How the training is structured
What I really like about this course is not just video training, it also includes an additional text summary for each video. If you've ever bought a video-only course, it's sometimes a bit frustrating to watch an entire video just to find some information. Here's a really good summary of each video, so there's no problem accessing something.
Once you've completed a section, you can mark it as completed so you can track your progress. A valuable feature because there is much information and I can see how confusing it can be without it!
Let's take a closer look at the modules
Module 0 – Preparatory Lessons
This is an introduction to the course and the navigation. You will see in the picture above. It shows you the “Case Study Site“to give you an idea of what kind of website you will create.
The next one is the one “New Site Todo System” These include various templates that you use as checklists for your new site. I've never seen that and really help you stay organized and in check.
Next is the “Facebook community” Here you can access the Facebook group. At the time of writing, there are 1437 members. It's a good place to get help and inspiration.
The “Ask a question page” This is simply an area where you can ask questions or answer concerns to course creators. The answers to the most frequently asked questions are in video format.
The “Update Log” is a list of all changes / additions to the course.
Module 1 – The Authority's Location Model and Online Marketing 101
There are 5 lessons in this module and the topics included are:
- What is an authority website
- How government agencies get traffic
- How government agencies make money
- Affiliate Marketing 101
- SEO 101
In this module you will learn What is an authority websitehow they are a great business model, what challenges it brings to setting up one of these sites, and what different phases there are.
You will learn too How websites get traffic from authorities from different sources. TASS focuses on SEO as the main source of traffic, one of my favorite ways to draw attention to your pages, and probably to the way you've found just that page.
Advantages and disadvantages of SEO are discussed as well as the other forms of traffic – of which there are many and which are clearly defined in the module.
In the “How Authority Sites Make Money“video you will learn the 3 most important ways how this is achieved.
Affiliate Marketing 101 is a video for those who are new and have a good explanation of how they work, as well as deep insights into how to avoid bad products, physical products, maximizing commission rates, and more.
In that SEO 101 This section provides an overview of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) how rankings are created, from keyword research to content creation and link building. Every section is critical, especially keyword research, and in the next module, you'll literally be fascinated by the level of detail in keyword research. That is much. By the way, I will get this now – This course is not for the faint of heart. You will learn a lot and spend a lot of time, because there is a lot to learn.
This concludes module 1. As mentioned before, each video is provided with a summary and the diagrams contained in the videos. There was no lint in this module, just a ton of solid information to give you a very good understanding of what's coming.
Module 2 – Niche Research and Site Planning
This is the largest module of the lesson with just over 20 videos. It took me a few days to get through this because I'm not the only one watching so many videos in one day. If you can do it – more power for you!
Instead of typing all the lessons (there are so many!), I just take a screenshot. That's not all, by the way, but at least you get an idea of what's covered. You can see that I took the screenshot before completing all the lessons. I think I was here the second day when I ticked off the “Simple Keywords” option.
The purpose of this module is to give you instructions for the “map” of the website you want to create. The amount of research Gael shows covers levels that I have never even gone myself to. There are so many different levels of keyword research that he only goes into a topic, but do not worry – it's well explained and easy to follow.
Disclaimer – You need ahrefs for this.
The entire niche research in the course is carried out with AHREFS,
You can get a 7-day trial for $ 7, after that it's only $ 99 a month. Well, the good news is that you will be using Ahrefs in the beginning for your niche research. It's still good to have, since I consistently use this tool, but you can cancel it at any time after completing your research. It's good to use it for other things later, but that's up to you. Gael explains this in the course, but thought that you should be aware of it.
In this module you will learn how to select a successful niche. Believe it or not, this is actually the most strenuous and longest part of setting up your website.
Site planning is crucial to your success. If you do not do this right or just skip this part, you can cost a lot of money and time.
Although this section is very extensive, you will understand how it is done when you pay attention to the material and follow it. Do not worry if you are completely new. Gael breaks up everything for you and guides you through Ahrefs, how you can do this research. Anyone can do it, as long as they have the patience to learn.
This section is extremely valuable and you will know with great confidence whether the niche you are about to enter will bring you money. You'll even learn how to tell if the niche is possibly a 5 or 6 digit niche per month!
I can tell you from experience that this section is not to be overlooked. There is a lot to do, but it will save you a lot of grief. I can not tell you how many affiliate sites I've bombed just because I've blindly “winged” them or done some niche research. We all learn. At least you'll fully understand why niche research is so important when you're done with this module.

Module 3 – Site Setup
This section tells you how to set up your site from scratch. Once you have completed Behemoth Module 2, the steps in this section will guide you through the process of setting up your site – properly.
You will need hosting for this and also a domain name. Personally, I like NameSilo for domains, but you can also get it from NameCheap or GoDaddy or other domain registrars. Do not worry, that's cheap. You can get a domain for $ 10 and hosting for less than $ 50 for a year.
Your site is created in WordPress and if you have WordPress experience, you are ahead of the curve. If you do not – do not worry, they will be held in your hand throughout the process.
Here are some of the topics that you will learn from a screenshot of the timetable:
There are 14 videos in this section and all are also supported by a review and charts. It's a lot to keep in mind when you're new to site creation, but the good news is that anyone can do it with will and determination. Oh and a little patience helps too. Just a little tip, if you are overly frustrated, save your work, go away and come back later. Do not let your emotions affect you negatively.
