If you prefer watching videos to reading written reviews, here is a great video review by a well respected and experienced internet marketer I know called Jay:
Okay, with that done, let’s get on with my written review…

What the Google Sniper website claims
At the top of the page is this dramatic heading:
- The “hurry, last few spots remaining” line – why are there only a few spots remaining? If so, why is he desperate to get you to sign up? This is a bit of a contradiction because if the limited spots are going quickly, why is he so keen to get you to join? Surely there would be enough people signing up anyway.
- Earn up to $2,556.80 a day? – this figure is very high, especially considering he says the methods he is going to teach you are completely free.
Anyway, so there is a video with George talking about his earnings:
The problem I have when someone like this shows me screenshots of their earnings is this:
- Those high earnings are probably not earned from the methods he teaches in Google Sniper, but from people signing up to Google Sniper.
You see, this is what you must get your head round if you are thinking of paying for any kind of “make money online” training. Whenever they claim how much money they earn, you can be almost certain that most of that money comes from convincing people like you to pay them to show you how to earn money, NOT from the methods they are going to teach you.
Here’s how it works:
- George has a technique for earning money online.
- He sells a guide showing how to do the technique.
- He earns lots of money from selling his guide.
- He shows you proof of his earnings from selling the guide, NOT from using the technique he teaches in the guide.
By the way, Internet Jetset Review has a very similar sales video.
My Experience with Google Sniper
I actually signed up with the original version of Google Sniper a few years ago. Although I have not used the latest version, from what I can see from George’s video, and from what others have said, the core of the system is essentially the same.
So what is the main Google Sniper method?
George teaches you how to set up lots of little niche websites, based on really low competition keywords. These are tiny websites that you just quickly set up and then forget about them. This is the complete opposite of the type of websites that Google likes.
Did I have any success with Google Sniper?
No. I set up a few websites using his method, but I didn’t really have any success with them. It was the original version, but I wouldn’t sign up to the latest version because people say that it’s essential the same training but with a few extra add-ons and up-sells.
Also, George tells a big lie in his video:
- The Google Sniper technique is not completely free to implement because you still have to pay for domains and hosting. Plus there are going to be extra things that he suggests you pay to use, such as backlinking tools. So, when you consider the question, is Google Sniper a scam, you have to realise that this guy lies about the cost of his techniques.
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
Even if I hadn’t tried Google Sniper before, it would still set my scam alarm bells ringing. Why? Because there are some obvious signs that you learn to spot once you have seen them a bunch of times. For more information about this, read my article:
Alternatively, you can follow along with me as I assess Google Sniper against these key criteria…
What factors would indicate that it is genuine?
- Does it sound realistic? – No, not at all. $2,556.80 per day just from quickly setting up a bunch of tiny websites based on low competition keywords? You’re living in fantasy land!
- Does he admit it requires work? – Not really. He says these websites are really quick to set up. I don’t think it’s possible to earn that kind of money without putting in a lot of work.
- Does he sound genuine? – Unfortunately, yes, but I think this is because George Brown is good at doing these sales videos.
- Can you take a look inside? – No. Although he gives you screenshots of his earnings, he doesn’t show you what the system will look like once you buy it.
- Is there a free trial? – No. You are going to have to pay the money if you want to try it.
Positive signs score: 24%
What factors would indicate that it is a scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – Yes, it really does. He makes it sound far too easy to earn so much money online. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy.
- Does he say you’ll get rich quickly? – Sort of. Although he does issue a disclaimer saying he can’t promise how much you will earn, he does heavily suggest that you will make a lot of money once you have quickly set these little websites up.
- Is he secretive about how the money is made? – Yes. He doesn’t actually tell you what the method involves or what the training is. He just skirts around the topic, making it sound better than it actually is.
- Does he claim it’s never been seen before? – Sort of. He does imply that it’s unlike other things you might have seen.
- Does the video seem fake? – I can tell you that it is really George in the video, and he does come across as genuine. That doesn’t necessarily mean that what he is saying is true, though.
- Does he claim it doesn’t require work? – Sort of. Although he doesn’t claim that all you need to do is just click a few buttons and you’re off, he does make it sound easier than it actually is to earn a lot of money online.
Negative signs score: 63%
What are other people saying about Google Sniper?
Is Google Sniper a Scam?
So, as you saw, I assessed Google Sniper’s sales page based on positive and negative signs, then came up with a score for each. I also have previous experience of using the original version of Google Sniper. So, when combining all this with the fact that other people consider it to be a scam, here is the overall score for Google Sniper:
85% chance of being a scam
Is There an Alternative?
Instead of chasing after “shiny objects” like this that promise you will make money quickly and easily but rarely live up to that promise, why don’t you build a great website that earns you money? If you are new to making money online, I can guide you through the process. CLICK HERE to get started
