The inane justification story: In the past half year or so I have been toying around with PBNs. Originally I only wanted to give my authority site some further boost. In the process, I stumbled over a nice keyword with much more potential than I had room for on my money site. I got plenty of original images (my own) on the topic (just in case you might ask: it is not shriveled micro penis) and I call myself a decent writer. So I decided to turn a PBN into something I could bank on, meaning a niche site. In the past 3 months, I have been creating content and curating pictures for the new project whenever there was some spare time (and there was not a lot). Today I decided to launch the project. As a means of motivation for myself, but also to give others the chance to learn from my inept mistakes, I decided to start yet another journey thread people will use to spam up their comment count. Here we go What do I have? - Roughly 20k words of content spread over 20 articles/pages; ideas for another 20k - 500 pictures to compliment the content - keywords and longtails - 5 aged web 2.0 accounts (3 months) with a bit of unique content; they all got aged social media accounts attached - Aged Twitter account for the main project with 519 followers - Aged Pinterest account with 555 followers - aged Facebook account I will not bother to use yet What do I plan? My main keyword has ~800.000 monthly searches. Competition is only medium (medium for the volume!). I will monetize this website through AdSense and affiliate deals (and a bit of amazon). Will probably not be able to rank for the main keyword in the top 10 for the next year, but my tests have shown that ranking the various (and still good) longtails should be doable. Aiming for 500 US-Dollar per month at the end of one year. Since I already got a small network in the niche, I will try to keep my expenses for any blackhat services to a minimum (we'll see). I'll be ordering a couple of links after I exhausted my own resources. Planning to do this in about 3 months. Not planning to use any virtual assisence. We'll see if I change my mind about that. lol. In a way I just want to proof I can actually rank a new website from scatch. What I did today: Registered a domain and secured shared hosting. I hate researching this kind of stuff and decided for asmallorange.com. Mainly cuz they appeared on my facebook timeline and I thought that targeting that well couldn't be that bad, lol. Domain is privacy protected. Downloaded a silo theme from seodesignframework.com. it is probably as horrible as the rest for siloing. Since I am bad at analyzing code I shall never notice anyhow. Set up wordpress, the theme and the basic silo website Filled the website with the usual legal stuff Set up search console, google analytics connected my social media outlets with the new site and applied for business pinterest account fiddled around a bit with the design ordered a cheap logo design on fiverr (can get something neat later on) Further plans: I will set up the category pages and posts in the next couple of day and optimize the already existing silos (as of now they are more or less plain text). I will schedule the pages to appear over the next couple of weeks. Guess setting up these pages will take the rest of the week. Also really need to customize the design, but I guess this will take way longer than I want to. I will also start social media automation for the aged accounts to increase my followings. Also need to apply for adsense and affiliate deals, but that should be relatively easy as I already got accounts. Will probably postpone that for next week. Also need to create pinterest images for each page/post. Doubt this will happen in the next 14 days. But I am in no hurry. Next update tomorrow. stay tuned.
