So I was doing some research and found an upcoming product (thanks to AI) which will become a big thing in the future. I decided to build a website around it and see how everything goes. I wanted to post this thread just for updating the progress.

Website Setup :

The website was built on 28 October 2023 (wordpress installed). I am using free Astra theme. I have setup the following plugins : Rankmath, google site kit, 301 redirects, easy TOC, litespeed cache, loginizer, updraftplus, wp word count and wp forms lite.

I will add lpugins in the future if I need anything else installed. But until then this will suffice.

My total investment is only $1.5 (domain is fresh and was available for for only 99 cents + taxes). I already had hosting account with hostaku so nothing for that but just for the sake of everyone else reading it I will add it to the cost.

Website + hosting = $12 per year.

Pagespeed is less than 1 second so everything has been setup just fine (no CDN only cache, will add it in future if needed)

I will be using GPT 3.5 content (not going to pay for 4 until I build a site that generates some money otherwise what's the point).

So all in all everything is just AI generated content on a fresh new domain. I am building the website with SILO structure.

Monetization :
I am not expecting a ton of money from this site. Max. $5-$10 per day as the niche is all technical with little affiliate offers and mostly informational content. So adsense + amazon. But the good thing is if it works out I can easily build 4-5 such websites and make more money.

I think people should limit their expectations with such projects as content is machine generated so won't be at par with native written content. But yeah $5-$10 is achievable within 6-8 months time.

Update :
I have posted 2 pages and 2 posts with over 12K words in total. I am trying to target many long term keywords through my pages and posts.

Will continue posting more content and will start building backlinks after atleast 500,000 words have been posted which should take 3-4 months time. Should start ranking for some keywords by then automatically.

Currently only the home-page is indexed in Google. Both the posts and pages are not indexed. But I am just going to keep posting content for 2-3 months straight without worrying about indexing, ranking etc.

Current Status : 12K / 500K words.
 
What will you do to get all pages indexed fast?
Nothing. I will let them get indexed naturally. I won't be adding that many pages to begin with (like 1000-2000 or more). At max. 100-200 posts (approx. 3000 words each). That will be a lot of content on this site for a while. Should get indexed by themself.

If I reach atleast $50 per month on this site I will scale it to 5 websites or maybe 10 max. Because any money over $1.5 will be positive ROI for me which I can re-invest. But I want to see how this site performs first then later scaling up.
 
do you mind me asking how you will reinvest in this site? OR is the reinvesting to make the new ones?

thanks for answering my last question bud

Not in this site, to make new ones. Once the main posts are done on this website I will only post some news type articles on this website. And will start developing other websites, but first want to see some money coming in from this site.
