    Introduction

    Hey, here is KHer0. I hate introductions so let's just get in the topic, shall we..

    In this journey, I will show my way to create Authority sites.

    What is Authority sites ?

    Do you know when you do keyword research for a specific Niche and find a site that ranks for almost every keyword belongs to this niche? =. It's always in the first page and you hate it. You ask yourself how should I beat this f*** site. Well, this is the authority site we are talking about.

    The best simplified way to describe it: It's the best source of information in the web for a specific Niche.

    Why I love Authority Sites ?

    1 - I hate SEO. Through authority site you should be able to rank for your LTK without any SEO. And you will need very little work to rank for the main keywords your are targeting
    2 - Doing the minimum of SEO will save you from google updates. EMD update, Garbage Content update, ...etc are all away from you.
    3 - Different sources of income. As your site grows and takes over the niche, you will be able to monetize it in many ways. Every Niche is different and this is a whole different topic. But you won't be depending on one source of income in this journey

    I can keep going but I think you get the idea.


    What is the reason for the journey?

    For me :
    I'm the type of person who gets idea by talking. If you watched House.MD (My favorite show btw), you should know what I'm talking about. So, I hope this thread will help me to get more ideas through our discussions in the journey

    For you : Like any other journey. You will get new ideas, maybe motivation or even a chance to ask questions while you are doing this journey with me



    My Workplan

    I never do any method unless it has three things:

    1 - Passive
    2 - Scale-able
    3 - Long-term

    Therefore, our goal in this journey is creating a site that can

    -
    Generate full passive income ( +100$ / day )
    -
    Finish it in less than 2 months and generate the full income within 3 months MAX

    In this topic we will go through

    - Niche Selection
    - Keyword Research
    - Domain Buying
    - Theme Selection and Plugin Installation
    - Structuring you site the right way (Siloing)
    - Content Writing
    - Getting Traffic
    - Choosing the right Monetization
    - Earning Updates

    I will explain each stage as we reach it and answer as many question as I can.

    How is this Journey Different ?

    In this journey, we will be talking about TECHNIQUES ! It won't be a hard blueprint where you copy paste what I do ! Instead I will tell you how to know your keyword target.. How to monetize it ! How many articles to cover you Niche. We will discuss the Buying Funnel and a lot of other fundamentals...etc. We will go into strategies. How to maximize CPC.. How people mind work.. As a result, everyone should find what suits him and create his business around it

    NOTES:

    - This journey should be FAST. We want to see earning by the end of December. We will work daily, 6 days/week. And for 4 - 6 hours/day Max :)
    - As for budget, all you gonna need is a domain and hosting
    - I won't outsource anything in this journey. So, there is no excuse

    This is all for now, and Lets make some money :)

    I have been a bramjnet member since forever :)

    Before even starting to write anything, every one should have his blueprint of topics he needs to write. It will depend on the size of the keyword. But I guess 10 posts/day isnt a very realistic as I don't want to outsource :). I will go after 3 - 4 posts / day

    As for monetization, you will see later it doesn't depend on the way I'm using. It depends on the number of visitors your are getting.

    I don't want this journey to be a blueprint where you follow 1, 2 , 3 .. Bluematter has done that successfully.

    I want it to be more about techniques. What is your keyword intents? Which way of monetization will work for it.. Some of us will use Adsense and CPA.. Other might use affiliation. I will discuss the techniques and everyone has to choose his own way :D

    Gotta added this to the main article.. See, discussions create ideas :D

    That sounds fair, I am actually doing something similiar to this, with 2-3 posts per day taking it real easy. And yeah before I started writing posts I made a lay-out in google docs after doing my keyword research. It looks like this:

    Keyword: <Keyword>
    Title: <Postname>
    Notes: <Notes, Links, YouTube, etc)

    And if I randomly get a good idea for an interesting article in my niche, I check if I can mix it in with a keyword, if that's impossible I just write it as a filler/user-experience article.

    Niche Selection
    As we are in a tight schedule I will update this daily and everyone should be working with me in a daily basis. Now, lets talk about Niche Selection.

    First Rule : Any Niche can be profitable

    Yup, you can make money in any niche you select. Some are better from others but any niche can generate a good income. And by Niche I mean a market. Fortunately, It's the easiest step in Authority site creation

    Second Rule : You Niche must be really broad

    You can't choose Chicken Recipe as a Niche. It's a keyword. Chicken Recipes Niche would be Food. So, when you to choose your Niche you have to look at broadest keyword you can think of. Cars, Foods, Health, Electronics... etc

    Why insisting on broad Niche ?

    Glad you asked. As we go deeper in our niche, we want to have many themes to choose from. We don't want to narrow ourselves in a tight niche while there are a lot of better opportunities out there. Another things is that once you find a working niche, you can create one, two or even 5 sites to cover it. And you know that you will always generate a good income from it. R0meo is a great example. He has passed 500$/day from one broad niche by creating 6 sites in about it. Pretty amazing he achieved this in 15 months.


    Your Niche Checklist :


    • It must be something you are interested in. You don't have to be knowledgeable about it. Actually, when I choose my niche, I choose something I want to know more about. As I know I will have to write a lot about it, then why don't I benefit from it. For the next 2 months you this Niche will be your whole life. If you have no interest in it, then how can your produce a quality site about it!
    • Take your time to choose your niche. And by time I mean few hours max. Make a list if everything you are interested in or want to know more about. Then find the broadest term it belongs to. After that, start comparing between them. Use your mind. What do you think will be more interesting?. What do you think you have more passion for? And Who do you think are interested in this Niche? Does it have products? Do people pay for knowing about it?

    For Example :
    Cars is a very commercial Niche. No matter how you talk about cars, it will always turn into a product
    Health is informative Niche. And in most cases you can make from Health Niche more than Cars niche.

    This will lead to a very important conclusion. Do Not think about monetization right now. You can monetize any Niche. You first priority right now is traffic. And for traffic you need quality. And for quality you need something you are interested in.

    Tips & Trick :

    No matter how hard I try to brainstorm the Niches I'm interested in I fail. They call it mind-block. So, here are some tips to help you to find your niches.

    - Go to Wikipedia . Check out the Categories ( Portals in Wikipedia ) and see what interests you
    - Go to Amazon. Check out Books Section and you will find hundreds of categories
    - Go to About.com. Choose categories and you will have the same
    - Go to any Directory website.

    Bonus Tip : If you are a reader like me. Check your library ( whether it's physical or E-book ) you will find the topics you like to read about.
    The conclusion:

    Instead of thinking about authority sites as a source of income, why don't you think about it as a source of knowledge. As long as you gonna a lot of time learning about it, why don't you gather more benefit by learning about something you want to know about.


    To - Do :

    • Find 3 different Niches you are ready to make your authority site about.
    • Explore if there are variations to the Niche keyword ( Car, Vehicle and automobile are variation of the same keyword). You can do this by checking any spinning tool :D , Dictionary or even Google translator.

    Coming Next :

    • Studying the Buying Funnel and how to define your Niche intent. Which will help to achieve 2 things

    • Defining your theme Niche ( Main Keyword )
    • Defining the right monetization method for your target
