    Hey guys,

    I'm very new to making money off CPC and Amazon, I was planning on building a microniche site to make some dosh. I looked the thing up on Market Samurai, but it came up with this:

    I have absolutely no idea what to make of this. I was wondering if any of you could tell me if I'd be better off ditching this niche or if it just needs some workin' on.

    Thanks in advance mates. :cool:

    If the couple of PR0 pages are not from authority sites (on that topic), you can give this a shot.

    Looks ok, but if it is a retail item and a lot of those are sites of that nature, you might find google gives them an edge.

    Any niche is 'conquerable'. Take a look at your competitors site's. If they only have one page about the niche, then go for it. The thing is, you are building a dedicate site for the niche; rather than having a huge site with thousands of niches.

    Competition analysis is key.

    After analysis make sure you have the budget and skills to be successful in that niche.

    I would give it a go and see what happens. You never really know until you test test test.

    You have to go for it buddy, I am in a niche being run over by amazon... But am slowly killing everyone else but them. I am outranking them on a few keywords now though and the traffic is so high I really don't have to outrank them so go for it! Anything is possible especially when it comes to the internet.
