I am starting a niche Viral site in the area of quotes and sayings. i will focus on compiling lists of different types of quotes and will craft a unique and engaging funnel for each one. The idea of just blasting a site in a couple weeks/month with tens of thousands of quotes and expect to monetize with adsense is very stupid (Its 2017 not 2010) with rankbrain in full effect and AI is deindexing and penalizing thousands of sites each day! not to mention the rules of adsense and its aggressive sudden bans. So, instead of that madness i will have to work very hard to make every subcategory unique, engaging and pass any manual review. that means, i have few categories that will be broken down to topics, each topic will have: Tens to hundreds of relevant quotes per subtopic( 1 single longtail keyword ) Reasonable amount of handmade high quality written material per subtopic. Reasonable Number of relevant supporting material per subtopic ( Images, gifs..ETC) Proper interlinking between these subtopic posts ( in the same topic or main keyword) Then comes the super mother of all posts ( the main topic keyword) with thousands upon thousands of quotes not added to the subtopics ( unique not mentioned in the long tail lists ) that pillar post will have tons of pages or will be like ( Volume/Part 1 2 3...ETC) THAT IS A SHIT TON OF WORK PER TOPIC/CATEGORY 1 mega pillar post per main topic keyword ( the biggest, toughest keyword) + tons of supporting unique relevant longtails properly interlinked, on-page optimized and leading to the all mighty pillar post. so "love quotes" which is very strong keyword and get searched millions of times will have 10-50 long tail posts with hundreds of relevant quotes between them all leading to the main gigantic keywords with its variations which will have thousands of more unique high quality quotes with supporting materials. a mix of some images and text quotes properly formated + the commentary texts and subheadings...ETC) it's a very hard task to do all of this for each keyword and scale without compromising on the quality. unfortunately the only advantage i will have is the quality so i will not be scaling this easily, it will take time. Still after all of this i will work my ass off doing proper offpage seo and will make sure to have strong presence on major social media and discovery platforms. Think 100+ high authority referring domains with hundreds to thousands of links for each topic. that's where and when the quality of the site will play yet another big role in making these links organically or with minimum efforts from my end ( quality works for search engines and people too ) As mentioned, this will take a viral twist. So i will have fewer categories than general quote directories which is good news really. i have a slow internet speed and a 2nd generation rig with 2Gs of ram and an external keyboard because the main one is not working with a built in 10.1 inch screen that drives men mad. i had a $300 budget which i burned on a failed attempt to start a relationship authority blog due to the lack of experience in that niche. bought an expensive keyword package ( very good list btw ) and acquired a brandable aged domain ( without backlinks though) and here i am pivoting with very low budget to get things going. i will be using this domain. i have few dollars left for hosting and will be mostly grinding moving forward. If you have recommendations for a theme or perhaps a plugin or any advice in general, please don't hesitate. Constructive criticism is also welcomed, but don't be rude or disrespectful So wish me luck I really need this to work for a million reasons some of which might be obvious to you already. i will make it work. i will work for it. i will try an update this journey everyday. Again recommendations and advice will be appreciated, so don't hesitate to speak your mind. PS: you usually see a lot of journeys mentioning stuff in general, unlike what i did. i did so to avoid lots of questions about my strategy...ETC) so i sure hope i don't get hammered with questions.
