    Lightbulb How I make 15K a month at AdSense

    Recently I made a post on BHW with this adsense screenshot and lots of people wanted to know how it's done.

    here's how it's done:

    I start with keyword lists from adsenseheaven dot com which guesstimates the most expensive keywords to bid on in the PPC AdWords side of the Google ad world. I generally ignore the top 1000, as they are very competitive and saturated. I am not concerned with the top payouts.

    I store this data every month in a mySQL database with the previous months data, and over time I am able to see which phrases are consistently in the lists and unlikely to disappear. I call them long term performers.

    I cross check each phrase with the number of pages currently indexed in google, to see how much competition there is for a each key phrase. It's usually easier to land a top 10 first page SERP position if there is less competition for the phrase.

    I also cross check each phrase with google trends data which has an RSS feed which is also collected and stored in a seperate SQL database hourly. If an adsenseheaven keyphrase is found to appear in my Google trends history database, it's flagged as hot. If there's less than a million indexed pages it's further flagged as a top candidate for a dedicated microsite armada.

    Once a month after the new list is released I analyze the data after it's been processed and I pick a shortlist of hot key phrases that I am going to ramp up over the next few weeks.

    For this lesson the phrase I've selected is 'Acai Berry'.

    The estimated cost for the top position according to the adsense heaven list is $19, and it also appears multiple times in my Google trends history data. That means I'm probably going to make at least $5 for each AdSense click, and there's a lot of people searching for it.

    I head over my favorite registrar and find a domain name which contains the keyword at the beginning of the domain. Contrary to popular belief, the gTLD is irrelevant. I find that .info works just as well as a .com with all things otherwise equal. Get the new domain's DNS setup, and your webserver configured. Install your favorite Open Source CMS into the Docroot and pick a nice template which looks clean. Avoid dark colored themes. Make a nice graphic for your site logo position which contains your root keyword. (yes googlebots can read keywords with OCR in your site logo images).

    You now have the framework for your microsite, and a place to put your articles.

    Now we're going to mine long tail keywords for the selected phrase to use as subjects of my microsite subpages based on the root keyphrase. I use a couple different places for this, a good one for noobs is freekeywords.wordtracker.com. I input the root phrase 'Acai Berry' and save the top 50 results into a text file. For this example I'll limit to the top 5 after the root.

    Acai Berry at Wordtracker
    7,401 searches (top 100 only)
    Searches Keyword
    4679 acai berry <- ignored, it's the root phrase
    371 acai berries <- variant of root phase
    238 acai berry supreme 1
    220 acai berry information 2
    181 acai berry research 3
    149 acai berry juice 4
    125 acai berry diet 5
    You can use however many you want. The more you have, the bigger your site will be, and the more expensive it will be to ramp up.

    I outsource most of my article writing to Justin at No Doubt Marketing. I pay them around $8 for each original article, and they are not scraped together garbage. I order 1 article for each long tail keyphrase. In 12-24 hours they'll begin arriving in a steady stream to my inbox. It's not uncommon to have 25-50 articles for your project. Your goal is to build a site which contains everything someone would ever want to know about your root keyword. It's also not uncommon for me to have $500-$1000 into each microsite by the time it's done. But, I make that back in two days.

    There are lots of other article writing services out there, and there is a lot of grey area. Some are more readable than others, and the general rule is you get what you pay for. I spent a few months testing all the top ghostwriters who advertised their services on digitalpoint, and some are very bad. I do not use scraped articles or spun articles from aggregation sites like ezinearticles.

    Now you have some original high quality meat for your microsite which is truly original content and is highly targetted for each long tail keyphrase. Create a content item on your CMS for each one, putting the longtail phrase in a H1 tag, the Title, and the Meta description. Do not make the title and meta description identical or the latter will be ignored. Insert the article, and do your html markup to split it into paragraphs, and add floating divs for your google adsense and CPA offers.

