I'm new to IM. This will be my first step into IM and my first niche site. I purchased Long Tail Pro about a week ago after some good advice here. It took me a while to figure out how to actually use it (again, with help from the people on BHW). Just when I thought I was getting nowhere in terms of finding my first niche keyword, boom. I found a 3 piece term which had great stats and met all the criteria I've been taught to look for. I purchased the EMD from namecheap last night and, after that, got little sleep. So many ideas bouncing around my head but I still arrived at "now what?". I'll just spit out a few questions I have before I ramble. Let it be known that I'm still undecided if I am going to do an AdSense or affiliate site, or, a combination. 1. Using Wordpress for my site - do you suggest 5 articles? 2. Should each article (including the title) be optimized for my chosen search term? 3. How in depth should each article be? 4. Should there be any static pages? I'm a bit fuzzy on this because one of the things I couldn't -until now- grasp was using Long Tail Pro to analyze the google top 10. I realize that google ranks the PAGE and not the SITE, so that's where I am wondering what exactly I am trying to rank using my chose search term. If I have no static pages, am I trying to rank just one blog post or the entire site? Thanks in advance! On my way to my first dollar!
