submit one article to AMR targeting the homepage with about 30-50 different keyword variations. It´s good to get enough keyword variations first, so that you won´t get penalized when you start backlinking with your main keywords. This campaign will end in about 7-10 days.

After the submission with AMR is finished, I will do a link search and save all the plain URLs in a text file. Then I will submit all found urls to linklicious.com and nuclear-link-indexer.com.

Campaign 2: In the second campaign I will use social networks to build links to my Adsense site. While using social networks as a primary link strategy might not be so effective, it is good way to vary anchor texts, and backlinking strategies. Also, I´m linking to my SNP with social bookmarks, RSS, and profile links.

After all submissions are finished, I make sure that I submit all the links to linklicious.com and nuclear-link-indexer.com to make sure I get maximum link juice.

Campaign 3: In the third campaign I´m getting more anchor text variations while using high PR blog posts. I prefer to get around 30-50 variations to my homepage, and around 100 variations to the internal pages I intend to rank.

Campaign 4: In the fourth campaign I submit another article to AMR, randomly targeting a few internal pages with lots of anchor text variations.

Campaign 5: HIGH PR BLOG POSTS with my targeted keywords.
As my primary source to increase in SERP I love to use high PR blog posts.
When we go back to our selected keywords, we have a couple of strategies from which to choose.

When it comes to ranking keywords for an Adsense site, you don´t need to rank all keywords. Here are the 4 options we have:

Option 1: We are just going to rank the homepage for the keyword ultrasound technician.

Advantages:

Ranking one keyword can be accomplished a lot faster than ranking 10 keywords.

Disadvantages:

Even if you manage to rank that one keyword on #2 or even #1, if Google does an Algorithm update you lose a decent percentage of your revenue.
If the keyword is getting a nasty CTR (meaning extremely low), you might not make as much money as you thought you would.

Option 2: Backlinking to all internal pages with the intention to rank them all on the first page.

Advantages:

Ranking all internal pages will help you to settle down with your Adsense income a lot stabler.

Ranking all internal pages will help you determine the pages that get the highest CTRs.

Disadvantages:

Ranking a lot of pages can be a struggle and can take forever.
If your attention is on too many pages, you might not be able to rank them on #1.

Option 3: Backlinking to a few pages, preferably 3-5 with the intention to take and keep #1. (My preferred backlinking strategy).

Advantages:

Ranking for only 3-5 pages will allow you to rank a lot faster.
Ranking for only 3-5 pages will allow you to get more links to them so that you can take #1.

Disadvantages:

You might be missing out to discover the page with the highest CTR or/and highest CPC.

Note: The reason why you want to start a website with more pages are:

-You are less vulnerabel to Google updates.

-You have the chance to rank multiple pages on #1 in Google.

-Once you are getting traffic for some keywords by already ranking on the first page, you will see which pages are worth going for #1.

6. Selling the website:

After around 3-4 months you should be ranking high for a number of keywords and your site should make decent monthly revenue (provided you did everything right in the previous steps).

On average, you should get around 10 x of whatever the website made in the last month you ran Adense on it. Even if the website didn´t make a lot in the first 2 months, people tend to pay around 10 times of what it made in the last month.

When I sell the website on Flippa, I Iike to use a title like:

$257 Monthly Revenue – PageRank 4 –Google Adsense

Make sure that you include screenshots of Adsense earnings for the last months. Do the same for traffic (I recommend you use StatCounter or GetClicky to track your pages).

It is wise to write only positive facts in the description about your site. State why people should buy the website and how they can benefit from it. You still need to be truthful and provide only the right and true facts.

If you don´t know how to write a page for your Flippa auction, you can simply study some competitors. Just look through auctions that get lots of bids and sell for a decent amount compared to what they are making a month.

I know, that´s been quite a bit of information right now but if you follow these points for each of your Adsense websites you should be able to make a decent monthly income.

Of course, there is a lot more to say than I did in the last 2000 words and I could have easily provided 10 times more information in this thread.

This is the model that I´m working successfully right now and there are more models out there that can make you a lot of money.

