    Hey, i havent tried making a website for a niche and post articles about it, only read about it a few times.

    Found a niche with hundreds of sub categories and each have 1-30k searches, ~5-50 in competion on most, less than 100 on almost all.

    To give a example of a similar thing but not the one i mean: warcraft.
    Warcraft got games and shirts and card games and so on. Similar like the one i found.

    When i google some of the keywords the official site came up with shop in it. Only for some of the keywords though and maybe its possible even if im not first especially since it might be quite many products not listed on the official site. (i searched for 3 keywords, 2 of 3 it was first place, 1 was a totally unrelated shopping site that just sold their products)

    Was thinking of making alot of mini niche sites but considering making a big site for all their products with a adsence block and also show all products with affilate links to amazon and other sites.
    So the adsence is just "random links for the niche" and the affilate is to buy the product the user is currently viewing.
    Is it best to put one big site or several small like <niche>shirts <niche>games <niche>cardgames to get better google ranking?

    Do you think it would be good? It seems quite strange that almost noone else seem to have touched the keywords, is it any reason for it?

    Could be trademark issues

    How do i know if it is?
    And is it really not allowed to "redirect" customers to other sites? Even if its trademarked?

    Yeah that might be.

    Although I don't think it will be an issue for his idea.

    I hope its not, seems strange if it is when i would just redirect them to the sale sites. On the other hand i know nothing about that.

    Another thing, is it very negative when a big part of the top ranked search results is shops?
    For some keywords it is quite unrelated shops, for some its very amazon or wikipedia or other sites.
    Think its only 2-5 on first page though, so it shouldnt be impossible to get there. And since it says 5-50 in SOC on alot of keywords i belive it should be good.

    My intention is to make the site be a "all products related to this niche site", so people would press it even if amazon is above it becouse they want to find products of that niche.

    Can someone answer 2 things please. (sorry about the long post)

    Is it really alright for me to redirect traffic from my site to amazon and similar sites with affilate links for a trademarked product?

    How do i actually know how hard the competition is?

    Micro niche finder says ~5-50 SOC on most of the keywords.
    For the keyword with only 5 SOC:

    First 3 spots = the creater of the trademarked item, main page 2 times and the page with the selected keyword.
    They have a store on their site but doesnt sell all items.
    Title and url is not related to the product.
    The rest is very related to the product.
    86000 backlinks.
    PR6

    4th spot:
    Doesnt have product in url but in title.
    Links to shops (same as i want to do)
    173000 backlinks on main page of site, but its not only about the product (couldnt check the page that is shown on google, got error in the backlink checker)
    PR6

    5th spot:
    Doesnt have product in url but in title.
    Only 126 backlinks.
    Also a shop.
    6 year old.
    PR2

    6th spot:
    6 backlinks

    7th spot:
    10 backlinks

    So first 3-4 seems "impossible" to get past, but rest seems easy.
    SOC 5 = 5 first pages can prove a challenge, rest should be very easy to beat? It doesnt say how hard the first 5 actually is right?

    The keyword im thinking of getting as site name its like SOC 23.
    First spot:
    76 backlinks.
    Only half product name is in url.
    PR2

    2nd spot:
    217 backlinks. (for main page, not the one that shows, couldnt look at backlinks for the one that shows)
    Product name isnt in url.
    PR6

    3rd and 4th is the same as 3rd and 5th in the other keyword i wrote for with SOC 5.

    This keyword seems very easy to get on first place.

    I checked with backlinkwatch and prchecker from first search result on google, not sure if they are any good.

    Is it good or bad? Im just about to buy the host and domain name but want feedback if it seems good or bad.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do Warcraft players all have credit cards to create sales? Or do they pay their battle.net account with their parent's CC?
