    I learnt and researched everything I could and its time I take some serious action with something that I would stick.

    The selected keyword does not have many in title webpages but they do have high PA/DA but I am not too worried about it because I think with relevant backlinks even I can get it.

    Rankings on page 1.
    1. Only one site has the exact keyword and its a niche site which was started in 2013. Its got PA/DA over 40.
    2. There is only one niche site and some small ones all the way back after page 3.
    3. There is a pinterest listing too.
    4. Rest are ecommerce site 1 amazon and rest are private ecommerce websites.
    5. All the listing have PA/DA over 25.
    6. Except for the niche site , no other site has the exact keyword in title.

    My domain is an aged domain.
    1. It is PR2
    2. PA/DA 33/21
    3. I got it from auction.
    4. Has branded/domain name backlinks.

    I have just launched my website and after doing a google search I am already on page 14 for my main keyword. It is not indexed correctly but that will change with google. I did fetch it from webmaster tools and submitted my sitemap so maybe that's why. I have to improve the site a lot and add a lot more content on regular basis so I am hoping I can get some traction soon. I have not added any affiliate links, and I will not till I receive atleast 1k unique a week.

    My domain was in a different niche so I am hoping to take advantage of its PA/DA, age and PR while rebrand the whole thing. In future when I can afford, I will be using what Neil Patel is doing and find blogs that have not been updated in a long time and buy it off for its niche relevance and age..

    As on 27th March my website has 1 - 1500 word article and 2 - 500 word articles. I have 3 articles ready, I will add tomorrow and schedule 1 for day after tomoro. My content strategy will be to add 2 articles daily and 1 - 1500 word article page every week to show consistency to google . I will target mainly product names and provide reviews for it for now.

    I have structured my website as..

    Home
    Reviews
    -Category 1
    -Category 2
    -Category 3
    Best Of Pages ( main page and all my 1500 word article pages )
    ( To Be Added ) More Categories to target smaller keywords.

    My initial goal is to reach $500 a month by September with this website to understand and learn as much as possible and then use that money to create 3 more websites.

    I'm doing amazon sites too but regret not getting aged domains. Those aged domains in my niches are getting the upper hand. Btw all the best with your journey OP!

    Good luck OP.
    You are adding the 1500 words on pages instead of the posts? Am going to be doing that in my next project.
    Good luck.

    Added a new article and posted few blog comments in the niche. Not really caring about serp right now. I am also getting bunch of traffic from the previous niche this domain was ranking in.

    So far I have 8 blog posts and 1 home page article. All the blog posts are about 500-600 words.

    Strategy in mind, After doing a lot of research I have learnt that for atleast one month I should just add content and then start link building. So I will be adding a lot of content within this month so the content gets a chance to become old and authoritative in the eyes of google.

    Add then i will start adding more blog comments and reaching out to other bloggers for networking.

    Recently a thought came in my mind, what if using the power of my domain and good original authoritative content , I decide to sell the website rather than make money with amazon.

    What I want to know is how much a website worth if it has good original content but is not making any money?

    I think you would get more money if the website have atleast started to earn some money. I know people who have sold their sites for 20x it's monthly revenue. So I would start monetizing it and see the potential of the site. Maybe the niche is too small to make a site that earns 100-300 USD per month or maybe the niche is easily one of those sites with just a bit of effort.

    Anyhow, I will be following your journey. Good luck!