    Over the course of the next few weeks, repeat this process as your longtail articles arrive. By the third week you will have a pretty large site which is very useful and informative. It doesn't read like it was written by robots.

    At the same time, you work on link building. I will look at who is already ranking for the keyphrases I am looking to rank for, and I will attempt to contact each of the webmasters. It's easy to do a whois lookup on a domain (firefox has a plugin to do it from serp pages) and fire off an email to them. If they have a working phone number listed (they are required to) give them a call. I have a vonage account so I get unlimited long distance. I also have a telemarketing background so I am good at cold calling webmasters and socially engineering them into adding links.

    You will mostly get voicemails, so leave a nice message which is very brief and explains you have a relevant website which wants to become link partners. When you get the webmaster on the phone live, tell him how great their website is, how you added a link to it on your blogroll, and how it would help their rankings to link to your related site which is full of good content.

    Some people will tell you to go fuck yourself, so you just move on. There are going to be hundreds of thousands of other sites to contact, so don't spend too much time with each one. I will ask them for their AIM handles so I can keep track of them. (did I mention I create a new AIM/Gmail for each new microsite?)

    There are lots of other ways to get links. I've tried most of them, and they all work. You can donate money to open source organizations which have a 'thank you' page. Most of them will include a link if your donation is over a certain threshhold. Check for nofollows and disallows in the robots.txt first.

    You can do a google blog search for your keyword and post an on topic comment which contains a single link to your homepage. Most places will leave your comment in the moderation cue forever, but others will publish it. You have a better chance of your comment getting published if your comment contains the keywords they are trying to rank for. Blog owners don't want comments that throw their keyword density off.

    You can search for forum posts using google which contain your keyword in the title tags and post a useful something into the thread. Don't just spam your URL or clearly it's going to get removed. It's also a good idea to make a few posts in other threads before you do any link dropping so you don't have 1 post when you do it

    There is roughly 260 million websites which will give you a free blog. Create a new one everyday somewhere new and make a couple posts about your keyphrases. You can take snippits out of your articles and rewrite them into blog posts, or even purchase some of that 'low quality' filler articles I spoke of earlier and use that for your free blogs. Be sure to choose good anchors when linking to your main moneysite.

    The bottom line is get as many links as you can, and spread them out as far apart as you can. You don't want to get too many links in a day or it will appear unnatural. So take your time, and work a little bit on each microsite every day. Try to make sure every microsite gets at least one quality inlink every single day from somewhere.

    One final observation: The longer a Google AdSense unit has been deployed, the more it's worth. Some of my top performing units are several years old. I think after a certain time they're internally flagged and start to show the top paying ads.

    Ok I'm tired of writing now, and you're certainly tired of reading. I'll check back for questions later and try to follow up.

    Go get em, Ninjas!

    Nice post.

    $8/article seems steep, how many words is an article?

    Do you outsource your link building or do you do all of it yourself?

    its simply a nice proof of someone who learned all there is to learn about 1 method: working arround with adsense.

    trying to get myself sticking with only 1 method..

    wow that is how it id done.
    the thing I took away from this was that original and well written content tops the junk spit out by robots anyday.
    Doug got the traffic because he provides real value to his visitors.
    The scraped content and rewrites does not do that effectively.
    This gives me motivation to write 5 unique articles daily after researching and post them to my blog.
    Thanks.

    So how many microsites do you operate to accumulate that 15K?

    Also how many free blogs do you operate to point links at your main sites?

    I have put together sites like this myself and ranked well surprisingly quickly.

    One question though, your microsites, are they blogs or standard sites???

    This is cool ! You own the unique method of keyword research and getting content.

    The key is, how you manage to scale up so many minisite ?

    thanks for the informational post... I knew of most of those tools you posted but never put them in the same order to maximize my site like you layed out.

    your also pointing out that unique/GOOD content is key, i think thats becoming a overlooked point more and more nowadays.

    can you get back to my pm i sent last night? its nothing asking for secret methods or anything along those lines, haha- just something I saw you were doing which I am very curious on...

