    The Jr. VIP Section has come together to do something amazing. A few of us are going to be building an Authority Website and give it away once it is complete. This thread will outline and detail how we do everything we do. A lot of 'experts' are pitching in to create something special here to benefit the community.

    This little idea of mine starts with an Aged Domain, which is 8+ Years old and in the 'Jobs' niche. This niche is SUPER easy to make money in. From ad space, CPA, Email List and Leads. You have a lot of ways to make money with this type of website. This is going to turn into the biggest giveaway in BHW History. Once we build this site, we will give it away completely free to someone in the community. No strings attached. The domain is aged and sells for low $XXX when I first got my hands on it and I have only been letting it age.


    What exactly will we be doing?



    A small handful of Jr. VIPs and Jr. Exec VIPs will be giving back to the community by doing what we do best and applying it to a site which we will build from the ground up and then give away.

    The site is designed to be an authority site. We will have high quality content at 1,000 words an article put onto the site with great keyword research done by a BHW expert.

    We have a number of members offering to do SEO for this site including quite a few amazing offers ranging from a potential PBN built by myself for this site (Depending on KW difficulty) to amazing Guest Posts on sites you will recognize which sells for $XX - $XXX a Guest Post.

    Every step I take in this 'Case Study' will be outlined here. I hope other Jr. VIPs and Exec VIPs who are helping in this project will chime in here to explain how they do what they are doing for this website.

    This will be an interesting Case Study showing how a handful of members can essentially 'Joint Venture' by doing what they are best at, and explaining how to build a highly profitable website in the process. Once this site is done it will be either given away to a member on BHW to kick start their journey into IM OR to fund future Case Studies by BHW Jr. Exec VIPs or Exec VIPs are W13S0N suggested in the forum feedback section. Either way the BHW community benefits from this journey in an incredible way.


    Who is doing what?


    Jr. Executive VIP / Moderator in Training BassTrackerBoats has VERY graciously offered to do some SEO on the website with his service LinkLure, host the website, create a High Quality Press Release done for the website and also offered to assist financially with any large expenses I may incur. BTB is an outstanding member who always helps the community out and I am honored he is willing to do so much for this Case Study of ours. He is even given us free Rank Tracking for this site to monitor its progress. BTB has his hands in nearly every facet of SEO and IM and having someone with such resources helping out is incredible. Can't give this guy credit enough. He has quite a few sales threads on BHW if you wanted to check any of them out. Amazing reviews for all of his services and if you ever read a BTB thread, you know he knows his IM.

    Jr. VIP Hugoleveille1 has offered to do multiple Guest Posts which he offers on BHW in he Marketplace. He showed me the site he can do Guest Posts on and even offered to see if he can get our site accepted into sites such as Huffington Post. Anyone into the SEO Game knows posts on site of this caliber sells for $XXX and can drive huge traffic to a website. Even lower end Guest Posts on the sites Hugo showed me sells for at least mid $XX. This is a HUGE value for this website, and something I could never have done without his help.

    Jr. VIP faithjhung offered to do content writing which faithjhung offers on BHW. If you visit their sales thread in the Marketplace you will discover the content offered is top notch, high value and highly reviewed. faithjhung essentially told me to dictate how long the content needs to be and what content needs to be done, and the content will be done as soon as possible. This is an amazing opportunity for us to get high quality content for this website and I am thrilled to have a quality writer helping us.

    Jr. VIP davids355 offered to also do content writing. davids355 normally ONLY writes for the tech niche, but after speaking with davids I was informed davids would make it work and write 1,000 word articles for the site, as many as davids355 can handle. This is an incredible offer from someone who has posted over twenty pages of helpful threads on BHW and always knows what they are talking about when they help out. Seriously, check out davids355's user profile and read ALL of the threads. Davids is a great writer and a huge helper on BHW. Additionally, Davids offered any GSA SER work needed for this site.

    Jr. VIP nihalsad offered to handle ALL Key Word research for this website. For those who have used nihalsad's service from BHW in the past will know that nihalsad is one of the few 'elite' key word researches on BHW. Nihalsad offered to find any type of Key Word I wanted, so nihalsad will be digging up a good number of 'Easy' Competition KW's and a plethora of Long - Tail KWs to kick the site off and give the next owner a great foundation of future KWs to target. This is an amazing offer from one of the best at what they do.

    Jr. VIP TayaX offered to give us high TF / CF / PR / DA / PA Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram accounts as well as tier two SEO including Social Bookmarks and Web 2.0 Blog Posts. This is a great offer from an expert at account creation and managing giving us accounts with amazing metrics to establish a social presence and rank this website fast. This is a great benefit for this site and the future owner to have properties they can make even more money from.

