What exactly is Adsense arbitrage?
There's a fancy term for arbitrage which relates to the financial and horse race betting market but that won't serve you any purpose here. For our purposes you just need to know that I buy visitors through Google's Adwords and send them to my website so I can monetize them (make money from them) with Google's Adsense program. It's like playing the stock market where you buy low and sell high. Instead of waiting though you sell the visitor to someone else almost instantly and take a cut of the profit. Adsense is a contextual advertising program run by Google which allows me to place a javascript code on my site which displays a block of ads. I make money every time a visitor clicks on my ad. How much I get paid is really up to Google. They don't disclose their formula for payout because it really depends on a lot of different variables which we'll cover later. Most everything you read about how to make money with Google Adsense discusses methods for generating free search engine traffic to your websites. Why is this? Why the focus on getting free traffic when it relates to Adsense but not so when it relates to info product marketing? In other words, when you read about how to make money as an affiliate or by selling your own products, then why isn't the focus on getting free search engine traffic? It's because a few years ago, some people developed software programs called "webpage generators" which allows you to build hundreds and thousands of webpages with the click of a button. These webpages were used as bait to get free search engine traffic easily as they claimed. It WAS easy to get search engine traffic using these programs several years ago. That's partly the reason why so many people started making money with Adsense and why so many people got interested in the Adsense revenue model. Easy and free search engine traffic mixed in with an easy way to make money without customer support issues allowed many many people who had never made a dime online before to see their first success. When the search engines caught on these page generators, they adjusted their algorithms and these sites gradually disappeared from the rankings. It is no longer a cake walk to get free search engine traffic. You actually have to put a little more work and creativity into getting good rankings. Since many people were so used to getting free traffic, they pretty much would turn their noses at the idea of paying for traffic. That's a big mistake and here's why... You will be spending a lot more time now to get free traffic and the traffic is not instantaneous. It will likely take you weeks or months to get good rankings. Even if you get instant traffic using certain techniques, that traffic will only decrease over time as the search engines find webpages that have more relevance than yours. Not only that but think of all the time and money you will spend hiring ghostwriters, bloggers, submitting to directories, and mixing up your private label rights articles so they look unique. Then think of all the hundreds of webpages and domains, and

It makes my head spin. In addition, once you get traffic to your site, you may only be making a few cents per click on the particular niche where you thought you'd be making $1.00 per click on your Adsense ads. I'll go over why that is happening in a later lesson. With my Adsense arbitrage system I'll show you how to get traffic almost instantly with Google Adwords and other PPCSE (pay per click search engines). These are sites where you get to decide how much you're willing to pay for each visitor to your site. In the case of Google, I pay no more than 5 cents per visitor. I often pay only 3-4 cents per visitor though. When those 4 cent visitors visit my site, and click on my ads, I make a profit of as much as 500%. The goal of any business should be to have a high ROI (return on investment). If you operate a brick-and-mortar store, you'll likely pay to have your ads in the yellow pages, newspapers, billboards, flyers etc. You should track your spending and if you're making more than you're spending then you're in profit. It's exactly the same way with your Adsense business. You can sit around and rely on free traffic or you can pay for traffic and make a profit over and over again. The fact is, you can make money in multiple ways from the traffic you buy. I particularly like to make money from traffic through Adsense because it doesn't take much work to get someone to click on an ad. If I was to sell a product to those five cent visitors, it would require a lot more testing and tracking. The only numbers I care about is my ROI. The higher percentage of people that I get to do what I want them to do to generate money for me without me digging too deep into my pockets, the higher my ROI will be. I could spend $40 on Adwords to get me 1000 visitors. The easiest thing to get those visitors to do after visiting my site is to leave my site by clicking on my ads. It's harder to ask them to fill in a form to join my mailing list and even harder to get them to buy. The type of visitors that I get for 5 cents and below are not the most likely candidate to become customers or subscribers. I use them mainly so they can click on my ads because they are click happy visitors. You'll learn that not all types of visitors behave the same way. You can control the types of visitors you get by what you say in your ads by controlling the keywords you bid on. When you're dealing with Adwords, you will be spending money to make money. Since you can get traffic almost within minutes of setting up an Adwords account, you will be making a profit almost instantly. Using my system for setting up profitable Arbitrage campaigns, I've been able to generate an automated income of $20-$200/day the very first day I set up my campaign. How long would it take you to do that with a site generated for the free search engine traffic?

