    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for some advice, I'm building a site that has one main focus, but also has around a thousand of sub-niches as well.

    The best example I can give, is that say I was putting a website together for sports equipment, but the sub-niches were types of sports, from Chess to Soccer to Badminton to Absailing. Like this example, my particular area has literally thousands of keyword opportunities, but they all have a common theme.

    Going back to the example above, if my target market was sports equipment, some keywords would be:
    - buy badminton equipment
    - soccer gear
    - the best absailing tools

    So, we have around 1,000 sub niches mixed with a selection of 5-10 generic names of my market. The keywords are in the thousands literally.

    In terms of budget, there are three of us working full time, in January, our SEO budget would be around $1,500 per month.

    My question, is what would be the best strategy if you're faced with potentially tens of thousands of keywords surrounding a common theme. In terms of competition, there are maybe 3-5 authority sites that would be tough to compete against, which makes me think that I should spend more time analysing key words, but I wouldn't really know where to start?

    Would i just simply have to review all keywords associated with my niche, go through them one by one and see which ones I would have a reasonable chance of being ranked for? I've done some brief research and there's plenty of opportunities for low hanging fruit, but I'm trying to build a large SEO "net" that would cover as many words as possible.

    With that in mind, what would be the best Tiered strategy to tackle this?

    My intentions:

    Tier 1
    Build a PBN of 50-100. These would be a combination of hosted domains (on separate hosting networks, 123Reg, 1&1, AWS etc), add in some expired domains here relevant to the niche, as well as some strongly controlled Web2.0 sites. The content for each site would be quite specific, i.e. one could cover all types of soccer equipment, another could discuss all types of basketball equipment. You get the gist.

    Tier 2
    These would be more Web2.0s and similar, maybe with some cheaper domains thrown in the mix (NEED SOME ADVICE ON WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST LONG TERM T2 PLATFORMS). There'll probably be around 500-1000 of these in total. Content would be loosely spun, but generally readable, and should stand up. I would want FULL control over my T2 links and have the ability to cut them off if need be.

    Tier 3
    I would probably set away GSA SER with 500-1000 projects targeting the Tier 2 links. Quite a mixture here, but the anchor text would include the thousands of keywords mentioned at the start. Content would be spun, with not much focus on quality.

    Use Followliker
    I've seen a few threads here mentioning IG and because of that, I've had a look at FL and set it away on a personal IG account. The results look promising so I may also use FL to grow my business IG and Twitter accounts. I'm sure these would be useful marketing platforms later down the line. Does anyone know of a blackhat way to gain ORGANIC Facebook page fans?

    Promotion of Mobile Apps
    Some advice would be needed on this. If mobile users were to land on my site, I would not want them using the http site at all, but to direct them straight to our mobile apps.

    Thanks in advance, any comments and suggestions are welcome, and have a great weekend everyone :)


    EDIT: As if the above wasn't complicated enough, add multi-lingual in there as well ;) Which would be done after English US targeting. (Maybe Spanish, French, Italian & German)

    It sounds like a massive project, extremely complex and complicated and actually reminds me of another big project they did once in a similar scale. You may remember it? It was called The Titanic.

    I actually think the idea is plausible - it's every news site type of website.
    If you do have the juice to pump a few main categories, thi could be a great idea.
