In this review I will be taking a look at a product called “Earn Cash Yearly” or “Make Money With Google” or “Make Money With Google And Clickbank”…yeah, these are all the different names for the same product on the same sales page. (I'll be referring to it as “Make Money With Google” from now on.) Also, this product is apparently created by “Jean,” a “successful internet business woman for over seven years.”
If you've been around Kirby's Marketing before, you know that I like to purchase products and test them out before I write reviews on them for the sole purpose of giving as thorough and accurate of a review as possible…however, in some cases, this one included, I can tell simply by the sales page that it will not be worth my time, effort, or money to do so.
Given that I haven't actually purchased this product, I can't say definitively whether or not it is a scam or whether or not it may help you in your search for building a sustainable online business, but I will give you my reasoning as to why I think this is a product you should avoid. I'll first walk through my problems with the sales page, then, based on that, some big problems I have regarding this product.
P.S. If you'd like to check out some legitimate products I'd actually recommend to people, like yourself, who are looking to build a sustainable online business, check out my top recommended resources or head directly over to my #1 Recommendation.

Make Money With Google Sales Page Analysis
Adsense And Clickbank Are Not Unique Secrets
If you've been around internet marketing for even just a little while I can pretty much guarantee you've at least heard of Google Adsense and Clickbank. Google Adsense is THE primary internet advertising platform around and Clickbank is one of the largest and most well-known digital product/affiliate marketing platforms out there.
The fact that she claims she is giving away some super-secret technique based on these two platforms is extremely hard to believe. These are two of the most used and well-known companies/services out there so it's hard to believe there is much that hasn't been figured out or revealed yet.
Can Set Everything Up In A Day And Be Done
She also mentions how it can take just one day to set everything up and be on your way to making thousands of dollars. Later on, she mentions how once set up, you'll pretty much be on autopilot and won't have to do anything except check your statistics daily.
I don't know of any business, online or not, where this is possible…if there really is, I'll be first in line!
Never Trust Clickbank Earning Screenshots
Let me tell you this right now…never trust screenshots of earnings from Clickbank, or any other source, especially if they seem too good to be true. I'll be honest, I've displayed some earnings before on various posts here at Kirby's Marketing as “proof of concept” aids and you can take them at face value. However, it's super easy to fabricate, in fact, if you'd like to learn how just Google it…it took me less than 20 seconds to find a tutorial.
Testimonials Are Hard To Believe
First of all, if everyone who is providing testimonials is of model-level attractiveness AND has professionally photographed portraits AND cannot say anything but gushing love for the program then you are right to be suspicious. This is actually a common technique and can easily be done on sites like Fiverr where you just pay someone five bucks to write a fake review for your product.
We Should Be Honored To Learn From Her
Throughout the sales page, there is a common theme of “Jean” telling us how crazy it is that she is giving us this information and willing to share what she's learned. She's doing this of her own goodwill and we should all be flabbergasted and confused as to why she would perform such a selfless act.
Well, in my opinion, this is likely only a tactic to add emotional value to her sales page. It also allows the writer to get more persuasive content on the page without having to divulge any more information about what the buyer will actually be getting if they purchase the product.
What Do You Actually Get
It's hard to say exactly what you get. From the information on the sales page, you get a 300+ page website complete with your own Adsense code and Clickbank banners installed. That's all I could gather from what was mentioned on the sales page.
If that really is it, I see no way of actually making money with this new website you've just purchased. The biggest problem is that, even with a website with ads, those ads are only valuable to you if there is targeted traffic coming into your site and I really don't think these sites will be worth visiting for many people.
First of all, it is never mentioned what these 300+ page website will actually be about and what kind of content they will have on them…it just baffles me how they think this can be a convincing pitch to anyone with any sort of experience online. Well, then again, this sales page is most likely targeted to those who know absolutely nothing and who are desperate and ready to believe anything telling them they can make money online with no effort on their end.
What I Don't Like About Make Money With Google
Confusing Sales Page
Ok, so if you haven't already gathered from what I've written so far, this sales page is confusing as all get out. It jumps around all over the place and makes it extremely difficult to actually figure out what you will be getting if you purchase the product.
There is just way too much text, highlighted and bolded font, underlines, etc. etc. I thought my mind was going to explode as I read it through.
Misleading Purchase Prices
So, there are two purchase options given at the bottom of the sales page: a “special offer” of a 7-day trial for only $2.95 which gets you one domain and the most popular package of 10 domains for a one-time set-up fee of $185.
