- Easy to get a refund
- Not remotely “hands-free”
- Not at all easy like George promises
- VERY outdated methods and lessons
- Methods will no longer get rankings
- These methods may have worked 1-2 years ago, but they don’t anymore
Review of Google Sniper by George Brown
Most importantly, is it worth buying? My answer is definitely not, which I’ll explain thoroughly in the rest of this review.
What You’re Getting for Your $1-$47-$67
This product has a lot of different price points. There’s a $1, 5-day trial that bills $67 monthly, a $47 monthly fee, and a $47 fee with a one-time recurring $47 fee. What’s the difference?
Well, as far as I can tell you’re not getting more than anybody else with any of them. The most notable (and most obvious) difference is how much you’re paying. That’s about it as far as I can tell. I’m sure George Brown would have a brilliantly articulated explanation of this, but I’ve been to the member’s area and I can tell you I got access to everything for the $1 trial that you would have gotten for either of the $47 plan or the $67 plan. It’s a shame, but it’s true.
Whatever price point you use to sign up, you’re pitched several upsells and then finally taken to the member’s area. Within the Google Sniper member’s area there are seven sections:
-Google Sniper 2.0
A couple of these are pretty self explanatory (like Support and Getting Started), but I’ll take you through all of the others that aren’t as clear.
The “Google Sniper 2.0” Section
This, as you might expect, is where you can browse and view all of the Google Sniper training materials. Granted, there’s quite a bit of material. You receive several video lessons (on average about 30 minutes each) and a GIGANTIC training manual that would be fairly miserable to sort through. But since you’ve paid good money for it at this point, I suppose it’s better to be thorough than skimp on some details.
The lessons are very in-depth, but it’s clear that George didn’t prepare for most of them at all. There is a lot of pausing, fumbling, and reworking on camera which can be extremely frustrating if you’re trying to learn. Worst of all, a lot of the methods taught in this area are out-of-date and the central idea of the program (build 2-3 page websites optimized strongly for a single keyword) is no longer effective with Google’s latest updates to their algorithms (Panda and Penguin). This means the program fails to work as advertised, and that is reason enough to not buy the product.
The “Further Training” Section
This section is where George Brown basically breaks every promise he made of the Google Sniper program being hands-free after you setup your sites. Here he teaches traditional linking methods that will be necessary on top of the training from the first section, working hard on conversions for your site, digging into CPA offers, and more. This “further training” section should just be labeled “The Additional Work I Didn’t Tell You You’d Have to Do on the Sales Page“. The lessons here aren’t very different than the lessons from the first section. There’s still a massive lack of preparedness before turning on the camera, a ton of fumbling, and things being taught about search engine optimization that just aren’t true anymore.
The “Empire Module” Section
The purpose of this part of the Google Sniper member’s area is very simple: to teach you how to outsource all of these methods. Now you’re paying someone to implement these out-of-date and ineffective methods which will result in more wasted money in the end. How fun!
The “Rolodex” Section
In this section, George Brown links you to a ton of other resources through his affiliate links so he can make more money. Are some of them pretty helpful when you’re working to get ranked in the search engines? Absolutely. but over 60% of the stuff he listed here (particularly the “Bonuses from Marketers” section) are just one last attempt to pad his wallet with your hard-earned money.
The “Sniper X” Section
The Google Sniper “Sniper X” section is about twenty more video lessons that George Brown has put together to teach you other aspects of internet marketing. Email marketing, social media, niche research, etc… Just like all of the other video lessons, these are significantly longer than they need to be due to unpreparedness on George’s part before hitting record. At points they are very difficult to sit through because George is moving at the rate of molasses in the wintertime. There are also old Q&A webinars for you to watch in this area, which are generally unhelpful because they’re not organized in a way that is beneficial or easy to follow (it’s kind of like being given a book without a table-of-contents to show you which page contains the information you need).
Other Important Notes
There are some other important inconsistencies to be noted from this program as well. At the very beginning of the course, George Brown links you to a hosting service called CoolHandle and describes it as “the best”, but when he’s going through his training videos you can see that he personally uses Bluehost, a much more reputable company. He then links to Bluehost in the “Rolodex” section of the member’s area, and inconsistencies like this concern me very much, as they should concern you whenever you see them. This usually means someone is directing you through a high paying affiliate offer using their affiliate link instead of referring you to a service they’ve used and is the best for you.
Another important note to make is that George Brown promised all customers of the original Google Sniper lifetime updates, but once he released Google Sniper 2.0 he did not fulfill his promise. He made everyone pay for Google Sniper 2.0 just like they paid for the first one, and the vast majority of them appear to be very underwhelmed and disappointed at the difference between the two of them. That’s a very good way to upset a lot of people, and serves as kind of a “screw you” to your existing customer base. As far as I’m concerned, anyone handling their customers with this poor level of service should not be teaching anyone about business.