Is it still possible to make huge money with Adsense? Myths debunked.
Adsense has been one of the biggest talked about subjects in the online marketing circles for a couple years. Part of the interest stemmed from the popularity of the 'page generators' that were developed a few years back. You may have remembered the two notorious ones "Traffic Equalizer" & "Ranking Power". What these programs basically did was they made it easy for average users to generate hundreds of thousands of webpages in minutes. I will not go into detail about how they work but I'll just say that these programs worked like gangbusters. Word caught on and everyone who was interested making money online wanted a piece of this push-button income stream. I was one of the people who made upwards of $10,000 a month using these page generators. I used Niche Portal Builder. These page generators helped people get a lot of free traffic to their sites. The preferred method to monetize this traffic was Adsense. This is because these sites were pretty ugly looking simply because they were designed for the search engines and not for real visitors. The best way to make money from the traffic was with Adsense because it allows the site owner to make money from visitors leaving the site. No visitors would trust such ugly looking sites to buy anything. Secondly, it takes a lot of time to write a presell to entice visitors to buy anything from the site. You still place Adsense on your sites for the same reason that they were used back when page generators were effective. Adsense only makes you money when people leave your site. The only requirements that you need are to have content that can trigger the correct ads and traffic of course. Answer this question for me. What is the easiest thing you can get your visitors to do? The easiest thing is to get them to click on your ads. Most of your visitors will leave your site anyway and you really don't have to get them to do anything. They'll click on the ads themselves if you make it easy for them to notice your ads. There are easy ways to do this which you can learn for free online. I'll give you a few pointers. Make the ad background the same color as the background of your site and get rid of the ad border so that it blends into the site. Make the color of your ad title blue and the display url grey. Blue is the universal color for links and most people are used to seeing links in blue. You make the title of the ad blue and not the url because the title is bigger and is usually where the callto-action is for the users. You blend the ad so that it flows into your website because it makes it look less like an ad. Have you heard of banner blindness? It's when people are so used to seeing banners that they dismiss it automatically. It's built into their subconscious. Speaking of banner blindness, there are certain sections of online users who do not have banner blindness as much as others. For example, do you remember the last

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com time you clicked an Adsense ad? I know I don't. I'm so used to avoiding clicking ads on my own sites that I never click on ads on other people's sites. If I see an ad that's interesting, I type the url into my browser window. I know that CTR is dismal on ads that serve the business opportunity and webmaster market. It's based on my own experience. Other markets that have strong banner blindness are, business, technology, internet marketing. Basically, people who are online frequently. When you're selecting markets to create Adsense sites in keep this in mind. Go for markets where people often don't go online and are not always subject to online ads. There are specific types of keywords where people are very 'click happy.' This is what I'll be covering in my report. Using these types of keywords in conjunction with several other techniques not mentioned above, I'm able to get CTR as high as 50% on many of my sites. In my arbitrage formula I only need a minimum CTR of 20% to make a profit so anything higher is great. Now back to the reason why people may feel that Adsense is dead. Knowing some of these reasons will help you make you more money with Adsense. See below. There was a recent report that I read which was titled "Adsense is Dead" by a fellow named Scott Boulch. You may have read it too. As you can see from my earnings recently, I have proof that you can still make a lot of money with Adsense. Anyway, what the report basically said was that once Google enabled publishers to make separate bids on the search network versus the content network, people earned less per click on their Adsense pages. This is true to a degree. The content network is the network of website owners who place the Google Adsense ads on their sites. If advertisers are paying less for this Adsense traffic then of course you're going to get less of the cut from Google. This does not mean that ALL advertisers are paying less. There's a very high number of advertisers who continue not to track their spending so they haven't lowered their bid prices on the content network. Then there are other advertisers who just want branding and have a huge ad budget. Many big companies advertise on Google. I still have many sites which pay me more than $1 per click. As long as you're making a profit and it's worth the time and monetary investment you put in then you should not dismiss Adsense as a revenue source. In a follow-up report, Scott tells people how he's making $50,000 a month by selling his visitors to lead companies instead of to Google. These lead companies pay him $20 and up for someone to fill out a form instead of the nickels, dimes and quarters you get from Google. Sounds very good doesn't it. There are a few problems you need to know about. First, you're spending way more than a nickel to generate leads. Do you have the stomach to spend fifty cents to a dollar per lead to have a chance of making $20 a lead? How much will you spend to test and track your profit? Second, it takes targeted Google ads, very targeted keywords and a little preselling to get someone to fill out a form. The more things you ask a visitor to do, the lower your conversion rates. Third, Scott is was selling software which automates the tracking of your profitable keywords. Without tracking software you would either have to do it manually or take

