    If this is my website, http://www.ancient-code.com/, how do I start getting traffic? Facebook and forums seems like it would be great for the whole conspiracy thing. Perhaps I can have some conspiracy/declassified files articles and share the articles in facebook groups/forums to start to get some traffic, but that's not enough traffic potentially.

    I'm just trying to imagine what I would do with an authority blog once I have created enough content to look legit? Perhaps if I was doing a website like "DIY pallet ideas" I could run adwords campaigns, share on reddit/DIY forums/groups....

    Just looking for my next step to promote my website with a positive ROI.... I am trying to imagine running ads and how much that would make back in adsense and I'm not seeing a positive correlation in my head, but then again I discovered the term IM just 2 months ago...

    Man, are authority blogs where I should be at for long term potential? I'm not sure how else to invest with money so I'm assuming time and quality content could pay off.. I don't know... I'm ready to start I just don't know where AT ALL!

    Maybe I should keep reading and researching before I start a project.... Also, the idea of running pay per call campaigns sounds too good to be true; create a landing-page, create an adwords click to call campaign, and if all goes well you'll see a positive ROI on essentially, auto-pilot. I thought about maybe creating a content/review site for pay per call campaigns, for example having a website with articles on adoption and all over the website have the call to action of the pay per call phone number... Rank the website and run adwords and boom...

    If only I had discovered IM forums in the 2000's when I was discovering usenet and HTML/CSS on myspace haha

    Wow you're either confused/lost or on some kind of drug that make you hyperactive. You keep using the word "imagine, could, would, should, example" when you should be taking action and testing all the method you told about.

    Facebook has to be a good source of traffic. will it drag a lot of traffic? We don't know, but that's a small niche so don't expect millions of visitors.
