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 2023. No doubt about it.

But the truth is, this space is STILL full of opportunities.

Every day, people like you and me are using the authority site model to better their lives in ways no other career path can do for them.

and then a few years later…

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 a site that can potentially generate 4, 5, or even 6 figures monthly.

How would your life change if you were able to build such an asset and quit your job?

Or if you were able to sell a site and buy your dream home as a result of that sale?

We’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible with authority sites.

Though we know that those who take action today will be in a position to capitalize on this (still very much untapped) opportunity.

But Building Authority Sites Is
A Huge Challenge For Beginners

Building a successful site requires you to get good at many skills, such as…

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

While picking the right tool is the first challenge for beginners, Knowing how to use it effectively to uncover the right keywords is where more people fail at in their new site journey.

Tech Site Setup

There are millions of tools, plugins, and themes nowadays. With so many choices, it’s difficult to pick the right one. Slow, clunky, and out-of-date technology will kill your rankings.

Design & Branding

Getting hung up on your fonts or color scheme? What should be a quick decision can slow you down. And 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. And 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 the most costly mistake for any authority site.


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 Built And Refined A Proven,
Systematic Approach
To Consistently
Grow Successful Sites

We’ve shared many of our stories about building these sites on the blog, the podcast, interviews, and more.

While building many authority sites in multiple niches over the years, we’ve been fortunate to get enough success and make it our full-time job.

But our past success is of little use to someone who is on the outside looking in wanting to join this industry.

The real question you probably have about all these case studies is:

  • Will this stuff work today?
  • Are the tactics used in these case studies outdated?
  • Can this be replicated again and again?

These are fair questions. And rather than writing 500 words trying to convince people, we put ourselves in your shoes regularly.

We start brand new sites on $10 domains, apply the tactics we know have worked for us, and see if they still work today with a live case study.

We did this in 2019 when we started a software review site in one of the most competitive affiliate niches out there.

We applied all our known systems — market research, keyword research, site setup, branding, team building, content, link building, and monetization.

We even wrote a full case study blog post giving all the details

It was a bit of a grind, but it was essential for us to make sure we were not washed out and full of sh*t like most of the industry.

18 months of hard work later, the site we started on a $10 domain was generating 6-figure revenue per year and ranking for some wildly competitive keywords.

Monthly revenue growth of our case study site.
Monthly revenue growth of our case study site.

Shortly after, we sold it for a very comfortable mid-6 figure amount (though unfortunately, I can’t legally disclose the exact amount.)

We did it again in 2020 when we took an old abandoned golf site and applied our updated processes from the last project.

Again, it took some time and grunt work to get the site back in shape with new content, links, technical fixes, and so on.

But Google rewarded us with fast-growing traffic. And with that, the revenue skyrocketed to mid-5 figures per year.

This allowed us to once again, sell the site for 6 figures after about 18 months it.

We used this opportunity to try new things, take notes and update our processes to ensure we keep building competitive websites.

And we did it again in 2023 where we documented another case study sold for 6 figures starting, this time, from an expired domain.

So, I guess the answer to the original question, “does this stuff still work, and can it be repeated?” is a resounding yes. And we’re regularly walking the talk to prove it.

While working on each of these test sites, we experimented, tested, and documented all the tactics we used.

Then we put them inside a complete video training about starting new authority sites even if you’ve never done it before:

🇬🇧 Charlie Kelly

Mc Donalds Reject Turns Website Prodigy

Charlie is from Fleet, England. He went to university but didn’t take it seriously, leading him to work 12 hours a day in a hotel, feeling pretty miserable.

That is until he took the authority site system and poured his heart into it.

It took a while, but his site really took off, and he achieved job replacement income.

An agency also took notice and gave him a partnership to run their link building. He now uses that money to grow even more sites while traveling the world.

Today, Charlie lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand making 5 figures per month running his sites.

Build Your Site Along With Ours


Unlike other courses, we actually show you how it’s done by BUILDING a real, live authority site using the exact system we teach in the course.

