1) I have Adsense code from the moment the site is launched.

2) I am now taking off all of my amazon links, just pure content with
no distractions from the Adsense Ads.

Again, this is another question that have different variables:

1) I don't always use a specific name-brand product, for example "high
mount ceiling fans" is not brand-specific.

2) There aren't always manufacturers listed for all of these keywords.

3) Even if the manufacturer's sites are listed, I'm very happy to sit in the
#3, #4, or #5 position and still earn a passive $75 to $150 per month.

It's actually quite easy.

Have you ever found a keyword that has only a few hundred competing
sites? These types of keywords only need 1 or two backlinks to sit in
the 1st page.

I know, but Google is weird like that.

So why risk it? I'm making too much money to tread the waters.

Well, i have some adsense sites, im still a newbie in that. First time, i have bought some articles and i have started some websites in big markets, so, duplicate content and big competition > fail, the clicks i have on those sites come only from directories.

Then, i have started a wordpress blog about weight loss. I have selected a good keyword for the domain name, and 10 differents keywords with not so much competition, and with that, i wrote 1 page for every keyword (10 differents pages). Second try, well, it's better than before but not the paradise : some days, 0.50 cents, to 1.5 Euro luckys days (some days 0 too). That's for my little experience.
Every things i tried for now are in french, french markets/website/content.

I was not on the warrior forum for a moment now, but when i came and see your post, i got back some motivation to try again. I have read the 13 pages and now, i have a lost of questions before i start.

The first thing : with a product for keyword, i have always some online-shops websites and some websites that list the best prices for every online shops (i dont know how to say in english, we says
"comparateur de prix" in french.) I have a chance to be before those sites in google results?

Second one when i do a page about a product in amazon, amazon will always appear in results no?

Then, about niches, i still have problems. When you say, "i choose a keyword and i create some pages about that keyword it's like for exemple if : i select the niche "inox toaster" with a domain name like "inoxtoastersite_DOT_com and i create 4-5 pages like
1) The best inox toasters on the market
2) How to choose your inox toaster
3) How an inox toaster works
4) Why people like inox toasters?

then i creater others pages, like specific models of inox toaster,

The toaster philips hb45785568989,
etc.

Say me if i'm right with that thing or not please, it's the biggest thing that stop me to start working.

Thanks in advance, and good luck for the 1000$/day!
Why not just do the best you can with your information, plus use my tips
as a guideline, and see what happens?

It's all in this thread, just go back over it and jump into the water with
your site.

1) Domain keyword name
2) keyword categories
3) Keyword 3-5% usage on the front page (with readability being the goal)
4) and keyword article usage for distribution.


Everything else is fluff. To also highlight what John is talking about, once you've done your due diligence on researching a niche based on SOC and other factors...build it! See how it performs and continue on. It's a numbers game friends, and if you don't play, you won't win
Hi Kael41,
Thanks for this information.

From what I understand in this thread, it is advised not to use the targeted keyword in the article a person writes, so the article doesn't outrank your website.

Could you please explain in a little more detail how you do the 'keyword article usage for distribution'?

Thanks

He can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he just means to use the keywords in the anchor text in the resource box.

Because, as you have read, you do not want your article ranking higher than your site. If it does, then people will obviously see the article first and may not even click on the link in your article to go to your site. No site visit, no adsense click.

24 sites?! Was this all recent? Or did you have some already made?

Are you using a static site or WP?

I'm thinking of switching to WP. I set up a static site a few days ago and Google still hasn't seen it. Submitted 2 articles to 5 directories each. Not all went through yet, so maybe I should just hold off until they do.

I am using wordpress since I find it easy to rank with those. I just added adsense to one of my sites and made $1.43 so far to day can't wait to add to the rest.

As far as indexing I have UAW and Linkvana so getting index was pretty easy. Thanks for making this thread it has helped me to take massive action throw mud at the wall and see what sticks. I already have 20 more domains I registered to add content to after I do those I will have 44 adsense sites!!
Nice work!!

Keep it up and you'll be making some pretty decent money.

Yeah, I submitted 10 articles in the past 2 days. Nothing complicated about it, just no fun at all!! So repetitive. Definitely going to be buying software to help with this in the near future.

Try Pingler and social bookmarking to get your static site indexed.

All of you guys who are using WP for your adsense sites what theme or template are you using? Alot of people seem to recommend prosense by doshdosh but it doesn't want to work on WP 2.8.

Damn man that's a lot of sites to do at once. I plan to eventually get up to 50 sites but I am going to only do patches of 5-10 at a time so I don't get discouraged and can stay focused on getting them up 1 at a time.

