I have posted the method some time ago https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/m...-in-travel-niche-prove-to-work-method.814252/. Method completely based on true story, due to political problems in the country I targeted, tourism market there is failed, I have been waiting for reopening but it has never happened. I had to move to other place and now I am at Carribean, firstly I worked for local tour operator at Internet marketing department. After 6 years of online freedom, working for someone was a terrible experience. When you work on your own, you are the one who makes plans, taking decisions, control expenses and decide where to invest and what to buy for your business. Long story short: the contract is finished, I will never work for someone again and I am here to build again from scratch my travel empire. Some friends asked me: why again you are building travel sites? Actually, an answer is easy, I have been working in travel industry for over than 15 years, the most money I made online was from travel niche. I enjoy traveling, I was making living from travel industry till today in 5 different countries and maybe you would not believe, but travel market has plenty of low competition keywords and untargeted markets, the only tricky part is monetization, but during this journey, we will talk about it a lot. Plan in Short I will target 2 different destinations All sites will be in 2 languages (English and Russian) Sites will be divided into 3 groups. The first group will focus to make money withing travel affiliate program, second by partnering with local suppliers and third will combine both mon. methods. I have 2 different counties to target, don't want again to put all eggs in one basket. I will start with 4 sites: will add more during process Site 1 - Destination 1 - Monetization with Travel Affiliate Programs I target very popular European holiday destination, when I did kW research I was surprised to find plenty of hotels names (Hotel keywords) with high search volume and low competition when I have done deeper research came out good keywords for blog posts, flight tickets etc. But before you excited and decide to build a site around this keyword and make money from hotel booking affiliate programs, read next paragraph. Very important point to run travel affiliate offers on travel sites is ti check how tourist getting there, to some countries travel agencies selling all in one tour packages (tickets, hotels, transfers, insurance). But there is plenty of destination where most visitors are independent tourists, they do research, buy tickets, book hotels, renting cars etc. So it is very logical if most tourist coming to the country with all in one travel package, your conversion rate with hotels and tickets will be close to 0, but if country popular with self-travelers, then you have a good destination to work with. In my next post, I will share more things I know about market and keyword research in travel niche. And we talk about travel affiliate companies, payouts, comission and conversion rates. Site 2-3 - Partnering with local suppliers + travel affiliate offers Both sites will target the same country and will have mostly same content but in 2 different languages, most tourists like 85% who come to this travel spot, talk these languages and happy I, as one of them is my mother tongue. This 2 sites completely different from site 1, as like 95% of tourists coming here are buying prepaid tour packages, so most income we will make partnering with local tour companies. I will not add any hotel keywords, but car renting, taxi, airport transfers etc can work good with affiliate offers, apart of it, you can sell books(travel guides), maps. Site 4 - Local partnering or travel Affiliate program I did not plan to make this site, but during keyword research, I find this: https://gyazo.com/bcb9237676b9fff572c6d7ad4e7aebe2 It is small popular attraction withing my niche, the main keyword has 1800 monthly searches, you can see competition above and second popular keyword is 800 monthly searches and 2nd and 3d places in a Google search are youtube videos. From every booking, you can make average 150-200$ and all that you need to do is to forward it to your partner. It is a good site to make some cash fast as ranking for this keywords would not be an issue, apart of it, you can easily find niche blogs to build links with good price. I find affiliate program within this niche, but working directly with the supplier will make you more cash. I plan to add more sites, but currently, I can't handle more work and invest more than I planned. NEXT POST: - I have mostly done with keyword and market research, I will put it all together and update you tomorrow with details, advice and my toughs keyword research for travel sites. - Choosing design and engine for my sites, I will share with you premium travel templates and I plan to edit one of them for travel affiliate widgets and banners, will share edited version with you. - I will need to count amount of articles I need to order/write I hope some other member who works with travel niche will join the journey, give advice, exchange links, experience etc. If you have any question regardint travel niche feel free to ask, I help where I can.
