    New health niche site coming along nicely. Only one month old but I “cheated” and started with an aged (1996) auction domain from a old hospital website. So far I’ve added 50k words of content and have built around 6 guest posts to my target pages. Building out a second site on a stronger aged auction domain (1995) too. Any questions feel free to ask.

    Nice, how many backlinks did the previous domain had? (Root domain)

      AHREFS is showing 60 fresh RD but Majestic over 100. Has a strong .gov link and a few other very high quality links from hospitals etc.

      Sounds solid. Was the domain indexed when you bought it? I guess you paid at least $500?

    Who sells these legit and spam-free old domains on auction?

    • #5356

      Belinda Marsh
      Member

      You can do the research yourself, go to Go Daddy and find an auction domain and use MOZ or SemRush or Ahref and check the backlinks and DA/PA.

      If you are new I don’t recommend buying an aged domain.

    • #5366

      Peter Campbell
      Member

      Have a solid site, have traffic coming too it and create a following.

      People dont just guest post on random sites that are not ranking.

      You need to be ranking well and have great content to even get looked at when people want to guest post on your site.

    1.) How are you adding content in such a short amount of time?
    2.) Quality writers are usually 40-70$+ per 1000 words, are you using spun content? Cheap writers? Bulk orders?
    3.) How are you coming up with the topics per article?

    • #5371

      William Yarwood
      Member

      I’m getting 1000 word articles for $18. I sometimes tidy up the articles but I’m happy with the content. I put a lot more effort into the “review” pages though as the copy needs to be spot on for these.

      Spun means reused yes, but you “spin” the original content by substituting words and phrases to create original content. Just google “article spinner” and you’ll find plenty of information.

    Syed Shah
    Member

    1. 50k words in a month is quite easy to do if you are focused.

    2. Never use spun content for your main site, that is just silly and asking Google not to rank you.

    As for writers you can get some decent ones for cheaper then that and if you guide them in the right direction they can be great.

    3. There are lots of sites and tools that will help you create topics, answerthepublic, keywords everywhere, Google Suggestions, Quora Questions, Forums, Google Trends, YouTube Trends, Instagram Trends… It goes On.

    • #5413

      Claire Wallace
      Member

      Thanks mate. I really think it is both. The domain has never dropped from index since 1996 and the links I’ve added are all from genuine niche relevant sites receiving organic traffic. I’ve never ranked a site this fast though either. I don’t normally start with an aged auction domain but will be going forward.

    • #5414

      Would you mind dropping me the info about the broker and stuff? I really want to attempt the use of an aged domain.. and doing the research myself is kinda inconclusive (when it comes to past penalties and such).

    Fantastic work! Your work is inspirational as I’ve seen you smash it with some of you’re posts. A question tho, when getting back links from guest posts, do you try focus them on your home page or different inner pages and articles?

    • #5419

      Jenny Ting
      Member

      Thanks Saj! Yes, with guest posts I’m usually focusing on blog posts and product review pages (my money pages). I try and limit spend to $50 or under per guest post but will pay more for a really high quality guest post.

    Did you find your writer(s) on Upwork? Philippines? $18 for 1,000 words is something I have never been able to find unless the articles are sh*t.

    • #5422

      Keith Millar
      Member

      Yeah they’re from Philippines but I’m happy with the quality. I just tweak it where required. Not siloing really as the site is built around “one problem” and one product which solves “that problem”. I’m adding supporting pages which I’m linking to my main pages though.

      It really depends on how much you can sweet talk them. I can get guest posts down to the low double digits.
      But again it depends how you speak and connect with each potential site/creator.

      Can’t we get our guest post published in Good sites without paying them?

    • #5430

      Debra Fuller
      Member

      You could yes, Make an awesome piece of content or Infograph or Video. Something that their visitors would love! But it has to be unique and different.

      Otherwise most of the time you pay them for a guest post or just a back-link in one of their existing articles.

      Its cheaper to ask for a back-link in one of their existing articles, because all they have to do is edit a piece of content and throw your link it. This is something I always try go for.

      Then you have the guest post. So you pay $50 for a solid 1200 word article, send it to them they like it. You then ask how much for it to be a guest post on their site. They give you a number.

