    I was looking for a niche to start a nice amazon site and stumble across a easy KW with 2K us monthly searches for a product that its $200+ up to 1K.( but mostly around $200-300 price range )

    The think is the niche is little bigger then I originally thought as there are few sub categories of the product.
    The only competition is one site with that have the kw in the domain and something extra, there is no other competition.
    The think is I like the site and I would like to write the same content with my own words and making it unique and adding a few things to make it more engaging.

    I don't know if I should do that or not as I am not familiar to much with that niche ( just a little bit ) and the site is giving me a lot of recurses.

    My question is should I "copy" his site as i already know his KW and the density he is using ( lol I know everything )?

    Isn't that what we all do unless we're building the first niche site in a niche? Answer, yes, base your own articles around topics he already have done research about - I do like to add in some spice however as most of these niche articles aren't as detailed as I wish them to be.

    Best of luck with your Amazon site dude! :)

    Thanks!

    It will be easier when others have done the legwork, also can you recommend a wp theme.
    Anyway I am following your jorney and it awesome and probably I will hit you with questions down the road ( I hope you don't mind ).

    I usually use Schema or Genesis Framework as I like themes that looks good directly when you install them, haha.
    (The links I put on their names is links to the download section, where you can get these for free!)

    Thanks for following my journey! The journey was made to share my journey (duh) with two Amazon sites and hopefully people will get something out of it - along the way. I know that most of the information I've learnt on here are from different journeys around here - I hope that my journey will help someone out there looking into starting Amazon.

    I would greatly answer any questions you have regarding anything related to Amazon! Take care! :)

    I do it all the time, I only made 1 original website so far :)

    Throw the url in semrush and you get all the good keywords that are easy to rank. (you can get a 1 month account for $5 at fiverr)

    I kinda don't like the idea to take someones else effort and all that shit...but fuck it, IM is a competitive place.

    I know about that I was planing to order it on fiverr, I also have kw tool "ultimate niche finder".

    This is just a pointless thread.

    For you to try this its going to cost you $6 for a domain, a little web hosting which you probably have and a couple of days of effort (or $50 if you out source content)

    Yet instead of just doing it and getting on with it you have spent hours of your life thinking about it, now you are steal time from us asking us if its worth it....

    Just do it... just make the website and find out. No one here knows if your idea will work, but it certainly will not work unless you go and do it.

    Stop wasting everyones time and do it. Go and build 100 of these sites, one will probably work out well for you.

    Calm down dude, wtf.

    BTW good plan, don't think, work and make 100's pointless websites and pray one of them will start making money.

    Also in future if you find some thread pointless don't comment on it as you have better stuff to do.

    You definitely are.

    This plan works all the time, if you keep going and trying new things and learning new things and working out what works and what doesn't then eventually you will find success. It may be by accident, it may be the result of many years of hard work but it will happen.

    You are the type of person who thought spending $100 on a blue user name will mean you get rich over night. I'm sorry that you have not found this to be the case.

    You need to work hard, try new ideas, learn new skills and one day it might all be worth it while.