This case study is exclusive to our course members and not shared or talked about in our free content.

We strive to be as actionable as possible and anchored in the reality of building sites when we train students. That’s why you’ll see us do real work, building a real site. No boring Powerpoint presentations (Ughh, no thanks!).

We’ve recorded EVERY step of the process so you can follow along and implement everything we do as we do it. Seriously — it doesn’t get any more practical than this.

Plus, it makes the course more fun and interesting to see the site come together and then explore it in your browser.

This “over the shoulder” teaching method got The Authority Site System to become the highest-rated affiliate training according to Ebizfacts and their many reviewers.

🇺🇸 David Lewis

Ex Startup Employee Now Makes 6 Figures / Year

David is an ambitious guy. From day 1, his goal was to reach 5-figure per month with his Authority Site System website.

He’s a young dad with a wife and kid to look after, so he didn’t want to waste time and was looking for a proven system he could follow and execute.

He religiously applied the lessons in the Authority Site System and wrote 50 articles for his brand new site before looking to outsource content.

He then started building links following the exact tactics taught in the course and managed to land 298 linking root domains by month 12.

Today David works full-time on his projects, and by month 18, he exceeded his goal by generating $11,000 in just 30 days.

Get Results Faster Than Others


To make it as easy as possible for you, we’ve built templates for literally every part of the training. Use these to replicate exactly what we are doing on screen.

These templates cover niche research, design, link building, and even full blog content templates. Need to make a product review, an epic roundup post, or a how-to article? There is a template for everything!

Our templates not only save you HOURS of time which means most of our members get results faster due to these time savings, but they also ensure you build your site exactly the way we build ours. This prevents a lot of mistakes and helps you stay on track.

  • Keyword Research Spreadsheets

🇨🇦 Chris Sisco

10x Website Results With The Authority Site System

Chris started building sites on his own 3 to 4 years before joining the program and managed to hit a respectable $3,000 – $4,000 per month.

But joining The Authority Site System allowed him to 10x his results by learning about building systems, processes, and more efficient ways to create content and link building.

Nowadays, Chris’ site ranges between $15,000 and $30,000 in revenue per month, and he couldn’t be happier about his decision to join the training.

Focus on Taking Action


Many beginners struggle with staying focused on their projects and knowing what to do next.

The Authority Site System solves both these problems by giving you an A-Z linear to-do list. Now you can focus on doing and making progress rather than procrastinating.

Think of it as an advent calendar. You get to open a flap each day containing a video, written lesson, and set of templates you can use to carry out a specific task.

And because each task is broken down into easy and quick actions that you can usually get done in less than 30 minutes, it gives you a real sense of progress with your goal.

When you’re done with your current task, just fire up the task management system, open up the next item and keep going with the training.

All the tasks are carefully crafted to link to all the relevant lessons, templates, and resources you may need so you can focus on building your site while we got your back!

🇬🇧 Mike Beatty

From 2 Failed Sites to Huge Success

Mike is an international teacher living in Doha.

He tried to launch sites before, but the lack of focus made these projects fail, and he was back to square one.

He started his Authority Site System project in January 2021. He enjoyed the niche selection process in the training because it was so data-driven that it helped him rationalize his final niche choice.

The step-by-step building process also helped him get focused on tackling areas he hadn’t before, such as link building.

Long story short, 12 months later, Mike’s website made its first 5-figure per month site, and he’s now pushing new grounds with the project.

🇳🇿 Emily Johnstone

Young Mom 3x Her Traffic With Our Training

Emily is a young mom from New Zealand who had a website already but was struggling to make a good income from it.

Her main problem was that she was not very tech-oriented and many tools and tactics seemed daunting to implement.

Inside the training, she learned how to implement many of these previously intimidating tactics. Within a year, she 3xed her traffic and paid back for the course by implementing a single tactic she learned inside!

Our Team is Here To Help You!


If you are lost in all this content at any point in time, we have an absolute rockstar support team on 9 to 5 shifts to answer any questions about the course, billing, tactics, or anything else.

