It’s been a while since I last posted here. We had a major family bereavment at the end of January 2012 when my younger sister passed away during childbirth. She was giving birth to her fifth child. She was only 32 years of age at the time and as you can imagine, it completely knocked me and the whole family for six. She was my AdSense partner who developed tons of content as well as developing WordPress themes until 2009/2010 so naturally, trying to update my portfolio of sites has been incredibly emotional as well as trying to find the motivation to do it.
A couple of days ago I was on the Warrior Forum after such a long time and there was a post about Build My Rank (BMR) apprarently being shut down and deindexed. At first I didn’t believe it but lo and behold when I visited the site, it seemed like they got it hard by the wave of Google algorithm updates.
Google seems to have in the last year or so completely changed the SEO landscape with localised search and also with that nightmare update…PANDA! I suppose they have to keep their shareholders happy and to be fair they are trying to provide quality.
SEO is an ever-changing game so as online marketeers we need to adapt and roll with the punches.
It is very admirable that the BMR team are being totally transparent about things and are offereing full refunds. When my subscription got taken, I was refunded within a matter of hours.
Cheerio BMR, it was good while it lasted…..! I’ve therefore decided to take a different approach, instead of just SEO, now is a time like any other to make use of Social Media…PROPERLY…lets see if you really can drive traffic. I am very au faix with Twitter, Facebook etc but have only really used it for fun and can see the value in it. LEts see if it can actually help search results and bring in the money.
Below are the links to the BMR articles:
I’ve been using BMR for a while now (about 2 months) and I must say that it has been quite impressive. Its not cheap but the fact that you can focus on only a few domains and really get some decent links into them is quite a good thing.
Quick update, I finished my article of 1,800 words…wow. Thankfully though its a topic I can write about quite fluently so its all good. The article was already about 400 words but I just added new sub headings and organised keywords into the right places and slotted some LSI terms.
If you’re in the AdSense publishing business and have been developing your sites from a cave, you’ll have heard of John XFactor. A few days ago I received an email from him letting me know that his ‘NEW’ course was available for download.
Becuase this is a completely new course, John has written this from scratch. The purpose of this eBook is to focus on building bigger more authority sites while managing as little domain names as possible.
John has had a bit of a tough time being called all sorts but I’ve always admired the way he has helped others. In fact he inspired me to develop my AdSense sites (and I’ve been on the AdSense scene for a looooong time pretty much on and off). It took 18 months of waiting but I was sure as hell going to buy it!
There are a few pricing systems for this, if you are not on his existing system then you have to pay the discounted price of $77 from $97. If you are a member of his previous course whose name is on the system then you get this for a bargain of $39.99.
All orders are approved manually so it could take a few hours before you get the URL. Fortunately enough, I got in there early and it only took 2 hours. I recevied it at 11pm.
So? What can I expect from the course?
The day that most of us AdSense publishers have been waiting for was finally here.
Google have announced how much their revenue sharing is for publishers.
AdSense for content publishers earn – 68%
AdSense for Search partners earn 51%.
Wow, to be honest I didn’t realise it would be that high. In fact I thought it wouldv’e been a lot lower, somewhere in the 30-40% range but thats fantastic for me and the thousands of publishers worldwide.
Onwards and upwards.

The Google AdSense programme has been a wonderful way for people to make money online. Even those that have been in the internet marketing game do not find making money online easy as this is just like any other job. The only difference is that you can choose when you want to work and how much work you want to do. With any job there is always a best and a worst way to do it, below is an overview.
One of the best ways to be really successful at AdSense is to be organised, you’ll be surprised how confusing it can get once you have several domains live and are unsure what you need to do next.
Carrying out the correct keyword research is absolutely pivotal in deciding which keywords will drive you traffic and rankings. Obviously the higher your rankings, the better chance you have of earning money. This business is not something you will see results from overnight so hard work, effort and patience are traits that are an absolute must. By carrying out thorough keyword research, you are effectively building a good solid foundation to your online business.
Because you will generating most of your traffic from organic search results, you must make it your job to understand search engine optimisation as much as you can. The more you know, the more you will understand how to drive the right type of traffic. If you understand SEO then you are well on your way to making it with AdSense. You will need at least an intermediate level as basic SEO will not ‘cut the mustard’.
As more and more people become aware of the opportunities on how to make money online, the first port of call tends to be Google’s AdSense programme. Scores of people on a daily basis get turned down. Below are a few tips to try and get your account approved.
Anyone who is involved with Google AdSense is always wants to try and increase their AdSense earnings by trying new innovative ways or those that have already been tried and tested. Something that I’ve actualy known about for a while actually came up on my radar again recently. The Competitive Filter.
