So I've been meaning to get into creating authority websites. I already have one with ~80k unique visitors monthly but since it's gaming-related the ads aren't worth it. I've been fascinated by SEO for the past two years now and I've seen google updates come and go and I believe that the only way to 'proof' yourself is to actually build websites that will last. Having a 5~10-page website isn't going to-do much in the long-run, now is it? The plan is to start off with getting (3) websites up, running and ranking decently before going onwards - remember I'm building big websites so they need a lot more care than the average MNS. Website 1 (one week old) My first website which is already up and running. For now I'm targeting one main keyword and two long-tail. Monthly Global Exact Searches: 8000+ Approximate CPA: $1.58+ SERP KW1: #11 KW2: #14 KW3: #8 Earnings $3 so far Website 2 (Not yet launched) Second website, still waiting to finish the articles before releasing it to Google. Monthly Global Exact Searches: 18000+ Approximate CPA: $1.37+ SERP KW1: - KW2: - KW3: - Earnings $0 so far What's the plan? - Build manual web 2.0's with unique articles (not spun or re-written). - Twitter/Facebook integration (Let's face it, social networking keeps getting more important) - Add 1-2 articles each week to each website. If you have any questions or ideas, do share/ask!
