Thanks John. I've built another new site today using similar methods. Again used socialmarker and the site was indexed in Google within a few hours.

Andy,

Are you using the free SocialMarker web site interface? Do you submit to ALL the SB sites listed there? Do you have to have accounts at all those SB Sites?

Yes its the free one at socialmarker.com. I normally select the Dofollow sites to submit to and yes you do need an account at each site. Its a bit of a faff setting it up for the first time but then its easier to use thereafter.

Ive been reading this up to now I haven't said anything but I am now before I continue reading. There are some lazy people on this forum! to the question above

Did you ever think of just buying a domain setting up a site and testing? what Johns results are could be different than yours. It just blows me away that this guy has given you the formula to make money and many of you keep asking same questions over and over, READ THE POSTS PLEASE!!! and keep a little bit for the imagination. If you can't make it now with the infor he's given go back to 7-11 sorry to be so harsh but jeeze.

That guy's questions aside, the majority of people will not follow any of these things through.

Some don't have the ambition or 'stick-to-it-ness', some lack the confidence or belief in themselves, and some are simply stuck in "follower" mentality, unable to make decisions, no matter how small, and move forward. Those people will continuously ask for direction, answers, hand-holding, stuck at every turn and completely unable to exert any initiative.

This is one area that I touched up on in my book, especially the
last chapter. The bottom line is this:

You either want it, or you don't, period.

It's passion, desire, motivation and just plain being dead-set on
accomplishing a goal, no matter if it is Adsense, marriage, physical,
or school...

You will either fall down and get right back up, or you'll retreat
to where it is safe.

I agree. If anyone has really read this thread and truly wants to make this their business model, you wouldn't be asking the same questions over and over about how to pick a niche, a keyword, how many searches, competition and finding a domain. It has all been laid out here and is incredibly easy to follow and put into action. John has over delivered with helpfulness in this thread alone.

I said it earlier but in case someone missed it...all it takes is to pick a niche, get a few keywords, buy a domain, put up a couple of pages of content and submit a few articles. Keep it simple and don't overcomplicate the process or you will never get anywhere. But please...read the entire thread and as Nike once said...JUST DO IT!

So, why not rather talk about the flip side of the coin. I wouldn't have brought this up had you not just posted what you did.

Thanks!
While I agree with what John said about either wanting it or not, I see many people who really do want it and still don't succeed.

For myself, I'm very passionate about what I do. I enjoy the business tremendously, and I enjoy the money.

But I appreciate your point - here are some thoughts that come to mind:

Succeeding in anything requires taking action and assuming some risk. You can minimize your risk in part by not spending too much on getting started - $47 is a lot less risky than $1999 - and avoiding those things that take an inordinate amount of time, expertise, or anything else. You can also minimize your risk by listening to what others have to say - avoid the controversial products or techniques.

The "taking action" thing is where a lot of people get stuck. For me, it's a lot easier taking action with something I feel I thoroughly understand. In this case, between this thread and John's course, anyone can gain enough understanding to feel confident about taking action.

I've also found that "big" things are much harder to move on that "small" things. If something seems big, complex, very involved, I break it down into more manageable 'chunks' and set myself up a list of 'bite-sized' tasks, things that I can accomplish in a single sitting, ideally in less than a half-hour. While I may have a hard time taking action on some large, nebulous project, I can usually push myself to bang through smaller tasks, such as just finding a good keyword/phrase, or just registering a domain name, or just writing one article.

Not only does this give me a sense of accomplishment, but I get to see my progress, what's left to be done, etc. Plus, if I've listed out a number of small tasks, and I get hung up on one of them, I can put it aside and have something else productive to accomplish.

I also try to 'schedule' my work time. For instance, "For this business, I'm going to devote two hours tomorrow morning, between 10-12, and two hours in the evening, between 7-9". I can then list out my smaller tasks:

10-10:30am - pick a product niche, browse Amazon and Ebay, and come up with a list of 25 potential keywords/phrases.