Unlike the competition that often chooses to outsource support to cheap overseas teams, we’ve made this one of our main priorities in the last few months, and our members are loving it.

All our support staff also works in marketing on our various ventures. They use the tactics you will find in The Authority Site System daily on our projects, and they can talk about it, not just send you a boilerplate message telling you they will look into it and thank you for your feedback.

These guys are the real deal, we trust them with our projects and money, so we also trust them to deliver a customer service level you have never seen before when purchasing online training.

Protect Yourself From Core Updates

Building websites in 2023 is nothing like building sites in 2019. Google has rolled out multiple core updates specifically focusing on E-E-A-T (Expertise, Experience, Authority, Trust).

And unlike what many people think, Google does NOT have an AI private investigator to determine how qualified your writers are.

It’s your job, as the site owner, to feed the correct information to the search engines.

The problem is almost all themes, site owners, and SEO plugins have NOT made the transition, resulting in significant drops in organic traffic.

This module is our practical answer to a common problem many sites face and includes many custom workflows you will only find in our member area to solve your E-E-A-T issues.

Some of what you’ll find inside this Blueprint:

How E-E-A-T works in the real world, not a theory lecture.

How to tie your site with trusted entities in the knowledge graph.

The exact pages you need to build on your site to grow Trust (and AI prompts to generate them).

Full Custom author pages templates you copy & paste to your site.

How to use Authors & SCHEMA to increase the Trust in your content.

How to write content that showcases Experience.

Already Saw Results With Our Training

🇱🇹 Artur Kudriavcev – Sold his first site for 6 figures

After three years of diligent work on his site, Arthur sold his website for a six-figure sum despite English not being his first language.

With a friend’s recommendation, Arthur joined the course and immediately began implementing the lessons. Within a year, his website hit its first 1k month, and the revenue kept growing.

The course’s step-by-step instructions, SOPs, and hands-on guidance provided Arthur with a solid framework to build a successful website on his first try.

🇮🇪 Brian Kelleher – From 4 to 5 figures/month with Us

When Brian joined Authority Hacker, he already had a site going making low 4 figures per month, but his site did not have any proper systems in place.

Our training taught him how to structure his editorial team, build content templates, restructure his site, and a lot more.

Long story short, a few months later, he went from a low 4 figures per month to 5 figures per month using Authority Hacker Pro, and his site is still growing rapidly as of 2023.

🇬🇧 Thomas SmaleCEO of FE International

Thomas is the CEO of FE International, one of the biggest website brokers in the world.

Thomas has seen hundreds of millions of dollars worth of deals between website buyers and sellers.

And while he did NOT build a site with one of our courses, he did sell many of the sites our students built for large amounts of money over the years.

And in his own words, Authority Hacker sites are superior to most other sites on the market due to the detailed processes our members have been following and the quality of links and content.

🇺🇸 Kevin EspirituJust raised an 8 figures investment

Kevin started his site together with the first members of Authority Hacker.

At first, he used the methods taught inside the training to grow his organic traffic and editorial team, which allowed him to quit his job and work full-time on his project.

He then used the free time to grow his social media channels that blew up during the pandemic.

He then opened a store on his site, feeding from his organic and social traffic, and now generates over 7 million dollars of sales per year.

🇬🇧 Joshua DunlopNow #1 Photography blog

Josh used our editorial blueprints to build a content creation process allowing him to publish 24 high-quality, weekly articles on his site.

This system allowed him to take over his competitors and become the world’s #1 photography education site in search traffic in a matter of months, with over 1.6 million monthly organic visitors, according to Ahrefs.

His Authority site now makes 7 figures per year selling courses and affiliate offers.

🇮🇳 Sumit BansalScaled his portfolio with TASS

Before joining the Authority Hacker community, Summit already had an online business, but he used The training to grow a portfolio of sites on top of his main business.

The structure he found in The Authority Site System allowed him to understand and rationalize what he achieved once, but he struggled to repeat.

