Hi there, Althought I'm not a beginner anymore, I always wanted to start one of these journals to actually view the development of one of my authority websites from up close. So, here is the plan for now and what I have already done: Buy aged domain which has relations to the niche I'm building my authority in - DONE Setup Wordpress with neccesary plugins - DONE Install light-weight, responsive theme - DONE (Will definitely switch to more 'authoritive' looking theme soon) Buy high quality content(Yes, american native with outstanding background) - DONE (Ordered 35k, received 17,5k) Add the content to site with proper onsite SEO, without over-optimization in DRAFT (Followed phpbuilt's thread closely in combination with own experiences) - DONE Publish 1-2 articles a day, as long as I've got articles ready - DONE, 8 published out of 23 Configure Serpbook for this project - TO BE DONE Setting up Social Media pages to auto-post new posts on - TO BE DONE Finalizing / Updating posts with added video's / images (they all have at least 1 or 2 now) - TO BE DONE Obivously, my aim is big. I have faith it can be done, although I have not done this for one website as of yet. Monetization is Adsense, but open to suggestions. My starting date for keeping records is: June 1st. DEADLINE for $100 is: December 1st. Backlinking is obviously something that will be done, but not so soon. I think this is all for now. I WILL keep you all posted as things progress. Also, I hope I can answer any questions that might arise. Thanks for your time.
