My One Year Experience With Human Proof Designs

, , 20 Comments

In this article I will share my experience with a company named Human Proof Designs.

What Is Human Proof Designs?

Human Proof Designs [Affiliate Link] was founded by Dominic Wells, a Wealthy Affiliate member. This is a company that sells ready-made niche websites. Those sites are designed to make money from the start through affiliate marketing: visitors are redirected to a merchant site (most of the time it’s Amazon), and when they buy a product, the affiliate earns a commission.

But what sets HPD apart from other similar services is that each site they make is completely unique. It’s not just “turn-key sites” that often look the same and have all the same content. The design is unique, but also the articles, which are written by a team of professional writers.

Buying A Site From Human Proof Designs

You can pick a pre-made site or tell them to build a site from scratch on any topic you choose.

Let’s say you choose a pre-made site. First, you will look at their catalog of sites and choose one:

Human Proof Designs - List Of Pre-Made Sites
Human Proof Designs – List Of Pre-Made Sites

You can also subscribe to their “Early-Bird Notification List” to be notified when new sites are ready for purchase.

With each site comes a brief explanation of what the site is all about, how it is monetized (most of the time it is through Amazon) and why they choose that specific niche.

They also show a calculation of what kind of income you can expect for that site. This income is based on the amount of traffic the chosen keywords can bring, by evaluating the average position of the site on the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages).

As you can see, only one site can earn you a living. But they also say that this income is the maximum income you can expect (so expect to do less, especially if you’re a newbie) and that it will take one full year to reach that level.

What Exactly Do You Get When You Buy A Site From Human Proof Designs?

There are 2 types of sites you can choose from:

Human Proof Designs - Sites Packages
Human Proof Designs – Sites Packages

The Starter package has all you need to start earning some money. The Premium package provides you with 2X more content, a logo and social media accounts. They set up the site for you, and then they show you what to do after your site is online.

To summarize:

  • They do all the keywords researches
  • They write original and high quality articles
  • They design the site with a Premium WordPress theme
  • They search the best domain names and let you choose the one that suits you best
  • They make a logo (Premium package)
  • They set up social media accounts (Premium package)
  • They provide you with a complete training and tell you what to do once your site is online
  • They offer a support through email and a private Facebook group

Other Services From Human Proof Designs

Keyword Packs

Keyword packs are designed to build a niche site from scratch. They search hundreds of keywords and the best Amazon products for these keywords. Here is exactly what is included in a keyword pack:

Articles Packs

Human Proof Designs has a team of writers that can produce ready to use articles for any niche. Two packs are available:

You can view examples of articles by looking here and here.

Aged Sites

Human Proof Designs also sells sites that are online for at least 6 months. They already have traffic, so in theory they already earn money. The main benefit of buying an aged site is to bypass the “Google Sandbox” (the period when the site is not ranking well and so has almost zero traffic). The sandbox lasts generally from 3 to 6 months. You just have to build them some authority.

As these sites are ready immediately, they cost a lot more: $1497 for one site.

The good thing is that you can view the sites, as they are already online. You can view 3 examples here: Storing ToysGuitar Amp GuruLove Snorkeling

My Experience With Human Proof Designs

I decided to buy a site from Human Proof Designs. I will update this section regularly to show my experience with HPD and the results I’ve obtained.

01/22/2017: Buying the site

I’ve done it! I just bought my site. I took the Premium option. After some Paypal issues (I wasn’t redirected to Paypal after submitting the form), I contacted Dom who promptly responded to send directly the money via Paypal.

01/23/2017

Received a mail from Brad saying I should be contacted in the next 24 hours to begin sorting out the domain name and the hosting.

01/24/2017

Received a mail from Kamran telling me they are working on the content. It should be completed under 4 weeks. Tell me to choose a domain name (22 propositions).

01/25/2017

Received a mail from Kamran: domain name registered. He also gave me instructions on how to install WordPress (I can choose to do it myself or they set up everything for me). I choose to install WordPress myself.

01/27/2017

I created an account on Namecheap to register the domain name (it can be moved later on to the register I choose).

03/01/2017

My site is ready! It took them 5 weeks to make the site, so a little longer than expected, but it’s fine.

03/17/2017

All social media accounts have been configured. The site is ready to rock!

03/26/2017

Got my first organic visit from Google! Also had my first keyword indexed in Google’s top 100 at rank 97.

04/06/2017

Started link building with Rank Guardian (bought the Results package).

05/17/2017

I have now 4 keywords ranking in the search engines. The higher one is in 59th position.

05/24/2017

Ordered a Hoth Blitz 10 Package from The Hoth.

06/15/2017

8 keywords are in Google’s Top 100.

