The Pay Per Call Business Model – Launch Site
Click here to go back to part 4: build sites.
Launch Site (SEO)
So by now you’ve got a bunch of sites up and ready to take over an entire county. If you’ve made it this far, with say 5 sites; you have a potential $1000+ a month income waiting to be realized. Typically a pay per lead site ranked on page one for its target keywords will generate at least $200/month in revenue.
However, with a leveraged network like this; each of the small city sites might make $200/month, but if you get the main site to rank for the most competitive county keyword/s, the main site alone can make $500 or $1000+ per month given enough time and the right client.
Once you’ve built your site, you need to get them on the first page of Google for their keywords. Sounds difficult, but the reality is SEO is fundamentally simple and physically straight forward. There is no learning curve unless you want to be a master; just a set of straight forward steps.
Step One: Release Your Sites To The Search Engines
To do this, go into the privacy settings of a site; and select “allow search engines to index this site”. Only do this for one site at a time. It’s a bad idea to launch and promote all sites simultaneously in the same niche. Why? Well if you launch the main county site and all of its sub-city sites at the time linking them to the county site; that sets off some alarm bells.
There isn’t any kind of Google algorithm that looks for people doing this; but it’s common sense to take a safety precaution. If a bunch of sites come online at the same time all linking to the same site all looking very similar to each-other; it looks like blatant manipulation/artificial link building.
Instead of launching all the sites at once, launch each one on separate days and wait a few weeks before linking them to the main county site. This will be more effective in terms of the SEO boost the county site will receive and will avoid leaving any potential footprints.
Step Two: Google Analytics And Webmaster Tools
Despite what many say, setting up Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools IS a good idea; as long as you’re not par-taking in serious black hat SEO. If you’re going to be spamming your sites with backlinks, you want Google to know as little as possible about your sites.
However if you’re building high quality local sites like this; it’s a great idea. Using the Gmail you created for each site, login to Google Analytics, add the site and verify the site. Do not add all the sites to one Gmail account, login to them individually.
Next, setup Google Webmaster Tools and verify the domains one by one. With Webmaster tools, you should take two extra steps: first submit your sitemap you generated with Google XML Sitemaps plugin. Second, go into settings and geo-target your domain to the United States (very simple to do).
With all this done; the only remaining step is to actually SEO your sites. Once SEO’d, you’re ready to take on clients and cash in on your efforts.
