Someone just made $59,741 from AdSense.

FatCat Blueprint

Apparently this looks like a low-key product launch, which tells me the product creator is not your typical IM shark which suggests that his main source of revenue is not teaching “how to make money products”.

The FatCat Blueprint is a 244-page guide to building a highly profitable AdSense business in as little time as possible. The rest of the package includes the FatCat SEO guide, FatCat Templates, The Secret Bonus Chapter, and the FatCat Domain Hunter software.

You only need to understand 3 key points about Bertil Jenner’s blueprint:

1) How to set up an overall system that makes you a passive income
2) How a simple website of not more than 10 static pages can be a complete income machine
3) How to get your traffic totally free

And may I add a 4th point: AdSense as a main income source is never the solution of a fast-track system. Your site might not get high ranking in search engine in the very short period of time unless you are targeting micro niches which have very few competitors. On top of that, your site might get sandboxed in case you do something wrong.

If you purchase FatCat Blueprint here, you will also receive another AdSense strategic manual called “How To Build An AdSense Empire” as a bonus. Not to be confused with the “Building Your Own AdSense Empire” PLR e-book, “How To Build…” was published in 2005 and is now no longer sold. Some of the resource recommendations are invalid but the ideas and strategies behind keyword research and linking are still worth revisiting. For your personal use only.

The content of this manual is hardly seen these days, so if you want this bonus, purchase FatCat Blueprint and e-mail me your proof of receipt to support@internetmasterycenter.com. I’ll reply with the download link.

Write articles a little faster with less headache.

Article Writing Assistant

Here’s a nifty online tool that could save you hours of time every day.

It’s something called “Article Writing Assistant” and it’s free. Doesn’t cost anything. What does it do?

It automates big parts of writing articles, and gives you a sort of “template” to go by, via a Q&A format to prompt you along. This way, you can spend more time thinking “What” you’re going to write, rather than “How” you’re going to say it!

Pretty cool.

The Hidden Truth In AdSense Commissions…

Sample this:

Home Mortgage
Max CPC : $28.09

Truck Accident Lawyer
Max CPC : $40.79

Insurance Settlement Loan
Max CPC : $47.07

Now which one of them is the highest paying keyword? The answer is “Insurance Settlement loan”, right?

Wrong!

Now see the complete picture :

Home Mortgage
Max CPC : $28.09
Clicks/month : 27,603
Advertisers : 242 Averagely paying $8.64 per click

insurance settlement loan
Max CPC : $47.07
Clicks/month : 6
Advertisers : 66 Averagely paying $3.58 per click

truck accident lawyer
Max CPC : $40.79
Clicks/month : 12
Advertisers : 43 Averagely paying 2.64 per click

Home Mortgage has 242 advertisers fighting against each other to pay you per click higher than the others. So that’s the most paying keyword here.

98% people rely on CPC as the only criteria for judging a high-paying keyword or industry. And in the end they are disappointed. Obviously, who is going to pay you like $15 per click if there are no advertisers bidding on a keyword?

Shocked to see what real picture of keywords can look like? Yes! There are many, many keywords on Google AdWords system that have high CPC but are not profitable to target. And many keyword tools online are just befooling you.

The good news is, now the complete picture of high-paying keywords is just a click away. Keyword Country offers a ‘Keyword Search Engine’ that can let you do much more in-depth research on high-paying AdSense keywords.

It not only shows you high paying keywords, but also pinpoints you:

– Niche keywords
– Traffic building keywords
– High CTR keywords
– Heavily Advertised keywords

…and keywords on which you can build more content.

Poor Adsense Conversions? Clickbank Ad Rotator Will Boost Your Commissions.

ClickBank Ad Rotator

We all know AdSense doesn’t pay as well as it used to. My earnings have dropped over 75% over the last 2 years and if you have AdSense ads on any of your websites I’m sure you have seen similar results.

Well that is about to change.

Over the last 6 months John Thornhill has been working alongside Dave Nicholson and Daniel Sumner on an ad system that can out-perform Google AdSense, they have spent over $10,000 developing and perfecting this system and the result is something that can outperform Google AdSense every time.

This is also something that has never been seen before, while there are similar ad systems on the marketplace there are none that can deliver as much as ClickBank Ad Rotator. This system uses the whole ClickBank Marketplace and is also so simple to use. If you can copy/paste you can use this system, it really is that easy.

The concept is really quite simple. All the ads you create are embedded with your ClickBank affiliate id. If someone clicks on an ad then buys the product advertised you get paid a commission. Unlike Google AdSense the ads are keyword driven so there is no danger of your site displaying irrelevant ads. This happens a lot with AdSense.

