I have been meaning to start this journey for a week but I didn't have a content writer back then. Now I am sort of final on 2. Below I will share my plan, costs and journey to taking this site to 20k. First let me tell you about a recent failure so that you can learn from it. Recent failure My previous site was what I was trying to do with this site but I became greedy and started rushing things by buying links and eventually the site got stuck on 2nd page with not enough trust to come to second page. Redemption This site will be done everything right, Only my own PBN network + White hat links. For this year this site will be my only focus. Plan Start site with 50k words. Add atleast 150k words in first 3 months. Once it looks authorative start posting on forums for initial traffic. After 4 months asses where it stands. Start link building. Costs Only one thing is outsourced that is content. Content Budget $2k. As my content is ready I will start updating here!