Take a few minutes to get some coffee.

10:40-11:20am - Go through my list checking the search volume and competing pages for each of my keywords/phrases.

11:30-12:00 - Find and register a keyword/phrase domain name.

7-7:50pm - Grab text from product pages, reviews, Wikipedia, etc., combine them, and re-write into one 500-word page for my website.

Take a few minutes to have a snack.

8-9:00pm - Write one 300-word article and submit it to Ezinearticles

I'm also big on rewards. I often set myself goals - realistic ones - and rewards, so for example I might do something like "write 5 articles and get them all submitted to article directories - complete that, and then take yourself out for ice cream."

If I find myself getting frustrated, stuck, or 'spinning my wheels' without any real productivity, I'll try to 'interrupt' the cycle - take a shower, go out for a walk, do the dishes, something that completely changes the environment for a period.

Hope that helps~

There is nothing in the AdSense terms and conditions that forbid you from having a high CTR. A high CTR is sometimes a sign of click fraud, so it's something Google looks at, but there's nothing that says you can't have a high CTR.

Do you have a link to the Adsense TOS that backs up what you believe? I'm sure that all of us here would like to see where Google put that part in.

Well, maybe you don't know *everything* about adsense optimization....

How in the world could it be possible to forbid webmasters to have a CTR >15% ??

Do we need to start hiding the ads if CTR is too high? ...lol...

I would worry if CTR is below 15%............

Exactly!

It's simply, but not easy. John's course (along with this thread) has given you everything you need to make this work. And yet there are still people asking questions that have been answered a million times already.

Part of being successful, at anything, is taking initiative and finding things out ON YOUR OWN. It also means to take action and adjust as you go along.

I get it, we all want to have everything laid out before us before we take that first step. Reality is, it will NEVER be perfect. So stop wasting time and get moving already. Again, make corrections as you go.

If I want to drive from NYC to FL and I hit a detour along the way, that's fine. I go around it. I adjust my course. But I still eventually end up in FL. I don't allow it to sidetrack me so much that I end up in TX.

People also tend to overcomplicate things.

Complicated = Interesting
Simple = boring

So people make it harder than it has to be just so it is more interesting to them and gives them some sort of accomplishment if they actually complete it.

I do no other backlinking stuff (don't enjoy any other approach).

2) I really do not care about getting affiliate sales on my sites, so
no, I do not spend much time searching for the best affiliate programs.
Many of my sites do not even have affiliate links on them yet.

Like I mentioned before, I have my goals with Adsense and could go
on forever trying to implement the "best" strategy, or the "best" way
to make money, or the "best" this or that... Know what I mean? That
alone would cause me to lose focus.

- John

So you are saying to use the keyword as your anchor text in the article. But in that case aren't you optimizing for it?

Also what does SOC stand for...is that a MNF term?

Please, I've asked that these types of questions pertaining to my

Yeah I don't always see such high rates, but those 50%,
75% and the occasional 100% does show itself often.

It all depends on how targeted your sites are, and
how less of a distraction your template is from other
links.

Hi John,

I would really like to thank you from bottom of my heart. Your advice, suggestions are really something to treasure for lifetime and follow. I have followed your ebook and did everything you said except I am adding my own guts to it.
I choose some a niche keyword which has some competition SOC in 90's and Search Count 6K + and there are plenty of advertisers with high Adwords. I even built a wordpress theme exactly like your replica site and also submitted articles to Ezine and Go.
Now its wait and watch game when those articles will be published by Ezine and Go. Once they do and my site get indexed I will put more content pages and publish more articles to directories. So google can pick it up quickly.

I am trying a little different than you just to see how it goes.

John,

just got your email about the WP theme/template coming out.

and not a moment too soon as I was actually searching online for WP themes when your email hit my inbox.

so when is this WP theme that looks exactly like your sites coming out?

This week?

next week?

Or maybe you could point us to the warrior member who is developing it.

thanks for the heads up John.

