Google Sniper by George Brown, Scam or Not

Google Sniper Scam or Not?


I get to know this so called Google sniper when I got an email from my co author here, +juan delacruz who is involved in Internet Marketing. He made a couple of post in this blog long time ago and have not heard from him quite some time now until I got his email last Wednesday. He ask me if I could help him promote this product called Google sniper. I immediately replied, "are you serious? knowing me, do you actually think I will promote products like that?". Reacting a bit violently he then explained to me that he was just trying, he was expecting that response from me. He also wants me to be aware of it as it is becoming popular fast and sooner or later it will come to the Philippines, get my attention and I will write about it. He knows how I write reviews but according to him he find my writings as "Fact based". He is confident I will not bash anything if there is no concrete reason to do so. But still, even with his flattery I will never "Promote" any type of money making schemes.

The best that I could do for him is to be fair and completely honest of my writing. In addition to that, I also agree to use his affiliate links. I would assume he will get some sort of credits if you click on it or probably he will get a small amount of commission if you purchase the product using his link. I am happy to do that favor because he did a fantastic job of keeping the whole blog free of spam comments. And I feel letting him advertise on the banners is not enough. Additionally, its not one those recruiting schemes that I totally detest. The worst thing that could happen is you bought a crappy product and that's it. What you are risking is just your own money not involving others.

To be honest I don't know how to write a proper formal review. I am not a writer, I am just somebody who knows a bit of English and wants to share something.. lolz
Furthermore, Aside from Internet marketing schemes is not my forte, I have not personally tried it to speak of my own experience but fortunately in this digital age, information is instantly available online. :) 
What I will be doing is just answer in my own thoughts the questions that you will most likely be asking based on the facts I gathered.

What is Google Sniper?

The first time I watched google sniper's sales video, I mistakenly think of it as some kind of a magic tool, software or a system that exploits loopholes of search engines to get you on top very fast and easily. Its what they might want you to think, but just like most sales video, its not what it seems. Its basically just a course about internet marketing. Its made up of PDF files and training videos. Nothing extra special.

Who made it?


The founder of the said tutorial is George Montagu Brown. A young British internet marketer from London who started his career when he was 17 and is now making 6 figure income online.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does it work?

Obviously it a training, it will teach you something.  Its a combination of videos and PDF files teaching you three main principles.

First, it will teach you how to find a good profitable niche that is perfect for you. They help you pick a product to to promote via Clickbank. An online market place of digital information products to sell and be affiliated for a commission.

Second, research the best possible keywords for your niche and create small websites around it called sniper sites and monetize it.

Thirdly, rank those websites highly in search engines and drive as much traffic to it as possible then tweak your sites for maximum traffic to sales conversion.

How much does it cost?

The question most salespeople cringe.. lol
I find it confusing because they have different price plans but from how I understand it. The first option is an offer of $1 for 5days trial then a $67 monthly recurring charge. The second choice is the one time fee of $47 that has a monthly recurring charge of $47. These charges are said to be refundable with in 60 days.

To be honest I don't see the sense why it has those different rate plans. If I were to join, I would get the $1 trial. Access and download everything and will not be paying the recurring charge or ask for a refund after.

So, is google sniper a scam or not?

To answer it directly its both.  I like to split it into two and clarify myself.

  • The product or training is NOT A SCAM. google sniper has a value and proven to be effective. There are real people who are successful to confirm it works.
  • The way they promote/advertise is A SCAM. I don't know what is your definition of a scam, but for me, if lies and deceit are present to get something from you its a enough for me to consider it as such.

    A very obvious deception I notice, is how they hype google sniper as a miracle product that instantly gives you money so fast and easy almost without doing or knowing anything. That projection is totally UNTRUE!!
If i were to promote or sell Google sniper I would inject in peoples mind over and over that this product is just a guide you have to follow systematically and repeatedly for it to work. It might be simple to follow but the only way to success is lots of hard work, eagerness to learn, DEDICATION AND CONSISTENCY! There is no other way around it and its NOT EASY! However, one thing is certain, your effort will be equally rewarded.

I know my way would be very unpopular at first but soon people will realize this is the truth and the only way to their dream income online. When that happens, we can't help it to be famous. Whats happening with their advertising style now is the opposite. Misleading sales materials leads to quick sales and get viral attention  but results in very bad reputation due to the growing number disappointed customers feeling cheated. It makes google sniper more and more despised. 

My own opinion

I have not personally tried Google Sniper so this is just my own theoretical logic on the topic based on the facts gathered.

First of all I find it overpriced, specially the recurring charges. They try and justify it with the overhead cost, but it will then be contradicting to their huge claimed income. So, are they really struggling or just want to make more money? For me, they just want to make more!

Google sniper is built with the newbies in mind, they make it sound so easy that anyone with half a brain can do it so well blindfolded. Totally false!! The truth is you have to manage websites as many as you can. Before that even happens you have to be at least acquainted about keywords, domain names and hosting. You need to learn to use control panel in your hosting and at least wordpress program to create those website minus the coding. And the hardest part of all is SEO(search engine optimization). You need to master it to get those website on top of search results. Just imagine if you picked a popular niche with lots of competition. You will be going against many and most likely web developers who are already expert in SEO. Minor HTML or CSS coding knowledge is also needed to tweak those websites for maximum results.    

