Hey guys, after my great success in micro sites (specific niches), Iv decided to go for the greatest challenge of all... Create a huge authority site (competitive niche). I started this journal because i think its the only way i can keep working hard on the site without giving up easily. OK so lets get started: Iv earned a good $10,000 from my small sites over the last year. That should help with SEO on the long tailed keywords im going to rank for in this authority site. If you wondering why im not continuing creating the small sites the reason is because its just too much work with seo and all the on site content and lets not forget Google penalty's . I would rather have a huge site that Google will love instead of the small ones which can go down at any time. The other reason why im focusing on this site is because i absolutely HATE university, im only in first year and i cant stand it. So hopefully this site becomes successful (earning more than $50,000) a year so i can drop out ASAP. Ok so here's what iv done so far: Bought the domain name Created the site logo Created the site design and scripts. My next task is to: create a plan for posting articles on the site. Im going to be the only person who writes the articles for my site because i only want the best articles and not spun crap. Get a PR of 4 or above (any tips on this would be appreciated) If you have realized, i haven't wrote anything about off site SEO yet... This is because i want Google to choke and gag (lol) on my unique content before building any backlinks. It also makes my site look really natural which is what i want. So far I have gathered around 10 really good keywords that together have around 50,000 exact searches. The competition is really easy for all these keywords so i will target these first in my articles. By this time next week hopefully i will have around 10,000 words on the site. To be continued... NOTE: To keep the thread tidy and easy to use, I WILL POST ANY UPDATES REGARDING THE SITE ON THIS POST (OP), and answer questions using posts bellow.
