WordPress Website Flipping

Apr 29 2009

The WordPress Website Flipping business model can work very well.

What is WordPress Website Flipping?
Website flipping is buying or building websites and then selling them.  You can build a WordPress Website (once you have hosting) for the price of buying the domain name.  You can purchase a domain name for less than $10 per year.

For a Domain you are going to keep I recommend buying the Domain for two years.  There is some evidence that you will rank better in the Search engines if you have more than twelve months left on your domain.  If you are buying a name to flip most people only buy the domain for one year.

Domain Naming for Worpress Website Flipping
NameCheap seems to be the new domain buying option for a lot of marketers and after you sell your site the name is easy to move to the buyer, they just have to open a free Namecheap account.  GoDaddy is easy to use also but there is a glitch in the GoDaddy contract.  Evidently some people have had their domains taken away from them by Godaddy after they were accused of Spamming. I do not know that to be true and I have not looked at the fine print in the GoDaddy terms.

WebHosts for WordPress Website Flipping

With most of the web hosts you can host 25 to 100 different WordPress blogs for the basic monthly fee.  I know with BlueHost you can host 100 wordpress domains for the basic price. With a WordPress website you need to have a MySQL Database for each site. I guess you can do more than one website on a database but it is way simpler if you just use one database per domain.

Lots of Web Hosts
There are a lot of highly rated webhosts. Here are some links to 1&1 and iPower. Both very highly rated web hosts.

With Bluehost you can host up to 100 WordPress blog/websites. They allow you to use up to 100 MySQL Databases. You need one one database for most Websites and two for some Websites.  It is possible to use one database for multiple websites but for simplicity sake I only build one WordPress blog on each database.  This website is hosted at BlueHost.

Free Domain With $6.95 Bluehost Hosting Package I buy all my domains from DomainCheap but I used the free one that comes with BlueHost.

Host unlimited domains + get up to 5 FREE domains with your 1&1 hosting account. Must see monthly hosting specials!

iPower offers the most complete Web Hosting Solution in the world.  #1 in the World at only $7.95/month – includes Free Domain

WordPress Authority Site

Apr 29 2009

What is a WordPress Authority Site?

Definition of an Authority site.  It is a site with a lot of content on a subject.  It is usually built over several years and on a fairly broad subject.  It will often have a couple of different monetization models.  Often it will promote several different affiliate programs and Google Adsense.  Many times it will also be used to promote a product that the owner of the site created or owns.


Keys to succeeding while building an Authority site.

1. The subject needs to be something that can keep your interest.

2.  The subject needs to be monetizeable  in a couple of ways.

3.  The project will probably last for years so make sure you are interested in the project.

4.  This probably should not be your first project.  You will learn a lot from building and promoting several other smaller sites first.  Building smaller affiliate sites and Google Adsense sites will start you on your way. An Authority site can grow from a project you started ???

Successful Authority site
How do you know when you are there?  When you put a search into Google and you get a double list of pages from your site at the top of the listing.

Internet Business Models with WordPress

Apr 29 2009

There are a lot of different internet business models.  I am a firm believer of in focusing on one model at a time.  One model can lead to another in time. Also a site can start out as a simple Adsense site and as you work on it through time it can become an authority site using several types of monetization.


Niche Adsense sites

Affiliate Marketing sites

Follow the Guru sites

Master Blog site.

Website Flipping.

Building an Authority site.

Building a Membership Site.

All of these can be built with WordPress.  You do not need to be a genius to build WordPress sites.  It is one of the most versatile, flexible easy to build Website and Blogging platforms.

WordPress Plugins are made for almost anything you want to do with a wesite.

There are a couple of criteria I use.

Does it need daily work on my part? I only want to work on things I can leave for a month or more and they will continue on.
Can it grow to something big?
Does it have several ways to monetize?
Does it help the buyer? Is it a product I believe in, if not then I will not promote it.
Does it have a continuity plan? Does it keep paying me over time or is it a one shot deal?

WordPress Niche Adsense Site Building Strategy

Apr 29 2009

Key Adsense Site Strategy Point
Build some pages on very high paying Keywords. Write articles on related keywords that are not as competitive and not as high paying. Then submit the cheaper keyword articles to article directories with links to your Expensive keyword pages.


Get traffic from less competitve keywords lower paying keywords to go to very high paying adwords pages.  The Google ads on the page will be relevant to the page, not the page from which the viewer was sent.

This sounds really simple but it is more thoughtful than first blush.

High paying keywords are usually very hard to get ranked for.  Use long tail words that are easy to get ranked for  and send the viewer to the higher paying related keyword page.

How do I figure out what is a high paying adsense keyword?  I use the free Google Keyword tool.  This tool is your friend.  Spend some time playing with all the different buttons and windows on the Google Keyword Tool.  Long term this will be time very well spent.

