    I have started a journey a month ago but I have decided to focus only on my authority site.

    I will update this daily with stats and revenue and would appreciate input on how to improve. My website is already 27 days old so I'll start by day 27.

    The homepage targets a general keyword which I do not care if it ranks for it or not, the actual keywords I am targetting are within the posts. All low traffic/competition keywords 800-5000 MS (most are 1-2k). I have manually searched for each keyword, defined the competition on each and have been writing articles based on competition from the easiest to the hardest, once all my "easy" keywords are done I'll move onto the "medium" difficulty and only then to the hardest. I have also split the keywords into categories, high CPC keywords will be monetized ONLY with adsense, while keywords with low/no CPC will be monetized with CPA.


    Day27:

    What I have done Today:

    -
    Nothing. (Been busy and very tired lately and not exactly feeling depressed butkind of feeling like shit.)


    Authority
    Site:

    - .Net domains and brandable domain name related to the niches I target.
    - 30 Handwritten 100% Unique Articles
    - Akismet
    - Breadcrumb NavXT
    - Broken Link Checker
    - Click Fraud Monitor
    - Contact Form 7
    - Contextual Related Posts
    - Google XLM Sitemaps
    - Limit Login Attempts
    - Shareaholic
    - Show Hide Author (not working for categories will replace)
    - W3 Total Cache
    - WP No Category Base (Removes /category/postname so its only homepage/postname to make it look more professional and shorter url).
    - Wordpress SEO
    - WP Sitemap Page


    Future Plans:

    - Fix contact us page, not receiving emails for some reason.
    - Make 250-400 word article for each category so I can get them to rank for a couple keywords too and fight the duplicate content. (since it will have posts that are already on homepage + it shows excerts from the post itself).
    - NoIndex privacy policy page.
    - Keep writing articles.
    - Buy backlinks once I reach 100 articles.

    Since I'm not currently earning anything I'll start adding revenue info once I get a daily income basis, even if its 10 cents.

    Thats a well laid out plan. You should start ranking soon because of your content. I have seen quite a few websites which have very low backlinks but have content and hence end up ranking for a few keywords(rarely in the top 3 though) . But its still helpful.

    You could even link your author id to a google plus profile too. Just my 2 cents.!!

    Oh and I'd like to thank Nullfo, BassTrackerBoats and a few others who have been helping me out in PM's this last month :)




    Yea I hope it starts ranking, I've had a keyword in #65 and one in #80 a week ago, however the #65 dissapeared from the top 100 and the other one has moved down to #95-#99. Not sure why no keywords are ranking yet even though I have decent content and good onsite SEO.

    Been using Quirk SearchStatus to see keyword density and have tweaked 2 days ago all my pages because some has 2-3.5% keyword density and have reduced the keyword density from all the 30 posts down to 1-1.8%.

    Hope it starts moving soon since seeing no ranks on 30 posts its a little demoralizing even though some keywords literally have no competition.


    Someone also tried neg SEO my website by sending almost 30k google+ which thanks to Nullfo telling me, it can penalize me, thank god he sent to a internal page and I have changed the name of the page so he has sent the google + to a 404 error which is no indexed hope it doesn't matter and doesn't get me penalized

    Do you have plan to monitize your site with CPA or Adsense?

    BTW best of luck with your journey.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    Pretty normal for a new large site... you are doing just fine in the SERPs.

    Keep building it as you have been and be sure to keep an eye on the KW density as you have been.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    I do most of the work manually, I'll do the backlinks manually too, not very HQ backlinks but until I start making 10$+ daily it should be fine after that I'll invest hard into link building

    Day 32:

    What I have done Today:

    - Posted a new article I had received as review copy from almost a month ago, the keyword was already done so I just researched for a very small traffic keyword (350 MS) and posted it targetting that keyword.
    - Applied to receive a couple free services for people who help the community on BassTrackerBoats thread , hopefully I inspire you, the readers to start your own authority website :)

    The keyword that was in #98 has fallen out of top 100 and the keyword that jumped to #49 yesterday, jumped back down to #51!

    Just some google dance, hopefully after these 10 PBN posts I'll rank for a few keywords.

    If anyone has any successful authority website please pm me as I have a question regarding link building :)
