Google Sniper X Review
Google Sniper has been on the market for several years now and George Brown has updated the Version to the latest Google Sniper 3.0 in end 2014. Google Sniper consists of 2 courses, the basic Google Sniper Course, and the intermediate Google Sniper X course.
In this review, I am going to share with you the overview of the 2 courses in this Google Sniper X Review.
If you do a Google search on “Google Sniper Review” you can see many review pages on this product. There are many who called it a scam product while there are also many on the other side of the fence claiming the product, is legitimate.
I too became curious and want to see what George Brown is offering and whether his tools can really help people make decent money online, even to as much as he claimed in the pitching Video.
I invested USD1 in the 5 days trial to review the content and I am going to share with you what I have learnt objectively. I am not going to scream to tell you that it is a scam nor I will sweet-talk you to get the product. You shall make your own judgement to see whether this product is suitable for you.
I learn about Online Internet Marketing at Wealthy Affiliate University and therefore, I can relate to what was taught by George Brown in his product.
Google Sniper X Review – Welcome to Google Sniper
Right at the beginning of the program, George Brown has a welcome video to briefly talks about the system and the navigation of the product site.
Near the end of the video, he also emphasises that the newcomer who just joined the system should jump straight to his Sniper Cash Machine to “get off the ground and earn some money fast” and “Quick boost to earn the first USD100 dollars”
So what is this Sniper Cash Machine?
Google Sniper X Review – Sniper Cash Machine
Right before you can understand what is online business and marketing, or even what is Google Sniper, George Brown wants to let you earn some quick money through this Sniper Cash Machine program.
This program is simply helping him market Google Sniper using your Facebook Friends list. He will teach you step by step how to set up a Clickbank account and then provide you a pre-created post template and e-mail templates so that you can cut and paste on your Facebook post or emails.
With your affiliate links attached to the post, he is hoping if any of your friends or family will click the link and buy the Google Sniper products and then you’ll get some commission from it too. (60% of everything they buy!)
I would say that this is a clever way of him tapping into your contacts FOC without paying FB advertising fee. (In fact, you are paying him a fee for this.)
Hey, George! I do not know what are the contents of your Google Sniper at this point of time yet, don’t I?
If you do not mind earning money from your friends or family using this technique, or the possibility of some friends un-friending you (cross your fingers), you may make one or two sales from your friend list and earn your first 100’s USD as promised by the crafty George Brown.
Google Sniper X Review – Google Sniper Course
Let’s move on to the main course. Google Sniper Course is the basic course set out to help a Novice from knowing what niche they want to go into and to building a website based on the keywords that meet the sniper criteria.
In the main course, he provided a pdf copy of the Google Sniper Master Manual and a process map for you to follow his training.
The Google Sniper Master Manual is the supporting document for the Seven Video Modules. I would suggest read through the manual first and when prompt to see the specific Video mentioned in the manual, then go to that video to view it.
The Google Sniper Master Manual will be informative for a Novice Affiliate Marketer.
I really think that what was taught in this main course, in the beginning, is really basic and most of the information can be easily found on the Internet for FREE!
The things that we can credit to George Brown are:
- How did get his site ranked and gain authority using his techniques?
- How he do pre-selling, which is basically how to engage a visitor to your website.
Google Sniper X Review – Brief Outline of the Videos in the Google Sniper Course.
VIDEO #1: How to Choose What Niche to
Go into and a Winning Product
In #1 video, George will share with you,
- The basic principles of how to make money online.
- How to pick what market/niche for you to go into
- How to pick a winning product (from Clickbank) so that your first Google Sniper campaign is a winner!
George focuses on choosing an affiliate product from Clickbank in this Video series. He did mention that he does use other affiliate products in this course.
VIDEO #2: Finding Keywords That Meet The Sniper Criteria
In #2 video, George will share with you,
- How to find profitable keywords that meet the “sniping” criteria.
- He will walk you through how to use Google new keyword tool, “Google Keyword Planner” to find these keywords using a real case study.
Although Google Keyword Planner is a FREE tool to use, there is a learning curve to use it effectively. There are many tools out there which simplify the Keyword Research Process that can save you tons of time. So that you can focus on creating valuable contents for your visitors.
VIDEO #3: Creating The Foundations of Your Sniper Site
In #3 video, George will share with you,
- How to set up your WordPress blog which is the first technical step in
making your sniper site live.
- How and what you need to do within your hosting account to set up your WordPress blog and what basic plugins you will need to install.
This video is a little outdated because creating a WordPress website is really simple nowadays. Especially if you host your website with a WordPress specialised host.
VIDEO #4: Secrets of a 20% Conversion Rate
(How To Make More Money By Preselling)
In #4 video, George will share with you,
- The importance of “Pre-Selling”.
- Elements that affect how well you pre-sell.
This is an interesting topic and Video I would recommend a Novice marketer learn and watch. It is pretty useful.
