    Hey,

    For all those who are making $5,000 a month or more every month, this is for you

    If tommorow you had to start again, like you had no websites at all... But you had the knowledge of what to do, and what merchants/niches to join... and you had to be making $5,000 a month by the end of December how would you do it?, where would you start?

    Would you create 5 mall sites?
    would you go for all the high paying merchants? and which ones?

    Like please.. i would really like to hear as thats the goal i have...

    I have the time and the money to do it, well more time than money lol

    There are a lot of people that say go with music equipement, other say, go with loans other say, build a mall site , possible 5 of them.

    " If you want to be wise, walk with the wise"

    There are some of you, maybe only a few who know what it would truly take to achieve that goal.... now im not talking about making 7 sites and have all of them earning 5000 a month by sepetember.. but im aiming for having them steadily increase intill when december has ended.. a person is now earning $5000..

    I will buy as many sites and do the optimization and link searching.. but I dont want to go make mall sites promoting all the wrong products... if you get what i mean..

    or individual sites that couldnt make anything..


    So any advise or wisdom you could provide, would be really beneficial.. I know its possibly to be making $5000 a month by the end of december thats just over 8 months to do it...

    Where would you begin?

    how many domains would you buy?

    how many of those would be mall sites?

    what categories would you have on those mall sites?

    Who would be your best merchants


    well i hope people read this and it doesnt go to the bottom of the pig pile lol.... thanks very much..

    I'm sure it will get plenty of readers, I'm just not sure why anyone would give you such specific information. They'd be creating their own competition and that's not wise.

    If you're looking for general help and advice, read the boards, there's 1000s of posts that will help with your goal - I seriously doubt anyone will part with their specifics though.

    It doesn't take much money. Sounds like you have the great advantage TIME. So make several different types of sites and see what happens.

    Less than 10grand a month for me is a failure ...I have not dropped below that in about 14 or 15 months now.

    Step 1)

    Create a content driven site with truely great content that can be found no where but my site. Spend atleast 3 to 4 months on this site and dont stop until the site is listed in dmoz, yahoo and other sites online that can push pagerank. This site will not focus on money at all, no banners, no merchant links ... no pop unders .... truely a clean site built for my visitors.

    Step 2)

    Choose one main theme to promote ... for me that is pharmacy ... then create one main sales site with regular seo practices.

    3) Link from my high ranking content site to my sales (commerical or type b site) and push the pagerank of my sales site to the max ... no less than pagerank 5 .... once the site gets a 5 I am not worried about pagerank but will feel better once I see a 6

    4) Create about a dozen sites within my choose field .... again link from my content site to each of the dozen sites within my field of choice and then link again to my main sales site.

    Instead of linking all 12 of my "sub sales sites" directly too the merchant I now link straight to my "main sales site" this pushes pagerank still further and also creates an enourmous amount of link popularity to my main sales site.

    This method works best If your choose industry has "white label" affiliate site with generic order pages. This way the main sales site starts looking like an authority type site within about 6 months and enjoys a tremendous amount of free traffic and if done right sales.

    Good luck .... my system works .... not easy by a long shot but nothing worth 38k a month (my best to date) is.

    Cheers,

    Hey Samy thanks for the input..

    umm what I was meaning was not them revelaing their site, but i mean we all know the main big earners.. and again it all comes down to hardwork at the end of the day... i just thought that there were some merchants that surf on abestweb that are always looking to sign new people up... i wouldnt mind signing up , just want to sign up to the right things

    My method used was similar to Brians and works pretty well in a PR driven environment.
    Unfortunatley I always semed to be late to promote certain niches and there was huge competition.

    For my "anchor site" there seems to be a ceiling of about a PR6. Next time I would choose an area where I could get link exchanges from sites in the PR7 & PR8 range.

    Only question i have brian about the creating or content sites

    do you think it shoudl be totally based around the niche you wish to promote, i.e in your case Pharmacy

    but lets say you plan to make 3 sites

    one based on satellite tv
    one on loans
    one on casino

    would it be wise to create one content site and have 3 pages of informaiton 1 on loans 1 on satellite and one on casion and then link to each site from that page. or do you think its better to make a content site based around just one niche

    i.e

    casino content links to casino affiliate site
    loan content site links to loan affiliate sites.


    also do you create this content site and wait intill it has PR before you link to your affiliate site?

    and can a content site get PR withouht its own inbound links?