Google Keyword Tool Learning to Use this Very Powerful Free Tool

Apr 29 2009

The Google Keyword Tool is one of my favorite free tools.  With it you can get so much information about keywords and niches.

Search Google for “Google Keyword Tool” or follow this link to the Google Keyword Tool.  Put in a general phrase and then the captcha. I normally leave the “Use synonyms” checked.

Start with a basic search on “Credit Cards.”  Now let’s start playing with the tool.  In the Show/Hide columns window open and choose Estimated Avg CPC.  This is the setting I play with the most.  Now click on the top of one of the columns like Estimated Avg CPC.  This will reorganize by highest to lowest or lowest to highest.

I am looking for more expensive click keywords because I am going to build traffic to these pages and get clicks from the traffic.  If I was trying to buy traffic I would probably want to find cheaper keywords.

Dilemma –Usually it is really hard to get traffic to high paying keywords.

Newbie Niche Picking

Apr 29 2009

The old line ‘You can pick your Niche and you can pick your friends but don’t pick your friend’s Niche” is still true today.

The largest sticking point for many people is “What Niche?”

The proper niche to work in?
Very simple **Find one you can make money in.**

What about Passion for your Niche?  You are not going to marry it. Interest is important but Passion? Not needed.  If you start making good money in the niche you might become passionate.

What about Knowledge?  You can learn anything if you want.  The day job you have now, what did you know about it before you started?  “We teach best what we most need to learn” is an old quote from a book by Richard Bach.  I think if is quite appropriate.

Newbie Niche Picking Tips

Two Free Tools. Finding a profitable niche is very easy. The goal is finding keywords with high paying adsense words and not a ton of competition.

Tool #1  SEO for Firefox.  Firefox is the browser of choice for most internet marketers because of the ability to use plugins.  My favorite plugin is “SEO fro FIREFOX.”  If you have not already downloaded Firefox check out this page on SEO for Firefox.  It is very powerful and easy to use.

Tool #2  Google Keyword Tool.  This is a very powerful free tool for gathering information about potential niches.  I love this tool.  I have it open in a window most of the time.  Check out this primer on how to use the Google Keyword Tool.  Play with the tool click on all the buttons and open all the windows and try the different options.  This is a huge part of your online education.

Start your Newbie Niche Picking
Your first website might not be the Mona Lisa.  It is a learning process and the only way to get started is to make a decision and get started.

First put a general keyword into the Google Keyword tool.  Use an idea like Acne, web hosting, Pet Insurance, Xbox, Credit Cards, Mortgage, Vitamins, Playstation, LCD tv, Coach Handbags, World of Warcraft, Cell Phones, Life Insurance, Weight Loss, Diet Pills, Hoodia, Spyware, Virus software, Link building Software, Baby Strollers, Baby Cribs,  and the list goes on and on.

click on the Show/Hide and show the “EST Ave CPC”.  I like to organize by this column from highest to lowest.  Click on the title of of the category and the words will be arranged by that category.  Then I start grabbing keywords with 1500 to 6000 monthly search volume.  The $ amount is up to you but I stick to keywords with the potential of over $4.  Get a list of 50 of these words.

Now put them into a Google Search one at a time and evaluate the first 10 results.  You want to be able to get into the top ten with the keyword if you are going to get any traffic to your site.  There are several ways to evaluate the top ten results.

My method is to look at the PR, Y! and Y! page for each of the top ten.  You will get a feel as to if you can break into this group.  High PR and large Y! but zero or very few Y! Page is an indication you might be able to get into the top ten.

Another Simple Evaluation method is to add the PR of all ten webpages from your search results together and divide by 10.  If this number is over 3.0 move on.  I believe this is a good process also.

You want at least 50 keywords in your list to work on.  Organize them by most profitable at the top.

Use one of the highest paying, highest traffic keywords as the Keyword for the website and include it in the title of your site.

Simple, now get a Domain Name, Hosting and get started building your site.

Hosting Tips for building WordPress Websites
There are a lot of good hosts out there.  For a couple of years I used Googlepages free hosting.  I have had some good results from this but then Google decided to eliminate the Googlepages program.  I have hundreds of hours in a project that got dumped.  I will always remember to work on my own projects on my own space.  The moral of the story is Get web hosting.  Work mainly on what you own.

Since WordPress has become such a popular basis to build blogs and websites most of the web hosts are set up to make it very easy for you to install WordPress on you hosting.

Bluehost.com Web Hosting $6.95

With Bluehost you to use up to 100 MySQL Databases. You need one WordPress Websites and two for some Websites.  It is possible to use one database for more than one website but that is beyond me at this point.

Free Domain With $6.95 Bluehost Hosting Package I buy all my domains from DomainCheap but I used the free one that comes with BlueHost.

I have set up blogs and websites on my hosting for friends.  It makes it really easy, I make them buy a domain name and let them use my hosting for free.  This is an eazy inexpensive way for friends to get into the website building world.