      Why do this, they get more content up on their site, they rank for that content, they get PAID for it all while giving their visitors something to read and learn from.

      It’s really a win win.

    Be careful with PBN Rental’s. You have no clue what else they are linking too and most of the time they are just crappy sites with all types of content.

    I recommend if you want to do any PBN setup build your own network. Start with a few sites, some decent content wait a bit and then link to your money site.

    Or keep smashing the outreach for your Guest Posting.

      Hi, I purchased the domain for US$250.00. It was secured by a broker at auction and was first registered in 1996. It has some good links behind it and is nicely aged. I’m up against strong competition though and many of my competitors are ranking with around 20 PBN links.

    • #5461

      Stephen Dalby
      Member

      Also do remember you won’t see every single link back to a website. You can hide links as well from tools like AHRef and SEMRush, MOZ etc.

      Strong Guest Posts should knock them PBN links out. Really depends how powerful each PBN is and how diverse it is.

    • #5462

      Peter Cronin

    Don’t waste time on auction domains, domains that change their content significantly loose all age power. Now it’s not the domain age that matters, but the “CTR Age” that matters. It’s 2018 buddy.

      “Domains that change their content significantly loose all age power”

      That’s why you would select a domain that is in the same topic/niche?

      I’ve just had a look and I have secured 17 guest posts and the vast majority have included a link to my main target blog post. Only one link to my review page. It’s important to keep in mind that I’ve used an auction domain with a decent amount of existing branded home page links. I wouldn’t use the same strategy for a new domain. All of the guest posts are from sites with genuine organic traffic too.

    Love the journal buddy and glad you’re seeing some good results- but maybe do less frequent updates instead of daily updates. It’s starting to look like you’re just trying to bump your post to the top daily.

    Keep up the hustle though, you’re doing great!

    Hi guys, going forward I will only be providing a weekly update every Monday. I’m now focusing on links to my main review page to see if I can reach page 1 this month (currently #15). Traffic is increasing nicely and the site is gaining keywords daily.

    Anything else I should be focusing on? Was thinking of CRO but too early? 37 clicks of offer last month but no conversions yet.

      I haven’t gone through all comments but are you also focusing on social media? Building a following, getting traffic from other sources other than seo and maybe even video (you can outsource this or do simple PowerPoint/slide videos and also link back to content).

      With a new site I normally try get a sale within 100 affiliate clicks – if I don’t, I optimise or go over wording to make sure my content flows with the offer I’m promoting.

      You can also try optimising to get higher ctr on your affiliate links over time as well – things like link colour, placement, wording you use to link out or even play around with buttons. Tell people to click your links – ‘ *Click here to read all the testimonials* about xyz, Greg’s story was just like mine and that’s what inspired me to buy’

      In between the * I would link to offer (as long as it flows and there are testimonials).

      But yeah, don’t be scared to tweak for conversions. Going great by the way – you will get there, just keep consistent and test/tweak over time.

      Thanks mate, really appreciate your input. I will start to look into social media now as I only have the basic profiles setup. The specific niche is a bit tricky with social media though. A video could work well though. I will keep up the link building and will get more content up too. Just took delivery of some very strong guest posts so will see what impact they have too. I know there is good $$$ to be made in this niche and I’m hoping to pay for my wedding in Feb from affiliate commissions.

      Bounce rate is a little high at over 80% – may be worth trying to keep people on the site longer. – Also page views – may be worth trying get people to click on to other pages to increase page views per session – that should lower bounce rate along with it I think.

      All depends – most of my niche sites are over 80% and that’s because they bounce to my affiliate link.

    Will continue with finding guest post opportunities and will start to focus on building links to supporting articles. Will need some stronger links to the main review page too as many competitors are using reasonably strong PBN links.

    The traffic growth has really surprised me. I think the key was the auction domain was very niche relevant. Also I’ve built nearly 20 quality niche relevant links which has made the site “pop”.

      Frustratingly not yet… around 200 clicks through to the offer but no sales. I’m in talks with my affiliate manager to compare how my sites conversion rate is in comparison to my competitors. Probably need to achieve top 3 rankings for sales really kick off.
