Google Sniper 2.0 Review
This Google Sniper Review had some changes since the product first launched but during most of the time it ended with me saying that you shouldn’t buy Google Sniper 2.0.
During the month of June (and part of July) I rewrote this review so that it actually ended with me recommending the product. That change was only a part of an experiment I run since I wanted to see exactly how much money I was giving up by not recommending Google Sniper.
The version you are reading now is the final and most updated version so you can be sure that there is no experiment going on here and what I say in this review is what I truly think.
|Name||Google Sniper 2.0|

Google Sniper Review
The original Google Sniper was launched back in October 2009.
That’s almost 3 years ago folks.
I don’t know of any other information product that is still strong as Google Sniper is almost 3 years after being launched. If you have been around internet marketing for a while, try to think if there is any product that is still being searched for as much as Google Sniper is and still going as strong as Google Sniper.
Here is a screenshot from the Google Keyword tool showing you the exact match search volumes for the main keywords:
And here is a screenshot from Clickbank showing you the stats:
As you can see, Google Sniper is being searched a lot. Those search volumes are in exact match so they show the actual numbers of searches (of the closest Google lets us see).
In regard to the Clickbank Stats you should pay attention to one main number that shows how good the product is selling and that number is the Gravity (or Grav as it is shown in the above screenshot). With a gravity of 287.52 Google Sniper is currently the 5th best seller in the entire Clickbank marketplace and that is for a product that has been out there for almost 3 years and only had one major update.
That’s All The Proof You Need, Right?
Even though the above numbers are pretty impressive when it comes to a Clickbank product in the IM niche, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a great product. It basically shows that the marketing done to promote it is excellent but it doesn’t say much about the product itself.
That’s where I hope I will be of some help with this review.
What Exactly Is Google Sniping?
Google Sniping is the art of building these essentially one page ‘sniper’ sites that rank in the search engines exceptionally well. And they rank well with very little if any off page optimization or link building because of the unique ‘formula’ used to build the sites.
The formula is based on using Exact Match Domains (EMD’s).
Using EMD’s was indeed a great way to get high Google rankings with very little effort (usually without any link building) but that was true in 2009 and part of 2010 and as you probably know, what works great today might not work so great (or work at all) in the near future.
This is exactly the case with Google Sniper. What worked great in 2009 and 2010 isn’t really working so great today and you need more than just an EMD in order to rank in Google.
The Main Question
The main question for me when it came to reviewing Google Sniper 2.0 was:
“Will Google Sniper 2.0 Actually Provide Any Value and/or New Information That Is Going To Be Worth my/your Time & Money?”
As you probably know, mine is not the only review out there about Google Sniper 2.0 but what you may not know is that only few really buy the product or get early access to it and provide a real review.
I actually bought the product again in late May 2012 in order to update this review and I reviewed everything inside the members area.
As you can see, the members area is quite simple to understand and everything is easily accessed thanks to the top navigation bar. Here is a little breakdown of every tab so you will know exactly what to expect.
Getting Started Tab
Here you will find the welcome video from George and simple instruction on how to watch the videos and read the PDF files.
Google Sniper 2.0 Tab
This is where the actual content of the course is found. You will get access to 2 eBooks (Introductory eBook & The Google Sniper Manual), 7 video modules and process maps.
Further Training Tab
In this section you will get access to an additional 8 videos that will cover additional techniques and strategies that will further enhance your ‘sniping’ skills.
Empire Module Tab
Here you will find the all new Sniper Outsourcing Blueprint which is fully covered in 7 videos.
This is the “tools of the trade” page in which you will find links to various tools that will help you with your Google Sniping efforts.
Sniper X Tab
In the Sniper X tab you will find 11 Q&A webinars that George did since the product launched which will add tremendous value to the actual product.
You will also find 23 videos that will cover new techniques, strategies and updates. It also includes a video about the state of Google Sniping in 2012 which just shows you that George keeps updating this course, making sure it is always up to date with all the changes that are going on.
I know that the Sniper X feature was an upsell when the product launched but it seems you are getting it free now when you simply purchase the product and I actually think that the videos inside the Sniper X tab are much more valuable than the main course. Pretty great and valuable information is being shared here.
Here you will get access to the Google Sniper 2.0 support desk so any problem or question you have will be answered in a short period of time. Support is very important and you can be sure that you will find great and easy to access support desk here.
So What’s Really New?
When Google Sniper 2.0 first launched on February 2011 there wasn’t really too much mew stuff inside the members area. That was the main reason I decided not to recommend it.
It seemed to me that George Brown took the original product, repackaged it and re-launched it in order to make more money from the hype of a so called “new” product launch.
Since I bought the product again in late May 2012 and got access to the members area I actually noticed that now it does contain some new stuff that wasn’t there when it first launched. All the webinars that were held as part of the membership since it launched are now inside the members area and there are an additional 23 new videos that cover new techniques, strategies and updates.
The Bottom Line
Google Sniper 2.0 does have new information that you wouldn’t find in the original product but I personally don’t think that it is updated to 2012 and all the recent major changes Google did.
So to answer the main question from above I don’t think Google Sniper 2.0 is worth your time and money since I think there are better products out there that newbies can learn more from and get more value for their money and time.
Remember that by saying this I’m giving up on some money as I proved with the experiment I conducted during June 2012.
So Which Other Product Do You Recommend?
I would recommend you check out the latest release of Mark Ling, AffiloBlueprint 3.0. Mark Ling is one of the biggest super affiliates and a REAL DOER and he is the man behind Affiliorama which is considered by money as the best resource online for affiliate marketing.
Unlike other so called “gurus” that don’t really walk the walk, Mark is a self made super affiliate that teaches you things from his own online experience and he doesn’t just create information products for the purpose of making money like others usually do.
The new AffiloBlueprint is a complete affiliate marketing training course and since Affiliorama is the best resource for affiliate marketing online (IMO) and I’m sure that you will find AffiloBlueprint useful.
