If there’s one thing that Internet and Affiliate Marketers can’t get enough of, it is tools & shortcuts. Every process that can be automated gives us more time to focus on being creative and the next big idea. A good friend of mine launched his own set of tools this week, and it is called SiteSnatcher. I immediately signed up and gave it a test run, so I thought I would share my first impressions.
The first tool I tried was the Blog Commentor. When you are trying to get a new site indexed and get some link juice to it, one of the easiest ways to do that is to comment on related blogs using your URL to link back to your site. The Blog Commentor will take any keyword that you choose, such as “golf”, and come up with a bunch of direct links to the posts that you can comment on. It also has a built in iFrame so that you can just load the blog inside of SiteSnatcher, submit your comment, then hit “Next” and it loads the next blog into the window. This makes the blog commenting process a breeze, you can knock out 100 comments in short order.
Next I tried out the Site Targeting Tool. This is designed for PPC guys that are looking for specific sites to target for the Content Network in their niche. One of the best ways to make the Content Network profitable is to site target instead of just letting Google do it for you. This can be a tedious process of searching for sites in your niche that are running AdSense so that you can target them. This tool does it all for you. Simply put in your keyword, hit go, and it will grab anywhere from several hundred to 1,000 sites in your niche that AdSense on the page. This can also work as a URL scraper for finding sites to target with PPV.
One thing I will mention is that you need to wait a little bit for the results to come in. These tools are doing real-time scrapes of lots of data, so when you hit go it can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes to see the full results. It is all designed to run in the background, so you can set a couple different tools to run, or just work on something else and come back later.
The pricing is based on how much you want to use it. On the basic package, you get 50 “credits” per day. As you see in the screenshot above, the Site Targeting Tool take 25 credits to run. You can run it (or any other tool for 25 credits) twice per day on the basic package. I think it’s a cool way to test it out without spending a ton of cash. If you start using it a bunch on a daily basis, then you can get a bigger package with more credits.
All in all I think that this is definitely going to turn some heads. I don’t recommend products or services very often on this blog, so take it from me, this is a solid service that is only going to get better. If you do PPC on the Content Network, or PPV, or if you do any type of SEO including the EPN / McJiffy / BANS method, then SiteSnatcher is a tool you will want to check out.
