That's coming soon. All inquiries for the wordpress theme are to go to John, and not me. I've finished the theme (and use it ) and just last night finished the install video to help everyone out. Once i get the video over to john for you guys, we should be a rockin' and a rollin'

Does your adsense course in your sig contain the up to date info you gleaned as per page 1 ?

I might be incorrect, but I think John does have the multiple reseller accounts with Hostgator. This was discussed many pages back, and if I'm remembering correctly, he has gone with the reseller accounts in case he ever wants to sell any of his sites.

But maybe John can confirm if this is correct.

Try to keep your CTR low? Is that a joke? If not, that is *very* bad advice.

Try to raise your CTR as high as you can. And stay well within the TOS.

But even if Google does freak out and sand box your site (sadly, this did happen to one of my NON-Adsense sites for no apparent reason), you could just add some other PPC ads to your site like the new MS/Yahoo, and others. I'm not sure how those will pay compared to Google though.

I agree.

I think the point (which I completely disagree with) is that a low CTR will mean that Google won't manually visit your website.

However the point of this entire thread is about creating good quality websites, with good content (targetted around a very specific low hanging fruit keyword).

A good website with good content is fine by Google. Hence there's no problem with being manually reviewed, hence there's no problem with a high CTR.

There are billions upon billions of web pages out there and its impossible for Google to keep and eye over all of them which is why some of these guys can have good standing accounts for years and years. Its when you start to do things to get your site(s) notice ala footprints where you draw the attention to yourself from Google.

I saw the Matrix recently and there was a scene in the movie when Neo (Kenu Reeves) was waking up to the truth and he escaped the bubble. In that scene he popped out of the bubble which drew that lil machine (Google) to himself because it was obvious something was diffrent with that particular bubble than the other billions and billions of other bubbles that were shown in the background.

Kinda weird analagy lol but Im sure those who seen The Matrix get what Im trying to say and I promise I didnt smoke anything atleast not the day I saw The Matrix

No, because over time your articles will get picked up by other
webmasters and thus - more backlinks.

Hi John,
One quick question - are you able to say roughly how many words per page you tend to use on your websites?

I know it will vary, but is it around the (say) 400/500 word mark or do you go for very content rich, 1000+ word pages on average? Just wondering what you shoot for on a typical average site.

Thanks,
Tristan

I tend to aim for around 500 words too. Am not sure why either, I guess it just seems like ~350 words is quite bare on a page, and over 700 words is ample. So I aim for 500. Anywhoo thanks a lot for the reply

Too few words and you'll miss out on long-tail traffic. Too many words and there's too much for your visitors to do (other than click on the ads).

On my pages, 500-600 seems about right to me, too. I do the same for the articles I write for EZA with this system, too.

For traditional article marketing, I shoot for 350+/- for better click-through.

Thanks John,

I've not had the time to read the first 15 pages or so indepth but it seems like this is something that could clearly be outsourced once the training woes and hassle were overcome.

Would that be an accurate assesment or do any of the elements require attention that's beyond the average outsourcer?

I have heard about a word press theme that is like John's template...can anyone give me a link to it ? I have set up 3 sites using an html template that I created with DW to follow John's theme, however, I find it a real pain to update every little thing on every page when making adjustments

thanks

Yes outsourcing can always be an option when you are ready.

I know John says some sites only take a few links for him to rank, but I have a feeling things won't be such a smooth ride for me, so I'll just knock out a bunch at once.

I found an author on EZA that I like, and I rewrite all her articles for fatties and just submit them back to EZA. (They approve them all in about a day and a half.) My articles have nothing to do with my sites, and I just put my links for my sites in my resource box. I don't know what kind of results I'll get with that, but that's what I'm doing.

Last week, I got 85 or so article approved with EZA for 4 sites, and I'm not ranked anywhwere yet. I'm on pace for that this week. I guess I have to be patient and I also know there are plenty of other variables involved.

I have 4 sites builts now and that's enough. I want to see if I can make some money with those. So, I'm just going to be an article writing backlinking fool for a bit.

I figure if I can't somehow manage to get those sites ranked and make some money than I suck and maybe should go back to the drawing board, give up, or some nonsense like that.
man I wish EZA were passing my articles that fast..I have 6 pending from over 7 days ago...all are in the first stage...I don't know whats going on with them, it has never taken more than a few days at most...I think I will write to them and get on their case a little...

I have been sending out to other directories though, so at least I am getting some stuff out there...

You did 85 articles in one week ? thats fantastic...I wish I could pump them out that fast...If I average 3-5 in a day I'm doing good....It will take me all afternoon just to get that many done... I guess I'm just a slow poke...must try to get faster...!

Good luck with your sites !

This is a great thread and the information provided by John is invaluable. All you need is to take action. I made two of my sites based on this formula and I purchased one of my domain earlier so that doesnt contain the main keywords. I made a seperate page and use the main keyword as a page name. Submitted only two articles and with in a week I got on first page of goolge (rank 8th) and for another keyword I am on second page. I hope after submiting few more articles I will be on top 5 . Thanks John for this simple but highly effective strategy.