08/29/2017

I haven’t worked much on the site these past two months though I started building some backlinks. I now have 15 keywords in Google’s Top 100 (Highest position: 36) and 9 backlinks. The site receives 1-3 visitors a day. The DA (Domain Authority) of the site is 18.

09/06/2017

I’ve filled Easy Azon with my Amazon Associates ID. As the website is slowly receiving some traffic, I hope to make a few sales!

09/13/2017

The site has 73 keywords in Google’s Top 100. The highest position is #8. The site has 49 backlinks and 17 referring domains.

10/18/2017

The site has 97 keywords in Google’s Top 100. The highest position is #13. The site has 129 backlinks and 39 referring domains. I start to comment more on other people’s blogs (Yes, I know I should have started doing this sooner!).

10/30/2017

I just ordered a press release from Human Proof Designs. You can find more informations on their presse release service here: Press release. It should be live in about a week.

11/03/2017

The press release has been published on 472 news sites (newspapers, industry news, financial news, regional and local news sites), including Google News. This resulted in 206 clicks on the site, and 11 clicks on my affiliate links, but no sale.

11/10/2017

I added one new post to the site.

11/16/2017

I added one new post.

11/19/2017

I created an Hootsuite account to automatically post to my Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts. I add posts on a regular basis (about 1-2 per week).

11/20/2017

I finally made my first sales! Someone ordered 8 items from my link. But what is funny is that none of the items are products I promote on the site. Thanks, Amazon cookie!

12/10/2017

The site is really starting to take off, now that I add new posts regularly. 304 keywords are in Google’s Top 100 and the site has 110 backlinks (73 referring domains). Traffic is about 25 visitors per day. My domain rating in Ahrefs is 47 and my Url rating is 25.

    This sounds really neat, I haven’t heard of this before, its a great idea. So you buy the site and make a profit, but what kind of work do you have to put into it? Advertising on social media I guess. Do you write your own content or buy that as well?

      You have nothing to do on the site, everything is created for you. Your job begins afterwards: you still have to promote your site and build links to it. But HPD guides you through the whole process, they tell you what to do and when to do it.

    Hey, thx for your great review. I have never heard about something like that. It just sounds too good to be true. I am very excited about your experiences. But how does it work? How can they create a website that fast and get so much traffic on it in just 4 weeks?

      They build the site in 4 weeks, but it takes time to bring traffic to it, from 3 to 6 months. The full potential of the site is reached within 1 year. What is interesting with HPD is that everything is set up to bring traffic, from design to content creation. I’m still at the beginning of my experience, but I really look forward to seeing my site (and my income) grow during the next 12 months!

    I’ve heard about Dominic Wells and his company Human Proof Designs and I have to admit it does look rather appealing as they do all hard work for you in giving you a website that is already to go.

    I imagine that you are going to get ongoing support after you have got the website, so in theory it should make it a lot easier to succeed if I’m not correct.

    I have bookmarked your site so I can see how your progress is going and I wish you all the best with it, thanks for your post.

      The site is going well, though I haven’t much worked on it these 2 past months. I started to receive some traffic, about 1-2 visit a day, and I have 15 keywords in Google Top 100. I will publish a more detailed update soon. Thanks for your comment!

    I also purchased a Niche Site Starter Package today, I’ll keep track of all the steps. 1-2 visits are kind of low. Hopefully, I can get a better result in 6 months.

      I haven’t worked much on my site these past 3 months, that’s why I have not much traffic I think. My goal is to boost the site’s traffic by creating quality backlinks and guest posting. I hope you will succeed with your HPD site, keep me informed!

    I’m also considering to purchase a site from them. Have you made any income for the past 7 months since the site was up? Thanks for sharing.

      No income yet, but I see that the traffic is slowly coming in, so I hope to make my first commission soon… I think their sites are worth the price though, they are very well designed and the niche and keywords are very cleverly chosen. Don’t hesitate to tell me if you buy one, good luck!

      I think you should work on your site at least 1 hour a day to start seeing some results. Link building is a process that takes time! Good luck!

    Well done, I`m sure you made a wise decision buying a site from HPD, after struggling to make sales with sites I built in the past, I ordered a site from HPD, my site is almost same age with yours(bought mine in February 2017)
    HPD did a brilliant job,unfortunately EasyAzon did not work for me, it made my site freeze all the time so I removed it.
    For the first time, I`m making sales online since Dom built me the site, having said that, I still have to put in the work.Would I advice anyone to buy a site from HPD? absolutely, a wise decision I made in a long time.

      Yes, I know now that HPD sites work! My only regret is to not have put more work into the site earlier, but now that I’ve understand that, I know I’m on the right track! Good luck with your site and keep me informed of your successes!