So for example if you had a weight loss website and used the keyword’ ‘weight’ and ‘loss’ you would only display products containing both those keywords.

The ads can be fully customized to reflect the look of your website, you can change the font, font colors, font size, border colors and styles, you can also choose the exact size of ads you require by title length, description length, word length, ad number, width, height, orientation etc.

But the real beauty of these ads is you get paid per sale and not per click. Why get paid a pathetic 10 cents for an ad click when you could be earning over $50 per sale as an affiliate.

Allow me to give you an example.

Let’s say you use ClickBank Ad Rotator and you promote a $97 product offering 60% commissions that converts at only 3% (3% is a low conversion rate). Let’s say over time you get 100 clicks. At a 3% conversion this would mean on average you get 3 sales as an affiliate that would earn you over $150.

Now login to your AdSense account and see what you earned for your last 100 clicks. Probably around $10–$20.

This is so simple but so effective and I’m sure you want to get your hands on this incredible software. Well all you need to do is visit this link for more information.

Interesting way to get your unused domains start earning AdSense income.

If you currently have unused or dormant domains, you can do something quickly and increase their value using a unique domain parking service. You can also move domains from other domain parking services to this one. Read this article.

Amazon releases all-new Amazon Widgets.

The Amazon Associates program has launched Amazon Widgets. Amazon Widgets are small, visually dynamic, easily configurable tools that allow you to feature products from Amazon on your website, blog or social networking pages. In as little as one minute you can populate a widget with your favorite Amazon products, your comments about those products, and select from a set of color and layout themes to match both your mood and website.

Widgets are an extension to the classic Associate Links offerings and likewise, you can earn referral fees of up to 10% on these new widgets.

These are the types of widgets available:

Slideshow: Pick your favorite images from the Amazon catalog and present them as a stylish slideshow. Showcase your favorite CD cover art, present recently read books, or even reveal your favorite breakfast cereals. Slideshow also lets you overlay your comments on the selected images.

My Favorites: Express yourself by recommending and commenting on your favorite products from Amazon. This widget lets everyone know how you feel and what you like by showing product images, information and your own comments.

Quick Linker: Quickly build links to products on Amazon without having to visit Associates Central. By inserting a set of custom HTML tags as you write your content, you can quickly link to products on Amazon. For example, typing “Harry Potter” would link to a Search Results page on Amazon for the term “Harry Potter”. This is a great new tool that will be handy for all Associates and bloggers that write their own content.

Wish List: Display your Amazon Wish List on your site and let friends, family, and others know what you want.

Product Cloud: Take tag clouds or word clusters one step further by showing Product Clouds. Product Clouds engage site visitors by displaying product titles that are relevant to the content of the page in a cloud or cluster with the most popular product bolded. Site visitors can click on the title to directly visit the product page on Amazon.

Amazon Unbox Video Previewer: Show movie studio and TV network previews for a wide range of new release and classic movies or television shows available from the Amazon Unbox video download service. Users can select by attributes, such as genre, for previews they want to show on their websites.

You can see all of the above widgets in action on the Associates blog. Stay tuned for additional widgets in the future.

Blogger.com introduces inline AdSense ads.

Just wanted to bring your attention to a small yet nifty (and long-requested!) feature Google recently added to Blogger’s AdSense integration: inline ads.

You can now show AdSense ads inside your block of blog posts, up to 3 times on your main blog page. This should definitely improve monetization for those of you using AdSense on your blogs, as this places the ads inline with your blogs’ actual content. The AdSense blog shows how it works.

This is my self-development blog if you haven’t been visiting. Watch for the banner-size inline ads between posts.

Real Traffic Exchange: Earn 10% more credits from all your referrals!

Just a quick note to let you know that now, in addition to earning 50% of any credits purchased by Real Traffic Exchange members that you refer, you will also earn 10% of all of the credits they earn in the system.

The 10% will be taken from the 25% of credits available for sale, so the members of the sites will still be earning the same amount of credits.

So start referring people to Real Traffic Exchange and earn not only cash, but free visitors to your sites!

As an example of the potential here: let’s say you refer 100 new members, and each earns an average of 250 credits per month. That’s a total of 25,000 credits per month. Of that, you will earn 2,500 credits to your RTE account. That’s 2,500 free visitors EVERY MONTH being sent to your websites.

In case you are wondering what is RTE, see the ads above? It’s a new contextual ad program launched by Jonathan Leger, the one-man army against the Google Goliath. Read all about it here.

Another AdSense Rival!

