How would you move from a general niche to a sub-niche with an semi-established website?

    I have created my first website a few months ago (4-5 months), and I thought I could rank the inner pages for the article with the keyword I aimed at which was found from the keyword planner and further analyzed with spyfu, but now I have realized that it is much harder to do that(rank the inner pages alone) instead of choosing a sub niche and aiming for a few specific keywords and also ranking the domain for it and not only the inner pages.

    I will not lie, I am in the weight loss, nutrition niche and it is very easy to write about, I have about 25 articles so far which covers a few topics but it is mostly nutrition.

    If you were in my current predicament, how would you go by this? Because as a first timer in Internet Marketing, it can be very difficult and not too motivational in the beginning until you see earnings, but I will not stop until I reach my goal, I cannot outsource nor will do that or stop until I rank my first website myself because knowledge is everything. Also manually building backlinks to inner pages over and over for every article is very tiring.

    I am doing Adsense and I earned $50 last month with about 200 page views per day, very little because I was an idiot which I will not lie, messed up on the keyword research and all the keywords wound up being low competition(no advertisers - no money).

    Any answers and insights would be highly appreciate.
    You learn by trying right.

    Your question scares me. I found several sub-niches that fit into one niche, so I decided to go for authority with one site that covers them all, instead of a niche site for each one. I just built it out, so hopefully I dont have the same luck as you did. My niches are all amazon product related.

    Hmmm. I read what you said twice I may be a bit tired, so please don't take my words as gospel.

    Ok, what I have done in the past is use something called a silo architecture within a wordpress blog. My sub-niches were nothing more than categories and the website overall covered them all (think of topics). Despite what people say about this site structure, if you do it properly, it works like a charm.

    By aiming for two low comp keys, two medium comp keys and two high comp keys for my pages/articles/categories, I was able to give rank them in within the top five for each keyword, sometimes the inner page and the home page were listed, not sure why that happened. I targeted twelve money making keywords for my root domain and only posted links on pr three blogs and above.

    To give more juice to your inner pages, you should add comments from different IPs and throw social signals around like Tony Montana sprays bullets.

    Do all this and you should be ranking within the time frame of 6 months to 9 months. Don't forget that domains don't start gaining true authority until after the second year, so don't expect to be rich if you're running a domain name under two years old.

    Another bit of free advice, you're in a "trust phase" between 1 - 2 years, so don't decide to blast away because you'll undo all your hard work.

    I hope this helps and sorry if it doesn't make sense.
