Micro Niche Site Challenge – Part 2
Micro Niche Challenge
Ok so I have my domain russiankettlebelltraining.com, and I’ve started to add content, slowly, maybe one to two posts per day or every other day so far. I’ve also ordered my articles for the article marketing a few days ago, from seoarticlewritingpros.com. They charge 10$ per article of you order at least 10.
I know the articles may be more than I can get from someone in the Philippines, but I’ve had one bad experience with PI, and I don’t have time to research for a new one. So I am basically paying for convenience. Now I am not sure if they outsource to the Philippines, but when I receive the articles they are great! Good grammar, well read and ready to post to article directories.
Double Your Moneys Worth
Once I have posted my articles to Ezinearticles.com, and they get approved, I slightly re-word them and post them to other article directories. This way there’s no duplicate content being posted, and I get double, triple or quadruple use out of the articles. BTW did I mention the articles are original content? They also pass CopyScape. So that’s where I am with my content and articles so far.
Theme and Site
I have adjusted and manipulated the default theme for WordPress for russiankettlebelltraining.com. I made it clean and pretty basic, so it’s easy to read and lot’s of white space. I changed the background color to something I like, and will probably change the font in the sidebar too.
For monetization I am an affiliate with Dragon Door Publications, the largest seller of Kettlebells and Kettlebell Books, and Kettlebell Training Videos and DVDs. I will eventually put AdSense on there from Google, but I am waiting a little longer to do so, I think I want to wait till I am fully indexed before putting AdSense on there.
I am not ranking yet, I am indexed, but not ranking, that I can find for my keywords, but I did run into a post by Josh Hanagarne at The Worlds Strongest Librarian on Kettlebell Training when searching for my site in Google. Great article and glad I ran into it, I posed a question for him about kettlebells and brands,as I intend on buying one this week so I don’t have to keep running to the gym to workout, I can do it at home. I figure since I am writing more I will have less time to drive to the gym so I should at least workout at home.
While the main benefit from a niche site is money, there is another very good reason I decided to do this Niche Topic on Russian Kettlebells. I am about 48 lbs. overweight and decided to make this a double challenge. After seeing Pat Flynn’s P90X Results, I said what the heck, I’ll not only kick his butt with my niche site, but I’ll also get in shape too. The other reason for this is to gain a better perspective on the Niche Topic itself. I CAN’T write about things I am not passionate about, much less interested in, so I figure this will also help me to write articles about Kettlebell training, and I’ll have a place to document my successes and failures. If you see some guy named Demetri posting on there, that’s me, my Kettlebell Alter Ego. I know, I’m a dork.
So the benefits will be many:
- Doing a strict Niche website in which I am challenged and competing with others
- Doing the niche site *completely* start to finish(Not getting distracted and moving onto another shiny object)
- Getting healthy in the progress of it all
- eventually, maybe, flipping it on Flippa.com for more cash when I am either done or bored with it. Flippa is a great place to flip a site, especially if it’s ranked and making money. People are happy to pay you for a money making site already built and running.
