The Blog Content Strategy That Builds Traffic, Attracts Links, And Crushes Competitive Niches

By Chris Lee 75 comments

A VERY LONG DISCLAIMER: This content plan is for those who are willing to invest the time, money, and effort into building a premium content business. This isn’t a guide on how to put up something quickly and make money as fast as you can by taking short cuts and getting by on “just enough” work. This isn’t a guide on how to put up a $100/month site, or even a $1000/month site. If you’re looking for that, you’re going to waste your time reading this, and you don’t even really need to get into a competitive niche in the first place. This is an in-depth guide on how to build an online publication with the goal of possibly selling it for 7-figures in the future. To do that, we need to do things a little bit differently. Everything about your new site/brand has to be of premium quality – especially content. You need to build a strong brand, grow the right (targeted) audience of readers (and customers), and have the potential to be scaled to multiple times your size given additional resources. If that’s something that interests you, continue reading… 🙂

This post is written by Rob Palmer, one of my top students from The Niche Site Course.

This is the story of how I turned an investment of a few hundred dollars into over $100,000 of consultancy work – and got to work with one of the most famous people in the world as a result.

Before I get into the story, though, let me make it clear that I have no connection to Chris or RankXL except as a satisfied customer.

How To Get Powerful Backlinks From Sites That Seem Impossible To Build Links On

By Chris Lee 102 comments

monoflat_icons_124If you’re an SEO, you know that it’s almost impossible to get links on these types of websites:

  • EDU sites
  • Career sites and job boards
  • Government sites
  • Organizations
  • Leagues
  • Associations
  • Websites of big companies and corporations

They usually have massive link profiles, and getting a single link can really affect your site’s search traffic.

But it’s seemingly impossible to consistently get links from these kinds of sites, especially for free.

They have a lot of gatekeepers, there aren’t many link building opportunities, and they are very careful about who they link out to.

Well recently, I’ve been trying out something new, and it’s been working like gangbusters 🙂

And today, I’m going to do a quick write-up to teach you exactly how you can copy it for your own sites.
