I've been a member of this site for I believe over a year now and I love internet marketing. The thing is I have yet to make any serious money off it. Well, I've decided that's about to change. I'm done with making pennies and right now I'm about to invest everything I have into one authority site. I'm almost 21 years old and in the next week or so I'm about to start yet another job I hate so I can fund my IM needs. By 22 I want to be making enough money off this site to work on it full time. I love gaming and I have picked a niche that is low competition, has a large audience, and I believe I can provide content that people will enjoy. No reason for me to make a site about health if I don't give a shit about it right? This domain that I have purchases is roughly 2 weeks old so it has nothing. I'll be updating this thread everyday with screen shots and overviews of the work I have done. I don't really care if no one reads this, I'm doing it for self satisfaction and hopefully someone out there will get something out of this. 1st day: Installed Backstreet Theme for Wordpress set it up got it the way I like it. Uploaded a logo that looks pretty damn sweet. I took down all my content because honestly it was all crap that no one would ever read. I would probably click off it as soon as I saw it just so bad. All my content on this site is going to be fucking golden, prime. This shit that I would actually sit and read. 2nd day: Added a review article, really nice layout. 707 words, with 5 pictures. Not really any keywords used just kind of wrote. Inter-linked my main keyword here with my primary article. I also added an author box to the bottom of the post to hopefully get an author picture on serps eventually. Today: I was originally planning on just adding a Youtube video + like a 300 word description. I actually got really into it and spent near 1-2 hours on just this piece. Provided a Youtube video with a link back to the persons youtube channel. This piece has about 1600 words . . . ya 1600 like I said I got really into it. It's not too annoyingly long though I added two pictures to the text and there's some nice buttons and stuff to please the eye as you read. It's basically like a play by play I have buttons that link to certain parts of the video and a short description of what's going on. I added two social banners within the post for my Facebook and my Twitter kind of just fillers for now, but it actually looks decent. Also added another author box. A)I need to find a way to link buttons to my Youtube video within my site. Right now all the buttons link off (in a separate window of coarse) to Youtube for the respective times. I want people to be able to press the button and the Youtube video automatically go to that time within my own site. No idea if this is possible but I'm going to look more into it as I think it will dramatically increase user experience. B) I need to find some really good social plugins and install a SEO plugin today. I think I'm just going to leave meta descriptions at their default. I want everything about this site to be really really natural. The only meta description I'll probably change is the main articles and my homepage everything else goes untouched. C)I want to contact the person who created this Youtube video that I wrote 1600 words on and try and make a deal with them. Ultimately I want my logo watermarked on his videos not anything to big. IDK what my plan is for this but I think I'm going to offer him 10$ and video content publisher on my website. I'll tell him he'll gain links to his Youtube videos as well as more revenue. He's not really anyone so I think it's quite possible to land this partnership. Tomorrow I'll be adding a gallery of images related to the keywords I'm targeting. I will take a list of related keywords and use them all in my alt attributes. So far my site is really coming along with just a few good pieces of content. Any suggestions/help/criticisms are definitely welcome.
