    Hi guys!

    I currently run a website with a DA of 30+ and it currently gets around 7.5k uniques a month. I have been doing some research into some niches I want to make affiliate sites for. I tend to focus on making quality content rather than adding hundreds of articles with thin content.

    I've identified a new niche that I think I can rank for and there's some good products I can attempt to sell for it too. The problem is, my current site has nothing to do with this niche.

    I've tried before making a new site from scratch and it just takes so much time to build a good DA, get out of the google sandbox, build backlinks (without $) etc.

    Do you think it would be a good/bad idea to make my site contain a section dedicated to this other niche? My theory is that because my site has good authority already, it will help the site quickly get into rankings and gain traffic. I've identified lots of Longtail keywords that I can try and rank for too, which have really weak competition.

    Would love to hear your thoughts,

    Thanks!

    There are two ways to go about this situation at hand.

    Create a separate section on your existing site and let your followers know about it. However, if it is entirely different (apples and oranges), how'll you benefit from the existing audience? Just a question!

    Second way and the one I would prefer is to set up another store and because you already have a following, just promote it on your existing site, blog and social media pages. This way you'll have a different store dedicated to this new niche and later on, you can extend it around the same niche and the relevant products as well.

    Keep it simple for the user!

    I my opinion, go for it. You are always free to cast your net wider, no issue with that. I have seen bloggers in marketing write about their hobbies which have nothing related to their blog's topic.

    I would argue that Bella's 2nd suggestion, a new site, kinda what you were hoping to avoid, is going to be your best option. But as vere said go for it. Worst case scenario its a learning experience if it doesn't work out. However I beleive its best to focus on them separately.