There are a lot of other small inconsistencies and inaccuracies throughout the program, but the one that should be most noted and is most concerning is how out-of-date all of these methods are and the fact that you’re promised one thing but given another. You’re promised a one-time use, easy to setup program where you only have to do off-page SEO once, but you’re given access to a member’s area that teaches you how to do traditional backlinking and other forms of SEO when those methods fail you. You’re promised a hands-off system but delivered one that requires a ton of work and upkeep. You’re taught SEO but most of it is out-of-date and worthless at this stage in Google’s life.
Overall, you’re promised a lot and delivered very little in comparison.
The Final Verdict
Is this program worth purchasing? I have to say no. Although there is a lot of stuff in this program that is true and valid, a very large chunk of it is ineffective at this point and out-of-date. When you’re a beginner (who this product is targeting) it is near impossible to pick out the good seeds from the bad seeds, so you get caught up in a lot of trial and error when you were promised something that would be clear and easy to follow. Under-delivery on promises like this will always result in a negative review on my blog.
Much of the search engine optimization (SEO) taught in this program can still be used today, but not in conjunction with a lot of the other SEO tactics taught in the program. You’re being told to do one thing that is effective, then being told to do something else that’s counterproductive to your rankings and will cause Google to punish your site. I can only liken this to putting out a fire on one side of your home then running to another room and setting the curtains on fire. Concerning SEO, the Google Sniper program teaches you to take two steps forward then shoot yourself in the foot. Again as a beginner, it’s impossible to distinguish the good ones from the bad ones, so the product fails to deliver yet again.
I saw many people on the forums discussing this. Some were saying that the program was awful and didn’t get them the rankings they were promised, and others would come to George Brown’s defense and tell that person they needed to do more high-quality backlinking and put more work into their website rankings. The problem is: that’s not what you’re promised in the beginning! That’s basically admitting the fact that Google Sniper is flawed! If you have to do that extra work, you’re not getting what you paid for when you originally signed up. George promises easy rankings with barely any follow-up work and you’re given something that only works if you put in a ton of extra legwork. That’s just another example of how the Google Sniper product under-delivers.
All-in-all, you can definitely find a better affiliate marketing information product at this price point, especially since George Brown charges $47 recurring commissions for some reason that I still haven’t figured out. There are people in this industry that charge less for their program, give better lessons, more content and variety, more up-to-date information, and are more knowledgeable experts concerning affiliate marketing than George Brown appears to be in the Google Sniper member’s area.
Save your money for a rainy day when you can hunt down a product with a better reputation. It’s just not worth buying into.

Summary: Promises traffic, but delivers a lot of work and outdated information
Description: Google Sniper is sold as an automatic traffic machine, but all it gives are a bunch of lessons which are mostly out-of-date. Read this full review for details.
Rating: 1 out of 5.
so because you are reviewing scam marketing schemes, you are entitled to be clean? Your scheme is not any cleaner than those you review.
I don’t believe your bull###t.
Then buy the product, waste months trying to get it to work, and find out for yourself that the information is outdated and useless to building a successful internet marketing business in today’s search climate. You won’t hurt my feelings by wasting your money – I’m just trying to help.
Hi Ian. My name is Gary and like most, I’m looking for good, real, reliable way to make money online since I was laid off last month. I got an email yesterday about a system call Traffic Monsoon. It looks tempting. Have you heard of it? Also, can you suggest a good reputable software that really makes money? Please feel free to email me at [removed for commenter privacy].
I would certainly be glad to hear back from you. You seem like a very sincere person and would take your advice most appreciative. Thanks.
Hey Gary! We haven’t reviewed Traffic Monsoon, but based on what we’ve seen on the sales page, it’s making some pretty unrealistic claims (as does every “automated” traffic platform). The best place to get started would probably be one of our free training courses, specifically SIMPLE7 if you’re fairly new to all of this. I hope that helps!
Ian, can you please tell me what is the best totally free waythatI can publish and sell my poetry online? I was thinking of using my Samsung Galaxy or my old iPhone for the postings. Any thoughts?
I’d recommend buying a book on Amazon about compiling and self-publishing a book. Unless it’s slam poetry that has great production value and could go viral on YouTube, I can’t think of a good approach to building a poetry website that produced consistent income.
What is your take of
Easy Cash Code System?
When you have time
It was created by Ronnie Montano, someone that’s known for applying a cookie-cutter sales system and promising easy, fast riches that literally never delivers. You can read more in my review of him here.
It was so refreshing to read your friendly and helpful replies to all the many people who are sincerely searching for an online opportunity to earn money.
I have written a teaching manual . . . a phonetic guide . . . for students of the English language and loaded the 1st free lesson on a website years ago but have had no ratings or feedback since then.
As the manual is intended for people who are struggling with English, my target markets are Europeans and Far Eastern people.
My questions are:
would you recommend Clickbank as a platform on which to offer the book?
could you advise me please on any international affiliate programs that would expose it to non-English speaking countries?
Thank you Ian. I am following you.
