Many new bloggers would prefer to start off simple. Google Sniper is a product I recently found that has made a lot of promises. It is now in it’s third revision–Google Sniper 3.0. Chances are you’ve run across this product and perhaps have read a few Google Sniper reviews. So in this Google Sniper review, we’ll try to get inside this product to see how it works and if it can help you or not.  Or is it another program filled with empty promises where you drop a bunch of money and get nothing in return? You’ll be stunned by what we found out. 

What is Google Sniper?

Google Sniper is a product that teaches you how to create micro sites. These are very small sites that target one product with a few pages and posts.  Micro sites in general, are very limiting in that they are indeed only targeting one product so you would have to have a really good outreach and great keywords to generate enough traffic to make money off a micro site.

The Google Sniper sales page shows you a video of George Brown, the owner and creator of Google Sniper. You can’t see the dates of the sales so there’s no way to know how old this information is. In fact, further into the video, it looks like the date range was 14/11/30-14/11/18. That’s 2014. Four years ago!

What You Get With Google Sniper 3.0

  • Step-by-step video training with George Brown
  • Downloadable PDFs
  • Free one-month trial – Sniper X
  • Bonus: Live coaching with George Brown

The Sniper X Section: This area of the product provides an extra twenty video lessons to paid subscribers. The main purpose of these video lessons is to help you understand the complete concept of niche research, social media, email marketing, internet marketing and just to mention a few. In most cases, you will discover that the video lessons here are longer than other training materials. This area of the Google Sniper software comes with old Q&A webinars that you can watch, time and time again.

Pros:

  • All you need is a computer or laptop and an internet connection
  • No special skills required
  • Free to set up–meaning the software is “free” with your $47 payment
  • Assistance available to help you choose a micro niche
  • Getting a refund is easy

Cons:

  • You have to download software at your own risk and Google Sniper takes no responsibility for damage to your computer. In fact, Google Sniper does not guarantee that the downloads are free of viruses and worms. 
  • Lessons and methods are outdated. Techniques in this product will no longer get rankings
  • Buyers are requested to market to co-workers, family and friends through their social media accounts
  • There’s no phone number or email address. You’ll have to contact the company by sending a letter through the post. 
  • You’ll have to create a lot of micro sites to generate decent income.

Buying a product, no matter the price, always leaves you open to being scammed. If you really want to create a website, join Wealthy Affiliate. They will teach you step by step how to create an online business.

How Much Does It Cost?

In order to download the program, you will be asked for a payment of $47. This $47 covers Google Sniper 3.0. You can also tick the box for a free 30-day trial of Sniper X. After the 30-day trial you will be billed $47 per month thereafter. I live in Ireland so there’s VAT added to my cost (value added tax).

Did you happen to notice the green ON button in the lower left corner of the image on the left above? The one that says by leaving the button ON, you will get a free trial Sniper X as well? This button is ON by default. If you complete the purchase without changing this to OFF, you are automatically enrolled in the $47 monthly subscription that includes a free trial of Sniper X. You’ve been warned!

Refund Policy

The payment page indicates that there’s a 60-day money back guarantee–no questions asked. The product is sold through Clickbank so the return policy is Clickbank’s return policy. After 60 days all sales are final and you can’t get a refund. However, you can always cancel your subscription after 60 days if you wish.

Some Other Basic And Crucial Facts

This product comes with tons of inconsistencies. From the beginning of the course members are linked to a hosting company named CoohHandle. The producer also deems this hosting firm as the best that you can find in the industry. The truth is that George Brown eventually uses Bluehost while teaching members how to use the software. In the member’s areas, George also linked Bluehost to the Rolodex section of the product.

This is a major inconsistency that can jeopardize the learning curve of any member. After promising to offer members the latest update of the program, the producer did not fulfilled this offer. The most glaring inconsistency of this program is the outdated information of the methods described in the product. For instance, members are promised easy to setup program with a one-time use, only to get a member’s area that teaches other forms of SEO and traditional backlinking. Backlinking is no longer considered good practice. In fact, Google can penalize you if your backlinks are poor quality backlinks

Is Google Sniper Legit?

Does Google Sniper actually work? Not anymore. While some materials in the product may be valid and true, large portions of information are obsolete at this point. For a newbie, it may be difficult to know your next direction with this product. This means that a beginner may end up with more trial and error scenarios in the product.

Decisions….decisions…..

The price of this product can be very tempting. $47 isn’t a bad price except that you don’t really know what your getting for that price. Same thing with the $47 monthly subscription. Most people, even people with cash flow issues, could absorb $47. So from that point of view, it’s doable. But should you? If you really want to learn how to build an online business, join Wealthy Affiliate. They will teach you how to build a website that gets tons of traffic from Google for FREE. 

I have to say, I’d give this program a pass. Why? Because even after watching the video and reading about this program, I still don’t have a real sense of what I will learn how to do. Micro sites, yeah, ok. But here’s the problem with micro sites. Google doesn’t value them anymore. You can’t just throw up a quick website page or two and expect people to come clamoring to buy from your site. Those sites are stale within a month and will never get any traction.

This product references Google in it’s name.
Please be aware that this product has nothing to do with Google.

The program information is outdated. Even the video displays results from 2014. There have been several Google updates since 2014. Google has been putting increasing importance on fresh content on your site in order to maintain your rankings. If you have a site that you’ve ignored for a while, you’ll see that site start dropping in the rankings. But that’s a conversation for another post.

You’ll learn how to create small micro niche (sniper) sites at a cost of $47 a month. Instead of throwing away $47, you can build better quality sites for free with Wealthy Affiliate. It’s really a no-brainer. Not to mention, you’ll get more perks. The question you should be asking yourself is, “how long will it take for me to recoup the $47 investment?” As an example, if you published 10 micro sites for 10 different products, you’d have to keep spinning those 10 sites on a regular basis in the hope that you’ll make some cash. That’s a lot of work!

If you are new to Internet marketing, you may find yourself disappointed here. I predict that newbies will get frustrated and discouraged with yet another product they purchase that doesn’t yield results. If you want to learn how to build an online business for free, click here.
