Hey everyone, I've been emphasizing a new method lately just because I've seen how amazingly effective it works! The beauty of it is that once you've set it up, you have your own ATM CASH Machine on AUTO PILOT! You can either go the "authority site" route or the "niche blog" method. To kick things off, message me your niche and email and I'll give you a free list of low comp, high search keyword list. I wanna give back just because you guys have really been great, and supportive. Especially the mods and admins here on BHW. I don't have time to explain everything so just post here if you have questions on anything specific and I will try to answer! I have three daily stream of income for each site I have: 1) I get paid when people read my blog pages, click my CPA links, and act! 2) Then I get paid by selling monthly ad spots 3) Then I get paid to send out solo ad emails to my list of responsive users! Recent Examples of some Blog Site Sales $$$$ (These are not my sites by the way!) Lifed.com Sold for $205,000 - Link And some more other major acquisitions in the Blog Industry: Bankaholic by BankRate Topic: Financial services and banking Price: $15 million ArsTechnica by Conde Nast Topic: Technology news, incredible ability to get to the front page of Digg with just about anything Price: estimated $25 million PaidContent by Guardian Topic: All the money-related news with a special focus on technology sector, impressive ability to break news from some of their secret sources. Price: $30 million + Bankaholic is one to pay attention to - because they get most of their traffic through organic traffic! How Can You Replicate What They Did?!?! Recently - someone has offered in the mid $xx,xxx for my blog - but forget it! I prefer to keep it and bank from the monthly stream of income. 1. Pick your Niche - If you want to generate some ideas, you can look on yahoo questions and answers, pulse, google trends or even just the clickbank market place! Now you need to register a domain name. I recommend you to use godaddy auction to find an AGED domain name. So when we start building links, you can start with a higher link velocity without getting banned. At least 6 months is good, but only do this if the domain is brandable or exceptional. At least 1 year is much more ideal. Anything greater than that is EXCELLENT. If you can grab a domain, and the number under age says 2, that means the domain is 2 years old! Get it! For beginners, there's something called EMD. So if you wanna go after a keyword with a certain number of results, you can buy an "EMD". Sometimes an EMD may be easier to rank. Anyways - let's say you buy this domain citicards2011.com to start a CITI card Affiliate Program. If this domain was 2013 it'd be more ideal. You'd benefit for all the related search terms when someone includes "2013" in their search. 2. Wordpress Site - Simply set up a wordpress and grab a theme related to your niche. Athesis is a good one. Use a theme which has a built in opt in form. Follow all the proper steps to make your site recognized as an authority. Get google author approved. This will give you the image thingy on search results. Get the GD star Rating Plugin so you can have stars next to your posts on the SERP results. 3. Keywords/Monetization - You don't want to go all the high competition keywords like everyone else or you WON'T rank for anything! That's the biggest misconception and mistake that every beginner in this niche makes. By going after the biggest keywords you're wasting money targeting money-losing keywords with high difficulty for ranking. Okay - for a limited time - i know how lazy you guys are - so MESSAGE ME - with your niche, and email, and I will send you a list of LOW COMP, HIGH SEARCH keyword list! Next step - go out and build a page for each keyword on that list and you have a good start Next you want to apply for affiliate programs related to your niche. Use Odigger. Then you can get some nice offers for example: 4. Build Backlinks - Here's a good starter list for you guys! This should be enough to get you guys started if you're just starting out. Stage 1: Do Press Releases (request me if you need a PDF on it), Do Directory Submissions, Do Social Bookmarking, Hook up OnlyWire to your Blog, Do some RSS Pinging. Stage 2: Next, search your "niche + forum" into google and starting posting crafted replies to messages on the forums. Always include your URL but include the title of the page as the anchor or else you'll get banned from the forum! Answer on Yahoo Questions & Answers - get a level 2 account for $5 so that you can post links and not get banned! Stage 3: Do Guest Blogging for other sites. Search "write for us" or search "contact us". Write them a proposal that you are willing to write for them. 90% of the time they're willing to let you write for them and leave a guest blog link. Always check Page rank and Authority with Moonsy (free) or SeoMOZ (this one's paid). The higher the DA (domain authority), the more juice they'll pass to you making your efforts worthwhile. Anything above DA of 40 is worth your time (this is for guest post blogging) DO NOT build backlinks in spammy places, or places that contains any of the "bad" words. If you do google will PENALIZE your site! If a page has too many outbound links, and 80% of your links are from pages with too many outbound links, google may give you a penalty! Especially if your domain is just brand new - you will get penalized right away. 5. Bank! (this is what your visitors stats will look like over time) Instead of using adwords and paying $1.50-$3.00 per click for 393 visitors (which would cost over $1k per day), I get it all free through SEO and optimized pages! Notice all the forums sending me referral traffic. This traffic is GOLDEN. You want to find visitors in PAIN, with a PROBLEM, and the solution you provide to them will be bringing you $$$$ Some people wanna lose weight, some people want to find a better credit card, some people want better insurance, some people just wanna get out of debt. Whatever the problem is, YOU will be providing them the solution. Once you provide them the solution and you explain the benefits, they will CLICK, and they will BUY. How You Make Money? -You get paid from when users click through to your affiliate link and buy shit -You get paid when you build an email list, and you get paid to mail to your list (remember to use getresponse and turn off double opt in) -You get paid to sell ad spots from various ad provider sites (like Text-Ad-Links.com) -You get paid if you put adsense on your site and people click on your ads, you get paid $$$ Mail People From Your List Only do paid ads. You can get paid for every email you send out. I don't mail them useless junk unless I have a sponsor at the top of the message or I'm sending out a solo ad. You can list your website in solo ad directories or network with other webmasters and let them know what you provide, or you can put an advertising link at the bottom of your blog. Anyways, so each ad sent out below has paid me quite well depending on my mood and depending on what they feel like giving me. Usually there's no negotiations. Just take a look at the screenshot below.. you can do the math. In total how much can you make? Well over $300/day easy. So to sum it up: So anyways, the trick is to GET STARTED TODAY!
