Ok Well, Lets Get Started. Please note, this does require funds to start - ~$45. What we're gonna do is find a crazy popular topic that hasn't hit its peak, get in on it, monetize it, and enjoy the profit. We'll use CPA for the monetization. So first off, we need our niche - we want the "goldy locks" size. not too big, not too small, just the right size. When you search in google, you want to be hitting about 200,000 results & over 5,000 searches a day for your keyword (can check on wordtracker for volume). GET SCRIBBLING DOWN KEYWORDS AND IDEAS OF NICHES! Now, google them. Look at the top few results. Are they domains? blogs? articles? If a domain already covers your main keywords, cross it off, try another. Why? We want maximum exposure, find something easy to rank in a large market and thus increase profit. Keywords in domains helps this greatly. Please note, if there is just one domain in the top 3-5, do a page rank check on it, if it's very low (less than 3), and has few backlinks (check yahoo explorer for a free estimate on backlinks) you can probably get top spot anyway, so don't worry. You can use niche finders, keyword elite, analytics etc. to help in this process. Keep doing this until you have a nice list of possible niches, as we're about to trim them down. **REMEMBER** - we want topics that are already hot, but getting hotter everyday. Think of awaited new products in your niche! (IM niche doesn't work too well), but think of things like this: golfers - new golf clubs series from top make etc. guitarists - new amplifier/effects pedal etc. sun glasses - new oakley glasses etc. just something new that will be talked about. Since you have a better chance of scoring high in SERP & getting a high quality domain as it isn't talked about as much as it will be, and when it does you're the first thing people will see. Now you have a few, go look at available domains. Google "domain registration" if you don't know where to start. Go through your list and see which domains are available for your keywords. for example "obamapresidentialelection".com is available, so if my key words were these, i'd get is ASAP.. Now you need some hosting, any will do, you'll have a simple 1 page website so size won't really matter too much. I wouldn't pay more than $15 a year though. So you now have a domain and some hosting. Now all you need are 2 things. 1) Sign up to a CPA network (can take a few days for the good ones, but some accept in a day - search!) and 2) build your website. I'll assume you now are all signed up to any CPA network you choose. Right. You now have hosting, a domain and an offer to promote (choose something your niche would like. Semi-pro golfers wouldn't want free anime or what ever. ... well I hope not). Now onto your website. We first need to make a simple 2 page website (font page & CPA offer), with a banner and some basic SEO on the main page. Incorporate your CPA and we're done. Making a banner isn't hard at all; make it about 640 wide by 170 high and relevant to your site. Say for example I was in the ice-skating niche and some amazing new boots or something were being released, you can just take promo pictures from the website and use those generally, or just add some text etc. Now, we aren't selling anything so don't write a sales letter. Just write a good honest review of the pro's & con's etc. that people want to read. Make it about 4-6 paragraphs long. Be genuine. You now have a website with a banner & content. Add your CPA offer at the bottom. Its easiest and usually highest converting to have a poll type scenario "Will you be buying xxxx?" or "Do you like xxxx?" etc. etc. and the links below go to your CPA offer. HINT: iframe your CPA offer so the URL still comes from your domain & the user trusts it. Now you have everything you need, you need to make it look pretty. I usually keep stuff centered, white background, banner at the top, headline then text & CPA underneath. Thats the hardest part really - once you have it done you can use it as a template for any site you do. Theres some hints on this at the end of the post. You now have a website with an amazing domain & targeted keywords which are monetized. However, you won't make anything yet as you need traffic. Good traffic. You need to SEO your page. first White Hat. You've done the main one - keywords in the domain. This is huge. Now for the rest. We'll use meta tags for our major keywords, add sub-keywords too (related keywords but not as important). We want to keep our keyword density at around 3-5% overall, but about 7-10% in our first paragraph as this helps aswell (... apparently. I've always used this and it works fine, but since I've never not done it, I can't judge). The headline should use H1 tags, as SE's give some weight to these (every little helps!) Most SE's don't like CPA offers, so make this page a norobot page to stop it being indexed. Your CPA page should literally be a norobot tag & an iframe to your CPA offer. Once thats done, you should be pretty happy once google indexes you, as you'll be pretty high on those key words. Add adsense to your frontpage aswell, at the bottom under the CPA offer. People seem to think it helps with rankings, but I'm not sure it, either way add it anyway as its just extra money really if people click on â€˜em! Usually, this would do fine, and you could move on, but where's the fun in that? Let's go over the top with the website. Lets go INSANE and see how much we can make. After all, that's why everyone's here. Welcome to the dark side - the real reason I use this method. 1.) ARTICLES The content you wrote on the site is *perfect* high quality, unique content for an article. You've already wrote it, so submit it everywhere, either paid & submitted manually or via a bot. This can get an easy 300+ backlinks very quick. A lot more if you get some good people to do it for you. if you want to do this, look around here of ways to do it. Or in freelance - some very good, well respected people will help you on this! 2.) SOCIAL BOOKMARKS Since you're talking about a hot, upcoming item, social bookmarks want to here about it. get it dugg, stumbled, everything! Social bookmarks like these can make stuff go viral, *QUICK*, so submit everything there. It really is worth taking the time to make it all unique, but you don't really have to. Since you're on the hot item everyone wants to talk about, websites like yours will be passed around a lot - more backlinks, more traffic, more uniques, and ultimately more money. You can get someone to submit it for you aswell, or do it all yourself, up to you! 3.) VIDEO. You can even use the promo pictures you found before & make a youtube video of them, your webpage content as the main body of the video. you can even do this in powerpoint. Remember your keywords and everything else in this. Youtube often gets me above competitors on google rankings, so don't under estimate it! There isn't just youtube of course - don't forget myspace video and the other 20 or so video sites! (3.5) Submit website to sites like jumptags etc.) Once that's done, sit back, relax and enjoy your profits. This seriously is probably the easiest way to make some easy money via CPA. The only hard part is making the website, but i'm sure you can find a template easy enough! Once thats done, its just copy & paste and change a few things around! Sorry its long, just wanted to be semi-thorough! to recap: 1.) Find profitable niche 2.) Find Hot, Upcoming Items 3.) Get A Killer Keyword Domain (.com only!) 4.) Get Hosting 5.) Join CPA Network 6.) Design Website (usually this is done before step 5 but not always). 7.) White Hat SEO On Website 8.) Black Hat SEO On Website 9.) Crack Open A Beer & Relax. The only two "hard" parts of this guide is 1.) Finding upcoming items HINT: think of popular items etc. for example, the ipod. if then next model out was the 7th generation or what ever. it may be wise registering 7thgenipod.com or something (actually, that's not a bad idea ,well when its closer to the time). As people will be searching for it etc, competitors won't of picked up on it as its not on google trends/yahoo buzz etc. Just be creative. Profitable & lucrative niches are always on the lookout for new products so i'm sure you'll all find something! 2.) Designing the website. HINT: look at current CPA websites & methods etc doing a similar thing. Or just look around here for a template. It's worth using dreamweaver aswell so you can just use a WYSIWYG editor and make everything nice. Once its done, its done and you can use it over and over so take some time and do a good job. Or hire someone to make a single page. But hopefully, if you've done everything right, you should have a good listing in google on a pretty large base of potential customers. a couple of thousand uniques a day if you did everything right and only 30-40 CPA leads to get your money back for the domain & hosting for the year. You should get this in a day. With some crafty CPA techniques, you can get a pretty good income from just one of these sites. Imagine what its like when you can brainstorm, register & create a website in 2 hours and can easily do 5 a day if you want! Right, I know this is long, and probably doesn't make sense as its 2:30am. So if it doesn't, just search on here, or ask, most people probably know everything in here already. Just be creative and enjoy it. It doesn't cost too much in terms of money to try out, so just give it a blast! Hopfully this isn't too bad for my first CPA guide! + Thanks would be appreciated! Jamie.