Another fallacy they appear to be is that they are some kind of an autopilot program wherein once you set up everything, all you have to do is sit back and watch the money flowing in. Another terrible Lie! Setting up those website is just the start of the Calvary you have to go through SEO is a constant struggle. Specially when your starting out. You have no authority, search engines and even netizens wont believe a thing you say.

Do you recommend that we will give it a try?

More of a yes with conditions! Now that you've been warned I imagine you are ready to in there and get pitched. Always remember, no matter how sweet they talk don,t believe everything.

Only if
  1. Website creation and management is not totally new to you or if you're a novice you have the desire and passion to learn
  2. You are fully aware that it is not easy money.. Again IT IS NOT EASY.. hard work, dedication and consistency is the only way.
  3. You can afford to risk an amount of money. It can be an investment for your future if you take this seriously.
If you meet these three conditions then I could say go ahead and click the button below. There are people out there who made it and I don't see why you can't when you are armed with those conditions I mentioned.

  1. Hi teddybear69,

    Thank you for your honest review and for granting me the favor.. as expected.. hehe..

    Just a few points that I want to disagree.. About authority sites, we are steering away from it.. We don't aim to become one to get on top of Google, what we do is zoom in and niche down on an existing popular niche where in the competition is very low.

    I understand when you say its Its not easy, actually its almost impossible.. That is due to what everybody thinks.. choose a profitable niche and be the best in there.. that is the realm of authority sites..

    Lets say for example "weight loss". there is no way we can get even in the top 10 pages of Google with that keywords. but lets say we niche down to "fast and easy way to loose weight for call center agents" then we have a chance.. but of course, when we niche down we make sure that there is still a substantial amount of searches on it.. then we build websites around that.. that is way more profitable and effortless compared to the struggle you have to do in becoming an authority site..

    but even though its the case, its not for the lazy and for someone who wants to get rich quick.. I certainly agree about dedication and consistency. its truly the key to success in making money online..

  2. From what I have understood, Google Sniper says that you have to make microsites in able to rank well and get sales? This is a black-hat SEO tactic and it wouldn't fare well with Google. It may prove to be okay at first, but sooner or later, it will get penalized unless your microsites are really good in content and quality, but more or less, Google can sense a copycat a lot more better nowadays.

  3. thank you for this review but it disappoints me how boldly you mention not promoting a product but you have a Clickbank link in here. But nevertheless, Google Sniper is a neat tool in creating niche site that could help you find a niche that can rank well and fast especially the long-tail keywords.

    @queengeeee, creating micro-sites is not a blackhat method at all. In fact, is a strategy I am recommending to my e-commerce clients to get some sales on long-tail keywords. From the big e-retail sites they have, we create a smaller category-specific micro-sites aiming to rank on low competition keywords although with somehow low monthly searches. But this could be powerful as the idea is to get this micro-sites get high Google PR and then create few backlinks to the main e-retailing site.

    1. Yes, as long as the site's content is unique and high-quality, it's okay. Uhm, maybe not totally a black-hat, but it's not a white-hat tactic either because it's not 100% organic.

  4. I have purchased google sniper and the video tutorials are really useful. It cost me only $47. There are no recurring costs. Regarding the scrambling of the reviews, Its done by people despirate to earn money. Check out my complete start to end review of the product with sample training videos and insight of the members area.

    Using Google Sniper you will definetly not earn $1000 but it surely teach you the concepts of affiliate marketing in turn help you earn in small amounts about $50 to $100 based on the content presented. It also provides tips to improve the site ranking in google although not first.

    Personally Single page sites to earn a huge income is not possible. Trust me.

  7. The article is mostly true while at the same time I agree with what Sarat Kumar posted. In any case, google sniper is nothing new. It's something that people who specializes on SEO and website developers/marketers have been doing for the past 8 years or so.

    If I am to compare Google Sniper to "my team's method" , Google Sniper is simply outclassed. It doesn't matter how competitive the niche is, you just need to learn how to use simple tools like SEMRush, Ahrefs, Google trends, and Moz. I can go on and on with the tools that you can use but a comment would not suffice. If you've noticed that I didn't mention the commonly used Alexa, it's because it's over-rated and their data isn't accurate.

    As a final note: knowing what tools to use isn't the key to success, it's how you can maximize the potential of that tool. Google Sniper can be considered a tool, but no matter how we look at it, Google Sniper is like a stone-age tool.

  8. Please BEWARE of SCAM FRAUD by Economic Frauds Detection & Prevention Inc.

    Economic Frauds Scam - https://economicfrauds.net

    Around May 23, this year my office received a call from a representative (he refused to mention his name) from Economic Frauds Detection & Prevention Inc. telling us that someone had filed a damaging complaint against our company, although he would give no further details, and we have no knowledge of any such complaint. During the conversation, he suggested that we should make a payment of $650 and in return that they will not make the complaint public as it would damage our reputation. We told him that we would think about it, because it is a corporate matter, and we don't have the discretion to make payments for reasons like this without approval from our bosses. Up until this week, they have been calling us about it continuously. They even threatened to make our company famous with the information that they have by exaggerating the complaint and posting it publicly on their site and all over the internet. They even gave us their site name, which is https://economicfrauds.net, and asked us to check for ourselves what had happened to other companies that refused to settle with them in the past.
