Your welcome.. good luck
Happy to help
This is a lot of information. thank you for your share.
Ok... as a newb, I'm reading all I can about this business to form my own idea and business plan. I can tell you I paid for some material that are not half as good as this guide. Concise, straight to the point, but very detailed. Loved it.
Now, some questions:
- I'm currently planing on focusing on Portuguese niche market (yes, I'm Portuguese). As you might understand, the quantity of large niches "available" it's huge. However, will this method work? I mean... of course it'll be harder to get reviews/initial material, or I would have to do it, but after that, would it work? I ask this because of the tools... they all seem to be directed to English speaking market. As an example, I purchased Micro Niche Finder (and tried exhaustively Market Samurai) to, in the end, use google keywoord tools, as the results were truly far from reality (much much more than in English).
- Your method seems perfect, but I find it a little risky for starters. I'm not even mentioning outsourcing, but only in paid subscriptions, you have a "huge" amount of money being paid for someone who doesn't have any income from this source, and if something goes wrong, and you don't have background investment (which is my case), it might get ugly. So, did you start like this? Could you try to define priorities here in terms of importance to the plan to work? Any alternatives to paid tools you would recommend? (and in here I do apologise in advance since you're surely using some of them - if not all - to earn your deserved money).
Once again, thanks for sharing this the way you did.
Thank you for the extremely detailed guide. I logged into BHW today feeling down and frustrated with internet marketing in general and this was the first thread I saw. Now I feel inspired again
I'm kind of curious about this as well:
I followed this step by step pretty much and bought all of the programs I've only seen one that didn't really seem to work for me but <shrug> maybe my articles were crap who knows.
Anyhow, The tools do work, The onsite SEO makes your site rank wonderfully alone plus you add in the smartlinks little trick and that's gonna help rank for quite a few other keywords as well. But this would all rely on your keyword research if your keyword research sucks and you find a keyword you think is good but it's actually crap well, we all know what happens from that.
Try checking Flippa.com Just from checking out there i've found so many niches I can't keep up. I Tried ezine I just seemed to have a hard time finding a niche/product on there but flippa gave me tons of idea's.
So, Imo and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but spend some time on your kw research follow the vids make sure that it's a good keyword and you should be able to find out quickly if it's profitable or not.

Amazing resource. Thanks a lot for the time.
especialy for the niche and keyword research
I appreciate all the effort you have gone through posting all of this here to help out fellow members. However, if your not Alaister Low then you really need to give the credit where credit is due and not take credit for another person's hard work. This industry is full of people like that already...
I am the guy in the videos.. etc.. I sold the site to Alaister..
I am running this thread for anyone that wants the info ( and he knows about it as well ) and I am happy to keep it going.
I am also consulting on the site as well.. so I am still involved with it....
Nice method, dude. I must thank you for all your effort Sharing out your method.
Sorry to keep askin questions and maybe I should be asking these on the forums I dunno. But anyhow since Keyword Research pro doesn't pull results from google anymore are you still using it? I put in very popular search terms with all selected and it still can barely pull 1k keywords which is kinda lame.
Is there another that you'd recommend? I'm about to ask for a refund for that as it's just totally useless to use at this point.
Excellent How much time it took you? to write it?
Hey mate.. you are welcome...
I have spoken to the developers, they are working on it at the moment, they are due to the changes google have made.. in the meantime I am using Market Samurai... The reason I use keyword research pro.. is the speed that it works... I like MS.. but its SLOW SLOW...
I wouldnt get a refund.. it will come through...
It took a while... at the site there are images in the module notes.. which is what you have here.. but the notes took me a while to put together
Brilliant post and one im guessing a lot of people will take ideas and implement from.
I have a question... My biggest problem is keyword research, I know you said dont worry too much about it but after looking at ezine or flippa or even specialist magazine subscription sites etc for ideas, I can identify decent niches I just dont know which ones to pick.
Its not so much about gaining the stats and the research its more a fact that if I do a google search for main keywords then I find there are a lot more established sites that I will not be able to compete with. I know this is where marketing and SEO come into play but surely the competitors know this too? I research other areas and it is the same situation. Any keywords with over 2k searches etc just seem too saturated with competition.
I have 3 sites up at the moment and im a begginer to be fair I have only earned $87 so far is it just lack of experience/confidence or am I being realistic and need to find other areas of less competition?
thank you so much for the information very organized and informative will get started on this immediately
can you put adsense on you niche sites or would that just distract from the product?
am I wrong, or there was a cookie stuffing step as if nothing could be wrong with that, in the middle of the text?
killer thread. almost makes me wanna get back into niche blogging.
