    Hey Guys,

    Pretty sure I already know the answer to this as it's obvious, I guess i'm just being hopeful.
    I bought a domain on Auction that used to be an educational resource, I then changed it to be an Amazon Affiliate site aimed at the fitness hardware field.
    It did rank but stayed at the top of page 2.

    What would happen if I changed it to a clothing store now? Would it just never rank in the new field?

    Anybody have experience really f*****g with a website like this? This website is useless to me so I don't mind changing it over, i'm just after some initial thoughts.

    My suggestion is stay on fitness niche.

    Try to improve the rankings with both the On page and Off page methods.

    For fitness niche competition is high try to get good keyword and content also important.

    Well I would say that it will have impact on the website. If you have good quality backlins and all URLs juice will be captured and redirected, then maybe it could be the way to go. Unless you have hundrends unique articles that Google loves??!

    Just push it to top 3. No idea why would you be changing the site now, it's a really bad idea. It's one thing to change niche when site expires, but like this... it's just bad. Continue ranking it or forget it.