I've had the same problem this week, took over a week to get approved. Maybe they are short-staffed!

I was hoping I would be promoted to Platium status but I wasnt - I've submitted 65 good quality articles. Does anyone know how long it takes or how many articles to get promoted to Platium status in Ezine?

Hey,

Any update on this? Have you regained the rankings? Its been a month, would love to know how things are going for you.

So I have 24 sites made but only have adsense on 6 of them because the other ones are poorly ranked and receiving no traffic. I am going to keep plugging at these sites to get them to make at least $50 per day before I create more.

What kind of success are you guys having?

I currently have 47 potentially good domains purchased. I decided to really take action since I saw good results after only a few sites on the first page.

Only about 10 are indexed and on the first page so far in positions 5-10. The rest have not been indexed yet/I am still working on some.

I am averaging $15 a day in about 2 weeks of work. Not bad I think.

P.S. This is with no back links. I decided once most of the sites are indexed I will start getting back links for the sites with best results. These will probably be the ones that rank on the first page even without backlinks or close to it (I already have 10 of them as I mentioned above).

This way I will waste less time on harder niches which might never get good rankings. I'd rather go after the easier niches which I am already ranked well for and I know have a permanent chance on the first page. Next I will dominate them, then work on the harder ones last, or even if I think it looks too hard, just abandon them and find more easier niches. So far my failure rate at guessing if I will get to the first page is about 15-20%.

Yes, I realize I might be wasting money but honestly why write more articles then I have to? There are so many extremely low competition niches available, which I finally realized myself. I don't mind buying 100 or more sites if it comes down to it, as long as I am making that back than its nothing. To make money in business you need to spend some. It's only a once a year payment so I've got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Or anyways that's how I see it.... but hey there are so many different angles you can take this from this is just the way I am doing it.

If my plan fails than I definitely will not give up. Success is my one and only option.

Wish you all good luck!

Hi,

I've been article marketing for a couple of years for some of my other websites and I recently went looking for my articles on other peoples sites using Googles' exact phrase match. I've noticed that 9 times out of ten, if there is anchor text in my resource box, the links are NOT active on other peoples pages. Only if I've put a 'www.foobarwidget.com' in the actual text are the links active.

So my question is, because Ezine only accept 2 links in the resource box, when promoting your main home page and an internal page with anchor text keywords, would it in fact be better to promote your homepage with 'www.foobarwidget.com' rather than 'anchor text keyword' that may end up not getting any link juice?

Any thoughts.

Thanks

I was just thinking the same, mentality and perseverance are the two factors that seperate the success and the failures.

I am averaging $15 a day in about 2 weeks of work. Not bad I think.

P.S. This is with no back links. I decided once most of the sites are indexed I will start getting back links for the sites with best results. These will probably be the ones that rank on the first page even without backlinks or close to it (I already have 10 of them as I mentioned above).

This way I will waste less time on harder niches which might never get good rankings. I'd rather go after the easier niches which I am already ranked well for and I know have a permanent chance on the first page. Next I will dominate them, then work on the harder ones last, or even if I think it looks too hard, just abandon them and find more easier niches. So far my failure rate at guessing if I will get to the first page is about 15-20%.

Yes, I realize I might be wasting money but honestly why write more articles then I have to? There are so many extremely low competition niches available, which I finally realized myself. I don't mind buying 100 or more sites if it comes down to it, as long as I am making that back than its nothing. To make money in business you need to spend some. It's only a once a year payment so I've got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Good job and well done on the scaling ,lesson here for a lot of folks, think big, act big.

John....

I've located a keyword that garners about 7500 searches per month. However, the top 10 spots are as follows:

bizrate
bizrate
helium
helium
docstoc
ezinearticles
tootoomart
epinions
------------ (gives niche away)

Although many of these are high PR sites, none of them is niche specific and 3-5 of them are articles and such. Should I be following the same rule for these that you follow when seeing Amazon at the top of the page for a niche (run to the niche?).

If you're not doing anything blackhat and are following the AdSense Terms and Conditions (including the Program Policies -- those are part of the T&C) then you have nothing to fear with a high CTR.

Remember that Google makes money when surfers click ads. High CTRs are good for Google, too!

well I'm getting hung up exactly where I feared; analysis paralysis.

As far as the overall picture goes I think I get it. Get keywords that
- you can reach position 1-5'ish on the first page
- you can monetize
- have low competition
- will get enough searches per day/month to make it worth pursuing

I downloaded the trial version of Market Samurai (great tool, just seems slow to me). I have found about 3-4 niche keywords that I really like but since they're not 'perfect' I get worried (some competition has a PR of 2-3, some have good SEO, some have a few backlinks etc).

