If you’re looking for the best ways to make money online then you should definitely consider niche sites. Despite that, times are changing and making good money on niche sites isn’t today what it used to be about 3 years ago.
Back then, it was only the matter of finding a good keyword, a perfect-match domain, building a site and creating some spammy backlinks to rank first in Google. Nowadays Google won’t allows sites, which content is more or less trash, to the top of the search engine. Quality matters! In this article I’ll give you a general overview about what to do in order to build up a sustainable niche-site.
There are various different niche-sites available today:
The most popular of them are the Google Adsense niche-sites, which basically means that people build up a site relying on a certain popular keyword, go on adding content and earn their income from Google Adsense.
Secondly, there are a lot of affiliate sites. Basically, your blog works as a commercial agency – it promotes services or products and every time a purchase has been made, you earn a commission. You can just find a product/niche from Amazon or Clickband and promote it.
Actually, you don’t even need to find a certain niche. There’s a thing called Sniper Sites, a term made famous by George Brown from Google Sniper. You just need to find a profitable product. After finding the right product, you’ll just need to rank your site by coming up with popular keywords describing it. When choosing, try to aim for keywords, which will get you approximately 2000 searches per month, there more the better! If you can’t come up with such keywords, it’s better to move on to a new product or you won’t be able to rank your site on the top of the search engines.
When you have chosen your keywords, it’s time to acquire a popular domain name. It’s better to avoid an exactly matching domain name, because you may get sanctionised with the EMD update. That done, it’s time to move on signing up with a web host. Try to get the best deal you can and install a site on it.
It is crucial to get a decent theme for your website. You shouldn’t add all the content at once as well, it will be more sustainable if you do it step by step. For instance, update the site once or twice a week, not more. Basically, to stay at the top of the search engines for a longer duration, you’ll need only a minimum of 10 articles.
Now your site is active! The next step is to get to the top of the search engines. In order to get there, you’ll have to build some links. Spammy links are not acceptable, the quality has to be good! So, for the certainty of the process, it’s highly recommendable to do it manually, so you’ll be sure of the quality of the backsite the link is connected to. I’d recommend trying out Pat Flynn’s backlinking strategy, it’s considered to be one of the best. You should be seeing results in about a months time. Don’t hesitate if at first the sales won’t go up, eventually they will!