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com a stab in the dark and spend money on keywords which you don't know will convert or not. When you work with Adsense arbitrage the way I do it, you will never spend more than a nickel per visitor. You get a whole lot more traffic to work with before depleting your ad budget. It also is a whole lot easier to convert your visitors to cash in the bank because getting them to click your ads is the easiest thing you could ask them to do. Like I said, you're not even asking them. While you're only getting nickels, dimes and quarters from Google, the little numbers do add up to big numbers. Always consider the return on investment and the startup costs when pursuing a new business. I can't argue with five cents. Weigh your time and cost investment when comparing revenue generation methods. Adwords is simply a method of generating traffic. You can monetize it with Adsense, other contextual ad networks, pay per lead offers, with affiliate products or with your own products. What I've listed is in order from lowest paying to highest paying. Adsense will pay you the least and your own products will pay you the most. Now look at the costs in time and money involved with each of those. Check out the table below: Monetization Adsense Other Contextual Networks Pay Per Lead Affiliate Products Your Own Products Cost 1 2 ? 4 4 Time 1 2 3 4 5

Number 1 is least costly and quickest to set up and number 5 is most costly & more time consuming. Adsense - costs .05 per click and Adsense pages are easy to set up. Other Contextual Networks - Similar to Adsense, ad serving is not as accurate as Adsense, payout may be lower, application process may be more involved and not as big a selection in advertisers as Adsense. Pay Per Lead - Less offers to choose from. There are way less companies you can promote via pay per lead than there are Adsense advertisers. Costs more to generate a lead because your competition is stiffer. Takes more time to set up a presell page for your lead offers. Affiliate Products - Again, limited number of products to promote. There are tons of affiliate products out there that you can promote but the majority do not have good a good sales process. This will result in a lower conversion and higher costs for you. If you want to set up your own presell page, you'll spend more time. Your Own Products - Takes the most time to create and you more than likely won't be able to find Adwords traffic for nickels.

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com Looking at the above chart I'd say that sending traffic to Adsense is the least costly and quickest way to generate quick profits. I could have never increased my income from $15/day to over $1,000 a day in 2 weeks using the other methods. Takeways from this lesson is to consider your time and costs involved when picking out new methods of income generation. Know exactly when you should use Adsense on your sites and what types of visitors to target if you want higher CTR.

Why aren't many people doing this?
Many people aren't talking about Adsense arbitrage because they never thought of the idea of making money specifically by spending money using PPCSE (pay per click search engines). People often buy advertising for their sites. They spend money to send traffic to their sites but their main goal isn't to specifically make money on Adsense for that traffic. Our goal is to specifically make money on Adsense from that traffic. So we need to use tracking tools to see how much we're making. Google has all the available tools you'll need to get started with tracking. In business you should always track your spending and profits. You should know exactly how much you make from your visitors. If you make money then you simply add more money to your spending and you'll make more money. Or you could make more money from the same amount of traffic you're getting by increasing your conversion rates. That is, you sell higher priced products to your visitors or get them to buy more products. Your 'product' in this case is Adsense. You're selling your visitors to other sites and Google is managing that transaction for you. How can you bid on traffic that only costs .05 cents and still get enough traffic to make this worthwhile? Here's how pay per click marketing works. The higher your bid is, the more traffic you'll get because your ad will be placed near the top on the first page of Google's search results page. So the question I've heard some people ask is, if they bid only .05 cents won't their ad be pushed to the bottom of the barrel and not get any visitors? No, because your bid will be placed on a keyword which doesn't have many competing ads. If there are less than 8 other advertisers bidding on the same keywords as you are, then you're guaranteed a position on the first page of Google. There are many keywords which get a lot of traffic but don't have many advertisers. That's because those keywords are not targeted enough for what people are trying to do. Most Adwords advertisers are not looking to send their traffic away once they get the traffic. They're trying to generate a lead or a customer. That's why they don't bid on terms in which users are simply browsing for information and don't know what they want. Those are the least targeted visitors.