Well, I’m not sure Clickbank would help much, Ave. Simply placing a product on Clickbank doesn’t do much except leave a $50 hole in your bank account due to the application fee. You’d still have to do a lot of promotion and recruiting affiliates, and the only way you’d be able to attract worthwhile affiliates is if you’ve made it profitable and convert well on your own, and have data/statistics to share with them proving that they’ll do well if they spend the time and effort promoting your product. So getting on an affiliate network really wouldn’t be the solution for you at this stage, I’m afraid. It sounds like your time would be much better spent learning how to grow/promote it yourself, after which you could start recruiting affiliates since you’ll have a proven product that you can show their target market will buy. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
Hi Ian. I so wished I would have done more research on google sniper. I purchased mine 2 days ago. The only research I have done was reviews but when I got in the members page and followed by first direction: Let all friends and family know what you are doing, make a youtube video promoting the product, and this is before you even know it works to give you honest opinion. Wow. Just wrong. I asked for my money back, but unfortunately I bought that last minute upgrade, you know when he says buy it now because you will not get a chance to later. Well, I fell for that too. I spend a little over 300 dollars. I hope it is refundable but I am not getting any replies at all from them when I asked to cancel, other than, wait.. a new version Tuesday is coming, really jeessh. I doubt that. The material was from 2010, that is 5 years old. I guess I was conned. Should I give up on making money online? Is there any programs that are good that actually work without making you feel you are doing something morally wrong? I appreciate you review on this and thank you for being honest.
I’m really, really sorry to hear that, Brenda 🙁 But I think I can help. You should be able to get a refund (for the product as well as the upsell) by following these steps.
It’s definitely possible to make a living online, but it takes a lot of time, effort, and acquiring new skills. You can read about the most legitimate training I’ve found for internet marketing here. And if you have any questions at all after reading it, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me a message! I’m happy to help any way that I can.
thank you so much whatever i got to know from you about GS.I was going to get started with it but now not at all.
well i just wanted to know about “my advertising pays.com”,
is this site real for online income? I want to start but I dont know much about this site.
No problem, Prem! I’m happy I was able to help save you some money. I’ve conducted a review on My Advertising Pays too and, although it’s getting a lot of attention right now, it’s not a very good product according to many honest, truthful current members that have reached out to me. In some cases they’re racking up an account balance but they’re being forced to just roll it over into more “credit packs” because MAP restricts them from withdrawing the funds so that they can get paid real money. This results in their account balance going up and up and up, but them being completely unable to actually pull out the money that they appear to be making in the members’ area.
Its a shame I didn´t read this before I made my purchase… I thought the same thing, that this was a piece of software plus support area for members. It´s not. It became clear when downloading and giving a glare to the pdfs (which are really the actual product he´s selling).
He is compelling, I must say, but the system is quite more complicated than he makes it look like. I´m not a newbie to internet and, being honest, haven´t yet tried to build a sniper site, mostly because after looking at the products being sold in clickbank, the sensation was that half of them are a total scam. I don´t want to scam people. Even if it brings a lot of money in return.
I suppose there are lots of people whose morals are not as restrictive as mine and could eventually earn a lot of money ( after learning a LOT about SEO positioning and more) not as much due to sniper as to learning the basics of marketing online and some websites given to play with.
I’m sorry to hear about your experiences. If the purchase was recent enough you should be able to get your money back pretty easily! Just let me know and I’ll send you a link to walk you through the step-by-step process. I think the refund limit is 60 days.
thanks for your article, I have checked googlesniper site as well. their website is not professinal in my opinion. it is like other makemoney sites from internet.
but I have also read some other information that they have revised GS 2.0 for 2014. after some changes at google. do you think it is still scum? or in another words; is your article includes these innovation at GS? (if there is any of course.)
and which program or course do you suggest for a beginner at affiliate marketing.
I revisited Google Sniper on another website less than a month ago, and it’s still far from worth paying for. George Brown has been re-releasing this claiming that it’s been updated year after year, but the core of the product has never changed.
If you haven’t checked them out yet, I highly recommend you look over my free resources section and see if there’s any useful information/training there for you before deciding to buy any other products. I hope that helps!
Thanks, I have checked frees stuff and keep checking. Nice website btw! 🙂
Great review! P.T. Barnum said “There is a sucker born every minute.” Unfortunately, I’m one. I almost became one again. Thanks to your review I won’t be. I was just trying to find ways to promote my presently Free Information Site and later transform it into one that will provide some income to pay form my invested time. The GS site seem very inviting like many others and I thank you greatly for the life raft. Your site is Bookmarked. Thanks a Million. Dane
No problem at all, Dane! I’m very glad that I was able to save you a little money. If you have any questions related to IM in the future, don’t hesitate to reach out.

and now,i dun think so.
