You have to realize that Goggle’s bread and butter is search marketing and they must protect their business from Internet Marketers who do nothing but advertise copycat websites or thin bridge pages that link to one or more merchants.
Once you start thinking along these lines, determining what kind of site will get approved in AdWords is easy.
First I’ll answer the people who will be commenting that I’m wrong. If you’re selling the systems or the copycat stuff, don’t embarrass yourself by commenting. I’ll allow the comment but I won’t believe you or your screen shots. I’ll only believe server stats or logs matched up with actual sales reports from whom ever. If you aren’t willing to show that, keep your sales pitch to yourself!
If you actually do it and have been making money, and I’m not talking about 30 bucks a month, I want to here from you. I can get a site indexed as well as anyone. I have these these installed on Word Press Blogs using EXPERIENCED (expired domains that have back links and good history that I purchased just for this) domains.
They are not worth the trouble. In fact now I don’t even believe anyone who says they have 150 of these sites. I have 20 and it takes forever to keep them running. Every day I have to check them. Either a new upgrade has to be uploaded or hackers are hanging around etc…..I can’t see how anyone can take care of a couple hundred sites.
And they all can’t be running. Stuff happens, they have to be kept up. I just don’t believe it and won’t believe it unless I have bonafide proof. Then I’ll change my thinking on that.
Yes, I do have a problem with all the copycat and spinned content sites or material. Do an organic search on any of the search engines for any word or phrase. How long does it take to find something good? A long time and one day that will end.
If you want to build a sustainable business that will earn money not only this month but next year and the year after, you HAVE TO HAVE GOOD STUFF, and if you don’t, you need a job, because you’re not going to make any money or enough money to live.
Or you have to start selling the kind of stuff you’ve been buying to other new people in the business.
I don’t want to make it hard for you, I just want you to be good because then I’ll know you’ll be able to make money.
Jeez did I get off topic here or what. Okay, off my soap box and back to the type of content AdWords will approve.
DISCLAIMER: EVERYTHING I WRITE IS MY OPINION AND IS ACTUALLY WHAT I DO. MY ACCOUNT IS STILL OPEN, I HAVE DOZENS OF CAMPAIGNS RUNNING SO I’M ASSUMING I’M DOING IT CORRECTLY. I TRY AND UNDERSTAND AND FOLLOW ADWORDS TOS AND IT’S NOT EASY.
But it’s still my opinion and I can’t guarantee you won’t be banned if you do it, but I think you’ll be fine.
I don’t use multiple reviews anymore. I stopped that last summer when things started changing with AdWords. I still see plenty of them advertising and I know some people still recommend and say it’s okay. I choose to error on the side of caution because my account is that important to me.
But I think you can use this information and try a multiple review site, and I might try one eventually myself.
For a review, you must purchase the product or get a free copy from the merchant or join the site. What ever it takes to be able to use and actually evaluate what ever it is.
I still see reviews of other people’s reviews or reviews (a lot of what you see could be my stuff) of the merchant’s sales pages. I just think those people are lucky and eventually they’ll get booted because those reviews mean nothing, do nothing, add zero value and just take up space.
You own the product, now use it then review it. Cover it step by step. Each section of the product or website should be reviewed. If it’s too much content, then you’ll have content left over to use for articles or another web site. It’s a win win situation for you and all it takes is an extra couple hours or so.
Why do it like this? It’s too hard. I can’t afford to buy the product. I can buy a review instead.
If you think it’s too hard, I understand but what do you want me to do. Pat your back and say it’s okay?
This is a business you’re trying to build and you have to work. I make dough and I still work 15 hours per day!
The concept that Internet Marketing is different then owning any other kind of business is a complete fallacy. Internet Marketing requires as much work and time as a brick and mortar type business. The great thing is you don’t need a lot of money. In fact you can do it for practically nothing.
If you can’t afford to buy the product (I’m talking about some type of down loadable product or E-Book) contact the merchant through his contact listing on his sales or affiliate page and tell him you want to review his product so you can write a great affiliate landing page and send him a lot of easy to convert warm traffic. 9 out of 10 ten times they’ll send you one.
And if they won’t, you can buy it, use it, review it then return it and get your money back. Just don’t do this a lot or you’ll get in trouble with the network and/or the merchant.
Or you can do a little back door search and see if the merchant has an old version laying around you can download. Type into the Google Search bar: site:www.xxxx.com. Replace the www.xxx.com with the site url. You can also use this to find the pages Google has indexed from your own web site. I did this on one of Pot Pie Girl’s sites and she had a message that said thanks for stopping by but you have to come in the front door. Sorry Jennifer!
Another reason I do the site: thing is to find old pages of merchants or internet marketers. Before successful Internet Marketers were successful, they were kinda stupid, just like I was, or if you ask some people, they say I’m still stupid.
I have everything that makes money hidden now. Different company name and I use a different name. On my sites that convert, I don’t have use my good keywords for meta tags. Why? Because you can right click on any text and look at the page info and the source code. Everything that has my Wealthy Affiliates name or Warrior Forum name is just out there to throw the vultures off track.
Don’t let anyone kid you. Without converting keywords, you won’t make any money and I guard mine with my life. You can have a million pages indexed and if the keywords they’re indexed for don’t convert, you’re going to have a million visitors that spend nothing.
I always search the merchant, the merchant’s competition and many of my competition’s pages this way. Right click on the content and check the page information to see if keywords are listed. Then right click and take a look at the source code. You’re looking for the line that says meta keyword. There is gold out there, you just have to find it. Make this part of your research.
The site you want to use in AdWords needs to offer something other then the same stuff found on the merchant’s site. If you have information on your site that the Google searcher will find on the merchant’s site after they click through, you’re not offering any value added content to the searcher and you won’t pass mustard on AdWords.
Adwords wants their searcher to find exactly what they’re looking for, then be able to buy it with out going somewhere else. In order to pass this test, you must have something that will add to the visitors search. Even better, out perform the merchant.
The only outgoing links should be to the Merchant’s sales page. If you have links to other stuff like other products or things like CPA offers etc…., this will be held against you and I don’t recommend it.
And have a lot of links between the pages on your site. I don’t know why, but it really helps getting those pages indexed on the search engines.
Of course you know about the disclaimer page, anti-spam and contact us pages.
I like to have at least 20 pages of original content plus the disclaimer etc… page.
I don’t use AdSense on my AdWords sites either. It’s against the TOS of AdSense and you’ll banned for it.
I’ll be glad to answer any questions, please leave your comments.
And I’ll always to glad to take a peek into your AdWords or Yahoo search accounts and help you out there too.
All you have to do is ask.
Talk to you soon,
P.S. Be careful using older AdWords training manuals. If they were written before July of 2009, it’s out of date as far as site content goes. Use the information about signing up with AdWords etc…. and use my info for setting up your website.
