I found a sub-niche within my niche. New website, or add content to existing domain?

    Hey guys here is my situation (example is fake however)

    My niche is in dog grooming. I have a site at the moment that attracts 500+ visitors a day, monetized through adsense & affiliates.

    Ive just found a sub niche within this niche, "dog collars".

    Ive found some awesome seed keywords to target for my main monetization article (it will be an affiliate review / comparison - i've almost finished the first draft of it, 3000 words+)

    I've also found a dozens of long tail, low search volume keywords and have grouped these into content categories. Each related to my main affiliate article, so i will interlink from these pages to my main monetisation article.

    Im wondering if i should go ahead and post this content on my existing site, creating a new page / category for all this niche content, or if i should set up a new domain today and put it all on there?

    The domain I have at the moment is a year old, has no PR (due to no google PR updates) but as a DA of 30, decent - strong rankings for my targeted terms, and this content does fall under my current website's niche.

    If i made a new domain however i could:
    -Get an EMD for a medium comp 1000 search term volume, which is a prefix of a 14.800 medium - high comp search term.
    -Potentially sell the site when it becomes profitable
    -Link between this new site and my current site

    Your thoughts as to what I should do?

    There's no right answer, just depends on your philosophy... Do you want an authority site or many niche sites? Both have their benefits...

    You could always make them both.

    Firstly, Google updated it PR lately.

    Secondly, just make an article/post with that sub niche keyword/s and build some backlinks to that post and see how it goes.

    This
    I would probably test by using existing site. This will save time and probably help you rank faster. If the sub niche is profitable then you can scale it out

    Edit your opening post so as to remove your niche and sub-niche! Don't give that stuff away here... unless you want to make life 100x harder for yourself!

    Is not EMD if not penalized does not give any advantage, have not tested myself but read somewhere that with google new philosophy EMD does not work any longer.

    Authority is becoming more and more important. I'd post it on your existing site.

    I meant to put that in the existing site too.

    The right answer is you should do both.

    I had considered writing 2 articles for each content idea. One for a new site and one for a new domain, and then trying to rank both, so id hopefully have my 2 sites on the front page of Google.

    Should I set the new domain up on separate host, and not add my G+ authorship, or should i add my existing G+ authorship to the new domain, and just add it with my current hosting package?

    Thanks

    If i were you i would instantly work on it on my existing site, and if i found it profitable i would be making multiple sites around it,
    lately i found a niche and i tested it on my old site, it got a lot of traffic, so i made another which also went well, and now i have 3 more in pipeline targeting that niche
    Don't wait act now!

    Do you use the exact same monetisation method, and the same content idea's, just reword it for uniqueness?

    For example, if my idea was, the top 5 dog collars, a comparison/review article of 5 with affiliate links to buy. Post this on existing site, then post related content on existing site. If it takes off, reword the comparison article, and set it up on a new domain, with the same affiliate links, and then produce related content articles on this. If that works, then make a 3rd site, so you could potentially rank 1st 2nd and 3rd?

    Should i go for separate hosting, and avoid using my G+ on my 2nd, and potentially, 3rd site? Also, should I between my main site and the new sites i create, or just keep them completely separate?

    I would register a new domain, if you can get an emd and have some funds to throw at seo then that is the better option in my opinion.

    Back in the days I would make new website alone and go with that. Nowadays I would expand my current website and go only like that (especially if it is ranking well) but I think you should expend your website and if niche is profitable enough make completely separate website on different IP and possibly even different hosting company just in case so that you can be sure you will dominate your sub niche.

    Thanks, this is the approach i'll take. I'll focus on my current site first, and then roll it out across a 2nd domain, separate, domain.

    Thanks
