    Hello guys!

    First of all thank you for all those methods and guides that you post here and share to help others to slice a piece from the cake!
    I got motivated also, and I decided to make a (or later even more) review BLOG.

    Planning to advertise Clickbank and Amazon products, since I'm not good at SEO, and getting traffic at all, so my point is quaity> quantity.

    First of all, you have to pick up a niche, right ! The problem starts here!

    Example:
    Lets say that I pick the niche "sleep disorders" or something like this. Create a blog: sleepdisorders .com.
    And then I just post articles and reviews about snoring, nightmares, flu, insomnia things etc... maybe under subdomains ?

    OR should I have to be more specific, because the term "Sleep disorders" is just too wide to being a niche?
    So this way I create a blog about snoring "nomoresnoring ,com", and just write about it, how to stop, what to do, how to treat?

    I'm asking you guys to show me the way, how a good review BLOG looks like, because I don't want to ruin things at the start...

    Thank you, I keep this post updated !

    OCT.26-DAY1: Hosting and Domain bought. Tomorrow will setup wordpress with theme

    Hi, I appreciate your interest on this idea. What i suggest is instead of hoping on a niche its better to dig deeper and find micro niche and make sure similar keyword domain name is available. No need to go for subdomain. as thru wordpress Blog categories you can differentiate the permalink structure and its google friendly.
    2nd thing you should work on is Quality content ( Like you said yourself).
    Build the blog like an authority site and sound like a pro so that the visitors connect to you and go through your blog and may/may not choose the offers you placed around your content. If possible place a sign up form for subscription, so that you can mail them updates on new posts also on any product promotion.

    I would suggest not going the sub-domain route, since domain authority is shared by directories but not by sub-domains.

    I think sleep disorders is a decently sized niche. Instead of subdomains, individual micro-niches can be categories - and as you write articles, you can put the article in multiple categories. So for a category you would have a url like sleepdisorders.com/insomnia/ and sleepdisorders.com/snoring/. You can then write quality content on all types of sleep disorders and make this an authority site on the subject.

    Think outside the box. Get rid of all the most common niches people target out of your brain, and go after something obscure. Write loads of content and don't try to over-think things when you are this new or you won't get anything done. Setup up Wordpress and do a little research on this forum about onpage SEO. Then ask more questions once you get to that point. There are planty of people that can point you in the right direction.

    Blog is up and running. After a lot of reading I decided to follow this guide :
    blackhatworld.cXm/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs.html
    Sry cant post links yet...
    My Niche is House and Garden related and have 4 related reviews on the blog so far,with Cb products.

    Got ~30 clicks overall on the products, but no sales unfortunatelly.
    Tomorrow will add some PPC and planning to do an amazon shop subdomain.
    More updates coming soon :)

    Got some click today also, but no sales.
    Found s good WP plugin that generates CB product posts automatically. Just have to schedule it. And Sine I'm not planning to rank my site by SEO or Search engines, it doesn't matter if thats a copy or not.
    Also found some good sites related to my niche and started to post my links. Hope tomorrow another sales will come.
