    Focus on finding an authoritative authorship or creating yourself as an expert. You will prob need 10,000 minmium and a ungodly amount of hours. None of it will work unless you become a persona or an expert.

    Well you need to buy a domain. So around $8 there. Then hosting, which, you can get hostgator for 1 cent for the first month. Then you can either buy backlinks, buy an seo service, or create them yourself. Write your own content, and created tiered back links.

    You don't need 10k if you have great resources at your disposal, if not and you want a decent site not just something to push money you will need capital....

    I just read yesterday a thread here where they say that you must start little before you play to big part. I think you must see/check what you can do. Start a blog then keep posting quality article and keep optimizing it. When people like it try to scale it up but be aware that the competition is very hard and money will be needed. Goodluck :D

    In that case I would suggest keyword research on phrase match long tails that are < 10k searches a month. Find out what ranks easily keep writing on those longtails you will be able to generate revenue for your site legitimately while building authorship etc.

    Do keyword research, then research the keywords competition in traffic travis, and if it is easy to be ranked, base your content around those keywords.

    If you want to create an authority site, then my best advice with such a general category is to not try and do it yourself. Solicit content on a social platform or a multiblog site. Forums are a good way to go for this. Visitor generated content is great, and even article directories (with a good duplicate content removal system/policy) can help you reach higher in the Serps as an "authority" faster. If you are serious about "cars" as a topic, I would first suggest doing some keyword research and honing that down a little bit, even if you plan on leeching other's authority. Can you beat carsdotcom for example?

    My main three keywords are less than 10000 searches per month (exact) according to google tool... Competition is not so heavy and they dont have keyword in domain name and I do. Is that important and how much?

    Its good to look at KW researching before delving in, I would also say though youl want to target at least 10 of those type of longtails - decent traffic but not terribly competitive. Most likely youl be surprised some will be more competitive and others will have less competition than you think. Its important when making a site to get revenue with lower investment to be very flexible. Don't get stuck in one area or strategy.

    for creating an authority site you must be knowledgeable in tht area and also interested..

    For example an authority on say Acne -- will need you to cover everything on it ... But if you are creating a small site then you can just talk about a particular product or a particular type....

    Keep good On page SEO and keep adding fresh content

    Be specific, cars is a bit general, but would be easier to be an authority on "Lamborghini car kit conversions" as an example,

    Thank you guys, but this will be like some magazine which will include some things which other websites about cars don't have... I will not put just regular news and updates about cars and manufacturers, there will be categories about F1, Nascar, street race, cars and girls etc...

    In your mind
    Nice topic to go for. The main thing in this case will be to take care of the uniqueness in the content you will publish and some money to spend on the servers and domain name but the most important thing is to give all the time you have to this website. Rgeards,
