Insane Authority

Last Update: January 16, 2018

I know this is not a huge milestone by any means, however it is a momentum milestone in my opinion. My partner and I started out site 17 days ago and we have 10 posts plus a static page with a 1900 word article. 4-5 of the posts have indexed as this point and I'm sure more will be indexing as time goes on.

My partner has a crazy obsession with becoming an authority in our first niche. The foundation of his obsession is 100 blog posts (900-1200 words each) on various topics on internet marketing for beginners. He has thrown out an insane goal of 4-5 new posts every week. Not only that but he is also going to do 3-5 comment exchanges for every post.

I even challenged him by saying he needs to come up with a list for 50 ideas to plan it out just to see if this would delay him. In less than 10 minutes these ideas were in my inbox:

He stopped at one more than the number i set for him just to spite me :)

Place your votes now on how many total posts he will get done by the 31st (14 days) as well as do you think he will burn out before hitting the 100 goal.

Also out of the topics above which ones interest you so i can give him feed back on ones that everyone here finds interesting.

Knowing Dan he when he locks on to something his irish side takes over. He does not quit until he far surpasses his goal.

Can I just ask where you are getting your information from? It can take a while to become an expert, and unless you've actually done it yourself, it's only a book report. If you have done it yourself, then you are speaking from a position of knowledge and authority about what works and it will shine through in your writing.

information about what?

You are right that it can take a while to become an expert, however you need experience and being able to speak from experience. My business partner is actually doing what he is writing about prior to writing it so he can speak from experience.

On experience it doesn't take a while to try different things and learn from trial and error. If you are failing then chances are you aren't succeeding.

Dan is a quick study though. You could actually consider him almost authority status on Twitter. He really starting diving into it early december and in less than 2 months he has grown to almost 1700 targeted followers in his niche and is driving traffic to our site.
He has also been invited to guest post on how he is using advanced search to drive additional traffic. They reached out to him, not the other way around. Would they ask him to guest post if he was writing book reports?

I got a little overwhelmed by just reading the list, but all are very good topics.

As for what interests me, I couldn’t even begin to tell you because I am totally new to all of this. If I had to choose though it would be anything to do with Pinterest (which I absolutely love) and Facebook ( which I use quite often).

It's all relational Barry. I'm closing in on 1400 WA posts. Aiming for content rather than word count!

I know. Dan typically delivers solid content, however his posts are usually 600-700 words to start. I work with him to get it up to 900 as i thought that is the optimal length for rankings. Am i wrong on this?

I don't think it makes much difference in the WA algorithm.

I think you misunderstood. I'm referring to article posts on our website not in WA.