Hey Chandralee! I’m glad you found my review before buying into Google Sniper – if I can help with anything else down the road don’t hesitate to reach out!
hi ian, i am really looking for an online job. I saw that G.S is the top most paid online job today so i have watched the video. But before I download the said site, I thought of thinking about George Brown in the web and I saw your review. I don’t have dollars to donate and I just need a part time to have my debts to be paid. Ahm.. Can you give me an advice on how to find a real online job? Not a scam. cause I really need this a lot. Hope that you will have time to share me something. Thank you very much for this review. I might loose a larger amount of money if I decided to continue that site. Thank you Ian 🙂
No problem at all, Loudy! If I can help with anything else in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know. Regarding a legitimate work at home job – I recommend checking out my free resources section before buying anything so that you can learn as much as possible for free without paying for any programs and risk being scammed. And if you need more on top of that my #1 rated product review can be found here. I hope that helps!
OML….it’s so easy to trust some-one with a story like Georgie Porgie. I paid $47 after watching his first video for the GS 2.0 … only to be asked in the next step after paying (expecting to go to the member lounge) to pay $97 (NOTE: Australian dollars higher) and that was it for me, I found this review at the 2nd step and I wish I found it before this. Never the less, I’m dropping out $55 short, but that’s better than thousands….thank you so much for allowing us to warn others. I’m truly disgusted!!!
Hey Natasha, no problem at all! I’m glad that I could help. You can actually get a refund very easily for the money you’ve already put into it and it should only take a few minutes of your time. I’ve explained the refund process through Clickbank (the platform that George Brown uses to sell Google Sniper) to another follower on another review, and you can read that explanation here. I hope that helps!
you really really such a nice person and honest too believe me if i not get this help today i am going to buy that google sniper what ever coz lots of people are effected coc he have got all great comments at all but bro seriously hats off thank you very much keep helping those who really confused like be GOD BLESS YOU MY FRIEND..
Hey Sammy – I’m very glad to hear that my review helped save you some money! If I can help with anything down the road, don’t hesitate to reach out. Best of luck to you Sammy and don’t be a stranger!
I too was about to buy this and thought I had better check out the reviews as I have been scammed before or the program was too complicated. I tis so hard to find honest people these days, and it is such a shame for people who really need that extra cash. So thank you so much for being honest. Any help with a real proven program would be much appreciated. Feel free to email me if you have something that actually works.
I’m very glad that I could help, Shirley! Before going and purchasing any other program in this industry, I would recommend checking out the “Free Stuff” section in the top navigation of my site. There is a great deal of free lessons and free training there which you should find very helpful, and you don’t have to pay anything for it. I hope that helps!
Hi Ian, thanks for your honest review. I’m waiting for your next review 🙂
No problem at all, Justian! If there’s anything else I can help with in the meantime, let me know! Thanks for reading and commenting.
Is there a easy and better one then this I really need help and this always sounds to good to be ture
There’s no such thing as an “easy” way to make money on the internet. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, I recommend checking out the lessons and training I have made available in my “Free Stuff” section, which you can navigate to using the top menu on this page.
Hi I am looking for a on line business that’s not a scam, I a certified nurse who has had two major back operations in a year and a half. My doctor is telling me I will now be returning to my nursing field. So I am asking you if you know of any real legit business on line.
Hey Rick! Have you checked out my free resources page yet? There’s a lot of free stuff there that I developed myself after being in internet marketing for ten years, and it should really, really help you without having to pay anything out of pocket and risk getting scammed. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
I just finished watching the GS pitch, then I came here to read your review. I am sure glad I have your site bookmarked. I look forward to all of the reviews that you give on the different products that are being pitched to Internet Marketers. They are honest, and the feedback from others helps others know what the product is really about.
No problem, Wade! And thanks for bookmarking my site – I’m glad that I could help 🙂 If I can help with anything else in the future, don’t hesitate to reach out!
nice work here and its nice to come across a fellow Austinite =)
No problem Jeff! Gotta love Austin 🙂 If I can help with anything else down the road, don’t hesitate to reach out!
Very good review .are there any make money from home or Internet that works or are they all scam. I’m not trying to get rich quick.
Hey Robert! Have you checked out my free resources here on the site? There’s a lot of helpful information and free training there to get you started before you jump into paying for any other programs, and the content in my free training is much higher quality than most paid training that’s out there. Does that help you at all?
Hi Ian, I was also so into GS, but after reading this I do have 2nd thoughts.
Glad that I could help, Ivor! Thank you for reading and commenting to let me know that you found it helpful!
Thanks for the honest review. I was just about ready to buy this when I decided to do my homework. I read through some very positive comments elsewhere. Negative comments were actually deleted! I’m sure glad I found your site. I was looking for something that would help me get some cash to implement something big. Pros: big profits (enough to make millionaires) Cons: need considerable startup funds. Obviously GS won’t do it for me. Thanks a million.
Mayby your points are valid, maybe not.
I could only trust a critic would wasn’t also trying to promote either own angle on internet ‘how to’ products or isn’t someone elses affiliate. That to me is a basic conflick of insteret. That in it’self bring up the RED flag!
If your going to sell something then sell it!
If your going to critisize, then make your money somewhere else!
