Experiment Follow Up #4 – Neil Shearing 10 Day Cash Secret

Experiment FailedHey all…

I think I have to call this a failure officially now…

Here are some stats for you…

Blog #1… Started March 8th (16 days ago). Total hits – roughly 245 as of today according to StatCounter. Average of 8 visits a day with 17 page views. 38 clickthroughs to my affiliate from the blog.

Blog #2… Started March 9 (15 days ago). Total hits – roughly 31 as of today according to StatCounter. Average of 2 visits a day with 4 page views. 9 clickthroughs to my affiliate from the blog.

Blog #3… Started March 10 (14 days ago). Total hits – roughly 257 as of today according to StatCounter. Average of 8 visits a day with 17 page loads. 10 clickthroughs to the affiliate.

Money earned – $0. Money spent on the 10 Day Cash Secret program – $99.

Doesn’t seem like money well spent to me. What about you?

I think I’m going to let this run up to the first week of April and then request a refund (would be within the 30 days) from Neil if it continues to go this route.

Hope somebody else is having better luck.

Experiment Follow Up #1 – Neil Shearing 10 Day Cash Secret

ExperimentHi all!

Thought I’d update you on my progress with the 10 Day Cash Secret experiment…

I have created three separate sub-domains with three separate feed-related blogs. The one I created on Friday (3/7), another I created early (2am) Sunday (3/9) morning, and a final one I created yesterday (3/10). These are all three in separate niches using feeds from Shareasale using three to five separate product feeds.

So far following Neil’s directions, the first one I created on Friday has been indexed. The other two have not yet. I have submitted all three to Google, Yahoo, and Live Search separately as well as StumbleUpon, which has brought in a few visitors already. No real traffic to speak of beyond that generated by StumbleUpon however.

I am hopeful for an affiliate sale in the first 10 days of each of the three sites. For those in the studio audience keeping score, it looks like this so far:

  • Site 1 – indexed by Google, no sales yet after three full days
  • Site 2 – not indexed, no sales yet after 2 full days
  • Site 3 – not indexed, no sales yet after 1 full day

There you have it. I will update everyone again on Friday (3/14, giving 3 more days) and then sometime on Monday (3/17), which would be 10 days since Site 1 went live.

Note that any posts next week, including the one Monday may be delayed as I am out of town on business for my job. But I’ll do my best to see that results get posted.

Thanks for reading!
