Since Accountability is one of my keys to success, and also because I am spending an increasing amount of time on developing this community and less time on my sites themselves, I’d like to make some goals for July that I will be accountable to you all for. Here are those goals:
I’d like to setup 100 new sites in the next 19 days. Following my core business values, I will edit the way I do these sites slightly, in that I will be using Google+ authors and the rel=author tag on the mini-sites themselves as well as the sites that linkbuild them. I will start recording income reports for these sites and any new sites going forward.
To further segment and experiment, I’d like to develop a group of 10 sites based on expired domains as niche Adsense sites. My curiosity has overcome my moral code and some of these will have nothing to do with the niche they were in before, while others will be fairly closely related to their niche. For both of these groups, I will not link build them at all. Because I am not link building them, I feel confident enough to use these domains as a case study and publish results on them (including sharing the actual domain names), as this won’t expose my network to the public. So stay tuned for weekly updates on these sites. I may post them here and/or in other places such as warriorforum or other blogs, not sure yet.
Another 30 of those sites will be a combination of new portal sites for my furniture business, and portal sites for another product-based business I am just starting up that will be purely based on Google traffic. I would like to get the product in (already ordered from China), do some 3d renders and get my money site up and fulfillment organized during July, but a lot of that depends on a partner so I can’t be totally accountable for this.
The remaining 60 sites will be standard microniche sites, link built from my existing private blog network, with the changes I had mentioned above. I will not show the domain names for these sites for obvious reasons, but will give weekly updates and income reports, mainly so I can be accountable to you all, and so you can see the process unfold.
Aside from the 10 expired domains that will become niche adsense sites, I would also like to pick up 50 premium+4 or better expired domains, to further expand my own network.
Introducing Josh the Intern
A reader named Josh approached me, and we got talking about training and access to my tools. I had told him that I was considering offering some kind of private training with access to all my tools, but was very hesitant about the time constraints it might put on me. He offered to be a 30 day trial case and was serious enough to offer a down-payment and share profits on the sites he develops in this time. After a long discussion about the potential risks and whether it would be a good fit, we started. His first day was Monday July 9.
I’ve asked him to also make a goal for July, and to followup each week with updates on how he’s doing, within the same post that include my updates.
His goals are to find and develop 25 expired domains and launch 75 new adsense sites this month (22 days total). He will then have another 8 days to find and develop another 25 expired domains and launch 75 more Adsense sites, for a total of 50 expired domains and 150 micro niche sites.
A bit of a background – Josh will be working 3 hours a day as he also holds a full-time job (as well as 3 kids). He has been studying this for the last couple months, and has no other computing background. In that time he has made about half a dozen micro-niche sites before but has never earned income. I think he’s a perfect candidate to test whether a smart, hard-working guy with a grip on the fundamentals can profit from this system.
Wish him luck!
