Is Google Sniper 2 Still Effective?
In this article I will review Google Sniper 2 from George Brown and tell you why I believe it is an essential investment in your business for making money today and in the future.
You will learn exactly what Google Sniper 2 is and why I believe it will deliver on its claims to help you make money online. Google Sniper sites are still an effective and profitable way to earn 4-5 figures per month online; even with the recent Google algorithm updates. But we’ll discuss more about that later.
I will expose the good and the bad features of Google Sniper 2 from my own experience using it. This will not be the usual rehashed pre-sell content designed to get you to buy the product.
There are thousands of Google Sniper users online today.
Google Sniper 2 is ranked #3 of all Clickbank products sold, even a year after it was released and has one of the lowest refund rates on Clickbank at 14%. This is a testimony to the quality of the product and the results it gets for users.
If you are one of the growing number of Internet Marketers fed up with bogus “guru” tactics and gimmicks that just don’t work, you need to read this article in its entirety.
What is Google Sniping?
Sniping as taught in Google Sniper is simple. Find a niche within a niche. Target a very specific keyword and build a 4-5 page website around that keyword. Optimize the website around the targeted keyword and Google will reward you with high rankings and you will make money.
Sniper sites can be built in virtually any market or niche. In fact your can build sniper sites around information products and physical products.
What makes these kinds of sites so effective is the simplicity. You are not going to build huge authority sites that take forever to get ranked, but smaller 4-5 page websites (you may need more content depending on the niche and competition) that target a money keyword.
This allows snipers to quickly determine the profitability of a niche without spending days, weeks or months trying to get a site ranked and profitable. In fact, you can build a sniper site is as little as 2 hours and have it ranked in Google in a few days.
I created this site based on a promotional event sponsored by the Philadelphia Inquirer, the major daily newspaper in the metropolitan Philadelphia area where I live.
The Inquirer ran a campaign in which they offer to their subscribers the opportunity to have their daily newspaper delivered electronically on a tablet device – the Arnova 10 G2. The tablet was cheap and I purchased one.
However, I like many other purchasers did not buy an Arnova Tablet case through the Inquirer. In truth, the package that included the case was a bit pricey.
Instead, I found an Arnova 10 G2 Tablet case for sale on Amazon.com that was under $10. And during my search for a case, I discovered that there were a lot of Inquirer Tablet buyers, who like me, were looking for an inexpensive tablet case.
I thought this would be a create niche within a niche for a sniper site so I created a site and targeted the keyword – Arnova 10 G2 Tablet Case – specifically aimed at Arnova 10 G2 tablet owners looking for cases.
You see, while tablet cases for iPads, Kindles and Nooks are readily available at almost any Staples or mall retailer, you can’t find one to fit the Arnova 10 G2. You have to purchase them online. I created the blog and monetized it with an Amazon affiliate link.
By targeting “Best Arnova 10 G2 Tablet case” I was able to rank the site on the first page of Google at position #3 or #4. That was back in May 2012. At the time of this post the site is ranked at position 10.
And since the product was under $10 I generated a lot of sales. But even more awesome, people who bought the tablet cover also bought other tablet accessories too. I got paid on those purchases also.
Now this site took me less than an hour to build and the cost of setting it up was $0 since I built it on Blogger. Not bad right. This tiny site in a micro niche has earned me a little over $200. That is the power of Sniper sites.
Google Sniper Post Panda, Penguin and EMD
The big question on your mind though is, do Google Sniper sites still work after the various Google algorithm updates, especially the most recent EMD update that targets Exact Match Domains.
The answer is yes, but you will have to do a little more work. For example:
- Pay attention to on-page SEO. Be careful not to over-optimize your content.
- Back-linking is essential post Panda. But beware of unnatural back-linking tactics and direct links from low quality sites. That’s what Penguin looks for.
- And with EMD’s only choose .com .org or .net and avoid hyphens. If you’re relying on the pull of EMD’s see #1.
These are just a few basic strategies you’ll want to implement to prevent your sniper sites from being penalized by Google.
Google Sniper 2 – The Good
Here are just 5 aspects of the Google Sniper 2 system that make it an excellent investment.
Markets & Keywords. George utterly simplifies the entire strategy of key word analysis and reveals you 2 different approaches for selecting the right keywords.

