Adsense Flipper Techniques

I’ve been spending a bit of time on the http://adsenseflippers.com site lately. It has some great information for those interested in building a lot of small websites fast.

I have decided to expand a bit in this direction and develop a lot more domains. I’ve been doing it halfheartedly but I think I can built a pretty good system using the tips Justin and Joe provide.

Will it give me instant wealth? No, I doubt it.  But I think its another way to reinvest my earnings from my TKA sites, as I am still smarting from the Panda slap.

I don’t know how people do this for a living.  I seem to constantly be spending all my IM income – which has hovered around $1000 a month for quite some time now – on trying new IM things, and not all of them are successful!

However,  I am acquiring a growing stable of web properties – on MY sites most importantly – and am having a lot of fun doing it.  Sure beats playing computer games!

1/12/11 – Here is an update on these efforts.  Since I’ve decided to do this on a sizable scale I’ve invested in quite a bit of software that will hopefully make it scalable.  I do realize now I’ve spent more than I thought…but hey, you got to spend money to make money. I could have done without some of these tools, but they are handy.  This is what I’ve bought so far.

WPTwin cloning software.

I tried the ManageWP software the Adsense Flipper guys like.  I found the concept great, but it only seemed to work properly some times.  I would be putzing around trying to clone a site with it and getting all sorts of errors.  The automatic upgrading feature seems to work great, but for now I’m more interested in quick clones.  I purchased WPTwin and it works great.

I setup a wordpress site with no posts, but with a range of plugins and themes installed and configured.  It very easily copies everything over to new domains and there is very little to do before putting up the relevant posts. I recommend WPTwin for anyone who uses wordpress a lot.

Godaddy Discount Domain Club.

I purchased this because I was sick of digging around for coupons. I’m not convinced this membership actually saves any money on new domains – though it may on renewals – but no longer having to scrounge for Godaddy coupons is worth it for me.

One tip to note, if you take the time to look for one last Godaddy coupon you can apply it to the purchase price of this. I was able to the my discount domain club membership for just a little under $70 after coupon.

Long Tail Pro

I’d read quite a few good reviews about Longtail Pro, some software developer by Spencer of www.nichepursuits.com.  It was plugged as a good way to speed up keyword research. I’ve never really felt the need for anything other than the now defunct Niche Refinery from TKA in combination with Googles Adwords tool before, but since I’m trying to scale-up I figure I will be doing a lot more of this type of analysis before.

I’ve used this software a few times since I bought it, and picked up about 15 domains based on its results so far. It would have taken me a long time to do what it does by hand – so long I might not even have bothered:)

This software is very handy if you are going to be doing a lot of niche site – where the primary limitation is making the process faster so can you do more.  I’d recommend it if you have the purchase price of $97, and are looking to do bulk site building in minimal time.

Godaddy Hosting

I spent a good chunk of change on getting 2 years of Godaddy hosting. I have to admit I regret doing this, I think I was just blindly mimic’ing Justin and Joe:)  The hosting itself seems fine, but I could have used one of my existing non-godaddy accounts just as easily.

About the only justification I have to myself is that I wanted this batch of rather thin sites separated from my existing ones.  But I  know I’m not really fooling Google by doing so. If you have decent hosting this is one expense you really don’t need to incur when entering the niche site business.

Link Emporer Reviews

1/1/2012 – I have been hearing a lot about the relatively new link emporer service.  I have to admit that it sounds intriguing.  Accordingly I have decided its time to try it out.  I’m going to document my experiences here.

First observation.  I applied using a discount code – so the price is 127 per month, rather than the normal $149.  Unfortunately it was processed at the full price (I am using the low end Alexander project).

I have shot off a note to them requesting resolution, so that will be a good test of what kind of people are behind the outfit.  No response yet, but it is the holiday weekend – so I’ll give them a couple of days before passing judgement.

The service itself?  They provide a series of 7 videos to watch when you first join. It is all relatively simple, and I created the maximum of 3 campaigns with a range of landing pages and keyword combinations.

I opted not to connect the application to Google analytics – healthy paranoia:)  Though to be fair I don’t have it installed on many sites, so it would be of limited use to me. I might try doing that later on if I keep the Link Emporer service however.

After about 12 hours a few link operations have kicked off. I have stuck with the default allocations, which uses a variety of different link services.  This I think is the potential strong point of this service, you can get a lot of link diversity while only paying for one service.

I have tried various other link building programs on and off, and several of them are covered in here.

Also worth noting is that the software interface is a simple web browser.  There is no software to install on your PC – or ona server that you are responsible for maintaining.  this means there is absolutely no hardware costs for you associated with your link emporer subscription.

On the negative side, you could probably do a lot of this linkbuilding thru cheap FiveRR and various other services. BUT, it would be al ot of work organizing, scheduling, keeping track of all those efforts.

With link emporer you may pay some for the privilige, but you can really get your linkbuilding efforts setup easily and then they are largely put on autopilot. That is the theory anyway!

Time will tell just how effective it is.  I’ll be sure to post some updates of my experience with the package in the near future, and provide a more comprehensive link emporer review.

UPDATE – 2/1/12

Well, just prior to my monthly renewal date I decided to go ahead and cancel this service.  I still think they have a great offering, but at the level I purchased (which I believe is not offered any more) the amount of linking for the dollar just wasn’t economical.  Their lowest level offering now is close to $500, which does include a lot more link credits per month.  For someone with my level of Internet Marketing income/expenses it really doesn’t make sense financially.  However, I can still see it being a value product for those offering high priced SEO services to deep pocketed businesses  – Link Emperor definitely does eliminate a whole lot of grunt work.

Overall I still  recommend the product, but only if you can have clients willing to cover the cost of their more expensive offerings – and honestly, not many of us do!
