Hey my name is Breakk, I will not bore you with some personal trivia instead I will get straight to the point. I am building an authority website. My experience is next to null, but I have been doing a lot of reading in the last two months and established a small niche website, in a unprofitable niche, but I enjoy running it. Now I want to use the knowledge I have gained so far and convert it to a more profitable project. A writer/graphic designer friend of mine is joining me in this conquest. The website will made with Wordpress Our plan consists of: Keyword Research I am using Longtailpro, Market Samurai, Keywordshitter, and Google Adwords to analyze potential keywords. Content Me and my friend will be writing all of our own content as we are unable to pay decent writers, or attract upcoming writers that seek to build portfolio. We will use the SEO yoast plug in to guide us a bit through the keyword density and all, but we will mostly be focusing on creating shareable, quality, useful content to boost visitor retention. We are also considering creating small PDF's, Mp3's, Videos, Spreadsheets and other files that compliment some of our articles and lock them with a social locker plug-in. A strong call to action will be find in each post, whether it is to share, subscribe, buy, or comment. We are attempting a sort of silo structure with plenty of backlinking to related content. We are also using Yet Another Related Posts Plugin at the end of each post. Parasites I have setup a small amount of parasites to direct more traffic to our website they consist of: Youtube, Tumblr, Wordpress, Facebook, Twitter, and blogspot/blogger. On our main website we will have the NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster that will automatically post excerpts with a link to our parasites, except for youtube. When we start link building we will build links to our parasites as well as they are easy to rank, and will hopefully be able to increase our traffic. The youtube, Facebook, and Twitter pages will also include unique content (latest news in my niche, user engagement, etc), but the blogger, wordpress and Tumblr will be on auto-pilot. Social Media Facebook. Drip in content and age Buy real likes to create authority Run a carefully thought out facebook campaign with a $100.00 Coupon Continue to post good content, and engage with audience Post on Niche-related pages, to build relationships and jack followers Later down the line we can run contests, and other promotional stuff Twitter. Drip in content and age Buy fake or real likes to create authority use unfollow to amass followers (I have already successfully done this in the past) Continue to post good content and engage with audience Retweet and respond to big names in our niche to get them familiar with our name, so we can maybe work with them later Google+ Join related communities and interact with people We're prioritizing facebook and twitter for our niche Pinterest The general pin stuff, like stuff, comment stuff, join groupboards Link Building We are hoping to start link building when we reach around 20 money articles with at least 10 filler articles. We will be using Link Emperor with the following settings: Soldier plan $147 20% Exact Keyword/brandname/website URL, 25% Keyword/brandname+prefix, 55% Random anchortext 90% Buffer links, 10% Direct links High Quality Direct links (Blog posts, Web 2.0 creation, video submission, Press releases, social bookmarking) Lower Quality Buffer links (Wiki submissions, forum profiles, blog commenting, social bookmarking) Use all 500 Keywords spread over 25 Targets (20 keywords per target) Parasite Targets: Youtube, Facebook Page, Wordpress, Tumblr, Twitter The keywords or anchor text will also contain our brandname and sitename a lot, instead of actual moneykeywords. This will ensure natural anchor text diversity. Because like I've said I am very new to this whole SEO thing, I would like some feedback on this whole linkemperor/Linkbuilding thing. Monetizing Adsense and affiliate links (reviews, top 10s, etc) I am currently looking at clickbank products and other ways to monetize because I don't really like the idea of adsense. (takes half our money and banhappy) To summarize Creating a lot of quality (not just unique, I will create useful, well written quality content) Creating parasites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Tumblr, Wordpress, Blogger) Create and manage social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest). Setting up a silo structure within the website Building links to those articles and parasites Monetize with affiliate marketing and adsense at first. I will have to do more research on monetizing. Investing all the money made back into the website for more content, links, design, etc Where are we now? We bought the domain yesterday. So far we have done setup desired theme Installed all 13 needed plug-ins setup google/bing webmaster, Alexa, google analytics accounts Created the social media and para sites Created legal, about us and contact pages Found about 10 low competitive longtail keywords to target Divived workflow amongst each other Plan all this stuff out lol (That took the most time) At the moment I am in the midst of my exams, but I should be capable to write a good article every two days. We are aiming to drip in 2 articles a day until January first where we will start looking to take on voluntary writers that want to build portfolio.
