    I was writing to another thread and decided, why not make this a full blown thread for people to read and share

    Most people just talk

    But I'm here to show you real results

    Earnings Proof

    [​IMG]

    I spent one week setting up this project and a $500 investment,
    and this project is earning me $1.5k a month. I've received a $20k buy out
    offer for this site as well which I've turned down. My email list
    is growing everyday as well which I get paid to send out promotion emails.

    Earnings from one site: $1,500 last month ($1,400 from Adsense, $100 from sponsorship content)

    How did I do it?

    Google News Approval

    1. Good News Template Theme:

    [​IMG]

    This one's guaranteed to get you approved 9 out of 10 times
    Not sure if I can post a link to it or not, I don't want to look like I'm endorsing or advertising it..

    2. Follow the Google News Webmaster Guidelines:
    https://support.google.com/news/publisher/answer/40787?hl=en

    3. Hire Writers:
    [​IMG]

    I use oDesk and find article writers related to my niche at $2 per 500 words for
    perfect english. I have them rewrite articles from other news sites and use
    copyscape to make sure it's perfect and not duplicate content.
    Articles should have unique and captivating titles.

    Specs:
    You need 150 articles spread over 5 months, and 5 categories.
    Backdate these articles. And when you apply for google news, start
    writing 5-10 per day.

    Additional:
    -High Quality Logo
    -About Us Page with Real Phone Numbers (Grasshopper is good)
    -Google will NOT verify address or mailbox

    How To Scale?

    Just simply write more articles and have your writers target good keywords

    There's not much to it! This is no secret. Everyone knows how to do this already.
    I bet I'll get one poster below saying that I didn't share anything new. But I bet
    that poster only has read this method before and never tried to take any action.


    If you take action today, in six months, I promise you'll have a Google News Approved site.
    If you take no action, you will be reading the next thread tomorrow waiting for the next
    best method to come out..

    If you have questions post before, if you want to talk privately about your site,
    shoot me a message.

    Ah yes! Hoping to inspire some ideas

    Want to post it but not sure if I am allowed to or not - I got infraction once for posting external link :/

    Also forgot to mention...

    This is my organic traffic:[​IMG]

    Ranking for almost every major stock ticker symbol, with no backlink building at all

    I have my team write lots of articles about facebook, apple, twitter, tesla, etc. and it brings me good traffic

    Thanks for the share!

    Seems you have a very high bounce rate on your organic traffic though....

    Currently all the content I have are just rewritten and written by my writers

    I will later expand to quality content (which may cost more) but I hope people will stay longer

    Most of these content are timely and only last for a few hours so I don't want to invest too much into content yet

    Hi Candybar, thanks for sharing first of all.

    One question, what do you use in terms of SEO and social media sharing for this website?

    Just by being google news approved, I'm automatically ranking for keywords on any news article
    I write about

    I can rank for a keyword in just 10 minutes - but my site will only last for 30 minutes or so
    for that keyword or maybe up to an hour

    Second, I'm using multiple only wire accounts, twitter posts in order to bring social attention
    to my posts - but I don't rely on them for traffic
