This training was just updated for 2022!
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 2022. 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.
Building a successful authority site requires you to get good at many skills such as…
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.
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.
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 Slow, clunky and out of date technology will kill your rankings.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 which are easy to implement.
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?”
Revenue growth of a brand new site we recently sold for mid 6 figure (case study)
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, 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.)
We repeated the same process in 2020 where we took an old abandoned golf site and applied our processes to see if our stuff still worked.
And well, 18 month later, we sold yet another site for 6 figures again after growing its traffic and revenue quickly during that period.
Alongside these internal case study, we frantically took notes and updated our SOP’s and processes with small details we had missed, new tactics we found out and a large number of optimizations to the existing process and even scrapped complete sections and redid them from scratch.

Charlie is from Fleet, England. He went to university but didn’t take it seriously. That led him to be working 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 after a bit, his site really took off and he achieved job replacement income.
An agency also took notice and gave him partnership to run their link building. He now uses that money to grow even more sites while travelling the world.
Today, Charlie lives in Chiang Mai Thailand making 5 figure per month running his sites.
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.
We strive to be as actionable as possible throughout the training. You’ll see us do real work, building a real site. No boring Powerpoint presentations (Ughh, no thanks!).
Instead, we 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.
Did I mention you’ll get to explore our finished, revenue-generating site once you become a member? This is as close to painting by numbers as it gets!
Plus, the site you see us build in the course now ranks on Google for competitive monetized terms so you can see this stuff working live!
“When I joined The Authority Site System, the membership fee seemed like a crazy amount of money to me. I decided to go ahead with it anyway and started my first Authority Site in December that year. My goal was to create a website that could generate a monthly income of $2000 after 1 year.
Not only did I complete my original goal in only 9 months, but I have also exceeded it by over 4 times, earning $8,513.33 in August that year.
Becoming an Authority Site System member will probably be one of the best investments I’ll ever make in my entire life.”
To make it as easy for you as possible, we’ve built templates for literally every part of the course. Use these to replicate exactly what we are doing in no time at all.
These templates cover niche research, design, link building, and even full blog content templates. Need to make a product review, epic roundup post or how-to article? There is a template for everything.
Our templates not only save you HOURS of time, but they also ensure you build your site exactly the way we build ours. You could say it’s virtually idiot-proof!
Chris is from Canada, he started to build sites 3-4 years ago.
On his own, he managed to build his monthly passive income to $3,000 – $4,000 per month which is already amazing.
But after he joined The Authority Site System, he managed to take his sites to over $15,000 per month using the tactics he found inside our member area.
The #1 question most beginners ask when building out an authority site is… “what do I do next?”
The Authority Site System solves this problem 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 like 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.
When you’re done, just fire up Notion, open up the next item and keep going until your site is completely finished!
Summit already had an online business before he joined the Authority Site System but he used The Authority Site System to grow a portfolio of sites on top of his main business.
The structure he found in the course allowed him to understand and rationalise what he achieved once but he struggled repeating.
Nowadays, with the systems and templates he found in the training, Summit managed 7 fast growing sites and he feels much better about how diversified and safer his online income is.
When you enroll in the Authority Site System today, you’ll get unrestricted access to the private Facebook mastermind group.
After talking with our current students and gathering feedback, the mastermind is consistently rated as one of the best, most VALUABLE parts of the course.
This gives you a way to talk to, share with and learn from other people going through the system… PLUS, you have direct communication with the Authority Hacker team.
We are in there every day answering your questions, helping members and encouraging you to take action now.
It’s also a place to ENGAGE with hundreds of other students who’re actively building profitable authority sites. It’s not just a Facebook group, it’s a support system on steroids.
Niall is not just a customer of ours. He actually bought every single affiliate course on the market and wrote extremely detailed reviews about each of them on his site ebizfacts.com.
And after reviewing the most popular training, he put The Authority Site System on top of the list.
We didn’t know about it until he published the review so we went to interview him and asked him what made the training stand out according to him.
If you are lost in all this content at any point of time, we have an absolute rockstar support team on 9 to 5 shifts to answer any question you may have about the course, billing, tactics or anything else.
Unlike the competition that often choses to outsource support to cheap overseas teams, we’ve decided to make 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 day to day 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.

Shane Dutka - From accountant to 7 Figures Marketer
After losing $38,000 in a failed bowtie business, Shane found Authority Hacker and was one of our first members.
I remember getting on a call with him shortly after he joined and looking at his site saying “wow, great site, I think it will do well”
And well it did. A few years later, Shane sold his site for over a million dollar and forever changed his life from a nerdy accountant to a baller online entrepreneur.
Kevin Espiritu- The Jamie Oliver of Gardening
Kevin was one of the first members of Authority Hacker Pro. He had one passion that he wanted to build his life around: Gardening.
It did happen in one day, not even one year. But looking back now, using the blueprints to kickstart his site, quit his day job and now make up to 6 figures/month while working on something he loves was absolutely worth it.
He also grew an incredible following online using some of the blueprints provided in Authority Hacker Pro and is now the face of national ad campaigns.
We could not be prouder of his achievement here at Authority Hacker.
Mauricio Preuss - Built a team of 40+ people building sites
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.
Thomas Smale - Founder 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 being made between website buyers and website 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, both due to the detailed processes our members have been following along with the quality of links and content.
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 you’re struggling 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 generally recommend this if you’re earning over $1,000/month already 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 authorityhacker.com/pro
The short answer: yes!
We won’t sugar coat 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 because it works! People would not bother competing if there was 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.
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 making money online.
What’s important is that you put the effort in to try and learn. There will be times where things might be a bit difficult and you might not always understand the first time, however, just like any new subject, the more you practice, the better you’ll get.
Let’s ask Gael’s favorite question:
Where is the money?
If you have an established site that is comfortably making 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.
Short answer: Yes. Around $200-500.
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.
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 upfront where your money is being spent 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 instead follow a different path and outsource the content instead.
The course caters to both these scenarios.
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.
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 elses course.
That said, our underlying philosophy that we believe sets us apart is simple:
We offer a ton of support channels to help you on your site building journey.
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.
You’ll also get access to help from our Full Time Membership Support team.
Perhaps you have a private question you would prefer not ot share publicly on Facebook or just want to have a chat about something with our team – we’re here to help.
What’s more is we take pride in our responsiveness. During office hours you can expect a response in less than a few hours!
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.
We’re not going to sugar coat 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 off as your website grows and once you’ve gotten 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 and this 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 that 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 whole lot of freedom in the long run.
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!