You, as an arbitrager, don't really care what type of visitors come to your site because you're going to get rid of them anyway. Of course you don't want to bid on baby cribs if your Adsense page is about rock bands. That's common sense. But if your site is on rock bands you can bid on guitars, drums, concerts etc. Is it clear now? Here's an example of visitor and cash flow through the arbitrage system: Advertiser bids on term "Playstation" for $1.00 and lands #1 position on the right side of Google. You bid on term "cheap video game system" for .05 and get #1 position for that term. Visitor clicks on your Adwords ad and goes to your website. On your website, you have an article on the Playstation game console and there's the "Playstation" ad on your site. Assuming the advertiser is bidding the same amount for the content and the search network, you will get about 50 cents when your visitor clicks that ad. You profit .45 cents. Now if 100% of the people you pay to visit your site click on the Adsense ad, you'd be making a 900% ROI. Some days you might get 100% and other days you might get 10% CTR. As long as you're getting a 25% CTR and the ad is paying at least .20 per click, then you'll break even. In my Arbitrage multi-media course, I will cover: • • • • • • The exact formula I use for discovering niches which are worth focusing on. What types of niches have more high paying ads. How to increase CTR on your Adsense pages. How to use channels to track your Adsense income. What steps I take to make the most efficient use of my time so I can set up new campaigns very quickly.

The big lie about high paying keyword lists.
Ever since the start of the Adsense craze there have been sites trying to sell you lists of keywords which show you exactly which keywords to build your sites with in order to make the most money from Adsense. Usually at the top of those keywords lists are terms such as mesothelioma, improve credit score, mortgage refinance, etc. Here's why you shouldn't rely on those keyword lists to build your arbitrage campaigns around. First, these highly profiled keywords are the target of many MFA (made for Adsense) sites. In turn, the types of visitors coming from ads on these sites are not as targeted as visitors coming from Google's search results page. This means two things. The advertisers will either bid very low prices to have their ads show on the content network or they will remove their ads altogether. Secondly, Google will give you less of their profits from the click on these types of keywords. You have to know that even if these keyword lists give you hundreds of thousands of high paying phrases to go after, they haven't touched even 10% of the total number of keywords that people use on the search engines every day. You will have better luck using your own brain to research high paying niches which aren't under Google's radar. Here's a hint: If a product is expensive, advertisers are willing to pay more to advertise on keywords related to that product. Second hint: Big companies with big budgets can pay more per click to advertise their products. You only need a niche which pays you 20 cents per click on average on a page which gets an average of 25% CTR to break even on your campaigns. The high CTR is easier to obtain than finding a high paying niche. You can make assumptions to find high paying niches but the ultimate way to find out is to actually drive traffic to your Adsense pages. I've found out that many times a niche that I thought would pay high actually pays very little. The opposite scenario also happens often. Some niches which I thought would pay low actually pay high. In my full course I'll go over exactly where to pinpoint the high paying keywords. I'll show you video tutorials of specific sites where you can mind high paying keywords. From there you can use my methodology to find a never-ending supply of these keywords which will bring home the bacon. Remember, my research method will help you find more profitable keywords more often. It's not a guaranteed method of finding high paying keywords. With Google, you're never really sure of anything until you run a live campaign.

How to get started with a very small budget.
The thrill of running an online business as opposed to running an offline business is that you have so little overhead. In fact, you can pretty much start making money even without any money at all. With a traditional offline business, you have to go through the trouble of obtaining business loans and seeking investors. Many people make the mistake of thinking that because they can do things for free, they shouldn't pay for anything at all. There's always a tradeoff for doing things that don't cost money. First, you will spend more time doing something without tools for automation. Once you spend the time to do things manually, you'll likely run into a software tool which sells you on the idea of saving time. Just give them your money. Secondly, when you pay for advertising, you can actually generate traffic much quicker. Generating traffic quickly is important because it gives you the visitors you need to tell if it's worthwhile to continue within that niche. I know that spending money will not boost your confidence. I mean, you're trying to increase your cashflow, not empty your pockets. So I will show you how to spend very little money and snowball it into huge profits like I did. First, here's a little warning: You WILL have losing campaigns and you WILL lose a little money but I'll show you how to minimize your losses. There is no method online that I know where you're assured 100% success every time. If there was such a method, I don't think the owner would ever release it as a product. He'd be on a cruise boat somewhere in the Bahamas. Even with the Google Cash method that was popular a few years ago, people would find that their success rate was 10 to 20%. That means they'd set up 9 losing campaigns before they found one that made money. To minimize your risk of losses, you only bid .05 cent or less for keywords, you use my techniques of finding high paying niches, and you use my templates to obtain high CTR (click-through-rate) on your Adsense pages. You will lose money when certain things happen. When the high paying niche you research doesn't really pay high and when your CTR is very low. Usually the problem is with the niche that you picked. If that happens, then just pick another niche. Your biggest variable that will determine your success is probably the niche that you pick to build your Adsense pages around.