When you guys pick a keyword, do you generally just pick ones that are completely wide open (competition has no backlinks, no PR, horrible SEO, no content, etc) or do you guys say screw it and pick up keywords that are not perfect but you think you can improve upon? Gah, it's always the analysis that gets me.

I know the feeling well. I am very new to this, but I don't think there is a perfect keyword. You just need to find some decent keywords and take action. Maybe the competition at the top is a little tougher than you would like. You won't know for sure until you try, but even if it turns out to be tough to hit the top 5, it may just take a little extra backlinking. Maybe a lot more backlinking. It's not the end of the world.

Also, you're not going to get rich off one site. Well, you might get lucky and find a real earner, but you won't find it with one roll of the dice. You need to consistently put sites up and follow a plan to get them ranking. Will some fail to meet your expectations? Certainly. Will you grow your income if you stick with it? Absolutely.

Like I said, I know how you feel. I was following Steve Crooke's adsense strategy for my first site. I think it is a good system, but with it I picked one site to work on. It has not done well. I just didn't know enough when I started to know that I was going into an unbeatable niche. But you know how I learned that? I've been taking action. That site is not a failure because of what it taught me. I have a lot more to learn and every site I build is a learning opportunity. IMHO, John's system is much more newbie friendly and you should be fine.

Pick a couple and get started!

Vouche for Micro Niche Finder:

Now this took me about 4 hrs to find Im usually impatient and at one point I was just dumping anything into MNF and found a keyword 74,000 searches a month and it was in the green at 15 with 12,000 competing pages.

Thought I was dreaming because thats so odd so I restarted MNF again and once again the same results. Unfortunately I dont get paid again till next Wednesday so I cant register it I just pray that no one else finds it until I get some money.

MNF is a beast

Wow, that is awesome! Nice find.

I doubt you have anything to worry about between now and next week. There are just so many possibilities that the probability of someone finding this in the next week is very small, but if I was you I would beg, borrow or steal just so I could get started on this one ASAP.

Have you seen to Taco Bell commercial where the guy goes around collecting pennies from the 'Give a penny, take a penny' trays. You could always try that

Good luck with it, sounds like you have a great one.

What if i will build backlinks for keywords that do not exist on my site?
Example:

I build links with anchor text for specific keyword of which articles i don't have on my site.
Will this work?

Still happens to me, but I move my work like a train so it does not
bother me that it takes so long.

Fill the pipeline everyday with articles and then it will not matter how
long they take to get accepted, because new ones will be approved
every day.

Only if I've put a 'www.foobarwidget.com' in the actual text are the links active.

So my question is, because Ezine only accept 2 links in the resource box, when promoting your main home page and an internal page with anchor text keywords, would it in fact be better to promote your homepage with 'www.foobarwidget.com' rather than 'anchor text keyword' that may end up not getting any link juice?

Any thoughts.

Thanks
Sure, why not. Sounds smart to me.

My point is that it is impossible to tell you exactly what you should do, as
any little detail could make a site go one way or another.

Experience is the best teacher, while using other people's help as a
blueprint.

Does the keyword(s) have an apostrophe it it?

I'm new to MFN and I thought I found some really great keywords before I realized what was going on.

For example:

Children's Beds has a SOC of 0
Childrens Beds has a SOC of 1240


Just something to keep an eye out for.

Yeah, I use socialmarker.com to get them indexed. I don't really count this as backlinks. I usually ping a few of the bookmarks with pingler.com and then I get indexed within 2 weeks.

I double checked, tripled checked put the Heineken bottle down and checked again. It was an unreal feeling because Ive never seen the difference between the search count and the competition count off by that much. Ive checked with Market Samurai also and it showed similar results. Im gonna register both the .org and .net

Does market Samurai also show a competition rating? Why do you use MNF and not MS?

ezinearticles seems to discriminate individual accounts.

For instance I have a couple different accounts. One is platinum, another is basic plus, etc.

The basic plus account is what it is due to a few different articles getting rejected due to grammar issues.

I submitted an article and it got rejected on the basic plus account.

They cited spelling and grammar issues. There was zero spelling errors or grammar errors. I shoved this particular article through two different spelling and grammar checking applications to make sure it was perfect. It wasn't originally, but it was before I submitted it.

Being agitated I have perfect document on my hands being rejected I decided to write them and told them about what I've told you.

3 hours later they approved the article. Never heard back from them yet, and I don't really expect to.

I used the same applications to make one account platinum so I knew something was wrong when the article got rejected. It wasn't the article it was a human that was lazy that evidently noticed I had other articles rejected and just hit the deny button to get it over with.

FWIW YMMV.

Oh and d3t0x, good job man.

I fire up Micro Niche Finder to look for Micro Niches and If I see that MNF brought back in yellow or red tagged phrases I fire up Market Samurai to really dig into the words to see if it is indeed still possible to rank for a phrase. Sometimes it is I wouldnt ignore most of those yellow tagged phrases. Market Samurai has so many insane features like Rank Tracker which I'll utilize once I get a site indexed in the SERPS