I can completely understand where you’re coming from, L.J. and I appreciate your feedback. However, when you’ve reviewed over four dozen products in this industry, you’re going to come across a handful of decent or at least “not so bad” ones that actually do a decent job teaching newbies which prioritize training and content over making as much money as possible. I don’t believe there is anything ethically contradictory about placing an affiliate links on those reviews and referring people to legitimate products, especially if you are also the source that helped save them from buying into an outdated product making a bunch of false claims (which probably would have taken their $47, $97, or $197 and given them nothing in return without you).
What you’re essentially saying with this criticism is: Ian, I want you to pay out-of-pocket for these products that you review and never have a shot at recuperating any of the investment you’ve put forward to help others. Also, you don’t deserve to get paid for the hours upon hours you invest in each one of these reviews for helping people. If you’re going to review things negatively and help others, your site can’t make any money if it’s going to be perceived as legitimate. You need to spend the money on all of those products and work the site as a full-time job without ever making any money.
This project is not about making money, but any project that is as labor intensive and time consuming as this one which also requires up-front investment to buy the product in order to give it an honest and thorough review needs to recuperate it’s losses somewhere.
A legitimate and honest business is one that provides a product or service that solves some kind of problem of a person.
There are all kinds of offers online for marketers and for other people: food, cars, iphones, etc.
Many of them are real scams. And when one seeks advice or a review from an expert on whatever subject one is interested in, one can save thousands of dollars, hours and even ones life.
One someone spends money and time testing a product and/or service and honestly presents his/her findings to other people that person is providing a valuable service. That honest review can save and has saved other people thousands of dollars.
That person has spent money and time, which is money, too, to provide us with honest review. And that person needs food, housing, clothing, pay utilities, maintain his/her health, provide for a family, etc…
And all that costs money…
And if that person has tested several products he/she must have reached the good ones. And I would be very interested in knowing what is that good product or service that that reviewer has discovered.
And I do really expect to see a product or service recommendation from the reviewer. The expectation is that if the reviewer has spent money and time testing different products, I don’t have to spend money and time unnecessarily with worthless products or services. The reviewer has done that job for me.
What I do really expect that the reviewer will provide me his/her affiliate link for a product or service that is legitimate and honest.
If IAN has reviewed a product here and he says that it is not worth our money and time, I will expect that he will recommend me a product in the same niche that will be worth my money and time. And I will want to compensate him by being his downline affiliate of that program if that is possible.
Any way, most of us here aren’t really wanting to buy specifically GS, we are really looking for a legitimate and honest online money maker. Most of us are looking for something that is simple and doable.
And if IAN is providing that to us, it is legitimate and honest for him to receive monetary compensation for that if we want to join the program he is recommending.
Any way, he has given us this review for free and is giving us free information (ebook) on how to approach affiliate marketing. We don’t have any obligation to join his program.
Thank you for the support, Antonios! I greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for the enlightening guide.
Before reading this page of yours I came across this and purchased instantly.
So what would you say now 😛
Thank you Ian, You save my pocket i’m almost done to click the download link of google sniper 2.0
I’m happy that I could help, Rahul!
Thanks Ian for your advice & reviews. I almost bought GS! Glad that I’ve found yr website & the feed back from GS users. I’m new to IM. Should u have any recommendation, please let me know. Meanwhile, I’m going through your website.
Hey Daniel! Have you read my eBook or seen the video lesson I did on the 5 rules for succeeding in affiliate marketing? I think both of those things could be a very good start for you, and both are free so you don’t have to worry about spending any money!
THANK YOU. I was *literally* halfway through inputting my debit card information to buy the $1 Google Sniper trial when I remembered I’d seen the program on your negative list. I am SO glad I found your site.
I’m glad you remembered, and I’m even happier that I could help you Amanda! Let me know if I can do anything else to help 🙂
I have now been exposed to this GS sales pitch for at least three times. And I have been real tempted to purchase it, with today being the final deciding time. I am so glad that before hitting that DL button I took the time to do my research and, lo and behold, I came across your site with such an elaborate (and fearless) review. It was a moneysaver for me and I thank you for it. Although not a newbie online, I am a newbie in the whole internet marketing arena, including affiliate marketing. It looks like I would have never been able to master that GS product. I have already purchased everything under the sun and I haven’t found anything that has been complete. There always seem to be something missing. I believe this is done intentionally because most marketers want to sell either their monthly (continuity) memberships or their ongoing coaching programs.
A few years ago, I tried my hand at affiliate marketing once with a CB product, and didn’t produce any results for me. Affiliate marketing, however, is the thing that I would love to do and master. Any recommendations on how to do this with at least some success will be greatly appreciated. If you have knowledge of a good program that teaches affiliate marketing, step by step, in a Dick and Jane fashion, I would appeciate knowing about it. Please email me with the information if you are so kind. Thanks.
