Do you have your goals and resolutions for the new year?
A couple of my goals are to launch a new site in January and hire my 1st virtual assistant.
I originally wasn't going to start a new site, but as I kept researching keywords for this new topic for a current site, I saw the sheer size of it that I decided to put it on a separate domain.
One main reason is I wanted to spread the risk. Yes, I'll be starting from scratch with authority, but I also don't want to have too many eggs in one basket with Google's core updates throughout the year. I've been looking at small niche sites to potentially acquire and 301 to the new domain to help build authority. It's not a priority, but a nice to have if I can find a good site.
I'm also going to look for a VA to offload tasks to. I've been doing everything myself and I've seen more and more things fall through the cracks the last couple of months. Content deliveries from writers are now sitting weeks for me to format and publish, rather than hours or days.
Even though earnings have been great the last couple of months, I'm not looking to spend extravagantly because I'm expecting a Q1 dip.
Ok, now to the good stuff below with various links. There's a lot of good links this week that will help you build a solid foundation for your sites.
If you're planning to build a new affiliate website or wanting to optimize your current site, you'll want to spend some time watching and reading.
I hope that everyone has an amazing 2021!
