    Subscribed. Been thinking more about Authority + Adsense targeting many longtails. Hope to see some moves on this one!

    Looking forward to this, going by your other studies.

    I believe it's SerpBuddy (sold here).

    can you explain the backlinking strategy? are you linking to every single post every single day? how many links per post per day?

    Loved your EMD case study, this one is sure to be good as well. Though at 1 year long this seems like a long case study for me to commit to, haha.
    Thanks for the effort you put into your threads!

    Hi Danailo,
    Just for clarification are you trying to do following?
    concept.jpg
    If yes, I am so happy that I found this thread because we are in the same boat. I spent 1 week researching keywords and found few keywords with low SEO competitions in the niche that I am really interested.

    Few questions that I would really like to ask:
    1. Are you using magazine or blog type layout?
    2. How are you going to monetize your site to support such a big budget every month?
    3. So currently are you only promoting your website on FB/TW/G+/YT/?
    4. Will you also share with us how you are going to rank that many long tail keywords?

    Wish you lots of success on your project.

    Thanks,
    Clark
    P.S. I am alos huge fan of Zoro and Monkey D. Dragon :)

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    I know this works for a fact as the most quality content you add, the more Google trusts your site and every other post gets ranked on page 1 or 2 almost instantly after posting (after about 200-300 high quality posts). I usually go for 300-400 posts for my authority sites, but with 500-1000 you'll get real good results I am sure!

    Good luck dude. Make sure each page/post has a lot of content else it won't be easy to rank them.

    Thanks guys :)

    Yes it is Serpbuddy.com

    1. Layout depends on your visitors. You must find your best one testing or copy the best in your niche
    2. Adsense, this budget is not big but enough. You must plan your ROI well before the start.
    3. Yes, will share my linkbulding plan in a few days, it is simple.
    4. With my experience and persistence

    I see you want to kick in IM but try some tools like smerush and calculate your ROI before to start anything
