    Hi there,

    I am asking myself which way is the best to target several niches.

    Let's assume the following situation (just an example):

    I am totally into cars and want definitely blog about cars

    I found several good niches like:

    • Niche on Porsche doors
    • Niche on Ferrari Tuning
    • Niche on Renault wheels
    • Niche on cheaply get rid of your wrecked car

    After reading/watching a lot of stuff about niche marketing many suggest to start a new blog for every niche. In the other hands there are those "monster" blogs which target several niches in one blog.

    What is the better approach and why? I would like to go the way to add several niches into one exciting blog but just wanted to ask if this is right and just wanted to hear some opinions

    My advice is based on what I experience with my blogs.

    I always target micro-niches and launch the site based on one KW.
    Once it starts ranking I decide if I want to add more related keywords. It all depends on available products for those keywords (I do affiliate marketing).
    Based on your example it would look something like this:

    Start: Porsche doors
    Added KW's: Porsche wheels
    Porsche seats
    Porsche cdplayer
    OR
    Added KW's: Ford doors
    Renault doors
    Opel doors

    Building the site is easy. The hard work is getting it ranked. For this you'll need backlinks.
    Building related backlinks for a tightly focused blog is a lot easier than building for a megastore.

    I want my sites to make money as soon as possible, so i want them ranked as fast as possible.
    I concentrate on one niche...it gets traffic...it makes money...I go on to the next niche.

    In the end a mega-site might make you the same money as 5 single-niche sites together.
    It only takes longer before you will see any of that money.