Summit has now grown and sold several sites using our system, generating high-6 figures (USD) from the sale of these sites.

🇫🇷 Alexis SyndicEx-Agency Owner

Alex was an agency owner in Paris, and joining Authority Hacker Pro blew his mind to the possibilities.

So much so that he decided to let it all behind and went for a world tour with his wife while building websites.

He traveled for a whole year and built 2 sites that worked out really well to the point that he was financially independent by the time he got back to France.

He never looked back and is still traveling to this day.

🇩🇪 Mauricio Preuss40+ Staff site building for him

Mauricio joined Authority Hacker Pro right when we opened it up and has grown his company massively ever since.

He now has 40+ staff and generates over a million organic visitors to his sites.

He still uses Authority Hacker Pro’s fresh updates to come up with new ideas on how to use his resources better and lets us do the testing so he can focus on implementing.

🇿🇦 Robert BothaFrom teacher to baller

Robert is an ex Pro-gamer who was teaching English in Thailand for a low salary when he discovered Authority Hacker.

But in order to build the lifestyle he wanted, Robert looked into other opportunities and stumbled upon The Authority Site System.

While it felt expensive at the time, he thought that if he could make $2,000 per month after a year, it would be worth it.

9 months later, his site beat his goal by over 4x with over $8,500 in earnings; the rest is history.


What’s the difference between The Authority Site System and Authority Hacker Pro?

The best way to explain this is to give you a quick rundown of each of our courses and what they’re for.

The Authority Site System

This course is designed for complete beginners who need to build their site from the ground up. It shows you exactly what to do and when to do it and will set you on the path to earning a comfortable income with your site. It may also be useful if you have a site but struggle to profit from it. It will provide you with the correct structure needed to really turn it into a fully-fledged business.

Authority Hacker Pro

This course is for those who already have a site and are making a modest profit. We recommend this if you’re already earning over $1,000/month, as it contains some very advanced tactics. It covers a wide range of tactics from monetization to content production. Generally speaking, Pro is only available during launch periods at certain times during the year. If you’re interested in joining the waiting list for our next Pro launch, head over to

Can you still make money this way?

The short answer: yes!

We won’t sugarcoat things. Of course, things have gotten more difficult than they once were 5 to 10 years ago. But here’s the thing. That should be an encouraging sign. The reason there is more competition is that it works! People would not bother competing if there were no money to be made!

The good news is that this course acts as a primer to put you well ahead of the competition and give you the opportunity to compete despite having no prior knowledge. Consider it your magic key to winning. 

I have no experience at all. Is this course right for me?

If you’re willing to learn, we’re willing to teach. 

Even if you have little to no knowledge in marketing, computing, website design, or otherwise, there’s nothing to stop you from making money online.
What’s important is that you put the effort in to try and learn. Sometimes things might be a bit difficult, and you might not always understand the first time. However, like any new subject, the more you practice, the better you’ll get. 

I already know a little / lot about Online Marketing. Should I bother with this course?

Let’s ask Gael’s favorite question:

Where is the money?

If you have an established site that comfortably makes over $1,000 per month, then The Authority Site System is probably not the best course for you. Instead, check out our advanced course for established sites: Authority Hacker Pro.

If you know SEO theory but don’t actually make money from it yet, this course will still massively move the needle for you by giving you the structure you need to finally take action and actually make money from online marketing.

Will there be any additional costs on tools etc. after I purchase the course?

Short answer: Yes. Around $200-500.

Course Costs
First up, let’s talk about our costs. All of our courses come with no sneaky hidden costs. Once you purchase the course, you get access to everything. No mandatory upsells. No Drip-Fed content. No bait and switch training. 

