Profitability of PMC sites
« on: March 17, 2010, 07:26:46 AM »
I know I already have a lot of irons in the fire right now but it bugs
the stuffings out of me to let these just gather digital dust. I could
realistically set up one site per day without batting an eye if
it would be worth the effort. Hmm, 31 sites and 31 days in a month.
No accident there!  ;)

My question is: are most of you having reasonable success
with these? By reasonable I mean bringing in at least .50 to $2
per day each. That can add up to a pretty nice passive income
by the time a person gets a few hundred sites up and going.
And, with the generous 31 sites per month that Mark gives us
that would be pretty easy to attain within a few months.

Of course you get out of it what you put into it so I'm not
talking about just slapping them up and crossing fingers.

Maybe some cooperatives if any one is interested???
I'm open to suggestions.

So far, I haven't had any traffic to speak of, go to sites without additional marketing.

And, I'm not sure if you have to keep marketing these sites or what. But, so far, I have not had one cent come back from putting up these sites and not do anything else.

I believe that just creating a site and letting it gather traffic isn't gonna do it.

Anyone else been more successful?
thanks
Here are some sites:
 reversemortgagehowto dot info with an alexa rating of 11 million.
 theipadvideos dot info with an alexa rating of 8 million
 stockmarketstore dot info with an alexa rating of 9 million
 investsolarpower dot com with an alexa rating of 2 million (has a blog)

ps: I'm working on creating simple sites such as these and getting them to a low alexa rating and then flipping them. I don't know what I would need to do to get money generating out of these sites so am more than willing to hear any one's thoughts on this.

Hi Joe

A way of increasing their Alexa rankings quickly and freely is to whip them through socialmarker.com or onlywire.com and give them some backlinks.

And you are right - if you don't tell people that they are there no traffic is going to come to your site so you do need to keep marketing them, keep getting them out there, keep telling people about them through whatever methods you choose.

In what ways do the sites generate income? basically through Adsense and possible Clickbank and/or Amazon affiliate commissions.

Adsense from one website is never going to generate a second or even primary income for you; however one forum member has replaced one of the the adsense blocks with CPA offers - CPAs can be a good income generator especially in the mortgage and the stock market niches.

Amazon pays its affiliates around 5% commission so you'll need to get hold of some high value items to show in your Amazon section to be able to generate a decent income.

Clickbank can be a very good income generator but don't surprise your readers with a sudden lurch to a totally different site - I would title the Clickbank section 'Useful Products Section' or 'Trusted Merchants' - make it easy on your readers.

Finally, remember that these sites and their articles are PLR sites/articles - there are already many like yours out there - so change the graphics/article titles/articles themselves. Give the sites your personal touches and make them different to the others that are out there and keep on pushing them.

I hope this helps in some small way.

Cheers

P.S. Do you track what visitors you do get? If so, what do they do when they hit your site? How do they leave it? Get hold of some tracking software if you don't and see what happens!

Hi Joe

I would also write some articles and publish them on article sites and then backlink to your site.
Same you could do on hubpages and squidoo to get more backlinks.

This should give you more traffic and also help for the ranking on search engines (if you have not a too broad keyword).

@Val
what exactly would you track and how do you evaluate this?

best regards
Fabian

Hi Fabian

What would I track?

Crikey - where to start.

You could track:

Amazon clicks
Adsense clicks
Clickbank clicks
Exit points

All of this can be found or set up on Google Analytics

I'm sure GA is more powerful than the hoops I'm putting it through - I've no idea whether there is any training material available for GA users but it could be worth hunting some down.

Hi Dominic

Thanks a lot for sharing this.
I have google analytics installed on some sites but don't know it too much to evaluate what to imporve on the page....
Maybe I should spend some time on this topic (as many others :-))

Really appreciate this forum and the quick answers.

I think it would be better to mak a network out of these sites a few niche sites tied together google loves that
then advertise the network

Yes nice to hear about that cooperatives.... Must be made on cleaver way. Think all people here start from 0 and trying to use free tools to promote. So weneed cooperatives. I mean all together, sure active people which share, twitte and give other members social value. Submition sources e.t.c. Think we really can help each otherif we made on the right way.
So we need comunity  lets tell facebook fanpage. I have one ... where every one cen post all what he wants. And i have ready like 50 more facebook groups to post links and offers  If some body here is interested to cooperate.
Share experience and helpeach other i'm ready to partecipate and give  My Best to help.
P.S. If you are really interested pm me here on skype or facebook....
Good luck all

Hi All,
 
    The idea of us all getting together would be a great idea as everyone putting sites would give us great back links and a lot more. We could set up pages with all the links set on them. There a lot of things we could do. Like make a review site that would help. If any one is intrested in this let me know.

Having recently joined and having a look through some of the PMC sites, honestly they look really cheap and basic..and would take a hell of a lot of work with articles etc just to get them ranking.
I've seen better, maybe I have it all wrong?

What do other members that have used these PMC niche sites think..

I agree with you Mikaedi - as they are they're nothing special, but, remember, they are completely editable - you can shift the widgets around, change the header, change the content - in fact, you'd need to do that with them because there will be many marketers who will have just thrown them up there without changing a thing and  that way lies disaster!

As to getting them to rank with articles - yes, completely agree, but, if you could get them in front of the buyers in that niche via social media - then, possibly, they could work - it's all about getting the right eyeballs at the right time in the buying cycle.

Did I use them? - Yes, at the beginning
Did I have success? - No, but that was because I didn't know how to promote them
Do I use them now? No, because I have branched out elsewhere now.

Hope that helps