See the ad above? It’s not AdSense, nor ClickBank or PayDotCom text ads, but it works very much like AdSense. Jonathan Leger opens his Real Traffic Exchange program with a bang few days ago and it already has 17 categories available:

Arts
Business/Financial/Employment
Computers/Internet/Electronics
Health/Medicine/Beauty
Home/Family/Food/Garden
Recreation/Sports
Kids/Games
Shopping
Travel/Real Estate
Marketing/Online Business
Portals/Articles/Miscellaneous
Automotive
Animals/Pets
Society
Self Help/Inspirational
Music/Dance
Education/Language

You don’t have to pay for every click, though you can purchase credits in bulk: 100 click credits for $25. Credits enable your ads to be shown. As an affiliate, you will earn 50% from everyone you refer that joins and purchases paid credits via their accounts. You also earn free credits when visitors click RTE ads on your site.

Duplicate clicks are filtered, so you can be sure that you’re getting unique visitors from the network. Not a chance for getting banned for fraud clicks (you won’t be paid in $$$ anyway). You can also customize the color and look of your ads.

The program is uncomplicated and simple. It’s quite surprising that from the look of it, Jonathan started small while taking on Google, but this can only be an inspiration for all of us. Meanwhile, as you help support Jonathan’s program, I look forward you start one yourself too!

Another AdSense success story, but is it for YOU?

The AdSense Advantage

Phew! Matt Callen must have felt vindicated when one of his customer, Arbhishek Agrawal, e-mailed him from nowhere to say he made $9127.75 in AdSense income for this January! So he quickly wrote this e-book, The AdSense Advantage, and just distributed it on Thursday to spread the testimonial on the use of HyperVRE Gold (commercial version).

Of course, we are eager to learn and celebrate of yet another new formula and at the same, want to be careful with all the excitement surrounding the report and give some objective thought as to how popular the method can be accepted by the masses.

On first impression, the method is akin to what John Reese once described as a ‘braindump’ method; that is, “you fling a bucket of mud towards a wall and hope that a few good patches stick to it.” We are referring to pg. 16 of the report where Arbhishek uploaded 300 sites, removed 100 non-performing ones and ended up with 200 good ones.

Another highlight of the report is Arbhishek need not register every single domain for each site. If he did, that would be quite expensive, but it only means 2 things:

1) He had no intention to build opt-in leads.
2) Without opt-ins, there was no intention to build online businesses.

As a result, he only used 2, 3 domains (read the e-book to find out how and why). Google has already successfully clamp down on AdSense sites, thus there is no way the spiders are going deep to index those pages. He couldn’t possibly link to them from the index page either…which brings us to how Arbhishek drew tons of visitors to his sites.

Answer: AdSense arbitrage, but it’s not what you think.

He used PPC, but not AdWords. Guess what? Yahoo! Search Marketing.

Fantastic loophole while it lasts! Why? Google had been trying to maintain the standards of its AdWords/AdSense programs with the implementation of smart pricing, Google slap and landing page score. Whatever activities you do with these programs are closely monitored…

…Whereas Yahoo! Publisher Network, its version of AdSense, is still in its infancy. You can draw PPC traffic from Yahoo! to click ads on your AdSense sites simply because Yahoo! has no sense of landing page score, as yet.

This is a pretty interesting situation. The quality of those clicks may not be good as they seem, but as long as Arbhishek’s AdSense account is not banned, he’s not complaining. He paid for his PPC traffic, and Yahoo! raises both its hands and say, “It’s not my fault.”

It will be a matter of time before Google has no choice but to knock on Yahoo’s door and go in as a courteous guest…and as you know, these 2 companies are rivals.

Before that happens, here is what’s in it for you. We have to reiterate, Arbhishek is NOT building a business, by which we mean there’s no sense of giving value to whoever patronizes you. The AdSense Advantage contains a formula for your benefit and it’s yours only. The process requires you to take MASSIVE action while the good times roll. We have read about other AdSense methods that are, by comparison, beautiful and elaborate. This one is quick and dirty as hell.

If you have previously bought a ton of AdSense templates (we know some of you have bought from us) and feel that you are not optimizing your efforts on them, it’s your no. 1 priority to read The AdSense Advantage and not waste another second. If you have been pursuing AdSense, consider this a must-read to be informed. There is a glaring loophole you can’t miss, and we have just explained it!

AdSense Arbitrage

Here’s another AdSense arbitrage case study by Matt’s brother, Brad Callen. He compiled his report based on tips given by one of his Keyword Elite customers and threads from his KE forum. Interestingly, AdWords is involved, contrary to what we wrote above. The details of this free report is just as good, or better than any paid arbitrage product you’ll find.