Great info, I was wondering whether it is best to concentrate on one main site as opposed to having many individual blogs. I am so new at this that my head spins with conflicting information. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

You just have to find a daily work schedule that makes you

I totally agree with "doing what matters to you"... oh and stay focused. There are a million other things you could be doing instead of the steps laid out in this thread.

Things I've learnt from this thread so far are...

1. You can host unlimited domains on 1 hosting account - Saved me $1000 a year already.
2. Grey Text and Black Hyper link - Increased CTR of about 1% on one of my adsense sites in the last few days (Gold Hyperlink and Black Text Works well for me too).
3. Namecheap.com is offering free Whoisguard (Private Whois reg) at the time of this post. They also seem to be the best all round domain provider (From all the posts I've read on WF)
4. dv8's Mindmap should be sold for at least $27 on CB.
5. Micro Niche Finder was a good investment (Been using for about a week with very good results).

I'm making average around $20 a day from adsense using techniques similar to John's and that's only with a handful of sites. So I know this stuff works and if I get more focused, more passive income will roll in. Keep up the great (informative) posts!

Cheers

Adrian

XFactor, how do you handle (and suggest) inter-linking of your sites?:

1. Link your sites together in a string (site A links to site B, site B links to site C, site C links to site D).
2. Link several sites to just one (sites A, B and C link to site D).
3. Use either #1 or #2 above, but only link similar topic sites.
4. Do not link ANY of your sites to ANY of your other sites.

Also, (this one is purely curiosity) why do you use Reseller hosting plans as opposed to regular shared plans?

Thanks...

He doesn't link his sites. Each site is built with no exit route other than adsense.

His sites consist of appx 10-12 pages: home page, ~5 to 7 sub pages, then 4 boilerplate pages (Terms & Conditions, Privacy Statement, Contact Us, Sitemap)

The site blueprint is a two column layout as follows:

Left column:
Page title in H1 headings
Adsense Block (336x280) grey text, blue links, domain name in black.
Content (appx 5-10 paragraphs of text, no images, no links)

Right Column:
Site subject image to the right of the heading (appx 170x113)
Site menu with articles and boilerplate pages in a list (site menu usually has an image labeled "'sitename' articles" as a header.

Nice work!!

I've got one site up but Google still hasn't found it, it's been a good 4-5 days. And I have submitted articles and pinged the site. Thinking of starting another site but using WP. Never had problems getting them indexed. Gonna get working on that today.

Thanks to this thread, I have come across a keyword phrase that according to Google keyword tool got over 40,000 exact searches last month. And the #1 spot is pathetic, to say the least.

Off to buy a domain...

John,

Great stuff you are providing here and I am learning a lot! Now I just need to do something and so I have a quick question and apologize in advance if already asked (I didn't run across it anywhere).

I am technically-challenged and don't know the first thing on how to set up a website or wordpress blog, but do understand basics of setting up blogger blogs.

So if all I want to do is just get "started" and even if I make $1 that's fine by me, so can this work with blogger blogs? Also I should mention the need to use blogger blogs is because they are free and right now I am flat broke and maxxed-out on credit cards and can't afford to buy domains or hosting. I just want to get a little something going and so any advice appreciated!

Thank you and have a nice day,

Cindy

Have a great domain for IM niche. PM if interested.

Hey John,

Here's a question I hope you can help with:

I'm setting up a product-centric site, based on an appliance type. For illustration's sake, we'll say "coffee makers".

I've found a great set of keywords revolving around 4-5 different coffee maker brands. I've purchased a domain name that covers one of the root keywords, "coffeemakerstop.com" (example).

The keywords, for illustration purposes, include:

mr coffee drip machine
mr coffee filters
carafe for mr coffee
mr coffee reviews

sunbeam drip coffee maker
sunbeam coffee maker reviews
top sunbeam coffee makers

braun drip coffee maker
braun coffee maker filters


Each keyword group has a combined daily search volume around 750, with each having only a few hundred to a few thousand competing pages.

Using Xsitepro, I had planned on having a few top-level menu entries:

Mr. Coffee Drip Coffee Maker
Sunbeam Drip Coffee Maker
Braun Drip Coffee Maker

with each menu going to an appropriate sub-page:

mr coffee drip machine
mr coffee filters
carafe for mr coffee
mr coffee reviews

etc.

My question is, in your experience, does a single-product-specific flat site work better than something like the above?

Thanks for your thoughts, and for all your generous insight on this thread.

Does anyone have any experience with sites such as walmart, target, yahoo answers, nexttag and cnet?

If they have internal pages indexed are they difficult to outrank or easier? At first I was under the impression that they were difficult but now I've seen that amazon ranking at the top is generally a good sign.