    If you have money i will just shop for a the Seed PR site (topic not important)instead of creating a content site and waiting for months for it to gain sufficient PR...Its not that hard ..i even once bought a PR 7 site for just $100

    After you have a high PR site create a network of sales sites around it as Brain suggested ...just repeat the process creating more isolated networks and if possible use seperate hosting for each of them...by this you have more risk tolerance in case the SE decided to nuke one

    Rightto lads., but dudes noone has touched on mall sites or how to reach the goal

    see this thread almost like a ... if you had it all taken away,... how would you regain it thread.. in 8 months... so that in your 8thmonth you received a check for $5000

    you had no time limitations, a small amount of cash.

    what type of site would you build first

    MALL SITE ( many categories)

    or and

    INDIVIDUAL NICHE SITE? ( one topic)?

    Last Hope, what do you love or have a passion about? Do that and do it good.

    As far as mall sites, i have one of those and so do a lot of people. I really wouldn't recommend it to anybody starting out. If you did a mall site, can you do better than whats out there now? What can you offer that the thousands of mall sites out there already don't have?

    I loved your post.

    Can you (or anyone) explain what you mean by - "white label" affiliate site with generic order pages.

    I have started a decorating site which is my current career. I have a passion about it but it seems to be such a saturated niche. I am trying to figure out an angle to use that will make my site unique but its tough and I guess I do not have as much imagination as I thought. But my question is - what is the best way to determine if a niche is worth building a web world around - or is this info too sacred?

    Just out of curiosity - how big a jump is it to go from pr 4 to pr 5. I was pretty excited when my site got a pr of 4 but I imagine getting to 5 is going to take alot more effort.

    Thanks to all who offer to help those of us new to this arena.

    Hey Last Hope....

    I would stick with very targeted content sites, that was your not stuck with the same domain for a huge amount of time .... with a niche market type site you can spend a month ... create a ton of pages and then "be done with it".

    I know many people here will say a site is "never" done ... and sure I touch up on my work from time to time ... but over all once I am finished with the "frontend" of building a new site it is then "finished".

    Valerie,

    A white label affiliate site never "really" links to a "visible" merchant but instead the merchant offers a very plain generic looking order page. When you click on any buy link from your own site your taken to the generic order page.

    This gives your site the apprearnce of being the merchant store to visitors who are not too savy online (a huge portion of the online market).

    Cheers,

    I don't want to appear to be a merchant and i don't want to trick my visitors who "are not too savvy".

    Since it took me a long time to learn how to build a working website, I made the mistake of using yahoo, thinking they were bigger and better, and their building tools were easy, I found out I was just wasting time, and money, when i signed up with angelfire and tripod, they had the best templates, and verisign gave me an easier url, so if I earned 2 bucks, it would be an improvement, I also thought the alexa traffic graph was a sign I had more and more "browsers", but not buyers.
    I learned a lot from the forum, and thank you all. With my 2 bucks, years ago, I might have had a date with my wife, but that's too late.
    Thanx to all of you that helped.

    Hey Trust,

    Not trying to trick anyone ... simply as stated these types of sites tend to look very professional and apprear to be merchant sites.

    That is the bottom line ... White label sites work well for seo on a number of levels apprearing to be a merchant is just one area.

Google don't accept anyone with lycos, so try verisign for an easier url, you are not competing with affiliates, you are competing with the merchants, some pay a fortune on tv ads, and use a program that eliminates parasites, i had trouble with them for a year, somehow, they can not only divert your earnings, but change you ads to those "adult sites", I use ad aware, and it has quarantined over4,500 in 4 weeks,

    "If I had to start all over" is a funny (well not so funny) part of the question to me because it always seems like I'm starting over.

    I have a question. What about the legal ramifications of the user believing you are the merchant? Taks your rx plan for instance - what happens if someone orders a drug without seeing a doc and getting a scrip and subsequently dies or is hurt - they think you are the merchant so aren't you the first person looked to for a law suit. How do you protect yourself?

    I would like to take a stab at this, since I worked for a retail company that had pharmacies in all of their 2,000 plus stores,+
    first, the responsibility lies with who ever wrote the prescription,We had many cases when some customers thought if taking one every 12 hours would help, they would take one every 6 hours, the labels on each container are clear, the Super Market General Corp. had a very large legal department for many things, one was verify how the drug was abused.Of course, there are cases when some pharmacy try to malke more, buy ordering more medicstion then they need, and sell them to anyone, off the books, eventual they are caught, the penalties for that are severe.There are also quacks that presribe heavier doses than required, I have a friend, that after her mother passed away, went to see a shrink, none of which I trust, and gave her heavy doses of tranquizers, contacting a lawyer, who wanted $20,000 up front didnt help, but every state has an AMA&lt; and they can investigate, and take the license away, this happened a year ago, my friend went into drug rehab, the shrink payed. It's not the fault of the supplier, usaully.

    Where are some good places to buy sites, if I can ask. I have looked around for years and not found many sites that sell sites with content. Websitebroker was one, and Ebay has an occasional content site for sale, but not very many.
