First let me answer some questions because judging from some of the comments I've seen you guys don't like to read long threads lol.
1.Do you need a blogger blog for this to work? the answer is no, I use blogger because I like it.
2.How long does it take these sites to start earning? 4 to 6 weeks but once I reach a hundred pages they make 100.00 plus a month, also you could go after 2 and 3 words in your niche and make more money.
3.Should I buy exact match domains? no , incorporate your main keyword in the name but keep in general like pet questions .com
4. What is my backlinking method? Here are some software the I own but barely use amr,seo link robot, auto comment bomb ,auto backlink bomb. I occasionally use these all together on my sites sparingly. Other times` will buy a fiverr gig, and on my last site I use matt laclear's article drip feed service.
Here is my last site
the psychiatric nurse practitioner I will never make a site like this again, I made so many mistakes it aint funny. If I wanted to spend a lot of time backlinking to the number one spot this site would be perfect, but for my method it's a failure. I said before that this particular site was different from my other 15, because I put actual exact match article titles as my first article instead of my usual long tail questions. I had plan on build this site in reverse by focusing on keywords with a couple thousand searches a month than adding the long tail.
This site has also prove my theory that a keyword such as psychiatric nurse practitioner with 2,400 exact local searches does not have enough searches to make a income on long tail alone.
Let me say that again , keywords with low search count will not make you money from long tail traffic alone.
Until this morning my original plan was to
step 1 build a site using the lowest competition keywords in that niche which also meant going after keywords with low local search count between 200 and 600 .
step 2 rank those low competition keywords only so I could get information from google analytics to make long tail articles, honestly I wouldn't call it long tail keywords because they are sentences not long tail keywords.
Last night while talking to my girlfriend I explained my theory that I can only make sites that rely on long tail traffic if they are centered around a very popular keyword.
Now out of nowhere this morning it hit me, that I had been doing this the wrong way ranking sites for low competition keywords just to get the google analytics was wrong.
Hello people can you say yahoo answers , I put in the keyword psychiatric nurse practitioner and guess how many questions came up, only 129 so building site out in hopes of making money on long tail traffic would never have happen, now lets put in a one word phrase like cats , guess how many questions there were 937273. Which lets me know that if I wanted to make a authority site on cats I could get all my post title from yahoo answers and with 937273 question to work with the skies the limit.
Basically go after keywords that are popular because that means plenty of people have questions on the matter. Don't worry about competition because
how many sites will have a post title like this "How many cats do you think a person can have before people start to question their mental health?" a actual
question from yahoo answers btw.
Also I hear people say why not just make 1000 word articles and try to rank for a bunch of keywords. Because 90 percent of my traffic comes from people typing in a question that is closely related to one of my post title not a snippet of a long article that may only be relevant in some small way.
Edit: Look for keywords that have at least 2500 results in yahoo answers I have put all the keywords I based my sites on into yahoo answers 2500 was the minimum.
This method is new to me I never used yahoo before this morning for this process, also please don't use the exact questions on yahoo, reword them so your title is similar but unique.
All my other sites fit this criteria but I never noticed I needed to build sites around keywords with a lot of traffic until now.
