    I am Wizard, you probably know me by the other two journey threads I have ( http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/my-journey-discussions/753770-wizards-ultimate-pinterest-journey.html and http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/my-journey-discussions/738801-wizards-ultimate-twitter-journey.html journeys ).

    Personally for me this will be the biggest project/journey I've ever done, I am targeting $100 a day.

    I feel this is the project where I will face my biggest challenges and all my skills and knowledge I have accumulated will be tested.

    I actually don't know what to say more and lets get to the what, how and when.


    This is a project for an authority entertainment news site!



    What I have and what I have done by now:

    -Brandable domain name
    the domain name is awesome easy to remember and it literally perfect for this niche.
    The domain have: DA=23 PA=34, TF=15 CF=30 so its a nice start.

    -Prepaid VPS for 8 months
    I have paid for a year for the VPS almost 4 months ago and it was just sitting there. Its a small VPS it has a ram of 750mb, but surprisingly fast.
    I will host the site for now here and if I outgrow the VPS I will just transfer to a bigger one.

    -I have already set up WordPress with a fresh theme and one article that I have wrote today.

    -Google analytics and Google webmaster

    -YouTube channel

    -Twitter bot

    -Instagram bot ( by the end of this week I will buy FL )

    -Proxies ( they will be handy )


    What I am planing to do:

    -SEO
    I am planing to buy GSA+CB+Indexer in the next few months.
    My plan is to build backlinks for every article I publish.
    I am not planing to over complicate this step as really there is no need.

    I will build "quality" links to the articles with 50-60% naked URL and other % will be the usual anchors. I am not planing to target any Keywords.
    I am just building juice to the articles and let them rank for whatever KW they will rank.

    -Social Media
    I will start with few social accounts ( twitter and instagram ) and grow to 50+ accounts combined. This will be my primary and probably only source of traffic at the beginning.
    I have a YouTube channel that I will upload every video there. I don't want to leak my visitors to others! I just need to find a ways how I can make the videos I will download unique ( this is on my to do list ).
    I will open a one facebook fanpage and grow it, it will not be easy but I will manage to do it ( its not my first time ).

    -Unique articles with Unique Images
    I will star with one article a day. Unique content with Unique images. I am hoping to get to a 3 articles a day, I will not even try making more then 3 as I think its the sweet number for this kind of site.
    I was experimenting with Google images and how I can make them unique.
    I was searching for a program that can do this but unfortunately for now there is no program that can do that as fare as I know. But I have found a way how I can make 60-70% of the images 100% original and this will be one of my biggest asset for this journey.


    My formula for success ( at least I think it will be ) is: Original content with original images + SEO + Social media = $$$$

    As for monetizing I will start with AdSense and see what are the other options down the road.

    The two main goals for the first 30 days will be:

    -Make 30+ unique articles

    -Make 20+ social accounts



    This journey will be everything but quick and I am OK with it.
    I am planing to do this right and with no cutting corners.

    This is really generous from you! For now I am not planing to do seo at least for the first month.

    Actually I do :D and that's why I am doing this. I have the next 4-5 months free ( I have to dedicate 3-4 hours a day for studying for my certificates )

    I was just thinking about original images idea...
    As you said that you are experimenting with Google images and you try to make them unique.
    After editing, upload your image to google search and see if it finds any related match.. If google can find original image there, then probably its no good.

    Keep us updated with this experiment.

    I know, when I'm done with he image google can't find the original one. The image is completely 100% unique in the eyes of google.

    Is the niche geared towards a female or male audience? I am just wondering because of the social media aspect.

    Goodluck and be strong! :) as you said your planning to do gsa to all your contents and naked branded.. Are you gonna hit them directly to the money site? Authority site? If yes then you have to get a good super list for it.. Or scrape your own since your targeting your own niche and you must target your niche in building this list as well.

    Hey Wizard, nice objective man, as always good luck!
    About your images, try to use Creative Commons images and credit them on the footer of the article or description of your images. You can find creative commons images with commercial rights on several websites like flickr.com, morguefile.com, 500px.com.... You can easily, depending on the niche, request the rights of the images directly with the author, it's an win win situation. This will keep your adsense safe. I highly advise the use of Creative Commons for the long haul.

    Great project Wizard. If you can entertain and inspire your readers as much as you entertain and inspire us with your journeys, I have no doubts you'll reach your goals.
