So I?ve decided to build a big website and get long term traffic from Google searches. I?m failing to make a consistent income off of affiliate marketing and I think a solid presence on Google for searches that the naive and middle aged make will help me a lot. I?m hoping to start seeing traffic within six months with the below details: I have found a niche where there are over 25 exact search phrases relating to ?using [niche] to [task]? with between 3000 and 7000 US searches a month. When I search the exact phrases in Google I get back between 60,000 and 250,000 results for each. For most of the searches the top five results are riddled with Adsense sites that have EMDs for the keyword phrase and only several pages of content. There are a few big authority sites in the top results but no consistent presence for every search. Does that sound good for a noob? Also, if I buy a domain that encompasses the beginning of the search phrases and create articles each optimized for one of the specific phrases ? for example, if you make a site that tells you how to get different jobs you could use the domain howtobecome and then optimize each article for ?how to become a sailor? etc. ? would this be as good as having an EMD for each phrase? Thanks for any advice.