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com Think outside the box and don't rely too much on the available tools you find online to pick your niche. Use clues from the offline world such as television, your friends and family. I've noticed that whenever I set up campaigns, most of them break even or end up in profit. I've never set up a campaign where I pay for 100 visitors and don't make a penny off those visitors. Let's say you use my system for finding profitable keywords, use my high CTR template and drive 100 visitors to your site. The worse case scenario is that you lose $5.00 before you stop the campaign. If you're confident, you can stop it after 50 visitors and analyze why it's not profitable. You can tell if the payout from Google is low or you have a low CTR. Consider that a profitable campaign will make up for all your losses. I've had several different campaigns where I found that it was profitable and then I started up more campaigns around similar niches and keywords. They all became profitable. I review how to expand your profitable campaigns in my multimedia course. I find that I can still extract some very valuable data from my break even campaigns. By looking at the types of keywords which generate impressions and clicks, I can see what the visitors are interested in. For example, if one of my keyword phrases which gets a high CTR is "learn spanish tampa" I can add more keyphrases targeting other cities. I know where to focus my time and research. Don't dismiss the data that Google provides. I'll show you how to drive more traffic from the same keywords without increasing your bid price. There are five ways to do this. In the next lesson I'll go over how to write Adwords ads which get high CTR. This will drive down your bid prices and send you more visitors. Most people find this is the most difficult part of generating cheap traffic.

How to generate more traffic and lower your costs by writing good ads.
Google calculates your click through rate as a percentage for you. The higher that number is, the lower you pay per click. Even though you may set a max bid price of .05 you can pay less if you have a high CTR. It's Google's way of rewarding advertisers for writing relevant ads. Of course, relevance is a relative term. Different people see different things as being relevant. My ads are still seen as relevant by Google based on the fact that they receive a high CTR. I'll show you how you can generate a high CTR below. You have a very small space to write compelling ads to make your visitors click. If you were advertising a product to sell then you don't want unqualified visitors to click your ads and waste your money. That's why many books on Adwords tell you to put a price in your ad to prevent freebie seekers from clicking your ads and wasting your budget.

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com Well, with the arbitrage system, you want as many visitors as possible. If they even have a remote interest in the topic of your ad, they'll click on it. When they click on it, you have more potential visitors to leave your site through your Adsense ads. You don't need to be a world-class copywriter to write good ads. In fact, there are a few adcopy techniques which you can use over and over in all your ads to elicit response. You just need to know how to push the right buttons by your word choice and placement. I have a few techniques up my sleeves. I will not reveal my best method but here's one that you should definitely try. Appeal to the emotions. The simple truth is that as humans we are controlled by our emotions. We can suppress it but we are ultimately in the control of our emotions. You can control other people by appealing to their emotions. That's why you should provide benefits in your ad copy and not provide the features. Appeal to the 7 deadly sins of greed, lust, gluttony, laziness, wrath, envy and pride. Use your keywords in your ads. Google makes bold all keywords in your ads which relate to what the searcher input. Make your ads stand out from the rest of the ads near yours. * hint No matter what I teach in this lesson about writing good ad copy, you need to always split test two different ads. Testing is the only thing that will tell you which ad is better. Some of the smallest things such as capitalizing one letter can boost your CTR. Things you can test are: The title of the ad. This is the first line. (most important thing to test) Capitalize letters. Different placement of words. Punctuation marks. Call to actions. Remember to follow Google's guidelines when writing ads. Read an understand their guidelines to save yourself the trouble of writing new ads which have been disapproved. I really go into more specifics about the techniques taught here in my multimedia course. I've learned that there are specific templates that you can use for different niches. Just change the keywords.

12

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com Often times, I will pick niches based on the creative adcopy I can create for it. This makes the whole process of niche finding a whole lot easier. In other words, when I find a niche, I look at my templates and ask myself if I write a template and plug these keywords in, will it work for this niche. This is a great time saver because I don't have to develop new ads all the time.

