Alright, I posted a half assed journey that I stopped posting on not too long ago but I still am working on the website. It's a low priority. I'll keep the site up and let the domain simmer but I can't see it being anything I want to keep doing much more work on. It was something I completely rushed into and I don't regret it however. It got me started. It also told me what I needed to do better. And it still has potential. So I'm not giving up on it entirely. I wouldn't even recommend looking for it to see how awful it was. I'm one that prefers to start over instead of fixing things. It's just easier imo. So here's to starting new. After what feels like endless hours of sifting through niches and testing keywords, I found one that looks promising. I'm interested in it and it seems "easy" to do well in. I put a spin on it and I'm coming at it from a different angle with a few long tails, which gives me a bit of confidence. I need to decide if I want to make this an authority or split it out through MNS, which I'll decide after I finish KW research. Found this niche after writing down interests, and forgot about it, looked through everything on CB. Couldn't see anything I felt I could promote. Came back to interests after letting three niches go and I'm feeling good about it. It's a hobby so I can see myself writing on it and it's something I have done. Right now letting a tool I found here churn out some long tail keywords. I'm going to then run those through Keyword Planner, check searches and keep the ones between 100k - 1k searches, then I'm going to check them on Moz for Competition and see which ones are between 25-50% difficulty. Then I'll use moz toolbar while manually search each keyword. Traffic is going to come from: Forum Posting Craigslist Reddit / Social hopefully from organic search. I'm going to have a squeeze page set up that will offer a free ebook/discounts and collect emails aswell. Something I haven't done before. I want most to be done before my trials run out, so by the end of the month essentially. I'm leaning more towards Authority because I feel like managing more than a few sites will be a hassle and I don't want to keep spending money for domains & hosting. Also, I have so many ideas of where I can branch this into and how to promote it. But searching for a niche has been the most stressful thing I've done and I'm ready to just start going, even if it means rushing something else. I feel pretty good though and I think I'm doing things right so far.
