Overall Review Rating: (2 / 5)
Who is George Montagu Brown?
George Brown came on the Internet Marketing scene way back in July of 2010 with the release of IM Elite a traffic generation product. He says that he’s already an internet millionaire. I suspect that with the climate online back in 2010, he was probably raking in the dough from wannabe entrepreneurs by the fistful. Internet Marketing was new to the scene and hadn’t become clogged with scammers. George got a head start on scamming the masses.
From IM Elite, he moved on to the well known Google Sniper product line. Version 2.0 was a reboot of the original and finally in 2014 he rebooted once again with version 3.0. This is a well know scammer technique.
Freshen up a product and have a new launch.
Convince people that this is a fresh new look at the process when in fact it is just a little bit of additional content. All the money is made from the launch and JV promoters anyway. It doesn’t matter if the product is junk, most people that are suckered into a product of this kind won’t ask for a refund or won’t ask in time to get it.
Initially, the Google Sniper product was a good product done at a time when the process worked. With the reboot of Google Sniper 2.0 and now Google Sniper 3.0 the techniques have been obsoleted due to changes in Google’s algorithms. Now he’s promoting a dinosaur. His product has failed to make the adjustments needed to be effective.
Next came a product called Predator, a bot that scraped Craigslist for emails. Then spamming the emails with products. This was clearly a violation of the CanSpam act. He also sold this product for $800 pretty hard for most of his followers to come up with that amount of scratch. The repercussions were immediate and very vocal. His launch failed miserably and his name was mud.
The most recent iteration of George trying to get back into the good graces of his followers and earn a few more bucks from people that still think he’s worth following was released in July of 2016. This product was called Profit Master. The launch was heavily promoted as a live video webinar. It was not, it was recorded. There were technical difficulties and went offline somewhere around the 9-minute mark. The price for this? Yup, he upped the ante yet again. This one is priced at just shy of $1500.00.
Worst of all, George is starting to sound like a one-trick pony. The product consists of 1. Find a Niche, 2. Build a list for the product, 3. Find some Clickbank products in the niche, 4. Earn affiliate income. Not even close to being worth $1500.00 much less $15.00. So, George Brown is floundering. A young upstart with delusions of grandeur and an outdated product line.
Who is Google Sniper 3.0 created for?
Google Sniper 3.0 is created for beginning marketers that want a shortcut to wealth. Sniper is focused on creating small focused niche sites that supposedly can rank quickly and bring in several hundred dollars a month each.
This is an outdated concept. If and when you get them to rank, you will need to do more than what is outlined in this training. The small niche sites have a huge amount of competition and you will need to learn much more about Search Engine Optimization and how to rank a site these days than is taught by George Brown. These techniques are outdated and downright bad for business today.
What is the Google Sniper 3.0 Product About?
The Google Sniper 3.0 product is all about creating small tightly focused niche sites. Your entire site is focused on one small segment of the larger market. Once a site is created, you target the niche that is your focus by selecting long-tailed keywords that you can get to rank in Google. You earn income by linking to affiliate offers on Clickbank.
On the surface this process does work. The problem is that Google Sniper 3.0 only scratches the surface. With all of the changes to the Google Algorithm in the last few years, the process outlined by Google Sniper 3 doesn’t go far enough. Long-tailed keywords are just the start of a good site these days. You need to understand the nuances of the Google Algorithm and implement Search Engine Optimization strategies or your site will never rank above the 5th page of Google.
There is an old adage. “Where do you hide a dead body?… On the second page of Google”. A site that never gets past page 5 might as well not even exist at all.
Why Would I Say Google Sniper 3.0 is a Scam?
The first indication that Google Sniper 3.0 is a scam is that this is a rehashed version of a previous product. While there is some new content, this is essentially Google Sniper 2.0 re-released. Much of the content is the same, there are even references to Google Sniper 2.0 in the training. Not only is it old, dated content, there was very little attention paid to detail when the product was updated.
The way that this product is released is my other reason for calling this a scam. A huge promotion was put together in JVZoo that signed up other marketers to promote the product. This allowed George to capitalize on his reputation and offered the joint venture marketers a commission to promote his product. While this is often done to get a product visible, it is one technique that scammers use to lure in unsuspecting newbies.
On top of the JV promotion, there are also upsells when you are actually trying to purchase Google Sniper 3.0. You are offered an upgrade to Sniper X. A small checkbox, that is already checked, will automatically sign you up for a recurring $47/month payment to this community unless you uncheck the tiny blue box.
You will also be offered an upgrade to the Elite Membership which will add $187 to your bill.
When you decline this, you are offered a “Copy Me” case studies for $97. This is a PLR package. PLR stands for private label rights and is a full walkthrough set of examples. You are told to build a site using this content. The problem with this is that unless you have unique content Google will never let this rank. Duplicate content is penalized by Google.

Google Sniper 3.0 Cons

Google Sniper 3.0 Support
There is only one way to get support for Google Sniper 3.0. Send an email and wait. There is also a disclaimer that says you must have completed the course and have specific questions to get answers. This indicates he really won’t support newbie questions and that the training itself is your only means of support. If you are new to internet marketing you will be horribly frustrated.
Google Sniper 3.0 Verdict
I’m sorry to say that I can’t recommend this product. The deceptive sales page and outdated techniques make this a product that will not perform as advertised.