Here are a few final points to consider before you start with any model:

- Make sure that the model you intend to work is in rapport with your budget
- If you are a newbie and don´t have much experience with Adsense but need money, I suggest you to follow a proven model.
- Don´t quit before you can see revenue coming in for a couple months.
- Follow your business model, and don´t budge from it, especially not when you are in a panic.

Best regards,

Gerald

      Generally, I prefer to have a keyword density of around 2%-3%. I don´t think it makes a big difference whether you have a keyword density of 2.3% or 2.7%.

      A general rule of thumb is to be between 2%-3%.

      Well, when you use The Best Spinner´s Replace Everyone´s Favorites auto spin function, you can select the quality level: good. Max Synonomys: 5
      On average this will give you around 50%-70% uniqueness.

      I tend to schedule 50-70 submissions every 6-7 hours. In most cases, each submission takes somewhere in between 7-10 days.

    Thanks for putting together a very informative guide. I am interested in why you place each of your Adsense sites on separate IPs? Google can still piece the sites together from your Adsense Publisher ID. So you can't hide from them. Just curious.

    Thanks again!

      Thanks again!
      Manual site reviews won´t generally come from the Adsense team. It´s just not there area of work. A Google employee doesn´t take an hour to review a single website. So if he removes a site from their index, it might just be the one he reviewed.

      But yes, the Google Adsense team has access to all of your Adsense sites.

    Thanks for laying your revenue model out for everyone. Definitely a solid approach to making money with Adsense AND flipping sites for profit.

    The only thing I question is this:

    The bulk of my income is via Adsense, so I'm no newbie to it. However, no matter what your monetization method is, you should always want to have high-quality content. You want to be the "it" site for anything related in that niche. Adsense is there to support your content and give users relevant ads that may assist them in what they truly want.

    I get what you're saying though. You don't need a world-class article, but the quality definitely needs to be there.

    Look at it this way - the last thing you want to do is have people hurry up and get click happy on ads to get off of your site. Sites setup with poor content to target this type of activity MIGHT make some money in the short-term. However, these are usually the people who end up with disabled accounts due to poor quality clicks.

    Having a quality website with quality info helps target revelant Adsense ads. Rather than getting people to click because your site is so bad that they just click anything to get out of it, people will be clicking because they WANT to. Everyone wins.

    When you build your sites, ask yourself if you would stay on the site or hit the back button as soon as you landed on it. The more you think about the user experience, the better your results will be long-term.

      Thanks for sharing your feedback with me!

      Yes, you definitely shouldn´t put rubbish on any of your Adsense sites. By rubbish I mean content that is poorly written, short, off-topic, and useless to the reader.

      The content that I like to put on my website is:

      -providing a solution to the end consumer which is the Google web searcher.

      -very relevant and offering clear tips.

      -written by a native English speaker.

      Of course, the content for an Adsense site should be written entirely different than compared to the content for an affiliate site.

      You get relevant ads by having super optimized content for your keyword. I also like to use LSI themed content.

      I have never had any on page quality issues with any of my Adsense sites.

      You should invest at least $1 - $1.20 / 100 word. If for example your website gets a manual review by a Google employee and the content has been outsourced by an Indian (which means that it´s to a very high likelihood poorly written, off topic, etc) - the best thing that could happen is that the Google employee rates the content of your site as slightly relevant or off topic which will hurt.

      The goal should be to get content on your website that is providing a solution, is off topic, and has proper English grammar.

        It's been mentioned by a Google quality rater that writing quality isn't a criteria in their rating guidelines. Although some raters might still take typos and stuff into consideration.

        MFAs stand pretty much no chance of passing a quality review. Your best bet is to never get reviewed at all.

          I´d say the best information you can get is insider information.

          If you check rankings for random keywords you will notice that most of the time highly relevant pages with great content are ranked in the top spots.

          Google rates homepages and internal pages based on quality, and they do that on purpose. If there won´t be a sense in rating pages, why would they take the time to do it? Rating pages leads to a result that helps Google to improve their search results to the end user.

          In some cases, the Google Webmaster Team is deceptive and not telling accurate facts. Even Matt Cutts occasionally misleads.

