Fast Track Curation Success Blueprint

1. Foundation

Idea (niche or topic)

niche is not always the best approach

something you have some access to content or at least ideas

Create content by recording voice and paying fiverr to transcribe

have someone to create static content, pay for content, someone in company

Ultimately you want to know about the topic so you can curate intelligently and interestingly.

Research

Google Keyword Tool, short - long tail keywords, monthly search volume, competition for that keyword, export list of keywords, select 5-10 long tail keywords for static article titles and category names

Competition in SERPs, Alexa, Quantcast, Backlinkwatch

Availability of News, Google Alerts, Other sources

Possible products or affiliate offers, Clickbank, Amazon, WSO/FSOs

2. Implementation

domain name

research - Google keyword tool, see what the name means to Google

research used domains - software is best

try to find high PR used domain with .edu backlinks and other backlinks

Web Hosting

start with small, upgradable account from a reputable larger company, reason being that their infrastructure is standardized and you have good support.

When you start getting more traffic you can upgrade your bandwidth if necessary.

we recommend standard LAMP - Linux Apache MySql PHP

Self managed dedicated hosting is great too with the right package.

Platform: Wordpress

standard install

settings: turn off comments, set permalinks to postname, discourage search engines at first, set blog name and tagline

select and configure theme

configure a few plugins, link juice keeper, spyder spanker, Google xml sitemaps, auto seo tags

test with Web Dimensions software

Create your keyword based category structure, add your static content, set up up target blog post page to receive content from Web Dimensions software

create your required pages and contact form

do not attempt to monetize or solicit opt-ins at this point - keep the blog clean, only interesting things for viewers

once the blog is complete, looking good, and ready to receive posts, un-check "discourage search engines" and save, then paste in the large list of ping servers and save them. Then start Google XML sitemaps

Begin daily curation
