    I could never understand what the actual difference is between a blog which makes money with affiliate programs, and a niche site..

    Aren't they basically the same thing?


    Is the difference that the blog is an ongoing thing, which has new content added all the time? And the niche site, is more like adding content, ranking, then leaving it alone?

    What am I missing?

    A Blog is a type of website - sort of like a magazine. The niche is the subject that you write about in the blog. Niche websites are often targeting very specific subjects in great detail, with the aim of selling advertising and products relating to the niche.

    A niche is a product or service .

    A niche can have sub products and services.

    A main keyword can be your niche.

    A blog can be written about your niche = product or service.

    A niche can be anythink in the world but as a internet marketer your niche needs to earn you cash , so think clever .

    Don't blogs taget very specific subjects in great detail? I still don't understand the difference between a "niche website" and a blog.

    Blogs first started as online journals, then changed over the years. Now they can be just a journal or specific to a single niche.