Finding those nickel keywords.
You can bid a nickel per keyword on any keyword you want. The problem is getting nickel keywords which will generate the traffic that is necessary to be worth your effort. Because you want as many clicks as you can get and are not so worried about relevance, you're in a position to bid on keywords which others deem to be not worth their investment. Let me give you an example. Many times advertisers choose not to bid on any keywords with the word 'free' in it. They don't want freebie seekers. Therefore, you can get those keywords for nickels and drive them to Adsense pages which have higher paying keywords in the same or similar niche. The power of this strategy is immense and I can't believe I am letting this one out of the bag! Let's talk more about keywords. Most people are often too lazy to do any real keyword research. If you put a little effort in by going off the beaten path, your research will be highly rewarded. Google states that more than 50% of its queries are unique. This means that over half of the searches done online will generate .05 clicks for you. Now do you see how plentiful cheap keywords are, especially if you don't have to worry about generating visitors who buy but rather click your ads. Another method I use to generate lots of low priced but relevant keywords is the lateral keyword strategy. You can generate a pretty big portfolio of low priced keywords by using this strategy. In my course I outline five different sites which will give you lateral keywords to work with. Also in my Adsense arbitrage multimedia course I will reveal the one keyword research tool that saves me a whole bunch of time in finding large sums of low priced keywords. If you want to do it manually I can show you where to look also.

How to increase CTR on Adsense.
Having a high CTR will generate more revenue for the same amount of traffic you get. This is very important when you are paying for your traffic. A higher CTR can increase your ROI and make a campaign profitable. I've mentioned before that certain niches can have more 'click-happy' visitors than others. Finding those niches is one consideration you should make when choosing a niche. Usually though, the only way to tell is by driving traffic to your Adsense pages and watch your CTR. I always do the following things when designing my ads for higher CTR. 1.) Make background of the ad same as background of the site. 2.) Remove border from ads. 3.) Use large rectangle ad layout 4.) Make the title of the Ad blue 5.) Place ads 'above the fold'. One mistake I see many newbie arbitragers do is not place any outgoing links on the page with the Adsense ads. This is against Google's TOS. You have to have at least one outgoing link on the page with your ads. Always check Google's TOS and ultimately contact Google if you're in doubt about a technique of generating higher CTR. None of the techniques I use are against Google's TOS. In fact, they help improve the relevancy of your landing page, which is a very important factor according to Google. In my course, I'll show you a little trick to having links on your sites but make it look like there are no links. This is pretty clever and I don't see many people doing it. I've purposely left out my favorite trick for increasing CTR. Out of all the books I've read about this subject, I have not seen anybody teach it and I do read a lot of books and forums on the subject. It doesn't require any special software. This one technique was learned only from testing dozens of landing page styles. In fact, it works best with the arbitrage method. Inside my Adsense Arbitrage Revealed course I'll show you this one technique and give you an 80 minute interview with Patric Chan and Fabian Lim (Adwords Professional) where all we talk about is how to increase your Adsense CTR.

Moving Beyond Adsense and Adwords
If you know the principle of Adsense arbitrage then you should understand that you don't have to use Adsense to monetize your sites and Adwords to generate traffic. You can also sign up for Yahoo's contextual ad network which is similar to Adsense. Since they're in Beta at this time, they pay out higher amounts to publishers. That could change though as soon as they are no longer in Beta. You should start off with this combination but eventually you will want to expand into other ways to monetize and other ways to drive traffic to your sites. You can focus on the many smaller search engines to generate traffic. They will generate less traffic for you but they will give you a higher ROI because you can bid lower prices for clicks. I usually like to start off with Adwords to generate traffic because it gives me the most volume of traffic. Without the traffic volume, you can't calculate profit potential. If I were to start my campaigns on the smaller search engines, I would have to wait a long time to generate enough traffic and find my ROI. Other than Google, you can use MSN and Overture to drive traffic to your sites. Each of these search engines have their pros and cons. I usually like to start out with Adwords and only duplicate my campaigns on Overture,MSN, and the other search engines on the campaigns that I find are profitable. Let's review what you have learned in the previous 9 lessons and break down what you have to do. Lesson 1: Adsense arbitrage explained. How to generate instant traffic (thus, instant profits) using Adwords. The idea of making money with Adsense being easier than other methods because your only task is to drive traffic and get visitors to notice and click on the ads. Lesson 2: The types of markets you pick to build Adsense sites in is very important. You want to avoid markets such as 'webmasters' because they suffer from banner blindness the most. Then there are other markets where people are rabid clickers. They see something interesting and click on it by habit. These are the types of markets you go after. Lesson 3: Learn how you can bid .05 for a keyword but still generate enough traffic to your site. You'll focus on keywords where there are few advertisers so you can get first page exposure for your ads. The sheer number of low priced keywords will generate the traffic volume you need to make it work.