          Every site that purely generate revenue through Adsense is a Made For Asense website. As long as you stay within their terms of service, Adsense won´t hurt you.

    Still a very short term approach. If your only goal is flipping the sites it's ok for you (not so much the buyer) - I wouldn't build long-term sites like this. Too many shady links incoming, especially with the auto spun content.

    OUt of interest, how much do you normally aim to sell your websites for on Flippa? Although you mentioned that in January you netted about $$5 Grand, I've seen some similar to what you're describing go for $2,000 - personally I'd probably want a bit more than that for all the work.

    Thanks for all the info!

    Wow dude, did you really just put my main keyword on blast like that. It's bad enough over the last year I've seen literally more than 25 new mfa sites spring up now because of this post I'll probably see a hundred more, although this keyword is not easy at all to rank so most of these sites are on page 2,3,4 etc, but I still don't want those garbage sites in my niche. I have built a 100 page authority site complete with a forum,videos,contact,privacy,about us etc while all my competition as at most 10 pages.

    And whats really sad is most of the people that use the contact me page are young women still in high school really looking for info that will help them make a decision about becoming a ultrasound technician and all they will end up with is a 5 page mfa garbage site that offers little to no information on the subject.

    Edit: I didn't even notice that you also include most of my secondary keywords, couldn't you have just used blue widgets as example like most people.

        Trust me you don't wanna go after this keyword, if i had it to do all over again I wouldn't. It takes a ton of backlinks to get to first page and more just to maintain it. Go after easy keywords with at least 2400 exact searches a month.

          Bet you're making a buttload of money off of it though . But yeah these education niches are definitely super competitive in the SERPs.

        Just because a niche is full of Adsense sites doesn´t mean that you are not capable to rank a website.

        Cashing in with Adsense for passive income as well as site selling comes down to basically a few things:

        1) Developing an Adsense niche model that works. If you have a business model that works, you will make money in most niches.

        2) Finding the right kind of keywords/picking niches that are super profitable. The honest truth is that most niches that are highly profitable are competitive. If you are scared of entering a niche where you can see many Adsense sites, you shouldn´t enter it. Scared money can´t win.

        3) Having relevant, solution providing, and proper English content on your site.

        4) Optimizing your content by using on page SEO.

        5) Developing a site structure that is very conducive for people to click. There are many people who don´t know how to get out the maximum of each visitor. I have pages that get CTRs above 50%.

        6) The right backlinking system. It´s not only important to know how much money you probably need to rank for a keyword or multiple keywords, but it will also help you become better at quitting and not quitting at the right time.

        If you are not making money with Adsense yet, it is because your business model sucks or one of your development strategies suck.

    How much do you spend on 1 site generally? Where are you getting the high PR blog posts? Also, are you only using Google keyword tool to do your keyword research or do you use other tools?

    Thanks for the great info!

      Thanks for the great info!

      How much do you spend on 1 site generally?
      This depends a lot on what keywords I´m going for. I tend to work in sets of websites. If you can get a return of investment of over 70-100%, you are doing great. With the last flips my ROI was far over 100% of what I invested in the previous months to rank the websites.

      Where are you getting the high PR blog posts?
      I´m using a few networks from which I get my links for a reasonable price. You really need to be conscious of how much you want/can invest per month, and how long it is probably going to take you to rank for certain keywords. The more experience you have, the easier it becomes to estimate the length of ranking certain keywords. But it still varies. I will send you a PM regarding the high PR blog posts.

      Also, are you only using Google keyword tool to do your keyword research or do you use other tools?
      Yeah, Google Keyword Tool.

      AMR stands for Article Marketing Robot. This is a tool that you can use to submit articles to diverse article directories.

      If you are ranking websites consistently, I´d say this is a tool you still need. I wouldn´t use it as my primary source of links, but to vary anchor texts and backlink strategies.

        Nice job here, I'd like to try to get into flipping sites because Adsense can be flaky if you're holding them for the long term.

        How long do you hold them and earn from them before you place on them for sale.....? There must be a certain point in time in which the site becomes trusted to produce for the buyer to grab it.

