In this series of articles, I will be demonstrating the processes I use for building a website from the ground up, optimising it for search engines and eventually monetizing or selling it.
This will be a complete case study from buying the domain to eventually selling the website.
This is actually a bit of a challenge for me because I suffer from ‘shiny object syndrome’ and although right now I am pumped up to see this project through to the end there’s a good chance I will get distracted by something new. So, no guarantees, but I will do my best to get to the end.
I’m also risking my reputation a little bit. Some projects I work on just don’t work out the way I originally anticipated. It’s just part of the job, but if this one doesn’t work out then it will obviously look bad on me. I tend to get more hits than misses but if this turns out to be a miss, please don’t be too hard on me.
So let’s get started. The links are chronological and go to each stage of the project.
- Pick niche, get expired domain
- Keyword research and content plan
- Content creation