Hello Carmelinda! Have you downloaded my eBook or signed up for the SIMPLE7 email course I offer yet? I think either of those will be very helpful to you in getting an honest and fair start, and they’re both free. Let me know!
I goto into George Browns coaching program…for $2000 and lost my shirt in the process. NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!…oh yeah…my coach Renny Williams walked out on me after teaching me NOTHING!!!….what a joke!…
You who got this bad experience with George Brown’s Google Sniper.
I had almost the same but I lost $3000 and had the same coach Renny Williams who also walked out on me and claimed George Brown himself takes over. After that I never heard nothing more from them. We should both report them. I definetly will and I want my $3000 back. This jokes have to stop and prevented in future.
Smok’em out, Ian!!. Way to many BS out there, ripping the hart out of the the beautiful IM way of life. Seeing peoples dreams shattered by ruthless sales-men and lair actors with the same old “rags to riches” in no time, makes my stomach churn and spin. Not mentioning what it does to my vocabulary.
Keep up the good work!!
Thanks for the encouragement, JP! I’m very happy that I could help 🙂
thanks for more information on this. I was about to give it a try until I read this. I have tried other systems as well and afraid once again just to be disappointed. I need to stop trying to think I can work from home and provide for my family. In reality I just keep getting ripped off. Again thanks for saving me!
The more I see these sales pitches, the better I get at detecting the “bs” factor. I watched the video thru to the end just to see how it was spun, and then Googled for reviews and found this site. Thanks for confirming what I already knew. It’s not a product I’ll be purchasing. Alarm bells were ringing from the start when George said he was looking for Google’s loopholes. These will always, sooner or later, be fixed by Google so why waste your time and possibly your reputation. Loved your review by the way – your sense of humour took the sting out of the time spent watching Georg’e speel. Cheers
I also bought google sniper and learned that George Brown is the name of “POCKET WHOLE”
Yes, he is just a whole in my pocket and grabbed lot of money and left me frustrated.
Now I don’t have trust in e-marketing at all.
Awesome, thanks for this review. I was actually considering buying this thing. I had no idea what I was buying, all I knew was the tutorial, I think 6 videos of his, that were uploaded to Youtube for free. Didn’t know the whole kit was just a bunch of tuts.
thanks, i been looking at this myself and the hype has got me…the same tactic videos…..graphics, “buy my technique” trick…well show me that it work and I will surely pay what you asking for!! here are those programs lol….thanks about this evaluation
maybe you could suggest a course for a newbie?
Thank you Ian for taking the time to give full details and perspective of this program. You summarized everything everyone needs to know about the Sniper. I have many emails detailing how SEO’s work and are more useful than GB’s unsteadiness. For me it was easy to spot the gimmick beforehand by just his use of the camera zooming in and out, this is a tactic to get one to buy. What you did to cut through the BS and explain what this program is all about is far better than be sucked into purchasing it.
Thank you very much for the kind words! I’m very happy that I could help.
thank you very much for your articles.
i have been searching for an online business for over 6 years and i haven’t come across someone i can trust. they are all liars.
they say they are making alot of money by their systems, bu it’s truly by stealing from people.
Wow! I also almost went for the sniper x stuff, just googled it and decide to read its reviews. Thanks, you just won a follower in this newbie
Thank you Andrew! I’m very happy that I can help save you a little money. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Am a student and I nearly fell for sniper, am looking for a way to work/make money online, pls reply if you can help
This is the first site I’ve found to actually give
A real opinion. Thank you, he almost had me convinced!!
Also, I recently joined empower network.
What’s your opinion on them?
I bought this system a few months ago on fiverr for about $5 cause everything on there is $5 and the guy who sold it to me told me he makes a ton of money on google sniper. Well I said for $5 you can’t go wrong it saves me all that other money sniper charges you when you sign up.
Well because I was so busy between work and school I could not make the time to try the system so it sat on my desktop for about 2 months and as of a month and a half ago I decided to try the system and see what all the hype was about. I come to find out that here I am about a month and a half later and NONE of the 6 websites and counting that I have set up are even listed on google and google has no clue they exist.
I don’t care that I spent $5 because it was only $5. But the lie is that this program was claimed to work even the guy who sold it to me told me it would but it does not work at all. At least not for me. I am a broke college student who owes more money in debt to people and companies than I even make a month. I need a system that won’t rip me off. I am full time student and full time working and do not have enough hours in my day for a 2nd job. So what do you suggest?
I am trying to get out of debt not add to it and them domain names cost me like $80 a domain since they charge me for the whole year in 1 payment instead of monthly and x that by 6 and that’s a lot of money I spent on domains for a crap system that did not work. I appreciate your review but a recommended product you suggest would be good as I am lost for all hope and have spent too many long hours and nights looking for money making systems online all of which ended up being scams. I appreciate the help man.
I’m sorry to hear about your experiences John. This is why I gave the program such a negative review.
As far as a legitimate program, I recommend checking out my review on wealthy affiliate, or the Chris Farrell membership. Both of those are pretty good programs, but make sure you read the reviews to decide which one is best for you.
