Hey guys, I just thought I could document in a journal how I build and rank a brand new Spanish micro niche site. My partner and I already own a few successful Spanish MNS's but this time we'd like to try building and SEO'ing a few of them following the same initial steps we do for our clients in our service. On this journal, we will document how we build and rank 3 brand new Spanish sites. We'll start with one, put it live in the next 2 days, and add the remaining 2 on the following days. I'll try to make this journal as long and as detailed as possible and I'll include all sorts of screenshots as the days progress. Updates will be posted as frequently as possible too. Without further ado, lets detail the kind of sites we'll be building, how are we going to SEO them initially and other important details: KEYWORDS: The KW's we'll pick will have at least 2500 Spain local monthly searches, $1 CPC (USD of course), high Adwords competition and soft SERP's competition ("Relatively Easy" or less at Traffic Travis). DOMAINS: For our first site we will use a KW with .com.es available. But on the remaining 2 we'll pick international domains: a .com and a .org/.net so we can compare the performance of local vs. international domains. CONTENT: We will include 3 unique, high quality, SEO optimized Spanish articles on each site to start with. KW density will be between 1-2%. We'll also include a welcome text on the front page (150-160 words) with the goal of increasing add exposure. The articles will have at least 500 words and will be written using neutral Spanish. THEME: The theme we'll use is a custom one we use for Spanish sites, which is fully localized for Spanish traffic and modified to ensure maximum add exposure and flexibility. Onsite SEO is completely taken care of and I'll provide more details on it on future updates. INITIAL OFFSITE SEO: We will start with the following kick-start offsite SEO: - 10 ******** manual backlinks from PR2-PR7 Spanish sites. - 20 manual social bookmarks from PR2-PR7 Spanish sites. Our goal is will be to repeat the process we've done several times, but this time documented on every step: to rank this sites on Google Spain and profit from Adsense. I'll post an update later today with the specifications of the initial KW we'll use to build our first site around. Let the fun begin! Thanks. Andres.