          This Adsense niche model is all about strategy, and selling at the right time. I intend to sell my websites after 3-4 months.

          You definitely don´t want to sell a site after 2 months of backlinking because it simply is too early to sell. Rarely you will see #1 rankings for any decent keyword within a few weeks. It takes time to develop momentum and you do that by getting continues backlinks.

      Neither separate hosting nor different C-class IP hosting is needed in terms of your ability to rank the sites.

      The reason why you want to have each of your Adsense sites hosted on a separate IP address is because you don´t want Google to know too much.

      Some people might argue that it doesn´t matter, but it does.

      These are small strategic movements that doesn´t seem to be important, however they can make a difference in your Adsense niche model.

        What I do for my tier 1 is to submit 1-2 articles for each website. One goes to the homepage with lots of anchor text variations. Another one goes to a couple till all internal pages with anchor text variations as well.

        After I did some high PR campaigns for the keywords I´m trying to rank for, I run a few more AMR campaigns to those and other pages.

        The only reasons why I use AMR are to vary anchor text and backlinking strategies.

        Regarding the private blog network, you can contact me on skype at: exoticboy89

    Great info, thanks for sharing! I don't agree with the IP thing though, as most shared hosts have many customers under the same IP, so there's really no benefit or avenue for google to link an IP with an individual. As others have said the adsense account is enough.

    As far as buying a domain name you mention buying an aged domain instead of new domain. So if we go by your example of the keyword "ultrasound technician training" I'm sure you won't find aged domains that will have those keywords and be cheap to buy.

    So do you just buy any domain name or how do you figure out exactly which domain to buy since what keywords are in the domain can impact your rankings? Would you still buy a totally irrelevant aged domain compared to a new domain that is keyword rich?

      It´s very hard, sometimes near to impossible to get an exact match domain for your keyword. Don´t forget that having the exact keywords in your domain is not everything.

      I love to go with relevant domains. In this instance, I´d look for a domain that has the keyword "ultrasound" in it. I´m sure there are a couple available. Sometimes, it´s worth waiting a little bit to get a really great domain.

        Thanks So much for this thread. This is just fantastic information! I'm so glad you are having success with it.

        I love the "adsense" model and am currently building up my first site but will need to rethink how Im going to do this as a long term successful business model based on so of the stuff in your post.

        Would you mind PMing me what High PR Blog network you have had success with? This part is really confising me as I have been given information on way too many... I dont want to use them all, I just want one good one. Also the thought of 'renting' backlinks makes me cringe, but some swear this is the way to go... thoughts?

          I appreciate your kind words Alex.

          Adsense is all about creating a business model that works for you. Well, you don´t even need to create your own one - just work a proven model.

          I have found that it´s really tough to find a solid high PR network from which you can get your links from.

          I PM for more information.

        What I did is found a writer that is learnable and flexible for my projects. I taught her a lot about on page SEO and writing.

        You can use odesk, freelancer or forums to find writers. Make sure that you give them one test project before you consider more.

        I personally wouldn´t use fiver for any of my Adsense projects. The problem with cheap content is a lack of value. You can still get decent content for a cheap rate, but you will need to educate your writers properly.

      Based on the Google algo updates lately, it makes more sense to sell websites than to actually buy them.

      If you don´t have a long term profitable backlinking strategy in place, you will not make up for the money you invested.

      That depends a lot on the keywords I´m ranking for. There are too many variables to determine the cost for ranking a specific keyword on a specific spot.

      For some of my websites I intend to rank only 2-3 keywords. For other websites, I see more benefit in ranking most keywords just on the first page.

      It´s all about strategy and getting a feeling for how tough it is to rank for a keyword.

      But yes, I´m definitely capable to make at least a 100% ROI on average for each website I create.

      That´s a really good question. Most of the time definitely goes into keyword research, uploading the content, setting up the site, and planning the backlinking campaigns. I´m not doing any backlinking myself - that´s all outsourced.

      After all websites are set up, and the backlinking is planned, I don´t need more than 30-60 minutes a day.