Google bans ads next to images! WHAAAAT??!!

This is a bit of an old news from last month. In case you haven’t heard of it, Google Inc. has changed its mind on the practice of placing images next to ads. The AdSense team had actually started knocking on webmasters’ doors and courteously asking them to take down images. So far I haven’t heard of anyone getting penalized heavily for the crime, however, that day shall come…You know what to do now.

AdSense: Here’s 3 Articles To Get You Started

We have a good list of high-paying keywords and 4 secrets for your consideration to building potentially lucrative sites that will bring in the traffic and clicks.

Also, the latest news from Google is you can now better target your adsense ads, and de-emphasize the parts of the web page that are not relevant to the topic! The method is found right here.

This is really a debate going on…Google AdSense for Feeds

Now you can post AdSense ads on your blog feeds. To get the code, login your AdSense account, click on “AdSense for Content” and you will see an option for AdSense for feeds.

The link to applying for this feeds version of AdSense is here.

However, Mike Hogan disputes that more people may be seeing ads in the feeds but the clickthroughs won’t increase significantly. Why? Ads in feeds are never commonplace to begin with. Second, most marketers and webmasters are already trained to shut their minds of ads. This is his post.

Time-Saving Way To Update AdSense Ads

Imagine this: You run a website with hundred of pages, and on each page you have AdSense code. What if you want to change the color of your AdSense ads, do you edit all of those pages manually? What if you have not only hundreds, but thousands of pages?

If you’re still updating them manually, you should stop now. It’s a waste of time! Here’s what I do. I automate the insertion of AdSense code into my web pages using SSI (server side included). In order to use SSI, you’ll need to ask your web hosting company whether their server supports SSI or not. Nowadays, most web hosting companies allow you to use SSI. If their server doesn’t support SSI, it’s time for a change. If you want to switch to another web hosting company like 3rdSphere which we are using now.

Here’s how to do it. You just put the AdSense code in a text file, save it as ‘adsense.txt’, and upload it to the root directory of your web server. Next, call the file on all your pages using a simple SSI call like this:

#include virtual=”/adsense.txt”

Whenever you want to change to color of your ads, or the layout, simply edit the text file, upload it to your website, and voila, the change can be seen on all pages. This trick is really a time saver especially for those who use automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.

The AdSense Sandbox

With all the buzz about Google AdSense it may be wise to at least chëck it out to see what profïts you could be missing out on. Let’s face it…if there’s a way to monetize your site to maximize your profïts, then don’t you owe it to yourself to at least give it the once over?

A great way to do this is to use a frëe tool called the AdSense Sandbox. This tool checks your website and tells you what ads would most likely be placed on your page should you decide to use Google AdSense.

You can also estimate your earnïngs based on your existing traffïc and the cost-per-clïck that advërtisers are willing to bid for these keywords. Of course you won’t know what percentage of the pie you’ll get, but at least you’ll have an idea. The AdSense Sandbox is web-based and totally frëe to use, plus you don’t have to subscribe to any mailings.

Yahoo’s ‘AdSense’, anyone?

Yahoo! Launches their new contextual advertising program for blogs and other small publishers, a la Google AdSense. Look out for those ads marked with a ‘Y!’ in this example.

The program will be called the Yahoo! Publisher Network. Silicon Valley Watcher independently confirms that YPN is Yahoo!’s response to Google AdSense.

Also, in conjunction with YPN, Yahoo! may release a set of ‘publishing tools’ which should refer to its own freely hosted blog service to tie in with the contextual ads. Watch out, Blogger. Yahoo! may have the perfect arsenal.

How to boost your AdSense income by 700%.

From Mohd Fairuz from Adsense-Insider-Secrets.com.

Today, I’m going to let you know what is the best AdSense format to choose. This is based on my own experience, as well as other webmasters’ experiences.

Log on to your AdSense account, and click on the Ad Settings tab. On the Ad Layout section, choose 336 x 280 Large Rectangle. You can also choose 300 x 250 Medium Rectangle format.

Next, on the color palette section, click Manage Color Palettes. This is to customize the appearance of your ads. For the border and background color, choose the same color as your website background. The idea is to ‘blend’ the AdSense ads to your website. In a simple English, this is to let your AdSense ads look like they are a part of your website. You can now copy the AdSense code and put it on your website.

Now, where should you put your AdSense code? Many AdSense experts agree that the best place to put AdSense ads is on the top part of your website. The reason behind this is obvious: To let your visitors notice the ads as soon as they get into your website.

Okay, that’s it for today. Try to do what you’ve learned today and see the difference in your AdSense income.
