Mike: It’s cool, though. I mean, you said this method that you have isn’t bringing that much money and of course, it’s not bringing in a lot of money but if someone is able to take this and to bring in an extra $20 a day, an extra $50 a day from it, then that would be completely worth it. And it’s these kinds of things that I’m most interested in, not the ones that are like it’s gotta be a full-time job. Like, there’s plenty of thing you can do online. People can go ahead and start an article-writing service, like I could right now go into the Warrior Forum, put up an advertisement saying I’ll write 500,000-word articles and I’ll do it for 5 dollars, 15 buck, whatever the going rate is right now. People will order from you and you can do that but you’re just buying yourself, you’re pretty much setting yourself up for another job, right?
Dave: Yeah. Yes.
Mike: And maybe, you can – I mean for some people that’s perfect. Like, I know there’s people out there – friend of mine, Tom. He does this kind of writing and he’s really happy with it coz he can dictate when he works and he can work from home and whatnot. But yeah, this is definitely something that I’m interested in coz it’s very reminiscent of the adsense sites that I was creating before.
Mike: So, I’m really interested in how you get these little suckers to rank.
Dave: There’s – I mean, there’s nothing better – fulltime job or not, there’s nothing better than kind of waking up in the morning and you know, checking your bank account and there’s this information there and you got a couple of paid up call me mail, you know, saying you’ve made a sale and stuff, you know. It’s not –
Mike: How do you think your sites haven’t been hit by the updates?
Dave: Because they’re so focused. They’re so laser targeted. Like, I’m talking about there’s some that are only three-page sites. You know, some – because I could see that they were gonna be – they were gonna earn money, I fill them out, you know. But there were some that were still doing well, really well in fact and they’re only three pages.
Mike: And the content, do you write it yourself? All of it? Or is auto-generated content or do you – I know you said you don’t outsource but do you outsource writing for your content?
Dave: I’ve only outsourced the writing of content a couple of times and that’s when I wanted out a course in German or something like that. I know that, basically. So, I wrote the articles and I just gave it to someone on Elance maybe, and asked them to just translate it into German.
Mike: You did it – it was an affiliate product in German?
Mike: Did that end up ranking for you?
Dave: Not as so much as I have hoped but you know, it’s still occasionally added some money.
Mike: It’s interesting. The whole foreign language affiliate marketing interests me because I live in Istanbul, Turkey. I’ve been here for five years now. I speak the language so, I could essentially write content in Turkish and I have someone to look it over because I’m sure grammar would be horrible. But I could created content in Turkish and there’s a population of Turkey around 70 million, 80 million – I’m not quite sure what it is. I’m sure someone will correct me in the comments. But it’s a wide-open market. And there are – I’m not sure how many affiliate products but I mean, there’s – I’m positive, it would be much easier to rank for keywords in the Turkish Google than it would be on the English Google.
Dave: Yup. And this is the conversation I keep having with my wife. I’m telling her to write some, coz my wife is Japanese. I’m telling her to write some content in Japanese and get some sites in Google. But you know, things are busy and stuff but yeah, I definitely – I agree. I think it would be far easier to rank.
Mike: You know, what I always wonder though is with – like .us, .au, .ca. All these different country codes for the domain names and there’s that, that comes into play when ranking in the foreign language Google, also I think where the hosting is, or where the domain is registered. Is the domain registered in that country or whatnot. So, there’s all these kinds of little things that come into
