The entire Internet is built around one thing. Content. Words (and to a smaller extent videos) are what give search engines like Google something to do. Content is such a fundamental part of the internet that those who understand it have made a LOT of money... I'm talking billions.
The business model of content is not a big secret. It has been taught in various forms around internet marketing circles for years. Demand media (worth somewhere between 1 and 2 billion dollars) even has it posted on their mission statement.
This business model, on a smaller scale, is what the Adsense 100k Blueprint (written by Michael Ullman and Adam Franklin) teaches in specific detail.
Here is the model in a nutshell...
1. Find keywords that have good commercial value, but relatively little competition.
2. Create content around those keywords.
3. Get that content ranking in the search results.
4. Monetize the traffic by running ads.
It is about the most simple model you will find. But don't be fooled, because it works. And as long as people go to the internet for information, it will continue to work.
So if you have been running in circles, digging yourself deeper and deeper into information overload. It might be time you got back to the basics.
Basics like this.
That site is one of the examples used in the Adsense100k course. It's reported to have made the owners over $50/day for well over a year before it was sold on.
So let's have a closer look at this Adsense 100k Blueprint.
When I first sat down to read through the Blueprint (which is 120 pages of PDF goodness) I expected to just do a quick skim and maybe find a few 'nuggets' of information I didn't already know.
Yet I ended up reading the whole thing, almost cover to cover.
Not because it was groundbreaking stuff. I mean, if you've been through AffiloBlueprint or spent a great deal of time with the free lessons here at Affilorama you will be familiar with most of the concepts in the Adsense Blueprint.
What is refreshing (and what makes it so readable) is the way the authors have put everything together. It's clear from reading that they really do spend most of their time building the type of site they teach you about.
The content starts off with a quick intro and outline of their philosophy etc. etc.
Then it dives right into giving good basic instruction on how to do every step of their process. But as far as theory and the 'big picture' goes, it doesn't get much more complicated than the 5-step formula I mentioned above.
On page 94 though, is something really cool. A week by week plan that you can follow to the letter.
Here's a quote:
"This "Action Plan" is drawn from our own in-house efforts. As we tested and tracked different backlinking strategies through trial-and-error, we "reality-tested" what we were seeing against what other expert SEO's were doing and seeing. This included Webmasterworld, SEOBook, SearchEngineLand, and SEOChat.
What resulted was a simple-to-follow, relatively 'easy' set of steps for which we could achieve high Page 1 rankings on most of our chosen keyword phrases. If you choose your keywords reasonably well and follow the plan, you can expect similar results."
"If you choose your keywords reasonably well" - I think that's the key right there. This plan is simple. If you follow it you will get high rankings. But how much money you make will depend a lot on the quality of the keywords you choose. They do offer good advice on selecting keywords, but this is one area where you can expect to go through some 'experiential learning'.
Bad Not As Good
I really tried hard to find fault with the Adsense Blueprint. But it's hard. The course is simple. But that is by design.
It doesn't promise to be and do everything. Just a robust, solid plan for building money-making sites.
It doesn't have tons of fancy videos. So if you're after flash you're gonna be disappointed.
And if you're going to be picky... yes... you probably could find all the information in this course for free somewhere. BUT...
#1 You would waste hours and hours of your time pulling all the info together.
#2 You would have to spend even more time (and money) testing out everything for yourself to separate the good ideas from the BS... and...
#3 This is the case with ANY information product. What you are really paying for is the time you save figuring it all out for yourself (Not to mention the headaches, eye-strain, and heartbreaking failures).
Where it does fall down a little, is that the traffic strategies only focus on a few methods. Expect the usual suspects such as Article writing, Guest Blogs, Web 2.0 stuff, Blogs/Forums and so on. But then again, those are all methods that have been proven to work.
If you're tired of chasing every new method or scheme for building websites or making money online, then get yourself a copy of the Adsense 100k Blueprint.
It's not as in-depth as more expensive courses like AffiloBlueprint. But it is a solid (and proven) strategy, and it's written by guys with tons of real-world experience.
It is also very affordable at just $47. This includes regular (free) updates when things change (such as with the Panda updates earlier in 2011).
Note: I think Adam and Michael read my mind about that traffic issue. Because now they have released another product called the Traffic 100k Blueprint. Which is a very detailed 128 pages of traffic-getting strategies and methods. So if you get sick of writing articles to promote your Adsense sites, or want to mix things up a bit, you can choose from one of the more than 23 different ideas in here to boost your traffic.
It has some really good suggestions on how to increase conversions on your sites too.
Traffic 100k Blueprint is also priced at $47.
