    hi,

    at the moment im more into handling my client's seo, and i have 2 writers who really need a job and i want to order articles from them longterm.

    ive got experience with doing affiliate sites, but with which i really put some effort into ranking in google etc. in this case it will probably be only some slight manual seo, good onsite seo, and a very rare scrapebox/senuke blast, just when the servers are free, cause my clients are the priority and i BARELY keep up with scaling the operation.

    let's assume the articles would be targeting longterm kw's on seo software, seo, clickbank product reviews, etc, monetized with affiliate links and adsense.

    they would produce 4x nice 700 word articles/day with images and it would cost me $30/day (very high quality articles).

    do you think i the site will see ROI by itself after 3 months?

    sorry if it seems like a noob question, but i really dont have the time to put more effort into it and its been months since i did stuff like that.

    cheers

    Its hit and miss whether you will. There's so many deciding factors, making the question impossible to answer 100%.

    I would say you will definitely get the ROI within 9 months unless something goes horribly wrong (deindexed etc)

    ROI within 3 months will happen on some niche sites but not all (but that also depends on how big your initial investment is)

    My personal strategy, is to get these blogs set up, get a main 1000 word article on them as a main page, get all the plugins installed, nice custom header. Then get some bookmarking, web 2.0 etc done...then like a fine wine, i let them mature for a couple of months without too much more effort... that's when i step things up.

    As for niches, you would be surprised what will work depending on what advertising you are using.

    Eg the domains - howtofalloutoflove.net/org are available with 3600 exact searches. This would be terrible for adsense, but you really could make bank with a certain clickbank product. So easy to dominate as well.

    I wouldn't start paying for articles until after you see revenue.

    If you are planning such a large site then I assume you want organic traffic.
    Now with such a large content base you can easily target long tail keywords.
    Now even if each long tail KW gives you just couple of visitors per day, you will start getting some good traffic in total.

    To start with such a site, forget xrumer and senuke type blasts for the initial period. Keep everything white hat for first few months and try building authority and trust. Maintain your post frequency and regularly update the blog.

    For link building, go for article submission (few selected top directories only), guest blog posts and manual blog comments.

    Also keep track of keywords for which you are getting traffic. Check your site rank for those keywords and try to improve the rank.

    Once this is done, you can move to link wheels and pyramids.
    Never use a xrumer of scrapebox blast directly for your money site.

    thanks and thats a useful comment.

    i assume there is still nothing better than wordpress for such a site? i havent blogged for a while. been more into programming lately. but i dont think reinventing the wheel is a good idea for this project.

    Wordpress will be good for such site.
    Create a silo category structure. Use Parent categories and child categories.

    Also make your tag and categories pages and noindex.

    For creating a blog you can use wordpress because it is easy to understand and provide all the features.