You will learn precisely what to do to boost your conversion rates to as much as a staggering 20%. It is an easy, newbie friendly, yet extremely effective copywriting method that is guaranteed to boost your sales. Pretty neat right.
Dominating Google SERps. This is one of the most useful modules in the course. This is the NUTS & BOLTS of the Google Sniper system. In this module George teaches you (1) General Sniper Web site Structure, (2) keyword Variances and LSI, (3) How To Optimize Your Site and much more.
Creating Your Sniper Site. Here you learn how to create content that causes visitors to buy your stuff. There are 4 elements to the Google Sniper method covered here.

Then, using the methods that George reveals you will get your website ranked fast. Add a few cool YouTube tricks to spice up your rankings and you’re all set.

George Brown’s Google Sniper is just one of a handful of Internet Marketing Training systems that remains as relevant today was it was when it was released back in 2008.
George and his team regularly update Google Sniper keeping the strategies current so whenever Google makes a change, you can continue making money “Sniping” with just a few adjustments to your tactics.
New to GS2 is the Empire Module. This is solely dedicated to teaching you how to scale your sniper business using outsourcing (the real key to massive sniper income). George shows you how for pennies on the dollar you can outsource the entire Google Sniper system and cash in for thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.
To be honest, this is what I’ve been doing to consistently rake in 4 figures per month. Once you learn the system, you can just hire people to build the sites and do all the grunt work. This saves you time and scales your profitability 10 -20 fold.
The 104 page Google Sniper 2 manual is virtually the same as GS1. For anyone who purchased Google Sniper 1, you probably won’t learn anything new in the 104 page PDF guide. For those people who prefer to follow a written guide, the guts of Google Sniper 2 aren’t in the PDF manual and I found this disappointing. I usually print out guides, put them in a binder for desk reference when working on a campaign. It makes it easy to add notes, spreadsheets of keywords etc., and have everything at hand.
Google Sniper X
Lastly to keep pace with the inevitable changes in Google, you’ll need access to Google Sniper X.
In my opinion, the Sniper X Module is the most powerful component of Google Sniper 2 and it’s where you’ll get all the ammunition to blow up your income post Panda, Penguin and EMD.
Included here are 25 hard core training videos and live case studies of members Sniper sites dissected by George and his team. This is especially helpful in that you can see live examples of what you need to do exactly to make your sniper sites profitable.
These are not fake sites, but sites submitted by real members of GS2. You get to see the costly mistakes made by other and more importantly, you learn how to avoid them and what to do to fix them.
In addition, you get access to Q&A webinars where you can ask questions and have them answered by George and his team.
Without this kind of insight you will not survive Google and their notorious updates.
You have to pay monthly to access Sniper X.
When you buy Google Sniper 2.0 you’ll get free access for one month, and then you’ll be billed $47 each month. About 3 new videos are added each month to keep the strategy fresh.
Yeah the Google slaps have slightly affected the sniper method, so now there’s a lot of training on back-linking, how to deal with current updates and avoid future updates etc. The benefits are that now, you can target higher traffic keywords with the sniper method.
So for those wanting to know if Sniper still works… yeah it does. And it’s inside Sniper X that you get all the updated information, but it will cost you. And in my opinion, it’s worth it.
I look at it this way. Instead of me having to research, test and tweak to keep my sniper sites profitable, I’m outsourcing the latest strategies and tactics to George’s team. And I get 2 new videos plus a new case study each month.
That’s more than worth $47 a month to me. Besides it’s optional!
