[PLAN] I want to launch 100 Amazon sites - would like to hear some opinions!
I have a list of 100 "best ...." keywords perfectly suitable for Amazon, cause of the site approach it will probably be a churn & burn method, although not sure.
My classification of churn & burn: A site that lasts shorter then 6 months.
Somehow I have a feeling these sites would last about 6 months.
About the websites
It will be real basic sites:
- 7 product reviews
- 1 comparison page
- 1 category optimized for the ".... reviews" variant
- 1 best page that features the 7 products in short
- 1 contact page
- 1 about page
- 1 terms of service page
- 1 disclaimer page
So 14 pages in total.
Only 3 pages will be monetized:
- the best list, static homepage
- the category page
- the comparison page
The 7 product reviews will link to the comparison and best page.
The best page will get most of the traffic anyway and I found out those convert awesomely well so all link juice is funnelled that way.
Total costs $65,-
- 7 review articles $35
- best page (1000 words) $10
- comparison page, 100 words intro content and script so $1
- category, 500 words content added $5
- contact / about page few 100 words so let's say $4
You could classify this as a micro niche site but cause of the "smart" format it will probably be able to survive Panda updates (not 100% sure though). My 25-40 page sites fare well btw, which are somewhat similar in setup.
About the link building
I am not too sure about this so would like to hear some opinions from others.
The thing is that to keep lasting rankings a site needs permanent link juice (pagerank), in other words preferably perm homepage links from high PR domains.
However if this turns out into a churn & burn festival then it makes no sense to place perm homepage links as it would only be a waste of resources, sure I own the network so it's never a waste as I can always remove/replace but anyway.
The second option would be too setup a separate low budget network for this project of let's say 100 sites, and use tools like RankWyz to build links in a spun way. I think this still works to a certain degree, just a lower chance to last.
The money sites itself will all be based on the same theme to keep it easy for VA's and such and obvious I don't feel much to spam my whole network, linking out to 100 and the same sites, probably leaves huge footprints, especially cause the money sites will be hosted on a fixed number of IP's.
I'm determined to complete this project so comments like build an authority site are somewhat useless in this thread so stick to the topic please.
- What link building approach would you use?
- How long do you think those sites will last based on either perm homepage links or with a low budget spun network?
- Any other things that might be helpful to start of this project?
Not unimportant, I expect the sites to bring in $100/month at the very least per site, this is based on previous experience. So with 100 sites we're talking about $10k+/month, when using the spun network the costs remain extreme low, as in about $100/site so money back in the first month, however no idea how that will end.
With the perm homepage links strategy it go's like this, perm PR3 homepage link (20 OBL), purchase price $50 per domain (dropped), 100 words of content = $50/15+ $1,30 = $5,-, mostly I push 30 perm links and 30 roll off posts so that comes down to about $250,- total (site content included). Talking about $25.000,- investment here.
With the tiered network approach I would probably spend about $5000,- on domains + $10.000,- on the site building, so $15k/total. However I expect the rankings to come out lower then with the other approach.
Useful thoughts are more then welcome!
100 sites is the plan and so it shall be done
Do not get between a wombat and a chocolate biscuit; you will regret it dearly!
keep moving forward