    Thanks for the great info - I would definitely use it if I weren't banned (I was adsense banned from my whitehat site before ever even starting doing anything blackhat) anyone know if this would work w/ other networks like adbrite?

    very interesting methods and ways of implementing the idea. Its not simple to work with this method, especialy on the DB part. So be careful!

    I think this is a great example of putting in the actual work. So often we try to automate things to our own loss. He puts in an extreeme amount of time to determine what keywords are going to make money long term and are worth the investment. Then he puts in the time and the money to create a REAL quality site that is worthwhile to his visitors and makes him money.

    Thanks for the share and keep up the hard work!

    Knowing what you know now, if you had to start from scratch how long do you think (conservatively) would it take you to hit the 10K per month level?

    Great post.

    With the adsense lists, how many keywords do you buy?

    Cheers

    Great Post, definitely a keeper.

    Question - you mention using a mySQL database to keep track of the AdSense keywords. Is this database a commercial product or one that you whipped up yourself using mySQL? I'm curious because I'm currently building a mySQL database to keep track of all my marketing efforts and could always use some good ideas.

    It's really not that steep considering I end up with a very high quality site that will survive any manual review.
    I do most of the link building myself, though I do toy with the idea of opening an office full of telemarker link buldiers.
    I could walk around like Lumburgh from Officespace and spew one liners from the movie.

    About 30, but they were constructed over the course of the past few years. More rapidly lately as more funds are coming in.

    For a very low fee you can start a LLC, and obtain a Federal EIN. With this new EIN (and a new bank account, email address, and IP) you can obtain a new adsense account. Be more careful next time! :P

    You nailed it, the key is high quality. Most of my cross checking is automated, but I manually review the results and create the micro sites by hand.

    Maybe a year? It always starts off slow, but once a site gets rolling it's like a snowball effect. This method is very much a long term strategy. It's also expensive for some folks just starting up. But if you contrast what it costs to start up a real brick and mortar business, it's really not very expensive at all. The key is finding stable key phrases which lots of advertisers are bidding on.

    Once a site becomes profitable leave it alone. Do not add any new javascripts or widgets. Move on to the next hot root key phrase, and always reinvest a portion of your monthly revenues back into new sites.

    I started off buying the 8K lists, but now I buy the biggest one every month. They need to roll out a damn subscription service already. There are other places you can use too, search for them on google.

    MySQL is a free open source database application which runs on just about everything. I run mine on a FreeBSD machine which sits in my office. The database architectures were custom designed for my needs.

    Now that 30, is that 30 main "microsites" as you call them with additional blogs pointing at them.... or does that 30 encompass everything, microsites and blogs.....

    30 main microsites. There is no adsense on any of the blogs.

    One of the most valuable posts i've ever read. This is how the pros do it, how they have the edge on us all, because they're prepared to go deeper and more actively into organizing and working at their system and their websites.

    My only question is, without you showing us your websites, can you somehow show us what they look like?

    It would just be interesting to see the layout etc.

    What a really nice layout, i like it.

    I do something similar with affiliate review sites. Maybe you've heard of Chris Rempel?

    I like Adsense and i'd like to make adsense sites the way i make affiliate sites but i don't have confidence in adsense because it can change so quickly. It doesn't feel reliable enough.

    Thanks man, i'd love to have a good crack at it, but i've already promised myself i'd work at my affiliate minisites and perfect my own system.

    That site looks like xsitepro could throw up something like that, I haven't used XSP in a while...when you mentioned CMS I was thinking wordpress etc...what CMS are you using btw?...

    I was just fiddling with the idea of ditching wordpress (I don't really like code and customization) for a while and just going back to XSP which spits out sites pretty fast, at times faster than going through the whole WP install and customize routine...