Lesson 4: Why you shouldn't rely on precompiled keyword lists to target your arbitrage campaigns. How to find those high paying niches more often. Lesson 5: Why it's important to test as many niches as possible. When you find a niche that is profitable, you'll be able to explode your income by expanding on that niche and finding similar niches. You also learn how to make a majority of your campaigns break even or profit. You learned how to mine valuable data from campaigns which break even. Lesson 6: How to lower your bid prices automatically by writing ads which generate lots of clicks. How to appeal to the emotions of your visitors so they notice your ads. What specific items to test in your ads. Lesson 7: How to generate tons of traffic from nickel keywords. The key is to look where everyone else isn't looking. You can afford to bid on these types of keywords because your ultimate goal is different than what most advertisers want. You can bid on keywords which contain 'free', 'information','tips' etc. Lesson 8: How to generate high CTR on your Adsense pages so you can increase your ROI.

Questions & Answers
Isn't Google trying to get rid of Arbitrage sites? Google's main source of profit is their paid advertising and the Adsense program is a big boost to their income. Looking at it from an infoproduct perspective, Adwords is their product and people who advertise using Adwords are their customers. Adsense publishers are their affiliates. Of course they have to please their affiliates, their customers and also the ring that holds it all together (their search engine users). In July of 2006 Google made some big changes to their Adwords program. People who were bidding on low priced clicks such as .10 and below had their bid prices jacked up to ridiculous prices such as $5-$10 a click. Their excuse was that advertisers needed to follow their landing page quality guidelines. Needless to say, they upset a lot of legitimate advertisers. Things have pretty much gone back to normal now. That means that the bid prices aren't ridiculously high for search terms which have only one advertiser.

Adsense Arbitrage Report – http://www.arbitragerevealed.com I notice that Google will make my keywords inactive if they are getting a very low CTR such as under 1.0% Google sets its prices based on the history of a keyword also. For example, if you bid on the term "html" it will ask for a minimum bid of $1.00 per click although there are less than 8 advertisers on the front page. This is probably due to the fact that it's such a general term and advertisers could not make back their investment on this term. Only Google knows this based on their history data. The way to combat this is to find niches which contain keywords with a short history. Considering the number of keywords that are out there, this isn't as hard a task as you may think. You just have to set up your campaigns first and let Google tell you the history of the keyword before you create a full fledged campaign. How many sites do I have to run? Unlike building hundreds of portal pages, you can simply have a single page website and drive all your traffic to that one page. You would have a page for each niche. When starting off, get yourself a generic domain and just create different pages for each niche. Once you find a niche that is making a profit, move it to its own domain. I've tried all the tricks to get a high CTR on my Adsense pages but it's not working. There are a lot of factors which can result in low CTR. In an earlier lesson I mentioned how 'webmaster' traffic will give you low CTR? There are other markets like that. Don't beat yourself up over one niche. If it doesn't work out then just move on. There are too many niches online to pursue so stop wasting time with a particular niche. It's easy as heck to set up a new campaign in a different niche. Test dozens of niches a day. If you find a winning niche then expand on that niche into subniches and lateral niches. Is Adsense arbitrage viable for newbies? The Adsense business is a dream come true for newbies. You don't need to know too much about copywriting, joint ventures, affiliate programs, email marketing, infoproduct creation, software and all that technical stuff. I'll lay out the steps for you here: 1.) Find high paying niches 2.) Find low priced keywords 3.) Set up simple one page website for high paying niche 4.) Generate list of keywords 5.) Set up Adwords campaign to send traffic to Adsense page. 6.) See if you're making a profit or not. 7.) If not profiting then move into different niche.

My aim was to provide you enough information for you to get started. If you go Google "Adsense Arbitrage" you'll find that there are a lot of people who are clueless about arbitrage. Many times they make assumptions without doing any testing. This method only works for me now because I didn't give up when I lost money. I tested and tweaked my campaigns until they were profitable. What I teach is based on my experience, not on assumptions. Do your own testing if you want but don't ever listen to others blindly.
