    Welcome!

    Welcome fellas!

    After succeeding in my previous Journey thread to $100/day, I will be working on 2 sites that will be built for long term income.

    I decided to create this Journey Thread for the sole reason to document most of what I do to get there :)

    This will be a long journey as the goal is to get to $350/day by December 2015!

    I am already at $100+ per day so it leaves me with only the goal of $250/day which is still some decent goal to achieve in such timeframe, but still an interesting challenge.

    Below you will find information regarding the 2 sites I will be working with and some description of what I have in mind for them ;)

    ================================
    Authority site
    ================================


    Domain

    The domain i bought it from a webmaster that was not updating the site any longer and I offered him $1k and took the domain. To be honest, the domain is word at least $25k for the age and the awesome backlink profile it has. Yea $1k is still a bunch of money but it's well worth it.

    The domain has backlinks from CNN, Wikipedia, TechCrunch, VentureBeat and other backlinks. One thing is that some of these backlinks are VERY old as of 1999! PS: The domain is around 17 years old!

    Site & Plan:

    Well, the name itself reveals everything: Authority. I will make this site such that people can come to it and get what they want. I will be focusing mostly in reselling stuff here, so there's a lot of earnings potential.

    With this site I will mostly focus on SEO for traffic generation.

    The plan will be to firstly focus in 2 very related keywords like "blue car" and "red car", siloing each of them with tons of longtails. I will firstly rank these 2 pages in the authority site along with all the longtails pages. Then I will just proceed to working with keywords still very close related like "green car" and "brown car". The process is then repeated.

    The earning potential of each of this "color car" keywords is of around $40-$60/day, so I would easily reach the $250/day goal by ranking only 4-6 of these keywords along with all the longtails.

    As it's for the long term, I will firstly focus in the content and then I will start a PBN exclusively for this site along with tons of other backlinks I will build when the time comes.

    Basically I will build a site in VERY CLOSELY related keywords and rank in all of them. The method will be done such that it will pass teh test of time as well as being thematically composed of only 1 niche ;)

    ================================
    "Community" Site
    ================================


    For this site, the game is quite different from any other site I have built so far. The reason? Well, I won't be using Google to get traffic to this site. As I will be focusing in building a community of people that are interested in the niche I will be building this site on, I am going to do a lot of social stuff and new stuff I haven't tried in my life.

    It will be very interesting to see how this site will do as time goes as there are things I haven't tried in any other site and it may not work out as intended.

    The domain.

    It's a dropped domain and it only costed me $10 (registration fee). I registered this site as the name is quite brandable and the backlinks are quite powerful as it has backlinks from CNN, Wikipedia and Huffington Post other relevant sites. The thing is that it is just new in the eyes of Google so that will probably hinder it from ranking for any keyword at all.

    One thing I do when registering dropped domains is just to upload an index.html page to the root of the domain with just the url and no other text. I wait a few days and if it gets indexed, its good to go. If it doesnt get indexed within a week, I just ping the backlinks and it usually gets indexed withing the 2nd week. If it's still not indexed, I just find another domain to work on ;) After all, they only cost me $10 ;)

    Site & Plan:

    The plan will be basically to go with forums, Facebook and tons of other sites people discuss my topic and talk about this site in a way that my site actually solves a problem my audience can have. The goal will be to create a forum as well as an email list with aweber to make people come back to this site!

    As soon as I hit 100 UVs daily, I will start monetixing the whole site either with adsense and emails or affiliate programs.

    I will thnk of how I will monetize the whole thing down the road, but first I will figure out an exact plan for this site to be able to follow it to the letter.

    Let's see how it goes fellas!

    Now this is a thread I will follow. You obviously know what you're doing. Just don't loose sight of the goal when the going gets tough.

    I'm going to go and read your other journey.

    Good luck, man!

    Thanks mate.

    We'll see how it goes!

    Thanks mate! :)
    Yea I will be using WP on both sites. Well I hacked a theme I love for my money sites and adapt it to my needs ;)
    I don't use a commercial theme but a hacked theme I bought long ago and adapted it to my needs.

    Thanks mate! :)
    That's exactly what I learned from my other journey. I firmly believe I wouldn't have reached my goal if I hadn't learned that :)

    Thanks mate!

    Haha nice joke! :p

    It will take months to start watching the money roll in, but perhaps I will get lucky ;)

    Thanks mate! :)

    Thanks mate! :)
    I totally appreciate it!
    I truly appreciate everything you told me whenever I asked you :)
    I remember those tough times mate, they were not cool xD

    Keep updating this thread until you meet your goal - $350/day.

    Don't forget to build your own list for yourself in long term.

    Good luck!

    This is a thread to follow! I'm very interested in this because I'm thinking of making a community site too. I'll definitely find some gold nuggets here.
