    As we all know, since 2007, Google put the smack down on people using arbitrage techniques with their PPC campaigns. I have been thinking a lot about how to get around Google and find a back-door arbitrage method for some juicy profits.

    I've come up with an idea that may be very profitable. Its not really the same as arbitrage but its very similar, you'll be buying very cheap traffic and selling it for ten times what you paid. Here goes...


    :yield: First you need to do some KW research. Find some related keywords which are very high paying. Heres a few that I found from one of mine campaigns:

    "make money online today" = Bid is below first page bid estimate of $31.00

    "make money online from home" = Bid is below first page bid estimate of $16.00

    "make money online business" = Bid is below first page bid estimate of $14.00

    "make money at home online" = Bid is below first page bid estimate of $13.00


    4 KW phrases will do. Now, those prices are for the search network, we want the prices they're paying for the content network, which is normally three ties less, so I'll just divide them all by three = $10, $5.30, $4.66, $4.33


    Now we have four decent paying keywords we can sell traffic to.



    :yield: Next find KW phrases related to those above, only this time ones which have virtually no competition so they will be cheap.

    make money at online
    cash make money online
    you make money online
    make money by online
    make money doing online
    make money in online


    Now we have our high paying KW and some low cost KW. Next step.


    :yield: Find a re-sale rights ebook related to the general theme, in this case "make money online", one which has a landing page with good copywrite you can use. (You guys must be able to find some for 'free' somewhere ;)


    :yield: Optimize the landing page for the low costing KW. Don't say 'free ebook' say 'free report'. You'll know what in a mo...

    :yield: Convert the ebook from .pdf to .doc with something like hellopdf dot com

    :yield: Optimize the text from the ebook with your high paying keywords.

    :yield: You are not goin to be giving away an 'ebook', instead your visitor is going to have to remain on your site to read the report. So create around 10 pages with the contents of the ebook spread out over them all.

    :yield: Upload your landing page and the 10 page report.

    :yield: Place ads in very high converting areas on every page of the report (as intergrated with the text as possible)

    :yield: Your report should be optimized to show only the high paying ads.

    :yield: Create an Adwords campaign to advertise your free report, use your low cost KW which your landing page is optimized for and advertise on both the search network and content network.

    :yield: Use the word FREE in capitals in your ad and you should get a very good CTR and a lot of traffic.




    Now, here's what should happen.....


    :yield: Your visitor see's 'FREE Report' and clicks on your ad - which costs you f**k all.

    :yield: They arrive on your landing page, which is really a sales page only it just has to convince them to part with their email address, not cash, to get immediate access to the 10 page report.

    :yield: They put in their email address and are taken straight to the report.

    :yield: There are ten pages for them to read through. And ten chances for you to get them to click on one of those high paying ads.

    :yield: Your visitor will be compelled to read each page of the report because they have just been sold on the landing page. They paid for it with their email address, everywhere else they would have to pay cash for it.

    :yield: They might bookmark your page if they can't read it all at once, giving you even MORE of an opportunity to get some high paying ad clicks.

    :yield: Plus as a BIG bonus to you you're building a highly targeted list for free!

    :yield: Throughout the report you could even include some CPA offers and make a little extra money.

    :yield: Place a banner ad at the side of your report. In the middle of the report you could say something like 'I highly reccomend you visit our partner to the right (banner ad) to learn more about working from home"


    :yield: Include on every page something like "As we have given you this valuable report for free we would appreciate it if you would visit one of our sponsors, please help us to keep this site free for others to use"





    So to sum up........

    :yield: You're paying for very cheap traffic
    :yield:You're collecting email addresses and building a list
    :yield: You have 10 chances to get your visitor to click on a high paying ad
    :yield:You could make some dolla from CPA offers
    :yield: Once you have your campaign set up - leave it running on autopilot



    I'm going to go and try this right now.

    Let me know what you all think please

    Thanks for this, it is a good idea. The only stumbling block is that I would not go the route of trying to coerce my visitors into clicking on the ads as it is a sure fire way to get your adsense account canned. Google is quite strict about this.

    if you're using adsense and asking people to "visit your sponsors" then google will ban your ass.

    Also, it will cost you each click, even if its just $0.01c. There are far cheaper ways of getting traffic than this.

    Overall, it's a good method, but too much work for my liking!

    I think if you are talking traffic having a cpc will bring an exponentially more targeted visitor to the site thus increasing your CTR at the $$$ end.

    Plus, if you have already managed to find someone to click the ad you know your not getting an "ad blind" surfer.

    If the $$$$ stack up then it is just a question of doing some serious numbers.

    Sadly, I am $1 down on todays effort (cost $18 income $17) has anyone else had any luck yet?

    With proper arrangements and new adsense account that is not smart priced, you can easily earn $30 ecpm.

    So why cheat?

    The problem is, even if you don't you get banned anyway once in a while. What I mean by not cheating is using forum traffics and using search engine traffics earned through blackhat. I mean, that's real visitors adsense. C'mon. Why can't adsense just put our traffic score like parked.com so publishers can check whether their account is good or not. We'll just pick a niches where our TQ is high.
