SO WHAT IS GOOGLE SNIPER?
Google sniper is internet marketing course that teaches people how to make money online via Affiliate Marketing.
If you listen to the video sales pitch, which goes on for ages and takes about 15 minutes to get to the point, you’ll think that making money with this system is almost magic. For me it all sounded just a bit too good to be true. So I went to explore a bit more.
The original Google sniper was launched in 2009. Since then there has been several updates the latest being Google Sniper 3.0. It was developed by George Brown who is an internet marketer. The basis of the system is to teach you how to build small websites that focus on single keywords. Then teach you how to get those sites to rank on google.
The theory is that by picking keywords that are low competition you should be able to rank well on google, get traffic and make sales of products that you are promoting on those sites. Sounds good in theory – they make it sound so easy.
To make more money you just invest some of the money you make from previous sites to fund the new ones and so it goes on.
Once you have one site then you pick another product and associated keyword and do it again. If all goes according to plan you will have income coming from each of your sites in a pretty short period of time.
From my experience it’s not that easy or quick to rank on Google you will probably need to spend money to get a good ranking and without a great Google ranking the whole thing falls in a heap. You will also need to spend money on website names (URLs), website hosting and there is probably some payments for link building and outsourcing involved as well. Google’s focus over the last couple of years has been more and more on quality content rather than make a quick buck processes. Don’t think that because this product is called GOOGLE Sniper it is in anyway affiliated or endorsed by Google.
There is another side of the system where you become an affiliate of Google Sniper and try to sell that to anyone you can – that’s fine if it is a product that delivers what it says it will and you are happy to sell it. I think you have a better chance of making money this way.
Google Sniper is one of Clickbank’s best selling Internet Marketing Products which in my mind gave it a bit of credibility. A statement on the Google Sniper website has the following disclaimer:

PRO & CONS
WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT GOOGLE SNIPER 3.0
Once you finally get into the course details there are no more up sells
The course seems to give a pretty decent set of instructions for website development
The product is straightforward and easy to follow.
You get the course manual in PDF format that you can refer back to easily.
WHAT’S NOT SO GOOD
Some of the methods used seem a bit unethical – I’ve seen some comments from people saying that they actually got banned from search engines using the tactics suggested in Google Sniper
The up selling process while trying to make an initial purchase are annoying and confusing
They seem to be trying to trick people into the $47.00 subscription – not a good way to start
Some the proof of success stuff was pretty old.
Some of the information in the main PDF is outdated and as Google changes it’s ranking process from time to time they could actually harm your attempts to rank
Before you learn anything you are encouraged to sell it to your friends and family
CAN YOU GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT?
There is an email help system. I have read complaints from people saying that they just didn’t get help when they needed it. This is one of my key factors for deciding if something is worth getting into – you need help that is there when you need otherwise you loose interest and give up.
There is some evidence that people have had a fair bit of success but then I have read others that say that it is a total scam and not to touch it. I think that can be true for every system. During the marketing video they show you bank account details which show huge earning and claim you can do it with little effort. I simply don’t believe that big amounts are going to come until you have been at it for ages if at all. To me promising way more than is practically possible is unethical and bordering on fraud. I can’t see why people just don’t tell the truth. If it will take me six months then tell me that don’t set me up to be disappointed.
Like all things what you put into it often indicates what you’ll get out of it. Some people seem to make a habit of buying courses and then doing absolutely nothing with them or quitting before they have a chance to be successful. If you keep at it you may do OK. I read a blog by a guy who reckons he made $40,000 in his first year by working about 15 hours a week. He was clearly selling the Google Sniper course as an affiliate which he was totally upfront about. He was also a bit critical of the over promising in the sales pitch and estimated that it took him about a year to develop it to a point where he made real money – that sounds more realistic to me. I have also read comments where a guy was so broke he bought this product out of desperation and had made absolutely nothing. It’s not hard to find negative and positive comments about everything.
If you think this product might be for you then go ahead and purchase the $47.00 course and check it out for yourself if you aren’t happy you can always get your money back if you decide you don’t want it within 60 days.
Personally, I decided to go with Wealthy Affiliate – you can read my review here because
I was curious
they offered a free trial period
I could have two free websites to see if I could do it first
I didn’t have give them my credit card details until I was totally sure I was happy with what was being offered.