VIDEO #5: The Fastest Way To Cloak Affiliate Links
In #5 video, George will share with you,
- Learn why and how he cloaks his affiliate links.
He recommends the use of Pretty Link plugin to manage your affiliate links on your website.
The plugin is powerful in it ability to control all your affiliate links at a centralise location. Furthermore, it makes your affiliate links look very pleasant to the visitors and most importantly even to the search engines too.
You can also track how many hits on your affiliate links.
However, this video is of poor quality and you can hear someone speaking in the background in the middle of the video! Annoying!
VIDEO #6: How To Create Your Site (Technical Stuff)
In #6 video, George will share with you,
- How to create your actual Sniper site.
- All the technical aspects will be covered ranging from writing/publishing your posts, adding pictures, and editing personalized widgets.
Again, this information is available free online.
VIDEO #7: How To Get Ranked And
Gain Authority in Record Time
In #7 video, George will share with you,
- Several techniques he uses personally to get ranked and gain authority in record time.
- He will walk you through how to ping your websites so Google notices your sniper site immediately.
- Other techniques such as social bookmarking or social media sites which boost your ranking and authority time.
This video is again of poor quality. Refer to the Master Manual. It is easier to understand from the text in the manual.
Google Sniper X Review – Stage 2: The Bullet Proof Module
Due to Google introduced the new search algorithm code name “Penguin” and “Panda”, the fundamental of Google Sniper System cannot work anymore. This is because Google will filter out websites that target a specific keyword and deemed it a “sniper” site that is not relevant to the user.
George did his homework and added this new e-book to address the fundamental problems of the original Google Sniper system.
This is additional training which is complimentary of the original system and will re-work some of the fundamentals, along with reinforcing some of the material found within the members’ portal Sniper X. – George Brown
After reading this e-book I can see the shift in George’s focus towards,
- Creating a sniper site that has valuable contents
- Using a variance of keywords rather than just one sniper keywords
- Proper way of getting backlinks
This e-book is quite informative for a novice and I applaud George for taking a step back to recognise his Google Sniper System’s problems and rectify it.
Google Sniper X Review – Empire Module
This is also a new addition to the original Google Sniper System where George will share with you how to outsource your content writing to other people so that you can grow your single Google Sniper site into a full-time income,
and a potential income ‘empire’ by getting others to do the work for you.
There are 6 videos under this module. I think these videos are more suitable for intermediate to advance Online Marketer who already knows what they are doing and what they want to achieve by paying others to do the job.
For a novice, it is good for information first. Focus on building your website and learn the fundamentals first.
Google Sniper X Review – Additional Google Sniper Training
In this section, George Brown introduces some advanced topics which include the following,
- Backlinks and boosting your sniper sites ranking FAST
- Advanced Keyword Research
There are total 8 training videos and 2 Webinar videos in this section.

I particularly like the #1 Video on Preselling where George shares the importance of preselling and how to engage your visitors and lead them to buy your product.
It is a good video for the Novice Online Marketer.

Pros of Google Sniper X
- Simple instructions for Novice to follow
- Informative Videos on some important online marketing tips
- Updated to address ineffectiveness of old Google Sniper system.
Cons of Google Sniper X
- Confusing pricing. Members who opt for 1 dollar 5 days trial are penalised for USD20 more per month! Members who opt for buy USD47 product straight away only pays for USD47 per month, while trial users have to pay USD67 per month after trial ends. Logical?
- Poor support from Google Sniper Team.
- No community presences.
- Some videos are of poor quality. Low resolution, background voices and black screen to name a few.
Google Sniper X Review – Is there a better sniper out there?
Google Sniper 3.0 has been updated to teach the more authentic ways of building and Online Business, the information could be useful to a Novice online Marketer. However, the support from the Google Sniper Team or Community is minimum.
I was too a novice when I started out with my first Online Business. I needed encouragements and support from good friends when I face a stumbling block. I needed a place to ask questions and get feedback.
Wealthy Affiliate University is definitely endorsed by more than 280,000 Novice to Expert Online marketers who had attended the training there.
Google Sniper X Review – Final Verdict
Google Sniper X
Owners: George Brown
An e-book that is more focus on teaching novice Internet marketer how to set up a Website with specific targeted keywords. Some of the techniques he taught in Google Sniper 1.0 and Google Sniper 2.0 is outdated, though.
Kudos to George that he has made the effort to update Google Sniper 3.0 with the most authentic ways of building and Online Business. He now emphasises on valuable contents to visitors, variation of Keywords and getting back links.
Although, I do not like the way George tries to tap into our contacts in Facebook, some flaws in the video presentations, and how he charges his members illogically.
I rated this product 3 stars because the authentic aspect of setting up an online business is taught and some topics he shared could be useful to a Novice.
And Yes, you could make up to the amount claimed by George if you apply what you learn diligently. You are not going to earn the claimed amount overnight.
As you can see from my review here, there are so many things to learn. You are going to require hard work, patience, and perseverance to see the first dollar of your online business!
Wishing you the best!
