With this journey thread, I am going to focus on growing one specific blogging project throughout 2021. Although most of the content generation for the project will be done between January and March with regular updates, I will post anything relevant that happens after that as well as reaching traffic/income milestones and monthly updates on the growth of the blog too.
  • I have settled on a niche for the blog, this was actually harder than I initially thought it would be as this is only going to be a relatively small blog so I didn't want to use a niche I could potentially make an authority site with in the future. Although the niche is related to one of my interests, it is something that I have only been interested in for a few months so I don't know the topic as well as I would like.​
  • I have done some initial keyword acquisition today for the project to get some general keyword ideas for the blog. I basically just used Answer The Public and Keyword Sh*tter and ended up with 1119 initial keywords to check the competition of after removing the keywords with 0 predicted search volume in Keywords Everywhere. As it's snowing pretty heavily here right now, I will probably spend most of tomorrow going through these initial keywords to see how many of them are actionable for articles. While doing the keyword competition analysis tomorrow for the keywords I will also be doing alphabet soup, people also asked, and wildcard checks in Google to see if I can find other keyword ideas as I go.​

Well, What is the niche?

I'm not planning on giving it out, it's not one of the major niches though.

Cheers pal :). They have been approved for listing with the broker but because of Christmas/New Year I think their office has been closed. In all honesty, the only reason I agreed to list them was to buy more Bitcoin but it is currently $33,048 and was only around $16,000 when I agreed to list them so not sure if I will sell them now unless I get a really good offer. I really didn't expect Bitcoin to surge as much as it has as quickly as it has.

i wish you the best of luck mate!
whats your content schedule/strategy looking like?

Cheers pal :). It looks like I am going to be busy with online and offline projects for the next few months so it's going to be a pain to have a set schedule. Once I have settled on keywords I will probably try to get one article done a day if possible depending on the free time I have. I will probably send some content orders to @NatashaNixon service next month to try help me get some initial content on the domain though so it can all start aging in. I also want to order backlinks for the project either this month or early next month too so they can get to work ASAP too.

Nice, so you are pushing every articles as fast as possible, and then you let the site sit so it can rank when doing other things?

It's a keyword research strategy.

Yea, thats the idea for this one, not 100% sure how long it will take for the content generation but ideally I want the vast majority of it dont by the end of Q1.

Where will you outsource backlinks

The agency I am thinking of using arnt on BHW so I dont think I can name them :(. It will just be guest posts and niche edits anyway so theres decent vendors on the forum who offer the same link types that I will be using.

An interesting journey worth following

Cheers pal :).

I am going to be aiming for 100 initially and then see what I can do from there as I have a few different projects on right now.

The art is from an artist who I work with, its part of the branding for my personal blog so thought I mays well use it for my journey threads too :).

Goodluck OP!

Not doing anything until it rank, not even posting once a month, don't this send a signal to Google that you're no longer active?
