    First, hello everyone. I won't bore you to death with my story so I'll be keeping it short:

    I started IM full time approximately 2 years ago with adsense. I had ~16 websites that were getting me a nice sum of money and after the almighty panda hit, I hit the sh*tty hole.

    Needless to say I was going towards poor man's land and just worked here and there, making some bucks but nothing serious.

    I tried everything under the hood but didn't really stick to one method and the time has come to think about getting a solid business.

    Lately, I was involved in working for others on major freelancing sites like odesk, elance and some other platforms.

    This is the story of my life :rolleyes:

    Now the idea:

    A huge authority website with quality content, quality reviews (after reading the actual products), my own product and basically making it a long term source of income.

    What I Have:

    1 website with ~50 articles
    1 high quality product
    40 email subscribers (averaging 2-5 new signups daily)

    What I Will Do:

    I will post daily stats and work done on the website to motivate everyone here!

    I will also do keyword research and post 2 high quality articles written by me, daily.

    I will also do SEO (my own twisted methods).

    I will report daily traffic updates, commision updates, etc.

    Building authority takes some time and patients so if you want success, you will have to follow through till the end. Positive results will only start to become more exponential for you as time goes on.

    Good Luck Bro

    Good plan man but I suggest to find another source of income along this. You will need extra money to pursue this journey.

    Im looking to get into authority sites too, its a big commitment to make regarding both my time and my money. As above posters have mentioned, you either go all out, or make very small returns.

    Think and grow rich.

    Do you have experience with authority sites, what would be a ballpark figure for a low competition niche?

    Thanks

    Day 1/60 - Establishing the right mindset 07.03.2013

    What I did today:

    Keyword research - found 2 keywords

    Wrote and published 2 posts (over 1k words on each) - competition is low-medium (I don't really care too much here as this will be a long term project and SEO will be ongoing).

    Created 10 aweber emails

    Drank 1 liter of milk with 4 cups of protein powder equaling ~140 grams of protein in one sitting.

    Can't wait for toilet time :Flush:

    Stats:

    UV: 259
    Subscribers: 3
    Clickbank hops: 10
    Landing Page UV: 4

    Summary:

    Clickbank: 2 sales until now: ~100$

    sales.jpg


    Sales today: 0

    Product sales today: 0
    Payed hostgator: -12$
    Payed aweber: -20$

    Total: +70$

    Available tools:

    SEO:
    Scrapebox
    Gsa SER + SER engines - WEB 2.0 + diversity
    Captcha Breaker - self explanatory
    Senuke XCR - mainly for web 2.0
    RankWiz - document submissions
    AKV
    Brain

    Kw research:
    Market Samurai
    Long Tail Platinum

    Automation:
    Ubot Studio - didn't really used it, just bought it and its siting there - receiving suggestions

    Everything Else: Brain

    Rank Tracking:
    SEO Powersuite

    Mini Note: Should I get the scrapebox rank checker? Anybody used it and it's ok? Should I switch from Powersuite to scrapebox rank checker?
    I want something light and fast.

    NOTES:

    Wow, I can't believe how motivated I am now because of you guys! (I'm not a kid, just excited).

    I already put aside ~3000$ for this project so I can fully work only for this website and I will also do some side freelancing work (3-4 h/day) but I won't count the earnings from that.

    My goal is to go over 50$/day in 60 days just to prove everyone that it can be done and I will put some of my methods here.

    I will try, perfect and share anything here or on some video tutorial so everyone will be getting something in the end.

    What I want:

    BMW-320-07.jpg

    PPS: I made this a goal for me because as soon as I get the $, I'll get one of this baby.
    I don't want to spend more than 5000 euro's on a car so this is enough for me.

    Note To Everyone

    PS: I encourage everyone to make me try any kind of traffic method/seo method for you.

    If there are any interesting threads or resources you might know that can be interested to be applied and report a case study made here, again, I encourage anyone finding something interesting to hit us up here or with a msg.

    I don't want to waste more time reading 1000's of threads so I will only focus on doing things :D.

    Dont waste your money on protein powder, you can cook high protein meals far cheaper and they will be far better for you.

    And dont forget to work out .. best for protein is chicken from some good bbq place .. and lots of spinach in your diet ..give you fiber and iron
    also much better than protein shake is egg whites , remove the yellow and drink or cook the egg whites.

    good luck

    Whats your strategy in term of SEO? Are you keeping it secret?

    Are you going to attack social media, direct traffic such as YT, yahoo answer, reddit, ect ?

    Nice thread i'll be following this.

    Good luck! So I thinking about building an authority site too. But I dont know exactly how long it does take to make a living from it. Are we talking about months/years/decades??
    I think it also matters in which niche you are in.

    Well, I'll use every kind of traffic source I can test and report here the results.

    For the moment, I have a huge SEO plan to put into work with some custom things set up and ready to attack my keywords.

    If everything goes well I will think about putting it here

    Well to be real, I think that somewhere around 90 days are enough to see some solid business. Over 50$ daily and also having a never ending source if you work on it for a long time - that's what I'm looking for.

    Day 2/60 - Getting Used To Writing 07.03.2013

    What I did today:

    Keyword research - found 2 keywords

    Wrote and published 2 posts (over 600 words on each)

    Stats:

    UV: 231
    Subscribers: 2
    Clickbank hops: 23
    Landing Page UV: 6

    Summary:

    Clickbank sales: 3 (+1)
    Total: + ~100 (+ ~35$)

    NOTES TO SELF:


    Tomorrow I will be starting my forum implication campaign along with answering questions on answer sites and see where I am heading for.

    NOTES TO YOU:

    I am preparing 5 days for each big social network (facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest, instagram) which will be focused on so If you have any suggestions, threads, books, guides that you recommend and which should make this a good case study for everyone, I'm here.

    We will all have an example of what to do and how to do it :).

    With 3000$ for this project I would push it more "heavily" mate. What I mean is outsource articles, and get services with high PR, SEO and all that. It's much easier. Remember time is money. This is the most important thing, and millionaires know it. Money are just printed papers which are infinite, your time is not. Don't make this a very long journey, work smart and with the money you already have, you can invest and become authority in no time.

    PS. I want to get a bmw (2nd car) hopefully by the end of this year, but I want an E30, I simply love it. E46 is nice as well, get facelift it's much more reliable (the ones with headlights upwards).