John it seems like your course is being made to the public because of this forums. I'm suggesting a member area on your site where we could discuss this stuff openly.
Also, just like what I mentioned on my email: because of the specificity of the program, it will lead to oversaturation and will hurt you and everybody that bought and invested in this course when Google starts sandboxing our sites.

What?!

How will it lead to oversaturation? For once, I have to disagree with someone releasing a product and then worrying about over saturation. Other times I would agree and worry about the market becoming to saturated.

But this won't be oversaturated because there are PLENTY of niches to go after. I personally have a list of over 600 keyword phrases to go after. About 75% have atleast 1,000 exact searches per month. 85% of them have a SOC of 50 or below. 100% of them are under 100 SOC.

Yes let me address your questions:

1) A members area MAY come about, but I'm only 1 man and unless
I charge a monthly fee
, I cannot reasonable moderate and answer all
of the posts that would be made.

2) There is no way for this course to get saturated. There is just too
many niches out there. I can probably list 1,000 of them from my home
alone, with thousands more after that.

3) About sandboxing, yes this may be an issue if everyone uses the
exact same dimensions in their templates, something I will be
discussing more in my upcoming videos.

Guys,

don´t you think that Google can spend some money to get into the course if they really want? I expect that this happens when a brand new method or strategy is posted here every time. But I don´t fear for anything for this course because John made it quite clear that we are now doing a real business with a real value, even for Google´s customers. As long as everybody does what the course stands for we are delivering real content, so why should someone try to hurt us?

Rich,

This course is not some "secret smash Google" weapon that they would
want destroyed.

It's all basic SEO and niche research, just laid out in a reasonable manner.

And second, everyone deserves to get the truth about building niche
sites and making a good income, so I cannot agree on the idea of saying
"no" to helping out new people.

Finally someone like myself comes along and really puts all of the basic
concepts of niche marketing into an easy-to-read course, and I'm
supposed to take it off the market because you don't want anyone else
to see the same success?

Also, Google thrives from content niche sites. They want publishers
to succeed in an honest manner.

Build bigger websites. It has already happened to me. Google de-indexed most of my mini sites after 3 days of Adsense earnings. Reason: sites don't meet their quality guidelines.

Questions to John:

Have you noticed any changes in the way Google indexes/ranks new websites lately?

How long does it take for your new sites to start moving up the SERPS now?

Anything different compared to, say, last month or the month before that?

Nope, all is good.

As always, every site has different results.

Anything different compared to, say, last month or the month before that?
Yes, every day!

The search engines are always changing up, and every day/week/month
brings in different results.

Man this is a lot of work, like John said.
But it's working for me.

Most people don't like work and unless they see immediate results, quit. And they even quit with immediate results most of the time

Very few people who get the course will do much if anything. A few will, and even fewer will follow it longer term. That's just reality.

Remember if you work hard for a few years you just might get rich quick, otherwise forget it. Most people won't forget it and will be forever chasing the "get rich quick" while looking for coins in the coach to buy a six pack of Bud (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Some of us, like me, have the opposite problem. We don 't know when to quit

Great information John, thanks! That is how I started out with building adsense type sites. I guess the key is to find those niches that can generate traffic.

Were you doing BH methods?

what exactly made Google de-index your sites after only three days?

were your sites following John's method?

I've gone thru John's method, and it's legit as legit gets.

besides, John has been earning for months now, without any problems, so I don't think it's the micro niche situation that is a problem but maybe just the way you built your sites or even promoted them.

I could be wrong, though.

care to tell us more?

Email is better. Check my sig.

And I'm not offended at all, just do not want to ruin this thread
for everyone else by getting shut down. The forum is not meant
to be a communication route - that's what email is for.

Many a thread has been locked or deleted for such events.

Business changes faster than ever now and internet businesses change the fastest. Whatever you do with this course, do not count on it being a stable source of income for the indefinite future. Make and save what you can always keeping your eye open for the next thing because something will likely bring it down sometime in the future.

