While doing some research today on few niches, I came up an network of websites owned by 1 guy that truly were made with care/ super high quality content, After digging deeper I realized that they are just made to make money, but his websites are just one whole whole different level... -each website had a custom built wp theme/really nice logo, they were all WP but they were custom made.. -ALL of the articles on the website were at least 2000-2500 word long, and each article linked to like 3-5 government/super high authority websites. -his anchor texts for backlinks were mainly naked urls/brand names, he was just building authority to his site without spamming any keywords AT ALL, and had TONS of links from an actual EDU /gov sites- how did he got backlinks from them? He actually had a great content and they linked to him naturally. -The websites itself was made so professionally that they looked miles better than any Official government websites -Btw he wasnt going for 100,000 searches a month keywords, I bet 99% of his traffic is from longtails. I do know the niche very well and how much people can earn from it, and The guy was probably making around $200,000-$300,000 PER MONTH with a network of just 6 super super good content websites. Each website had around 100 articles, and he was ranked on google on first page/first spots for pretty much all the keywords he was targeting..Without actually building keyword-rich backlinks or even building any backlinks at all to most of the inner-pages.. His domains were only 1.5-2years old so not like old domains where he had spent ages making them Just goes to show that super super quality content and actual care goes a LONG way and you don't even need shitloads of backlinks to rank high.