It sounds like the 7-day trial would be the best way to go, which is what I was going to do so I could test it out…until I got to the checkout page. It turns out this isn't really a trial, but rather a three payment method where you pay $2.95 up front with your credit/debit card, then your card will be charged $49.50 a week later and the same amount again two weeks after that.
This means the 7-day “Trial” will end up costing you $101.95. To me, this is incredibly deceptive and one of the reasons I really did not want to buy this product and give its creators my money…even for the sake of an in-depth review.
What Are You Actually Going To Do
Even after reading over the sales page a few times, I still had no idea what I would actually get, what I would be doing, or even exactly how it was supposed to be making me money. Yes, she does briefly cover this, but to me, her explanation still didn't make much sense given everything else I know about how internet marketing works.
Makes AdSense Seem Easy
The difficulty of using AdSense effectively and all of the other factors on a website that play into whether or not AdSense will be an effective monetization method is greatly downplayed. In fact, it's made to seem super easy and that idea couldn't be farther from the truth.
Focuses On Clickbank Products
There is a huge emphasis on promoting Clickbank products on these websites…and not even by reviewing them, but simply by having their banners on your site. This is just about the least effective method of promoting any sort of product, especially on sites where the banners aren't necessarily related to the content the viewers would be reading (assuming you would actually have people reading the content on these sites).
On top of this, Clickbank has been steadily losing ground as a reputable source of digital products for a variety of reasons I won't go into detail about here. One of the reasons is that many of the products hosted on their platform are of quite poor quality, Make Money With Google included. Additionally, there is increasing amounts of competition and many of the competitors are out-performing Clickbank in terms of quality products and credibility.
Focusing solely on Clickbank is also an issue because doing so puts all of your eggs into one basket. What happens if Clickbank suddenly closes down and all of your revenue was coming from products hosted on their affilitae platform? Well, you'd be screwed!
Uses Blackhat Techniques To Get Rankings
The writer openly admits to using sketchy, blackhat methods for link building in an effort to get your sites ranked highly in the search engines. This is also an indication that the content isn't worth much in-and-of-itself if it's not able to get ranked on its own.
This is also highly frowned upon by Google and the other search engines and has been cracked down upon in the past. If they catch on to this technique and decide to punish it, you'll be absolutely screwed and have no hope of recovering any of the traffic and respective income you may have been getting from this illegitimate traffic in the first place.
Poor Quality Sites
The websites you will be given are of very poor quality and completely littered with ads. How do I know this? Because they give an example of a site on the very sales page. The site is here: http://1expert-clicks-home.info/
Just looking at this site for a few seconds and I can tell you a few things that are not good about it.
- The domain name is horrible, completely inconvenient, impossible to remember, and difficult to type.
- The content is poorly formatted. There are large blocks of texts with no headers, images, or other common, and easy to implement formatting techniques.
- Way too many, completely unrelated advertisements. This is self-explanatory. Why would you want a banner ad for getting your ex back on a post about free web hosting? It just doesn't make any sense.
- All of the content is completely plagiarized. I ran it through two plagiarism scanners and they both indicated it was completely plagiarized and even included links to the sites that had the exact same content on them. This is a guarantee you will never be ranked in the search engines, especially Google. Google hates plagiarism and will never send traffic to it once it figures it out.
3000+ Pages For $195
If you seriously think you can expect any sort of quality on over 3,000 pages of content for merely $185 (assuming you purchase the larger package) you are sorely mistaken! To get 3,000 pages of high-quality content will likely cost you at least $50/page… for a grand total of $150,000 or mroe. So, to think you will be getting anything of value for $185 is completely irrational.
Conclusion + Better Alternative
Ok…so this was not my normal review format, but because I had such big issues with this product from the sales page alone, I hope you can understand. If you are still interested in this product, I really must tell you that you're likely in for trouble once you realize it's not all its cracked up to be.
I'm so convinced of this that I'm not even going to link to Make Money With Google in any way shape or form.
If you're really truly looking for a way to build an income online, it is going to take a lot of work, education, and time. It can't be done in a day and can't be set on autopilot. You need to understinad that!
What's my alternative? Well, I'm going to suggest you check out the place where I learned how to build my own sustainable and profitable online business, Wealthy Affiliate University. This is a very large and diverse community chalk full of training material, lessons, and thousands of like-minded individuals who are all working to build their own online businesses the right way.

It does have a Premium Membership option, but there is no pressure to join at that level, which is nice.
