I had written this post somewhere else and decided to share with my BHW Mates too. here we start - "OMG! My site is penalized again!" Stop saying that. With every update, you cry because you were dependent on google only. You have definitely heard "never keep all your eggs in one basket". And that is why you always created many sites. However, in current penguin time --> Google = basket ^^ for many of you! SO A. How about creating a site where you don't have to depend on google? B. How about creating an authority site? C. How about making a site that is capable of bringing traffic on its own? D. How about making a site that gets love from social media sites automatically? E. How about making a site where if a user comes, he will read 10 more articles for sure? F. How about making a site which a user will recommend to his friends too? G. How about making a site that would never get penalized with any google update? H. How about if point G ^^ is wrong, even then you have nothing to worry about? I. I know many of you will say, "why a tutorial for doing above points? Just order magazine quality 1000 words articles from writers that have a college degree in that particular field". BUT how about I tell you how to do this thing in a much better and super easy way where you have to just follow the exact steps and which is as easy as 1,2,3? In this tutorial, I am going to explain things needed for all those A - I. I am going to talk about how to create a nice authority site... (also you can apply these techniques on your existing website) Lets learn making a nice site. Choosing a niche and keyword research --> NOT YOUR USUAL ADWORDS KEYWORD TOOL RE-RE-REPEATED TUTORIAL --> Go here Alexa Top 500 Global Sites Alexa has sorted all the sites according to their alexa rank/traffic here. Now click on "BY CATEGORY" tab i.e. go here--> Alexa - Top Sites by Category: Top Alexa has sorted all sites by traffic and category i.e in the health section, they have sorted all health sites according to their alexa rank. Now navigate through those categories (if you already have a niche/existing site in your mind then navigate through your site category). Now note down sites in notepad/XL... for example, if you went to health section, then keep noting sites in a notepad until you reached to a minimum alexa rank of 150k. Actually, the trick is finding big sites in your niche those have little content on them. Now here comes a question. Quote: IF I AM INTERESTED IN HEALTH NICHE THEN WHY NOT PICK Webmd.com only? That is the main site. Answer is -> Content that gets loved by people. Putting 10 thousand articles on a site gets it a hell load of traffic but who wants to spend that much? Why not just put 100 articles on site and get too much traffic? Take a look at this site --> Life'd Site has a total of 125 articles and it was sold for $205000 https://flippa.com/2857289-lifestyle...000-revenue-mo ^^ site had content that was loved by people. Are not there many lifestyle magazines that have over 1000 articles on them? ALSO written by the so called "magazine quality" writers or whatever you say! If ^^ is true then why LifeD got too much traffic? Because of seo alone? NOPE. Definetely NOT. Check link profile of LifeD... it doesn't have many links. The only answer is, because users love the site more than anything. We are trying to do the same. Anyway, back to Alexa thing So you noted all sites (none having an alexa bigger than 150k) in your desired niche in notepad (or try with all the niches). Now fire Market Samurai (I don't know of a good replacement. It comes for free for 7 days and if you have more than 1 laptop then for 7 days more, or if you format the system, then for another 7 days OR fuck shit and buy it for 100$ ) Go to "seo competition" section of market samurai Now click on "Add custom urls" When you will click on "Add custom urls", a box will open (as in above image). Put your all urls there.... Now Market samurai will show many stats about the domains. Look at the column named as IC. IC is the index count of a site. It gives us an idea about how many articles are there on a site (it shows results as per bing.com but fulfills our purpose). If a site has 500 IC then you can assume that the site has about 200 articles (just an idea. I know you can track exact count but who has that much time to check exact count of articles for every site?) Now keep doing ^^ until and unless you got a site that has an IC of less than 1000 (the lesser you can find, the better). Suppose you got 2 sites that have IC less than 1000. BINGO! Great chances that you just hit a jackpot! If the site is not a service providing site, then high chances that the site gets nice traffic because of nice content only. What to do now? Fire Scrapebox. and do this --> and now harvest for -->site:domain_which_you_searched_above Now you will get all urls from the website you finalized from alexa. Do ^^ for each domain that had less than 150K and less than 1000 IC. Now you have found almost all of the urls from those sites those were already having nice traffic and low count of articles. Now what? Suppose that scrapebox gave you 200 urls from the site. Now you can do 2 things. 1. If you can afford, then give all those 200 urls to your writer and tell him to write an article for the same topic as given there (also tell him to use a different title than source url and don't use that url as the only source for writing the article. He should also search for similar topics on the web) 2. If you can not afford that many articles then --> check for page PR of all those urls and pick urls that have high PR. Suppose you got 40 PR4 urls 60 PR3 urls 50 PR2 urls and 50 PR1-0 urls then pick first 40 PR4 urls or 40 PR4 + 60 PR3 (whatever you can afford) and give those urls to your writer for writing an article for the topic on each url. (The trick is, higher the PR, higher the chances that it is a popular article.) Next, we dont stop here. We have to get more cool topics. Search for "your_niche magazine" in google OR pick the biggest site for your niche. Suppose you are interested in WEIGHT LOSS and you went to hxxp://www.fitnessmagazine.com/ then search for --> site:hxxp://www.fitnessmagazine.com/ in scrapebox harvester and get all urls and check for PR of harvested urls and get articles written for urls, those have a high PR. Actually, higher the PR, higher the chances that it is a popular article. That is how, we get site_niche/site_topics for our site. Now next: Creating a site --> (skip this if you already have a site)--> We have only found niche and cool topics so far. Nothing has been done yet. Now its the right time to create a site. Conscious and sub-conscious mind: You need to understand ^^ before any other step. Look, there is something named "sub-conscious mind". If I ask you which soft drink (pepsi/coke/many_others) do you prefer and why, THEN all of you will answer that "because of its taste", because "I like this soft drink amongst all". Nope, that is not right. You prefer that drink because of your personality. Also, if I ask you what is your favorite color, then all of you will tell different colors, but the reality is that the favorite color of all of you is "blue". Look at your computer, look at all companies' logos. (Sub-conscious mind behind this thing) If you dont agree with me then go and watch a fuck load of sub-conscious mind videos on youtube. ALSO watch videos in which they have explained "why an advertisement is created". I can explain ^^ but there is no point in doing that because we are talking about sites/seo stuff here. Right? I talked about "Conscious and sub-conscious mind" because we have to pick color theme of our site carefully. Lets look at these magazines --> hxxp://www.fitnessmagazine.com/ hxxp://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness hxxp://www.womensfitness.co.uk/ Why red, black, white on all 3 websites? Also, they have almost the same niche. All because of something named "advertisement", something meant for "attacking your sub-conscious mind". They have already done their research for "sub-conscious mind". Just enjoy their research for your own sake. We don't have to go in all that shit. You have to do this --> You got your niche. Now look for authority sites in your niche. Look at the color of themes, text, titles used by them. USE EXACT COLOR THEME FOR YOUR SITE. Finding a cool domain ---> Find a domain that sounds like a brand. What else? You are creating an authority site. Stay away from embedding any type of EXACT MATCH KEYWORD in your domain name.... Just pick a name that shows your niche, that sounds like a big brand. Tip: https://www.name.com/ when you search a keyword here then they show you many related domain names, many times they show superb available names there. Now? Get a logo. Picking colors for a logo --> again look at logo of hxxp://www.fitnessmagazine.com/ hxxp://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness hxxp://www.womensfitness.co.uk/ Do they have almost same font? Almost same style in their logo?
