Hi, This is my Amazon Niche site journey to keep me focused also to keep track of my progress and take some ownership. I have seen a lot of these threads that have motivated me especially Hekke's journey (thanks for an awesome journey thread and the ideas / techniques that you are sharing in there). I am also following Nick Flame's method here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ffiliate-niche-sites-insanely-profitable.html as a guide (thank you Nick for the useful guide) any other recommended reading that you guys think is worth it please let me know (I would be very greatful) but I think the best way is to start and make mistakes as I have been reading and not taking action for so long! So the plan: Keyword research Find an expired domain with some decent metrics (looking for TR,CF,DA,PA all 15+) which needs to be relevant or brandable to the niche. Content creation: I am going for long pillar articles with reviews and quality information with lots of words 2000+ (going to aim for 3000-4000 but lets see if I can get to 2000 words of quality content first!) and also some relevant content that talks about things broader in the niche (I don't care if these rank I just want my long tails to rank in the main pillar articles) Some web2.0 back linking and some social shares to make the site feel / look more real. Maybe build up a bit of a fake community presence with some comments on the blog as well Build up my PBN and link that back for some juice Hopefully bank a little bit of money! Track everything! Extend out the niche or start another site using the same steps after lessons learnt. My first goal is to make $10 per day with this site (I think it should be able to earn more but its my first small goal!) I've almost finished up my first bout of keyword research which will serve as my first lot of content so I can start putting content on the site. I am currently on the hunt for the domain. Should be back with an update tomorrow. Thanks for checking in.
