Building a monstrous blogging website with you and your friends.
I've been mulling over this idea for a while now and I've decided to come here to see what everyone thinks.
Now a lot of you here already know who I am, if you don't, I'm Razzy and I write a lot about SEO, Online Marketing, Search Engine Marketing, and pretty much anything that has to do with the birth of website to making money from that website
I've been talking to a few of my friends and I have a pretty cool idea that I'm going to share, because you can be part of it too
My idea is that I could set up a platform where we all register and start posting. You would get your own personal blog within the website but every page would be linked together somehow and your pages would be searchable from any other page on the website/monster blog. I hope that make sense lol
The beauty of this would be that everyone can create their own content and we could pull in traffic from hundreds of keywords within a short period of time. We can have a rating system that would rank certain posts higher than others based on views, likes, upvotes, etc. but it would have to be monitored a lot because people could game the system using software they create specifically for out new beastly monster blog platform
I would do a revenue share among all the members, even the people we don't know. This would encourage random users to come in and post quality content. The revenue would come from advertising space linked through BuySellAds, Adsense, or some other big media company. We would have to manage each post to make sure it's not a copy/paste job, but that shouldn't take too much in the beginning and we can automate this over time. We would have to set something up so that people posting a ton of great content would get a bigger share of the profits than someone who posts once and leaves forever. It wouldn't be too fair if someone posts 100 times a month and gets the same payout as someone who posts 1 time a year lol. Obviously I would have to keep enough in the account to cover hosting, but that shouldn't be too much since it's a newer website. When it gets bigger I wouldn't expect the server to cost more than $1,000 a month, unless we get (summons Donald Trumps voice) Huuuuuge!
I'm sure there is something out there like this, but the beauty of the search engines is that they love content. That means if there's competition, it won't matter too much because we can always post free content
The content wouldn't have to be from a specific niche, it could literally be anything which makes this idea extremely expandable
Has anyone else thought of something like this?
Is it possible to do or is this a far fetched idea?