Once you're done with this section, not only will you know how to set up a site in WordPress, but you'll also have a site that's set up RIGHT. Most people are missing out on many of the steps that are critical to your success in starting a Web site for government agencies.
For me, much of this section was a review, though I picked up on a few things that I'll change from now on.
Module 4 – Content Creation
In this module, Mark Webster takes over and shows you how you can research and write high-quality content yourself. If you find that somewhat daunting, you do not have to worry because you'll get templates that help you structure your article into manageable parts.
There is also an Amazon Associates module where you learn things that you should and should not do when using the program.
You will also learn how to publish content on your website, including providing live content and structuring it with on-page SEO.
If you're too lazy to write your own content, or just not feeling safe enough, do not worry – Mark will show you how to outsource your content, find the right authors, and maintain quality.
The provided templates help you understand the different types of content you need. It is recommended that you write the first 10 articles yourself (again, you have the option to outsource them).
Why is content so important?
The content is the main distinguishing feature between the quality of different websites. Note that there are no metrics for measuring domain quality, such as: For example, a tool like Ahrefs that measures domain ratings, links, and so on.
So to stand out from the competition, you really have to pay attention to this module. I have not seen any other course so detailed on the quality of the content, and it has things that keep you up to date to maintain high standards.
This is a pretty big section with 8 videos on different topics. Each video is very detailed and contains notes and charts on each topic.
I was pretty excited about this section and I think it will improve my writing experience. You should be able to rely on the fact that the content of your website not only leads to success – you also have a clear picture of how and what you should write.
You'll also improve over time, and you can always go back and edit all the content on your page that's on your sites.
Module 5 – Link Building
By the time you reach this module, you should have already created your site and have 10 items active. Now comes the funny part – link building.
The course uses only white hat link building techniques. They teach you the right way to create high-quality links with your own techniques that you learn to scale.
Below is a screenshot of the intro module for creating links that lists the topics you will be learning.
Why are links important?
Links make your website popular. The more links you link to your site, the more popular your opinion that you are is Google, which will improve your ranking. However, these must be the right links. Garbage links can harm your website, so this must be done right.
The methods in the course will show you how to get these links almost for free. If you're looking for an agency to do this for you, you can pay up to $ 100 or more per link. These methods are worth the cost of the course if you think about it.
You will learn how to interact effectively with others, what to say and how to increase the likelihood of getting a link. You will also learn how to get in touch with and respond to the right people.
You've also automated the process so you can learn how to do the same and save a lot of work. There will still be a human element in the link building process, but much will be handled automatically by automated processes.
Like content, this may be foreign to you, but the way you explain everything and with so much detail – you are confident and will fully understand the process and meaning of this step for building your business and activities Competitor.
Final thoughts on Authority Site System 2.0
This course is very different from the many different courses I have bought in the past. Originally, I thought this would be another “affiliate marketing course,” but it's still a long way off.
In this course, you will learn how to build a sustainable business that will provide you with passive income during your sleep and for years to come.
I myself have done this in many different niches and wish I had this when I first started. The main thing that you have such a big advantage is the niche research part. Choosing the right niche and how to find one is simply gold. You will be confident and know that you will make money from it.
For and against
- The course is run by seasoned marketing professionals who create VERY successful 6-site-per-month sites. They even show you what they have built, which is rare these days.
- Current training. The course was recently updated with version 2.0 and seems to be constantly updated over time
- Income replacement. If you do it right, you can leave your job in 6 to 12 months.
- You will learn everything correctly and not some shady night flight tactic
- The learned methods have proven themselves
- First-class training and strategies that I have not seen yet (I'll start implementing them!)
- No fluff, no cop. Only value, value, value.
- Money Back Guarantee – but I doubt you would care about it after attending the course.
- If you are lazy and have the attention span of a baboon, you might have difficulty with training and execution here
- You have to invest in some tools. The most expensive is ahrefs for $ 99 a month. However, you only need this during your research phase, which is in your first month, and you may also consider buying a group, but do a research first.
- I can not think of anything else!
Who is this course for?
If you are looking for a push button solution, this is not for you. If you want to get rich with hardly any work, this is not for you. If you plan to earn money within weeks of completing the course, this is not for you.
So, who is that for? I think the best candidates are those who are currently busy looking for a way out within the next 6 months to a year.
If you're ready to spend a few hours a week training and building your website, you may be able to leave work within a year. Note, however, that this will vary and there are no guarantees. However, this is one of the few courses I have seen to help you build a successful website for government agencies.
There is a 30-day money back guarantee, You do not have to prove that you tried and did not get your money back. Just ask. Your goal, however, is to succeed and get no refund.
If you have tried other courses in the past and failed, it is not your fault. The course was just crap.
If you have the patience to learn patience as your site grows slowly over time and commissions increase week by week, your Authority Site can be your income replacement.
You can buy the course completely for $ 599, which I would recommend. If you do not act soon, the price will rise to $ 997. This will be verified Not be a “scarcity tactic”.
There is an option for a payment plan of $ 99 per month for 10 months.