That is just my two cents worth from someone who is not very experienced in internet marketing, YET!

Anyway, one thing I am wondering about at I get my first site and articles ready. Does anyone have experience on submitting the same article to more than one directory? Does submitting the article to Ezine and then other directories somehow lessen the effectiveness of the article? I'm am talking about manual submissions.

Most IM methods decay over time. Either too many people doing the same thing allow the search engines to spot the footprint, or the search engines generally improve.

This technique is a good one, the ones that last the longest with their sites will be the ones that don't copy the template down to the last word and pixel. All you do by doing that is help others ferret out your niche and give google a better, clearer foot print. As John says REPEATEDLY, don't be afraid to experiment. I think some people are running with this as if a search engine can never change or adapt. It can and will.

I found over a dozen of these sites today in google, just putting together the common things many have done on these sites. If I can do that, so can others. I'm not even that savvy with google.

It's very good that John is going to show how to make a site in NVU, the randomness that people will impart by creating these on their own is only a good thing.

Think about some of the techniques that have gone before. Bans, HyperVRE and countless other keyword based page builders. How are those sites doing today? If everyone builds these sites the same way, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what is going to happen.

There are two roads one can follow. Say to hell with everyone, I'm putting up a cookie cutter clone cause I'm to damn lazy to change anything and enjoy the rapidly dwindling profits, or put some work into it and enjoy them longer term.

Actually I'm betting on both options happen. Some will go the quick route and get toasted by google after a short while and others will go the second route and prosper for long term.

Also those going the second route can ferret out those sandboxed sites and take that niche and build a site that performs around it.

This may be one time when the masses of asses don't ruin the technique for all. That would be a refreshing change.

look at the big picture,

basically we are finding high demand, low competition, weak soc
keywords, for physical products, then creating a high converting template,
and offering useful unique content

I first learned from James Martell, he did the same thing except for larger sites using wordtracker.

nicheprofitclassroom is finding high demand low competition keywords for selling info products and building a list, plus a high converting template and opt-in box

the internet is huge, there will never be saturation, and there are endless
niche opportunities to be found

maybe google will de-index similar templates, I don't know, but what about all the blogger blogs or default wordpress templates people use or templates people download, as long as the content is unique I would hope there is no problem

but it is always better not to copy exactly

Anyway John, I have a question if a site has a traffic 25000/month then what is the expected income from Google adsense. I am just curious. Sounds you are a master in this.

Thanks in advance.

Well, I've just found my new site on the top of page 2 on Google after 3 days. Going to hammer the article marketing now to push it up.

One thing I have noticed, a few people have asked about plural or singular keywords. I've noticed with Google that if you do an exact phrase search for the singular keyword eg. "widget" and your page title is "widgets" it will show up in the SERPS but not in bold.

On a page of results, the bold ones really pull your eye in. So it may be worth making sure your page title is exactly spelt as your intended keyword so that IF somebody does an exact phrase search, you show up in bold.

This "course" will not ruin it for the masses. Read this thread and most people who filled it with their questions will never succeed. It's more than obvious. They need someone who holds their hands until the moment Google sends a check (sorry, if this offends anyone, but that is the truth). You over-analyze, you partially worry about stuff that is just ridiculous. John had already supplied so much information that you could have started your new adsense empire weeks ago, but you are still asking questions about details that will not matter. You worry about spending a few bucks on a domain name .. come on. Do you expect to start any kind of business without investing some money?!

So, personally I think this thread has lost its usefulness about 18 or 19 pages ago. Whoever continues to ask questions at this point will never get it. There is a only a small number of people who seemed to have taken action. Good luck and all the best to you (that includes myself I guess).

Have a question that I dont think has been asked. Ive never signed up for an Adsense account would it be smart to sign up now knowing that a human reviewer will review my template or create my first site with enough pages so that it can pass the initial human review before they accept me as an Adsense publisher.
