    Hey all !

    I've been lurking on this site for about a year and I have gotten the courage to take the plunge. A couple months ago I have purchased a site and I have written only 6 articles. i understand that this is nowhere near enough. I'm ready to fund an ad campaign, seo company, blog writer etc. My niche only has around 2000 searches per month according to my research . There are also not too much subtopics within this niche to write about so I'm limited in terms of content. I'm not sure if this niche can be monetized or not . My question is should I cut my losses before fully diving in . I can't find any cpa offers for this niche or amazon products that could be linked through the blog . I'm at the stage where I want to start sending traffic there but perhaps I'm being too cautious. any help appreciated .

    How do you plan on making money with it? No cpa offers...no amzn products...can you create your own product? Would it be worth it? Search volume seems too low to bother. Last resort you can look @ offervault.com to find cpa offers for your niche.
    You might be working backwards. Try making a list of nice looking cpa offers, see what their search volume is then make your website for the best looking ones.

    As uncutu said, research about the monetization/niche before buying of building a website. You kinda went backward, buying a website THEN searching what to do with it.
    If you can't find any way of monetize it, i'd say stop the work on it and use it for your PBN (if the metrics are good).
    Depends on how much money/time you already spent on that site ofc, but as you said in the title of this topic, sometimes you need to cut your losses.

    keep it. recycle it as a PBN. problem solved.

    create your next site with $$$ in mind.

    thanks ! and it definitely helps to know that feeling I've been having wasn't incorrect. so what would be a good recommended search volume for my next site . And since I am a beginner would you guys recommend keeping this site to experiment with SEO ? or just scrap it and learn from the new site ?
