    My 1 year business building log for 2011

    First and foremost if this is not allowed mods please feel free to delete it.
    Well this is inspired partly by Aquarezz's thread here
    Basically the purpose of this thread is I will try and update this thread once every 2 weeks with what I have been doing towards my online business and post the goals for the next 2 weeks, as well as post complications, things I have found a lot easier then what I thought they would be and just general things I find interesting like what my income from each site is at the time.

    At the moment I only have 1 website which is weknowtools.net the current goal for this is to get to 35-45 pages of content which I will write myself and I hope to have it all on within 3 weeks. I am hoping once this site is done to be at an average of $20 a day or more. After I have the tool site to the point I want it I plan on trying to build a much larger site but we can save all of that for another day.

    I am hoping this thread will help a lot with procrastination and will help me with having a guide sort of thing to follow as well as getting advice and guidance from other Net Builders.

    Don't forget to build some quality links to your site. Unique content will not bring you $20 / day. Maybe you will get some random adsense clicks, but not to much if you have low traffic.

    If you are promoting affiliate products, you may earn an average $20/day... but still need good organic traffic.

    Good luck and keep us updated with your progress!

    Thanks guys, I just hope I have done enough to write an interesting post every 2 weeks.

    Sorry I should have mentioned in the OP that I plan on doing plenty of link building. But the whole point of this thread is to go step by step by completing one large thing at a time which for the first two weeks is getting the site how I want it with enough content on it which will probably take about two weeks. Then after that I will make a post about what I plan on doing for link building etc...
    But thanks to both of you for picking up on that.

    I would also concentrate on getting links not to just your home page but to also those specific pages (deep links) on your site, as well.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    One quality keyword researched article be per week should be enough. In 2 years, you will have 100 articles.

    Spend the time building links. Set up web 2.0 accounts and promote the site.

    Also, modify your wordpress template, so that, it functions more as a cms and less as a blog platform.

    My suggestion is to create a plan using a Google Docs spreadsheet and share it with the public.

    Then you can have a time line with tasks (such as a Gantt chart), example:

    JISC infoNet - Gantt Chart Picture

    Then posts to the forum thread won't disrupt your plan items.

    Good luck with achieving your objectives, anyway.

    Deep links will likely be the only links I really concentrate on, I barley ever promote the front page much.

    While I can see your point about the article I personally believe as long as it is quality content the more the better. If I spent 30 minutes a day writing an article and then another 40 minutes promoting it, that would then become 365 articles in one year that have all had promotion done on them. Now this wouldn't be enough to get them to first place or anything but you could see which ones only need a little push and which ones will need quite a bit more. Plus you get the added bonus of the fact that the bigger the site the more authoritative it is.

    I am going to when it's done it should look something like this. iKnewIt - Questions and answers archive I don't think that looks much like a blog.

    I will have to think about this the point of this thread was supposed to be a basic plan that gets updated ever 2 weeks or so, so that there is no jumping ahead. And thanks

    The plan for the next 2 or 3 weeks is to get the site sorted out with about 40 pages of content, a logo and overall the site just looking good.
    But I don't think I will start with much of the content until about the second of Feb as that is when school starts and I have a few things I want to do these holidays.

    Also if any of you have a site that is relevant like automotive sites I might be able to put a link on my site for free later on.
