    I've been doing IM since 2010 and early this year started a journey about making an authority website, I knew what all my past mistakes were and I knew exactly what I should be aiming for, if you're interested you may read my previous SUCCESSFUL journey here.

    The previous Journey Goal was 50$/day the website is currently making 1K+ monthly and there's no signs of stopping the growth.

    A wise man once told me "Do NOT keep all your golden eggs in a single basket" and that's exactly what I'm planning to tackle with this journey, I cannot have only 1 site making money, if it goes down, if it gets Neg SEO'd, if google penalizes it, what would happen with all my earnings? I could literally go from 1K+ monthly to 0$/monthly due to it so I must definitely start scaling things up.

    I will keep updating the thread with information on both websites however my main focus will now be the new website.

    What I've done:
    - Found reliable source of easy-easy/medium keywords, keysearch.co gives them a difficulty between 28 and 38.
    - All Keywords have 500 to 5000 MS.
    - Bought generic brandable domain just like my last website.
    - Added all the plugins I had in Site 1 to Site 2 and configured them all.
    - Created a facebook fanpage.
    - Wrote the first post 1800 Words long.
    - Sent a few tweets and facebook shares towards the homepage and the first post.
    - Added a sitewide link from Site 1 to Site 2. (This worries me a little because the new domain is only 1 day old however ~30 backlinks shouldn't hurt at all, especially since I used brand keyword)

    Total Expenses so far:
    - 1$ Domain (Cyber Monday deals on Namecheap)


    Planned expenses so far:
    - 5$ Diversity Package from Fiverr (I always do this, it's great to give your site a nice platform diversity and a nice keyword diversity, it's only 30-60 links so it's no spamming either)
    - PBN Posts (Unsure price will see what I'll purchase but between 50-150$)
    - Core Links (Need a root to be able to hold everything built afterwards right?)


    My Plan:
    Like my last journey this is meant for a long term authority site so I'll be doing things slowly.
    - Sitewide link from Site 1 to New Main Site. (Done)
    - Add content BiWeekly (Burned out too fast writing content on a daily basis for my old website, I'm not a writer.)
    - First month let it rest with minimal backlinks. (Only links made besides the sitewide link will be towards homepage for brand recognition and authority.)
    - Second Month I'll send the Diversity Package to the homepage to give the website a nice platform and keyword diversity.
    - Second month I'll purchase PBN posts towards the main posts.

    From this point on I'll do what deems necessary to rank so there's no further plan without knowing what will happen until then.


    Worries:
    - A bit scared about the sitewide link, I've seen hundreds and thousands of sites doing this with much larger sites, I doubt that I'll have a problem with only 30 links especially since I'll keep updating the website with new content + social signals.

    - The lack of backlinking sources, I cannot rely only on PBN Posts, I also need a way to get core links to each post, PBN Posts should be used for the main anchor and I can't have it that way or I'll have a very high anchor %, need decent links that will dilute the keyword pool first, the problem is finding how I'll get those links in a constant and moderate way.

    Thanks, based on my experience with my last website, the keywords are PATIENCE and MODERATION.

    There's nothing more important than patience, you definitely need to have the patience to do things slowly, taking risks is fine but taking too many risks is troublesome, you need MODERATION, if you know that your site can handle things without fear of penalization then just do it.

    My biggest problem is my lack of patience, I always feel like working on building links to the site 24/7 however I know that may not be so I usually distract myself by either writing content or improving onpage SEO aspects as well as building my social following, I don't want traffic from it, I just want google to recognize that my social profiles are also growing therefore strengthening my authority.

    The first 3 months are very important, afterwards you can just sit back and relax.

    Thanks for the support! I hope that we all can learn something! If I'm able to make this journey another success then this will be a foolproof method of how ANYONE can start earning well. Hell I hardly even invested 150$ in the first journey.

    Subscribed and I am sure this journey will also be successful. So is this website related to your previous one or its on a different niche??

    It will surely motivate me and I will folow it.
    What's the type of your main keywords? best product or product reviews or any other?

    Thanks!

    It's somewhat related but not really. Hard to explain without giving it away, let's say both are under a major niche (Imagine Beauty, Technology, Music, etc). I was thinking about adding a new category/section to my old site and post the articles there since it would be easy to rank due to the domain authority however I prefer not, if my domain got penalized or something I'd be fucked.


    The keywords for this project are kinda like:
    "Top 10 xxxx"
    "Best xxx for xxxx" etc
