I really, really wanted to like Madsense Reborn, not only because it’s about time we had a new Adsense course to go at, but I also like Abdullah, the guy who takes the training…he’s a trier.
But, I was left disappointed, not on the idea and theory, but on the presentation and lack of proof.
If Abdullah had spent more time explaining his methods, he would probably have had a decent course on his hands.
Also be aware that Madsense Reborn has just been re-branded from the course he produced almost a year ago, Sixth Sense Secrets. This could have been his chance to really improve its quality but it’s just the exact same course, as was, back in March 2016.
Onto the course and it’s aimed at newbies to Google Adsense, and presumably, for a newbie to Facebook ads also.
Find out why I found the hyped up claims to be very questionable and what my overall opinion was in my detailed, probably too long, Madsense Reborn Review below.

Madsense Reborn Review 2016/17
First, what do you get for your $27?
You get 5 main modules with a handful of bonuses in the members area. The modules are divided into 24 videos, mostly showing set ups and ‘inside’ views of Abdullah Ashraf’s Facebook and Adsense accounts.
Module 1 Setting Up (9 videos)
Off we go. This first module involves finding and setting up a domain name, your hosting account, installing WordPress, buying the recommended WP theme ($59), setting that up, then onto setting up a Facebook Page to use with your website and, finally, setting up your websites home page.
The theme used is the Newspaper Theme which I must admit is a terrific theme and totally customizable. Although Abdullah shows you the basic set up, it doesn’t deter from the fact that it is quite a confusing theme to work with, especially if you’re a newbie. It will also set you back $59.
The theme is worth the money though, but it’s a bit pricey, especially when the sales blurb for Madsense Reborn implies you only need $5 to start up?
The module then goes on to show how you set up the secret file you must upload via an FTP client. Again, not very newbie friendly. Besides that, the actual file is of no great shakes and I don’t really see the need for it?
The 10 videos in module one, have a rushed feeling about them. I know the website is only going to be used for Adsense ads, and for trending content, but a little more time could have been spent on a more detailed explanation or, better still, a slower walkthrough. Remember, this is supposed to be aimed at newbies.
I’ve installed websites for years so I can understand the lingo, but for someone new, I can see them pausing the video time and time again…especially with the logo production where he uses Photoshop. Setting up the Homepage of the theme is also a bit rushed. It’s all here, but could have been done better.
Finding Content That Goes Viral
Module 2 Content (3 videos)
Content research, uploading it and rewriting it.
Remember the Madsense Reborn blurb about only needing 5 bucks? Well, if you were to play along with this strategy, you may need Buzz Sumo ($99 per month) to find the needed content. They say it isn’t necessary, but I can see it would make this job easier in the long run.
Abdullah suggests you copy and paste the viral content you find in Buzz Sumo straight onto your own site. He does touch on leaving a credit, but doesn’t push the idea. He also recommends you rewrite it IF it goes viral.
I’m not letting the cat out of the bag here, you still have to see what sort of content he recommends you lift for viral attention, and he does explain this bit well. I’m not giving the Madsense Reborn ‘secrets’ away, that would be unethical.
I would suggest that using content is fine IF you credit the source, rewriting would be better. But, here’s a big no-no. He uses images straight from Google search and that’s not a good idea.
There are copyrights attached to most images on the web, so I don’t understand why they didn’t suggest using Pixabay images where no attribution is needed. If you’re going to mess with Google and their Adsesne program, it’s best not to steal other people’s images.
Messing With The Big Guns?
It’s unlikely you will ever be caught, but why take the risk? Say you’ve made this strategy work and you have a few grand sitting in your Adsense account…but then one day, your account is shut down on violation terms.
Google Adsesne can be a fickle beast and you shouldn’t poke it with a stick…rather, pet it like a treasured pet, especially if you have moolah at risk!
Abdullah does later say in a sort of disclaimer that you should just steal all your content to begin with and if it becomes profitable, then get it rewritten. Later on, he goes on to say he honestly believes you should produce your own content from the start. Go figure?
I’m not letting any cats out of the bag here, you still have to know what type of content to look for and where to put it and he does go into detail of how you search for that possible viral content.
Module 3 Adsense (5 videos)
This module goes through setting up your account with Google Adsense…although he just tells you to get on with it and apply for an account without showing examples.
Yes, it’s very easy to do but some newbies out there who’ve bought Madesene Reborn may not have applied for anything else online! He then goes into how to insert ad codes on your website and gives a walkthrough of his Adsense account, pointing out what the stats mean…some of this is wrong and he’s quite vague about it too.
We then see where to place the ads on the site. Quite important. Moving on, he shows how to set up a way to track each page of your site (for visitors and other stats) within your Adsense control centre. This is useful to know and something, I admit, I didn’t know beforehand. So I learned something!
What About Madsense Reborn Traffic?
Module 4 Facebook Ads (7 videos)
The first video is about setting up a Business Facebook account. I’ve never done this before and it’s all new to me. I would have appreciated a run through but again, no example given. He says its easy, but I’d like an example nevertheless. Then he goes through what you can and cannot do with Facebook ads, such as Advertising Criteria.
This part is very detailed and he does a good job of explaining the do’s and don’ts of running Facebook ads.
Moving through the video, he shows where to find topics of differing genres to target people on FB using such websites such as Buzz Sumo. This turns out to be some useful information about targeting FB groups.
Abdullah then explains how to decipher whether there is an actual audience for the content he finds. He uses the Facebook Business Power Editor to do this and it’s clear he hasn’t used the platform for a while and struggles to get to grips with its new interface.
Finally, he switches back to the older version. Hey, we’ve all been there when a platform changes, but if you’re in it every day, you should be aware it’s actually happening soon!
After going through a theoretical Facebook ad campaign, he adds images to the ads. He uses Photoshop to enhance his images and suggest you do the same.
Bit Of A Leaning Curve Needed
Next, we go through another walkthrough area of the FB power editor which totally confused me! Slow down Abdullah..explain what you’re actually doing!
He suggests that you ask his FB members group to answer the many queries you will have. Why not just explain it better in the video?
The last video in this module does actually go through a test campaign. He freely admits it might get a bit confusing….. and then says it’s simple. If you’ve bought this course and have got this far, I can see the pause button going into hyperdrive! Also, he could have picked a more cheerful subject for his test campaign too!
This was quite an interesting module in this Madsense Reborn course but should have been done with more care and with easier explanations.
This final video in the module was just under 20 minutes long, but to explain the content in detail would have taken more than hour. Abdullah goes at 100mph and freely admits it!
Now It Gets Confusing!
Module 5 Optimising & Scaling (5 videos)
Through these last 5 videos, he explains optimizing Age, Countries, Gender and Ad breakdowns of the Facebook ad strategy and, finally, in the last video, of scaling it all up. Be warned though, at the start of this module he says it might start to get a bit confusing! Wait…What!
And it is!
No wonder he keeps mentioning the need to go to the Facebook group for more help…you’ll need it!
There’s a lot of detail at speed in this module, the pause button will be in meltdown! It’s interesting stuff, but nothing really is learned.
That’s the general gist of what’s inside the Madsense Reborn Course.
What Are The Madsense Reborn Upsells?
The OTO’s are a DFY campaign costing $67 which includes case studies. The next OTO is a way to flip your Adsense sites for profit costing $47 and, finally, you can buy the Madsense Reborn complete funnel for $127 to sell as your own…which makes me suspicious. This is usually offered when the strategy of the product is close to being dead in the water!
And seeing as Madsense Reborn is already a re-branded product, I can’t really recommend a newbie purchasing the OTO’s or the course itself.
What Are The Madsense Reborn Bonuses?
Not much in the way of value here:
Bonus #1 – Register For LIVE Training Webinar
Bonus #2 – Quick Content Cheat sheet
Bonus #3 – Headline Secrets
…and 5 others not worth mentioning

