My review of the Google Sniper system
Product: Google Sniper 2.0
Creator: George Brown
Price: $47 for the initial product, $47 monthly for additional training
First and foremost let me offer a brief overview of the system before I go on to address my Google Sniper complaints.
Google Sniper was launched back in 2009, and is still one of the most popular affiliate marketing products available today. This system was developed by guru George Brown, and is basically a series of video tutorials on how to start up your own affiliate websites using niche marketing.
The official website for Google Sniper tells you very little information on what it actually is. In fact, the system itself is very reminiscent of a classic scam page — a one page site with a promotional video, with little to no other information other than an option to buy the system.
It leave me to wonder, why is George Brown not telling anything about his so called wonderful system within his website? Wouldn’t he want to provide potential customers with a bit more useful information and support before they chose to purchase it?
Let’s quickly compare Google Sniper to another program in the industry…
Pricing and what’s included:
The initial $47 program comes with 25 training videos, and a 101 page e-book. For additional training and videos (which you’ll probably want) it’s another $47 per month for Google Sniper X.
Pros vs. Cons.
- Teaches you the basics of web development and niche marketing
- Learn keyword research techniques and how to target “low hanging fruit” keywords
My complaints about Google Sniper 2.0 (The cons):
- The problem with downloadable programs like Google Sniper is the information quickly becomes outdated. Even though the program has been updated since its release in 2009, it still is using outdated techniques that place too much value on EMD (exact match domains). While EMD still are placed in high standing with search engines like Google, they don’t hold nearly as much weight as they once did. The bottom line is you still need content to rank.
- The Sniper system relies on building one pager websites, these websites have very little content, but are designed to rank for low hanging fruit keywords to get traffic. This might still work, but my concern is it won’t continue to work as Google continues to update their algorithm. I think as time passes, sniper sites will hold less and less value.
- It doesn’t come with any additional tools. You’re going to need to supply your own domains and hosting, and the sniper system requires you own many domains. That could get quite pricey when you think about hosting all of them.
- It doesn’t offer support. George Brown will not walk your hand through this. You are on your own.
- It’s expensive ($47 monthly) considering it doesn’t come with nearly anything besides video training. Compared to other programs out there that offer more and of better quality, it’s overpriced.
- Many complaints of people never receiving their money back when dissatisfied with the system.
- Lastly, I really don’t like the way they advertise and the official website sales page, It’s just very scummy in nature.
Who it’s for:
Newbies who want to learn the basics of affiliate marketing.
Google Sniper is not going to lead you towards long term success. The strategies laid out in this program may still work, but it will very rarely have a lasting effect, and as time goes on this program will become outdated (it already has started to and will only continue to get less effective).
