    What Is this journey about?

    I am building 10 Authority Sites. Each site will have

    • Target Earning Potential of $1000 pm or more in 6 months
    • Minimum Earning potential of $500 pm
    • Monetized by Amazon Affiliate
    • More than 20 Articles

    Why?

    I have built several sites before and want to systemize my process so that I can grow from here. I will be making templates, documenting my steps here in the google document and will also post periodic updates.

    http://bit.ly/10AuthoritySites


    Main Steps

    Market Research
    This goes beyond keyword research. Identify a potentially profitable market and then identify keywords to target

    Steps
    Niche Identified
    Keywords Identified
    Products Identified

    Content
    Scalable content written using templates, and detailed instructions

    Steps
    Topics
    Templates
    Assigned to Writer
    Received

    Site Setup
    Build out a custom installer with plugins and themes pre-customized to my liking.

    Steps
    Domain Registered
    Hosting Setup
    Custom Installer Avaiable
    Logo & Theme Customizations
    Articles Added

    SEO
    Test and experiment with SEO to see what works and what does not. However I am splitting my links in these three buckets.

    Steps
    Base Links
    Diversity Links
    Power Links

    How am I ever going to do this?

    This is a gigantic project by all means. There are so many steps to take care of. I fully relaze that and I am building a team of up to 5 full-time members.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/752325-how-use-my-teams-downtime.html

    On top of that I am going to be hiring freelancers for content production and miscellaneous activities.

    Current Status

    I have already ordered some of the content I will need for this project. One of the sites is been setup but not to my liking.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will answer to the best of my ability without revealing the sites or keywords.

    Looks interesting, that's what I'm planning to do in the future but only with one website probably.
    Good luck.

    All the best mate. It will be time consuming but authority sites are totally worth it.

    10 sites is a lot, you will need to put a lot of work into it, but i guess 5 people to help are a great idea, counting you that's less that 2 sites per person and that's quite decent.


    Good luck with it.

    Good luck in this. Not to mention on revealing your sites but the niche? If it's a secret it's ok. I guess It will something popular though like health, loans etc.

    Also would it involve some blackhat? (seo, plugins, scripts)

    One is good start.

    Thanks

    There will be more than 5, as these 5 plus me wont be writing the content for the sites.

    Link building is balackhat in some sense but nothing too aggressive

    I love it when people get motivated and then start a journey so they can be held accountable. Unfortunately, too many quit the journey after taking the first step. Keep it up and this will be a very interesting thread to follow.

    Thanks

    I hope I can follow through.

    I am interviewing candidates and expect to have a couple of hires in the next 1 - 2 weeks.

    Most of the folks I have interviewed have zero relevant experience but are otherwise semi skilled. I am working on the training I will provide them to get my team off the ground.

    Update.



    I have hired my first staff expected to start tomorrow.

    In the background several other small tasks are taking place such as niche selection, domain registration, content ordering, etc.

    I also have some prewritten content from other project which I will re-purpose for this project.

    I expect to update the tracking sheet next week.

    Update:

    Site 1: is almost ready. All articles are scheduled and will roll out over the course of next few days.

    Site 2: I have all the content ready. It should get installed and be live in the

    Site 3: I have some more content lying around from my previous projects which I will use here (along with new articles) and may be for some more of the remaining sites.

    Team update:

    Building a team in a physical location is proving to be a tougher task and I have decided against it. Will be growing my team of freelancers instead.
