    Hi Guys,

    As you can see I am new here but hoping to help others and hopefully learn from experianced SEO Masters.
    I am looking to create my own Private PR Blog Network and before I head of to do so wanted to layout my business plan if you like to see if there are any suggestions and advise. The last thing I want to do is Start and fail misserably if there are others that are experts around that can help me through the process.

    First: I plan to obtain high PR domain that are about to expire. This is something I have read about and understand is possible.However, I am hoping someone can give me some direction in how to find and purchase such domains.

    Secondly: I plan to get a hosting account that has seperate Class C IP's for each domain and Separate NameServers. Then Host Wordpress blogs which will consist of various different organic posts.

    Thirdly: I want to keep the PR of these domain's am I right to assume using automated programs could be a way of keeping these blogs PR and continuly increasing it. Doing this means theres always the risk of the blog being penalised by google. However, Am I right to assume that this is apart of the game you loose some you win some. Also does this then affect sites I plan to write articles and backlinks for that are connected to the blog supplying the backlink?

    Any heads up or any suggestions on the 3 points would be greatly appreciated.


    Regards,

    SEO Light

    I'll try to help you out, but read my other posts from an earlier thread as well if you want more info.

    1. There are numerous sources for domains. Check any of the domain auction sites, check any of the services like Sedo, check placed like JustDropped as well and you should have more potential domains than you can shake a stick at. If you want to add some high value domains you can check Flippa or even eBay sometimes. Do some searching.

    2. That will work for your hosting, but you might as well just get multiple shared hosting accounts. But that's just my opinion and I have lots of those. BTW you can set up custom NS for shared hosting and yes I do recommend doing that for some of your domains...for others, just use the host's standard NS. You wanna mix things up, you know?

    3. You SHOULD keep all the content you can when buying an expired domain. You will also want to add content to those domains. If you want to gradually change the subject of a domain, it can be done by incrementally adding content for whatever the new subject/niche should be.

    My last point here is just start building. Just do it. Jump in. Asking questions is good, but take the first step. People that have actually attempted on their own (and failed) - or have build something and want more ideas tend to get better advice because they've shown they've got some skin in the game already. So keep that in mind.

    BTW I have met some good SEOs, but no SEO masters. No one is a master at this. Not even the venerated Rev. Fishkin. And you know who the good ones are? They all have three characteristics: they work harder than the average Joe, they test new things out for themselves, and they think about problems creatively.

    Lowbrow thansk for your reply. When you said keep the content is this a must. I have seen examples of others taking High PR Domains and turning them into blogs . I am just wondering long term how do you keep the Page Rank and Increase it for that matter.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    You never know if the PR will drop or if you can keep it. Just keep building. On some of your domains you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that they retain their PR, while others will lose it. There is no way that I'm aware of to predict that, at all.

    in fact you can know if the PR will stick.Always buy domains with a solid backlink profile.I always skip high pr domains with low backlinks profile.

    What about using automated programs to rank for keywords lets say just any keyword to keep the PR growing and moving up rather than going down would that work for example eg. domaim then just build keyword backlinks with automated backlink software for keyword domain regadless of webiste position just get the domain to be and Keep its HIGH PR so then the blog comments that backlink to the sites I want to improve ranking go up. does that make sense?

    I don't mean to be harsh, but from the questions you're asking, you should start with a few sites and learn a few ways to build links. With your current strategy you're very likely to fail. Start slower and learn from less costly mistakes.

    Very well I agree :p no rush for me happy to learn slowly. I will perhaps PM you Bhopkins regarding setting one up as per your forum signature to see what you can offer me.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    In my opinion, hosting all the blogs on one hosting account regardless of how many class-C ips they provide you, leaves a huge footprint. You are better off buying several cheap shared hosting accounts from different sites.

    split them up 3 blogs per shared account, and get a bunch of $1-1.5 hosting accounts on shared servers.
    That's your best bet.
    Likewise if you want to do this right, you should buy domains without PR and generate the PR yourself... especially since you don't appear to be that attuned to how much work and time this will take.

    Be prepared for some serious overhead as far as how much time you're going to spend on this. Especially if you do it right.

    many people say you need at least 200 sites to make a difference, I'm aiming for that, growing my network at 1-2 sites a week. I'm up to about 60 now and starting to see some power from it - so 200 may be a bit high depending on your niche.

    As someone said above, it'll be costly, and it'll take time. To future proof it you've got to spend a few hours setting up each site - about us page, contact page, unique headers etc. Then you've got to market each site. So you better have all the tools and be good with them.

    I'm actually looking to change a good chunk from WP to static .html's as well - so that'll be a VA to keep them updated.

    The cost for me definately will run into a couple of grand a year - so if you do decide to do it - do it well.

    If you sell space on it, in my experience it's worth hand writing the homepage content and pushing all of the blog posts to a subpage like "articles" or "posts"
    1) it creates a much more stable result for people who buy from you (and may prevent their site from dropping and diving down faster than normal, which is a problem with full post scrolling homepages)
    2) XMLRPC on all of them, and a posting script for it.