    Jr. VIP 3|t0n1 offered to do ANYTHING we needed except writing Ranging from KW Research to SEO and Social Signals and everything in between, a highly knowledgable SEO has graciously offered to make anything we need happen. I am not sure what exactly I will exploit this offer for this journey, but I will find a way to use this offer to make this site amazing.

    Jr. VIP forethan offered to write any content in French that we need. Most likely we will not need this offer but may use it for manual Guest Post outreach.

    Jr. VIP Euphorix made an open offer to help with anything we needed. If you have read any of the helpful posts from Euphorix you know this is a great offer from a very helpful member.

    Jr. VIP lightningblitz, myself, will be creating and managing this site. I am supplying the domain and capital plus building this from the ground up. I will supply and create a potential PBN for this site as well plus Social Media accounts. I will also be doing SEO for this site including a Web 2.0 Network and anything else that is required to make this work.


    What do you get?


    You get to see, step by step, how all of these aforementioned 'experts' do what they do best while building an Authority Website. My hope is every expert will be chiming in this thread to explain how they do what they do best.

    This should turn out to be an amazing 'how to' guide to creating a website and making it work. I will be updating as often as I get something done. First step is setting up the website with BTB's cpanel he provided me. Once I get the site going I will post the fun basics including how I pick a theme, how I set up the site structure and how I select the plug - ins.


    To Mods: If this should be somewhere else, please move this for me. I figured this was the best fit but I can be wrong.

    To Jr. VIPs and higher members, if you want to help us please go to the Jr. VIP section and the original thread is in the 'making money' section. I hope I did not miss anyone who offered to help in this OP. A lot of people stepped up which is amazing.

    You guys are super sweet to be doing this. I wish I could help in some kind of way. I can cheer you on from the sidelines or grow a mustache for you. Would that help?

    Cheering works great. As does answering or asking questions.

    Nihalsad JUST PM'ed me stating wave one of KWs should be done soon. That means those who are writing will be getting the KWs to start working on content shortly.

    This will be a long journey / case study. I will also be posting how to conversations with the people who help go, and how we conduct business. That should give insight into how the business end of this works and mimic a JV.

    So far everyone has been straight forward in this venture. Everyone posted what they can and can't do.

    Like any good JV all parties involved are being straight forward with what they can and can't do. Those who are helping clearly outlined what they can do. Those who did not are not helping at this moment.

    This is a lesson for those looking to JV. If the other party tells you, 'I am an expert at everything' and has no proof to back it up, run away. The people who volunteered for this clearly posted what they could or would do and they have a history of doing those skills here on BHW. I had clear evidence to believe my 'partners' would actually help and were experts at what they stated they would do.

    Going to be cool to see how the big dogs do it!

    I'm really interested in your pbn strategy? I'm assuming you won't be using any sort of automated link building if its a long term authority project? Are you going to bother with socials?

    I feel fortunate to be part of this JV/Project. I wish I had access to a similar case study when I was just starting off IM. To anyone looking to build a profitable online business.. THIS is the thread to follow.

    Really good stuff.

    Keep with it guys, as the value you generate to the community (and credibility to BHW) will be invaluable.

    Good luck.

    My PBN strategy is nothing special and I learned how to do it from BHW. I may build a PBN for this, it all depends on KW competition and what it takes to rank.

    Automated link building will be used if I need to do tiered link building, but how this is shaping up it doesn't look like I will need too.

    The ONLY difference between automated links done correctly and manual links is automated goes quicker.

    If you spend 20 minutes setting up GSA to build one link type, and you manually input the articles it posts after hand spinning them, is that any different than spending 20 minutes to build a single contextual link? In my experience, no. The only difference is with automation, unless you scrape your own list, you leave a footprint due to sites or platforms you post onto.

    Some links I build manually such as PBN or Web 2.0 creation and management, but that is only because I have yet to find a tool which does it better.

    People who always preach manual over automation do not spend the time to set up automation correctly.

    'Big Fish' like t0mmy and BTB have their own in house link building programs they use over doing things manually. Automation is quicker and if you do it right you can't tell the difference.

    Just my opinion on that entire debate. But if you do things well and a human can't tell the difference, how will an algo?

    Finally the thread is up. Lightningblitz has taken an awesome initiative here. Okay guys just wanted to drop by and provide some details about the keyword research.

    I will be providing any amount of keywords that will be required for this project and also provide an exclusive pack for the future owner of the site. The site is in a really profitable niche so rest assured that whoever gets the site later on will be one very lucky person. We will firstly be targeting the long tail keywords and give the site that initial kick and then go for the big keywords. For authority sites its best to have keywords in categories as it really gives the writers a game plan to work with and thats exactly what I will be providing. If any of you have any questions regarding anything feel free to ask me or any of the members participating in this project and we will be more than happy to answer your questions.