Phew…i almost bought this. Thanks man. You saved my wallet!
Glad I could help Dane!
Thanks for saving me Ian !
I just want to know a better reliable program and more information about this kind of market.. So If you can help me out I would really appreciate it..
Hey Sam! You can find a list of the only products that I think are legitimately helpful on this page: http://www.nomorebsreviews.com/positive-reviews/
I hope that helps!
Thank you so much, I nearly bought this today!!
It’s so hard to find honest reviews anymore, you are a credit to the internet.
Keep it real!
I’m glad I could help Jason! Thanks for the encouraging words 🙂
Thanks very much for your review, but there goes another blow to my dream for easy money
Hey Kevin, unfortunately there’s no such thing as “easy money” in internet/affiliate marketing. It takes a lot of learning and hours of hard work to get up and running legitimately. It’s possible, but it’s not easy!
Thanks for this post Ian! You saved me money, can you recommend the best program that’s out there and email it to me please? thanks again i appreciate it!
Hello Diamond, please check out this page on my website for my recommendations: http://www.nomorebsreviews.com/positive-reviews/
Really thank you for the review! This world needs more people like you who are willing to save others selflessly. 🙂
I wonder would you mind also emailing me your insight of the affiliate marketing?
Thanks Ian for “save” me with your review..Could you please tell me what is the best or recommended affiliate program..
Hi Ian! Thanks a lot for the info! Can you please send me an e-mail with a few guides to get me started? I already have a good looking website and want to know how to boost traffic.
Thanks in advance!
Many thanks for you review on google sniper, very useful information. Could you recommend a good affiliate system please?
Thank you Ian. I wish we had more people like you in the world who like to help others.
Hey Ian whats up,
I tried to contact a few times already and each time I apologize for bothering you once more but seriously man please can you please help me get started i tried once again and yet again I failed so please please contact me by email or something.
Thanks once again
I really appreciate the thorough review of this product. I feel it is always necessary to step back and do a google search of any online business because you just to need to make sure it is not a scam. Some scammers may even try to cover that base so you may want to check several links before coming to a decision on the system or product.
thansk for the heads up Ian, I almost got caught up with this scam… do you recommend any real programs in this field that can be used ?
thanks in advance.
I liked your advice on these posts. i am looking for a true legit way to make money from home, or on my spare time. I have a full time job but have a lot of downtime to start an online business. Any suggestions? I want something that actually works.
Thank you guys especially Ian who was willing to spend his money and valuable time to find out the truth for all of us. I was about to give Mr Brown my first $1 but b4 doing that I searched about the review of his program. After reading Ian’s review together with all of yours above, I returned back to that tab and close without downloading it. So credit goes to you Ian in particular and other supporters too.
I’m looking for this kind of online work from home, if there is something like that existed. I would appreciate very much if you, Ian, have time to send me an advice, if possible, plz!
Thanks Ian, much respect for sharing this. You saved me from trying out something that is “too good to be true” product. Plz send me via email recommendations on affiliate systems.
Many Thanks =)
Can you please email me of your recommendations.
Ian, I was looking at this item but now have many questions thanks to you. I launched my oldies music blog recently and want to generate more traffic. I have great knowledge and post new content often. What product similar to Google Sniper would you suggest? Any other products that would help my blog from anybody would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to your reply. Thank you. Mr Ed
Thank you for the informative review. I am always so skeptical of these kinds of programs. I do wonder if there are any legit methods that actually work. I assume if there are they are not “lots of money for almost no work” but instead a reasonable return on investment of funds, knowledge, and hard work. If you have any suggestions for other methods to investigate I would appreciate it.
thanks for the info you have posted here. I have been looking for a system that works but there seems to be too much scam out there. I was seriously considering going for Gsniper until I read your post and now I am back to square one.
I really want to make some money online and am willing to put in the hours to make it happen but I cant seem to get a system tha works.
Any ideas on a good working program?
thx a million for the review , the product might be outdated as you say but I kind of like the principle , can you please advice of anything similar that actually works now adays , what is the best product out there according to your opinion ?
I ran across your reviews doing a search for a particular affiliate program for sale. It has been very helpful to have a neutral input. I have gotten a few ideas for making money on the internet with affiliate sites and marketing. I have never done anything like this and really don’t know where to start. Seems to be a lot of potential doing this type of business if you get the right training and know where and how to start. Which leads me to ask you like so many others, what, who, and where are the best programs for a newbie to start with. What are your suggestions? Thanks in advance for your ideas.
Thanks Ian for an honest review. I have been trying now for about 5 months to make money online. My inbox is full of spam mail from all the “affiliate marketing”, “work from home” and “miracle programmes” that I have joined and after all the time and effort and money put in, I am still not making anything. I was on the page to buy this programme for $1 when I read your review. Is there anything out there that actually does work for a beginner like me without costing a fortune?
