A Complete, Step-By-Step System To Starting & Growing Profitable Affiliate & Authority Sites
It’s easy to look back at how quickly you could build, rank and profit from authority sites a few years ago. You may even feel disheartened by today’s ‘competitive’ landscape.
Yes, the barrier to entry is higher in 2021. No doubt about it. But the truth is, this space is STILL very much in its infancy and MOST people just haven’t caught onto the authority site business model… yet.
If you’re reading this now, you already have an unfair advantage. You have a chance to leapfrog 99.9% of the population and build something that will pay dividends for years to come.
I’m talking about online properties that have the potential to generate consistent 4, 5 or 6-figures per month. Imagine if you could finally quit your job, and start down the path to a multi-million dollar exit.
We’ve barely even scratched the surface of what’s possible with authority sites. Though we do know that it’s those who take action today who will be in a position to capitalize on this (still very much untapped) opportunity.

However, Building Them Is A HUGE Challenge For Beginners
Market Research: If you choose the wrong market, your site will be guaranteed to fail. This first stage is the single most important part of any authority site, and the one that most people get wrong.
Keyword Research: Picking the right tool is just the first step. How to use it effectively to uncover the right kinds of keywords to build a profitable site is a whole other challenge.
Tech Site Setup: There are millions of tools, plugins and themes nowadays. With so many to choose from, it’s difficult to choose the right one. Slow, clunky and out of date technology will kill your rankings.
Design & Branding: Getting hung up on your fonts? Not keen on your color scheme? What should be a quick decision can slow you down. The worst part? Designing a great looking site is easier than you think.
Content Creation: It’s not as easy as just writing about a topic. Your content needs to appeal to both readers AND Google. Most people waste a huge amount of time writing content destined to fail.
Link Building: Your site won’t rank without links. It’s no secret, link building is hard. Scaling true white hat link building is even more difficult. There are severe penalties for doing it wrong.
Hiring & Outsourcing: You don’t want to be doing all the work yourself forever. Hiring the right people online is tricky. Outsourcing, if done incorrectly, can be a costly mistake for any authority site.
Monetization: This is why you’re doing this in the first place, right? To make money. We’re always amazed by how many authority sites neglect proven monetization strategies that are easy to implement.
Analytics & Tracking: You need to set up the right tracking tools to keep tabs on the growth of your business and understand which areas need your focus & attention. Can you say “technical nightmare?”
We Internally Built And Refined A Proven, Systematic Approach To Consistently Grow Successful Sites
At Authority Hacker, we like to put our money where our mouth is.
We have built several high authority sites in the past that have done great and I could spend the next 500 words bragging about it but how would that help you?
No, we decided to put ourselves in the shoes of our followers.
People starting from scratch with no staff, no site, no brand and trying to make it in the wild west that is the internet today.
So at the end of 2018, following the first-ever reveal of our method, we decided to start a brand new site from a $10 domain that would follow our own advice to the letter.
We were essentially starting a new brand alongside the first ever Authority Hacker customers to see what they saw, feel what they felt, and understand what we maybe did not understand at the time.
This was the only way to be sure we were not washed out and full of sh*t like most of the industry is (it’s really important for us).
And most importantly, it was the only way to see if YOU can actually build a 6 – 7 figure business using the same tactics we have used to make many other sites successful.
So we went ahead and grinded that domain working on all the points mentioned above.
Market research , keyword research, site setup, branding, building a content team, building links to the content and monetizing the traffic that was quickly growing.
It took several months of hard work and it wasn’t easy every day.
But well, it looks like we still got it in 2021, because only a short year after buying that $10 domain, not only did the site already generate 6 figure in revenue.
But we also sold it for another very comfortable 6 figure amount (unfortunately, I can’t legally disclose the exact amount.)
