What is a niche site?

what is a niche siteVery recently, I have noticed I’ve been getting a lot of emails from my readers asking “what is a niche site” and how can you make money from them. I started online by building these small websites and adding Google AdSense and Amazon affiliate links to monetize them. The reason I started by building these small websites is because, there are millions of niches out there. I look for a market which is not saturated, a market that is in demand.

Here is a post I made which has tips on building your very own niche sites.

These small niches can be very profitable if you can find them.

So, what is a niche site?

A niche site is a website focused on one specific market. For example: treadmills. Most niche sites will have between 20-100 pages of content based on a market or products in the market. Most of these pages will also have affiliate links in them to make revenue from.

For example: If I made a website about treadmills, I would do keyword research and find “buying” incentive keywords like “best treadmills” or “treadmill reviews”. These people are looking for the best product or a product review which in turn means they are looking to buy.

If you go into the Google keyword planner and look at these keywords, you will see how many searches they get. This can determine if there is a demand for these kinds of products. If there is a large search volume, I would then go and check the top 10 results in Google for these terms.

If “I” think I can rank for these keywords, I would then try and get a domain name similar to the keyword, I would then add content and start with around 20 reviews on the products, then link them to amazon. I would add a 2,000 word article on the homepage with a comparison chart of the 10 top rated treadmills on the market.

Once the site has some content, I would then start link building to get the website ranking on page 1, this can take some time but once ranked, and you can leave it on autopilot and then move on to your next niche site.

This is exactly the method I use to build different sources of income and building a large portfolio of websites which are earning money all the time.

You can take a look at a website I sold in august for $1750 here.

Does it take a lot of work to build these websites?

No, not really, I’ve been building them for 2 years now and I work a total of 20 hours by adding content and doing keyword research for new reviews and posts.

Do you outsource anything?

Yes, I outsource content and link building.

Does it cost a lot to get started with one?

Not really, if you want to be successful online, you have to invest time, effort and a bit of money. For example: a recent website I created cost a total of £300 for content and link building. The website is now ranking on page 1 spot one making passive income monthly.

How long does it take to rank?

It depends on how difficult your competition is for your keywords. Finding low competitive keywords means ranking quickly and ranking easily which in turn means making money much faster.

Will you continue to build more and more?

Yes, I have 2 new niche sites being built as we speak, these are some of the easiest ways to make money online and I love building them, so I will continue to build them until I have enough, then my plans are to move on to bigger things.

If you have been wondering “what is a niche site” then I hope this has answered your question. Like, I said before, this is the easiest way to make money online. You just need to make sure to do real in depth research to make sure your targeting low competitive terms.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

      Yes, you need to find a premium responsive theme. These are themes you need to pay for. I like to use “theme junkie” and “elegant themes”. There are many more options but try to use responsive themes, these will help your website load faster and work well on mobile and tablets.

      Also, plugins which you don’t use, delete them because having too many can slow WordPress down.

      Hope this helps.

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization?

    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

    Congrats on the sale of that niche site….why didn’t you wait until it was earning much more or did you feel the site reached its potential?

      Hey Scott!

      I like to build sites and flip them quickly. I have a few sites which are sitting making passive income from Google Adsense. Selling a website for a large chunk of money helps me invest into larger projects.