My Final Opinion Of Madsense Reborn
You will have to spend money, and quite a bit of it to just, hopefully, break even until you can master it. Using these methods, I doubt very much that you will master it.
Now, I know nothing about FB ads but after going through this course I can see that it is more interesting than profitable…I don’t intend ever using Facebook ads for anything, but if I did I wouldn’t take much notice of this training.
I understand from other marketers I know that it can be very expensive and is fraught with dangers. And I can now see why.
After watching the Madsense Reborn campaign example and seeing his figures, I note that he profited very little for a lot of work done. This puts me off the Madsense Reborn idea of making money with Adsense.
It’s more or less just an arbitrage method. Get a payout from Adsense to pay for your FB ads and hope there is a profit it it. Hard to do.
Maybe using affiliate offers or CPA products over Adsense would make more sense?
I was left disappointed by Madsense Reborn. It’s sounds such a good idea to target groups in Facebook that will respond to Viral content. I can see it working if you already have a huge following and a website full of great content, but for a total newbie to make it work at a starting cost of $5 is beyond anyone’s dreams.
Where’s The Proof?
I was also disappointed that after all the hype about making several thousands of dollars with Madsense Reborn there was no proof of profitable income inside of the course. Surely if it was making money hand over fist, we would be shown the proof at every opportunity inside the training. As far as I could work out, the whole course didn’t profit above a few dollars. Hours of work done for pennies.
Now, if they would have shown a complete campaign that showed as big a profit as they say in the sales page, I would have been hooked.
But they didn’t.
Now you might think my Madsense Reborn review was a little hard on the course, but when you understand that the claims made in the sales page are HUGE, then I have to address that.
If I’d seen proof of huge income inside the course and found the training to be ‘do-able’ for a newbie then I would happily report it and eagerly apply the methods myself.
But I didn’t.
Other Madsense Reborn Reviews
I must also flag up some of the other reviews of Madsense Reborn doing the rounds at the moment. They disappoint me also.
I haven’t seen one where they actually go through the course in original detail. I also see an awful lot of bonuses being offered by the ‘buy through my link – get 10k bonus.” brigade The bonuses are rarely any good and only clutter your hard drive and are only offered as a way of claiming commission for promoting the product they’re ‘reviewing’.
Any review actively promoting Madsense Reborn in a 100% positive way must be treated with suspicion…in my own personal opinion, of course.
Be careful of false reviews.
No wonder those WSO and JV vendors refuse to let me promote their products!
If you have had success with Madsense Reborn, I urge you to comment below with any insights of this course that I may have missed!

Madsense Reborn Review
- Quailty Of Material - 3.5/103.5/10
- Can This Be Achieved (For Newbies) - 2/102/10

It’s a pity the wild claims of the sales page can draw so many people in. The claims are quite outrageous. If, however, it was sold for your typical $6.95 WSO, it might have been worth it, if only to find out if these figures can be achieved. But at $27, I can’t recommend Madsense Reborn. And to offer it as newbie friendly is almost as crazy as the monetary claims.
