    Hello,

    1,5 years ago I made this post about how I was making $4500 a month with Adsense. You can find it here.

    A lot of things have changed since. For once, I have been banned by Google. All my websites got removed from the index forever. I still got my Adsense payments. I was using a similar method to Xfactor, and I genuinely thought it was whitehat. Well it wasn't lol and I got banned.

    Anyway fastrack to today, I have new websites since the ban and I made about $15000-$15500 In January. All from SEO websites. About $5000 with Adsense and the rest with affiliate products. My websites are pretty legit now and I'm not really scared about getting banned. I'm not gonna share them with you though, that's for sure.

    I'm bored. It's winter. I don't want to go out. Going on vacation soon.
    So I came back here for round 2. Ask away your questions about SEO and affiliate marketing.

    I use google keyword tool combined with niche refinery. Market samurai is not bad but I find it too slow to my taste so now I just export loads of info from the base keyword tool to niche refinery and sort all these keywords with stats of my interest depending if it's a homepage KW or page KW.

    Ya, some are still micro niches (5-8 pages) and I make money mostly on the domain searches. I have been having success with ranking inner pages now and it's starting to be an important part of my income.

    NONE of them are indispensable. The only thing they help are time vs money. A lot are shitty but when you find a few gems like scrapebox (especially for a one time payment) it's definitely worth it for all the time you end up saving. Obviously, it's easier to say this once you have decent income (I guess 50$+ a day?) but eventually you just want to cut down the time you take to do IM and tools/outsourcing become really important.

    Sure PM me it, maybe I can help you with ad placement. Btw, I find ezinearticles is really helpful for a strong backlink from article directories. Well, in the past some of my articles without any backlinks got PR2-4 which seems pretty helpful (but I do way more than ezine for backlinks obviously, some of my keywords are really competitive). Anyway, if you're article got rejected it's probably because of poor english... try to correct it or hire someone to do it for you. Ultimate though, its no big deal. plenty of websites have no ezine links and rank well, I just like it as one of my early links to a new website.

    Like 80, but 90% of my income is probably from 10 websites at most. A lot of them are websites that never ranked and I am still waiting for them to rank. A lot of them I used them to experiment with backlink methods or ended up being keywords that just did not end up doing anything.

    Also, I remove adsense from any website that makes under $3-5 with it, because I don't want shitty websites possibly banning me.

    So after you had all or your old sites de-indexed by google you made 80 completely new sites? Or are some of those still the same sites?

    Completely new ones, I had some money saved from the old ones to help me rebuild and outsource a lot of my stuff and to buy a lot of software/services. My old sites were completely banned... gone for evaaa

    Answered both of those above, but again. Some of them qualify as micro niches (under 10 pages) but if they make under $5 I remove adsense from them. Getting some pages ranking over time now so authority sites seem like they might make most of my money in a year... Right now it's less than 30% or so.

    how many pages you have in those "top earning websites" ? How long does it take for you to create 80 websites with outsourcing ?

    Hard to say, 5-10 page websites that receive a lot of searches and high CPC make a really good amount of my money but I usually ended up adding articles over time to them just to make them less spammy, most of my money still comes from domain searches. I think adding new articles on a consistent basis that are relevant to your website just ends up helping you over time.

    How long does it take to create 80 websites? Hmm well that's in about 1 year and a half. I can't say I have worked much in the last 4 months though, I maybe did 5 new websites in niches that interest me to possibly grow one day but nothing serious. I had a team doing me backlinks with blog comments (relevant to the posts and always do follow, I do not use scrapebox to do spam comments... I got banned once, think I"ll risk it in any way again? :p) while I basically did other stuff than IM such as traveling.

    EDIT: Oh ya, my goal is about $20 per website when I'm looking to open one. Like I said, why risk my adsense account? I also do CPA now on some of these websites instead of adsense, to not make my adsense income too high ( I'm just being super cautious).

    Are you still focusing on French sites?

    I ask because some of the backlink building methods you detail on your blog -- such as submitting articles to EzineArticles, Hubpages -- would probably lose much of their usefulness for French language sites, seeing as how these sites only accept articles written in English.

    Yup you're right, those strategies are what me and Alex do to rank our english sites. I stopped making french sites a while ago (however - they still make a good amount of my income currently). Actually Alex is the one whos been getting a lot of websites ranked using mostly article submission and I decided to copy that for my english sites that I had a hard time ranking (blog comments seem to work better for french sites than english). It's also been working well for my english sites and its whitehat which as you can guess is something I'm trying to do all the time now ( I never want to go back to being on my computer all day all week!)

    Basically fired my blog comment ppl to train new guys to do articles for me, I'm considering hiring someone to come work at my house for $10/hour lol so I can make sure he does a good job.