Thanks Ian for the Review, I have been trying to make money online for about 5 months now and I keep coming up empty. My inbox is so full of spam mail from all the “programs’ and “affiliate marketing” and “work from home” opportunities I have joined and to date have not made any money even though I have spent quite a bit. Is there anything out there that legitimately makes money without having to spend a fortune? I dont mind putting in the work, as long as I see results.
Hello Ian !
Many thanks for just saving me a lot of money by reviewing Google Sniper 2.0.
Now, have you by any chance tried Sunny D’s Automated Website System? If yes, then how do you evaluate it? Would you recommend it for newbies? Can you please inform me if and when you post a review?
hey great review was wondering if you have any thing you would recommend to a beginner?
i am almost decided to buy this great hype product (google sniper) but when read your review i understand product information in depth and my eyes got opened thank u for your hard work saving peoples money …..lot of crap is going on internet ……plzzzz give me some information about how to earn money on the internet at least 1000 to 2000 dollars monthly genuine programs that u experienced in ur life.
Thanks for looking out for us newbies.
Many Thanks for you post it really helped me soo much, very useful information. Let me tell you one thing whenever you help someone you are attracting help back. Good people will always remember you, keep it up with the hard work. And recommend us what is the best affiliate system out there.
Hey Abd! Thank you for the kind words! I’ve sent you the information you requested via email. Please don’t hesitate to reply back if you have any questions.
Thanks for the honest feedback. Funny…I watched about 5 minutes and as soon as I saw the name, I searched for feedback and found your site.
You’ve saved me a few bucks. But more importantly, you’ve saved me HOURS of wasting my life!
Keep the content flowing. I’m following you!
Thank you for the kind words and feedback Doug! I’m very happy that I could help!
Thanks for the advice
Can you please send me an email where I could research this market properly.
Hello Amr, thanks for reaching out again. I’m sorry but I don’t really understand what you’re requesting. I sent you a pretty lengthy email a little while back with some recommendations to help per your request, but don’t know what you are asking with this comment. Could you please be a bit more specific?
Useful Ian tnx
No problem Joe! Glad I could help!
Thanks for the advice and insight Ian, appreciated. As the old saying says: “Anything that appears to be too good to be true……IS too good to be true”. The pitch whiffs of a hard sell anyway and a pyramid type scheme (Empire Model) was never too far away. These of course being illegal in most Western countries. Its simple, if one wants to make millions, marry into money, make money working hard or take calculated risks in sureties. Thanks again. Mr.B
No problem at all Mr. B! If there’s anything I can help with in the future please don’t hesitate to reach out!
I want to buy the product and I would like an opinion from you if it is worth it or not.I am in dilemma and would like some advice thanks
Chris, if you’re referring to thinking about buying Google Sniper and you didn’t read the review above, that will answer your question as to whether or not it’s worth buying.
Thanks Ian for the great review; helped me dodge this bullet. What’s a good program to use? Appreciate the time you took to put this review out there.
No problem at all Terry! I sent you an email with recommendations per your request and hope you find them helpful. Please let me know if you need anything else!
I bought ” Google Sniper 2.0 ” about a year ago, because of all of the positive reviews and feedback I had heard about this product. At the time I could’nt find any negative reviews about Google Sniper, and if I did see them then I would’nt have bought it. For a product that was to be newbie friendly, I found this to be a down right complicated program. It was also long and drawn out if you ever watched those videos. I did manage to create some great looking WordPress sites, by doing everything he explained step by step. I admit I had some visitors to my sites but I didn’t make one friggin sale, not one. When your trying to rank for keywords, George doesn’t mention that all of the good keywords to put in your domain name is already taken. You could have the best site in the world, but it means nothing if you can’t get loads of traffic to it. There is alot of useful information that George shares here, but I have to agree with Ian, that these are outdated tactics. I wonder how many of these people that purchased this are actually making what they are proclaiming to make. In conclusion I would just like to tell others out there who are thinking about buying Google Sniper 2.0 to don’t waste your time and money. By the way Ian this is a great post you got here, just wish I would have seen it sooner !!!
No problem Paul! Thanks for bringing up all of the great points and contributing your experiences to the community!
Hey Ian, thanks, for this review.
I almost bought this guide, this afternoon. Thanks for saving my ass.
Is there by any chance you could contact me by e-mail. And help me out discover this market. Since I’m a total noob and can’t discover what guide is usefull for me.
No problem Jort! And I just sent an email your way too. Feel free to reply to it and let me know what you needed help with.
Hi Ian , 🙁 Man I think i’m finished after reading this. I bought google sniper and i thought ‘ this is it’ until i read your post. I think you are so right and i feel so hopeless man. Gsniper is so complicated for me because i am beginner. Could you please tell me where can i learn affiliate marketing. I will buy it if you recommend. I need someone to teach me. Thank you so so so much for your post bro. Good day.
Hey Thiha! It was nice connecting with you on WA. Feel free to reach out if you need anything else along the way.
Thank you for the info Ian! Keep posting
No problem Neil! I’m glad I could help!
