Hi, there's one thing to clarify before starting the journey. This site is actually my 3rd Amazon affiliate site. So you may wonder why I build a brand-new site instead of developing the ones that I currently have? The problem is that my other niche sites use an EMD domain, thus it's pretty hard to expand the topics and products. Hence, I decide to go bigger and broader. And I won't mention my other sites in this journey. There are so many things that I learnt from building the first one, so it definitely gives me a great start and decent experience when it comes to build an affiliate site. That's enough for it. What is this journey about? I just got a Brandable domain couple days ago and set up the themes for it. Here is the theme that I use: http://themeforest.net/item/smartmag-responsive-retina-wordpress-magazine/6652608 Great theme that score 90 points according to Pagespeed insights. Besides that, I also install and set up all the required plugins: - Yoast SEO - Thrive Visual Editor - WP Super Cache - ... The site currently has 10.000 words of content and I'm planning on adding 290.000 more (Most of them will be informative articles). Let's just say that I manage to get about 120+ articles that ready to publish in the next 2 months - 300.000+ words in total. Very lucky for me, I don't have to pay any money for them, not even a cent. (I'm really sorry but I can't tell how I got them). You might notice that this journey may sound familiar to hekke's journey. Well, I'm really inspired by hekke's journey. if you haven't heard of it, make sure to check that out. My Milestones for the site This time, I will set up a lot of milestones so it can keep me motivated and make it easy to keep track. I will update the list of milestone in the next post. The SEO Plans For the first 2 months, I'm planning on building the web 2.0s network for it. But before doing so, I'm going to send some Social Signals for each targeted articles. Why Social Signals you may ask? Because I received lots of decent results that prove Social Signals can provide initial ranking for your site. Here is the SERPs of my site that only used Social Signals (I absolutely did not build web 2.0s or PBNs to it). For this journey, I will update the expense cost, numbers of articles, numbers of words, organic traffic and total earned. All the milestone and statistic will be included in the next post. I think that should be enough for the head up. So wish me luck!
