For those of you that have been following Spencer Hawes Niche Site Project – he started back in January building a niche website that would generate $500 per month on more or less auto pilot. As of last check – he had achieve over $700 but was penalized recently by the new Panda update – never the less – he was successful in creating a very profitable website that will produce in excess of $8000 in its first year. What really fascinates me the mathematical principles of this concept. Simply put – if a person wanted to created a steady monthly income of $10,000 per month – they would need to focus in building 12 to 15 niche oriented websites.
Based on this principle – I began building a new niche site called Quiet Generator Guide – ( http://www.quietgeneratorguide.com ) back on July 23rd of this year with the primary focus on ranking on Google for its key words – specifically ” quiet generator ” and ” best quiet generator. ” I had wrote a primary article of around 1600 words, and then another 10 or so secondary articles. I did some basic link building – mostly through forums and some back link packages but nothing overly intense. My main focus was to simply write strong content.
In having a look over the past few days I was pleased to see that the site ranks #1 several keywords and number 10 for the term Quiet Generator which I expect to see climb over the next month into the top 5. This site has also seen its page authority rank climb on Open Site Explorer to 16 with a page authority of 27 which isn’t bad for a site 4 months old on a newly registered domain. Unfortunately the site isn’t making all that much – which is disappointing based on the traffic the site is receiving. I think one of my errors was in the product selection that the site focused on. Unless you are in a remote area – you are likely to go down to Costco or Walmart to buy your generator. In the future – I plan on building sites more focused on products people are likely to order online.
Next up is a new site called Expert Kitchen Knives which is going to be a sub site under a line of gourmet cooking tools etc. High end kitchen knives – the kind that retail for $100 plus per knife aren’t sold in Walmart, and this should lead to a higher conversion rate with Amazon. So far I’ve done the articles myself but I plan on farming out my content in the near future so I can ramp up site production. My goal by this time next year is to have built 100 of these sites for a monthly revenue of $40k per month.
Now that I am confident that I have proven that I can rank on page one for a competitive subject such as Quiet Generators – the next real step is documenting that process – building an assembly line and then rolling out the content accordingly.
I’ll keep you updated.
