Hi guys, I've been at IM for about a month now and I think I am ready for a foray into SEO and building a site. I have toyed with the idea of a MNS, but I have a client in waiting so I think I will be aiming for an authority site. I found a nice domain on GoDaddy auctions that was aged (registered in 2002) and indexed (I believe in 2006, but could have been earlier). I am planning to do the onsite SEO myself as I have already been making a couple hundred bucks a week with that. The offsite SEO I am going to outsource to someone who knows this better. I actually provide content for a guy who does offsite in exchange for his offsite packages My keywords have the following exact match searches (global/local) 3600 / 2400 2400 / 1900 3600 / 1900 The competition is medium with a high adsense CPC rate, but I don't care about CPC. I'd like to work these authority sites with a LOT of content so I am not planning on just writing 5 x 500 word articles and then leaving it. I'm going to probably put over 10,000 words optimized for these keywords within the first couple of weeks. I'll have equally as hard offsite as well. With those types of searches and the level of SEO I am going to do, how long do you think it might take to get all 3 on the first page? More importantly what would you do in this situation? Should I also write down a ton of other keywords if I am going to create an authority site? Thanks again as always BHW. You guys are awesome..
