I have decided that I am going to be creating a niche site. I haven’t created a niche site in several years since, I lost all my income when Google updated their algorithms.
Why Am I Creating a niche site?
Well the truth is that I love creating WordPress sites, that is why my friends say I should be a web designer. Although, I have to admit that when it comes to designing a site, I am terrible. Come to think of it I love the programming aspect of WordPress…I should’ve been a computer programmer.
Now I am not saying that I am a great programmer…but
I love getting inside of WordPress and figuring out the PHP code. But that’s another story for another day.
Right now I want to tell you about my decision to creating a niche site. Before all the algorithm updates, I had a junk cars niche site and that site alone was bring me over $1500 per month. I loved it.
Now I am NOT saying that the niche site I am going to be creating will net me as much as my junk cars site did. Although, it would be nice.
To tell you the truth, I won’t be spending so much time on it. I have so much other stuff going on.
But I figured what the heck, why not give it a try. I have two other niche sites on the Internet that I haven’t touched in years and they still continue to make me money.
Not as much as my junk cars site did, but enough to justify renewing them every year.
Plus I love challenges…guess you can say that I am crazy.
Now this isn’t going to be a quick 5 page micro website. Nope, I am actually going to be creating an authority blog.
I’ve always felt that I shouldn’t have all my eggs in one basket. Back in the day I had over 10 niche sites and they all made a little something.
The bad thing is that I didn’t take the time to create authority sites. I had also built backlinks to the sites that Google didn’t approve of. So when they lost their rankings, I just let them go.
I also let my junk cars site go because the affiliate program it was associated with went belly up. Guess that is why I spend most of my time creating my own products…it’s much safer than putting all your eggs into affiliate programs.
So I guess you can say that I’ve decided to start this site duel against myself to see if I can rank a site again using nothing but SEO.
The one thing that I will be doing differently during this niche site duel, is that I won’t be creating a ton of backlinks to the sites. I truly believe that my junk cars site would have survived had I not been creating a bunch of worthless links.
Yes I will be creating some links to it, after all without links my site won’t gain any traction. But the truth is that I won’t be spending a lot of time building backlinks, I just don’t have the time.
I will be posting my update niche site duel stats here. I haven’t decided how often I will post the updates, but I will be posting them.
Not to mention, inside of my membership, I will be posting everything I am doing to my site. So if you want to follow along and build your own site then be sure to join my IM Training Membership.