Tool Costs
Next, you’ll need to factor in tool costs. Now I know you might be thinking, “some other courses include things like hosting for free!”. 
Here’s the problem with that. Things like hosting cost money. That money needs to come from somewhere. If it’s not upfront, the chances are it’s coming through other means. Usually at the cost of the user. 
We prefer to take an approach where you can clearly see where your money is being spent upfront and give you complete freedom to switch tools and platforms as you see fit throughout the course. 
Every recommendation within the course is thoroughly tested independently to ensure that you’re getting the best value for money. Because of this, we can be completely impartial with our tool selection process. 

Finally, your single biggest expense will be content. 
That is, if you decide to outsource it. 
The course gives you the freedom to decide this, though. If you have more time and want to save money, we teach you exactly how to write content, even if you’ve never done it before.
If you have more money to spend but little time, you can follow a different path and outsource the content.
The course caters to both these scenarios.

Will this course be updated? Do I need to pay for it?

Your purchase comes with lifetime access, including all updates for life.

That’s not just an empty promise, though. We frequently update the course, including timely fully-fledged rewrites when required. 

Whenever we do this, you get it free of charge.

How are you different from X course?

While we would love to tell you every way in which we differ from our competitors, the truth is, we wouldn’t know.

That’s not because we don’t care. It’s because we’re far more concerned about creating the very best version of our own course rather than trying to 1-Up someone else’s course.
That said, our underlying philosophy that we believe sets us apart is simple:

– Everything we do is backed up with real-life, field-tested examples

What kind of support do you offer?

We offer a ton of support channels to help you on your site-building journey.

Facebook Community
First and foremost is our Facebook community. This is a private group exclusively for members, which contains not only members of our own team but also a ton of well-versed online marketers.
No matter how big or small your question, you can almost always guarantee that someone will know the answers to your questions.

Member Support
You’ll also get access to help from our Full-Time Membership

Support team.
Perhaps you have a private question you would prefer not to share publicly on Facebook or just want to have a chat about something with our team – we’re here to help.
What’s more, we take pride in our responsiveness. You can expect a response during office hours in less than a few hours!

External Support
We specifically choose to work with tools and platforms we know can offer support and help to our members when they need it.
That means, if you have a technical problem with things like your hosting, web design or anything else, we’ll be able to point you in the right direction to get you back on your feet.

How much time should I dedicate to be successful?

We’re not going to sugarcoat it. Building a successful online business takes time, and there’s no shortcut to success – if someone tells you there is, they’re probably lying to you.

The short answer:
You’re looking at a lot of work upfront – perhaps 10-15 hours a week.

The good news? This workload will slowly ease as your website grows, and once you’ve got the hard parts out of the way, you can take your foot off the peddle a little.

The detailed answer:
Starting a business requires you to grind. You’ll need to put in some late nights and really push yourself.
The worst part? You may not even see the fruit of your labor for some time, which can leave you with a horrible feeling that it was all for nothing.

But it’s a fact: the people who invest more time are more successful in the long run. There is no instant gratification in site building, and as soon as you’re able to overcome that mental hurdle, the better you’ll perform both mentally and as a website owner. And when those results come in, it’s probably one of the best feelings in the world.

So let’s talk numbers. How many hours a day should you work? Well, the important thing here isn’t how many hours you work but, more importantly, how consistently you stick to them.
But let’s say you want to take the course at a moderate pace – you’re looking at around 15 hours a week or 3 hours every weekday evening with the odd weekend thrown in.

Inevitably, that’s going to mean sacrifices. It’s going to mean saying no to those midweek drinks, no to catching the latest movie once in a while, and no to the occasional weekend getaway.

Commit yourself to that number and remember it’ll all be worth it. I know, it sucks. The thing is, the reward is so worth it – every entrepreneur will say that. And the important thing to remember? It’s not forever. A little work upfront truly means a lot of freedom in the long run.

Can I use the course on my existing site?

The course was designed from the perspective of building a new site, but that doesn’t mean it can ONLY be used that way.

If you’ve found that your site is struggling or you just don’t know what to do with it, this course may be useful. In cases like these, we usually recommend taking advantage of our 30-day money-back guarantee to check out the course, see if you can find use with it on your site, and if not, you can ask for a refund – no questions asked!
