    A little while ago I decided to register a domain in a sub niche within the beverage industry. At the time it seemed like a great idea, as the keyword was perfect and seemed to be highly targeted.

    So I went ahead and tossed up a site, did the basic link wheel for a few articles and everything was fine. Page 1 no problem google, msn, yahoo.

    Google has bounced me around pages 1 and 2 but that?s ok with me as a lot of this is still me learning and testing out different things while tracking them.

    A few days ago I find myself on page 8 and now I am pretty much stuck there. Here is my problem.

    I have the word ?cheap? in my domain name, which leads people to think they are coming to my site to get these things for a cheap price. I am not a store and have nothing to sell so I have been making a bit of money off Adsense and CJ. It was a few bucks a day, which is cool, because this is sort of new. It would range from $3-$8 for Adsense and an occasional conversion from CJ.

    I am stuck because I have no idea how to promote this now without actually selling anything. There is only so much I can write on this topic. The only thing I can think of at this point is doing reviews each time a new item is released but that is not good enough. I even got a little crazy and looked into drop shipping, although for this product I don?t think that is a smart thing to do.

    Have any of you ever had something like this? A site where you are ?supposed? to sell something, have nothing, and run out of ideas? I would like to get back to page 1 / 2 obviously although I do not wish to actually sell these products. Maybe it?s the wrong way of looking at this (cake and eat it too, etc).. any suggestions?

    You don't have to sell anything....

    Make it about getting "cheap" whatever beverage something... DIY, deal of the day, etc. Let adsense be the related advertisments and push articles about how to do it yourself, find it cheaper, get a great deal, etc.