4. Do not link ANY of your sites to ANY of your other sites.

Also, (this one is purely curiosity) why do you use Reseller hosting plans as opposed to regular shared plans?

Thanks...
I'm not quite sure what you mean. I do not link any of my sites together.

If you want to copy the site layout that I show in my upcoming
course then blogger will not work.

However, I'm pretty sure there are some wordpress designers that could
make a wordpress template in the same fashion.

Also, I too am technically challenged. And because of this I strongly
advise that you get XsitePro.

It's very easy to use.

I like the way you planned this out. And I do believe that this can work
just as well (I'm actually doing one site like this too, because I found
just too many good keywords in the same sub-niche).

Give it a go and put enough work into it so that all of your keywords
rank.

- John

John,

In Google's TOS, it says not to make sites just for adsense,

is it a good idea to take off amazon links.

How many sites do you have by now.

Is it better to have multiple Adsense units on the page (up to the maximum of 3) or is it better to have only one or two units so that the higher paying ads are shown instead of the lesser paying ads?

I would imagine so he can put up new sites when ever he wants, he doesn't have to wait for anyone else to do it, he can create the hosting packages, point the domain to it and upload his site (assuming it's ready to upload) in around 10 minutes after buying the domain.

Regular shared hosting plans allow all of this as well.

You can do that on a regular hostgator account.

I just buy the domain and then change the nameservers. Gotta be another reason I would think.

Maybe reseller plans come with more bandwidth? Or maybe there is no reason at all. It really doesn't matter what hosting you use. Seriously.

I'm currently putting amazon links on all of my websites, because I'm a little scared of a manual review from Google. Purely MFA sites are not exactly the best way to go IMO, but that is simply my choice. I don't want to risk my Adsense account getting closed. Even if having more links means lower ad ctr.

I'm currently posting 10 product reviews per website, then I SB the site to 25 do follow SB sites (manually). Then I wait for a day or two and see how I'm doing in Google. Then I submit 1-2 articles per website to UAW. Then about 3-5 days later do another 25 SBs and keep posting articles to UAW until I hit top 3 (or top 5) in Google.

I write about 3-4k words worth of content every day (5 days a week). Writing content takes me ~3hours. Then I set up 2 websites (I have a VPS), configure WP, change the template (I don't use any plugins as I found they don't help at all. Just a waste of time.), add content (pages), do SBs... Slowed down to 2 sites/day.

I'm almost at $20/day now, ~20 days in. Changed my goals to $100/day by 1st of September. I plan to reach $100/day with around 40-50 sites.

Do work. If you work hard enough, success is guaranteed. Its all a numbers game really (and some common sense). Create a system for yourself and follow it every single day. Do not get distracted or discouraged. Things tend to go wrong from time to time, just keep working at it and you will succeed.

Do not look for a magic formula, there isn't one. Start doing.

blah.

Which is why I'm wondering why someone might pay more for Reseller hosting. I figure there's got to be some reason for it.

Anyway it's just a curiosity question. Nothing more.

My best guess would be that you get more "actual" bandwidth with reseller plans. The regular plans say "unlimited", but I very much doubt there is such a thing as "unlimited bandwidth".

Also, you can host many separate domains on reseller hosting. While regular hosting plans give you unlimited add-on domains.

Reseller plans are more powerful (again common sense). If you are looking to host 20+ websites, I highly doubt a $12.95/month plan is a good choice.

Being a single mom with no free time to myself ever, I only have Sunday's to devote to this want to start today with setting up my first site.

I don't have money for XSP, so will NVU or similar WYSIWYG work for this method? I know how blogger works so may go that route, but don't know yet. Also my big stumbling block is coming up with content for articles. This is so difficult as I find it hard just to figure out what to write. I can't afford to hire an article writer, so can PLR articles do the job. I have tons of PLR just sitting gathering dust on my hard drive. I do have Market Samurai and so that can help with the keyword part. Is this a good starting point for noob? I would appreciate any advice.

Many thanks,

Cindy

Have a great domain for IM niche. PM if interested.

Simple reason - I want a cpanel for each site and I like the ease of managing a group of sites from one WHM (webhost manager) screen.

I have total access to changing the space allotments for each site at any time and can view the space used quickly and easily.

Well, you need to spend some money on domain and web hosting in order to build a new site. It's cheap to build a website using Wordpress.
Start using these PLR article of yours and post it into your website.
Then, start rewriting your PLR articles and submit it to various article directories like EzineArticles.com and Goarticles.com. This is the way to get quality traffic to your site.

You can use wordtracker for keywords since it's free.

The key is to start doing it rather than doing nothing.
