How to Start a Niche Website

A lot of money can be made by creating niche sites that generate you a little bit of income every month. Once they are up and running they have literally no upkeep and the money just continues to come in no matter what you do with your time. It is a great source of passive income. I want to share with you the basics of creating your own niche website.

The idea behind niche websites is fairly simple. Create a website in a certain niche, obtain the top search engine rankings for that niche and get loads of visitors to your site. Place advertisements on your site to make money and update your site maybe once per month or less (or maybe never) and continue to get income month in month out without doing much work at all.

Finding a Niche
Finding a niche that will get enough people going to it for it to be profitable is an important first task. For this I recommend:

How To Find a Keyword Phrase
Finding a keyword phrase which you can rank highly in and which can bring you a significant amount of traffic is the next step towards creating a profitable niche website. One of the great tools you can use for this is the SEO Book Keyword Suggestion Tool. You can type in a keyword and it will show you keyword phrases which people use to search for that certain keyword. For example if you type in Miley Cyrus into the tool it will show you phrases such as “Miley Cyrus”, “Miley Cyrus nude”, “Miley Cyrus naked”, “Miley Cyrus pictures” and so on from the most popular searches down to the least popular. This is a great tool to find out one keyword phrase you can focus on. All you need to to be rank first for one of the keyword phrases which gets over 500 hits per day and you can make the $1-$5 per day we talked about.

Buying a Domain Name
Now, this is a very important part. You want to buy a domain name that has your keyword phrase in it. This is because it will help you rank higher in search engines for that keyword. If you have chosen Miley Cyrus as your niche then you want to try all the keyword phrases as domain names and see which one you can get as a .com.

Write Keyword Rich Content
Now that you have your domain name and keyword phrase you want to focus on you need to make your website as SEO friendly as possible. Your title needs to have your keyword phrase, use images with your keyword phrase and include your keyword phrase in the ‘alt’ section of your images. In your content which you write for your website write with keywords in mind and put in bold your keyword phrase you are focusing on. Do everything you can to make your website as search engine friendly as possible because we are trying to get to the number one spot for your search engine rankings.

Building Backlinks
Once you have optimised your website for search engines then start building backlinks to your website. Try and create backlinks which include your keyword phrase, you can do this through commenting, through swapping links with others, by buying links, by using your own website to link to it. Do whatever you can to gain backlinks because the more links you have the more likely you are to get ranked higher in the search engines

Make sure you put some advertising on your website so you can make money from it. Try Google Adsense for starters, and maybe try private advertising later.

Now you can make money in your sleep and you don’t have to do anything. If it takes you a month to set up but then you can make $5/day for the rest of your life wouldn’t it be worth it? I think the answer is YES!

If you really want to get into this, I suggest you take a look at this course: How to make Money Online: Niche Websites. This will guide you through the whole process and make it easier.

Good luck!
